It’s a difficult watch but so good. In the first episode I was literally on the edge of my seat whispering “go home, now, go home!” Did you tell your partner afterwards that it’s autobiographical, based on the assault Coel suffered during the production of Chewing Gum? I’m in awe of her, that she was able to create Read more

I’ve read so many reviews and would love to see it, as I love Michaela Coel. But I don’t have HBO Max, so I’ll figure out if I can track down some bootleg version. As well as Insecure Season 4.

My insomnia has been atrocious lately and I’ve stumbled upon this traditional Maori woodcarver twitch stream and listening to it in the middle of the night/early morning has become SO SOOTHING to me. Music is so (unfortunately) conscious for me and I just want to let my mind wander and I cannot do that with music and Read more

Summer has hit like a wrecking ball, and if I hear one person say climate change isn’t real I will pull a Hank Hill and kick their ass. Read more

Been listening to Light of the Seven and Night King from the GoT soundtrack a lot lately. I started a rewatch during quarantine but have been very hesitant to start the S7&8 lol.

I keep going back to this album, and this track is appropriately named for this post.

When driving around mountains and lakes last weekend in Ticino Mr Krimi played his Italy driving playlist, of course including the original Azzurro - mildly complaining how it can be sort of cloyingly sweet. I then introduced him to the cover by Die Toten Hosen

Anya’s speech about not understanding death and grief is so incredible and always makes me tear up.

The Body, an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I watched it at least ten years ago & it still makes me cry. It’s brutal. Read more

I have never wanted children. Not in that active way I see others wanting children. It didn’t help that when my friends started having children two of my closest friends ended up going it alone within the first year due to the fact that there partners were terrible, and it just looked like such a hard slog. I was very Read more

I think for anyone, the choices of whether or not to become a parent are always going to be complicated and very personal. When my now wife decided to hormonally and socially transition, I made it very clear that I want to have a child at some point and that it was a deal breaker. She was on the fence about it Read more

Not a mom, though I did and continue to help raise my sister. I too worry about bringing a child into a very uncertain world. Beau’s brother has three beautiful, amazing kiddos, and I obviously don’t say this but I worry about their futures. Read more

When I was a teenager, I had no plans to have kids. None. I was going to be single, and travel the world, and have a lover in every country, and learn a dozen languages, and read everything, and study abroad, and... then I was 17 and nearly 5 months pregnant. So. Things changed rather abruptly. Read more

Yeah, it definitely isn't an easy path. But, I'm one of those people that does actually want kids and it seems like it is the best way for me to do that. Either that, or just date more guys with kids...which also comes with its own complications.

I can get the love thing, tbh, since the love/connection for your child isnt something you can really replicate. BUT..Ive also seen enough shitty parents and fucked up adults to know that profound sense of love really isnt enough. Like, I think my parents think they love me but I dont have contact with them for a Read more
