I’m losing my shit. A Single Man is on Netflix.
If you know me well enough, then you know that this event is the emotional equivalent to me actually meeting Colin Firth. No joke. I love this movie so, so, so much. It’s such a great piece of art!
It’s hella white, and yeah, it’s yet another story in the male perspective, but if you can look past that and see its true artistic and emotional value, then pleasepleaseplease watch it. Watch it with the same care you would want your best friend to read your favorite book. Explore each frame, don’t go on your laptop while it’s on, examine the facial expressions (it really is Colin Firth’s best, and that’s saying a lot because I love The King’s Speech), appreciate the beauty of each shot, marinate in each word, fall into its rhythm. Don’t overlook it because it was directed/written by a fashion designer. This is a great film.
Just please watch it. It doesn’t pass the Bechdel test, which I know is the fucking worst, but it really has something to teach everyone.
Things Organized Neatly

This man, James Verone, robbed a bank for one dollar. Why only one dollar? Because he knew that in prison he could get the medical care he could not afford with his part time salary as a convenience store clerk. He was approved for food stamps, but they did little to help his finances. Between his back problems, carpel tunnel, and arthritis, he simply couldn’t handle the pain any longer.
On June 9th, he sent a letter to his local paper, the Gaston Gazette, that stated: “When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me. this robbery is being committed by me for one dollar. I am of sound mind but not so much sound body.”
He then took a cab to the RBC Bank, and handed the teller a note asking for one dollar and medical attention. He quietly took a seat in the lobby and waited for police to arrive.
Since Verone only stole one dollar, he was only charged with larceny. His bail, which he doesn’t plan to pay is set at $2,000, reduced from the normal $100,000. He’s scheduled to see a doctor this Friday, and hopes to get foot surgery, back surgery and to have a protrusion on his check treated.
To me, this is the perfect example of how disturbingly corrupt and unjust our health care system has become under HMO’s. For this man, or any person for that matter, feels that he needs to be imprisoned just to see a doctor, is ridiculous.
This is exactly what I hate about America. Why is it that you can buy an entire house with money you don’t have, but still can’t apply for health care if you don’t meet the requirements? That’s messed up.

Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.
