  25.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Which would have been what I would say If I cared. Also its kinda funny since it falls almost during Carnaval season so i end up seeing store fronts with both&amp;nbsp; masks and heart.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Speaking of Carnaval this year I didnt bother watching the parades the weather wasn&amp;acute;t great for it.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As for Valentine&amp;acute;s well, I spent it by baking brownies with nuts then shared them with family. The recipe works for they were delicious.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also been reading some fanfic of my favorite ships, that&amp;acute;s pretty the only reason I look foward to, those fic writers have been working overtime. Idk if I might share my recommendations here. Perhaps in a different entry with an age restriction.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/br&gt;Let&amp;acute;s see I tried to play Animal Crossing on Gamecube, but I have yet to receive a letter, and its has been almost a month since I logged off so&amp;nbsp; another villager left. i cheated a little and tried to experience groundhog day, which is hilarious. its just Resetti, showing up declaring how long will winter will last and yell Scram!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Finally, my new fish seem to get along well.&amp;nbsp; Only one died after a few days, but otherwise everyone is healthy. Not to mention new fish have been born! But i can only see two of them.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As for the algae eater verdict, boy do they do a very good job of removing the algae, my filter and glass was covered in this brownish and green algae, and its now clean. Those fish sure a bunch of miracle workers.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The only fish that is not doing so well, is one of my platys, the second one to be born there. There seems to be an issue with her swimming bladder, since she is now swimming upside down and has trouble to get to the bottom. I&amp;acute;ve quarantined her and tried to feed her some cooked peas and have her fasting.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Could be constipation, could be a bacterial infection, I also ruled out water quality. Let&amp;acute;s hope this works and she gets better.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;gtx-trans-icon&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=23532&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  39.  <title>Just Pet Stuff</title>
  40.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/23149.html</link>
  41.  <description>Last week I noticed that some older fish have started to die out and&amp;nbsp; I might need to add some new guppies and platys to the ones who were in the tank for two reasons.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One to keep the population genetically healthy, and two, I had more males guppies than females, and more females platys than the male.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I went to my store of choice as usually, its a more local store, but the owners seem to know what they&amp;acute;re doing, to the point i was able to get advice on how to deal with this bloom of algae Ive been dealing with as well as some care tips.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Besides the guppies and platys, I got some extra tetra neons to replace the dead ones, some cool looking rummy nose tetras, and some algae eater fish, who are able to stuck to the glass, a bit similar to plecos but without the whole growing to a large size issue.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ABLVV84j8d5g-PqKyv6VVjN9YjJxGwJN_WGEu3Gmtip3lDMjXL7-nTB25uTDMK6_wlwhVKvYFb4sdxeNpPJ6IiSUeRu1ZBbFKZkOtkxTWrWwE69qbFJ7zYX7=w2400&quot; alt=&quot;a small yellow fish stuck to glass&quot; width=&quot;500&quot; height=&quot;225&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The lady that worked there told be to give less food, maybe feed those algae wafer once a week, and less hours with the light turned on. I hope it works.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also some fun news one of my orchids is flowering again? But way earlier than usual. Just what is going on? Maybe be next to the windows is doing it some good.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ABLVV866lpaN3Nx6-sfLRx564QIKpkV4qSJyx-A4aJnLZnxYjZw2h827FG1c8mKsHDlee_mNIG6v7cgHKQhfAyWKPb6dy8oadfooE2_gSEPoR1CNAo7DpIQc=w2400&quot; alt=&quot;a purple orchid&quot; width=&quot;500&quot; height=&quot;225&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One a less positive note, I gotta vent about one of the new neighbors. The last ones were cat owners, so I never had this issue. But&amp;nbsp; this one is a Dog owner and an irresponsible&amp;nbsp; one at that.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I was trying to get enter the building, when my neighbour&amp;acute;s Dog tried to chase me and barked at me, growling showing its teeth. I&amp;acute;ve always felt a bit nervous around dogs and this doesnt help matters.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Even worse the gall of this woman, she had a untied leash on her hand in front of me and tell me to not run it makes things worse?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Lady, you&amp;acute;re the one who has the dog running around, a dog you know very well know has the habit of barking at people and acting in an intimidating manner.&amp;nbsp; But I&amp;acute;m the one who&amp;acute;s has to be careful not to set it off? And she did not bother grabbing the dog by the way and get it to calm down.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And Im not the only one who has complaints, this woman has the habit of letting her pet roam around free in front of the building and shit all over the place, specially near the entrance, to the point that another neighbor accidentally stepped on dog poo.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So, now I gotta enter through the garage instead of the entrance, because i dont know when the dog will be there. And of course nothing is gonna be done about this.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;God I hate, irresponsible pet owners, why bother have them at all if not gonna bother to look after them and instead just let them disturb other people.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;That woman deserves to have someone scoop that shit and leave it at her doorstep just to see how she likes it.&lt;div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;gtx-trans-icon&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=23149&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  57.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Last weekend went on another trip to spain. Its been several months since I last been.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This area i visited had a small park next to a river, it a game field, playgroundd for the kids and a small cafe closed.&lt;br /&gt;Also lots of cartoon grafitti and murals for some reason:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ABLVV86MHPaMVrgWh6AiwQq5tvDD2BigyeUinhFAw9X9ScECSJ0ZVc8Om-XtnBr_KdKECJOiOGEmFnh7mMjpyFJdzC7vZXH__saLTwAQ1Ff4qVWSZQhFBVZl=w2400&quot; width=&quot;400&quot; height=&quot;889&quot; alt=&quot;a mural with video game characters from pokmeon and mario&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ABLVV86StHj9YOY8HfxFbjy2g_RWsATqol2ub76yLrhWumh7Er_O-_kDXHwrwuYSoFKr7yTJQ38QHs5MvyFvdUhh07T2-2kzTSTi3-B7S9JP6wowgYtAF7mG=w2400&quot; alt=&quot;a mural with adventure time characters&quot; width=&quot;500&quot; height=&quot;225&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The fun part is that is has a slide running down a small hill, you could either climb down on foot or simply go down a slide, which as you can guess I could not resist to ride it.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also there were ducks and geese, tons. A small family was even feeding them&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ABLVV84qljraH47DBaKMvkGPWATnrsCzbz0mNHSEOvshWRLchfKZu9oiseOVfpD3GquPz8VcsDqNaEODttFsuywri4FLgdTSbabwXUZDgPfw8X-D1CLNyf-2=w2400&quot; alt=&quot;a duck&quot; width=&quot;500&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ABLVV87fxvZthTycXEJ7GNbH2itqIGh_lpyJ5QESXZsr_gQ_IMq1GOIe6EFpagwBVYWrYskJQo9hO84QOsSScqzLHihEXvkCva-J3JUoRcfKg3sS6tAQr2Ui=w2400&quot; alt=&quot;a bunch of geese and ducks being fed by humans&quot; width=&quot;500&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And yes were those geese freaking loud.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Other birds I saw besides well these, were egrets, specially near culture fields and cormorants. No birds of prey though. I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of them there in the summer.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Finished the rest of trip by eating&amp;nbsp; lunch next to the river, before making the trip home. I did try these kechup flavored chips, sorta regretted adn wondered why didnt I picked the sourcream onion flavored ones instead.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Such is life.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=22918&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  68.  <title>Gaming with Family</title>
  69.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/22695.html</link>
