So far, it's what it is

Serious subjects and fandoms and silly things may vary. I post everything from questioning American-centric thinking in global media to hockey to Canadian-centric stuff to politics, social issues, racism, sexism, and many other -isms to cute images of cats and dogs and sometimes some no1curr stuff too and whatever reblogs look interesting or cute or something.

Unnecessary “fillers” in our speech. I’d rather have “like” than up-talking, though (if we had to choose one, that is). Ewwww, up-talking. Then again, a combination of the two would render me homicidal maniac.


Like, did you ever notice? That, like, the speech patterns people, like, think are stupid?  Are, like, commonly associated with, like, women?
And, like, there’s this thing? Where, like, women aren’t supposed to be, like, assertive? So they, like, qualify their speech? Because, like, we’re not supposed to, like, stand by our opinions?

1) humiliate women so they don’t feel qualified to speak authoritatively about anything
2) humiliate women for speaking in such a way that reflects how you treat her
3) laugh, you are superior because you don’t use words like “like.”  It isn’t as if being a huge stupid asshole has ever made you worse than a woman who speaks with verbal tics.  

The nail. It is hit on the head.

When we went to see CATWS

my friend was totally taken aback by me thinking Bucky in The Winter Soldier has a great face and stuff, because she just wasn’t getting it.

Thank you, everyone, for validating my feelings that he is, indeed, freaking adorable.

(also, super-duper busy time of the semester right now even though I’m a grad so you’d think we’d totally be cool but nope, instead a business like no other busyness, so by the time I get time to Tumblrer at night yes this is about the deepest thoughts I have can me now. I can haz bedtime now?)

Thanks all for sticking around during this super busy and stressful time, when I’m just doing a bit of reblogging or commenting in the evening. You folks are awesome and I really can’t thank you enough for all the support and loveliness and thoughtfulness and cool stuff you bring!

Don’t usually have much swearing on this blog but… I mean, seriously, this guy manages to be mysterious even AFTER his reveal, and even more so.

That’s a really long way of saying “this guy’s cute”, isn’t it? Whateves.

let’s just appreciate the new outfit.

Ya, can’t appreciate the outfit.  That jacket looks so impractical for movement…

it looks really cumbersome

He’s not supposed to have sleeves! Ever!

I guess they’re going for that late 80’s Star Trek: The Next Generation “alien from a benevolent but troubled planet where one of them is actually super-evil” look?

@jakke said: I mean, the Captain America origin story is literally the personification of the military-industrial complex’s capacity to protect the little guys. Kind of difficult to present that uncritically.

Oh, yes, I certainly know it started out as good old xenophobic, racist propaganda. But the Avengers was fairly good in honoring the propaganda of Captain America only in the Loki-in-Germany scene, but even then it’s not just Captain America who stands up again Loki, and  Winter Soldier certainly did take a lot of it out, and actually turned it back to be introspective on itself, so I kind of love it.

@ladyfabulous said: It’s good! There is a bit of rah-rah America! to it, but it makes sense and they focus more on Hydra than the Nazis and the non-German Europeans aren’t just victims that need America to rescue them either. You should watch it; it’s great!

A lot of my family is German and Polish and well, considering what they did personally and what happened to them and that they weren’t hapless victims and the kind of work they did and how they suffered, it’s really hard to watch films that still follow 1940’s propaganda of “Germans = Nazis super soldiers, other Europeans = hapless oofs” besides just the fact that it’s grossly inaccurate.

Thanks for the feedback!

I really want to watch Captain America: The First Avenger now

but I really can’t stand movies that Hollywoodize war.

And I mean, part of what makes Cap 2 works is the relationship between Captain American and Falcon and Capt. America and Black Widow.
But like, Captain American and Bucky are pretty cute on their own.

Erg, I’m really overthinking watching a movie purely for two cute dudes, aren’t I?

But I don’t want to start watching it and then turn it off in disgust. LIke, I really loved how Cap 2 balanced a lot of the serious stuff out and good and bad guys from everywhere.

(I guess another way to put is, are all Americans seen as perfect saints and all non-German Europeans has helpless and all Germans as evil?)

So… on a scale of Terry Gilliam’s movies to Bill O’Reilly’s TV “news” show, where does it sit?

i feel u omg today i ate some salad someone made and it had fruit in it. i love salad and i love fruit salad but not FRUIT IN MY SALAD u feel me
I can stand strawberries, pears,  or oranges in some salads with very particular kinds of lettuce, but what else do they put in? Like, a random kiwi?
But this is even worse - that frosted “cake” that’s a watermelon that was going around FB and Tumblr, and now “pizza” that’s watermelon with slices of berries on it and what looks like shredded carrot “cheese” (I didn’t really bother to look closely)

STOP POSTING FRUIT SALAD AND CALLING IT CAKE, PIZZA, WHATEVER

It is FRUIT SALAD.

FRUIT SALAD IS WONDERFUL.

BUT IT’S NOT PIZZA, CAKE, ICE CREAM, OR WHATEVER.

When I want fruit salad, I want fruit salad. When I want the veggies, protien, and carbs from pizza, I have a pizza piled with that stuff. Sometimes I want the fruit, sometimes I want the pizza. These are both valid but super-duper different choices.

Also, there is nutritious pizza, cake, and ice cream. I’m not going to get into the problems with saying “now this is a truly healthy ____” on FB. I’m not I’m NOT.

I’m not. not not not.

No. NO, self, do not get into it.

This all-caps rant brought to you by the “shares” of these types of posts. 

Sorry.

Trevor Linden becomes the new Canucks President of Hockey Operations

…I hit “like” so fast I didn’t even realize I’d actually hit reblog instead of “like” for however long it takes for the reblog to pop up.
