Best song to break something while listening to: I’ve never actually tried, but “You Don’t Know” from Next to Normal always makes me want to scream and throw things.

Role I could play at this moment and nail: Vocally, Desiree Armfeld. Emotionally, Diana Goodman.

[CHARACTER] Zoisite.

Series: Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon

Kana: ゾイサイト
Romaji: Zoisaito

Role: Villain
Type: Humanoid
Alignment/Organization: Dark Kingdom
First appearance: Episode 14
Last appearance: Episode 35
Status: Dead
Voice actor: Keiichi Nanba

TRIVIA

  • He is named after the mineral zoisite, which was first known as saualpite.
  • Sailor Venus killed Zoisite in the manga. His death was postponed until episode 35 of the anime, though. Yet in that continuity, he was killed by Queen Beryl rather than by a hero.
  • In one of Naoko Takeuchi’s illustrations, Zoisite was romantically paired up with Sailor Mercury. Takeuchi never had the chance to explore the idea of Princess Serenity’s four guardian Sailor Senshi being involved with the Shitennou in the manga. While the first anime and the live-action adaptation both excluded the Sailor Senshi/Shitennou couplings, they were included in Sailor Moon Crystal.
  • Zoisite and Nephrite were the only two members of the Shitennou to have signature attacks with vocal calls. Zoisite shouted “Zoi” whenever he fired pink petals or energy at his opponent.
  • Zoisite did not ever pretend to be a civilian like Jadeite or Nephrite, but he did once disguise himself as Sailor Moon. A high quality collectible figure of Zoisite’s impostor Sailor Moon is available through Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line.
  • Kunzite and Zoisite’s romantic relationship was unique to the first anime.
  • In DiC’s English adaptation of the anime, Zoisite was female rather than male. Several other foreign language dubs changed the character’s gender as well.
  • Zoisite’s voice actor, Keiichi Nanba, also played Gurio Umino and Allan.
  • In episode 44, Zoisite appeared along with the rest of the Shitennou in a flashback. However, he did not speak.

Political strategists, take note: for the first time, Millennials and Gen-Xers outvoted their elders in 2016, according to data from the Pew Research Center.

Fully 69.6 million Millennials (defined as people who were 18 to 35 in 2016) and members of Generation X (ages 36 to 51) cast votes in 2016, according to a Pew analysis of data from the Census Bureau. By comparison, 67.9 million Boomers and members of older generations voted.

This is the culmination of a steady march of the young electorate slowly catching up to the middle-aged and elderly electorates in terms of size.

Fish....or cut bait!

Been an interesting couple of weeks, hasn’t it?   I’ve been around, just a bit too busy to comment with football season right around the corner, I do have a day job after all.  Yet with folks acting the fool all over the place I do think it’s time for another PR lesson.

I don’t know who’s running the PR show at Outlander – I have an idea – but I do know one thing, they’re floundering and it’s not completely their fault.   Mr. Heughan told on himself the other day with his statement in that lovely little interview.

“Say yes to everything.”  

It’s a studio’s and agent’s dream.  It’s PR nightmare, but it can be managed if you’re smart about it…which I’m afraid the Starz PR team is not!  I have a theory about what’s going on with the Starz/Lionsgate/Sam/Cait mess so let me explain.

First off…. let me tell you what I’ve been doing -the Falcon’s first pre-season game is the 10th so I’ve been setting the talking points for all the upcoming interviews.  That’s right, even at a sports level the interviewers are told what they can and cannot talk to the players about.  What does that tell you?   It tells you that if an interviewer asked whether Sam or Cat were together it was because they were told too by Starz PR, pure and simple!   PR sets the narrative, so with that in mind, let’s look at what PR is trying to tell us.

PR wants us to know that Sam and Cait are “obviously” not together and to bring home that point they have Sam and Cait state emphatically in interviews that they aren’t together (pay no attention to their co-stars who have trouble keeping straight faces through all this) and they trot out the blonde in a couple of scenarios so staged her ex-boyfriend found it necessary to throw a little shade.

