@srol yeah, i feel that too. don't have cable or antenna tho so i just scroll aimlessly through stuff on streaming
@srol i feel like there was kind of something magical about the absolutely shit situation of having to watch whatever was on. that's how i know i'm old
@srol i've been wondering this myself. do kids even watch regular tv? i thought they all just watched unboxing videos and weird youtube shit
uspol -, it's nothing serious i'm just idly bitching
@irisjaycomics that's the thing that gets to me most about all that. like if i need to send a card or something, i can pay 55 cents via usps and have reasonable confidence it will get there, or pay fedex like $10 for it to get lost in a warehouse for a week
I can't believe I'm not making this up: there's an effort afoot to renovate and restore the area around NYC's Penn Station, called the Penn District. Each part of the plan by real estate firm Vornado is given a number: Penn 1, Penn 2, etc.
The centerpiece is a skyscraper whose height will rival the Empire State Building, and unbelievably, it's been given the code number Penn 15. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/apr/06/new-york-penn-15-skyscraper-andrew-cuomo
@nev the latin course's interest in drunk parrots is fascinating as a topic that probably doesn't come up that often in roman and medieval literature
considering all the bullshit going on right now, i'm definitely doing another charity run of trans QVP masks this year. these will be the Mark II model, so: adjustable straps, double layered, etc. all proceeds will go to https://nwaequality.org. i'll put up a preorder link soon
This is muppets canon:
Beakie is a bird-like monster with rainbow-colored hair, yellow eyes, and a large, spiky beak. She made her first appearance on The Muppet Show in episode 307, where she performed "You and Me" as a romantic duet with the song's co-writer and original performer, Alice Cooper.
At the conclusion of the number, it was revealed that Beakie was merely the form into which Miss Piggy had been transfigured when she sold her soul to the Devil.
