Contacting me Show more
If you want to ask me something specific, it's best to DM me so I don't miss it.
If you want to message me elsewhere, check out https://noct.zone/contact/.
If you wanna talk about my other projects, mention those specific project accounts and not both them and me.
If it takes me a long while to respond, that's normal, it's not your fault.
I started making a joke minimalist, soylent-esque Weetabix package to appeal to modern bougies but I'm not particularly good at witty writing so I've canned it
Someone do an organic artisanal version and charge double
Weetabix is minimalist cereal
I met Reggie Fils Aime once for the launch of the 3DS back in 2011. He shook my hand and gave me a very generic "Stay in school" line and you know when Reggie says that, it's not advice, it's a threat.
UKpol, IG, Twitter Show more
It's interesting as I've been getting sucked in to UK politics on Twitter a bit lately, looking at IG as a manifestation - through IG's own rhetoric and that of it's supporters - of anger from a particular group of people for whom the idea of a world of competing interests never existed, and have been seriously lashing out as a result.
'it's no longer left vs right, just sensible versus insane!'
'what the hell is a communist doing on Newsnight, she's immature by definition!'

If they can’t present themselves as neutral, honest, professionals just trying to make the world a better place, then just what good are they for anything?'

'The political elite, along with its most enthusiastic followers in the managerial class, cannot make any such admission [of class conflict] to others or to themselves, partly because their whole job is to come up with clever stories about the world and to mediate between the interests of different social groups.'

LB: trying more and more to be less minimalist
Something cool that I shared with patrons a month ago: a very rough concept of what a browser extension could look like~
(Basically, if divorced from socioeconomic contexts, I'd like Teenage Engineering substantially more than I actually do.)
(Also the wider phenomenon of excellently executed designs are a marker of prestige and are typically reserved for the wealthy to give them something else to jerk themelves off to)
Going back to minimalism, I think one of the few examples of minimalism I can kind of (kind of) appreciate is some of the stuff Teenage Engineering do, like the OP-Z, because their products inject a playfulness and frivolousness within that space.
That being said, a lot of their products are quite unjustifiably expensive (and they recently hiked the price of the OP-1 to ridiculous levels), so it kind of reinforces the minimalism for rich people thing.
