    i've missed you, my friends!

    i like talking with you and, there's nothing that's stopped me from coming here, except my own weirdness and a drastically-changed schedule! y'all really helped me keep my sanity in the first part of this year; without y'all to talk to, i might have had a even rougher time at a job that just wasn't really doing it for me. life is stressful and a mess and i've devoted a lot of my time to trying to do the work i'm getting paid temporarily to do; i've also spent a lot more time with nearby friends, since i've had the energy and flexibility to accept more invitations. i almost went to france, but then i didn't... and a bunch of other stuff happened that has been kinda wild, but all is more or less well now. but i wanted to tell you that i have missed all of you and i'm sorry i've neglected you! i'm gonna catch up on everybody's posts, but: how has the last month been for you?

    i'm playing earthbound for the first time!!

    hey everybody! it was the anniversary of earthbound yesterday, so i started playing it again. 23 years, fucken ELL i feel like i'm gonna have some more things to say about this, but not quite yet. i'm just putting a little bookmark here. i'd also love to hear an anecdote about a particular time you were playing this game. i think it has an unusual capacity to resonate with other things happening in real life, because it was made with real human kindness and not just a fantasy lore escapist power fantasy! the thing that gets me as I begin it again is that, i want to talk to everybody, and read every single scrap of text. i've played so many games in the last few years that i just don't give one solid fuck about what anybody says in the whole game! and earthbound achieves this, even in translation, mostly by being a strange collage of things that don't ever try to make perfect sense... but this requires that each individual piece contain some meaning or inflection that makes it worth paying attention. the world emerges in details. compare that to final fantasy 12, which i've been trying to play and fuck me dictionarily, but i don't care about ANYTHING that is happening about ten hours into this fucking game! they say the names of COUNTRIES more than the names of PEOPLE and i just blur it all out... and the game kinda plays itself, so... i'm like what am i even here for??? i played about halfway into this game ten years ago and remember kinda liking it??? but lord, i don't know if it's worth it. ANYWAY earthbound is weird to play now, because i've played it so many times, and i'm 23 years older than the first time, and i don't have the guide with me, but i also don't need the guide... so it's like taking a walk through memories, fighting as necessary but just trying to read every single bit of text in the game, live inside the music, and remember my own life alongside it... earthbound is my mind palace

    i've had a very different schedule and routine the last couple weeks as i've tried to adapt to working from home again. sorry i haven't been around here as much, but i will be! one thing i did was start a little mailing list where i could just collect longer thoughts and little jokes instead of tweeting as much. i'm focusing on keeping it pretty positive and constructive to the extent possible. if y'all want to get my periodical blog / project notes / whatever else, you can subscribe! https://tinyletter.com/splendorr

    all over the place! slowly dealing with some paperwork related to getting my "small business" shit together, and ramping up on a couple of projects. but i slept a lot, and started having dreams again (i think maybe i hadn't had a full REM cycle in a few months) so that's good! i spent a lot more time alone and in a kind of restful contemplation. like most weeks, there's 20–40% of it that i simply endured and may never be able to speak about in any coherent way. soooo kind of a mess but also a relief and hopefully it's gonna work out? today i feel kind of doomed before the magnitude of life's unferning complexity but i reckon i'll keep going anyway. was work better for you this week, @Tracey? what's on the books for the weekend? hey everybody: what's good this weekend?

    OH YEAH the other show i've been watching is LEGION and i'm about 2/3rds through the first season (segion)! i can't tell yet if it rules completely or just largely rules & dazzles me with a bunch of weird stuff, but man i love weird stuff and interesting composition and all that, and it's been pretty neat!
