Things I Like

Short-form entries on, well...things I like! These aren't intended as recommendations, but as a hey, this is a thing I enjoy that I can force myself not to write hundreds of words on. (So, that's what separates this page from my Thoughts page!) This is also partly a reference for myself and a self-indulgent exercise in yaaaay organization. The feelings I attribute to anything are a part of that!

An MMD video using models from the game El Shaddai. It is an experience.

Hi, I'm one of five people who bought El Shaddai on PS3! It's legacy in my brain for all these years is primarily this video. Something about it just makes me lose it.

How I do Discord on my phone! Really nice and still uses the older UI so it isn't godawful stupid Discord stop trying to make me live this life. It even handles going from the front screen to the main screen and back on my Galaxy Fold way better than the official app. My only complaint is that themes don't seem to account for foldable phones, so the background is always a little distorted on either screen for me, but it's still pretty and is just for me, so I'm living with it!

Adds the use of themes and plugins that expand Discord's features.

If you are also a bit desktop user like me, then I definitely rec it for the added functionality, but also...getting to customize a theme and make the interface more pleasant on your eyes specifically is so nice too. *^____^*

A tale of sockpuppet love and death in the ownership of a diaper fetish site in a NaNoWriMo mod, and the other NaNoWriMo mod who has beef with the diaper fetish mod and got the NaNoWriMo forums nuked in the process.

Scroll down a few comments to get to the full write up. It is kind of bonkers insane additional details to the NaNoWriMo meltdown I only tangentially heard about.

Nice and organized and wonderfully convenient to read manga through. It syncs with Anilist and other tracking sites. There's a few other Tachiyomi forks still kicking if you look around, too.

I love this cover of Rolling Girl, and it fits gorgeously for Sunny. If you've played Omori, please give it a watch!
