And Now: Some Very Unwelcome News Regarding Peeps. (It's the Peeps & Pepsi promotion.)

A good rule of thumb: the more interest management takes in workers’ use of the bathroom, the more that job is going to suck. [more inside]

Green Frontier: All Episodes Season 1, Ep 0
I would strongly prefer this thread to be retitled with the Spanish name, Frontera Verde. (Wikipedia) Frontera Verde is a Colombian crime thriller web television miniseries. (IMDB): “When a young Bogotá-based detective gets drawn into the jungle to investigate four femicides, she uncovers magic, an evil plot and her own true origins.” A Colombian Netflix series, 8 episodes, set at the Colombian-Brazilian border, and shot in Spanish, Portuguese, and indigenous languages. Combines police procedural with Latin melodrama, an acid Western sensibility similar to the French adaptation of Giraud and Charlier’s Blueberry graphic novels, Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, Jodorowsky, the countercultural The Teachings of Don Juan books, and elements of Herzog’s Aguirre. It is a dense text. [more inside]
