“Musica Humana” by Ilya Kaminsky
watched game night and it was so funnn, the scene where they throw the egg was so entertaining i really liked it like i was actually laughing the whole scene it was epic!!!
The soft sounds of hollow steps reverberated throughout the pillared corridors of the Temple. They echoed and rang with the cacophonous bells which surrounded Inue, and they created a disorienting shattering song.
Inue was genuinely unsure as to how long she had been walking. In following that foolish bandit, they had found themselves deep within forbidden grounds - somewhere they really had no business being.
Still, she felt a duty to both administer justice against this rube, and to protect them from the potentially dangerous entities which lie in wait within the temple’s midsts.
Somehow though, she couldn’t escape the feeling that she was… lost. She had no clue as to where exactly she should go, and in spite of the fact that the hallway had largely been straight, she still felt like she was going in circles.
Her wandering misadventures were reflected in another pair of eyes - one which carried much less patience for the idle machinations of foolish zealots.
She felt a cold shiver run down her spine…
The Farewell is a 2019 film written and directed by Lulu Wang. It follows Billi, a Chinese-American woman who came to the United States with her parents when she was 6, as she goes on a trip back to China, to attend the wedding of her cousin. The real reason for that trip is for the family to gather around Nai Nai, Billi’s paternal grandmother, who has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer — but the whole family is hiding the diagnosis from her. During the film, Billi struggles with keeping the secret as she watches her grandmother get worse and disagrees with her relatives’ decision to keep silent.
It resonated with me. My paternal grandmother is dying. I went to see her the other day in the hospital; she’s all but gone already. A few months ago she was still a pain in the ass, always criticising everything, always commenting on everything, being unbearable after a couple of minutes. Now she’s pumped full of drugs, thin, energy-less, dozing of every few seconds. She barely recognised me. They choke her full of painkillers, to make her comfortable, but in the lines on her face, in the way her lips thin, in the manner she sometimes holds her breath and then releases it sharply, you can tell she’s in pain. Her mind is muddled and she’s still in pain. She thinks she’s coming back, but I don’t believe she can. She’s already gone, but she hasn’t caught up to it yet. She doesn’t quite know it.
But she is quite aware that she is sick; and she knows that cancer is peeling the skin from her arms. She decided for herself what treatment she preferred; she was in control of her health decision as long as it was physically possible for her to be. This sort of agency over her life is completely and unapologetically denied to Nai Nai, under the cover of cultural tradition. While I do understand the appeal of a blissful, unconcerned end of life, it still reeks of control of a woman’s body and decision.

Watching Wall by Jabea Mbiseh
“Most stress-inducing skaters to watch (they’re still great)-Yuzuru, Mikhail, Rika (4s sis cmonn), and Alexandra.”
I’m glad that Hamefura is taking a firm stance when it comes to the girls’ attraction to Katarina Claes. Every time I was being pessimistic and thinking it was just queerbaiting/overly friendly friendship, the anime usually threw something that clarified “no no it’s not only friendship, it’s total smexy romantic attraction too!”.
Five Easy Pieces, 1970
director: Bob Rafelson
Out of all the main characters in Hamefura Keith definitely has the best story of being befriended by Catarina. Probably something along the lines of: “She chopped through my door with an axe and we have been siblings ever since”.
(( nothing is funnier to me than the idea of rung just being in every screenshot of the series in the background, smiling like a omnipresent doofus
What does that even mean?! XD
Can’t believe that I hadn’t seen this movie until last night. Still can’t get over how deliriously gleeful this whole sequence was.
