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 is neat but i can't daily drive it unfortunately. i use fedora linux on my laptop and windows 11 on my desktop.

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

in terms of android i'd love the samsung galaxy s5, but it's too slow nowadays so i am using a samsung galaxy s10e. the pinephone would be a close contender if it was more polished.

keyboard

it's just gotta be the cyberboard. i prefer cherry profile keycaps. i don't know what my favorite switch/switch type is exactly, but i'm currently using gateron yellows.

mouse

currently using the razer basilisk x hyperspeed. it is a cheap wireless mouse with acceptable build quality, a good sensor, and... that's about it. razer is a mid company with overpriced products, but this mouse is alright.

music

my favorite arists/albums/songs are not exhaustive, i like a lot of music. some of my favorite songs are on my #country soundcloud playlist (which doesn't just contain #country music). 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

i listen to pretty much every genre, but my overall favorite would have to be 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"
