I've been thinking a lot about the last episode. It does this thing (like most of my favorite series finales) where it leaves everything open: not everything is explained, the characters still have things to do, and the audience is left wondering.
I think the common Western perspective on works of fiction is that we need closure. But we don't, actually. The characters and the world will exist beyond our experience of it, so there's no need to "wrap everything up" for the audience.
Also, to be clear, creators shouldn't leave things open for the sake of the audience or in hopes that they'll be able to make more in that universe. The work should end the way its author feels it needs to end. It's just nice to know that characters and universes keep existing beyond our experience.
btw this jack-weasel is on YouTube and was nearly-bragging that he'd been kicked off a Masto instance for that comment...so he decided he's going to make his own instance.
I can't help but think that attempted coups and promised violence are precursors to how other countries have become dictatorships -- and I'm like "Are we going to be refugees by next week?"
Like, I'm no history buff, but I remember learning about situations just like this elsewhere in the world and I'm quite worried that we won't come out on the progressive side.
@neauoire rejigged an existing charset I made last year, which was trying to make most characters fit 6x6 (except extenders and descenders).
might be a bit much though... I'll keep playing around tomorrow.
Left is outputting blurry text on OS X, I'll see if I can figure that out too.
us pol, discussion of that's
Conservatives use Progressive tactics in bad faith and it drives me nuts! Like BLM charges a stage to share and discuss a political agenda. MAGA chuds charge the capital with guns to intimidate Congress... and they think those two examples are the same. Like no - protesting is meant to bring about change by way of awareness. What you did - waving guns around to get your way like a petulant child - was fucking terrorism.
Sick burns about Little Women (1994) being labeled PG on Amazon for "drug use and violence" (cw for reference to those things)
(from our living room)
"Remember when Amy stabs Jo with a shiv?"
"My favorite part when reading Little Women (which I never have) was when the Little Women get baked and started a bar fight with some townies."
Oh right i guess that's why lol
