Profile picture description 

A yellow-headed caracara (Milvago chimachima) standing on top of a capybara (Hydrochoeris hydrochaeris).

The caracara is a bird with a white head and brown wings and has a yellow spot on its face which seems to blend with its beak.

The capybara is looking down to the right and the caracara is looking up the left, making up a very cool and dynamic picture.

comida NO vegana 

El desayuno de hoy fueron arepas :arepa1: :arepa2: con jamón, queso y huevo. Gustaron, lo cual siempre es un éxito notable para mí

I'm thrilled every time I see the smug eyes of the Great Bittern glaring at me

movie impressions: I Am Mother (2019) 

My first impressions were: "this is just a bunch of clichés" but also "it's nice that all the main characters are all women (and one female-coded android)."

movie impressions: I Am Mother (2019) 

"I Am Mother" has an interesting premise, impressive visual effects, and makes reference to many themes which then it doesn't explore. The world doesn't feel cohesive, even taking into account that this is a very small story within it (there's only three characters for almost all of the movie). The main theme is trust and the narrative does resolve the issue: the daughter asserts herself as capable of taking care of herself and the whole human species, and the mother supposedly learns to trust her and stops controlling her (but not really). I think maybe this story was not compatible with this world. I don't know, I just feel it could have done a lot more with a lot less.
