Movie Trailers Are Killing Movies
  • ...when even the drafthouse is doing substandard presentation, what's the point of going to theatres anymore?..they lost the plot when they added recliners and jumped the shark upon selling to sony...

  • MTV is turning 43
  • ...at least through ninety-five they still ran music videos overnight and weekly themed shows (120 minutes, headbanger's ball, MTV raps) at specific timeslots, but by the mid-nineties music videos had been relegated to graveyard-shift filler as the network increasingly focused on conventional programming...

    ...fourteen years is a pretty fair assessment, methinks...

  • Neurodivergent threat
  • ...i stocked up on several hundred high-efficiency incandescent (short-life halogen) bulbs the week before retail sales were banned completely, which should last me about three more years despite their pitifully short lifespan compared to traditional (previously-banned) incandescent bulbs...

    ...while LED lighting's improved over the past decade and admittedly surpasses notchy-as-fuck compact flourescent bulbs, i can only hope that LED technology evolves further to offer less-abhorrent spectra by 2028, elsewise i'll be seeking black-market imports after my reserve incandescent bulbs are exhausted...

    ...is that not the case any longer, are they adding new content?..

    Dominate Person - Indefinite Duration

    ...how would you characterise dominate person cast with indefinite duration?..

    ...upcasting dominate person at eighth level can maintain up to eight hours with concentration, so i'd be inclined to consider twenty-four hours duration equivalent to a ninth-level spell, but perhaps i'm under-gauging the difference in power between eighth and ninth-level spells?..

    ...regardless, in this particular case it was cast with indefinite duration plus disadvantage on the saving throw against a hostile player character, which i'd like to translate into mechanical terms: maybe a ninth-level casting with heightened metamagic plus silvery barbs?..

    ...i'm playing with a DM who has a poor grasp of fifth-edition's mechanical balance and i'd like to help him understand just how adversarial his homebrew and houserule tendencies are leaning, especially for early tier-two gameplay...
