And apparently it's less moot than I thought at the time, since there's actually a show on the way. It's been retooled as Jodie, a show based on a supporting character I only vaguely remember. (But I lost track of the show around 2000ish.)
Hmmm. I wouldn't mind a Jodie centered spin-off. But I don't agree that Jodie was woke before it was cool. Jodie was a girl with ambition. If the show doesn't come with snappy dialogue and cynicism, they're ruining the brand.
Just so.

And yes, "woke" is basically evolving to mean "realizing the world is shitty, which nobody noticed before gen-x academics and millennials who read their books".

Is it? Everywhere I've encountered it, it means "My pasty penis is the reason your life sucks".


On the "it's not cool to care" front, I'm flabbergasted that they're pointing at 90's TV and Movies when it was 70's (and 80's) punk rock that lived by that creed. Like explicitly and exclusively.

Kurt Suzuki is a catcher for the Nats who wore a MAGA hat to the White House and received a bad touch from President Trump.

Question for those of you who actually "use" Twitter (making/liking tweets, sending and receiving PMs, etc.) -- have you been getting delays in your notifications -- as in, you're on your home page, you DO in fact have some news messages in your PM folder, but you see no such notification?

I use Twitter in a browser and it always takes 10-20 seconds for the notifications number to show up.

Twitter for me has always been slow on notifications -- on Facebook, for example, if I have a notification, the little red box that will eventually contain the number of notifications shows up before the rest of the page loads, whereas on Twitter, any notifications are the LAST to load on the page -- but lately Twitter's been doing stuff like, Jeff sent me a PM while he was at work last night, but I did not see it until I tried sending HIM a message today, because I NEVER got a notification at ALL. (Nor did I change my notification settings.)

Yeesh.

"Volume looks good." Yeah, but volume needs to be evenly distributed, or at least arranged in a visually pleasing manner. The hairstyles in that picture look like some weird "poof mullets": big and poofy on the top yet flat and floppy on the sides.

Update: reading the responses to the tweet, I gather most disagree with Nicole and me:


I totally agree! And for those who have dead straight hair with no volume it was the perfect compromise. I must be a southern belle at heart

I am also just anti-volume. It's a grass-is-always-greener thing but seriously fuck people who have such nice flat straight hair that they actually want more volume. It's like complaining about being too thin.

Heh, that is the complete opposite of my stance: I am firmly pro-volume (though with very strict notions regarding where and how that volume should be arranged). But then, my face and head are both of a shape that I need a degree of hair-volume framing them, if I want any chance of getting within shouting distance of contemporary "attractiveness" standards. (That's why, when I moved to Georgia and had to start wearing high ponytails, I ultimately had to break my budget to buy expensive-ish barrettes that made ponytails wide enough to have some "framing volume" visible from all angles.)

Compare that to someone like Sinead O'Connor in her "Lion and the Cobra" days -- even with her head shaved bald, it was still obvious she had a very pretty face. If you hate volume and like straight flat hair, I'm guessing your facial and head shapes are more like hers, than my wide boxy Eastern European ones.

Ugh, why is Twitter recommending #ImpeachingHearings as a trending hashtag for me? That sounds so stupid. Why can't you say #ImpeachmentHearings? I suppose if you write it all lowercase it does parse too easily to "impeach men the a-rings" but come on.

I swear, Twitter is becoming more unintelligible to me with each passing day.
I can't make heads or tails out of who said what to whom there. I think it's about some people throwing a hissy fit over someone posting a negative book review? And it's boys against girls? I dunno.
