I want to get excited about Star Wars: Episode Eight. I really do. But the more news I hear about it (and granted, they're probably not set in stone, and some of them could be rumors, like the old speculations of who would be cast in Episode Seven), the more cynical I'm starting to get.

Warning for some possible spoilery stuff -- at least in terms of development business. )

While the guy in question makes some good points, there are a few things that bothered me. Or at least, things I want to talk about.

Cut for rambling/ranting/occasional playing of devil's advocate. )

And those are my thoughts. I apologize if I inadvertently offended anyone, anywhere, but I had to rant. I don't really hold many of these opinions (except the Order. They bug me), but really? Everyone's opinion is valid in some way or another. I wish more people realized it.

Thoughts? Comments? Objections? I'd love to hear them. :)

Got 10,087 words today. Also on the duel with Dooku. Doing pretty well, I think, considering the circumstances. Pretty tired right now, but relatively satisfied.

Also, a bit of a ramble, based on one post that I read (thanks to a recommendation by fangirlblog). I don't know how qualified I am to really talk about this (and I doubt I can be as eloquent as some of the commenters were), but it was something that really struck me, and I kind of want to talk about it:

And those are my two cents on the matter. I hope I handled the subject well and everything, and made sense. What are your thoughts?

Mostly inspired by a conversation with darth_eldritch last night, but I felt this needed to be said. Let's say that lately (although, honestly, it's been around for such a long while that I have no idea why the fuck I'm surprised to start seeing this now), the whole idea of the sympathetic villain has come under fire. Some people (none of you, really, just in general) have started calling it "wimpy" and "wussy" and started accusing them of being "huggable" and "cuddly" and not menacing. While they may have some valid points, I personally don't agree.

Warning for possible soapboxing. Also, please excuse any lack of coherence between thoughts; I couldn't sleep last night. )

So that's mostly my thoughts on sympathetic villains. Granted, YMMV, and I could be wrong, but that's my thoughts on the matter.

Thoughts? Comments? Hatemail? I'm interested. :)

Cut for potentially triggering content involving cyberbullying and me ranting -- this *really* pissed me off. )

And those are my two Republic credits on the matter. Sorry I ranted/overreacted -- it just really made me angry when I heard about it. Fortunately, there is a petition to fight back against Local10, in a sense: http://www.change.org/petitions/wplg-local-10-miami-fl-star-wars-fans-deserve-a-formal-public-apology. Go there and sign if you can. For human decency's sake. May the Force be with you.

Seriously, say what you will about Fifty Shades of Gray, but this is all kinds of horrible.

Possible trigger/rage warning for homophobia. )

*Sighs*

Seriously, I'm not even a fan of Fifty Shades of Gray and I don't like this. Some would argue that Bomer dodged a bullet in regards to being in the film adaptation, but in all honesty, it's not about that. If anything, it's about the fact that Hollywood still discriminates against others due to their sexual orientation, their skin color, what-have-you. Even after all this time, Hollywood doesn't seem to get it, really. Honestly, it just...well, it pisses me off majorly, to say the least. Sexual orientation, skin color, what-have-you should not be a barrier to acting, nor to anything else. Unfortunately, we're going to have to have a long way to go before anyone realizes that. In the words of Futurama:



Yeah, that pretty much covers it. :/

So, apparently Rush Limbaugh has struck again in the douchebag department. Wouldn't be a surprise (after all, "douchebag" is pretty much his middle name), but let's say he went above and beyond in the douche department this time around.

Warning for potentially inflammatory content involving abortion/mentioned double standards, and triggering content involving miscarriage and rape/sexual assault. If these things upset you, it's best you turn back. I don't want to trigger/upset anyone by mistake.


In which the hardcore conservatives continue to be completely and utterly crazy... )
