Life through a Dog's Eyes

Years ago, i was at my favorite bookstore in Taipei, the main eslite branch, and i picked up a local contemporary art magazine. I couldn't read it, and still can't today, having lived there for a few years during the time in between. Since it was printed locally it was astoundingly cheap (180NT ~ $6USD), which was worth the price for this single photo feature from a Taiwanese photographer with the same surname as my mother's family. That fun fact aside, his love for dogs, and very Daido style made me think he was a kindred spirit. Anyhoo, i thought i should scan it and share these images with a wider audience. Im also working on translating the accompanying article.

Sorry i havent updated this shit in a minute, i've devoted all my free braincells to defeating Toe Jam & Earl: Panic on Funkatron. I need to protect my people from the humans that have invaded our land.

hey folks.

So for the past few days [or weeks? time is?] ive been pretty engrossed in a new project- building out a beginner's guide to the Retroid Pocket 2+, a handheld for retrogaming i ordered and FINALLY arrived. Basically its like a gameboy for everything from old school nintendo to playstation 2, including dreamcast and n64. It's kind of the shit (i played Toe Jam and Earl: Panic on Funkatron at the DMV yesterday), but it takes awhile to configure in order to run so many different consoles*, and most guides out there assume a bit of working knowledge when it comes to emulation and retrogaming in general.

I think its a holdover from my manic video editing style, that allows me to really go to town on multi-day single projects in a way that i've never been able to tap into before, besides the final hours of a paper being due, or a alternative press expo i had it in my head to have a zine ready for. so, thats where i've been, not even bothering to finish the last season of 90 day fiance or start the lastest one to boot. Im a changed person. wasting all my free hours and finishing work early in order to make a hyper-kawaii digital guide to an obscure tech gadget that only a few people have ever heard of, and of that set, even less will have a need for a beginner's guide like the one im making.

You know how when people who do arts or writing, but arent artists or authors, say some corny dramatic shit like "if only one person finds meaning in my work, then that's enough for me."? I'm kinda there, but its more like if this guide helps 36 people save time on set up, that would be.. neat? Putting it on paper really makes it sound like a stupid time investment, just like the sex robot show- trading off dozens of hours of free labor to produce something only a smattering of folks might truly care for. But in both cases, i think the driving force isn't even audience, if im being honest, its making something that i wished had existed and knowing that it doesnt makes it super-easy to go gung-ho; that is, making the guide i wish i had when configuring my retroid, or consolidating the research i expected to be connected while researching my thesis. And in both cases im learning little skills, like how to use style sheets effectively or make animations in AfterEffects.

Anyhoozles, ill link the new site to this one when i finish (obviously), until then, have you seen the neato links page I made? there's some cool homepage buttons for other sites like this on neocities.
