"Blizzard went out of its way to make sure Blizzcon was marked by two major game announcements and sorrowful contrition. To anybody paying attention, it was really marked by insincerity and cowardice.
The company is a big pile of toss, and no amount of Diablo 4 or Overwatch 2 will actually change that. These game announcements are wallpaper over the cracks in Blizzard's facade, and we ought not forget it."
Oh - If you are not tuning in to Moe Factz 11 - "Alley-Oop" your missing out on brain candy and many, many examples of @adam seeing into the future.
Here is a teaser:
Moe: "What people are starting to realize is LeBron James and Colin Kaepernick are not Malcom X and Martin Luther King, they're Ronald McDonald and Col. Sanders".
Listen and learn how he soused that out...
I already told twitter, let me tell Gitmonation. @adam, this is for the red book. I predict Greta Thunberry will turn into an eco-terrorist when she realizes humans aren't going to do anything fundamental to deal with climate change. And I think she's going to take many snowflakes with her. An army of snowflake eco-terrorists.
My interpretation: Commercial broadcast and cable television are done. Debt financed streaming productions is all that matters now. http://l.curry.com/fbj
American Airlines mechanic accused of sabotaging flight
His intention was not to crash the plane, but to create a cancellation and more overtime work while struggling financially. All this while AA has been fighting with the mechanics unions for the last three years already.
Oh look, the new CEO of NPR is a previous administrator in charge of Voice of America. Propaganda, or whatever you want to call it.
I scrolled through the local timeline and didn't see this listed so I'm putting it here since it's right up our alley. YouTube "star" dies in an e-scooter accident. Is it the beginning of the end? We can only hope. @adam https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-07-14/youtube-star-s-death-renews-concerns-about-e-scooters-safety
Reading various social media sites saying “it’s ok, we’re safe, we’ve blocked Gab” - the latest being micro.blog. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be interested in a lot of what is said there, though I’ve never really looked, but I don’t see why people want to block off anything they disagree with. On the one hand, it’s amazingly arrogant to believe you are always right, and on the other it’s naive to ignore the “other side” & pretend it doesn’t exist.
Facial injuries resulting from scooter accidents increases threefold in the last ten years.
Why would I be concerned about flat-earthers thinking I'm retarded?
Social justice conscious, but not a warrior. I'm a lover, not a fighter. I accept people for who they are, I don't just who they want to be, but I'll be damned if I can't criticize them for what they do.
