Anyone know anything about this Item 47 movie
? Is it basically a way of getting people into watching SHIELD
? (Not that we
need any more encouragement). Also, am I wrong with the whole Benny and Claire/Bonnie and Clyde thing? I really liked the actress since Mean Girls
and True Blood
so I hope they keep them both somehow. Maybe in the tv show? (And he's the guy in Bring It On
y/y? AH those were the days).
Looking at more Marvel extras: The Loki/Hawkeye deleted scene
from Avengers - Firstly, that look up at 1:20? So deliberate and so wonderful. I could just EAT HIM. ALL OF HIM. (In a non creepy cannibal way. GDI HANNIBAL. YOU SCREW UP EVERYTHING.)
But also, the eyeball? That horrible, disgusting trick Loki pulled? Totally Hawkeye's idea.
Where is the fic that delves into all Clint's pain? HE MUST HAVE SO MUCH PAIN. SO FUCKING MUCH.
Also, I did not realise the whole Maria Hill kinda hates Nick Fury vibe they were going for. The alternate opening makes it more obvious, but rewatching Avengers just now, (which is an exercise in heartache btw. I just want to shout at the screen. NO LOKI. WHAT ARE YOU DOING? STOP IT. GET SOME THERAPY. BUY SOME ICECREAM. SOMEONE TELL THOR TO GIVE HIM A HUG. FFS.) and she's kinda pissed off at him from the get go. IS THERE GOING TO BE A SUDDEN BUT INEVITABLE BETRAYAL. BY A WOMAN. ZOMG HOW FUCKING GROUNDBREAKING. If they tie the creepy old white guys council into Avengers 2 by having Maria Hill turn.
UGH. JUST. UGH.
Iron Man 3 reaction:( STOP! Spoiler time... )
TGW( Finale reaction )
**( The Tempest review )
Watched the Anne Lister documentary with Sue Perkins. Perkins is funny. All I really know her from isJust a Minute
and she does come across as a bit smug there. Sort of, playing it for points not the funnies. But she was pretty good in this. I mean, they're doing the usual modern documentary thing of having the presenter be about a 1/4 involved and the 3/4s on the actual historic person. It can come across less like 'queer people through the ages' and more 'LOLOL lesbians talking about lesbians'. But only a little. And anyway, the historical facts were all fascinating.
NGL though I want to know more about half-Indian bastard Eliza. The poor discarded first love.
So, this recent news about the three girls kept in a house for ten years. (I'm not linking because it's fucking sick, but if you google Amanda Berry you'll probably find it)
I'm already not watching The Following
because this is a thing I do sometimes. Stop watching all my shows. (Oh hello Vikings
, I haven't seen you in a month)
But I don't think I want to go back to it. I don't want to to root for the men who keep women in cages. I don't want to to be so inured to such hideous, life shattering violence against women that I don't even see those TV victims as people. Just obstacles
I don't want to to be part of the culture that thinks it's okay to desensitise us to this shit. That teaches us to to see these women, not as people but as windows dressing. And I'm not going to suddenly stop loving the creepy cop/killer dynamic. But I've had it to here with all the fucking baggage that goes with it.
"I think that's a really creepy pairing... but hey, read what you like."
NO NO NO. Those are not two phrases that taste great together. It's either one or t'other. You are absolutely allowed to say you think something is creepy. Hannibal/Will? HELLA CREEPY. IN CASE I HAVE NOT MADE THIS OBVIOUS. THERE IS PEOPLE EATING. AND A DEER THAT I THOUGHT WAS A MOOSE BECAUSE APPARENTLY I CAN'T ANIMAL.
But you can't append that with 'but hey if you like it fine, (you weirdo). Because the 'you weirdo' will always be implied
because you just said it was creepy and didn't allow enough space for the tone of your argument to shift from OMG YUCK! to HEY ALL KINKS ARE AWESOME!
Just say them separately. Space them out. Let one exist and then the other.
GUYS. SHUTTUP. THIS IS A THING THAT MAKES SENSE. DON'T TELL ME I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO DOESN'T GET PISSED OFF BY THIS. I get far more pissed off by this backing and forthing than people outright saying my shipping preferences squick them out. I kinda get off on that shit. You think Young/Rush is the absolute pits? You think Wincest is goddamn disgusting? You can't stand creepy Harry/Snape non-con chan?
HAHAHA sucks to be you.
That shit rolls of my back. This
shit is passive aggressive.
(Disclaimer, yes I've probably done exactly this in that past. Whatever. I win at hypocrisy.)
