ABC News Fakes Crime Scene for Story 

ABC and the rest of the Mainstream Media dirtbags keep getting caught faking their “evidence” for their stories, since they can’t find real evidence in real life.

And these scum have the nerve to accuse anyone who has a different and more logical opinion than theirs “fake news”.

Ok but what if Les Miserables but with Mario characters

Okay so I thought about this a lot because it’s a genius idea, so I present to you the good Cast:
•Mario – Jean Valjean
•Wario – Javert
•Princess Peach – Cosette
•Daisy – Eponine
•Yoshi – Jehan
•Birdo – Courfeyrac
•Wart – Joly & Bossuet both
•whatever the girl version of Wart is – Musichetta
•Toadsworth – Feuilly
•Dr. Mario – Combeferre
•Donkey Kong – Bahorel
•Rosalina – Fantine
•Toad – Grantaire
•Toadette – Enjolras
•Bowser – Gillenormand
•King Koopa – Thenardier
•Koopalings – Patron-Minette
•Luigi – Marius
•Waluigi – society

So as I was making this I realized I don’t know a lot of Mario characters so this is sadly kind of incomplete :// but my guy ,, I have justifications for Each One let me tell you

If reading the reviews on my books has taught me anything, it’s that people can love something while still admitting that it’s not perfect.

I love ABC’s Speechless. I haven’t shut up about ABC’s Speechless since I saw the first episode. It is easily one of my favorite shows.

That being said, it has its faults.

So because I love it so much, here are six things that I love, three things that I don’t love, and one thing that I’m iffy about:

LOVE: The representation! Oh my god the representation! The representation though! It’s a sitcom where one of the main characters is a teenager in a wheelchair and he’s played by a teenager in a wheelchair!

LOVE: The family dynamic. All of these actors have a genuine (platonic) chemistry and you can feel how much they care about each other. They’re a problematic family as a whole and do problematic things but the one thing that has never been a source of conflict so far (aside from a few natural arguments and lies) is their love for one another. And I love that both parents love their children and that both act like the nag and that both do the silly zany thing while the other shakes their heads. It dismantles the typical “buffoon dad and nag mom” stereotypes. It dismantles a lot of stereotypes actually. And I love that the siblings genuinely love each other and how they help J.J. Next to the Belchers, the DiMeos might be one of the healthiest families on TV. And that includes Kenneth.

DON’T LOVE: The fact that the DiMeos keep freaking out when J.J. does “typical” teenage things. It’s honestly the biggest problem with the show. “Oh my god our son’s disabled but he was still invited to a party???” “Oh my god our son’s disabled but he was still able to break the rules???” “Oh my god our son is disabled but he still likes a girl???” I really hope they stray away from this in future episodes. To make matters worse, every time it’s brought up, they go through the whole “We don’t say ‘normal” bit which actually just reinforces the fact that J.J. isn’t what most people would consider “normal”.

LOVE: The fact that it pokes fun at both the people who are insensitive to the disabled and the SJW culture. From the very first episode when it showed both J.J. having to use a garbage ramp to get into the school and then his teacher telling him that he’s an inspiration and ordering everyone to give him a standing ovation , I knew that this was going to be an amazing show. It’s daring enough to cover one element. It’s extremely daring to cover both.

LOVE: The running gag that there are words on J.J.’s card that would never actually be on someone’s card. It just makes me laugh. Speaking of his card (I’m cheating by counting two things), I love that even when he’s talking one-on-one with someone, all of the characters read off of it, actually giving him a voice, instead of just responding to what he’s saying. 

DON’T LOVE: The weird obsession the family has with “only special people can be with J.J”. They did it first with Kenneth and I was like, “Well…all right…he’s never been an aide before so it makes sense that they might be a bit wary of how he handles things. But then they just did it again in the latest episode when they said that it would take someone special to be with J.J. Umm…no? @justrollinon​ said it best. It doesn’t take a saint to be with a disabled person. And the fact that the show treats it as such is really uncomfortable.

LOVE: The fact that we’re eight episodes into the season, that both brothers have had the typical romance subplots that happen in every sitcom, but that both sitcoms ended in a way that was actually surprising and that both seem to be over it. I’m sure ABC will force more romantic subplots down the line but I thought the way they handled both of them (sans the part where they said that it would take a special person to be with J.J.) really well.

LOVE: The fact that J.J. acts like a little shit at times. He deliberately sabotages Kenneth’s first day so that he can watch the cheerleaders. He secretly gets drunk at a party. Etc. I know the DiMeos don’t like the word “normal” but it is so great to see them treat a disabled character as a normal teenager. Usually we’re reduced to saints or the overly depressed pain-ridden angst balls.

DON’T LOVE: At some point, the entire writing crew needs to get together to decide what J.J. can do and what he can’t do. He can’t even transfer to a toilet without help but he can drive a car??? He can’t feed himself or hold a pen but he can clap, hit people, and…again…drive a car??? 

