i like his visual style and his pacing because old trek sometimes meandered a bit too much but every time i watch or read a new jj abrams interview i get the feeling that he thinks he’s, like, elevating the franchise even though he’s just cherrypicking the bits of trek he finds acceptable, which for the most part are just the General Space and Sci-fi bits
it’s like… imagine somebody handing him an old family recipe for chocolate chip cookies and going, “hey, jj abrams, can you update this a bit, it’s not bad but it’s kind of getting old and there are so many ingredients you can use nowadays, here i have this big cupboard full of baking stuff that you can use, i trust you” but instead of making chocolate chip cookies he just makes chocolate milkshakes and a fucking pizza because hey, you had flour and milk and things in your kitchen, right
that’s nice jj and i’m sure the pizza is very good but maybe i just had pizza maybe we wanteD the Cookies today
things I don’t get about Les Mis (the musical, I’m sure the book explains it in excruciating detail)
what even is the point of a barricade
why are people so upset about it
like, how does piling bulky objects in the middle of the street help combat social inequality
why is the military so murderously angry about bulky objects in the middle of the street
WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL
I told my government class about the Great Emu War and half the class didn’t believe me so we had my government teacher look it up on the projector oh my god
only in australia
#but have you read the cracked article on this #the emus were gifted in the art of guerrilla tactics in a way that would make the Jurassic Park velociraptors break out into applause #I laughed over that article for a long time
and then i cared about the post
things you don’t want to hear: the bartender humming “Master of the House” as he mixes your drink
Really disappointed in Cassey Ho’s (@Pop Pilates) blog post fat shaming Honey Boo Boo and her family. She’s a little girl who loves her body despite growing up in a culture of fat-hate and doing pageants where the scrutiny is even more intensified. That deserves respect. Cassey even went so far as to suggest Honey’s mom go on The Biggest Loser, a disgusting and exploitative show where fat people are shamed and lose weight in unhealthy ways. Really turned off from her. I’m thinking of finding a new work out program.
I used to love Cassey’s videos because they were fun and she’s so motivational and strength-focused instead of weight loss, but this really left a bad taste in my mouth. Like, yes their family appears to be into an ~unhealthy~ diet and don’t work out and she was criticizing that. I get it, you’re a nutritionist and a workout instructor, of course I expect you to think that, but calling a little girl “disgusting” is not the way to make your point. I really hope she makes an apology, a lot of her followers are super upset.
coming back briefly to bitch about the fact that my (white male) governor could have chosen one of two very qualified and awesome women of color to be our new senator
but instead he passed over them both and picked another white dude
eta: and he did this AGAINST DAN INOUYE’S WISHES WOW

Tracking moods is a grrrrreat idea (to be read in the voice of Tony the Tiger). But in all seriousness, it’s one of those things I never can do and I’ve heard it’s superduper useful.
Yup, gonna journal the shit out of this.
