Okay you can judge me for the fork part because that was pretty stupid of me but you can't judge the ice cream
I accidentally stabbed the back of my throat with my fork while eating dinner and now it hurts so I'm having extra ice cream and y'all can't judge me

Oh man... I've now decided that this is my new conspiracy theory. twitter.com/CanterRain/sta…
I don't feel like dying on this hill because I don't actually care...but I do feel like arguing and being pedantic about it just for the sake of the thought exercise. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
So are people just hating on Snyder because he's being different to be different? That I get, but objectively, I don't really see how 4:3 is inherently much worse on a 16:9 TV than other non-16:9 widescreen aspect ratios.
But y'all are acting like it's the dumbest thing to ever happen...why? Because it isn't the exact same shape as your TV? Neither are 21:9 movies, yet I don't hear many people complaining about black bars on those (even though it's almost the exact same percentage of the screen)
When it was first announced, I thought 4:3 was dumb, but it was...fine? In fact, I think a lot of the movie's shots have enough verticality for it to almost make sense. It's a bit of a weird choice, but it's definitely a choice, and seems like a conscious one.
Finally finished the Snyder Cut (took me three days because geez man I got kids) and there's a lot to talk about, but I'm going to stick to ranting about one thing: the 4:3 aspect ratio. Or rather, everyone's reaction to it.
A vaccine is like a good umbrella. It'll keep you dry most of the time. But some people are going to carry their umbrellas into windy storms, without wearing boots or ponchos, and get wet. buff.ly/3c1Ewis

After watching that video I went into a deep YouTube hole listening to everything @laurenbabic has ever done...just crazy talent. If you like metal or metal-adjacent things, check out @rhdband and @crazy88official...and the track she did with @AltermindATX youtube.com/watch?v=IV5iBK…
Once in a while, I stumble upon a new band or a metal cover on YouTube that just blows me away. This frickin' trio right here...holy hell youtube.com/watch?v=KanJqF…
According to research by Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (@A3PCON) and Chinese for Affirmative Action (@CAAsanfrancisco), hate crimes against Asian Americans increased by nearly 150% in 2020. This didn't happen by accident. Some receipts... (thread) #StopAsianHate

Oh this is a good idea, never thought of that. Except mine would say "I will instantly reply to any email, no matter how small, at all hours of the day, much to the chagrin of my entire family" so it probably wouldn't be that useful. twitter.com/lemonsand/stat…
I still think this is Nolan at his absolute best. One of my all-time favorite movies. twitter.com/Roku/status/13…

My man @WhitsonGordon nailed it with this one: And seriously - don't discount how valuable even broken gear can be! Someone out there will want it for parts, a battery, a screen, anything. twitter.com/WIRED/status/1…

No matter how many apps there are and how well-designed they become, I will always hold the command line close. twitter.com/WIRED/status/1…
We own the 2019 version, and from a living room aesthetics standpoint it's fantastic. I just get so bummed every time I try to watch a movie on it at night.
Every year Samsung updates this TV without including local dimming I just seethe with rage inside This could be one of the most baller TVs on the market, but they gimp it with a mediocre panel. Come on Samsung, you're so close to nailing it! twitter.com/tomsguide/stat…
Did you know... 🤔 capitalising the first letter of every word in your hashtags means that screen reader users like myself can understand what it actually says. instead of a random noise or having each letter read out individually.#DisabilityTwitterr

Before you buy a new HDMI cable for your next gen console, you might want to read @WhitsonGordon's explanation on how not all HDMI cables are the same anymore, and it's worth learning the new specs before you shop: wired.com/story/hdmi-cab…

OLED schmoled, I've decided I'd rather have the peak brightness and smoother motion of an LED. Easily.
Earlier this year, I tested Sony's X950H TV for an article and it was so good that I bought one for myself a few months later. I review a lot of things, but few of them are quite that convincing. twitter.com/ggrudo/status/…
If you have a 500GB PlayStation 4, you might not have enough storage for both Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War on the same console. That's how huge file sizes have gotten. But why? My latest for @IGN: ign.com/articles/whats…
Checking out Star Wars Battlefront II thanks to the Epic Store's giveaway, and woof. The PC port is...extremely janky. Mildly enjoyable campaign so far, but I'd be pretty upset if I'd actually paid money for this.
There's a lot I could say in remembrance of Fry's. But really, my only thought is "dammit NOW can we please get a Micro Center in San Diego?!"
I actually just needed to grab some new cables the other day, and used my own advice in this article—look for "Certified" in the product name, and scan the badge on the box to make sure it's legit.
Somewhere along the line, the tech community started oversimplifying HDMI cables, repeating the "they're all the same" refrain. This isn't true, especially today, and if you're a gamer, you need to shop a bit more carefully. twitter.com/gadgetlab/stat…

Oh and fwiw I've written about ways you can combat this issue on your TV at home; you can mitigate it. But the problem also needs fixing at the source, particularly with certain filmmakers who take it too far (cough) popsci.com/story/diy/movi…
Side note: weird how in music we have the loudness wars, where there's never any dynamic range in the mix, but in movies we have too much dynamic range
Remember when Apple did that whole "Mastered for iTunes" thing? Someone in Hollywood needs to start a "Mastered for a normal friggin' home environment" movement. twitter.com/thathagengrrl/…
My homies, still doing awesome work. Really interesting stuff (you know, once you get beyond the initial disappointment of this even being a thing). twitter.com/iFixit/status/…

Neighbor cat comes by the door every day and spends hours crying, scratching the door and making a huge drama. Well, he finally managed to convince the cleaning lady that he lives here so she let him in and this is exactly how social engineering attacks work.

You know you're in an all-Apple family when everyone calls micro USB a "Kindle charger"
Plus Gmail's schedule send and snooze are perfect for moving things around, too. It's not for everyone, but I officially absolve anyone of shame if you want to try it. It works well for me!
I could never remember to check my to-do apps. But seeing that "3 unread messages" icon in my Gmail favicon always pushes me to get those things done so I can delete the messages and get back to zero. Best motivation I ever had.
To elaborate on this further: I did this because I live inside my email, esp as a freelancer. The thing about to-do lists is they have to be in front of your face at all times, or you won't see/be motivated to do the things.
I do still have a note taking app for certain longer-term notes but tbh I kind of hate it and am still looking for something simple and straightforward. I should probably just use Google Docs for my notes lol
I email myself constantly. After years of avoiding it because it's not what "real productivity experts" say you should do, I finally gave up. And it's been a better system for me than any to-do or note-taking app I've ever used. twitter.com/JenMsft/status…
