Book is the exception. I'm going to continue to book. I need to finish #TheExpanse to give my brain a rest. I've been having dreams about how the book's going to continue and they feel spoilery.
So, haven't posted here in awhile. Mostly been reading through and moving on.
To the #Woodworking people I have come to like seeing and sharing work with, I finished the glue up of a paper towel holder base and then Other Things intruded and I haven't been able to straighten the edges and flatten top and bottom.
Other things was emptying our living room that hadn't been decluttered in awhile so there was a place for my wife's office furniture from her office now that it's official she will be working from home.
Also, started a re-watch of #TheExpanse the other day. Miller headed to Eros. Rocinante just Donkey Ballsed off some MCRN people.
Also working on a #DnD5e campaign.
Also also also, been lazy at times.
A tiny throwaway scene in THE EXPANSE has lodged in my mind because I think it’s anything but that.
A strong female character who is written with both masculine and feminine coding, is outside in the woods, urinating on the ground, back turned to her male counterpart doing the same.
The scene starts focusing on her stream of urine. “WHAT?!” your mind might say unbidden, perhaps a little shocked. “Why am I shocked?” you might ask. Then you might remember laughing when you learned that Amy Schumer’s husband — an outdoorsy type — hauls it out and pees on nature all the time. You might also recall all the cute, cherubic art of boys peeing an arcing stream while smiling at the viewer.
Anyway, this tiny scene feels like it’s meant to normalize women as natural beings. Plus the character was a total mom wolf and female wolves mark territory too.
Even peeing can be representation? I’m obviously out of my lane; this is the impact it had on me, though.
Ein paar Betrachtungen zu #TheExpanse Season 1, ich hatte da ja einen schweren Start mit drei Anläufen. "Es wird besser" fand ich bei 6 Staffeln immer etwas - beunruhigend. Ich würde das daher als Service mal konkretisieren: wen S01E04 nicht abholt, der braucht wohl nicht weiterschauen. Das ist wirklich ein Quantensprung, und hier gehe ich auch mit IMDB nicht mit - das ist eine 10/10 Folge, die macht so vieles richtig und interessant und originell.
🎥 Aufgepasst, das ist eine rhetorische Frage: Ich weiss, ich bin uncool spät dran mit der rund 8 Jahre alten US-Serie. Aber kann bitte jemand ausführen, was an #TheExpanse so besonders sein soll? Die jugendlichen Held:innen? Die lässigen Sprüche? Dümmliche Action? Schleppende Handlung? Pseudowissenschaftlichkeit? Aus meiner Sicht: Das ist wohl doch nur #SciFi vom Banalsten.
I'll be #GoingLive soon (10') with a my first playthrough of The Expanse: A telltale series, episode 2

I truly had a blast playing The Expanse: a telltale series yesterday.
Camina Drummer is one hell of a tough cookie and I loved playing as her for the night.
What threw me off balance was the fact that I rushed the first episode in just 1 hour and half-ish. I'll keep this in account for Thursday's live stream and try to make episode 2 last for the entire night

Finde es gerade etwas sehr schade dass #TheExpanse nicht komplett als TV Serie umgesetzt wurde. Mitten in Buch 8 ist das gerade wieder extrem gut und spannend.
Mein Vorschlag: drei Staffeln als Abschluss der Bücher, animiert. Werden viele Fans zwar nicht haben wollen, weil "Animation ja für Kinder" ist. Aber in richtig gut gemacht? Wie Arcane zum Beispiel?? Und die Kosten dafür wären überschaubar. Oder zumindest überschaubarer...
Who is it?
*Door slams open*
I'm Alex and the #live #streaming schedule is here!!
- Monday 9:30 PM CET (UTC+1) - #TheExpanse - a telltale series
- Thursday 9:30 PM CET (UTC+1) - #TheExpanse (might vary, might be #EuroTruckSimulator2 )
Mkay - also s01e04 von #theExpanse legt dann aber tüchtig los, ich liebe alles daran. Und Kopfhörer helfen. So darf das weitergehen.
Reading order for #TheExpanse books
@scattershot @Nick_Stevens_graphics regarding #TheExpanse, the novels are different enough that you’d still enjoy reading them even if you’re very familiar with the TV show. But they’re similar enough that you could dive right into the last three books if you must. Book 7 is pretty good and books 8 & 9 are perhaps the best of the series.
The main difference is that the Drummer you’ll meet in the book hasn’t done nearly as much cool stuff as in the TV show.
There are lots of great things that didn't make this list, plus the order is fluid:
Plus an honorable mention, because it's a movie not TV. 😉
I underestimated just how big the Eaglemoss "Rocinante" miniature would be. #TheExpanse
I'm going to follow @AndorianSoup's lead.
Here is my all-time ranking of #SciFi TV shows:
1. #StarTrek (franchise)
3. #BattlestarGalactica (reboot)
4. #StarWars (franchise)
9. #VTheFinalBattle (miniseries)
10. #Westworld (1st 2 seasons)
This is hilarious. One by one I’m racking up a list of other-movie plot devices that I’m seeing copied on #TheExpanse.
Ancient civilization, bio attacks - Prometheus/Alien Covenant
Ancient being that “defends”, mega underground city - Forbidden Planet, Krell
The way Klaes Ashford speaks - Bruce Lee in any given film
The way other beltalowdas speak - Cool Runnings or Jar Jar Binks
Chick tumbles into space and has to be saved - Event Horizon (“Stay with me Baby Bear!”)
Dude sees someone in his head talking to him and giving him advice - Dexter
I’m sure there’ll be more before the series ends 😂
Alle Leute, die ich a) schätze und b) SciFi mögen sagen: #theExpanse ist das Ding. Ich komme da überhaupt nicht rein. 3 Folgen gesehen: Ich kann mir die Leute nicht merken, nicht die Orte, die Raumschiffnahmen, die (derzeit) getrennten Handlungsstränge.
Wird das bald besser, oder schaut man das eher auf Deutsch? Ich habe auf Wikipedia die Handlung nachgelesen und hatte wirklich die Hälfte nicht verstanden.
Mit Komplexität habe ich sonst kein Problem und kann immer noch GoT runterbeten.
@dhrystone alright so i'm really happy to see someone in #theExpanse esp in my `pkm` pane no less. you're also really far through the series i think i know where you are and the hard decisions being made.
i think that show is great. i binged the whole thing through season three then started reading the books. same thing i did with game of thrones but _The Expanse_ are good books and i plowed right through them.
my ex sister in law is a fan, i send her memes and things from etsy. brb.
Still watching #TheExpanse. Cable had to be minimum 1 km between the spaceships. They can only fabricate 800m of cable. Zero spoilers, but - what do we all think will happen? Wild, wild guess. (I paused it to run some errands so I don’t actually know yet)
Dear plot writers of every single TV show, #TheExpanse for example - PLEASE don’t send characters on a mini mission in a space suit with low oxygen level and then be so damn PREDICTABLE as to have them run out of air due to some random unforeseen situation. I mean for real. It’s worse than female characters throwing up in private and then 😲SURPRISE😲 we learn they’re pregnant..
Soon as we see someone getting into a space suit with low oxygen my wife and I are immediately “she’s gonna run out of air”
Soon as a woman falls to their knees in front of the shitter and starts puking, we’re similarly “she’s pregnant”
Let’s get creative y’all. (claps hands sharply)
Es muss für mich nicht #StarTrek sein: #TheOrville finde ich lustig (bin aber auch erst in Staffel 2), für vier Staffeln #Firefly würde ich mich vermutlich von #StarTrekDiscovery trennen können.
Lohnt es sich, da noch ein paar Folgen zu durchzustehen?
Geez, could they dial Avasarala’s potty mouth back just a little please? #TheExpanse
Wait, did I miss the memo where they decided to change the name of the Pinus Contorta back to “Rocinante”? 🤔 #TheExpanse
Ok. Season 3 of #TheExpanse. Why exactly is David Strathairn’s character talking with a Bruce Lee accent?
Alright, it’s the classic “I’m on a new site, for the love of fuck, someone who likes the things I like, FOLLOW ME so we can connect!”

