As I watched, a pair of pale women in summer dresses paused in a patch of light, and, like prisms, their skin threw the light in rainbow sparkles against the sienna walls.*
VAMPIRES ARE ****ING DISCO BALLS IN MEYER'S WORLD. JESUS ****TING CHRIST.
7) Vampires attract tourists to eat by using a sexy lady vampire.
Here's the best. This is LUSH. At the end of the chapter, as Edward, Alice, and Bella are leaving, a female vampire named Heidi returns, wearing apparently the shortest skirt of all time and a tight shirt and being clearly a *~sexy maiden~*. She brings with her over 40 tourists, which include "one small, dark woman in particular. Around her neck was a rosary, and she gripped the cross tightly in one hand. She walked more slowly than the others, touching someone now and then and asking a question in an unfamiliar language. No one seemed to understand her, and her voice grew more panicked."
On the next page, Bella says: "I suddenly understood the attention-grabbing outfit she wore...she was not only the fisherman, but also the bait."
Yeah. Somehow, Meyer thinks a sexy, busty, leggy lady will attract random, clueless tourists DOWN INTO THE SEWER. There are couples in this group and an obviously religious lady who is a "darky" to Meyer and kind of implies that foreign, dark-skinned people are vulnerable and will get EATEN by white people. (Just so you know, every vampire is white in this book. Really. Even though vampires have been around forever, not one non-white person was ever made into a vampire. Sort of like how black people can't get into Heaven if you're a Mormon. Awesome!)
THIS. MAKES. NO. SENSE. How the **** did this lady convince 40+ people, many who are not American frat boys, to come with her UNDERGROUND?
Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. 80 pages left of this ********.
That's just from chapter 21 of New Moon. I don't think they pay him nearly enough for inflicting that kind of pain and suffering.
I have a great urge to pick up that kitty and say "smushy smushy".
It is hard to write for an intimidating audience. Does this guy know people distrust and fear him? Does he know and like it? Ugh.
All I know is, he scares the crap out of me. I foresee him using my first name too much in future conversations: "Ninja, blah blah blah you suck blah blah. Therefore, Ninja, blah blah blah you suck blah blah. Ninja, thank you for your time blah blah blah you suck blah blah."
Kat, I'm glad you're enjoying his stuff as well. I really love his take on books and shows. I can't wait until he's done with Avatar and tackles M. Night's ****ty movie.
In things that angry up the blood, found this precisely on a site which has the episodes of A:TLA with permission from Nickelodeon:
Sorta sucks that legend of korra is about a girl. Not sexist or anything> Just saying that there are alot more guy veiwers than girls, this'll throw alot of them off.
And a reply from someone else after a few saying they don't see the problem:
As long as there are no "girl power" episodes, I will be fine with a female avatar as well.
Ugh. Go die in an Azula-created fire, please. One, there's the assumption that the majority of the viewership is male, when it's a pretty even split. Two, just because you know a lot of guy viewers who like the show, doesn't mean you represent the fandom. Three and most importantly of all, so ****ing what that it's a girl. Really, you can't enjoy something where a female is the lead? REALLY? I can't even. Will you become less manly from exposure to a (kick-ass) female? Oh right, it's just like how white people only want to watch white people hence the whitewashing in Hollywood. This is part of the reason that when shows are geared towards girls, it often tends to be My Little Pony type ******** --- because apparently that must be what girls like. Boys like testosterone fests. 24/7 testosterone! Fourth, how can you stand A:TLA? It's full of BAMF female characters. The creators have talked about their desire to subvert gender roles, for pete's sake. Gotta love the not sexist disclaimer!
And as for that brilliant reply from some other brilliant mind, well, that's a relief to know you're okay with the womenfolk getting a lead in a TV show. Hopefully they'll try to keep the empowerment to a minimum. Wouldn't want little girls being exposed to such pervasive ideas, after all!
Yep, ninja, that's the point. That's one of the justifications for casting white leads, and it's such ********. I'm sure there are some ass-backwards people out there who don't want to see people of color get any sort of acknowledgement, but the idea that a movie won't make money or a show won't get ratings because white people need to see white people is garbage. For those who do feel that way: tough ****. They shouldn't be determining how things are done anyway.
Hee, I will be very amused and filled with smushysmushy thoughts if you do, TRBL.
I am totally dragging my feet about going to Jamaica to update my social security records now that I'm a citizen. Bah.
The chef for this job is French. I have a hard time understanding him over the phone. In person I'm good, but man I have to cut out any noise when on the phone with him so I understand what he says. He is always quite nice and polite, though, which I wasn't sure of during my interview.
Saria, I really don't think I can tell you enough how excited I am for you.
Did I mention I'm excited?!?
Byron,GA> Charleston, SC> Jacksonville, FL> Guilford, CT> Rohnert Park, CA! A southern drawl in sunny Cali! . The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond. I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
