London, 1963

<< This amazing space-age edifice is actually the Post Office Tower under construction in 1963. The startling juxtaposition of the battered '50s van and the vaulting futurism of the tower looks like the cover of a 1960's sci-fi novel. 😍 >>

For Gen-Z and younger millennials, there's actually a lot of social cachet attached to being an "influencer," i.e. hawking some brand's wares, i.e. selling out. According to that Atlantic article, it's now gone so far that people are *pretending* to sell out, to try to impress their friends or land sponsorships. For anyone from Gen X this would be downright baffling.

Yep. Whenever someone complains about newer being "ruined" by social justice or progressive issues, unlike the older series...I have to wonder whether they ever actually *watched* the show they claim to remember so fondly.

Like, I get that the built-in OS emoji pickers are inconsistent and nobody knows they exist. (I'm on Ubuntu, so believe me, I suffer.) But every website adding its own emoji picker to pick up the slack is kind of nuts. Especially given that there are thousands of emoji out there, and that number isn't going to go down anytime soon

Pair of spam subjects: "Start laser etching your christmas gifts" and "Stay warm by plugging this in next to your bed" - I assume the laser etcher isn't what will keep you warm.

Spam subject: "Simply create your very own glass wear" - Sounds like Cinderella finally opened up that shoe store she's been talking about.

Oddly related to the post I found earlier: I was listening to the Broadway album of for the first time in ages.

1. I know this version of the show well enough that the gaps in the recording are as distracting as the changes in the current production & movie.

2. On My Own & A Little Fall of Rain still hit me.

3. Bring Him Home hits me now. I wasn't expecting that. But now I associate it with the moment in the movie when Javert finds Gavroche's body.

Emperor Palpatine's entire plan was actually e-mailed in .pdf form to Yoda months before Order 66 happened Show more

Anyone else still playing ? I check in occasionally. This morning it pushed ads at me every time I switched maps, and I see none of ATGamesPL's games are in the Play Store anymore.

Searched for news, haven't found anything informative. Anyone know what's going on?
