The following is a list of points gleaned from this phone interview, if you're too busy to listen and just want to read. Or if you hate Flash players. This was posted on my tumblr first, since I KNOW a lot of my followers are fans.

An assorted set of pictures of my pets from varying times, though this particular batch has a lot from one singular day. It's going to be an ongoing series, since I have a folder literally labeled Miscellaneous Pet Photos.

Over the last few years, I've been having these weird places that I keep coming back to in my dreams. These are often based off of existing places but have running themes in my head. I had another one last night, and maybe talking about them will help me exorcise them from my head.

So recently, pretty much every review site under the sun gave Bayonetta 2 huge, amazing, glowing reviews (several 10/10s in there). According to every review I've read, the game controls like a dream, acts like a fever dream in both style and how ridiculous every scenario is, and performs near-flawlessly on a console that nearly everyone writes off horsepower-wise. It is apparently one of the best action games of this console generation.

And then there was Polygon, who gave it a 7.5 for being oversexualized. Twitter has already exploded.

tl;dr version of Porter Robinson’s Worlds: it is a fucking experience, and you are seriously missing out if you don’t go see it. ESPECIALLY if you’re a fan of his music (and yes…that includes his pre-Worlds stuff).

I have two computers.

One of them is an overpowered monster of a laptop that runs Minecraft at 120+ FPS and Skyrim at 60+.

Another is an ancient laptop that has far too much cruft on it, broken SD card and optical readers, a missing "a" key on its keyboard, and desperately needs to get a new Linux install because the damn thing is SLOW (dude, it has an ATI graphics card - remember when they existed?).

But even for all of the power my laptop has, there are limitations. These limitations are being a major block from producing.

After I saw the film last week (it was good, honestly), I couldn’t put my finger on the things I found wrong with it. I just had this forboding feeling of something…missing. After a week of contemplation, here’s what I came up with (warning, spoilers):

Isn’t this pretty? It’s a ring I bought from Silvershowroom on Etsy, who have displayed immense patience and caring…because I actually purchased this ring in early March but had to send it back repeatedly because I kept giving them sizes too big for my thumb!
