are you happy in life?

i'm not sure yet.

Are masculinity and femininity even real?

sure, if you want them to.

If so, who invented them, where do they live, and what is their weakness?

it is a construct of your own imagination. you decide how it is.

And how do we destroy their inventions and repair the damage they have wrought upon humanity?

you don't have to destroy any inventions, but rather change your headspace. and be a bit more wavy with things.

is it nromal to give a crab lima beans?

it can be if you want

What is your question for me?

if you had to pick a number from 0 to 1000, one millon times over, would the number you picked the most equal the quanity of numbers you never picked?

hi dave i tried to make a cake using your recipe and burnt my apartment down, which happened to be oceana, gothenburg. what do you have to say for yourself

you followed the instructions incorrectly.

How are you?

i forgot what year it is.

what is big bang

nobody knows because when it happened no one was prepared to write down what happened. it just, kind of happened.

DID YOU SEE THE GUMMY BEARS????

let me check

If you were to describe yourself as a unicode character, which one and why?

a character? which kind? a grapheme cluster, or a code point, a code unit, a glyph?? all of which i choose ‍.

Do colorless green ideas sleep furiously?

i think natalie would say yes

this is a question to see your character limit... i wonder how high it is because that would be funny if you didn't have one...

it does

i hope it is high so that i can be nice and use lots... anyway is dave a good person or is he a robot...

human

if he is a robot, does that mean that this q&a is just AI responses...

no it's handmade

maybe that would explain how dave can answer so many with quality answers... wow i can still add things... so why did the bunny cross the road..

probably as part of winning the race

, it crossed the road so it could see the bun through the windows and get exited that its releasing soon...

true. i hadn't considered that

speaking of which is the dave exited to finally finish that and not have to use windows again... or does he secretly love windows over mac but doesn't want to offend anyone...

i can't take an operating system seriously if it is possible to open (and take keyboard focus) an application but it appears under other applications. i develop over SSH on a macbook because it is saner.

i think edge is the best browser for linux because it is made by the 3 best techs... microsoft, google, and linus...

that is alright. edge isn't bad.

i wonder if dave will become fancier and somehow even better than him... will i get an answer to this or will this be looked over... something makes me think dave will be sad when reading this because too much text... what is your favorite meme

the chess square tier list

, is it the one where something happens...

all memes happen. it's a fact of life.

is nextjs better than astro or should i use php with bun... should i even use bun instead of node... is bun even going to be profitable or is it going to be sad soon... why is serverless called that even though you need a server... should i send this now or more words...

these are all up to you

any good movie recommendations... any quality books you have read... should i read books or are they bad for your health... is discord better with mods or is it mean to discord... can i get banned from the internet if i be mean to it...

sure

what power does the sea have on everyone... can i wake up in the morning and forget everything that happened the days prior but still remember my first day... did you know that 1+1 actually equals 1+1-0 because maths... do i need to know maths to be good programmer... what age is the best to be... whoever is reading this, what is your name... i wonder if it is an ai as that would be funny... is ai good or should i consult stackoverflow for my help... does the overflow of a stach help me with irl advice with talking to others... should i hide in my bedroom and not communicate irl... should i even communicate to anyone... should i even write and send this... if want, can you role a dice and share its answer... how big can your answer be... does it have a limit or do i only have a limit... do you have ratelimiting or can i just make multiple questions instead of one big one... or could i be fancier and make lots of lots of text... if you are still reading this, here is some fake money... $0... i hope you enjoy it...

please do not donate to me.

is github the greatest invention to devs... is cloudflare stealing my data as its so free... are you trustworthy... what does it mean to be a good person... how do i learn quality languages to contribute to the big bun himself... how did you even achieve such good job... are you just that great at life... how is your music going... will we see some of that in the bun 1.1 release vid... i hope so as its just so good to listen to... ok i am running out of things to ask and say... can i ask if you have any pets... do you have any virtual things that give you joy... what is the meaning of life... what is life... what is thinking... am i real... are you real... is earth really flat... is the moon cheese... can you summarize all your answers of all questions up until this one in 5 words...

no, they are too unique.

