shop talk, static site + rss 

now that i'm doing everything by hand and not even using a static site generator

i wonder if there's an easy way to generate a rss.xml based on a bunch of static files and their last-modified dates

i could just keep one up to date by hand as well, which also gives me more control over what appears in my feed but

there has to be a better way right?

video streaming service gripe, localization 

i actually hate how fucking everything gets localized in germany to the point where people look at you funny for enjoying original dubs

video streaming service gripe, localization 

i hate this thing every single movie / tv show streaming service does where they offer something with the original dub but use a german-translated video source.

so if you want to watch, say, a pixar movie, all the spoken lines are all english but every written line of text on screen is localized into german UGH

i get that it's a distributor ting but come on

remember when facebook inflated its reported video engagement numbers by 60-80% and everyone scrambled to ~pivot to video~ and how were now stuck with shitty autoplay videos literally nobody ever asked for on every news site

"I also got a bad taste in my mouth from Twitter supporting kinds of speech that I don't particularly agree with, and I began to feel like putting my toys and art there was just adding value to the network. For a while I felt that the tradeoff was that the art I published there still enriched my life and the lives of my friends. At some point, though, I started to feel like the balance got out of whack, and I could do more good by putting my work on alternate networks and giving people a reason to get off Twitter. "

All cultural producers with some degree of audience and influence should really think about this: what structures do I validate by my presence? What and whose structures do I reinforce? What other places can I advantage?

magpie borb: PEEEEEEEP

sometimes i'll think about the "do video games cause violence" debate from around twenty to thirty years ago and its implications on modern society and i wonder often about how as a result it's completely poisoned our ability as a culture to tackle the normalization of hyperviolence not only in media but in real life

wishing i could just be left alone and play morrowind and make mods for the rest of the year
