This is an post...kinda.

Hit me up with your toots. Mine is on order and I'm looking forward to getting it.

It looks like this will probably be my new main account. It's with a heavy heart that I am moving on from mastodon.club, but @msh has a solid instance here that I'm happy to join.

Working on issue #3 of my newsletter, The Dork Web. Issue #1 comes out this thursday at 13:37 UTC.

I think a reliance on practical effects also plays a role. Especially by the late 90s/early 00s, there was a greater emphasis on CGI effects and a lot of those sequences just don't hold up. They were cutting edge at the time, but look like absolute crap today.

Random thought: a lot of action (and, to a somewhat lesser degree, sci fi) movies from the 80s hold up better today than those from the 90s or even the early 00s, and I wonder if this is because they're just old enough that we don't see hilariously outdated tech (a home phone seems timeless, a brick cell phone from 1993 does not), but are close enough to the contemporary era that they don't feel out-dated or old fashioned.

This PC culture has gotten so out of hand you can't even wear a military jacket you bought for five dollars at Goodwill to get discounts at waffle House anymore
