LGBT+ MASTERLIST PROJECT BY ROCIO @nuevayor

Week One: TELEVISION
Week Two: MOVIES
Week Three: BOOKS
Week Four: POETRY
Week Five: MUSIC
Week Six: COMICS
Week Seven: DOCUMENTARIES
Week Eight: PODCASTS
Week Nine: YOUTUBERS
Week Ten: HISTORY
Week Eleven: RESOURCES
Week Twelve: THANK YOU + GOODBI

Week Seven: Welcome back to the LGBT+ Masterlist Project!

Hey all and thanks for joining me for another week in the LGBT+ masterlist series. We’re nearing the end of my twelve week project, but you should know that I will definitely continue updating the entire series over time. I encourage y’all to contribute and recommend media to me by replying, reblogging with comments, or sending me a message - honestly, this project wouldn’t be half as fun to do if I didn’t have your feedback.

I must say this week was one of the most fun to do - documentaries do a great job at shedding light to even more niche issues within the LGBT+ community - like historical events such as the Stonewall Riots, a closer look at representation in the media, cases studies, and what it’s like to come out or just simply exist as an LGBT+ person in nonwestern society, are all examples. These documentaries shed light on sensitive topics without demonizing or ostracizing those in the LGBT+ community - we know this happens far too often in television, movies, and other media of the like. It was really relieving to see respectful representation this week, I hope y’all appreciate that too. I really look forward to watching these documentaries (151 in total! Wow!), especially those about the Stonewall Riots. 

Again I’d like to thank all of you who have supported me since I started this project. Y’all understand that I am merely a college student with only 168 hours a week and two hands to do what I have to do before the next assignment is given to me. This project takes a lot of time and effort, so I appreciate those who encourage and thank me for that while contributing to the discussion. That being said, that doesn’t mean I don’t need constructive criticism. I just ask you to give it to me respectfully!

Another thanks to my girlfriend @mightyachillis​ for making the gifs for the previous six posts, but now since I finally managed to get my hands on Photoshop after losing the program about seven months ago, I’m very eager to get back at and start making gifs on my own. So! Gif credit will be mine for this week and beyond. 

Here’s the set up for the next five weeks:

  • Next week: LGBT+ PODCASTS
  • In two weeks: LGBT+ YOUTUBERS
  • In three: LGBT+ HISTORY
  • In four: LGBT+ RESOURCES
  • In five: THANK YOU + GOODBI VIDEO!

With no further ado, here is my alphabetized LGBT+ DOCUMENTARIES MASTERLIST!

  • A Bit of Scarlet (1997) - Any minority craves images of itself, and this compilation of clips from Britain’s post-war cinema archives is a testament to the closeted appearances of gay characters and sentiments from filmmaking’s earliest days. With Ian McKellen as narrator and witty graphics to bridge the thematic sections, A Bit of Scarlet reveals to what lengths the film industry went to include and yet ridicule gay characters. 
  • A Drag King Extravaganza (2008) - What is a drag king? What is the Drag King Conference? Simply speaking, a drag king is a woman who dresses in a male persona for theatrical purposes. This documentary provides a reflexive look at “what is a drag king” and a personal journey inside the International Drag King Community Extravaganza (IDKE). 
  • A Jihad for Love (2008) - Fourteen centuries after the revelation of the holy Qur’an to the Prophet Muhammad, Islam today is the world’s second largest and fastest growing religion. Muslim gay filmmaker Parvez Sharma travels the many worlds of this dynamic faith, discovering the stories of its most unlikely storytellers: lesbian and gay Muslims. A Jihad for Love was filmed in 12 countries and nine languages and comes from the heart of Islam. Looking beyond a hostile and war-torn present, it reclaims the Islamic concept of a greater Jihad, whose true meaning is akin to ‘an inner struggle’ or ‘to strive in the path of God’ - allowing its remarkable subjects to move beyond the narrow concept of Jihad as holy war.
  • A Simple Matter of Justice (1993) - A powerful and moving piece documenting the lesbian, gay and bisexual movement in the early 1990s, A Simple Matter of Justice expresses all the emotions of the joyful protest that was the 1993 March on Washington. Sections on civil rights, AIDS and health care, the military and families are woven together from coverage of the music, comedy, speeches and marchers. A must-see for LGBTQ History.
  • A Sinner in Mecca - Challenging Faith in the Face of Adversity (2015) - For a gay filmmaker, filming in Saudi Arabia presents two serious challenges: filming is forbidden in the country and being gay is punishable by death. For filmmaker Parvez Sharma, however, these were risks he had to assume as he embarked on his Hajj pilgrimage, a journey considered the greatest accomplishment and aspiration within Islam, his religion. On his journey Parvez aims to look beyond 21st-century Islam’s crises of religious extremism, commercialism and sectarian battles. He brings back the story of the religion like it has never been told before, having endured the biggest jihad there is: the struggle with the self.
  • After Stonewall (1999) - In 1969 the police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City’s Greenwich Village, leading to three nights of rioting by the city’s LGBT+ community. With this outpouring of courage and unity the Gay Liberation Movement had begun. After Stonewall, the sequel to Before Stonewall, chronicles the history of LGBT+ life from the riots at Stonewall to the end of the century. It captures the hard work, struggles, tragic defeats and exciting victories experienced since them. It explores how AIDS literally changed the direction of the movement. The two films, Before & After, tell the remarkable tale of how LGBT+ people, a heretofore hidden and despised group, became a vibrant and integral part of America’s family, and, indeed, the world community.

