- Collection of short-short (under 10m) horror(?) flicks on Netflix. None of these are the least bit frightening. Friendship Bracelet: Obvious but not terrible. Could've been made into a real movie. ★★★☆☆ CTRL+ALT+DEL: Shitty "darkweb"/"VR is real" shit with crappy puzzles like a Rubik's Cube of skulls. Film school project with no talent. ★☆☆☆☆ Incommodium: Shitty … Continue reading "What I'm Watching: Don't Watch This"Read More »
- Yes, OK, show for little girls. But He-Man was awesome, Boris Vallejo & Robert E Howard brought to life, and classic She-Ra wasn't bad, glossy-looking but often smarter than the main series; not having Orko made it better by default. I can't stand the art style of this new show, though. Everyone looks stupid, like … Continue reading "What I'm Not Watching: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power"Read More »
- Darkest Days, by Stabbing Westward: "I am not your savior, I am just as fucked as you. I cannot save you, I cannot even save myself!" Stabbing Westward Gravity Kills Broken, by Nine Inch Nails Fixed, by Nine Inch NailsRead More »
- I'm as amused by Ryan Reynolds, middle-aged comedy/action hero, as any other unfrozen caveman would be, but this "Poke Mon Detective Pikachu" thing leaves me with many questions. The big ones are: Why is it "Poke Mon" instead of "Poke Man"? Are they not men? Are they Devo? I seriously saw that second "o" as … Continue reading "Poke Mon Questions"Read More »
- Updating software annoys me. I like Janie's Red Queen metaphor, a constant chase that gets nowhere, but you have to keep up. Updating software is utterly pointless if the old stuff still works, but if you don't then everything breaks. If you give a person a program, you will frustrate them for a day. If … Continue reading "Mature Programming Environment"Read More »
- Chicken 5 Release Chicken 5 Roadmap Chicken 4 to 5 Porting Guide It hasn't shown up in MacPorts yet, so I pulled down the tarball and did: % make PLATFORM=macosx PREFIX=/usr/local/chicken5 … % sudo make PLATFORM=macosx PREFIX=/usr/local/chicken5 install Then added to .profile, before the MacPorts parts of my paths: export CHICKEN5_HOME="/usr/local/chicken5" export MANPATH="$MANPATH:$CHICKEN5_HOME/share/man" export PATH="$PATH:$CHICKEN5_HOME/bin" … Continue reading "Don't Increment Your Chickens Before They're Hatched"Read More »
- by James A. Lindsay, Peter Boghossian and Helen Pluckrose Search ahead to "Part V" to see the paper summaries and reviewer comments! These are ridiculous, and should never, ever have been accepted. “This is a wonderful paper – incredibly innovative, rich in analysis, and extremely well-written and organized given the incredibly diverse literature sets and … Continue reading "Academic Grievance Studies and the Corruption of Scholarship"Read More »

- Shopping, I went past the cheap videogames aisle, and saw the MyArcade handhelds and retro consoles were out, and marked down (Xmas season starts in November!). So I grabbed the $17 8-bit Bad Dudes one; there are vastly better ones, with 16-bit or better consoles, but those cost real money. It's kind of fat, rounded … Continue reading "What I'm Playing: MyArcade Data East Gamer V"Read More »
- "I was actually tired of sword-and-sorcery as the genre then existed. I admired the work of C.L. Moore, Leigh Brackett, and Fritz Leiber and continued to respect the vitality and invention of Howard, but I had little time for the likes of Tolkien and Lewis, whom I regarded as bad popular children's writers whose moral … Continue reading "Sword and Sorcery"Read More »
