Whatever Steven Universe’s faults, you’ve gotta give it credit for taking the standard “kid with a nontraditional family consisting of one aggressively normal mom and half a dozen increasingly fucked up dads” bit and very precisely flipping the script.

Cross-century historical paranormal situational comedy is great fun. Tearing through Ghosts right now and am in great danger of finishing the whole series in under two days.

Do you think American actors’ interest in having a specific process is a way of compensating for often lacking the classical grounding that British actors typically have?
I think that’s a lot to do with it. The musicality of work, they don’t have. We are brought up understanding the iambic form and how that works; how when Shakespeare moves from verse to prose there is a process — horrible word again! — going on. There’s a great example in “Hamlet”: He comes on and says the “To be or not to be” speech, and Ophelia, who’s so entrenched in courtly life, responds in verse. He tries to pull her away from verse to prose and she will not be pulled. She’s not being pulled, and he’s going on, “If you be honest, your honesty should admit no discourse to your beauty.” He’s taking her on this incredible journey. At the end, she has to go right back to the verse: “Oh what a noble mind is here o’erthrown. Courtier’s, soldier’s, scholar’s eye . . . the observed of all observers quite, quite down.” That’s brilliant, and if you learn that as an actor, you understand that there’s a whole musical sense at work. That’s the classical root. As a pig-ignorant Scot, I’m incredibly grateful to have learned that. Not everyone has.

Así ... como el óleo seca en el lienzo y lo viste de una imagen multicolor, mis manos, pintan entre los dedos, " tu cuerpo " de suaves caricias extenuadas en amor. Así ... como la tierra guarda en su vientre profundo vestigios y ruinas de una cultura anterior yo, guardo con celo en el cofre de mi corazón las cenizas inanimadas... " de tu calor ". Así ... como la acuarela seca adherida al papel plasmando la idea del silencioso pintor mi carne, seca gozosa en la orilla de tu piel y allí, muere de amar en tu resplandor !! Así... como la inmensa mar se funde en el cielo y en los inertes vuelos de las gaviotas yo, me fundo muy hondo a tu lejano recuerdo en medio de dos almas... " heridas y rotas ". Así... como la atmósfera rodea y ciñe la tierra aislando del vacío y del frio la vida... yo, rodeo con mis muslos tus piernas enloquecidas y plasmo de blancas lunas tu dilatada caverna encendida ".

Squid Game's "botched" subtitles have changed the show's meaning for English-speaking viewers, some Korean-speaking fans say.
The Korean-language drama is about an alternative world where people in debt compete in deadly games.
But fluent Korean speaker Youngmi Mayer claims the closed-caption subtitles in English are "so bad" that the original meaning is often lost...
"The dialogue was so well written and zero of it was preserved [in the subtitles]," Youngmi said in a Twitter post.
In a TikTok video that's had almost nine million views, Youngmi gave several examples of mistranslation.
In one scene a character tries to convince people to play the game with her, and the closed-caption subtitles read: "I'm not a genius, but I still got it worked out."
But what the character actually says, Youngmi explains, is: "I am very smart, I just never got a chance to study."
That translation puts more emphasis on the wealth disparity in society - which is also a theme in the Oscar-winning 2019 Korean film, Parasite.
"Almost everything she says is being botched translation-wise… the writers, all they want you to know about her is that," Youngmi said.
"[It] seems so small, but it's the entire character's purpose of being in the show."
Fans commenting on Youngmi's thread have questioned Netflix's translation strategy, and others have pointed out that less accurate captions make it difficult for those trying to learn a new language.

Honestly, a big part of the reason I rarely shitpost about monster-of-the-week urban fantasy in spite of being a big fan of the genre is because nine times out of ten someone will be like “this incredibly stupid thing that you’ve proposed actually happens in Supernatural” and they’ll be 100% correct.

Lights in the twilight... "grotesque arrogance", that illuminate the disasters of man and his ignorance. What are these lights? what energy do they radiate? What is the logic of their light... of fires and tin? Who cries in the back room of the unfinished night? The bird, the troubadour, o... "a starving Quijote without sword or blades".

One of the weirdest media phenomena I’ve encountered is that I keep running into folks in their 50s and 60s who are absolutely convinced that Scooby-Doo was this obscure little cartoon that ran for like one season when they were young, that kids these days probably wouldn’t recognise, and are absolutely gobsmacked to learn that, well:
Tumblr media
[Description: A Wikipedia infobox titled “List of Scooby-Doo media”. The listed media includes 15 printed comics, 45 feature-length films, 46 short films, 13 television shows, one web series, six stage plays, twenty video games, and a variety of breakdowns dividing the previously mentioned figures into television versus direct-to-video numbers, etc.]
I haven’t run into this with any other notable media franchise, either. It’s like there’s this massive cultural blind spot with respect to Scooby-Doo in particular.
