  1. It took me a couple tries to get into Disco Elysium, but once gave it a proper go and put in enough time to see the plot start to develop, it became one of my favorites. It really is excellent. There's a lot more depth to the characters and story than I picked up on initially. So many plot threads pay off in interesting ways. It is a slow burn, and you have to be in the mood for a game that's mostly dialogue, but if you're down for that kind of experience it's one of the best out there.
  2. huge update for Baba is You with lots of extra levels and outtakes, plus full release of the level editor
  3. I love Fluxion. Really enjoying this
  4. I love this, I think it's my favorite of all of his albums. The balance of rhythm and atmosphere is perfect
  5. files on phone -> headphones is my favorite these days (though I really love listening in the car too). A lot of days I'll put headphones on immediately when I get out of bed, it makes that first hour of morning so much better
  6. obviously most people lack the analytical listening skills to properly interpret the intricacies of FM bleep-bloops
  7. Demdike Stare - Wonderland I just love this album so much. One of my favorites of the past several years. Those rich rough gritty beats soothe my soul
  8. underrated track, one of my favorites on the album. absolutely perfect metallic percussion sounds
  9. yeah I was 4 at the time myself so this is all retrospective for me. though coincidentally Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld was one of the first electronic albums I ever heard and kickstarted my interest in the genre (even though I didn't hear it til around '99) great picks everyone, I had never heard x-101 but I'm glad I checked it out, good shit
  10. I've been in a Biosphere mood lately and I think Microgravity might be my favorite of that year, it's such a beautiful album. It's either that or Lego Feet for me. But there's so many other classics too - FSOL, The Orb, Plaid, LFO, Nightmares on Wax... What do you think?
  11. I love the setting and lore of it, though I'm finding some parts kind of frustrating Outer Wilds is fantastic though, such incredibly creative locations and ideas. Some of the most interesting experiences I've ever had in a game.
  12. My mom would play Bob Marley and Elton John all the time, the first song I remember loving at a really young age was probably this
  13. that part of sch.mefd 2 from 3:30 to 4:00 where it goes "deet doot" every few bars is so sick
  14. ecol4 is definitely my favorite track on the album at this point. beautiful sound design with all sorts of lovely stuff going on in the high frequencies offset by that smooth deep bass. it morphs in so many fascinating ways throughout its duration. and it's got that cool, airy, emotionally ambiguous vibe I just love.
  15. damn this sounds great! The vibert mix seems real juicy too, can't wait to hear the full tracks. they've been on a nice run with mixes lately, the sophie and anodyne ones were both great and sonically so different. Love to see the gold mine of the ae remix collection continue to grow
  16. I like this comparison, love both of these tracks! I always enjoy when they do something really stripped down and embrace the subtlety. I was listening to MoT the other morning and was reminded how much I love nearly every second of it.
  17. I've been so busy lately that I haven't had much time for new games, but I still fire up Slay the Spire and do a couple runs regularly. Maybe my most played game ever at this point? I have like 700 hours in it. Somehow still hasn't gotten old. Also played through the first bit of The Witness with my Geometry students to introduce a lesson on inductive reasoning, good fun.
  18. A sugar-free lemon mint Ricola cough drop. Fucking perfect. Love these things.
  19. I've used Plex a lot for playing the music stored on my PC through other devices (TV connected to living room sound system, phone + headphones, etc), and yeah I like it, works well for the most part. Good for movies and shows too, although I don't store those digitally as much these days. I still use folders of mp3s/flacs organized by Artist and Album, played in Winamp. Same setup I've been using since the early 00's lol. Only difference is that I've replaced a lot of those old low-bitrate mp3s I ripped 20 years ago with lossless versions.
  20. damn, cheers yall, this is all really excellent stuff.
  21. damnit RIP!! Norm always made me happy. He had such a unique comic voice, no one else quite like him
