So I am pretty pro-advisory/trigger warnings. They come a lot in my workplace (non-profit arts presenter) and I’m always the one fussing over their phrasing. Last year there particularly bad draft come down to me that ended up with me explaining to my coworkers that we warn people about explicit sexual material. We do…
Most of mine are pedestrian rage.
Personally I’m convinced mine was Pythagoreanism - I also like music and hate beans - but I was born 2500 years too late.
The argument I’ve heard from psychologists goes more like “everyone is likely to be vulnerable at times in their lives.” It’s not that there is the one cult out there that is right for you. It’s that we all tend to have moments where we are lost, lonely and susceptible. Then it’s the cocktail of brand/messaging/trend.…
And that is exactly why it drives me nuts, because disrespecting your audiences’ time like this totally incentives them to bolt right out of there as fast as they can — which I don’t like either and I don’t wanna do. But people don’t trust you if you habitually hold them there for 10 mins while each named character …
They don’t, but I actually think this is part of how audiences are dealing with the languishing, extended curtain calls that have become the norm. We’re trying to bargain our way out: Look we’re standing okay. We’re doing the thing. Can we go now?
My life is not richer for knowing what “Mukbangs” are now. I agree.
Curtain calls after shows have become ego driven nonsense and often counter-productive and just frequently screw with the actual artistic achievement of the piece.
That’s what I said! Popsicles have sticks!
Freezies. Blue all the way.
This is a really embarrassing mistake, but I got to tell you that I have never experienced such pure joy as I just felt when I googled John de Lancie, and found out I was wrong; He’s not dead.
We’re voting now? Can I vote neither of them? Can I vote Varys? Tyrion? Hell, even Sansa. I’ll take Sansa.
It sounds like from your description of the COO that Alice isn’t merely new manager freaking out, but is getting messages top-down that condones some of this behavior. I co-sign ‘dust off your resume’ advice.
What kind of rose? If it’s hardy little shrub or ground cover rose, purn it back ASAP and let it go. If it’s a larger tea rose, or more fussy climbing rose, the new growth means you missed your pruning moment for the year and I wouldn’t cut off anything unless it’s totally dead or super weak branch.
Thanks. It’s sounds weird I know, but I’m trying to sort of re-frame “Becky” for my white girl friends as including those small moments of just utter failure as ally instead of just a mindless insult. Obviously, much-younger-me failed that day in a whole bunch of unconscious ways that didn’t harm any other particular…
I was raised similarly. Small town. Largely white. Police chief lived on my block. I inherently trusted the cops. They helped me out a few times. We called them by their first names.
I totally agree Emmer about the millinery wire! I think if I were tackling those shoulders and collar I think I’d actually take the whole thing on as if it were a large hat and make the full neck/shoulder collar piece with buckram and wire the edges and seams then cover the buckram. It depends a bit on the heaviness…
Thanks for sharing! That looks fantastic. I tossed the live streaming details into my calendar.
IANAL but isn’t that basically the difference between wire fraud (Holmes) and securities fraud (Shkreli). It’s like there is an assumption that crimes having to do with stocks and commodities are more serious than other kinds of fraud...
That’s because Dr. Gardner is exactly the kind of person you should listen to: A brilliant expert cell biology and pioneer in pharmacology and gene therapy, but she’s also a lady-doc over 50,so ya know, basically invisible to the kinds of people *coughmencough* Holmes targeted.
