Fantastic 4 Not Canon + Thor Be A WomanFantastic 4 Reboot Film Has No Relation to the ComicsFantastic 4 Not Canon + Thor Be A Woman9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Remember how pissed off everyone got when they found out the studios cast a black actor as the Human Torch and a white actress for his sister Sue Storm? Well there apparently was good reason for them not clarifying why this brother and sister duo are bi-racial. That’s because nothing in the movie has anything to do with the comics. Period.
Apparently the director has thrown everything about the comics out the window. There likely won’t be any fancy costumes, the characters won’t be called “The Fantastic 4” in the movie itself, and no part of the plot is going to be related to ANY prior comic storyline. The actress for Sue Storm asked if she should read any of the comics to get caught up and the director told her “don’t bother.”
So, yup.... this is gonna be shit. At least we have an explanation now for the strange casting choices though.
A Brief History of Marvel's Film RightsSome people took interest in this from my last journal ( Spider-Man and the Avengers ) so I thought I’d try to explain it better here. Please keep in mind that this is a SUPER CONDENSED version of events that took place (starting 60 years ago) that led to the convoluted mess that is currently Marvel’s various film franchises. Also keep in mind that I will be using industry shorthand like saying “comic book industry” to refer to the American comic book industry giants of Marvel and DC, because that’s how we do things here. Anyway, here we go!A Brief History of Marvel's Film Rights7 months ago in Personal More Like This
“Seduction of the Innocent” comes out (a moral panic book which blames comics for kid’s wayward negative behavior), massive book burnings and censorship of comics ensues. Old comics burned or lost, thus increasing the value of the few comics that remain.

Age of Ultron TrailerUnscheduled LeakAge of Ultron Trailer6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just to be clear, movie companies often “leak” stuff online themselves as a way of generating interest and views for their various projects. However, in the case of the Age of Ultron trailer leak, this was clearly NOT done by Disney/Marvel’s PR department. Marvel had been planning to unveil the trailer next week during an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. That show, while doing pretty good, isn’t performing as well as they had hoped and scheduling the release of the big trailer reveal during the show would’ve given a much needed viewership boost. Marvel had it all calculated and planned out, and this leak severely handicaps those plans. So yeah, I don’t think this was intentional at all, and might explain why the trailer doesn’t look entirely “finished” either. Though to be fair, Marvel handled the leak gracefully with a single tweet: “Damn it, Hydra!”

I watched the first episode and I won’t spoil anything for you here. Suffice to say it was a little more lackluster than I anticipated it would be for a season starting episode. I understand they’re setting up a LOT of stuff (with the 3 year time jump), but overall I felt kinda blah about this episode. I hope it gets better. I think the next episode is going to examine what happened to Korra during those 3 years and that sounds like it’s gonna be awesome. So here’s hoping!
DC Apologizes for Offensive T-Shirts
This little news story broke out over the week. DC unveiled 2 new official t-shirts. The first depicted Superman kissing Wonder Woman with the title “SCORE!” over his head. The other was a Batman shirt that read “Training to be Batman’s Wife.” I have less issue with the batman shirt than I do the Wonder Woman shirt, because it’s pretty indicative of wh

“Those writers you think are masters of the craft aren’t created that way. They aren’t supernaturally capable ninja writer-bots. When you read the work of a writer operating at the top of her game, you’re not seeing all the years of failed efforts, of work that wasn’t quite right, of work that was well-intentioned or built off of strong ideas but had slick and wobbly legs like a newborn fawn.
You see the author operating at a high level and you wonder: why am I not doing that?
The reality is:
You’re only seeing the island, not the heap of volcanic material that pushed it out of the sea.”

Amazing Spiderman 2 Live Tweet CompilationI finally got to watch Amazing Spiderman 2 on DVD. Bad news is that it was so boring and full of tripe that I got bored with it. The good news is that I decided to live-tweet my experience watching it. I’ve compiled the event into this journal below, but you should be warned: there are spoilers. Though to be fair... the spoiler is from a comic written back in the 1970's so it really shouldn't be a "shock" or anything.

-Watching Amazing Spider-Man 2 for the first time. It's... Pretty bad so far and I'm only 20 mins in...
-Can we have ONE defining character trait for Peter? He seems to keep flip flopping between snarky badass and whiny angsty teen.
-"Subtle" is not a word I would use to describe this movie. It's like they think you're an idiot and can't comprehend simple storytelling.
-You can tell Jamie Foxx a nerd cuz he's clumsy and awkward and has big glasses and a pocket protector. This 2014 or 1954?
-How did you go from doing a documentary of Ray Charles to this?

When the weather is nice we like to roll the big ol cage outside...
this morning my mom rolled the cage out into the sun...
...and later found that something had grabbed my cockatiel through the bars, and then killed him, leaving his maimed body at the bottom of the cage.
I just feel so awful that this happened, so dumbfounded and shocked, I never foresaw this happening, I do not see how this could happen, the bars are so skinny, we got the heavy duty cage so they'd be safer, it was broad daylight, what the hell did this, how did it even grab him, why didn't my bird move away from the bars when the thing showed up...

Objectification vs Sexuality?That Tropes vs Women in Gaming Part 2 video sure has brought on a lot of serious discussions hasn't it? I don't mean to keep wading deeper into all this, but one question begs another and this is something I'm really curious about: What's the difference between objectification... and just being sexy?Objectification vs Sexuality?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For me this is a really tough question to answer. Speaking as a heterosexual male it's a bit of a double standard. On the one hand, objectification of women and the constant sexualization of women in the majority of media around us is, I think, overwhelmingly bad for us as a society (and I've talked at great length about this subject in the past). But on the other hand there's absolutely nothing wrong with being attracted to women or finding them sexy. Speaking from a male perspective of course, this concept can be applied to how both men and women see things.
I think our tendency to over simplify things is why so many people don't take feminists seriously, because the

I didn't have friends growing up. I know, shocker. I had the occasional neighbor kid-slash-playmate, but that almost always ended bitterly. When I was twelve I could rattle off the names of all the kids who I had tried to be friends with, only to be turned against or bullied from the start. Now, they've just all kind of blurred together in my memory. Which I guess is good, I don't think about them a lot. I just keep moving on and keep trying to find friends that will last. But they say the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over, expecting different results...

The Thing About Idols...This is something I've been thinking about for a while...The Thing About Idols...11 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is a note about idols. A lot of people have idols, I think that's a fairly common thing, and has been for a long time. It's nothing new. What is new, of course, is the accessibility of those idols, and, somewhere along the line, this is where a certain problem has occurred.
See. The problem with idols, actually stems from the name itself. 'Idol' is meant to be reserved for something divine, something to be worshipped, something, in itself, perfect.
Somehow, the 'modern age' (which encompasses a long time, in truth), has hijacked that term, and used it to mean something different.
Because, of course, those we now call 'idols', are not divine. They are, in fact, human. And, we all know. Humans are flawed. Or... Not even that always. We're just fucking complicated.
Once upon a not so long ago, those 'flaws' and 'complications' were not so easy to see, so the perfect image was able to be maintained. However, with adva
