Star Trek The Motion Picture Show more
So yesterday was finally the day I began my mission to watch all the Star Trek original series films.
I started knowing that the first film is derided, but I have to say I did enjoy it. Sure the plot is next to nothing, but I found the special effects and long visual takes very charming. They remind me of films I would watch as a kid that I enjoyed for the trippy spectacle.
Context is important.
There’s a difference between a casual viewer and a completionist. The latter intends to consume all of a franchise in full awareness that the quality will vary.
So I get annoyed when I quite clearly state a goal of watching x franchise and people give me unwarranted advise to skip a particular film/series because they dislike it. I feel like they weren’t paying any attention/respect to my intent.
“Why Are Rabbits Cute, but Also Kind of Spooky?” https://www.themarysue.com/bunnies-cute-spooky-tricky/
Interesting analysis of the use of rabbits in media that I hadn’t considered like the trickster, or that white rabbits with red eyes are rather unsettling.

I do wonder, whether we will look back on this in retrospect as one of the events that shook up the industry. Cus in effect Disney has released talent for hungry young rivals like Netflix, Amazon and Apple to snap up.
Star Trek Voyager S4 E14 Retrospect (spoilers) Show more
In Retrospect of Retrospect it is quite possibly one of the worst Voyager episodes (worst than the evolution one). Especially in the cultural climate today, looking back on this episode it is very troubling.
This article does a lot to provide 90s context
People having their fursuits stolen is not an everyday occurrence, but it’s not rare either. I’d say I hear such instances around 2 - 3 times a year on average anecdotally. I wonder if there’s a statistic?
Either way it does suggest a certain amount of precaution be taken.
I wonder what the success rate of return is?
I like Marie Kondo’s technique of asking yourself whether something “sparks joy”, i use it as a thought technology to ask myself why I keep things around.
In the shed there’s kitchenware like bowls and such. They’re meant to be fallbacks when stuff break, but the things aren’t breaking and my mum is more likely to buy something else. They’re just memories of what we use to use and not very good ones either.
The problem with being a conscious 3rd dimensional creature riding the 4th dimension is I can only build up more and more regret as I get older. I suppose a 4th dimensional creature sees causation ahead and has a chance to alter course. Quite how their lives plays out is a little beyond my puny imagination thereafter. 🤔💭

Aww, the fellow can’t catch a break. It’s been so difficult for Clippy since losing the job at Microsoft Word. I hope the best, keep at it! 😢
Incredible, Supernatural the CW TV series will finally end on its 15 season. Crazy run for the series that even I must respect.
I watched the original intended 5 series, but I would not want to watch it again considering my improved diet of TV shows.
Rabbit Street Preacher.
Badly Drawn Bun.
Please don’t feel obligated to follow back.
This instance is focused around the furry community, and is open to anyone interested in it. It was created by @Tiwy57 originally for a small group of furry friends, but thought it might as well be open to all fluffies and scalies !
