I watched the news coming out of Ferguson last night with a heavy heart. Bob McCulloch presided over an obscenity. There is no other word for it.

This MOW episode felt like filler to me. It's really just a lead-in to one of their lamer third season ideas: William Bell and his soul magnets. The science was questionable but what else is new. And really, Fringe writers, another episode about a scientist without ethical principles trying to save his own son at the expense of hurting other people? There's a token effort to tie it into the larger plot arc by having Walter proclaim that the floating men are an example how of our universe is breaking apart and it's all his fault, which by the way, doesn't make sense and never did. What about all of those fucking trips to the Redverse that William fucking Bell made, so many that he literally exploded at the end of season two? Why do the writers insist that Walter shoulder all of the blame? William Bell made multiple trips, stole technology from the Redverse that allowed him to create Massive Dynamic, and became rich and powerful. Walter made one desperate trip to save the life of another man's son. Okay, end of editorial ranting.

this is the downside of northern Michigan weather: late last night, when it had been raining all day and the snow was fully melted off, I looked at the registered Ferguson protest rallies downstate and thought, yes I too will go, I'm more together than I was last month, I can pull that. buuuut then it snowed half a foot overnight, and it's still coming down this morning. and it gets dark early here, which - snow accumulation on unfrozen ground, on the highway, in the dark, for 2-3 hrs, all by myself and keyed up as fuck.

so there's that borked. note to self: access to organized political events might be one good reason to move to Detroit next year, instead of heading further into the woods. posting this to acknowledge to myself that no, I will not be haring off to Grand Rapids later tonight, so I may as well try to relax into an analysis groove instead.

Mondays, every week, let's celebrate ourselves, to start the week right. Tell me what you're proud of. Tell me what you accomplished last week, something -- at least one thing -- that you can turn around and point at and say: I did this. Me. It was tough, but I did it, and I did it well, and I am proud of it, and it makes me feel good to see what I accomplished. Could be anything -- something you made, something you did, something you got through. Just take a minute and celebrate yourself. Either here, or in your journal, but somewhere.

(And if you feel uncomfortable doing this in public, I've set this entry to screen any anonymous comments, so if you want privacy, comment anonymously and I won't unscreen it. Also: yes, by all means, cheer each other on when you see something you want to give props to!)

I am deeply upset (but not at all surprised) by the grand jury in Ferguson declining to indict Darren Wilson for shooting Mike Brown. (Everything I read about how the grand jury was convened and how the evidence was presented makes it absolutely crystal clear the prosecutor did not want the indictment. Which, again: heartbreaking, but not at all surprising.) I'm more upset by the fact that county prosecutor Robert McCulloch made the announcement at 9PM -- that was such a bone-headed move that even before I saw the announcement there was absolutely no doubt in my mind the timing was deliberate to provoke the very response that happened last night as protests erupted into violent confrontation. You don't announce news like that at 9PM unless you want an explosion -- every conflict gets escalated after dark -- and it's yet-a-fucking-nother example of how badly the whole thing was handled from the beginning.

I'm posting, however, to let people know about the Ferguson National Response Network, which has a coordinated list of protests being planned across the country, mostly for today. I don't know if I'm going to be physically capable of attending Baltimore's tonight, but there are planned protests in loads of locations and judging by my reading list I know a lot of you are just as upset as I am.

(And if you're looking for something you can give to people in your life who don't get it, I thought this article by Janee Woods, 12 Ways to Be a White Ally to Black People, was a really good attempt at being concise and clear about a very complicated subject.)

Captain America

gwyneth rhys (gwyneth) - Dark Approach
I loved Bucky's pov, his character voice, and seeing how he recovers from what he'd been through for the last 70 years.

(recs-Marvel,recs-CaptainAmerica,f4,Length:50k-100k,Pairing:BuckyBarnes/SteveRogers)


trinityofone - To Live It Again Is Past All Endeavor
I had a blast reading this story. I loved the bodyswap and time travel angle and how both where handled.

gwyneth rhys (gwyneth) - I can’t remember how this started (but I can tell you exactly how it ends)
I really enjoyed seeing Bucky figure out what was going on and trying to figure out how to break the repeating days.

(recs-Marvel,recs-CaptainAmerica,f4,Length:10k-20k,Pairing:BuckyBarnes/SteveRogers,Trope:GroundhogDay)


Teen Wolf

pocketmumbles (livelikejack) - Wolf Moon 'verse
I loved the time travel aspect of this story and seeing what changes as a result of Scott going back in time to talk with Derek.

the MSNBC stream of Ferguson, MO tonight is really fucking intense; they run a split screen of the president's address and the reaction happening on the ground, young people acting out hurt and betrayal, police lines and vehicles and weapons, and then tear gas all over the place, and over it all the president's voice almost sometimes daring to approach the truth before haring off again on respectability politics tangents. Some of the juxtapositions might have been fucking engineered for maximum irony.

1. we're living in a fucking dystopia, 2. I am so done, so infinitely done, with the democrat establishment. so done.
