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.

USPol, Inauguration 

Feels like the Third Reconstruction is nigh.

USPol, Inauguration 

It takes a lot to get that patriotic feeling going, but I felt it when Sotomayor swore in Harris.

USPol, Inauguration 

Gosh, this is tolerable to watch. Holy moly.

Spider 

First words out of my mouth: "I can't deal with you this morning."

Spider 

I opened the top of the coffee maker this morning and there was a spider there.

So anyway I'm replacing the coffee maker because I'm not fighting a spider over it.

I feel like we should have developed a pandemic-specific sport that caught fire and in 50 years everyone's like, "Where'd this weird-ass sport where everyone wears masks and attempts to use a 6 foot pole into a goal?"

Wait that's like half of sports. Are most sport pandemic sports?

USPol 

These pardons are going to come in at midnight or something.

Taskmaster, S09E04 

I appreciate a good game of pan hoop.

Tampopo 

I can't think of another food-based movie that so touches on life, sex, death, the ridiculous and food in such a comprehensive way that Tampopo does.

Tampopo 

Tampopo is an Avengers movie where they all come together to save a struggling ramen shop.

Tampopo 

We have ritualized violence in film. We know its conventions, its staging, and the fun of many films is playing with those to entertain.

So it's genuinely shocking when someone just kills an animal on camera.

Tampopo 

I'm learning some things about how to use egg yolks that Julia Child never put in her books.

Oops I guess I have a culture thread and a manga thread? I thought they were all in one.

Happiness, Vol. 7-8 

I am, however, heavily invested in Gosho and Sudo relationship. Really like both characters and was shocked at what Oshimi has put them through in this volume. Really reflects the narrative time he took establishing their relationship in the previous two volumes.

Anyway, there are only two volumes left in this and there's still some mysteries waiting in the wings.

Show thread

Happiness, Vol. 7-8 

These two volumes are reminding me I dislike rote cult junk. Besides some unsettling imagery, the cult is basically scenery.

The previous couple volumes were all about Gosho and her budding relationship with Sudo, and I'm somewhat disappointed that Gosho becomes more passive in this entry and Sudo (who admittedly has shown he is willing to put in work to help those around him) steps in to rescue her from a charismatic cult leader that I don't see as particularly charismatic.