This is the first book in a #trilogy about a group of humans that are kidnapped by aliens and taken back to the alien planet as tools of their empire.
Ahhh I think I fell off #theexpanse when they killed off a character I thought was super cool in order to develop a character I thought has the charisma of a block of moldy cheese
@grumpygamer I'm a huge introvert, and at first I was right with you on the "this ain't for me" train. But my group has been meeting for 10+ years now, so I stuck with it.
I have since done a 180 on #VTT. I love how a well-designed game takes care of all the bookkeeping and math so players can focus on actually PLAYING the game. In fact, I love it so much that I built my own implementation for #TheExpanse on Roll20.
In-person is still better, no question. But VTT can be great, too.
Started reading The Expanse novels before they were partly turned into the TV series, then held off finishing them until I'd picked up the entire series in paperback. A few months ago I started the big old re-read and completion, and that's come to its conclusion this morning. So, so good. Incredible scale, fantastic politics, great characters, believable science, unbelievable science, humour, staggering action; it's got the lot.
I don’t know who said this before but Chrisjen Avasarala’s saris on the show ARE super gorgeous 😍 #TheExpanse
... don't like it done poorly. I always point people to the scifi series, #TheExpanse as a beautiful example of diversity on TV. I love Aveserala and the Texan Martian Indian pilot. What I' m annoyed with is how these activists (?) assume so many things about me when I say that. And yes, it's purely my fault because I happened to say I dislike Bridgerton. I mean, guys, grow up and touch grass omg. Anyway, one poster insisted I "explain myself" and wouldn't stop badgering me.
One of the fantastic things about #TheExpanse is how zero G is depicted in battle. I know many others have said the same, but it needs repeating.
I wish I felt like I could watch #Foundation.
I don’t want my head cannon to change though. Anyone else feel like that with adaptations?
For instance I am going through and #reading the last of #theExpanse #books and I now read the characters in the voices of the actors from the show instead of my original interpretation of the characters.
It’s not bad but I’m not having the same engrossing experience I did when I read the first books years before the show came out.
In season 1 episode 3 of #TheExpanse, someone in the riot yells "Moon stole our water!" and I can't stop laughing at our moon not having a name even in this show.
finished #TheExpanse yesterday! all six seasons in about 10 days.
i really enjoyed it, and i think it’s going to leave a lasting impression on my #SciFi preferences in the future. if/when i finish reading #ChildrenOfDune, maybe i’ll take a break from the #Dune franchise and try out the expanse books.
oh, and i think the #rocinante is high on my list of favorite spaceships now.
You know, I just remembered what Ahsoka's end credits sequence reminded me of: the opening sequence to #TheExpanse. Same kind of epic space exploration vibe.
Inaros: "We will take what is ours by right, yes, but more than that, we will lead the Belt to a new, better form, a more human form. Citizens of the Belt, beratnas, rise up now in joy and glorious resolve. This day is ours. Tomorrow is ours. The future of humanity is ours. Today and forevermore...we are free"
@michaelgemar @nyrath @tkinias @mishamouse @pzriddle regarding the biological implications of humans living at low G, I was pretty convinced by this YouTube video by a doctor explaining that Belters would probably be *shorter* than Inners because the force of gravity is needed to stimulate bone growth. But I can’t blame the authors of #TheExpanse for coming to the conclusion that they’d be taller. https://youtu.be/lIRdWi3tKA8
