  31. </p>
  32. <p>It’s me, Ruby.</p>
  33. <p>I’ve been busy making major life decisions and such!</p>
  34. <p>
  35.  I also got cool shit in the mail and will hopefully have more cool
  36.  shit to show off before too long, the other cool stuff is coming from
  37.  Japan via economy shipping so who knows! Lol!
  38. </p>
  39. <p>
  40.   ANYWAY
  41. </p>
  42. <p>
  43.  I’ve decided I’m going to be going to college to become a computer
  44.  engineer, I am very excited to learn and hope I can become the
  45.  ultimate computer genius. I’m not entirely sure what a computer
  46.  engineer does or anything but apparently I’ll get to learn all about
  47.  how computers and electronics work, which is very practical to me and
  48.  the money should be good if I can do a good job, and I will. I’ll be
  49.  attending college for the first couple of years to do prerequisites
  50.  and then transferring to university for the computer engineering
  51.  program, I also hope to take Japanese language as an elective because
  52.  my main goal is to move to Japan and be in the field there and I
  53.  suppose it will look flashy to employers if I have solid language
  54.  credits.
  55. </p>
  56. <p>
  57.  Speaking of learning Japanese, I have acquired many Japanese learning
  58.  textbooks because while Duolingo is fun and all I’ve realized it is
  59.  quite stifling my learning for the most part, just a few hours of
  60.  reading a language course textbook made a lot of things make so much
  61.  sense! Turns out, studying grammar directly is a great way for me to
  62.  learn a language! So yeah I’ve been studying a lot more the last few
  63.  days mainly as that’s when I started getting the books and I’m already
  64.  feeling more confident that I’ll actualize my goals!
  65. </p>
  66. <p> Speaking of reading!</p>
  67. <p>
  68.  I read Dune! The first novel I’ve read in like 15 years! Yes the last
  69.  novel I read was when I was like 10 years old, silly, and yeah I read
  70.  a 900 page dense sci-fi novel, and I loved it! It gave me confidence
  71.  to pursue the above goals of reading Japanese language learning
  72.  textbooks, seriously after reading Dune I feel like I can read
  73.  anything!
  74. </p>
  75. <p>
  76.  I’m on to reading Dune messiah when I can as I’m mainly reading the
  77.  grammar and kanji textbooks and such lately.
  78. </p>
  79. <p>Time Skip</p>
  80. <p>
  81.  It’s been a few weeks since I started writing this blog post as of
  82.  this line, and I have a bunch of cool CDs now! I’ve been collecting
  83.  Japanese releases that have the obi, and there’s a picture of most of
  84.  the ones I have so far at the top of this post, I have more coming
  85.  lol.
  86. </p>
  87. <p>
  88.  I’ve been listening to a lot more music now because of this which is
  89.  nice, I sort of stopped listening to music for the most part except on
  90.  rare occasions which sucked, I love music, but now I listen to whole
  91.  albums at once pretty much daily which is really nice, right now I’m
  92.  listening to III by Masanori Nozawa, Masanori Nozawa is an ambient
  93.  producer and DJ from Utsunomiya, Japan. He also runs the label Medium,
  94.  I have a few releases from the label now and they’re all very nice
  95.  ambient works, highly recommend!
  96. </p>
  97. <p>
  98.  I’m going to be registering for classes very soon, and then starting
  99.  school in May supposedly, looking forward to it, a bit nervous because
  100.  it’s going to be a big change but everyone in my life is rooting for
  101.  me so that’s nice.
  102. </p>
  103. <p>
  104.  Last night I had a computer disaster, I made the silly decision of
  105.  trying to get my PC equipped to upgrade to windows 11, and it did not
  106.  end well, I messed up the setup and when I changed my BIOS to launch
  107.  with UEFI it made my PC unable to boot, lol, luckily a friend helped
  108.  me they told me how to remove the CMOS battery to reset the BIOS and
  109.  that fixed it, and so I decided to not get windows 11 after that
  110.  dreadful experience and install software that gives me a dock instead,
  111.  we have windows 11 at home! Lol
  112. </p>
  113. <p>

