“The first automated McDonald’s has opened its doors in Texas, and more such restaurants are sure soon to follow. Some have suggested that the shift to automation is a result of greedy workers demanding higher wages, but the reality is that regardless of industry, as soon as the technology becomes available and cost-effective, companies will gladly replace their human employees with machines and robots, and that’s precisely what’s now happening at McDonald’s.

Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the inevitability of automation under capitalism and misplaced efforts to blame workers for expecting to earn a living wage.”

“The flash is getting a Superbowl Commercial… the first time Warner Bros. has aired a trailer during a Superbowl in 17 years. If this isn’t the clearest signal yet that they’re doubling down on protecting Ezra Miller, then I don’t know what is.”

“Avatar: The Way of Water was a MASSIVE misfire in China, making the $2 billion break even number looking more and more unlikely. Covid is being blamed for the poor Chinese box office, and now a winter storm is going to probably be the excuse for a potential second week drop here in the States.”

Who has been looking forward to this movie?

See…the first one was a cliche plot, with a big graphical gimmick…

It skated to major success, on the back of it’s entirely novel gimmick…but as a package, it was not a great movie.

I’ve only seen Avatar once…in the theater…and I’ve never watched it again since.

It just wasn’t that great.

“Just when you thought DnD parent company Wizards of the Coast couldn’t make fans angrier, they never cease to amaze. Not content with the upcoming emphasis on digital and microtransactions, the Hasbro-owned WotC is now going to demand anyone who makes money off of fan content using the OGL now need report those earning to Wizards, and people who’ve made more than $750,000 off of DnD fan content need to pay Wizards royalties. So where does this leave stuff like Critical Role…?”
