So, the guy behind Screwattack is still active. Sad to see the site go, though. I remember watching their top 10s religiously as a kid.

September 26, 2020

Okay, so I decided to stop giving a shit about the security on my WinXP VM and install psychonauts on it. I hope Virtual box doesn't freak out while running securom.

Luckly, the VM has twice the VRAM needed to run the game.

September 26, 2020

Despite what the image tells you, I'm not an emo girl

September 25, 2020

So, whenever you change the volume on a bamboo tracker note, it creates a weird cutoff effect. Gonna use that to my advantage

September 25, 2020

Alright, I'm making something using the PC-98's FM synth chip. I hope windows doesn't randomly close it.

September 24, 2020

Webcore is pretty cool

September 24, 2020

It's almost october.

Good time as anything to main Medic while blasting Princess Inada

September 24, 2020

TIL the Sega Genesis can do this. On another note: The FM sound chip on the console gives of a sort of surreal feeling to me. Probably because of the sound limitations

There's also a PC version of 3D Blast based off of the Saturn... it's looks worse than a console that could hardly do 3D. I guess they wanted to make it work on older or weaker machines as this was the early days of 3d graphics. Damn, PC Master race got the short end of the stick with Sonic.

Oh, and the Saturn version has that bumpin techo music that I love, hell yeah. I think it was composed by the same people as Sonic R.

September 23, 2020

I succesfully crated an account on a forum. I don't get why old forums are super hard to register to. Web 2.0 problems.

Yeah, I'm right now doing some forum hopping mostly because they seem less boring than some shitty subreddits or social media. I hope forums come back as the main place for communities and fandoms because I don't feel like signing up for a service like Facebook, just wanna make an account on some site where no one from my old classes wil ever find me and then shitpost.

September 22, 2020

So I bought a Gorillaz CD off of Ebay a while back and it came with music videos. Turns out Winamp freaks out when playing .mov files, Quicktime player I think has some troubles running on Windows 10, and I can't play them through the flash application it had (I have Mac-flash player 8 on my PC so that's weird). Well, thank god VLC has support for .mov videos.

I would use Windows Media player or Microsoft's bloatware app Movies and TV but I prefer 3rd parties since they have better compadability. Also, turns out Groove Music can't play audio CDs, bummer.

Man, don't you just hate it when webdevs stop giving a shit about user friendlyness and fill up half of the screen with cookie warnings and ads.

Another pro tip, if you're so worried about people blocking your source of income, then don't be a dick to your visitors

September 21, 2020

So today, everyone died in a TF2 match I was in so I was the only one in it. Got to push a bomb without any disturbances.

September 20, 2020

Alright, so I did some more reaserch and turns out, Web 3.0 isn't going to make the internet fun again. Damn even social media is gonna look boring, I just wanna look for creators online that aren't held back by some big corperation's draconian censorship.

September 20, 2020

Yes, I did embed the most depressing song in Gorillaz's discogrophy. Why? Because why not.

September 19, 2020

I just wanna bring attention to this part of Rebel Taxi's video. Nothing else, I just really like this edit.

Also, someone on Neocities got snapped by the FBI. Judging by my memory of it, it was probably copyright, but damn

September 17, 2020

So a smug hat kid gif made me break a tenth of a percent.

September 17, 2020

In a really old post I mentioned that I didn't have internet on my PC for a week after building it. Reason why was because I didn't buy a wifi antenna.

The modem was in the living room while my PC was in my room so I inconvinenced myself.

September 17, 2020

Well then, I didn't even know it would rain where I live. Let alone a thunderstorm happening.

September 16, 2020

I see some of those web design trend videos on youtube and... It's the saddest shit I've seen in my life. I don't usually judge a person based on their web design mostly because the amature side of things are usually done by people my age, but if your site is filled with a bunch of pointless animations and you call yourself a professional then I will cry.

Pro-tip from a non-pro: If you provide a dark mode then you failed at making a user friendly design.

I get that these are considered "Cool and Hi-Technical" but they're trends, they aren't gonna age well. What's even worse is that these sites look exactly the same. Where's the creativity? If a bunch of kids on Neocities can make better looking, creative, and distinct websites in notepad, then these "professionals" can too using some software.

I just don't get why creativity and personality is deprecated in the web design community now when 10 years ago, it was the complete opposite. I guess the fun isn't allowed anymore. Bet they'll have a heart attack if they ever come across Neocities or any other of the "cities hosts". Seeing everybody having fun and value substance over style and not making websites to market their shitty products.

Good grief, I hope Web 3.0's decentralization fixes that.

September 16, 2020

I check my inbox and 90% of it is just ebay spamming my inbox. It's 2020 and these service providers havent found a way to block email adresses.

September 16, 2020

One habit I kept from my old computer is that I always close out of every app whenever I boot up a game. My old laptop had a quarter of the ram my build has so I gotta save memory somehow.

