Hello sticky post 1:

I'm posting unlisted as default! I don't mind if anyone sees my posts but I don't want to make people see them.

I generally like to talk to people in small interactions over time.

I like: zombies, robots, other robots, tabletop games, things related to drawing programs, and trying things i'm bad at!!

Don't like: fandom police, money only/paywall fandom

Currently: l4d2, blender, ???

these video game people don't stick around and be my friend forever after a game.

I like that. I don't want to be friends with everyone.

BUT if I see them again and again I will start to like them as some nice distant person who shares a hobby.

and compared to my very specific fandom experience this happens a lot more often.

idk what the point of this is actually.

I think I'm having a lot of complicated feelings about how I expected interacting with fandom to be VS how many like?? idk I expected to quit fandom and just play video games and have a bunch of jerks at video games..

but overall just running l4d maps is way more rewarding that uploading fanart.

I play with my dad and friend a LOT. and often we will encounter someone who hasn't seen something cool, or they've not completed a difficult map yet.

It's really fun to hear them comment on whatever's going on.

but we died and started that section over.. I stood in some spit and fell over to start typing that I figured out what else to do. (take the hidden explosive ammo nearby and shoot it)

So we shot the gnome, got a secret door. (the best one on the map) everyone was like !!!!!!

Finished the map, had a good time.

we did the map again a few days later or w/e and could show someone new.

Idk I love people's reactions to stuff like that. : )))

We were playing l4d the other day, the addon map with the gnomes with secrets. There was 1 gnome we never got. So we told the other player (stranger) we were going to try to figure it out a bit.

We gave up p quick to not inconvenience him but he just WOULD NOT leave it alone. Eventually he figured it out. It was amazing he found it. But we were also on a modded server so we couldn't activate the thing. (seems like on some servers it takes more force than a scoped rifle bullet to knock over)

one of my fanart posts on my old tumblr just got to over 1k notes. It was kind of an outlier the entire time.

I'm kind of proud of it but idk all the way how to feel about it.

computer parts are so hard to decide on.

My mini itx is nice! I like it!! If I had a current amd apu I would probably be perfectly satisfied. but this is an old a10.

I need to assemble another computer (because my friend gave me the parts!) from around the same time, but with a cpu. It needs a real gpu, cooler, ssd.

I do want to make a new computer in a year or two?? So a gpu that can come along would be nice : /

I wonder if I can put that thing in my ~2004 computer. ???? I think it might be from 2009??

oh cats, actually, my friend also sent me a VERY old gpu that "doesn't work." And that thing is AS LONG as my entire mini itx computer (which is my main computer). I said it looked like a car part. There's a PIPE in it ???

and WORSE, I pretty much have TWO computers that don't have a GPU so I could put it in either one.

I need to get a dedicated gpu if I keep doing this stuff : (

I think the best price/card specs has an amount of vram equal to my system ram though @_@

having to render things in blender ALL the time to find out what they look like is the perfect workflow for me if only I wasn't between fandoms so I had sth to read while waiting. : ((( That's how I draw too. 5 min work / 20 min read.

I nominated some rairpairs? for chocolate box, but was too afraid to sign up at the last minute.

Someone else signed up with 3 of the fandoms/ships I nominated so I should really make them a treat. they even want fanart :' )

A fandom opinion: I am SO absurdly sad that left 4 dead lj anon kinkmeme got deleted.

Surprised pikachu face and everything. What did I expect to see happen to any community on lj.

I don't even know if I'd still enjoy whatever was there at this point, But !! It's all gone : I

it was harder to install this time bc I'm like SUPER dumb but steam for linux had it which is just ???? fine i guess.

I have probably? 3 copies of wine again and LAST TIME I had 4? different kritas so like.. idk. at least I know what steam is from the start vs ppa pip flatpak snap ???

I've had ONE conversation with someone else learning blender and now I'm all into it again. I hope it sticks this time.

learning to make donuts in blender again!!
