The two shows where I would gladly play any role are Twelfth Night and Rocky Horror Picture Show, and that's how I know I'm bisexual

ah yes, my favorite genre of media: white gamer in front of shelf of nerd stuff lecturing the viewer about a theory

thinking a lot recently about that bible story where a rich guy asks jesus how to get into heaven and jesus is like "give away your money and stop being rich" and the rich guy is like *teeth sucking sound*

Sorry just catching up on my email... @Pixley Derek and Layla? For real???

I love the mastodon image captioning feature because there are a lot of good uses even for sighted users

- when federation / the other instance / your router fails & the image won't load

- explaining visual jokes while "keeping the medium intact"

- naming a visual symbol you /think/ people will know about but maybe not, so they can look it up & read more about it

- noting 'what to look for' when it's unclear

- translating an image in another language while still letting it speak for itself

Huey Lewis & The News released an album yesterday called Weather, which is only the second in their discography named after a news segment. 40 years of The News and they've only gotten to Sports and Weather.
