Journsplit: Encanto

We Don’t Talk About Bruno… except we do. In this episode, Aditi and Lionel discuss Disney’s Encanto, and how the epic music ties into a tale of generational trauma and each character’s struggle with it.

Politics (by Lionel)

A million people stood before Grant Bosman in Swansford Central Plaza. He spoke of empty promises, bizarre claims, and ridiculous ideologies. It was one man with a voice—a voice so heavy that it paradoxically shook the hearts of many and questioned norms. But amidst this absurdity, what captured everyone’s attention was that Bosman was standing to give a show, putting up the front that he was collaborative leader instead of playing hero. But that’s when he slowly spun the interest to his favor– the show he was giving turned out to be spectacular. Everyone was intrigued by the notion of paradise; and something about this average man with empty handsContinue reading “Politics (by Lionel)”

There were others, after him. The earth paid them no heed; after all, they were only human, fated to live and die, grow and bleed,Continue reading “Reservoir”
