Rime's Thought Droppings
@TheForest

Welcome to my microblog!
I was inspired to make it after seeing similar pages by people I follow on Neocities.
Any resemblance to existing microblogging sites is purely coincidental *wink*

pinterest has started showing me pins that are correctly sourced since i started sourcing them myself lol

its crazy to me how incompetent microsoft is with their app store. i've begrudgedly made an instagram account for my online store, but you can't post anything accessing it through a browser. so i'm about to go download the app from the microsoft store, only to see that it has 2 stars and a slew of reviews complaining about how microsoft REMOVED THE ABILITY TO POST in the latest update. what the fuck were they thinking??

as i was just about to give up hope, yandex pulled through and i was able to find the source of the previously stated artwork! i excitedly go to the artist's page and am immediately confronted by the fact that they draw shotacon. which means sourcing the unsourced instances of the image i found would mean potentially putting softcore little boy art in front of peoples' faces. maybe not all images need to be sourced after all...

i have quickly run into a powerful foe in my crusade to properly source artwork on pinterest: a piece of fanart of meowth and mew cuddling which has been reposted so many times on pinterest and amino and whatever the fuck that im truly stumped.

reverse image search turns up nothing but reposts. i found a dead japanese site that i thought might be the artist's, but based on the whopping two pages that have been archived, it also seemed to be a source-less, repost-heavy site... and one of the archived pages just has lots of pictures of questionably-aged school girls from some yuri anime for some reason??

i've only been using google reverse image search though. perhaps yandex will assist me...

kind of a hot take but i kinda like pinterest's ui, its very convenient for finding inspiration and stuff. however it of course is also a great way to obfuscate or completely strip credit from artwork, so when i logged in for the first time in ages i decided that i would go ahead and try to edit improperly credited pins i've saved to have the proper credit somewhere more accessible, and i found out two things:

1) if you don't create the pin, you can't change the source link. so that one piece of porygon fanart i like is forever stuck with 'cheezburger.com' as its source instead of the actual artist's website.
2) you can't post a comment with the full source either, because pinterest eats comments that have a url in them.

the best you can do is create a private note that only you can see on the pin, which i don't want to do because my goal is to make sure that the image source is somewhere publicly visible and easy to see. i think my best bet is still to leave a comment but not do a url.

i hate kids and don't know much about raising them, but i do know that if you have a child thats still in the pre-verbal shitting-themself phase of life that yelling at them and threatening to hit them whenever they act their age is a good way to at best create a teenager who will go no-contact with you the second they have a way out

next time i have money i'm gonna buy up a bunch of nonfunctional tamagotchis/giga pets/etc, fix them and try to sell them for a profit. would like to do the same for old dumbphones but idk if there'd be as much of a market for them since idk how much longer they'll be able to function
04/04/2021 - 11:34 AM
when i made this layout i decided i didn't need the userpic on each "tweet" or the like/RT/etc buttons below each one but now that i've posted on this a lot i realize the text really bleeds together without them. the social buttons don't have to be functional (maybe an effect happens if you click them but nothing else), and since i wrote this page by hand i have the freedom to use different userpics per "tweet" unlike real twitter

i'm of the opinion that it sucks to be someone on fiverr offering to "clear energy blockages" or make "prophetic prayers". its the opposite of good that fiverr gives charlatans the platform and means to take money out of gullible/desperate people's pockets

>miscalculate the amount of money in my checking account and overdraft
>credit union takes $25 fee
>phone bill comes out automatically
>credit union takes another $25 out of my account
>because of the $50 stolen from my account it has less than $15 by the time my funds from my onine shop comes in
>its not enough money to make my automatic credit card payment
>credit card payment comes out
>overdrafts again
>credit union takes another $25; $75 total taken out of my account
>sits on hold forever so i can beg the rep to give me my money back
>they won't because i apparently at some point signed up for the "privilege" of being charged $25 instead of $29 per overdraft

if you were a goth child in the early 00s, a major formative experience was the trauma of having your johnny the homicidal maniac comics confiscated at school
03/31/2021 - 12:37 PM
20 years ago nickelodeon looked at the creator of johnny the homicidal maniac and said "yeah, lets allow this man to write a children's cartoon"

just saw that james charles has been messaging underage boys so i suppose now is a good time to impart the lesson i've learned from my years of enjoying content:

go into every single book, movie, youtube video, etc with the assumption that the creator/s of that thing are terrible people. assume they've done horrible things that you don't know about. that way you just enjoy the thing in isolation, without getting attached to the creator/s, which accomplishes two things:

