Loveletterto is a series of short things I have to say about a simple topic. They aren't enough to warrent a separate page, but they still deserve love. Here I will write my humble love letter to certain topics that I find interesting.

88x31 GIFs and Others of the Sort

Oh goodness it's been a hot minute since I made one of these, and to think I wanted it to be a main draw of the site. Oh well, here goes something. I feel like formatting this love letter different to (ugh im sorry) the others as I don't have many hyper-profound findings on these as I do with others. I just love the little suckers. To be able to express my interests in such a consice and different manner is so beautiful and almost poetic in a sense (maybe i was wrong about my profound sayings). For as long as I can remember I've had trouble expressing my feelings in words and they aren't wrong when giving a pictures meaning 1,000 words. The amount that a simple 10-frame gif can help communicate my love and feeling for something or just add to the aesthetic value is something beyond meaning and I love to use them as my little buttons and pins on a battle jacket. I love collecting trinkets and things and combined with my love of patches in punk attire (sounds like a touhou or simple series game) a humble 88x31 gif brings something divine in nature to the table.

I love the sense of community it gives as well. I love that I can yoink a gif from someone elses site to add to my own with no shame at all and someone else can do the same. I love that I can make my own too, and bring something new to the table that others may enjoy. It also is a way of linking others together, and at the time of writing this (16/1/23) I havent made one yet, but, I need to include a column of 88x31s that link to others' super cool sites.

I don't know if you could tell but this is something I believe is truly deserving of a Loveletterto.


For this love letter, I'll probably deviate from the norm. I don't have as much of a spiel when I think about emoticons. I just really like them. I've always found them neat and they prove more accessable to computer users. They're all so cute and there are variations on each emotion allowing the user to have a unique style. I find emojis boring and although they are easier to find and type, the do not have as much character as an emoticon. An emoticon can be a humble ":)" or a more complex one like the lenny face or the one I used on the homepage that uses a Tibetan-script character. Emoticons have the same charm that Ascii art has, and I feel that also comes into play in my emotions for them. Emoticons symbolize a bygone era, a time of raw text, and a time before iPhones. Emoticons just have a different feeling. Not to mention, nowadays, they represent a culture of those who love older things and those who appriciate more technological, more cyber, more innate-to-web things. Damn I wish English had better words. If only I could describe my love for emoticons.


SAPARi is a cute, glorified-chatroom game. Created by Sony in the late 90's, this simple program has quite a history. Recently, a new community has sprung up, appriciating the game. Despite its simplpicity and LoFi graphics, it's cute and charming. I can't help but love it. I myself have 3d printed the cat character and plan to paint it. It's a cool place and isn't even that boring to just walk around and explore. The worlds are quite small but still full of charm and beauty on their own. The ability to explore freely in a first person view feels nice and although I haven't yet gotten the chance to play with others, I'm sure that it is delightful.

Update: I was just able to play with someone else. Despite all of the less than appealing features it has, it was fun to be able to experience it with another person.


Rhopography is a word for art that depicts the mundane. Although it has not dictionary definition, it is known that the word relates to that of the everyday, the small things in life. In a world increasingly full of grand things happening all around us, it is important to remember the small things. Too often do we as a society get swept up in great, beautiful, majestic things that we forget about the simple things that keep the world spinning. We forget about the individual hairs of a velcro strap. We forget about the small marks on our arms that texture them and keep from looking plastic. We forget about the beauty of a still room. A room slient, a scenario without music, something truly raw. I believe that rhopography is a powerful form of art that when taken seriously, is increadibly moving and beautiful in its unbeauty.


17776 has to be my favorite story as of writing this (12/20/22). It's like nothing else. 17776 is an absurdist, sci-fi story about humanity, the future, and the human condition, all disguised as a sports blog article. My claims of it's grandeur seem hyperbolic at first, however when taking a closer look at some of the themes, you will find that 17776 is more than a story of wacky football. Some of the craziest things happen in that story. 2 ton football cannons, a stalemate in a canyon, a 10,000 year long draw, the list goes on. Dear reader, it would be remiss of you to not check it out. 17776 is such a beautiful story with oh so many layers, and it will serve as a key inspiration of mine in the future. Something about the absurdity of the presentation just clicks for me.

And before I forget, I should explain why I love it so much. Although I have spoken well upon it's story-contents, that is only half of the story. I find myself troubled by reading through books in the physical world. The small typeface almost falling off of the margins of the page prove difficult for my eyes. However, 17776 solves this problem. 17776 is what is known as hypertext fiction, a medium (not genre) of story charactarized by an unconventional presentation and the use of hyperlinks, rather it be in a choose your own adventure, or you are hand typing "a href='..'". 17776 is delivered through 26 webpages, each of which contain a decently sized chapter of story. The pages use gifs, youtube videos, pictures, and put those together to tell a story that is more visual and detailed that just text, but is more accessible than a movie. It is truly something to be experienced.
