It’s 2021 and I just bought a TiVo
please stop naming moons
Soon all these Cooper Light/Souvenir/Recoleta/Clearface/Windsor fonts are going to go WAY out of style, and quickly, don’t get caught flat-footed on this
Why does everybody use any excuse to say “kraken” these days? When did this kraken obsession start
In general I’m a Spatial Audio optimist, but wow does Sgt Pepper sound bad in it
If you search Lycos for “lycos,” you get an error page.
If you search Lycos for “google,” it says “There were no results for your search query. Maybe you accidentally invented a new word?”
Searching Lycos for “bing” works fine.
I think this makes two #DrunkGruber @ditheringfm episodes in a row
Everybody knows “web 2.0 badges” were a thing, but now for the life of me I can’t remember where I actually saw them
Is this a podcast or is it just somebody slowly reading an article over a trip hop record
MATTY IN THE MORNING, MATTY IN THE EVENING, MATTY AT SUPPERTIME
How can @SubstackInc URLs be 459 characters long
The vocal hook from “Immigrant Song” is just the “Get Smart” theme
There’ve been a lot of short-lived sitcoms, I know, but I don’t think I’ve seen a single reference to “Double Rush” since watching it in the mid-90s. It’s like I dreamed it.
I’m a high-res/lossless skeptic; but is it possible that despite failing all ABX tests we somehow *unconsciously* experience high-res music differently?
The worst homework you ever did was the homework between The Simpsons and going to sleep
Sorry, watching Howard The Duck at 3 am is decidedly NOT “wasting your life”
The handlebar-mustache-on-a-stick industry was really hurting in 2008, till some genius created wedding photo booths
It’s crazy that this deep into the 21st century there isn’t a train that can take me from Boston to Philly in 2 hours, or to New York in an hour.
I remember when “trigger warnings” were just called “discretion advised” and nobody thought it was the fall of Western civilization
I got the latest “flagship” Mario game, Mario Odyssey. It’s a 3D game, which I don’t like as much as the 2D Mario games. (What convinced me to get a Wii back in the day is that they had made a whole new 2D Mario game for it.) I thought it might have just been nostalgia, but they play so differently. 3D Mario games are about exploration and collecting things — you can just wander aimlessly around without being in danger in many places. But 2D Mario is about precision, timing, and speed. It’s such a vastly different play style that it almost feels wrong to call these new games Mario games.
