Stephonee Brain Meats

Where the thinking thoughts go

1 note

Officially: I love tumblr and I think I’m addicted to my dashboard. Hurray for discovering and loving a service that a year ago I was not using!

However, I’m gonna take some time off and not check my dashboard. Because I haven’t seen Frozen (money issues have kept me home from the theaters) or any of the 3rd Season of Sherlock (I’m in the US and the US premiere hasn’t happened yet) - and my tumblr dash is becoming quite the series of spoilers/gifs from both.

I’m sure most people don’t consider some of the posts spoilers, but it’s a personal “me” thing. I don’t even like to seek out and watch trailers for things any more - I like to go into things completely fresh and experience the movie/episode with a fresh brain. 

Rather than unfollow the vast majority of people I’ve followed up until now, or pitch a fit that people aren’t hiding “spoilers” behind breaks well enough (because again, my definition of spoiler is so vastly different than other people’s), I’ll just wait until I’ve caught up to all you guys. 

You just keep doing you, tumblr peeps!

This is, in fact, the most important post on the internet.

Every male should be required to read this.

IN PAIN READING THIS. REALLY GLAD I HAVE A DICK

the most perfect post. 

This is marvelous and I very much want this to be a YouTube video so that it can be more easily digestible.

But I will point out that you’re not going to get toxic shock syndrome because you leave your tampon in for an extra 3 minutes. Toxic shock is a rare disease and the chances of getting it can be increased by the prolonged use of tampons. Incidence is about 0.003% per year of tampon-using women. (That’s roughly the murder rate in the US…though, to be clear, for all people, whether or not they use tampons)

In other words…you do not have a time bomb ticking in your crotch. Toxic shock is rare, but be aware of the symptoms just in case.

This is pretty great, but I definitely feel like recommending the Diva Cup (or another menstrual cup) to any ladies that can use one. All the benefits of a tampon, without the TSS risk - you can leave it in for up to 12 hours, which makes “changing” (cleaning) it on a schedule that much easier, and it’s arguably more environmentally friendly than paper/synthetic goods. Also, super comfortable (in the tampon “I can’t even feel it!” way).

Cramps, I go no advice except that Advil/ibuprofen seems to be better than Tylenol/acetaminophen. 

Stupid uterus.

WHOEVER MADE THIS I LOVE YOU AND I HOPE YOUR FRIDGE IS ALWAYS FULL

It’s weird because like, even the movie footage itself has their skin darker than the merchandise- it’s REALLY weird- the bottom one looks much more natural!

I just love the whole “Aurora’s dress is fucking blue okay” aspect

And Cinderella’s was white.

:-D

Ariel’s was pink!

AND CINDERELLA FINALLY HAS HER STRAWBERRY BLONDE HAIR BACK

'It's weird' is code for 'wow whitewashing is real'

I like that Belles dress is actually gold

Damn. I haven’t see their real colors in so long.

How the hell you whitewash white people though?

I love their real colors so much.

I also get a little head ache every time I see Cinderella in a blue dress. 

So much this.

My favourite moment in the series.

#it’s just so awesome to see a young woman surrounded by men who are earnestly interested in her opinion #esp. on *ships* #do you know how often i see women get shut down when they try to join in discussions on cars #but they’re all like #”nah this girl knows her shit” #”let’s talk to her about it” #i mean they SHUT DOWN A GUY ASKING HER TO DANCE BECAUSE SHE’S *TALKING* (via dropkicks)

Is no one going to mention that she is doing all this mechanic speak wearing a frilly pink ball gown? I mean could you slap gender roles any harder in the face?

No. No one is going to mention it because it would be disingenuous of Kaylee’s character, in that situation, to be in anything BUT that frilly pink ball gown. Kaylee wearing that frilly pink ball gown is awesome, not because it’s a slap to gender roles but because of everything that happened in that entire episode. 

It is NOT that Kaylee is wearing a frilly pink dress that he got right. It is the fact that Kaylee is a fully realized character who is complicated in her own right and can’t be summed up in a series of gifs that he got right. It is the fact that she is the most talented mechanic in the ‘verse (remember how it was supposedly Bester. but Kaylee fixed the problem he couldn’t?). The fact that she has her own sexual agency and is not ashamed about it (in fact, her, Zoe, and Inara all have sex on the show on their own terms, in ways that make sense for each of their characters). The fact that she wears a jumpsuit with a teddy bear patch on it. That she decorated her door with fairy lights. That she helped make a working replica of an Alliance ambulance from broken parts, and can hold her own with men talking shop, but can’t handle fighting. That is what he gets right. 

And while we’re on the subject: Shindig wasn’t written by Whedon. It was written by Jane Espenson

So. SHE got it right. 

Sorry. I am not a fan of commentary that, while has a point, seems to miss the larger picture for something smaller.

Actor Stephen Fry talks to Carrie Fisher & Robbie Williams about depression in “Secret Life of the Manic Depressive.” This is a really great documentary to watch if you think you might be struggling with depression or possible bipolar behavior. 

This clip alone is interesting - I’m going to have to track down the full documentary, it seems.
