Are you angry about the current state of the world and how COVID-19 is being handled by elected officials? Just wait until you hear about how they're handling the Earth.

This month, the Environmental Protection Agency basically late night FaceTimed all of the major corporations and oil companies in the United States and said, "Hey guys, I know this whole quarantine thing is rea–lly harshing your unlimited profit vibe, so here's a free pass to just like, pollute as much as you want–as a treat." Because the country is so wrapped up in navigating this corona chaos, the Trump administration has begun quietly undoing decades of protections against wide range environmental degradation without consequences. This is SUPER bad news, because not only does pollution worsen public health substantially, it also accelerates climate change, which is the chronic illness underlying coronavirus's acute symptoms.

Climate change is complicated. It's tied into pretty much every system of oppression you can imagine, and its sneaky nature proves hard to communicate because it affects communities in ways that aren't usually overt. There is no global warming mascot, no fire breathing antagonist that clomps up and down your neighborhood screaming, "THE END IS NIGH!" Rather, it shows up disguised as increased respiratory and water-born illnesses, reduced crop yield, and displaced refugees crossing borders— things that belong to other departments in the state house who are much more worried about the here and now than the then and there. Sometimes climate change declares itself like a rude dinner guest: barraging the world with floods, hurricanes, and fires. But as both the US president and the Prime Minister of Australia have attested, that's, like, totally unrelated—except it couldn't be more related.

So, how do we fight this beast with 1,000 heads? Where do we even start? And how the f*ck are we supposed to get anything done when there's a motherf**king GLOBAL PANDEMIC actively ruining all of our lives?

Here is some good news. One: We're all stuck at home, which gives us a lot of time to mess around on TikTok, but it also gives us a lot of time to learn something new. Two: it's Earth Month, which means that every environmental organization is running at 100mph trying to pump out as much radicalized educational content as possible. This is a very specific intersection in history in which you now have both the time and resources to go from a generally freaked out layperson to a radicalized and prepared activist. Knowledge is power, and if you know where to look, the Internet is just teeming with knowledge.

So, as you heat up that fourth box of Mac & Cheese, here are some ways you can learn to dismantle oppressive structures and tear down the establishment without even brushing your teeth.

READ

Congratulations! You opened a book today after staring at it for 2 weeks. Bonus points if it's written by a person with the first name Naomi.

1. This Changes Everything - Naomi Klein

Naomi Klein has been researching the environment since way before it was "cool" and "sexy" to care about the Earth. This book examines the way that major corporations just literally vomit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere without nearly enough measurement or regulation.

2. Merchants of Doubt - Naomi Oreskes

This book shows how the same guys that affected public opinion on cigarettes and health way back when are the same guys who are spewing misinformation about the climate crisis. This book will show you that climate change needs a public relations specialist just as much as any of the Kardashians.

3. On Fire: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal - Naomi Klein

As our world starts to look like the meme of that dog saying, "This is fine," Naomi Klein delineates how the Green New Deal has the opportunity not only to save our planet, but the livelihoods of the people that inhabit it.

    DO

    Now that you've gleaned all of the materials to make you angry, it's time to act. Instead of giving yourself bangs or trying to put on a T-Shirt while doing a handstand, here are some actions you can do to impact the fate of the world.

    1. Divest

    In this era of "economic uncertainty," the last thing you want to think about is probably your investments, but one of the most powerful ways to bring about a just transition to renewable energy is to divest from fossil fuels. So if you partake in the capitalist crapshoot that is the stock market, it is possible to take any investments you may have had in oil/coal/natural gas and transition them to sustainable industries. An awesome resource for that is right here.

    2. Grow Food

    During WWII, victory gardens—which were planted in every available plot of land across the U.S.—produced around 40% of the fresh vegetables for the country. Citizens started their own grass-roots movement in the most literal sense of the word, and small-scale farming brought communities together in one of the most uncertain times in modern US history. Flash forward to today, when going to the grocery store feels like stumbling into the gates of Mordor, growing your own food ensures a cheap (read: free) healthy meal and a more intimate relationship to the natural processes that produce it. You could also start composting too, if you really wanted to get crazy. Here's a link to help you grow food from scraps.

    3. Contact Elected Officials

    Think about how many emails you get from Macy's or Oriental Trading and how annoying they are. Now think about how annoying 50,000 emails about your elected duty to protect the literal earth we live on would be. You can find your local elected officials here.

