Seattle meetup next week? Either at Bumbershoot or daytime in Tuesday after Labor Day.
I might be able to, I'll check what else I've got going on :D - Jennifer Dittrich
bump! - Andrew C (✔)
I'd love to if scheduling works; I won't be at Bumbershoot but depending on parking I can get somewhere nearby. Tuesday would have to be in the evening if you're still around! - joey
I'm flying out Tuesday evening, sorry! - Andrew C (✔)
Okay, maybe Sunday or Monday, then! - joey
I may be getting too old for some of the last shows of the night anyways. =P - Andrew C (✔)
Awesome, hopefully I'll have a weekend. My former sketch group is performing at Bumbershoot this year! - joey
Last bump? - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Oh, shoot - I'm booked solid at work tomorrow. It was a bit of surprise on Friday, and I forgot to update. I wish I weren't so far away :/ - Jennifer Dittrich
S'okay. I'll probably visit again. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
True, but I hate that I dropped the ball! Stupid work :P - Jennifer Dittrich

BASED FOB: I HATE YOU BILL O'REILLY! - by Eddie Haung
"Bill O'Reilly, to be as privileged as you are and use your platform during this critical time in American history to kick black people when they're down is disgusting. And I know that if you were able to do to black people what you did to Native Americans, what you're doing to Mexicans, I know that Asians would be next. You're just going down the aisle, checking items off your grocery list, denting all the cans in the ethnic food aisle. I SEE YOU DOGGY. So FUCK YOU and FUCK FOX NEWS." - Eric from Bookmarklet
Tangent: I definitely agree with the idea that Asian Americans end up appropriating Black culture because that's the only widespread form of American culture that isn't straight up White Supremacy and Asian Americans aren't exposed enough to Native culture to be able to appropriate it. - Victor Ganata
He's basically a parody of himself now. - Johnny from iPhone
Although I guess it's dependent on demographics because here in SoCal appropriating Chicano culture is also feasible. - Victor Ganata
Victor, come to think of it, there was an issue of Lucky Peach where the author of one piece, a Mexican-American, and his Chinese-American friend went to Mexico to eat Chinese food, and also his friend was "more Chicano than [the author]." - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Filipinos trying to pass as Chicano is obvious but yeah I definitely knew of Chinese guys speaking Spanglish and calling guys "vato", "holmes", and "ese". - Victor Ganata from iPhone

Reading about the Pullman Strike, I'm still amazed that the U.S. hasn't been an outright Dickensian dystopia this whole time. If not for the Stock Market Crash of 1929 helping trigger the Great Depression which ushered FDR into office and which killed or at least financially decimated some oligarchs, we'd probably all be literal serfs already.
Well, we've had a Great Recession and Obama thought he should be Lincoln, not FDR. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
The big difference is that 2008 didn't really kill or destroy any oligarchs. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Let's be real, though, as worse as things would be without FDR, he was still of the moneyed class. If you think about it, the New Deal was mostly about staving off revolution and anarchy. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
If he hadn't hired all those people for his alphabet soup agencies, I have a feeling someone with more radical aims could've rallied all those otherwise idle hands. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Revolution doesn't always work out well. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Yeah, but it's definitely effective at transferring wealth. It might not break the oligarchy, but it tends to change up the ranks a bit. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

Aw man, yesterday's Bumbershoot sched was light on stuff for me and today's is overstuffed.

Multiple people now (including my doctor) have told me I need to slow down a bit, relax. I have no idea how to do this. What do you do to relax?
It kind of depends. In the right circumstances, exercise is more relaxing than watching tv, but other times it's the opposite. Cooking, reading, going thrifting, and doing laundry are all things that i find relaxing, generally. Also, organizing stuff. - Kirsten from Android
Coloring. Sometimes cleaning/organizing. Going out with girlfriends. Reading. Music. - L to tha B from Android
Sleeping. - Uli
Yoga taught me how to relax. - Slippy
Knitting! Having lunch on a picnic blanket under a tree for two hours while the sun bakes me. Meditative train rides to work with music. Meditative dish washing chores. :P Naps! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Dolce far niente - the very fact that you ask what people "do" to relax speaks volumes. Exercise and hobbies can be relaxing, but mastering the art of doing nothing may be what you need - Laura Norvig from iPhone
For myself, reading, watching TV, going for a walk in a park, playing video games - whatever lets me 'let go' of doing anything else while I'm doing it. - Jennifer Dittrich
One thing I do is to consciously relax as many muscles as I can. It's surprising how much tension I carry in my face without realizing until I relax. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
What Laura said. Just staring off at nothing is something I'm trying to reclaim. Whiling away time on nothing in particular. And I'm all with Uli on the sleep thing. - MoTO: Team Marina
Learn from a cat? They're pretty good at it. - RepoRat