Now my mind immediately goes to the “why” of them setting this narrative.  Why do they want us to think Sam’s hooked up with a 28-year-old blonde that really does nothing for him but make me roll my eyes at his taste in women?  Could this narrative be simply because Sam’s in love?   Nah, don’t buy that for a second.  Sure, Sam posted a pic on Instagram, but did he tag MM?  Has he ever?  Did he call her by name?  Has he ever, once indicated he has a girlfriend or significant other while avowing he and Cait are just pals?  A Little tip here people, if you’re going to try to sell this gal to me as his amore, for the love of God get some body language tips from somebody!  And don’t use Hargrave, that’s who HiddleSwift used and they were about as believable as a tutu on a crocodile.  Oh, and my favorite part, we had those lovely posed pics but the one candid shot had Sam on one side of the helicopter and her on the other and we’re supposed to believe it was because of weight distribution….um okay.  Add to that mentions that his brother was originally supposed to accompany him on this outing and the fact that Sam and MM are both represented by the same agent doesn’t help sell the “love” to me either.  But seriously they could be dating, who knows…they just don’t sell it too well if they are!

Okay, rant over, back to my theory.    So why the push of this narrative?  Let’s look at what’s going on in Sam’s life now.

The new movie. Let’s not pretend for a second that Sam’s part in this movie isn’t due to the Starz/Lionsgate connection – I’m not that dumb – are you?   And I’m not so dumb that I don’t think Lionsgate doesn’t realize what star potential they have in the boy, but here’s the problem. Outlander, while having a worldwide MASSIVE fan base, has a fan base of women who are mostly over the age of 35. To make Sam the star they want him to be, he’s got to appeal to a younger audience (18-35) as well and with Jamie and Claire aging in the show…it’s a dilemma - at least to the middle-aged male idiots that run things.   They can’t change Outlander and have Jamie run off after some younger woman (and not risk getting tarred and feathered) so they change the personal.  They concentrate on the shallow – his looks and his physique.  They insist that Sam “obviously” couldn’t be with a beautiful, intelligent, successful, woman nearing forty (whether they actually are or not, they can’t even allow the perception).   No way! (It makes me wonder, is that what caused Cait’s attitude - not her ire at fans, but at the underlying reason for having to make the remarks in the first place?)

See, I think it’s a battle of wills between Lionsgate and Starz when it comes to PR, Lionsgate wanting to quash the Sam/Cait rumors so they can push the Sam agenda and try to appeal to the younger crowd.  NOT a good move in my opinion – especially when the movie is just filming – way too early for such a move.  

Starz had it right in the beginning, play off Sam/Caits’ natural chemistry.  Are Jamie and Clair such a timeless tale of romance that even your actors even fell under its power?  The problem now is fans – even though they say they don’t – relate the actors to the roles.  Sam pulling away from Outlander will be emotionally perceived as Jamie pulling away from Claire – and it will hurt them, it already has – why do you think we’re getting all these spoiler pics.  It’s like when you’re fishing, you put bait on your hook and if you don’t get any fish…you keep throwing out more bait.  Right now, Starz is throwing out bait.  The less fish they get…the bigger the bait.  Problem is, they haven’t figured out just what kind of bait they need yet.

Remember last time I told you silence was golden.   Well for actors and shows it’s the kiss of death…if you want Starz - this time Lionsgate as well -to change its bait, stop eating what you don’t like.  You don’t like seeing Sam/MM…please for the love of heaven quit putting those nasty comments on her Instagram, you may think you’re hurting her but all you’re doing is raising her Q-score.  IGNORE her, and if you want to send Sam a message about her, ignore him anytime she posts a picture insinuating she’s with him.  Shower the show with love, go quiet on Sam.   Shower Cait with love, pretend MM doesn’t exist.  And let me be clear when I say ignore, I mean be quiet, don’t say her name, don’t comment on her blog, don ‘t check her twitter or her instagram, behave like you did before we knew who she was!  When the show throws you bait you like, eat it loudly – ignore what you don’t like.  And trust me, all the social media numbers are checked on a daily basis, probably twice a day I would guess, morning and afternoon.     

