Genesynth: A Sega Genesis-inspired synthesizer

quote [ My largest side project over the last year has been the Genesynth - an open-source hardware synthesizer inspired by the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive. It started with a crazy idea and amazingly ended up with a functional, incredible sounding synthesizer. ]

Cool DIY project. Love the irony of playing Zelda tunes on it.

"3DSen VR" Brings Nintendo Classics to VR, Demo Now Available on Steam

quote [ 3DSen VR (formerly known as 3DNesVR) is an emulator tool that runs Nintendo Entertainment System games in VR, letting you play the '80s and '90s classic titles that made the console a world-wide phenomenon. ]

I thought it looked gimmicky at first, but after watching some videos and seeing the work they put into the details of each game, this is making me want to buy a VR headset.

A couple of vids in extended.

SE Digest: Volume 46

quote [ Ugh, that was a terrible, terrible Superintendent Chalmers [impression]. ]

I'm not murdered!

In this volume I talk about the asshole roommate and what resulted from alerting the landlord to the problem, George Gurdjieff and being "woke", Area 51 and conspiracy theories, and how to balance speaking my mind on the podcast while protecting the community that inspires it.

Where Are All the Bob Ross Paintings? We Found Them.

quote [ Bob Ross painted more than 1,000 landscapes for his television show — so why are they so hard to find? We solve one of the internet’s favorite little mysteries. ]

These belong in a museum!

A Woman Died From A Traumatic Brain Injury After Falling Headfirst Into A Metal Straw

quote [ If someone does fall on one and it’s pointed in the wrong direction, serious injury can occur. It seems to me these metal straw should not be used with any form of lid that holds them in place. It seems the main problem here is if the lid hadn’t been in place the straw would have moved away. ]

The IRONy of this is killing me.

Gawrsh! Goofy’s entire family may be dead

quote [ Goofy likely has a dead wife. Yes, that Goofy: Disney’s accident-prone cartoon dog. This may require a bit of an explanation for those of you who don’t have an encyclopedic knowledge of classic and ’90s-era cartoons. ]

JWWargo loves this stuff.

Congress Schedules Hearing To Discuss Ending Marijuana Prohibition

quote [ A major congressional subcommittee will hold a hearing on marijuana policy next week, Marijuana Moment has learned. Though few details about the meeting are currently available, the House Judiciary Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security Subcommittee is expected to discuss various legislative proposals to allow states to set their own cannabis policies without fear of federal intervention. ]

I've been going back and forth on taking my doctor up on their offer to give me a medical referral for my chronic pain. I'm not real keen on putting myself into a grey area between states rights and federal law. I truly hope there is some real progress made in having this discussion.

Thomas Jefferson Needs A Dead Moose Right Now To Defend America

quote [ There are no moose in America, said the French count to Thomas Jefferson. They don't exist there. Americans see a reindeer and just call it a new name, saying it's bigger. But the only thing that's big here is your American imagination. Jefferson was incensed. You are an ignoramus, he said tactfully. Then he promised to deliver an American moose to Paris. Here's what happened next. ]

The stuff they don't teach you in History class. Was surprised to learn from the article how young most of the founders were.

quote [ In what is expected to be the most expensive DC Entertainment series to date, Netflix gave a straight-to-series order for Neil Gaiman comic "Sandman". ]

FRICKIN' FINALLY!!

Also looking forward to the petition by those wacky Christians to get this show cancelled from Amazon Prime.

SE Digest: Volume 45

quote [ It ended in murder... Well that wasn't where I was expecting that to go at all. ]

SE Digest early morning edition for you... if you happen to live in the middle of the Pacific ocean.

This volume I talked about recent events in my life concerning exercise and school, and did a proper once over of the past two weeks here on SE.
