* So if a person is deaf and therefore can't respond instantly to verbal commands it is justified for police to shoot him on sight, but if police "can't hear" because they aren't listening to neighbors yelling that "he can't hear," it is a valid excuse for murdering an innocent person.

* Look, Insane Clown Posse isn't my type of music, but I stand with them when the government is literally taking their kids away from their fans for attending a concert and criminalizing them over their tattoos. It's scary as fuck and a terrible precedent. I'm old enough to remember the PMRC and congressional hearings and lawsuits over rap and metal. It's an injustice that it's happening at all, which needs to stop, but I can easily foresee 45 having his minions criminalize listening to all sorts of music he personally doesn't like, and I know that hip hop and metal are definitely next on the list. Anything Goth, anything subculture, anything rebellious. We'll be stuck with Christian rocks and country and people will be doing jail time and losing custody etc. for stupid band tattoos they got in college.

I remember after Columbine having to defend my goth students in the Faculty Room, because there was a push to come down on them and treat them like dangerous criminals for liking Marilyn Manson music and black clothes. (I'd been Goth since '88, but one doesn't dress that way to teach). The first time I heard of ICP was in the oughts when two of my guys were getting hassled by admin over writing the logos on their notebook covers, so I went home and researched it, so I would know what I was talking about so I could advocate for them. Yes, there are drugs at the gatherings. There are drugs at music festivals and concerts and raves. It doesn't mean that anyone who liked the Grateful Dead or went to a Rave once is a dangerous gang member. It seems to me the FBI is going after the Juggaloes because they are poor, so don't have money for expensive legal defense, and they dress in a way that makes it hard for people, particularly in the media, to take their complaints seriously. They are easy to mock and ignore and belittle. hur, hur, people are having their lives ruined because they like to weir make up and listen to music on their days off.

Fuck that! I don't have to like the music or want to be part of their subculture to see them as human beings who need their human rights and fair treatment under the law.

This is a canary in the coal mine, and I refuse to mock people who are in danger of losing everything because the ruling party wants a police state.

* I know I haven't written about the people who died in a nursing home literally across the street from a working hospital with power, basically because the idea of it is so distressing and horrible and able bodied person lazy and pointless, because how fucking much effort would i have taken to move vulnerable people literally across the street to safety? I bet a lot less than setting up fans that weren't enough, and why the fuck wasn't the AC hooked up to the back up generator? They had power to run fans. That has me furious about asshole penny pinching nursing home admin who gave no fucks for vulnerable elders in their care. The place my Mom chose for herself not only had a back up generator, but a system where if the back up fucking failed in a major storm or flood there was a third emergency system where she could hook up her oxygen machine and survive like that for days. how do I know this? Because we talked over her contingency plans in advance of a big storm their the last winter before she died. (She liked to talk these sorts of things over with another competent adult, and my father being dead, and me sharing the trait of having multiple contingency plans being a comfort, she was apt to do this with me). They had a bus evacuation system if they needed to move everyone with special transport for the full nursing care building and designated evacuation locations depending on the disaster. It is possible to plan this shit out in advance if the people running a place are ethical. Those deaths didn't have to happen if anyone at all with a smidgen of authority gave too shits about the people in that facility, both as far as planning for predicable disaster (It's Florida. Hurricanes are seasonal and flooding a predictable thing that happens often enough to plan for.), and in the immediate "This isn't safe! We need to evacuate the medically fragile across the street" sense.

Well, it looks like a lot of people feel that way. The facility is closed as a crime scene, and there are likely to be a variety of criminal charges. Some of the likely charges have sentences of up to 30 years. Good. Lock the bastards up. Eight people died because of their callousness.

* I got crap sleep again as I'm still recovering from the pneumococcal vaccine. There's a steady upward trend, and again, I'll happily trade a week or so of this for 10 or more times when I don't get pneumonia. I woke with the shakes, so gave myself an extra half hour nap, as often the reset helps. It did in this case, though I'm sluggish. I managed to get out at a reasonable time to Honest Mechanic. It's looking like a $60.00 valve job. I have strong hopes of this being the last of the car things needing doing. This is taking everything I have left for the month except car insurance, so I'm completely fucked for other bills, but engine health is important. I go back Tuesday.

