shout out to all the American Horror Story fans!
I’m in the process of writing a research paper about the use of monsters in the horror genre of the media to highlight social themes that challenge normative ideas and I’m using AHS Murder House! specifically the “monsters” in AHS that threaten the Hetero-normative/Patriarchal American Family to create a real “American Horror”…
it’s due tomorrow along with a 10min oral presentation to the class about it… and I only started writing it today.. woot. go me.

"For the last 13 years Japanese photographer Miyoko Ihara has been taking pictures of her grandma, Misao, to commemorate her life. 9 years ago, 88-year-old Misao found a stray odd-eyed cat in her shed: she called it Fukumaru, hoping that “the god of fuku (good fortune) would come and everything will be smoothed over like maru (circle).” Miyoko has been photographing their beautiful friendship and the way they go about their daily routine ever since.”
