whenever i'm reminded Smash Ultimate (Switch) shipped with(?) 28 hrs of music and 850+ songs, many remixes of classics, i'm absolutely boggled. (world record, surely?) nintendo's nonpartisan, joyful celebration of 40+ years of game history there is really lovely

and turns out it has an A+ Galaga Medley:

according to an incredibly comprehensive Outrun/Sega AM2 blog Matsuoka's oeuvre literally inspired Outrun's music:

(seriously, click around this blog, a decade+ of fantastic research awaits)

got there via the blogger commenting on this also-interesting Eurogamer article about artifacts discovered while moving Sega's longtime HQ:

Matthew Walker's "Why We Sleep" Is Riddled with Scientific and Factual Errors - Alexey Guzey guzey.com/books/why-we-sleep/

playing handheld Switch the other day i noticed inputs were snappy and instant, and realized how laggy my HDTV was with it. ugh. so that put me off TV gaming. 

a sweetie sold me a haxed "New! 3DS" to mess with. apparently the games are .CIA files you install with an app called FBI. someone had fun there. 

my YT recs paint a disturbing picture of who they think i am

loving these furry memory foam slippers / house shoes. first time i've had any since mom got me a pair of moccasins as a kid, which lasted a couple years

i sometimes have this weird trait where like, i'm aware i don't have something in my life, but it never occurs to me i can change that. so i haven't had slippers for 30 years, in this case. 🤷‍♀️

XnViewMP has pretty histograms imo

(it's also quite a good image viewer / organizer and got a rare update today. glad this is one app that can follow me to lunix)

any thoughts? wondering if i should get the Wasteland 2: Director's Cut or the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Bundle that comes with Wasteland 2: Director's Cut and Wasteland 2: Director's Cut

i guess one factor is the Wasteland 2: Director's Cut is $29.99 but the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Bundle gives you Wasteland 2: Director's Cut ($0.00) and Wasteland 2: Director's Cut ($0.00) for $44.99, saving you -$44.99

what's a good way to refer to a specific younger (in this case) sibling when you have more than one?

We know the traditional gifts for a wedding anniversary, but what are the traditional gifts for your traniversary?

1st year: paper / correct gender documents

appreciate this guy's attention to detail and willingness to be critical in analyzing the two U.S. NES controllers.

commencing new winter project: trying to stay warm at home without using building's inefficient/expensive electric heat

my primary tool will be wirecutter's pick for plushest/warmest robe, not yet arrived. alas no one's thoughtful enough to make sufficiently long robes for tall people so i'm supplementing with thigh-highs (no complaints, really)

slippers are rando $20 compared to $80-$100 for better-name brands that have worse reviews re: longevity (as ever, capitalism's turning everything to garbage)

if i ever tried getting into Smash again one of the primary benefits (?) would just be knowing who all those generic fire emblem sword characters are
