journos shouting hype almost always translates to them being late to the party, and being convinced that if a band could get attention without them noticing, they must have been bamboozled by nefarious means

why would you want to talk about modular synths instead of just playing the modular synths. in an ideal world everyone everywhere on the gender spectrum would be playing modular synths together and never talking about them

The self is lava; podcasts are the rocks we leap on to avoid contact. Actually listening to them is a bonus.

I have very little confidence in my own taste, if someone on a messageboard posts that a thing I think is good is bad actually I get all kerfuffled

If someone on a messageboard posts that a thing I think is good is actually bad, I don't question my taste at all, I just assume the other person is normal.

one month passes...

i have been playing loads of roleplaying games over the last decade-ish trying to recapture the way i felt when i was 12 and despite lots of cool stuff being out there i am happy to report that feeling is ephemeral and tied directly to the powerlessness, imagination, time, and friendship that was only available at 12yo, it can never be recaptured alas.

Is this about ILX's halcyon days again?

Snark aside, that is incontrovertibly true, although in the process of chasing nostalgia in recent years I did end up discovering a few CRPGs (some old, others new) that fleetingly recaptured my teenage fascination with the Infinity Engine games. My natural inclination towards single-player CRPGs and continued willingness to suspend disbelief as a deliberate corrective to the killjoy that is academia no doubt helped lower the bar (I got my multi-player kicks from RTS's back in the day), as I've never experimented with tabletop campaigns (too demanding and too gregarious, not to mention my group of friends at the time wasn't interested anyway).

I was making an obvious reference to the first post in this thread, as well as engaging in customary nostalgia for when this thread was better.

A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.

when i hear "30 years" i still automatically think of 1980. oof

Oh damn I made a very similar error just a couple of hours ago (how old is a person born 1984 vs 1994).

Suggest the mods introduce a “it’s time to stop posting” timeout, cos some of you are really spending too much time here.
