If you are not watching Strange New Worlds, you are missing out on the best Star Trek, and possibly the best episodic Sci-Fi ever made.

This cast has dynamics, chemistry, and development.

Leadership morals at every turn.

Empathetic stories.

Amazing writing.

And somehow lessons that have been consistently on time.

I do not tolerate dangerous, life-threatening anti-choice, misogynist, homophobic, racist, TERFy ideology masquerading as "opinion" and I will not be entertaining both-sidesisms about why, for instance, I should be condemned to death by an ectopic pregnancy.

Stole this from Reddit. Credit to Dreamworld_fireworks. This map is most likely to change but for now this is the most current one.

So a man who commits rape shouldn’t have “his life ruined over one mistake” but a woman who has consensual sex should’ve “been more responsible”?

Cool. Fuck you.

We have been conditioned by corporate news media and proprietary social media to react and comment to every sensational headline, every controversial news story immediately. Outrage boosts engagement, which brings in more money for these companies. Don’t play their game. And don’t feel like you have to do that here in the #fediverse. Sometimes - I daresay most of the time - the best thing to do is take time to process, understand, learn, and think before you say anything.

There's no place behind us in history that has the master key to what we're about to experience. We need to have the courage, creativity, & heart to envision a world better than has ever been created. We have to imagine it and do the work of creating it, because I guarantee you that those on the other end of the spectrum are doing exactly that.

Slavery but we can just arrest somebody on false pretenses and then get free labor forever? Well that's even better than the last time!
~
Completely controlling who gets to have children & when & how, but we can make it illegal rather than just frowned upon? And we can deputize gun-toting neighbors to go round them up? Well that's just Jim Dandy, ain't it?
~
Tracking protesters by photographing who's there and then hunting them down later using mobile data? Well hell, we don't even got to get them at the march then, do we? Who'da thunk it?!

They may not believe in science, but they're not stupid. They may not seem to have morals or ethics, but they definitely do. The idea that this is all just happening at random without anyone controlling it is the worst kind of liberal conceit. Worse than conceit - it's actively dangerous to underestimate enemies with this many minds, that much power, & the inertia of history behind them.

The Elysian Kingdom...I have to say...that was NOT the ending I was expecting.

I might just rank that one right up there with The Inner Light because of how much it moved me emotionally.

Don't be like me and get stuck in a months-long loop of waking up and going to bed with nothing but work on your mind. Do something that gives you life.

Trippy AI-generated video for a trippy song. Can't get it outta my head.

Playing with Dall-E Mini and wound up with a (nine of them, actually)

Anyone play any of the games on ?

I already played the 1st two games, and just got the 3rd one. If you're interested, know this: it's far harder than the first two, and noticeably so. More of the same basic mechanics with a few variations, still the same witty dialogue & wildly easy bosses to offset the severely more difficult levels.

So ... whatever happened to Iceman and Firestar? They don't seem to be getting much work nowadays.

James Cameron on why T-1000 was a cop 

From a 2010 book “The Futurist: The Life and Films of James Cameron” by Rebecca Keegan:

'"The Terminator films are not really about the human race getting killed of by future machines. They’re about us losing touch with our own humanity and becoming machines, which allows us to kill and brutalize each other,” he says. “Cops think all non-cops as less than they are, stupid, weak, and evil. They dehumanize the people they are sworn to protect and desensitize themselves in order to do that job.”'

It always amazes me how many don’t know that the Nazi’s model was all the genociding, slavery, apartheid, and other general mass murder of the US’ settler-colonial history of violence. Many think it came out of nowhere, when in reality many in the regime looked at model and thought: “Bet we can do this here and do it better.”
