This morning, I worked out (well, I played Arms with motion controls ๐Ÿ˜‰), painted my nails for the first time in probably 3 years, cleaned the house, and helped hang some new pictures and posters.

To compare: last weekend I played Final Fantasy XV and that was pretty much it. I feel pretty darn accomplished now. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

This is what happens when you don't give the Disney Infinity figure shelves a good dusting in a while. ๐Ÿ˜ต

Talking about the Star Wars pre-Special Editions has "Yub Nub" stuck in my head.

When I was a kid we had a piano book of movie scores that was probably purchased a couple years after Return of the Jedi came out. It had "Yub Nub" with the full lyrics in Ewokese and English. I wonder if I still have that book in my box of sheet music...?

We don't need any guidelines or formats. All we need to do is just let it flow right out of us.

"How Millennials Killed Mayonnaise"

phillymag.com/articles/2018/08

This is weird because I LOVE mayonnaise and am also a millennial. I also know a bunch of other millennials who like mayonnaise. I also know that we're smart enough not to eat mayo-based salad that's been sitting out in the sun, which is the author's whole basis for the argument that we killed mayo. ๐Ÿคฃ

@akrabat This time of year I never leave the house or office without an umbrella. The rain is sneaky.

Weather apps should have a "Florida summer" mode that sends you an alert when it's *not* raining.

Boss: we need a new user management system! Me:

Glad I checked out the site this morning! I swear last week they didn't have a WebXR category listed. Let's see if I can think of something clever to do this year... js13kgames.com/

RUMOR: Wreck-It Ralph Attraction Will Replace Stitchโ€™s Great Escape at the Magic Kingdom

PLEASE! ๐Ÿ˜ I feel like I was one of the few who really liked Stitch's Great Escape, but I love Wreck-It Ralph even more!

@Kimitri I may still try that. This is my first time trying to import a Blender scene. Usually I just make everything out of primitives in three.js and call it a day, but I wanted to get fancy this time around. ๐Ÿ˜„

@Kimitri Mostly issues related to running a three.js scene on a low-powered system. Shadows look like garbage, textures are off, antialiasing makes every object vibrate a tiny bit. Of course it would look better rendered with a high-end graphics card, but that's not how I roll.

Turning shadows off makes it look way better, but I'm really attached to how the shadows look in my Blender render. ๐Ÿ˜•

Made a little isometric scene in Blender and exported it with the gltf exporter. Imported it into three.js with the gltf importer. It was easy to make it work, but impossible to make it look good. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Totally missed this yesterday.
