Weeky Links - Relaxation Edition

  • The first song ever synthesized by a computer was Daisy Bell. I had no idea the song's use in 2001 was a reference to that.
  • Machine-generated music that is actually really good. A lot like what they would play at night on the local university radio when I was a kid.
  • A few seconds from various Youtube videos with very few views. Surprisingly interesting.
  • I like computer games but I'm happy to call myself a 'casual', because gamers are the worst people in the world in every way possible. Extra-hilarious gaming controversies.
  • One of the entries about mentions a guy having objects thrown at him for playing Jiggly Puff. Here is his defence of himself. "People don’t like it when I pop off after victories, especially when they come via Jigglypuff, and they definitely don’t like the methods I use to win tournaments. But that doesn’t matter to me. Every story needs a bad guy. In some ways, the role suits me nicely. After all, as far as I’m concerned, my destiny has already been written."
  • KC Green has created another webcomic, this one being a very NSFW gag strip. My favourite is the ASMR lady.
