if you haven't seen it, "steamed hams but it's a ghost trick chapter" is the best execution of "meme but its a different thing" i have ever seen, and you do not need to have played ghost trick - you get enough from context

cant believe that the next generation is gonna grow up without flash games. theyll never know the feeling of blowing stick figures away with a sniper rifle, or making the little stick figure dudes fight each other. brings a tear to the eye

this evening I got curious and ended up doing just enough Flash reverse engineering to get an archived copy of a very bad television tie-in game from 2009 which was mentioned on The Boney Island Whitefish podcast working, so …now that exists 🤷🏻‍♀️

I already hated apple but now I hate them even more. They've intentionally priced foss software out of being able to use basic functionality on their devices. A messaging app can only run in the background to receive notifications if you pay the toll. Utterly ridiculous.

Uhhh, fascist Alex Jones is on mastodon.

Guessing fediverse admins may want to block that instance (it calls itself "The pro-liberty social network" which is fash speak)

Just a heads up to anyone who isn't a fascist lol

hello new people!!! 

i could never pick *one specific thing* about fedi that's my favorite, but if you made me choose i'd say the way we take care of each other here. this place really is a community more than anywhere else i've ever seen online. be it financial or moral support, people here are so incredibly kind and caring.

you will definitely enjoy it here infinitely more than anywhere else online if you give the place a chance. don't be afraid to hop instances if the first one you try doesn't suit you!!!

four basic rules of fedi to make sure you have the best time here possible:

1. use cw's when appropriate
2. always boost posts seeking financial help
3. caption your images, if possible
4. have fun!!!

Oh for the record, I got one! Gotta wait for it to arrive now, ugh :P

Awww Eddie Izzard is out as trans and only uses she/her now. As someone whose gender struggles resonated a lot with her "lesbian tomboy" and "executive transvestite" feels back in the day that's really touching to see

@art I appreciate the thought, but would you please take me off of your list for boosting and following?

Hey digital friends, any tips on picking a relatively cheap drawing tablet for a beginner? I'm wanting to get into it so wanted to ask!
Thanks in advance!

Promare spoilers I guess // Random thought about Trigger's work 

I do enjoy that they brought back an overly giant and beefy dude (Gamagoori in Kill la Kill and Captain Ignis in Promare, for example) that changes height based on on the perspective and scene and honestly I love that visual choice there

Promare spoilers I guess // Random thought about Trigger's work 

Honestly I find it amusing that Trigger seems to REALLY enjoy at least one of their characters in each production to be wielding some sort of staff -- including Ryuuko's (from Kill la Kill) scissor blade and Galo's (Promare) Matoi staves, haha

Watched Promare again and oops forgot how much I love it

as a moderator i want the ability to say, here is the reason why this person is banned. I want the option to leave their posts up, and to point at one or more offending posts. I want the option to purge their timeline but keep direct links to toots functional, while showing a note about their banning

basically I want people who are looking into a problem to get more useful info than "they are here" or "they are gone"

you can't earnestly tell me GOOGLE can't spare the resources to host text that syncs with a video

youtube removing community captions is so fucked up honestly. it's a massive fuck you to those with hearing issue, language processioning issues like some can have with autism, pretty much all non english speakers or those in the process of learning which media immersion is an amazing way to learn I may add. and there's literally no reason to do it than google doing what they always do, killing off services and features because fuck you
