Today's flavor: Authors. h/t David Brin
One of the finest storytellers of any kind, ever. Go read the first page of The Princess Bride. Tonight. To someone you love. I defy you to stop there.

I have hopes that he willed us - at long last - the "Reunion Scene"!

I still grab a towel every time I think about that scene, because kleenex just isn't enough. That was powerful stuff!
@montuos That film actually made me want to be a teacher for a short while.

No, Trevor. They don't have to be stumpers. Chances are they won't be as impactful films tend to be popular. For me, it was the fact that this movie was the first to feature the special effects it used. There was nothing like it at the time.

Sounds like my kind of social event.

On the transparency of blocking

I will preface this by saying that I completely understand why blocking is not a visible thing. I get it, I'm not arguing it. There are unbalanced creepers out there who would probably do something particularly nasty if they knew that the object of their stalking had blocked them.

That being said... I wish I could see when someone had blocked me, because while I might continue to read their posts, I wouldn't bother commenting, or otherwise attempting to engage them in conversation.

Which, aside from "feed" accounts like RSS feeds or news feeds, is pretty much the primary reason why I participate in social media: to engage with interesting people. So knowing whether they're not responding because they aren't seeing my comments, or because they're seeing them and actively ignoring them, or because they're seeing them and just choosing not to respond, would be useful information for me, and potentially beneficial for them.

Like I said, I get it. This is just me musing.

If someone has you blocked on G+ for example, you cannot see their posts but if another person you do not have blocked shares it, you see what was reshared. That is a clue you might be blocked ;) Not sure how things work on Friendica or Diaspora regarding that.
@Shelenn Ayres It's someone on Mastodon. I can see their public posts (which, as I recall, you can still see the public posts of someone who's blocked you, so as not to give away the fact that you've been blocked). I honestly don't even know if Mastodon has private posts, frankly.
AFAIK Mastodon is only public posts (i got a warning when connecting with a Mastodon user from Friendica telling me all messages to the Mastodon user would be public)

Yay! Been a while since I've seen the original (not for lack of trying) but I definitely remembered the anime style.

Hey, @Metal/Rock On Diaspora \m/ are you familiar with these guys? If not, you should be! German heavy metal a capella, and yes, I meant all those words in that order. 😉



Stan Lee Dead at 95

Most of you that read this probably also read @Syreene and so have already seen this. But just in case...
