I like longform game reviews, but this seems a little overkill :p
Will definitely want to look at this when I have some time on my hands.
The video is great, but I loved the experience of reading the paper. I'm just so used to reading dry, repetitive academic papers; reading something this silly in the format of one is so entertaining. Also I didn't expect remotely as much effort when I first saw this; I read the first page and just thought he made a font with an amusing premise. Then he went through the machine learning stuff, then it kept going, and then suddenly it became a chess bot when that didn't pan out and I couldn't stop laughing.
A big part of my switch from Spotify to Bandcamp was pay-what-you-want albums. It made it easy to build up a music library without any up-front monetary investment, and once I got familiar with curating a library of songs, I wanted all my music to be like that. I used Spotify for ~3 years, and a year and a half ago I just stopped using it altogether in favor of buying used CDs and Bandcamp. I'll occasionally use it for music recommendations, but they generally aren't very good.
Following the last link on the page goes here, which has a curious hyperlink to
res://C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM/SHDOCLC.DLL/ which is advertised as causing a massive spike in the computers power draw. I'm curious what that's about.
There has to be pretty broad specifications for what they censor; almost all of the people and cars are censored.
A true classic.
