Ran the intro to Visionaries through RealESRGAN and the results were good enough that I decided to try the full first episode! Which is on hour 5 or so of processing, fml. I was going to try 1080p but for some reason the model I have for that is screwy so enjoy UHD.

Just up to my usual antics at work tonight (starting processing jobs on my personal laptop that will probably not be finished by the time I need to pack up and go home)

Not enough* technical outdoor clothing has witty nerd graphics on it and I, the single person for whom this would be the market, am very disappointed by this.

All I ask for is some shirts with fast-dry, moisture wicking, odor control fabric and also like Tendril from Inhumanoids or even just an Autobot symbol on it.

@Hasufin The material is usually pretty stretchy polyester knit, so I'm not sure the transfer would hold up.

Shower thoughts from Son of Godzilla (1967):

-Why did the UN parachute drop a reporter into their secret weapons-testing black site?

-Why does the UN have a secret weapons-testing black site???

-WHY IS IT ON MONSTER ISLAND

@CactuarJoe Look, if you've got a secret weapons-testing black site on Monster Island, you're gonna want to go in by parachute drop.

Horray for transphobic bullshit on my feed because they used the RetroGaming hashtag. And they run their own private instance.

Instance instablocked.

@ColetteDiskette Let me know who it is, that's a server-level blockable offense IMO

Late last year an indoor flea market opened in the old bowling alley building in the shopping center down the street from my apartment. It's been slowly growing and I'd hoped it would really bloom come summer, but this weekend was its last because the property owners sold the building out from under them.

I really enjoyed having it as part of my weekend routine, biking over once it got warm enough and then having to figure out how I was going to get a Sugarcubes record, two carded Marvel Legends figures, and a couple of DVDs secured to my little rear rack.

The new hip bag I got did turn out to be perfect for my Analogue Pocket with the Game Boy Camera on it, though, so I was able to get a couple pictures on the last weekend. I'm still getting the hang of the picture settings, I need to practice more.

Lounging on the couch listening to the Twin Peaks soundtrack on CD with fancy wired over-ear headphones, living life as it was meant to be lived.

Coming into late and it sounds like a storm is picking up outside so this will be fun

A random mysterious girl? I didn't think this was a Mothra movie.

@DinosaurRobo I would hope so.

"What is this spider?" "It's a giant spider." I don't know what he expected tbh

trixter,
@trixter@retro.pizza avatar

Yep that's a spider all right.

Honestly every part of this except the titular Son of Godzilla is really cool.

This has big "Don't worry kids, Duke will be okay!" energy.

And the humans, being the real villains here, fucked off into the sea. Goodnight, #monsterdon!
