This Philharmonic Orchestra version of the "Glory to Hong Kong" is really madness, the arrangement and the visuals. From dressing in Full Gear to play the music, to the teargas scenes, to the youtube a/c name "Black Blorchestra". PERFECT!
I LOVE HKers!

There are books I deplore as foolish, hateful or simply very, very poor -- but I recognise that the power to suppress books is much more likely to be used against the books I admire ~ @firstname.lastname@example.org #BannedBooksWeek https://www.bannedbooksweek.org.uk/ @BannedWeekUK@twitter.com

OMG. This is _not_ documented.

Battlestar Galactica is retrocomputing fiction. Alien supervirus wipes out all modern tech. Really ingenius justification for the retro/naval aesthetic.
Also plausible minus the alien part. Cyber-warriors get enough ahead of defensive tech that we just need to unplug it and start over. Not one super-virus but a constant barrage of them.
