#Introduction & #Reintroductions post:

Hi! I'm Lt. Emojo of H.town! :blobsalute:

I survived The Langoliers, Time Warps & got a cane I'm not afraid to use.

I got Admin privs in this instance originally for emojo duty - and unless you're a very naughty netizen that's how I like to, and will, keep myself at.

:blobwitch:​ I'm a daughter of the wire, a witch drawing strength from their pyre! :_stars: :_storm:

:WeAreNameless: I organize #WeAreNameless, a monthly community project on Fedi where Hackers & their friends (apparently half of Fedi) watch old sci-fi cyberpunk movies.

:C_H:​ This is my wishlist in the .com version: amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/26OM

If you're ever feeling like you wanna help me or just cheer me up, this would be a nice place to start. Thank you! :ablobsmile:

:WeAreNameless:​ Dear half of fedi,

We'll be back next month and year, 18 Jan. of 2020, with ExistenZ (1999) at 22:00 UTC.

:WeAreNameless:​ WTF is this anyway?

So, I kiiiiinda curate my followers list.

Not just who I follow, I like to have control over who gets to read my followers-only shitposts. Don't ask, I dunno why. :_catsleep:

I'm considering getting some sort of form to help fast track those who actually read my bio and want in on my bathroom party and are not bots. :bathtub_party:

Something simple, like:

1. Why do you wanna stalk Ella and what are your feelings towards cider?

2. Are you a bot?

3. Did you lie? :_catsad:

Apply here in the comments (unless you're a fash)! :blobcatknife:

#WeAreNameless is a monthly community project on the Fediverse where Hackers and their friends (apparently half of Fedi) watch old sci-fi movies.

:WeAreNameless:​ Wanna get updates on movie sessions? Follow @wearenameless and/or @Mnemonic

:WeAreNameless:​ Have movie suggestions? Here's a nice pad for you to give them: etherpad.qbfreak.net/p/WeAreNa

It is imperative that you find A Field Guide to Roadside Wildflowers At Full Speed.

It's freely available online.

You will understand why.

I wrote a bit more about the scraping of #Mastodon data for research. What happened, what went wrong, and why.

Thanks for all your suggestions so far! 🐾 Loving it!

Send me punk music, plz! 🐾

I love riot grrrl, but any good punk music will do. :ablobcatbongo:

Pretty please? :ablobcatheart:

Make software lighter so that we can buy “weaker” more affordable computers.

I hope that David Cronenberg produces a Phillip K. Dick movie adaptation before he retires.

Thanks to @mnemonic and @ella_kane for hosting another #WeAreNameless session! And thanks to #OTV for their streaming work!

Thanks to all the peeps :HalfTheFedi:​ for joining in the watching.

#OTV thanks for the streaming for the ones who were without copy ! Over 5K streaming! :k_whoa:

A big Thank you to @ella_kane for #WeAreNameless at all!

:WeAreNameless:​ Damn! This was quite the movie. I'm still dizzy, everyone! :ablobcathappypaws:

Thanks to @Mnemonic for suggesting it and hosting today's #WeAreNameless session.

And to #OTV for doing its thing over at otvstudios.net/ and supporting this idea.

Mnemonic will take the reigns over WAN from today on.

This may help understanding the metaphors:

"The film's plot came about after Cronenberg conducted an interview with Salman Rushdie for Shift magazine in 1995. At the time, Rushdie was in hiding due to a Fatwa being put on his life by Muslim extremists due to his controversial book The Satanic Verses. Rushdie's dilemma gave Cronenberg an idea of "a Fatwa against a virtual-reality game designer" "

"How do you put the game on pause? You can put the game on pause, right?" You've never played MMOs, have you? #WeAreNameless
