nonsense dream (castle) 

Dreamt that my VFX college friends built an elaborate castle roof stage, in a greenscreen room, and skated it (!!). Then CGI'd the surroundings to make a skate video seemingly filmed atop a beautiful castle.

I saw the results before the setup, and totally believed it. The video got wide media coverage, including an article headlined "I Can't Hear Castles"(??) which only now, awake, I assume argues the castle isn't real due to lack of castley reverb and ambient noises? 🏰 πŸ“°

Now I introduced him to Dark Souls (bad idea?) and was legit shocked he beat the first boss ~third try.

games/Apple mundane 

For the record, I'm totally annoyed with Apple about Catalina, not devs.

Catalina killed a lot of software and games I have (including my own) in exchange for... dunno, dark mode? What else? Huge loss of functionality for small benefits.

Lose 32-bit support when you buy a new system? Totally acceptable.

Lose 32-bit support when you upgrade your OS, on hardware which has been perfectly fine running 32-bit software for years? A slap in the face. πŸ’₯

I tried to introduce my 8YO nephew to Braid last night, but lo and behold, it's another 32-bit casualty of MacOS Catalina.

I was surprised such a high-profile game has not been updated to 64-bit, and that's how I learned they're releasing an Anniversary Edition next year 😐 (which I'm sure will work on 64-bit Mac)

Maybe I'll play it next Thursday, its exact 10 year anniversary :sf_philip: πŸŽ‚ :sf_leghorse:
