I had a chance to see Little Women at the cinema. Greta Gerwig follows up Lady Bird with a fantastic adaptation that, I believe, enhances the original material. Great writing and directing. And phenomenal performances from Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh.

Interestingly the theatre was about 90% women.

Studio Ghibli’s catalogue is coming to Netflix outside the US/Canada (and Japan) from February onwards. I’m really excited about this! 🎉

Watchmen on HBO is astonishingly good, as a “sequel” of sorts I expected very little from it, and it delivered in spades.

Thanks to violent video games, gangs of geese are now roaming the countryside.

I'm a lawyer. I feel most competent in constitutional law. This means I'm constantly recovering from the trauma of being alive in these times.

In my doctoral work, I'm trying to understand constitutional claims outside courts - or the gulf between the Constitution of India & the constitution of India.

I'm currently teaching the law & science module to science undergrads, developing an RPG for children to work the Constitution democratically, and writing writing writing.

Although if Indian political twitter moves to Mastodon in a big way, it’ll be a big test for the way Mastodon currently deals with content warnings.

Sort of awesome to see non-technical people ask what Mastodon client to download. I recommend @tootapp for most people.
