Julia Shapiro (@cool__slut) is releasing her new album "Zorked" tomorrow (I’m very excited). Today I’m revisiting her 2019 album "Perfect Version" in preparation.

The album sounds relatively simple at first, but repeat listens unveil an emotional depth. ​album.link/i/1455260300

“Metroid: Dread” is dreadfully great.

They flawlessly combined horror elements with the tried and true Metroid format to make something truly exciting to play.

This is a long shot, and awfully specific, but:

Does anyone know of a movie or book that is about a young woman befriending an older woman who becomes a sort of stand-in for the younger woman’s mother?

I don’t know if this exists, but it’s a story I’d like to know if it does.

I don’t know if a movie like this exists, but it’s a story I’d like to watch if it does.

I’ve been revisiting Norma Jean’s seminal first album the past week. It still holds up after almost 20 years. album.link/i/723520506

I don’t know what y’all are talking about, the new iOS 15 Safari design is great. It yakes a bit to get used to, but after a few days, the swipe gestures for tabs feel very natural. I especially like opening a new tab by swiping on the address bar.

Of course one of the best parts of any new hobby is getting to buy fancy new tools to play with!

Today is the first day of @themncec’s “10,000 Lakes Rally”, and I’m excited to be participating! This is my first road rally, so I don’t really know what to expect, but I’m sure it will be a great time. themncec.org/rally-of-10000-la

Google search has a dark mode now! Better late than never I suppose.

The Wario Land games for Game Boy don’t get talked about nearly enough. They’re fantastic platformers, with far more whimsy and character than any of the classic 2D Mario games.

Now I just need to find one that is in a reasonable trailering distance 😅

You can find non-running RX-8s for very cheap (example: humboldt.craigslist.org/cto/d/). Assuming I like working on the Escort, this could be the way I get an affordable sports car. While the engines are temperamental, I’ve heard the RX-8s are an absolute joy to drive.

I’m thinking about trying to find a non-running Mazda RX-8 to fix up. Great idea, or terrible idea?

Today, I’m thankful for Swift’s `typealias` feature. It’s been saving me sooo much time during a major refactor I’m working on.
