So a few years ago I got this DVD while Trick or Treating. After my initial disapointment over the fact that I can't eat it I've just kept it in my room and forgot about it.

I'm pretty sure it's just some generic educational or religious video or whatever

October 30, 2020

I don't pay much attention to the current pop music (Probably post 2015 music is kind of a blur to me). I'm not one of those people, I just don't look into them since I hate reading the news. It's quite odd hearing all these pop sensations from the early 2010s still making music.

I legit thought Taylor Swift stopped making music. But apparently she's still kicking.

And also collabbed with the singer of an emo band, Brenden Urie of Panic at The Disco™. The contrasting tones of their music makes the collab amusing to me.

Then there's Justin Bever. His and Brenden Urie of Panic at The Disco™'s music are somewhat products of their times but I think people remember emo songs more fondly than Justin's music. I remember when everyone acted like Justin was committing war crimes over making medeocre teen pop songs and I'm suprised he, of all people, is still in the business.

Also, the swift song with Brenden Urie of Panic at The Disco™ does not have him insulting the poor groom's bride so there's no reason to even listen to the song.

Yes, what a shame

Also, I got curious if Lady Gaga was still making music. She is and also brought back the meat dress for a voting PSA. I whoheartedly belive she was a Jojo villain in a previous life.

Also I hate reading the news because they like to block adblockers and I just know if I turned those off they'd fill up my entire screen

Alright, so when is Summoning Salt going to cover Cooking Mama 2. I cannot wait to see that video come to life.

October 26, 2020

I downloaded some of ZUN's old Midi arrangements from his website. The files themselves couldn't work on Winamp, I had to load them up in a mod tracker, probably because the instrument channels had japanese names.

Yeah, these were definatly made with the SC-88 in mind, The default midi driver on windows uses the SC-55 for some reason and it sounds quite off when playing midis made for other synths.

October 25, 2020

I'm looking into the Scooby-Doo bloodline. Don't ask why, just need to find something.

October 24, 2020

I am now kewl

October 24, 2020

Say what you want about Internet Explorer, it's quite useful for viewing old flash content

like this site that I'm pretty sure set fire to every computer in 2000

October 23, 2020

So, Commander Keen is Doomguy's father.

Just the fact that an E-rated protagonist fathered one of the most badass characters in video games just cracks me up.

October 22, 2020

Back then, along with Screwattack, there were other networks and groups of content creators from when the Internet was more decentralized. They hosted the videos on the sites and stuff like that.

The only site that's still doing this to my knowlege is Cinemassacre but, there are pleny of others.

One site I remember exploring a few times when I was younger was Normal Boots and I visited the website today.

It looks linda depressing, doesn't even have the videos up anymore. Just a link directory to the NB channels. I also looked up when the redesign took place and, it happened when JonTron left. Guess his leaving sparked a turning point on the site.

Google got slapped with an antitrust lawsuit. I'm not sure if that's gonna affect the company but I hope they at least let other ones compete on the net.

This song immedeatly played in my head when I heard the news

Too bad people are making conspiracy theories about how this is some sort of "right-wing political thing to hurt the public" rather than a move to take a company down 3 pegs. Ugh, that's why I hate people who are obsessed with politics.

Perhaps this is one step towords making the internet less corperate. I hope. I've been hearing some really scummy things coming from Google's anti competition stuff that's no different from Microsoft's doings in the 90s.

Whatever's gonna happen, I genuinely find it hilarious people are trying to defend Google while Microsoft from what I heard is still getting mocked for their violations

CW is making a PPG reboot. As expected from their previous works, it's darker, edgyerrer, more deep, for adults, uh. Just read this shit.

It seems like these CW writers hate light hearted shows, so they have make it dark. It really reminds me of those creepypasta theories about Phineas and Ferb and how everyone died in a car accident or something

Well, if they're going to reboot CN shows, I want them to do Adventure Time and see how they fuck it up. Show got dark by the end from what I heard (I mostly watched the first few seasons before my parents cut the cable) but I bet CW would turn it into another crappy teen drama or whatever. None of the quirky charm of the original.

October 19, 2020

So, the Powerpuff Girls reboot is still running even though no one is watching it. What's even the point of it anyway?

It's just some generic cartoon with that beanface artstyle that does not work at all for the character designs while the original was a superhero parody that has the Hanna Barbera style that every show had in the late 90s. I haven't watched cartoon network since like 2016 (last show I was intrested in was inrested in was the PPG reboot, then I dropped it), the last show I heard about (recently) was the Ben 10 reboot that looks like they tried to copy A Hat in Times' art style and failed.

I'm curious though, what's the point in rebooting an old 90s or 2000s show. People are just going to think it's gonna be shit and forget about it after a year. Why not rerelease the original on streaming or Video. I'd rether rewatch my childhood shows than some bland remake that tries to steer away from what made the classic good all because the writers think it's cheezy or whatever.

Like, if you're going to bring back an old show, do what Adult Swim did with the old Hannah Barbara cartoons and make something intresting with it. Space Ghost was shuperhero cartoon while Coast to Coast was a bizzare talkshow that probably inspired YTP

October 18, 2020

I rewatched Rebel Taxi's Video Mod video and he mentioned a certain page on Nvid's website called the nZone. I have too much time on my hands so I'm looking for said page because he didn't provide a link.

During my search I got to the 2003 version of the site.

Nothing else, it just looks nice. To bad it was badly archived

October 18, 2020

I've been messing with some Nvidia Demos while searching for the weird goth fairy thing that was in MTV Video mods and sported fully modeled nipples for some reason.

I see you. ZAP!!!

nvidia has a thing for sexy faries, okay then. I guess they're not into that anymore as none of the fairy demos are on the site. Also they look creepy now with the early 2000s CGI

October 18, 2020

I wake up today and see that Whang has made a Tales From the Internet video on... oh no

There's a website for everything it seems like. If that and Cuthulu's capaign site taught me anything

October 17, 2020

What is up with people beefing up the framerates of 2D animations? Like, is 24 frames considered shit now? What's even worse is that these 60FPS videos tend to make the animations look worse as most, if not all, where made with 24 FPS in mind.

Also, someone did Coraline which hardly changed anything because the original was already fluid. Actually, I forgot how great that movie looked for one of Laika's earlier works. i don't think 6-year-old me was supposed to watch it and monster house though

October 16, 2020

I just installed this here P3 skin. Fitting as I've been playing it a bit lately

Also, Shishka has some cool links to some winamp skins, including the Persona 3 one.

October 16, 2020

So, there's a rendering engine that's made to display trees. Just an entire engine used to render trees and other vegitation in video games. Okay

October 14, 2020

A few ago, David Bowie launched an ISP. No I'm not joking.

I wonder how many Areologists used the service?

October 14, 2020

Recently I've been looking up some flash sites from the early 2000s and I'm suprised some of them look more advanced than what we have nowadays with Javascript and HTML5. and they certainly are more advanced than my website that uses mostly HTML4 Granted most of them died in the 2000s when CSS came along and Flash sites were infamously hard to archive as said in this Tales From the Internet video

Flash sites are the only old internet thing I'm shaky about because I remember how hard it was to get them running on my old PC, or on any PC back in the early 2010s and I can't imagine how badly they ran on early 2000s computers. But, they look so cool.

This is probably my favorite. Also, does anyone remember Mixels? I used to frequent the website to play the flash games based off of each tribe.

October 14 2020

Damn, archiving my posts downsized the homepage from 30k to 10k

October 13, 2020

I decided to add a profile pic here. Also, all of these posts are made manually

October 13, 2020

I saw a "top 10 worst web design trends" video. Holy shit is it bad like... the man says that borders are shitty design and using pictures of space... apparently.

Then again, these types of webdevs would get mad if they see a color other than white on a page.

October 11, 2020

My ramble blog is on the JAUP list

I wonder if anyone caught the Dragonball reference in my "Next dimension" bit

October 10, 2020

No wonder they're named after mud

Imagine not letting people run flash content all because you don't want people to use the software... fucking sad

Oh well, this is the same company that is now charging people monthly to use their garbage software all because their software kept getting pirated

October 10, 2020

Turns out Mac from Always Sunny is a failed stand up comedian

I would say "I wish that was an episode" but I'm pretty sure they already made one. And it's probably very bizarre like the rest of the series.

October 9, 2020

I'm watching phelous's video on it and he showed the manual which advertizes every early 2000s childrens show like damn. But I only care about shrek because I grew up in the late 2000s and... they have shrek on the damn, game boy. The A D V A N C E D one what I'm not going to get because It doesn't have Partners in time on it.

October 9, 2020

So, GBA video. I might get myself a DS just so I can watch Shrek on it because oh no

October 8, 2020

TIL flash is considered a 7th Gen gaming platform on Gamefaqs... despite the fact that it came out in 1995 and became popular in the early 2000s

October 7, 2020

So yeah, Brutal Legend is fucking awesome

October 7, 2020

Well, I already have Psychonauts. Might as well check out Double Fine's other games

October 7, 2020

Saw a political video on youtube. As usual, It was boring as shit. Here's an actually intresting video that isn't politics but instead about the physics engine of Super Mario Galaxy

October 6, 2020

I gotta get that Henry Stickman collection. My earliest Internet memories (Like any other Zoomer) was playing flash games like these. I miss those times, sure beats the social media focus people have nowadays.

October 5, 2020

The best thing about having a better computer is that now I can brouse TvTropes without all the 300 tabs I'm going to open filling up my ram

October 5, 2020

Decided to treat myself for my birthday and ordered Everything Goes Numb off ebay.

Here's a winamp acreenshot because I'm too lazy to take a picture of the actual album

October 4, 2020

I was looking up some cursed Persona 4 mod and found someone's emo Gaia Online profile.

It's very much a product of it's time. I wonder what they're doing now?

October 3, 2020

Oh god, I just been reminded that the Peanut Butter Jelly Time meme exists.

There's some backstory behind the meme

October 2, 2020

Why does 90s Carman Sandiego look like Jotaro Kujo

October 2, 2020

So, I saw a review of Disney's bastardization of Mulan and the ending, I shit you not, has Mulan and the Emporer kill the main villain I forgot his name with a special attack like it's a Mario and Luigi game and I'm sad that Elvis the Alien didn't use sound effects from those games.

Also Disney better not touch Emporer's New Groove.

October 1, 2020

I feel no shame making this

October 1, 2020

Steve is in smash. They got indie game characters in that game now.

Hopefully other indie characters appear. I already have a list: Hat Kid, Shovel Night, (If they want to go for the older classics) Quote and Curly Brace, Reimu Hakurei, The Hominid.

It's honestly quite fitting for Steve to be in Smash as that game is a celebration of video game history and Minecraft is probably the most, I guess, historic game of the past 20 years. Also I hope Sakurai does a Minecraft lets play on Nintendo's channel. They can't miss that opportunity.
