I only relatively recently became aware of this comic, and I just finished reading volume 2. I'm debating with myself if I should watch the show now, or finish the comic first. It's on Disney+ here in Norway, which I don't currently subscribe to, but I intend to at some point, because I want to watch The Mandalorian (and give Wandavision and Loki a try too I think). But first I'm going to finish Squid Game and watch season two of Locke & Key.
Reading this review, I get the feeling the writer hasn't actually read the comic, because it sounds like the show has stayed surprisingly faithful to its source material, considering all the changes its been through. (Though there are two character references here I don't recognise; Hero's friend Sam, and Amber Tamblyn's character (who is apparently inspired by Ivanka Trump, so that could be fun).) That's not really a bad thing I think. The TV show will likely reach a much wider audience than the comic, so it's important that it doesn't just satisfy long-time fans, but those who are new to the franchise as well.
Taking the IMDb rating into account though, I'm not so sure the show is worth watching at all. 6.1 is very low for a TV show, which are usually rated considerably higher than films of comparable quality. Oh well, I'll probably watch at least the first episode and give it a fair chance.
It's been a while since I shared a Norwegian article, but I thought this one might be worth it. It's about a sketchy Russian-owned Bitcoin mining farm in rural Norway, which may or may not have been a cover for an espionage operation.
Though there is some hope that Trump will be in jail in 2024 for one of his myriad crimes.
On the other hand, considering his overall (un)popularity; maybe him running again isn't such a bad thing. If he runs in both 2024 and 2028, it could help the Democrats win three consecutive presidential terms for the first time since in more than half a century.
But even if he loses the election in 2024, a lot of groundwork is being laid for Republican-controlled states to ignore the vote and send Republican electors. 2024 could get more interesting than most of us will appreciate.
The social network, set for a beta launch next month and full rollout in the first quarter of 2022, is the first of three stages in the company's plans, followed by a subscription video-on-demand service called TMTG+ that will feature entertainment, news and podcasts, according to the news release.
In a slide deck on its website, the company envisions eventually competing against Amazon.com's AWS cloud service and Google Cloud.
Is this a case of Trump being delusional, or yet another of his scams? My money is on scam.
The deal will list Trump Media & Technology Group on Nasdaq through a merger with Digital World Acquisition Corp, a blank-check acquisition firm led by former investment banker Patrick Orlando.
Trump Media & Technology Group will receive $293 million in cash that Digital World Acquisition Corp had in trust, assuming no shareholder of the acquisition firm chooses to redeem their shares, according to the statement.
Orlando, who has worked at Deutsche Bank and BT Capital Markets, has launched at least four SPACs and has plans for two more, according to his firm's website and regulatory filings.
Did we ever get to the bottom of why Deutsche Bank is so happy to fund Trump's misadventures? I've seen some claims that they're connected to Russian criminals and/or oligarchs, but nothing concrete.
I was a bit caught off guard to see my own name and comment show up halfway through this!
For sharing on Twitter, I think I like options 1 and 3 best. 2 looks too noisy and confusing, and 4 looks kind of annoying.
When it comes to comments that can't fit in a single tweet, I prefer option 1 (media card with truncated comment). Generic comments (option 2) aren't as good at getting my attention and interest, and I have bad experiences with embedded images in tweets (which is what I assume is going on in options 3 and 4). I also like seeing the full context of the tweet.
The headline seems to be misleading. From what I understand, the man wasn't arrested for the act of uncensoring the material itself, but for the act of distributing uncensored (and copyrighted) pornography.
I've read a lot of articles about the meth epidemic over the years, but I wasn't aware of the shift from ephedrine to P2P production, or that the two superficially similar products have such different effects on users.
Does it feel like this article gets a bit side-tracked though? It starts out about this mysterious P2P meth with the l-methamphetamine removed, but never really dives further into the mystery.