  117.  />
  118. </p>
  119. <p>
  120.  I’ve been working on my new album that releases in September, Hour of
  121.  the Rooster, it’s like 17 tracks now, which is crazy, I’m really
  122.  looking forward to everyone getting to hear it, and plan to do a CD
  123.  release if I can manage it, I’m hoping to get some friends to record
  124.  some stuff for the album just waiting to hear back from everyone,
  125.  they’re gonna listen to the album to see what they wanna add to it.
  126. </p>
  127. <p>
  128.  Speaking of if you’d like to hear the album in its current state,
  129.  email me and I’ll send you a copy! Thanks!
  130. </p>
  131. <p>Anyway hope you have a good rest of your day!</p>

  147. <h2>What a time to be alive</h2>
  148. <h3>It's Friday, I am tired</h3>
  149. <h3>
  150.  2023-01-27
  151. </h3>
  152. <h4>Ruby May Valentine</h4>
  153. <p>
  154. Hello everybody!
  155. </p>
  156. <p>
  157.  <img width="50%;"

  159. alt="a picture of my desk, showcasing my raspberry pi 4 in its new red and black case!"

  161. </p>
  162. <p>
  163.  I am very tired while I’m writing this, I’ve been having problems with
  164.  getting to sleep lately which sucks! For a while it was just, I was
  165.  staying up really late and sleeping during the day but now it’s also
  166.  staying up all night and then not sleeping until the following night,
  167.  sucks!
  168. </p>
  169. <p>
  170.  Other than that things have started to feel normal again now that Pot
  171.  Roast has been back home for a while, I’m still super paranoid about
  172.  him getting out again though which I guess is better than him getting
  173.  out again due to me not worrying about it as much, he’s been doing
  174.  good, he’s caught a few more mice too lol, seems to be a never ending
  175.  supply of mice here, it’s insane.
  176. </p>
  177. <p>
  178.  Indigo is in North Carolina currently but will be back the night of me
  179.  writing this post (2023-01-26) It’s currently nearly 5am and yeah, I
  180.  haven’t slept, I’ve just been “doom scrolling” as people say nowadays,
  181.  which I was doing good with not doing for a few months! I think I’m
  182.  gonna try to write here more often than I have been doing to keep
  183.  myself off twitter especially, I for some reason cannot help but click
  184.  on alarming trending topics and reading horrible, hideous, posts,
  185.  which results in panic and despair, which is not healthy. I’d like to
  186.  just completely delete twitter, but I do enjoy seeing posts from
  187.  friends and my mutuals in Japan that post about video-games and the
  188.  weather there.
  189. </p>
  190. <p>
  191.  I ordered a bunch of CDs last month which have been arriving
  192.  throughout this month, building up a nice disc collection is fun, I’ve
  193.  also been ripping the CDs so I can add them to my raspberry pi 4 based
  194.  media server so I can stream the audio on my various devices, it’s
  195.  cool! I’m my own streaming platform, and with the discs backing it up,
  196.  aside from a major disaster and deep levels of bit rot, no one can
  197.  take the music away from me on a whim like we’ve seen streaming
  198.  platforms do time and time again especially more recently lately, with
  199.  adored media. I’ve pretty much only been listening to stuff I actually
  200.  own now instead of streaming via Apple Music, which has led to a
  201.  deeper appreciation of the music honestly, I had actually mainly been
  202.  listening to Young Thug’s album Punk for about two years now until I
  203.  started getting more discs because it was basically the only album I
  204.  had on disc, I think I still have a copy of Deadmau5’ > Album Title
  205.  Goes Here < from my teen years but it’s buried in a storage bin if so,
  206.  and is certainly missing the majority of the case, (whoops!). I really
  207.  like that album; it’s a shame Joel Zimmerman is a prick.
  208. </p>
  209. <p>
  210.  Speaking of pricks most of the CDs I’ve been buying are Kanye West
  211.  albums, I’ve been a long-time fan but decided hey, with the
  212.  ever-growing amount of horrible shit he’s saying and doing, I don’t
  213.  really want to support him financially in the slightest! So I’ve been
  214.  buying up discs second-hand so as to not directly contribute to his
  215.  ever massive wealth via streaming, and to say the absolute least, I
  216.  miss the old Kanye.
  217. </p>
  218. <p>
  219.  I also got Daft Punk’s “Discovery” on disc, and have more Daft Punk
  220.  discs on the way, I love Daft Punk! My mom introduced me to them as a
  221.  kid and would play their music all the time and I’ve been listening to
  222.  them ever since, a huge inspiration to my sound, I’ve covered a few of
  223.  their songs even, their music means a lot to me so it’s nice to have
  224.  it on disc once again! We actually had A LOT of music on disc
  225.  including Daft Punk but thanks to fucking iTunes and Apple we don’t
  226.  have that anymore, my mom had ripped all of her music to our computer
  227.  and added it to iTunes and decided hey I guess we don’t need this
  228.  massive amount of discs anymore, and of course later on due to iTunes
  229.  and general computer fuckery, we lost all of that music, a sad tale
