"My girlfriend is Spanish. She speaks English without an accent so you’d never know if she was foreign but all the English idioms she doesn’t quite get…she says ‘Oh really? Put your money in your mouth.’ There’s another one: ‘Okay look: I’m gonna be honest with you. I’m gonna put all my cars on the table.’ No, don’t put any cars on the table. Or one time we were at dinner and it was ‘Well if I had a nipple for every time I heard that.’" — Nathan Fillion on Christina Ochoa

The Newsroom Rewatch: 1x07 - 5/1

"Good evening. From New York City, I’m Will McAvoy. ACN is now able to report and confirm that for the first time in almost three decades, the world has no reason to fear Osama Bin Laden. In just a moment, in a live address to the nation, the President will announce that in a coordinated operation under the cover of darkness, U.S. Special Forces tonight killed the leader of Al-Qaeda and the mastermind behind the deadly attack of September 11, 2001. It’s been nine years, seven months, and 20 days since America’s most wanted criminal took from us 2,977 American sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, friends, and colleagues. We were transformed that morning into a different nation - more fearful and so of course, more hostile. And while nothing, not even this victory our country has waited for for such a long time can bring back the souls lost on that terrible morning in New York City, in Virginia, a field in Pennsylvania, and all across America and the world, let tonight serve as a welcome reminder that throughout our history, America’s darkest days have always been followed by its finest hours. Here now from the East Room of the White House, the President of the United States…"

The archetype of the witch is long overdue for celebration. Daughters, mothers, queens, virgins, wives, et al. derive meaning from their relation to another person. Witches, on the other hand, have power on their own terms. They have agency. They create. They praise. They commune with nature/ Spirit/God/dess/Choose-your-own-semantics, freely, and free of any mediator. But most importantly: they make things happen. The best definition of magic I’ve been able to come up with is “symbolic action with intent" — “action" being the operative word. Witches are midwives to metamorphosis. They are magical women, and they, quite literally, change the world.

It was always Finn’s story. Back in 4x01 when we had no idea what was going on, when Finn disappeared from the show for three full episodes and didn’t return to Lima until even after that, New New Directions was already Finn’s story. When we were complaining that the newbies were slightly-altered or remixed clones of Old New Directions, that was the setup for Finn’s story. Finn was supposed to see himself and his friends in those kids, and help them make better friendships and better choices than his group had, and he was supposed to find himself in the process. […] But with Finn gone, it was nothing deeper than what we saw: It was a show (New York) and another show (Lima) existing side by side and barely interacting with each other. […] And it’s sad. God, it’s sad. Even if you never liked New New Directions, it’s sad to see McKinley go. […] When those kids leave McKinley, it’ll be like the last of him leaving too. [x]

I’ve been struggling with depression and other health issues this semester, and it’s important that I get myself home after graduation in 7 weeks. If you donate $10, I’ll send you a postcard from the road; $25 is a postcard and a FaceTime or phone call from the road; $50 is all of the above plus one of my photographs from the trip (examples on the donation page). Any way that you can help would be greatly appreciated!
