so far the best RSVP came from a friend apologising that she can't wear her wedding dress because it's too bulky to bring on the plane.

in retrospect perhaps it was unhelpful to write "dress code: lavish" on my birthday invitations without actually defining it, even to myself. excited to find out what it means.

in that context it makes sense to me that ppl dislike philip for just cheating on the protagonist, and for repeatedly pulling focus in what's meant to be a story with a female lead. whereas margaret's fictionalized unpleasantness is more "fun" maybe?

i was amused by an early Magnus Archives Q&A where a listener asked "will Martin be okay?" and the creators were like "categorically no, this is a horror podcast lol." what a fool, i thought smugly. 100 episodes later i'm like...... but WILL everyone be okay????

This is fake news bullshit from two producers I have really admired and respected in the past. If critics had a blanket problem with Apple, they would have taken that out on For All Mankind and Dickinson, too. They didn't.

What gets me is how utterly unexamined this stuff is. Over and over and over again I encounter people saying they dislike Corbyn, and within minutes of discussion it's very clear they don't know why.

incidentally S.J. Clarkson's next project was the female-led GoT spinoff, which was cancelled after they filmed an unaired pilot, and swiftly replaced by a *different* spinoff created by... the guy who wrote Rampage? which has been ordered to series *without* a pilot.

v dismal that the next Star Trek movie was gonna be the first one directed by a woman (S.J. Clarkson), but then they cancelled it & replaced her with this guy. (PLUS that other Trek film by Tarantino.)

The way The Secret Commonwealth links His Dark Materials' celebration of curiosity & fact-finding & storytelling to an explicit narrative about authoritarian regimes undermining the Truth... oof.
