Thinking about pivoting my art career to becoming a highly successful comic artist who includes character profiles in every issue which have a character's theme song and then just very elaborately and slowly building up to a character whose theme is Silvia Night's Congratulations over several years. And then quitting.
Interesting as hell #accessibility research: You know Galvanic Skin Response? It's electrical impulses on your skin that respond to your emotions, the same thing you use to measure emotional response in lie detectors for example?
You can teach people to consciously control it. It's used to help people with locked-in syndrome communicate!

Listen I know spelling it Atelier when it's pronounced as A-tell-ee-(h)e(y) (technically the German pronunciation, the French one is even harder to write out) is a bit annoying but I want you to know it's everyone who really cares about spelling's fault
That's right kids, it is absolutely 1000% possible to just spell stuff how you say it and be understood. I know because I live in a society where we communicate in text without actual spelling rules and also because it has been like that historically
My university's campus store (sold books, stationary, snacks, that sort of thing) went suddenly bankrupt in a pretty controversial way, and the store was sealed with the furniture and a bunch of product still in it. It's been a year and it's still like that. Several generations of students have started university and walk by this sealed storefront without ever having seen it open, likely not even knowing what it is. That's pretty ridiculous and weird if you think about it.
cranky, selfcare Show more
I really don't care for like, selfcare content at all. Mostly because what is selfcare (past checking on your basic needs) is so intensely personal and most advice and aesthetic of selfcare things are like, depressive for me. Not all selfcare advice is bad for me personally, but it's hella counterproductive for me to give in to feeling like staying home and take a break, structure and plans and spending every day having done *something* is much better
I know this is like, a sort of productivity mindset lots of people suffer under and maybe it will turn toxic for me too, but am privileged to live a pretty relaxed lifestyle with lots of downtime and it does not do me good

On a serious note, it's just completely and utterly wonderful how seriously Umbrella Academy takes the relationship between Hazel and Agnes. There's comedy, but there's a core of this being a valid and beautiful relationship, but it doesn't end up being a comic relief subplot at all.
Like, a fat, bumbling character and an old donut shop lady and they get a genuine, actual real romantic arc. An older woman who doesn't meet conventional beauty standards gets to be the redemptive love interest to a hardened contract killer.

Here's my pitch for S2:
It's just Hazel and Agnes solving crime together and Hazel is always "oh no this is Time Crime" but it never is, it's just regular old Miss Marple-style murder and then at the end Agnes solves it with her knowledge of birds and/or donuts
Cha Cha becomes the obligatory cranky cop who keeps having to deal with the amateur sleuths but secretely loves them
thank you for listening #UmbrellaAcademy
Hello friends, does anyone know a #letsplay series of an Atelier game with a let's player you like? Preferably women or nonbinary people, but most important to me is that they have a chill vibe, don't shout a lot and don't spend a lot of time editorializing (opinions are super fine but you know the ones, I don't want to feel like I'm on video game reddit... again... *shudders*)
@toadheart *the ghost of dijkstra appears before you* "you'll never be satisfied with your own language eeeeither ooOOOoOOOooOOOo"
All I wanted was to make a form in Python and it took me like 50 lines of code until I was neck-deep in complicated stackoverflows explaining what passing by reference vs passing by value language architecture means and writing lines like
command = lambda 1=1: changeImage(img[i])
"In FORTRAN 77, variable names beginning with the letters I–N had a default type of integer, while variables starting with any other letters defaulted to real, although programmers could override the defaults with an explicit declaration. This led to the joke: "In Fortran, GOD is REAL (unless declared INTEGER)."" (From Wikipedia)
I'm, uh, huh????????
