Lovely. Jasmyne Keimig
Just so you all are aware, if you weren't already, that automation is coming for us all. I do not look forward to the day that my job is replaced by an AI bot that generates memes or poetry.

Snapped this one as a reminder to myself to look up this phrase because I always forget what it means. From Merriam-Webster: "a person who is unacceptable or unwelcome." I just learned Claire Danes is considered a persona non grata in the Philippines for calling Manila a "ghastly and weird city."

Spotted right on 15th Ave.

This looks like a branded sticker, but I Googled the image and text (both forwards and backwards) but couldn't find anything. Looks cool.

"Kurt Russell"
Pretty sure this is Big Trouble in Little China-era Kurt Russell, but using this as an excuse to post a clip from one of my favorite movies that also happens to star the actor as a misogynistic psychopath.