List of fucked up movies i've seen/ still need to watch and review

A list of movies I’ve watched, reviewed, or am hoping to watch and review. I’m just making this list so I can save it for when I move because I’ll be starting my film review channel back up after the move!

Also I added the Butters system, so here’s a guide

0 Butters: I can’t believe this is an actual movie that actually got made. Someone actually took the time to create this. Why.
1-2 Butters: Don’t.
2.5-3 Butters: Go ahead. It’s entertaining enough. I guess.
3.5-4 Butters: Oh shit
4.5-5 Butters: Damn that was good as fuck. 

  • Martyrs (2008)

I actually really liked this one. It brought up some really good points about life and death and the acting was incredible. The English dub actors are like painfully American at some points, but it’s still a pretty good movie. 

Most fucked up part: A 10 minute montage of a girl getting the shit beat out of her

I have reviewed this

4
/5 Butters

  • Audition (2001)
  • Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
  • I Spit On Your Grave (1978)
  • A Clockwork Orange (1971)*

It’s a classic, but it’s a little older so it’s not quite as “edgy” as some of the newer movies on the list, but it tells a great story and Malcolm McDowell plays and excellent Alex DeLarge

Most fucked up part: There’s a moderately graphic rape scene in the beginning

I still need to review this.

4/5 Butters

  • Irréversible (2002)
  • Men Behind The Sun (1988)
  • Salò, Or The 120 Days Of Sodom (1975)
  • The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009)*
  • The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011)*

When the first one came out there was so much hype. “Omg this is the most fucked up movie ever!!!” And then I watched it, and, while the concept is disgusting, it’s kind of boring and the acting is terrible. I didn’t even really feel bad for the girls because their characters were so unlikable.

The second one at least lived up to the gross-ness, but it was still fucking terrible.

Most fucked up part: A naked pregnant woman gives birth in her car and then squashes the baby’s head with her foot.

I still need to review this.

1/5 Butters

  • Aftermath (1994)*

It’s only a half hour and there’s no plot. I mean you can go ahead and watch it because it’s only a half hour of your life, but it’s pretty meh. Basically a doctor fucks a dead body during an autopsy and then gives some human meat to his dog

The most fucked up part: A doctor fucks a dead body during an autopsy and then gives some human meat to his dog. that’s literally the whole thing. 

I still need to review this. 

1/5 Butters

  • August Underground’s Mordum (2003)
  • This is the worst movie I’ve ever seen. 20 minutes in I checked the time and died a little inside because there was an hour left. After it was over I just sat there and ate nutella out of the jar because life is too short to waste an hour and twenty minuted of it on this movie. I guess they met their goal though because it actually did make me physically nauseous, and every time I thought it couldn’t possible get more gross, it did. So I mean I guess if you wanna watch an hour and twenty minutes of shaky cam, yelling, and way more vomit than you were expecting, then knock yourself out. It’s not even worth it for the gore. I would watch any other movie that I’ve seen on this list 94 times before I watched this again. If the other 2 August Underground movies were on this list, I would take them off, but fortunately this was the only one that made it on here in the first place.  

    The most fucked up part: The whole thing.

    0/5 Butters 

  • Guinea Pig: The Devil’s Experiment (1985)
  • Guinea Pig: Flowers Of Flesh And Blood (1985)
  • A Serbian Film (2010)

I’ve never been more conflicted with a movie in my life. This movie is well shot, the acting is amazing, the premise is interesting, there are twists and turns along the way, I never lost interest, and yet this is the most sickening, infuriating film I have ever watched in my life. It’s awful, but I just can’t call it a bad movie.

Most fucked up part: I can’t even pick there’s like 5 that stand out and I don’t even want to repeat them.

I have reviewed this 

4/5 Butters

  • Cutting Moments (1997)
  • The Bunny Game (2010)
  • Frontière(s) (2007)
  • Gummo (1997)
  • Nekromantik (1987)
  • Teeth (2007)*

I actually love this movie. It’s the story of a teenage girl with teeth…in her vagina….and they bite down whenever something goes in there without her consent. I feel like us women should evolve to that at some point.

Most fucked up part: Lots of severed dick. Lots. 

I still need to review this

3.5/5 Butters

  • Grotesque (2009)
  • The Girl Next Door (2007)*

A lot of people have been telling me to watch “The Girl Next Door” because it’s “So much more disturbing than *insert any movie on this list*, but I’ve seen it, and I disagree. Don’t get me wrong, the movie is horribly disturbing, but compared to some of its gorier brethren, it’s pretty tame. It’s the concept that fucks you up as opposed to actually showing blood and gore.

Most fucked up part: Implied blowtorch to the vagina

I still need to review this

2.5/5 Butters

  • Dogtooth (2009)*

A satirical foreign film about a father who keeps his family inside for their entire lives. He keeps them under the impression that outside is horrible and evil, and that they can never leave (think Tangled, but with a fuckton of incest.)

Most fucked up part: A girl bashes one of her teeth out with a handweight (if I remember correctly)

I still need to review this

2.5/5 Butters

  • Eraserhead (1977)
  • Slaughtered Vomit Dolls (2006)
  • Melancholie der Engel (2009)
  • Megan Is Missing (2011)

This movie fucked me UP. I couldn’t sleep for days after watching it. I mean I knew it wasn’t a great movie, but about 2/3 of the way through this movie goes from laughably bad to straight up terrifying in 0.1 seconds. Of course, the YMS review cured my fear of it almost entirely, but the concept of what happened in the movie is still absolutely horrifying.

The most fucked up part: Probably when a girl gets buried alive in a plastic barrel….along with the corpse of her best friend.

I have reviewed this.

2
.5/5 Butters

  • Threads (1984)
  • Pink Flamingos (1972)
  • À l'Intérieur (2007)
  • Happiness (1998)
  • Funny Games (1997)*

This is one of my favorite horror movies of all time. What sets it apart from the others is the complete lack of blood and guts, and the fact that the villains break every single classic horror movie rule. It also explores the idea that we have become desensitized through the media. Also the main villain is scary as FUCK (in the Dutch version, although he’s fairly horrifying in the American remake as well.) What’s nice is that the American version is frame-by-frame the exact same movie, so you can watch either version and still get the full effect. No movie has ever made me lock my doors quite so quickly.

Most Fucked Up Part: I mean it’s kind of a spoiler but they kill the dog and then make the mom find it by playing "hot” and “cold.” Some other fucked up shit happens but I don’t wanna ruin it for you guys because it’s that good. 

I still need to review this. 

5/5 Butters

  • Faces of Death (1978)
  • Requiem For A Dream (2000)

It’s not even really a horror movie at all, but it’s one of my favorite movies of all time. It explores several types of addiction- drugs, love, food- and what they can make people do. If you’ve ever considered trying herion, watch Requiem For A Dream and I can almost guarantee you you’ll change your mind.

Most Fucked Up Part: Jared Leto’s gross elbow infection. 

I have reviewed this.

5
/5 Butters

  • Visitor Q (2001)
  • Eden Lake (2008)
  • Philosophy of a Knife (2008)
  • Snowtown (2011)
  • Taxidermia (2006)
  • The Green Elephant (1999)
  • Cannibal (2006)
  • Man Bites Dog (1992)
  • American Mary (2013)

Pretty good if you don’t mind a little gore. It’s about a driven medical student who takes up doing body modification to pay her way through school. Then, when she’s date raped by her professor, she gets some pretty sick revenge and becomes one of the best body mod artists in her area. Girl power! (I think)

The Most Fucked Up Part: I mean there’s a dude with no arms and legs hanging from a meathook at one point. Girl Power!

3.5/5 Butters

  • Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)
  • Vase de Noces (1975)
  • Feed (2005)
  • Subconscious Cruelty (1999)
  • Where the Dead go to Die (2012)
  • Murder-Set-Pieces (2004)
  • Bad Boy Bubby (1993)
  • The Theatre Bizarre

A collaboration of 6 (I think) different directors put together 6 short films lazily strung together with some plot about a haunted movie theatre. It’s not really fair to judge the movie based on the “theatre” concept seeing as the theatre only exists to get the next short film rolling.
I’ll give you a hint: The first one is stupid, the second one is okay, the third one is disturbing as fuck, the fourth one is so fucking boring, the fifth one tries too hard to be “deep” and “artistic” and the sixth one is disgusting but the main chick’s nose is a fucking work of art and I need to know who her plastic surgeon is.

The most fucked up parts:
Short Film 1= A woman covered in frog slime
Short Film 2= Just lots of blood. 
Short Film 3= Lots of severed dick. Again.

I saw one of your posts where you said Tim Drake was neglected by his parents, but I've never seen that in the comics. I was just wondering where you got that from?

[Detective Comics (1937-2011) #618]

[Robin (1993-2011) #11]

Before Janet died, and during the time between A Lonely Place of Dying and Robin: A Hero Reborn, Tim Drake was left in the care of his nanny and his parents didn’t mind at all that he would stay long periods of time with Bruce Wayne while they were absent.

He also had enough time to track down Batman and Nightwing without anyone at home worrying about him.

I mean, later on Jack (who I’ll be up front, I’m not a big fan of) did make an earnest effort to be better for Tim, but even Tim at one point made the claim that Jack was only staying home and trying to parent for the first time because he had been paralyzed by the same attack that killed Janet.

The parent that really started to make a difference in the situation, though, was Dana Winters, Tim’s step-mom who started out as Jack’s physical therapist and later married him. She was a really good influence on both of them.

But I’ve talked in the past about how I felt Tim’s childhood – while provided for and not criminally negligent – definitely read to me as being fairly emotionally neglectful for him. It’s part of why Bruce stepped up so readily as a father figure and mentor to him, though Tim still had a living parent at the time (that and Tim having a living parent helped Bruce not feel like he was superficially replacing Jason’s part in his life – it’s a really complicated situation on every angle, seriously).

Anyway, stuff like this is where I get it from.

In case you need an idea of what that looks like, Kentucky basketball has:

VIEWING GUIDE

Here are some media recommendations that Dion and I have gathered in order to get a general gist of the era and feel of Crossed Swords. Some of these are more historically accurate than others, and we’ve separated them out into genres below!

Note that all of these films or tv shows contain violence, gore, and sexual themes to some extent or another, so please watch at your own discretion.

For my own reference I attempted to compile the most complete list of published books on speculative realism, object-oriented ontology, new materialisms, and associated work and I figured I would share it. I also include in this list works from feminist materialisms, because they are important for providing a fuller genealogy for contemporary research, and those authors that are harder to classify together but generally write on nihilism, pessimism, and eliminationism. For the moment I’ve left off Francois Laruelle, who is still very confusing to me, and accelerationist authors like Nick Land and McKenzie Wark. The tags are my own and don’t necessarily reflect how the authors self-identify.

anonymous asked:

Do you know if Kon-el and John have ever met? Does kon even exist in rebirth?

They have not, and Kon…. um… well… Kon-el the character that was in the DC reality between 1993 to 2011 got retconned out of reality for the New 52, DC came up with a new character also named Kon El but with a pretty different origin and a very different personality. Who turned out to be a clone not of Clark but of Jon LANE Kent a future evil son of Clark and Lois and different person than the Jon Kent in the rebirth comics (who is Jon Samuel Kent) there’s a lot of messy bullshit, a not quite so future Jon Lane Kent replaces him at one point, he dies, but doesn’t. i didn’t keep up with the New 52 (can you see why?) as far as I can tell that Kon El is not dead but also hasn’t been seen since 2015 so I’m guessing DC is really hoping we all just forget about him? There’s been hints that part of the old time line are out there I mean Wally West came back, and Jay Garrick (briefly) no hints that I’ve seen about Kon El but we can hope.
