pandemic vignette: I haven’t eaten oatmeal in months because it’s been too hot, but I keep one of those big 42 oz cylinders on my counter anyway because it’s a good tablet stand for when I’m washing the dishes. I’ve gotten good at pausing a YouTube video with my nose when my hands are wet

[playing a video game where a random background NPC is named Rose] damn…Homestuck really did make this world

system dialogs for the app Things always seem a little bit more profound

Finally finished Xenoblade Chronicles a full decade after I started it on the Wii. There is a lot of stuff to like in there, but it is spread way, way too thin. It's like that feeling of spending too long in the Hinterlands in Dragon Age Inquisition, but ten times over

I love when a game that normally gives you quest instructions like "Defeat all enemies (2/10)" serves up something like this

One time like fifteen years ago I was in an airport in Michigan, and they had the Weather Channel on all the TVs, and during one of those automated segments without a meteorologist on screen they played the outro to Layla. That time and place is still my association with that song

curious about a shirt I saw on the T that just says “Favorite restaurants in London,” no images or other text

general social media curmudgeon shit 

holy christ i could not possibly care less about your fucking dall-e results

it occurred to me today that my tv is now the worst and oldest screen i own and the futon in front of it is the least comfortable seat i own. changing priorities, i guess!

it feels like backyard fireworks season should be over by now. and yet…

every year or two i decide that maybe it's time i learn to write shaders, but i'm always wrong

eyeing those new macbook airs (macbooks air?) that go on sale tomorrow…i do have a working mac so it’s hard to make a case that i _need_ one, but man it would be nice to not have the fans spin up because youtube is open. and also to finally get spinning hard drives out of my life

an interesting new thing i've been getting into this year, unwillingly: migraine headaches

i need a “but doctor, i AM pagliacci” button for when twitter advertises my company’s own products at me

shoutout to the youtube algorithm for giving me bebop recorder today youtube.com/watch?v=5zzCYFL9zf

If you watch a home Yankees win on TV and you want to replicate the in-stadium experience, it's important to play the Sinatra twice in a row so you get the stomach-churning effect of returning to the original key on the repeat

compromise: i'll comment my code, but it will all be in character as admin from da share zone

love when someone runs an ad on youtube but doesn’t have their intro situation locked down, so i can hit the skip button while they’re still showing some publisher or distributor’s logo and i never find out what their product is

damn, glad someone finally told them about this option
