Toni: I can’t believe you’re making me torture and mind rape the Winchesters and murder all the American hunters wow so harsh but I’ll do it

British MOL: No I just want you to try and work out an agreement

Toni: Here I go, just following orders. Wow so harsh

British MOL: No I just need you to-

Toni: Oh damn now you’re telling me to kill their mom too. Gee wiz. Wow.

British MOL: :|

it’s international women’s day, and i’m not that big on hashtags (despite sporadic participation), but i’m all about opportunities to share asian-american and [east] asian books-in-translation (i admit/acknowledge that my geographic focus is narrow).  here are ten books by international women i love.

  1. banana yoshimoto, lizard (washington square press, 1995)
  2. marilynne robinson, lila (FSG, 2014)
  3. krys lee, drifting house (viking, 2012)
  4. ruth ozeki, a tale for the time being (penguin, 2013)
  5. mary shelly, frankenstein (penguin clothbound classics, 2013)
  6. han kang, human acts (portobello books, 2016)
  7. helen macdonald, h is for hawk (grove press, 2015)
  8. charlotte brontë, jane eyre (penguin clothbound classics, 2009)
  9. jang eun-jin, no one writes back (dalkey archive press, 2013)
  10. shin kyung-sook, i’ll be right there (other press, 2014)

also, one of my favorite book quotes comes from yoshimoto’s “helix,” a story which can be found in her collection, lizard:

“even when i have crushes on other men, i always see you in the curve of their eyebrows.”  (64)

happy international reading!

News type announcements! *puts on announcer hat*

I Ship It premieres tomorrow, Thursday, October 16th at 9am ET/6am PT on youtube.com/yulinisworking! I’m excited about it like Christmas. Probably won’t sleep tonight. Just kidding if you’re my mom reading this. Watch our trailer here.

Tomorrow, Thursday 10/16 at 12pm PT/3pm ET, I’ll be hosting a livestream Q&A hangout with Mary Kate Wiles and Sean Persaud, who play Zoe and Charlie in I Ship It. Feel free to leave us questions about the short film in advance under the #i ship it film tag on Tumblr or #ishipitfilm on Twitter. We’ll answer as many as we can on air, though spoiler warnings will apply so I’d recommend watching the film before you watch the livestream! 

For those of you in the Toronto area, you’ll also have two chances this week to see I Ship It play in a theater at Buffer Festival! Tickets are $15 per screening. If any of you are planning on going pretty please let me know so I can experience it by proxy! Our screening times:

That’s everything! I’m so excited and nervous I could throw up! But I probably hopefully won’t. 

Much love,

“George Banks and all he stands for will be saved. Maybe not in life, but in imagination. Because that’s what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination. We instill hope again and again and again.”

● I figured the beginning was a dream, Sammy wasn’t injured and he was in bed with his torturer

● I love Mary Winchester

● Rowena, I am so aggravated that she’s Lucifer’s prisoner

● Sam’s reaction to Dean and Mary showing up 😢

● Sam not appearing injured and no one asking if he was ok 😒

● Sam’s talk with Mary at the end 😭
