Happy freedom season for America

We got:

  • A literal fucking empire, let’s elaborate
  • 25% of the world’s prisoners, but only 5% of the world’s population, many of whom are in for nonviolent offenses and paid cents on the hour for their labor
  • Some prisoners getting paid nothing at all for their labor, in instances of literal slavery
  • Drones bombing people halfway around the world on a routine basis
  • An occupation in Afghanistan that’s been going on since fucking 2001
  • An airport security routine that routinely violates privacy rights and is basically authoritarian theatre
  • Poor people paying about 20% in taxes, with real wages unchanged since the 19 fucking 70s, while most of the real income gains have gone to the 1% richest people in our society
  • Income inequality the worst it’s been since the Great Depression
  • Minorities, mentally ill, and/or homeless people getting brutalized and shot routinely by the police
  • No left-wing party worth speaking of, just diet right, classic right, and zero-calorie right (now with 3.27% of the popular vote)
  • About half our food being wasted while people starve
  • The NRA advertising authoritarian, us vs. them rhetoric straight out of old-timey propaganda films
  • A president who is on the record as having endorsed and committed sexual assault, has committed fraud, and isn’t even good at the thing he was supposed to be good at
  • His opponent during the election, who used literal slave labor and has endorsed bombing people halfway around the world on a routine basis, as detailed above
  • Gerrymandering so thick that we’ve got states that aren’t even classified as democracies anymore
  • A mainstream media that acts, unconditionally, as a willing accomplice to the state
  • Our politicians trying to slash programs and agencies whose aims a majority of our population like and want
  • People having to call and beg our politicians to not cut the things that we like and want
  • Our politicians doing fuck nothing that’s any good for anyone except their corporate owners, even though a single party controls the whole government right now
  • A holiday full of drinking and fireworks so we can forget about the fact that we live in a dystopia

I had the immense pleasure of commissioning @merwild to draw my hot mess of an Inquisitor, and am so, so pleased with the result. I mean look at this beautiful thing here! If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend you take it; Coco is professional, super skilled (clearly), and fast.

The Get Down cast’s new projects

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Cadillac) – Abdul-Mateen co-stars in Baywatch, which dives into theaters this weekend, and he’ll share the screen with Zac Efron once again in the Hugh Jackman musical The Greatest Showman, which swings into theaters this December. Perhaps most significantly, the actor has been cast as Black Manta in James Wan’s Aquaman, which washes ashore on Dec. 21, 2018.

Shameik Moore (Shaolin Fantastic) – He’s going to be playing Miles Morales in Sony’s animated Spider-Man movie, which comes out on Dec. 14, 2018.

Justice Smith (Ezekiel ‘Books’ Figuero) – Books booked a role alongside Chris Pratt in the Jurassic World sequel, which is slated to take a big bite out of the box office on June 22, 2018.

Mamoudou Athie (Grandmaster Flash) – He co-stars in the Sundance sensation Patti Cake$, which will make some noise August 18. He also has roles in Brie Larson’s directorial debut Unicorn Store and the upcoming Kristen Stewart thriller Underwater.

Giancarlo Esposito (Pastor Ramon Cruz) – You’ll see him next month among the ensemble of Netflix’s original movie Okja, which received mostly positive reviews out of Cannes. He also has a supporting role in the new Maze Runner movie starring Dylan O’Brien.

Yolanda Ross (Ms. Green) – She pops up all too briefly in Ana Lily Amirpour’s The Bad Batch, which features Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey, and she’s currently filming Rick Famuyiwa’s Showtime series The Chi.

Shyrley Rodriguez (Regina) – You’ll see her alongside John Boyega in Pacific Rim: Uprising.

Zabryna Guevara (Mrs. Cruz) – She has a role in the Sundance hit The Incredible Jessica Jones starring Jessica Williams.

Daveed Diggs (Adult Books) – He co-stars with Jacob Tremblay and Julia Roberts in Lionsgate’s adaptation of the YA novel Wonder, and he also has a role alongside Andy Samberg and Orlando Bloom in the HBO comedy Tour de Pharmacy. Diggs also lends his voice to the animated movie Ferdinand, and he just booked the lead role in the Snowpiercer TV series.

Skylan Brooks (Ra-Ra Kipling) – Brooks has a role in the award-winning Sundance drama Crown Heights starring Lakeith Stanfield, and he’s currently filming the sci-fi thriller The Darkest Minds with Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore and Gwendoline Christie.
