All things me.

@odd You are right, off course. The problem is that I find the ignore part hard to do.

And that’s probably why I feel especially negative toward the idiots on ”the left”, rather than on ”the right”. The stupidities of ”the right” is fairly simple to ignore. Just don’t read their fringe publications. Ignoring stupidities from ”the left” on the other hand would require me to ignore so much mainstream press.

I am probably the odd man out here, but when I talk about my problems with the ”culture war” destroying my will to rewatch The Last Jedi, it is mainly not because of Evil Right-Wing-Alt-Right-Nazi-Incel-Hobgoblins, it’s because of their opposite yet still strangely similar counterparts telling me that if I don’t love this movie, it’s probably because I’m a misogynistic racist who hate people who aren’t skinny.

It’s gotta be possible to find a movie okay but not great.

@furstenberg The Last Jedi will probably grow on me to once I rewatch it. The problem for me is that it got caught up in the stuped ”culture war” that we seem to be fighting on the internet every single day.

Was it that the commentary helped in expressing his intentions with the movie, or where they just fun/interesting comments?

2020, the year when I start buying plastic discs again

Yes, DVDs and blu-ray still suck but having to say ”no, we can’t watch that movie on this tv because it doesn’t have an AppleTV connected, so let’s go to the other room and watch it there” is worse and there are solutions.

2020 is the year when I start buying plastic discs again.

@adamprocter Probably, but it still worth it to have those days where you feel like you’re hitting it out of the park.

@adamprocter Good work! Those kind of days are so rare and so great, as opposed to those where you feel like you have at least ten things more on your todo list that should have been done that day.

As I’m moving back from Christmas into normal work weeks, I need to get back into micro.blog as well.

@ronguest Thanks Ron, that’s very kind of you.

@odd Håller med. Och sen är det väl där den stora ideologiska trätofrågan är, alltså hur vi bekämpar fattigdom.

@furstenberg Seems more or less like my impression. I definitely need to see Rise of Skywalker again before forming a proper opinion, but I should probably also see The Last Jedi again. I’ve only seen both movies once.
