That’s a wrap, folks: the last Speedy Arrowcast of the season is here. We try not to weep too much.“Life is short” I typed, but then autocorrect decided to get real., I'll be at #Balticon this weekend. If you see me, say hi! Will probably have some @theincomparable stickers with me!Cleared airport security in about 90 seconds. Cannot recommend TSA Pre highly enough. @lexfri Solid. @lexfri Try this novel approach: keep drinking hot tea. @AsterRoc @tinyasterisms @heymermaid That was pretty common in a lot of places in Europe, I think. @marcintosh @skoontastic Synergy. @film_girl Christina! Noooooo. (Although, man, I can think of about six million reasons I'm more concerned about kids playing GTA. :/)Overheard on bus full of school kids: "You don't know how to drive!" "I do too! I played GTA to learn how to drive!" 😱 @tinyasterisms When I lived in a dorm in the UK you just pulled a shower curtain around one corner of the room. @ohthattom Aw, nuts. I thought @jsnell fixed that.
@kacealexander I'm picking up what you're putting down. @GlennF @heymermaid Six wrongs don't make a right but they do make some horrifying reminders of the downfall of our society. @kacealexander Ha. I too am a webdev vet. For god's sake let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of browsers. @PVBrett @MykeCole The Doctor Doom statues are a dead giveaway. @kacealexander This was a handy tool for me: @kacealexander Just set up SSL on my new website and ran into that warning. Check links to images on your site are also using https. @PBones I got it. Just wanted to let you know. @lschmeiser I swear, there are a couple shots of Tobolowsky’s back where it looks like he’s losing it. @jonseff @heatherkelly You should see the stacks of cash I have from selling out. Man.
Retweeted by Dan Moren @caseyliss @jsnell I know, I wish I could take credit for it. @ChuckWendig Still a chance that the FedEx guy tackles the UPS guy. He’d never see it coming. @scalzi Hey, @rakdaddy! You made it! @will_wagner I left this open in my browser overnight, and I think it ate all my memory. 😱 @JasonT @adrishaw If it had spaceships IN HyperCard, that is like my bread and butter. @JasonT @adrishaw Not ringing any bells here, sorry. :(Pretty sure the guy behind the Street Sharks thing is also responsible for the Berenstain Bears misapprehension.Everything you think know about the ‘90s cartoon Street Sharks is probably wrong. @JasonT This is great. “I’m living in an ontological nightmare of my own making. It’s jawsome!”Why's all I see in stores "baby spinach". I don't want this immature spinach. I want wizened old spinach, spinach that has seen some shit.
Retweeted by Dan MorenA number of Asian-American actors have become fierce critics of Hollywood's "whitewashing"
Retweeted by Dan MorenNot sure how I feel about this twist where it turned out Peter Thiel was funding Captain America the whole time. @tinyasterisms @heymermaid Yeah, death threats are way beyond the pale. And sorta ironic when your stated intentions are “anti-fascist.” 🙄 @joesteel Congrats, buddy. @tinyasterisms I think we could all stand to do that more. But Twitter definitely feeds the OMG MUST POST RIGHT NOW troll in all of us.Controversial comics tweet: I really liked @nickspencer’s Superior Foes of Spider-Man. It’s pretty hilarious.Geek culture is the one that's turned into a supervillian, not Captain America. When did we become the bullies?

@MykeCole You and what army? (No, seriously: Roman? Carthaginian? Macedonian?) @ismh @lexfri Only the naughty ones. @Spacekatgal @will_wagner @RealFPJr I think @SarahMGellar beat us to it. Lucky woman! @ismh @lexfri YOU’RE ON THE LIST, FRIEDMAN. @Spacekatgal @will_wagner @Genevieve @tinyasterisms @thejessbeast I’m just hoping this means I was married to @RealFPJr.I do not own a turntable, and yet, I kind of still want The Force Awakens vinyl that has fricking holograms on it. @kacealexander But we’ve gone for the dumb shocking (and possibly offensive) story rather than getting into a complex and uncomfortable one. @kacealexander This is one thing that really bugs me: there is a way more interesting story to be told here about what “America” means today @kacealexander …I thought that was one of the most fascinating, awesome points I’ve come across in this whole thing! @kacealexander I will also say that somebody made the comparison of Cap to a golem today (created by a Jewish scientist as a defender) and… @kacealexander I guess at the moment, I’m still on the “stupid” rather than “offensive” side of the fence. Not that that couldn’t change. @kacealexander In this case a plotline also done by those very creators at one point. @kacealexander Yeah, I mean I think this particular “twist” is DUMB, but I also don’t want to say you’re not allowed to write dumb things. 😉 @AsterRoc And maybe that it’s not that clear cut is the point. :) @kacealexander Totally true. Maybe I’m just jaded about this particular circumstance because it’s par for the ridiculous course.This and the rest of Sam’s thread kind of capture my feelings. (Please return my feelings, Sam!) us a writing prompt for this month’s Six Colors Magazine. What do you want to hear about?
