Pinned toot

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!

I'd like to do a second weekly creative stream (featuring a different project altogether) timed for American audiences; Sunday evening seems like a safe bet, though it might not happen this week 🔸

Creative stream is over and was successful (I started the process of box-modeling a kobold in Blender), which means I'll probably be continuing this project at the same time next week! Thanks again to everyone who showed up!🔸

Live in ~15 minutes for a creative stream of some sort: 🔸

Pokémon SM110: Keeping Your Eyes on the Ball! 

Before I put this icon into retirement, here it is in full -- if you want one in this style, don't hesitate to commission my longtime friend @demoweasel (who does these routinely)

@Lobst "Moments from My Adjustment to a Flesh Brain Inside a Turtle Body"

No regrets, of course; that self-representation was a necessary personal step for me to get to the point where I CAN feel this comfortable with who I am. And I consider myself lucky to be able to say "this escape fantasy served its purpose, and now I'm done with it"🔸

I've been thinking of shelving the robosona for a while. My tortoise is a better representation of my IRL body shape, and in recent years I've gotten more comfortable with that aspect of myself than I was when I developed the android model. Medical transition works, folks 🔸

So I think I'll give it a shot and see how it fits! My Picarto account is at -- next stream will be something creative, at 10AM Pacific this Friday 🔸

Learning that Picarto has a Game Mode has me thinking it might be preferable to using Mixer, since I'd ideally like to stream more creative than gaming -and- I want to reduce the likelihood of random people crashing my streams/asking invasive questions 🔸

If truckin and fuckin be what ye crave

Ascend to the mountain and enter my cave

Starting in ~15 minutes, a few hours more of NieR Automata: 🔸

Naoya Matsuoka (1937-2014) is the outrun jazz fusion you've been looking for:

according to an incredibly comprehensive Outrun/Sega AM2 blog Matsuoka's oeuvre literally inspired Outrun's music:
(seriously, click around this blog, a decade+ of fantastic research awaits)

got there via the blogger commenting on this also-interesting Eurogamer article about artifacts discovered while moving Sega's longtime HQ:

Queer folks identifying with villains: hell yeah

Straight people identifying with villains: [immediate mistrust]

The info on how to do this was miraculously retrieved through several unsuccessful websearches from a variety of engines, most of which led to either bad advice ("spray WD-40 on it") or shopping results ("best way to quiet creaking bed frame" = "best bed frame", obviously) 🔸