  70.  <description>So I introduced my sister the wonders of Piracy of Modern games. I even&amp;nbsp; introduced her to figtgirl as my favorite place to get games. Yes, I pirate them sometimes so sue me, I bought some as well mostly as bundles from humble bundle or itch.io&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;div&gt;I was kinda surprised since she wasn&amp;acute;t much of a gamer. I mean she is except she tends to be incredibly pick and prefers to stick to like old windows games on a virtual machine. Games she used to play in our childhoods of she wish she could have access back then.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But she saw a video from her favorite channel about the best cozy videos, liked what she saw and asked for my help to get them.&lt;br /&gt;The ones she wanted? Power Wash Simulator and Dreamlight Valley.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Kinda of shame she didn&apos;t asked me for Stardew Valley, as I do have a legitimate copy i bought on gog that I could, and maybe we could go for co-op. Ah well, one of these days.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;She went nuts for Power Wash, see she to clean and organize things, and found game relaxing. It gets 5 stars from her.&lt;br /&gt;As for Dreamligth, Its understandable as she is a big Disney fan, and she grew up pretty playing Disney Interactive Games, having a chill games where she can hang with faves also appealing.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This was also the reason why I was kinda disappointed that I was no longer going to be free to play. it would&amp;acute;ve been the perfect game for both to play. Me for the animal crossing style gameplay and her the whole cuteness.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Still we kinda played together anyway?&amp;nbsp; I sat next to her and help her create a character. When I said she isnt much of a gamer, she really isn&amp;acute;t, as she it not all that familiar with most modern games.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;So I helped guide her through the first quests,&amp;nbsp; dig and find some stuff. I guess in a way we kinda did play the game together.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Now, I know why they introduced Co-op in Animal crossing, it was kinda fun.&lt;br /&gt;Silver lining I find out that in Multiplayer it isn&amp;acute;t a co-op mode but more of a your friend can visit you trade items and show, but you cant do any missions during online so no help from your friends.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;At this point in the game we finally found all the magic tools,&amp;nbsp; helped goofy and mickey, got a level both the regular and friendship meters, and we are still trying to finish Opening Scrooge McDcuk store and opening the Castle.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It will be a while before she picks up the game again, but she told she was gonna invited me to play with her again one these days, as something we could do together.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Oh god, now that I have tried the game I wanna continue, i mean I guess I could just install on my pc and create my own character. Maybe I might give her some tips once I figured this out.&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=22695&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  81.  <title>Wasting time with Virtual Machines</title>
  82.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/22474.html</link>
  83.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Here i am yet&amp;nbsp; again messing around with virtual machines just to see if i can get some Windows 98 games working.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Well it was disaster, first i installed, get a huge headache since it would install properly, so I go and hunt for a patch, it works, then i try to install some drivers, specially scitech.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Scitech makes windows stop working, doesnt work well on Virtualbox. So i give up try to use Pcem instead. It works but it stutters so much.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also Virtualbox and VMare are crap when it comes to virtualize 3ds capabilities. Virtualbox used to but then removed that feature in future updates.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I was about to give up and hope that gog or even the PC Collection Chamber Blog might have the titles i want for quick installation, but lo and behold a kind show has already created a pre-installation of Windows 98 for PCEM on&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=&quot;http://archive.org/details/pcemwin98se&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt; the Internet Archive&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It stutters a bit, but nearly as bad when I tried to install myself, I mean it kinda depends on the game, I went through the list of tested games tried one and it works fine.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I guess I could try 86box as someone else suggested since its a more uddapted fork for PCEM, but I dunno.&lt;br /&gt;Maybe when I have more motivation.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As for my foray into Linux, i feel its going to be short lived well for now, maybe I&amp;acute;ll try again once Windows 10 stops getting free updates cause there is now way Im paying for&amp;nbsp; their program. And I dont even like windows 11.&lt;br /&gt;I guess the reason why I hesitate to make the leap is because its because I have no guaranty which games will work perfectly.&lt;br /&gt;I know there&amp;acute;s wine and proton, and they have console emulator. But when it comes to pirated and cracked games? that is a bit harder.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also even if it legit they might even work. I tried Portal through steam and it wont launch, or maybe Im doing it wrong.&lt;br /&gt;Who knows a lot could change in a year maybe things will improve and I&amp;acute;ll stop being such a noob by then.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Another reason while my adventure in Linux have been abandoned is that the old laptop where I installed Linux Mint to give a new Life? Stopped working. It wont turn on.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;At first I thought it was because the installation, but turns out it was still like this even when it was a mostly windows laptop, so I can either blame the battery, or the fact that its really really old (it was bought in 2010).&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You know what they say, Linux is only free if you dont value your time, I guess the same thing can be said with Windows emulation&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=22474&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  93.  <title>Its 2024 Already so Happy New Year!</title>
  94.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/22075.html</link>
  95.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Well another year has passed by its time for some reflection.&lt;br /&gt;Well I got say I haven&amp;acute;t exactly managed to complete my resolutions but that is life for ya.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;How I spent my last day of the year was funny mind you, I spend it trying to install Linux, yes Linux (Mint) on this very old laptop i had laying around. Well notebook actually. It did serve me well worked enough for my college essays and maybe some light gaming.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;I was actually inspired by the news that since windows 10 is about to no longer have support and therefore making a lot of still working pcs obsolete since they cant run windows 11.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Rather than get rid of it I decided to give it a new lease in life, installing it was easier than I thought, and thanks to applications like &lt;a href=&quot;http://lutris.net/&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;lutris &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;i can run some gog games there, i even managed to run Stardew Valley in it which is very light on old pcs.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;However, I havent tested it out if will run pirated/cracked games, It is possible, but I hear there&amp;acute;s a specific way to install it otherwise it wont work.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The rest of the day was uneventful, I did open up and played a session of Animal Crossing, where there was a New Years event and funny enough used it as a Countdown timer in the background, while I was watching gremlins, which by the way the moment they all start eating at&amp;nbsp; midnight starts around the 40 minutes mark, just for the funsies).&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And now for the fun part what did I do this year?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Learned to Cook&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Learned How to Configure Linux at the last Minute&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Finally Finished All the Library Layouts for My Site&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Started Reading a book series (Vampire Hunter D and Discworld)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Took a break from photography ( I have too many photos I have yet to organize)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Learned to acess a BBS (Bulleting Board system) using Syncterm&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Started using social media less and less, I think Ive been in hiatus from spacehey, left most of tumblr posts on queue, and even thought i still have a twitter account (&amp;nbsp; mostly for fanart and to keep in touch with some friends) it feels like its getting stupid by the minute, i can barely scroll it except for a few minutes a day if at all.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Haven&amp;acute;t written a Game review for my blog in a while&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Kept a bullet journal&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Wanted to learn how to do a solo RPG, but havent gotten around to starting a game session yet&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Dealing with some weird and fucked up personal stuff which I will not share the details of.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Finally got around watching the 98 anime version of Trigun. I remember how popular it was in the 2000s but i never got around cause I though the protagonist would be anoying? just another idiotic anime hero? Well I was wrong.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Some new Fish were Born this year, and some died, like my gorgeous sailfin molly and a swordtail, the shrimp are still live and kicking holy shit.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Got my 3DS working again&amp;nbsp;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Spend the last week of august sick, wondering if it was covid, then recovered&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Dad had Surgery.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some 2024 Plans:&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Actually Writing at least one article for the Literature section of my website&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Maybe redo some of the flawed layout while im at it and make my site more responsive&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Finishh organizing all my photos&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Get better at Drawing&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Tackle my Game Backlog&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Non-personal events of 2023:&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;AI keeps invading every corner of the internet which is pissing everyone off&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;There was a writers strike, it ended so Im not expecting any big movies premiering anytime soon and animators are starting to unionize&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Henry Kissinger Died, good ridance&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Russia still trying to invade Ukraine&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Israel using hamas attacks to justify a full on genocide on Palestinians and they are starting to loose the narrative a bit&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Hbomberguy reveals that a Pompous Gay youtuber name James Somerton has been plagialrizing from other queer people&amp;acute;s work, also did some light racism, transphobia and has a beef with women, his career is now in shambles&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;The Final and Second of Loki has aired, the ending was sort divisive among fans, but maybe it will start a new chapter for him in the MCU?&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;My Town finally has a new bus transport system, but its not running so well.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Marvel&amp;acute;s What if Just aired, and we&amp;acute;re getting a season 3 already and maybe some hints of the show adressing Loki&amp;acute;s sacrifice in his own show, maybe?&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Everyone is losing their minds over the twist in What We Do In the Shadows with Guillermo finding out he doenst enjoy being a vampire, and what will it mean for his character arc from now on.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Also people lost their minds over Good Omens and Our Flag means death, and by losing their minds I mean complete heartbreak.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Tumblr got rid of Tumblr live&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Threads tries to get into this fediverse thing, not a lot of Mastodon folks were happy about it, some instances and user went as far as to block threads&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Neopets has a new team now, fingers crossed if this will lead to a proper revival&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;That shitty bogleech dude&lt;a href=&quot;http://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/6264.html&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt; i mentioned last year&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;, spent two months on twitter just harrassing and arguing over fanfiction discourse, said some inflammatory shit and acted like an all around asshole, it feels like its an annual occurrence now.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Chances are Trump might not be able to run for President&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;My Country just aproved the right of self-determination of identity and right of gender self-expression for students in schools, which is good news for the trans kids.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Vulcanic Eruption in Iceland&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Nintendo decided to turn off online services for the Wii, 3DS and WiiU systems in Early april of 2024, with it goes down the multiplayer feature, thankfully Pretendo might help preseve those features.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;David Tennant as the Doctor is back, Baby! Well sorta, some weird stuff caused him to regenerate into two? Also this newer version by Ncuti Gatwa, fucks.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Elon Musk creates a Car that is a safety hazard both to Passengers and Pedestrians alike, it looks like it was designed by a child.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;And that was pretty much how 2023 went from my prespective, lets see what 2024 will bring. Also its the year of the dragon!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So happy Yaoi!&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=22075&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  110.  <title>Christmas has Come and Gone</title>
  111.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/21792.html</link>
  112.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Honestly, Im not much for celebrating Christmas all that much, mostly because it has not been a very pleasant affair for me this past couple for years, and a lot of Christmas song kinda annoy the heck out of me.&amp;nbsp; Not gonna got into detail But let&amp;acute;s just say this year has been awful than usual.&lt;br /&gt;Sure, I might change my site to a more festive theme for the fun of it, and maybe see the city lights but that&amp;acute;s about it&lt;br /&gt;The closest thing I have to celebrate it if you can call that is enjoying some festive media I guess?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And after that starts what I&amp;acute;m calling the liminal time holiday, the couples of day before new years Eve where nothing much happens and is the perfect time just do fuck all. This is the best time of year in my opinion, not a lot of pressure to do festivites with family members you dont care about, no stress.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Anyway enough about that here&amp;acute;s my personal list of Holiday Media I&amp;acute;ve watched this season:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Movies/TV Shows:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Marvel&amp;acute;s What if (I swear the Christmas Episode is straight out of the Avenger&amp;acute;s Tower tumblr fanfic era, love it)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Anna and The Apocalypse (It&amp;acute;s a christmas Musical but with zombie, it does end on a depressing not though)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Gremlins (I mean its a Classic)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;That One Community Episode ( actually i saw it on December the 10th, because the joke is funnier that way)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;The Hogfather (Kinda slow paced, but still I have a thing with movies where a skeleton plays Santa)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;South Park Bigger, Longer and Uncut (not exactly a christmas movie, but its kinda snowy, has a bunch memorable songs and funny moments, however some jokes have not aged well)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Batman Returns ( Imean it is set during Christmas, and Danny Devito is on this one, ironically its even funnier than I remembered for&amp;nbsp; such a dark movie)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Merry Little Batman (another Batman christmas movie but this one is a lot cheerful and mroe kid friendly, Damian is the main character, also I swear I was getting Batjoke vibes in the end.)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Games:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Bully: Scholarship Edition (well it has an entire chapter set during Winter, you can start snowfights! As well a bunch of christmas themed missions and outfits, I had fun just causing mayhem)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Animal Crossing (Both Gamecube and New leaf (the town is now covered in snow, trees have lights and there&amp;acute;s toyday with jingle, althought i think I had a lot more fun with the version from new Leaf because I get to dress up as Santa and give present to all the villagers)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Banzo Kazoie: How The Grunch stole Christmas Rom Hack (I had less fun with it maybe cause Im not that good with platformers, of course the music was kinda irritating me for a while)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Books:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;An Eldery Lady Must Not Be Crossed by Helene Tursten (its actually a sequel to An Eldery Lady is up to no good, you know those detective stories where you have a sweet old lady solves crimes? this is the reverse. Maud is an 88 year old who takes shit from no one and has no problem in commiting a little crime. Set during Christmas, it explores her past with a lot of dark humour in there, bonus it comes with a recipe for cookies)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;So yeah, 2023 has its days counted.