I remember back when Firefox 4 was first announced and damn I thought it looked so cool.

And I still do. Shit looks cool as hell.

I added OpenGraph metadata to my website, so naturally I needed to make an image to accompany it.

I think I did a pretty good job.

Years and years ago I had a logo in the form of a bat head silhouette with a gear in it.

It didn't get used much and generally got displaced by other symbols later on, especially when I rebranded my personal site to "Grey's Adventures" and changed it to a rocket ship.

Anyway, I brought it back.

Lost my voice so I pipe the macOS `say` command to my audio input and TTS all my phone calls.

Hypothetical situation for you all. What if:
- Super Animal Royale was also the Star Trek universe.
- Emy was in Starfleet throughout the 22nd to 24th centuries.
- Emy relentlessly dabbed the entire time.

It might look something like this.

Luckily, I am entirely the kind of person to be bored enough to try and fix it!

The lack of consistency in iTunes' film thumbnails (or, more likely, the thumbnails provided to iTunes) is utterly infuriating.
