Resharing because it's a) cool art, and b) evokes strong feelings which I can easily relate to from observing people I care about who have done/experienced similar things.

If you have someone in your life who suffers with depression, maybe consider getting them some nice bubble bath, hugs, or something of the sort. It can't fix it, but it can help comfort the wound in some small way.

Youtube has successfully made me an almost perfect late-90s to mid 2000s electronica playlist. It even had Fatboy Slim and Darude. For once, an algorithmic content suggestion that I enjoyed.

So, here's what I've been working on, as a side project, for a little over a month now. It's not ready to release yet, but I'm comfortable with some of the assets now, and wanted to share this teaser.

Yes, I'm making a Minecraft mod. It will feature many blocks and items for your church builds, as well as holy water to combat the undead, habits and other liturgical garb that doubles as armor, and blessed salt to sprinkle around your sacred spaces and prevent the passage of evil creatures.

I got a new toy: an almost-mint 1994 Sony Trinitron KV-27S15, which is a really nice (for the era) 27 inch CRT TV. The tubes in these are arguably the best CRTs ever made, and while they lack 15KHZ RGB inputs out of the box, it's a trivial mod. That makes this the penultimate retro gaming TV. I say penultimate because they also had a 39 inch model in their so-called Hi-Black tube lineup, and it's just plain better from being larger. But I couldn't handle a 200lb set, so I opted for the 80lb one.

"[W]e want to believe that people are infinitely complex, with millions of motivations and varieties of behavior. It is not so. We want to believe that with all the possible combinations of human beings and human feelings, predicting violence is as difficult as picking the winning lottery ticket yet it usually isn't difficult at all. We want to believe that human violence is somehow beyond our understanding, because as long as it remains a mystery, we have no duty to avoid it, explore it, or anticipate it. We need feel no responsibility for failing to read signals if there are none to read. We can tell ourselves that violence just happens without warning, and usually to others, but in service of these comfortable myths, victims suffer and criminals prosper." Gavin de Becker, The Gift of Fear, p. 16

One result of that belief is putting all our efforts into applying bandages through things like legislation, because it's far easier to look outside of ourselves than within. What Joseph Campbell said about technology equally applies -- even more so, in fact -- to legislation and The Government™:

"Technology is not going to save us. Our computers, our tools, are machines are not enough. We have to rely on our intuition, our true being."

There are no "monsters", only people. And we are all "those people".

I found a big enough desk. Now to figure out the software side and get the heads cleaned up.

How it feels when I tell my fighting children that any toys they cannot share belong to Daddy now.
