Find Me On:
Hannibal is SO GOOD. I think it’s the best thing on TV right now. It’s kind of slow and has some very disturbing imagery and themes (obviously, cannibalism), but I don’t think either of those are a detriment. The cast is insanely talented, the cinematography is out of this world for television (MUCH less network tv!) and just. Yeah. I really, really recommend it.
(It’s also on the cancellation bubble right now, so watch it now while you can! It really might get cancelled!)
Jade Jolie needs to go home!!!
Forget the hairpiece, what about those flippers????
I like lots of stuff, but I also like to complain, and I do not think that show is inherently great! I think it is pretty stupid! I have lots of opinions!
I am quite bored at work today and this is pretty much the only blog I read. If it isn’t too much heresy, can anyone recommend any other reading today?
Second choice? How dare you.
(jk) (not jk) (yoshi is the best)
I won’t read the article because that guy gets on my nerves, but I am very resentful that I am now imagining what 36 hours with Dan Harmon would smell like.
Ohhhh man that momma rat is so good look at her carrying those babies. You wrangle those baby rats, rat mom!
Ohhhhhhh goodness I needed this so bad.
damn you FB connect!
Welcome Mary! You’re gonna do so great.
I saw Wreck It Ralph and it was delightful!
Ohhhh I needed this.
Actually I have no idea who Gabe is talking about because Robert Altman is dead?
Okay the two fat guys sliding down while eating pizza was pretty good though.
I also have become a little obsessed with this alumnus from my program. On her alum survey, her job is listed as “President” of her own website. She is an ex-FBI agent and haiku poet, and her pictures look like some kind of Twin Peaks homage cosplay. She also has the exact same face in each one.
I printed off a bunch of coloring book pages and set them out with some markers. A spoonful of kindergarten helps the graduate school go down.
You really can’t tell people what they should or shouldn’t be offended by.
Oh let’s not do the whole “white people are discriminated against too” thing. Can we just agree as a comments section to not go down this tedious road.
I am quite sour about this, but not because of any fears about Disney “ruining” the Star Wars franchise (George Lucas already took care of that, ohhhhh), but because I’m just sour in general about copyright and corporate ownership of culture. Disney is already majorly responsible for the current nightmare state of copyright law–now think about how long it’ll be before Star Wars gets into the public domain, if it EVER does. If it were up to these corporations we just wouldn’t have a freaking public domain, which is just horribly hypocritical as most of Disney’s stories are based on stories in the public domain! And think about how much better the Star Wars prequels could have been if actual fans with brains and hearts and souls had written and produced them? Sure they wouldn’t have had all the money behind them, but throwing billions of corporate dollars at something with no soul is far less preferable to small-budget science fiction that is fun and smart and has something to say.
TLDR; Disney represents everything I despise about the current state of copyright, all movies should be written by fanfiction authors? etc.
Yeah, he’s pretty useless to people actually training as psychoanalysts (though his seminars were supposed to be for that purpose? IDK way to fail, Jacques), but they’re still quite relevant to critical theory of the literary kind. At least in this chicken’s opinion.
NOOO OBAMA IS IN TOWN
that’s it, I’m never getting home, traffic is going to be so slow as to be going in reverse, goodbye cruel me, etc.
Something is in the air in Chicago, I guess, because several students have been having stress breakdowns today at my job. Either that or having to read Lacan for an entire week is just melting everyone’s brain.
Great I’m gonna need 45 gifs of this video, stat.
