lol remember when some dudes on a weightlifting forum had a 10-page argument about whether "every other day" means three times a week or four times a week

When you have a mod that just changes the mechanics or rules of a game, it's very difficult to describe it without using the word "gameplay." So far I've managed it though. The only place I use it is in a tag on moddb, because I figure that's what people would be searching for

It's funny how early CD-based games on computers sometimes still had terrible MIDI soundtracks because computers and compression still weren't good enough to play bitstream-based music, speech and sfx simultaneously

But with the console CD add-ons, most of the non-FMV games were like "wtf are we going to do with all this storage space? Might as well give it a killer soundtrack"

Actually that's not true, there's this video about why music in Miyazaki films sounds "pretty" from a couple years ago that I found interesting, but I found the guy's tone kinda unpleasant and condescending. youtube.com/watch?v=4bZ19hnr8v

I'll have to watch more of Adam Neely's videos, his style reminds me of suckerpinch. They take very complicated concepts and simplify them in a funny, approachable way that makes me want to dig deeper

Last boost: this is the first time I've ever seen someone explain a single sentence of information about why certain things in music sound good to people and holy shit I want to know more

I wish any music class I ever took had talked about the ratio of note frequencies and why some notes harmonize and others don't, and the significance of different tuning across different cultures. I might have actually gotten interested in music as a kid if anyone tried actually explaining it to me

context: adam neely's recentish video testing out the A=432hz thing with wild frequency tuning systems he got from questionable new age sources on the internet
