I still demand DVD commentary on streaming services. It's such an amazingly simple way to convince people to watch the same show twice that I'm surprised it's not common parlance yet.

I hope Lucky the Cat shows up in more Google stuff like Momo does. What a cutie.

Also added, anyone saying "Hello, chat" as a greeting, especially if they post a meme immediately afterwards.

brother: talking about animal crossing fishing
me: have you tried stardew valley fishing
brother: no, i haven't played stardew valley because i'm not an always-online lesbian

Someone tell the beats guys that "It doesn't matter how good the device you're using is, it's about what you're listing to on it" is a REALLY bad marketing idea for a company who's product sells itself entirely on brand power.

Added to the list of red flags of chatroom quirks that denote a person with an insufferable personality: getting in trouble, then finishing your message with a dash for punctuation as though you were interrupted. "I didn't know that was a problem-" etc

The sheer power of planefuckers is distressingly insane to a degree I can't adequately put into words. They just wield more raw power than us.

Alright, EA, Epic, Ubisoft

You have 4 months to beta test and build Linux variants of your launchers and your games so they work with Easy Anti Cheat.

I *will* play Knockout City and Watch Dogs 2 on my Steam Deck if you let me.

See I could do with a nature documentary with comedic timing and fun narration but When Nature Calls's dubbing is painfully cringy.
Hellen Mira's narration is great but that's about it.

The best way to make a service die is to just not use it. Even one less person using a service cuts down its effectiveness.
Even using it "ironically" boosts its reach.
Things on the internet thrive on attention.

I can't believe that I have to tell people Audacity isn't spyware when you can learn that by searching the web for 5 seconds.

I don't like seeing restaurants advertising "Welcome back we missed you so much!!!" while, in my state, kansascity.com/news/coronaviru

A dæmon summons a scroll; you attempt to translate it, and discover it's the spell Glyph of Dust. At the bottom in tiny text it says 'ᴛʀɪᴀʟ ᴠᴇʀsɪᴏɴ ᴏɴʟʏ, ɴᴏᴛ ғᴏʀ ᴄᴏᴍᴍᴇʀᴄɪᴀʟ ᴜsᴇ'.

There seems to be a GTA 5 game mod, or something, that seems to make HTTP requests directly to mastodon.social, with insane frequency. Intentional or not, it's basically a DDoS. The requests used to come with HTTP referrer "nui-game-internal" but I just found they switched their user agent to mask as a browser.

Here's a real game theory for you

Minecraft servers come and go so often because it's inherently boring to be a part of something that's deliberately impermanent.

screenshot every post you like, download every film you love, every album, video, drawing, book, and meme that means something to you. they are all ephemera. nothing on here is eternal. you have to play the part of the archivist; because no one else will.
