I mean, on the one hand, you’ve got Sean Penn — who should go ahead and STFU — mansplaining that the MeToo movement has been “largely shouldered by a kind of receptacle of the salacious,” while Glenn Close is saying that we should separate the art from the artist where it concerns MeToo and that #MeToo could lead to an ‘overcorrection,.’ On the other hand, we’ve got Bryan Singer — who has been accused by multiple minors of sexual abuse and rape — in negotiations to direct Red Sonja, so what’s up with that overcorrection, Glenn Close? Because I’m not seeing it. (Collider)

Meanwhile, the President had sense enough today to listen to his advisors and not object to hearings for Christine Blasey Ford, but Don Jr.? Oh, he’s just trash. (The Root)

Leslie Marmon Silko’s Ceremony has been on dAvid’s bookshelf for a couple of years. He forced himself to read it for the CBR10 Book Bingo Reading Challenge ‘Backlog’ category to complete a bingo, and he reached his first-ever Cannonball with the review. "Though it is a novel, it does contain a great deal of poetry, both in the form and language of small interludes of Native American legends, and in the prose itself, some of the most beautiful I’ve read." Are you familiar with this classic of Native American literature? (Cannonball Read 10)

1am and the cheat meal sushi train 🍣 🚂 rolls along like an unstoppable force. Despite the fact that I wound up passed out on the couch like a wounded buffalo after destroying sushi — this documentary WONT YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? about the iconic “Mr. Rogers” is excellent. Highly recommend. He was a very special and one of a kind man. #CheatMealSunday #DontCheatYourself #TreatYourself #SushiTrain

I just love that The Rock’s “cheat meal” is like a five-person feast.
