oh god i'm always referencing things that i figured were common cultural touchstones but nobody else has ever heard of, yesterday i derailed a meeting by using the phrase "bob's your uncle", which i guess might as well be "23 skidoo" or "what a shocking bad hat" or something

lol, i know "bob's your uncle" but i now have no idea what it means. sounds like a great derail, though!

fwiw i'm running a quick twitter poll and 11 of 12 so far have heard of this cat poster

Karl Malone, Saturday, 12 January 2019 18:29 (two months ago) Permalink

i don't think anybody actually knows what it means, as tends to be the way with those sort of sayings. asking the question around me tends to be dangerous as i have an unfortunate barely repressed tendency to go off on long rambling monologues at the drop of a hat, ending up talking about the importance of the corn laws or some shit. i can't imagine anybody actually caring but people tend to look at me as if i'm saying some genuinely fascinating shit, which i can't quite work my head around.

i sometimes regret not becoming a teacher. i didn't become a teacher because i hate kids and i somehow didn't realize this was the actual motivation of many teachers.

man Super Mario World, I wonder what it would be like replaying that? It was one of the first games I ever got and I feel like despite not picking it up in 20 years I probably know every level inside and out

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Thursday, 31 January 2019 21:38 (one month ago) Permalink

i hadn't played it for a similar amount of time and it was the first SNES game i ever played. my friend charles got a ton of money for his first communion (i got about a 1/4 the money he did :( ) and bought a SNES and a bunch of games. luckily charles was very bad at video games and he would usually let me play to get past levels.

ive really enjoyed replaying it and i love the way it looks but i don't think it's quite as good as super mario 3, which i replayed a year or so ago and has more interesting levels imo

hey stevie you might like echo night on ps1, it's a first person puzzle game developed by From Software (of later dark souls fame). its pretty fun and bizarre. i've never really heard it talked about, i think its relatively unknown. i'm only aware of it because the person who gave me my ps1 gave me this game with it

boobie, Thursday, 31 January 2019 21:46 (one month ago) Permalink

Donkey Kong Country was so good and looked better than anything else on a SNES, surely it couldn't have been any better. I've got a Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 for my kid's birthday, and haven't had a good play on a games console since about 2001. If he doesn't like it - it won't go to waste.

calzino, Thursday, 31 January 2019 21:51 (one month ago) Permalink

I've got a raspberry pi set up this way and it rules. But Donkey Kong Country - which looked great 20 years ago on a 20" CRT TV - looks terrible on a 55" HD flatscreen. The best part are some references in the game to how AMAZING the graphics look and how every other (contemporary) game looks like shit in comparison. The super flat colors NES marios 1-3 and SNES super mario world hold up much better.

i'm not really "into" it deeply, but just the whole theory of endosymbiosis is really interesting - a lifeform (like a mitochondrian) that becomes integrated within another lifeform (a cell), with its own set of DNA. it's fun to imagine a human being wholly subsumed into a different lifeform, into a new symbiotic relationship

so I have a chronic habit of buying books and just not reading them, and also my bookshelves are all full so I have like 7 or 8 stacks of books scattered around my apartment. a couple months ago I decided to go through them all and make a short list of stuff I was most excited about reading first, and wound up with like 25 books, so that's what I'm pulling from. So far I've read Charles Burns' "Black Hole" and now I'm 1/3 of the way through "The Great Gatsby". This is my full "short"list

I picked that up when I went through a cyberpunk craze a few years ago and bought any cheapish cyberpunk comics I could get my hands on. I think the only thing I actually made it through reading was Paul Pope's "100%" which was NOT cyberpunk and tbh was like on the better side of mediocre but not really excellent

It’s a good feeling.

*including at lunch at work, something I never did before at this job as I like my coworkers and it feels slightly rude
