usullusa: (Avatar: Sokka WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?)

  • Welcome to the age of the internet

  • Google will now be compensating gay and lesbian couples for the extra taxes that their heterosexual counterparts do not have to pay.

  • Not only is The Last Airbender a clusterfuck of race!fail, the reviews are out an it is a shit-tastic movie.
    Shyamalan has boiled every epic heroic story of the past 20 years down to its most basic, primal soup-y essence, so he can spray it all over the audience, in a kind of Hero's-Journey bukkake.

    Later in the film, Katara says my favorite line ever, "We need to show them that we believe in our beliefs as much as they believe in their beliefs."

    Recently, at an Asian fusion restaurant, I was offered a thing called an Asiadilla. This was a quesadilla with roast duck and hoisin sauce inside it. Just let that idea sink into your mind and permeate your tastebuds — in essence, it's Beijing Duck crossed with Tex-Mex. With extra cheese. Watching The Last Airbender is like being force-fed a hundred Asiadillas, washed down with a pitcher of overly sweet Saketinis.

    I can so see Sokka making up the word sake-tini, by the way.

  • Late to the party, but spreading the utter horror. A doctor has been treating pregnant women with experimental hormones to prevent lesbianism and non-traditional gender roles. Excuse me while I throw up.

  • Ahhh apartment stress ahhhhhh

Too much

I was going to blog about LJ's most recent trans fail. But then I spent a while being subjected to my roommates' phone conversation in which she called things "retarded" and made homophobic comments. And I've thinking all day about how my parents have kindly informed me that either I "change" my sexuality or they're through with me. And all I can say is that the world is full of so much fail it's overwhelming.

By the way [livejournal.com profile] sparkindarkness does a way better job of explaining LJ's bullshit and why it's not okay than I ever could anyway.

  • "Can V-Day Survive Shifting Roles?" This article pisses me the hell off. You can't have real romance when women are in the work place, or god forbid earning more than their spouses. And those big scary queers are fucking with gender roles too! Oh no! In order to have some romance we have to step back into the past and put everybody in their place. Ugh.

  • For anybody who wasn't watching television last night an Olympic athlete died last night, hours before the opening of the Olympics. This really hit me on a personal level for whatever reason. Athelete from a small country in the Caucasus, fucked over by history, lots of racism against them in Russia, esp during the Soviet Union era... one can see the connection.

  • I get annoyed when people blatantly stare at me for way too long. It's fine to look at people! But don't oogle for a zillion years because it makes them uncomfortable! The other day this guy ahead of me in line spent twenty minutes staring at me in utter confusion. I can only assume he had no idea what the fuck gender I was. This happens often enough but seriously take a hint when I make eye contact with you. And just because I happen to looking somewhere a few few feet away from you, doesn't meant I don't know you're staring at me like I'm a circus freak.

  • Last night I was playing Uno (Yes, I was playing Uno on a Friday night. DON'T FUCKING JUDGE ME.) and Steph was systematically fucking everybody over. Then she won, more or less because of me at which point Nikki leaped up and screamed: "HAVE THAT ON YOUR CONSCIENCE! YOU HAD A SEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT CHANCE AND YOU FUCKED IT UP!". We take our children's card games very seriously around here.

  • Does anybody understand what the hell Google Buzz is supposed to do anyway? So it basically ships in your twitters and various activity on Google products?

    Okay, upon exploring some more (I've been more or less ignoring it for now, besides blocking a whole bunch of people I don't want knowing shit about me) I've discovered that it looks for your other sites. It actually found my LJ all on its own and has an option for me to connect it to my feed on Buzz. THIS IS REALLY CREEPY AND I DON'T LIKE IT.
    I second everybody's concerns about the automatic contacts. Fail Google! I've found an option to turn off other peoples' ability to see your contacts at least... I don't know if there's an option to turn off Buzz entirely, but despite my problems with it I'm curious to see whether or not it will take off and how that will work, so I'm keeping it for now.
