You know what I like about old videogames? There's no bullshit of "winning". No Chosen One story. No weepy cutscenes. No checklist of shit you have to do. Only 1-3 hit points, one wrong move and you're dead. You play until you die.

Maybe you get to write 3 letters on the high score list, maybe not. You will *never win*, only die. Just like life.

Chloe: "I like to shoot people."
Chloe shooting: Never hits anyone.

The Wandering Earth movie looks truly dreadful, like they saw Space 1999, Armageddon, and Snowpiercer and said they didn't want such hard science, and certainly no Western individual heroism.

I should watch it. I would need a *LOT* of alcohol for this. … I do have a couple bottles in the bar.  BUT IS IT ENOUGH?!

This is my 1.14-prerelease test world, so I have shitty gear there, only acquired by looting mobs or trading with villagers. I can only craft shields and tools. When I move my 1.13 world forward I'll be geared again.

I do a little while drinking my coffee, and come up from the mines to see this shit.

I haven't had one of these in years. I think because my normal villages are always very compact, so the siege would be outside the walls, but this goddamned village is spread out, so the zombies can spawn inside. I was starting to fence off that far section to reclaim for my farms, anyway.

you: email written in all lowercase, including "i", no paragraph breaks, and the sentence lengths would challenge a pearl-diver's breathing.
Me: Delete.

It is super weird when you power down your iPhone, and try to hit the home button to restart it, and of course it does nothing and doesn't click… because it's just a solid glass area. The click is all haptic.

All my GeekPoints expired many years ago, that was the point where they stopped being relevant to me.

I think day one they opened, I bought a rear-view monitor mirror because my cube was situated with my back to the aisle and I *hated* it.

I still use my 8-Bitty controller from them all the time, to play Atari games on my iPad, and my USS Enterprise whiskey glasses.

Well, fuck. ThinkGeek is finally being eaten by StopGames. They haven't been good in 10 years, but still… early '00s, I *loved* ThinkGeek more than anything.

StopGames isn't likely to be long for the world, ripping people off on overpriced first-run games and trade-ins doesn't work anymore.

The retro encabulator video just kills me. The almost-legit parts lull my brain into accepting, and then it spouts nonsense.

Playing more Obduction, and portal from one world to another and then a third portal = 10 minutes doing nothing while a loading indicator fills up. How did this ship in this state?!

VLC should have a feature to add CRT scan lines and VHS fuzziness, it's weird seeing older video with perfectly sharp images.

Twitter decided to start sending me notifications again, apparently because I don't check it often (and only xpost, but they probably don't know that).

PowerfulMothering followed me. I… uh… you got entirely the wrong guy, lady. Bot advertising to ladies. Whatever you are.
