I've also been avoiding Handmaid's Tale. I'm actually a bit intimidated by it. I feel like it'll be if I ignored GoT and then decided to start watching it and I'd be the one guy in the world who's like OMG!

Gomorrah is great. Also get Raised By Wolves in you.

HANDMAID'S TALE, holy shit. I've avoided this for a long time just because of all the hype, but we're three episodes in and it's incredible. Glad to see it's lived up to the hype.

We also traded some HBO Max access with a friend and they're piggybacking on our Disney+. They told us about this show, GOMORRAH, about the real Italian mafia. Based on a book that also spawned a movie. Man... we ripped through three seasons of this show very quickly. The author of the book the series is based upon has been in hiding since its release due to death threats, although I hear that he's kinda dramatizing the amount of real danger he's in as a marketing ploy. Gritty. Raw. Violent as all get out. Pulls no punches whatsoever. It makes the Sopranos look like a Disney sitcom, honestly. Supposedly the 4th season is out already in Italy and will be released here later this year. Then there will be a movie to span the gap between season 4 and 5. Season 5 is reportedly in production now.

I know a flat earther! She is totally bonkers. Once, before I drank all that vodka, I knew the term for the one-sided sort of arguments that I constantly get myself into whenever she shows up at the bar.

It's an epidemic in this country, honestly.

I lump this nonsense in with Flat Earth Retards.

My cousin is a flat earth retard. He also posts pictures of contrails in the sky over his house as if itís evidence of government planes seeding the skies with mind control drugs or whatever. Fucking lunacy.

If you have not watched the HBO Q Anon series, you absolutely should. Itís fascinating and depressing and super embarrassing.

Just finished the last book in Becky Chambers' wonderful series. The Galaxy, And The Ground Within. This series was stunning, and Chambers is easily my current top 5 SFF authors.

My favorite remains the Birds Aren't Real people.

Wait... are birds supposed to be real?