When I got home, the B Disabled parking was open, and that's not much further than my actual stolen spot and has the added benefit of being right by B recycling. All I had to carry was the empty disposable tea cup from the mechanics, so I tossed it in the trash and checked the cardboard recycling. Thee was not only an ideal bottom pad shape, but also a flower box in the perfect shape to hold the thing open. It will lose shape as it soaks, but I left the car with the seating propped open to air and dry in the sun. This process has been slow, but there has been noticeable improvement. Squirrel has been changing the cardboard as he has access to it at work, and I'd guess there is about half as much water in there as there was the day I bailed, maybe less, as it's hard to tell how much is in the seats, but when I opened it, it's more a drip than a waterfall.

I came home to have the toilet paper holder fall off. I was expecting it as I had to epoxy the other end last week. There is no permanent solution as the guy who built this place was terrible, so I periodically have to reattach them. I ended up making a mess as my hands are shaky, but I've hopes of another 6-8 months till the next incident. Then I got to sweep and mop the kitchen floor as Squirrel lost a piece of the blender when he unloaded the dish washer. (He did search last night). I am happy it was on the floor as the next step was going to involve taking that whole side of the kitchen apart. Still, the shakes are well back.

Squirrels project we were doing the scavenger hunt earlier in the week to get low cost ingredients for went off beautifully by the way.

* ...And I think I just killed the microwave by forgetting to turn the fan on before starting pasta on the stove top. I know better, but I'm exhausted and shaky so forgot. The fix for it is heartbreakingly easy according to the internet, The problem is, the asshole who built this place mounted things wrong. I can see half of the two screws I would need to unscrew to get the access panel open, but to unscrew them, I would have to dismount the entirety of the kitchen cabinets, which is absolutely out of the question physically. I am not tall enough with the ladder even if I did have several people to help me and somewhere to put everything in the fucking cabinets. Because the asshole who built my kitchen didn't measure anything correctly. I have unplugged it to make the screaming stop. There is a chance it will dry on it's own, as it did the other time I forgot to turn on the fan, but that time the alarm stopped in about half an hour and it's now been an hourish. Fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck. A field trip into Squirrel's cave suggests he's broken the other micro wave. No fucking way can I afford a new one and where would I put it?

Addendum: 9:50. I plugged it in to see if I could reheat the tisane, and it is working again. Fuck, that was scary.

Addendum 9:58. Microwave starts screaming again. I'll try it again tomorrow.

* Today I watched a C-SPAN recording of a Folger lecture on Shakespeare. I'll be mulling the lecture for a while, but given the location and subject matter, I couldn't help thinking of my time as a Philosophy monk. Winter's Tale, in particular always reminds me of the "Tutor" (Johnnie for Prof.) I had when we were studying it. Though I went to a number of productions in the Folgers Theater it is particularly Begger's Opera and As You Like It I associate with it, for a variety of reasons, as well as the Boy from Bethesda, who was my lover Spring of freshman year. All of this is a massive web of narrative, associations, and sense memory for me, too big and complex to get my head around at once.

I remembered so clearly the banister in front of the place we generally sat, and when they pulled back to show the audience, it was of the far side, not quite my angle, but very familiar. They did eventually pan the other way, and I could see my old seating section. The stage is so much smaller than I remember, though I was full grown when I sat in that room. In my head, the set for the Beggar's Opera seems massive and complex and exciting. I have read the play since, though never seen it. The starkness of the set behind the speaker and the smallness of the stage compared to my memory of it is such a strange thing when my scale and the design of the side seating is so spot on exact with my mental image.

Brains are weird.

* Snerk. Dick Cavett asked Micheal Caine about how he "lost his innocence." Michael Caine winged the question right back at him and leaned hard. Good for him. It was rude when he asked Betty Davis about losing her virginity too.

(Look, I will tell bits of the story when asked, but I also have no shame at all and I still obscure certain details even though no way does anyone I know know this guy, as the story does not reflect well on anyone involved. It's not funny or entertaining, so it rarely comes up. There is a difference between things one chooses to say in the context of friends discussing first times and aggressively questioning a stranger on National Television.)

In other news, wow, this interview is sexist and creepy on both sides.