1) it keeps you from getting as disappointed in them when you learn about their behavior because you're already prepared for it, and
2) prevents a situation where you are so in love with them that you ignore evidence of bad behavior or attack those who come forward about it

not a fan of how what amounts to TV channels are coming back, but online instead

i will never sleep again thanks to that youtube ad about the guy talking about the 5 to 10 pounds of toxic poop inside me

if anyone is interested in how i've been doing irl, here's a fun fact: i've only managed to shower once in the past almost-a-year

friendship ended with shower, now hand sanitizer on my armpits is my new best friend

oh anyone remember that kid who got thousands of dollars for doing a kickstarter to make a chicken salad sandwich or something. maybe i could do the same thing but with soap

preface: since i'm male and like mlp, i guess that means i'm a "Brony". as a brony, i must have a cartoon horse waifu. that waifu is definitely Princess Luna.

so, here's my weird nitpick: so many of the luna toys out there get her colors all wrong. she's predominately varying shades of blue with very little purple, but the toys are always making her a weird shade of purple. even stranger, the upcoming bishojo statue gets the colorscheme of her pony self correct but puts a ton of purple on her human self, particularly the hair. even if i had 100+ bucks to spend on waifu plastic i wouldn't because of the miscolored hair. (also i don't really like her dress but i can't really articulate why at this time)

being in your 30s is looking back on all the cringe stuff you used to love as a child and realizing that its still good as hell, actually

i wish i smelled like a g1 my little pony doll. a soft, plasticy soap-like aroma

theres too much thin blue line shit where i live. i cant leave the house without seeing at least one flag or t-shirt or decal. the bootlicking is unreal and if recent events dont stop people from simping over cops idk what will

while i'm at it, parents: if your child is too young to safely wear a mask please don't take them into a fucking grocery store!!! i've seen way too many masked parents walking around with their infants

i don't know who needs to hear this but: private property doesnt have feelings, buildings are not alive, you dont have the moral high ground when youre more upset by rioting and looting than a video of a cop calmly looking into the camera while murdering yet another person

accidentally answered a call from one of the collection agencies hounding me because i was expecting a call from my city's dept of human services lskjfdl

one of my biggest regrets in life is the time i somehow ended up at a fancy dinner sitting at a table with some Real Fucking Richies and i didn't do everything in my power to piss them off or gross them out. [dead name] was a polite and timid young girl afraid to make a fool of herself and embarrass her too-old-for-her boyfriend, [chosen name] would've at LEAST chewed with his mouth open while giving them a detailed retelling of the pony cum jar project while they tried to eat

as frustrating as it was to make, im glad i made my own twitter clone. this way my exposure to the varied and numerous flavors of unbearable horseshit that site expels is reduced significantly. this isnt in response to anything recent or in particular, i just mean in general. dumping my thoughts here instead of opening that hell app means im much less likely to see something that will piss me off, trigger me or make me want to ctrl+alt+del in real life. those are really the only three things social media does well which is a shame considering the potential it has to improve people's lives

trying to remember what it was like to experience video games as a child when they were new to me, and just a new medium in general.. being blown away by N64/PS1 graphics, having no expectations because i had nothing to form expectations from, even terrible games (ie. fucking bubsy) were magical in their own way

everyone hates jk rowling now but personally i think it was very brave of her to transform into the real life equivalent of one of the villains in her books

i have no idea how people just, get jobs. i can't even get to the interview stage most of the time. and then keeping the job if you manage to get it?? christ