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;While we wait here&amp;acute;s some funny videos:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;iframe width=&quot;560&quot; height=&quot;315&quot; src=&quot;https://www.youtube.com/embed/3tjIrHT42eQ?si=fK92DDYurT1Hqmiq&quot; title=&quot;YouTube video player&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allow=&quot;accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;lj-embed id=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;iframe width=&quot;560&quot; height=&quot;315&quot; src=&quot;https://www.youtube.com/embed/QLFvudDk1nM?si=DTf99GfzxV0qBYmc&quot; title=&quot;YouTube video player&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allow=&quot;accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;ljembed&quot; style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;iframe width=&quot;560&quot; height=&quot;315&quot; src=&quot;https://www.youtube.com/embed/_yhgGgDhI5s?si=s4uJJ8Dxt0__nLs-&quot; title=&quot;YouTube video player&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allow=&quot;accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;ljembed&quot; style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;iframe width=&quot;560&quot; height=&quot;315&quot; src=&quot;https://www.youtube.com/embed/QLFvudDk1nM?si=B638snj6cJqn7l4a&quot; title=&quot;YouTube video player&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allow=&quot;accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=21792&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  126.  <title>Holiday Season is here, time for some games</title>
  127.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/21613.html</link>
  128.  <description>&amp;nbsp;I am very much aware i barely touched this journal in November, but hey december has arrived,&amp;nbsp; might as well say something.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;First off a new life update, my Neighbours have moved out two weekends ago, which means I will have to say goodbye to this cute fella that i mentioned on a previous entry. Goodbye &lt;a href=&quot;http://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/1642.html&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;Minnie you will be Missed.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;Other than that, nothing much has happened in November, aside from the fact that I&amp;acute;ve been neglecting my gaming wordpress blog a bit. I initially planned in posting my Coffin of Andy and Leyley review, but again, writer&amp;acute;s block, not even the 4thewords site didnt help.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So instead I gained an obsession in trying to install windows 98 on a virtual machine, Again, in order to play some old 90s games.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I think PCem seems to work more or less fine except in some games the sound stutters, while others dont have this issue. Honestly I got tired of it and decided to just go to good ol,&lt;a href=&quot;http://collectionchamber.blogspot.com/&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;PC Collection Chamber&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;for my retro gaming needs and i can just install them like a regular modern game, Yeah I know, there&amp;acute;s GOG who is a more of a legit way, but some game are missing.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And how else am I gonna play the discworld adventure games?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Yes you heard me right Discworld Games, but as a point and click adventure games, with the wizard Rincewind voiced by Eric idle, and has the typical humour and writting style in the books.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://i.ibb.co/k9cGMGs/bandicam-2023-11-29-22-08-46-425.jpg&quot; alt=&quot;a wizard and vampire in a bar&quot; width=&quot;500&quot; height=&quot;375&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Currently playing the second game, even thought I never finished the first one. I think my issue was with the puzzles. You know how 90s puzzle solving games are. I know its cheating but I had to use &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.uhs-hints.com/&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;a walkthrough&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt; otherwise it would be impossible.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So plot of the second game, Death is missing, Rincewind has to find him or otherwise the world will be stuff with a bunch of dead people running around for eternity.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I finished the first chapter and much to my amusement, turns out Death just decided to skip out on work and is Just chilling:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://i.ibb.co/3mZK7nS/bandicam-2023-11-30-21-53-49-357.jpg&quot; alt=&quot;death from discworld, sitting on a beach chair with a sun hat and a beer glass&quot; width=&quot;500&quot; height=&quot;375&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And Rincewind has to go get him to get off his ass and do his job.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Ironically on the day I was playing this i got news after that Henry Kissinger just died, and he was 100 years old. I guess that is a bit funny in hindsight.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Now, let&amp;acute;s see if I can finish the game this time around.&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=21613&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

I never bother to follow the series that came after that.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Last Song I Listened to: &lt;/strong&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB3flVtXGqo&quot;&gt;Feeling it Creeping by David Hale&lt;/a&gt;, found this one on accident. it was a viral videos about &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekqpEB75ghk&quot;&gt;Slashers having fun at a spirit halloween.&lt;/a&gt; its kinda catchy&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Last Movie: &lt;/strong&gt;Freaky (2020), a comedic bodyswap story but this time it involves a serial killer&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Last Series: &lt;/strong&gt;Loki, the series finale is going to air this week! Can&amp;acute;t wait.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Curently reading:&lt;/strong&gt; Vampire Hunter D: Tyrant&amp;acute;s Stars Part 3 and Part 4.

  151.  <title>Happy Halloween!</title>
  152.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/21147.html</link>
  153.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Another year another Halloween, am I right?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Sadly I did not wear a costume,again Halloween is more seen as an american Holiday. Did see a lot of kids going to school in costume though.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I mostly spent it watching movies an dplaying spooky games. I&amp;acute;ve also finished writing the conten for my Pokemon Halloween Page.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Finished the text now I need to the graphics. I was going to to post it on Halloween, but sadly I was too busy so Im probably gonna end up uploading it off season.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This year for my website I decided to do something smaller, I know last year I did an entire Halloween page for the Yesterweb Trick or Treat Project, ( well before that community imploded in a bad way.) Also the video game section of my Monsters Libary Page was due to have an entry.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As for my anual consumption of spooky media here&amp;acute;s what I&amp;acute;ve got so far&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Movies&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;The Chucky as well as the Child Play Series (not very scary but i find the concept of a serial killer as a doll hilarious&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;The Evil Dead Triology (this one is wildd, imagine it starting off as more traditional horror, only to end as a Isekai)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;The first Friday the 13th (I did not expect the ending, i thought jason was gonna play a much bigger roll, and I watched it on a actual Friday the 13th&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Creepshow (Stephen King is on this Movie&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://archive.org/details/the-halloween-tree_202106&quot;&gt;The Halloween Tree&lt;/a&gt; ( a classic Halloween cartoon special, I was more on this one for the spooky visuals, it has its charms.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Castlevania Nocturne (i was actually excited for this one, I loved Orlox and I excited we&amp;acute;re getting to see Alucard again!)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Halloween With Addams Family (oldschool but cute, the family ends up scaring a bunch of crooks by accident)&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;House Of Villains (A house of mouse halloween special, I always loved this show, specially when you have like Chernabog and Maleficent, together?

