Looks like my immediate peer group's undergoing a period of upheaval. This is to be expected with expansion and time, but being aware of this doesn't seem to dampen the impact any less.

Doesn't really look the way I thought it would five years ago. Sure the scale and profile of the project has increased, but it's almost like something was lost in translation there.

I still don't know what it is.

Wound up getting a sweet deal on a Mooer Mod Factory MkII. It's a decent all-in-one solution, but a bit finicky if you jump right in.

The chorus, flange, and phase settings aren't the best, but are salvageable. I liked the vibrato and tremolo settings the most.

I find that for most modulation types (except for the two tremolo settings), you'd likely get the best results by cranking the depth, and sweeping the speed knob back up from zero.

Tl;dr - Can sound good, not great. Super handy.

I've been self-sabotaging myself since like, 2016. Kind of a tough habit to break, but I'm trying to be a bit more purposive about this whole push towards proper function.

Some proof of life for you. Hanging out at UP Diliman for a while before I go to the Teething (ES) show at Mow's. The weather's fairly nice today, and I do appreciate being able to wear a jacket without the usual discomfort.

Anyway, I'm running out of quiet/still places in Metro Manila. It's doubly hard being here since I just botched my graduate school application a while back. I honestly wish I didn't have to tie up with an institution to do academic research.

Lol everything hurts.

ideal counseling session:
- counselor tells me I'm cool and smart and nothing about me needs to change
- video games
- bowl of candy
- i am not asked to think about anything unhappy
- counselor pays me at the end

Might not make it to grad school this year. Had everything submitted on time, except for this one requirement I had to physically claim from a place I haven't lived in/been to in almost a decade.

It's just super shitty when it's not my fault, and there's actual institutional incompetence (and a lack of concern for alumni) at play. Had to stay there for two weeks out of desperation, and it looks like it was for nothing.

Has anyone played NaissanceE yet? I'm looking for moody/thematically challenging stuff. My favorite game in recent memory would have to be SOMA, and I'm also super interested in trying games like Observer, Observation, and maybe the first Dead Space game. Currently finishing a Fallout marathon (3, NV, 4), then it's Nier: Automata next.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhaüser Gate.

All of those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die."

Looks like I'm scrounging around the wasteland for supplies again.

I want to make a game that's part Sims 4 and part Dark Souls. But like, also a survival game. And in VR. And in-game food is either stolen/gifted from other players, or purchased as a microtransaction.

In-game credits can be earned by rendering in-game service, with the choice to either be employed by or employ other players.

For the cost of in-game credits, you could also purchase player upgrades that affect the number of credits you earn or the likelihood of being chosen over other players.

only 90s kids remember when recaptcha was helping project gutenberg transcribe old books instead of feeding the google machine learning beast so they can make cars

My cat is cool as hell, and I just wanted to show you. Say hi to Meatball! :3

I passed on going to this year's pride march (the largest in our country yet) because I had to stay for my dad's medical treatments.

On the night of the march, he starts mouthing off about how gay people have no right to marry, and that the right to form corporations with each other for property rights is enough.

My father doesn't know I'm non-binary/queer.

My mother knows, but didn't bother to defend me when I was clearly distressed.

But hey, they're happy I'm home for once. Great.

Here I am, shifting in bed, thinking of wind and rain; Googling "world's rainiest cuties" by accident.

Now, I'm half asleep; thinking of wind. And rain. And you.

I still like the fediverse better than any of the other online spaces I'm in.

Holy fuck, they really did it! Discordance Axis 2.0 is really up and running. Tryna not cry this early, shit.
