Twenty years ago, two gunmen claimed the lives of 13 victims and marked the beginning of an era in which the United States has repeatedly been forced to reckon with the threat of school shootings.

Mueller Report, Vol II

I want to read Volume II of the Mueller Report, not Volume I. I can't find any link to Volume II.

The pdf is a mess to get through on a small screen and does not contain Vol II and yet I'm seeing a lot of reporting referring to it. Vol II has all the obstruction narratives.

Anyone have a direct link to Volume II? Thank you.

Orbis: The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World. Works best with Chrome or Safari browsers. Calculate how long, and how expensive, any journey is throughout the Roman Empire. You can change such factors as season and mode of travel.

(*But I once spent days trying to calculate some characters' travel time for an ancient world AU. I calculated that journey in fifteen seconds flat with this tool.*)

i remain HIGHLY upset and angry about the magicians but also, like...i was in comics fandom, i watched doctor who, i know from getting fucked around by shitty creators. this is probably the worst instance yet, but still, it was good training. i will die angry but what else is new.

(if anyone reading this cared about the magicians and would like a show where queer people 1.) are numerous 2.) get happy endings (after much tribulation), and also it's an extraordinarily good show, i highly recommend black sails, The Only Show That Has Never Betrayed Me. it doesn't do the extremely revolutionary thing i thought the magicians was gonna do but on its own terms, it's perfect. hmu for content warnings for s1 if you want.) (legends of tomorrow has also never betrayed me but it is EXTREMELY different tonally and doesn't fill the same void.)

anyway i handle these things by putting on more lipstick. i have a plan to wear wacky lipstick colors to class the last week of school, for my own amusement and hopefully the students', so i'm stocking up on blues, greens, silver, and particularly ludicrous pinks.

DC Editor Alex Antone called and said, “You do realize, Rose is a teenager.” Well, no, I hadn’t. I’m not sure Rose has ever been drawn as a teenager. I assumed she was early to mid-20’s, which would make her half-brothers mid to late 20’s. With due respect to previous writers, it really bothered me that a person so young could already be a hardened killer (I have similar concerns about the very popular Damian Wayne). In terms of character dynamics, I’m not sure such persons can ever be fully redeemed, and I’m really uncomfortable with the general handwave most superheroes seem to be giving teen (and even pre-teen) killers, most especially given our nation’s climate of violence.

I am not suggesting every super-hero has to be pure or angelic. What I mean is somebody, somewhere on some page should express some concern for the emotional state and overall wellbeing of these very young people who have taken a life before graduating high school. What bothers me is that none of the other DCU characters seem to bat an eye, chalking killing up as perhaps juvenile delinquency.

Female buddy movies

Can I have a female buddy movie that isn't about being as crass as male buddy movies?

I'm not interested in drugs, smoking, casual sex, or engaging in crime sprees and other irresponsible behaviors. I mean, yay! for the women who are getting what they want now that these films are happening, but I'd like something different.

Anyone got any recs?

Finally watched the entirety of Star Trek: Discovery's second season. All I can say is that it's amazing how one clear through line and vision can turn a series around.

The first season felt very scattered. Lots of baits and switches, lots of sudden storyline changes for no real good reason, It felt like the show runners were fighting for competing visions for the series in real time during production.

Season 2, though, has a good straight through-line and great characters with a few swerves that make sense in the story. To the point that while I tolerated Season 1 (to the point, I was gonna skip Season 2), I genuinely enjoyed Season 2.

Two real standouts were Michelle Yeoh as Georgiou and Anson Mount as Pike. These two really steal the show. Between Georgious earnest catty-ness and Pike as the Conssumate Starfleet Captain, the show really gains a necessary foundation for the rest of the crew revolve around. Watching Georgiou's turning to the good guys without actually BECOMING a good guy was beautiful. As was Pike's revelation that he would soon be horrifyingly wounded (and the fact that it weighs heavily on him for episodes afterwards is a really nice touch).

My only real problems was Spock's attitude to his sister (yes, there are also continuity problems to contend with, but I've completely bought into the Multiverse theory and this is not the TOS universe). I realize they were making him downright angry at his sister for things she said in their youth so there's a real emotional resolution at the end, but Spock doesn't (1) come across at someone who holds a grudge and (2) this just isn't Spock like at all.

I'm actually really looking forward to season 3. Where I was looking forward to Season 2 just to see how the writers would get out of their cliffhanger.

Also...REALLY looking forward to the Georgiou spin off. :)
