Ah, but do we?

Jose, your model sea does not seem to be too faithful to the original in at least one respect: poking a hole in the bottom of the original with a part of a tree wouldn't be a real worry. (But then again, a hole of proportionally corresponding size probably would, though for entirely different reasons.)

There are some writings on the screen.
These are the texts for a story-shaped-thing you are making these days.


Seriously going meta here. I feel quite reminded of Italo Calvino's If on a winter's night a traveler, which by the way and for decree was a book I enjoyed immensely when I read it many yips ago (which is still recent if you just see it in reference to the right timescale, like the one from now to the events of the OTC). It also massively ch*rps around with different levels of narrative reality while including the reader in the story.

Hi, everybody!
I returned from my Blitz, back to the Present.

In fact my Blitzrocket already landed a while ago, but I kept myself quarantined for a while to recover from Blitz-lag (not to be confused with yappocisation): Due to time dilation during my Blitz I experienced the OTT as very raptorish, impossible to catch up with. I had to practice RUNing a lot. Back in the Present I first had to re-learn to wait for it.

While Blitzing I experienced many things, some steambottlish ones, but many treeish, even baobabish ones (in the OTT and in the Outside). Maybe a story-shaped thing will emerge from this. You know what to do.

In OTTer news:

balthasar_s improved my hotdog … let's have a look … baobabs!
Treeish idea, losing a flag instead of falling down.
And that artificial intelligence really knows how to hotdog!
Thanks a lot!

Of course I included it in the distribution.

Hopefully I won't ruin your tools.
In any case, I'm totally confused.
But that's okay, as long as I still can wait for it.

AOTC.
Jose/ucim celebrates his 6000th.

but it's pretty cool to be back with y'all in the Present.

@balthasar_s I am very impressed by your MolpyUp automation. It got a score of 1738 on the first try (before you added the flags for extra lives ENHANCEment).

lmjb1964 wrote:This frame is one where the dialogue struck me as odd. Wouldn't you say a campsite was deserted, or maybe vacant? I don't think I would say that a campsite was empty.

I considered it to be evidence of a nomadic culture, which would have no better word for "home" and would use the same words for "dwelling place" and "campsite".

@addams, you linked to https://www.dropbox.com/s/ye98q78k3ms8my1/on%20my%20own.m4a which does nothing for me except ask me to create an account. A well-known song called "On My Own" I'm guessing. The 1986 pop duet?
  ETA: I reloaded and then it let me play it. It sounds like a OTTification of something from an opera. Can you tell us what this is?
