Sigh, spent the morning arguing with people that believe the fake reports that Antifa started the Oregon fires. There was a post out that Medford had arrested 6 Antifa people for starting the fires...which Medford Police said was false and Douglas county has asked people to stop calling 911 inquiring about Antifa because it is false...and there are many people that are calling the cops Fake News because they know Antifa started the fires. Most are random internet people, but I have talked to at least one coworker that believes it as well, although he said that maybe the police are right.....

Really not impressed with human right now.

Saw a shared pic of the falling man from 9/11 today. It shatters my heart every time

Also there’s a Patrick Sullivan who’s name is at the memorial at Ground Zero. He worked in
Finance just like me. Seeing his name written there is very sobering.

COVID cases confirmed in the area i work, we're told we still have to come into work and "take all necessary precautions"

I'm still working with co workers who aren't even bothering to wear masks. (Over here customers need to wear masks when inside a shop but staff aren't required to because we have a "protective screen")

If Sixty's still doing odds i think i'm about to take the lead!


In the words of countless postings on the WoW forums: Can I haz your stuff?

EDIT: Speaking of WoW...I may get back into it since my guild is getting back together

I may be being a moron here, but i don't really get the whole Mulan controversy.

From what i can tell, it's because they filmed some scenes in a part of China where some of the internment camps are located, and don't get me wrong, i'm not trying to belittle the awful **** that's happening in these places, but i don't think it's fair to place the blame with Disney here, this is a way bigger problem , and i've seen way more people angry at disney then people actually mad at their goverments for just watching this happen

Like, they're making a film based in china - it's not unexpected that they want to film some of it in the location it's about, and if they hadn't filmed there i guarantee we'd be reading 100 articles about how "terrible disney reboot is pure western trash" or whatever, it just feels like people hate Disney, and people hate live action remakes of movies so are just using this to score points against something they already disliked rather then the actual major problem here.

People hate corporations. People love recreational outrage over stuff like this so they feel Like they stand for something in their meaningless little lives

A production as massive as Mulan is bound to trip over some things, so people act like those are actions as bad as, say, putting people in internment camps.

It’s just noise. Ignore it.


Also, by the way, watch as the entire focus from the media and the people outraged go completely on
Disney instead of those responsible for the camps. It’s a total joke.

If people are upset about the Chinese camps they should pressure their government officials to do something. In general people aren’t doing that bc China manufactures the world’s ****; so I cannot be bothered to get outraged over lesser crap like the Disney thing. Until we sanction China I don’t care about Disney filming there.

Wait, how can muffins be bewbs if muff diving is about the southern bits :confused:



I think the Mulan Uighurs thing is partly about the hypocrisy of a company that positions itself as progressive, abandoning those principles for that sweet sweet China money. Think it started with them removing or hiding Finn in Star Wars posters in China, which got people talking, and this is another example - but more egregious as what they’re accused of doing to the Uighurs is hella messed up. Similar with NBA and China, people are seeing these organizations that flex progressive and fight for social justice where it’s safe for their bottom line in the western world, but roll over quick for that juicy China market, and are starting to call out the BS

The biggest thing I don’t like about new Mulan is what they changed about her character. In the cartoon she was just a normal person who had to put in the work with grit and determination to succeed in the army, but in the movie she was born magic and just needs to Be Herself to succeed. I think that’s a pretty trash message for my daughter.

Also, this is hilarious (contains spoilers)

I’ve never seen any of the Mulan movies. Would like to take Emily but I haven’t liked any of the Disney live action remakes

Beauty was ok cuz Emma Watson but it wasn’t great

I hear Jungle Book was great tho



Im amazed at how people constantly expect corporations to be moral entities. If people don’t think they are first and foremost out to make a return for their shareholders, then they should be more mad at themselves for being dumb and not understanding the world

At the end of the day, Disney has done better things with Star Wars than before they had it, so they make a good product and will continue to get my business. We liked the Disney cruise we took too

Eh, mixed bag. I didn’t think the sequel trilogy was any better than the prequels. I’m loving Mando, but Clone Wars was hella strong too. Disney wiped out the extended universe, which I don’t see as positive handling. I don’t think they 100% bungled it, but I’m not sure they improved much.

I thought cartoon Mulan was one of the better 90’s Disney cartoons - maybe top 3, certainly top 5 imo. I haven’t seen new Cinderella or Beauty and the Beast. Princess stories aren’t particularly interesting to me; my daughter watched those while I was at work, and I’m not interested in watching them for myself.

I certainly don’t expect corporations to be moral entities, but if they’re going to embrace Woke Capitalism, I’m going to laugh when they get called out for hypocrisy ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I enjoyed new Jungle Book. I thought it was fun. I’m a big Bill Murray fan, and enjoyed hearing Christopher Walken sing I wanna be like you-oo-oooo
