Learned about defining functions and packages in #CommonLisp today. Reminds me of C quite a bit.
On a related note: calling the asterisks delineating special variables "earmuffs" is so dang cute!
It's official- the studio I work for is shuttering in a month.
If you need or know someone who needs either:
- A Unity/C# Generalist
- A programmer with a background in music / audio technology
- An Art Hacker with gallery / museum experience
for paid work, I would deeply appreciate the connection
Boosts much appreciated.
I also wrote a TTRPG!
KIN has a very flexible system that encourages innovation and homebrew. And it comes with a pre-made short adventure, too!
It's the same game played by the protagonists of my novel NON-PLAYER CHARACTER and was created to tie-in with the novel, but both the novel and the TTRPG stand alone.
Please do check it out!
Hello! My books have all been re-released with my correct name in ebook and paperback!
💀 BOOKS AND BONE is a surprisingly sweet story of necromancy and secret libraries with ace romance.
🐉 NON-PLAYER CHARACTER is a cosy queer portal fantasy with an autistic protagonist where a TTRPG group are pulled into the world of their game.
🎲 KIN is a TTRPG with flexible, classless character creation and three gameplay modes. And it ties in with NON-PLAYER CHARACTER!
The Museum of Endangered Sounds by Brendan Chilcutt
"I launched the site in January of 2012 as a way to preserve the sounds made famous by my favorite old technologies and electronics equipment. For instance, the textured rattle and hum of a VHS tape being sucked into the womb of a 1983 JVC HR-7100 VCR. As you probably know, it's a wonderfully complex sound, subtle yet unfiltered. But, as streaming playback becomes more common in the US, and as people in developing nations like Canada and the UK get brought up to DVD players, it's likely that the world will have seen and heard the last of older machines like the HR-7100. And as new products come to market, we stand to lose much more than VCRs.
Imagine a world where we never again hear the symphonic startup of a Windows 95 machine. Imagine generations of children unacquainted with the chattering of angels lodged deep within the recesses of an old cathode ray tube TV. And when the entire world has adopted devices with sleek, silent touch interfaces, where will we turn for the sound of fingers striking QWERTY keypads? Tell me that. And tell me: Who will play my GameBoy when I'm gone?"
"I’m unable to resist a good story. I viewed myself not as a pioneer, but as a journalist."
