card stopped working on sunday while i was on the underground and i had to negotiate with the turnstile guard to let me out of it without a fine. didn't work today in the shop either. checked online and it seemed fine and non blocked has enough money. spent 30 minutes on the phone to bank and they said its probably just the thing where sometimes contactless stops working until you do a transaction with your PIN.
which.... if that's the case, we'll find out tomorrow, fine.... but that's impossible on the underground... if it IS the case then that's stupid for it to trigger at that point

twitter crosspost:

Since April I've been tinkering with my own interactive fiction engines called Videotome. This week, I wrote a bunch of thoughts on why I made it, other IF engine syntaxes, games in general, and my own creative process. Please enjoy!

Perfect Blue spoilers 

okay in hindsight the film cover is literally Mima stabbing the photographer so I should've expected the violence lol

Also watched Ghost World this weekend which I think is zone adjacent if not totally a zone film. gals being dudettes

Perfect Blue spoilers 

I really loved how it gets progressively less clear what's real, what's imaginary, and what's in the in-film film; and the level of violence was totally unexpected to me. so many gruesome stabs out of nowhere. sickos mode activated
