Tuesday Tunes #13: The Music That (Sort of) Saved Twilight

If you were apart of the initial boom when Twilight was released in 2005, you will remember the craze.  Say what you will about Stephenie Myers's writing (and, I know, there's a lot to pick at), but she hit a sweet spot that skyrocketed the novel to number five on New York Time's bestseller list within… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #13: The Music That (Sort of) Saved Twilight

Manga Monday #13: McCranie in Space

Holy schnikes, how is this the thirteenth week of posting?!  How many times am I going to be shocked that I'm actually doing my job?  Probably pretty often. Another thing that I'm repeating:  Manga Monday isn't just manga.  Really, it's simply the word that worked with the alliteration idea I use for themed posts each… Continue reading Manga Monday #13: McCranie in Space

Freebie Friday #12: PLUS ULTRA!!

Ever watch a show that was just so horribly depressing that you couldn't take it anymore?  Or, a show that was way too focused on its humor that plot or development seemed nonexistent? Getting that balance, knowing when the drama needs a break, these are things that have to happen into for audiences to keep on… Continue reading Freebie Friday #12: PLUS ULTRA!!

Watch Wednesday #12: Snow White with the Red Hair

When I was little, I was incredibly keen on the idea of a prince coming and sweeping me off my feet.  I remember getting into bed one night and realizing that I had forgotten to brush my teeth.  I thought, "Meh, whatever, I'm going to sleep," but as I snuggled in I thought, "Wait, what… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #12: Snow White with the Red Hair

Tuesday Tunes #12: Twenty and Music Across Cultures

While some films have the ability to transcend over several cultures--fantasy films are especially good for this--others are only culturally significant in their place of origin.  Especially when you're watching a coming-of-age film that focuses on the challenges of adolescence to adulthood, so much of that involves our cultural expectations that it can be hard… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #12: Twenty and Music Across Cultures

Manga Monday #12: Body Positivity in Comics

What's so wrong about loving yourself exactly how you are? In the 1960s, second-wave feminism gave rise to what we now know as body positivity, the idea that everyone has a right to feel comfortable in their body.  Things like weight, size, height, skin color, or any other physical attribute shouldn't have the ability to… Continue reading Manga Monday #12: Body Positivity in Comics
