For no particular reason, I had The Rooster Bar by John Grisham on my TBR and started reading it this week. I don't normally go for "airport books," but this one is a ton of fun. Now I remember why I read over a dozen of Grisham's books in the 90s and early 2000s. It's been a while since I picked him up... almost a couple decades, but I'm glad I did again.

FTR, The Rooster Bar has nothing to do with chickens. 😉

@dbsalk @bookstodon I felt the same way about those types of books for a loooooong time but I decided to go back and read through some and they're better than I anticipated. I've read like 5 of the Alex Cross's so far.

Okay, since I'm on laundry today, a little story.

When hubs and I first got married, we were very much enjoying our little Honeymoon Bubble, and we were being lazy as Hell. We didn't do many chores, but the laundry we really let go. We weren't wearing many clothes at home anyway, so why bother. Anyhow, after weeks we finally reached the swimming suit bottoms situation, and decided it was time. It was loads and loads of laundry that needed done, so I had my husband back the trunk of the car up to a window of the house, then he popped the trunk, and I started tossing laundry out of the window into the trunk. We went to the bank, got about $30 bucks in quarters, and found the emptiest laundry mat we could, and did it all in one fell swoop. We folded it all and loaded it back into the car using those wheeled laundry carts. We never let it get that bad again, and decided it was time to be adults, and do regular chores, but it still makes me laugh imagining what the neighbors and the laundry attendant thought.

Feel free to share your own laundry story, if you feel like it, I love hearing people's stories!

@RickiTarr no real story, just a comment of, boy do I NOT miss having to use a laundromat. A truly cringe worthy experience.

Star Wars Trilogy on VHS.

But my kid has never seen a Star Wars film, and this will be her first time seeing it.

I’ll start with Empire Strikes Back since that’s the best Star Wars film ever.

I can't figure out if mastodon is a high context culture or not. People seem to be expected to give long introductions and do a lot of identity/positionality disclosure, but also an enormous reply guy culture which is defined by low context drive-by. Conversational turn-taking is extremely low compared to other platforms ime, but depth-seeking is high. What an interesting mix.

*obviously, these experiences are all situated within my own network effects, and I'm not well networked here.

RVLara23,
@RVLara23@mastodon.social avatar

@grimalkina to me the most interesting thing about Mastodon is that anyone's experience here really is whatever they make it out to be.

Since there is no algorithm whatsoever, it's 100% up to each user to curate a space they enjoy and find valuable.

It's worked out brilliantly for me. But I understand why others might have a tougher time adapting to it, especially given the most recent social landscapes that are out there.

RVLara23,
@RVLara23@mastodon.social avatar

@grimalkina sure, valid. It can be tough if you're looking for something really specific bc I think we're still hovering at around 1mm active users over here. The user pool is going to be limited no matter what anyone is searching for, absolutely true.

I'm curious how Threads and Bluesky federating will change that but there's also a lot of resistance to those integrations from this side so.... who knows?

Also, hope you didn't think I was singling you out or anything - wasn't my intention.

The bundles are coming:

  • Disney+, Hulu, Max mash up their original content with content from ABC, Fox, TNT, TBS, CNN, Discovery Channel, Food Network, & more

  • ESPN, Fox Sports, Discovery are combining forces for a sports channel bundle

So we went from cable bundles, to cord cutting, to paying for internet and more bundles.

This does not feel like a win for consumers. More like a shuffling of the deck.

@davemark absolutely not a win.

For example, if rumors are true and Netflix is getting the NFL Xmas games, you will need FOUR different streaming services to see all the NFL games this season.

The oldest entry on IndieWire's list of the best teen dramas was first broadcast in 1979, but the majority of shows that made the cut are from after 2000, when there was a huge boom in the genre. Here's the magazine's ranking of 42 shows. Which do you think came in at No. 1? Take a look at the list after you've voted and tell us if you think they got it right.

@CultureDesk Yea saw that. 90210 is far far too low. The cultural phenomenon of that show ALONE deserves a higher ranking.