What would I do, if I had the com so to speak?  (a little Star Trek reference in case you know who gets a hold of this blog). First off, a certain blonde would fade into the wood work.  Sam interacting with younger males in the workout and sports area would go farther in endearing him to younger women than dating a quasi-child.  I’d go with attendance at lots of football games in the company of 20-something males and females and an appearance at the World Series.  A sighting of Cait visiting Sam in Budapest – or wherever else he’s filming the movie…. maybe a picture that may or may not be her. Then . just before the Outlander premiere…. a fan picture, fuzzy but one you can just make out of the two of them in an embrace….NO more comments of their personal lives period and let people think what they will!

….and that’s why they pay me the big bucks.

7 things you need to know about the trans military ban

by L’lerret Ailith, Communications Manager for Black Youth Project 100 and a Black trans woman.

  1. We have to focus on the bigger picture. This isn’t about the military. It’s an attack on the dignity and humanity of trans people and our right to occupy space and navigate authentically.
  2. Politicians are ending the ACA with no viable alternative. They’re creating a faux complication of trans people’s healthcare costs being a burden to taxpayers and the government and moving bigoted legislation in order to seem like they’re helping American economy.
  3. With the military budget at near $50 billion and trans healthcare costs at only $9 million, this is clearly a rouse to get folks to attack the legitimacy and necessity of trans healthcare. I mean, they spend upwards of $40 million on viagra but that isn’t an issue, right?
  4. With the rise in violence and harassment of trans people lately and consistent picking at trans validity (bathrooms, pronouns, etc), we can prepare for a war on trans folks by the American government.
  5. This is less about choice and more about stripping away at resources and protections. Trans people will be scapegoated as the burdens of society.
  6. There is also a clear and present danger for current trans military folks and vets relying on resources to get the money or medical care or education they needed.
  7. This will extend further than the military. It will affect Americans on the large scale and we can prepare to continue to see rollbacks against our community. If the “burden” affects military budget, who says they won’t use it to affect federal budget. And then use that as a primer to a replacement of ACA that is shitty and shuts out all protection and accommodation of trans people and probably other marginalized communities.

BYP100 is an activist member-based organization of Black 18-35 year olds, dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all Black people. They do this through building a collective focused on transformative leadership development, direct action organizing, advocacy and education using a Black queer feminist lens.

Millennials in America are more likely to have visited a public library in the past year than any other adult generation. A new analysis of Pew Research Center survey data from fall 2016 finds that 53% of Millennials (those ages 18 to 35 at the time) say they used a library or bookmobile in the previous 12 months. That compares with 45% of Gen Xers, 43% of Baby Boomers and 36% of those in the Silent Generation. (It is worth noting that the question wording specifically focused on use of public libraries, not on-campus academic libraries.)
Lance Drabble 18 & 35

Request: 18 and 35 with Lance

18. “Do you still like me?” + “We’re married.”

35. “You know I’m not gonna fall asleep until you make out with me.”

You lay awake in bed next to Lance, staring up at the ceiling as thoughts played through your head. You thought too much during the night. You look over at Lance who had his back to you, sleeping.

“Hey Lance.” you whisper-yelled, shaking his sleeping body. “You up?”

“Yeah.” he responds, turning to face you. It’s obvious you had woken him up. “What’s up?”

“Do you still like me?”

Lance blinks two times. “We’re married.”

“Yeah but do you still like me?” you repeat.

“What kind of - yes, Y/N, I still like you.”

“Like… you like, like me or just like?”

“What?”

You sigh. “Am I in the friend-zone ‘like‘?”

Lance breathed out a chuckle as he licked his lips. “Y/N, We’re married.”

“Yeah but-”

“I married you because I love you. You’re not friend-zoned.”

“Okay, good because I love you too.” you breathed and he smiled lazily. You turn your back to him and close your eyes to go to sleep when your husbands arm snakes over your waist. Lance licks his lips and leans over to whisper to you.

“You know I’m not gonna fall asleep until you make out with me.” he murmured. “It’s the least you could do for waking me up.”

You smile and turn to him. “You’re insane.”

“Yeah,” he licked his lips. “Tell me somethin’ I don’t know.”

And he kissed you.

Why don't you like madam President?..I know you said before but..I'm kinda curious about what the roots are of your hatred for her

…I don’t agree with her policies, or her morals. I guess I don’t really HATE her, but…

…The way she acts DOES remind me of the assholes who used to bully my brother. It leaves a sour taste in my mouth, if I’m honest.

Which I have to be, because of this stupid M!A.