* Dick Cavett Observation: The ones I've seen before are all from earlier in his career ending in maybe the beginning of the '80's. The thing I am noticing when they show an occasional interview from the '90's is how much more he talks. He did tell the occasional story in the old ones and there are the classic opening monologues most talk show hosts do still, but the focus was more on the subject. The little stories were short and mostly designed to introduce the guest, briefly prime the guest, set up a story the guest was likely to tell, or involved some past interaction with the guest. Most of his half of the conversations were things that were prone to keep the guest talking or steer towards new areas of interest. I'm noticing he's much longer winded in the later ones, more prone to ramble, things are more about him than they used to be, though he never descends to James Lipton levels of self indulgence as far as I've noticed. It's a subtle thing. Likely a slow shift from being primarily a particular sort of setting for a gem to being a full conversational partner.

* I did manage to stay up all night and turned up as promised. While he crated his cats I carried the rest of the garden into the rear seating foot space and then finished reading Edward III (The maybe Shakespeare play, not one of the many biographies or studies). My body is officially done for the weak. we got pulled over again, as a tail light had gone out, but they were kind enough to replace it at the jiffy Lube, before I took a donation load to the value village. They had other people coming to help soonish and released me, which was lucky as I barely made it home, my body was so done. I had to get out the strongest (post-op grade) pain meds this evening and Trying to make simply Asian ready noodles had me in tears twice, once for the decision making and once for the actual moving around. I did a little restock early in the month, but I don't have many of these. It was that or cereal though, and I've been in and out of overload all month and can't cope with milk, and being out of veggie substitutes noodles it was. I'm going to be a serious mess all week. I am sorry.

Tavy has been soooo good during the move emergency generally, given his age and temperament. He's not an angel, but he's trying so hard not to maul me when he is in one of his intense moods. He's been trying to run it off and letting me use things like pharmacy bags and paper towel tubes as alternatives. Mostly. And has been super sweet and cuddly most of the time.

* White Nationislist/Neo-NAZI UKIP lost all their seats in parliament, but Conservative Theresa May is still PM, so there is reason to think the Tories will go ahead with plans to speed up their murder of disabled people through things like literally starving them to death, etc. as they have promised to do if they won. Think I am exaggerating? Google it. A couple thousand people have died of starvation, suicide, etc. because of current Tory austerity measures targeting disabled people. They have also been insisting terminal patients with less than a month to live are "well enough to work" despite being bedridden and literally dying. Now google "dementia tax." Tories feel disabled people aren't dying fast enough so think rendering them homeless etc. to pay for corporate tax cuts should do the trick.

Anyway, they kept enough seats to forge ahead on the economically disastrous BREXIT. *facepalm* I’m too exhausted to properly delve into coverage out of the UK tonight to see just how bad things are apt to get even for myself, but I’ve been worrying about this for weeks, so looked up the important bits.

* For the record, I rather liked White Queen, despite the occasional problem and thing I disagreed with. White Princess has turned out to be rather a mess and has joined the Tudors in my too many things wrong with it to be good stack, which is a shame, as there are some talented people in the cast who I feel deserved better material. It's extra a shame as it's a really interesting period with a lot of real life people and politics that could have made great watching. The choice to show the York to Tudor transition had a lot of potential, and I've had a lot of thoughts I might not have otherwise had by looking at things from this angle in anticipation of the White Princess premiere, but the show didn't take me where I wanted to go that way. Instead it took me places I emphatically didn't want to got, and like the disappointing Tudors, they forgot that Henry VII was a real person with a personality and a lot of political acumen. His use of propaganda and pageantry to win hearts and minds, his subtlety... I do not recognize this lump of wood on the throne. I have long been of the opinion that Elizabeth I took strongly after her Grandfather personality wise. I can watch White Queen and clearly recognize Margaret Beaufort's personality, so they must know how to write characters, but it's like they did no research into Henry VII, and just dressed a manikin for Lizzie to act around. I accept a certain amount of change and telescoping and inaccuracy. I love both Vikings and the cheese that is the Borgias, even though I can give you a long list of things that are not true and people who are changed, displaced in time, etc..

