I've never had much familiarity with Japanese folklore, and was quite surprised to come across the image of multi-tailed foxes when I started reading the comic Monstress a few years ago. Something about it really struck me as aesthetically weird.

I honestly feel kind of guilty having a normal life. Easy for me to lose hours doomscrolling, knowing that I'm lying to myself hoping that one more tank destroyed might matter.

Then appalled at how different my response is to this war against other wars- I've had friends who have come from equally hellish situations before, but their context hasn't hit me as hard. I tell myself that it's recognizing the buildings and old people on the images, two sets of my grandparents lived in buildings that looked just like the ones being shelled, they wore clothes like the ones on the old people fleeing.
My parents are intermittently beside themselves. My dad who hasn't touched a firearm in decades is muttering about having been good with a pistol, thankfully recognizes that he's too old. When I called my mom one night last week, she was just sitting there crying when the phone rang.

The demon that the stone holds back appeared (well a fictional versionof her didi) in (spoiler alert) Lovecraft Country

7: No! And now that I look at Monstress, in that case I think it was cats that had many tales, and I came across many-tailed foxes somewhere else.

Also the other species in the same genus as Tanukis are the most likely source of covid.

I admire that Japanese paganism is still productive: people can come up with new gods or spirits, make a little shrine, tell a few stories, and soon it's almost as canonical as any other.

25:

So, wait--are Grimes and Musk still together?

Yes. No. What do you mean by "together"?

"There's no real word for it," she begins. "I would probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we're very fluid. We live in separate houses. We're best friends. We see each other all the time.... We just have our own thing going on, and I don't expect other people to understand it." What matters, I offer, is that they're happy. So are they? "Yeah," she says. "This is the best it's ever been.... We just need to be free." They plan to have more children too. "We've always wanted at least three or four."

I didn't know there were nine-tailed foxes in Japanese folklore. They're a common evil spirit in Korean folktales, and weirdly, they're the subject of a lot of soap operas and movies (My Roommate is a Kumiho, My Girlfriend is a Kumiho, etc. -- mostly pretty terrible).

My first guess on reading the first line of the OP was that there was some stone in Japan that was historically where the most prominent people sentenced to execution were beheaded, and I wondered if this would be an impetus for making capital punishment totally illegal.

There was a nine-tailed demon released and no one seems to care, its like the murder hornets all over again.

More gossip about Grimes. Chelsea Manning would definitely be an upward move from Musk.

That's more or less my experience Mondays and Fridays in the office. We typically get 6-8 people on a building floor meant to accommodate 60. The vibe is very much "the world ended, no one told us, we few survivors are still writing web apps as if it mattered."
