Pinned toot

Time for new !

I'm Jordi. expat living in , . I can say expat instead of immigrant 'cause I've had a super-sheltered and comfortable life. Nothing dreadful has ever happened to me.

I like , , , , and old because I'm old (not that old).

I also do software stuff because of course.

I work on assessments and , which I want to call cause we need that word again!

I can't believe I've been long enough in Masto to already start missing people who are no longer around.

My work is again for a . The position is for work on and .

We work with both government and private organisations to map out ecological data like water and indices, bringing together satellite data and other sources.

If this sounds interesting, let me know!

I'm a semi-private about where I work exactly, so I'll message you the details.

( and only, sorry, no remote.)

"There was Hyper Fighting, New Challengers, and Champion Edition. Can't they just call it three?"

"We don't talk about that Miyao."

making me literally lol out loud over

So that toot about being on brand and creating content... did people really internalise that or was everyone just being ironic?

People honestly think they have a brand?

Battle Angel Alita was pretty good, wasn't it? I feel like I got my money's worth out of that.

I think I know one reason I'm enjoying the show so far. It's kind of an inversion of the manic pixie dream girl. Not a gender inversion, I mean (what's that called? manic pixie dream guy?) but rather an inversion of a character. She's completely withdrawn and isolated and it's up to the boy to do all of the emotional powerlifting.

I mean, the translation took the time to refer to the Turbo Grafx 16 instead of the PC Engine, so why not also call the main villain M. Bison and not Vega?

Awwwwwww, episode 3 of made me tear up. This is such a cute show. I really feel that nonverbal girl.

I'm finding a few off things about the English dub, though. They keep calling M. Bison Vega. I know about the name switcheroo, but it still feels odd Also, I keep getting confused about how they kept the Japanese habit for even kids to address each other by their surnames. Both of these things I would have changed for English.

So back in the 90s, if you’d asked me, “which movie will spawn a whole genre”, I would not have guessed Groundhog Day.

I'm a little unhappy with , because it requires signing up to view anything. I'm okay with that being a default, but I'd like to opt out and expose my stuff to the world.

Was it always like this? Or did Ravelry grow big and evil like all the other social networks?

Awwwww, I just watched the second episode of . That was so cute! Also, I am enjoying the English dub a lot better than the Japanese original.

I am relating a lot to Akira Ono. I like how she's nonverbal and just communicates with facial expression, grunts and violence.

When I read Link To The Past materials now, it looks so weird. Why is Link the protagonist and not Zelda? Why is he rescuing maidens instead of lords? Why is Zelda herself offscreen for almost the whole game even though she's in the title?

I'm not being a jerk intentionally. I've honestly have gotten completely used to playing as Zelda and by now it feels more natural.

I've been home alone for a week. My sense of shame has completely vanished. I am now drinking milk out of the bag like a troglodyte.

I'm going to try to track down the English dub. I could only find at first a fansub and I don't like fan translators as much. They do certain things that seem amateurish to me, like inserting translator's notes in subtitles.

C'mon, people, that's not good .

I like the protagonist, Akira Ono. She's nonverbal and arcade games seem to be her SI. Kind of endearing.

(Yes, she's the protagonist, just like Sherlock Holmes is the protagonist even if we hear the story from Watson's point of view.)

I want cat ear headphones but I want quality headphones... all the cat ear headphones I see in stores I can tell are terrible just looking at them.

Can't sacrifice quality for fashion!
