You, 2019: Hip, at the spearpoint of our culture, a species of cool that bewilders and fascinates outsiders: Loves Bart Simpson, Garfield, and Sonic the Hedgehog

Me, 1991: Running shorts pulled up to belly button, making thumbs-up gesture in every photograph, constantly running nose: Loves Bart Simpson, Garfield, and Sonic the Hedgehog

There's an episode of the old Nickelodeon cartoon Doug where his art teacher says "I don't know what I like, but I know what art is" and I think about that at least once a week.

When will Mr. Peanut return to save us from sin?

Heard a guy call himself a “mountain snob” while explaining why he’s too good to ski at this mountain. This was in response to his kid asking why he wasn’t skiing with him. Dad of the Year is over, folks. This guy wins

OK, this week I have to absolutely 100% make sure my job follows through on eliminating my position in the way that means I get unemployment. Do not avoidant personality traits yourself out of this one.

i really hate the term "post-truth world"

we've been in a "post-truth world" for centuries

Star Wars

1 - fine, fun
2 - The Room in space on CD-ROM, how did this happen?
3 - fine, hammy
4 - great, too slow for kids
5 - just great
6 - fine, low energy
7 - j.j. abrams is my least favorite filmmaker
8 - hahah, what? they actually made a fun one?

IMO, the Lenovo T series has the best laptop keyboard. Thick and clicky with lots of feedback. Feels great when you're furiously typing about politics at some rightwinger or shitlib. Satisfying for coding too.

Sudden desire to see the pathing code from SimAnt

Nine Inch Nails and Biggie Smalls were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

NIN needs the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame needs Biggie.

My main nagging issue with legal weed is the same problem I have with streaming services taking over filesharing.

People should do more crimes. It's good that we have to break the law for cool stuff. It encourages good thinking.

Something upsetting that I'm just now really admitting to myself is that somewhere along the way I completely stopped caring about music.

It used to be such a major part of my identity and it just does nothing for me now.

I haven't seen it, but it looks like the plot of 1917 hinges on the idea that the British military in WW1 would go to great lengths to prevent its soldiers from dying in pointless, doomed operations.


Anyone have any experience with Cranial Magnetic therapy for depression? Esp. bipolar depression?

I'd describe myself as an Existentialist Christian. It's an absurd religion, in some ways, and absurdity is good.

I think if you read the text, it's pretty clear that Jesus was an apocalypse preacher telling people to leave behind their houses and families and money and possessions because the world was going to end, literally, in just a few years.

He marched into Jerusalem thinking that the heavens were going to open up and end civilization before the authorities got to him. "My father, why have you forsaken me?" = Oh shit, this wasn't supposed to happen.

But in the absurdity of that, there's a vision of an upside down world where the last become first, where the rich and the poor are equal, where a universal love trumps the established order of society. The apocalypse is the revolutionary moment, the sudden appearance of the blank slate, the open possibility, where everything is up for grabs, and a different world is possible.

You could make a good Youtube channel out of playing and reviewing all those collectible card games that came out in the 90s in the wake of Magic's big success.

The trick would be tracking down enough cards to have playable decks.

My (not specific to the show I haven't seen yet) Harley Quinn take is that the character only really works in the animated cartoons (where she was created) because the animated Joker is this fun goofy asshole that you could totally see someone dating and no a murderous sociopath.

All the other incarnations of Batman have pushed the Joker as far into grimdark as he can go, and that world isn't set up to really handle what it would mean for someone like that to have a romantic partner.
