Oof. David Bowie's "Blackstar" comes up on a Spotify station and my eyes instantly started stinging
After tinkering with some BBS DOS door games and then tinkering with some "helper" programs for semi-automated play (i.e. cheating), now I've got a notion to write an idle game that's mostly just colored text and ANSI graphics scrolling by
Man, I am just so, like, angry at this song "Shield for Your Eyes, A Beast in the Well on Your Hand" by Melt-Banana but I keep playing it over and over https://open.spotify.com/track/5jxKCf7EPQCoiMgD5Fzjlq?si=F_oD1qiyTlyAimw4cDdvXQ
Tried moving all my images to S3, which seemed to have worked. But now I can't upload media. Maybe I broke my tooter
My asteroids can bounce now. Still issues with overlapping on spawn, but at least they don't stick together #rustlang #gamedev https://github.com/lmorchard/rust-invaders/commit/c4030dca65c8b69fc76953cbf1d793a4e9742da2 https://toot.lmorchard.com/media/4KZ1nYTTbt8Y8DAPFNI

Playing Blaster Master Zero on Switch and I suddenly remember that I was about as obsessed with this game on NES as I was with Metroid. Also have the distinct memory of pizza, because that was video store & pizza night.
2am and Tank Girl comes on. Damn it
internet of bongs.
Oh hey, I made some things move on the screen with Rust + ggez + specs
Re that last boost: Mastodon is hard to get into without a guide and some focused usage.
The things that make it less toxic also make it harder to discover people to follow.
Without people, you just kind of feel like you're tooting into the void. It makes Mastodon a lonely place that you're less likely to return to. I mean, this is why Twitter and Facebook put so much energy into recommendations.
