Moon Knight thoughts and discussion 

Overall I enjoyed it. It was intriguing but also confusing for those not familiar w the comic. After Episode 4 I did research into Marc Spector's history & learned about Jake so mid-credits scene was not a surprise - esp since they showed the shaking sarcophagus in the recap.

Anyone else feel like something was missing? Maybe context of how it fits into ?

So many questions. If avatars can get powers from gods/goddesses like Moon Knight & whatever Layla turned into why didn't those other avatars get into their costumes and fight Harrow in the pyramid? And speaking of Layla, why would a hippo goddess avatar have wings?

I never quite understood why Harrow put broken glass in his shoes in that 1st scene. His version of penance? Do the bleeding feet mean the gods no longer accept his penance? But wasn't that scene in the mental hospital still in Mark/Steven's mind? But didn't the bleeding let Mark/Steven know that it wasn't real? 🤯

Morning all! If there is anyone else using to learn languages, you can add me as a friend if you want. I’m currently learning Ukrainian. Other languages I have worked on (but not completed in the app) are German, Greek, Latin, and Irish Gaeilge. I’ve also learned some Norwegian, Spanish and French through other means.

It dawned on me that I didn't put in my or my profile. I've always liked it - I saw Eps IV, V, & VI in theaters during their original runs - but I never really considered myself part of the fandom since I didn't get into the video games or expanded universe.

Then I found myself giving an impassioned speech about why ...

...and I realized I kept VHS versions of the original trilogy because even though I had the 1997 Special Edition abominations I wanted the theatrical releases...

...and I also owned the 2004 DVD trilogy release because it included the original theatrical versions but still kept the VHS tapes...

...and I had DVDs of Hardware Wars & the animated microseries Star Wars: Clone Wars...

And so on.

I shouldn't discount my fandoms because I don't participate in all variations. I never got through all of Enterprise & haven't seen Discovery but I still consider myself a fan.

Updating my profile now.

Some people ask about how to get "verified" on but...

We do NOT have such a thing! Mastodon and the Fediverse is mainly about a social experience with a good privacy system. This includes to keep as less (sensitive) data as we can on every one of you!

We are no Twitter, we do not want personal documents or data! Everyone on Mastodon is the same "rank". There are many other ways people can prove who they are by posting from their Twitter for example! :blobcatgiggle:

Please, do not send any personal data to us, we will delete this right away. Privacy first! 🔒

If you do want a verified icon, you can simply add a custom emoji in your display name with a shortcode :verified::unverified:

No matter if you're king or a garbageman we deem you all important :cat_hug_triangle:

I've secured my tickets for for Saturday at noon, so I only need to avoid spoilers for 36 hours.

It will be my first time in a theater since December 2019, when I saw Rise of Skywalker.

Are here some language filters exist? I don't know what to do with Chinese/Japanese/German/Spanish posts in my feed. I don't think they are bad or smth, I just do not understand it and I have to sroll a lot

#StarTrek fans, #Trekkies, there is now a bot reposting the birdsite feed from Trek Central if you want a way of keeping up with the latest news right here on Fediverse. :)

(Please be warned, it could disappear any time. But it's here for now.)

Anyone else been watching Moon Knight? I was finally able to catch up on episode 5, which I do have to admit was the strongest yet, but wow does it seem like there's still so much to wrap up in a finale episode.

For what it's worth, I think this was a good episode because it really zoomed in and focused on letting Oscar's charm and acting chops carry the whole episode instead of kind of a weak plot.

#MCU

A Festivus miracle! I got all 3 furbabies in the same picture AND they're all looking at the camera. Their look is totally "Mom, why are you acting crazy?" rather than smiling, but I'll take it.

Mastodon gets regular waves of new signups, and unfortunately a lot of great users bounce off almost immediately. For some, the reason is that their timelines quickly descend into chaos. Part of the reason is that Mastodon gives users a ton of ways to customize their experience, but generally doesn't make assumptions about which you'll want to use. (The mobile app is more opinionated in that regard.) So if you feel lost or overwhelmed, check out those tools, and feel free to ask for help.

I listen to Jonathan Coulton all the time but this song especially today (lewd content/language) 

I didn't get gas on Friday due to poor time management, but figured I'd fill up today while I was out. The QT near work was $3.50/gal, and during my travels today everything was $3.76/gal or higher. 😠​ I altered my route home so I'd pass by my QT and get the $3.50 price, but I didn't realize how low I was - I thought I had a good 30 miles left but my gas level line started blinking, which I've never seen before. I might have been on fumes by the time I got there, LOL. However, to my surprise the price had gone down to $3.48/gal.

And this is why I never learn lessons about procrastinating.

I am both happy and sad that the woke me at 2:30am to take her out to poop.

@MovieDiva Just an FYI you can move to another instance if you found one that you think you'd enjoy more. I know like you said it doesn't matter a lot but it is possible, if that's your preference :).

I know that it doesn't matter what server you're on and I have many interests beyond , but I'm irrationally annoyed at myself for not checking for something like @tenforward.social when I signed up.

I'm also mad at myself for not checking FB earlier today and realizing there was an arts & crafts festival going on where we were having lunch, which made traffic & parking a PITA, but also I could have made more time to hang there. I'm also annoyed I didn't see the Irish pub's post about buying customers a beer to offset having to pay for parking due to the arts & crafts festival. I like free beer.

Possible lessons here:
1. I need to be more in tune with things going on around me and my community.
2. I need to learn not to be mad at myself for petty nonsense.
