I tend to be annoyed by a lot of 'anti insert Cause Du Jour-shaming campaigns. I mean acceptance is nice and all but some things are crappy and should be criticized, whether for aesthetic or medical reasons: whether it's anorexia or obesity, frex.

So, I *really* like this whole Strong is the new Skinny campaign that's been popping up recently. It undercuts the vast majority of crappy assumptions that are foundationally problematic to the current terms of the body image debate.

Inevitably it too is open to abuse - steroids and whatever - but that's just human nature.

Chow Yun Fat, a huge fucking budget, a directive to make a historical biopic.

And instead of Sun Tzu - you make a Confucius movie.

The technical term for this situation is 'bullshit.'

Going up to see the family, so spent a productive day laying the groundwork for buying the love of my tiny relatives.

1. Deadpool TPB
2. Cthulhu TPB
3. LEGO shenanigans.
4. Hand-puppet of a vomiting dog that can make 38 various farting sounds


Mercenary affection game is too strong.

Ok, so perhaps there's going to be another flawless movie this year, apart from GotG.
That's all right.

Just saw Transcendence. Despite the commercial and critical shellacking - quite good, I thought. Certainly the best problematization of 'singularity' that I've seen on screen. The whole "Crucifixion of the unknowable Saviour by the scared Humanity to whom it was bringing an eternal life, its forgiveness and resurrection" bit was a tad heavy-handed but that's to be expected, I suppose.

1. We've gone through a lot together, show. But there are limits. If this is the next pairing your are going to try and foist on the audience, we may not be able to remain buds.

2. The smoothest fucking Alpha in the entirety of nothing. It's not your fault, Scott. It's obviously a sorcerous toolbox.

3. Seriously? We are skipping straight past little things like diagnosis and going right to vivisection, huh?

4. Y'all need Jesus.

5. So basically Derek devolved as he got older. Which is not that much of a revelation, I guess...

6. "So I've been in Sunnydale Beacon Hills for a while now. Y'know what I've never noticed before? A big honking castle catacomb!"

7. Peter Hale is my spirit animal.

8. I know you did not just make light of the bat.

Want.

The series details the secret history of an occult organization called the Brotherhood of the Shield, with a history extending back to ancient Egypt.

The main story of the first issue is set in 1953 shortly after the death of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, during the height of the Cold War. Shield agents Nathaniel Richards and Howard Stark enlist a young man named Leonid with unspecified superpowers into the organization, taking him to Shield's High Council in the Immortal City under Rome.

The High Council reveals that they know "the final fate of Man", and their mission is to ensure nothing threatens the world before this occurs.

I'd be way more excited about Agent Carter (Period piece! Cold War shenanigans! Founder mythology!) if:

1. I found Hayley Atwell interesting.
2. It wasn't being marketed (probably honestly) as an anvil-like Message Show.
3. It was called The Howling Commandos and was a completely different series.

Watching Bradley Cooper transform for the Cris Kyle role is disconcerting (and impressive) as hell. The last two guys I can think of who pulled off that sort of thing were Russell Crowe and Christian Bale.

I am really ambivalent about waiting for the movie. Kinda imagine that's how all the Titanic fans felt. Want to watch everything except the ending.
