@ItsTheManOnTheMoon lmaooo I initially read your screen name as " Hot Slut Rawlson"
My mind is a mess 😂😂
Is there one of those perfect compound German words for "There were like 3 grocery trips in a row where I forgot I already had the thing so I bought more and then I had a ton of the thing so I stopped putting it on the list so I could use up what I had and that was fine for a while but I didn't really keep track and all of a sudden I'm out of the thing"?
00:00 - 02:00 Shitty animated title sequence with shitty canned music
02:01 - 05:00 "Hey guys, today I thought I'd talk about [thing] but first remember to like and subscribe"
05:01 - 20:00 fifteen minutes of bullshit that could be described in a paragraph of text
20:01 - 25:00 "and I put amazon affiliate links to all the crap I'm shilling in the text so you can go buy it. And remember to like and subscribe!"
"As an artist that stores their art on twitter and a lot of art related sites. This troubles me deeply. Imagine if Twitter or even Youtube did this. Every video gone forever."
And just holy yikes, y'all. This gave me palpitations.
Please don't think of uploading/sharing stuff as "storing" it on any of these sites--twitter/tumblr/etc. There's no good retrieval process, you don't control compression, etc. It's nice to access stuff one's shared for resharing but not storage.
Star Wars: Rogue One rewatch
I rewatched Rogue One yesterday and maybe it's the contrast between it and "Solo", but it's grown on me quite a bit in the year or so since I last watched it. It captures the same "lived-in 1970s futuristic sci fi" feel as the original trilogy, which is most of what I loved about the original trilogy.
"Solo" never felt like it was in the same universe, it was more... I don't know. Generic serviceable popcorn action movie with Star Wars action figures.
...one article I just read theorizes that myspace did the math and decided that "Oops, we deleted 53 million songs" was slightly better PR than "We can't be bothered to keep hosting 53 million songs that nobody ever listens to on a platform that nobody actually uses anymore, anyway, so we're going to just delete it." ...which does seem equally plausible.
fucking myspace. It was always such an utter piece of shit of a platform.
My genuine sympathies to the person(s) who somehow accidentally lost such a staggeringly huge amount of data. Anyone who's lost even the tiniest bit of customer data knows the very specific, sinking "Oh fuuuuuuck" feeling you get when you realize what's happened... more than anything I'm feeling queasy sympathy reading about it.
Not much sympathy for anyone who was using fucking myspace to store the sole copies of their creative output, though.
Yay: figured out how to fix the feed dog height on the vintage Kenmore 1227 that came in the #sewingmachine table I picked up via LetGo a couple weeks back. (I was only after the table, but the machine turned out to be a nice bonus; pristine, solid-metal, all-mechanical machine probably worth fixing/keeping. Looks like it was hardly ever used.)
Boo: Now I have to wait for a replacement drive belt to arrive. (Fingers crossed that does the trick.)
