Watching My Neighbor Totoro & my kid is saying that I’m like Mama Kusakabe because we both have dark hair and fair skin. I said, “And I, too, am voiced by Lea Salonga,” and he said, “No, you’re not, you’re voiced by your voice box.” ๐Ÿฟ

We are now at the “Watch Studio Ghibli instead of PBS Kids” stage of the pandemic. ๐Ÿฟ

What I’m learning from the MCU (caught up on WandaVision & currently watching Agents of SHIELD 3x15) is that everyone with a PhD in the natural sciences is good at hacking and creating algorithms. Scientists, is this true? ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿฟ

๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ I just finished watching REBECCA on Netflix and it’s… fine. But it’s not gothic. Glen Weldon’s review sums it up pretty well.

I’ve been pulled deep into Dark Academia’s orbit, because it is the aesthetic I’ve been unknowingly building my whole life, and because of this I watched DEAD POETS SOCIETY for the โ€ฆ

๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ Just finished watching DEAD POETS SOCIETY for the first time in years and now I’m having an existential crisis because I don’t want my eulogy or epitaph to be “She was a fine student.” How’s your Sunday going?

๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ I am watching BLACK PANTHER for the first time. The fact that every single Wakandan is awesome is not a surprise, but it is a delight. I was like, “Okoye is the best! Wait, no, Shuri is the best!” but there need be no best, they’re all wonderful.

๐Ÿฟ This is the best thread I’ve read in forever, and it’s so heartening to see somebody come fresh to The Princess Bride and love it as much as I’ve loved it for more than 30 years.

๐Ÿ”–๐Ÿฟ Read From Princess to General: How Many Times Can Leia Save the Galaxy? (The New York Times).

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.

We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah โ€˜TJโ€™ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
