- Referenced: The clips Dirk sent to Bob "I'm Gonna Kill Somebody" Koski to illustrate the difference in cinematography between CW's DC comics shows and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:
Both are nighttime fight scenes, but the S.H.I.E.L.D. one has all-white lighting on everything, backgrounds, people, etc. Arrow has contrasting colors providing depth. White and blueish edge lighting on actors; amber work lamps. Pause at 0:36 and note background building lighting - tower is reddish, hangers are greenish. The lighting in the hanger is dark with pools of light - not realistic, but very dramatic.
S.H.I.E.L.D. just throws up white light on everything making it very monochrome. Arrow is on CW and lacks the Disney $$$, but makes it look so much richer in lighting and grading.

- The stupid safety pin crap that prompted this personal FaceSpace comment from Dirk:
OLD BUSTED: Safety pins mean punk rock.
NEW HOTNESS: Safety pins mean you're a self-loathing white heterosexual liberal snowflake who wants to preen your wokeness by letting the world know you hate Trump and support Muslims and gay people and women who are all supposedly targeted by the Cheeto Jesus death squads. Or something. (How this works when a ISIS-sworn radical Muslim slaughters 50 people in a gay disco is unclear.)
IN REALITY: Safety pins mean punk rock, you c*nts!
Liberalism ruins everything down to a means to pin your clothes up. Johnny Rotten used them because he was poor. Libtards are using them because they're wealthy and safe and don't have any real problems despite their pants-soiling fear. Babies.