I am way more forgiving of changes that increase representation. What little we know of RL Micheletto is nothing like show Micheletto, but you will pry my beloved show Micheletto from my cold dead hands. His arc is the most interesting thing in a show full of interesting things. Taking a very minor historical figure and doing this with him? Brilliant. Similarly Ivar likely wasn't "boneless" but a manuscript copying error gave them an excuse to add a character with a serious disability and who am I to argue with that even if sociopath paraplegic is not my idea of positive representation. And this doesn't get into things like messed up geography, Rollo and that siege where Katerina shows her genitals being misplaced in time, Cesaere's lack of disfigurement, etc.. Seriously, I'm not a purist if the art works as art and the characters, period, and events are...I don't know close enough? I will except wiggling around with period contemporary rumors, events in dispute, historical figures about which little is known, combining multiple RL people for obvious narrative reasons, interpretations I don't agree with but which are plausible. Tudors threw out Henry VIII's entire personality though which is a serious fucking problem, him being the main character. I admit to knowing not much about RL Lizzie, especially as compared to people like Margaret Beaufort, Richard III, Henry VII, Margaret of Anjou, Henry VI, etc.. I hadn't realized there WAS a gap there and that I would like to know more about her until I was thinking about White Princess before the premiere. (I DO intend to do something about that eventually, but not right now as I'm three or four years on a private project mostly about early modern France for my own amusement and I have stacks of entirely the wrong research materials stacked all over, many of which are ILL and have to be read before I do anything else.) So I can not state one way or another anything about this Elizabeth vs. the RL one. I can swallow them deciding to make the pretender real, but why can't they show not tell how Kingly he is meant to be instead of making him annoying and rather wooden. I had some serious issues with White Queen Costuming, but White Princess costuming is worse to the point of being constantly distracting instead of just being sporadically distracting. The characters were just frankly more interesting in Queen, whereas I don't really enjoy anyone much in Princess nor is there really anyone to like or root for except maybe the Grandmother hiding out in Burgundy? But she's hardly there. Or maybe the put upon cousin? And the politic are a complete mess. Not moving a few battles or an abbey around (I'm looking at you Borgias and Vikings) or simplifying enough so the viewers have a clue what's going on in a one hour show (ditto), which again, I'm cool with as long as you don't push it too far, but Princess needs an international context to make sense and it doesn't have enough of one to tell the political story they seem to be trying to tell. Yes, they go to Burgundy, and once to Spain (which I'd happily have forgiven for the reason I'm cool with Lion in Winter even though the family Christmas never happened. Lion in Winter gets the Characters right and includes enough politics to make sense, except that depiction of Spain is a complete stereotypey mess and that really didn't seem like Queen Isabella), but You need way more Scotland and France at minimum for the politics to make sense. You pretty much always need France and usually Scotland to make English medieval and Early Modern foreign policy and civil war type things make sense, just like France in that same stretch of about 1200 years needs England, Spain/HRE/various German states depending on period, the low countries, the bits that are often part of France or HRE/German state but sometimes independent, and often Italy. This stuff is entwined. Bits of France are England for a big chunk of time. English nobility was still speaking French centuries after that time a French invasion force conquered them back in 1066. French frequently sends support to Scotland and to various parties in English throne wars. They endlessly inter marry. Once you pull the focus out far enough to be talking about non-English alliances, you kind of need to at least properly sketch in the international context. They don't do it well or coherently in Princess. If they wanted to focus so heavily on the family drama, they needed to draw the characters better, the way they did in Queen. If they want to do politics, they needed to do the politics better. Instead it's all muddled and unfocused and messy in a way that has me glaring angrily at the costumes or wondering why scenes and whole subplots are their if they weren't going to do them properly.

I am told these are adapted out of novels. I had intended to try them after seeing Queen, but now I'm suspecting they aren't worth my time.

* The Trump administration insists that forceably outing trans children by forcing them to use the wrong bathrooms and thus subjecting them to danger of violence and bullying is a measure somehow designed to "ensure the safety of students" and that the right to discriminate is a matter of states rights and not one of equal protection under the law as promised by the U S Constitution. I thought the Civil War and the 14th Amendment was meant to settle this issue, but Trump and sessions want to roll us back to 1850, so I suppose it's not a surprise.

* The sleep attempt failed, as every time I started to drift off to sleep, it was like sand was filling my lungs. I managed to score an emergency Doctor appointment. they nearly forced me to go to the emergency room instead, but I pointed out that's an 8-12 hour wait on a Saturday with me coughing in the waiting room with no access to treatment, which would not be pleasant for anybody. They ended up adding a couple more meds, one of which I am allergic to, but she thinks we can get away with four days at a low dose. (Not anaphalactic, but the last time I took it I was still a healthy athlete and was bedridden for a week, barely able to make it to the bathroom). I did manage a couple of cough interrupted hours of sleep with the new meds. They kept me all afternoon because they were worried about oxygen levels.

