I seriously feel dirty afterwards.

Daughter and I just can't get into this season of Doctor Who. The writing is just not hitting home for us.

I’ve been contemplating watching Bodyguard, but I also like Hasan Minaj’s Patriot Act, and he criticised it as being Islamophobic.

This was the first I’d heard of that particular complaint (and it otherwise gets good reviews). Anyone watched it and want to comment?

Is it barely noticeable or say, Homeland-level blatant?

This season of Who is interesting. Chibnall seems to be sold on going back to "each episode must have some educational content", which was in the original pitch. And every new Doctor takes a while to gel, for in-canon and meta reasons. I like who this Doctor is becoming though some of the stories are clunky.

On the upside, it's shot so much better. Whittaker is great. And the acting, even in eh-written roles, has been genuinely great. Watch the latest one, about the Partition.

I didn't have the same person connection to the Punjab episode of Doctor Who, but some people really did. Read the comments below the review: https://io9.gizmodo.com/yaz-finally-steps-into-the-spotlight-for-a-poignant-doc-1830370490

On a tangent, tell us something we don't know, GRRM.

To be fair, I wonder how Tolkien would have coped with deadlines in the social media era...

There wasn't a lot of interest in his books when he was writing them; he could afford to take his time.

Apple, being a premium-dollar sucking brand, I think would do well to soon after the holidays introduce AppleTV+SurroundSoundSiri to feed this newly introduced monster.
Maybe also intro the new Mac Pro 8K at same time.

If you're not watching Whitaker's Doctor Who... the last two eps of this series (there's still a New Year's Day one and then... 2020???) have had some Whovian cheese but really strong acting and really solid and accurate depictions of loss and the inability to deal with it.

And I like this Doctor's "Travel hopefully."

I'm glad I saw Bohemian Rhapsody before it finished its run.

The movie, like the song, was panned by the critics.

The critics were wrong in both cases...

o m g

shouldn't they fix 'iTUNES' (like calling my car a cupholder... it does/has so much more) FIRST!!!???

Get the interface or multiple interfaces to iCloud <-> Media (Photos, videos, songs, podcasts, books, etc) perfect first.

This is like locking in a shitty interface.

JW's link is to a developer's implementation, not an official Apple offering (though an official offering is alluded to/rumored to be lurking about somewhere).

I remain convinced that the only sane response to the awful state of iTunes is to break it into a bunch of smaller pieces. Music, Movies, Podcasts, iOS Sync, etc should all be their own app on every platform.
