Me at work: I have never seen this box before, what’s in it?

Ah, a single large chip labeled “lucifer”. It’s 2020, what could possibly go wrong.

there's an american philosophy that good film stories should always be economical, that everything should serve the greater plot. the idea makes sense for a certain kind of film, but for long-form tv series i think we've effectively proven that characters and relationships are more important than plot points. and that is why i think every tv show needs a battle of the bands

Show thread

you gotta admit there is a certain subset of anime that have it figured out. epic fantasy! action adventure! high stakes! but also please show me a whole episode about a school fair or a secondary character trying to prepare their favorite lunch

Looking for recommendations for a news source with as many of these attributes as possible:
* Explicitly left-leaning
* Covers international & US domestic events.
* Not so left that every article is about how some incremental gains don't go far enough.
* Not high energy/emotionally intense (like, I have my own emotions to contend with without also having to parse the authors').
* A weekly roundup format?
* Able to link other people to it.
* Not every piece is 10,000 words long.

Suggestions?

I with Lord Brouncker (who was this day in an unusual manner merry, I believe with drink), J. Minnes, and W. Pen to Bartholomew-Fair; and there saw the dancing mare again, which, today, I find to act much worse than the other day, she forgetting many things.

Fellow retro-perverts, i have good news! My CSS style for Mastodon that styles it like Windows 9x is now complete! #userstyle #mastodon #css github.com/GwyndolynMarchant/M

i think a lot of people have a kind of nostalgia not because of a lost past but a lost future? like, i was thinking earlier, as a teenager i saw the emerging online music culture, of hundreds of people with their own little websites (blogs i guess) hosting RAR files containing albums that people would submit along with personal notes and pictures and so on, and thought THIS was what the future would be like. i was very excited about sending my music to these blogs for the rest of my life

i've finally made the decision: i'm going to become a monotreme and begin laying leathery eggs and feeding my children milk secreted through my skin

Doing the calculations. It says here... it can't be... I'm a dumbfuck? Well, the numbers don't lie.
