The suit of Pinz. I bet it will become a fad. Like eating a candy bar with a fork and knife.
At least they got the cape right.

But where's the hat?

The innernet has become so advanced that it now always changes "pinhed" to "pinned." Rolling Eyes

It also changes "innernet" to "internet." Rolling Eyes

'scuse me for leaving so abruptly--the phone rang, and it was Grushchenka, and she's in Alexandria, of all places. Shocked

She said that when she voted for Obama she thought he was Bernie Sanders, but he turned out to be Barry Goldwater. Razz

Remember what made the first season of Sleepy Hollow so great? The show’s definitely trying to remember. Last night’s fall finale reads like a callback list of big moments from season one—right down to the final sacrifice.

This season of Sleepy Hollow has made me think about how shows build and lose trust, and what difference it makes to the way one approaches a show. A storytelling decision that would enrage strangers is a brilliant twist for those who have faith in the show to pull off whatever they’re trying. When Sleepy Hollow began, the revelation that the wild concept was grounded by an amazing central couple and had a refreshing supporting cast note-perfectly in line with the tone of the show meant that we took a lot on faith.

And for the most part, that first season delivered. Crane was by turns charmingly sincere and hilariously over the top; Abbie was a great onion of a character whose pragmatism disguised both fear and hope; Jenny moved out from under the shadow of Abbie’s expectations to become a unique member of the team. By the time Abbie sacrificed herself for Katrina in the first season finale, it was a narrative necessity (in accordance with prophecy), but it also sprang from the deep bond we’d seen developing between Abbie and Crane over the season and felt like an opportunity for even more exploration of character amid unsettling horror. It was also the episode in which Henry revealed that he was actually Jeremy, Ichabod and Katrina’s evil son whose age was literally inexplicable within the established canon timeline, but overall we were excited to see where Abbie (and Crane) would go next.

The second season pretty much assassinated most people’s faith in the show. To the show’s credit, it seems aware of how narrow its escape was and has been doing work to reestablish trust with its audience. We come back to some of Abbie’s personal demons; it found a natural fit with Joe Corbin. (It’s even backed away from Betsy Ross so we didn’t have to deal with yet another Ye Olde Chronologically Tricky Love Interest!) There have been some weird things, but the effort is there. The show wants to recapture the magic of season one.

And wouldn’t you know it, this fall finale feels just like a greatest-hits album! Whether that’s a good thing remains to be seen.

Thing is, there is REAL Sumerian mythology that needs to be elucidated by Ichabod and and his associates. bounce

So why are the writers just making up fake Sumerian gods and liaisons with mortals? scratch

The pinhed has just one piece of advice for TV writers--KEEP IT REAL.

less time-consuming, but not as forgivable in Wicklepaedia era.  Pros like Joe Menosky would never do such a thing.

La gente, necesitando una manera solemne de dirigirse a nobles y altos dignatarios, comenzó a utilizar la expresión Vuestra Merced, que por tratarse de una manera indirecta de dirigirse a alguien, usaba la conjugación verbal correspondiente a la tercera persona. De esta manera, si alguien necesitaba hablar con un superior jerárquico, un noble o un alto dignatario, le decía: "Si Vuestra Merced lo desea, puede disponer de esta sala..." o "¿Cómo estuvo el viaje de Vuestra Merced?" o "Espero que Vuestra Merced haya disfrutado de su comida" u otras frases por el estilo. Vuestra Merced se generalizó entonces como fórmula de profundo respeto.

The trouble with non-commercial radio is that there's too many darned commercials. Mad

The idea that Ghost in the Shell is inherently a work of Japanese science fiction is a key complaint. Written by Masamune Shirow, it first debuted in manga form back in 1989. The series, as part of the then-burgeoning cyberpunk genre, explores globalization, the body, and consciousness in the postmodern world through the lens of technology. The narrative challenges commonplace notions about what might make a human being identifiable as a person. However, the setting never varies. The Major is Japanese. Even though the cityscapes she explores are futuristic and multicultural, they have their foundations in Japan. And the relationship the series has to technology is Japanese. (And don't forget that anime characters are typically identified as Japanese.) Casting a Caucasian woman as the Major (whose given name is actually Motoko Kusanagi) ignores those facts.

Now, a reasonable argument might assert that properties that have their roots in Asian cultures have crossed over in American adaptations without issue. What about Godzilla? What about Oldboy? What about The Departed, a.k.a. Infernal Affairs? Why can’t a Ghost in the Shell from the States tackle the same quandaries from an American perspective?

Tsuei would argue that a movie like that would no longer be Ghost in the Shell.

Jon Tsuei ‎@jontsuei
The manga came out in 1989, the first film 1995. An era when Japan was considered the world leader in technology.

Jon Tsuei ‎@jontsuei
Everything hot in that era came out of Japan. Cars, video games, walkmans, all of that. Japan was setting a standard.
7:41 PM - 14 Apr 2016

Jon Tsuei ‎@jontsuei
This is a country that went from poised to conquer to the Pacific to forcibly disarmed. They poured their resources into their economy.

Jon Tsuei ‎@jontsuei
And as a country that was unable to defend themselves, but was a world leader in tech, it created a relationship to tech that is unique.
7:43 PM - 14 Apr 2016

Jon Tsuei ‎@jontsuei
Ghost In The Shell plays off all of these themes. It is inherently a Japanese story, not a universal one.
7:44 PM - 14 Apr 2016


Jon Tsuei ‎@jontsuei
This casting is not only the erasure of Asian faces but a removal of the story from its core themes.

Jon Tsuei ‎@jontsuei
You can "Westernize" the story if you want, but at that point it is no longer Ghost In The Shell because the story is simply not Western.

There is a Mexican celebrity named Ninel Conde. Suspect

This is extremely odd, because only Soviet girls are named Ninel (Lenin backwards).

Were her parents commies? Shocked
