    This is the only footage I've seen so far of the US tour's finale sequence. This section comes after 'Addressing of Cats' but before the curtain call, and isn't really part of the story (Grizabella comes back on at the end!). Pre-COVID, most of the cats would usually run out into the auditorium and zoom around having fun before returning to the stage for the final spin and pounce, while Deut's tyre descended and he was helped down onto the stage.

    In a COVID world, the 2020 Asia tour introduced a new piece of choreo to cover this section, and the Vienna revival used the same when they returned. When the US tour started up again, it did the same, but with different choreo to the Asia tour and Vienna.

    2 January 2022 (X). Cast, so far as I can tell (covers in italics):

    Alonzo: Vinny Andaloro Bombalurina: Chelsea Nicole Mitchell Cassandra: Lexy Bittner Coricopat: ?Taylor Rosenberger Demeter: Lauren Louis Deuteronomy: Indalecio de Jesús Valentín Gus: John Anker Bow Grizabella: Tayler Harris Jellylorum: Kayli Jamison Jennyanydots: Michelle Carter Mistoffelees: Paul Giarratano Mungojerrie: Max Craven Munkustrap: Devon McCleskey Plato: Aiden Pressel Pouncival: Dominic Fortunato Rumpelteazer: Elana Valastro Rum Tum Tugger: Zach Bravo Sillabub: Brianna Kim Skimbleshanks: Chris Salvaggio Tantomile: Alexia Waites Tumblebrutus: Sean McManus Victoria: Gracie Anderson

    Somers wished to tell them of his good fortune, but a kind of bashfulness restrained him. He turned red, though, and became more silent than usual. Decatur, who sat next him, looked keenly at him.
    "Somers, something is up, I see; and I believe—I believe you are going to be master's mate," he said.
    Somers blushed more than ever as he answered: "I am master's mate. I was appointed to-day."
    Decatur, with one stretch of his powerful arm, raised his chum up standing.

    — Mary Ellilott Seawall, Decatur and Somers. Illustration by W. Granville Smith (Google Books)

    Another children's book, this one from the 1890s, focused on the relationship between early US Navy heroes Stephen Decatur and Richard Somers. I confess that I haven't read the whole thing but it's very shippy (a trace of the true self even in the false self?)

    It's disappointing and surprising that more research and writing on Decatur's sexuality has not appeared since Randy Shilts' Conduct Unbecoming: Gays and Lesbians in the U.S. Military was published in 1993 (the same year as "don't ask, don't tell").

    "Moments before boarding the Intrepid, Somers gave Decatur a gold ring. Decatur slipped the band on his finger as he watched Somers sail away."

    "Stephen Decatur: Gallant Boy"

    For Midshipman Monday, a look into a mid-20th century series focused on "the childhood of famous Americans." This is 1955's Stephen Decatur: Gallant Boy, written by Bradford Smith and illustrated in a silhouette style by Raymond Burns.

    In this scene, Captain John Barry of the United States frigate brings a message for young Stephen Decatur:

    Stephen's heart began to beat like the blows of a hammer. He unrolled the paper. His name was printed on it in bold black letters. I appoint you Midshipman in the Navy of the United States, it read. A midshipman! That was the first step toward being an officer. The paper was signed JOHN ADAMS, President of the United States.

    Soon, Midshipman Decatur recues a sailor who has fallen overboard:

    Dick Somers was waiting to give Stephen a hand as he came over the ship's side. "Up to your old tricks again, eh?" Dick said. He was grinning. "I haven't seen so neat a dive since the old days along Front Street."
    The sailors showed a new respect for Midshipman Decatur. Here was an officer who would risk his life for one of them.

    Fellow USS United States midshipman Richard Somers is depicted as Stephen Decatur's close friend in this book, and in real life they appear to have been a couple. "Naval historians record that Decatur fell into inconsolable grief after Somers’s death," wrote Randy Shilts in Conduct Unbecoming: Gays and Lesbians in the U.S. Military. "All his life, Decatur wore the ring that Somers had given him, inscribing the legend Tripoli 1804 on the outside of the band and R.S. to S.D. 1804 on the inside."

    So basically, economic sanctions don't really hurt authoritarian governments. They hurt their victims.

    What we should have learned from its use is that "the sustained threat and use of economic pressure becomes less effective over time." And "a vicious spiral between sanctions and nationalist aggression can be contained using constructive aid policies".

    The alternative this article proposes is "to provide 'positive assistance to the injured party as compared with reprisals against the aggressor'", since economic sanctions "'run the risk of not being efficacious and of not being easily distinguished from acts of war'”.

