i feel like i should side with alex here because he's on my side. what do the shoelaces represent?  threads? cobblers? i nearly made a game about a cobbler once, but i never made my own shoes, not yet.

yeah, rgb666 is big. so is rgb333. depends on the restriction. if we work in 1bit rgb222 is big. we only focus on the 8-16-early32bit era - everything pre-doom, pre-rogue, pre-doomrogue, post-adventure, post-zork, post-adventurezork

there are three paradigms: text. arcade games. and doom. we only talk about arcade games here.

but any of us can do a lot with not many colors. antialiasing and dithering and cellular automata. chaos again. we shouldnt require it. we should focus on it.

ok yeah. but the cga/cpc/ega/vga palette is better than the c64 one. i, tocky, have taught us this

tocky, or ibmocrates if yu prefer, has taught us this. color spaces not color schemes, 2015.

whats the difference between 'yes' and 'yus'? the answer: its a pun.   yes: :D yus: :hehe:

this suggests that somewhere there is a YES BIRD


but who else can we get? waluigi, wario, toad, daisy, peach, bowser, pink toad, etc

all of these characters are canon and all of them are locked in endless combat

who will win? the pixel will always win

somebody unlock the map everything thread for me so i can talk about this shit on there. someone tell crow to fuck off for me. let me delete my own posts if its so important that all my posts should be deleted

anyway all this shit goes on my hacker resume. pacified and moderated a pixel forum. give me a new subforum to talk about code

anyway, might as well move all this stuff into other threads. 'why we should listen to tocky' and 'commercial critique the maniac mansion'

Everything we do is a performance, everything we believe isn't about a deep truth but is a social construct, as far as I can tell, so there's no full representation of anything to be precious about. Your mispellings are not precious, even if you take them to a therapist, they will probably cut to the chase and deal with much more overwhelming issues than 'why did I mispell this word?'. 

Tocky wants people to follow him, he wants to be a moderator, he wants to have a legacy, he wants to help people. These are concrete goals which will take a lot of performance to achieve.
yeah. all this shit i learned from you and zak and eleizer. how to be a chaos mod. you only have to act slightly outside the existing moderation. the community will cull its own ghosts.

i mean i learned this shit from you but i also took a screenwriting course and played d&d and whatever. chaos theory is hard to learn. you gotta pay attention to mystics and absurdists. humorists.

we should not be ashamed to be pirates, or privateers or whateve. we must meet the pirates if we are to defeat them. they are accelerationists. everyone in hollywood pirates movies. everyone in music pirates music. we should pirate games and old art books. i will even tell you which ones to get. if we do not we will be defeated by those that will. pay for things if you must, but you have to meet these pirates

its hypocritical to be a pirate and then to turn and say, my stuff is not pirateable though

its bad for games also. but we are good at references on here. if you dont like it write your own book about how this guys book sucks, but do not tell him not to write it

then congratulations, you are future-tocky.

now um... games arent just pixels. they're texts as well. the text is what makes the game work. and so i must teach all of you to write code. shiffman can teach you processing. i will teach you jokes. shiffman for basics, tocky for esoterics.

yudokowski will teach you how to be rational. read HARRY POTTER AND THE METHODS OF RATIONALITY

typos are puns. puns are jokes.

and yeah - what alex is saying below. if you can read it quickly youre speed-reading, youre not really reading. Aim to be done in 10 years time, or 10k hours, whichever is first. it's science. ask your doctor if science is right for you.

youre gonna get these fast guys in, they'll pick up some tips and power through
guys with money, they will pay for it
other guys are lifers, grognards, dwarfs. they are the best of us. bless us all

i am a known esotericist. if you need a hacker dictionary there is always the jargon file. i will try to be more straightforward.

every mispelling is important - a small failure. why did you fail to spell the word correctly? let people wonder. i can usually think about why i spelled it wrong if i think of it as a tiny panic attack. like, writing a thing that must not be said. very cyclopean. soemtimes you have to keep teh bugs in so others can find them. this is why i dont liek to be moderated.

HOMESTUCK teaches us that spelling is voice. if we all spell things the same we lose all that. for waht? the pursuit of a neutral point of view? i prefer chaos - in pursuit of a kinder discourse

Check yourself - 5 bucks for a book, to new people (esp. younger folks which is when we all started) is much more of a gate than disgruntled old has-beens on some forum trying to enforce their credit line. I'd advocate for the opposite, for this dude to make his book download-for-free and proudly saying "I CAME UP WITH ALL THIS SHIT" in the front page in 40 point font.

books are free these days. i have written a bunch of d&d books, theyre free on my d&d blog. evil baboons
