Watched someone implode their career in spectacular fashion today. Never been there before. I've watched people throw up their arms in frustration and walk out of a place before, but this was OTT crazy nuts. It's an odd feeling to go through a workday, wondering if/when someone might be coming back armed. Like, fer…
I keep clicking out of the nag screen that's been popping up on the newly-designed sites, the one that asks you to confirm a screen name. I'm a little paranoid to click the button and commit as I think I want to give myself a new name and everything but haven't settled on wtf that will be yet. Does anyone know if we…
New Republic says the MoMA exhibit is a mistake, that games aren't art, "because they are, quite thoroughly, something else: code."
I really dislike the commenting system on here. Seems like no matter when/how/what I post, no matter how many replies a post gets, it almost invariably ends up at the very bottom of the stack of comments. I noticed this is something that happens to a few other commenters around here as well.
Finally rented/watched Wreck-It Ralph last night. That was a very enjoyable movie. I imagine some of its design decisions like the purposefully janky animation on some of the characters might turn a few people off to its style or leave them confounded as to the purpose, but I found it both hilarious and endearing.
Track of the week. A new favorite.
If this guy in this office doesn't put his constantly-ringing cellphone on mute I am going to throw the damn thing at the wall.
Advertorials are the worst.
Think I'm getting ready to take a day off. Today. Right now. I'm on the verge of breaking. Need to get away from here. I've been hoarding my PTO for the summer, but......forget it. I need a day. I need a day right now.
One of my many daily tasks is to manage our support desk online.
For a drive on a cold winter's day.
"Need help paying down your student debts? Choose from one of three equally terrible options, none of which will actually help you accomplish anything. Do you like accrued interest so much that you want even more? We have some great news for you!"
Finally played a game for a meaningful amount of time, really for the first time in over four weeks. It's been....difficult to play anything after getting home from work. Find myself needing an extreme amount of time for rest and recovery after the daily grind (feeling more like an actual grind with every passing day)…
Saw this posted on my FB feed this morning. Interesting. Looks to be a glue-gun in principle, but the execution is novel. I think I would buy one of these and "doodle" endlessly with it. What about you?
I enjoy this producer's work and think his style is relatively fresh and unique in this particular branch of electronic music. Should totally listen to this if it's your thing. It finished uploading moments ago so if the thumbnail is weird and there's no HD option, it's still processing.
Also, when people hear what my birthday is, they're usually all like, 'oooh, so you're a Valentine's baby?! That must be so special!'
