I’m depressed and burnt out. Being on here isn’t helping. So I’m taking a break. Reach out to me via email if you need me.

i say this every year but: something nice you can do in december is send a note or an email to a writer who wrote/did something you liked this year (book, podcast, article, whatever) and tell them so; in my experience it can be so lovely to receive around this time

Quoted @Almaharel

Good morning to everyone that’s writing me about the #goldenglobes
I feel you but know this.
I was on the inside for the first time this year. These are not our people and they do not represent us.
Do not look for justice in the awards system.

We are building a new world.

Best Supporting Actor, Winner: Song Kang Ho, PARASITE. #LAFCA

it's important to recognize the skill of the actors in parasite. there's a tendency to see the film purely in terms of technical genius, which can feed into a general dehumanization of actors of asian descent, who rarely get their dues in the u.s.
xo, management

trying to pick which part of this watchmen episode hurt my feelings the most n it was definitely the line “don’t all relationships end in tragedy?”. bro it is a sunday night i’m not trying to think like this

I discussed #WatchmenHBO episode 8, "A God Walks into Abar," with director and series exec producer Nicole Kassell. Best thing I learned: the titular Vietnam bar is the same one where Eddie Blake, The Comedian, gets his face slashed open in the comic.

Quoted @sepinwall

Odo could’ve been one of the more thankless roles in all of Star Trek. Rene Auberjenois’s face was buried under latex that much of its expressiveness, and often he was swapped out for CGI. But what he could do with his eyes, voice & posture... wow. RIP

I was once lucky enough to meet Rene Auberjonois at an industry party. I was nearly incoherent with admiration. He was as classy and wonderful as you might imagine. I’m such a fan of his empathic and indelible work as Odo and in so many other roles. RIP to one of the greats 💚

With Keanu's recent resurgence I have been thinking a lot about his relationship to the female gaze and status as a cinematic sensualist. I went long writing about it for @vulture
