    I'm getting very irritated with YouTube. The feed is terrible, new videos from channels I subscribe to are difficult to find now, it sucks. My feed often has videos from years ago, before I subscribed to that channel. I want to see new videos, from channels I subscribe to, on the "home" feed. I do not care about all of the other crap, or the shitty ads


    Goddamned algorithms.

    MUGEN tournament held for prize of $100 and an Astolfo body pillow. The only rules are that everyone picks Random for character and whatever happens happens.

    If you don't know what MUGEN is, it's ostensibly a fighting game where characters can range from carefully crafted homemade Street Fighter fan additions to someone's immaculate shitpost that takes up the entire screen and does no damage. In other words, glorious chaos.

    There is nothing that made me understand democrats better than Biden complaining that he didn't get enough credit for the economy. This garbage as economy that gets worse for worker every day. They live in a different world.

    Not to be too leftist about it, but I don't think the economy has had much correlation or even interest in the prosperity and welfare of actual people for a long time.

    Oh, certainly! I was trying to hint at the fact that this isn't so much Biden being out of touch or sheltered as it is capitalism working as intended. If the line goes up the president is doing their job and the investors and companies are happy. The line going up is more important than the happiness, health and fundamental freedoms of the people. The companies have spent incredible amounts of money to make sure this is the case.

    The comments have a lot of "oh this movie was prescient/a documentary about the now times" that make me :neutral: because while I didn't see the word the impression I got was they're complaining about wokeness.

    I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how he was able to do these zooms from an incredibly tight macro shot to a super wide establishing shot all without any cuts...

    How was he getting perfect focus over the whole shot? Maybe it's just a single still image zoomed in digitally? No... That would require petabytes of resolution.

    In fact, wouldn't it be literally impossible to film that without multiple different lenses?

    And then my brain clicked

    "Oh! The zoom is animated from single frames! Shoot on a macro, zoom out a tiny bit, shoot again, zoom out, change lenses, match aspect ratio, shoot, zoom out, change lenses again..."

    Hollywood studios would spend a ton of money making this shot digitally, and he's done it all in camera.
    Fuckin Kubrickian film making this is. He's just some guy!

    Opened in 1937, Normal Theater Now Twin City Icon

    For more than 25 years, the Normal Theater in Normal, IL has thrived as a town-run venue for classic, independent, and foreign films. Today, the theater is a central attraction in the revitalized “Uptown Normal” district just east of the Illinois State University campus. Yet the Art Moderne-style theater goes back much farther—all the way to 1937 and the Great Depression. Its golden years lasted better than three decades before the aging movie house began facing its share of the tough times and indignities common to pre-World War II theaters in American downtowns. Fortunately, the Normal survived neglect, disfigurement, and closure to become, after its restoration, one of the finest movie venues in the Midwest.

    And I do kind of think it used to be true. Or at least it was less untrue before. Like even back in '08 I definitely felt the shift as the economy recovered. Not so much now.

    The comments have a lot of "oh this movie was prescient/a documentary about the now times" that make me :neutral: because while I didn't see the word the impression I got was they're complaining about wokeness.

    The future presented is a false utopia where bad language has been criminalized, guns are banned so effectively one can only find them in a museum, only "pleasant" music can be found on the radio such as commercial jingles, physical touch is seen as repulsive and is avoided, even in the practice of "sex", and the eating of meat has been abolished. The "underground" is led by edgy comedian Dennis Leary who wants to return to the days of cussing, drinking, eating red meat, and fucking, which is meant to be the sympathetic view to both the protagonist and the viewing audience.

    Also the villain is a flamboyant black man and practically the only person of color you see for most of the film.

    It's effectively presenting a mid-90s liberalism in the same light as Idiocracy presents Bush-era conservativism.

    Of course you'll have equal amounts of anti-liberal folks spouting that old cliché the same way liberals like to frame Idiocracy as "prophetic".

    Personally I think we're heading towards more of an Escape from New York situation, aside from NYC actually being hyper-gentrified now.
