an unwoke netflix series that got past woke netflix

away is a series dealing with mars [my blog] and the saint elon’s of this world with and without the bastard children [my blog].

Its premise is that humans and technology can’t work and the diverse crew of a old russian,  lesbian chinese, indian, russian and black english commanded by a american female is a disaster ready to happen.

Yep you guessed right and it does – americans daughter is you average fucked up kid [my blog] and the lesbian chinese person is found out and stirs that pot.

The humour moment for me was when the black man who is jewish english but african spoke about the exodus from Egypt from those oppressive arabs.  Golly!  islam hates them.

That had me in stitches quite how that got past netflix’s woke brigade is a marvel to behold.

Apart from the american being always on the phone to move on to the next crisis it kind of raised a few questions.

Bonus casting goes to the downs actor who replaces the drug taking adult as a bad human on earth in one of those other mars-ish things and the women cannot be science things unless there lesbians.

I was wondering how this series got past the intersectionals at netflix.    Perhaps they only saw the first episode and thought it looked diverse.

It has an anti science bias and for what it is worth entertaining for being woke and so unwoke.

Perhaps a bit overlong but hey maybe your find it humourous as i did.

dealing with retards the wrong way

Bananas in the Falklands is not a provider of telecommunications stuff but since i equip the zoo with phones and get pretty good deals [my blog] i sometimes get asked by those in the know.

It normally goes bad and they do what they normally would do.  Why do i bother?

This goes back some months so when the mobile phone goes boldly where no mobile phone has gone before i am asked to ‘help’.

So i dump three links into an email  from amazon, and my mistake is to mention line number transference and better deals from x company who are by no means the cheapist this information is not hard to find.

Amazon links are deemed voodoo by the idiots but instead go to x location in person where a phone costing double is once more rented – locked rather then bought outright.

Because of those links there email provider decided to send the email into there spam folder – i get the spam reason for the links as it could be deemed that but hey but its not like i have much control over that – they asked they got it but in the ‘bad’ folder.

I know why the phone cost more as the markup from x is more so amazon margins and do it yourself do not apply but quite how an android setup wizard is hard is something you can muse over.

I guess the new non suggested phone might be a Huawei or a brand that failed on them before that they obtained but hey when android stops working or the phone dies and its back to square one and i will not help them.

Oh well monkey sees and does but monkey ignored.

I have to admire that salemanship/selling still trumps advice which if I was thinking of buying such a thing now [when i write this] i would use my suggestion.

A fool and his money  … I guess they got what they wanted and will not be asking me again.


i hate this bind command for being an absolute know it all and  arsewipe when it comes to its conf file rights a little like opendkim.

OK yes it has its uses but the number of piss off till next month cron jobs i  lose through this is irritating.

Oh well.

the missing ‘professional’ job no one remembers

Bananas was switching to netflix on a television some months ago when a tv show about faking a job stuff was on where say somebody who makes clothes in a factory becomes a fashion designer. 

Aka Pygmalion [my  blog].

Instead of the example the episode dealt with professional photographers working with print magazines if you had not guessed the age or time which had past – its been a while.

It had aged badly and yes those professionals do exist still i am sure there is not the demand for it there once was.

In the era of photographs in things rather than a camera as an item its interesting that these people are not counted in the progress war, where say steel making and industrial stuff are deemed victims of progress through mechanisation.  It is kind of weird that a whole career of photographers can go bye bye but coal miners are deemed victims of progress even with saint greta thurnburg now nearing death as an angry iceberg or something attacks her.

warp factor one ready

So if you do not believe me when did you last hire a professional photographer.  How many people see photography as a a career? there was a film recent-ish where an magazine person chased a lost film negative around the world before losing there job which i know  of but have never seen.

The other question is when did you last buy a print magazine.

Some still exist but i hope i made you think.

Say Cheese.

defective by design – blueray

It has been a while since i ranted about drm and I read recently that all internet connected samsung blueray players have been bricked in a update.

digital restrictions wins again.   Oh and you  better go buy a new bluray player as apparently they wont fix there mistake.

I am glad to say the monkey house never ‘invested’ in that kind of ewaste.

master sniffles

British version of high school grange hill.

I was collecting the daily rwandian one day recently and a school child with adult in tow who was also consuming cleaning products for some reason at some ungodly hour one morning is the topic of the day.

