Not a huge surprise. The bill was a huge mistake, and I doubt any republican (who wanted to keep their job) would have voted for it anyway. Anything that makes the republican party look bad is a win though I guess.
I feel like rap is spending way too much time talking about who the best of the best is. You've seen this serious increase in diss tracks and this rapper talking about so and so. Lyrically it's all very stylish, and diss track are still few and far between. I just want this discussion of who is the greatest to end really. In my eyes there isn't anyone that could possibly be the best at something so rabidly subjective. Maybe that's just me though, and I guess in some regard the challenge of competition drives creativity.
I did like the track though, and I'm interested to see what Kendrick does this time around.
I doubt anything significant will change with the profile pages, I doubt people will even notice or care enough about them. I mean at this point didn't the CEO of Reddit come out and openly modify posts on Reddit. People were mad for a few weeks then it was business as usual. I don't see this being any worse.
The troupe is pretty prevalent in almost every mainstream anime of the starving protagonist. I personally don't enjoy it, but at least there is enough in this anime for it to kind of make sense. They have a massive ship, two smaller ships, and literally no other crew piloting the ship. I just don't know what it takes maintaining a ship of that size from the salary of two bounty hunters (which isn't really two as they hunt the same bounties), and just not knowing enough about bounty hunting. Now I say this in comparison to other anime I've watched before, this is so far the most plausible scenario I've seen created.
No real way to tell what economics look like. Beef might be a luxury item not worth spending the money on. They may actually have the money for these things, but refrain from purchasing it at the cost of getting caught in open space with no fuel.
Neither am I to be honest, I don't know enough about Japanese culture to answer the question really. I only know that perspective can inextricably change how we view everything, future included. To give an example we've talked about before in a previous thread unrelated to sci-fi. Godzilla and the entire structure of the kaiju culture pretty much arose from the fear of nuclear warfare. That is a perspective Japanese culture holds almost on their own, being the only nation a nuke has been used on in a war-time capacity. While it's definitely apparent that Japan over the years has developed a strong westernized culture, its hard to say if their science fiction looks like our own. What they fear in their day-to-day lives, or see as worthy of development varies.
I've only ever watched the first few episodes of Cowboy Bebop, although every person I know that indulges in anime has told me to finish it. I never do, but hopefully with the organization of all of this I can see it until the end.
I'm definitely going to agree with klein that the world they've created is definitely an interesting one. I think it's an interesting take on the expansion into space being something like the wild west almost uncontrollable by sheer space alone. I'm also curious if this anime will clash at all with Japanese culture, and their perceived notions of what the future looks like. From the first two episodes I get a very westernized vibe from the whole thing.
Frank Ocean's new single, Chanel.
I guess it depends on your definition of fair, and your definition of interesting? Perception is pretty ridiculous. If we assume that we are talking from my own perspective, I'm pretty sure the world would be a lot cooler if things were fair. I could probably live to see some awesome technology.
The only thing I can really say to this is, is before Milo was big he was literally untouchable by normal means of arguing much in the same way Trump did it through his campaign. It was endless deflections, attacks on character, etc. (trolling stuff). The issue was that his speech began to gain traction, and what used to be words slowly began to trickle into action by his following. His speech wasn't defeated because we finally convinced him of common sense, it was just the people controlling his ability to speak took it from him. If you want to talk about quashing his speech, look at him right now. He lost his status, his job, good portions of his base, some of his outlets for speaking. All of those are essentially people taking active roles to stop the dude from speaking whether it be at a conference, in a book, or on a website.
