I gotta stop trusting cinephiles about video quality

I bemoaned not being able to find 1080p stuff for a number of things cos I was convinced by The Community that they’d look bad on my teevee via roku box

And you know what?

I can’t tell the damn difference between 1080 and 480 aside from the aspect ratio

Fucking ludicrous

@casey [1990s stand up comic voice] why do we call 'em megapixels if the pixels keep gettin' smaller? amirite???

i stopped caring about or paying attention to megapixels years ago. maybe my vision is going, but i don't see any difference even though the numbers are much bigger. diminishing returns

succulent news: snake flowers update 

Flowering snake plants, a week later: I think the flower buds have grown a tiny bit longer, but they haven't opened yet. They continue to exude sticky goo. Either their dusty scent has gotten a lot weaker, or I've gotten used to it.
