We build castles with our hands / On a solid ground they stand / They’re our shelter from the storm / Keep us safe and keep us warm

Look, it had to be done. Multilingual songs are thematically on-point for obvious reasons, and “sparkly, magical, gay” is this world’s whole aesthetic.

In other news, check it out, I have one of these now:
Just finished listening to The Gateway: a 6-part podcast series about “Teal Swan, a new brand of spiritual guru, who draws in followers with her hypnotic self-help YouTube videos aimed at people who are struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts.”
(So if you don’t want to read a long post about those things, you should bail out here.)
I’d never heard of Teal before this, and I still don’t know anything about her beyond what’s in this report. But I do know a few things about psychiatry that aren’t in the series.
And based on that…I have complaints.

Rowan: . . . Yeah. That.

Rhodey: I made it!
Eesh, big brother, your back looks terrible. It’s all bruises on top of blisters on top of bruises.
Rowan: Hey, there’s bone and muscle and feathers underneath it . . . somewhere.
Rhodey: I know, I know. You want some lotion on it?
Rowan: Rosie already offered.
Rhodey: This isn’t Rosie’s brand! This is also used at the hospital.
