Last week, basically in less than 24 hours, one of the largest cryptocurrency projects collapsed and collapsed a massive chunk of the cryptocurrency market with it.

Calling it a 'collapse' is perhaps not the appropriate way to reffer to it. Looks more like a market correction to me, evwn if it was prompted by a malicious speculative attack.

What happened and the nehind-the-scenes are quite fascinating.

Started watching this seasons new hotness anime, Spy x Family.

It's really good and i actually got the wife to watch it too. Wife appeal and normie appeal = profit!

Image

The basic premise is that the father is a spy and his mission is to get his child into eden college in order to get close to his target. He adopts a little girl who turns out to be a telepath and he finds a pretend (or maybe not so much) wife, who happens to be an assassin.

There 60 something chapters of the manga out so far.
Haven't read them yet, but intend to.

Recommend.

All this woke garbage has made me unable to not see it, even when it is actually subtle.

Disney's Cars 3 is a nice kids and family movie and i do like the character development of the main character, but the secondary main character is a latina female race car and she turns out being the bestest ever, and there's 2 major supporting characters that are strong and tough female cars that take no sass from the boys...


It's like that girl power scene in Avengers Endgame and the other message baseball bat whacking you over the head. Once you see it, you can't unsee it and it detracts from the rest of it.

Ain't it funny how racist messages from people on the internet are only a big problem when the show or movie said actor is in is complete dogshit? Like we're hearing about this now with the Obi show, we heard about it with Last Jedi and that crap remake of Ghostbusters, but oddly enough we didn't hear this with Stranger Things, the recent Suicide Squad, or the like? It's almost as if it's just used to try and deflect criticism.

The new season of Shield Hero kind of sucks...

The main character is not nearly as likeable as he was last season and the plot is kind of dumb.

It starts with fighting the spirit tortois, then reveals a hidden bad guy behind it, now they are in a new world, split up and have to regain their strength back from scratch...

I don't like it. I get the video game reference, but frankly, it feels like retreading ground and spinning in circles.

I'm probably gonna watch it to the end, but i'm not liking where this is going.


Thus far, this hasn't been a very good year for me when it comes to entertainment.
I've barely cared to watch or read a few things and of what i have watched or read most has been a disapointment and Kenobi has been a travesty.
The only winners have been Spy x Family, My dress-up Darling and Reacher (thanks again, Grendle).

I'm dreading season 3 of The Boys, honestly.

The new seasons of The Orville and Stranger Things have been pretty good so far, if you're still looking for good entertainment.

So far Season 3 of the Boys is pretty decent. I'm liking that they've got the point where Homelander starts losing his shit. Not sure what to make of the Butcher part of it, but eh, it's not bad so far. Looking forward to tomorrow to seeing another three episodes.

I'm interested in the Orville, but not sure my wife would be. Never got into the Stranger Things thing. Watched the first season and was not really hooked.

Oddly enough, I've been getting a lot of Breaking Bad and Better call Saul clips in my feed lately. Are those good?

Just watched episode 12 of Shield Heroand I'm guessing that'sit for this season.

Eh, it had some high notes, but as a followup to season 1, it kind of sucks. Average at best and it felt a little threadbear.
The pacing could have been spread out a bit more and the content and context could have been fleshed out more.

I'm guessing that was a result of the contraction to the 12 episode standard length now. Last season was 24 I think.

In any case, rather disappointing. Average, at best. Not worth watching unless you liked season 1 and want a bit more.

My brother and I just watched through all of SpyXFamily, and I really liked it.

Spy X Family is great. I watched it all and now i'm waiting for the dub to cover the full season, so i can watch it with my wife.

Two refreshing things about Spy X Family:
1 - it's not another isekai
2 - this anime season's waifu is a 27 xear old MILF :scared:

Just finished watching the first episode of Overlord Season 4.

I'm a little disappointed. No action, internal politics and rom-com stuff with Albedo.

In and of itself, these are not bad and there is some promising setup for character growth (sort of), but if I wasn't already hooked on the series, i don't think i'd care to watch the rest after this.
