  1. Happy birthmonth Rena!! Yeah the same thing happened here, little snow flurries! Feels colder than it is for some reason..
  2. Well maybe that’s why it’s successful, because it uses the tropes in an exemplary way that sets itself up and sets an example See that’s it right there! It’s like the suspension of disbelief. If you can get that then you can have an enjoyable story. The tropes aren’t as much a support of the film as they are a quality of it.
  3. We still haven’t really seen it at all but practically everyone he talks to that mentions it says it’s not only good but one of their favorites and they often get visibly excited by the topic. [insert kamehameha here]
  4. My emphasis added that sounds HILARIOUS That’s behind the ‘so bad it’s good’ thing. We love movies like that... and there’s plenty of internet memes that fit this description.. “BTW I’VE ALWAYS LOVED THIS TERM” me toox
  5. Sleep! Sometimes nothing is something worth doing! Do crazy stuff in dreamland!
  6. So is this like a thing? Like an archetype or common structure or something?
  7. This is actually part of the Tibetan monk’s training at their monasteries. You also have to carry pails of water from a bar carried over your shoulders and you’re not allowed to spill any of it or you have to start over. And then you watch anime while doing kegels in the plank position and if you fall they slap your little feetsies and they rewind the tape.
  8. Don’t forget people with poor self control and procrastinators!
  9. “I was going to say they’re spending it on mobile phones now but.. that is in addition to mobile phone usage rising. So people are just increasing screentime generally. I shot my tv a while ago but I just got to a point where I thought ‘hm. Spending like 6 hours a day on my phone probably isn’t healthy and the worst part is I don’t even feel like it’s a problem or even abnormal.’ Then I started tracking how much time I accumulated daily and when I started doing that the numbers were shocking, like waaay higher than I thought. All by design tho.” But the empowering thing is realizing how much free time you DO have when you’re more present in the boring immediate moment! ”Phone is so entertaining it’s boring. Being present is so boring it’s entertaining.”
  10. looka dat voltorb ..looks fat I know where we can get our slime from muk
  11. Sooooo I just learned how to do this booooooooooooooOOIIIIIIIII
  12. Thoughtforms UNITE!! The Merging of A Community of Telemancers
  13. “I’m writing the end of a story.” “What’s the story?” “There isn’t one.” “ how is that an ending if there’s nothing being ended?” “I’m ending the story before it started.” “But that’s impossible because that would mean it’s not an ending - what you’re saying is ‘the ending’ would be the subject. You can’t end something that can’t be ended. That’s what the word ending means - the final part of something, so if the final part is the only part then it’s not ‘the end’ of anything - and it can’t accurately be called an ending”
  14. But how can you end something that never started?? ..or existed?
  15. Wait, but that would totally be more emotive than .! ...but isn’t that the same thing though? Surprise or strong feeling without... fuck...
  16. I think I just broke my brain 2+2=5 now
  17. But wouldn’t strongly expressing a lack of apparent expression just be !
  18. “.! doesn't express anything in particular, but it expresses [it] very strongly and with a lot of enthusiasm” What is this “it” in brackets? “it refers to the thing being expressed” the thing being expressed: “doesn't express anything”
  19. You’re expressing the lack of an expression? strongly?? But you can’t express what by definition is a lack of expression 🥺
  20. Exactly, but there isn’t anything being expressed like you just said! the only way you can express a lack of expression is not to say anything If ‘nothing’ can be expressed strongly then you’re not truly referring to a lack of things but to the concept itself of ‘nothing,’ which is a thing (and also does not self-describe)
  21. If it doesn’t express anything then there’s no ‘it’ that can be expressed, especially strongly or in other words.. you’re expressing (but also not) your lack of expressions (which also is an expression) as a strong expression? I’m confuzzled
  22. 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342
  23. Ahhhh But .! is only marginally more emotive aka still not emotive at all, and if more emotive is what you’re going for... : )
