just managed a score of 19 on both the PHQ-9 and the GAD-7. oh dear.
Check out this adorable, delicate little walnut book! Made from nothing but a walnut and a ribbon, the book opens to reveal an accordion of tiny photographs of Maine. It appears to be a souvenir or memory book from someone’s trip. A charming and mysterious miniature!
a drawing about optimism
I assumed the skull was actually saying all the dialog and that made this so so adorable please tell me a skull suspended in blackness says nice optimistic things to people
it also has been co-opted to push a mandatory performative sexuality that just SHOCKINGLY ends up being oriented to the male gaze which is why I think being critical of how it is used is important
Postcard and I had a phone conversation recently. Not news, I basically call her every time I see a cool dog. We were talking about PJ Ransone, as you do, and about how he was supposed to be cast in a much larger role in Treme (POSTCARD, WATCH TREME - EVERYONE WATCH TREME) and why I think it was probably a good thing he wasn’t cast as Sonny because he actually is a recovering addict former musician and that’d be a bit much to watch. We then turned to ‘the cast of the Wire, why aren’t they in everything?’ which is a traditional topic of conversation.
And then it came to me.
Michael K Williams would, obviously, make a tremendous Othello. But James Ransone would be the ideal Iago to his Othello - he might actually understand Iago, which is more than most Iagos do.
And then, thinking about staging (conversation with Postcard, remember?): you could set them as gangsters, in a way that’d actually make the idea of them as soldiers, in a hierarchy, work. And you could fit them into a Detroit of sorts, which means Ophelia could be a Councilman’s daughter. Who’d play Ophelia is something I’ve still not figured out.
