Pinned toot


Hey folks, as I've struck out into the fediverse, it strikes me that I haven't redone

So, I'm Paul. The Cookie Brigade calls me Mom. I'm a java dev for my day job. In my spare time, I stream in the mornings at , I work on board game ideas, and I chase down whatever interests me at the time. Currently I'm trying to make a mead that resembles a chocolate chip cookie. We'll see how that goes.

Hades is pretty fun and interesting. I'm really interested in what's up with Demeter, what are other people thinking?


Also, can we talk about how the music from Diablo is the most forgettable fuckin soundtrack ever?

Things for when your bank calls you at 2 AM to verify that yes, you *DID* mean to order all of those Phantasy Star Online albums from Japan.

Anyways, here's this quote from Babylon 5 that helps explain it:

"When I sweep my floor, all I've done is sweep my floor. But when I help you clean up your place, I'm helping you."

Hey listen,

I know everything right now is pretty fuckin terrible. And it's easy to get into a negativity spiral because holy fucking shit *gestures at everything*. I don't always check things out, and I keep a pretty low profile, but if things are shitty, and I can help in some way, just, let me know, okay?

Preeeeeeeeeetty sure that I developed a stress fracture in my foot. Fuck me sideways.

Who can I talk with behind CWs about Aggretsuko Season 3 because HOOOOOLEEEEEESHIT

@magicalmilly This is further proof of your bias against self-absorbed assholes.

One of the most interesting things I thought they did in Grandia was have a character buckle from the stress of the adventure and drop out. That's the only game I can think of in which that occurs.

Doomguy, police violence 

Remember, Doomguy is good yo:

"After being ordered to fire upon unarmed civilians, the Marine in Doom (you) fatally punches their commanding officer and is transferred from Earth to Mars."

Imagine living in a country that values the lives of it's citizens over the stock portfolios of it's leaders.

I have been a gamer for 35 years when I learned the creator of the technology to use cartridges in consoles was a black guy who worked on a console called the Channel F. So that was neat.

My Grandia OST finally shipped! I'm so excited I've got goosebumps.

If they ever make a fighting game out of Kengan Ashura, Jun Sekibayashi must not be able to block, but would be the only character with the SFIII parry ability which would split the damage between the two fighters.

New hobby: demanding the birth certificate and social security number of every person demanding to see Kamala Harris' birth certificate.

Happy birthday to me,
I've just turned 40.
The world is a garbage fire,
I don't have anything funny to say here.

So it looks like Google is killing Google Music, which is absurd because I didn't want to use it in the first place but couldn't figure out how to sync my music to my phone without it.

I really don't want to use YouTube Music because I'm not interested in the integration stuff. Does anyone know a way to just... Get music on my phone and play it with a music player?


I submitted a commentary to the Star Trib today. And I'm gonna repost it here because there's no chance in hell it'll see the light of day.

Beating a pandemic is easy, but the people of MN (and the US) are too weak and selfish to do it.

A pandemic is a force of nature, and like other forces of nature, it can be mitigated in order to reduce the time it affects our populace.
