Pat Benatar on Charmed? Hells yes!
My brain is telling me that there is potential for a well told story here.
My heart is telling me to punch someone in the face then curl up in a ball on the floor and sob.
There’s something in Flight from the Man of Steel soundtrack/score that is taking me back to Run Free from Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is. Maybe it’s just that Hanz Zimmer composed them both and that he has a certain style?
And suddenly, in a week where things were looking pretty grim for the men of Australia, Chief of Army David Morrison arose to kick some derrière.
I would like to see this played in public at regular intervals, perhaps with a “Men of Australia” introduction. Repeat offenders will have Lt Gen Morrison come around to your house and yell at you until you spontaneously combust.
Rapists and sexual abusers and bullies and sexists: Lt Gen Morrison is going to SMASH YOU (with words and sternness).
“If that does not suit you, then get out. You may find another employer where your attitude and behaviour is accepted, but I doubt it. […] If you become aware of any individual degrading another, then show moral courage, and take a stand against it.”
Whoah. That is… an impressive bit of plain-speaking.
(tw for a white military man being very fiercely angry straight into the camera. However, if it makes a difference to your well-being: he is being very fiercely angry about rape culture, and the people under his command who perpetrate or permit it.)
Would that leadership everywhere always spoke so plainly about harassment/rape/abuse/whatever-the-details-of-the-original-context.
And I am surprisingly okay with not knowing the details of the original context. He made it very plain that there would be no rules-lawyering over whether the original context stopped precisely here or precisely there, and thus there would be no rules-lawyering over whether this adjacent of-the-same-piece behavior falls inside or outside of the scope. It falls inside. And it is unacceptable.
Lt General Morrison is having NONE. OF. YOUR. SHIT.
“No one has ever explained to me how the exploitation or degradation of others enhances capability or honors the traditions of the Australian army.”
I want this printed on t-shirts.
Is there any organization/website out there that does analysis of female characters in scripted television? For instance, percentage of (non-reality) shows by network that have one or more female leads.
Actually, I’d be curious to see numbers on other minority representations as well. Gender, ethnicity, sexuality, economic status, education level, etc. Anybody know if this info exists somewhere?
In reintroducing myself to the world of DC superheroes for the first time since I was a kid, I’ve noticed that one thing seems to hold true through all versions of Batman.
Pairing him up with Superman always makes him seem like the grumpy old man who yells at the neighborhood kids to get off his lawn. It’s hilarious.
I’m not saying an animated talking crab singing a song called Kiss The Girl made me gay. All I’m saying is The Little Mermaid was my first movie and now I’m a lesbian with a thing for redheads.
I used to hate myself. Then I realized I wasn’t the fucking problem.
Damn it. Which one of you that I follow keeps reblogging Voyager stuff? Now I have to put that on my list of shows to rewatch/marathon.
I’m never going to be able to go outside again.
What started as a Broadway genre Pandora channel has gone full 90’s Disney and I’ve completely reverted in my cubicle.
Even if I’m at my desk and logged into my computer at 7:30, that doesn’t mean I’m ready to answer your work related questions. If the coffee cup is still full, walk away and come back later.
A quick, 4 word search is all it takes for guaranteed good dreams.
“Julie Andrews stay awake”
If I ever get access to a time machine I’m going to do silly things like go to the opening nights of my favorite Disney movies and quote all the lines/sing all the songs to freak people out.
Oh my god. Leo with pregnancy symptoms. I love this show.