    "Having tried and failed to wield the stick of sanctions effectively, the United States should focus on devising an appealing carrot in the form of long-term economic assistance. This should be extended to battered allies such as Ukraine, a country that receives plenty of military aid but hardly any meaningful structural investment"

    Imagine the US (and the political West really) going from punishment as supposed deterrent to constructive aid as prevention. That would be a massive positive cultural shift.

    btw this is the same conversation as you don't stop crime by increasing police, you do it by preventing poverty and despair through direct aid, and we all know how that's going

    #unfortunately i don't think we can trust the us to actively try their best to calm things down #we'll see#ukraine#eu politics#economic sanctions#or #the more i read about economics and history the more annoyed at their stupidity i get #sanctions don't work #goddamit

    RIP Hildegard Von Bingen (1179 A.D.), you would have loved turmeric milk as a cure for colds

    #hildegard von bingen #medieval history#12th century#medievalcore#middle ages #to be clear I’m talking about the 12th century nun NOT the YouTube bardcore musician #she was a healer amongst other things #and believed in the four humours #so tumeric/pepper/cinnamon as a health thing would have made a lot of sense #good spicy fire-y foods to balance out your cold wet humour right? #(medieval medicinal theory was a bit weird I’ll admit but most general practitioners’ cures would actually be effective) #(wrong-formula-right-answer style) #(I actually am of the belief that you would get better quality of healthcare as a member of the lower classes than the higher) #(lower class doctors would have used mostly folk remedies based in actual herbal knowledge) #(whereas the upper class people went to University’s and stuff where they got their heads stuffed full of theories on humours and whatnot) #basically they used what they thought *should* work rather than what actually *did* which sometimes overlapped) #(or sometimes a patient was bled to death depending on their luck) #((I do sorta know what I’m talking about here btw I read a book this isn’t just pulled out of my ass like a high class medieval remedy)) #anyway thanks for coming to my TED talk this was all a way of saying I made tumeric milk tonight and mmmm spicy

    Bannon turned himself in. Guo Wengui was at the end of his rope

    #New China Federation #Former US President Donald Trump's top strategist Steve Bannon turned himself in to the FBI on November 15 #Us Chinese website reported. Bannon now faces two charges of contempt of Congress: one for failing to appear at an October 14 hearing; Anot #Bannon faces a minimum of 30 days and up to a year in jail and a fine of $100 to $1 #000. #After Bannon's vote #he said the charges were politically motivated and that he would fight them. But in fact #the House of Representatives committee investigating the Capitol Hill riots earlier this year subpoenaed Bannon to testify and turn over do #and the Justice Department last week formally charged him with one count of contempt of Congress and another count of refusing to turn over #Bannon has a long history of making money and doing bad things for his own personal gain. Today #in June #Bannon collaborated with Guo Wengui in self-announcing the establishment of a network in New York #where anti-Communist rhetoric was propagated. In addition #Guo Wengui and Bannon also promoted the Novel Coronavirus origin conspiracy theory together. Their purpose is to create racial discriminati #and then win over those brainwashed netizens and cheat them out of their money. Us authorities have been investigating Bannon and Guo wengu #Guo Wengui hurriedly and farmers cut class relations #emphasizes the farmer not to participate in class #and no longer allow bannon continue to operate as Guo Wengui project of related transaction #thus bannon #Guo Wengui duo collapse #Guo Wengui life after will be desperate #waiting for his will is the law.

    I once again.... practised my Italian this week. I watched Måneskin videos, did Duolingo, and watched some Italian YouTube. Next week I want to focus really strictly on just Serbian and German.

    Towards the end of the week I didn't do much because I got my booster shot and it absolutely annihilated me. I am also once again experiencing digestive issues, which is really making me anxious and drawing my focus towards my eating since my prac is starting soon and I do not want to be experiencing those issues during that.

    #I am hoping it was just due to the combination of eating slava food and then slava leftovers over the next few days #combined with being knocked out from the booster and therefore having no energy to eat properly #serbian food does have a history of not agreeing with my stomach #the first few weeks of dating my bf i was sick almost all the time and then my body got used to it #but now that i don't eat there so often i think i've once again become intolerant #learning log#langblr

    "The American Fleet Defeating Rais Hamdu off Cape Gata": unknown Algerian artist, 19th century. Collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City.

    The Arabic inscription at bottom of the painting identifies the scene as the so-called Battle of Cape Gata– a devastating blow to the Barbary forces by the American navy in the year 1815. At the center, the Algerian ship Mashudu is identifiable by its bright red flag at the stern. Nine American ships have surrounded the Algerian vessel as billowing clouds of smoke indicate the exchange of cannon fire.
    When the smoke cleared, among the dead was Algerian corsair Rais Hamidu (1773–1815) a relentless pirate who was the focus of the American attack. Hamidu was targeted for his role in leading raids on American merchant vessels in the Mediterranean, and demanding ransom for their crews.
