This will probably be uncomfortable for all of us.

I'd like to offer moral support, but I have questionable morals. (Cis/bi/magical realism girl.)

Steadicam inventor Garrett Brown takes actor Danny Lloyd for a ride on his Steadicam just outside The Shining’s Hedge Maze set on the backlot at MGM-British Studios. Brown discovered that Danny was about the same weight as the camera, so he would give the boy rides in a makeshift swing hanging from the device.

  2. Facebook Mentions Versus Facebook Pages Apps

    williamshatner:

    I want to talk and compare an app that most of you don’t have access to: Facebook Mentions and compare it to the Pages App that anyone who has a Facebook page can download and use.

    I found out about Facebook Mentions from a banner ad that was at the top of my Facebook account earlier this week…

  3. "Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
    Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
    “I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
    “And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
    “Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
    “And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”"

    Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8

    My guilty pleasure? Sometimes I use goods manufactured by very poor people working in miserable conditions, why you asking?

    My guilty pleasure? My complicity in the capitalist machine, why you asking?

    Apart from that — fuck guilt

"I will never apologize for the United States — I don’t care what the facts are… I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — George H. W. Bush as Vice-president, during a presidential campaign function (2 Aug 1988), commenting on the Navy warship USS Vincennes having shot down Iran Air Flight 655 in a commercial air corridor on July 3, killing 290 civilians, as quoted in “Perspectives”, the quote of the week section of Newsweek (15 August 1988)

    Hallucinatory ‘voices’ shaped by local culture, Stanford anthropologist says

    syzara:

    Read the whole article. It is worth it.

    Have another paragraph:

    In an interview, Luhrmann said that American clinicians “sometimes treat the voices heard by people with psychosis as if they are the uninteresting neurological byproducts of disease which should be ignored. Our work found that people with serious psychotic disorder in different cultures have different voice-hearing experiences. That suggests that the way people pay attention to their voices alters what they hear their voices say. That may have clinical implications.”

    This makes so much sense.

    /go read the whole thing!

  12. "The women were lounging about the houses, some cleaning fish, others pounding rice; but they do not care for work, and the little money which they need for buying clothes they can make by selling mats or jungle fruits."

     -

    some English lady who spent 5 weeks in Malaya in 1879 that Syed Hussein Alatas quotes in The Myth of the Lazy Native. The joke practically writes itself, but Alatas says it for us: “We may ask the author what is meant by work here? Is cleaning fish and pounding rice not work? Work here means wage earning outside the home. Are making mats and selling fruits not work? It is clear that work here means that activitiy introduced by colonial capitalism. If the ladies became coolies or servants of British planters or firm officials, she would then have considered them as working.”

    So when the settler colonials say Indigenous people are lazy, they really mean “they won’t work for us to help us engineer their economy for our benefit”.

    White colonial logic: it’s only “work” if you work for us to destroy your own economy, otherwise you’re “lazy”.

    are Willow Smith,

    Extremely rare television commercial for the original U.S. release of The Shining in the summer of 1980.

    This commercial is notable in that all of the footage used is from alternate takes not used in the finished film.
