I feel so overwhelmed and out of my element and I don’t know what I’m doing here and I’m tired and want to go home and sleep and/or cry
MST3K season 12 Show more
So, season 12 has the same general problem as season 11 - none of the riffs are particularly memorable, and they seem to just have no filter for whether things are good or not. It's just like a rapid onslaught of unfunny jokes that barely pay attention to the context of the movie. And many of them are literally fart jokes.
It's like they just need to shove as much as possible in and are afraid of dead air.

So glad to see Gypsy finally getting some riffing that's not just like popping in and make a single quip that doesn't land. The whole musical riffing segment is pretty good.

Masto meta; Tumblr; instance block policy; Nazi mention Show more
Reminder to Masto instance admins:
Remember, if Nazi- or abuser-sheltering instances pop up in the wake of the Tumblr stuff, you have to ban them EARLY
You have to do it way before "but it would be unfair to so many users" becomes a reason to tolerate abuse
New post: Plaidophile: Medical terminology for trans healthcare https://beesbuzz.biz/blog/1453-Medical-terminology-for-trans-healthcare
well on the plus side the healthcare field is starting to actually be supportive of trans stuff, but holy SHIT is the terminology they use problematic.
For example, Swedish Hospital gave me a diagnosis of "transgendered transsexual," and Kaiser Permanente now has "Uncomfortable with one's gender" on my record. (I'm totally comfortable with my gender! It just doesn't match the hormones my birth equipment produced.)
Also unlike SOME calendars I could name whose annual cadence is based on the political cycle of the Roman Empire, ours is based on farming cycles which is at least practical.
Also it’s way easier to measure the passage of time based on sundown than based on some imaginary transit point between sundown and sunrise. (And sunrise is for suckers.)
Also today is the first day of Hanukkah. Jewish holidays traditionally start and end at sundown (as does the date interval itself on the Jewish calendar) which can be very confusing to Western audiences. This is also why your grandma’s wall-hung calendar with cat photos shows today as being the start of Hanukkah despite everyone talking about the first night last night.
Similarly, the Jewish sabbath starts at sundown on Friday evening and lasts until sundown on Saturday.

The less active I am on Twitter the more notifications it tries to send me to get me to re-engage. And they’re all the sorts of notifications that are WHY I’M SICK OF TWITTER.
So thanks for the reminder I guess.
Also I would have posted my “fuck yeah Jews” post there but then I remembered twitter’s a great place to get a lot of abuse from nazis and I didn’t feel safe posting it there. Oh well.
Seattle-based music/code/comics critter. Vaguely friend-shaped. Spoony (#fibromyalgia), queer, and anxious as heck. Handle with care.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
