keith david is of course the greatest, but he also should have been a much bigger star. a guy who just radiates charisma. and that voice!

people think of this as a horror movie but i really see it as one of the great paranoia thrillers as well

the scene when they are testing the blood…just the high point of the film. absolutely perfect.

For my second episode of @ezraklein 's show I spoke with the great @marthasjones_  about democracy and citizenship and who shapes the ideals we hold as citizens. It was a wonderful conversation!

We spoke about two of her books in particular. The first was Birthright Citizens: A History of Race and Rights in Antebellum America.

And the second was the more-recent Vanguard: How Black Women Broke Barriers, Won the Vote, and Insisted on Equality for All

very excited about this lens i bought for my speed graphic

so we are watching THE SUM OF ALL FEARS because it was in this jack ryan box set i own and ben affleck isn’t even bad it’s just that the character does not work as a young man

the whole point of jack ryan is that he is a middle-aged fantasy. he should be in his mid-thirties at the youngest, well established with his career and family.

harrison ford was so good in part because he could sell with total sincerity the idea that ryan would rather be anywhere doing anything other than being in the thick of the action


an election where people are waiting for 7 or 8 hours to cast a ballot is not a free and fair election

rand paul using the senate gym and pool despite knowing he might have coronavirus is a clue in the mystery of why his neighbor whipped his ass.

honestly don’t know how one watches any of these videos and don’t see how the police are wildly escalating the situation whenever they can. hell, showing up in paramilitary gear is itself an escalation.

if you drink a milkshake and have a stomach ache, your first thought shouldn't be "was i poisoned?" it should be "well this is what i get for drinking 12 to 16 ounces of milk, cream and sugar as a grown-ass person"

a faction of american elites are openly arguing that we should sacrifice at least a million of our citizens to keep the “economy” going, by which they mean the stock market. blood for shareholder value.

deputizing citizens to suppress the rights of other citizens while courts say “our hands are tied if private citizens are suppressing rights” is some real 1876 shit

regular reminder that the idea of “black on black crime” as a unique form of violence is an attempt to pathologize the general fact that violent crime happens between people in close proximity to each other, which in a segregated society means most violent crime is intra-racial.

not sure anything has quite gotten to me the way the drive to make rittenhouse a right-wing hero of self-defense has. it is, to me, the single most ominous development of the year.

The real story here is that he was arrested near his home in Illinois and not on the street in Kenosha, despite walking through a line of police officers after shooting.
