  • Very off topic. I think I've got clinical depression

    Talk to your doctor about this as soon as you can.
    I have boughts with depression - have even been on meds for a bit to get me through the worst of it.
    It's good that you recognize what's going on - that's the first step.  Talking to your doctor is a good next step.

    I also wanted to let you know that you're welcome to message me if you want to/need to talk.  Things may seem dark now, but they *will* get better!

    Uma Thurman told her story, and it is heartbreaking and infuriating. It's not just about Weinstein -- her agency, her director (Tarantino) were complicit, and Tarantino was abusive and degrading, and then there is the shocking part about the car on the Kill Bill set.

    Remember Uma quivering with what seemed like anger on the red carpet a few months ago?:
    “I used the word ‘anger’ but I was more worried about crying, to tell you the truth,” she says now. “I was not a groundbreaker on a story I knew to be true. So what you really saw was a person buying time.”

    And then:
    “Personally, it has taken me 47 years to stop calling people who are mean to you ‘in love’ with you. It took a long time because I think that as little girls we are conditioned to believe that cruelty and love somehow have a connection and that is like the sort of era that we need to evolve out of.”

    I do wish the NYT had assigned someone else to Uma. She deserves better than Maureen Dowd -- was Jodi Kantor or Megan Twohey unavailable? The piece is poorly written and reads more like a puff piece in a magazine or tabloid.
    It comes as no surprise at all to me that Tarantino is an abusive prick. 
    He has like 20 kangol hats for fucks sake! 
     :D  :D :D

    I had no idea what a Kangol hat was, and was like 'Oh no, what the hell is that?!'.  I was a bit nervous to Google the term, but I did.  I was relieved to find they were just ... hats.  Ugly, but ordinary hats.   :D

    Is it wrong that I clicked the 'like' button for someone confessing their hatred for another human being?
    I did it too, so I'm going to say no.    :)
