For me, it’s a bit of both. It sounds like a legit Bond song. The subject matter is very similar to what you’d find in a Bond song. But the lyrics are juuuuuust left of making sense. You might not even notice it the first time you hear it, and I think it has a lot to do with how the song is performed. There’s so much Read more

You did the Lord’s work with this one, Ash. After the last piece on her, I set off to see what I could find, and came across some of the same things you did. I hadn’t realized how much I cared to find out more until you’d reminded me how much I loved that song. I’ll be honest, I’m surprised to see a follow up. This is Read more

Of course it’s different. That doesn’t mean that talking over the entirety of a game is legally different from talking over the entirety of a movie in a commercial context.

No, I get it. It’s just not something that matters in a discussion about whether or not streaming is fair use.

I don’t think the reaction from streamers would do much, but if it came to pass that streamers had to actually follow the law even if off a cliff, it would probably mean that everyone else working along the fringes of the law would have to follow its strict interpretation, too. That would make things interesting. Read more

We both know that that the parasocial relationship is the product, not necessarily the gameplay. But that doesn’t make broadcasting someone else’s material fair use. This is setting aside the fact that the games are what allowed Twitch to thrive where so many other streaming sites died. Selling parasocial Read more

Playing a game with added commentary is no more transformative than watching a movie with added commentary. Fair use also isn’t a license to do what you will with media that falls within its purview. Read more

Labels gonna label. Their whole industry is predicated on control, and the new new that is online content creation might sway the building, but the foundation isn’t gonna move. Read more

Hahaha, I do. Seems like someone in the writer’s room was well aware of it, too, considering it’s one of the bits of minutia they decided to amp the shit out of for the remake.

I look forward to Final Fantasy VIII: Remake, now with more random, corny swearing to appeal to the now 30-somethings that played the original when they were 13. Suck on that shit, Ultimecia!

Considering how long it took Sony to offer an “Appear Offline” option, maybe we’ll get more than just the two by the time the PS6 releases. The PSN has always been the redheaded step child of the Playstation ecosystem.

I look forward to this movie because I like bad movies. I’ll definitely watch it once it hits streaming services.

I don’t have much of a floor for this, nor a befloored partner or father. Prosperity gospel dictates I’m not to have any fun, though I intend to send Nintendo $20 in the hopes that they’ll send me back some seeds from which to grow a small orchard, bootstrapping my millenial ass up into the middle-class like all that

Flew too close to the sun with the merch. Now here’s a fun thought: If she had someone create artwork based on her likeness, and said art included her tattoos, does anyone want to venture a guess as to whether or not Nintendo would have shot her a C&D and demanded any associated revenue? I saw this and thought of the Read more

It probably wouldn’t have to be that much bigger, but certainly bigger. I think it’d probably have to be something more shaped like a coffee table than the PS5 is, though. Read more
