I had a dove and the sweet dove died; / And I have thought it died of grieving: / O, what could it grieve for? Its feet were tied, / With a silken thread of my own hand's weaving; / Sweet little red feet! why should you die-- / Why should you leave me, sweet bird! why? / You liv'd alone in the forest-tree, / Why, pretty thing! would you not live with me? / I kiss'd you oft and gave you white peas; / Why not live sweetly, as in the green trees?

Consumers and Complications in The Giver Trailer

Thanks for all your support on my last blog entry, you guys! This week, after much procrastination, I’ve finally released another one, this time on some troubling implications of The Giver movie trailer. Nothing cynical, just observational. Give it a look! :) Comments are always appreciated.

 #remember when sookie was played by a fat actress and there were literally no jokes about her weight on the show? #remember how she wasn’t defined by her weight? #remember how she got to date and get married and have kids and not be just the token funny fat friend of the main character? #remember when she ~got her life together and was happy before lorelai and that wasn’t seen as threatening?

remember how her insecurities (which she did have, because doesn’t everyone?) had nothing to do with her appearance and were more about her artistic failures, her ability to be a mom, her “annoying quirks” she thought Jackson would get tired of?

remember how even though she was often clumsy forgetful and disorganized she was still portrayed as a competent adult? remember how her decision to get married and have kids didn’t diminish her career as a master chef and entrepreneur? remember how she was a bubbly and funny supporting character without being shallow or unintelligent?

I think about this every time I see Melissa McCarthy

i knew the answers .

  • Police Inspector: Doctors... lawyers... never get past sixty thousand rupees. He's won ten million. What the hell can a slumdog possibly know?
  • Jamal Malik: The answers. I knew the answers.

This fight of my life is so hard, so hard, so hard. / But I’m gonna survive. / Oh, oh, these are beautiful times.
