#1442225 Harden The Fuck Up February

Posted by KarlGerm on 03 February 2021 - 09:25 AM

completely fell off of working out again. I have no real excuse (other than hating the cold) because I have a squat rack in my garage with (most) of the plates I need to do the regiment I was doing when I was going to the gym. I'm gonna use HTFUF to get back into that regiment.


I also have a shit ton of cleaning/organizing to do in the basement and garage to get things set up better in general which I've been putting off. Everything is all over the place but I got some shelves from Lowes and just need to get some of the stuff on it to make more room so then I can start utilizing that space for something useful and cool.

a few months ago, my girlfriend showed me Madoka Magicka and it's so incredible and it also wrecked me. got some Evangelion vibes from it and highly recommend for anyone who likes to get really sad because of anime. Extremely cool take on the Magical Girl anime trope

my girlfriend recently got me a bunch of fan made Alf Pogs from the Simpson's. It also came with a print out of Bart Simpson's Soul. 10/10 gift.




Pic from the etsy shop she found it on.

This holiday season I discovered 100gecs and liked it, hereby nullifying and unverifying any chance they ever had at being trendy or cool.

oh god please no



Yeah I know, but don't worry! Like I said, since I, a barely-in-touch 37-year-old male has found them, they are officially doomed! So if you actually don't like them you should see this as a blessing.

#1439294 songs that sound like video game songs

Posted by KarlGerm on 03 January 2021 - 06:55 PM

I've had Scatman's World stuck in my head for like a week now and couldn't figure out why and then I realized it's because I played Mario Golf briefly and heard this song and the one motif in it sounds like the hook of Scatman's World




also just now realizing that a Scat-land and Scatman's World implies the existence of a Scatman 64 and Scatman Galaxy

#1436120 Dark Souls

Posted by KarlGerm on 19 November 2020 - 08:23 AM

Last Friday a new Wrong Warp was discovered in Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition that gets you to the last area extremely fast. It cuts out needing to go to the DLC and saves around 7-8 minutes. So basically beating it in under 30 minutes is now free in the speedrun. Last night I was able to get a run that placed me in 13th place. I won't be staying that high up for long but I never thought I'd have a spot on the leaderboard this high with Dark Souls and it's pretty cool

so....uh.... I got a speedrun into Awesome Games Done Quick 2021. I am in shock right now. Schedule won't be announced for a couple more weeks but I'm going to be doing DEMONTOWER from Night in the Woods. It's a mini dungeon crawler within the main game that you can access after a friend of the main character fixes her computer and installs it on her desktop. it's incredibly fun and easy to pick up so it will be fun to showcase.


Here's my PB on speedrun.com if anyone wanted to check out the run. It's quick and fun

#1425801 Dark Souls 2

Posted by KarlGerm on 30 June 2020 - 09:09 AM

bucky posted a new video today for his Dark Souls Dissected series. This is the first one he's done for Dark Souls 2 and it goes into how Soul Memory works. I was very lucky to be able to help him do some research for this episode and we made some really cool discoveries together. Also it was just super nice spending hours on calls with him and catching up as we tried brute forcing invasions and summons. He also launched a patreon for this series which I hopped on to support because the amount of work and time that goes into discovering how things in Dark Souls actually works is insane and so much of what everyone knows about the games is owed to him. Also these videos just kick ass.

#1425800 Depression And Other Social Issues

Posted by KarlGerm on 30 June 2020 - 09:03 AM

I've accepted that coffee is evil years ago in the sense that I treat it like it's just a curse I live with because I cannot and will not ever stop consuming it on a day to day basis. I just grind beans, add hot water and consume every day until I am bones. it is a never ending ritual.

I'm watching a stream on twitch that has Song Request on and someone requested this amazing song. I heard the FM Synth and was like "FUUUUUCK what song is this?" and checked the songlist which had the youtube video:




Looks like it was some sick pinball machine from like...89. The composer commented on the video and it made my day to read:
