Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable.
Have you ever seen something completely baffling but also technically excellent? I can’t believe how well this person edited Jane into Treasure Planet so she and Captain Amelia could fight the bad guy from Osmosis Jones. “Man,” I say to myself, “I could never make this bizarre music video about beloved animated characters becoming ghosts.”

Lewis Carroll goes up to the counter and orders a cup of tea. He goes to sit down at a table, but becomes increasingly agitated. He forces everyone to switch seats so that he can get a seat by the window. Ten minutes later (although the clock on the wall still reads 6pm), he decides he’s had enough of the window and makes everyone move again so that he can sit near the counter. He continues forcing everyone to rotate around the room until he is alone in the Starbucks. The barista is so frustrated that she threatens to behead him if he doesn’t leave. He exits quietly, but not before stealing all of the tarts from the pastry case.
