Javier Bardem is a brilliant Stilgar #Dune
The bit where the Sardaukar are getting marked with blood from people strapped upside down on a sort of pyramid is.. very disturbing.
Oh it was in the trailer apparently. Feels quite Giger-esque
Villeneuve's Dune keeps a lot of the unsettling darkness of the universe that was missing in other adaptations
Like the Fremen gathering the bodies of their dead enemies to stick them in a machine and squeeze the water out
Just remembered that the people strapped into the bloodletting pyramid are failed Sardaukar candidates, which is sort of an extra layer of grim
I like the way the Sardaukar descend silently from their drop ships

Going completely insane at this floorplan (one of 11 identical stories) of the "megadorm" that some billionaire wants to build for students in California. This is the kind of shit a sadist would build in Prison Architect
4,500 students in one building, with two entrances
"The idea was conceived by 97-year-old billionaire-investor turned amateur-architect Charles Munger, who donated $200 million toward the project with the condition that his blueprints be followed exactly"

I like stuff like this, here's another: Cleopatra's reign is closer to the modern day than it is to the construction of the pyramids
When Cleopatra was cutting about, the Pyramids were already as old to her as the Colosseum is to us
The Aztec Empire was founded and Joan of Arc started hearing voices in the same year

One thing that has largely been overlooked is just how many Ukrainian and Baltic Nazis escaped to Canada, and now their children and grandchildren are in positions of power
Looks fine, not worrying at all, nope

Woman lives in residence she's legally entitled to live in
Whisper it but if you restrict social housing to the lowest-income people, the buildings quickly become neglected, repairs go undone, green spaces not maintained etc. It's a key pillar behind one of my favourite topics, Red Vienna
Investing the middle classes in social programmes makes them much harder for the ruling classes to neglect and destroy.

Plane doesn't look particularly full, no room for the parents?
*extremely* wary of these stories of soldiers taking kids from their families in an air-lift situation, what happens to that baby? who is providing care?
Another little boy in the hands of another soldier just behind, what's the set-up for these children? Who looks after them? Are they being put up for adoption? Did the parents consent to that?
