The Expanse: Interesting comments from Cara Gee (Drummer) on diversity

Cara Gee is a Canadian actress of Ojibwe descent.  She currently plays Drummer, head of security at Tycho Station and Fred Johnson’s second in command on SyFy’s series “The Expanse” - which is itself an adaptation of the amazing James S.A.  If you’re not watching it/reading it - you are missing out big time.  It is an amazing series, whether in book or television form.

Last night, there was a post-show podcast on which Cara Gee was a guest star.

Question: We were talking earlier about the representation on the show, particularly on the female cast - how it’s a very diverse group of women.  Is that something you’re particularly proud of about the show?

Cara Gee: Yes!  Yes!  It’s the future.  It’s so brilliant.  You know, I have auditioned for shows in the past and there was one in particular where I got very close on a role and I didn’t get it and the note that my agent got was that they ‘already had a half-Asian person on the show’ and so I didn’t get the part … and what the actual fuck?  Of course there were so many white people on the show … and of course that didn’t seem to be a problem.  There is this idea that we have to have “one of each and only one and they stand in for all” … That’s bullshit … that doesn’t happen on [The Expanse] and I’m so proud to be a part of that.   It’s amazing.

 this is so not what you asked for but here it is and I’m sorry


You smiled as you opened the door. The older woman was already sitting straight in her hospital bed with a stern look on her face, visibly annoyed that you had kept her waiting for a few minutes longer today. You were her nurse and you visited her every afternoon before going home.

“You are late again, young lady,” she schooled with a forefinger up and pointing in your direction.

“That’s because I went to buy you your favourite raspberry jello and that sports newspaper that you insist on reading every day, Mrs Griezmann,” you explained with a smile as you laid the things in front of her.

She had told you that her son is a footballer and that’s why she was always on the sports pages of any magazine or newspaper that you brought to her. You found it sweet how she was closely following the career of her son but you couldn’t help but wonder why even bother. If he loved her as much as she said he did why hasn’t he visited her, not even once.

…she was always better at talking than he was, and when they were little they shared that like they shared food, or drawings, or siblings. Chaz would feel and Raffy would speak and between them they would make a person. (x)

NT’S HALLOWEEN COUNTDOWN (featuring my favourite spooky fics): 7/10

The Ghost and Mr Baggins by @bilboo

“’Apologies,’ Thorin tells him, but really wants to say, I wish you knew. I wish you were able to tell I’m there. I am as much a part of this house as that bench you’re sitting on, and that table you’re mopping up.
Don’t forget that.
Don’t forget me.“

There are reasons why this is not a studyblr

1) I still don’t really understand the point of studyblrs (sorry?). 

You need to study, not go on the internet and look at pictures of other people’s study habitats. What is study “inspiration”? I was never inspired to study. I just did it because it was a means to an end. 

2) What worked for me might not work for you because people learn differently.

3) I didn’t have an adorable ultra-organized pastel color-coded study aesthetic. I just read textbooks and scribbled notes and then I reviewed those notes. 

Sometimes I got fancy with charts or graphs or annotated pictures or flash cards. But there was no rhyme or reason to it. And it worked for me…ish.

4) I was and still am a terrible studier.

 I like to learn but I hate studying. I don’t want to think about studying anymore. I finished my homework so don’t ask me to do yours. I don’t want to re-live my years of studying. It stresses me out. 

5) There is no method to the madness that is Wayfaring. 

I Wrote This at 3 A.M.

It’s unbelievable to me that people still don’t like Mobile Orchestra. I mean, I wasn’t exactly thunderstruck when I first heard it, but I was on the verge of loving it, and eventually, I found love.

And you know, at that meet and greet, there were all these people who were going up to Adam and saying things like “I can’t live without you!” and “You’re my everything” and when Adam was all shy on stage, people were chanting “You’re not alone!” and I bet you, on their drive back home, those people were listening to the album and loving it. Oh, and to all those people who keep saying this is Adam’s last album? This isn’t the end, he made that super clear. Sure, at times on the tour, he seemed shy, a little overwhelmed and vulnerable like a bird with a broken wing, but Adam loves what he does and loves the fans.

I can’t wait to see where this goes next. (Hopefully he doesn’t disappear to Tokyo for another year though!)

Okay kids, so I need a tiny bit of help. WAIT DON’T STOP READING YET IT’S NOT MONEY I NEED. Alrighty, okay, so here’s the deal. As some of you may be aware, I have been working with a career counselor for the past while, and I’m at the point where I need to interview people. Trouble is, I can’t fucking find them, and I’m tired of pushing my appointment back repeatedly. The tips I was given require having, like, an abundance of IRL friends, which I do not have. HOWEVER. I do have an abundance of internet friends, so I figured I may have a better chance here, even if it’s not what she had in mind

If you, or someone you know well who might be willing to talk to me, works or recently has worked in one of the following professions, or something decently related to them:

  • Chemist
  • Pharmacologist (not a pharmacist, important difference)
  • Computer programmer
  • Web developer

And are willing to have a little chat about it with me so you can answer a few questions, I would REALLY appreciate it if you could shoot me a message. It won’t take long, and we can communicate via tumblr, email, skype, basically whatever you want. I’m easy

Really, this would be incredibly helpful for me, and you get to ramble on about yourself for as long as you want. I’ve been putting the last 5 weeks or so of my life into trying to find people for this, and I’ve failed at every turn, so I’m asking you guys as a last ditch effort. Really, it would help me out a lot

I don’t really have anything to pay you back with, but maybe I could attempt to write you a drabble or buy you a pin or a keychain or promo you or something? I know I’m not really offering much, but getting this done would drop my stress level by like 90% and you would have my eternal love and gratitude <3
