“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” was a hot mess and super depressing. Lots of talent to make a terrible movie. That part of it reminds me of the even more awful “The Hateful Eight.” The Coen brothers make good and bad movies this was a bad one. “A Serious Man” is the only one I can remember liking less. *1/2 #Netflix
Very clever and smart on Netflix.
I had no idea the immensity of 73 million native peoples in the Americas going down 95% to 3.65 million due to disease in just a few years.
That the native peoples of the Caribbean would pretty much be gone.
And how much of Latin culture comes from the indigenous peoples of the Americas.
Very thought provoking and recommended.
Me and Lanna were watching some documentaries on NBATv tonight about the Dream Team and Magic Johnson announcing he had HIV in 1991.
It’s easy to forget how great the 1992 Dream Team was that did include Magic Johnson after he announced he had HIV.
And it’s great he’s still alive. Becoming a mogul owning movie theaters, franchises, and even now part of the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Dodgers.
I remember being in shock when I found out one of my favorite players had HIV. And I’m happy therapies and outreach are improving.
And of course, I wish we did more for HIV and AIDS in the 80s pre-Magic’s announcement he had HIV.
We decided to have Thanksgiving a day early and had 6 people tonight not 3.
Was great playing Abalone and chess with Isaiah, our friend Melissa’s son.
And having turkey, stuffing, cranberry relish, …
Having celebrations makes life better.
And praying for a better, queerer and more diverse future.
Happy Thanksgiving, and give thanks to everyone in your life.
I started reading Jose Andres’ wonderful book “We Fed an Island” today. In a time of crisis a warm meal is a beautiful thing or even a sandwich.
And with thousands of volunteers his team fed hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans a day in the weeks after Hurricane Maria.
Here is a wonderful TED talk about it:
Let’s give thanks to everyone who helps feed the world.
