I watched The Omega Man yesterday, and it wasn't very good, but it did get me thinking: how common were interracial relationships in movies in the late 60s/early 70s? The William Shatner/Nichelle Nichols kiss couldn't have been more than 5 years old when The Omega Man came out.

The Boston accent is close to what British people living in Massachusetts sounded like in the 1800s.

What I’ve always liked about that couplet is that strictly speaking it should be “hanged”.

I'm watching The Mummy 3: Chinese Mummy. Like Indiana Jones 4 an Die Hard... I think 5? it tries to put some energy into a flagging adventure series by having the main character's adult son come along on the adventure and argue a lot.

It works about as well in The Mummy 3 as it does in those other two movies.

And as with those other movies, they can't stop having the main characters nudge and wink at the audience about conventions in the franchise.

That's not great, but it's a problem that can pop up in any long-running franchise. The adult son thing is wild. Three different very successful adventure franchises all did the exact same obviously horrible idea, to identical results. It's introducing a character the audience is predisposed to not like. In the father/son discord the audience is obviously going to be on the dad's side from the beginning. We have seen him go on adventures and know he can handle it, this new 20 year old snot posed punk needs to shut up and let his dad kill the mummy/nazi/European.
And on top of that, it ages the lead so loving much. A series can be going on for a bit, the actor may be getting up there in years, but as long as the action is well choreographed and the actor can still bring the energy and screen presence that worked in the first movie, it can still work. Unless they have their loving adult son hanging around. You can not ignore someone's age when they're having an argument with their adult son.

Bringing the dad in was brilliant. It had the opposite effect as an adult son, it made Indiana seem younger. And conflict with a dad is universal whereas conflict with an adult son is not.

It's very common for Spanish speaking people in my town to call people "White Devil" (Diabla blanca/diablo blanco) which I think is hilarious. My sister had a boyfriend whose mother use to call her that all the time.

Believe women.


The accent chat has reminded me that since Jason Momoa grew up in Norwalk, Iowa, it means that Aquaman, a character raised in Maine to a Maori father, speaks like someone from Des Moines. Certain lines really jump out at me, in Justice League he says to Bruce Wayne "you dress like a Bat, like an actual bat." The cadence and timing sounds exactly like a lot of friends of mine from Polk County.

It's hilarious that Aquaman sounds like someone from one of the most landlocked states in the country. I want to see fresh water Aquaman leading an army of bullheads and snapping turtles against the forces of evil.

Chris Hemsworth's Australian accent mixing in with his attempt at a Shakespearean dialect in the early MCU films mean Thor sounds absolutely nothing like anyone else in Asgard (or anyone else on the planet for that matter) and it was so distracting. He's gotten better over time though.

My local police are terrible (lol acab), but my favorite part of this letter is probably how they were totally taking a Surviving Edged Weapons course.

“Conflicting directions on knife issue
In 2019, we observed an in-service defensive tactics training course that included direction on using knives in a stab-stab-shoot, close-quarters scenario. Instructors also encouraged class members to try a selection of potential knives which they could purchase individually. These included t-handled and gut-hook knives intended to be used as weapons, not utility tools. PPB had not presented this change in the defensive tactics lesson plan to us prior the class. Numerous PPB members had already received this knife class before PPB informed us of it. PPB did not have then and does not have now any approved policy on use of knives as force tools. We immediately notified PPB of the problem of giving direction on use of a force tool without an approved policy.”

The SEW video that's a forum favorite at least doesn't have a section recommending cops ever use knives. Severely hosed up that's not the worst training thingies for cops.

As bonkers as Surviving Edged Weapons is for the obvious paranoia it likely fostered in any cop that watched it and the ridiculous satanic cult segment, it's extremely tamed compared to the batshit "warrior training" style stuff cops are exposed to in the modern day. Cops are worse now than they were in the goddamn 80s and it's because people made a conscious choice to train them and give them the legal freedom to be as awful as possible.

I have a theory about ASMR. Everyone is lonely, people don't have IRL friends. You can have online friends, and those can be great relationships, but at a basic biological level it's not really satisfying the need to be with other people. So ASMR is basically a substitute for the aspects of human contact that online relationships don't have. That's why it's all whispers and breathing and mouth sounds. It's the little audio cues that another person is in the room with you.