can you summarize this whole question into one simple question in 50 words... what were we made for... if i want free everything, what are the best online services... what is the best place on earth... why was fish made... which terminal is the best... is go the best programming language to exist because its got quality mascot... what is zigs mascot... does bun have one... should i add typescript to my project or is plain js better... is esm or commonjs the best thing invented to javascript... is js even that good or is it just over hyped... is tailwind any better than inline styles... could you rebuild this site in a day without looking at current source code... when will we be able to just think and a program or website is made to our thinking... hmm i think the limit is 5k

it is not but whatever the limit is or how many questions you send, you need to keep it on your concious mind that i am going to read the entire thing. you should feel extremely bad about yourself if you abuse either of these things.

so i shall try to reach that... i will tell you a story about a person named lol... he laughed all day and couldn't stop laughing unless he stopped... this made others program a feature to embed into his brain and fix the issues... instead he got ads everywhere... this made him depressed and stopped laughing... i wonder if thats a good outcome... anyway what are your thoughts on that... could it be reality...

surely

my last question is what excites you about life and what makes you wake up in the morning ready to do the best things imaginable, is it you like doing it or is there something more deep that gives you that sense of inner piece like being focused on a task...

the fact that it's possible

that was my last question so i hope you have a good day and enjoyyyyyyyy

give me a summary of dave cuarso lore

did you mean dave caruso? regardless, i still don't remember.

thoughts on 🐰 and bun.sh...

it's alright

are you the bun?

bun

i have no idea if you remember a question asking about geometry dash and i think portal 2 like years ago

you must be thinking of message2021-09-28 16:35 which seems to be a response to message2021-01-25 17:14 which was a response to message2020-06-14 18:51. of course i remember you.

, but i think somewhere i said something about gd 2.2 and your excitement on the update, now that it actually (suprisingly) came out, what are your thoughts about it? have you checked it out?

it's exactly what i thought it was going to be: a game engine. it's great.

i basically only played with the editor. i did not really look at what anyone else made with it. something about a fire in a hole.

i lost interest some time after because i wanted to get back on the album but it's a great game i could spend a few more dozen hours.

would you rather; go out with Tom Brady, or have 1 million dollars?

i don't know who tom brady is so i'd rather have the dollars as opposed to meeting someone.

What is your name

let me check

How is work @ oven like?

this question is not a valid path on windows because it is missing a drive letter.

bun told me to come here, so I'm here

Do you remember the answer to this question?

Bast game in the world

what about it?

Dave Caruso; a music artist, coder, content creator, and fiction writer.

that would be me yes

Do you have a girlfriend?

let me check

the simpsons said i shouldn't make assumptions. is that true?

it would be paradoxical to assume either answer here.

how do you learn zig and any tips or advice you can give me to learn it? : )

just count to three: 1 2 3

though it's more about learning the concepts of writing code, because once you learn it learning other languages is easy. i learned zig very well in a few weeks, and i think i learned the majority of rust in two days.

How are you doing today?

i don't remember

my favorite character

should i clap my hands if i'm happy and i know it or is that not really a good idea actually?

i don't think there is any harm in trying. though since it gets tiring, i like to take "clap breaks" every so often, usually while a performance art takes place, then i clap afterwards. this helps reduce fatigue in my hands.

Will you be my valentine?

i'd prefer to be everyone's valentine, in a fake world where nobody exists.

define dancing

doing exactly what feels right, at exactly the right time.

Is one as in as one does a person?

i would assume one as in the number

how's the album?

How is it climate now

it's raining

who truly taught you music?

everyone did. i learned it intuitively by listening to music and then trying to make it myself. it's kind of like ai, but manual.

"Hey dave, what's the secret formula for your songs?"

too many vocal retakes

-P.S. Sheldon

Follow up q&a from Lando :p

Hey Dave! (if i may call you that)

last i checked (it has been a while though), dave is my name. let me double check to make sure this is accurate

yep. "Dave M Caruso" is the full name i go by, though i think "dave" is good enough for informal, or if you're a close friend to me, there are some other nicknames i enjoy.

ty for answering my other questions, I'd like to ask 2 more if that's ok.

i wonder

1. What editing software do you use to make music?

it depends what project you're asking about.

