Sleeping at night only helps the cisheternormative elf patriarchy.

Today I found out that I need to be vaccinated against Hep A, Typhoid, Japanese Encephalitis, and Rabies for my trip to Borneo. Maybe Hep B if I'm feeling frisky.

Also, I won't have computer access for mucht of it because evidently I'll be in the jungle. I'll try to take lots of pictures, though.

Those can get expensive. We looked at the vaccination costs before our Colombia trip and just said fuck it, we probably won't contract malaria in the third largest city in the western hemisphere.

Apparently the older malaria treatment with more side effects is way cheaper, so I'll probably do that, since I'll be in rural areas for a bit.

Much of this also might be useful when I go to Peru this summer.
I mean, one can hope, right

Fuck, at this point, I'd take both the doxy and the Lariam, to be safe - knowing people to have contracted the "bad air" on either - however, not both together.  It might be overkill, still that depends on exposure.  Is there dengue in the region?  Also a pest better not left neglected.

Goddamn I loved Birdman.

The film takes the critique of dumb superhero movies and uses it as great metaphor or analogue for blissful ignorance.

When more and more of these super hero films try to go "Dark" and "serious" and instead end up being absurdly contradictory morose + black rubber (dark knight rises) or hollow dry wells devoid of emotion like Man of steel, Birdman really hangs the context of the superhero story where it should be, blissful idolised escapism.

The film is on the surface about the theatre which is not something I know much about, nor would normally go to a film to see, its about the failed once superhero film actor being ground down by all of lifes little bits, as he tries to make a play that goes more and more disastrously.

The film uses a little superhero imagery as escapism and a parable for dumb ignorance, not proposed as a solution for lifes problems, but as the effect that manifests in the minds of those incapable of coping.

I haven't done it justice, or I've over hyped the parts I liked and will cause people to have expectations going into this.
2014 was an awful year in cinema for me, this is the first film I've enjoyed in a long time.
Regarding the theatre, I guess I took it to represent the narrator's mind, or some similarly cavernous construct.  It was funny how escapism was then equated with levity.  My personal favorite take-away is to remember not to let the roof-door lock behind me, particularly when wardrobe is compromised :lulz:

When I grow up I want to be an alarm clock.
The logo makes me think of Trystero from The Crying of Lot 49.
I can't help thinking that the defining characteristic there was it being a muted horn.
I know. It makes me think of it, but I do realize it's not exactly the same. I just don't see too many horns with that particular loop in the arena of logos.
Yea, then it occurred to me how suddenly, thanks to the friendly gods of cognitive bias, I saw it more since my last post than I ever did before :lulz:

"I was all thinking double- helix, but then it turned out there was two of them."

poppycock, this is the best sport ever. ALL HAIL CHESS BOXING! :D
And I even missed the golden apple first time round.  Just realized it was in the picture, blimey.

Hey now, combat pissing is a perfectly viable mod, and works great when combined with Schlongs of Skyrim.  The real question is whether it will ever be patched to be compatible with Hitler in Skyrim.

But yes.  People are already complaining about not being able to mod the game to make the female characters more attractive (because DICE owns the copyright to the Frostbite engine, and wont release a modding kit).  At least the guy complaining he couldn't force a lesbian character to have his male character's babies didn't get much support....
I know, it's truly obnoxious.

That's cool, sapient, been a really long time since I heard that one.  First thing I thought of was /sentient/, now I'm just basking in the difference between them.  Made my day.

The vamps have drained me of all concern for the zombies dancing in my side-view mirrors, however much more closer they are said to be, rarher than appear therein.   I can't still cross my eyes enough, at this distance, to really make them pop.

A little vintage commemoration

DT is Dynamic Tension. Makes me want to shake Charles Atlas by the ha...aaaaaaaand!

Basically, apply tension to the muscles all the time or more intensely, briefly in workout scenarios. It translates to the way you sit, the way you stand, the way you lift things (pretend they're heavy and flex accordingly) muscles should always be rippling. Move through the different groups. The tipping point comes when the body is trained like a dog, it expects it. Your muscles will crave input. Path of least resistance is to give in to the demands of the machine. Flex. Constantly.

Try sitting in a room that is a good bit too cold for comfort without developing hypothermia and start flexing everything, arms, shoulders, abs, pecs, lats, obliques, the works. This will heat you up enough to be comfortable but only if you're flexing a bit of you at all times. It's almost like a cheat but it does the job for me.
I'm so high on cortisol that I administered the hypothermia kit to my dog.  All is well.
