Hmm, who’d be an interesting journalist to do a live podcast with on 5th birthday tomorrow, given the impending Facebook $5B fine and the situation at The Markup? Hmm, what about ? Ok.

Talked to some economists about this yesterday but figured I'd put out an open call: I spend a weird amount of my life cropping PDFs of econ/poli sci papers to get charts from them, charts that were once PNGs and I remake into PNGs. Post your PNGs! Break this vicious cycle!

FWIW Truffaut specifically applied this to Paths of Glory in the interview where he said it. The point isn't that filmmakers don't sometimes try to show to horrors of war; the point is that they'll inevitably portray war as heroic and meaning-giving too.

right, 13 Assassins and the John Wick scenes in the nightclub and in the subway with Common stand out because they're very well done. That's rare and esp so on GoT

it seems mildly unfair to reduce GoT to its interminable battles

i was talking about game of thrones with two very casual, partial watchers and they correctly identified the main currents of the show as "ren faire pervert" and "medieval star wars"

until Blackwater it was a nice show about court politics without basically any battles whatsoever. There have been, what, like, three battles total?

"Some films claim to be antiwar, but I don't think I've really seen an antiwar film. Every film about war ends up being pro-war."

I saw that was tweeting excitedly about the possibilities for industrial growth in Africa. So I asked a colleague who's a specialist in African history. Her answers (I hope she threaded them?) bear reading...

It is a surreal retelling of American history as being entirely the story of the Mail. There’s a picture of Kitty Hawk labeled “this plane did not carry mail but future planes would.” It’s beautiful