2. I recently turned 16, got any advice?

have fun with your life before you get to college and you have less time to have fun, and before you get past college where you have even less time.

learn things you want to because they're enjoyable, not because you'll get views.

i have a ton of other things i could say: suggestions on what exactly to spend your time on, things to avoid, software to use. but i wouldn't feel comfortable saying them to anyone besides 16 year old me. it's up to you to decide what you want to do with your life.

like if you want to make art and be an artist, just do it. though i would recommend starting as absolutely small as possible (think to the good old 1 word bill wurtz songs), and then scaling up from there.

:p

should i make a fudging video

i think you should make a video without fudge happening.

Once upon a time, music never existed. How do you feel about this?

unhappy

Silly q&a from Lando

1. Do you think your album will gain popularity from people whom you may not know?

i dont know. it doesn't really matter to me. as long as i make it and i enjoy the result, that would be a success.

2. Do you have a guess/estimate about when the album might release?

probably immediately after it is fully finished.

3. What genre is the album? (If you don't mind answering).

dave caruso music.

Could you list at least 5 things that you think are otherworldly? You could list more, if you want to. Or fewer.

  • mars
  • other planets, stars, and stuff
  • the fact that music actually exists
  • typography
  • graphics cards

Do you have a grilfriend?

if i'm being honest i don't remember

how would you feel if i spoiled any media that you didn't want to be spoiled about?

it probably depends. you should spoil something for me and then gauge the reaction.

what is something you're neutral to?

exclaimation points

who/what are your literary influences?

probably the world wide web

die hard 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5?

i dont know what this question is asking

Smallest thing in the world

atoms

is the world worldly?

no, but it contains a lot of words, usually within books, and that makes it quite wordy. to which, in my opinion, it is close enough to worldly.

do any questions get redirected to auto-response pages?

that sounds like a weird thing to do considering the point of this page is to ask me things. it should always direct to me.

what is your stance on vocaloid songs

what about them?

I am the person that reminded you to update the copyright on the homepage to 2024

no you are not.

what are your thoughts on steamboat willie now being public domain?

average thoughts

i know some people have asked this multiple times, but how do you feel about AI music?

i don't think it's good enough but in the event this stuff takes over the world i'm just gonna keep doing my own music because the interesting thing about music and art for me is the process that the human took to create the media.

i found some ai things interesting because of all the steps the human took to make the ai do the thing correctly, and i think the art there is the process less the result.

if it becomes more widespread on platforms like spotify or youtube i'm going to pull my content off of their platform.

why did this website shutdown today?

i made a configuration mistake then forgot to fix it. sorry for the downtime.

Do you find love or does love find you?

it finds you and then it eats you

I've been thinking about caterpillars and the things they don't know; all they do is eat on leaves and then they gradually grow. When they pop out of their eggs, do they have any clue what their life will have in store for them and what they will do?

you should ask a baby caterpillar. one of my friends was a caterpillar but not anymore. maybe they still remember.

how many people search up these questions manually in the search bar?

there isn't a search bar on this website at the time of writing.

are you a gifted musician?

i am a musician and someone gifted me chocolate the other day so i think that would fit all the marks there.

How do you dissect the atomic mass of a quadrilateral?

they taught me this one in school i swear but i dont remember it sorry.

no

What’s the least rewound time on Phoenix, write? Is it by you?

it's by JokerFactor who got the least possible time, 0.0 (link to discord message). i am unaware of anyone else who has done this feat.

why are your answers lowercased?

i could say the same about your question

Can answers end in exclamation marks?

not sure, i'll get back to you later.

are people in general more conventional nowadays than before? on that note, is questioning the world/authority/our assumptions/etc. not the natural state of humanity but rather something that has to be constantly fought for?

its hard for me to know because i don't really remember what things were like before. but i dont think that you have to fight to question the world, you just have to do it. im not aware of much stopping us.

out of curiosity, how do you receive the questions on this page?

when you press the send button a cat runs up to me and hands me a sealed envolope with the questions and then i answer them.

what Font do you Use?

i was going to ask where but i realized i use recursive everywhere.

If you travel in time to the past, do you create a new world or do you create a paradox?

it is a cow

the bird is no longer the word

its the internal made of one of the gamemodes in the video game geometry dash

Can questions end in exclamation marks!

sure. it just means you are very exclamitory about the question.

how do you spell the letter "X"?

