APE

CANT HEAR OVER CURRENT

fun fact: the swimming monkey is a male proboscis monkey. i wrote an o’reilly animal book* and they chose to put that animal on the cover, so I read up on them. they’re good swimmers.

*having written an o’reilly animal book means something to a particular kind of early-stage Internet geek, but the o’reilly animal book I wrote was arguably the least-deserving of such status out of the many such books, so I’m not claiming any specialness for having done that. just wanted to explain why I feel a special fondness for the male proboscis monkey.

fyi, my tumblr account is worth a lot to *me*. I come here when I can’t take the political shit I follow on twitter. seeing the mutuals and aesthetic bloggers and fellow lovers of fandom meta I follow here is like being able to breathe again, sometimes, which, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, is exceedingly valuable. especially now.

She didn’t but thank you for the input!

Joan of arc is a very popular figure in media so her image is subject to a lot of bending. Sometimes it’s very subtle, and other times it’s very apparent. There’s no official pictures or paintings of her that survived from her time, but there are several trial transcripts that describe her, as well as first hand reports and letters from those who worked beside her that do the same.

The general consensus within these that I found on her appearance was that Joan was pretty short and stocky. Her eyes were far apart, and somewhat large, her hair was black/dark brown and close cut, and she had a fairly common looking face. Multiple people report that she had a red birthmark behind her left ear and a low but sweet voice. A surprising amount is written about her physical strength despite her small stature. I would suggest you read De Boulainvilliers’ (Chamberlain to Charles VII) letters, among others. He knew her first hand and goes into a lot of depth about her appearance and aura.

A big part of her rebranding is making her seem older, more feminine, paler, and blonder. Due to color/racism as well as light representing purity, renditions of her make her whiter (she was a poor farmer from mid/south France which means she was on the darker side of white complexions) to show holiness. People also make her more feminine due to stigma against women who “don’t look like women” and to lean into her Virgin Mary esk aura.

(Here’s two paintings I found that more accurately represent her image)

Dang, Ian. That was fast.

I think our disagreements often mask a deeper agreement, in which one person is manifesting their love of something by focusing on its perceived flaws, highlighting how those shortcomings are so in contrast to the loved essence of the thing, while the other is performatively disregarding those flaws, blithely ignoring them to celebrate the same loved essence.

Anyway, I don’t know how you feel about this adaptation. I know some people don’t like it much. I liked it a lot.

I liked its gentle persistence in being thoroughly and deeply not the 1996 theatrical-release adaptation. I loved its female gaze. I loved its awareness of the servant class, and of the lens provided by their halting and embarrassed efforts to inhabit the margins of their ridiculous and self-absorbed employers’ lives.

I loved the clothes.

I loved the Weston’s ball at the Crown. Loved it so much. Harriet’s face when Knightley approached her was heartbreaking, and de Wilde’s handling of the rest of the evening was the sort of thing I watch this kind of movie for.

Box Hill was excruciating. Miss Bates’ reaction, and Knightley’s subsequent remonstrance at the carriage, were among my favorite and least favorite moments in the film, if that makes any sense.

Knightley and Emma’s big scene under that beautiful tree was wonderful, and then, as if the storyteller was toying with the characters, it pulled back into farce, and you know what? I loved that too. I loved that it subjected Emma to that gentle indignity, the Emma who in this adaptation was so unrelentingly cold and imperious, so unlikeable. To humanize her in that moment, to have her emotion manifest in that way, felt earned to me, even as I get why some have said they found it off-putting.

I haven’t mentioned a bunch of other performances that I loved: Mr. Woodhouse, the Eltons, the Taylors, Frank and Jane. I thought they were all wonderful.

So yes, I liked it a lot. At a time when the real world has conspired to layer a number of unpleasant associations onto the 1996 theatrical release (at least in my mind) it’s a relief to have this new interpretation, to enter into a new imagining of the world of the novel, without any of that.

I know there’s a lot here you might disagree with. “But if you have any wish to speak openly to me as a friend… I will hear whatever you like.” :-)

Protoparmeliopsis peltata 

Brown rock-posy

We have these nice words for lichen thallus morphology–crustose, squamulose, foliose, fruticose–but lichens are rebels. They like to do their own thing and defy expectations. I am at a loss for how to classify the growth form of this P. peltata. It is umbilicate (meaning it is attached by a central hold fast) and can be monophyllous (made up of one main “leaf”) or lobate (made up of mutliple “leaves”).  The thallus is usually plane to concave, and the margins are usually rolled downward away from the center. The upper surface is pale yellow or yellow-green, matte, and cracked. The lower surface is brownish, with bluish-black edges,and can be strongly crack toward the center. Apothecia are abundant, crater-like, and have an orangish disc. The apothecial margin is usually thalline (contains both mycobiont and photobiont), and cracked or crenulate around the disc. P peltata colonizes calcium-rich or siliceous steep rock surfaces in temperate, boreal, and mountain habitats. It has a disjointed range that stretches from S Europe to SW and central Asia, into N Africa, and throughout western North America. Besides being confusing morphologically, this little rebel is chemically variable as well. And on top of that, genetic analysis sorted this lichen into a new clade only 5 years ago. Keep us guessing, little friend. You make the world more interesting that way (and give us scientists something to study).

Broke: Deciding to preemptively hate the latest Austen adaptation because it’s not an identical copy of the book and/or your favorite existing adaptation and shitting on anyone who disagrees with you

Woke: Opening yourself up to new Austen adaptations even though you still think there is one definitive best version

Bespoke: Truly loving every single adaptation and being absolutely thrilled that the classic stories so near and dear to your heart are constantly getting new life and fresh perspectives and knowing that all of these unique adaptations can coexist while enhancing and informing one another and at the very least now you’ll have another love confession scene to add to your list of ‘YouTube videos to cry to’