The child was clearly under the weather eg sick and while nothing was said by those in the establishment about the sniffles it was noticed by all.

seems appropriate

Anyhow it seems all of us are bit sensitive to those with signs of the lurgy.

Trust is not what it once was.   The threat of fud and its those damm kids fault is some governments and the main stream media love to promote and push.

Perhaps the Vulgarians had it right from that musical film with the car in*.  Any how i collected the newspaper from our land of exile and returned to the zoo.

*collect your prize from the zoo if you get the right film.

star trek by the fans version better than the cbs version

I do not like modern cbs star trek as defined as jj abrams controlled shite [kelvin] version or 25% extra awful on film and streaming.

One evening i saw on youtube a fan made star trek film featuring the known of captain april who has no stories and is after archer and pre pike and kirk if you have ever read the the tng technical manual as a placeholder in history by the tng staff.  

It had some technical issues but it actually had a story and there was a chemistry rather than the travesty of std or abrams remaking the wrath of kahn among the crimes of unoriginality you can level at the talent making this effluent .

I sat through it and wondered how badly it shows up cbs a corporation who cant make star trek to save its life.

I watched the credits and it was definety not a cbs thing but a fan enterprise and even Seth MacFarlane [my blog] got a shout out  as it respects what star trek is about not that it a mary sue poc thing where no effort is made and star trek is a thing  to bolt on to a mary sue saves the world despite trek never having a diverse cast [my blog]  before the sjw’s got to it.

Star Trek is not easy to make tv and yes there are some poor quality episodes but with so much of it having a chemistry and story means i would take the fan made trek over the crap that neither netflix or amazon would rather not buy.

Do i miss ‘official’ star trek no.

netflix reviewers and subtitles

rilakkuma and kaoru

I am constantly surprised when those things [my blog] only mention western [non english] foreign  languages not south american or asian stuff. 

Take these ignored things of which i like and bore you with.

3% [series 2 3 & 4]

Covered here [series 1] came to an end and nobody above ever mentioned it.  Season 4 tied up the ends abruptly but its depiction of hell and heaven is interesting.

Omniscient [my blog] is the next of interest thing.

5/5 bananas.

Its odd that these subtitled works do not get professional reviewer interest but some crap back to the future film will be notable by them.   Most of the time western subtitles equals porn and so worthy of outrage by ‘reviewers’

Mind you being a professional reviewer is dumb career.  It is also true that while sjw’s do work in film to point out they are pro abuse and other stuff [*my blog] is important i am looking forward for desmond ‘s issue to be made into a film [my blog].  However i kind of doubt that and if it does then it somehow be a train wreck for the left.

I do not like the outrage on either left [for anime] or right for cuties as it shows up both for censorship and while you may think brazilian culture is rubbish you do not have to watch it and watch some censored hollywood film called back to the future** according to these professional reviewers who dont do subtitles unless lurid in nature.

*if beauty contests where once sexist then clearly they can not be now.  ** somebody at netflix did not like a playboy centerfold image in one of those.

and behold the quietway was gone

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, Charlton Heston, 1956

Going back to this and the two wheels good, one wheel awesome scheme [my blog] is gone reports Professor. Oh my.

I guess Moses came along the quiet-way and the sea then swallowed the scheme that is humour if your do not get it.

As to why professor is as much in the dark as we are i guess you find out in thirty years.

Perhaps the downing street cat was an egyptian pharaoh oppressor and those civil servants who decided to make these schemes had slaves.

It probably did not happen like that but one can imagine outrageously silly reasons as why it did.  Add your silly reason below if you want to.

I feel sorry for the unicyclist professor saw but your have to read the links for the story on that.


Permanent Record,Edward Snowden

isbn: 9781529035850 and looks a dead ringer for Louis Theroux who is some posh bloke on tv.

In his own words  Snowden comes across as intelligent and as an dell employee you have to wonder if dell pc’s are nsa enabled perhaps one should not be purchasing any dell hardware.  His career is varied with roles as a government employee and contractor

This book is light on the details  but the ideals come through and as the more you collect the bigger the danger to civil society.

In his own words opposed to journalists who rather wished snowden never existed this is a more principled response that matters.

A happy Constitution day to americans.

5/5 bananas
