That new Atlas robot video made my doggone night! WOOHOO ROBOTS! youtu.be/LikxFZZO2sk

If I'd played my cards right and never gotten married, this could be me right now! High-five to all the 8-bit , sceners, and microcomputer enthusiasts out there, livin' the dream and making poor dietary choices in the glow of a monitor. mastodon.sdf.org/media/fqCccTk

In the days of manual color separations in comic books, everything that wasn't line-art was full-saturation RBY (no black halftones for grays unless the inker used some Zip-A-Tone). So human skin-tones could get a bit interesting. White folks in DC's early days were 25% red; Marvel did 25% red + 25% yellow; Asians were often varying degrees of pure yellow; and people more darkly complected came in a small set of ink-heavy gray/browns. mastodon.sdf.org/media/R7ffS8Y

Alright, so markers are now something I have taken an interest in. It dawned on me the other day that if I just get three reds, three blues, and three yellows that I like, then I can color sketches/drawings in a manner akin to vintage comic-book color separations. I've done that digitally for years, but it's always been too ~clean~, y'know? So this is worth exploring for a bit. mastodon.sdf.org/media/fUOgTCY

Sure, let's tag this with since I drew it with real pens. Some design concepts for a character I'm playing with named ATARIUS.

Oy. Jumping into some code I haven't touched in over a year. The good: my comments are adequate. The bad: ...uh ...how do I Python again?

21:00 UTC tonight, aggrotech & harsh EBM. It's gonna be cathartic.

Reading in The Art of Atari, some of the industrial designers mention that they were big fans of Bang and Olufsen stereo equipment ... you don't say!

The global economy: gamblers betting on the effectiveness of bad assumptions made based on wide but shallow surveillance in influencing the distribution of ads that don't work for products that nobody wants and nobody can afford to people who are using adblock.

Been getting some coding done on P·HYDRA, my Atari/POKEY sequencer. Here's a six-minute sampler of some of the sounds I've been makin'. The stuff at the end is the most exciting as I'm doing some frequency modulation and getting some hairy sounds out of it.