IFFY: I always flop back and forth between liking and disliking how much camera time goes to the other characters. On the one hand, it’s nice to see that ABC recognizes that it’s not just about J.J. and that other characters deserve to be developed too. On the other hand…I wouldn’t object to it just being about J.J. But with that said, I have grown to love the other characters. Even if I hate how much time their actors/actresses are getting in interviews as opposed to Micah Fowler.

But despite it’s faults, I would still and do still tell everyone to go watch it because it truly is an amazing show.

Once Upon A Time's Winter Finale Was Total Wish Fulfillment
Once Upon A Time's winter finale "Wish You Were Here" was the closest thing these eyes of mine have ever seen to televised fan fiction.

“Wow. You’re really asking for timeline continuity from this show? Maybe manage your expectations, we have never been fully upon a time since the show started, it’s all a time-travel metaphysical mishmash, a web of timelines a stack of calendars and a man made out of sundials couldn’t even solve.”

Here's A Look At 'When We Rise,' ABC's New LGBTQ Rights Miniseries
The trailer for the seven-episode series couldn't feel more timely.

The tension is high in the starry trailer for “When We Rise,” Gus Van Sant and Dustin Lance Black’s hotly-anticipated dramatisation of the LGBTQ rights movement across several decades.

The eight-hour, seven-episode ABC miniseries stars Guy Pearce as activist Cleve Jones and Mary Louise Parker as women’s rights champion Roma Guy. Also featured in the cast are Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Denis O’Hare and David Hyde Pierce, among others.

“It’s been the honour of my life to research and craft these stories of family, diversity and equality over the past three years,” Black said. “To have collaborators of this caliber sign on to help bring these stories to life is a tremendous vote of confidence, and I hope a testament to the relevancy and necessity of our continued march toward justice for all.”

Watch the trailer below:

Hello Friends and Comrades,

  1. Here is the political prisoner birthday poster for December.(11″x17″ PDF, 25MB) Also available in color here (11″x17″ PDF, 25MB), non-PDF available here (imgur link) for sharing. Print it out and plaster your community, both in commemoration of these freedom fighters and to advertise locally for a political prisoner letter writing night. Get together with some friends in your town to send birthday cards to these fighters in our struggle. It’s an easy way to help remind them that they aren’t forgotten. If you make one, remember—don’t use anything like white-out, stickers, tape or glitter on it. We also recommend that you put a return name and address and their name and prisoner number on the card, lest the authorities “lose” the envelope and forget where it is going. If you would like to add a birthday or sign up for our poster mailing list (not a listserv, one email per month), or if you would like to contribute in another way to increasing the profile of US political prisoners, email us at ppbirthday@riseup.net.
  2. There’s a special urgency to fight back the fascist creep represented in our white house and the US government. This is a great opportunity to reexamine your position within society, and dedicate yourself further towards its upturn. Whoever occupies the white house, the same pigs occupy our neighborhoods, and our neighbors occupy their cages. More now than ever, more today than yesterday, and more yesterday than the day before it. Renewing your dedication to the struggle to abolish this prison society can take many forms. Maybe you’ll be able to contribute financially. Maybe you’ll be able to contribute time. Maybe you have a special skill you can contribute to the struggle. This is the time to find out about yourself, the time to get together with your friends, coworkers, and neighbors, and the time to seize all available opportunities to disrupt and destroy the coming fascist menace. We are all we have, and no one is going to save us but ourselves. Sever the means of the reproduction of life from the market and share with the least of those around you. If we learn nothing else from 1936, it’s that the most potent fight against fascism is a vibrant movement of working class people against capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, and the state. Dig in, folks, we’re in for a serious struggle. Trump might be our next president, let’s try to make him our last.
  3. A special thank you to the designers of this month’s poster. Designers are constantly bombarded with requests to work their trade for free, for publicity, or for a cause, and every month the PPBD Posters project relies on their generosity of time, skill and devotion to the cause of prison abolition. Cheers to Corina Dross for putting this month’s rad poster together.
  4. Do you need help advertising for your local Political Prisoner Letter Writing Night? Are you interested in distributing physical copies of the poster? Write to us and let’s find a way to get physical copies of our poster to you: ppbirthday@riseup.net
  5. Be sure to check out the latest Political Prisoner/Prisoner Of War every-other week update (PDF, 252KB) by the NYC-Anarchist Black Cross. There are lots of important updates on many political prisoners. This one includes updates on Chelsea Manning, Eric King, Oscar Lopez Rivera, and more.

Remember: They are in there for us, we are out here for them!

Until Every Cage Is Empty,

The Political Prisoner Birthday Crew

So...Adam & Eddy.

This has been growing and growing for a while ever since 4B, but now it’s official.  It’s not just as writers that I have a problem with them…I am absolutely disgusted by them as people too.

Adam Horowitz and especially Edward Kitsis (Adam is delusional, Eddie is more of a willful douchebag) are genuinely sick.  They are sick in the mind, and it’s been reflecting more and more in their writing the more creative freedom they’ve received and the more actual good writers either left or became marginalized in the writers’ room.  Last night’s episode, 6x10, was the culmination of it all, and this asinine interview they gave afterward just reinforced it.

