Episode 4x10 of #FearTheWalkingDead “Close Your Eyes” always gets to me. Such a good depiction of two troubled minds facing off against each other. Such great performances by #AlyciaDebnamCarey (Alicia) and #AlexaNisenson (Charlie). Nobody else in the episode (except some walkers obviously).

I love it when, while rewatching a season and knowing a new character will have at least three layers to it in the story, you notice that the actress, Alexa Nisenson in this case, puts all three layers in her character from the start. She’s so talented.

Question for folks who use screen-readers:

On a website or document, how would you prefer people to format a logical progression, for example in a software menu?

I often use the "greater than" symbol, like so: File > New > Text Document.

I've used in the past the arrow mad of two characters "->", but I suspect that might be appalling for screen-readers...

Which one(s) of these options do you prefer? Or something else as a reply if you want.

Boosts appreciated.

In my layman’s model of human social interactions there are four layers beyond being a hermit: there’s “existing” in society by going to shops, saying thank you, phoning for appointments, etc. Then there’s talking to “acquaintances” like people at work, hobby or sports who may ask how your weekend has been so you can say “fine”. Then there are the two mythological layers of “friends” and “relationships” that are yet to be researched, but allegedly have deeper connections. I think I’m always operating on that “acquaintances” level, even when talking to friends.

Gotten to the season three episode History Rhymes of the #Defiance rewatch and seeing #StephanieLeonidas and #KatieDouglas put in such great performances in the same episode (and of the same character, Irisa) is a joy to watch. It’s a flash back of the building of the father-daughter relationship between Irisa and Nolan.

Stephanie Leonidas’s performance of Irisa’s breakdown in the Defiance episode The Beauty of Our Weapons is so well acted. She truly is one of the best and Defiance should have lasted beyond those three seasons.

What’s great about #Friendica (and similar fediverse software) is that you can go to another server, e.g. to look at a forum’s page, and still be logged in with your home server’s account. This way you can like, comment, subscribe, the way you would expect. Something I miss in Mastodon and Pleroma.

Felicity Jones plays Dolly, the bride to be, who we see on the morning of her wedding, a morning which seems to drag on a bit. We get to see flashbacks of how she met Joseph… but it’s not Joseph she’s marrying. Felicity does great justice to the complexities of the bride’s feelings.

Ellie Kendrick plays the younger sister Kitty and as is common with Ellie makes her an interesting and full character who despite not being the central character of the story we’re being told, is at least the central character of her own story. That’s why I think she’s a great actress, she makes someone like Kitty way more than a forgettable supporting character.

It was quite a nice surprise seeing Ciara Bravo in the season five episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: A Life Spent.

Reached the Dove Cameron episodes in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: second half of season five. Right from the get go her character (Ruby) is something special. She’s a rare talent that knows how to make a character feel very complete and very real, despite being very unreal. I’m so happy to see her!

Interesting to find out that planting new forests only creates carbon sinks if you allow the forests to become over 30 years old. For the first 15 years a new forest releases more CO2 than it absorbs. I feel that’s something we’re not being told when they’re talking about sustainable harvesting and farming of trees.

#FediTip: Occasional reminder that you can’t track hashtags (yet) on the fediverse, like you can on Tumblr. E.g. if you have a Mastodon list listening for #FediTips but no-one on your server follows me (quite likely), you won’t see this post.

If you’re an organisation depending on receiving questions or requests, get your audience to also @-mention someone on your server.

There’s this super interesting BBC science documentary where a professor finds the genetic basis for being evil, then finds that he has these genes himself, then decides that this proves that these genes don’t always manifest that way, then his whole family going like “Well…”.

Rewatching my #Logan blu-ray starting with #DafneKeen’s improvised audition tape since it is amazing. It is my theory that this is also the version they used in the film. Logan is different from other superhero films since it’s not people reciting cool oneliners at each other, but it’s really character based. I believe that in one of the making-of clips someone remarks that the reason Hugh Jackman puts in such a great performance in his final outing as Wolverine is that he was at serious risk of being outperformed by an 11yo. He does and still is.

So NFTs are essentially bookmarks, but way more expensive? And where a feature of bookmarks is that you can update them if needed and that more people can bookmark the same thing, a feature of NFTs seems to be that you can’t.

Irisa is really one of the most interesting characters ever. Yes, I’m watching #Defiance again…

Read quotes today of a report that a country, presumably the UK, says that its increased reports of racism are a good thing, since it means that there’s an increased expectation of equality and that must come from things being better than before. Also that people who think they’re disadvantaged by racism may have their own culture partially to blame.

I mean, that must be fake, right?

Nope, I’ve confirmed this is real. Page 11. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-report-of-the-commission-on-race-and-ethnic-disparities
