i wrote an introduction a bit ago but forgot to post it behind a cw and then didn’t ever rewrite it, whoops!
anyway, hi, i’m renny, i’m painfully allergic to proper grammar (english is a colonial construct and i enjoy butchering it as often as possible), and i love video games and kitties. i’m 32, a divorced parent of 2 (12 year old elle and 6 year old vee), currently taking classes for a computer science degree, and sort of just trying to find my way.
i know what they say about starfish, about how we make a difference even if it feels like we aren’t leaving that significant of a mark, but holy fuck, it’s hard to not despair a little.
dnd came out with blm and pride support and then the one black non-binary person on their team was treated like absolute shit.
hot take: most "they made it on a shoestring budget and the art looks amazing" games took a ton of design work and the reason it's so cheap is usually because design is undervalued compared to raw graphics
design isn't an infinite free cheat resource and crunch is just as severe a problem for designers as asset artists
just kidding playing on my warlock again #destiny2
a reminder to everyone that on friday july 3 bandcamp is waiving its profit share so 100% of the money you spend will go to the artists
it's another good opportunity to give money to black musicians and labels, over 2,000 of whom are listed here: https://www.blackbandcamp.info/#/
maybe use the week to have a listen and see who you'd like to support on friday
might mess around and make tea and play some sims after i finish up with my homework.
[sobbing] i just want enough attention span to watch and love critical role
