unrelated: I cannot stop listening to I Just Want To (Dance) by Ninja Sex Party???????
it’s such a well-crafted song

it’s the best. it is seriously the best

also I am for any game that emotionally affects you by surprising you with real world logic
(tiny spoiler for Lone Survivor under the cut)

seriously tho I am not into horror in terms of jump scares—the anticipation of jump scares really ramps up my anxiety and in general artificial horror elements are the ones that scare me more at that second, despite their lack of integrity pissing me off a lot—but I really enjoy more subtle and/or well-crafted horror stories (even those that may even include jump scares, because tropes are not bad—lone survivor has a few, for instance) because there is not another genre that can do that specific thing to yr brain and it’s so unbelievably cool
I in general advocate shit like playing lone survivor and reading house of leaves and in general supporting good horror that doesn’t insult its audience

if you are at all into indie games and even if you usually aren’t into horror GET LONE SURVIVOR. it’s free right now on PS+ or you could probably get it in a steam sale
oh my god the atmosphere’s great and the gameplay/controls are super fluid and it lives up to its survival horror name and the music is fucking phenomenal and the graphics suit it perfectly and goddamn
obviously, for the game, tw for blood, gore, gun violence, mild body horror, anxiety inducing atmosphere (although personally post-playing I’m
more calm, unlike mainstream horror titles), stuff in that vein. no sexual violence so far though, so that’s a plus? I’ll update when I’ve finished the game.
(and hey: if you won’t take my recommendation, the guy who made vvvvvv and super hexagon highly recommends it as well, sooooooo…)

I saw a post recently talking about doing an album of covers of songs by artists who have done terrible things, in a sort of “separate the art from them” kind of way?
and while that’s obviously problematic I kinda get what they were trying to go for, so I gotta make it clear that the other issues there are
1. the art was still made by a problematic artist, and
2. legally, even with free covers you have to pay the original artist, so you end up giving them money
so. don’t do that. I know it sucks “losing” music that is well-made and incredibly important to you personally, etc. but given what has happened to victims yr comfort is a small price to pay

god I had the worst conversation a while back where my grandmother—despite evidence to the contrary—continually insisted with the most poisonous disdain that pole dancing is “just stripping” and wouldn’t even accept that it took skill to do
the same conversation where she proudly told my sister the story about why she doesn’t smoke, because her dad told her that “the cheapest thing [he] ever saw was a woman in a bar, smoking a cigarette”.
sigh

on rare occasions nowadays I eat dinner alone at sit-down restaurants and I’m so glad that commonly available handheld internet devices exist
eating alone would be suuuuper awkward otherwise

I don’t normally post about fandoms but uh
