my little sister officially turned 10 yesterday and because i’m in another state i couldn’t see her so i called instead to sing happy birthday and when i was done she whispered “gay” and hung up on me
is that the same sister who put her burned hand on your heart because ‘it was so nice and cold’
that would be the sister
im laughing why is this even buried deep inside windows programming
GUYS GO DO THE THING.
WHY IS THIS EVEN HERE?!
Can’t forget about flourish.mid and town.mid
that was a pleasant surprise
Oh my god what.
at first i thought it was music from an RPG game and I was like what is this even doing in my computer and then i kept listening and i- - -
fun fact: this is ‘buried’ inside in windows programming because they wanted a stock MIDI or .mid file present in windows for troubleshooting purposes, because no other files with the .mid extension were needed. back in 2001 or so when the ‘onestop’ file was first introduced on windows XP, viruses containing .mid files were commonly used to overwrite objects in the windows directory, and in operating systems prior, were very successful at destroying data due to the fact it was a kind of file windows was not built to recognize right off the bat. having that one stock .mid file was so windows computers could recognize the file without making a customer have to install a driver to do so. as to why its so funky, the world may never know
if you were a twin in ancient rome they would name the firstborn and then name the secondborn after the firstborn
if your older twin’s name was geminus, your name would be anti-geminus
that is the equivalent of naming your children steve and not steve
so what happened when triplets were born
Steve, Not Steve, Definitely Not Steve.
nope im not a fully grown adult sir, no sir
SHOUT-OUT TO ALL MY FRIENDSHIPS ON TUMBLR WITH TEENAGERS
YOU ALL HAVE BETTER BLOGS THAN I DO
YOU ARE THE FUTURE AND I AM OKAY WITH THAT
‘omg I love you you are so kind and aaaaah how old are you’
‘16 how old are you?’
I think this when I’m chatting with people on here and then look at their blog description and its like ‘16/17’ and I’m like holy shit you are the same age as my baby sister what the hellllll
Yeah but for those of us who have older tumblr friends, thank.
speaking as a 17 year old, trust me when i say it means a lot when 20-somethings on tumblr treat us with respect and take us seriously because god knows no one else older than us does
Yes I second this
Speaking as a person with internet friends who are younger than me, I would be there for that person even if it’s about a homework or about that one cookie that fell because I don’t want them to think that people in my age are snobby and etc.
"I loved you, always.”
going to comment a little on this game: the overseeing voice talks as if it owns you, and defies your free will. if you follow its orders, you are praised, and the worldview becomes sharper and more detailed. if you don’t, you are chastised, and the world becomes more vague and difficult to navigate, but also more colourful and loud. it’s odd, and sort of eerie, but definitely interesting. take it as you will.
This game really unsettles me. It unsttles me that my first choice to obey, and when I played again and disobeyed, I got really emotional really fast. Failure hurt me more the more I disobeyed. It was… interesting to experience.
i’ve always said we are trained to obey more than to think.
holy shit. i reblogged this the first time without playing. then i played in and it is terrifying. i very much like this, but it will give you intense feelings.
What’s the game??
you obey everything the game tells you too, even jumping into barbs and basically killing yourself. if you dont youre chastised and even the scolding is terrifying
So, essentially, it’s a game that illustrates what it’s like to be in an abusive parents or an abusive relationship - and how it affects you emotionally. That is horrific and ingenious - the next time someone negates the affects of emotional abuse, I’ll take them to this game and let them come to their own conclusions.
This game absolutely gets it. The most solid and reliable degradation is a gendered insult. The more you obey and co-operate, the better understanding you seem to have of your word, and things seem easier. But what really gets me is the contradiction. You are not allowed to have the correct answer. Are you a boy or a girl? The answer is no, I will give you the answer. even towards the end, your “praise” is “no, I will give you the answer. You earned this answer, but it is given to you by me.” Disobeying makes the world frightening and confusing and difficult, but beautiful in a world devoid of flavour.
Not just a gendered insult, either. The nameless voice that directs the player’s actions is supposed to be a hateful, abusive monster, and when the game’s designers asked themselves “okay, what’s the most degrading, dehumanising thing this voice could possibly do to the player?”, the answer they came up with was “deliberately misgender them”.
