Deadpool and Cable take Hope to Disney World…
and I kind of can’t stand how ridiculously cute this is.
A text that I’m currently reading and writing a short paper on, is Murdering Masculinities which deals with the hardboiled detective genre and its sadomasochistic tendency got me thinking a bit on my own reading habits and preferences.
TL;DR: Comics and film noir/hardboiled pulp underneath.
Oooh, you know I’m a sucker for these kinds of essays. They scratch an itch.

Japan, though hyper-modern in some aspects, is still in many ways extremely traditional, especially when it comes to gender equality and feminism. And yet…
Have you noticed just how many Japanese shows (I’m talking anime, dramas, you name it) manage to pass the Bechdel test with flying colours? I’m not even that into Japanese media specifically anymore, but I will never stop respecting the fact that they can even conceive of the fact that sometimes women have other things to talk about than whether or not “sempai noticed them”. They have hushed conversations about sensing dark entities, and after-school clubs, and rivals, and how much they fuckin’ love Korean barbeque. The average anime has a shitload of female characters, even outside of the fetishistic harem stuff. In fact, if you watch enough Azumanga Daioh and Sayonara, Zetsubou Sensei, it starts to feel like the Bizzaro-world version of American television, in that male characters seem like an endangered species.
I’m not saying their media is perfect (oh, sweet Apollo, fuck no.), but I am saying is that western media can take at least one leaf out of their book.
Storm and Yukio.

…are those giant Easter eggs?
This looks like the type of horse that will lure you onto his back and then carry you into a lake.
Kelpie. Or possibly a Pooka. Do not trust horses who show up in the middle of nowhere and seem to want to give you a ride.
yeah horses that want you to ride them are clearly up to no good.
Remember to keep an emergency stash of foie-gras! They can’t eat liver, so just rub it all over yourself to ward them off, as well as any unwanted suitors.
