"Alright, we're facing an army of romans, vikings and pirates." JFC I love this ridiculous show it is the best
So at this point as a Netflix user so behind the network airing by quite a bit, I watch Supergirl for what it has been and could be, I watch Legends of Tomorrow for the everything about it, and I watch Flash and Arrow to make sure I'm ready for the crossover event.
Because this is so, so indicative of how capitalism and patriarchy are deeply entwined. It's basically "Hey, you know that thing that was great for us personally? That thing that led to the rapes? Let's do a lot more of that, only let's also make money off of it." 2/2
I don't wanna piss on the MeFi discussion happening, but there's a quote in the linked article https://www.metafilter.com/176314/An-Oral-History-of-Golds-Gym that I think deserves its own discussion: "Gold eventually returned to Southern California to find that the original Muscle Beach had disappeared in part due to a scandal involving the arrests of five bodybuilders on rape charges in 1958.
Determined to re-create the congenial vibe, Gold purchased two lots on Pacific Avenue in Venice in 1965." 1/2
At Cedar Point for my birthday, and of course I knew I was at a theme park, but when I bought a ten dollar Budweiser that's when I KNEW I was at a theme park
In entirely other news, I have been trying this new way of sitting down https://www.metafilter.com/175918/Curvy-on-the-bottom-and-straight-on-top , updates as events warrant (which they probably never will tbh?)
Sudden uptick of followers (which you know, means like five people), so either MeFi had another thread on Masto I missed or there's just a whole lot more people, and based on the local timeline blowing up lately a lot earlier in the day I'm guessing the latter?
On my third TMBG album of the night, and the world doesn't look near so sour as it did a few hours ago
another for the file of marrying a different generation: my partner has no idea who roseanne roseannadanna is
Do homeopathy believers get their fish oil by just drinking seawater or what
spent pretty much all day yesterday trying to unlock the bootloader on my phone so i can install lineageos. about the only thing I have to show for it at the moment is that the thing's not a total brick, just somewhat less functional than when I started...
Also now Swiftkey is requiring Google login, so I'm on the market for a new keyboard app. Bonus if it's on fdroid
So I guess I like fennel now
Our cat keeps telling me it's dinnertime. She peddles in lies.
After stumbling through interactions on our France trip, trying to more regularly listen to RFI and France 24 to keep my brain exercised in listening to French. Just caught a piece on Monsanto; it had never occurred to me that the obvious way for French people to pronounce "Roundup" is "roondoop," and I think that is fantastic
domain registered. fastmail account active. now: the slow slog of updating a million accounts, notifying friends and family of the new address, dl'ing things I want to keep. Man, when I registered that gmail address in the bright optimistic days of 200?, I did not realize how much work I was creating for 2018 me to get out from under the juggernaut
one nice thing about the trip was being in a time zone where the world cup games were at an hour it was reasonable to enjoy at a bar. i would get some judgment from work colleagues if i took my lunch at 10am to have a few pints and cheer against the colonizers though
happy to be home. Lyon is a super cool city, and I'll miss the view from the apartment we stayed in, but happy to be home all the same