Even with games that don't even take up a gig of memory. Can't have my FPS go down by one frame

September 15, 2020

I was playing some TF2 and there were a weird amount of bots like... Imagine cheating in an XBox 360 era FPS. That's just sad

September 15, 2020

Never knew Unity had an HTML engine.

September 14, 2020

Damn, why can't Firefox keep the temproary add-ons.

September 14, 2020 - It's magic, Joel. It's magic.

Oh boy, week 2. Can't wait to have technolology troubles again while I navigate messy school sites. oh no

September 13, 2020

Like downloading steam games. I now know what it feels for someone in the 90s trying to download a David Bowie song. Microsoft Flight Sim (The game that will most likely disable my computer) weighs in at 150GB! Not only would that take out my computer upon running it; it would also take out 15% of my hard drive and most likely my internet.

But damn, those graphics look good. I can't wait for the next decade so I can run it without fearing that my CPU would burn a hole through my motherboard.

September 13, 2020 - edited

What is up with the tech community and bringing back the DS and flip phones

This is what they're doing instead of finding a way to make an internet connection that doesn't take like an hour to download a 1 gigabyte file, or Doom. Damn.

September 12, 2020

Doing my daily routine of binge watching Fact Fiend. In one video they discussed how Leonardo DiCaprio lost to an angry dwarf all because people were shitposting on message boards.

The funniest part is that this probably started the joke about how the poor italian has never won anything.

Also, I learned that there is a website dedicated to David Bowie's Buldge

September 12, 2020

Turns out, VLC has Blu Ray support.

September 10, 2020

The Follin Brothers' music is a sight to behold. You can give them Pong and they'll compose an entire symphony orchestra of FM synth sounds. Its really cool

I wonder how they managed to create all of that without blowing up the sound chips (Or the speakers for the speakers for the ZX Spectrum), like it got to the point where Miyamoto didn't even beleve the soundtrack for Plok was even possible for the Super Nintendo's SPC 700 chip to play.

September 9, 2020

Oi, back this kickstarter. This game looks so cool.

September 8, 2020

Might I reccomend A Hat in Time? It's a pretty cute game.

September 8, 2020

Hate it when I forget that I was in the middle of writing a post and get distracted by something else on the site and post some weird criptic message on my blog

September 8, 2020

On god, if my next class doesn't connect them I'm going to be all kinds of pissed

September 8, 2020

God damn, someone at either my school or Zoom made it difficult for me to join a class. I just started junior year and I'm already gonna fail because the damn thing won't automatically connect.

September 7, 2020

So, Psychonauts (CD-rom version ) kept crashing on my PC and turns out it's because Windows 10 treats Securom as a virus. Probably the only good thing to come out of microsoft in the last decade.

Hopefully there's a no cd patch for Psychonauts.

September 7, 2020

I just read some article and. How sad of a life does the writer live where he had to dennounce a punk band for being dumb and be embarrased for liking them because of it.

God, I hate cynical people who would just shit on something all bacause it doesn't meet their uptight standards.

September 6, 2020

The fact that Myspace is still up is, by far, the biggest bruh moment on the internet.

September 6, 2020

My tablet uses 6 bit color. My monitor uses 8 bit color. How does a drawing tablet have shit color? Ugh, it's too late to think about that.

Anyway, here's something I drew

yo

September 5, 2020

The video up next sums up my reaction

September 4, 2020

There's a Neocities webring. Hope I'm eligable to join.

September 4, 2020

Well, I have the supporter membership so I wonder I should update my button

September 3, 2020

So, MTV made some series where video game characters September 27, 2020 16:19rsed

September 3, 2020 - Super Mario Galaxy nostalgia

Also, I can play sunshine for the fist time. I still have my Wii (OG model with gamecube support) but All Stars can save me from a trip to Ebay.

I remember Chuggaaconroy's lets play of it and always wanted it. It looks awesome.

Yeah, uh before anyone assumes, I'm bordering 17

I wonder if anyone looked into that glitch that Chuggaaconroy found (the hard way) When I was a littler kid I was kinda afraid to go on that brown planet fearing i might also fall through.

Anyone else like the Galaxy's aesthetic. The graphics look gorgeous even today and the dark skies (Metaphorically speaking. Most of the planets dont have an atmosphire) gives off a relaxing nightime feelling

Oh and the artwork is really cool.

September 3, 2020

I can die a happy man knowing Super Mario Galaxy is coming remastered on the switch. That game was my childhood and I'm glad kids nowadays can easily play one of the most uniqe and creative games in the series. Not to mention, experience the absolutlely fire soundtrack

Too bad Galaxy has the Half Life curse but hey two fantastic games is all I need while a third is what I want.

September 2, 2020

Today I learned this site has some compadability issues on Microsoft Browsers. Edge can't load the translucent backgrounds, text is wonky as hell in some parts, and the animates backgrounds take longer to load.

