Forget Elon Musk... the people who come up with the names of Pokémon are the real geniuses.

I'm listening to music, writing music, thinking about archiving all of npm, drawing some icons, enjoying a peaceful saturday before all of my deadlines happen. good times!

scifi is a bit too ambitious about the future. it's gonna be the same as always: me, restless in bed, 142 years after-the-fact realizing the best retort to that thing that person said one time

A Monday deploy to production... before lunch. As you do.

I am very excited about how my work is progressing! everything is working really well somehow and my ideas are becoming practically implemented. very cool. feels good.

Added the parallax of the mountains/cloud scene i worked the entire day. Still needs some speed tweaks. What you think?

i got a new pair of headphones and a new headphone amp, so you know what that means! (Second Reality is 25 years old?!)

@robertwgehl oh my goodness, yes! doom stole so much music, haha. my examples were more of legal re-purposing. :)

somebody should do a cover album but it's all the songs that made it into video games that were originally pop songs or love ballads or w/e. Like Sweet Dreams in Sonic 2 or Narcissus from Cannon Fodder. know any others?

I can forgive websites having weird keyboard shortcuts if they stick to the one convention that "?" brings up a guide.

@rosa its true. gmail for example is one I sometimes use them for.

I rediscover every month, when focus is on the wrong window, that Vim navigation keys (J, K) work on the Mastodon website.

@a_breakin_glass *witnesses somebody starting something* back on your shit I see. you fool.

*witnesses somebody finishing something they started* w...wha. how did u do that??

@grainloom whatever one you copy and paste! probably whatever one you wrote first. or maybe its the one that has the most stuff you forget. you know the one. that one.

@grainloom no worries. I use capybara (web site testing DSL for ruby/rails) and I'm still constantly going "capybara test?????" so I think you're good.

what people think programming is: creating new things

what it really is: copying and pasting errors into google. copying and pasting that one class file. also that one Makefile. and of course that one capybara test... you know the one; yeah that one!

@Gargron a while ago! another truly tragic misstep
