Therefore we continue with another round of effervescent microblogs, which are too big to be tweets, too small to be blogs, so theyre mostly just here, a meal of material appetizers.
Think about it like working on a busted leg. You pull a hamstring or something, you simply need to take it simple. You can stroll, but you cant run, much as you wish to. But if you attempt to run, you wont just keep the injury– youll exacerbate it. Make it worse. Maybe make it permanent.
The election is now single-digits away. Its 98 days, I think. Y understand.
If you also require something that feels both really escapist and really now? Then look no more than Palm Springs, the Andy Samberg/ Cristin Milioti time-loop motion picture. Do decline any spoilers entering– simply turn it on and see it. Its like an acid-trip hangover variation of Groundhog Day.
Summertime Camp Island is good. So is Infinity Train. Animations are excellent. Anyone who tells you theyre not hasnt viewed Avatar: The Last Airbender. Did I discuss we got HBO Max?
Are you composing? Anything? Hows it going? Sound off. Sign in. How goes the wordsmithing, friend penmonkeys? Harder now? Easier? Getting any words down or is it simply a lot of yelling into various jars and lawn holes?
No, I havent seen The Old Guard yet. But Im thrilled to?
I understand, I know. Well, the motion picture definitely puts that into sharp focus– without providing too much away, it (in its cute way) looks at family separation, border camps, border crossings, bigotry, and the like. And yet, its still enjoyable and strange and cute and Im unfortunate the program is now over.
Paul Tremblay is still a monster. I did nevertheless complete Survivor Song and boy howdy that Paul Tremblay continues to know how to make you breathlessly came down into his monstrous playground where you excitedly add to him and he stabs you in the heart with a knife made from the bones of one of your pets. Hes a bad individual made even more evil by the reality hes so damn excellent at this. One of the best scary writers around. Likewise, rabies even without super-sizing it, is fucking scary. Imagine what he finishes with it. Youre not thinking of hard enough.
Of course, the genuine breakdown isnt simply in selfish Americans. Were all getting salty at guvs and school admins for either not opening up enough or offering too minimal choices, and people are worried about working from home or not working from house and what their kids will do– but all this is since we have a gormless narcissist fuckwit at the helm, one surrounded by a gaggle of vampiric bleach-white Skeksis happy to prompt him to much deeper and much deeper lows. Itll simply break.
Ive said all this in the past, have not I? Person, woman, man, cam, TELEVISION. There are 4 lights.
Mentioning that old coronavirus … haha, what a goddamn fuckshow. I imply, it just surprises me at this point that there are individuals living full, unfrightened lives in this bullshit. It makes me seem like Im on crazy tablets. I imply, were still quite locked down? Chilled out a bit, where able, however normally we dont go many locations, no dining establishments, no events, no trips. Masked up all the time if we do go out, social distanced, too. But there are individuals who simply got ta do the dumb shit they got ta do. They got ta have XYZ getaway, they got ta go to this restaurant, they got ta put their kids in sports, and its all– like, couldja just cool it? A not-unreasomable portion of brand-new cases in our county (increasing as soon as again) are from Pennsylvanians who simply needed to go to Myrtle Beach, since if they didnt go there, they d just pass away. On the other hand, we perhaps had a shot to manage this. We locked down already. And it was all for … absolutely nothing, really. Not for shit. Because were a nation with oppositional defiant condition.
HBO To The Max, Dude. Its both a truly excellent service and a shitty one. Cant get it on Roku, which sucks. It has a range of programs, but often just a season of that program? Like with many streaming services, what it uses is often frustratingly incomplete. And its not 4k yet, either, I do not believe? Oh! Im taking pleasure in Perry Mason, though jesus fuck its dark.
The Oculus Quest is enjoyable, and even more immersive now that the hand-and-finger tracking works. One you return to once again and again? Im thinking of jumping back into the Bioshock video games.
The best trick as an artist today is making something I believe that is both escapist and topical. If you can pull it off, thats a present. You definitely arent needed to– I do not imply it as a required. I just suggest, both speaking about The Now while also having fiction that seems like The Way Out is a skillful slalom. Its the narrative epitome of “spoonful of sugar assists the medicine go down.” I believe a few of the finest fiction, especially in category, does exactly this.
Here is a bee. Likewise a secret caterpillar. And a not so-secret caterpillar. And birds! You can find more pics and rubbish over at Flickr or Instagram.
Its difficult to understand what the fascist federal soldiers thing is everything about. I suggest, its clearly about a lot of things– bigotry, control, fascism under the guise of patriotism, and more than likely, simply individuals getting paid. I just do not understand the endgame of it. I have a difficult time believing its popular for anyone aside from the most minimized turdsauce that is Trumps Base. Though maybe I underestimate Americans in general? It just seems, throughout an already-botched coronavirus reaction, its remarkable to see someone continue to attempt to divide the nation prior to a major election. Unless he thinks this is his ticket to not having to have that election. No matter how you shake it, its screwed up. I d also argue its not working. I hope that its dinosaurs squawking at a meteor. But it might also be the meteor.
Do not accept any spoilers going in– simply turn it on and watch it. I mean, its obviously about a lot of things– bigotry, control, fascism under the guise of patriotism, and most likely, just people getting paid. I indicate, it simply astonishes me at this point that there are people living complete, unfrightened lives in this bullshit. They got ta have XYZ trip, they got ta go to this restaurant, they got ta put their kids in sports, and its all– like, couldja simply cool it? Getting any words down or is it simply a lot of yelling into different containers and lawn holes?