  167.  <title>Fall Has Arrived</title>
  168.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/20799.html</link>
  169.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Fall weather sure took its sweet time, so much I managed to get a few extra beach days in. But now we&amp;acute;re dealing a bunch of stormy days.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So, recently my dad had to go the hospital for surgery, he&amp;acute;s now back home (not that this doesnt make him any less grumpier than usual). and I&amp;acute;ve been watching a couple of horror movies to celebrate halloween month.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Mostly Evil Dead and the Child&amp;acute;s Play series, which i think fall more the comedic side of horror. I&amp;acute;m also close to finish watching Castlevania Nocturned.&lt;br /&gt;I was pleasantly suprised how Orlox&amp;acute;s story went as character, it was interesting, I like the idea that even vampires have differents values among themselves. It can kind of boring to see them all be chaotic evil, so.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I&amp;acute;m also currently trying to see If I can at least code a single halloween page for my site. i already did the trick-or-treat websurf thing last year, well before I became disenchanted with the Yesterweb community. So might as well do something else.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I&amp;acute;m also thinking of checking out a certain horror RPG that is making waves lately, called the Coffin of Andy and Leyley where the main&amp;nbsp; characters are a pair of murderous siblings. I might write a review for my gaming blog once I&amp;acute;m done with it. i heard good things about it.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Been to bluesky for a few days, things seem ok i guess, however there&amp;acute;s been an issue where bots would simply grab codes that people were openly sharing online , result less than stellar acounts on there. Seriously people just share your codes in DMs or with a online friend you trust.&lt;br /&gt;While I guess you could consider it a bit of a improvement over the other blue site, it still has a few kinks to go trought.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Speaking of the other blue site, The Amazing Muskrat wants people to play in order to post, like that is gonna end well.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And speaking of which, I saw a bunch of online mutuals of mine dealing with harrassment from non other than bogleech both on tumblr and twitter ( he&amp;acute;s send death threats again?)&amp;nbsp; I remember mentioning how heartbroken &lt;a href=&quot;http://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/6264.html&quot;&gt;I was at his actions last year&lt;/a&gt;. How come someone is a horror artists be playing as the fiction police. Honestly the dude has been throwing a tantrum over fandom discourse for days. Days! This dude has no life I tell ya.&lt;br /&gt;And people finally found out about the risk&amp;eacute; fanart he shared lol. I knew he had some skeletons in his closet, yet thinks he is above is own standards. It is unfortunate, that he is still kind of a popular tumblr blogger there, even I&amp;acute;ve blacklisted his name his posts are still shared everywhere, and you gonna deal with his unhinged fans that will send you suicide bait if you so much as critize him. And he turns to be a huge transpbhobe too. Yikes. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As &amp;quot;in i&amp;acute;ll be erasing the queer identidies of people who disagree with me&amp;quot;, type of transphobe. And to think he is a grown ass man who is married to a non-binary person.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;So he should know better.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;At least that gooseworxs person seem to&lt;a href=&quot;http://twitter.com/GooseworxMusic/status/1716225019297304882/photo/2&quot;&gt; have a good head on their shoulders&lt;/a&gt;, I&amp;acute;ve watch the new Amazing Digital Circus Pilot. It seem fun and wacky, but with a dark undertone.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;ljembed&quot; style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;iframe width=&quot;560&quot; height=&quot;315&quot; src=&quot;https://www.youtube.com/embed/HwAPLk_sQ3w?si=DkkWyQC8Lo7dSiX8&quot; title=&quot;YouTube video player&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allow=&quot;accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture; web-share&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;However I&amp;acute;m scared to go into the fandom, because I know the kind of people its gonna attract.&amp;nbsp; Some have even started drama over harrassing one of the voice actors and I think I just stick to watching the show, and ocassionaly&amp;nbsp; reblog fanart from online friend s they draw about it.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;still I try to think on the positive and focus and the fun character designs.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Yeah that is about it from own necks in the woods on the internet for today. I guess I&amp;acute;ll be positing again I a couple of weeks, or whene ver I feel like it.&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=20799&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  186.  <title>The Start of Fall</title>
  187.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/20625.html</link>
  188.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Technically fall has started, but it still like summer, so much so i still managed to go to the beach this week, even though the sea was too agitated to go for a swim. Perks of living in a coastal area I guess.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So how are things going on in my life lately. Let&amp;acute;s see I decided to get off my ass and start learning how to cook properly. I realize at this point it my life, it feels embarrassing not to know.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Its actually been that way for most of my life I feel like I&apos;m a slow learner when it comes to basic life skils, and playing catch only learning stuff that people have already figured it out at certain life stages. I know I shouldn&apos;t be hard at myself, but its something that i have hard time admitting to other people.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also another person in my family fell sick, my Dad, however its not related to our illness, but something to do with his digestive system going out of wack. he went to the Doctor&amp;nbsp; and is now taking some meds so he should be fine.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;That is for my daily musings on for the other stuff.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I finally finished playing Lux Pain, this after a decade to giving up half way, it ended too early though. Turns out I got the regular ending .The true ending has at least two more chapters to go through. I&amp;acute;m gonna see if I can try again one of these days, specially since it has a game plus mod after you complete it for the first time.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;During the weekend I may have played Breath of the Wild on an PC Emulator for 6 hours straight, Finally found the first shrines and got out of that goddamn plateau, and this after three Months of procrastinating. I unlocked the bomb rune, and now i&amp;acute;m having way too much fun throwing at enemies.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One thing i like to do is find a hill near an enemy camp, throw the bomb, detonate it, then rise and repeat till all are dead. And I don&amp;acute;t even need to waste my weapons on them.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To end this entry, I sorta caved in and finally joined bluesky out of curiosity, courtesy of an only mutual who just happened to have an invite. I know I did point out somewhere here that I was getting tired of making all this socmed accounts, trying to find better alternatives or trying to keep in contact with everyone from friends to fave artists.&lt;br /&gt;And how I was content with just using mastodon, as the twitter alternative.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Not to mention by initial skepticism or distrust of how bluesky is going to be handled. I guess I can say so far my experience has not been negative, well for now, and it might be due to the whole waitlist to get there and the lack of a central algorithm.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But time will tell if the vibe will remain the same once it gets out of beta and becomes open to the wilder public.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I might talk about this site in a future post once I get the hang of it. So for now I&amp;acute;m just enjoying the vibes.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=20625&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  201.  <title>September is here once again</title>
  202.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/20320.html</link>
