Hellooooo Mspsocial! Nice to meet you! I'm Josh. I like reading, gaming, and many other things.
Here are the living beings that depend on me, Kentucky cat and Louisiana cat. Kentucky is from Kentucky, has no teeth, and enjoys chasing her toys. Louisiana's origin is unknown, but that was her name at the Minneapolis shelter so it seemed like fate. She enjoys waking me up in the morning to feed her.
I'm Josh and trying to figure out how to be a lawyer.
I have two cats, Kentucky and Louisiana.
I post about the Court, USPol, puzzles, my cats, and whatever media catches my fancy.

CBF saw the NPR article on D&D's move to change some of the racist language and race essentialism connected to orcs, drow, and vistani and asked my opinion since he knows I play D&D.
I knew opened the convo up with "race essentialism is a key tenet of white supremacy" and then went on about how this applies to D&D, and of course he focused in on the "white supremacy" aspect.
CBF, recently: So what does "white supremacy" mean, really.
Me: Oh god why have you done this to me?
Sort of salacious so it seems the director has some preoccupations.
Don't really seen Russell's name come up a lot among great film directors, although he pops up from time to time, apparently.
Ken Russell directed a former roommate's most hated movie, "The Lair of the White Worm." I mean, it's not a great film by any means, but I think she mainly hates it b/c it's her mother's favorite film and her mother is a Piece of Work ™️
The film, btw, is Ken Russell's The Devils. Sex, violence, and blasphemy really gets those censors riled up, apparently. https://www.indiewire.com/2017/03/the-devils-ken-russell-banned-x-rated-1971-relevant-trump-era-controversial-1201795295/
Puny human memory lead me to believe I had seen it at some point in my life. Not sure why. Maybe that time of the 90s were horror came into vogue again and there was just a lot of them.
Felt like a slasher kind of night, so I watched it. Turned out I'd actually never seen it.
It's pretty good!
(This was not the movie I couldn't find)
Provided I can find this film, and 2021 Film Marathon happens, I have a pick for it.
That time of year when you get retirement rumblings. Apparently some about Alito, but hard for me to imagine any of the right-wing Justices retiring right now. But Alito is partisan enough, I think, to realize the value of getting a younger conservative on the Court ASAP before the admin changes. Still skeptical of that.
