@cat Of course. It's always a different story when they don't like what's being said.
@guest2 Why is this always the response of conservatives whenever someone is criticised for their opinions? No one is preventing Margaret Court from speaking, as she proves every time she shoots her mouth off.
@gu3st Victorians, yes, and also any of the Australians stranded overseas right now, who would love to be sitting in hotel quarantine.
Definitely creepy! It would make me think twice about entering a place where I had use a manual sign-in. I think I'd try to find another place, if possible. I'm not keen on anyone who enters a particular store having access to my phone number.
I just finished watching Bump a couple of weeks ago and I have no memory of the character Esha at all. Am I that oblivious or was it a really small part? Talia was a pretty small part too but I do remember her.
@cat From what I've heard, he has hurt people, including the woman who originally leaked these messages. He apparently ignored the boundaries they had set and her use of safe words. Emotional and physical abuse was also allegedly the reason his wife left him.
Georgina Chapman has been divorced from Harvey Weinstein since 2018.
They shouldn't be allowed to see people on Christmas Day either. The virus isn't going to take a break for Christmas. Infections are going to skyrocket after Christmas now.
@guest2 Excellent, I really enjoy Stephen Fry, so I'll keep an eye out for those. Thanks!
Short stories help me out of my reading slumps. Or something non-fiction but relatively light - a Bill Bryson or Mary Roach book or a memoir from a comedian. I find I often don't have the attention span to follow a long story when I'm in a slump, so these kinds of books help me out.
@rush People have recommended Circe to me but I'm not sure about it. Do you think you need to know anything about Greek mythology to enjoy it? If not, I'd be willing to give it a go.
@kathp There are plenty of Christians who interpret the Bible differently than you do. The fact that you've never heard of them suggests that yes, you do need to get out more.
@guest2 Those actors who can put "bums on seats" can only do so because someone gave them a chance and through that chance, they were able to build their profile and get bigger and bigger roles. There is no reason trans actors, actors with limb differences or autistic actors shouldn't be given those same chances. Right now, that's not happening.
@random dude Ever hear the saying "those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it"? Do you think it might have a teensy bit of relevancy here?
@guest2 That's not why Anne Hathaway apologised. She apologised because the witches in the film have only three fingers and the depiction looks quite similar to a real-life condition called ectrodactyly. This made some people with similar limb differences concerned that children watching the film would begin to associate having fewer limbs/digits with being "evil" or "bad". No one was blaming her. She apologised because she obviously has some empathy for other people.
I was a bit of an attention whore in primary school and I *loved* doing the responsorial psalm!
It's kind of...disappointing that he had to post a literal Nazi symbol in order to finally get cancelled. The batshit "health" advice, the anti-vax stuff, the 5G rubbish, the Covid-19 denialism (after he first tried to cash in on it with that $25K lamp, so we know how sincere the denialism is) and then the Trump/QAnon stuff wasn't enough, apparently.
Kind of want to watch Secret Obsession now, not gonna lie. I'm notoriously bad about seeing twists in movies. I'm a screenwriter's dream, because I never see them coming. So I'm curious is this one is so bad that it will be obvious even to me.
@cat It's probably happened a few times. Has it happened enough that it necessitates an entire article bemoaning the practice, as if it's some sort of trend though? I truly doubt it.
