1. This is the film that predicted Trump. I’m only sorta kidding. Watch the trailer. via @YouTube
2. Chauncey Gardner can not read or write, but he likes to watch TV. He speaks in simplistic sound bites. White people, especially rich ones, love him.
3. The only person who accurately sees what’s happening is a black woman. But no one listens to her.

Indiana Jones kept showing up on my Twitter feed over the last week thanks to #HATM and @SUEtheTrex

I’m here to offer a spirited archaeological defense of the original Indiana Jones movies in a short thread with five clear points (no I'm not willing to die on this hill)
1: The movies are fun. They’re nostalgic for many of us. I doubt many will argue with this point, but it’s really important. The fun aspect of the movies draws people into archaeology. If all we do is bash them, then we turn people away from our field.
2a: Archaeologists whine that Indy is a terrible archaeologist. But they’re using modern archaeological methods as a yardstick: save all cultural material, pay attn to context, etc

These movies were made in the ‘80s and were set in the ‘30s. We need to judge by those standards
