Just got a ticket for my first gig in ages. It’s actually I want to see, but should be good.

And coincidentally a few hours after I get a ticket to see them, this pops up…

Genuinely LOLing at Nik Nocturnal’s parody radio friendly butt rock banger, unironically commissioned by a US rock radio station. Music industry ouroboros.

The fallout from the announcement of a #Bluesky bridge is your reminder that posting something on the internet will result in people responding with All Of The Takes, many of which will be nonsensical, catastrophising, counter factual or deranged. And yet armies of fans will glom onto seemingly any of them at random and march along with their pitchforks and righteous anger.

It’s the Avenue 5 airlock scene all over again.

‘Doctor Who’ Star Millie Gibson to Be Replaced by Varada Sethu After One Season

Is this fallout from taking Disney money, clash with RTD or just something totally fine, but everyone is freaking out because they’re not making any statements about it?

AI could help unearth a trove of lost classical texts

The machine learning kind, not the LLM bullshit fountain kind. Analysing 3D scans of burnt papyrus scrolls.

If you already speak French, this is great. Helps if you also speak Spanish, Arabic, Russian et Quebecois.

Absolutely certain that this is what Snyder thought he was doing with Rebel Moon. Much slowmo, very wooden exposition.

Got around to watching and I knew I shouldn’t have bothered. It’s a po-faced remake of Battle Beyond the Stars (which in turn was a remake of Magnificent 7 and Seven Samurai), but with Snyder’s lens flare, oiled pecs, wooden dialogue and slowmo fight scenes.

Also, why is Geordie Charlie Hunnam doing a wobbly Norn Iron accent?

Rishi Sunak suggests general election in second half of year

Desperately clinging on as long as possible so his mates can continue to milk the public purse and keep that performative cruelty boot kicking til the last second.

Still not convinced the perpetually bewildered Edith Bowman is a good substitute for the progressively inebriated Jackie Bird, TBH #Hogmanay2023

Driving my 15 year old back to his mother’s the other day after he spent Christmas here and (as usual) he insisted on playing his own music as mine is “all just noise and screaming and not proper music”. How the turn tables. Surely I’m supposed to be the one saying that?

Well, this sucks. I’ve been checking in occasionally with my Firefish alt account and putting up with timelines not loading and weirdness, thinking someone might get around to fixing it. Guess not.

Time to see if Kimis is still the only half decent iOS app that supports emoji reactions or if any support antennas yet…

Does it still count as me boycotting Farage if I had no intention of ever watching I’m a Celebrity anyway?

Next door’s cat must think I’m a real dick.

It’s cold, dark and raining. He sees me coming up the drive and runs from wherever he was sheltering to stand expectantly at his back door. I acknowledge his presence. Greet him by name. And then abandon him there, dripping on the doorstep as I go into my own house. What a dick. Surely I could have easily opened the door for him. It was quite obvious what was required.
