I just finished a very good anime that is airing on Netflix.

Kotaro Lives Alone is a short (10 ep) series on Netflix that follows the daily life of a kindergartner who lives alone in an apartment complex. It delves into why he is living alone and how he is handling the situation. Kotaro is very mature for his age and is one of the more observant individuals I've seen in anime.
One of the huge take-aways from this anime is the commentary on the adults in the series. In fact, this anime is more about adulthood than it is about being 5 years old.
If you like anime, this one is worth the watch.

What word can you NEVER spell correctly without using spellcheck?

Mine is Renaissance. I can attempt it, but must check to make sure it is correct.

I'm sure I am not the only one who could never undergo confirmation hearings...

because every other answer to these asswipes would be "THAT IS NONE OF YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS". Maybe even more often.

On reflection, maybe it would be "ARE YOU REALLY FUCKING ASKING ME THAT?"

It seems to me that repug legislators have discovered that they can

pass ANY legislation they want "in state", with impunity.

See abortion restriction laws, don't say gay laws, concealed weapons with no permit laws, and laws restricting the teaching of history.
These are but some of the unprecedented laws that have been passed just this year.

It is my feeling that they have only begun to shove authoritarianism down our throats. They have a taste for it now and like sharks that sense blood in the water, will rush forward to enact even more draconian legislation on us.

I wish people could see this for what it is, a move towards an authoritarian state. It scares me very much.

Finally got around to watching Mad Max: Fury Road

It was very enjoyable, but.....................I still can't get it out of my mind that they were crawling all over those intake manifolds as though they were cool as ice. And this is why wifey hates watching movies with me.

The same asswipes criticizing President Biden now

are the same ones who said "You should support the President in everything he does" when Jr invaded Iraq.

Every time they open their collective mouths, hypocritical shit flows out.

I wanted to throw something at the tv screen this morning because Seth Greenberg

was flaunting his "white privilege" and his "get off my lawn" mentality all in the same breath. Makes me want to SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!

For reference, he sees NO problem with a white coach GRABBING an AA coach after a basketball game and NOT allowing him to leave the court without listening to HIM. This attitude makes me want to
And then to follow that with "everyone should be required to shake hands after the game" bullshit. Give me a fucking break, you old white MF'er.

Rant over.

I am changing

A short while after it aired, I began watching Deadwood. I LOVE the series. It is one of the best acted and written series that I've ever seen. That viewpoint has not wavered.
The first time I viewed it, I was uncomfortable with "how" human beings were treated by those in power. I was disturbed with how little a human life was worth. This hasn't changed.
What HAS changed is that I can no longer watch Deadwood. I cannot watch while women are being abused. I cannot watch while people are being killed for NO reason at all. I can no longer watch while lives are being changed forever for money.

Maybe I have evolved or it could be that I am just less tolerant. I do not know for sure.
