I watched the YouTube video and... Somewhere in between? It looks like it's just... Another remake, somehow?

Based on his prior coverage (include recent articles) on his love for the series, I imagine this was intentional

I was briefly obsessed with this for a period last year; then I went through the trouble of unearthing my old gameboy games, my SP and my DS, and realized that I only had like 5 minutes of attention left to give to each of these very old and very simple games. So while this hardware looks truly impressive, it’s Read more

This idea looks way better than executed than the others. FF 7, 8, and 9 may as well be downgrades

It’s not a trend. We generally reads political morality into almost any story we read, but it only stands out if there’s some dissociation—if you don’t identify with the baseline values or ideas of the artwork. This is old hat academia stuff. Literary theory. Read more

Milkshake Duke is David Duke’s son, so named in the hope that he might be briefly adored before being forevermore despised

Yes yes yes. And I assume there’s decent overlap between people who want to collect a hundred cars and decorate them and people who want to dress up their avatar in stylish hoodies.

I feel like the less he understands something, the more arrogant he becomes. I’m down to hear him talk about cars, rocket companies, climate change; I think he's disqualified himself from talking about politics, rescue operations, public transit, public health/epedimiology, and so on.

I’m interested in seeing what comes out of these investigations into Robinhood, etc. But my first thought was that they were shutting down trading out of fear of the investigations, bad press, etc., that will come when the bubble eventually bursts.

I generally like my coworkers, which is good, because (pre-covid, at least) I’m around them a lot and talk to them a lot, and to some extent those interactions shape my continuing sense of identity and well being. Imagine if, 8 hours a day, all your conversation was randos on your Twitch chat saying stupid things to Read more
