Banana Fish is getting a TV anime, from MAPPA! I've heard great things about the manga, looking forward to this. crunchyroll.com/anime-news/201

Managed to get a ticket to A Silent Voice last minute. Loved the manga, I hope KyoAni doesn't screw it up.

It's just really fucked up people look at self-driving trucks, automation, and go "ah, this is a bad thing because it puts people out of work. it is the technology that is the problem" instead of realizing that it's our insane mentality that you have to work 40 hours in order to deserve living that will hurt people in the end

I finished NieR: Automata today and haven't posted my opinions on it yet both because a) they're not fully formed yet and b) everybody's gonna hate me.

Saw Blade Runner 2049. Overall I liked it! Incredible, imposing cinematography and production design plus some pretty interesting expansions on the themes of the original. But like every damn spectacle movie nowadays, it's an hour too long and full of extraneous scenes, set pieces, and characters.

Watched original Blade Runner & Blackout 2022 with some buds, now onto 2049!

In the US, legal case names in federal civil forfeitures are formulated thus: "United States v. <item being seized>".

This leads to some entertaining case titles. Particularly well-known are "United States v. Approximately 64,695 Pounds of Shark Fins" and "United States v. Article Consisting of 50,000 Cardboard Boxes More or Less, Each Containing One Pair of Clacker Balls".

Fixed Ani-Gamers on Opera Mini and UC Browser. Always interesting how much easier it is to progressively enhance when you start with it rather than go backwards and try to graft it on later.

I just got that sweet Symmetra Dragon skin but it's wasted on me since I never play as her.

to give you an idea of how bad the air is in the bay area right now, the SF Chronicle just posted this photo. that blood-red orb poking through the smoke is the sun

Liking the new Kino's Journey well enough. Still seems like basically "more Kino," which is fine by me.

Coming off three days of the Internet Archive's annual October party/library conference. The job's not always easy but it's still wild that I work at a place with such an ambitious vision.

Hello again, Mastodon. How do we make you into something people who don't understand what is wrong with Twitter would move to?
