if you do not know the joy of Minsc and Boo, his miniature giant space hamster, from Baldur's Gate (Jim Cummings) youtube.com/watch?v=GFzWbbNO_I

oops stayed up until 2am tearing apart the Baldur's Gate music. It is separated by musical bar and then played via scripts so it can be dynamic... but it also means I can create new arrangements by just putting all the pieces in a playlist and moving them around. very satisfying.

I gotta start getting better at not saying "this is offensive" and start saying "this is harmful" so I can stop people from telling me "welp, everything is offensive to someone, what can you do"

TIL there is an entire ebay market where people sell GPL software for $19.99