"twitter"

one of

i am sorry. i tried to write the shader on the homepage as optimal as possible but it must not be. if this page is lagging that is because there is simply a lot of content.

As a long-time Windows user, I've actually never used Linux. How is it for you?

i use mac nowadays and it's the best desktop os i've used in my life.

linux is great if you're a tinkerer, and willing to always tinker on stuff. it reminds me of car people like my dad; if their car had an issue the first thing they'd do is open it up. and then unlike me and others, would probably know what the hell they're doing.

and i could do that with linux, but sometimes you just want to make an album and sometimes its worth paying for an unrepairable-and-locked-down-as-fuck MacBook, vs the DIY nature of linux.

again not to say linux is bad, i think its more stable and usable than Windows, but that is once you get it setup. linux is harder to setup and maintain almost always, but i imagine if i touched updates less often i would've had less problems anyways.

in your opinion, what's the hardest job in the world?

retail

if your keyboard was made out of chocolate would you resist

chocolate keyboards dont exist because i already ate them. there is nothing to resist.

are you a game breaker?

more often, i think about if the game can break me.

what font do you use?

recursive except for stupid and dumb places you cannot change the font on.

if you could do it all over again, how would you do it differently?

i'd probably go more into the music side of things. learn piano. i would probably do it 15 times all over again that way. but i think its okay how it turned out this time.

What is Chad Caruso to you?

i don't know. sorry.

whats your opinion on the fnaf movie?

enjoyable. i wish it was scarier.

What is your full opinion on "history of the entire world, i guess"

it was like 11pm and i was curious what this "sun is a deadly lazer" snippet i was sent was about and then by 4am i had watched at least 50 of bill's videos. i didn't realize art could be so expressive.

What is the distance between Sun and earth

it depends on the time of year. when people say it's a "new day", they are referring to this distance measurement, not the contents of the day.

Do you experience the Tetris effect a lot

yes but for a billion different iterations of two fictional characters interacting.

in what genre do you consider your work to be?

never really got around to that, been busy on the album. havent even published the new site layout.

why paperdave?

a cat said so

what do you think about vanilla-flavored ice cream?

prefer regular vanilla if i'm going for the flavor alone but otherwise i love it.

Hii

do you ever use your "sentence enhancers?"

let me check

what is your process for creative writing from idea to end result?

still figuring it out, but i usually think about the idea of doing something specific, for months and months, and then eventually have the courage to give it a try and then i write it out, then i revise, then i turn it into audiovisual media.

for the album, which isnt neccecarily creative writing but it also totally is, i've been giving myself a set of steps to follow and i've been stricter than i usually have been about following the list of steps to the letter.

do you enjoy school

i don't go to school so i wouldn't know

Why can't I just muster up the courage to tell them they have the wrong number?

how would you teach a baby to write "hello world" in python?

with real snakes

when you focus on something, say, visually, do you focus on its color, its size, its shape, etc. (and can focus on anything) or do you focus on the mental concept of that thing (and can't focus on it if you don't have an idea of what it is/know what you're looking for)?

i focus on the feeling it invokes, or the symbolism of the thing, less of what the reality of it actually is. it's more comfortable that way in my opinion.

is any/every action that is undertaken with the intent of making yourself more likable a fundamentally manipulative action?

if that were true, would any action taken to make yourself more hated (such as: kwebbelkop) have the opposite effect? i don't think so. it really depends more on the context of the changes you make to yourself, and what your secret motives behind them are.

some people change themselves to be more likable because they want to like themselves more.

found this site via color discord bot. anyways, does a set of all sets not containing itself contain itself?

it contains half of itself, on average.

do you have any advices for someone who's unwillingly walking a path way different than the path they actually want (they have to(

sometimes some paths are physically impossible to cross. just remember that it's usually possible to walk in both directions, and hopefully at some point you can revisit the more interesting path.

also, check for fog. sometimes you'll find the unappealing path actually leads to something interesting, but you just cant see it yet.

Whatever it is, someone in the world is doing it. Or at least it used to be that way. What happened to make people stop seeing things as valuable in and of themselves?

i'm not 100% sure but i think is related, even just a little, to the new copy+paste technology culture that rose half a decade ago. also "content" culture.

