I enjoyed American Fiction, but I also thought, hmmm, the fact that this movie got made suggests that it is what it's skewering.
There's a scene where a book-prize panel has voted on racial lines. The 3 white members want to give the prize to a Black author. The 2 Black members — one of whom, anonymously, is that author, who'd written the book as a joke — argue against it, saying the book is inauthentic garbage.
One of the white panel members says the book wins by m…

An abstracted watercolor painting by Elaine de Kooning titled "Rio Grande" that seems to show that river's landscape, with large fields of brown, green, orange and yellow as well as accents of blue. It's brushy and soft and very beautiful.

Book(s) 5(a-d) is out the door in my #booksof2024 list - it's the first four books in Ursula K. #LeGuin's #Earthsea series. And what a brilliant entry this one was. Im slightly surprised it …

Multiocular O (ꙮ) is a rare glyph variant of the Cyrillic letter O.
This glyph variant can be found in a single 15th century manuscript, in the Old Church Slavonic phrase "серафими многоꙮчитїй"
(abbreviated "мн҇оꙮчитїй") (serafimi mnogoočitii, "many-eyed seraphim").
It was documented by Yefim Karsky in 1928 in a copy of the Book of Psalms (back of page 244) from around 1429, now found in the collection[9] of the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius.
