Mastodon has been brimming with interesting stuff this week.
Today was cold enough that I wore my bootleg Xenoblade Chronicles Monado hoodie all day.Posted at https://seizemeans.com/@apollo/109968941547409048
My lazy ramen hack these days is adding sauerkraut to kimchi instant ramen.Posted at https://seizemeans.com/@apollo/109968975822798534
The latest Asians Represent Podcast is an exploration of OSR (Old School Renaissance) with @danielhkwan and Noora Rose discussing the movement and dispelling some misconceptions. I was very reluctant to explore OSR TTRPGs for a long while, thinking it a space of conservatives unhappy with the genuine improvements made to make TTRPGs accessible to marginalized players. This discussion has me curious enough to start poking around.Posted at https://seizemeans.com/@apollo/109981970100960694
Sunflower Station have had a string of great pop singles and “Walang Dahilan” continues that. Plus that Game Boy on the cover has me intrigued.Posted at https://seizemeans.com/@apollo/109982357247389079

Ten years ago we hosted a show by the fantastic Birdbone Theatre (https://www.birdbonetheatre.org/) in the living room of the house I shared with a bunch of super rad folks. It remains a favourite of the many events we held in that space.Posted at https://seizemeans.com/@apollo/109985405973995157
Supports put in place to help people during the early pandemic reduced childhood poverty here in Nova Scotia by nearly 25%.
A more ambitious and permanent program could end it.
The policies to end poverty exist but Liberal and Conservative governments have chosen not to help.
Nova Scotia’s conservatives promise someday to have a target to reduce rather than eliminate childhood poverty.https://seizemeans.com/@apollo/109994245684097560
On tonight’s episode of Rampage, Riho and Nyla Rose’s match was another great match between two of my favourite performers. They used the size difference and underdog struggle to make Riho’s win seem a triumph. When Nyla turns face, I’d love to see these two tag together and build up a case for a women’s tag championship.
The Outcasts story leaves me bored, though; there are so many great performers I’d rather see in the spotlight.Posted at https://seizemeans.com/@apollo/110002992878786756
I saved these panels from FF #7 when I read it back in 2013. Writer Matt Fraction was always one of the good ones.Posted at https://seizemeans.com/@apollo/110007456362261621
