fun tonys fact for tonight! expect some surprising or interesting winners because for this season, the american theatre wing changed how the tonys are voted! now, instead of every voter voting in every category, voters only vote on categories in their field. light designers won’t vote for best set design, actors won’t vote for best costume design, choreographers won’t vote on best book of a musical, etc. it might shake things up!!
Okja, as a movie, openly admits no form of commercal food consumption is ethical through Silver, not even agriculture. the message of Okja is not that the consumption of animals is unethical, it’s that the mass production of food through capitalism is unethical. the film itself says our heroine’s favorite food is chicken soup. one of the first actions we see the young heroine take is to take a grown fish, and release the minnow back, hammering home the idea that this is sustainable, and the sustainable consumption of animals is ethical, in this film’s view. so to simply slap your own ideals onto this film is not only inaccurate, it’s a injustice to the filmmaker. okja isn’t about the righteousness of veganism, it’s about the horrors of capitalism and how it compares to sustainable farming
I’m slightly bitter and going to make a slightly bitter post: anybody who wants to come specifically onto my blog/posts and tell me why Keith/Lance/Allura should be Black Paladin needs to first explain to me in detail:
Why Shiro is a bad Black Paladin that needs to be replaced in the first place (and no, “he’s somehow totally never going to come back even though him disappearing under mysterious circumstances is the cheapest and most anticlimatic way to kill off a main character and all these other dang reasons they wouldn’t” is not an answer)
Why bolstering your fave is important enough that you want a traumatized guy to get the message that he was right, he really isn’t worthy of leading, Sendak was right saying he’s unworthy of being a paladin, and that the people he cares about don’t need him
Why bolstering your fave is more important than the Black Lion, as a traumatized entity, being able to connect and relate to another party who has experiences the closest to her trauma
cause like. everything about the other paladins aside I see so many theories of Black Paladin whoever and I understand if it’s just a temp thing until they find Shiro but people act like it’s a permanent arrangement, golly, who possibly could be worthy of the Black Lion
