How is The Watchers (2024)?

We're looking at movies to watch for Father's Day and my dad has already watched most of the ones out right now, so that eliminates the ones I want to see (Furiosa, The Fall Guy) and he's not interested in Planet of the Apes. That basically leaves the Watchers.

Anyone see it yet and have any opinions on it? Going either way to spend time with my father, but want to know how low to set my mind expectations lol.

Good Place to Start With Ursula K. LeGuin?

I've been seeing her name a lot lately in terms of good science fiction and fantasy. I feel like I've lost so much attention span in terms of my ability to read and stuff and I'd like to start getting back into it, perhaps starting with her (or Terry Pratchett lol).

If I start with her, what's a good place to start with her work?

  • That's amazing! What a happy article. I don't even care about botany but the way it was written made the happiness of the researchers absolutely contagious. I couldn't help but smile =)

    Honestly, I just love to see things we thought were extinct still alive.

  • USA | Alito Says SCOTUS Should Push Nation Toward “Godliness” in Secret Recording
  • Well that's terrifying. I'm starting to think you can't have a real democracy without strong recall abilities on politicians. The fact that these people are untouchable in office no matter what we find on them is insane.

  • Are Men Okay? – SOME MORE NEWS
  • He has the occasional show on happy things, too. I like the shtick but it did take me awhile to warm up to it, and I could see how others couldn't get to that point. Tbh, I think the puppet helped me, too. Muppets automatically add silliness and happiness to any show. Except for maybe the Dark Crystal lol.

  • fediverse platform for a schools community network
  • It definitely seems like a good idea for education services, weather services, local municipal services, and basically all important government institutions to make important announcements and updates via a service they can host themselves or is more distributed, like Mastadon, instead of via Twitter where they have to obey the whims of people like Musk.

  • PSA: Alternatives for the most popular lemmy.ml communities
  • Smaller instances are also less likely to get defederated by other instances, so unless your admins or mods are quick on the defederation, you get to see everything the fediverse has to offer. Not everyone likes that, of course, but it can be a good perk depending on the user and their admins and mods.

    I also really like the idea of interest based instances. I hope we see those grow bigger rather than everything being put on .World and .ml. I need to post and comment on instances like programming.dev or ttrpg.network more.

  • First Look at Season 12 of Futurama
  • I thought a lot of the last season felt really dated already strangely enough. But I'm still willing to give it another chance, I just probably won't be rushing to watch the new episodes like I was with season 11.

  • Happy cakeday, lemm.ee!
  • I agree! I wanted an instance that didn't decide what I could or couldn't see one way or the other. Let me decide and I'll block the users, community, or instance that I find intolerable. I'm sure it leads to a lot of people who dont agree with my politics in here, but it's worth it to be able to interact with most people on the fediverse.

  • What is the up with the beef between Drake and Kendrick Lamar? And what about J. Cole?

    I know they're posting diss tracks against each other, but I'm not sure why? What made this start? And how was J. Cole involved? And how has this feud evolved so far?

    I feel so out of the loop on this one! All I see is reaction images of the songs and Kendrick destroying Drake, but without the context of why they were posted, I'm still confused.

    [Question] What songs do you listen to when lifting at the gym?

    I was inspired to listen to a few new artists at the gym recently by an FD Signifier video on how lately female rappers are going hard in a way you can lift to while recent male rappers have mostly been going for a more, calm, rambling flow that is probably better for when you're relaxing on drugs or driving or something.

    So I picked a couple of the female rappers he mentioned that were newer than my aged music tastes (Latto, Megan Thee Stallion, etc.) and added some of their songs to my lifting playlist and ya, some of their songs went pretty hard.

    I'm wondering if there are any other good artists I'm missing out on keeping the same rotation forever, so I thought I'd ask the class.

    What songs do you listen to when trying to get pumped at the gym?
