Dall-E nonsense 

It's pretty clear that Dall-E 2's library of Roger Dean images is...lacking. But it still managed to come up with some fascinating images.

Instead of a personality I now have the Xenoblade Chronicles. Send help.

Or more JRPGs.

Either one.

I've been playing with Dall-E and seeing how it interprets They Might Be Giants dada-ist lyrics. I present to you: Mink Car.

Egregious Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and 3 Spoilers 

Why is nobody talking about this hilarious picture from the end of Xenoblade 3? So glad Nia held on to this memento of Rex and his THREE WIVES?!?

The moment I saw this character in I thought, "Oh look, they put Brad Shoemaker in the game!" It's Anime Brad!

I just got these today from Steve Jackson Games. I can't wait to be really annoying in a :dnd: session and announce "sweet, I got a nat XX!"

My new “Dresden Files” RPG fudge dice. Shortly after these arrived I found my other, long lost set of fudge dice. Oops, I guess I have MORE dice now.

Me and my four boxes of unused field notes notebooks are offended.

I love these huge dice. When you roll a four on that six sided die, you KNOW you rolled a four. There are no questions left. I bought these so that my kids would stop crowding around the dice bowl to see smaller dice, but I they are rapidly becoming my favorites. :dnd: 🎲

my iMac is restoring from a bad state. I need to babysit it through the restore, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun in the meantime. Really loving the :raspberrypi: Raspberry Pi 400 running Xubuntu.

I put my music player into "just shuffle everything" mode this morning.

seems to be in an .E.M. mood at the moment, with just a dash of Kenny Loggins.

I'm down with it.

I look at this and all I can think is that I'm buying a bag of cut-rate P.M. Dawn.

I realize I'm dating myself hideously here, but I had P.M. Dawn's first two albums. On cassette.

Recently I re-purchased them on CD.

Well, I know what I'm doing this weekend!

P.S. If you have ever bought one of my "Painless" books, that's what paid for this! 🙏🏼 :raspberrypi:

Just discovered that Obsidian.md does italicized emoji. I can't tell if they're doing faux-italics by slanting the text, or if the Apple Color Emoji font has an italic version, but either way it looks very silly.

So yeah, I may be bad at typing, but at least I'm not alone! I mostly buy fin point pens, though. [sic]

I coded this during meetings yesterday. One of the benefits of work from home is that I can do really fun things when I'm bored.

The graphics were also interesting; asprite (or other pixel-art tools) are good for doing an indexed-palette thing like this.

* :raspberrypi: Raspberry Pi Zero WH
* Pimoroni inkyPHAT
* Some simple Python code
* A cron job that runs every five minutes
* pngs made with Asprite
* the Renner* font from indestructible type.

Sunday family board game: Neon Knights 2086. It’s a slow but fun racing game set in the future as seen through the 1980s. I got it on a massive sale, and we like it. Also the “Laser Ryders” soundtrack pairs well with this game.
