we’re always daylight saving 

it’s about time we do some daylight *spending* what do we say folks

sorry for the gendered language but you might not recognize the quote I’m referencing without it.

Show thread

I honestly get pissed off when righteous anger about daylight saving time gets directed to an actually very good invention: time zones

Show thread

humanity can invent multiple vaccines for a worldwide pandemic, but we still can’t end daylight saving time smdh

second day above freezing here folks, spring won’t be long now

Also to the person who sent a one-time donation in Swedish Krona to my PayPal, I didn't realize that I had to manually accept it before PayPal automatically cancelled the transfer 😭 No need to re-send, please just know that *I* didn't reject it. And, thank you! 🙏

The Expanse spoilers 

oh you know, discovering an alien network of ring-shaped wormhole transporters built by an extinct ancient civilization and using them to explore and colonize the galaxy, that ol’ chestnut

imo it would be even more amazing if Holden weren’t such a self-centred ass

The Expanse spoilers 

Three seasons and I’ve realized that we’re basically just doing a realistic take on Stargate SG-1 huh?

I’m not even mad, this is amazing.

@ashfurrow Dark Matter taught me that the interior of every futuristic space station looks like a basement in a Toronto high rise, so anything is possible if you believe

Someday I’ll do a thread about how The Expanse makes creative and thorough use of Toronto as a filming location.

Show thread

The Expanse is good. I just wish they wouldn’t dial the freaking drama up to eleven at every opportunity. Like I get that tv is a visual medium, show-don’t-tell, etc... but damn. Things can just happen without the highest of high stakes.

(This is a general problem I have with contemporary tv, though.)

Show thread

I’m finally watching The Expanse – it’s really good! I keep having to pause to look up guest actors.

Last night: “hey wait. is that...? could it be him? it is!!!”