  230.  told many times at this point I’m sure, oh the dawn of the mp3.
  231. </p>
  232. <p>
  233.  She’s happy now with her amazon music though, and I don’t blame her,
  234.  the wealth of most of the world’s sonic creation at your fingertips?
  235.  Hard to pass up. I also have Moonface’s “Organ Music Not Vibraphone
  236.  Like I’d Hoped” coming, and additionally “Skullgrid” by Behold… The
  237.  Arctopus, great music overall! I’m hoping I can get a WORKING tape
  238.  player with audio out before too long though because I have a shit ton
  239.  of tapes and I’d like to record their contents and add them to my
  240.  media server, a daunting task but I feel the need to do it. I’ll
  241.  probably end up ordering more discs next month if finances allow, they
  242.  are rather cheap after all, most of the discs mentioned I acquired for
  243.  $10 or less, buying second-hand rules!
  244. </p>
  245. <p>
  246.  I might actually hit up the local used media chain Bookman’s here
  247.  before too long because that’s also a great way to get CDs outside of
  248.  eBay and Discogs, and I might check out new stuff I haven’t heard
  249.  before, or even find stuff I forgot about, I love music.
  250. </p>
  251. <p>
  252.  I’ve also been getting lots of VHS tapes and DVDs which I’ve been
  253.  ripping the DVDs but haven’t gotten around to recording any tapes,
  254.  because you know, you have to let the entire movie play, and that’s a
  255.  long time to not use my computer lol, I have Takeshi Kitano’s
  256.  “Outrage” trilogy on DVD now, as well as Fireworks, and I have
  257.  Sonatine coming in the mail too, I’d like to get Brother, great movie,
  258.  all of his movies are great. Highly recommend.
  259. </p>
  260. <p>
  261.  I’ve been watching a lot of “The Brave Yoshihiko” lately, it’s a
  262.  Dragon Quest parody comedy inspired by Monty Python and The Holy
  263.  Grail, it fucking rules. I highly recommend it, especially if you play
  264.  Dragon Quest games. It’s hilarious even without context though, I love
  265.  it, I’ve basically just been watching it from the beginning to end
  266.  every week at this point, it never gets old!
  267. </p>
  268. <p>
  269.  I also added a shop and page to showcase artists I like the work of on
  270.  the website here, you can access those pages from the home page, give
  271.  it a look!
  272. </p>
  273. <p>
  274.  Also it’s the next morning I took a break from writing this post,
  275.  Indigo just got back from North Carolina last night, glad they’re
  276.  home, it’s very weird when they’re not here, was having a really hard
  277.  time sleeping because of it and still am, once again! I’m planning on
  278.  just staying up all day and pushing through it, I really wish I could
  279.  just retain a normal sleep schedule, it’s hideous to me the habits
  280.  I’ve formed since this dog sitting job I took last year, I’ve been
  281.  staying up later and not sleeping a lot ever since lol, I was having
  282.  trouble sleeping at the peoples house because I always have trouble
  283.  with sleeping in new places and that just snowballed into my once
  284.  again disordered sleeping.
  285. </p>
  286. <p>
  287.  I got a new case for my Raspberry Pi 4, it’s running real cool now
  288.  because of the fan that came with the case, really happy with it,
  289.  looks cool too! The official case they plug is basically a plastic
  290.  coffin for the poor thing so this is a major upgrade, it’s cool that a
  291.  little computer has been doing so much for me, i.e. managing my media,
  292.  I love it! I hope to one day upgrade to a legit server setup though,
  293.  big bulky hardware and all lol.
  294. </p>
  295. <p>
  296.  I also made a new comic, it’s about Pot Roast going on a Dragon Quest
  297.  style adventure, inspired by the TV series The Brave Yoshihiko, which
  298.  is in itself a Dragon Quest parody, it’s listed in the shop for a
  299.  print copy but you can also get a digital copy here:
  300.  <a
  301. href=""
  302.  >
  304.  >. I took the “no budget” concept from The Brave Yoshihiko and sort of
  305.  applied it as an art practice, I will spend as little time drawing the
  306.  comic as possible, so I’m doing quickly, purposefully poorly, and not
  307.  thinking about it too much, drawing like a child basically, it’s
  308.  pretty fun to draw this way, not measuring out anatomy and objects and
  309.  shit, it’s the most fun I’ve had making a comic in really long time,
  310.  it’s going to be an ongoing series and I’m gonna make the next issue
  311.  soon, I think if I can handle it there will be a new issue every
  312.  month, don’t hold me to that though lol, it is however very easy to
  313.  draw this way so I think it’s possible.
  314. </p>
  315. <p>
  316.  Also, I am running a gofundme to pay off some medical debt, dental
  317.  specifically, I basically accepted a ridiculous loan that’s impossible
  318.  to pay off monthly so I’m trying to raise money to pay it in full so I
  319.  can stop wasting money on it, as I do not make very much money,
  320.  ($257/mo is my income lol). If you feel like helping or sharing,
  321.  here’s the link:
  322.  <a
  323. href=""
  324. ></a
  325.  >.
  326. </p>
  327. <p>Anyway, thanks y’all, have a good one!</p>

