Pinned toot

Hey folks, I'm a 23 year old bisexual, polyamorous trans woman, and I'm trying to find a less terrible social media network.
I have an undergraduate degree in forensic investigation, will be doing a Masters in Computing next year, and have recently got into playing Magic: The Gathering

if anything, my view on human sacrifice has moved from "educationally interested" to "maybe they had the right idea" since people were showing their ass last night

gay sexuality and physical love is not a bad thing that needs to be justified or redeemed by romantic symbolism or emotional commitment, but it sure the hell isn't mutually exclusive with those things, and just because love is non-physical and cutely non-threatening doesn't mean it's substantial, healthy, or committed. Infantilizing gayness in its 'wholesome' forms is an assimilationist Pyrrhic victory, making some forms of gayness a commodifiable aesthetic and reinforcing the belief that real-life messy gays whose love is at all physical or complicated are too crude and sexual to be allowed in a society that has children in it

games consoles were standard def or below from the very beginning until the PS3/360 ushered in the "hd generation" with games running at up to 1080p

the next generation had to move from 1080p to 4K halfway through, and now the PS4 and xbox series X are promising 8K at launch, by which they almost certainly mean 8K media and 4K games

meanwhile movies are still being sold on DVD with its 576p/480p max res output, and 4K blu-rays often include a 1080p blu-ray copy in the case

there are so few 8K televisions that the wikipedia article on 8K currently lists all of them

who on earth is demanding 8K

2020 in review:

- more of the same
- they didn't even bother updating the textures
- i'm 4 hours into the game and so far nothing really happened
- kind of a ripoff

considering returning my copy and waiting for the next edition

bourgeois moralists:
you can't just... give stuff to people rather than withhold it from them. it's immoral

normal person:
so uh. I didn't study economics or philosophy or anything but this strikes me as the exact sort of thing that is just... inherently good?

bourgeois moralists:
yeah maybe but it would also be socialism, and we therefore cannot admit it's good

Corvid calls don't sound harsh, they just don't cater to your delicate, lily-white sensibilities. Yes, they kind of sound like a rusty slinky being tossed with full force down a very long flight of stairs, it's called noise music, educate yourself.

Tried opening the car door and I was absolutely swarmed with fireflies, an obscene, unspeakable cloud of them. Not what I signed up for. I'm getting back in the car.

literally just read a youtube comment complaining about “there’s only 1 slowed version of this song on youtube and it has no reverb”
