My first playlist (of what will be many, I assure you) is exclusively of songs that, from what I've heard (or otherwise the first 10-15 seconds of listening), sound like they''d pair well with this specific hyperspeed GIF of Elaine dancing.
(I found this version of said GIF by searching Tumblr for "Kirby Music")
Hi, everyone; I'm tarah, otherwise known as lobst. I've drawn a few comics that people have seemed to enjoy, and programmed a game demo that won 10th-place in a 140+ entry game jam despite having no sound. My ability to finish any individual project has been stymied by mental health problems for over a year, but I've been seeking treatment and making progress. I've also been streaming videogames on weekends. Watch this space!
Stream update: Despite a major setback at the worst possible moment in the Giygas fight, I completed the remainder of the game after a combined total of 10 hours of streaming. Bright side, it allowed me to get more use out of the sidebar graphic I whipped up pre-stream just for the final dungeon (spoilers, obviously):
Going live in ~5 minutes, to start a fresh playthrough of EarthBound: http://mixer.com/lobst
PSA: For anyone who's wanted to make a PICO-8 or TIC-80 style fantasy console game but felt alienated by the presence of a price tag, there's now a free/open-source Python-based alternative called Pyxel https://github.com/kitao/pyxel
Food Show more
Dessert pie (the more popular pie from Undertale) is out of the oven, complete with my patented Clumsy Crust™️ (a regular pie crust with trim assembled from scraps, because the edges came apart when I rolled it out)
collection update Show more
Well, some enterprising collector bought the copy I had my eye on, but eBay had it for $10 less with free shipping. (Basketball's deflated in this one only because it's been over half a decade; I expect it to inflate fine, but we'll see how it goes when I get the proper adapter for our bike pump.)
I do not expect to actually be able to play this anytime soon; this was clearly made with the ideal Kinect living room in mind (giant open penthouse loft, non-carpeted floor)
Running through Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories Show more
Every interstitial voiced cutscene so far involving the three heroes has them walking into an austere white hallway, either Sora or Donald asking "I wonder how many more of our collected experiences we've lost?", and Goofy responding with "Shucks, it's not worth worrying about!"
It then fades in to some version of this arrangement of onscreen elements, which makes it feel like a grim ritual is about to occur

This is absolutely a marketing move (I'm a Kickstarter backer and am voluntarily mutuals with this account), but an effective one in my case; I do like to imagine this account is run by the '90s alien rap duo it represents, who both agree wholeheartedly with the "FUCK YOUR BOSS" sentiment depicted here
Critique of a heinous ad found on Tumblr Show more
Just ran into this ad. It almost reads like it's part of a viral campaign for a work of media, but regardless of whether it is or isn't, it's designed to take advantage of the viewer's tendency to feel guilt, and/or to make them question whether they're developing hallucinations ("You could have stopped it"). The way capitalism is headed, I'm sure we'll see more ads like it in the future.
PC build update Show more
It's currently dualbooting Windows 10 (from the old Windows 7 key I have Sharpied on a DVD-R in an ancient disc binder of mine) alongside standard Ubuntu (I couldn't get Solus or Mint to output audio through HDMI).
(You'll have to trust me, I did as much cable management as I could before putting the optical drive and intake fan on).
Temperatures are more than acceptable; 30-40 idle, 60-70 under load. I'll be streaming and working creatively with this, no question.
