Serenity Wins the Hugo Award

Serenity Wins the Hugo Award

Serenity and Joss Whedon won a well deserved Hugo Award. And as usual Joss wrote an amazingly awesomely, great speech. Giving the speech was Morena Baccarin, who played on Serenifly, as well as a possible hopeful for the role of Wonder Woman. With Joss at the helm it'll be as good as X or Spiderman, 2. So, here's to Joss, Tim, and the rest of the crew, and of course the wonderful cast, that made Serenifly the best there is, and some of the best tv to date. Look out for more Serenifly talk, as we head towards the Anniversary Job. I'll keep you posted.

Shakespearen Insults

I found this website through a source, and it creates unique Shakespearen style insults. I found tons that were hilarious. I'm cereal. Here are the best of the best:

-Thou lascivious prick-eared bag of guts!
Thou impertinent ill-bred flax-wench!
-Thou puking dread-bolted wagtail!
Thou greasy tallow-faced haggard!
-Thou base muddy-mottled horn-beast!
Thou tongueless tickle-brained vile worm!

I've always liked Shakespeare. And this was a very cool thing to find. Speak them all in an English accent, if you can, and they're even more fun. Coming Soon: Serenity wins the Hugo Award and Joss is Boss. Morena, not lame-a.

England Banner

There have been a lot of questions about this, but I thought I would just post it. I got the idea because I was trying make an animated banner for some weird reason, and this picture of England was the only one that looked reasonably usable. I do not, however, have some strange fixation with her. Or do I? Mwhahhahahaha!

Which Firefly Character Are You?

You guys are probably tired of me talking about Firefly already, but I found this online and I couldn't resist. I tried to answer the questions as honestly as I could w/o thinking of the characters and what result I wanted to get and I got Zoe! I couldn't be happier!

Which Firefly character are you?

You are Zoe. While most others see you as a stone-cold bitch and yes.woman to the captain, you can be both a loving wife and quite emotional - though you never let it show.
Take this quiz!

Curse your sudden, but inevitable betrayal!

Ha ha ha! Mine is an evil laugh! Anyway, this post is about my newest enjoyment (read:obsession) the Joss Whedon space western, Firefly. Some of you may have heard about the show, it was cancelled by Fox (read:idiots) who couldn't see the greatness that existed in this show. The plot basically revolves around Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds, who captains a ship called Serenity. Mal fought in a war against the Alliance (read:Empire) who wanted everybody under their rule. With his crew of fighters, and other wayward souls, he's bonded a family that goes across the 'Verse robbing people, or helping people; whichever one seems like the best idea that day. I used to watch Buffy, which was another Whedon show, and I liked that one, alot. I wasn't completely obsessed and I could go weeks without watching a single episode, but I liked it. Now, this show, it's got me completely hooked. The story just seems so ordinarily heroic, and the characters so real, and the acting is great. Anyway, if you've never heard of it, then next time you're in the video store, pick up Serenity, which is the motion length movie that you don't need to have watched the series to see. Now, none of those looks. Hey, I saved you from the horrible fate that was Superman: Returns, didn't I? If you're feeling like it sounds like a good series, find a video store that carries the series. I wouldn't suggest a Blockbuster, because they suck and they barely have anything good. But something with a little more substance. Anyway, pick up the first DVD, and watch the first couple of episodes. I'm soooo cereal, you're going to love it. The story is first rate, the characters are three dimensional, and well, this is just me talking, but I love the theme song (read: my friends are haters, and they think it sucks). Maybe you'll find yourself joining the rates of 'Browncoats' that are ever growing all over the world. And maybe if we all show we're a force to be reckoned with, that next movie will be on the table pretty soon (read:yes, Universal, I will come for you). So, do that, please. I don't ask for much, but I'm seriously begging you to go check it out. If you don't like it (which I would find would be hard to do), then let that be it then, but I'm telling you that missing out on a series like this would be a big mistake. I wasted a lot of time not knowing about it. I'll probably post some banners that I'm going to try to make coming up soon, maybe a wallpaper or two, but in the meantime, check out the show, or at least the movie. Coming up later this week: A review Talladega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby. Hilarious movie, and filmed right here in my hometown of Charlotte to boot. For those of you that have seen it: "Now if you only remember one thing in your subconcious, Ricky, remember this: I spread my butt cheeks."

"Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand...

..... I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me." So, I'm so in love with Firefly right now, I'll have Joss Whedon's eternal babies. But more on that later. It's a great show, so check it out sometime in syndication. Anyway, this post is really to respond to a post that a friend of mine wrote, the title of which was somewhere along the lines of "In Style" or Out of Style, or something. Anyway, the jist of it was that black women have never been 'in style' as a potential mate or at least life partner at any time or with any race, and that white women are universally known as beautiful worthy mates, and therefore even the most unstable, anattractive of the bunch can find a guy who will treat her like a queen, even if she doesn't appreciate it. I recognize that may seem a bit harsh, sweeping, and more than a little racist, so I'm going to try to be clear. This is from what I've seen in my life, in real life, and through the media and other outlets. If I'm saying anything untrue let me go ahead and apologize for that right away. Correct me. But don't just write and say something to the effect of, well, you're wrong. Or, I'm a white girl and I don't even have a boyfriend! sigh! Well, having a boyfriend doesn't have anything to do with being recognized worldwide as innocent, pure, and beautiful, worldwide. This country is a prime example. Beauty is recognized as long, flowing hair, lighter skin and more delicate features. The more 'white' a woman looks, and more beautiful she's considered. The epitome of black female beauty, or at least the one black woman that's consistantly on guy's list of the hottest Hollywood women, is Halle Berry. Now, whether or not this is just a pick to placate their few black friends remains to be seen, maybe I'm just being a tad cynical. The fact remains that though Halle is very proud of her African-American heritage, she is also half Caucasian. Therefore she more than slightly envokes the facial features of a white person in addition to the 'good hair' that signifies beauty to so many black women in this country. To be frank, this predisposition to white women crosses many cultural barriers. I know a young, black man right now, who is simply unwilling to date another black friend of mine. They have many things in common and they both seem to possess an attraction to one another. Yet, asking his white friend why he wouldn't give her the time of day, his response was that he only date white women. If that doesn't give you a moments pause, then think about it again. could you imagine a totally normal white guy. Good guy, good job, doing well for himself. Just an average Joe, only dating black girls? We would think something is wrong with him. That he's trying to 'act black' or some such nonsense. Not only are black guys falling into this, but men from all over the world. They come to America, and are taught to fear blacks, see them as untrustworthy, and therefore the women as undateable. Lower in some ways. While this all goes into deeper racial lines that I could never begin to deal with, the fact remains the same, black women are not seen as beautiful, delicate, and whatnot. They don't seem to need protection, and most of all they aren't seen in the way that makes men knock each other over to get to. They are seen as strong, not needing help, and aren't lifted up on the pedestal that white women sometimes (often) get. Black women are strong, but all women are strong. They all require help sometimes, and sometimes they'd love it if you just buggered off and minded your own business, that's the way of women. Let me tone down on the sweeping generalizations: not all white women are evil, crazy, and all that, not all black men will prefer one over a black women, blah blah blah. And of course, this isn't supposed to be a sweeping indictment (second time: indictment, second time: sweeping) but the fact remains that this is what I see in my life. All right, confessionz (sic) time. I am black, I have a boyfriend, he is white. Which is much less important to me than the fact that he knows what HomeStarRunner is and watches Firefly. I am a geek. I like other geeks. If they are white, so be it. I really don't believe in picking a race to date/marry/fall in love with and sticking to it. I always feel like you're missing out on someone special because you only date white girls, or parakeets, or muskets. Anyway, this has already gone on too long already, but you get my point. Let's not let ourselves be blinded by a person and what's on the outside. Too many times we miss the inside, too. Wait, no, a little off the point. I love my white sisters, even if I want to strangle them sometimes, I love my black sisters too, and only when we get back to being sisters, can we really ban together and do what we really need to be doing: sticking it to the man.
