Pinned toot

“Watch a member of Insane Clown Posse try, fail to kick Fred Durst in the head” is a great way to start a Monday.

Most of the images featured in my Facebook 2018 memories video were pictures of Captain Picard.

I complain about how slowly I’m making progress in Breath of the Wild, but I guess it’s my own fault. If I spent as much time playing video games as I did going to work and writing software then I wouldn’t have anything to bitch about.

My favorite part about emoji art is it looks different on different platforms, and I think that’s cool.

Netflix is telling me it’s a “feature” that it plays a stupid sound effect when launching the app, stopping the music I’m listening to.

Netflix now plays audio immediately when launching the app on tvOS and will stop anything else you’re listening to. This is after complaining about auto-playing trailers messing with audio. Instead of fixing that they just double down on interrupting any music you’re already listening to. God they suck.

The local corner store + deli has partnered with a local fancy stationary store and now they’re a sandwich + alcohol + cards + paper store.

I didn’t mean to play a few hours of . But it happened.

With more and more people making semi-professional internet videos there’s one thing that annoys me to no end. Everyone is using those circular lights and it reflects off people’s eyeballs and looks super weird.

An end of an era. IBM is selling Lotus Notes. When I worked at IBM in the 2000s it was crazy how hardcore they were about Lotus Notes.

Imagine a high school football movie where it’s halftime and everyone is in the locker room, and the team is kind of down due to their performance in the first half. They are not having a good time.

Then the coach walks in and says:

“Fun. Fun! Think about fun, you know what it is!
I got this. You got this!
My friend is by my right.
I got this, you got this.
Now, you know it!”

And then the team cheers and they go to win and have a great time.

I rode a horse tonight in Breath of the Wild. I didn’t really see any benefits from it. But I’m not going to give up, I’ll try riding an e-horse again soon.

I’d tell you what music I listen to but you wouldn’t have heard of them.

@gabek I feel like what people mean by “shitposting” is saying something shitty that ruins the original intent of a piece of popular culture. Turning something into a meme. But maybe I’m also confused?

@gabek shitposting is essentially just acting a fool on the network. for examples, see: @realtoddhoward

I admit, I don’t really understand what “shitposting” is. I’ve looked it up and saw that it means posting things to throw off a conversation or purposefully make the site unusable. But I don’t feel like that’s what people mean when they say it, because I don’t see people actively trying to attack Mastodon via stupid posts.
