Still can’t believe he came home! So happy that we got to show him how much we all love him and give him the proper send off that we didn’t get a chance to last season.
He is an Everton legend and my hero.
I love that once NYRB-Revs was done Cahill flew to Liverpool for Moyes’s last Goodison match. Classy move from a classy guy.
“You talked to one of my lieutenants. He has, over the years, played the role repeatedly and with great conviction. More often than not, he’s done so to protect my identity. Other times, it was because I suspected a potential client might.. struggle with my gender. As if men had a monopoly on murder.”
#let me explain to you how genius the deconstruction of Irene Adler is #because in making her a conscious manipulation; an artful and purposeful creation by moriarty in order to ensnare sherlock #they have destroyed The Woman; the one individual who eclipsed the whole of her sex and at whose feet Sherlock fell #they’ve taken the goddess down off her pillar and revealed the woman in the fridge was a doll all along #Irene Adler is only a story; can only ever be a story; because there is no Woman #only women #and they are villains as well as heroines and they are clever even when they make mistakes and they can hold the world together #whether to take advantage of it or to save it for the people they love #but there is no Woman #there never could be #and Sherlock had to learn that #elementary #the best goddamn show #your favs could never
GODDAMN this was a fantastic episode.

On New York’s best doughnuts
“That’s Peter Pan doughnuts in Brooklyn. It’s a Polish bakery. We shot nearby once for 30 Rock. Its white-cream-filled powdered doughnut. And I really believe, when I first tried it, if I had a penis, I would put it in this doughnut. I finally understand what you guys are thinking about and what motivates you guys.” (Esquire, 2010)
So yesterday I took a tour of New York Public Radio (the folks who run WNYC, WQXR, New Jersey Public Radio, and the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space). I got to see inside a few of the broadcast studios, walked around the newsroom, saw the offices of some of my favorite hosts (Brooke Gladstone’s was my favorite - anyone who has “BEWARE OF ZOMBIES” tape on her office window has to be amazing), and went through the WQXR Music Library and the WNYC Archives. Such a great day.
“In 2010, such legislation was introduced, and died when it was filibustered by Republicans in the Senate. More generally, media organizations have been lobbying for a federal shield law for decades, and Congress has been resolutely unwilling to pass one…. Politically, Obama is basically daring Republicans to put their money where their mouths are. You want to make the DOJ leak investigation into an issue of executive overreach? Fine. Then rein it in. Pass a law making it clear what DOJ can and can’t do in leak investigations.”

IDK how casting Bagels Cucumbers as Khan isn’t disrespectful to Gene Roddenberry tbh.
That man fought networks tooth and nail to have people of different races on his show. He fought long and hard to have an interracial kiss on TV.
My grandmother does not like Sci-Fi, but you better believe her ass was watching Star Trek, you know why? Because it was one of the few places you could see a black woman on TV. And she had an important job! She was important! She wasn’t just in the background.
Shit, as fake and hokey as Chekov’s accent was, he made sure there was a russian on the show, why? BECAUSE HIS VERSION OF THE FUTURE WAS ONE OF DIVERSITY AND PEOPLE GETTING ALONG KINDA SORTA.
NOT LIKE THE OTHER TREKS TRIED TO PRESERVE THAT MESSAGE
(No I don’t know about the dude doing the Blue Steel back there, I barely remember Enterprise it’s boring)
“It’s about the actors performance.”
MAAAN, fuck that noise.
No, it’s not, there are HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of actors out there of Indian descent. You’re telling me that Binglebangle Coochiebutt was better than all of them? Show me the tapes, I gotta see that. Show me them auditions that I’m pretty sure they didn’t even do because casting a white dude is easier than being not a bastard.
People of color already struggle when it comes to seeing ourselves in the media, and before you go “But he’s a baaaad guy.” No one is saying that PoC can’t be cast as bad guys. It’s that we’re cast as the same kind of bad guys each and every fucking time. Mindless, one note, stereotypical.
Khan was different, he was smart, he was strong, he was cunning, he was layered. He garnered the respect of his enemies he was that fucking great. AND HE WAS BROWN. AWESOME SAUCE YEEEEEAAAAAH.
But nope, let’s cast a white dude because who gives a shit about diversity. HAHAHAA WE HONOR U GENE RODDENBERRY BY WHITEWASHING.
P.S I’m just gonna link this cause shut up I do what i want.
Man I was hoping Cumberbatch wasn’t going to be Khan and now apparently he is and I want to punch Abrams in the goddamn face and now I’m just not going to see it at all because (a) it’s been spoiled for me and (b) it’s been spoiled for me for all the right reasons - because the casting is just bullshit and honestly ruins the franchise.
