 honestly, I think I got ahead of myself and it is kinda short :(

warnings: suggestive comments

“Are you coming to bed anytime soon?”

You look up from your book to see your boyfriend clad in sweatpants, the top you usually stole from him rightfully on his body and his glasses perched right atop his nose.

“I’m almost done.” You tell him patting the seat next to you in which he obliges, sluggishly walking over.

“You said that yesterday. And you left yesterday too.” He whines recalling the previous day when you left his home to go to your own leaving him alone in bed.

“But I came back in the morning, didn’t I?”

“S’ not the same. I wanted to wake up to you.” He mumbles staring at the 1990’s television show on his screen.

“I don’t live here you know.” You say flipping a page.

“Well, you should.” He confesses,“Besides your here all the time anyway.”

You flip another page and smile,“I know.”

“Can’t you put it down?” Fionn begged, reaching out for your body until his arms were squeezing your waist.

“Jesus Fionn.” You say shuffling into his lap and dropping your book on the coffee table,“You’re going to kill me if you squeeze me any harder, you grumpy old man.”

“Are we going to bed now?” His hand glides dangerously slow under your shirt tracing up and down your spine,“Please.”

“And if I do, what do I get?”


“Anything?” You say flirtatiously adding a sly smile to the end.

“Anything thing you want.” Fionn smirks going in for a kiss that you only pull back from.

“So you’ll cook dinner tomorrow?”

Fionn chuckles,“That was cheeky, thought you were going for something else.”

“We’re not all dirty minded Fionn.” You answer pressing a kiss to his rose colored lips and digging your head into his shoulder.

“S’ you are tired I take it?” He asks turning off the television.

You nod, now wanting nothing more than for him to embrace you into his figure.

Fionns’ lips brush against your forehead and he picks you up in his arms in a quick motion and you ball up the fabric on his back and hug his waist with your knees, his hands under your thighs as you walk to the room.

“Move in with me.” Fionn says, his hand tracing things into the back of your leg.

You feel yourself smile and you play with a small lock of hair at the back of his head,“I think you already know the answer.”

“Am I selfish to say I want t’ hear it?”

“No.” You say as he drops you onto his mattress, his body hovering over you because you are yet to let go. You watch as he takes off his glasses before watching you patiently,“I want to move in with you.” You whisper.

He grins and falls on top of you and then rolls over so your head rests right on his chest, and have you never felt more at home than now.

Gargoyles (1994-1996)

One of my absolute favorite cartoons of all time, and one I argue with my mom about all the time about whether or not it was syndicated (it was), Gargoyles is about winged creatures, that turn to stone when daylight hits them, being cursed for a thousand years, and coming back to life in New York City to defend it from imminent evil aka humans. It’s all a little bit futuristic, even though much of it’s set in the past via flashbacks or a series of episodes where they’re traveling around the world. There’s crazy technology, robots, magic, interspecies romance…. I mean, it’s great. It reminded me a little of Angel, you know, the Buffy spin-off, and I was really into it. It’s also considered one of the most well-written action cartoons of all time. Apparently, there’s a final season called “The Goliath Chronicles” that was deemed too dark and adult for children, even though it still aired as a Saturday Morning Cartoon…. For kids…. It’s also considered ‘non-canon’ but if you think that’s going to stop me from watching it, you’re out of your mind. I will allow it to be considered a separate show, however.

Verdict: Recommended. The best part was that there was a recurring plot that lasted the entire duration of the show, instead of it being an empty cartoon where each episode was the exact same thing every time (sorry Scooby), although I would have liked to see more of the Gargoyles besides Goliath.



Nobuyoshi Araki Special: EX TV (1991)

1990′s Tokyo and Araki are featured in full force in this video- a gem of 1990′s Japanese TV programming*- the show is co-hosted by a future (and now former) governor of Tokyo- and was uploaded with the original broadcast’s commercials as well.   The program is a lively overview of Araki’s history and in addition to insightful dialogue includes plenty of rare footage of the photographer at work and play.  Certainly the inclusion of a clip from 1982 of Araki throwing two fist-fulls of slide film frames into the air and editing them randomly is entertaining.  

*what was permissible for TV broadcast in 1990′s Japan is not at all what’s acceptable at work or in public today.

I feel like all the present-day criticisms of Friends are the result of 2015 hindsight, looking back at a 1990’s TV show that was groundbreaking in its time

– The show included a fair representation of gay characters. Not only did Carol and Susan get married in what was one of TV’s first onscreen gay weddings, the couple raised Ben as parents. Criticisms of Ross’ jokes about his wife and lesbians are somewhat misplaced since the jokes part of Ross’ character development, with him being resentful towards Carol for ending their marriage.

– The show included an entire narrative around surrogacy and both normalized it and drew attention to its struggles and complications 

– The show includes a discussion about gender determinism when Ross and his ex-wife Carol debate over whether their son Ben should be able to play with Barbie or a GI Joe. Most characters are on Carol’s side, saying it should be up to Ben to choose what toy he plays with.

–The term ‘friendzone’ was originally coined by Joey to refer to the fact Ross waited too long after kissing Rachel to ask her out on a date, meaning she started to think Ross wasn’t interested in dating and just wanted to be friends. The original meaning had nothing to do with the present-day meaning.

And, as an extra note:

– The show was noted for the promotion of safe sex, particularly in a scene where Rachel and Monica fight over the last condom in the apartment. Whoever gets the condom can have sex. The other person can’t.
