A snippet on Oedipus to Antigone [no mention of Richard Armitage]

Here. I admit this sort of comment annoys me (I tend to think of it as “cheap feminism”). Antigone is not a feminist play, in the least. However, it’s not the case that after watching a traditional staging of Antigone that we have no sympathy for her. Moreover, it’s been a frequent choice of play to perform in authoritarian / totalitarian situations as a subversive act, precisely because of what it says about the nature of justice and justice vs. law. What Elliott wants us to realize is more or less the main point of the play, so this kind of comment makes me a bit nervous.

This was me this morning, when dad scheduled his eye procedure for a rather early time. All’s well that ends well; hopefully this little piece of tension will evaporate from our lives for a while.

Lucas North (Richard Armitage) stares wearily at Sarah Caulfield as he makes some coffee for them both, in Spooks 8.5.

I used to call these the “thumbs of distraction.” I still love them.

I’ll keep praying, though.

For London. And for the family of the girl brutally murdered this morning in Virginia, on her way home from suhur, probably because she was a Muslim. May she reach Jannah and may we all cease our violence.
