Every time I listen to Front 242's "Welcome to Paradise," I'm reminded of when I've been able to see them live and the hilariously surreal experience of standing a crowd of leather-and-latex-clad youth all chanting, "NO! SEX! UNTIL! MARRIAGE!" in unison.

This morning, Scarlet has an upset stomach and is feeling a little under the weather. Nonetheless, she still loves sitting on the windowsill, tucking in her paws, and pretending to be a little #loaf of #bread! 🐱🍞 #cat #kitty #cute #pixelfed #fediverse

According to Scarlet: sometimes the best way to sleep is squishing yourself into as small a corner as possible.

I sort of want to find an RPG similar in many ways to Avernum, but just a WEE bit more modern. Not realtime, not a CGI-fest, and not something I need to take a degree to optimize, but something where I can have casual exploration and levelling fun. I guess that describes Pillars of Eternity, which I own. Blar. I've played the first hour of that game 100 times. It seems great, then I get distracted and feel like I need to start over to get the milieu again.

For all the intentional crudeness of its graphics, Avernum: Escape From the Pit is proving to be pretty fun so far. My party is still very underpowered, and I suspect parts of the game will be very grindy. I find in all the games of this sort, also, there's an essential conflict for any non-fighter character between "improve a stat that's functional for this character class" vs. "improve strength so they don't get encumbered carrying a slice of bread".

And very shortly after that, the sun set, with this glorious golden effect.

The goal of Onirim is to unlock all the doors before the draw deck runs out. I win maybe one in ten games. If I do win, I generally have fewer than five cards remaining in the draw deck. This time I won with FORTY-SEVEN cards remaining!

Aryeh Nirenberg has created an amazing video, which lets you feel the rotation of the earth:

Using a tracking mount aligned with North Star, he kept taking photos every 12 seconds for about 3 hours. The camera is looking at the same portion of the Milky Way.

If you like to keep a Solitaire card game on tap for just relaxing and killing some time on occasion, Onirim is pretty fun and is totally free on both Steam and Google Play.
