Sport. Got stuck at one of 2 tables people sat at from my course on Monday night and the rest of the table proceeded to talk about hurling.
I sat there thinking it was rude to leave, for several minutes, then got up and moved to other table and instantly found conversation interesting.

Does mean I'm less fit than I should be probably though. Used to dance quite frequently until I moved too far out of town to get home easily from wahtever clubs

I think I have a thing in my brain that just tunes out sport talk the moment it happens. If sport comes up in conversation or on telly all I hear is "blahblahblahblah" MAybe if I didn't have this handy cerebral device I might learn something, but sadly it's there to stay.

I have been waiting at least a decade, perhaps two for this cultural moment to be over, but afaict this is it now, superhero movies forever, something I will never have the slightest interest in.

Just to be perhaps trenchant here, I still love pop music, feel some of it has more ideas than almost any rock music, and also love "difficult" music of various sorts, things I need to put in work to appreciate, and these work surprisingly well together. BUT with other art forms, films especially, it seems like "difficult" has been pushed to the margins over the last couple of decades, I cannot seem to find that crossover which I still can in music.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Wednesday, 1 May 2019 11:59 (four months ago) link

I think the major difference is w/ music or whatever there is no bottleneck on the consumer end

these fucking stupid movies on any given night (btw standard, 3D, Real3D, ACTUAL 3D or whatever he fuck) are taking up 40-50% of the screens

yeah that's the problem, I think the combo of Game of Thrones + Avengers stuff clogging the internet on Monday was instructive, because as little as I care about GOT, it's just a TV show, not taking up extra space. the superhero movies are w/e but they happen ALL FUCKING YEAR now

we could wait for people (all over the world, it seems) between 25 and 45 to grow the fuck up, but that's clearly a fool's errand

even worse, increasingly you hear any criticism of the superhero movies - whether it's the movies itself, their popularity, the space they take up - shot down with variations on "stop raining on peoples' parade / don't criticize something everyone clearly enjoys"
fuck

Fuckwits on Everest

On mountains anywhere tbh. Or buildings or whatever.

The Guts of Duran Duran (Tom D.), Sunday, 2 June 2019 22:41 (three months ago) link

what gets me is the ppl whose actual goal isn't just to climb everest, but to do it without bringing extra oxygen along! i mean i get just wanting to climb the mountain i guess but deliberately doing it in a way designed to maximize your own chances of DYING there feels like some seriously toxic brand of recklessness

kinda surprised that there haven't been any obsessed deep sea divers who tried to swim all the way to the bottom of the mariana trench yet

(The Other) J.D. (J.D.), Sunday, 2 June 2019 23:12 (three months ago) link

It kills me how documentaries about climbing attempts play up the supposed drama of whether they'll make it to the top or else freeze to death trying. Except there is NO DRAMA in that. The narrative conflict is phony, because they always have the option to just NOT CLIMB the thing with no consequence.

This is a perfect case for not caring.

punning display, Monday, 3 June 2019 00:46 (three months ago) link

Oh good, I was wondering if anyone cared about this everest "drama" going on. This is only another version of people accidentally killing themselves while taking a selfie.

Yerac, Monday, 3 June 2019 01:26 (three months ago) link

I saw a photo of the queue of climbers for summiting and there must have been 80 people in a long line, within the last quarter mile of the top. It's a fucking circus, except it is happening in a place called the Death Zone.

A is for (Aimless), Monday, 3 June 2019 03:10 (three months ago) link

a long line of ppl waiting to have their photo taken in a place where there is not enough oxygen to survive has to be some kind of metaphor for the state of humanity in 2019

world's #1 piece of shit (rip van wanko), Sunday, 25 August 2019 18:52 (three weeks ago) link

^^There's a shared post going around FB with the picture of the Popeye's CEO, an older white woman, above this caption:

This is the owner of popeyes but she uses a black woman in her commercials to sell chicken and this week through social media black people created another trend and helped this woman make MILLIONS of dollars selling a fucking chicken sandwich

A lot of the people sharing this are red-hatters who haven't got near as angry about shit that actually matters.

'red-hatters' meaning MAGA people? why would they be opposed to rapacious capitalism?

flappy bird, Sunday, 25 August 2019 20:42 (three weeks ago) link

Yes, Red Hat=MAGA. It's just that they clutch pearls because of things they literally just learned about Popeyes, while at the same time praising Chick-fil-A and their genuinely bad business practices to the skies. It's like racists out to find 'the real racists'.
