Speed Racer (2008) 

Saw this movie for the first time in years last night and it still whips, not just as a direct retread of the anime's story beats, or as a sequence of dazzling visual setpieces that lean into the fake, but also thematically (both in the conflict with the villain and within the family). I was amazed at the scene where Pops recognized his mistake and told Speed he'd always be welcome at home, and I wonder if the Wachowskis meant for a trans parallel to be implied there

thinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later"

Twice in the last week my laptop has suddenly started rapidly spinning up its CPU fan after I pick it up and move it; the only thing that stops it is a hard reboot. Less than ideal, IMO 🔸

oh boo hoo let me write down your story in the world's smallest Microsoft OneNote Notebook

It reminds me of the Bethesdaland E3 presentation. Imagine a theme park where most of the rides could be represented by a weapons-ready photorealistic humanoid in the chin-down/eyes-up angry pose, aside from one, and it's Fallout Shelter 🔸

I got that island game everybody is playing. Myst or whatever. I can't find my tent

I've been enjoying watching Phen play Doom Eternal so far; the game's a comedy, but the most ridiculous moment to me by far was when he fired up the Bethesda launcher to be greeted by this collage of marketing images clearly focus-tested to sell M-rated games to adults 🔸

I can see myself having fun making patterns, but I'll have to test out how effective it'd be to make pixel art on PC and run it through a QR code generator before I commit to making anything for this🔸

Named my island after a Rippingtons track at the last minute and it grew on me quickly. Enjoying the gently communal nature of this setting 🔸

As long as we have the opportunity to change things for the better, why not try

Switch-owner pals, add me and maybe we can cross an animal sometime 🔸

I finished a big project yesterday! Now in a bid to teach myself how to relax without this obligation weighing me down, for the first time in weeks I will actually fire up Final Fantasy XIV🔸

Easing into spring with a belated birthday gift from @seriousink! Just a forest-doggo vibing in the park, not a cellphone in sight. Absolutely beautiful~

fursuit mention, claustrophobia 

me, wearing half a fursuit, stuck in a broken hotel elevator with ten other convention attendees: hey, how are you doing over there?

my partner, tucked away in the corner, visibly not-okay: I'm okay.
