Shoutout to the forty minute fire alarm we had going off in the office today.
Finally switched from Fever to FreshRSS for my RSS feed reading needs: https://freshrss.org/
It's a bit less slick-looking (though, admittedly, Fever's interface had gotten *very* dated), but I do moost of my actual reading reading in Reeder, and FreshRSS's API is lightning fast.
(But, like. Godzilla is a fictional character created as a kind of personification of America's nuclear bombing of Japan--very definitely a moral choice that was made by Problematic Actual Humans--in a time when discussing that outright was banned. Whereas a dinosaur, even a fictional one, is... a dinosaur.)
(Like, to be clear, that Discourse would be extremely stupid, but you could still reasonably *have* it and, I'm sure--though I'm not going to check and please don't confirm this for me--many people do.)
(Like, more seriously, I saw this as tangential to kaiju fandom where, okay. You can *arguably* have The Discourse about whether Godzilla, for example, is "problematic" for stomping on Tokyo because Godzilla, arguably, is sometimes portrayed as having near-human or otherwise human-like levels of moral reasoning that animals, arguably, do not.)
Like seriously Peak Tumblr Brainrot is having ~discourse over whether a predatory animal is "problematic" or not and, by extension, whether thinking tyrannosaurids are cool makes you a "bad person."
So on the one hand I love that they changed the battle and quest music for #ffxiv SHADOWBRINGERS because it really hits that "you're in an alternate world where everything is sort of familiar but not" note but, more importantly, the is the most Anime In The Late 90s shit I've heard in years and I unironically love it:
Once again reminded that Dank Mono is such a great font... I also had thought it "died" recently (i.e. the creator stopped selling it) but, lo! It's back!
