Was Twitter good before Musk or did Musk just do so poorly it made a mediocre Twitter look amazing in comparison?

Wrestlers turning heel because of losing championships and/or opportunities to be a contender for a championship is a shitty tired trope.
It makes me think championships are like drugs, once you lose it, you turn evil.

You seem to not realize that they could just make using them for marketing and/or financial products illegal, as well as other countries adopting a similar policy. There’s also how if it’s bad enough, they can strongarm the government into letting a force into the country and grab the abusers.

You don’t seem to understand lol, not for long doesn’t matter, ever since it became a thing on certain websites, anyone can AI clone someones voice, it’s beautifully easy. There’s backups of all these ai voices. People that tried to get their voices taken down like Erica Lindbeck and Grey DeLisle were told “lol no”. Its a “genie out of the bottle” type of thing. Even something like the No Fakes Act and the Elvis Act can’t do much, a good chunk of people working on this stuff will just go underground, or don’t even live in the USA to begin with :3

AI tools are exactly that, a tool, not a replacement. VAs make it very clear why they dislike AI recreations of their voices beyond threatening their jobs, people can use the to just say the absolute worst things that they never said. It goes beyond impressions, it’s just stealing their voice. Just the idea that people want to replace voice actors with AI is incredibly dystopian
I get it you probably can’t afford professional voice actors, but just use fan voices or use your own at that point
Thats unfortunate, given how easy training ai voices are, voice actors dont really have much of a say. There are whole websites dedicated to letting you clone someones voice. Honestly, it’s amazing.

To me, quite often liking characters for being cute is like liking a cake for its sprinkles, even if the bread, frosting or even the jelly inside might be subpar.
Cuteness its always a good complement but I don’t like it as the main draw.

You know I know Knack is the “best game” according to Dunkey, but in all seriousness I actually did think those monsters looked cool. It did actually make me think, this was cool like it was gonna be transformers.

I would say both have their ups and downs. The Synder Cut isn’t the big masterpiece people keep calling it just because it fixed some parts of Whedon’s version while Whedon’s version has some good moments in it too.
It’s ironic. When Whedon made the Avengers films he was praised and when Batman V Superman came out it was criticized all over the place. It’s like Snyder and Whedon are the opposite of each other.

The Whedon cut of Justice League was better than the Snyder Cut. I’d rather not have to endure another late 2000s grimdark filter honestly

Sky funeral
My general opinion of the show has basically been summed up with “neat”.
It’s a lot like the Warcraft movie. Lots of references and there’s been a lot of care put in to make it feel like the thing it’s based off, but it’s nothing spectacular.
Pretty much.
Years ago I watched a TEDTalk about television ratings and it’s basically the only talk that’s ever stuck because it’s so applicable. Basically on a ratings scale of 1-10 in viewer surveys, the bulk of all shows are on average a 6-8 out of ten. There’s an absolute desert of shows that are rated a 2-5. At 1 and 2 out of ten are the shows “so bad you HAVE to see them” but all the rest are the endless filler material that just slips off of everyone’s mind if they have the TV on at the time. But shows rated at over an 8 are the shows that are the prime cultural movers that are practically “perfect”.
The Fallout show is at best in the 6-8 range, it’s fairly good with callbacks for the freaks but a lot of weird stuff to make the freaks annoyed, speaking as such a freak. But it’s writing and cinematography is lackluster and mid, with the former carried by the actors themselves. But I’ve called the writing “Whedon-esque” to friends, which has become the stylistic backwash of the Marvel and post-Marvel era of writing.
And being a 6-8 out of 10 show, it’s something I would watch only if it’s one incidentally and something I actually want to watch is coming on later.
But we also live in a world of streaming, so I have to seek it out. And it’s just not that good that I would have ever sought it out. So I wonder if everyone who has to go onto the timeline and say it’s “amazing” and “the best ever” is because by seeking it out explicitly to watch it, they have to take the crumbs of recognition and translate it into “this is a television event that I would have absolutely sought out purposefully fifteen years ago like Breaking Bad and Game Off Thrones!”
