"I suffered so you should too", or: the Boomer Trolley Problem

Them: D&D will turn you into a satanist!

Me, a trans pagan who plays D&D: Lol, ok, boomer.

I just saw on reddit that the opposite of “easy peasy lemon squeezy” is “stressed depressed lemon zest” and now I’m using that all the time.

I'd still rather just be using bezier handles and editing keys, but this looks incredibly tolerable. blendernation.com/2019/10/07/g

Seeking advice on where to put my computer desk(s) relative to the east window in new office, considering 1: Brightness behind monitors contrasting with screen as it probably won't be against a wall so I can access both front and back of computer towers, 2: Glare on monitors, and 3: Screen privacy from window peepers and roommates, I'm wanting to mostly leave the window unblinded so I can leave plants at the window. and maybe the view will be nice.

3 things that aren't in my profile.

1. Felt like a snitch posting pictures of people to Facepalm, so mostly took humanless photos, felt like a sociopath.

2. Took a single, bad photo at my sister's wedding thinking I'll get photos from Facepalm, you know the account I deleted, woops.

3. Sentimental Disney favorite is Rescuers Down Under, never saw the original.

I tag noone on general avoidance of chain posts but thank you for the mention.

All media players without a "rewind 10-30 seconds" button are disappointing. I'm getting spoiled by podcasts, netflix, amazon, but it's just the most logical feature. Especially opposed to the process of stabbing my finger into a poorly webcoded video progress bar on a 2 hour vid and hoping I don't trigger options or jump half an hour instead.

ALL tutorials make me sleepy. Anyways, the Blender 2.8 Fundamentals youtube videos cover much concisely with important premises. I might *gasp* PAY for their Grease Pencil series afterwards, but first I'll reimplement my flat cartoon vector workflow from AfterEffects. Shape key tools for curves aren't a clear analogue re timeline, might be cramped, so I might often swap out fresh clones. Vitally, I must learn about changing/animating the origins of objects. Hope the series covers that!

pretty sure after effects and lightwave both have tools to FIND THE KEYFRAMES

Also Blender, how on earth do I reorient the graph editor view? No seriously?? I scrolled off the map apparently and can't find the keys I am trying to learn how to interpolate just so. I can't seem to come up with a relevant combination of things to enter into the search engine to get what I am looking for. also, menu headers vary depending on which interface section I pulled up the identical toolbox in? Did I have these same problems learning After Effects 10 years ago?

Finally actually making a thing in blender. I hate learning new UI's, or perhaps more specifically I hate how hard it is to find decent descriptions of basic tasks. in this case it's the beta version of Blender 2.8 so within Blender it's new. reference material is scattered and the manuals aren't updated yet.
