Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.

Mon dieu ce que Westworld s’écoute parler cette année.

En même temps, faut bien, vu comment tout le monde murmure.

Westworld 2x02 — 6/10


Beat Saber Original Soundtrack by @Sqeepo is out! ✨

🔉 Listen now: [fanlink.to]

*Only few hours left until Beat Saber release on Steam & Oculus Store! #StayTuned


This is amazing: in an online community, simply telling misbehaving members that their account may have been compromised, asking for a password change made them stop the behavior — giving them the opportunity to save face instead of openly berating them [acawiki.org]

I’m a bit disappointed that Beat Saber fails out of a song if you miss too many beats—I thought everyone agreed that was bad.

Also disappointed that it doesn’t come with the green-screen studio they used in their mixed-reality videos.

I managed to knock the wireless connection out of one Touch controller 😅 (Removing and reinstalling the battery fixed it.)

My Rift’s foam interface has never been so disgusting with sweat. Beat Saber is just as good as it looked 💜

This visual atrocity has been in my news feed for days and my brain only just parsed it 🤢

“That line never gets a laugh, but once you write it it stays in the act forever.”


The universe is an egg and the moon isn’t real: notes from a Flat Earth conference [trib.al]

I figured I’d play Beat Saber for just a little while to put myself in a good mood and start working. I emerged three and a half hours later, hungry and with sore arms.

Worth noting the tracks are about 2:30 long and there are only four or five I actually like.


When The Handmaid’s Tale becomes reality in the US, it’ll thanks to men like this who use a massive platform to normalize misogynist terrorism less than 2wks after a man killed 10 people - 8 of them women - because he believes he is entitled to women’s bodies.

I didn’t realize the software solution used to make those videos was free

So now I’m looking for a way to get rid of most of the furniture in my bedroom and set up a green screen studio. Liv supports Beat Saber and Tilt Brush, what else could you need.

Archer 9x02 — 6/10

I’m gonna need to build or buy dedicated handles for the Oculus Touch so I can get into the Beat Saber zone without accidentally triggering the Oculus overlay every other song.

Les parcs sont plein de gens et de pollens et tousse je ne peux quand même pas m’empêcher de me retrouver au lac Daumesnil dès qu’il fait beau tousse tousse 😠

Sink or swim: d’ici octobre soit j’aurai lancé une toute nouvelle version avec plein de fonctionnalités inédites, soit je résilierai le serveur.

Your fear of looking stupid is holding you back.

Ugh évidemment les replays de Burger Quiz sont sur le site de TF1 où il faut s’identifier pour avoir le privilège de voir leurs pubs 🙄🤷🏻‍♂️

How awesome is it that I get to disappear into Beat Saber for several hours at a time without ever feeling guilty because it’s my workout.


Dad ranted about how LGBTQIA+ identities were getting too confusing to keep up with, my 88 year old grandma shut him down. “The way things are now is better than when people had to hide away or killed themselves because nobody understood who they were. Respect costs you nothing.”

I don’t have the room here but I’d love to mod my Touch controllers so they get not only a proper lightsaber hilt but also a physical blade to prevent them from intersecting in-game.

And maybe — I’m just spitballing here — make the blade searing hot, too.

Android will also create “wind down mode,” where the phone goes greyscale and into do not disturb mode before bedtime. Google exec admits on stage that color screen is “far more stimulating for the brain.”

I can’t imagine what miracle would ever allow me to progress from hard to expert difficulty in Beat Saber.

9 May

I wish the Apple Watch could detect, and warn me, that I’ve taken it off and put it down but didn’t correctly set it on the charger.

The street is completely blocked by an 18-wheeler desperately trying to maneuver into a gate and I feel better about my performance in ETS2


Le sport c’est un milieu privilégié ! On veut lutter contre les injustices profondes, pas juste effleurer la surface.

Combien de temps avant de me faire arrêter si je me balade comme ça pour éviter les allergènes ?


Today I’m writing the chapter titled “Permission to Fuck it Up.” It starts – “Fuck it up. Fuck it up. Fuck it up.” I felt so much catharsis scrawling those words wildly into my Moleskine. 37k+ words and counting.


Permission to fuck it up.

Permission to fuck it up.

Permission to fuck it up.

Permission to fuck it up.

Permission to fuck it up.

Permission to fuck it up.

Permission to fuck it up.

Permission to fuck it up.

Permission to fuck it up.

Permission to fuck it up.

Vous imaginez, avoir des chats et un gros ventilateur Dyson, et ne pas aménager votre appartement de façon à ce que les premiers sautent régulièrement à travers le second ?

You have been asking about our scoring system a lot. Here you go! 💪

I figured Beat Saber’s scoring system was optimized for maximum workout, but not to that point — didn’t expect to have to complete a 150° arc to get the maximum score on each cube 😳

Me: I know, but your product hurts me when I try to use it.

Dev: But everyone else who’s tried it can use it just fine.

Dear Europe,

Please vote for the UK in #Eurovision tonight. If 🇬🇧 wins, it will have to host Eurovision in 2019 and showcase a celebration of European integration and unity after leaving the EU.

Europe. Do your duty. This your chance to troll the Brexiters.


13 May


So far everyone I’ve put in @BeatSaber has had the same reaction… it’s not ‘wow this is immersive’ or ‘I totally see how VR could change the world’… it’s just ‘omg this is fun can I go again?’ Which is actually a really different kind of reaction than most VR content instills

An element of Beat Saber’s success that should be paid attention to by other VRdevs is the way that one (can play it in a way that) looks COOL playing it.

Much as many pancake games are built entirely around the Streamer economy, MR + looking sweet/powerful is a big opportunity.

J’ai fait un chèque pour mes cotisations sociales, je ne me rappelle plus le montant et il n’apparaît pas en ligne dans mes opérations à venir parce que c’est un putain de chèque.

Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife — 8/10

Didn’t think I’d ever reach 10,000 again. And again I lost because of a mis-swipe 😡


C’est la première fois sous le mandat Macron que des contrôles en amont d’une manifestation sont organisés. Ma pièce d’identité a été photographiée à République pour « fichage » selon la BAC présente, afin de « vérifier les diffusions des images après manifestation ».


Ce contrôle et cette menace de fichage ont été légitimés par une seule chose seulement, par le policier en civil : « nous, on veut pas voir nos visages sur les vidéos et les photos, donc on vérifiera les images qui seront diffusées ».

Watching Elon Musk seamlessly moving from “the free market solves everything” to “trade unions sow social division among classes” and “we need a watchdog to discredit lying journalists” is like watching capitalism decay into fascism in real time on twitter.

It isn’t easy for a man to rip a screaming child away from his mother. Most of us couldn’t do it. This is where “animals” comes in. Declare he isn’t really a child, she isn’t a woman. Now it’s like pulling a piglet from a sow. This has always been how states enable savagery.

I’d like a Beat Saber mod that says fuck the music and gives me the full-on whirly-zoomy slice-and-dice lightsaber sound effects I crave. Just for a little while, at least.
