A thing I say a lot: I feel like I'm drowning in television. @toddvanluling captures that feeling here: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/streaming-television-anxiety-homework_l_5d82433fe4b070d468c55919?ncid=engmodushpmg00000004
Been thinking about this a lot today

Asked if he will resign as Liberal Party leader: "I will continue to do the work that is necessary to keep us moving forward." So, no.
Q: "When did you realize that blackface was racist?"
He also declines to provide a definitive answer, again pivoting back to how he regrets that he had a life of privilege.
(Aside: this presser has been good French practice for my rusty high school French.)
Hoo boy, updated story here: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/justin-trudeau-blackface-video-photo_n_5d83856de4b0849d4724d2af?7s
Another reporter asks if he knows "how many."
He again dodges: "I am wary of being definitive about this because the recent pictures that came out, I had not remembered... Frankly, I didn't understand how hurtful this was to people who live with discrimination everyday."
Trudeau is asked exactly how many times he has worn blackface/brownface. He dodges.
Trudeau: "I didn't see that because of the layers of privilege that I have, and for that I am deeply sorry."
Trudeau responding to blackface video: "What I did hurt people who shouldn't have to face intolerance and discrimination because of their identity. This is something that I deeply, deeply regret," goes on to note the racist history of blackface.
Can't get over this last part: "I’ve read all her books and I just said oh no."
Another quote from this interview: "You know why I deleted it? Because Joyce Carol Oates criticized it. And I’m such a fan of Joyce Carol Oates. I’ve read all her books and I just said oh no."https://on.msnbc.com/2mpoSpU
This election is weird.
Waiting to watch this press conference where Trudeau is supposed address this new blackface video. He's late, but at least we get this nice view of fall leaves.
Prue sometimes gives out pats, and her "It's not worth the calories" is the closest thing she's got to a catchphrase. The bakers should aspire to impress her more. She is a badass!
I enjoy these descriptions of Paul Hollywood as "a stern British gentleman who looks like Simon Cowell after he’s been washed with Woolite" and "physical embodiment of manspreading"https://www.vulture.com/2019/09/great-british-baking-show-hollywood-handshake-bad.html
