Holy crab, I just stumbled across an upcoming game called Bomb Rush Cyberfunk.   
I don't really know where the "bomb" part comes into it, but it basically looks like a homage to Jet Set Radio (Future), complete with the high-speed graffiti and gorgeous, melt-in-your-mouth cel-shaded graphics. There don't seem to be rollerblades, though, but from what I've seen in the very short trailer and smattering of screenshots it looks like people are happily grinding and manual-ing their way around the place regardless.   
Who cares, it's the future, everyone's probably made out of metal or something I don't know.   

In any case, I'm pretty stoked about this. I kinda missed the boat on the Dreamcast (even though one of my brothers had one... I might have one or two very hazy memories of playing it, what with its memorably weird controller) but I had a lot of fun with Jet Set Radio Future on the Xbox.   
Gonna keep an eye on this for sure, though it probably won't be out for a while.   

So, y'all ever play the Jet Set Radio games?   
No idea if the developers of those are still making games, but there's always this. Well, there will be, someday, assuming it gets released.

I dont want to put the cart before the horse, but I might be going back to Ireland after all, either to the original place or to one of two that I actually favor more.

I learned that App2SD can fix the broken permissions for external SDcards today, so that write permission is given.

Now I can finally use dosbox with the large FAT partition on my SDCard, and can play Master of Orion 2 on my phone!  YAY!

True it is a bit frightening at the same time. Someone could build a humanoid killing machine.

2 weeks after being challenged by Elon Musk that he will sell 6 billion dollars of Tesla shares to fund a concrete plan to end hunger with 6 billion dollars, UN world food program director David Beasley did provide just that.
'You asked for a plan, here you have it'.

Slightly excited, let's see if Musk keeps his word. He has a track record of keeping (at least part of) promises he makes on Twitter.
I would actually not be surprised if he donated 6 billion dollars.

Really hope he does, also hope the plan works

Damnit people, this is why I said to keep the truce. Because now everyone's ganging up on the cats.
Also, don't forget to contact your local Eldritch Being(s), so that they can help with our mission to destroy the universe.

Isn't he the one who "helped fight homelessness" by starting a lobbying group and donating millions to defeat any measure to keep housing prices affordable or price regulation in Seattle?