  342. <title> HAPPY THURSDAY </title>
  344. <description>
  346. <![CDATA[
  348. <p> Happy Thursday! </p>
  349. <video controls width="50%" src=""></video>
  350. <p>
  351. What a week, for me at least!
  352. </p>
  353. <p>
  354. Pot Roast was missing for EIGHT DAYS he got out because we thought he was in the bedroom when he wasn't and the door didn't close all the way when we went outside, what a fucking nightmare!  I've had plenty of horrible experiences including being homeless for two years and going to jail twice!!! but I gotta say my cat missing for a bit over a week was the worst week of my life, I was just absolutely miserable, we finally got him back thanks to my neighbor he was hanging out in her yard, I actually had a hold of him a couple days prior but he escaped again when trying to get him in the cat carrier, luckily last Indigo was home so we drove over there this time and got him in the car and then put him in the carrier, it went very smoothly and now he's doing good, I think he missed us cus he's been all over us since getting back, the first thing he did though when getting back home was look for mice, then he fell asleep for a few hours lol.
  357. </p>
  358. <p>
  359. Now we're being extremely more careful I'm honestly anxious about opening the front and back doors at all now because of this experience but hopefully will get back to being normal soon, I'm just so worried he'll get out again is all, he's a great cat so it really was horrible thinking I might never see him again before we got him home!
  360. <img width="100px" src="" alt="a picture of my orange cat pot roast about to jump down from the dresser">
  361. </p>
  363. <p> In other news </p>
  365. <p>
  366. My friend gave me a raspberry pi 4 for free so I set up a media server on it with plex which has been super convenient, I've been ripping my CDs and DVDs and soon thanks to the same friend gonna be ripping some blu-rays!  I have a few of those two in one things like it has a blu-ray and a dvd and I guess blu-Ray is better so I might as well rip the better version, I actually ended up ordering an orange pi 3 LTS to play around with due to the raspberry pi shortage and more importantly recent behavior from raspberry pi (the company).  If the orange pi 3 LTS goes well I want to get an orange pi 5 and build myself a cyberdeck this year if I can swing it, I think it would be fun!  
  367. </p>
  368. <p>
  369. I think I might set up a pi-hole on the orange pi I do have coming cus network wide ad blocking sounds funny as hell to me I wanna see what the behavior is like for that lol.
  370. The media server is really nice especially because I have it setup for remote access so I can stream my music and whatever other media wherever I'm at, I don't leave the house a ton but sometimes we go on drives and stuff!  I'm currently ripping season four of the twilight zone, I got a good deal on it at bookman's (local used goods store), it's taking forever because it's six fucking discs, I've also been finding old Japanese movies on the internet archive to add cus I thought that would be fun.
  372. <img width="100px" src="" alt="a picture of a raspberry pi single board computer with some flash drives and an external hard drive plugged">
  374. </p>
  375. <p>
  376. I also got some cool stuff in the mail from Japan, Dragon Quest IV collector's set, boxed copy with the inserts of super Mario advance 4, and dragon quest 1 + 2 in box for game boy with all the inserts as well, it's actually the third copy I have of this game but I wanted a boxed copy, my goal is to have all the dragon quest games complete before too long, which I've nearly achieved actually, I'm mostly missing the DS games at this point I'm gonna get the DQ X offline version to fill the DQ X void, I wish a mainline game wasn't a completely online experience but oh well lol.

