I’m grateful for all the people live tweeting the hearings today, because I can’t make myself listen to Kavanaugh’s voice.

The Descent unasked-for movie opinions 

Credit where credit is due, though: that first scene where they find 100-year-old climbing tools embedded in the rock as they’re trying to cross the chasm is always chilling, I love all the stuff like that.

The Descent unasked-for movie opinions 

I dunno if this is an unpopular opinion, but I’m always amazed at how much less scary this movie becomes when the main conflict stops being “we might be lost forever in this cave” and starts being “oh no monsters”.

I hated the movie the first time I saw it for that reason, but have upgraded to feeling “ehhhhh” about it on the rewatch. I think it works a little better if you think of it as two completely separate horror films, messily stitched together.

SU screaming continued 

White Diamond pillaged all the resources from her home planet in order to make those heels it’s CANON

Show thread

SU screaming continued 

I’M IN WAY TOO DEEP THINKING ABOUT THE NEW EP BUT ALSO: notice how white diamond/white pearl’s hand gesture is the diamond authority hand gesture, but...busted apart? ANYWAY, SYMBOLISM

SU yelling 

Watched the new episode with white diamond and had a horrible moment when I realized — the entire show, up til now, has basically been BACKSTORY. It was all set up for the plot turn that just happened, and the narrative really starts now.

Also uhhh WHITE DIAMOND CAN STEP ON ME WITH THOSE HEELS ANY DAY okay bye back into my shame hole

tiny SU spoilers from season 4 

I’m going back and rewatching all of SU, and this moment made me scream, haha. 3 whole seasons between these two, but they did it

This Death in Yellowstone book is all right, but every now and then this author guy sprinkles in weird comments like “nobody knows why this bear attacked this woman, she wasn’t menstruating or anything.”

MY DUDE, NO
DON’T GET YR BEAR FACTS FROM BAD HORROR MOVIES

I haven’t posted anything on here in a while whoops, here’s a very very mildly spicy (??) selfie 

I bought Happily Widowed Retiree On A Cruise Ship pants yesterday, I want to wear them with my binder as a top :0

Oklahoma comic convention quote of the day:

A lady at my table asked what kind of comics I make, I answered LGBTQ YA comics, she her reply: “All the kids are gay these days. It’s become a fad.”

*climbs on podium* Hey, y’know how in the original stage production of The Sound of Music, Baroness Schraeder calls off her engagement with Capt Von Trapp because she wants him to be complicit in Nazism and he refuses? And then later, for the movie version, the directors replaced that scene with a subplot about two women fighting over the same man?

In my opinion, that was Bad. Thanks for listening

Superpower: extremely good at getting lots of work done on Job A as a method of procrastinating on Job B

Reading in the news this morning that Tulsa’s planning to build two new “affordable housing” buildings in my area, with the lowest rent being $800/m for a studio. W...what???

If you go by the “rent should cost 1/3 your income” rule, that means you’d have to be making $28,800 annually to afford it.

One of my favorite ~Reoccurring Themes~ on Survivor is a cop player saying “nobody can know I’m a cop, I’ll lie and tell them I’m something else” and everyone else in the game going “yeah that guy is DEFINITELY a cop”

food 

A friend introduced me to the concept of frying hard boiled eggs at an Easter dinner, and now I’ve become a fried-egg monster >:0

Also buying a better scanner for traditional media, so the time I spend doing color correction on my scans is a fraction what it used to be ;;;;;-;;;;;

Show thread

Real talk: one of the most helpful things I’ve done this year is hire someone to clean up my colored pencil scans for me. (Sort of the traditional media equivalent of hiring a flatter.) It has saved me SO MUCH TIME AND STRESS ;-;

I might be a Gay Failure ‘cuz I can’t seem to get into either Carly Rae Jepson or Hayley Kiyoko.

new SU eps 

There’s a brief line in one of the new eps where Garnet refers to Pearl before she met Rose as “a pearl who belonged to no one”.

SO now I’m remembering all the times in flashbacks Rose called Pearl “my Pearl”, thinking about the dynamics of Pearl consensually *choosing* who she belongs to for the first time, and oh no suddenly it’s time 2 cryyyyyyyyy
