China Miéville reads my mind
I dislike him for slightly different reasons. But these are good reasons as well that I can get behind:
I've never met [JJ Abrams]. I am not a member of his fan club or anti-fan club. I disliked Cloverfield a very great deal. I disliked Star Trek intensely. I thought it was terrible. And I think part of my problem is that I feel like the relationship between JJ Abrams' projects and geek culture is one of relatively unloving repackaging - sort of cynical. I taste contempt in the air. Now I'm not a child - I know that all big scifi projects are suffused with the contempt of big money for its own target audience. But there's something about [JJ's projects] that makes me particularly uncomfortable. As compared to somebody like Joss Whedon, who - even when there are misfires - I feel likes me and loves me and is on some cultural level my brother and comrade. And I don't feel that way about JJ Abrams.
Exclude svn files from grep
Grep is confusing enough and does not need to be even harder to use. SVN files are almost always not wanted in a search and just make finding what you want even harder. Luckily you can set a default option.
First jump in to the .bashrc file in your home directory.
Then add the options for grep in that file:
Now save and exit the file. Before it will work you need to either restart the session or enter this in the console:
Wave goodbye to all those pesky svn file.
Interview with Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko
Read it here. I’m so excited for them. It’s funny that basically anything they could have said would have come across as an insult to M. Night Shyamalan.
What did you guys think of the live-action version of “The Last Airbender”?
Konietzko: We’re just really focused on this new show right now, and kind of taking this off in its own direction and not concerning ourselves with that right now.
So you didn’t follow the casting controversy about the movie version of “The Last Airbender”?
Konietzko: We didn’t head up that film. We’re just happy to be back generating the original content in this mythology, which is what we do.
Avatar: Legend of Korra
The epicenter of the modern Avatar world is Republic City, a metropolis fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. - AvatarSpirit
I seems rumors have been floating around for months and I’ve missed them because I don’t hang out in forums much.
