LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, evilspoons983! (Today's storm count: 3)
Metric_Furlong: I mean, I know what The Hets are like, I've seen comment sections on Watamote trying to insist Tomoko is straight, but... come on
accountmadeforants: (Typically) low-budget, author-driven medium could *never* feature queer characters, right?
PharaohBender27: I'll wind up having to miss part of this stream because of cooking Sunday dinner, but I knew I had to show up for at least *part* of it lrrHEART
Earthenone: card captor sakura, famously straight best friend
Metric_Furlong: you can't just say things like that, man. you can't.
angryoptimist: It's best to just not get involved in these arguments, or get incensed about people being wrong on the internet.
accountmadeforants: But if I'm to review anything: Holy shit, that last episode of Gundam: Witch of Mercury. Wow.
angryoptimist: Even though it's hard and I, of all people, don't have room to tell anybody this.
Earthenone: maybe they only watched anime where the queer charicters were "localized" into cousins
Metric_Furlong: angryoptimist oh yeah, I know. I'm pretty good at staying out, it's just sometimes you see things and you have to just... sit down for a bit
GapFiller: its 2023 and we are still getting hung up on people being wrong on the internet
GapFiller: thats fantastic
GapFiller: SPOON! /thetick
Metric_Furlong: @accountmadeforants fun fact: that was the subject of the review I unfortunately stumbled upon
PharaohBender27: @GapFiller Getting hung up on people being wrong on the internet is eternal
angryoptimist: @Earthenone It's funny; that mainly just resulted in people going "isn't it weird how these cousins are obviously dating?" :D
mtvcdm: OBJECTION!
PharaohBender27: Cheer300 Watch + Cafe heck yeah!

Metric_Furlong: GapFiller I mean I wouldn't mind, except that if I try to talk about anime these are the same people who are likely to try to join the conversation :p
evilspoons983: graphite lubricant
Earthenone: de squaking chairs, coming to a TTSF near you?
evilspoons983: the same stuff you put in door hinges
angryoptimist: Lithium wants to become fire, so I'm not sold on this 'lithium grease' thing.
RealGamerCow: wd-40 is always the answer. lrrAWESOME
accountmadeforants: @accountmadeforants Oh no
GapFiller: mmm delicious WD40
redtrashpanda8004: Order new chairs its a tax write-off right? Business expense
KevinTheShark: Pro tips here on rhythm cafe
Anubis169: So I heard Mozart?
evilspoons983: wd-40 is always the answer if the question is 'how do i displace water'
Anubis169: and defying the laws of physics
evilspoons983: it's not usually the answer in most of the rest of cases
mtvcdm: As opposed to now, when Heather can make other people defy the laws of physics for her.

PharaohBender27: @princess_intell At the risk of bursting your bubble, you're not the first one to have come up with it :p
PharaohBender27: Oh NO
Earthenone: a backdoor reboot of unskippable!
mtvcdm: Wait... this is the start of the game

zeathean: Was it?
EMNetwork: quite pleasnt!
mtvcdm: OBJECTION!

princess_intell: weren't harpsicords still VERY popular in mozart's time?
offbeatwitch: you're out of control, mozart!
accountmadeforants: You're out of control, Mozart!

gnyrinn: @princess_intell Well... yes, but they call it a piano and the recording is from a piano.
EMNetwork: that opening animation
offbeatwitch: wall-walking
EMNetwork: hit him with the meter
princess_intell: @gnyrinn that was my point, though i could have made it much clearer
mtvcdm: This game is the best kind of awful
CururuGuasu: The other one tells you where the Paid Masons are
princess_intell: can i go hard on roasting this thing or should i be nicer
Earthenone: !time

princess_intell: this font looks so CHEAP
TheMerricat: Elon Harvel?
princess_intell: pretty sure it's from Microsoft Word
offbeatwitch: dude's got a boob window
PharaohBender27: @princess_intell It's the same font that all the written documents in Skyrim uses
EMNetwork: man boob window
princess_intell: he looks like a queer pirate.
TehAmelie: he looks like someone who gets killed in the cold open in an episode of Our Flag Means Death
princess_intell: like a stereotypical queer pirate
mtvcdm: Pot! Smash!
gnyrinn: @princess_intell No, he said that. That happened and it happened to all of us.
princess_intell: am i off base that the coding seems a touch... heavy with that character?
Metric_Furlong: the clockwork of stability!
RockPusher: That kleptomaniac Mozart is coming by, better lock all the cabinets lrrBEEJ
princess_intell: this game SUCKS
KevinTheShark: The first rule of point and click. Rub every item on every other item until it does something
iris_of_ether: Beeflock is definitely someone's alias
PharaohBender27: UM
princess_intell: is there any actual evidence for mozart's involvement with the real-world free masons?

TacitusVigil: Oh hi Ian, Heather. I forgot about you and all the content you make over the long holidays. Kappa
mtvcdm: !crossover
LRRbot: At least one of these things is a Pop'n Music character I'm fairly sure.
princess_intell: level with me: what's the point of this game?
princess_intell: i don't see what freemasons have to do with music
iris_of_ether: Glass harmonica???
Earthenone: the point is to click!
princess_intell: these models are so unsettling to look at
evilspoons983: combine arbitrary items!
Metric_Furlong: the clockwork of force!
PharaohBender27: @princess_intell I get the impression that the plot is essentially a conspiracy theory of sorts involving Mozart, though the message of said conspiracy theory is still unclear
princess_intell: am i reading too far into things or is the guy in the black hat queer-coded?
CururuGuasu: We’re gonna need a yo-yo
Juliamon: I feel like if they're queer-coded, it's entirely unintentional
TacitusVigil: Wait, did that say Masonic square?
evilspoons983: and some peanut butter
RockPusher: Trust your feelings; use the clockwork of the force, Mozart.
TacitusVigil: Er, compasses

UncleExpendable: I just got here. Why is that man blindfolded?
PharaohBender27: That said, this wouldn't be the first piece of entertainment to take liberties with his life (glares at "Amadeus")
Earthenone: hes still pledging mason house
Metric_Furlong: UncleExpendable it's a freemason thing
PharaohBender27: @UncleExpendable He's a Mason-in-waiting, so to speak
