Hey! My lovely geniusfriend and all round renaissancemansdude @matthewseiji made ambient sounds for my 90s style girlhackertopia. Have a listen: caraellison.co.uk/

I love the work ‘hinky’ so much

no one is saying I’m a rising star in writing games rn bc I don’t do anything online and do most of my hard work in person instead of constantly performing my role as waitress of the internet. I’m doing more heavy lifting now than I ever did and generally I’m more invisible which is bizarre

Remember when I won the game journalism rising star award even tho I’d been writing about games for 4 years and was just leaving because I did everything I wanted to do? sexism

I want to show people my workkkkk

I think half the reason people start their own game studios is because they work for like 15 years on multiple amazing beloved concepts that could just get released and make money but then it gets canned by the money people when they accidentally sneeze one day

Love And Other Drugs was a good film! I enjoyed that Hathaway and Gyllenhaal seemed to authentically want to screw each other’s brains out and then accidentally became mature humans by accident Believable 10/10

*extremely deadpan voice* jordan peterson has announced his plan to run on the lobster dickwaving platform of government, based on mr orange segmentedman’s theory of wangsmanship

Ok now Glenn Close is upset and I feel like she’s had an entire lifetime of michael douglases and this is the last straw

Watching Fatal Attraction. Seems to me that older richer women are terrifying to men because they can’t be controlllllled by the ideas and opinions of one aaaaaaaaaaaa *screams*

games culture enjoys the idea of video games more than it enjoys actually video games

when i was a kid i had the sims, and this being europe it had french and german on the packaging

underneath "the sims" it said "les sims" and "die sims", incidentally these are the two most popular things to do on the sims

I think largely I’m content as a person now which really makes me feel boring. Maybe I will have to tell my therapist I am sad that I am happy
