[As the video comes on, Major's leaning in a bit close, trying to get his comm to stand on its end, but the thing keeps sliding over at varying speeds. He sighs, eventually picking the thing up and holding it out with his arm extended.

He offers a shrug as an explanation.

I'm - never sure if I'm supposed to like, greet people when I start one of these? Well, to be on the safe side ... hey! How are you? I'm doing all right, thanks.

Okay, now that's out of the way, I have two questions for the folks here. .. They are completely unrelated, but of sort of equal importance. [He's walking under some trees that are out-of-shot, but the sunlight pouring through the canopies are sun-dappling Major's face as he moves.]

One: I'm a millenial so I'm pretty good with technology, but - these things sort of elude me a little bit. Is there a way for me to like .. go anon on this thing? Or change my name? Or just use a different one entirely? Or do I have to use my actual name on the network?

Two: Does anyone know if there's a copy of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark lying around? Could be a VHS, for all I care, so long as there's a VCR, too. But I'm not picky; could be anything, just as long as it's watchable!

If you're still listening, thanks! And if you have answers to my questions, I owe you a drink or something!

[Ah yes, nothing to make a 38-year-old man feel ancient than when a fresh face introduces themselves as a millennial. It takes some effort to remind himself that his world is ten years ahead of this one.]


One: If you've ever used a web proxy or VPN, going anonymous is fairly similar to that. Anonymity has its own downsides however, so you may want to look into changing your name instead. Not something I've really looked into to say for a certainty.

But for future reference, using text negates that odd feeling of social obligation.

It definitely pays to have a scientific-brained doctor housemate. I can loan mine out for a fee.

Can't help you with the Raiders of the Lost Ark thing, but is THAT a load of memories. First VHS my dad ever bought.

I'm no tech expert, so I'll let everyone else answer number one, but oh man... Indiana Jones... now that's a movie I haven't thought about in a while.

[ She leans in, resting a hand underneath her chin. ]

Have you checked Bluetube? People upload movies there all the time, though obviously it's pretty dubious. Streaming places tend to be more legal, but I don't know if they offer it.

Okay, no, it's not Indiana Jones, but he sure looks like him.]


Yeah, you can go anonymous or change your name on the network here. I've seen people do it, usually if it's a weird question that'll get folks laughing at them. [Or if it's the Constellation. Or if it's Goldfinch or Jyn.] Why, you got an embarrassing question?

The hell's a VHS? And what's this Raiders of the Lost Ark?

[This is a Goldfinch thing isn't it.]

Yeah, happens all the time, doesn't it. [There's a note to Han's voice that says he absolutely does not believe him at all.]

Why, what did your parents stick you with that's so embarrassing? [There is so much morbid curiosity there.] And, y'know, you wouldn't be the first person who's said something like that, except she said something about a—Harley-son Ford, is that right?

Can't say I know how to go anon on this thing, no. [He's generally too shameless for that anyway. In fact, here's a shameless plug:] But you can totally submit anonymous questions for my relationship and sex advice column, just sayin'.

Also, you have excellent taste in movies, dude. I'll keep an eye out. We could even do a movie marathon or something.

Karmic justice, huh? [Intrigued, Spooky props his chin on one of his hands.] Sounds like there's some kind of story there.

Oh man, I love watching that kind of stuff with people who've never seen it before. This world can be kinda hit-or-miss with popular media, I've noticed, but hopefully we can find a copy somewhere. Stuff like that should totally be required viewing for new-comers!

Would be nice to have the option to change our names around. At the same time, it's handy to have our names available for friends who need to find us.

[ He still can't believe he'd missed Elena's name attached to her messages. Oops. ]

What's so special about that particular Indy film? What about the others? They probably feel left out.
