  • What I'm Playing: Looney Tunes World of Mayhem

    What I'm Playing: Looney Tunes World of Mayhem

    official site Yes, yet another iPhone/Android gachapon game, this time based on our beloved Saturday morning cartoon time with The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show. I have unkind thoughts about this genre of game, but you know, if you make one with some character I will play it to level cap, and sometimes pay for a … Continue reading "What I'm Playing: Looney Tunes World of Mayhem"Read More »
  • Finishing Happy!

    Finishing Happy!

    Previously, on Happy! Done. Parts of this worked out well, as a violent fairy tale for Christmas. The mob boss's sister's reality TV show, bruja grandmother(?), and the sort of return of her son was both annoying as hell (fake-ass social media & TV people, ugh), and sometimes the only good parts of an episode; … Continue reading "Finishing Happy!"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Happy!

    What I'm Watching: Happy!

    So, this is adapted from a Grant Morrison comic. Grant's a crazy person; one of my favorites, but I think adapting his work is a memetic hazard, immanentizing the eschaton. Take Chris Meloni from Law & Order: SVU, and make him a washed-up drunk ex-cop Nick Sax. Add a CGI blue flying unicorn, imaginary friend … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Happy!"Read More »

    Sigil announcement Sigil page: BRING ME THE PEWTER HEAD OF JOHN ROMERO! Romero's E1M8b Romero's E1M4b GZDoom runtime: Modern graphics and sound support. Kinda shitty launcher to pick your WAD files, you better know how the Doom command-line works. GOG Ultimate Doom: You'll need the DOOM.WAD from here. Don't use their DOSBOX runtime, that sucks. … Continue reading "New Doom WAD "Sigil" From John Romero"Read More »
  • What I'm Watching: Shin Godzilla

    What I'm Watching: Shin Godzilla

    Trailer 2 for Godzilla King of Monsters 2019: While I was very disappointed by Godzilla 2014, this one looks good, especially Mosura is beautiful and dangerous. Recently I've watched the Godzilla anime, which are silly but sometimes fun. So, I felt I should rewatch Shin Godzilla, the most recent live-action Toho movie, by Hideaki Anno. … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Shin Godzilla"Read More »
  • Lessons from Gutenberg

    Lessons from Gutenberg

    Lessons from Gutenberg Rian Rietveld Painfully awkward video of Dragon Naturally Speaking vs Gutenberg: By 2:48, I was saying "Motherfucker!" to my non-voice-controlled screen. It has 46 minutes to go. 💣 The codebase of Gutenberg is difficult for all of us, because no one in the wpa11y team is a skilled React developer. So it … Continue reading "Lessons from Gutenberg"Read More »
  • The Mother of All Demos

    The Mother of All Demos

    December 9, 1968, Douglas Engelbart's presentation of NLS and teleconferencing: Youtube: This is at 360p, most other uploads are at 240p fuzzy mud, I'd love to have a good HD one where I can read the text. Alas. TheDemo@50 "If in your office, you as an intellectual worker were supplied with a computer display, backed … Continue reading "The Mother of All Demos"Read More »

    "If anyone reads this post I'm sure loads of people will tell me that my problems are all my own making and if only I invested in an iPhone all my problems would go away. Well you know what? APPLE IS A SYMBOL OF PRETENTIOUSNESS AND IGNORANCE - YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW HOW YOUR … Continue reading "Apple is a Symbol"Read More »

    WordPress updated

    Went ahead and updated to 5.0. And immediately hit a "No update required" bug, had to shell in and disable the cache. Great testing, Automattttttic. Took a look at Twenty Nineteen theme, but even after completely customizing the CSS, it was screwing with my layout in unpleasant ways. In 2019, blog columns are 640px wide, … Continue reading "WordPress updated"Read More »

    Why Chinese People HATE Chinese Brands Fake Rolexes in Shenzen Why is Everything in CHINA FALLING APART? ADVChina channel on the youtubes And much more. There's a good lesson there, and it's not just in China, they're only the worst-case end scenario. I look at this shit and see us in 20 years.
