Star Track S4E22: “To the Death” 

@taweret I still blame SGU getting canceled for my watching far too many seasons of that "Disney Cosplay Hour" (because I wanted to see more of Dr. Rush's character and figured maybe a Stargate might show up at any time), and I blame OUAT for watching as much as I did of the much worse "Batman Cosplay Hour" that was Gotham (because I'm an idiot and Hulu happily autoplayed from one to the other).

@highlandwolland @taweret It was so weird because it really did flip-flop most of the stuff from the other show, the writing was better and seemed to almost have an idea where it was going, the cast was worse but they were having a lot more fun, the production value was worse. It lasted only one season and ended on a cliffhanger that almost had you wanting more, where the other show should have only had one season and left you wanting less by the end.

@taweret Hey, Speed Force may be a cop, but at least it is not the Negative Force

@larrydavis @Jessicacrets @robotcarsley The chemicals were a step in the process of mastering access to Speed Force.

Also, I don't know how apocryphal it is, but I was under the impression Superman can access the speed force with a ton of effort/threat of death. I thought that was the comics canon explanation for Superman II type events where he speeds fast enough to reverse time; just ordinary speed force time travel he learned from the Flash.

@taweret People don't realize how fast and far fur suit technology has advanced in Boomer lifetimes. I do not believe this to be a coincidence. The first real Furry generation?

@Red @taweret I've been playing so much Sea of Thieves my Pirate Shanties Playlist is growing again and I've been following things like hurdy gurdy stars on YouTube. May need help. (Hey, oh, chicken on a raft.)

@Red @root I heard Khaleesi Smith is angry that Daenerys Jones wants to be called Khaleesi because that's what everyone called her at her old school, but it's K. Smith's *real* name, and Daenerys "Breaker of Chains" Cooper is teasing D. Jones she'll just have to settle for "Mother of Dragons" which no one currently wants.

@dreamsofcheese He sold out to be Target's Halloween Fursona, and then I think Target for bored with him and presumably violently murdered him with sporting goods

@Red Hmm, I know Discord Nitro (or Nitro Classic) makes it possible to use custom Emoji across servers, but I'd definitely p pay for it if it also dumped all those Emoji into my Mastodon instance for me 🤔

Speedy and Snarly 

I have now watched the most recent "Speedy and Snarly" car superheroes movie. It was exactly what I expected. Ridiculous. Mostly fun. It delivered physics breaking car stunts. You know, the usual.

8-bit Jazz 

@nolan Oops, I did not mean to disparage the effort that had gone in so far. Just the usual surprise that I thought it was an option already, as many of the low level loaders changed to support it already. I had been meaning to try it when I had a chance, but hadn't realized what state it was currently in.

@nolan Better webpack support for this seems like the big blocker. I'm surprised how many issues are still outstanding on it, as I thought it was something webpack was prioritizing months ago.

@NormalPopsicle @Red From what I saw, he just needed to find one instance where the admins spoke English as a first language and/or weren't dipshit "security experts" that were neither (but were TERFs). From what I've seen, Red might be just the sort of admin Wil needed. Maybe if Red did make a personal invite we might indeed see the communist enby furry side of Wil show up in the Fediverse.

@taweret I'd like to note that the Founders tend to favor Vorta of opposite gender to their preferred form. They serve the Founders in all ways. They serve at the pleasure of the Founders.

Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
