OK: how about Sunday evening at Cafe Mogador in the East Village for a Friend Camp/Mastodon meet-up. Should I make a reservation (will 7:30 work for everyone?) Who is in? @ranjit@aparrish@janelastname@ingrid ...?
today feels incredibly confusing to me (it being a thursday and also a federal holiday; and also, me being a person that does not work in an office and get emails about upcoming holidays). Like...how have i gone so long in life and not noticed a holiday can fall smack in the middle of a week???!
But it is sort of a surprise. Last year Veteran's Day was on Wednesday but we were in quarantine hell so whatever. In 2019, it was on Monday and 2018 Sunday but celebrated on Monday
i watched Malignant (lol) and now I want to see the Seattle Underground—should i go to Seattle too just to go on a Seattle Underground tour? (Current plans are SF and Portland and then back to the east coast)
i think what annoys me the most are the people who are credulous for the sake of an argument. Sorry to break the news that Bina48 is not becoming conscious anytime soon and it's a little ridiculous to talk about that project as something more futuristic than say, barbra streisand's cloned dogs
trying to write a piece about AI that says something new about AI and it's incredible how stuck in 2014 the conversation is: chatbots, singularity, Sophia the robot, biased algorithms etc... the references, the arguments—all of it is just the same old shit that's a few years away from becoming retro
one very underrated aspect of it being 2021, is it’s now possible watch comedy tv shows and not hear racist homophobic mean-spirited bullshit (that was never even ever funny but just there to shock people??)
this one is really really good. Witty and cute and absurd (and not mean!!) I needed something chill and delightful and this is just that.
i've seen people comment on the small messy house in this movie — as opposed to McMansions in kids movies now — and that feels like an extension of the general kindness of the movie. The house is real and approachable — not aspirational or too good for you.
watching this for the first time in forever and blown away but just how kind this movie is. I want movies now that are kind and original like this and not just ironic pastiche reverse-engineered reconstructions like Stranger Things.
