Last week, Skye Fitzgerald received an Oscar nomination for the only film in his career that he didn't enjoy making. It's not that the Portland-based documentary filmmaker isn't proud of Hunger Ward, which is up for Best Documentary Short Subject. But out of all the tough subjects he's tackled in his career, this was the hardest to bear witness to.

I think I must have caught the March Madness from Dave. 64 pastas; 1 champion. Voting takes place on instagram.

Wojnarowicz: F**k You F*ggot F**ker.” 

Irish priest gets stopped for speeding in Limerick.

Police officer smells alcohol & spots an empty wine bottle.

“Father, have you been drinking?”

“Ah, just water, Officer.”

“So why do I smell wine?” . . .

Priest looks at the bottle: “Jesus, Mary & Joseph. He's done it again!”

think i noted to myself if not outloud the uptick in stories about anti-asian violence in the last month or so. there were a couple of attacks locally. honestly thought it was overblown, not that it wasnt happening, just there was suddenly a lot of focus on it and you had to wonder if the facts on the ground jibed with the raised profile or if it was anecdotal. still dont know. stats bandied about seem to suggest absolutely an increase in harassment. not sure about incidence of violence but seems likely.

anyway. just saw this. will assume it is valid. the cop in charge of the locality in georgia where the crimes were committed was roundly mocked for suggesting the shooter was having a bad day before going on a murder spree in a bunch of asian massage parlors. meanwhile the internet dug up a group of photos on the cops facebook page which might suggest he may have a not so unconscious bias.