True or false: In science, ideas are not proven or disproven, merely lent credence to or discredited.

True but paradoxically I could not actually prove this is the case, so False.

I asked ChatGPT to predict the names of your following albums. How do you feel about this information? Here are the names if you're curious:

"Circles"

"I'm Sorry I Haven't Touched Base"

"mysterious song of summer"

this one is so close to a title of a SONG in the album.

"a year"

"bite"

overall these were all pretty good but a human can write way better ones.

if you worked on a big video project that had animation, music and text, would you keep everything in one folder or put the animation in the Blender folder, the music in the music projects folder and the text in the text folder or sth, and then make shortcuts to those folders inside a main folder

In the past I had a videos folder and then a folder per video.

For the album I have: ~/Album/logic/<song name>.logicx. Logic is great because each file is basically a zip file of all song contents, samples, etc.

For the videos of the album, I'm not fully sure but i feel like it'll be ~/Album/<song name>/<scene number>/{program name}/file.ext

do you know the way?

this question is like the whole premise of the album.

i think of these as like higher level concepts like "a spoken word moment within an otherwise music packed album" and when i think of these i almost always follow the thought with "i'm sure someone's done this before, but it's definetly not very common"

and if you did what was your reaction like

i'm always so glad to see it's possible.

me and a friend talk about this stuff alot when thinking about each others ideas and theres a word i feel like they use alot. like one day recently i was talking about one idea related to video publishing and they said:

Thats genius. Is there precedent for that?

you have voices in your head?

correct. one of my songs actually is partly about that (you recited one of the lines almost exactly)

your onion on paperdave

is too slow at producing hit albums

is this a question, or is this an answer?

it's both combined in one

How to learn english language

hear and speak words for a few years

how long have you been answering loaded questions?

my whole life. right at the start they asked what i wanted to be when i grew up but they didnt tell me any of the options, and kinda just thought i'd know.

have you ever made a maze

yes, it is called my hard drive.

follow up question do you think "maken" or at least "maden" would be a better choice for make's Past Participle Form. or just anything else but "made" actually now that i try them all out again made sounds fine anyway I'd still like to see what you think about that

should've been "maide"

where's the online million vbucks i have demanded for?

If you press neutral on every question you get istp. Thoughts on personality tests?

They are fun but take it with a few dozen ounces of salt.

how do you host your website?

so i want to rebuild the entire thing AGAIN

right now it is a sveltekit app run on a digital ocean vps (i had issues with cloudflare workers caching and hanging)

every single thing is dynamically linked to a postgresql database. its a mess and i think this is a mistake since so much content is rarely updated and i think the real solution to scheduling content is not a database but just

sleep <seconds till release>; git push

im thinking of using astro in the future but the fact theres no client side routing is really not doing it for me. i started making my own set of tools for it that solves all those problems but its nowhere near usable.

the site is something i want to work on but ive had little time and motivation as my current life time is spent doing these things

  • writing code for bun
  • working on the album
  • being alive life stuff.

working on the site or framework is like, too much code for my life workflow right now. perhaps. maybe a spark of motivation will happen.

in the future it will most definetly be running on bun/oven's hosting service but that doesnt exist yet.

also

i want to take a note to describe how dynamic the question answer page really is. its the coolest part of the site and the only thing that really needs to be dynamic. each question is markdown code using a forked version of a markdown parser that lets me throw in message2023-08-05 21:07 which is just the text #230805210708 but it seems that code is now magically broken. wtf. why cant it just work.

this stuff breaking is the type of shit that makes me want to write it all over myself with just my code. but thats like weeks of work, especially if i want to keep the site as big as it is. there is a case to just make it a single

Why Doesn't My Child Listen?

Maybe you weren't listening to your child.

what android phone brand do you prefer most?

i've only ever used Google Pixel as an android phone, but ive held the Samsung phone and it is very interesting from an outsider. but i think in a few months i'm just gonna buy an iphone. but at the same time i might keep my android phone because i really like the voice recorder app i use on that and i dont believe it exists on ios.