    4. Virtual Strike

    WE'RE TAKING TO THE STREETS! AND BY THE STREETS I MEAN OUR LAPTOPS! This year is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, a day in which youth (and non-youth!) across the world were planning on flooding public places, disrupting the peace, and demanding that business NOT continue as usual. Now that business is most certainly not continuing as usual, the strikes are taking place virtually–with speakers, trainings and performances from all over the world. The demands remain the same, the delivery is just a little more socially distant. More info here.

    Obviously, there are 85,000 other ways to get involved, fight the power, and save the planet. But, hopefully this millennial list will be just enough to open Pandora's sustainably sourced box and send you tumbling into the beautiful, chaotic, brave world of climate justice.

    Welcome to the age of digital activism–don't forget to unmute your mic.

    I Saw "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood," and I Was Right About Tom Hanks

    He isn't good enough to do Mister Rogers justice, but that's okay

    TIFF

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is a good movie.

    Let's get that out of the way right off the bat, before there's any more confusion. It may even be great. It's sweet and charming, and it plays with the medium in clever and interesting ways. It tells a story that's worth being told, and if you have it in you to have your heart warmed, you should go see it. You won't be disappointed. But last week I wrote an article rebutting some popular press items that seemed to be suggesting that Tom Hanks was just as nice as Fred Rogers. I took issue with the idea, and dug into my deep and abiding love of Mister Rogers to make my case.

    A lot of people disagreed. They were understandably defensive, because Tom Hanks is a famously lovely man. So now that I've seen the movie, I feel an obligation to follow up with those people just to say: You were wrong. Tom Hanks still isn't good enough to play Mister Rogers.


    comments on Hanks I get it, but you're still wrong


    As it's been pointed out to me, an actor's virtues do not need to align with the virtues of the person that actor portrays. The real Erin Brockovich fought as a tireless advocate for the men, women, and children made ill by corporate greed and negligence, while Julia Roberts, who played her in one of her breakout roles, is simply a talented actress. For that part, talent was enough. The reason I fixated on this issue for Hanks' performance as Fred Rogers, is that, unlike Brockovich, Fred Rogers was an icon of my childhood, and there has been a concerted effort to sell Hanks as just as nice—just as good—as Mister Rogers himself. It seems to be the main reason he was chosen for the role in the first place, which is fundamentally misguided, and also happens to be incorrect. It's misguided in that Hanks' portrayal lacked other important merits; and it's incorrect, because there is likely no actor on Earth as nice as Fred Rogers.

    tom hanks as mister rogers

    It may seem uncalled for to disparage Tom Hanks' merits. He's a great actor, and he clearly put a lot of work into getting the performance right. He manages to capture much of Mister Rogers' warmth and presence, which is a tall order and undoubtedly more than most actors could do in his place. But the real Fred Rogers was an incomparable icon of warmth and presence. That is the sum of who he was as a human and as a performer—kindness personified. There was nothing in his bearing, his manner, or the content of his slow and meandering show that could ever distract from that core of kindness. He was thin and awkward, with sloping shoulders and an endearingly goofy smile. He was, in so many ways, a thoroughly ordinary man. It would be accurate to say that everything about him screamed "unassuming," except that nothing about Mister Rogers ever screamed at all.

    mister rogers awkward


    Tom Hanks, on the other hand, is not unassuming. Acting as a profession does not lend itself to unassuming figures, but some unknown and underfed actor could possibly have pulled it off. As for Hanks, he is an icon all his own: a star of action, comedy, and drama. He is too confident, has too much ease in his bearing, and too much sturdiness in his build to truly be unassuming. Mister Rogers weighed 143 pounds throughout his adult life. When Tom Hanks lost 50 pounds for Castaway, he still clocked in at 170. He does seems like someone with a natural aptitude for kindness, but also like someone who never had much of a reason to be any other way. Fred Rogers was bullied and sickly as a child. He had a natural aptitude for kindness, but he also had his share of sadness and anger. And because of that sadness and anger—not despite it—he chose to make kindness the sole vocation of his life.

    Nonetheless, it wouldn't be surprising if Tom Hanks were nominated for an Oscar for his performance. There isn't another big-name actor who could have done it better—though Hanks' son could have given it a shot—and the movie is truly lovely. It's framed as an episode of Mister Rogers on the topic of forgiveness—complete with grainy footage and scale-model establishing shots.

