Would you use/help me test a rudimentary Android Dreamwidth posting app?
Yes please, make this site useable on mobile
I would, but I have an iPhone
No, I'm happy with desktop DW
I would, but my mobile device runs a different OS
I'm not interested until I can also use the app to read my friends' posts
What would you like to see in a DW app? (Go wild, don't be limited to DW features)
Do you use other apps to regularly post your content online, and what are some of the highlights fo those apps?

Then I decided to start again from the beginning. I think what I had forgotten by the end of the show is how many people had died either by Flint's hand, or through his plots, or referred to have died by such, already in Season 1.
Take a wife, father children.
Sea less and less of the sea
Until she becomes like a painting hanging on the wall,
static and irrelevant to your daily existence.
But she'll keep on calling you.
And when she does, you'll step into that painting
and feel the swell beneath your feet.
It'll add come back as if it were yesterday."
"Is that so?"
"I've watched you and yours handle the account since I and mine left it.
Accomplish things that no one I ever sailed with could dream of.
From what I've overheard, if you reach Skeleton Island might mean the end of the governor.
Might keep the account alive a little while longer.
Is that so?"
"That, and more."
"Then I will take you to it.
Hold on to this for as long as you can for all of us who once had it and walked away."
I've read Hakim Bey's T.A.Z. and then Pirate Utopias a very long time ago, but they have really stuck with me. Cherish the good, free, open spaces that you get, for they will not last forever, taken over by capitalism, tyranny, egotism, laziness, pettiness, or a combination thereof. When they are done, don't hang on, break away and make for the next TAZ.
For her part, Clara Paget (Anne Bonny) is literally nobility, her father being a marquess. Which is pretty amusing.
So I finished watching Season 2 while on the plane to Italy... I was quite surprised by the ending, though they had started to telegraph it ahead of time. It was so anti-climatic! I understand that this was a prequel so you need the characters to survive :P I think the main thing is that I didn't buy is Flint going off with some random sailor to hide the treasure... And this business of regularizing Nassau was also bleh. I was pretty tired on the plane so I missed that Featherstone became the governor, just noticed that now. And of course I liked McGraw getting to shed Flint in the end, and find troo lurve again.
Anyway, I still adored the rest of the series, would watch again. And yes, the theme music has gotten to me now. :P
"Okay, what's the name of the museum you were looking at earlier?"
"I don't recall, but if you show me the map I can find it."
*I hand the Google map over to her"
"It's this one, the MACRO"
*I go to its web page*
"Oh, Here it says it's closed till October"
"That's fine, I don't want to go to museums, I just want to hang out today"
I used to go to this irritating white hipster barbershop in the Market but finally a black barbershop opened there and the barbers are all sweet guys rather than annoying and dumb. There even was a guy mixing up hip hop tracks today and he was really good. My beard is still too short though.
I was perusing Wikipedia on Charles Vane, Woodes Rogers, Edward Teach, etc. today... So much of the actual or supposed history woven into the writing of the series, it's fun. (I must say I did not picture a bewigged Charles Vane though!! Zach McGowan has convinced me to grow my hair longer. Since I have a long beard, I'll have to decide whether I go Teach or Vane in the end... Maybe if I can make some slow-burning fuses??)
Now the only thing I'm asking is for in Season 4 is for Flint to get a little more gay, is that possible? Because Toby Stephens with that shaved head... UNF.
So I kept thinking I had seen Toby Stephens before; he reminds me a fair bit of Hugh Grant, but I knew it wasn't simply that. Then this morning as I was ruminating over that in the bathroom, it came back; he was starring as Danton in the play Danton's Death, which F and I had seen at the National Theatre in London. Other than being a handsome fella (the real Danton was ugly as fuck), he delivered a pretty awesome performance. We were sitting high up in the rafters but his performance still reached us.
Max's character is awesome but I find Jessica Parker Kennedy's French accent to be such a porny stereotype as to be distracting.
Zach McGowan's face (Captain Vane) reminders me of a former boss I've had, who was entertaining but rather creepy towards women... and minus the abtastic body of course.
Yet another series to kill my sleep... Damn you!
I was enjoying this season and they just did this lazy writing. Just a little more set up would have been great, for starters.
This writer is more generous than me (full spoiler review), and sees some good in how this was put together. But humpppf.
On the other hand, I'm sure Colbert had his entire writing room (20+ people!!) work on his WHCD speech for him, whereas Wolf probably worked mostly on her own? The benefits of running your own show...
