@porsupah yeah it’s always been about what he saw as electability stuff, which he tied to the economy over all else. Not realizing you can’t have an economy if we’re all dead.

@mod video encoders are optimized for live action and have always had problems with neat things :(

@Balina so this makes a lot of sense, and also explains why I was briefly but very into hyper before I ended up settling into more comfort with nullification/neutrois instead.

@Kye Ah, and maybe the ARM ones will be significantly cheaper or a better option comes along in the meantime.

if he were alive today i believe walt disney would approve of disneyland reopening because he was a greedy bastard and a horrible cunt.

Today I was reminded that Nina Paley is a TERF, and in trying to look it up I found that she actually has an entire category on her blog called β€œTERFy” so I mean she isn’t even denying it, she’s proud to be one.

I regret ever giving her money for Sita Sings the Blues even though even at the time I thought she was being disingenuous about her copyright stance (and since then I feel like she’s made free culture her Thing for duplicitous reasons)


@porsupah yeah, also probably easier for humans to maintain
