You've gotta post "cringe". It's necessary. Holding it back, if you have genuine feelings to express, is an exercise in self-deprivation. It weakens the soul 🔸

FUCK me, i set a trans avatar on discord today and also have steamvr running

If people want an open network, stop shit-talking open things 

I hear tech folks saying that RSS is dead, and people on social media saying that blogs are dead.

The problem with this is twofold:

- RSS is doing just fine, and not even remotely dead

- Blogs are doing just fine, and are not even remotely dead, either

There's this strange sort of defeatism around. "Well, we lost, so what can you do". Um, not undermine things that still work and are actively being used? Support them as well?

Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) 

My main worry going into the film was, as a road trip movie, it would be interchangeable with an identical film about a different cartoon character (say, Awesome Possum) entering the real world. It wasn't that! Most of the scenes actually depend on the CGI creature being Sonic, wow!

Aside from that, the film's a piece of advertising-driven copaganda, but at least an entertaining one. 10-year-old me would have been on the edge of my fucking seat

tired: buying a Poké Ball Plus just to get Mew into Pokémon Home

wired: waiting in line for four hours at a Toys "R" Us promotional event in 2006 celebrating the release of Pokémon Lucario & The Mystery of Mew just to get Mew into FireRed, using a Nintendo DS to transfer it to Pokémon Diamond, waiting eight years, using the free starter month of Pokémon Bank for 3DS to transfer it to X, waiting six more years, and using another free promo month of Bank to transfer it to Pokémon Home

Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone 

The Funimation dub took the Gohan-gets-drunk/high-on-special-fruit sequence, replaced the score with an instrumental version, and dubbed it with the characters as though those scenes were always meant to have dialogue; a solid minute and a half of Gohan's voice actor laughing uncontrollably. Whew, I was worried I might briefly feel like this was an anime for kids

Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku 

It is also wild to me that they took the "Goku was sent as an infant to Earth to conquer it" angle and doubled-down on it. They could have easily retconned it into "Bardock found out about Frieza's plan and sent Goku to a distant backwater planet to protect him" but no, some offscreen workers blast this baby into space as part of their usual workday. The most ridiculous plan, leaned into as hard as possible, and I am very glad the show creators did this

Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - the Father of Goku 

This is my first time since my Toonami days that I've seen a version of the show where the music was subbed out from the usual fare (mostly nu-metal and pop-punk), and it ended up being an even bigger turn-off for me than I'd have otherwise expected. Definitely leans more into the "musclebound dudes wrecking each other" angle than the "hey, we're on a whimsical martial-arts-adjacent adventure!" fare I'm used to hearing from this franchise

Pokémania Catch-'em-all Thread (Moving this topic to an alt account!) 

I ultimately decided to make a whole new fediverse account JUST for talking about Pokémon, complete with a new OC/gimmick! Art of the trainersona and their team will come shortly, and I might boost the occasional post from it on this account if I'm super proud of it: @lobst

FFXIV progress: I tried to level every job through the hunting checklists before I found out there's an XP bonus after you get a single job to 50 -- so I'm beelining to that goal by maining a support class, which has (so far) allowed me to skip queues left and right🔸

NGL, a major reason I'm hoping the PS5 will somehow have full backward compatibility with my entire existing digital PS3 library is to financially justify getting a device that also runs PS4 software just so I can play through Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise 🔸
