petty complaining, programming Show more
oh gee thanks I was worried this productive, positive discussion about getting started in game development and moving forward from there was going too well, thanks for interrupting it to start a pissing match about Object Oriented versus Functional Programming for no reason.
(I'm not bothered, not because I think the PocketCHIP does that already, but because my desire to play Pico-8 games on the go does not extend beyond ten dollars.)
(Also it would be cool if there was a handheld devoted entirely to playing Pico-8 games but honestly I'm not too bothered by that not being a thing.)
I wish there was an open-source handheld game console. I don't mean the pocketchip(this thing: https://getchip.com/pages/pocketchip ), I mean "a knockoff Gameboy Advance with four face buttons, shoulder buttons, a circle pad, and an SD slot." Something that is purpose-built for playing games on it, and only that. I want something like that, and if I hadn't spectacularly failed Digital Electronics, I'd probably be trying to make a prototype and a kickstarter out of this.
I've started a personal art challenge that I'm going to share with all of you because why the hell not:
It's called 20 x 25(pronounced Twenty By Twenty Five), and the premise is that you pick a specific thing you wanna get better at drawing, and then draw 20 of it a day for 25 days.
To keep it interesting for yourself, I recommend writing up a list of 25 themes, one for each day. Get creative and add variety within each day, too- maybe combine the current theme with a future one! Here's my day 1 page:
the title is LITERALLY "Japanese Bookbinding"
i get that east asian bookbinding isnt like. a commercially common option, but its not like its THAT hard to do with machines. sewing machines exist already. failing that... shrink wrap a stack of pages and make the customer bind it themselves. its not like they dont know how.
what the fuck, why is a book about japanese bookbinding NOT bound with japanese bookbinding techniques
i dont have friends i can talk to face-to-face. i dont have anyone i can get a hug from. i feel guilty for going and seeking these things out because im in a ldr and i know i want more than just a hug.
i havent had a friend to talk to in real life since last year. i havent had more than one friend at once since junior year of high school, which is when my HPD fucked me over and alienated all my friends.
im alone and i hate it and i want to be loved
do not reply with "hugs" or some variation thereof.
@KittyUnpretty Absent any correction from yourself, I am going to assume that Clark Kent's antifreeze of choice is the classic Ethylene Glycol, known for being very sweet, and probably eerily reminiscent of that super-sweet strawberry soda from Christmas In Kansas.
(Feel free to steal this, lord knows I've stolen a few of your ideas for a fic I'm working on.)
Alright, book recommendation time:
If you like planetary romances(think John Carter of Mars(think "man with sword on Mars with aliens and crystal tech")), then you'll probably enjoy Black Amazon of Mars. You'll probably enjoy it even if you're indifferent, as I am and did. It's good and despite being written in the 1930s does NOT consist entirely of bloated prose.
It can be read here: http://www.feedbooks.com/book/4844/black-amazon-of-mars
I printed it out and bound it in the traditional Japanese method because it was easier that way.
@ everyone who commented with good and valid responses: I'm sorry but I instead chose to print and bind Black Amazon Of Mars by Leigh Brackett. I have no clue if it's going to be any good but fuck it, I'm about to find out.
