Is Sagira an option for permanent Ghost voice? Because I'd love to replace "Nolan North pretends to be Dinklebot" voice, personally.

I know it's been suggested before, but why aren't the DC superhero TV folks in Hollywood North (that mystical Land of Vancouver) just given charge of the movies, too? "Crisis on Earth-X" was the Justice League movie I wanted this year: Nazi punching, a fun and diverse cast, some feels.

It's so very apparent in the CW/DC crossovers, but why is the Arrow team's sound design so deficient compared to the rest of the "Berlantiverse"? Supergirl's production team: loud, clear, easy to hear. Arrow's production team: mumblecore, with filters that wash out sibilants to the point that everyone sounds like they are whispering with a lisp.

Why isn't there an easy way to watch YouTube subscriptions in chronological order any more?

Late to finally watching it, but Kong: Skull Island really was brilliant to recontextualize Kong into a Vietnam era ensemble movie. It's about the last era the undiscovered island concept works (and the script plays into that, hello LANDSAT), and can play against American jingoism in interesting ways.

I was reflecting on my current personal ambivalence towards pronouns used in reference to me. One maybe surprising thing I realized is that "Max" is short and memorable enough that it often feels like its own pronoun. I realized I hear "Max" a lot more than any pronoun, and it takes extra effort to strongly gender it or otherwise make it hurtful. There may not be a useful general takeaway from that, but I realize its a rare phenomenon and maybe useful to be aware of it when thinking beyond me.

That last bit about the galactic space olympics is because of course EE is coaching the next generation of the animated Mighty Ducks, the super powered anthro ducks that are mostly evil. Because we all know from many other Disney properties that evil is a recessive trait that often skips generations.

Stupid movie universe pitch: So inter-connected movie universes are a big deal, no? Here's an idea: The Mighty Ducks League Universe. Each original Mighty Duck kid is now down and out like Emilio Estevez (EE) in D1 and each in a different city must teach a new generation of kids. Big build up to match ups between teams every couple movies. EE turns out to be the big bad pulling strings behind the scenes and the final boss in a galactic space olympics hockey jam.

I clicked the CW button to discuss a TV show on The CW, because of course I did. 😸

Also, sorry I wasn't using a macron for Long E (ē), but I am on a mobile keyboard and had already committed to schwa in my paste buffer.

I guess there probably is a split between if E should be Long E or schwa. I don't think Long E works right, but on thinking about it, I realize some probably prefer that too. Interesting.

ə/əm/əir is also not an option on pronoun.is, but should be