LB mentioned coloring. Several of my friends were coloring (yes, coloring books) for a while for relaxation. I bought some stained glass and art deco ones at the museum gift shop for a friend. - Betsy

Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott Can’t Explain the Lyrics to “Pour Some Sugar on Me” | MTV Hive
"ef Leppard is one of those rare bands where everybody on the planet seems to know every lyric to all their songs and yet nobody has any goddamn idea what any of it means. And I’m not just talking about that “gunter glieben glauchen globen” hokum that kicks off “Rock of Ages.” Their lyrics are littered with nonsensical gibberish. There is no good explanation for why “Are you gettin’ it?” should ever be answered with “Armageddon it!” “Animal” contains at least a dozen mixed metaphors, with singer/co-lyricist Joe Elliott comparing himself to the drivin’ rain, a circus, a heartbeat, a river, a shadow, rust, and a wolf capable of giving CPR. But nothing the band has ever recorded comes close to the lyrical chaos of “Pour Some Sugar on Me.” Even if you could ignore lines like “Livin’ like a lover with a radar phone” and “Television lover, baby, go all night,” there’s still that brilliantly obtuse chorus, so easy to sing along with and so utterly devoid of meaning. If you think you know what sexual act is being described, you’re very, very confused about what actually happens during sex." - holly #ravingfangirl from Bookmarklet
It's LB's fault i stumbled across this, but it is AMAZING. - holly #ravingfangirl
that last line "If you think you know..." is classic. - Bren
i love the next paragraph too: "But even when it feels like their songs were written by somebody having a stroke, it’s still infectious good fun. Hating Def Leppard is like hating birthdays or parades or hotdogs and beer at a ballgame. How can you not have affection for a band that found a way to use “rock” as a noun, verb, adjective and adverb, sometimes all in the same song? When you... more... - holly #ravingfangirl
"You have no idea what 'Pour some sugar on me' means, do you?" [Long pause] "Not a clue." [Laughs] - Bren
"You shouldn’t confuse the songs with the singer. If you actually hung out with us, you’d go, “Wow, these guys are dead normal.” We rock on stage. We rock in our heads when we write. We absolutely apply the science of rock in the recording studio to make our records sound massive and bombastic. But when we’re done and we get on the bus or plane afterwards, it’s a glass of wine and a... more... - Andrew C (✔)

Given the habits of royalty and the aristocracy, I now kind of wonder how much of the world's misery is a consequence of inbreeding and recessive genes and the possible deleterious effects to cognitive ability.
In practice, doesn't an incapacitated monarch just mean the grand viziers and so on take more control of the reins? - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, but grand viziers and regents are not infrequently royalty or aristocracy too. - Victor Ganata
Haemophilia was pretty common in pre-WWI European royal families, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were carrying other genetic disorders too. - John (bird whisperer)
And that's just the single gene disorders we *know* about. Who knows what all those recessive pleiotropic genes might have done to the ruling class's brains? - Victor Ganata
I've sometimes wondered if inbreeding can explain World War I. - John (bird whisperer)
It definitely contributed, if just because of the family politics clashing (or emphasizing) the power conflicts. - Jennifer Dittrich

Even on Trek, space wasn't "the final frontier". They time traveled and went to alternate universes.
To be fair, TOS only time traveled twice (three times if you count the three days they went back in "The Naked Time") and they only went to an alternate universe once. And TNG just copied the intro (except for s/man/one/). Alternatively, since time is space (and space is time), it's all just space(time) anyway. :) - Victor Ganata
OK, they time traveled four times (five times if you count "The Naked Time") http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki... - Victor Ganata
Plus all of ST IV! and the reboot was all about time travel, because JJ Abrams loves him some time travel. (edit: oh, I see your link includes the movies.) - Andrew C (✔)
I feel like the distinction between "parallel universe" and "alternate timeline" is somewhat arbitrary. - Andrew C (✔)
Actually, I've only watched TMP, WoK, and SfS from beginning to end. I can't remember if the TOS movies featured the "final frontier" introduction. - Victor Ganata
I think the distinction between "parallel universe" and "alternate timeline" is just whether or not that branch of the multiverse spanned more than one episode, TBH :D - Victor Ganata

