  1. I think you have to axe lab meat. First, because it's not meat, and second you're still normalizing the consumption of 'meat'. If you truly want to end meat consumption you have to end meat.
  2. Currently in the virtual waiting room for Cubs presale tickets. Hoping to see a game while we're in Chicago in a few weeks for my birthday. They're playing the Marlins but eh, we can cheer on Joc. Fingers crossed! ETA After 4 different carts got dumped and a return to the waiting room, I finally won the Cubs Hunger Games! See you in a few weeks, Joc!
  3. The fourth tweet in this thread is spectacular, along with the poster that got dude in hot water. Also, this is some next level bullshit. 'doing a coup'
  4. Toronto, man. Sweet Jesus. I hope the Habs keep it going.
  5. It definitely broke me. I've always liked Kate Winslet but this really put her up with my Queen Cate Blanchett.
  6. Apparently there are quite a few people invested in this final and it's crashing HBOMAX.
  7. I binged all 10 episodes of Panic on Amazon Prime last night. Lauren Oliver definitely made some improvements in adapting her book. Overall it was very ok, but the breakout performance was Ray Nicholson, son of Jack. The changes from book to show definitely benefited his character, coincidentally named Ray.
  8. Dave Bautista wasn't too bad in Bushwick either. I highly recommend the full audiobook of World War Z.
  9. I take it you've not read Michael Harriot before. But even if you have, you're really not understanding what he's saying - that so much of last summer's white allyship was performative and trendy. And because it was performative and trendy, there was backlash from clout chasers being called out for said performance art. Be it corporations or social media posts, white people pledged to do the work and they didn't. They started, then moved on to the next thing when it got too difficult or summer was over or whatever. And as a white cishet woman, I can tell you there is a special kind of performance art in a very specific subset of white women who would, instead of digging in and doing better/learning, absolutely get turned off and turn against Black activists calling them out for centering whatever effort they made around themselves. I hope Ibram X. Kendi, Jason Reynolds, Ijeoma Oluo, and Layla Saad got looooots of royalties because that's all they got from last summer's run of anti-racist book clubs.
  10. This Oilers Jets game has been wild the past three or so minutes.
  11. You want to do outreach? Reform policing. Let police and policing make some changes that merits outreach. It's not on the marginalized communities that have continually been abused by policing to welcome the same old same old into their spaces. If you spend 364 days a year abusing a community why on earth would you expect to be welcome among them for a few hours on the 365th? Especially to go back to abusing the community once the festivities are over?
  12. Anything that recenters away from whiteness - the subject matter, the creators, the experts - is always outrageously wrong/biased/agenda'd and isn't to be trusted. Period. The added bonus of flipping back on cancel culture and suppression of expression is just *chef's kiss*
  13. I like fired up Tim Ryan. There's plenty of Dems not living in reality though
  14. I think it was to be used for the ear tube surgery.
  15. Re: baby daddy Re: the gut punch
  16. Lewis Tan is the lame-ass white boy? The movie was garbage, but I never saw the original nor played the video game so I don't suffer from nostalgia on it.
  17. I am a few episodes into the first season of Pose, and the category is Excellence in Writing and Performance.
  18. Los Angeles of Los Angeles. Phew.
  19. As of this week my mom (Moderna), and my middle sister (AZ) both on the Ottawa side of the river, and my youngest sister (Pfizer) on the Gatineau side have had their first jabs. Two weeks ago the age group dropped to over 40 for AZ in Ontario? Ottawa? Anyways middle and BIL qualified.
  20. I really enjoyed it, even if it felt crammed and rushed in spots. The casting was perfect and the costumes gorgeous (and I very much want a kefta now). During the last episode I cheered during two big books lines. I might have spent too much time wondering about Kaz and Co. I do hope a certain privateer is well-cast for the (much expected) second season. In closing, Ben Barnes. <dreamy sigh>