  203.  <description>&amp;nbsp;September is here and with it people are coming back to work/school while other are finally using this as their vacation month after a couple of busy summer months.&lt;br /&gt;Its also that weird month where you feel like its supposed to be fall, but its summer.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As for me I feel like I have done fuck all and it feels like I&amp;acute;m still recovering from being sick. As in it killed my motivation. that being said its not all bad.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So i fixed my 3DS but noticed the battery isn&amp;acute;t lasting a long as I wanted it too. Like I&amp;acute;d play for like an hour and then the battery would drain, and I could only play with the charger plugged which defeats the purpose of it being a mobile device.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://images.squidge.org/images/2023/08/30/IMG_20230829_202201.md.jpeg&quot; alt=&quot;3ds with a loki theme&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Turns out I probably have to calibrate it by charging and lets it drain a couple of times, since its a thing that happens with newly installed batteries. Still its not as long as i wanted it to be. But i dont trust most of the other selllers. And I&amp;acute;m only just finding out that the battery used for a nintenndo switch controller is compatible with the 3ds. Same one. If only I knew that before buying. Ah well. i probably also dont see myself&amp;nbsp; bringing the 3ds outside that often.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Managed to install&amp;nbsp; a couples of games. Ones I wanted to play but didnt have the money since most of it was going towards my college education at the time.&amp;nbsp; I realized ironically I&amp;acute;ve turned my phone into an emulator/retro gaming device. It could even play pokemon moon. But i still prefer the official hardware.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I&amp;acute;ve got the taiko drum games, yokai watch, rythm heaven megamix, world ends with you, I even installed a bunch&amp;nbsp; of educational language learning games. I&amp;acute;ve been wanting a refresher on french. May this might be useful.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But my favorite game I&amp;acute;m having a blast with is Lux Pain. I was really found of it ever since I played it on the computer. But never got to finish it, specially with how clumsly the scribbling minigames sections were with a mouse.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://images.squidge.org/images/2023/09/11/f5d339cc-9eef-4732-aac9-4e02cbcf0924.jpeg&quot; alt=&quot;gamebox for the game lux pain&quot; width=&quot;400&quot; height=&quot;357&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Its one of the most interesting visual novel games I&amp;acute;ve played. I think it being a psychological horror mystery, helps. I also love some of the&amp;nbsp; small things, like the online forums you get to read everytime you visit the internet cafe. Its really a product of its time.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I might do a more throughout review once I finish playing it.&amp;nbsp; It&amp;acute;s a shame its an obscure game. If there is a game that would make for a decent anime adaptation is this one.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also after postponing I finally started reading on Witch Hat Atelier, and I. LOVE. IT.&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;I love the art, the world building, the magic system (which resembles the same system used in the owl house, was the creator of the show inspired by this?) then again sigil magic has been a trope in a lot of fantasy sotries. i think its how that tropes is applied here that makes it unique.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I lovedhow they aproach some of the themes, it does serve as bit of commentary on unjust systems.&amp;nbsp; The whole turns out that you need to be born with powers to be a witch is a lie, and anyone can do it if they have the knowledge and the tools, which makes for an iinteresting twist.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But then it poses a question about who should it be allowed acess, and what happens it if gets misused. Since magic can be both used to help and destroy. But on the other side of the coin it shows how the strictness of this gatekeeping can hurt people, specially those who need magic the most. Like some one with disabilities, or how unforgiving the magic authorities are if someone so much as makes a tiny slip up, even a child.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Not to mention how it fails victims of magic misuse. its one of those morally ambiguous stories that dont have a clear cut answer and i wanna see where this story is gonna go next.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;gtx-trans-icon&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=20320&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  218.  <title>Feeling Better</title>
  219.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/20113.html</link>
  220.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Well shit, I got sick as well. I ended spending the week just resting and eating hot soup. Fortunently we&amp;acute;re all feeling a bit better now.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But still I had to put my blaugust posts on hold, and I still don&amp;acute;t feel up to it. Not to mention how it sucks getting sick in the summer.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The good news I finally got my battery and got my 3DS working again, which is grea, I get to my Nintendogs and my old Animal Crossing Town, and I can finally start working on Modding it.&amp;nbsp; Althought I will only do it once I recover completly.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In the meantime I&amp;acute;ve been doing some bingewatching. Just started watching Ragnarok whose just aired its third season! I&amp;acute;ve only watch two so far, really enjoying the weird family dynamic between Laurits and is weird giant tapeworm son. I plan on enjoying this one a bit slowy, wanna make it last.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But the show I&amp;acute;ve recently got obessed with is the Harley Quinn series. This has actually been on my backlog, since I only watched season 1 and three episodes for season 3. As far as an adult show with queer characters go and deals with super villains, it was fun.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I certainlty did not count on the Joker as a family man I&amp;acute;ll give them that, and how they dealt with Ivy&amp;acute;s and Harley&amp;acute;s relationship. And oh boy do i love me some messy romances.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=20113&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  233.  <title>Still with Problems, But there´s good news</title>
  234.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/19841.html</link>
  235.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Yeah, family members still sick. My sisters says she&amp;acute;s feeling a bit better, but I have to keep insisting her to go to bed and rest. Not to mention the weather isn&amp;acute;t great these past days. It&amp;acute;s been windy.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And also my blog feed to my neocities site is still not working. I&amp;acute;ve contacted support but I&amp;acute;m waiting for an answers. Did I mess up the tags again?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;That&amp;acute;s the negative part going on my life now for the happier part.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Good news, the new battery I ordered for my 3ds is well on its way, I got a phone call confirming my adress and I should get it on Monday baby!&lt;br /&gt;God I hope this will finally get the console working, I suspect its the battery that went caput.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;See I plan on try and hack the 3ds throught &lt;a href=&quot;http://3ds.hacks.guide/&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;this guide&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;. Ever since I&amp;acute;ve heard how easy it is to do I&amp;acute;been wanting to do it, since I wanna try some homebrew stuff, and also since the official eshop is now closed I feel it&amp;acute;s only morally correct to pirate those games for archival purposes. Also I&amp;acute;ve seen some nice user made fan wallpaper, I wanna do so much more with my 3ds.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can even emulate older consoles imagine that.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I also just received a bunch of premanent markers for drawing purposes. I&amp;acute;ve been delaying practicing my art skills, so myabe this might be the thing to motivate me to do so.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;gtx-trans-icon&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=19841&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  248.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Its not just my Mom who fell ill, but sister as well who seems to have come with something. Yep I probably Have reason to be worried.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I&amp;acute;m gonna have to assume I might have caught it, except I have yet to show symptoms, so yeah the trip to the Viking event is probably cancelled.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Well silverlining is that it doesnt seem like Mom is getting worse,, but still. I dunno if I&amp;acute;m up to work on my other projects this week. I&amp;acute;m probably gonna just play some videogames, and constantly monitor them and hope things improve.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=19502&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  257.  <title>This week in my life</title>
  258.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/19407.html</link>
