I just saw a magpie use a peanut to slap another magpie in the face. 🥜

They are smart birds, and I would pay to see that.

Using weapons. Scary stuff. Seriously, corvids are on pace to be really interesting after another million years of evolution. Imagine having a civilization of fully sentient birds flying around, learning and advancing even faster than humanity did because they have our example to follow. The lack of opposable thumbs might bog them down a little bit, but they'll figure something out.

I dare say that climate change or even nuclear war might not do shit to them—in fact, either of those actually might pave the WAY for them to take over.

Casual Geographic said it best:

We’re one Thanos Snap away from seeing corvids in a driver’s seat.

I just got two Christmas CDs in the mail that I got for my parents on eBay today when they were originally going to arrive a little bit later in the week.

Seeing how happy people are with Godzilla Minus One so far is honestly making my day.

Not just because I'm excited for it myself but because it's just a pleasurable thing when people can enjoy something together. I'm a big fanatic for Shin Godzilla, and I wish more English speakers had loved it as much as I did. It's great that the new one may be that rare combination of a highly refined film that also has broad appeal and satisfies new and old fans alike. Fingers crossed, anyway!

The trailers that I've seen definitely suggest a movie that's found a good balance between the depth and meaning and craft that the 'intellectual', film critic side of the fandom wants to see, and the big action and raging monster badassery that all kaiju fans are here for.

They say never speak ill of the dead, but I say don't have the blood of countless millions on your hands.

Burn in Hell, Kissinger, may your grave forever be used as a public toilet by dogs, drunks, & the homeless.

I guess time will tell if it lasts, but it's the first Godzilla movie in 20 years that hasn't been polarizing (or outright hated) by the fandom. I'm going tonight and I'm very excited, so that's definitely gonna make my day.

This actually ruined my day, because it happened 100 years too late.

Obviously, Minus One made my day. What an era for a Godzilla fan to live through. Nothing but gratitude to Anno, Higuchi, and Yamazaki. :Megalon:

AND next I'm going to wrap a little work and then put it out of mind for the night, make Japanese style curry, get turnt up, and watch Legacy of Monsters.

Minus One. Worth the wait and just a masterpiece.

Got to see some of my students read their writing at a campus literary event. So proud!

I've got a coworker who's a self-professed hardcore Godzilla fan. Enough said.

This is the most I've ever chatted at work.
If I had a penny for every time I made a fool of myself online... actually, I'd rather not think about it.
Let's go back to just watching and enjoying monster movies.

Harvest Moon 64 is finally available on Switch Online. Played the SNES one already but man I really missed the updated mechanics of the 64 version.

I've been fascinated by corporate mergers and acquisitions for years, so Warner Bros and Paramount mering together has got my hype train rolling. That is, assuming it actually happens.
