"The effort to ~manifest~ and ~normalize~ across Instagram specifically ranges from bot-like nonsense splashed over gorgeous imagery to clinical-grade psychological advice with entry-level graphic design. Anyone can contribute to rebuilding global mental health with a stock image of the galaxy and a quote ripped from goodreads.com."

"Did you ever used to watch that show called Star Trek? (cheers from crowd) Oh... I just had a flash of this show, that I saw while I was singing this tune.

quote from the story 

"I realised he just wanted to understand what had happened to him, and more about how technology works. Thatโ€™s the same kind of curiosity I had, that started this whole surrealist three-act drama. Thatโ€ฆ wasnโ€™t really what I was expecting from Tony Abbott, but itโ€™s what I found."

Not sure if I posted about it already, but I recently became obsessed with this Oblivion NPC dialogue YouTube channel, which is just edited clips from a series of English-language training videos made by a community college teacher. I have watched every one of these videos at least twice. Here is a good one: youtu.be/keNTVD2vvUI

Just watched a contestant whip through EVERY correct answer in a Dolly Parton category on Jeopardy and the other contestants clapped for her afterward. What a joy.

In a lot of ways, it's almost poetic that the summer of the uprising for Black lives has led to a world where even lots of WHITE people in America now have to acknowledge their government doesn't give a fuck about them.

I have thought a lot about what it would mean to forgive the Trump supporters in my life, but that's going to be hard to do thinking about the permanent damage this is all going to do, the world it will leave behind for my nephews.
