Did I mention I started a new Dragon Age Origins playthrough with the Complete Bi Overhaul, Polygamey, and Improved Atmosphere mods? It's been great.

There was some discussion on twitter about how appalling twitter is, and since Mastodon seems to be the most popular alternative I decided to check it out. And then the helper tool led me to an instance that let me be sqbr@im-in.space and I had to join.

Anyway, if you have an account add me so I have someone to follow! I can't really speak to whether it's a good social network since my network right now is just me and the status account, but it seems ok for posting and stuff. And I know I have seen interesting looking people mention having accounts, so next time that happens I can follow them.

I wrote an off the cuff review on twitter. But overall: I liked the central arc, about a bladerunner who knows he's a replicant, and is numbed to the emptiness of his life, getting dragged into the mess caused by the events of the previous Bladerunner movie. Ryan Gosling does a good job of looking beaten up and sad, and the visuals were pretty effective in a bleak cyberpunk dystopia kind of way. But for a story about the question of who counts as a real person it sure could have done with 1000% less objectification of women and exotification of POC.

Also there were a lot of random loud Inception-esque BLAAAAARP noises, at least in the Titan-whatever cinema we were in. They undercut the emotion of various scenes and also would probably be unpleasant for people with some hearing issues.

Anyway, sound balance aside I've been pondering how the basic plot could have been made into a more enjoyable movie. I'm having trouble sleeping, I think in part because all those objectified boobs did bad things to my brain, so here's some rambling thoughts.

Spoilers like WHOA, and it won't make much sense if you haven't seen the film.
