so hi i just got fired.. now would be a real good time to support a broke trans girl. you can find my games at http://fadingroots.itch.io and buy me a coffee at https://ko-fi.com/fadingroots. would definitely appreciate a signal boost.
my games, if you wanna by them, include Exodus, a game about sad trans angels on the run, and Wreckage in the Ring, about giant robot wrestling.
Another warmup sketch of a wolf, done in Clip Studio Paint for @Epidiah Ravachol's Wolfspell, coming soon to kickstarter!
In case people haven't read through it, I consider this retrospective compilation of Vincent Baker's writings on how RPGs work to be one of the foundational texts of roleplaying game design and theory.
Regardless of what style of RPG you want to make, any RPG designer would be well served to read it carefully all the way through.
Whether the language you speak refers to the drink as "tea" or "chai" depends on whether that country had contact with China by sea or by land. If you got your tea via the Silk Road, it's probably called chai. If you got it by boat (like the English and much of western Europe), then it is probably called "tea".
You might have forgotten to watch this with headphones on lately.
Ok, the Music From Outer Space EchoFXXX board is all soldered together! It’s time to bite the bullet on a power supply that I can use for a big pile of modules. I think a computer power supply will give me sufficient amps to power a bunch, since they’re actually all pretty low power.
Then I need ±5V for signal. That will be a little harder. USB is 5V, so I should be able to do it with a pair of USB chargers, but I’ll need several amps to power what’s likely to be a largish number of Arduini.
You might think Björk is an electronic art hero of mine because of her music.
It’s because of this video.
Reportedly, in Tokyo, local gangs have started using drones to transport drugs across the city.
In response, the police are using net-carrying drones to try to capture these packets mid-air.
The gangs are counter-attacking with their own net-drones to try and drop police drones.
In a statement with the Tokyo police, they say they "Haven't had this much fun in years"
The other half of Def Sensor just sent me a pile of parts to turn into a voltage-controlled echo box.
The module being explored here:
I'm excited to build it! I hear some really weird sounds in there that I want to explore!
Skeletor D'Kay started off as Skaletor, but the sax player wanted to play jazz, so they replaced her with a second bassist. Now they're two bassists and a drummer.
(Most of these had some little story in my head when I wrote them down. There are probably 50 bands mentioned offhand in the book. Robokitty (danceable electronica), is definitely the most popular, according to early readers. Their rival is the Cannaskadines, who are ska bros jealous of their popularity and hot for their bods.)
The statistic buried in this story - only 24 marijuana convictions were erased. That’s a tiny - & insignificant - number of the 20,000 people in BK w/ marijuana convictions eligible to be vacated.
too many people want to be artists and we need to gatekeep harder
capitalism has produced a society that undervalues creative work and forces people to work long hours, leaving little time to pursue creative interests. people attempt to square this circle by pursuing art as a living, but capitalism is only interested in profit and paying workers as little as possible, forcing artists to pursue only commercially viable projects and fight over crumbs at that
OMG I’m so excited about this. I’m going to see Laurie Anderson’s two new virtual reality pieces at MassMOCA.
