musings of a secret ninja bunny

the equation of a glo = 32% disney, 24% fandom, 14% preppy, 11% cutesy, 8% food, 6% asian, 4% super girly teenager, and 1% personal diary. but to be dead honest, i'm just 100% random

I really cannot understand the questioning the delaying of Korean dramas, or variety programs, or comebacks and music shows and the like. There are people genuinely upset over this, and I can’t wrap my head around it. There are human lives at stake here, surely you can wait for something that is…

If you feel like playing film critic misogyny bingo when America’s first round of Winter Soldier reviews are published this week, I recommend looking out for the phrases “leather-clad” and “ass-kicker.” These are an easy way to weed out any reviewers who weren’t paying attention to the movie, because neither phrase describes Black Widow’s actual role.

For one thing, Black Widow is not “leather-clad.” Not unless you’re talking about the casual leather jacket she wears in a handful of scenes, anyway. Her official uniform is no tighter than Captain America’s was in The Avengers, and is similar to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s artificial fabric jumpsuits. By comparison, the Winter Soldier’s signature look involves leather body armor, ’90s grunge hair, smudged eyeliner, and a black rubber mask.

Spider-Man’s spandex costume is probably more salacious, but I’m pretty sure he doesn’t wind up being described as an homme fatale by anyone with a Pulitzer.

Honestly, this kind of catsuit-focused review says more about the reviewer than the film itself. Apparently the mere concept of Scarlett Johansson in a tight outfit is so dazzlingly erotic that it bypasses some male reviewers’ conscious minds and causes them to ignore everything she says and does for the rest of the movie. The result is a series of reviews from highly respected film critics who, given the opportunity to describe each Avenger in a single sentence, replace Black Widow’s summary with the announcement, “I AM A HETEROSEXUAL MAN AND SCARLETT JOHANSSON’S BOOBS ARE AWESOME.”

….

This unrelenting focus on Scarlett Johansson’s appearance, coupled with the assumption that her only non-decorative role is that of an “ass-kicker,” indicates a fundamental inability to see Black Widow as the well-rounded character she actually is.

The first time the Incredibles took over a post and I am so happy about it

I reblog this every time I see it just for Edna.

No pockets, no sleeves (when you reach out for something your whole front is bared to the rain and breezes and cold), gets tangled around your arms when you turn, blows into the face of the person next to or behind you, you can’t carry a purse with one or if you do it leaves an unsightly bulge, gets trapped by your shoes/your neighbor’s shoes/the person behind you’s shoes, when you put it down somewhere at a party your next sight of it is on the host’s kids head as s/he, drooling with ice cream, plays superhero and her/his bad guy friends are chasing her/him and getting ice cream prints/footprints on it, gets caught in the door/revolving door/escalator/car seat … .  I’m with Edna.

And this is why you don’t ever, EVER, want me to write about your romantic favorites.  Because I think of stuff like this all of the time.

Q
Who would you want to write a new Spider Woman series? Would you want Brian Micheal Bendis to try again but without the "Agent of S.W.O.R.D." aspect? Or would you want to make sure it's written by a woman?"
A

kellysue:

I want more women in the industry period — on the page and at the drawing board and keyboard.  But it’s not important to me that women write female-led books.

That’s dangerous thinking. It suggests a limit to the empathy of the creator.  

As for who I want to write a Spider-Woman book?  Well… *me*.  But chances are that someone else will be available first and though I will writhe with jealousy, that’s great — because it’ll mean I get to read a Jessica Drew solo book and how great is that? 

tamorapierce:

In response to numerous queries about future books, I’ve added a page to  the sidebar for announced and current projects. There are currently only three to list - EXILE (Numair’s book), an untitled Circle universe novel featuring Tris, and a book about Maura of Dunlath.

The page will be updated as future projects are announced, and I will cross-post any changes to this page.

NEEEEEWWWWW BOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKSSSSSSS

Can you hear it?

It’s the Bucky fandom rising.

It’s the sound of Sebastian Stan finally getting recognition.

Brace yourselves

Winter is coming.

Q
There isn't much merchandise for The Raven Boys other than the t-shirts. Have you thought about selling or making some more?
A

maggie-stiefvater:

I considered making action figures but they would never be able to be sold separately and the Gansey one would only have strong handshake action and the Noah one would have to be made of that glow in the dark stuff(?) which seems expensive to manufacture and the Adam figure would have breakable parts that frustrated everyone who tried to play with it and the Ronan figure would have too many sharp edges to even take out of the packaging and the Blue one would always be getting lost because it was so much smaller than the others.

And I mean, what else is there? WHAT ELSE.

Q
What do you look for when you're curating songs for the different playlists? The mood, the lyrics, the rhythm? Some magical combination of the three?
A

maggie-stiefvater:

This ask comes as I am angrily scuffling through my iTunes like I’m digging through a closet — where is the tune I need for this scene? WHERE? NONE OF THESE SEEM TO WORK. THRASH. THRASH! LET’S SHOP FOR SOME MORE MUSIC BECAUSE I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR TONIGHT.

The only nonnegotiable thing is mood. I can ignore completely inappropriate lyrics if the mood is perfect. I write to a lot of instrumental music, and a lot of Irish music, but that’s because I grew up playing it and listening to it so it doesn’t read “ethnic” to me.

Mood + lyrics is the magical combination, but that’s harder to find. Those are the songs I wear the hell out. It’s the reason why I have 182 plays on Beck’s “Turn Away” for Raven Boys III.

It is never just lyrics, no matter how appropriate they are. Readers will often send me songs and say “this sounds just like Adam!” — but they mean the lyrics. I can nod agreeably, but I can’t write to it, because I’m making my own words, so someone else’s appropriate words with an inappropriate mood will cause me to herniate my imagination.

Sometimes I need a different song for a scene at different points in the book, especially as I understand the scene better. One of my favorite scenes that I’ve ever written is the Congressional party in The Dream Thieves. The first time I drafted it, I listened to “Can’t Touch It” by Ricki-Lee, which is a sort of kitschy dance number, because I needed noise in this party, the idea of a hectic and superficial and retro performance (why yes my father ran for Congress why do you ask). And then when I edited that scene, it was “The End’s Not Near” by Band of Horses, a very, very different song. I needed the mood and the lyrics of that one for Adam’s actual internal monologue.

I have my playlists sort of up on Soundcloud as I go along, but I feel badly pointing anyone to the RB III playlist because it is so very incomplete. So many songs from my playlist aren’t on Soundcloud, so I think it probably gives a very strange impression.

Finally, I can never tell if my musical taste translates entirely. If I post, say “Post Script" by Typhoon and say "this is Adam & Gansey in book 3," do people get anything from it? Hard to say. I want it to work, but I also feel very strongly about teasing and promising readers things without ever lying to or misleading them.

But I’m passionate about music — I play 6 (I refuse to count the ukulele) instruments and have music on in the house all the time — and so if nothing else, I do love when a reader adores a song I recommend. 

(P. S. Absolute best reader recommendation EVER was when a reader sent me “Ribs Out” by F*ckButtons right when I was writing the K/R dreaming sequences in DT, so thanks for that, gentle reader — it was a nice break from Upsurt)
