  2. This image is too good to be part of a mega post.
  3. I made quite the discovery today. In the early 2010s, I bought a lot of indie video game bundles from a variety of sites. A number of them no longer exist (Indie Royale), have been sold to a much larger company (Humble Bundle) or have mutated into storefronts (Fanatical, who used to be *mumble*). One oddball from that era was Groupees. Strange name, even stranger site. They sold product keys for Steam, Desura and ShinyLoot (the latter two no longer exist.) They often included comic books in PDF format and lots of music in their bundles. As part of the massive data migration I've been working on for a year now, I went through some ancient bundle detritus. Among the files was a bunch of stuff from Groupees. Out of curiosity, I checked their site out. They're still very much active, primarily selling indie music now including a bunch of synthwave(!) I was surprised to see that they didn't have no-name artists either. For example: https://groupees.com/occamslaser Occams Laser is the \m/ of synthwave. There is nothing chill about the music he makes. It's like the soundtrack to an action/horror movie from a much cooler version of the 1980s that never existed. I own a bunch of his EPs and I'm still buying that bundle because there's a couple on there I don't have in FLAC.
  4. So funny thing. I'm not trying to turn this mostly dead thread into Knuckles' Tales of Slow Death By Indigestion, buuut.... After my bad experience with the "biohazard" powder, I bought 3 new varieties. Two organic ones (expensive, from Walmart of all places) and one reasonably priced kind (Aldi's in-house "Millville" brand, marketed toward weight lifting meatheads): To say this stuff didn't agree with me would be an understatement on par with "Donald Trump is not up to the job." I consumed a decent amount last Thursday. I was still feeling ill on Monday. The nausea, fatigue and headaches I was experiencing kept returning every day. I should interject at this point that there's something wrong with me not related to a food allergy ("we've know this for years, Knucks.") Yesterday, due to the heat, I almost lost consciousness while standing in my upstairs bathroom. I then had to take a non-optional nap in the middle of the day where I had a hellacious fever dream where an infamous YouTuber named Keemstar (someone I never voluntarily watch) was doing a very loud dance that was making me sick. I was begging him to stop and a guy I haven't seen since high school nearly 30 years ago was insisting to me that "it wasn't that bad." I eventually forced myself awake from this nightmare. I felt kind of weird the rest of the day. I haven't exactly felt okay today, but I've been comparatively much better. So... smoothies. I have, uh, 15 lbs of ice cubes that I bought because of that 28 hour power outage I had recently.. I'm determined to use as much of it as possible for smoothies. I also have (as previously mentioned) a shit-ton of bananas, that don't keep for shit in this weather. Two bananas, a bit of milk, a bunch of ice and some "Earthly Choice Great Day Goji Cacao Superfood Blend" powder. I didn't pick the name. Full of nut and twigs (or so it tasted). Actually quite good. y. As above, but with "Better Body Foods Organic Cacao Powder." Also very good. Chocolatey and rich. A little bit of this powder goes a long way. As a bonus, neither of the above put me on a 5 day bender of nausea or prompted me to nearly lose consciousness. So I've got that going for me.
  5. NME acid house issue cover, July 1988. This is real. The fossil of a Kronosaurus. I feel personally attacked here. In the words of the late, great Bill Hicks, there's no fucking joke here. Schrodinger's Miau. #ScottishPeopleTwitter Me this month.

  7. Nothing like a tropical storm and 28 hour power outage to re-arrange one's week. 😳 🔫
  8. Simple Italy by Unison Research and MK S150s.
  9. Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. Secretary of Education Betsy Devos after falling off one of her 8 yachts. That's Elijah Cummings, but A for effort there Marco. Comet NEOWISE over Stonehenge.
  10. Man, bananas do NOT keep in this heat. I bought a bunch earlier this week and they were already barely edible. I threw three of them into my blender along with some ice and (non biohazard) protein powder left over from the above: The end result was not bad. The truth is 3 bananas (especially squishy ones) blend down in to remarkably little volume.