Poor Tavy his having a really hard time with it. He just wants to curl up on his human for a cuddle nap, but the human is making terrible sounds and was gone for hours and is not following the schedule and is clearly sick and can't lie still. It's starting to freak him out, I can tell.

* A few of you have asked recently, and I suspect others of you are curious, so here is the basic FAQ on the main things wrong with me (there are others, but these two are why I'm Federally disabled).

I have Ankylosing Spondalytis (which is an autoimmune disease similar to lupus and rheumatoid arthritis) and cystic fibrosis carrier syndrome, which means my lungs are weak, prone to damage, gradually degenerating on their own, and I catch basically everything airborne I'm exposed to. AS and CF Carrier are a bad combination as the CF carrier rules out a lot of the meds that help slow AS degeneration, and the AS means that my immune system is way more interested in eating bits of me it doesn't approve of like the cartilage in my spine than in fighting off the invaders my genetically borked lungs let in. There is a particularly brutal bronchitis going around. They are dropping like flies at area nursing homes. Like nursing home residents and AIDS patients, people like me tend to get hit hard in epidemics like this. It's normal. One day, I will catch something like this, my lungs will collapse and i will die. This is how my Mother went and her Aunt Ruth. My mother's sister with full blown CF died in college of pneumonia. Before antibiotics, people with cf carrier tended to die young of things like pneumonia, bronchitis, etc.. The antibiotic revolution let folks live a lot longer. Aunt Ruth was in her 70's. My Mother was 70. Not a bad span, but the quality of life is a lot lower. It is in the nature of it.

This infection is very serious, even by my standards, and I had MRSA in my lungs for six months that one time, but this isn't the one that will kill me.

Side Note: this is why it's Ableist to mock people for doing activism at home, not that any of my followers are likely to do such a thing, but it might help you explain it to friends. Not only is it physically painful and exhausting to me to go to things like protests and rallies in person, jeopardizing my ability to, say, feed and bath myself that week, but it also exposes me to pathogens in quantity my body flat out can't handle, and the more damage serious infections do, the more scarring on my lungs, the more undermined what passes for my immune system is, the more years I lose not only off my life span, but the more years I lose off my doesn't need a portable oxygen tank time, etc.. Rev. Barber, for example, is already a fucking hero if you are only counting the work he's done with moral Mondays. When you consider he is doing it with AS, and likely his every step is agony... yeah. I honor those of us with disabilities who go out there at greater cost and risk, but not all of us can do it. And that's just me. Consider someone who is agoraphobic or has serious anxiety or whose autism or SID make being in crowds incredibly fucking difficult. (I also happen to have SID and I really don't deal well with Strangers touching me which happens at big protests and marches). It's ablest to treat folks with extra challenges like this as lazy and mock us for choosing the sort of activism that better suits our strengths and doesn't come with a massive extra cost other people don't have to consider. We aren't slacktavists, we are people who are trying our hardest and it's a shitty thing to attack us for wanting to be able to, say walk to the toilet under our own power tomorrow, or not deal with a week of serious sensory over load when the person doing the mocking never has to make that kind of choice, and it's not like there aren't a whole host of things, like phoning Congress critters to complain that are also effective.

* Legion has a really interesting aesthetic, but if you are planning on watching it and haven't yet it includes attempted rape, suicide, and a lot of things that might be triggering around gas lighting and institutionalization. I really liked the Aubry Plaza character, which I am told is a middle aged man in the comics (which I haven't read) and they deliberately didn't change anything else about the character except age and gender, which is rather brilliant. I am not sure how I feel about the way the Institution is depicted and I am generally wary of the trope where a person is not mentally ill but institutionalized for power. I do plan to stick with it, because it's well executed and they really have gotten me interested in the mauin character and the hell is going on.

But if the Republicans are willing to kill the filibuster today, they would be willing to kill the filibuster next time around, and to force through an extremist on a narrow majority vote. That is how the Republican Party plays Supreme Court politics now."

