Here we go! Ante 8/8, final round!

Nope :(
250,000 points in the final round though! A minor victory…

Yup. This game's going to be a problem. 6.3 hours played so far. I got it yesterday afternoon…

My entire life, I have refused to make any Top 10 lists of my favorite songs. But you know what? Screw it. It's finally time. This makes the cut!

Probably the best and worst thing about is that it runs like a dream on OG at 5W, giving you about ~7 hours of playing time while you should be sleeping... This might be the new "Vampire Survivors" for me. NEVER expected a poker game to be so addicting.

Balatro is described as "the definitive poker roguelike experience" and that's certainly the first time I've heard all those words used together in a sentence.

Oh no.

DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME.
30 minutes in and I already feel like it's going to own my entire weekend.

To every band in recorded music history that has faded a song out during a guitar solo: you messed up!

Hey kids, if you want to hear how great recorded music used to sound before the loudness wars won and everything got compressed to shit, listen to an early Eagles album like "One Of These Nights."

I mean, DAMN, it sounds so rich. So balanced. There's so much space between the instruments. The harmonies are electrifying. It sounds like they're playing together right there in front of you. Incredible.

This has been another installment of Gen X Jason Yells At Cloud. Thank you and goodnight.

@solarisfire Streamed? Probably Tidal or Apple Music

@skoobasteeve YES! One of my favorite albums on vinyl. I don't know if the magic was down to recording techniques, mixing, or recording to tape. Probably some combination of all three.

@godofbiscuits @ewen That... is an interesting observation. I'm going to be aware of it now when I'm watching and listening.

I haven't explicitly noticed that, but I have noticed the trend toward lightning quick cuts in TV and movies, to the point where no shot lasts more than 2 or 3 seconds. If it lasts longer that, it's probably an intentional one-shot for an action sequence.

Short-attention-span theater.

@doctorLURK Oh that is a terrific shout right there.

@johnglass @solarisfire Huh, I didn't realize they had a streaming service. I always thought it was just a storefront.

So is the current Linux Youtube meta making videos on Kaspersky that feel like undisclosed ads

@BrodieOnLinux If so, gross.

It's been almost 8 years... Time to lose myself in once again. It's so weird how this game always feels like coming home.

(If anyone knows any great modding guides for , I'll gladly take them.)

@Batcastle The atmosphere is just sublime.

@cobratbq Ha! And I'm playing it again because I stumbled across this video essay and felt downright compelled to fire it up after watching. Looks like it's contagious.

@boo_ OK! That's an excellent lead. Thanks for sharing it with me.

Random insight into my new(ish) addiction: here’s my pull list for June. I’m hoping to keep this under 10 books per month FOREVER because I’m already behind on my reading 😬

@Stretch882 The TPs are a pretty good and affordable approach to catch up. (I think it's $10 for 5 collected issues?)

Time, though, that's a different beast altogether!

killyourfm,
@killyourfm@layer8.space avatar

@Stretch882 HAHA no problem! The 1-5 TPB is actually where I started out of curiosity. Fell in love with it so hard that I went out and bought the singles too, and added it to my pull list.

Enjoy!

Saturday happiness is prepping some dried fruit and blasting a PlexAmp playlist that’s nothing but Rancid, Swingin’ Utters, and Ducky Boys.

Sliced strawberries arranged on a dehydrator tray.

@earl No problem! They’re decidedly more on the “dirty punk rock” side and pretty under the radar, but I’ve always loved ‘em. Start with the album “Dark Days.”
