I’m fucking dying; we’ve got this three year old over, and he finds our Green Lantern mask, so he comes up to me wearing it and asks what Green Lantern’s powers are. So I tell him Green Lantern has a ring that can ‘make anything he imagines’ (I mean he’s three, I’m not going to Get Into It) and he runs off.
And like 40 seconds later, we hear, “Ring, make me into the Flash!”
-clanks pots and pans- stop actively running artist/shippers/writers of fandoms into a downward, emotional spiral because of content from them that you can blacklist or ignore you actual twits. (bonus: stop believing shitty rumors too)
i was added as a wrong number in a group text between a bunch of moms planning for their daughters cheer leading tournament tomorrow, and like i was annoyed and gonna tell them they had the wrong person in but i’m also really hoping their girls do well tomorrow. Apparently its a big meet, the girls have been nervous about it but im sure they’ll do great. Lexi’s been prepping for this for like over a year and she bought new cheer shoes for it and everything. She’ll carry the team just like she did last year. What a champ
A year after TFA, Daisy Ridley is set to star in 4 films and in talks for another. Only 1 is a CGI/voice over role.
Meanwhile, the article lists John Boyega’s roles in Pacific Rim 2, Kathryn Bigelow’s Untitled project, The Circle, and his theater role in Woyzeck.
On face value it seems that they’re doing equally well, until you remember that John booked and filmed The Circle before TFA and that his staring role in PacRim2 is partially because he’s also producing the film.
So Daisy Ridley has four staring roles lined up where all she had to do was basically audition, if that, while John Boyega has a theater role, a voice over in an animated ensemble Netflix remake (Watership Down), and a live action ensemble role (Bigelow’s Untitled Project). The only new starring role he has is in a film that he’s helping to make.
John had prior film experience before TFA and yet she’s the one with more booked, new gigs. Whiteness has always been a commodity and “qualification” in Hollywood. This is just another example of Black folks working twice as hard and getting half as far.
Are you following what’s happening over on Twitter, right now? Trump, today banned all EPA employees from giving social media updates. He also restricted all Environmental Protection Agency staff members from interacting with members of the Congress or the general public. And, so what happened afterwards? EPA twitter accounts started tweeting out climate change facts in defiance of Trump.
