Do you want to pretend you’re on a starship? By more than just engine sounds?

Then do I have the YouTube channel for you!

I use white noise videos a lot lately to drown out my dad’s snoring, but oh my god this is the best.


YouTube user ender4lyfe has made a number of starship ambience white noise videos, but unlike other starship white noise videos, the sound is not just limited to the sound of the engine or warp core. They have included a multitude of other sound effects to make you really feel like you’re right there on the starship, including opening doors, button bloops, and even conversations among the crew in the background! In the Voyager Warp Core one (which is the one in the thumbnail), you can hear B’Elanna and Tom arguing quietly in the background, and in Ten Forward, you can hear Keiko talking about her day. 

Included in the channel are:

  • TOS USS Enterprise Bridge 
  • TNG USS Enterprise-D Bridge (+ extended version which is an hour long)
  • TNG Ten Forward 
  • TNG USS Enterprise-D Engineering Warp Core
  • TNG Cargo Bay 
  • VOY USS Voyager Bridge 
  • VOY USS Voyager Engineering Warp Core
  • DS9 Infirmary 
  • DS9 Quark’s Bar (Busy Night)
  • DS9 Quark’s Bar (Slow Night)
  • DS9 Station OPS

Go forth and let your imagination soar, fellow officers (or foreign dignitaries, civilians, crew families, etc.)!

Just an idea I’m having

Pursuant to this and this, I’m starting to think there should be a symbol similar to the pink triangle or what-have-you that means some combination of “Janelle Asselin and everyone else who supports her is right” + “This person or establishment is not a safe space for your misogynist bullshit,” a generalized message for putting people on notice in a place where gross dude nerds might otherwise feel free to be gross. It should be a button, a sticker for the window of a comic or game shop or bookstore, a badge for a website, a thing you can put anywhere whose unspoken message is “If you talk some shit in the presence of this symbol, be prepared to catch a beatdown.” I have a button maker, but I’m the first to admit I got no sense of design. What should the symbol be?

I need there to be a gif of someone dropping a mic so hard the entire building collapses, so I can put it here.

Something to Be Thankful For: Secret Pizza
God, Green Arrow, you’re such a douchebag. You’re not only hiding your Hot Pocket from Wonder Woman in an insultingly obvious way, you’re going to come clean as soon as you’re done eating and make her one — explicitly so that you can take a bite out of it. It’s no wonder you got stabbed in the neck with an arrow by your wife on your wedding night.

Secret Pizza sounds like kind of a great idea, tho

I need at least five

I got the itch to re-read The Invisibles this evening, but this time around I want other people to do it with, the kind of people who’ve read it before, but who’ll re-read it a trade at a time and then hop onto an ongoing email thread or maybe a Facebook group to jaw about stuff like

  • Who is John-a-Dreams, really?
  • What is the deal with Sir Miles?
  • Can we talk about the game aspect?
  • Etc

I really want to call this dumb book club CELL 23, but it takes five people to form a proper Invisible cell. I’m just sayin’.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Nobody can tell me with 100% certainty that Neil deGrasse Tyson wasn’t sent back in time to us from one of the possible futures where humankind actually succeeded in becoming the best version of itself.

Hey all! My husband and I bought some art that’s really precious to us, and the post office has lost it. While we work with them to try to find it, there’s a chance that it could have been resold or will show up online. If you see them, please let us know.   

Signal boost!

I don’t know how long timeisaflatcircus can sustain itself, there being only eight episodes’ worth of dialogue to work with, but I’m happy to be along for the ride as long as it lasts.

Set aside an hour to read this; Kim-Mai Cutler basically wrote the definitive article on this entire mess so nobody else has to ever again.
