I loved the Kong animation, Michael! Very well done and 10x more entertaining the typical CGI of our day.

Bad epistemology! Oh, I haven't endured such a slam on this site since that "minions" comment by, um, oh I forget who.


Yeah, the marvels of mass communication and social media - lots of people we'll never meet, who think they're our superiors, making up nonsense, insisting to us it's real and of highest importance, and then telling us what to think about it - and that only dangerously subversive, evil Nazi scum have a different opinion about the fake world they have created. God forbid some tinfoil hat crank conspiracy theorist call BS on it all. Why, such a person might suffer the fate of being banished from Fake World.

If only the people making making the laws that we must follow and taking our hard earned money were among the master of Fake World, it would all be very funny to observe. I like King Kong, though.

Ah I think that Time story is just stupidly told, not even sure what the point of calling it a "conspiracy theory" is.

Though for anyone excited about Biden-Harris, I'd say the same thing I did to Trump voters in 2016 - the best thing to expect from a politician is disappointment, so that you might be pleasantly surprised.

Really the Time story is part of the endless click bait from Big Tech down to those bizarre patronage supported "journalists"/Youtubers who apparently insist I should care about Star Wars in some form as if civilization depends on it.

As Deleuze uncannily said decades ago ->

“The problem is no longer getting people to express themselves, but providing little gaps of solitude and silence in which they might eventually find something to say. Repressive forces don’t stop people from expressing themselves, but rather force them to express themselves.

What a relief to have nothing to say, the right to say nothing, because only then is there a chance of framing the rare, or ever rarer, the thing that might be worth saying.”

Ah apologies Michael was a bit brainless of me to use Star Wars as an example - was not meant to be a dig at your rec'ing of Mandalorian in anyway.

No problems, Saj. I’m not a big Star Wars fan anyway. But I liked season1 of The Mandalorian enough to recommend it to the handful of Johnny-come-latelys like me who haven’t seen it.

Season 2 starts off strong, but so far I’m not as jazzed by it overall as I was by season 1 (haven’t seen it all, though).

Michael - "I’m not a big Star Wars fan anyway"

In that case, purely for humor's sake, you might like this clip from The Thick of It ->
