Every time I'm introduced to a Jerma video, I spend most of the rest of the day questioning reality.

Such is the way of Jerma.

So here's a surprisingly beautiful and uplifting video about one of the Internet's most beloved and misunderstood images: just what is, and where is, Michaelsoft Binbows?

It's a long video, but, I swear to god, it's worth it.

Of course it's a Nick Robinson video. That already tells me it's going to be a wild ride.



Still finds a way to get to Japan, huh.

What do you do when you can't get to Japan?

Kabuki. Linking it mostly because it came up in a conversation and I thought it was interesting. Kabuki theatre tropes show up in modern japanese media all the time, but in subtle and interesting ways. They're permated throughout japanese popular culture. It's interesting to see the roots of it.

That's the second biggest anticipated sequel I've seen.

There's the Bad. And then there's the Parody of Bad, which is funny. And then there's the Bad Parody of Bad, which is forced and annoying. And then, there's the Parody of Bad Parody of Bad, which loops back into being good again.



But then, there's that trailer, which loops a million times back into being the most atrocious, embarrassing thing I've ever seen.

Long, long ago, there was a plan for a Kingdom Hearts animated series. Now, after all these years, the pilot animatic has surfaced.

Some a bit meatier content than usual: the short story (well, takes two hours to listen to) Automata, On Cue from Tale Foundry, a Youtube channel that discusses world-building and writing. Well, they also do some fiction to demonstrate their theories.

A dark, masked man and a rescued fairground automaton infiltrate two cities. The story is billed as inspired by Terry Pratchett's style, but I don't really see it, except in some of the aside jokes. Which isn't a diss, any more than it would be a diss to a very good runner to compare them negatively to Usain Bolt. What it *is* is some quite perceptive satire of internet communities.
