"Illium" was another name for the city of Troy

"-ad" is a suffix that can be used to mean "the story of"

Therefore "The Illiad" is properly translated as; drumroll please...

Troy Story

I got to do the HG101 podcast tonite, I like HG101 quite a bit as they will deep dive into the history of a game which I greatly enjoy as it gives context to the creative process behind them.

Movies are still an incredible medium. The best ones I've learned not to think of as "audio-visual" but as:

Take a stage drama, something experienced abstractly and internally, and now find the most expert actors who can fill this, and now set it all /in the real world/ while giving you the impression of something personally remembered. This is it's own kind of magic.

So I would say, if you have a local cinemaphile organization you should maybe check out what they bring in, I'm no expert on film but just going to these, it's always worthwhile and interesting.

Tonight I saw The Lacemaker (1977) with Isabelle Huppert. Few thoughts:

1. Isabelle Huppert is fairly indescribable in this, this is a movie that is externally simple but then she is like a black hole that everything orbits.

2. There is something so miraculous to me about movies, and especially now when a movie from almost 50 years ago can feel so immediate.

3. I've made a ritual of going to the cinema; I think it can give you space to appreciate a movie the way that watching at home can't.

this is a Pretty Dang Small Screen but it's mine and it fits my apartment and I'm so happy :)

I got the cable thingie that i needed to hook up my new tiny sony PVM (crt). Here is mario, framed nicely by the bezel!!!

Has anyone ever done a technical writeup on Pole Position for the ATARI?

@kcsaff wishing you a happy B-day (sorry I know a bit late) and hope things go great in SF! Thinking of you lots and sending good vibes.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is way better than you might expect.

About to hit a nice milestone with paradise never, which is (sort of) a vertical slice. Since rebooting the design to be more straightforward things have gone much better, though slowly...

I might blog about this.

@kcsaff Hey!! Thank you, I got your text :) We definitely gotta chat. Now that I'm a dad I have so many questions like, Where Can I Buy A Telescope, and Is Anime Harmful To My Child
