Someone in the bus playing a phone game with no headphones. Constantly being rewarded with blips and coins and magic sprinkles and long tallies being added up.

are there any traceroute easter eggs left? The Star Wars crawl text and Bad Horse lyrics both don't work anymore.

i hope they're not impossibe now, because someone needs to do one based on the Californians sketch

"It’s strange, isn’t it? The ideology of capitalism is that it is a system that generates immense abundance (so much stuff!). But in reality it is a system that relies on the constant production of scarcity.

This conundrum was first noticed back in 1804, and became known as the Lauderdale Paradox. Lauderdale pointed out that the only way to increase “private riches” (basically, GDP) was to reduce what he called “public wealth”, or the commons. To enclose things that were once free so that people have to pay in order to access them. To illustrate, he noted that colonialists would often even burn down trees that produced nuts and fruits so that local inhabitants wouldn’t be able to live off of the natural abundance of the earth, but would be forced to work for wages in order to feed themselves.

KnowYourMeme's video showed the first contact scene in Sonic again, and I forgot how blood-curdling Marsden's scream was, and how much of an overreaction it was to seeing a furry creature, shorter than him, with flat teeth. It wasn't a startle reaction, Sonic had enough time to chuckle and say "Meow?" Not that real cops don't panic like that, but when they do they shoot bullets, not darts.

any high schooler could have written a better scene. This movie was joyless from day 1, can't be saved.

Watched the first Detective Pikachu trailer again to compare it to Sonic's. Sure, the Pokemon designs are better, but also EVERYTHING in the trailer is better.

I'd say the main difference throughout is that Detective Pikachu's trailer demonstrates chemistry, while Sonic's trailer demonstrates awkwardness. If that's how the rest of the movie is, then they can't fix that by redesigning the character and chaining animators to their desks.

I lived in Korea and never once heard about the Korean People’s Association in Manchuria, an autonomous anarchist zone of 2 million people that only disintegrated because they were consistently attacked by China from the North and Japan from the South. This was in 1929. Moneyless, classless, stateless, gift economy based on mutual aid. It was all there.

I think I know what's going to happen. the new Sonic movie will be marketed so heavily, that by the time it's released, we'll be used to how it looks.

in 10 years there will be three sequels and a dozen of those CGI characters, and they'll make one of the female ones sexy, and fans will buy into it.

going to see endgame feels so much like homework. i hope to never see another superhero movie again after this one. i'm only going to this one because the last one ended with "fuck you, thanos is our president now and we all have to respect him"
