    This is such a minor star in the constellation of bullshit going on here but there is something darkly funny to me about the person who wrote Problem Sleuth and Homestuck throwing a hissy fit at someone for "jumping around the timeline" and accusatorily asking if she's PREPARED TO LISTEN TO THE STORY.

    It occurs to me that some people here might not have seen Japan World Cup and might appreciate it. Finest in horse racing.

    @Codeless i guess you're right, I googled john ratcliffe cosplay and john ratcliffe cosplay drama and nothing popped up. Maybe I was assuming the wrong character from what info she gave.

    Khadija Mbowe uploaded a fascinating, insightful video about Cuties, speaking from her own Gambian diaspora perspective.

    A musician and a carpenter try to make an electric guitar and a drum kit essentially from scratch with no experience.


    My favorite part is when they take the drum kit into the studio and the studio engineers are like "this is amazing".

    [EDIT] On a more serious note, here is the same musician building a guitar under the supervision (and using the machinery of) an actual luthier.

    This is a podcast that's also on YouTube (for this pod i prefer youtube because they have a slideshow with diagrams and pictures and one guy scribbles on them sometimes with red pen it's gr8) called Well There's Your Problem. They mainly talk about engineering disasters. I've seen 9/11, the Pentagon attack, some bridge collapses, oil rigs, building fires etc. They're all pretty knowledgeable and or have worked in the engineering or construction industries. There's cussing, discussion of tobacco and alcohol, sometimes they talk over each other or argue about dumb things but it's not Mean. They're friends who get Spirited. But i know folks dont like people interrupting or all talking at once during a podcast. They don't do it too often. They also have very long pods, 1-3 hours. And sometimes it takes like 20 minutes to get to the main talking point cause they'll shoot the shit or get distracted.

    I like them for their friendly chemistry and also how far BACK they go. For 9/11 they talked about why the towers were built, why it was kind of a dumb idea, what NYC residents thought of it at the time, the state of building and codes and fireproofing (apparently the towers fireproofing wasn't great to begin with and they'd been around for 20 years with questionable fireproofing upkeep by the time of the attack) and they also went into the rise of bin Laden. I knew he was part of a wealthy family but I didn't know how big or wealthy they were. Apparently their contracting firm has involvement in A LOT of Gulf and middle eastern projects. Learn a lot of background with them, along with the actual timeline of the disaster itself, and plenty of conspiracy debunking.

    Whenever there's mention of controlled demolition in an episode they joke that Bush was there or overseeing it

    I've been watching them like crazy, great background noise. Hope this helps someone with lots of time to kill.

    This was a very good video. Also I like how she came after non-black fandom again. Good. Don't fucking let non-black fandom off the hook. We don't fucking deserve to be. Especially not when so many of us go "Well I'm this marginalized identity" first as a self defense.
