not so much an idea as a videogame Thought, but: Cartoons and visual art in general make a big deal out of using less, being representative instead of reproductive... like instead of a house's bricks all being drawn, you do a handful around the corners of things where shade would highlight them and consider it enough.
the closest I've heard of in videogames is a discussion of how Portal works, they said games use darkness and light to guide players through "open worlds" where an obvious navigation makes no sense. but I'm sure there are ways other than'darkness' to visually represent less detail, so what if you just did that on purpose. as the player gets outside the narrative, there's less anything, and they can easily look around and figure out where the things they're supposed to see are.

I kinda miss 90s low budget porn where the director was holding the camera and encouraging the actors by constantly repeating "atta girl" and probably single person webcam shows mke more business sense but I dunno... I liked the male gaze saying stuff out loud instead of being implicit or whatever it is now
I'm thinking about if I should monitor my video watching better by making myself write a summary of every video afterwards. Both to make it more a nuisance to chain-watch 10 videos in a row and to remind myself when I'm just using it as noise. Might even be useful for figuring out what's going on in the Netflix series that I only watch when I'm very bored
Finally a paranormal experience I can relate when people ask if I have any ghost stories.
So I was on my bike at a traffic light next to a white SUV.
The light proceeded to stay red for 5 minutes, ignoring them.
When it did turn green I started, the SUV didn't. 5 seconds later I turned around and it was gone.
The obvious answer is they didn't want to turn right past a bike, the correct answer is they were ghost
Oh gosh I just drew something with pencil crayons for the first time in like... actually 15 years. I should probably do stuff with physical media more often, the computer stuff just feels like lower cost of entry (even though my computer cost as much as like, 10,000 pencils, and should last 5 years)
I take pictures of bees, and occasionally build 3D models. they/them.
