music I like


Hey look, it's more Wolfgun.

Since it's Halloween, here's some music that's at least marginally thematically appropriate.

Olly olly Oxenfree

Posted by Bfahome , Oct 06 2016 · 119 views

Just watched someone (Coestar) play Oxenfree, and I have to say I am very impressed by it. Visually, I get the same impression as I get from FEZ: the base graphics are very simple, but what the game does with and to those graphics make it look very impressive. Story-wise it's a very interesting take on a supernatural plot, and I didn't really know what's going on until the end… and even then not entirely.

This isn't really a review because I didn't play it, but I found it interesting. So whether you play it or watch someone play it, check it out I guess.

Software updates

Posted by Bfahome , Oct 05 2016 · 83 views

I recently updated iMovie because it promised support for high-resolution and high-framerate videos. After updating, though, I discovered that I would have to update past OS X Mavericks to actually get the update with this support. So I grudgingly updated to macOS Sierra, missing El Capitan by a couple of weeks. The end result is:

- My battery life has plummeted, and the recharge time has skyrocketed.

- My Safari was automatically updated, which I had specifically been avoiding because the new Safari UI is garbage.

- The on-screen volume control indicator is now completely opaque rather than mostly transparent, which is great if I want to adjust the volume while watching something!

- Sticky Keys no longer recognizes a single push for clicking; previously I could hit the command button and then click a link to open the link in a new tab, but it no longer recognizes this as a command-click.

But at least it allowed me to update to the latest iMovie with all those cool features, right?

- iMovie no longer allows custom title fades, so every bit of text will fade in and fade out in the exact same way.

- iMovie no longer supports 4:3 exports, so if you want to make a 4:3 video you have to export it in 16:9 with black bars on the sides.

- iMovie no longer allows you to simply highlight portions of the timeline, taking away an easy way to delete portions of a clip.

- iMovie no longer has little pop-up windows for the clip editing features, instead sticking them all in a little bar over the playback window. So I can't even easily tell how many of those survived the update.

So yeah, if Bfa Plays ends up looking a little different and weird for the rest of its run, that's why. And if I never want to update my software or OS again, that's also why.

e: GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! Turns out the update didn't overwrite the old iMovie, just replaced it. The old version is still available to use, it's just not immediately obvious. So only today's episode will look weird.

Zootopia

Posted by Bfahome , Sep 26 2016 · 111 views

Finally got around to seeing it a couple of days ago. And then again yesterday. And then again tonight.

(My Netflix trial runs out today, so had to get a few viewings in while I could.)

I'd looked up the story a while ago because I was kinda eh on whether or not I'd end up seeing it, so I mean it didn't exactly blow my mind in that respect, but even so the plot is intriguing. And pretty much everything about it was great, especially the character animation and voice work.

Only significant complaint would be the big obligatory pop song. I don't think the lyrics are that great.

Would recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it, though, especially if you already have Netflix or are going to get it.

Shirts: The Remindening

Posted by Bfahome , Sep 25 2016 · 90 views

Hey in case you missed it before, I've got two shirt designs up on WLF's Fan Forge. Basically they're candidates to be made into shirts based on how well they're rated.

They're both Miraculous-themed, because that's how inspiration works for me.

The first one is based on Cat Noir's "Cataclysm" attack and is a pretty simple black and white design that I've chosen to display on a few shirt color options.

The second is Ladybug's yo-yo and Cat Noir's staff just sort of sitting around, a bit more complex in color and design and again shown on a few shirt colors.

So yeah, it'd be helpful for anyone who can to give them a rating, even more so if you actually like them. :P

I'm having some LEGO Ideas. Part of a thing I'm working on. You'll never guess what. Hoping I can get the capability to work this into a decent proposal at some point.

Digimon Frontier

music I like


Frontier was the first Digimon series I ever saw, at least in any significant or memorable way. Probably because of that it was my favorite, though Digimon Tamers just barely edged it out years later when I watched it. Frontier still wins for nostalgia though, which is probably the opposite to how the people who started with Adventure and Adventure 02 see it.

I also really like the theme song. To me it almost sounds like something you'd hear in BIONICLE.

That's the instrumental version up there, here it is with words:
