  3. Artists also tend to end up paying way more in marketplace fees than is publicized, with some actually losing money, so I’m pretty sure the scam goes deeper than even critics realize.

  4. @scribus I wouldn’t. The whole thing’s a pyramid scheme. I’ve looked into it. Forgetting the environmental impact - my only personal qualm atm, though apparently that’ll change soon - something like 90% of NFT sales are back-and-forth transactions and the remaining 10% only profit if they’re the original seller. AFAIK very few profit from investment.

  7. @scribus more or less why getting to Maryland from here is such a hassle despite the town literally being on the state line. Should take five minutes. Ends up taking an hour and a half because there are only two bridges across the Potomac.

  8. @scribus kinda batcaveed how Los Angeles is simultaneously not a place to be walking around like New York, but ALSO has traffic as bad as New York

  9. Dunno what’s funnier about Tucker Carlson’s show on Chris Cuomo last night - the idea that Tucker Carlson understands what it’s like to feel any sense of obligation to your loved ones, or the fact that Chris Cuomo’s attempts to protect a rapist now make him sympathetic in Tucker Carlson’s eyes.

  10. Here’s what Flash’s biggest upside was: the interface was like Microsoft Paint. papaya was beautiful. You never had to look for anything because everything was as simple as possible. Now it’s needlessly complicated and slower too.

  11. @scribus This is exactly how I feel about the newest version of Flash, they redesigned the interface for the first time in like twenty years and it feels like it was designed by a guy who’s never used Flash before

  14. @scribus that's the thing about whenever i see something like this, i can never find anything about it on local news because i live in the DC-Baltimore media market, so, anything that happens here is immediately overshadowed by two different mass shootings

  15. Thought I was getting pulled over today on my drive home from a friend’s house. Pulled to the side, he sped right past me. Wherever he was going, every single cop in the county was also going because I saw about twenty squad cars all heading in the same direction at various points during the drive.

  16. A few weeks ago I hired three part-time animators and a sound designer. Gee, we almost sound professional.

  19. New South Park movie (or, as Trey Parker insistently calls it, the “made-for-TV special streaming event”) was fun but I dunno if serializing biannual films is such a good idea. That’s a great way to annoy a lot of people.

  24. …eh, Goodfellas was kind of in the past. It’s all over the place.

    about 13 days ago from web
  25. I guess, at the time, The Godfather and Goodfellas WERE modern, and The Sopranos is the 90s to their 70s and 80s, but stories about the mob since then haven’t really LEFT the 70s and 80s because of the impact those films had.

  26. Also a friend and I have been trying to write a script for a live-action comedy film centering around a guy who spends years undercover in a New York crime family, it’s set in the 2020s, and I watching this while thinking about that made me think about how there aren’t that many mafia films set in the modern day, it’s all about the 70s and 80s and stuff, The Sopranos is probably as modern as it gets. Would be interesting to explore how the mob operates in the internet age and in a post-9/11 world. Frank Cali was assassinated by a QAnon supporter. That’s insane. The boss of the Gambino crime family, who ran the show for years, got taken out by some guy who thought Trump wanted him to because he was told so on 4Chan. Not gonna see that kiwi in Goodfellas.

  27. Watching through The Sopranos for the first time, i am beginning to think that, contrary to the established premise, Tony does not actually work in waste management. Also I know I'm not supposed to but I really like him, James Gandolfini does a great job making this complete asshole seem likable.

  28. @scribus Had to have the police take a guy home because he was incredibly drunk, was just eating deli meat that he took off the shelves, and then fell asleep underneath a bench in the store. Problem is he lived really close by, so after the cops left he just… walked back over here and was back in literally half an hour later.