  388. Also looking forward to getting to the JavaScript side of my online course so I can do slideshows on here for photos since posts like this tend to have a bunch of them.
  389. </p>
  390. <p>
  391. I've also been decorating the house in the style of “maximalism” because my fiancée Indigo likes that stuff, I like it too now though it's fun and very chaotic lol.

  552. <p>We're trying to complete our pokédexes so we've mostly been trading back and forth and we also both decided we're going to build living dexes of this game so we're gonna both play through the entire games again on second accounts lol, a massive undertaking because it took me so damn long to finish the story, we'll start doing that once we fill every entry in our current games.</p>
  553. <hr />
  554. <p>Also cohost just implemented ATOM and RSS, RSS might be being deprecated on their end because of some technical issues with how shares show up in feeds so I recommend using the ATOM backend for now but you can put the link to my profile in your reader and it'll load up with chosts (cohost posts)</p>

  682.  I just made some coffee with my phin in my red travel cup so I'm ready for
  683.  the night, I've also been drinking some beer, it's a Japanese craft beer I'm
  684.  glad I finally found one and that it's actually good, lager with yuzu in it,
  685.  exactly how it sounds! It is quite pricey however for the pack of four it
  686.  comes in, but totally understandable tbh, though I imagine it's incredibly
  687.  cheaper in Japan, which hurts.

  754. looking forward to learning more stuff! Also just obsessed with the idea of
  755. posting things to only the RSS feed, my rosts (RSS Posts), they're amazing to
  756. me.

  760. <p>
  761. I added an XML extension to VS Code but TBH it's sort of useful but also sort of
  762. annoying, emmet code completion for html no longer works within CDATA tags
  763. because the XML extension treats it as some special sort of field so what I've
  764. started doing is just adding the CDATA tags after I'm done marking up the
  765. document
  766. </p>
  768. <p>ALSO,<b> POT ROAST </b> (my cat if you somehow don't already know) is NAKED, he
  769. must've gotten his collar caught on something at some point. I cannot find it
  770. for the life of me, he looks weird now, it's weird to me. Lmao. </p>
  772. <details>
  773. <summary>Also does this work</summary> Is it working? </details>
  775. <p> If that details tag above doesn't work don't blame me, blame your reader!
  776. There's actually not standard for what HTML tags are allowed and which are not,
  777. it's a bit silly to me if we're being honest here, but yeah so it's basically a
  778. free-for-all
  779. that's entirely up to whatever developer built your reader!</p>

  873.       <![CDATA[hello this is a test, I'm seeing if image upload works and also if adding an entire blog post to the feed will work this time!
  875.       edit: just found out about CDATA tags for images and adding html to an xml document so please work omg
  877.       so here's last night's blog post (I hope)
  878. <br> <br>
  879. Hey everyone, hope you're doing well!  
  880. <br> <br>
  881. I started learning how to cross stitch on October 17th of this year and just finished my first big project!  It's King Dragon from Dragon Quest 1 but I made him red (of course).  It's not perfectly accurate to the actual pixel art because of the simple fact I was working on it for like 12 hours straight at a time for nearly three weeks and was losing my fucking mind lol, so I messed up in a few spots, it also did not help I was using this water soluble canvas that was warping like crazy because it would get soft from my sweaty ass hands and then harden up again when I wasn't working on it in weird shapes and stuff so it made it hard to make stitches and count properly, I've since started working on some smaller projects with regular waste canvas which is water soluble but still uses actual threads that you just pull out after soaking it in water instead of the entire canvas being water soluble itself, it works A LOT better than the water soluble stuff so I am liking it quite a lot, I did a little ghost looking Dragon Quest slime on one of my t-shirts with it!  I'm going to be doing some more projects soon but much smaller than the King Dragon one, it took so long, I was so exhausted from it, but it was very fulfilling to finally complete it and now I have a cool shirt!  The shirt actually has a bunch of designs on it and I plan to add more but I've been wanting to decorate more of my other clothes lately since I did such a huge thing on that one and it's already pretty packed with cross stitching lol, I'm planning on doing some of my pants and jeans next! <br>
  882. <br>
  883. I highly recommend cross stitching, it's very fun and affordable!  You can get a lot of embroidery floss for like 60 cents each at a fabric or crafts store and the waste canvas I use is also very cheap, and needles, also cheap!  
  884. <br> <br>
  885. Dwarf Fortress
  886. <br> <br>
  887. I've also been playing a fuck ton of Dwarf Fortress, it's very easy to be playing it and completely lose track of time, I'm not very good at it yet but it's also very complex of a game and very hard lol, my third fortress which is my current one is about 10 years old now (in-game time) and my Duke just died with no heir so we're back to just having a mayor now, each spring (sometimes autumn?) a bunch of goblins come and wreck everything and kill like a third of the population and I haven't had much luck trying to figure out what to do about it, last time they only killed one person but this time they brought a shit ton more people with them and just wrecked shop lol, I'm honestly just hoping this fortress fails on it's own before too long because I want to check out the world in Legends mode which will give me a lot more to write about over here regarding Dwarf Fortress!  You can choose to retire a fortress manually but I just kind of want to see what happens if they fizzle out lol, things are not going well after all!
  888. The population of the fort used to be like 120, now it's diminished to 54 currently.
  889. I highly recommend this game!

