Love me a cam rant about something I'd never think about otherwise. I somehow never quite realized it, but yeah, bacon used to be a huge thing everywhere, huh. And then it stopped all of a sudden. I'll still go for bacon on anything I can get it on, though.~

But anyways, more importantly @ the article Koba posted:
computerized toilets that cover the sound of your farts

I can't find them "covering your farts" but I did find this article. Toto (who you'll know from that one VIP3 stage) is mentioned here, also local legend Jun Togawa, peep below

Hmm, a toilet that washes your ass after you're done pooping does sound really useful. :slow:

"why wasn't this done already? This was supposed to be done a year ago!"

"If you'll refer to these records, you will see that I was never notified it needed doing."

Me, repeatedly, over the last couple months, in response to why stuff at work hasn't been getting done. (It's not work I can do pre-emptively since once my work gets done we can no longer bill on those items so I must be notified once my step is ready)

Other than that there was Bokobono/Wareng/whatever he's called who got on my nerves but might still be in the IRC? IDK if he actually left so much as didn't go on the forums anymore

Blinx who just vanished and his name is Blinx so good luck finding him

Ocard vanished and he was my boy and also I lost his picture that he sent me. He knows the one. Or maybe he doesn't.

And of course a bunch of other people later but these are some of the first ones I remember and also I'm forgetting some people both from laziness and unintentionally. If I tried to name everyone I ever actually talked to and liked I'd forget someone and offend them.
i miss wareng and ocard so hard i cry
for those who don't know, ocard is actually the president of Argentina now

yes, he knows which one

I felt like it was high time to practice coloring on my art so I'm preparing a trace of a Pangya bara pic (Bob/Azer/Daisuke) that I found on Pixiv to study said pic to practice coloring and shading, and take notes on its detail work and how it stylizes anatomy (though some of its anatomy is jank, I'm not a fan of how Uncle Bob's arms are set up).

I'll make sure to do more studying like this alongside copying a whole pic or landscape with only referencing to go by and standard attempts at making original art. I'll make sure not to keep it to only bulky men, I do want to be able to draw a lot of things, even cute women, believe it or not (just not in porn). Need to practice pixel art too.

I cannot afford to stagnate... At least just so I can keep making myself happy with relaxing art of my favorite characters (my friends' and copyrighted), and some original ones that I feel like designing, maybe landscapes and machinery designs too!

I may be weird for this (the good kind of weird), but I find detail work in clothing and inorganic designs (machinery and architecture and such) is really relaxing, I kind of just become absorbed in it. I guess it comes natural as a wannabe macro/micro artist, and also slight mecha fan. (need to finish Gundam First already, rewatch Eva and Megas XLR and start stuff like King Gainer, TTGL, VOTOMS, Turn A, Witch from Mercury, Nadesico, Getter Robo, p much 95% of the SRW catalog haha. Virtual-On and Front Mission 4lyfe. Wanna get into BattleTech, Assault Suits and Armored Core too.)

I once drew Luna's dress in Lunar Silver Star Story and I was just in a trance, it was mesmerizing. I need to get more clothing reference and inspiration ideas, especially super clunky, blocky shoes, I love that in a character.

Something like this, y'know?

Or like how early Digimon anime do it. Not so much Sonic.

real talk i need to update my itaku account and maybe pixiv and maybe make a bara-addiction account but
1) i hate how itaku makes your shit super public unless you disable uploading to the public gallery. legit feel bad making people look at my garbage work
2) pixiv is probably gonna be even worse, it got really weird towards non-consensual guro of all things
3) i dont imagine bara-addiction has much money being donated

i'd use deviantart but
1) it's too mainstream to post my horny art
2) there are some fucking weirdos on there. i guess there's also the ai thing but that's the least of my concerns i'd be doing art regardless of the machines taking over
but 3) i can only really talk to my friend ronan (leomon32) on there and on twitter :pensive:

anyway im so fucking tired of furries going "yeah i'll use a proprietary chat program to post and archive my art that's very normal and not limiting in the slightest and not a total garbage way to archive shit. I'm Technologically Literate. just do the equivalent of dumping scrap notes on discord dms lol xd" or just throwing them into the twitter abyss where they'll be eaten up by twitter's inability to retrieve super old results most of the time.

just make a neocities account if they allow porn and make a whole ass gallery site like sunaho tobe's or like. old japanese furry personal sites

26 is too young to be worrying about that. Heck, I've got another thirteen years on you and change, and I still don't feel old yet.

Despite being your age, I have like five years before i can have my "I've been on talkhaus for half my life" moment

But also I actually want to be older so I can look like a cute dad because I'm a brain damaged little gay with severe father issues and I don't want to be a cute femboy twink or generic lean muscle pretty boy like every normie gay wants to apparently (no offense to people who are like that but are also absurdly cringy specifically, you are the ones I actually respect)

Anyway don't see growing old as a universally bad thing, you still have quite a lot of your life to go before you reach heavy frailness and have to be taken care of. If you can, own your age while letting yourself still be childish enough to have fun when possible. Age is mostly a number, so just focus on having fun and surviving this kind of shitpost-y dystopia we're in.

there was a spider on my brother's car yesterday and i tried to get it out with a bit of receipt paper while we were out of town, but it was so scared it was hopping about and it fucked off back into the deepest recesses of his shitty like, peugeot or something. i feel so bad for it...

it's supremely funny because just a few days ago i was fucking terrified of a spider roughly about the same size in the bathroom at like 5 am and it was like not even close to me like this one was, it was next to the pipe that is where the bidet used to be, near the pile of clothes we just have there now

forgive me my one bedroom apartment looks like chris-chan's old house because we're all fucking tired and aging here and it's way too small for a family because we're somewhat low middle class, and im very embarrassed to talk about or show my house ever

anyway i think im just weirdly more emotional at like the middle of the night because not having the proper rest and that's probably why i've been more obnoxiously aggro and bitchy recently, my insomnia is acting up so, so bad, im developing satoshi tajiri style sleeping now (12 hour sleep 24 hour awake), i have sleeping pills but i can't keep taking them all the time

Trying to find podcasts to listen to while playing TotK and I randomly put on an episode that came out today of Slightly Something Else, a podcast with Yahtzee Croshaw of Zero Punctuation as well as some other guy who is there for Yahtzee to have someone to talk to. (It’s not that great of a podcast, Yahtz had better rapport with Gabe in Let’s Drown Out)

They’re talking about horses in video games sucking, and about 9.5 minutes in when the idea of “is Yoshi a horse” was brought up, Yahtzee says he watched a few let’s plays by a dude whose second language was English and he persistently referred to Yoshi as a horse.

Obviously referring to
