The Film Society at Lincoln Center is playing the 1966/67 Soviet film adaptation of War and Peace *THIS WEEK ONLY*. It's screening in 4 parts, but you can buy tickets as a package for $25.
Tickets for Part IV on Wednesday and Thursday are already sold out, BUT you can do what I did and see Parts III and IV tonight and Parts I and II tomorrow.

Have received two back to back work calls and haven’t even had coffee, yet.
My job is fun.
@pentaro Not at all! I just know sometimes PayPal takes a %, but it’s no problem.
@pentaro Cool! I could Venmo or cashapp you and print it myself— I just want to make sure that artists are getting paid. 🖤

I often find myself rereading Bertrand Russell's letter to Mosley:
"Thank you for your letter and for your enclosures. I have given some thought to our recent correspondence. It is always difficult to decide on how to respond to people whose ethos is so alien and, in fact, repellent to one’s own. It is not that I take exception to the general points made by you but that every ounce of my energy has been devoted to an active opposition to cruel bigotry, compulsive violence, and the sadistic persecution which has characterised the philosophy and practice of fascism.
I feel obliged to say that the emotional universes we inhabit are so distinct, and in deepest ways opposed, that nothing fruitful or sincere could ever emerge from association between us.
I should like you to understand the intensity of this conviction on my part. It is not out of any attempt to be rude that I say this but because of all that I value in human experience and human achievement."
@pentaro Do you sell prints, by any chance? My best friend’s birthday is coming up and she:
• is obsessed with funny German phrases, to the point that her newsletter (she’s a writer) is called Grief Bacon, after the phrase kummerspeck
• is rather (in)famous for her coffee consumption
• is a red head and kind of a fox, tbh
and I would LOVE to give her one for her birthday.
@shoutcacophony Just riffin’ on this “If you look like this, DM me” meme going around.
But now that you mention it.
@pentaro This made my whole entire night. And I was already having a great night. Thank you for sharing!

Also, I never want to hear a straight dude complain about how you can’t compliment a woman on the street ever again, because you CAN. Just be respectful and nice and nonthreatening about it!
Ego tripping (+) Show more
Tonight, while wearing no makeup after working out, with sweaty hair, in grey heather leggings and an ugly beanie, some dude at least 10 years younger than me stopped me on the street to say he’d seen me when he was walking by my dance studio and thought I was “freakin’ adorable” so that’s my ego boost for like the next month.
(Granted, it was pretty dark outside, but I’ll take the win.)
Selfie, eye contact Show more
Went to the trouble of putting on eyeliner and lipstick for meeting a client today for the first time in ages, so of course they canceled less than an hour before.
Can’t let this paint go to waste on no one, though!

Anticapitalist Mastodon instance. Party means fun, not political party. But we're still political.