  259.  <description>So I made plans with family for us to visit this viking themed festival, seeing I spent some time visiting a medieval fair and another which was ancient roman themed,&amp;nbsp; I even got a cute necklace at the fair-&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But sadly those plans might not happen because my Mom just got sick, I hope its not too serious. But this Covid Pandemic has got me on edge, I&amp;acute;ve been checking up on her and giving her soup. And she&amp;acute;s been resting so maybe she might get better in a couple of days? I hope.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also for some reason the feed of this blog on my website stopped working, I went to the section and all the feed posts, just gone. Either its a fluke and it will get back soon or I will have to figure some alternative way to make it make it work or I scrap the whole thing and just start hosting and posting post manually.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As for what would happen to this dreamwitdth blog, I dunno turn it into a full fandom blog, or something?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Seriously at this while all of this is happening, it&amp;acute;s suprising I&amp;acute;ve managed to post a single blog post for Blaugust at all. I promised I would try and post at least once a day this year, and it seems to be failing. Only had 5 posts so far, and we&amp;acute;re in middle of august.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To be fair the other reason is because I procastinated and decided to spend a week in the beach, it was really good weather out there good for swimming. And I don&amp;acute;t get a lot those days around here.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The one few positive things that are happening is that I started playing the first animal crossing game on an emulator. &lt;a href=&quot;http://ghastlymirror.wordpress.com/tag/animal-crossing/&quot;&gt;Its been fun so far,&lt;/a&gt; maybe not with all the bells and whistles of the newer versions but I do find the villagers more entertaining. They are just so mean its hilarious.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I also been checking out Palia.&amp;nbsp; It&amp;acute;s ok I guess,&amp;nbsp; Its not exactly innovating when it comes to a farmsim.&amp;nbsp; I think the main draw is mostly through it social aspect however I haven&amp;acute;t exactly found someone to play it with. That and its free to play.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It&amp;acute;s currently on beta and free to play if anyone is curious about it. I even got a &lt;a href=&quot;http://accounts.palia.com/sign-up?referral=078ed143-d9ee-4c26-a668-78edd1e7c9c1&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;referral code&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;, character name is Liam Winters if anyone wants to add me (yes you can give&amp;nbsp; a first and lastname, ironically&amp;nbsp; this the name of one my ocs).&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But yeah I could use a game like thing seeing how things are going right now.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=19407&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  272.  <title>Famous Poet Writes Fanfic</title>
  273.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/19131.html</link>
  274.  <description>&amp;nbsp;So recently people woke to find this post:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://images.squidge.org/images/2023/08/10/aff579b25d1d6742.md.jpeg&quot; alt=&quot;Richard Siken Twitter post Fanfiction is transgressive. It co-opts the creator&amp;#39; s vision. its steps on it. it is fiction built on fiction. There can be no canon in it. I say do it, have at it. I have tried it and my destiel is better writing than my  Wincest. My johnlock is better than both&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;And the fandom went to chaos. Frankly I wanna know his AO3 username. I&amp;acute;m curious to see his fanfics.&lt;br /&gt;It is kinda comforting seeing a professional author admitting that he too partakes in it, specially in since there are people who there who still fanfic as an inferior form of art.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And it is fun.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also the irony I didn&amp;acute;t even knew who he was until this, I&amp;acute;m late to the party. But turns out he&amp;acute;s a very popular poet, to the point fanfic writers have even used his verses in their titles. And there even a character reading his book Crush&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;on heartstopper, which is even more ironic considering Alice Oseman&amp;acute;s errr... very negative views when it comes to BL manga.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;He was also very veryyy active in the &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.theawl.com/2015/06/the-poet-laureate-of-fan-fiction/&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;Sherlock Fandom.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I&amp;acute;m gonna add him to my reading list.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And of course I bet a certain group of fancops were probably fuming at the mouth because he admitted to writting wincest. To which his response in the matter is that it&amp;acute;s only fiction.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://images.squidge.org/images/2023/08/10/bandicam-2023-08-10-22-29-23-959.md.jpeg&quot; alt=&quot;It isn?t incest though.It is a story about incest based on a story not about incest played by actors who are not brothers. It is fantasy, which is valid, like all literature. Committing incest is a crime.&quot; width=&quot;500&quot; height=&quot;180&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Funny that, I&amp;acute;ve been telling people this for ages. Also its comforting being reminded that the so called average even normal people just don&amp;acute;t give a fuck. I mean look at the sucess of House of the Dragon.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So yeah sucks to be them if their favorite poet thinks they&amp;acute;re nuts.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=19131&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

Unfortunately today was windy as fuck, such in fact I swear I swallowed sand.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also i was recomended the infamous Tripas de Aveiro.&amp;nbsp; Can&amp;acute;t do wrong with pastries.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=18699&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  299.  <title>Participating in Blaugust again</title>
  300.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/18523.html</link>
  301.  <description>&amp;nbsp;It&amp;acute;s been a while, but after I figured out why I had trouble posting I&amp;acute;ve started using my wordpress blog again.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And I know what some people might think, don&amp;acute;t already use blogging service like dreamwidth anyway, why do you need another blog?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Well for one I already had a wordpress blog way before dreamwidth, and second this place is more for my weird thoughts, generic blog while the wordpress one is more of a hobby blog, where i review games, or so case my hobbies.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It&amp;acute;s a more specific blog.&lt;br /&gt;Also I&amp;acute;m using dreamwitdth as a blog for my personal website, through &lt;a href=&quot;http://sadgrl.online/learn/articles/blog-dreamwidth&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;using a tutorial&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;, mostly because I&amp;acute;m too lazy having to code a post by hand updating the page every time i do it.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I&amp;acute;m also doing Blausgust Again this year is you wanna read it on&lt;a href=&quot;http://ghastlymirror.wordpress.com/2023/08/01/welcome-to-blaugust-2023/&quot;&gt; &lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;wordpress&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;, which is an event where bloggers are challenged to write post for the entire month, and you it allows to foster a community with other bloggers.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It was kinda fun, also I got more people to check my blog out of it.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;That being said I was wondering if I was going do this year to the lack of inspiration, and again wordpress going off the shits.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Byt the way if you have a dreamwidth blog, you can participate in it too, any blog hosting service will do, even tumblr probably. I guess they&amp;acute;re trying to encourage and keep old style blogging alive somewhat, specially when social media as we know is going through a crisis.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Of course this mean I will be delaying some site updates for while.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=18523&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  312.  <title>Who´s that Bird?</title>
  313.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/18409.html</link>
  314.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Too Cloudy for me to go the beach so I went to the Park instead. And the bird watching gods must be smiling upon me because I got to saw one very cool bird.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Meet the Euroasian Hoppoe (Upupa epops) :&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://inaturalist-open-data.s3.amazonaws.com/photos/252322419/medium.png&quot; alt=&quot;an orange bird with black and white wings called an hoppoe&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Source: &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.biodiversity4all.org/photos/252322419&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;Noah Markus&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This incredible looking bird gets it&amp;acute;s name from the sound it makes, it&amp;acute;s also a migratory bird travelling to norht africa in the winter while going up&amp;nbsp; to Europe and Asia in the warmer months, to repoduce and for food.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And yes these guys enjoying digging in the soil with their beaks in search of bugs.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;What I did not expect was finding it here in this town of all place! Usually they tend to show up more in south of the country.&lt;br /&gt;And its a very cool, just watching them flying with black and white pattern, beautiful.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And to think it had to be the one day I didn&amp;acute;t brought my canon camera with me. Noooo.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Another cool bird I got saw that day was kingfisher, two of them in fact! These guys are very elusive and hard to see, but thanks to the park&amp;acute;s lake it seems to serve a santuary for all kinds of wildlife.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Summer really is the best season for birdwatching.&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;h1 style=&quot;font-family: Whitney, &amp;quot;Trebuchet MS&amp;quot;, Arial, sans-serif; margin: 10px 0px; box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 32px; font-weight: 300; line-height: 1.1; color: rgb(26, 26, 26);&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/h1&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=18409&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  327.  <title>The Sequel To Tiffany G</title>
