Director Jean-Mark Vallée has died unexpectedly. He was only 58. I really enjoyed his work on “Sharp Objects” especially.
Ricky Schroder is an ass. He also helped bail Kyle Rittenhouse out of jail. He said it "pissed him off" that Rittenhouse was in jail because "he's just a kid" - sure, a kid who took a gun he shouldn't have had, crossed state lines and murdered two people, then went home and went to bed. Now he's posing with neoNazis, giving white power signs in pictures. Nice kid.How are you guys feeling about the CDC's new mask recommendations for the vaccinated? I trust the science, I do... and I'm fully vaccinated, but... I do not feel ready at all to stop wearing masks and I'm not going to. It just feels too soon for that, and masks are such an easy thing to do. Plus now that they're saying not enough people are getting vaccinated to reach herd immunity in the U.S., it worries me that we're going too fast in relaxing and who knows what variants will develop. I read that the largest nurse's union in the US is against it and says it isn't based on science or public health. I plan to continue wearing one and being cautious, just like I have been. I don't plan to travel anytime soon. I'm very fortunate that my small company took a survey to see how many wanted to keep working from home and 90% of us do, so we're able to keep that up. I was comforted by this Vice article: "People Aren't Addicted to Wearing Masks, They're Traumatized" because while I'm certainly not traumatized like health care workers or other essential workers and I didn't lose any family members to COVID, the last year and a half has been filled with a lot of uncertainty, so it makes sense that maintaining some sense of control feels better.I'm really sorry about your cousin @Michelle
I think we're going to learn some completely crazy things over the next weeks and months. There are MANY indications of inside help. I am no conspiracy theorist, but there are so many things coming out just one week later. Now I will say that he's making a lot of connections, but the various things he's talking about are all pretty well documented and I won't be surprised if he's pretty close.Seth Abramson thread: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1349142068061478912.html?fbclid=IwAR2nzUhWqeBCRoMYEgYntc2VzXFCS57EPMXOCNCm8eY0NGe5gyiDZC3F78k
The FBI has issued a warning that there will be armed protests at all the state capitols and DC, from Jan. 16-20, and they're planning to take over government buildings. This is really scary, and things are going to get worse.I'm beyond infuriated that the same Republicans who instigated this are now calling for unity and blaming Biden and the Democrats for not just going, "Oh well... let's move on." It's inexcusable, but their actions have been inexcusable for a long, long time.
