Brand new Wolmania.
Links and dumb comments and
Music, hooray.

Sure, a bird photograph,
Ornithotypically -
But stick around for the
Word of the day.

Yeah I don't think it's supposed to look like that.

Here's an entertainingly-written bummer of a story by Chris Person at Aftermath about how people keep using AI and screwing up 4K remasters of (not that old) movies. The news peg is recent rereleases of several James Cameron movies - True Lies, Aliens, The Abyss, and Titanic - each of which has been run through some infernal process that leaves all the actors coming out looking like they're wearing rubber masks. Apparently it's all Peter Jackson's fault. Let! Old! Movies! Look! Old!
