You know The Warriors? Okay now imagine it’s not full of interesting characters, and it’s destroying your monthly budget.
4 Reasons You’ll Never Escape Your F***ing Cable Company

#3. You Probably Have No Other Cable Company to Choose
If you had a bad experience with one of the big companies, you can switch to another, right? For most of the country, no. During a recent congressional hearing on a Comcast-Time Warner merger, the Comcast CEO actually said that the merger would not squeeze any competitors out because each company already sticks to its territory. Just like gang members, or the most boring game of Risk ever.

Darren Aronofsky Adapting Futuristic ‘MaddAddam’ Book Trilogy As HBO Series
I am partially excited and partially terrified.
Atwood + Aronofsky + HBO should = excellence but sometimes the big and little screens tend to remove relevant subtleties and unnecessarily Anglocise or beautify characters to make it more palatable to its target market.

    "The Ghost of a Flea" by William Blake, as tattooed on the back of "The Bridge" character Eleanor Nacht (Franka Potente). Kindly identified by tumblr genius anon-hex.
Painting synopsis from the Tate Gallery: John Varley – an artist, astrologer and close friend of Blake – reported in his Treatise on Zodiacal Physiognomy (1882) that Blake once had a spiritual vision of a ghost of a flea and that ‘This spirit visited his imagination in such a figure as he never anticipated in an insect.’ While drawing the spirit it told the artist that all fleas were inhabited by the souls of men who were ‘by nature bloodthirsty to excess’. In the painting it holds a cup for blood-drinking and stares eagerly towards it. Blake’s amalgamation of man and beast suggests a human character marred by animalistic traits.

Yes! That’s it! I feel better for knowing and yet remain wholly unsettled by Eleanor.
