The bigger rabbit hole is the vast amount of maker on YouTube. Most repair and restoration videos types can get boring fast.
But there are some gems like https://www.youtube.com/c/CuriousMarc that are interesting all the way through about vintage electronics as vintage it can get, from ancient mainframes to space age miracles and sometimes something more "modern" like the IBM PS/2.

I started watching Adrian's Digital Basement after YouTube randomly recommended me the one where he fixes a TV he found in the trash. Among other things, I've learned that I need to either buy or build a brand-new power supply before I try powering on either of the Commodore 64s I dug out of the attic last year. I also learned that if I hadn't thrown out that Mac Classic II all those years ago, it would probably be ruined from the battery leaking all over the motherboard anyway, so that was a load off my mind.

i have seen 10 star trek movies and am about to deliver my judgement:

1. the "odd number - bad, even number - good" claim is one of the dumbest things i've ever heard in my life.

2. the "worst" star trek movies are "average" at worst and are watchable

Today I saw the word “dirigible” and for an instant my brain thought “they misspelled it, it’s ‘diribigal’.”

but because it lasted a very short time, it almost feels like it didn't happen, but you can just go and see crysis 3's boxart for proof

Pah... Portable trebuchets get en-vogue again. Everybody loves grenade launchers like the one in the Jedi Knight games (concussion launcher) or Unreal Tournament.

Me, working on art: *constantly finding excuses to stop and do other things*

Me, "finished" with art: *can't focus on anything else for more than a few seconds because I keep thinking of things I need to go back and tweak before I post it*

Me, finally satisfied with art and having posted it: *suddenly has no idea what to do with myself*

Memes are dead. There are only NFT trying to be funny enough to sell for a high price and then be stolen by a hacker.

i think i'm not into video games as i used to be

between not caring for a lot of new releases, going on for days (and weeks sometimes) not touching anything and finding watching tv shows or movies a more enjoyable and fulfiling way to entertain myself

the video game ship has probably sailed

that said

there are games i like, but they are too few and far between to argue that i like video games as a hobby as much as i did

not to mention most of them are several years old at this point

the cost of watching stuff is also lower

whereas video games require expensive hardware (be it a good pc or a console) plus the cost of the video game itself (varies, of course, because of sales) plus having to determine if a game is worth playing (which can be pretty hard)
