For obvious reasons (especially if you've seen the Weed Is Life shit go down) I'm locking this account. I'll probably approve most of y'all but better safe than sorry.

Riverdale S3:E15 

Subtitles: Sheriff Keller chuckles

But he's no longer sheriff! You need a new title for him!

I’m a big fan of homeopathy. Once I had a headache, drank a glass of water, and got better.

Stamped From The Beginning 

Ok onto part 4 with W. E. B. Du Bois

It's talking about the birth of plantation fiction which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like.

There's this good part talking about black historians. Don't revise and allow the racist shit in as "fact". Do revise and you're not "being objective"

Du Bois has this idea of the strong Black woman and the weak Black man.

And Du Bois goes north to Harvard.

autism as a trend/fad 

Seeing some neurotypicals talking like autistic people have recruited people who weren't autistic into some autism trend or fad, or even brainwashed them into a cult.
It's hogwash, obviously. Like it's some kind of 'Rapid Onset Autism' or something.
Trans people know this denial device well.
So do gay people.
It only looks sudden to someone who you were hiding it from, who doesn't know you've been struggling and grappling with shame about it for years, or even your whole life, without letting people know.
For trans and other LGBTQ+ people it's a closet, for autistic people it's masking.

Have you sanitized your e-reader (or phone) recently?

I use rubbing alcohol and q tips on mine.

this is a random thought i just had:

was thinkin' about the difference between readin' a book in original vs. readin' translated, and how the translator puts their own connotations and lens on it.
then, if you learn a language an' read the original, you still have the lens of your own experiences and connotations.
an', this all meaning, even in your native language, every book you read is unique to you an' only you. which is kinda magic, when ya' think about it.

sorry for da long post

Tsundoku boosted

out of sheer curiosity, how do you all know where you left off in a book?

(It’s “The Child and the Shadow” - very worth reading, but alas I only have a jstor link: )

We need an "oh no" person from emoji. The bubble too.


Libby: "Again Again" is ready to borrow!
Me: Oh Yes :blobcheer:
Lincoln City Libraries: You have like 10 of 14 holds available, pick them up before Tuesday or you'll owe us like 5 bucks.
Me: Oh no

Have I written posts like this before? Yes. That's why we need the emoji. Because I never learn.