Any land where the Black Fairy, the Dark Fairy, the darkest soul we’ve been teasing for six years, runs can’t be fun.

OK, first of all, “teasing for six years”?  She was only mentioned in 3x11, and never teased again.  For some reason she captured fans’ imagination and they kept badgering you about her, so you finally caved and made her a character rather than part of a one-off plot device. 

Second, are you trying to replicate Peter Pan here?  To have the Black Fairy be the most evil villain on the show to date, one of Rumple’s parents, and used as a catalyst for his second redemption and presumed death?  Because it’s not going to work this time, not when Rumple himself has become a complete monster.  He’s an irredeemable villain and should die as one.

Yeah, I think the path for Rumple and Belle has been rocky, it has been tortuous, but sometimes things bring us together in unexpected ways. I’ve always rooted for those two and I hope for the best.

You are rooting for textbook domestic abuse.  You are hoping that Belle, a victim, will return to her abuser, Rumple.  But you are so batshit insane that you have no idea that this is even what you have portrayed on screen.  You honestly believe Rumple can be forgiven here.

I think you saw Rumple go right up to the line. And when he had the ability to speed up her pregnancy and do one of the worst things possible to Belle, he didn’t do it. He got to the line and he turned back from it, even though Belle doesn’t know that at the end of episode 9. But he did, and I think that was a really important moment and a really telling moment, which is that despite all of his love for power and addiction to magic, there is a deep abiding love for Belle in there as well, and he’s always in conflict because of that. That’s the glimmer of hope that has not died out and is kind of the root of that relationship.

How the FUCK is speeding up her pregnancy “the line” and “one of the worst things possible to do”, as opposed to lying and manipulating her through her wedding vows and beyond, stalking her, committing rape-by-fraud on her TWICE, trapping her somewhere like an object while likening her to one, verbally and emotionally abusing her, plotting to use a magic item on her child once it’s born to force a change against her will, slapping a cuff on her that will always allow him to find her no matter where she tries to hide, and freaking terrorizing her at every opportunity in hopes that she will submit to him?  Rumple has gone WAY over the line!

And nice, you think that just because an abuser could have done something bad but didn’t, that this is grounds for reconciliation between them and their victim.  Never mind that Rumple only didn’t do it because Belle told him that he’ll lose any chance of “having her” if he did. Because this “deep abiding love” he has is NOT for Belle as a person, but for an object for his own gratification. And yet you’re romanticizing it.  This is literally everything the anti-CSers continuously claim Hook’s relationship with Emma is and more. Where’s their outrage now?

It’s the wish realm. It’s the realm that was created by the wish, so it’s an actual place that exists now. The wish has created it, so it’s not an alternate realm in the sense that it’s just imaginary and not real; this place actually now exists and is real.

So, let me get this straight - the place now exists and isn’t imaginary, so all the people there are real, valid lifeforms.  That means Regina Mills murdered this realm’s Snow and Charming, effectively orphaning its Henry, and yet she isn’t going to pay any consequences and is even thanked for it by Emma and rewarded for it with a new Robin Hood.  All while that world’s Henry daring to try to kill Regina is portrayed as “becoming everything Emma didn’t want him to be”, and in Storybrooke, David is portrayed as suffering from “darkness” for daring to try to kill the Evil Queen who is an active threat to his family.  Fuck you, Adam & Eddy.  Fuck. You.

This character that we’re meeting isn’t the same Robin Hood who we know. But because he also is sort of a version of that Robin Hood, it clearly has a deep impact on Regina.

Typical, you cannot afford to give Emma any sort of catharsis or sense of closure by getting to experience a happier life that she could have had, you even have her dismiss it by saying she is defined by the abuse she suffered and that a happier version of her “sucked”, but Regina, she gets this with Robin Hood, she gets everything.  I am having a hard time thinking of a more repulsive Creator’s Pet / Mary Sue character in recent fiction than Regina Mills.

We’ve seen Regina have the ability to love and love other people, but somebody that she really actually needs to explore is herself.

There is literally no-one Regina loves more than herself.  No-one.  She has “explored herself” over and over again, most of her run in this whole series has been all about her whining about herself and how her life sucks and trying to find quick fixes at other peoples’ expense.

In the second half of the season, we are going to be going to Agrabah and we’re going to be picking up that story

Ah, good. I’ll watch that for Oded Fehr’s Jafar’s sake, not for your’s.

In short, I’d have to say that Regina and Rumple, and the overfocus on them and whitewashing of them, ruined this once magical show.  But at length, I’d have to say that Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis, the creators of the show, ruined it.  They are sincerely talented showrunners in every field except as head writers and their moral worldview is one of the most skewed I have ever seen, and these two factors combined with increased creative freedom and the loss of sincerely talented storytellers was a recipe for disaster.  After Season 3, this show has been having a remarkably rapid downhill slide (most of 4A being good is due to Disney’s interference, and most of 5B being good was a lucky fluke come about through a variety of different factors), and Season 6 appears to be the absolute nadir.  

I thought I could stick with this show to the end, but I underestimated A&E’s ability to suck.

I. AM. DONE.