Retweeted by Dan Moren @caseyliss Set up the Skype call, ask a provocative question, and then just quietly hang up. @caseyliss I just find it hilarious, because I think about what it would be like to actually invite them on the show. @dmoren so you’re telling me there’s a chance
Retweeted by Dan Moren @moiseschiu @jsnell @DentedMeat @GlennF Batman and Superman fight. Because.FYI: PR people pitching clients to be on my podcast pans out about 0.00000% of the time.Hire @HollyGoDarkly, who is awesome. (And not just because we’re #twinsies.) needs to release all these lost Grosse Pointe Blank scenes., The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl remains an utter delight, with many fights solved through *compassion and conversation.*
Retweeted by Dan MorenGood alternate title for us.
Retweeted by Dan Moren @AsterRoc @sinboy All they’re asking him is whether he’d be interested in directing another movie. @AsterRoc I don’t think he is… @FrankRamblings @IILPII @reneritchie @Gartenberg Yeah, I *used* to have an Exchange account there, but not in a while… @IILPII @reneritchie @Gartenberg I ran into this. Not sure what the hell it is, but it just went away eventually. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯I’ve crashed @clockwisepod this week! Hanging out with @jsnell @dmoren and @Spacekatgal!
Retweeted by Dan MorenWhatever, Captain America writer. YOU GOT THERE SECOND. Squirrel Girl has been on this plot for a while.
Retweeted by Dan Moren @marcoarment One mountain left to climb: get them to use that picture of you in the Computers hat in a story.
@helenewecker Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! @Georgia_Dow @HollyGoDarkly Well, it’s no surprise that Erika and I are #twinsies. @heymermaid @ismh Well, actually, it’s pronounced “Blueberreye.”Today: spent a hell of a lot of time beating up WordPress to make it do what I wanted. Then went back and redid it all correctly. @angelheartscake I was so excited about this but I let it sit too long and all the cheap seats are sold out. :/Dear god, what fucking mailing list did I end up on? @Jim_Lipsey Yep, check out for more. @real_brentac I’m with you there. @real_brentac Wouldn’t hold my breath on DC being a part of this. They’ll want to roll their own, I bet. @tofias @mrgan @GlennF Maybe? If they keep adding new content regularly, which they need to, then it should get better.I gave Comixology Unlimited a quick whirl. Verdict: intriguing, but bare bones right now. @mrgan @tofias @GlennF Yeah, it’s clearly an enticer right now. But at $6 a month, you only have to read a couple issues to get $$ worth. @GlennF It’s a little bit of a mess right now. @CanConSF @samroebuck Sam, you put the ‘u’ in ‘honoured.’Comixology Unlimited? Huh! I’m interested. @heymermaid Truly, I shall never recover. @jordanmerrick But…but…if I just give him my bank account info..@rmlewisuk Now you’re making me picture a LinkedIn romcom: “YES! YES, I WILL CONNECT WITH YOU! TODAY AND FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES.”Holy shit, I just got something in my email so incredibly exciting that I am tearing up in the middle of the coffee shop. @lo_fye @michaelwuertz I’m lacking in a concrete reason why this would be a good thing. @mikemearls I have played of the Skee Ball at Salisbury Beach. Truly, it is not for the faint of heart. @dmoren Lenovo went back to keys in the next version of the X1. Quality is not the issue. Having to look to find your f-key is. Bad idea.

My girlfriend’s Lenovo laptop has a touchbar instead of F-keys. It’s one of the most annoying “features” ever. @rakdaddy I watched most of it, but missed the last season or two when I was starting college. Rewatched the whole thing 7 or 8 years ago. @BodyofBreen Yeah, there’s a lot of crossover… @BodyofBreen Ha. I spotted her immediately as well, but it took my girlfriend a while. And we’ve watched that entire show!