Granted most people are probably brousing this site using chrome so... not like anyone's gonna see that

September 2, 2020

So, web 3.0 looks cool. Hopefully from the news I read that means more creativity on the web.

September 2, 2020

I bought a computer monitor that had HDMI, DVI, and VGA support and the fucker only had a VGA cable in the package what the hell.

My video card has HDMI and DVI but not VGA. Does anyone even use VGA anymore?

September 2, 2020

I was browsing through steam for games I cannot afford, and I found this Newgrounds instpired fighting game and...

There's nothing wrong with taking inspiration from Newgrounds and it's content (My artstyle is directly influenced by Eddsworld) but dont take inspiration from the kids who ripped music off the CDs to use in their flash game

Hearing an orchestral rendition of If and When We Rise Again by Streetlight Manifesto caught me off guard like are they even allowed to use the remix?

September 1, 2020

This site uses the MS UI Gothic font for all of it's text and the only reason why I use it is because Iosys had it back in 1998.

Hopefully 4k doesn't become the norm anytime soon because It will be a bitch getting this site prepared for that. I'm not even sure if my video card even supports 4k.

September 1, 2020

My very first post on this site said that Weebly sucked ass (Still stand by that) and I immediatly got an email from said company asking what I thought about the site.

I think they're pissed.

August 31, 2020

I have a mid tier pc nowadays but back when I was a kid I had this shitty HP Pavillion laptop that couldn't handle flash games back then.

So I decided to browse neocities with it after signing up to the host and turns out, it can hardly run some of the websites. My phone does a better job at handling animated backgrounds

August 29, 2020

I've never been a huge fan of Cirno's old design

She looks evil

August 27, 2020

Anyone else like exploring old websites? Not sites like Newgrounds (1995) or Youtube (2005) which are old but still very active. No I mean this site. which is old and abandoned.

Found it through Iro's site which is similar to Anime Cafe hosting reviews and articles of the subject anime

Anime Cafe hasn't been updated since '04 so it has that retro internet look of static html, soft shadows, low quality images, and a generally quaint atmosphere. Also, old anime fanart.

August 27, 2020

Streetlight Manifesto is fire

August 27, 2020

Currently am vibing to this

August 26, 2020 - edit

I looked it up. It's a tiny laptop with a tablet screen. I mean, I get the convenience but they look like Microsoft glued an ipad onto a leyboard.

Bet they don't have Temple Run

August 26, 2020

What the hell is a Surfice Pro?

This 2bit site mentioned that alot of zoomers know about the surface pro. Am I a Millenial because I have no clue what a suface pro is.

August 23, 2020

To add onto my CD troubles, my drive also has support for DVD, and Blu Ray and Microsoft doesnt have support for any physical media playback on any of their apps. Had to use Winamp for my CD, I'm probably just gonna download VLC for my DVD and my PS3 is under my TV for Blu Ray because no one seems to have made a Blu Ray player for computers (odd considering that just about every movie after like 2008 came on it)

August 23, 2020

I was playing some music off my G-sides cd and the fucker skipped.

Ever since then I am all kinds of pissed off about the fact that my, relatively strong, computer fucked up at reading a music CD from 2002. Didn't even have skip protection when I got my drive goddammit.

I might be technologically illiterate

August 21, 2020

no sound is more pleasant than when you're running a CD and the drive starts screaming as it spins at full speed.

August 21, 2020

Oh, shit. Nevermind it came early... wayy too early.

Touhou 6 running on a windows xp virtual machine

I'm dumb for not realizing it would be difficult to run a Japanese game on an American computer (or virtual machine in this case because I wanted to run it on Windows XP for some reason) but hey it's working.

August 20, 2020

So I ordered Touhou: EoSD on eBay and I didn't realize how long it would take for an import to deliver until I placed it. 2 months for the game goddammit.

It's gonna be worth it though

August 18, 2020

On a less grouchy note: Ska is the greatest genre of all time

August 18, 2020

Correlation doesn't equal causation... unless it's a live action remake of an animation

Disney's live action remakes are shit

Shamalan's avatar movie is shit

Netflix's Avatar is gonna be shit as well and the only reason why they're doing it is to exploit people's nostalgia for money, i guarantee.

 

Also we don't need an adaptation. Avatar is perfect as it is. Leave Aang alone.

August 17, 2020

Its oddly refreshing being able to run games at full blast on a new computer after being used to playing on a shitty laptop

August 15, 2020

You haven't lived until you listened to touhou music

August 14, 2020

So I just got a Gamemaker Licence (The perminant one not the monthly because I hate paying monthly for things I'm gonna keep for a long time)

Also, I made a badge for this site

Here's the code:

August 13, 2020 - internet

 

It's a bitch updating this site without internet on my PC.

August 13, 2020

 

Well, I was going to use weebly but this site grants me more freedom sooooooooo...

NEOCITIES IT IS

Weebly sucks ass anyways
