"Hiney" of course being the proper pronunciation of "HNY," being the laziest way to wish someone a Happy New Year. Getting this post done "early" since with 20 years of experience I foresaw the trap where the ball would be falling (actually I don't care about that ball at all but it's serving a metonymic function here) and I would do that face from Sudden Clarity Clarence and invariably lose 1,000 points for lateness.

I did get a few things done this month, although unfortunately I can't actually post about them until they first appear in their proper venues. So in this short post I will only tell you about video games. I let myself get sucked into Cyberpunk 2077, which is GTA In The Future. The game got a lot of complaints at launch, but I think it's pretty good now; the main story has several great ideas and setpieces and the only bugs I've encountered is stuff like cars floating in the air or scripted sequences playing out with unexpected preconditions, both of which basically make the game more fun. Right away, I spotted my font Action Jackson in the game:

Action Jackson in Cyberpunk 2077. Here NC as in I ♥ Not Contacting Tom 7 when I use his font

I was excited when I found this in a corner of V's apartment, but it's actually EVERYWHERE in the game. You can probably find it in 90% of street corners, and one of the shittiest guns that you keep picking up has this sticker on it. So I keep getting distracted by it, and also of course now I'm hyper-aware of the graffiti since I would like to make another spotting of a rarer child, if possible. I actually think they did a great job with the graffiti in this game (in fact in general the art is very good) so it's fun to study, but there is SO MUCH of it and many red herrings.

OK, I have to go rejoin the HINEY "party" now! SIGBOVIK season is approaching so more to share soon. :)
