Post at Les Miserables facebook group

To explain a bit better something I made reference to at today's morning meeting: 

You may have heard that that strange object spotted in our solar system earlier this year, the one that looked like a giant rock sliver, has been determined by Harvard scientists to actually be an alien vessel. This is for real --…/mysterious-interstellar-comet-may-be-a…

What Harvard did not determine for us is whom are alien visitors might be, but I can say with some authority that they belong to the alien race of GABATARS, of whom, it turns out, Gab... always seeming a bit -- and I hope this is of no offence! -- feline in appearance to me, is an advance scout. 

Therefore, in an effort to thwart recent trends on how to behave diplomatically... and so actually behave diplomatically, I have asked Dr. Grace Augustine, who literally wrote the book about GABATARS, to help us better understand the meaning behind their diction. 

To start, she wants us to know that when GABATARS say "they feel you dog," they mean more than just that they have some sense of your contour texture, but that they really feel and appreciate your deep core... and they don't really think of you as dogs, whom although they try and be at peace with, do at times end up being speared with their loosed arrows (of this, I have actual video evidence). 

This posted video will help you in understanding of one of the most important of GABATAR utterances, so there are no misunderstandings... so two cultures can come closer to finally being bridged:

Too late -- WE SAW your boobs

I think we're mostly familiar with ceremonies where we do anointing. Certainly, if we can imagine a context where humiliation would prove most devastating it'd probably be at a ceremony where someone thought themselves due an honor -- "Carrie," "Good Fellas." "We labored long to adore you, only so to prime your hope, your exposure … and then rather than a ladder up we descended the slops, and hoped, being smitten, you'd judged yourself worthless protoplasm -- a nothing, for letting yourselves hope you might actually be something -- due to be chuted into Hades or Hell." Ostensibly, nothing of the sort occurred during Oscars 2013, where the host, Seth Macfarlane, did a number featuring all the gorgeous Oscar-winning actresses in attendance who sometime in their careers went topless, and pointed this out to them. And it didn't -- not quite. Macarlane would claim that all obscenity would be directed back at him, for being the geek so pathetic …

Discussion over the fate of Jolenta, at the Gene Wolfe facebook appreciation site

Patrick McEvoy-Halston November 28 at 10:36 AM Why does Severian make almost no effort to develop sustained empathy for Jolenta -- no interest in her roots, what made her who she was -- even as she features so much in the first part of the narrative? Her fate at the end is one sustained gross happenstance after another... Severian has repeated sex with her while she lay half drugged, an act he argues later he imagines she wanted -- even as he admits it could appear to some, bald "rape" -- but which certainly followed his discussion of her as someone whom he could hate so much it invited his desire to destroy her; Severian abandons her to Dr. Talus, who had threatened to kill her if she insisted on clinging to him; Baldanders robs her of her money; she's sucked at by blood bats, and, finally, left at death revealed discombobulated of all beauty... a hunk of junk, like that the Saltus citizens keep heaped away from their village for it ruining their preferred sense of themse…

It might not have been worth it, Lupita

This is how Lupita Nhyong'o describes the shooting of the whipping scene in "12 Years a Slave":  And being there was more then enough to handle. "The reality of the day was that I was stripped naked in front of lots of people," Nyong'o said. "It was impossible to make that a closed set. In fact, I didn't even as for it to be a closed set, because at the end of the day, that was a privilege not granted to Patsey, you know? It really took me there. It was devastating to experiencing that, and to be tied to a post and whipped. Of course, I couldn't possible be really whipped. But just hearing the crack of that thing behind me, and having to react with my body, and with each whip, get weaker and weaker …" She grew quiet, and sighed. "I mean, it was -- I didn't practice it. It was just -- it was an exercise of imagination and surrender." Lupita was trying to become as close as she could to the actual Patsey, out of fidelity, apprec…
