  5. George Soros created covid-19 so that Donald Trump would get blamed for it so that Hillary Clinton would be elected President so that Obama can reign supreme as America’s emperor, and Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is there to distract Bernie Sanders and now Hillary Clinton is able to move on in the presidential campaign unimpeded.

    • I'm not even sure some of these changes are "problems" and not more like "just an obvious place to maybe recast for a start," really?

      • @scribus the sentiment is nice and all but working from the societal equivalent of an F to a C- and calling it a day is not the big move they must think it is

      • @scribus oh yeah that too, I was thinking about the industry at large but also individual people saying "I didn't know this racist thing I actively engaged in was racist" is something I don't often buy

    • I know that they're pulling an episode of Community for implied blackface, and without even reading into it I know the exact scene they're talking about and I sincerely do not believe that a single person with any stake in societal progression watched that scene and thought it was actually a problem

      • @tiff Similarly, I’m pretty sure pulling an episode of Golden Girls is not especially high on BlackLivesMatters’ priority list.

      • @mrmattimation I dunno how far exactly I'd go to defend these sorts of jokes but pretty much every example I can think of is pretty obviously a subversive criticism *of* blackface. Obviously I am not the person who can/should decide if that makes it more okay, but I feel like removing these scenes is stifling discussions of anti-racism if anything. Like just put the disclaimer in front like WB and Disney or whatever

      • @mrmattimation I would prefer it for future reference if POC actors got to voice POC characters, especially in the current industry where they aren't getting the same treatment or opportunities as white people; but I absolutely agree that this current wave of networks removing TV episodes with instances of racism and actors conveniently regretting voicing POC roles all of a sudden is largely posturing in the absence of actual willingness to, you know, hire and support and pay POC. I also don't think it's a particularly far reach to suggest that companies are just pretending this is what activists are asking for as some sort of psyop, since it will most likely push the needle back in their favour (i.e. still not hiring, supporting and paying POC)

      • @mrmattimation The rep for Corona keeps blocking constituents on Twitter, I've heard it's unconstitutional

        about 13 days ago in context
      • @scribus iirc the ruling was that government accounts (which includes Trump’s personal account, due to some records act that encompasses both his and Obama’s Twitter history) are public forums and therefore cannot block people, but PRIVATE political accounts are not. IE, the state party can block users because the party is not affiliated with the government, and “campaign accounts” (which most Reps tend to use instead of their office accounts) can do so as well.

      • @adiwan Thank god Tolkien didn't live to work in the medium. Then again, maybe "The Hobbit" would justify three movies...

        about 14 days ago in context
      • @scribus The Hobbit is a short book but it compresses time a lot and a lot and things are not very well told because they come somewhat out of nowhere. 3 movies is a bit much, I can agree that 2 would be very fine.
        Reading Inu Yasha to the end was easier than Lord of the Rings. I HATE all those lengthy scenic descriptions in LOTR and my brain fades out too quickly to get past them. LOTR would work a lot better as a comic because those would be held to a brief instance and not minutes and multiple pages. To be frank: Inu Yasha has also big pacing issues. It could have been easily cut in half without losing too much of its substance. Towards the end it got DBZ-like when it comes to stretching the content and delay the inevitable.

    • Cops were called on one of my employees today. He’s autistic, so he makes a lot of noises when he’s alone and somebody heard and thought he was arguing with someone. Cops showed up, immediately decided the black kid was the reason they were here instead of trying to ask questions. Fortunately we were able to explain the situation before it got out of hand but god damn that cherryes me off.

    • New Pokémon Snap? I'm gladly waiting for all the reviews. Especially I'm waiting for all the reviewers and people bashing it for being too repetitive, short, and unoriginal. The N64 game can be played through within a few hours, and even then there was barely any varying gameplay beyond gushing over 3-dimensional Pokémon jumping around and abusing them with throwables. I expect the new one being similar in scope feature-wise. The right evolution of the game has to be at least a semi-open world with day-and-night cycles and a focus on stealth and exploration, like a real animal and nature photographer.

    • Especially since “digital animation” before the 2000s required very expensive custom IBM PCs - now studios just buy iMacs in bulk and put them on desks and it works fine. Every step of the process, from layout to colors to CGI to even editing and dubbing, can be done in people’s homes now.

      • @scribus There is PRECEDENT for something like that, bits of I think The Lion King and Pocahontas were animated remotely after an earthquake temporarily shut down Disney’s Glendale campus, but there’s no way it would be able to be coordinated on a large scale long term basis pre-digital era. Al Jean said that he encouraged staff at the Simpsons’ relatively new in-house animation studio to work from home well before California’s stay-at-home orders and work wasn’t slowed in the slightest in spite of that. Could not have happened twenty years ago.
