Oh of course, but this way it’s an idea that comes from some white people, as opposed to a faceless corporation. This way, when other white people lose their goddamned minds over it, everyone can shrug their shoulders apologetically because, hey... Read more

But, y’know, fix it without changing anything for us? Yeah, that’d be great. Maybe, and this is just a suggestion, maybe we could do a kind of “Black History MonthS” instead of “Black History Month”. Or what... what if Starbucks had a cup that was black, green and red? Something like that...

Yeah, the concept of the episode was kind of brilliant, riffing on the “conspiracy” guy in the first reboot episode. But that ending... yeesh!

Well I mean, this past weekend on the west coast, going anywhere outside kinda required a mask, full stop. *cough*

Seriously! If they re-release Dune to IMAX when this all blows over (whatever that’s gonna look like) I will be there so fast you’ll see vapor trails in my wake! But until then, there’s just no way in hell I’m going to a movie theater.

Seriously, this piecemeal “We’ve put it off a month.... and another month... and another month” act is bullshit. Whether it’s the movies or the bureaucracy I have to tussle with for unemployment, I think we can all agree that we’re in this for a long haul.

Did they answer the question of whether Gurney Halleck would have a utility bag in the film?

I think that had Woodward dropped this back in February/March it would have been spun into oblivion. It would have been one more thing to Trump to handwave away and for us to consider in a blurry, hazy fashion when the book came out. And that wouldn’t have changed anything. Read more

The 90s were insane about themes and personalizing things, though. The software packs you could buy to make your computer look like it was the ST:TNG bridge, complete with sound effects? Hell, Windows itself having weird neon day glo color schemes. I mean, I know themes are still a thing, but not nearly as bizarre or Read more

I had to turn some of that into a ringtone for her phone. Nothing like hearing Gilbert shriek: “BUT I WOULD BE PROUD TO CLAIM YOUR ANUS!” randomly...

I’ve really lost my interest in the breadcrumb style of storytelling. Especially when there’s nothing for me to be interested in, which is a subjective thing obviously. I loved Ann Leckie’s Ancillary series, for example. Read more

Do you remember the slight kerfuffle about a pair of Ray-Bans (or similar) showing up in Star Trek: Picard? If you’re not a Trek fan, a Starfleet admiral appeared on the show wearing them and some fans had questions about that.
