Why do you always come up with a fitting response. Your meme game is off the charts.

[-] ummthatguy@lemmy.world 7 points 2 weeks ago

You flatter me. I know they can be hit and miss at times. What matters is that it's something that makes me laugh and I continue to have fun doing it. Glad you like my work... and thanks.

I call it the shotgun approach .... you fire buck shot everywhere and most of the time you miss ... but given enough shots fired, eventually you hit your target.

This is an accurate statement, but (running with the analogy) I like to think ummthatguy carries a benelli compared with the rest of us lol

Btw, side note, sorry if this sounds random (I intended to comment yesterday but got busy and am now just remembering), but the two spirit story you tell is amazing and is a concept I think modern western society could really learn from. So thank you for dropping this knowledge on us from time to time, it's really cool and much appreciated. There's an alternate universe out there where a legit First Nation consultant was asked to advise on Chakotay's back story and development on Voyager, and I imagine stories like this being woven into that show's fabric. Wouldn't that be something? Ok I'm done rambling haha, you have a good one. ๐Ÿ––

The Chakotay fiasco was pretty messed up.

But as a teen growing up in the 90s and seeing the Chakotay character .... it still had a big impact on me. When I first learned of his character, there was no internet (or the internet as we know it) and it was years later that I learned about the whole thing about the fake consultant. For a few years before I learned about the background, Chakotay had a major impact on me. I thought the whole character had a lot of cliches and stereotypes and I even knew that back then but still I felt really proud that they included any kind of indigenous character in there, even if it was a bit cheesy or goofy. And for a few years after, I really liked the character.

Then I learned about the background and the whole game consultant. Then I liked the character less.

But now I'm starting to appreciate the Chakotay character again. I think Beltran was performing in good faith, they just happened to have the wrong person as a guide and reference. So now I think of it all differently. I enjoy Chakotay's character now just because he is one of the first, a flawed first but at least a first.

I must be hallucinating, I thought I already replied. I hear you about Chakotay, I think I went through similar phases of opinion on the character. Yeah, Beltran did appear to perform in good faith, so I can't fault him either. It's awful that it even happened, though.

I grew up watching TOS reruns and was exposed to pretty good representation via Sulu. There was a noticeable difference between Sulu and all other Asian roles on TV and in the movies when I was growing up (80s), and it sure sucked seeing all the gross stereotypes and blatant racism played off as jokes. I'd imagine you can probably relate. Representation matters, especially when you're a kid!

Reach the stars

Fly a Bird of Prey

Dream a dream

To be... or not to be

[-] TheGiantKorean@lemmy.world 4 points 2 weeks ago

Magnificent. This really needs to be in it's own post.

[-] negativenull@lemmy.world 16 points 2 weeks ago

Now there's a movie I haven't thought about in a very long time! This is spectacular!

Turn around
Look at what you see
In his face
Violent bloody screams

Make believe I'm everywhere
My cloak is bending light
Written in my foe's blood
Is the answer to my neverending glory
Ah-ahhh-ahhh-ah-ahhhhhhhhh

Reach the stars
Flying at warp factor three
A team of screams
And what you stab will be

Raids that spill their secrets
Will unfurl from their bowels
And there upon a bloodied corpse
Is the answer to my neverending glory
Ah-ahhh-ahhh-ah-ahhhhhhhhh

Glory
Ah-ahhh-ahhh-ah-ahhhhhhhhh

Show no fear
All they can do is pray
At your command
The death of some new prey

Raids that spill their secrets
Will unfurl from their bowels
And there upon a bloodied corpse
Is the answer to my neverending glory
Ah-ahhh-ahhh-ah-ahhhhhhhhh

Neverending glory
Ah-ahhh-ahhh-ah-ahhhhhhhhh
Neverending glory
Ah-ahhh-ahhh-ah-ahhhhhhhhh
Neverending glory
Ah-ahhh-ahhh-ah-ahhhhhhhhh

/c/TenFoward: Your home-away-from-home for all things Star Trek!

Re-route power to the shields, emit a tachyon pulse through the deflector, and post all the nonsense you want. Within reason of course.

~ 1. No bigotry. This is a Star Trek community. Hating someone off of their race, culture, creed, sexuality, or identity is not remotely acceptable. Mistakes can happen but do your best to respect others.

~ 2. Keep it civil. Disagreements will happen both on lore and preferences. That's okay! Just don't let it make you forget that the person you are talking to is also a person.

~ 3. Use spoiler tags. This applies to any episodes that have dropped within 3 months prior of your posting. After that it's free game.

~ 4. Keep it Trek related. This one is kind of a gimme but keep as on topic as possible.

~ 5. Keep posts to a limit. We all love Star Trek stuff but 3-4 posts in an hour is plenty enough.

~ 6. Try to not repost. Mistakes happen, we get it! But try to not repost anything from within the past 1-2 months.

~ 7. No General AI Art. Posts of simple AI art do not 'inspire jamaharon' and fuck over our artist friends.

Fun will now commence.
