Ella Emhoff has me in tears. I don’t know if she was chiding Pence or propositioning him in front of Mother (Karen Pence, not Ella’s stepmom), but whatever she was doing I am here for it.

Fair. The Eternals, as written by Kirby, is a lot like the New Gods in that Kirby wrote them as a pantheon that would be recognizable to anyone with a passing familiarity with Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Scandinavian, Zoroastrian, Hindu, or pretty much any other mythological pantheon. The Eternals are opposed by the Read more

We are talking about fictional deities that are not necessarily the nationality or ethnicity of their real-life counterparts. If it’s okay to cast Idris Elba as Heimdall, which it is and he was totally fucking awesome in the role, it is surely okay to cast an excellent actor of non-Egyptian descent as Konshu, Read more

As far as I know, none of the Marvel Asgardian pantheon actors are Scandinavian. Is this supposed to be some sort of stumbling block?

He negotiated lowered rates to rent several of his properties for filming with the clause that he make a cameo appearance. He initiated these appearances with the goal of increasing his fame and ubiquity on the New York scene. Hell, yes, he should be edited out. That’s not the same thing as removing the public record Read more

Insert obligatory “take my money” gif here, because I am totally down for Steve as the spouse who stays home while his wife, Captain Carter, has adventures.

It’s like the book of Genesis and descriptions of the passage of time. Metaphorical rather than literal. How does one measure a “day” when the Sun hasn’t been created and there are no creatures to experience the passage of time? And yet we still have people who are willing to go to war over their answers.

What did nobody say, that Melania isn’t an American or that people who vote differently aren’t real Americans? The Trumpists say the second thing all the time about those of us who disagree with his insanity. The thing about Melania not being an American, a few commenters above said exactly that.

Ryan Coogler is working very hard right now on the script with all the respect and love and genius that he has, which gives us great solace, so it was always about furthering the mythology and the inspiration of Wakanda. There’s also the task of honoring and respecting the ongoing learnings and teachings from Chad as Read more

When it’s over, it’s over. Quibbling about timelines and dates is ridiculous. Sure, okay, maybe he’s heartbroken. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and move on. Why be more heartbroken that she possibly cheated on you than you would be for the relationship ending. Which one is worse? If I thought my wife was Read more

Ugh, it sounds more like a sequel and less like a reboot. I was holding out hope for an actual reboot, something that was in the vein of the old series but updated to have conversations about 20- and 30-somethings in this day and age. The original foursome and their drama hardly seem relevant at all in these times.

Anytime I can buy a product that strengthens the Taiwanese economy as opposed to China, I’m in. If it’s a great device, even better.
