    The difference for me is that Avatar was made to be viewed in 3D. And Avatar in 3D is still the best experience I've ever had in a movie theater, even though I'd rate the movie a 6/10 without the 3D.

    Dead Man's Chest had far better CGI work than Avatar did three years later.

    I grew up next door to Bob Ross. He filmed some of his Joy of Painting episodes in his garage, and he would put his paintings out to dry on top of the bushes in his front yard. He was always nice to me and the same person he was on the show. He didn't really get famous until after his death, so it's still weird to see him everywhere now.

    Where should I start if I've never gotten into anime, but I absolutely loved Castlevania? I've never been able to get used to the animation style in series like One Piece.

    I'm still using my SE and it's great, but I do wish the screen was a little bigger.

    Reading through this page, and man, this is the dumbest idea Reddit has tried yet—by far. And I remember Reddit Notes. You think karma farming and "power mods" are bad now?

    What if the subreddit was already built around something like high-quality memes? Asking for a friend.

    Seriously though, I've taken HQG private before, and I think it negatively effects Reddit ad revenue or something, because I'll get a message from admins pretty quick about it. I've got the whole sub locked for at least 24 hours right now. It's not much, but I guess it's something.

    Kate Tempest's Let Them Eat Chaos is the best concept album I've ever heard, and one of my favorite albums in general. The album follows seven people who all live on the same street. The lyrics are just perfect.

    A sample section of one track:

    Tunnel Vision

    She's screaming, she's screaming
    The drones turned her beautiful boy into a pile of bones
    No body to bury, nobody is home
    Running from war, the boat's full, the boat's sinking a mile off shore
    No beds in the hospitals, our minds are against us
    Imagine your daughter was gunned down defenceless on her way to school
    There'd be uproar
    But she's collateral damage, it doesn't matter
    Now if our kids are fine, that's enough for us
    You can't love into a vacuum, there's got to be a limit
    Welcome to the biggest crime that's ever been committed
    You think you and I are different kinds, you're caught up in specifics
    You and I apart are easier to limit
    The illusion's so complete it's impossible to bring it into focus
    Cinematic stock footage, you think people are locusts
    Uniform men keep unleashing explosives