"(Sorry for another parenthetical, but: O'Brian injures himself on the holodeck. He's kayaking, so it's not like he was attacked, unless he kayaks with bears, but—what about the safety protocols? Surely the system would be designed to prevent any but the most minor injuries. Because if you have a program that can dislocate your shoulder, however accidentally, you have a program that can kill. Join us next week for our latest installment in Why The Holodeck Don't Make No Damn Sense.)" - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, the holodeck is probably the most absurd piece of magical technology/plot device that Trek writers invented. Given E=mc^2, the fact that they actually create matter from energy seems totally insane when tricks with photons and force fields (or advanced haptics+/-neural implants) would suffice for a fraction of the energy cost. I figure if you're willing to accept the existence of holodecks, no illogical perversity is too great! - Victor Ganata
"That's how these stories play out, generally: The geek finds some magical shortcut to coolness, they get to enjoy the shortcut for a few days, and then they sprout fangs and murder everyone. Or else there's pig's blood at the prom or the magic box has to go back to the shop because the switch is stuck on 'Stabbing.'" - Victor Ganata

"Worf totally gets his ass kicked *a lot* " - to the point where he's the trope namer. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki... - Andrew C (✔)
Although I suppose part of it is the fact that he prefers hand-to-hand combat. Probably doesn't work too well with energy beings. - Victor Ganata
LOL, that TV tropes page points out that Spock is probably better at kicking people's asses than Worf is, and that's not even accounting for his intellect and psionic abilities. - Victor Ganata

This is why I think anti-undocumented sentiment is really just anti-immigrant (and anti-children-of-immigrant sentiment) because people do not care to make the distinction. - Victor Ganata
well, except that it's really "anti-brown", since undocument irish and english don't have a problem, and often have politicians attending their rallies. - DJF
True, it's harder to tell, but I bet if you were from Europe and you told them you were undocumented, they'd hate you all the same. - Victor Ganata
"Well, last month [in 2007] in Washington, at a rally hosted by the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform, the leading Democratic candidate for president actually did have her picture taken holding a shirt that read: 'Legalize the Irish.'

"President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws." (March, 2014) www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/obama-on-undocumented-irish-our-immigration-system-is-broken-625136.html - DJF
Yeah, I do get the feeling that the other political party is the one hinging their platform on an anti-immigrant plank. Gov. Brown (D-CA) just explicitly welcomed the undocumented to the state and he's running for re-election. - Victor Ganata
But they are loud about the Latinos and quiet about the Irish. The quotation from Obama came from an Irish news site. If he'd said something like that about the Latinos, you can bet that the Republicans would be ALL OVER it. - DJF
Nah, I agree with DJF. It's entirely acceptable for US politicians to (metaphorically) embrace Irish undocumented immigrants, even the pols that have much more nuanced positions on other undocumented immigrants. - Andrew C (✔)
Oh, I don't doubt the racist dimension. But there's definitely one party that's blocking *any* immigration reform. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

"You sure as hell won't see me going to bat for Mitch McConnell, and I'd be the last one to defend Elaine Chao's track record on pretty much anything, but this shit is low. Groob has since apologized for her "poor choice of words," deleted the offending tweets and even deactivated her Twitter account. The Kentucky Democratic Party was also quick to denounce her comments, calling them "abhorrent" and having "no place in Kentucky politics." So why does it keep happening?" - Andrew C (✔)
Yes, why does it keep happening every year? I mean, McConnell is pretty prominent and he's been married to Chao, who is also pretty prominent, forever. How are this ignorant twits getting hired by their parties without them knowing who is who? How are they getting anywhere, with such ignorant and myopic views? - Anika
Yeah, that's the thing. They've been together for ages, this happens every time. That tells me that it is either deliberate or moderately so -- they don't tell their operatives that this sort of shit isn't tolerated, knowing they'll probably do it, and it will probably get to some of the people who might vote for him.
