it's all fun and games until you find out he got into eugenics because he loves the movie Idiocracy

it's always interesting watching seasons 1 and 2 of a show back to back and seeing who decided to spend their fancy new regular paychecks on plastic surgery

Trying to live the kinda life where Chuck Tingle never drags me with a satirical erotic work within a day of my mistakes going public.

"marginalized creators encouraged to apply for this gig that pays a penny a word for perpetual worldwide exclusive rights" yeah fuck off

if your movie or game or tv show essentially functions as the marketing arm of the US military industrial complex, no amount of gay people in the cast will make it less imperialist

you can keep "enemies to lovers" and "there was only one bed," my favorite fanfic trope is "gotta try and maintain a professional relationship with the person i had an anonymous one night stand with"

every time a character goes home with some hottie from the bar only to show up to their new job the next day and get introduced to that exact same hottie, i riot

jerry goldsmith is a really good composer and also has a name i'd give to an NPC i had to invent on the spot

movie nonsense 

@annachronism christopher nolan movies are pretty straightforward to pretty much anyone who's read science fiction before, but unfortunately most of the modern moviegoing public doesn't read

Someone recommended the SimEarth manual as noteworthy and I was like “oh, sure, it’ll just have some basic biology fluff” and instead it immediately slams you with “IN ORDER TO HAVE A HOLISTIC UNDERSTANDING OF OUR BIOSPHERE, YOU MUST FIRST UNDERSTAND THE LIVING GODDESS EARTH”

there's probably something to be said about the fact that twitter constantly bans trans people for bullshit reasons and yet when someone puts out a call for trans writers/artists, it's usually posted exclusively on twitter

gotta wonder how many books that would normally be about adults are retrofitted into YA because someone's trying to build a franchise

Hell Followed with Us (app.thestorygraph.com/books/fc) seems like a perfectly fine premise for a book but people keep billing it as "venom but gay" which i wholeheartedly disagree with

the whole point of eddie brock is that he's a complete disaster of an adult man who has to go grocery shopping and pay rent while dealing with his alien parasite that's maybe in love with him and you can't replicate that energy with a 16-year-old protagonist

dnd magic item 

*Catlike Treads*
These inch-thick iron soles will magically stick to the bottom of a pair of shoes or boots until deliberately removed by the wearer. While worn, the wearer rolls all stealth checks with advantage, even if they have disadvantage from heavy armour or another effect, as long as they either make as much noise as possible, or sing bombastically about how sneaky they are while performing the stealthed action. Fulfilling both of these requirements grants an additional +1 to the roll. Actively attempting to be quiet while wearing the Treads will cause all stealth rolls to automatically fail.

once you have defeated gender you may wear its strictures as you please, not as trappings but as trophies

Show thread

i don't trust the cultural push for "wholesome" entertainment

i was a queer teen during the heyday of the "family values" movement, i know what "wholesome" really means

Kit Walker relayed

most of the video essays on YouTube could just be regular written essays and the only reason they're not is because the creator's target audience doesn't read
