Hello, good people!

My name is Wilfred, a script and scenario writer for a Tokyo-based game company.

When bored, I read sci-fi/fantasy and a bit of horror. I play video games (a lot), too.

Also see: anime, manga, TV shows, pizza and ramen, my stagnant Literature degree, dogs, JRPGs, staycations, podcasts, True Crime documentaries, FromSoftware games, random Spotify playlists... the list goes on.

So nice to meet you!


Disposable email services, or whatever you call them, rule.

I just listened to this creepy podcast episode and now I can't sleep.

Sir, this is a library. Drop the ritual materials and leave the building.

Surely I'd be able to afford an amazing vertical ergonomic mouse once I get my *does math* next four paychecks?

Welcome to another episode of "Did aliens create this, or are humans simply awesome?"

Am I too tired to read this book or is it just another case of the Lazies?

Tip for people seeing friends join counter.social -- it is not a good fediverse neighbor! Myself and a bunch of other admins blocked it a couple years ago because the people who were running it were unfriendly to the point of abusive!

They admit to some of this in their own FAQ: counter.social/faq.html

Get your friends on good servers. πŸ’š

(Like here, for example! I'll send an invite code to anyone, and any Shop member can make invites)

A few quick tips which helped me settle in 

- If you're used to Tweetdeck and are on the Mastodon web app, go into Settings/Preferences/Appearance and check the 'Enable advanced web interface' box. That'll let you have multiple columns and each column can then be customised from the bar at the top.

- If you find the federated feed overwhelming (and I do), consider removing the column entirely. I live on my Home feed and the Local .art feed, and that's quite enough content for me :D

Caved in and bought Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.

What a fun game!

So I tried out the new Mastodon app for Android and it doesn't seem to allow viewing of Federated posts (or maybe it's there and I was just stupid).

Guess I'm sticking with Tusky for now.

Anything scary lately? A book, a movie, a TV commercial, or a real-life encounter?

I can't remember the last movie I watched in a cinema.

Started my third playthrough of The Witness (free on PS4) and as expected, I consulted a walkthrough for the tetris-like puzzles because I can't get myself to learn about the rules. πŸ˜…
