Just a place to post what inspires and amuses me, but mainly what amuses me. Sometimes I post art. Sometimes.

Sometimes when I say “I’m okay”, what I really want is for someone to hold my hand, look me in the eyes and say “I know that you’re not okay, here is $1000.00”.

  • ▸me while playing a game: SHIT! FUCKIN SHIT AHHHGHH GOD DAMN IT THIS IS SO STUPID THIS SUCKS ARGHHH LLFUCKING HELL FUCK THIS GAME I HATE IT FFF FUCKIN SHIT GAME
  • ▸me when i finish the game: omg that was so good i loved it so much. this is my new favourite game ever.

And then I saw that Melissa Fumero had been cast as Amy Santiago on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and I felt my guts roll up into my throat and try to escape out of my mouth. Omgomgomgomg that’s it then. There’s no way in hell a major network is gonna cast two Latina actresses in such a tight ensemble show I AM SCREWED.

And then next day my agents called and told me I’d booked it.

I couldn’t believe it. I had been saying to my boyfriend the night before how there was JUST NO WAY. Normally, The Latina is a singular element of the ensemble she is working in. She’s there to provide contrast, or sexuality, or humor. Or she’s there to clean the floors and/or steal your man. There are some serious stereotypes very much alive in film and TV today, and The Latina is one of them.

Here’s the thing though. The world is changing. Slowly but surely, television is changing. The character stereotypes are changing, or being turned inside out by some fantastic writers and actors (I’m looking at you, Orange is the New Black, Scandal, and The Mindy Project). People of color are on TV playing roles that are fleshed out, complex, human. And yes, some of those characters are maids. Some are sexy heartbreakers there to steal your man. Some own BBQ joints, while some are Chiefs of Staff. Some are prisoners, and some are cops. All are real people with hopes, dreams, ambitions, fears, and all the other vast human emotions and desires…

…This is important. Because young women are watching TV, and they are getting messages about who they are in the world, who the world will allow them to be. And in big important steps, television is showing a reflection back to those young women that YOU CAN BE WHATEVER THE HELL YOU DAMN WELL PLEASE, and that two Latinas on one show is NORMAL. I think that’s a win for everybody.

We saw the Three Caballeros parrots! Thanks to your tips I visited the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn and got to watch the adorable Monk Parakeet.

These parrots are similar to the wild parrots living in LA. They started as pets, escaped, and established themselves in the city.

Stromae - Papaoutai

"The video shows a young boy trying to interact with his unresponsive father who sits motionless, his expression and body resembling that of a mannequin, while outside other fathers and sons dance together."

The song/video are about the absence of his own father in his life, and this is one of the most powerful combinations of audio and visual that I think I’ve ever seen.
