So many ideas buzzing around my brain today. And it’s still raining here. I’m sun activated, so this is really getting me down. It’s not supposed to be gray and mucky on Memorial Day weekend. I’m tired of being cold.
I keep running into other peoples’ posts that insist that Mad Max: Fury Road doesn’t have a story and isn’t really feminist. While I have an urge to argue with people over this. (How can any movie that has the Vuvalini, where the entire point is to overturn a patriarchal nightmare with a more egalitarian system where everyone has agency, not be feminist? What?) But I have decided for my own sanity not to engage in these arguments. I should be writing instead.
Speaking of feminist, I’m one of those people who might be bailing on Game of Thrones after this last episode. For me, it’s mostly that they were setting Sansa up to be one thing — she was figuring things out, she was conniving on her own, and telling people off. But then the show just subjected her to the same old same old violence. Overall, the show is exhibiting many of the same traits that are the reasons I don’t read multi-volumn, multi-p.o.v. epic fantasy. How much longer am I going to have to wait for a Brienne episode? And on a TV show I can’t skip chapters to get back to the characters I like.
And I think I’m coming down with a cold. WAAAAAAAAAAAH.