  328.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/18033.html</link>
  329.  <description>So it&amp;acute;s that time of the year again and as always the OTW Board elections are coming up. And I never been glad to have donated since it allows me to vote. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt; But boy it has been some weird couple of days specially when the Archive of our own is involved. &lt;br /&gt;Some group of  hackers managed to send a bunch of DDOS making impossible for anyone to acess the site, send a ton of users panicking.&lt;br /&gt;  &lt;br /&gt;I myself regreted not finishing up up saving my fave fics, fortunently it was solved and the hardworking volunteers have put new measures into place to protect it.&lt;br /&gt; &lt;br /&gt; Now the group that did this claims to be some sort of extremist muslim group called Anonymous Sudan, however turns out it was a front for some other group, my bet is probably the Russians who often target western sites in order to sow discord. &lt;br /&gt; &lt;br /&gt;And now we get this &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt; Last year, I mentioned here about the Tiffany G situation. This time a new Player has entered the Ring, an upstart called Audrey Richards. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt; And she&amp;acute;s... drum roll please... A FREAKING REPUBLICAN! &lt;br /&gt; &lt;br /&gt;Feel free to &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.tumblr.com/asgardian-viking/723859873942700033?source=share&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;click the link here, to learn a bit more&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt; Godamn it. And looking a bit more into her background, I don&amp;acute;t want no Karen style &amp;quot;Think of the children&amp;quot; types anywhere near the board. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt; Seriously, can all these jackasses stop trying to subvert fandom archives for 5 minutes!?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt; On a more hopeful note, maybe she will lose, I&amp;acute;ve been reading the other candidates throught &lt;a href=&quot;http://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1BrATpKZxrFmCuTQ6yoYFeBtYNu9pzRcONPV5kqKoTx8/edit#gid=0&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;this very helpful&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: small;&quot;&gt; &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;compiled sheet&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt; &amp;nbsp;the competition is something fierce. I&amp;acute;m leaning towards Anh P, as i liked what they had to say in terms of making the archive more acessible as well their thoughts on relying in just one archive for fanwork preservation.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Fingers crossed on how the election goes.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;EDIT:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Ironically shortly after I posted this I found out &lt;a href=&quot;http://ibb.co/yXft1nt&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-size: medium;&quot;&gt;that Audrey has resigned.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/a&gt; Good news everyone!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So we can all now breath in relief and just focus on voting the candidated we think it&amp;acute;s best for the job.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Also I think it&amp;acute;s interesting in how she is framing this, I didn&amp;acute;t realized that being an informed voter, reading throught all the candidates interviews and doing a background check just to make this is the person we wanna vote and warn other if we find anything sus, is a &amp;quot;witch hunt&amp;quot; now.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For crying out loud she supports a political party who this past year has been trying to target queer people, and now she&amp;acute;s&amp;nbsp; upset that queer people and their allies don&amp;acute;t want people like her in their space. Please.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I just&amp;nbsp; wanna make a disclaimer, that no I don&amp;acute;t think there is a conspiracy where republicans are trying to send out one of their own to destroy one of the few anti-censorship sites we have for fandom.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I do think that she was just one individual doing this out of her own volation, and someone who is overconfident, incompetent and naive at best.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;gtx-trans-icon&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=18033&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  343.  <description>&amp;nbsp;I just remembered that we&amp;acute;re at the start of the Festas Populares Season! Depending on which City you&amp;acute;re either celebrating S&amp;atilde;o Jo&amp;atilde;o (Saint John) S&amp;atilde;o Pedro (Saint Peter) and Santo Ant&amp;oacute;nio (Saint Anthony)&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;People have start decorating their windows and balconies and the cities has decorative lights. Yesterday my city decided to make an even out of it, celebrating the opening of the lights.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I also had the opportuniy to eat out at an a gastronomy fair, I ate some bifananas (its basically a bread bun with pork myth and some sauce) it was delecious, havent had the joy of eating this in ages.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;However it has been very windy today, not a very pleasant day for the beach, have you see how thin our sands are? Not my idea of fun.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=17683&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  353.  <title>Visited A Medieval Fair</title>
  354.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/17615.html</link>
  355.  <description>&amp;nbsp;Last Weekend I had the Opportunity to visit a Medieval Fair, it in a local fort.&amp;nbsp; Tehre lvie reanctement (I got to see sword fighting), live medieval music among other things.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I Even got to See Birds fo Prey, and visit some of the stalls.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AJFCJaWxsSOILnmVPuPp0AQC77WY7-rNPMmdrmF8RufveZy0JOfoLA2GGrc0OoAe7Qk3hFJDGOOoDMRe5cuxLbumCL1cTYmc9N0u8VUOEoMB1d-VZVUGHOru=w2400&quot; alt=&quot;an eaagle&quot; width=&quot;400&quot; height=&quot;180&quot; /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AJFCJaVv0t7iG1689pqLhgw8HBznf8GvzoQwp3HLtbI10zYBO6ZeLg-kf-nzOXx2n0P29mtiGvAAT2HPxP6keZP0WSOqmQvalGchNRLxdwTa4J01tsnpnnv7=w2400&quot; alt=&quot;a falcon&quot; width=&quot;400&quot; height=&quot;180&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;I also saw ducks, in another part of town with a dozen of pigeons all inside a cage.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I do wish I could&amp;acute;ve gotten there early, but something came up. Oh well maybe next time. This Summer there are gonna be plenty of Similar events, there&amp;acute;s this one, where that is themed after ancient Romans and Celts in a historical, site I plan to go next month.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=17615&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>

  366.  <title>I´m back in my Weeboo Era</title>
  367.  <link>https://ghastlym.dreamwidth.org/17245.html</link>
  368.  <description>&amp;nbsp;God I&amp;acute;ve missed this, I&amp;acute;ve started revisiting certain 90s/2000s classics like Nightwalker and maybe might plan to rewatch Utena or even trinity blood.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So much so I decided to started working on one of my site library entires that I&amp;acute;ve been procrastinating for a while.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;And boy is Nightwalker: Midnight Detective fun, you have all this vampire noir goodness,with a cool soundtack nice dark gritty atmosphere.&lt;br /&gt;I think it may have influence my sense an aesthetic. See i always wanted to wear a red ribbon on my shirt, and maybe have introduced to me to the visual kei genre through Buck-Tick, to what ocs i like to make&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I don&amp;acute;t think i ever been this excited for a project in months. I&amp;acute;ve been slowy rewatching the episodes, to make sure I get my information correct.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I also finally found all the screentshots for the game it was based from so i do have some vague idea of how it ends, of course there a little hmm, it&amp;acute;s a hentai so I&amp;acute;m probably not gonna show the more NSFW screenshots because then I would have to give my site an 18+ rating.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Speaking of which, I&amp;acute;m actually debating about it, while most of my site is sfw and has been rated as such, I&amp;acute;m pondering it would be better to put an mature rating maybe? Not because I plan on put very very explicit content, but i wanna talk about certain works that have some mature themes. And maybe it would be better i I just add it to the entire site.?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;or should I do what another webmaster has being doing having a sfw section of the site while have warning for a more dark sectionof the site?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I dunno, see I&amp;acute;m more kinda going with the flow, I didnt exactly plan for all the content, i just added the rating that i felt it fit the site at the time.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Or maybe I should put a heads up on my profile explaining the context of the change? Specially when i can&amp;acute;t control who follow/or links to my site?&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Decision, decisions.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br type=&quot;_moz&quot; /&gt;&lt;div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;gtx-trans-icon&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/commentcount?user=ghastlym&amp;ditemid=17245&quot; width=&quot;30&quot; height=&quot;12&quot; alt=&quot;comment count unavailable&quot; style=&quot;vertical-align: middle;&quot;/&gt; comments</description>
