Introductions (selfie; eye contact) 

Lol anyway, thank you for reading my Ted Talk; follow if you want more incredibly cringe-y, late night introspection, though I don't actually play videogames anymore so don't expect me to post much about those. 😅

Oh I also make and build fancy things in JavaScript for newsmedia in London, UK; my background's in journalism but I pretty much exclusively write code instead of prose. I promise I won't post anything media- or politics-related here, though; that's what birbsite's for (though I might boost some stuff in that vein on occasion 💚).

I identify as nonbinary transfemme and use "they" pronouns. Please feel free to boost any of my stuff, I don't mind!

about to hit the big four-two-zero, folks -- let's make some noise in the back

I've posted this on my birbsite account but I'll reiterate it here — anyone who creates NFTs on the usual proof-of-work blockchains should know better by now, the environmental damage of ETH and BTC has been well-documented.

No longer doing Instagram links, they've broken Creator Studio for me, for some reason I can't post with it anymore. Had to rewrite this like four times. Truly the worst platform (that isn't Facebook itself).

I adjusted the background to be a bit darker than normal process in order to promote more detail, it's otherwise a 180º hue shift.

...Though, I have to say:

Actually image-searching that character for the first time in decades makes me realise how much of my transfemme aesthetic is probably influenced by her. Like, I part my hair the exact same way.

Goddammit lol.

This rabbithole goes even deeper; like, I legit wrote fanfiction about the science-y inventor character in the game. I pray to god that's lost somewhere in the ether as a result of the death of Yahoo! Groups in 2019, rust in peace.

It was so incredibly bad, I think I remember some sort of proto-slimegirl scenario at one point. Not a lot of my writing from that stage of my life has survived and I like to think I'd look back on most of it favourably — but god no, please not my Yuina Himoo fanfiction. 🙈

A friend linked to this *SIX-HOUR* analysis of the Japanese SNES dating simulator Tokimeki Memorial earlier today, and folks?

I tried to help a group translate the ROM of that to English when I was in high-school, around two decades ago. Because I knew neither Japanese nor 6502 assembly language, I was... Not at all helpful.

Starting to play with saturation and hue shift a bit more...

I just changed my Soundcloud username to aendra, so to celebrate I've uploaded 2 minutes of on-hold music from my energy supplier

For the background I generally sample a dominant colour and find an inverse by flipping around the colour triangle in GIMP. It came out a particuarly eye-gouging green this time and I kinda love it as a compliment to Work 1626826780000.

I just don't really understand who is supposed to benefit from this rejection, or how this is good for people on iOS in any way? litchie.com/2021/07/idos2-will

Hi I just made this account today, I'll write a proper intro in a bit!
