My subreddit Floating Is Fun

Monday, August 16th, 2021 at 2:28 am | Image

Hi, all! I’ve been away adapting to my new life as a dad. Reddit and its great RSS feeds have been helping me keep up with eclectic music fans, retro gamers, the FGC, CAP makers, dreamers, explainers, and otaku. Still, those don’t scratch my itch for a feeling of floating, so I made my own subreddit for that!

At Floating Is Fun, we play around with things that float in the air, real or fantasy, and it doesn’t take much work for me. If prolonged loss of contact with the floor sounds like a good time, come on in and give us a push!

Oh boy, it’s a Mega Man! The Mega Man games always have rockin’ soundtracks. Krzysztof “MET” Słowikowski made metal covers of every game in the entire classic series, some of the X games, and some other random stuff.

The 8-Bit Big Band

The 8-Bit Big Band plays memorable video game tunes arranged for their incredible New York orchestra from the Before Times. I’m really vibing to this, so it’s a natural fit for this blog’s music pantheon.

Laoshu – Foreign Language Roadrunning

Saturday, March 6th, 2021 at 10:10 pm | Video

Yesterday, we lost a local legend. Moses “Laoshu” McCormick was a giant among polyglots, having developed his own Foreign Language Roadrunning method to practice and speak dozens of languages. He recently became internet famous for finding foreigners and surprising them with conversations in their native languages. I’m fortunate to have met Moses and Marcell at our local fighting game meetups and Asian Festivals, and I’m glad Moses could pass on his knowledge through his online courses.