I've also been playing a lot of Death Stranding Director's Cut!  It was on sale as an upgrade from the base game on steam ($6 wow!) which I didn't get super far into because I got distracted by other things plus Death Stranding is scary so I can only play so much at a time lol.  Death Stranding is so cool though, it's the first game I've played that's been Directed? Designed? By Hideo Kojima and I love it, it's such a funny game while also being terrifying as well as chill, the music beats that happen during story stuff like when you're walking to the first city you encounter are awesome and very relaxing, the game is really just a roller coaster of feelings to experience, I'm looking forward to getting back to where I was in the base game to experience more of the story, which is mostly why I'm playing it, I saw someone recently write about how the story isn't its strongest part but I really love it honestly.  I'm also going to be playing Metal Gear Solid for game boy soon so looking forward to checking out an older Kojima game!  But yeah highly recommend Death Stranding especially if you're into horror!

  895. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
  896. <br> <br>
  897. I've also been playing a shit ton of Pokémon Scarlet!  It's very fun, I have Scarlet and Violet so my sister has been playing my copy of Violet on her switch, this entry is very fun and I love all the new monster designs, especially the spoilery ones I won't mention here in case you want to play it and be surprised!
  898. The new auto battling mechanic in the open world is also a very nice and very welcomed feature.
  899. I don't have much else to say about the game that isn't full of spoilers, but I'll probably write more about it at some point!

  903. I've added an RSS feed for how many mice Pot Roast has killed, it's currently at 13, and I'm not so sure it'll go any higher because I haven't heard any lately lol, he's very skilled and patrols the house to find them and screams if he can't find any.  Also unfortunately Pot Roast has been diagnosed with FIV which is weird because the shelter is supposed to test them for that but we took him to his first vet visit and he tested positive for it, luckily we have insurance for him so regular vet visits won't be a problem for us and he's a strictly indoor cat because I'm very opposed to outdoor cats in general so he should be all good but it's of course a bit worrying.  He's a great cat.  We also got a baby gate to keep the dog out of the bedroom and let Pot Roast jump in and out of the bedroom as he pleases because he loves yelling if to be let in or out lol.

  906. <br> <br>
  907. I've been tuning more and more out of social media which is strange to me I used to be posting on twitter constantly, I think this blog has helped quite a lot with that it's somewhere I can talk about things in my life and thoughts I have in a longer form with less pressure, I'm not sure if anyone reads these even but it's nice to put it out there any way!  If you do read these feel free to email me if you want to comment or just chat!

  909. My sister gave me a computer monitor so now I can have a total of 5 monitors active if I really want to lol, very funny to me, two regular monitors, a drawing tablet, a CRT TV, and my iPhone or iPad Pro.
  910. <br> <br>
  911. I'm going to be working on more video content/art soon so I'm looking forward to that, I want to do a let's play and some video art as well but not entirely sure what game I want to play and what art I want to make.
  912. <br> <br>
  913. I'm also going to be rebooting my podcast, stay tuned!