    Lloyd Vogel is the real journalist who learned forgiveness through the events depicted in the film, and you can see him describe his relationship with Fred Rogers in the delightfully sweet and tear-jerking documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor. But in this film he's played affectingly by Matthew Rhys, and his story becomes a parable told for our benefit. Hanks speaks directly to the audience, explains to us what forgiveness means, looks us in the eye as his charming self, and asks us to think of the people who "loved [us] into being." He doesn't quite inhabit Mister Rogers, but the movie lets us in on a secret: We can still like him just the way he is.


    mister rogers like you


    As Joanne Rogers tells Lloyd Vogel, Fred was not a saint. If he was, then the model he set would be unattainable. He was a man–a great man, but one whose greatness is within reach if we simply devote ourselves, as he did, to kindness. He was a man who taught us that, even when things are not okay, we are okay—precious even—just as we are.

    Gregory Allen Howard's Harriet Tubman biopic opened at the end of October after nearly 25 years of discussion and work.

    Recently, Howard dusted off a memorable quote from the 1990s, when the movie was first in talks. Apparently, a studio executive suggested Julia Roberts, a white woman, play Tubman, the legendary black abolitionist.

    HARRIET | Official Trailer | Now Playingwww.youtube.com

    "I was told how one studio head said in a meeting, 'This script is fantastic. Let's get Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman,'" Howard said in an interview with Focus Features, republished in the LA Times on Tuesday. "When someone pointed out that Roberts couldn't be Harriet, the executive responded, 'It was so long ago. No one is going to know the difference.'"

    "The climate in Hollywood … was very different," Allen added, crediting two recent box office smash hits with creating space for change. "Two films really changed the climate in Hollywood to allow Harriet to be made," he said. "When 12 Years a Slave became a hit and did a couple hundred million dollars worldwide, I told my agent, 'You can't say this kind of story won't make money now.' Then Black Panther really blew the doors open."

    Representation in Hollywood has long been a contentious topic, and despite performative diversity and major successes for actors and directors of color, recent studies have shown that the state of the film industry is still abysmal. In 2018, the Observer reported, "Not only do Hollywood films still disproportionately showcase white, cisgender, heterosexual men, executives and authority figures on every tier of the industry haven't even deigned to experiment with telling stories from different perspectives to any tangible degree."

    Naturally, the Internet had a lot to say. Most lamented the utter horror of seeing Julia Roberts and Harriet Tubman in the same headline, but the story really only highlights what we already knew: Hollywood, like the nation at large, has a racism and whitewashing problem, and always has.

    Women Lead the Emmys Noms: Beyonce, "Fleabag," and "Russian Doll" Sweep the List

    This year's Emmys nominations favored female-created shows.

    This year's Emmys nominations list has made headlines because many of the selected shows are actually really high-quality television.

    It's noteworthy for another reason: Women (whether female actors, writers, creators, or otherwise) are at the forefront of the majority of the shows under consideration.

    Leading the pack is Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the writer and creator of not one but two Emmy nominated shows: Killing Eve and Fleabag. Another show in talks for a win is Russian Doll, the breakout Netflix hit created by and starring Natasha Lyonne. Naturally, Beyoncé also scored six nominations for her Netflix Homecoming special.

    Not only do all these shows have female creators: they also star women above the age of 30. Amidst a Hollywood crowd that notoriously snubs this demographic, or writes them into restrictive roles, it's refreshing to see women so well-represented in the nominations list (which could perhaps use more diversity in general).

    Don't worry, though: Men were still represented in this year's nominations. Craig Mazin's disaster drama Chernobyl scored 19 nominations, and Game of Thrones scored an incredible 32, despite terrible reviews of its last season. On the other hand, Julia Roberts was snubbed for her role in Veep, while Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and (thankfully) The Big Bang Theory received almost no recognition.

    Whatever happens, this means that more people will be prompted to bask in the glory of Russian Doll, Fleabag, and Homecoming, and that's a blessing for everyone.

    Guide to Ruining Every Valentine’s Day Playlist

    You can reclaim every terrible rom-com and love song from romantic saps if you follow this guide to setting the right cynical mood.

    Deviant Art: sternsch

    Saint Valentine never gave a shit about the marriage of young lovers.

    And since he's been headless for 2,000 years, he certainly doesn't care about those of us who will die alone and half blind from binging Netflix in the dark while drowning our sorrows in Orange Vanilla Diet Coke. Hollywood has already sullied the Valentine name — for both of the men named Valentine who were randomly executed by Romans before we based this irrelevant holiday on them — by creating monstrously bad plots about unrealistic relationships and daring to say "#goals."