Can you swim?

i can swim similarly to how the pyramids in egypt can be a movie theater. possible, but not intentional or a good idea.

what are your thoughts on the new metric prefixes, ronna-, quetta-, ronto-, and quecto-, added just last year?

i think they are very cool however i cannot find any use i will ever measure anything, real or virtual, with those prefixes.

for distance, i think "inch" or "cm" covers like every single one of my use cases, including within 3d software / virtual stuff. beyond that i'd just measure a distance in minutes that it'd take using the transit system.

4+3

that would be the number of songs in my upcoming album.

how to ask a question?

too late

"Simply owing to one’s learning that a deed ought not to be done, there is no implication yet that one will refrain from it, and verily in the history of human actions there can be discovered many instances of unnecessary conduct begetting at times malign consequences, or otherwise violating some moral principle, undertaken by individuals of otherwise good temperament despite their better knowledge."

you forgot to ask the question

i sure hope you do

Are you bill wurst's long-lost cousin?

i have bad memory so that could've totally happened and i just forgot.

How's the progress on your album, like, in percent?

if we only count the writing phase, 72.5%

if we count the rest of it, i would have to estimate, idk. 20%

aiming for next year but it's really hard to know how long it'll actually take to make it. it might be 2025. but i'm okay spending as much time as it takes so long as i'm not getting trapped in perfectionism.

music videos too.

What's it like to live in your own apartment?

it feels extremely fresh but the place is still a mess as i wait for the rest of my IKEA furniture to ship.

but the general thing is there are bills, i have a job, but i get full control over my life.

liberating

Does it get lonely sometimes or are you good?

so this isnt unique to living in an apartment but for my situation i moved an extremely far distance (Detroit -> San Francisco) so that basically cuts off physical contact to the people i know and love.

Yes, it gets a little lonely because of that specifically. but the idea of living in a place on my own isn't a lonely feeling.

who are you

someone's long-lost cousin.

What themes do you commonly find yourself exploring in your writing and in your lyrics?

my upcoming album explores a lot of negative-but-im-confused-why feelings. also trying to figure out love. also hair.

examples:

oh i

got lost inside a paradise

and

it stopped at every station

but none felt like home

and

i wanna love someone, but i'm locked in despair

life moves so quickly, and i'm almost there

and

oh wow the toast is ready

and

it's a different but sweet and solemn sound

is this easy?

is what? because no matter what you're gonna ask the answer is no. nothing is easy.

Are there any major design flaws present in microwave ovens that you have been able to identify?

i didn't grow up with a microwave and i don't know how to use the one in my apartment. so i can't answer this question.

If aliens exist, they might kill us as per the dark forest hypothesis; but if we are alone in the universe, then if we die, that's it, no more life. Which is more terrifying: the possibility that aliens exist, or the possibility that we are alone in the universe?

i think the latter is the true one because i usually feel alone in my own home. it's not really terrifying to me though, because i've gotten used to it; so the aliens existing would be scarier.

Will you fix "Phoenix, WRITE!"/do you even know that it is currently broken? I would search for this as it's probably been asked before but I was really hoping to play the game but the game gets stuck at the "Foddian Game" section and never loads.

What inspired you to start coding?

part of it is the fact you can do anything and in a sense that is also a curse. sometimes i feel like i wish i never learned any of this and instead just focused on music/videos instead of dumping literally dozens on months failing to automate certain tasks

How was your journey?

i dont remember. i was very young. i know my dad was into computers and he helped me put together this really cool little mini pc and i then just kept going crazy with it. minecraft was somewhere along the journey. so was hacking my wii. windows batch files too, though now i use a blend between linux and macos.

i kind of just kept picking up different things but doing nothing huge with the skills because i didnt have the skills to make anything huge. or the ideas. and when youre a kid in middle/high school just googling how to use react and webpack in 2016-17 it's just confusing and i didnt really understand and either it's gotten easier or i grew but i started really understanding how the web stuff worked. but i also had very random skills in other places like java and c and so on. i also learned php more in depth than i should have but havent touched that in ???. so on and so forth

idk where im going because im pretending to know exactly what happened in my life. also music and videos happened. also elemental. also that thing with ludwig. also bun.

just kinda, do what you want to do. make sure to survive too. if you're lucky, you'll win the game.

There are always two halves to everything: the half one sees, and the half one doesn't. This is true in any number of dimensions. One's half seen is all too often another's unseen. Or is there more that one doesn't see than that which one does…?
