I'm blown away, y'all.
Movies like this NEVER get greenlit. Studios are supposed to be pussies that are too afraid to make wholly original animated films that don’t piggyback on an existing IP or be an irreverent kid’s comedy.   
The Mitchells vs. The Machines is a love letter to the animation medium itself. A passion project created BY artists FOR artists. Katie’s struggles as an 18-year-old aspiring creative was the call-out post of a lifetime. And when I saw those end credits that featured the crew's family pics, I was touched beyond belief ‘cause that’s how you know this film wants its artists to be SEEN.

The descent into madness by azula was just. So well demonstrated in her appearance. Towards the beginning of when we meet Azula she’s working on her lightning technique.
Tumblr media
This is obviously known to be a very hard technique. She is congratulated after completing the technique but then there’s this exchange.
Almost perfect. One hair out of place
Almost isn’t good enough.
And as she descends into madness we see more and more her relationship with her hair and it’s just such a good visual for her descent
Tumblr media
Her hair at this point, when she realizes it’s a fight she might not actually win. This is one of the first times we see her hair actually messy like this.
Tumblr media
Her hair again in this scene, a very obvious example but powerful nonetheless. This is when we see her at practically her lowest in the series. (She gets arguably lower when she realizes she can’t beat zuko unless she shoots at Katara)
But it’s also important to see when her hair remains pristine.
Tumblr media
For example, her hair is perfect in these scenes because they are times when she truly feels in control.
Azula’s hair has always told a story about her confidence in herself. Whether that story is about her strengths or her weaknesses, it’s always been plain on her design.

Bo Burnham’s new Netflix special is pretty definitively NOT a comedy special.
I don’t think I laughed, or even exhaled out of my nose. Maybe I will if I watch it a decade from now when the subject matter isn’t so raw.
What it was was a movie. A film. An experience. And definitely a Special.
I have cried at Bo Burnham’s songs before, but never quite like this. 
“Inside” was perhaps our first glimpse of Bo performing as himself, rather than his stage persona (although he does that too).
I have more to say about it, but what I’d really like to say is: watch it.

"Because if you have the sort of brain that thinks and thinks and never stops, and a heart that feels and feels and never lets up, you have to distract yourself like you’ll die if you don’t."

The other day, after watching a really good film, I was thinking about this feeling I get when I'm watching or reading something I am beginning to realise I love (usually after going into it with low/vague expectations). It's a feeling of gradual escalating elation, a slow build of euphoria, joy gathering speed. [This book] made me feel that. It made me feel like neglected synapses were suddenly ablaze.

Hybrid Note Taking Style
A note taking method that blends the best of paper and digital note taking that I’ve been exploring lately. So far it’s working really well for me :) Hope it helps! 
Hybrid Note Taking Method
Problems with other note taking systems
Each note taking system has its pros and cons. Here are some of the problems I found with (fully) paper and (fully) digital note taking systems.
Can't use the search function on your notes.
Can't add images and other types of digital files easily.
Difficult to keep overview between notebooks.
Can't share these as easily as digital notes.
Not as 'romantic'.
Sometimes less engaging.
Lack of physical presence can lead to you forgetting about it.
Can be more difficult to do things like sketching, making schemes, making illustrations etc.
Benefits of Hybrid
I like using hybrid methods because they bring you the best of both worlds.
Easily searchable.
Information in your notes is traceable.
Makes it easier to find and carry out actions e.g. finding extra info.
Doesn't damage books.
Allows you to embed different types of files.
What you'll need
Source material (e.g. book, academic paper)
Any kind of notebook :)
Digital note-taking app → I like Notion (it's free).
Step 1 - Read & number the material
As you go, use a pencil to lightly put numbers into the margins whenever you deem something worthy of noting down or remembering. This will help you locate the source of specific parts of your notes later.
Step 2 - Write Q&A-style notes
Write the information down in question-and-answer style. Come up with useful questions that link to the material you want to remember (e.g. Q → What is the main problem with using platform-based planning for new ventures? A → Assumptions underlying the plan are used as fact rather than best-guess estimates to be tested and questioned). Use the numbers you placed in the margin of the pages to specify the source of the information you used for each answer.
Example → Chapter 1 page 27 note 3 becomes 1.p27.3
Step 3 - Write actions as you go (Supporting notes)
Supporting notes
Write down your thoughts, anything you're curious about, things you want to look up, things you're confused about, actions you've been inspired to do, etc. For example → ?m Maybe I can apply this to my visualization assignment? / ! Look up what 'plurality of the future' is / fex Organizational transformation through design. I find this a great way to support and manage the learning process.
Action key
Keep a small action key in which you have an overview of what your action marks mean (e.g. ?m→ questions to myself, f → find, fex → find example, ?? → I don't get it, ! → general actions)
Don't be afraid to customize your actions!
What you'll get
Actionable notes
Your paper notes will contain a structured and easy to read overview of actionable items that came up during the reading. This can be questions you need answered, reminders to find specific information, etc. This will make them a lot harder to forget to do!
Easily traceable sources
With the codes you'll be able to tell easily and quickly where the information you've written in your notes came from.
Searchable & review-ready notes
Notes will be (mostly) made in question-and-answer style. This will allow you to easily review using active recall. All you need to do is cover/hide the answer and you can check how well you truly know the material.
Thanks for reading!
