Pinned toot

recent indie game video boosts 

I've been playing some truly awesome small indie games in the last few months. I archive my streams over at, and I work to get closed captioning on them within a week of uploading.

If you're looking for some game recs, I'd suggest checking them out. Just about all of them take between 10 min and 3 hours, so these are quite small games by conventional standards. You can subscribe to a Peertube channel w/ a Mastodon account, too.

I write. I . I play way too much Fallen London. I collect tattoos. I will not call posts "toots".

I like learning to be more imaginative in devising solutions to difficult problems. 🎊

people act like americans dont follow medical expertise because they are stupid but i think the real issue is that people dont trust the medical system because they are so used to the for profit system fucking them over

If you have $4 and like cyberpunk, help me put some food in my kids' mouths!
"This is secretly the greatest and also funniest cyberpunk point and click adventure game on Steam. Very low-fi art style but the gags are just too good to pass up, and a lot closer to a "real" cyberpunk dystopian future than most favorites of the genre."

nhl hockey 

It's always scary to see someone without goalie equipment make a move to block a shot on goal. It makes you suddenly aware of how many bones and joints and faces are exposed even in the fairly protective regular hockey gear.

nhl hockey 

I'm really glad to have caught the last few OT periods in last night's Blues/Bolts game while waiting for the (ultimately bumped) Carolina game. πŸ˜‚ That was a wild ride and a unique viewing experience. The energy those players still had in the 5th OT was beyond impressive.

Even during today's Carolina game, the announcers are still talking about it. And yissss, I am watching hockey at work. :skyhearteyes:

πŸ€” I'm stumped in my attempts to set up pxe/network booting for my Raspberry Pi 3b. I'm trying to piece together a solution from and I want the dhcp to come from an Synology router, but the tftp to come from the Synology NAS. Currently, tho, I don't even see any dhcp requests from the Pi to the router, which makes diagnosing stuff... difficult. Even if my dhcp option settings are wrong, I should see *attempts* to get an address, right? πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ


Who spent their weekday yesterday attacking the site until it went down repeatedly? 🀨 Surely there are better sites to be attacking.

Tonight's Bioshock stream is rescheduled to Friday night. I have a headache. πŸ€• I'm going to get some momentum on this damn game soon. πŸ˜…

video games, orcs must die 

For reference, I'm watching Vermillion Phoenix's archived streams:

video games, orcs must die 

I'm not willing to fuck with Stadia (yet?), but oh boy I want to play Orcs Must Die 3 sooooooo bad. Just give me more of the same as all three previous games in some slightly new combination. I played 190 hours of OMDU and 40 hours of OMD2, and have missed them tremendously.

Is there a word for stuff like guerilla gardening but not gardening?
Im thinking of stuff like putting up benches, removing hostile architecture, graffiti, posting signs.


Fight Club 

This examination of Fight Club is so good: Maggie Mae Fish starts with the idea that Tyler Durden is the actual narrator of the story (not Jack) and takes off running from there.

There are too many good parts to highlight, but there's a discussion of monoform in the middle that I found fascinating. The idea is new to me, and seeing it as a distinct technique has me mentally revisiting a few movies.

Also: Sixth Sense and Fight Club came out in the same year. 🀯
