Sense8 has been cancelled by Netflix on the first day of Pride Month. :(((( Also, to nobody's surprise, Drumpf pulled the US out of the Paris Climate Accord, because America first 

I'm going to go write. Need to not be in this world for a bit.

ETA: I just donated to All Out. Just my usual monthly lunch money, but a little more proactive than making futile fist shaking posts.


Wait, what

Anybody else love the original Underworld movies? I loved how there were species weaknesses that the other exploited (Silver vs. UV light) and how they were given an origin backstory. Plus I love a good forbidden fruit supernatural romance. But I think I must have forgotten an awful lot because I was terribly confused when I checked out the Blood Wars sequel. 

Blood Wars and Awakening spoilers maybe )


Also, I forgot to say I also watched Hidden Figures a couple weeks ago and it was WONDERFUL. I loved Mary the most:

"Mary. It's Sunday. Have some shame."
"I will not."

I love how they showed just how many people are involved in getting something up into space! I loved how all these incredible WoC got their own arcs and how starkly racial inequality was depicted right from the get-go. Just the visceral terror of three women who did nothing wrong in the face of a police officer, and then the surprise ending of them chasing him down. XDDD I also loved how they tried to disguise racism with sexism throughout, too, because it was the more acceptable version of the -isms. How Kirsten Dunst's character was never anybody except Mrs. Mitchell --her husband's name.


Also it's ruling at box office too, so HAHAHA. THERE IS SOME JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD.


Like, it's telling that when Obama was president, the conservatives were buying guns to protest with their dollars, and now that Lord Dampnut is in, the liberals are buying books. (There are two kinds of people...)
nrgburst: (baaaaaaa)
Every time I see a FB friend proudly declare that they've silenced all mention of politics on the feed because it's all just negging, I'm sort of amazed that they think they're privileged enough not to have any of this affect them at all. Sure, the "get over it, it'll be fine" assholes are mostly white men, but the number of white women and MOC who put up statuses like this make me feel SERIOUSLY JUDGEY.


IT WON'T COST MUCH. JUST YOUR VOICE! THOSE POOR UNFORTUNATE SOULS (are not me hahahahaha)


Thank you to those who marched. Thank you to those who are organizing and fighting back. Here's a good list of places to send money if you also have no political voice/vote in any country. (Expat for too long.)


Jane the Virgin continues to delight. The humor (The puns! The total disregard for the 4th wall via the narrator!) and political snark is totally on point, as are all the character dynamics. I lovelovelove how every single character gets their own POV explored! Nobody is a foil or a prop- they're all their own people, with their own selfish (and unselfish) motivations, actively writing their own stories. This show totally deserves all the accolades it got in S1, although it makes me sad that the ratings remain lackluster. :(((

Anyway, this GIF of Jane pretty much sums me up right now:
