The Pickety Witch — Get Practical

Back in 2021, I had the opportunity to head to one of Prime Video’s sets to check out the filming of the title sequence for the new Lord of the Rings show, The Rings of Power. 90% sure they just wanted a human there to confirm that yes, it’s practical. The camera they shot on is so impressive that almost every second of it looks digital, but here’s how it was done.
While the video doesn’t break down the who what where and how of it all, it does give you a glimpse of the real life people working on the shoot and some of the metal pours!

There’s never a wrong time to learn about The Janes, but as Republicans across the country try to take down Roe v. Wade, now it’s especially pertinent. Now please join me in a group scream session. Then feel free to join me in continuing to throw money at Planned Parenthood. You can also look up local clinics in your area if you want to help independent clinics, or volunteer for any orgs in your area if you’re looking for ways to help.
Dudes? That’s a big “you too” here. We can’t do this alone.
Meanwhile, please enjoy this video of Biden telling a Fox News reporter what we’ve all been screaming for some time now.

My favorite moment of 2022 so far. @POTUS very appropriately reacting to Peter Doocy of Fox News.

Do I have my problems with the guy? Plenty.
Am I delighted by him calling a propaganda machine a stupid sonofabitch? Hard yes.
Who To Follow
There are so many incomparable Black women working behind the scenes in marketing right now. They make sure you see what’s up with all of your favorite shows across social media, and they do so in a largely thankless job that a lot of people don’t even know about.
Kayla Maria is crushing it over at Prime Video and FanologyPV as she works to bring attention to things like Diabolical and The Legend of Vox Machina.
Janelle Monique is playing to her own tune as an EP and Host over at iHeartRadio. Her most recent project? Bringing you the New Girl rewatch podcast of your dreams.
Whatcha Watchin?
Abbott Elementary and American Auto, at the moment. I held off on Abbott Elementary at first because I was worried the satirical look at the abysmal situations we put teachers through would make me sad. And it does! But it’s also quite funny. American Auto tickles my funny bone less, but it’s still an easy background show. Both head to Hulu the day after their episodes air.
Next Level Chef has also become a weekly watch. Gordon Ramsay saw The Platform and decided it needed to be a cooking show, basically.
The Legend of Vox Machina premieres on Prime Video this Friday and it is Great™. You don’t need to know about Critical Role and you don’t have to care about DnD to get in on the fun.
