Bienvenue ! Vous vous rappelez les blogs ? A une époque, ce site en était un. Maintenant, c’est surtout une archive de mes multiples comptes Twitter.
The bayou is absolutely gorgeous and Saint-Denis is… fucking decadent. I think I’ll retire in one of those abandoned shacks and become a trapper, as soon as I can make arrows good enough to kill a gator.
It seems impossible to set both a light’s color and brightness in a single Google Assistant command, and that is annoying me a lot more than reason allows. (I don’t want to set up scenes for all possible combinations and then have to remember their names.)
There was an Italian The Name of the Rose miniseries last year and nobody told me??
It could be worse — it could be GTA V — but how am I supposed to enjoy my Wild West escapist fantasy when I despise the protagonist and most of his friends? Do I just abandon the camp and never talk to a human being again?
I dreamt of a self-portrait with my dog, Walter, in an art style & time period that matched his personality.
The absurdly talented artist Kai Carpenter (IG: kt.carpenter) made my dream a reality with this oil painting.
I now intend to do this with all my dogs until I die.
Before posting that tweet I went to the game’s help screen to check if I could indeed block or dodge during melee combat, then I had to google it anyway because oh my fucking god how dare you call this a help screen.
I was supposed to meet the reverend at the station and bring him back; I failed at every checkpoint. Once I walked in the wrong direction. Twice because I’ve only been taught to punch yet, not block. Once I thought I’d get my horse but the mission wanted me to run. Once a QTE.
I must have mixed up the discourse about Red Dead Redemption 2 with another game, because I foolishly expected the mission design to have gotten better than this.
I went to Habitat yesterday and got a Siri suggestion on my lock screen for a note that lists a bunch of stuff I want to buy from Ikea, with one mention of Habitat. Creepy, but well done.
Just now my iPhone suggested the same note again because it’s been exactly 24 hours 🤪
Frozen 2 (2019) —
Maybe I’m just a philistine who can only enjoy a story that adheres to the Hero’s Journey, but I liked this a lot more than I ever did the first one. It doesn’t hurt that it feels and sounds like a straight-up Broadway adaptation instead of a Disney movie.
