    Is anyone a member of lobste.rs ? I find their idea of a public moderation timeline very intriguing. [edit] For people not familiar with the site, this is what I mean.

    Seeing that's 20 to 30 years ago, I wouldn't really call it recent. :)

    Thank you. Some of them I knew about, but I haven't been into an African music mood for a long time, so maybe I'll catch. :D

    Isn't rap+metal just nu-metal, genre which has a pretty long history?

    But I think that most of these novelty mashup bands suffer from having very unconvincing (non-trü) metal sections, unlike BABYMETAL which is pretty good.

    Despite the low numbers of players I am glad that id/Bethesda are still investing in the game with periodical updates and improvements.

    Personally I'm not a fan of the champions mechanic, but I guess it makes sense for today's shooter demographic that's more used to Team Fortress and Overwatch than to previous Quakes.

    Also I am a bit puzzled how bad the game does on twitch, barely anyone is watching Quake, even though I feel like it doesn't require a lot of complicated knowledge to get into (like mobas), and that there can be some pretty spectacular plays sometimes.

    Just a reminder that the games are still up today. We're up to round of 12 and probably will be some 12 more hours of games. :)

    Sony Xperia XA2 running Sailfish OS. It was a mid-range phone when it was launched, so not expensive when I bought it relatively recently.

    I won't be upgrading any time soon, as it does everything I need a phone to do: run Sailfish OS, dual SIM, decent build quality.

    I don't know if people here are into twitch shooters, but one of the biggest Quake Champions tournaments of this year is happening now in Italy at Lucca Comics and Games.

    If you ever were into competitive Quake, this tournament has names that you might have heard before in the previous iterations: Rapha, Cooller, Toxjq but also new young players.

    I've put together these couple of examples that had a big impact over me in the past years:

    Peter Greenaway - he has very peculiar films, the very definition of "cinema d'auteur" in my opinion - where renaisscentist cinematography combines with weird, mystic stories, to create a very visceral experience for the viewer.
    The most impactful for me was "The baby of Macon" where almost in a single take - to underscore the "play within a play" motive of the film - he tells a very disturbing medieval story of a "virgin birth" baby and its exploitation by church and society. Another famous-ish film is "The cook, his wife and her lover" where Helen Miren and Michael Gambon give wonderful performances.

    Greenaway's involvement with musicians such as Michael Nyman and Alexander Balanescu that give his films another pretty distinctive element.

    Another favourite of mine is the non-narrative film "Baraka"from Ron Fricke, where we don't have a story in the traditional sense, but the visuals do a spectacular job of presenting world's beauty and misery. See this excerpt from it on the music of Dead can Dance - which is the most moving ensemble of music and images for me.

    Fricke has more of these non-narrative quasi documentaries that mostly deal with the similar theme of humans impact on the planet, the follow-up to Baraka, called Samsara, and, only as a cinematographer, Koyaanisqatsi.

    Check out BBC's 'Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell' a very good series after Susanna Clarke's eponymous book. Best representation of a fae antagonist I've read or seen in pop culture.

    OK, I'll give you that RedHat is trying to push systemd onto people. But as long as you can install Gentoo with elogind and a random non Gnome UI stack, you are able to use linux without systemd. You stated a very general statement which is not true.

    Also I don't accept your statements (before you add some proper citation) about pushing out other projects and unstable logind API, etc, etc.

    This is my last comment on the subject. We are of different opinions and that's fine by me.
