Time for slash!

Remember the good old days when there was a vampire series called Moonlight? And remember when Mick had to give Josef a dressing-down about the issue of consent?

Mick was all like, "that thing when you threw me against the wall and almost bit me against my will? So not on." And then Josef got all weepy-faced and asked his forgiveness, and Mick went, "NOW you can bite me."

Good times.

This is a tranformative work of parody, making a point about the homoerotic overtones - conscious or not - in the series Moonlight. This video is not associated with Silver Pictures or Warner Bros.

The song fragment used is from Emilíana Torrini's 'Gun' which appears on her studio album, Me and Armini. Torrini and Rough Trade are not associated with this video.

Am I (dis)imagining things, or is it nigh on impossible to procure a slash fic involving an Adrien Brody character? How can this be?!

Adrien is sad face. Where is the slashy love?

I mean, it's not like there is nothing in his oeuvre to inspire slash ficcers to grasp their pens. He was a prostituted stripper in Summer of Sam, ferchrissakes
...and a punk rocker besides, which meant that he wore a spiky collar whenever he felt that the skull pendant was not enough for him. Come on!

In a last-ditch effort, Adrien demonstrates his adorability quotient:

What more incentive could you ungrateful sods wonderful creative souls possibly need? Get ficcing!

Have just watched Inception. Have nothing to add to the accolades showered on the film, except for this teensy weensy detail:

It must be nice to wake up from the nightmare and find that you were a privileged citizen all along. We just didn’t all have that advantage.

Ah, Inception is beautiful, beautiful,  beautiful. The CGI is beautiful. It’s beautifully scripted, beautifully filmed, beautifully cut, beautifully acted, and beautifully scored.

Half the world’s population is female, though. No, that’s actually wrong; make that 51% of the world’s population. So why is it, exactly, that I cannot - and I do mean



get to see my sex represented on film?

I am led to believe that Christopher Nolan worked on this film for a decade, i.e. ten years – ten years?!

In all that time, it did not occur to him that half of the world’s population is female. Wow.

Oh, I get it; Christopher Nolan is not responsible for the entire history of misogyny. Quite right. That is why all I expected from him was 50/50, and not 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000 females for every male to make up for the last two thousand years of bigotry in storytelling.

What did I get?

I got 12 story-supporting characters, 2 of whom were female. That’s 16,7% of the cast being female. Not quite the 51% that I had been hoping for, Christopher. And to top it all off, one of the females was the femme fatale; the background character that brings nothing but death. The other one was the secretary character, meaning the one that is sexually attractive in a non-threatening way whilst supporting the main character and bringing him his tea.

Oh yeah! And I do know that we are led to believe that the Mal character has the last word, it all being her dream or something. Funny, though, how she figures so little - she's fridged, ffs - and is never shown as anything but the Scary Woman, even though as far as I can make out, she died because the hero fucked up. Not to worry, though: she died in order to give him an interesting storyline, so her sacrifice was not in vain!

PS: Having to disallow comments on this post because the death threats are going to be a little bit much this time around.

If you don’t believe that’s what mainstream culture is teaching young women, have a look at the meal scenes in any motherfucking rom-com you care to. Why not start with Bouquet Final. Then have a look at the statistics for eating disorders. That is all.

Well, technically you didn't ask for it, but here it is anyway - the Picspam of Ultimate Doom.


Many more pics. SFW only if your boss doesn't mind you looking at guys in their underwear )

Now, that is a seriously hideous get-up. Complete with fanny bag. Makes the previous winner --

-- look downright suave by comparison.

Oh, darlings. Why would anyone want to do that to you?

Here is Marc-André Grondin. As you can see, he's a hottie.


Here are Nick Stahl and Marc-André Grondin together. These are production stills from the 2010 movie, The Chameleon.

Go on, Nick Stahl! Do it!! I know I would.

I miss you, [ profile] final_acts.

If you're out there and happen to see this, I wish you a good birthday tomorrow. Heck, I wish you a good everything! Hope you're doing well.

As we all know, only men can get Mpreggers. That’s why I left all contraception to my boyfriend in my last relationship even though I was certain I never wanted kids and knew that he did, and even though I did insist on having the exact kind of sex that can lead to Mpregnancy. He said he was on the Mpill, so that ought to be alright, right?

I know the only completely reliable form of contraception is to avoid that particular kind of sex, but you know... leaving my deposit in his uterass was enjoyable, so I thought what the heck.

I could have chosen to get my tubes tied – with vasectomies there is only a 0.025% chance of failure – but I couldn't be bothered. And condoms weren’t an option because they’re such a mood killer.

After I left my boyfriend, we haven’t had much contact, so in principle my ex could have had a kid by me without my knowing. For a while I thought that I would have no right to complain even if he did, because I was of the mistaken impression that I had to be responsible for my own actions. It is only now, years later, that I realise - thanks to the good folks commenting on this post- that in all this time, I may unknowingly have been the victim of egregious abuse!

If my ex was indeed knocked up by me without my consent, I can totally sue him and take the kid away from him, because no one should be allowed to be a parent if they’re abusive enough to keep someone’s gunk deposit against their will!

So what if I passed on a lot of contraceptive options myself?
So what if he takes care of the whole gestation process?
So what if I don’t have to spend time with the offspring?

I still have a right to decide that I don’t want to be a biological mother, goddammit, AND that I want to have risky sex anyway, AND that I want to leave contraception to my partner. That is my right as a woman!

Thank you, [ profile] fanficrants , for bringing it to my attention that I don’t have to put up with those masculine wiles that men always come up with to trap women.

PS: I bet he totally abused me by having my kid while I was on skiing holiday! Wouldn’t that be just like a man?
