getting all my homies together to watch the Philip Glass Sesame Street animations

I don't understand Apple fanboys, Apple announced that they'll sell phone and laptop repair parts to consumers directly today, and these are some of their reactions:
- the powerful right-to-repair lobby unfairly forced Apple to do this
- because of the right-to-repair movement, people will blow up their houses trying to repair their Macbooks
- you should only trust trained Genius Bar staff with your devices because independent repair shops will deliberately sabotage them to make more money

I like the clickbait headline phrase "the answer may surprise you" because you can say it about literally anything. maybe you're a 9-month-old baby without the concept of object permanence yet, there's a whole lot of things that'd surprise you

*every ex-goon from every website, forum, chatroom, social media and video game come in with everything for a HUGE party*

today's fun: watching a discord channel full of millennials realize that the name of Nero Burning ROM is a pun

thinking about how Facebook's new killer idea for "the metaverse" is a bunch of avatars around a conference table, an idea Second Life pushed for like three months in 2007 before giving up on it

the metaverse is a world where you can do, create, and be anything! now here are the tools that you can only use to reproduce your own face and decorate a cubicle

hundreds of angry old people yelling about how the media is discriminating against white women by using a disgusting racial slur

the Microsoft Edge home tab is funny; it shows you news stories and how many people have commented on them, and the articles that get the most comments are always the ones where someone is called a Karen in the headline

overall pack 8 is pretty strong, it doesn't have any outright stinkers or games that are impossible to play online, though if your group doesn't like drawing or isn't into the randomness of Wheel then it might be slimmer pickings this time around

Wheel of Enormous Proportions: a game show with a trivia phase where players earn wedges on a roulette wheel by answering trivia questions, then a wheel phase where players earn points if their wedges get landed on -- the weakest of the five, the randomness of the wheel phase means there's not much to do for most of the game besides watch and hope you win, but the game atmosphere does a pretty good job of selling the drama and getting people invested nonetheless

Drawful Animate: the third Drawful game; one player gets a prompt and draws a two-frame animation, everybody else writes a plausible prompt and then votes on the one they think is the real one -- the best version of Drawful yet, the animation feature is pretty simple but adds a lot of expressiveness to the drawings; the prompts are explicitly written to stump the usual strategies players used in previous Drawful games

Show thread

Weapons Drawn: a social deduction game where the central mechanic is drawing a "murder weapon" that hides a letter in the artist's name within the drawing -- has a lot of moving parts, was a little slow to get going, but people seemed to be very invested in it by the end once we figured out how it all worked
