In Topic: Japan's top 50 vgm of all time

Youtube algos gave me these guys called ABSOLUTE CASTAWAY (Nakae Mitsuki, Haruka Shimotsuki, and other amazing friends). Now I want to buy aaaaaall their CDs. Except for some baffling reason, the CD sales are mainly through a convention in Japan I will never go to. I spotted a few of their CDs on Amazon.jp... but I'm too lazy to shop for them myself.

 

I hate shopping. Can I hand somebody $100 to do it for me?

 

 

I mean listen to this, then this and this, and tell me you don't wanna buy ALL their CDs too.

Funny coming back two years to this...

 

Some of us got Dopple a hammer and now we get to see an eldritch horror that sometimes resembles code. 

 

Joke's on Tahu. I program for a living now.

 

 

So this post is a little bit funnier. I've had a hectic last month prepping for my first job hop. It was horrible, but I did it. Well, I say it was horrible, but it overall took less effort than one might expect, being that I got snatched by the first company I interviewed at. Totally undeserved "Front-end Engineer" title, here we come. :thonking:

 

Learning some JavaScript and bamboozling your way into a well-paying job is a pretty solid backup plan if you need one

 

Moral of the story: ignore haters like TAHU

A Proposition will be back in order for a few chapters, after which it will likely spin out again. I swear I've been tempted to hire consultancy services or something, but then I think about the idea of hiring somebody to read my fanfiction, and it sounds stupid.

 

There's something that surprised me, though: people out there waited the one and a half years for me to update that bucket of molasses. People were still hanging around for that long!? Then again -- I'm still around, too, so I guess I have nothing to say. As for why the story became difficult... well, there were a number of reasons. Work being the obvious dampener.

 

I try not to let work be an excuse for less productivity. Try. I had moderate success for about two years. One year and a half, I did nearly nothing except code. Almost every day, I spent my eight hours at work, usually coding, came home, coded till midnight. Food and hygiene somewhere in there. Repeat. Weekends, vacation days, great, it's time to work on my coding projects. I thought I might even become like the president of Vanillaware who allegedly eats bread every meal. Man. Talk about burn hard, burn fast, soon maybe, burn out. On the latter, I saw the signs: I started coming home to jam mythic dungeons with my friends instead. (I have unsubscribed from WoW for now.) Funnily, I still remember being new at programming and everybody laughing at me. :-) Now I'm a mid-level dev having a mid-career crisis.

 

UUgh I think I just needed to say all that. I don't really have anything interesting to share. If I'm not coding, I'll try to do A Proposition. Try.

Kokia has an angelic voice. This is one of my favourites from her.
