The Enclave

Inhuman of The Day

June 21st - Lincoln 

Lincoln Campbell.  An Inhuman from the Marvel Cinematic Universe who appeared on the television show, Marvel’s Agents of Shield. 

 Lincoln had worked through medical school and suffered great difficulties with alcoholism.  He was identified as an Inhuman and recruited to the Inhuman sanctuary known as Afterlife.  There he was chosen as worthy of being exposed to Terrigenesis.  This endowed Lincoln with the ability to control ambient electrical fields.  He had a hard time controlling this power at first and he accidentally caused a large electrical fire.  As he further honed his skills, however, Lincoln learned to use his powers in a more subtle, less destructive fashion, such as levitating objects or rendering a foe temporarily unconscious.  

Lincoln was assigned to act as a chaperone to the Shield agent, Skye (Daisy Johnson), after she was brought to Afterlife following her own process of Terrigenesis.  Lincoln and Skye cultivated a close friendship that ultimately grew into a romance.  

Later, after relations between The Inhuman enclave and Shield deteriorated into full blown war, Lincoln was tasked with joining the force that invaded the Shield aircraft carrier.  Thanks to Skye’s coaxing, Lincoln ultimately decided to turn against his fellow Inhumans and prevent a large-scale loss of life.   

In the aftermath of the this conflict, Lincoln attempted to start a new peaceful life, but was forced to go into hiding when he was pursued by a murderous Inhuman named Lash and the ATCU.  He eventually joined Shield in its efforts to defeat the despotic Inhuman known as Hive.  So to save Daisy’s life and put an end to Hive’s threat, Lincoln sacrificed his life by piloting a Quintet carrying him and Hive into the upper orbit where it exploded.

Lincoln was portrayed by actor, Luke Mitchell.

While we gear up and prepare for the first anniversary, It’s really important to understand some context of the Pulse massacre.

It happened on Latin night in Orlando. One of, if not the largest growing Puerto Rican enclaves outside of the archipelago of Puerto Rico. The night was specifically welcoming of latinx and other communities of color and these specific facts must not be forgotten.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO. 2012-2013. Produced in North and South Kivu. Film stills from The Enclave by Richard Mosse. [6/13]

The Irish photographer filmed strange footage of the country using a special surveillance film once used by the military. Picking up invisible infra-red rays given off by plant life, the film makes any greenery show up in ‘bubblegum’ pink, meaning guerilla soldiers could be spotted among the leaves.

Civil war has been happening in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo for many years. Since 1998, the nation has seen 5.4 million war-related deaths.

hey wait but
merle said he left his family/the enclave because “they weren’t doing enough to contribute to the good of mankind.” he said they were too exclusive and only in it for themselves (”i’m going to heaven, tough luck for you!”)
the very next episode, what does merle do?
he teaches the people of fungston about pan and gives them faith and hope so that, even if they do get devoured by the hunger in a year, they “have some hope for the time they’re here.” and then he stays with them when the hunger arrives so they don’t feel alone or abandoned. anyway i love merle

Ode To The Street Cat: ‘Kedi’ Follows Istanbul’s Famous Felines

In the new Turkish documentary Kedi, which is rolling out around the country, filmmaker Ceyda Torun offers a new look at the city of Istanbul by focusing on its vast number of street cats. Critic John Powers says:

Kedi’s stars, of course, are cats, and the film glides around Istanbul’s back alleys, boho enclaves and rat-infested piers to show us the range of these characters.

These include Sari, a yellow-and-white tabby who’s all about food — stealing it from shops, begging for it at restaurants, carrying it back to her kittens. There’s Gamsiz, a carefree black-and-white shorthair who climbs trees and awnings so that he can demand admission into second-story apartment windows. And there’s the mask-faced little demon fondly known as the Neighborhood Psychopath who controls her turf with the prickly explosiveness of a feline Tony Soprano.

Torun also shows us the people who love and indulge them, from the mechanic who gets blissed out brushing a longhair’s fat belly to the boatman who became a cat fan when one of them led him to a wallet full of money.”
