    The existence of Baby Yoda is worthwhile only for how much the puppet reduced Werner Herzog to tears and caused him to have an existential crisis when it was suggested to shoot extra takes for CGI.

    It's a shame because the white skull would be a really good stand out image, it's that kind of Darth Vader iconic style if done well instead of guy in off-the-rack biker novelty biker helmet. It's worse because I've just played Death Stranding and Higgs has such an awesome looking gold skull mask.

    As someone who was waiting until more eps of the Mandalorian came out before I got a Disney+ sub, it's been illuminating how the internet has had zero chill when it came to baby yoda. That shit was spoiled almost instantly.

    Sims: I hope the answer is no, but was there ever a point at which you said his southern accent was too much?

    Johnson: No, though I’m sure my producer was sweating. Jamie Lee Curtis reminded me recently that in the script I described [Benoit Blanc’s] accent as “the gentlest southern lilt possible.” But when we got on set, I was just having so much fun watching [Craig]. I think in the movie, it probably takes a few minutes to adjust to him having that voice, but I could listen to him forever.

    Everything Daniel Craig does in Knives Out was a treasure and I'm glad Johnson recognized it.

    Yeah, but I also I remember a case study from my Management courses at uni.

    It went something like Mercades or Rolls Royce or Astin Martin or some other prestige European car manufacturer had not wanted to put Automatic transmissions into their cars while they were still new tech and had waited for the engineering to mature. Then once they started getting reliable and efficient and (most importantly) a selling point, they went around and surveyed all the other manufacturers for the most reliable and popular - which turned out to be Chevy or GM or some other Detroit motors corp.

    They licenced the transmission and built it from the patent documents to the peak of European engineering and precision - and it seized. They built it again - and it seized. They kept trying to get it to work for months before they eventually had to fly over one of the American engineers. They sat him down and told him how they had built it exactly according to plan and with micrometer tolerances and he looked at them in disbelief and said 'what?'.

    He took them down to the shop, took their immaculate transimmision, and just started filing bits and pieces off, grinding down gears, generally just repeatedly trying to find out what did and didn't work and then attacking those bits with gusto. The end product was nowhere near the designed patent blueprints - but it worked.

    I remember this because that course was 1998, about 2 months before Armageddon came out, so when I saw the movie I was like 'oh, someone lifted that same story'.

    And Harry Stamper is also totally the kind of American Detroit-motors guy to put close-enough good-enough measurements in his patent filing that it would provide legal protections and yet still not describe an actual working instrument.

    If a superhero or villain was pirate-themed I would allow it, but obviously that's not how they were usually deployed in comics, character designers just thought they looked cool and were easy to draw at some point.

    The reason there was a name for "alternative" culture in the 90s was that anything that wasn't straight white conservative was seen as somehow outside the norm by the media at the time. It was always just a case that the kids weren't down with what the old people were selling, and it's only changed now because there are finally enough kids that Boomer culture is no longer so pervasive as to be the unchallenged norm.
