    Oh. And I got onto TikTok. And I love it. Without reservation. A total blast!

As an observer or participant? TikTok seems so diametrically opposed to Hubski... I'd actually love to see all of yall lipsing some dumb pop song for a second.

Observer. I don't think I'm a creator-type. Over my lifetime I have invested tens of thousands of dollars into musical equipment, GoPro cameras, drones, etc... and then I don't lead a life that uses them at all. I'm not jumping off cliffs, or playing gigs, or surfing, or whatever.

I walk my dog. I write. I sit in my back yard and enjoy the big Douglas Fir tree and all the birds in it.

So I'm just not a Millennial creator-type person.

And I should be clear, I'm only on the dark gothy side of TikTok... there's a lot of lip syncing to music... but the songs are more death metal, hardcore EDM, and stuff. Camilla Severin and her clown character #Jojo is pretty much the epicenter of my TikTok experience. (darkrose_assassin, darkcorruptedbrains, xox_toxicat_xox, and of course camillaseverin are kinda the few people I follow, who then lead me to the other "dark side of TikTok" types of creators. I love the costumes and makeup.)
