So that whole Tux vs. Xenia debate over the Linux Mascot title got me thinking

I like Xenia as a character but she's not exactly mascot-y. Mascots should be distinct in silhouette and have a logo-able design.

So I decided to try making a Xenia logo! 3 different kinds, in fact!

Given that the English translation of the Moomin books even censored the word "dinosaur" in order to avoid offending Creationists, for my whole life I have always wondered how else the original Swedish differed. I wonder how much gayer it was, especially. Could any Swedish readers weigh in?

(Some people in Tech right now): No, but Microsoft has changed. It's really pro open source now. It's not the same company as before. People can change, you now.

i think the coolest part of image descriptions is providing a clear explanation of what you’re trying to communicate with your image.

Ryu Hoshikawa (DynaBlack) faces a mimic monster who copies his appearance and a confused battle ensues.

The reason I love this scene is the editing: Filmed in 1983 it uses no CG or green screen, and the film cuts are rough and obvious - but the directing and acting really makes it work.

I wonder if it'd be possible to digitally adjust and hide the cuts using modern technology? :blobthinking:

@Aleums My gender is a probability until someone takes a guess, at which point I assess the situation and my familiarity with them to determine if they are correct.

I respect and appreciate "Let me talk your ear off about neopronouns" trans people even if I myself am a "Maybe I can learn a language without gendered pronouns and then spend the rest of my life pretending to not know english" trans person.

Art is very much a product of its society, and the material forces that govern it. Personally, I get a lot of political focus by thinking about the sort of art and artists we're aiming for.

My favorite conversation I ever had about politics was not about politics. It was a discussion of how, in a world post capitalism, where society has reorganized around more equitable lines, how film would work. Who would get to make movies? What sort of resources would they have? What kind of stories would they be interested in?
