some of my favorite things. big up to all my lurkers/internet stalkers out there 🙌 you the real ones. this section covers basic conversation-starter type questions.

color

i can't decide between purple and green, they both have a lot of good shades and even work well together!

number

my favorite number is 9 because it is the biggest. a close second is 3 as 9 wouldn't exist without it.

animal

primates, testudines, and serpentes are cool, in that order. my favorite bird would have to be the cedar waxwing.

thinking sand

this section lists my favorite software/hardware and configurations thereof!

open source license

i use MIT for sake of consistency, though ISC is my overall favorite.

operating system

plan 9.

controller layout

the xbox controller layout is way more ergonomic then the dualshock/playstation controller layout and i will die on this hill.

laptop

the framework. currently i own a thinkpad, which are also cool laptops -- but they weren't designed to be cool, unlike the framework, which is cool from factory rather then years of hobbyist support.

phone

the samsung galaxy s5, it has every feature i want at the size i want. the only two downsides is the fact it doesn't have usb c and the front camera is very bad. the pinephone would be a close contender if it was more polished.

keyboard

the cyberboard. i prefer cherry profile keycaps. i don't know what my favorite switch/switch type is, mostly because i don't have the money to buy a switch tester just to find out.

mouse

still searching for a good one... the logitech g604 is too heavy and died on me after a year, so i got a refund instead of a replacement. my trusty microsoft mobile wireless mouse 4000s both started degrading heavily (in terms of the plastics and functionality) after a few years after i got them well. my ideal mouse would be durable/accurate, low latency wireless, fit my large hand under 100g, have a stepped scrollwheel with support for sidescrolling, and have forward/back side buttons. is that too much to ask?

music

my favorite arists/albums/songs are not exhaustive, i like a lot of music. some of my favorite songs are on my #country (which doesn't just contain #country music) soundcloud playlist. i will consider writing blog posts about what some of these artists/albums/songs mean to me eventually.

music player

on windows i use musicbee, i haven't been able to find one that suits my needs on any other os but i haven't really looked. on my phone i use the default vendor music app since all mobile music apps are pretty much the same garbage.

streaming service

i try to buy from bandcamp as much as possible, but for discovering new music/general listening i tend to use soundcloud.

genre

hyperpop, aka. #country. #country is an inside joke between me and my friend, where i linked them a soundcloud hyperpop song that i though was good and they pointed out how it was tagged under "#Country"
