paul collins,

I think it’s really cool that Silver and Blond are clearly boyfriends and yet no one makes a big deal about it. Like, they don’t kiss and no one address them as a couple, but there’s no need to, because it’s obvious they are one. And, you know, it’s just a detail in the story. A small part of the narrative. They’re two guys who fight for animal rights and are super badass and also just happen to be together. 

It’s refreshing to see queer characters depicted with such nonchalance and as a normal, everyday thing.

Okja (2017)

From visionary Director Bong Joon Ho, this grand global adventure follows a friendship too big to ignore. Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja. Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija’s horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.

Famous musicians talk about Queen and Freddie Mercury.

So many older white Trump voters/coal miners on medicaid have just been saved from themselves. One suspects it might be better than they deserve.

I’m glad it didn’t pass, of course.

But you’d think this would set off alarm bells for these people…but know it probably won’t. 

They’ll still vote for him again in 2020.

Watching “Okja (옥자)” and K, played by Steven Yeun, does some hilarious translating!

As someone who studies Korean, and is a vegetarian going on 8 years, I encourage all of my followers to watch it! Plus, it has received a lot of awards and was released through Netflix, so you definitely know it’s worth the watch.
