After due consideration (don't that sound hoity-toity?) I've decided to take this place Friends-Only. Leave a comment if you'd like to be added, and if I've seen you around the comms...

...but boy did he ever this time: review of Brave on rogerebert.com.

I mean, he could have just not printed that last sentence, and I'd have nodded my head and just been forewarned that Pixar had gone all Disney on us with the storyline.  But with twenty little words, Ebert outs himself as a doddering old sexist, cis-privileged jerk.
 
Yo, Rog -- you'll probably be the first person on the planet with a keyboard-to-speech device that speaks in your very own (previously-recorded) voice.  Drag your damn' mind into the 21st century along with it, eh?

A Poem

Roses are red,
Violets are not,
My husband gave me his cold
and took all the good drugs to work in his briefcase.

If your topmost post has four funky boxes at the bottom and the security level has been changed, you've been hit by the flashcode somebody used to mess up LJ.

It's an easy fix:
  1. Edit the entry.
  2. Swap over to HTML if you usually use Rich Text.
  3. Delete the code.
  4. Don't forget to change the security setting (down there at the bottom where it says "Show this entry to:") back to what it was originally, because it will have been changed to "Everyone".
  5. Save.

Computer started acting up again yesterday.  Don't know how long I'll have it  up before it dies today.  Taking it to Apple store this afternoon.  Can't keep it up long enough to back up, or see the next ep of TW, or anything fun.  Argh.

My apologies to everybody who has commented on fics, etc. about not getting back to them.  Sorry.  And you Pros lot -- yes, I know, you're waiting for Bodie to be ok.  It's alright, I swear.

The SciFi channel hacked LotTL to BITS.

That is all.

Sorry gang, you're getting a rant.
 
So, they're remaking Blackpool here in the States as Viva Laughlin! because damn, we Americans are derivative.  Game shows, night-time soaps; if it was big in Britain it's sure to work over here, but no we can't just import it, we've got to re-do it American-style.  Then Hollywood gets a hold of it and changes it quite a bit, and damned if half the stuff doesn't go pear-shaped in a hurry (although it still receives acclaim -- Joe Sixpack loves shite for some reason.)  Look what happened to Queer as Folk, fertheluvvamud.  And they've even started in on the telenovelas, except that unlike the originals, the U.S. versions are series; no definite story arc and ending.

We've imported someone to play Ripley, cast a dead-ringer for Natalie, and a soap-star hunk for Peter.  Hugh Jackman (also the producer) and Melanie Griffith have supporting roles.  (Word is that despite having a run on Broadway in Chicago, Melanie can't sing worth a damn.)
 
The critics are not being kind.  Perhaps we shan't have to view the train wreck for more than a week or two.
