  • The Three Body Problem, and the triumphant? return of The Double Ds

    I wouldn’t watch anything they do unless the reviews were absolutely glowing. Those guys suck. 

    I would boycott them just on the fact they wanted to make a show where the South won the civil war. F them. 
  • Dark subtitles or dubbed?

    I watched it in the original German and read the English subtitles. I will never watch a foreign film or tv show that has been dubbed. To me, it is one of the worst sins in art.
    This. That's how I feel. I think dubbing is pretty lame. Enjoyed hearing the German in Dark. Such a fantastic show. 
  • MLB 2020

    Yankees off to a good start. Aaron Judge just needs to stay healthy. Seems like the short season might benefit them more than most teams.

  • Coronavirus / COVID-19

    I am an ICU nurse and I got COVID early July. Went through quarantine for almost 3 weeks and obviously was out of work. Last week my husband started to have fevers so he's been quarantining for 6 days now while we wait for his COVID results. Problem is, I was supposed to work all weekend and because he is in quarantine,  I have to be out of work to take care of our daughter while we wait for results. Im not complaining about the time i get to spend with her because she's awesome. What frustrates me is that I see these athletes being tested every other day for COVID, and here I am a nurse just trying to go to work during a pandemic and can't because we're waiting 10 days for results. It may be up to 2 weeks. The disparity in how health care works for different people in this country has never been more prominent.  
    I complete agree with your post. I hope we can all work to change some of those inequalities going forward. 

    Let me also say, thank you for what you do. I hope your husband is okay and you're able to get back to work soon.

    We just had a new baby and my gratitude for everything nurses do is off the charts. You literally put your life on the line so other people can survive. True heroes. Thank you.

    Florida set back to back new records for daily deaths.  186 yesterday, 216 today.  And Disney is still open and schools open in a few weeks...

    I just can't understand how we're not only watching this happen, but actively encouraging it to get worse.
    I think it is explainable. The last four years there has been a war on science, facts, and the media. People of all backgrounds have been coditioned to distrust facts. For good reason, there have been major misinformation campaigns that blur the lines of what actually is true. I've seen people I grew up with (mostly POC in inner cities) who think it's either a hoax or a government conspiracy. Nevermind the rich people who don't want covid to get in the way of their profit sheet. 

    The U.S. is in bad shape and i don't have much hope things are going to get better. Think about how many people still refuse to wear a mask? Pure insanity.
