My name is Jess, though Jessica is also valid. However, everyone calls me Lumi. I live in California and I'm probably older than you but not older than your parents. My star sign is Virgo, but I don't care much for astrology. I like when it's a gloomy windy rainy day, and my favorite season is Fall. My favorite holiday is Halloween, and yes I'm 2spooky for you.
My interests that most people are familiar with include Doctor Who (Classic and Modern,) BBC Sherlock, Torchwood, and Harry Potter (the books.) Additionally, I like Homestuck, SBaHJ, and the Xanth series (and other books by Piers Anthony.) I'm not one to say I'm way into 'fandoms,' so don't worry. On the video game side of things I'm into Zelda, Metroid, Mario, Final Fantasy, and just platformers and RPGs in general. I'm also into Sonic, and I know every word to the Sonic R soundtrack, as well as a lot of the other songs. I'm also very confident that if you played a match of Panel de Pon against me, you'd lose.
As far as music goes, I like to listen to (in no particular order) Smooth McGroove, Owl City (and Adam Young in general,) video game soundtracks in general, Weird Al Yankovic, Gorillaz, The Postal Service, Eurobeat, Nobuo Uematsu, Yoko Shimomura, Eminem, Death Cab for Cutie, Daft Punk, Kelly Clarkson, Crush 40, The Black Mages, Utada, Boowa Kwala, and more which can be found on Last.fm (or on my old Last.fm here) I'm very much into chiptunes and will probably like any chiptune that you send at me.
Tools of the Trade
For artwork, I primarily use Paint Tool SAI, though I do use The GIMP for complex effects that SAI just can't do. For pixel art, I use Aseprite. I used to draw on paper and scan it in, but not so much so anymore.
For chiptunes I use Famitracker. I used to use Linux Multimedia Studio and the VST Plugins NESPulse NESTri and NESNoise because Famitracker was a mystery to me, but I studied the limitations of the NES so much before I started making chiptunes that no one could tell the difference.
I also use my programming skill to help me make art, which can be seen in the Gameboy art I do when I make all the recolors for different Gameboy palettes.
About My Bots
My server hosts a few Twitter bots, such as @BotSql. My bots are designed to post to Twitter roughly 1-2 times an hour, and should only mention/reply to people who interact with them, in limited amounts.
If you ever see one of my bots acting in a strange way, or it has replied to you when you didn't reply to it or replied to you too many times, please notify me on twitter at @FxSql immediately. Please be sure to include screenshots so I can correct the issue, thank you.
Please note that in the event someone replies to my bot with multiple Twitter handles, the bot should only reply to the person who posted the reply, and should not reply to anyone else mentioned in the tweet. Please let me know if the bot ever behaves otherwise, as this is not intended.
About My Username
People have wondered about my username FxSql and the meaning behind it. It used to mean Fox Squirrel, but I am no longer a Squirrel. There's more to it than that, though.
The first part, Fx, is not only short for Fox, but also references the fx1, fx2 and such in Famitracker whenever you use an Effects command. It also references effects in general, which is commonly shortened to Fx, a reference to the fact that I like to use a lot of effects in my drawings. Additionally, when combined with G to make GfxSql (the name for my art accounts) the Fx becomes Gfx, or Graphics.
The second part, Sql, is of course short for Squirrel, but also references SQL, or Structured Querying Language which is used for databases, and is a reference to the fact that I also know how to write code.
The correct way to pronounce my username is by speaking each individual letter, as if it were an acronym. It isn't an acronym, however.
