Window in the bedroom is open, so I close the door and from the bathroom. However the dog runs into the bathroom and opens the door into the bedroom because of course he does. Is he still in the bedroom? No. But the door was shut and he had to check it out. Window in the bedroom was open and the bathroom door is open. A+ dog.
CIA history - Dulles brothers - Indonesia Show more
...they’ve got all these pro American military folks there. But American CIA is backing rebels because Indonesian govt is allowing the communist party to EXIST???
And so the Indonesian military is like “nope” and thus being considered anti-American by Dulles brothers.
Americans are the worst. They should be anti-American.
Listening to A Legacy of Ashes — history of the CIA.
And I’m like ...holy shit, the Dulles brothers tho. I had no idea how bad it was. Dang.
Really getting into and enjoying Dishonored 2. Sneaky/non-lethal play is a huge draw for me
Hoping to avoid the following responses:
- Ruth doesn't understand the song's hist-ory (there's like 2 paragraphs on that!)
- Ruth doesn't like Woody Guthrie (literally have a pic of him saved on my phone ... for some reason?)
I've been sitting with these thoughts for a while on some of the effects of singing "This Land is Your Land" at rallies, demonstrations, etc. This post is about recognizing and considering unintentional and situational implications, particularly re: settler colonialism. The tl;dr is that I can't not hear the words of manifest destiny in it any more.
...basically when writing the post, I don’t want to reiterate everything which can be read online or get too worked up in criteria for singing or... just like, think about it?
Got a tricky blog post I want to write tonight. It’s essentially a “maybe not with the unironic singing of ‘This Land is Your Land’” at protests.
The song and its history are a lot more nuanced so I’m not gonna say “oh this is a bad song” and it’s sung with a welcoming sentiment. But the unironic “this Land was made for you and me” thoughtlessly reinforces manifest destiny ideas.
For Guthrie’s history of writing it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Land_Is_Your_Land
Yesterday, for I think the first time, I heard someone who said that they had a loud voice but they would use the microphone anyway. It was amazing.
CWs aren't just about avoiding content Show more
Consider the site https://www.doesthedogdie.com/ - it's a single-purpose site that lets you know something important about a movie. Most people don't use it to completely avoid movies - just to mentally prepare themselves so they're not as shocked and emotional when it happens.
Think of CWs the same way. It's not that you can't discuss politics, it's letting people know a conversation is about politics so they can be prepared.
My dog is basically a highly opinionated teddy bear.
Trying to figure out what to do on my Saturday and I mean the answer is probably “quilting” but yknow what kind/how?
