Thanks for getting the UF Boardgame Club an interview with Vincent Baker, esteemed designer of the hit indie RPG Apocalypse World among others :)

I really really appreciate the thoughtful comments - thats probably half the reason why I come to this site - to see the perspectives of a cool group of people, and importantly, the same group of people. I love kleinbl00's norman rockwell rants and _refugee_'s art galleries.

But I agree though, it does make a high bar for a comment. I myself basically only comment on pubskis, light "facebook-level shitposting" like the movie post, and meta things (like this!), and maybe that's a good thing, but it definitely is a thing

Gonna be real - doing pretty badly

Out of college & at a full time salaried job. In college, I had a amazing group of friends that I loved dearly, and while social media is okay, having a discord call once a week really isn't the same. And soon I'll be moving to Clearwater FL (nearish tampa) presumably and I've been very anxious that that place is going to be a boring suburb.

Side note: how the hell are you expected to find friends after college? And when the hell are you expected to do anything if you have to wake up at 8am every day?

And the job is feeling kinda demoralizing since it just sunk in that the product we're going to be shipping will inevitably be a hard to use buggy mess and while we're trying to polish it up as much as possible I can't see it being in a place I can be proud of in time.

Long and short is: don't really have anything to look forward to, short or long term

Anyways, sorry for the rant, don't really know what parts of this are covid, what are just "growing up", and what are more personal. Bah. Just got new headphones tho so that's something

I read it as an additional 11k in fees on top of the 95k of payroll

Knowing very little about economics - I'm gonna go way out on a limb here and guess that this will only help rich people

My new hero, Dorian Electra, just dropped a new single/music video after a very exciting 5 day hype building ARG

I really like it, but it's def a different style than their other music videos which are some of the best I've ever seen. Career boy is probably favorite from Flamboyant (but it's so hard to pick just one!)

probably not helpful, but I've always wanted to put together a text-based MUD that works essentially like an overcomplicated discord. you walk into actual rooms etc..
