Ordered the final book and it arrived today. In an unprecedented effort of self control, I managed a single sketchbook painting before giving in and reading for the next 4 hours. 

IT WAS SO GOOD. GUYS. THIS SERIES. IT'S THE BEST. IT WILL DESTROY YOU.

I should probably try and do some actual work now.

  • So my twitter account seems to have been hacked, since I was suddenly following 1000 or so accounts.I painstakingly unfollowed, only to watch random people get followed before my eyes, without me doing anything. IDK how or why such a pointless hack exists, but whatever. My twitter account is now deactivated. I never used it anyway.
  • Love this: Sam Storyteller's Rewriting Firefly
  • Shutdown LK Hamilton - She's trolling us isn't she? It's like that Joaquin Phoenix/Casey Afleck stunt. It's going to turn out to be an elaborate performance piece. Deliberately destroying her writing. Picking up the pieces that are the most awful, rewriting them in particular. Cutting out anything good, writing more of the worst. She's actually honed it. It was a process. There was dross in amongst the good, then more dross and the good dropped to mediocre. And then it was awful amongst the bad and now it's ALL AWFUL. I think. I think I'm in awe. I think she might just be the Antichrist. Wow.
  • Undoing Maleficent - So wait, giving depth and complexity to female characters is 'undoing' them? You'd rather have them remain beautiful cyphers? Their two dimensionality lending them... what? Better fap value? Because messy real people with ups and downs and good and bad don't fantasise so well? Ok, that's inflammatory of me, STILL THOUGH. I call bullshit. (Also, what trend? Wicked and this? Two movies? Srsly?) It's all well and good to call for 'new characters' but if the execs are going to greenlight new characs it's gonna be 'white male antiheroes' a la every single show on tv right now. Not 'complex female villains without an existing fanbase'. If we want interesting female characs on our screens, then we have to look for already famous ones, no one will take the risk on new ones because the entire industry is loaded against us. So, you know. Fuck off Mr internet writer guy.
  • So I have Good Wife thoughts, looking back at the characters and how they've grown and looking at the different friendships, and looking at what chances they've missed along the way and which they've leapt on, and putting things in perspective and so on and so forth. but right now whenever I think about the show, it's either CAPSLOCK SCREAMING. or it's me curled up in the foetal position crying. SO. MAYBE LATER. WHEN I HAVE PUT MY HEART BACK TOGETHER.

Ultimately I was spoiled for the main thing I knew I'd hate. The other things I disliked were mostly ignorable and though they take up space here, in terms of how many watching minutes were devoted to them? They were outnumbered by the fun, positive elements. I just find it easier to talk about and take apart the things that I didn't like than the things I did. I'M SORRY GUYS. THE GLASS IS HALF EMPTY. Overall, like, watch it? For sure. Have fun. But the thing you know you'll hate. Yeah. You gonna hate.

The good, the bad and the ugly. Spoilers under the cut )

OH MY FUCKING GOD.

This is not a story about Glee, guys, I'm not even in Glee, I barely know what these characters look like. This is a story about FANDOM. Fandom and fans and all the fucking awesome and all the fucking shit. It's about superheroes and people who are heroes and people who are fucking villains and victims and abusers and rescuers and fucking everything. Just. UGH. Words cannot express. Fucking read it, and then cry your fucking heart out.

IT'S THREE IN THE FUCKING MORNING. I AM SOBBING LIKE A FUCKING BABY. FANDOM. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME?

THIS IS WHY I'M HERE. THIS IS WHY I'M FUCKING HERE.

LOOPER!!

 OH MY GOD, GUYS. OHMYGOD.

Not at all the silly actioner I was expecting from the trailer and the synopsis. This shit is fucking epic. Even A liked it, and he's like, the queen of Judgey McJudgeyness. Especially for time-travel.

I will never doubt Rian Johnson again. This man is the shit. He's the new Terry Gilliam. Go forth and worship.

I was going to wait and post this with the rest of my tv thoughts, but then I watched 3x13 and I needed to share right away.
