Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, 04.10.20

This content was imported from gomi no sensei, a project I briefly did during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of maintaining yet another WordPress install, I’ve decided to shove this content into the everything bucket that is my long running personal blog. 🥴

I know today is technically Friday, but the past few weeks have turned into sort of an indefinable gelatinous cube of time.

It’s almost feels like I’ve managed to become unstuck in time. Completely incapable of escaping the world’s longest, mass hallucinated Wednesday.

Songs for Pierre Chuvin

The Mountain Goats’ first all-boombox album since All Hail West Texas, which is one of my all-time favorite albums, period. This one’s inspired by Chuvin’s A Chronicle of the Last Pagans.

Keep Distance Ruler

Artist Keisuke Terashima has created an incredibly useful script for these times that you can run on your iPhone.

The script drops a six foot circle around you in AR — which you can then use to make sure you’re safely distancing yourself while venturing out in the world.

The better thing is to not, you know, go out in public. At least until after we get the all clear. But this is still here, should anyone happen to need it.

In Depth: The Game Boy Printer

A delightfully wonky deep dive of one man’s attempt at emulating the Game Boy Printer in his open source emulator.

GB Studio

Speaking of the Game Boy, my buddy Rich pointed me at this rad, cross-platform, drag and drop game creation tool that’ll export your game as a playable ROM!

I mean, why not spend some of our collective downtime making your very own Zelda-like?

If You Can’t Smash It, Set It On Fire

Big mood. Huge.

I’ve already got the sticker version of this on my laptop, but I really love the colors on the patch.

Bread Scheduler

Unlike the rest of the International Brotherhood of Indoor Kids, I haven’t managed to get a sourdough starter going yet.

This site looks like it’ll be handy for when I get around to it though. I mean, c’mon… Gantt charts!

How to Take a Decent Photo of Your Own Shoes

Matt Haughey coming through with the 🔥 sneakerhead protip.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a weekend of moderate drinking and meal prep to get to.
