Is there seriously still no way to buy digital music from bands signed to traditional record labels without giving a hefty cut to giant asshole tech companies

Here, I wrote a little blog post detailing how I go about making these appointments with libraries when I travel.

Do you like visiting museums? Here's a thing that I do when I travel, that you can do too.

Look up local public libraries and university libraries. Click around their website to find their "special collections". Contact the library & ask if you could spend some time in that collection. They will often give you a "finding aid" and ask you to tell them what stuff you'd like to handle. Do that instead of or in addition to visiting local museums. It's like a museum but you are the only person there

Finally got around to playing 10 Beautiful Postcards and it is utterly delightful and endlessly surprising and everyone should spend hours wandering around in it harmonyzone.org/10BeautifulPos

@rabbitboots aaaaaah I just saw your homemade tracker posts that sounds like FUNNN

I have taught my son that opening up the inspector on any webpage and adding "contenteditable" to the body tag allows him to freely type the word "butts" anywhere on that webpage and I have a strong suspicion that this knowledge will shortly spread to his entire school

There’s a Commodore 64 game called “Where’s My Bones” and someone should write a book about old computer games that are actually shitposts archive.org/details/d64_Wheres

aaah I came up with a cool idea that fixes a bunch of story problems I was having. I wrote a _bunch_ of new stuff for the game today (in comparison to... literally any other time I've worked on the story)

might actually finish this thing someday after all

Do I know anyone with experience doing doom mods or TCs?

Added the ability to choose between conversational options / implement dialog trees. Hard to believe I’ve gone this long without it!

I have discovered some Forbidden Java Code that Eclipse won't let me type without hard locking forever, cool

I kind of need to type that code, though

So I've been listening to some of my old CDs, and I put on Aphex Twin's Come to Daddy EP for the first time in... a lot of years.

And, like, there's a lot of really incredible music on that album, but also my memory really downplayed what a fucking juvenile edgelord RDJ was

It crashes when I hit page down but one milestone at a time

Welp, I've finally got an interactive instrument loading interface! This is pretty fun to jam with now

My problem was a new word I'd written to simplify saving & restoring variables - saving 3 values takes up 7 slots on the return stack. If I rewrite it to do some of the work at compile-time I should be able to make it only use 3.

Stack overflow. Increased the return stack size and everything worked tickety boo.

(I don't actually know what Bud the Spud is about, don't @ me)

Even Stompin' Tom Conners - a man who wrote songs about anthropomorphic PEI potatoes and how hockey is good - wrote a song about getting the fuck out of Winnipeg lyricsfreak.com/s/stompin+tom+
