Philosophy, Religion & Society / Vote Bernie Out In 2024
« on: May 16, 2020, 04:09:28 AM »
If he isn't dead by then, anyway. This should make totallackey happy, but I am unequivocally renouncing any support for Bernard. I mostly gave up on him after he endorsed rapist Joe Biden, but missing a rather important amendment vote is the proverbial straw.

Also Dianne Feinstein can get fucked. Good job making Rand Paul look like the sane one in congress, dipshits. Guess it is time to go full Libertarian or AnCap.

Neolibs, shitlibs, (basically anyone who identifies as a liberal) don't @ me and also get fucked.

Arts & Entertainment / Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker
« on: December 20, 2019, 06:33:00 AM »
edit - Saddam started the unhidden spoiler train so there are spoilers below.


Before Saddam repeats the complaints he read about the movie as if they were his own opinion, I am here to tell you it is worth a watch.

If you were butthurt over Episode VIII, you will probably still be butthurt, but this one at least isn't like that one (even though that one was actually fine tbh).

This one is a nice predictable mashup of Episodes I through VIII all rolled into one. It has everything: lore / nostalgia / fan service, a little bit of originality, but it all comes back home at the end of the day. There really isn't a whole lot more than that. How many ways can you really tell stories about ships blowing up shit and people fighting with laser swords amirite?

But Rotten Tomatoes has a bad "critic" score and a really good audience score. That means 420.69% of the time it is an enjoyable thing to watch.

Technology & Information / should junker waste money?
« on: December 12, 2019, 08:46:04 PM »
After having saved so much money buying a reasonably spec'd gaming PC, I want to throw some money away. Should I buy the Valve Index kit?

Pros:
- It is amazing.
- It would force Rushy to buy one.

Cons:
- $999 for a box that straps to your head with a couple fancy joy cons.

Arts & Entertainment / Hellboy
« on: April 13, 2019, 12:33:52 AM »
So I just watched this. It was bad. As in, not good.

But also it's worth watching because of what's her face from resident evil, the Asian guy from Lost, and the guy who bangs Sandra Oh in sideways.

The guy playing Hellboy is actually what I hate the least. The preview soured me since I wanted the Perlman/Del Toro vision to reach finality. But fuck man, it's just not good.

It's all CGI shit, lacking the absolutey human cinematic perfectness of this scene:



Anyway, it sucks but Hellboy himself is good. Probably worth a watch. Two weeks until End Game so focus on that.

Arts & Entertainment / Episode IX

I just watched the trailer. I think I have forgotten everything that has happened up to this point. The trailer didn't make a lot of sense.

Suggestions & Concerns / On the Notion of Removing Attachments
« on: April 10, 2019, 07:52:59 PM »
It is 2019 and no one uses attachments in posts for anything useful. The vast majority are one-post drivebys from people too dumb to embed an image or link a document. BBC handles streamlining media into posts just fine, so the redundancy is pointless. Removing attachments may even curb the mouthiest of mouth breathers from shitposting since they lack the capacity to learn to use the [img] tag.

If it is universal and also potentially affects avatars then we can notify people to switch to using a link instead of an upload/attachment. I don't know if this is the case in SMF.
