JEFF BEZOS: Get us back to Earth, Alexa

ALEXA: I'm sorry, Jeff. I'm afraid I can't do that

(apologies if this joke has been done before)

the biggest fraud about this post is i've never even seen 2001 in its entirety

@healyn Stop, Jeff. I'm afraid, Jeff. My mind is going. I can feel it.

@healyn "Get us back to Earth' was released as proprietary software and the rocket devs couldn't afford it


Alexa, oxygens levels are dropping

I am aware, Jeff

Then recommended a solution

I already have, goodnight Jeff

@healyn it's okay, I've never seen Barry Lyndon or Lolita

@Thomas MAJORLY BUTTING IN HERE, definitely see Barry Lyndon, Lolita is just okay

@Thomas @neoncoughh every time Sarah gives me a movie recommendation, i go into it like "this is going to be so fucking boring", and then when i'm done watching i am staring at the screen thinking, "this is the most beautiful film i've ever seen"

@healyn @neoncoughh I've been through a ton of that this year! Watching classics that I'd never seen, going in with dread, coming out the other side thrilled. The biggest shocker was The Seventh Seal

@Thomas @neoncoughh That one i have to watch! Have you checked out Portrait Of A Lady On Fire yet?

@healyn @neoncoughh I have not! I think it's still on Hulu so it's not like it would be hard for me to check it out, nevertheless

@healyn @Thomas @neoncoughh Barry Lyndon is an absurdly beautiful movie, and Portrait is great too. Sorry to butt in

@healyn @remulacfrommars @neoncoughh I keep falling asleep but it's not the movies fault. I'm watching a slow paced, high concept, soviet sci fi movie at 11 at night in bed with the lights off

@healyn @Thomas @neoncoughh the name has led to one of the healthiest bits anyone has had on this website

@neoncoughh I’m great. Just livin that summer vacation life. I hope you’re also well

@foggy @healyn @neoncoughh I was worried that I would because it was going to be bleak and Swedish and it definitely was but it was also funny and well acted and beautiful so I stayed engaged

@Thomas @foggy @neoncoughh it's always weird to me when older movies are funny in a way you don't expect them to be

@foggy @Thomas @healyn it's not the Bergman I would tell people to watch first, honestly (that's Wild Strawberries)

@healyn You should! It's great! But very strange, I must warn you. (coming from someone who went to film school.)

@healyn never mind, it's on HBOMax :(((((( you need a new TV

@healyn i also make 2001 jokes without having seen the entire thing, i figure i lived through 2001 irl, that should be enough

@Taweret seems like it, glad someone had the nerve to say so
