The opening to #Hawkeye 3 has some top shelf visual storytelling and, dare I say it - representation done right.
Wow, I did not expect to see little d/big D politics in a Marvel show.
They really stepped it up this week.
Not exaggerating when I say this episode has a Marvel Movie-tier action sequence. And also some writing that punches way above its weight class.

The entire concept of NFTs is basically to assign value to the abstract concept of provenance. Your NFT isn't materially different from any copy of it, except for the fact that you have provenance that goes back to the original. So the provenance itself is what holds the value.
I guess you could look at it as having a spoon that is virtually identical to every other spoon ever except that it used to belong to someone famous and they gave it to you. That abstract notion of direct ownership lineage is what gives the spoon extra value.
I'm not trying to defend it. I'm trying to understand the appeal. And it really is the idea of monetizing abstract bragging rights that don't attach to anything real. It's just known that you were the one who bought it.

Since it seems you can now do this on both mobile platforms (but not on web yet for some reason), I’m going to start posting exclusive Super Follower content soon. It’s a feature Twitter offered I try out. For $2.99 a month you’ll get access to tweets no one else can see. Image
I will try to post one piece of content there a day starting soon - recommendations for things, short threads on current topics, voice tweets, maybe some extra Yoko pictures, and more. You also get a nifty badge and better placement in replies to all my tweets. Image
I don’t know if this will be a big thing yet. Was given the opportunity to try it out so I’m trying to do something with it. Feel free to subscribe and also suggest some content you’d like to see. Thanks to those already on board! Fun stuff coming soon…

In what world are liberals grateful for America? They want to abolish the senate, just spent a week trashing the entire justice system, and don't even think Thanksgiving is an occasion to celebrate in the first place.
Frank, we both understand that my comment doesn't apply to literally every single self-defining liberal in the country. But we're talking about a line that's pushed by the president and vice president, not some fringe opinion.
When Trump said crazy stuff and almost no one else in the party did, it was still valid to criticize as a top-down policy from the guy in charge of both the party and the country. I think it's equally fair to apply this standard now. Party leaders are setting the tone.

Coming soon... 👀👀👀 Image
It's honestly weird that I was offered a chance to apply for @SuperFollows and was accepted, but despite being fully qualified for verification as far as I understand it, Twitter just refuses to do it. It just doesn't make sense.
@SuperFollows It's a work in progress. I think I will post some voice tweets there, maybe additional Yoko content and potentially some longform threads on things like movies or such. You can already subscribe now. I picked the cheapest option they gave ($2.99 a month).

Israeli media also reporting that Rittenhouse killed two black people.
Chyron here calls him a white nationalist.
I almost don't blame them (despite the fact that media malpractice is media malpractice), but plenty of seemingly authoritative sources either said this or framed the story in a way that made it sound obvious that this is what had happened.

Eventually enough of these will fail that they realize that anime zaniness and extreme personality traits do not translate to live action. It's like trying to make live action Looney Toons. The serious anime that would work as live action are often too violent or messed up.
You could never make Berserk in the West. I'm sure there won't be any hot takes about how the main female character is raped by demons until her brain breaks. Monster might work but has a couple of plot points that would be really hard to translate to live action.
Or hey let's make a Gurren Lagann live action movie where Yoko has her demure teacher's outfit for the entire show and a robot that's literally larger than the entire universe won't seem silly at all.

It. Just. Doesn't. Work.