    So rather than wasting energy on an "anti-Valentine" stance, why not fully lean into this wretch of a holiday with the most cliche entries on every watchlist and playlist in existence? You just have to set the right kind of mood to enjoy their absurdity. Here are the top seven ways to spend Valentine's Day when you'd rather die alone than learn to tolerate a lover's back sweat:

    1.WATCH: When Harry Met Sally

    YouTube

    WHILE...trimming your cat's nails. Just because it's an outdated and formulaic rom-com doesn't mean you can't still enjoy this slice of bubble gum cinema without shame! Just be sure to appreciate that life is also terror and blind panic — unless you also live in a movie featuring well-maintained college friendships and successful careers immediately after graduating.

    2. LISTEN: "You Belong to Me" by Patsy Cline

    The Art Stack

    THEN...call your dad for the first time since finishing college, but play Simon & Garfunkel's "Sound of Silence" into the phone without saying a word. Because life is about balance.

    3. WATCH: Pretty Woman

    Hollywood.com

    WHILE...working from home just to wait for the plumber to come by "between 12 and 6 PM" on a week day. After two days of rescheduling, the company will call to confirm your name, and you'll channel Julia Roberts: "What do you want it to be — come fix my fucking sink!"

    4. LISTEN: "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran

    IMDB

    WHILE... setting fire to an ex's house. Lyrics that say, "Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars / Place your hand on my beating heart" sound like a survival anthem if there ever was one.

    (DISCLAIMER: We at Popdust do not condone arson in any shape or form. Please note that "arson," as defined by New York State, is the "intentional damage to a building or motor vehicle by causing an explosion or a fire" and is a felony under the law.

    (We also don't condone listening to Ed Sheeran).

    5. WATCH: The Wedding Singer

    E! News

    WHILE...Nothing. Drew Barrymore is goddamn delightful.

    6. LISTEN: "I Have Nothing" by Whitney Houston

    Netflix

    THEN...watch the Netflix documentary Tent City, U.S.A. It's about a homeless community in Nashville, Tennessee where people have nothing. Houston's lovely lyric, "Stay in my arms if you dare," is probably what inhabitants told each other while the local authorities attempted to tear the compound down. What? Not everything is about you and your lonely life.

    7. WATCH: Titanic

    Dexati

    WHILE...guessing Rose's age. How old is Jack? Are they teenagers? Maybe it's for the best; they would've ended up on Teen Mom. It would've been a matter of time before Rose stopped finding class differences sexy, anyway.

    Born: Rhinebeck, New York

    Occupation: Actress, singer

    Status: Single

    Children: 0

    www.tanikal.com

    Emma Roberts is an on-screen success, stemming from her childhood start, famous family, and true talent in her own right. From her debut in 2001's Blow to her dozens of film and TV roles thereafter, Roberts is a shining example of a former child star gone right in Hollywood. Perhaps she'll follow in her aunt Julia's (yes, Julia Roberts) footsteps and become one of the most beloved actresses of her time, but for now, Roberts is doing just fine. Here's more to know about the 27-year-old and why she's on top of her game.

    Nickelodeon Newbie

    images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com

    After her role in Blow, Roberts made her way to the small screen, starring as Addie Singer on Nickelodeon's Unfabulous for three years. She recorded an album during this time, proving her talent was made for more than just TV. As a teen star, Roberts developed a devoted fan base, following her career path every step of the way.

    Making (more) Movies

    www.gannett-cdn.com

    Like her acting dad ( Eric) and aforementioned aunt, Roberts lights up the screen. She has that girl-next-door quality paired with a hint of sizzle and sex appeal. As she's grown into a woman, the roles may have changed, but Roberts' love of acting is evident by her dedication and delivery. From Nancy Drew to Scream 4 to We're the Millers to Billionaire Boys Club, Roberts shows she's diverse and simply delightful. The roles keep pouring in and audiences are applauding.

    Still Time for TV

    www.gannett-cdn.com

    Just like her many movie roles, television has taken to the actress too. Shows including the American Horror Story franchise and Scream Queens have transformed Roberts from her Nickelodeon persona into what's current and cool. Popular among fans of all ages, Roberts' appeal is universal.

    A-List Apparel

    Roberts is always spot-on when it comes to style. She's gorgeous no matter what she wears, but it's always fun to play with fashion. Take a peek at some of her made-for-the-A-list looks.
