That’s not what I meant when I asked where the public toilets were!
I’m still enjoying the TV series, on several levels: its own merits, seeing the story i remember brought to life, and thinking about adaptation choices. Like using a modern-day Johanna Constantine instead of John because his CW series is still recent, so it helps differentiate the two series, and adding scenes to establish what she does (and the recurring nightmare) in the episode because you can’t expect the *entire* audience to be familiar with the character like 1989 DC horror readers were.
Attention to detail: in episode 3 of Sandman (released 2022), Mad Hettie says she’s 280 years old.
In episode 3 of the comic book (1989), she says she’s 247 years old.
Hey, sites with restaurant listings? It’s good to know whether the place is open now, but please show the rest of the hours too. I might be planning ahead.

Re-read the first issue of the comic & got about halfway through 6
The second before stopping myself. Watching episode 2, i think they’ve actually improved on it in some ways. Some of the changes are more emotionally impactful.
Plus they have the advantage of knowing where they’re going this time through.
The Corinthian has a line I won’t spoil here that foreshadows Dream’s overall arc for the full 75 issues.
Celebrity car crash!
What is Splooting and why are NYC squirrels doing it?
(TL;DR: spreading out flat on the ground to cool off.)
Here’s another good one.
Some of them came out looking like crappy vacation snapshots, though.
#Gemini question: about a year ago I settled on LaGrange and Amfora as my main Gemini clients after trying out a bunch of what was around at the time. And then I kind of stopped paying attention.
Now I’m curious: have any particularly interesting client applications come out of Geminispace since then?
COVID, death (last year, but really f’d up)
Interesting read on building “microforests” – if you don’t have enough room for actual rewilding, plant a small plot of multilevel native plants and trees in a park, school yard, or even your own back yard – wherever you can fit, say, an oak, some shorter trees, some bushes and ground cover to create a thicket that will support small birds, insects and other animals, and just let it grow.
Makes me wish I actually had a back yard.

Ah yes, my favorite audio track: “Not Provided” by (Unknown).
Awfully quiet, though.

Oh jeez, the kid is starting to ask about driving
