If by patriotism you mean embracing my roots and culture and being proud of my homeland, then yes, I am patriotic. There is nothing wrong with that.
However, if you think patriotism as supremacism, hating other countries and cultures, being against immigration and overall racism and xenophobia, then I won’t fit your definition of patriotism.
I don’t know which definition you meant for sure but considering your anonymity and the tone of your message, I am guessing the latter, which is a form of “patriotism” I despise. However, if you think there is a problem with this blog, it would be much more helpful if you expressed it a bit more clearly.

An ask about Carrie in S5, she goes off her meds to be in that manic state where she sees things so clearly, to find out who's after her. But I came to think about, this just leads nowhere for Carrie, she cant figure out anything and ends up in that crazy mess with avenging angels. She does, however, reach a state where she is honest with herself, her guilt, and she is honest ab Jonas, who is boring and a lousy lay. This, and to scare Jonas away was probably why HL wrote her to be manic in S5 ?
To me, the purpose of the manic episode was primarily as an allusion to 4x12 “I’ve seen you at your worst.” Basically, Quinn had seen her at her worst; Jonas hadn’t. When he did, he didn’t like what he saw and 5x03 basically marked the beginning of the end for those two. The Carrie/Jonas relationship was the proverbial house of cards. I’m working on a longer post about Jonas’ purpose as a character (in response to a previous ask), but basically everything about him was meant as a contrast to Quinn. 5x03 was Exhibit 1.
The other very important reason that you alluded to in your ask was to make Carrie (and the audience) realize that she DOES NOT HAVE SUPERPOWERS. Her mania does not bring her the magical ability to solve mysteries and connect dots. This was a hard lesson for Carrie, and in 5x12 we see her still reeling from the realization of how powerless she really is when she tells Saul (I’m paraphrasing here), “That’s the thing, I have no idea how to stop these guys.”
Compare how similar this is to Quinn’s arc in Season 5. Carrie learns the hard way that she does not have superpowers; Quinn learns the hard way that he is not invincible. In short, their recklessness caught up with both of them in a major way this season.
Looking at the collector numbers of the cards spoiled so far, there seems to be only one card in the set after Wasteland. So far, only non-Modern-legal cards have been spoiled, so I figure that this card can’t be Modern-legal and can’t be on the reserved list. That leaves us with exactly three options:
Wintermoon Mesa and Wizards’ School are terrible cards from terrible sets (Prophecy and Homelands, respectively), while Wirewood Lodge is a staple in Legacy Elves. This leads me to believe that Wirewood Lodge is in Eternal Masters.
Why is it all the creators you see coming out of Scotland are such asshole white men? Grant Morisson, Stephen Moffat, they’re such trash. There’s a lot of good creators kicking about Scotland, but naturally our bratty white men rise to the top. internationally. Thankfully Moffat at least does a lot to divorce himself from his homeland since he seems like a self-hating Scot, so I guess we won’t be known for these mediocre embarrassments, but geez.
The beginning of the latest episode was a bit weird (it was a long recap that made me think I had the wrong episode!), but the rest was just amazing!
It was so heartbreaking to see and hear the Outer Senshi’s experience of the fall of Silver Millenium… it makes their fear of Saturn and their intentions for her so much easier to understand.
How heartbreaking it must have been to see their homeland fall, but with a wide stretch of space between them, unable to leave their posts, forbidden from fighting with their fellow Senshi.
Sailor Saturn’s descent, the finality of Silence Glaive’s strike…
Oh, I also liked the bit of humour regarding Uranus’ ridiculously expensive living arrangements, it lightened the (very heavy) mood a bit! The chibi were cute, but unobtrusive, the episode was mostly serious and sad.
Mistress 9’s transformation was really something! I loved the way she was conveyed even before Saturn’s body and clothes changed, though– just in the darker way Saturn’s eyes are drawn and the more “womanly” voice and smiles, but also sharper smiles– nicely done, without actually changing core elements of her design!
Florida, home to giant, killer pythons, is now welcoming a new friend to the neighborhood: Nile crocodiles. The invasive species native to eastern Africa have appeared
in the Everglades recently, many thousands of miles from it’s
homeland, where they kill some 200 humans a year.
If you’re a frequent moviegoer, you may have a big reason to celebrate! According to U.S. officials, anyone who saw The Perks Of Being A Wallflower in theaters can now get their passport back from the Department of Homeland Security. So exciting!
Hey you guys, so I'm in the Philippines for a little vacation and some family stuff (and poor internet connection). But some folks reached out and asked if I'd do a hangout... I figured, I haven't been here in over four years and who knows when I'll be back, so why not. I have one day I can do it before I leave, this Sunday.
Still figuring out where exactly. I know it's Mother's Day and there's a big election here on Monday. But even if only a handful show up, it will be cool to hang out for a bit.
