Time for a post since there are a bunch of new people!

I'm an at Wirecutter, though I'm going to try and not talk about work here because being in in 2018 is mostly existential horror and gnashing of teeth.

Hobby dilettante. Leatherwork and printmaking rn.

hmup to talk comics that make you feel; video games that are short, and cinematic or emotional; and tea and food.

Mostly tea and feelings, if I'm being honest. Well, that and my cat.

So stoked for how gorgeous this is going to be, even if I don't give a shit about the show itself.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries getting remade and set in 1930s Shanghai instead of 1920s Melbourne.

todays mood is when a bird goes hop hop hop, stops, cocks its head at you, then goes back to hop hop hoppin

Also hi, I made a pay-what-you-want one-page boardgame called Wreckdivers! Try it out, it's fun, I promise

Am I back? Maybe.

Am I using this to procrastinate work? 💯

Homestuck has started updating again, and at this point I don't even remember who all the characters were.

tbf, I couldn't keep track of them past the original kids and trolls, and that was barely half way in the original story

Shoutout to my brain for ruining my whole evening after the most minor of setbacks. Great job!

One of the sure signs that we're in a garbage version of a cyberpunk reality is how much current trends rely on just slapping some japanese on it and calling it a day adidas.com/us/nmd_racer-primek

There's no greater betrayal than finding out you needed butter to be "soft but not melted" just as you pull it out of the fridge to start baking cookies

Wise words on technology creep from a former coworker:

"But again, be forewarned. We were told this same thing with the advent of word processors, and in the end, we didn’t go home early because we got our work done. Instead we output more letters."

Someone please figure out how to bottle the brief and wondrous feeling of lightness and freedom you get after a haircut.

Followup: I would consider moving instances, but Mastodon still kinda sucks if you want to migrate so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The fact that I'm so old that I don't quite understand the use case of having accounts on multiple instances also proves that I'm so old I should have an olds.town account

@tbarribeau

I'm excited for this but also for him to do all of this very fast

Really excited for the super realistic Sonic the Hedgehog, so we can see his natural diet of stealing eggs from birds nests and eating insects
