thinking about all those videos i watched comparing 30fps to 60fps and not noticing any difference. it might just be a consequence of watching these vids on a tiny netbook screen but i still feel bad cuz framerates is a pretty big deal for videogames.

HFE, Stop Buying Books Challenge

I told myself to stop buying books until I finished at least one of the books I’m currently reading…

This post is a testament to how I majestically failed.

So let’s do a 📚 book 📚 haul 📚 for April 2023!

I’ve never done one of these before, so even I’m wondering what I’ll come up with~. And I’m the one who bought the books 😅.

Watching Sonic Prime

watching Sonic Prime (netflix). the character designs look like the characters! (the fact that there’s not just one, but two relevant jimquisition episodes related to sonic design specifically is both unsurprising and shocking. i feel like it really shouldn’t be that hard to make sonic and company look like themselves…)

Pokémon Violet Experiences

Last year, the middle child bought Pokémon Violet and Scarlet for us. I played Violet, he played Scarlet. I enjoyed teaming up with him to complete our Pokédexes (the in-game encyclopedia if you’re one of the five people on Earth who haven’t played a main series Pokémon game). I also had fun blowing my in-game money on the (limited) clothing options, beating and becoming the champion of yet another region, and hatching tons of Pawmi eggs.

Highlighting The Pocket Pema Chödrön: Edited by Eden Steinberg

“Virginity is a mistake and a waste, and a courtesan is of more value to mankind than a nun.”

Antonio Beccadelli.

HFE: Well, here’s Pema Chödrön to officially say “Fuck you, Antonio. Clearly, they didn’t have quality nuns like me back in your day.”

Shadow of Chaos: Isn’t this book already a collection of highlights?

HFE: Yes. But we’re highlighting it anyway! There’s a lot of paragraphs in this book. Internetizens prefer 1-3 sentence soundbites.

Shadow of Chaos, judgy. Shadow no longer wonders why everyone’s as bratty as Faenor: I see.

HFE: I challenged myself to grab a quote from each lesson.

Shadow of Chaos: And how did that go?

HFE: Read on and find out! Instead of page numbers, I listed “chapter” numbers instead.

Shadow of Chaos picks up the list. Daer eyes lock on to the highlights: Noted.
