746 King George St intersects Meir Shaham St in Jerusalem. Shaham means Granite and I live in NH, the granite state, lolol

but also I did the square root of 746, and it's 27.31

if you put in 27 N 31 E you end up here

Medium: A Past That Never Existed, a Future That Will Never Arrive - Lessons from watching every single Hallmark holiday movie

It is a cruelty of America that the nostalgia that reared us all is one that only ever truly applied to one demographic in one span of time; that every story we tell ourselves about the possibility of this country is one that ends with the home, family, community, and security depicted in these movies; and that, for a lot of people, this is the closest they’ll get.

"Hauntology" is a great word, though "Hauntstalgia" would be more accurate.

I've been saying for decades that Hallmark movies are literal propaganda.

I was looking through one of my old editorial cartoon collections from the 90's just this afternoon and it was scary how many of the cartoons were still 100% relevant.

Also, it was bizarre to see Aslin's original prototypical US gun violence cartoon (I can't find a copy online with a quick search, but it was basically a US flag with red-tinted rifles for the stripes and bullets for stars) in response to Columbine, with our latter-day knowledge of how many variations of those he would go on to make in the twenty years to come.

I want to say that realizing next year will be the twentieth anniversary of the modern era of angry young white guys carrying out spree shootings (obviously I know there were angry white guy spree shootings before Columbine) made me feel old, but honestly it just made me feel really, really tired.