* The Hollow Crown, Season 2:
Like pretty much anyone with any kind of background in late Medieval English History, I have Feelings about the War of the Roses. Yes, I was a 14th century specialist, but frankly the 14th and 15th Century political and social history are particularly logical to clump together because of the way events fell out and long term stuff like Recurrent plague's effects on demographic trends and thus society, economics, art, the legal status of peasants, etc; the Hundred Years War (which was longer than that and more lots of little connected wars); and the whole complicated situation set up by Edward III having so many wives and descendants and the subsequent long term dynastic in fighting. (I used to occasionally be asked to explain the War of the Roses.
I could generally give a satisfying answer in about an hour, but I required paper, a writing utensil, and to start with Edward III and his children. I'd sketch out the family tree and with that as a visual aid could get us all the way to Henry VII in a coherent narrative that skipped details like battles, but explained the whys and the major players which is what most casual questioners want anyway).

Anyway, I've seen people descend to name calling and the occasional fist fights over the board game, Kingmaker. Emotions run high over York vs. Lancaster and nearly everyone who cares even a little bit about this stuff takes sides. You can generally tell which side a historian is on pretty easily, because Historians especially have Feelings about this. I have Feelings too. It's just mine are a bit above average complicated. I'm that weirdo who can simultaneously adore Eleanor of Aquitaine and be terribly fond of Henry II. I'm that oddball who has massive sympathy for Edward II AND Isabella of France. I am all about the open eyed embracing of problematic fave going way the hell back into my childhood, and I happen to be the sort of person who loves the historical Margaret of Anjou and Richard III both. No really. Because the historical personages are both pretty fucking amazing.

Which brings us to Shakespeare, who is writing these three plays under a Tudor sovereign. He is not writing about the historical Richard III who's fall was really mostly about him being a reformer who championed Justice and rights of ordinary people in a way that pissed of nobles who were used to riding rough shod over the land rights in particular of commoners. No, Shakespeare's Richard is based off some Tudor propaganda written long after the fact to justify their overthrow of a King who was at the time fairly popular with ordinary people. They had to blacken his image as part of the attempt to solidify their rule after literally decades of extreme turmoil that had killed off a lot of people, and because it was well above average deadly for nobles created a lot of political disruption on top of the usual economic and human misery levels. When I say based off the work of a Tudor apologist, I mean a specific dude writing on the payroll of a Tudor King as part of a very well designed propaganda campaign that also employed visual symbolism and pageantry. Tudors were very modern when it came to full scale multiple medium propaganda commissioned and designed to create and reinforce legitimacy, much as Louis XIV was to do later in 17th century France in response to a whole lot of problems and disruptions. This is one of the reasons why the accession of Henry VII makes a good place to put the start of the early Modern era in England, if one is assigning them. (Periodization is an arbitrary thing, but that's a whole other long discussion).

So what we have is not an Historical Richard III, but one designed to please the Tudor monarch who's good graces were required if Shakespeare wanted to keep writing and acting in plays, and the Henry VI (pt 1 & 2) plays need to both work as plays, but lead to a place where Henry VII was a good and necessary end to all these troubles under the Houses of Lancaster and York. The dissonance between the people I know from history and the characters in the play can make these a little hard for me to watch.

* Walking Dead (Spoilers, Abuse, Torture):
I've written before about Carol and Darryl as abuse survivors and how that informs their responses and survival strategies in the post apocalyptic world. There are a whole lot of things the walking dead fucks up, particularly lately. I think their abuse survivors isn't one of those. I looked at Carol in Alexandria wearing her Junior League Homemaker Mask and I saw resilience and a re-purposed survival skill. My skill set is rather different given the nature of my abuse and the way so much of it was interrogation and psychologically based, but I look at that sort of adaptation and deliberate and intelligent use of survival techniques and I admire the hell out of it. It's why Carol is one of the few threads still holding me to the show after the latest debacles.

I think it's time to talk about it again in the case of Daryl in light of this week's episode. TW Discussion of Torture and Abuse: )

Darryl is a Survivor and one I can believe in, the way Carol is a survivor and one I can believe in, and I think it is with these characters that some of their strongest writing and characterization lie. So I think I'll stick with it a little longer even though I have no fucks to give for Rick Grimes and I'm still pissed at the twin botches at the end of last season and start of this.
