Of course I'm still punning. Don't judge me.

Sometime last week, I dunno quite when, I realized that we had a couple more Buck-Leming episodes in the can before the S12 finale. On top of that, I realized we have another "fan favorite" character who was introduced by Robbie Thompson, and who was brought back on for a couple more episodes. Cue me going, "Oh fuck, Eileen's gonna die, isn't she?" Not JUST me, mind you. And I'd much rather have my increasing cynicism subverted and thrown in my face than have it validated. Seriously, this is not the kind of Told You So I enjoy.

SPOILERS if you need to know that, but know also: I’m done here. Fuck this show.

If you somehow missed the foolishness in Marvel comics last weekend, this just happened.

This matters why? Well, it matters to me because I am a practicing Pagan with a strong affinity for Trickster archetypes and Norse mythology, and I just found out Neo-Nazis claim Thor’s hammer as one of their symbols. That messed me up a LOT. This must be a little like how moderate-to-liberal Christians feel when hard-right assholes do asshole things in the name of their God. Actually, there’s no end to the otherwise innocuous symbols fascist garbage people will glom onto: the original Swastika, jackboots, this John Carpenter movie for some reason, milk, New Balance sneakers, heavy metal, punk rock, and red shoelaces, to name just a few.

Although in fairness, I’m not sure whether the red shoelaces are a thing in real life or if that was invented for the movie Green Room. (Tangent: Watch Green Room. But gird your loins if you were especially fond of Anton Yelchin. It’s nasty. I watched it way sooner than I should have.)

Anyway, they’re apparently super into Norse stuff and vikings in general, because White People, or Superior Warrior Race, or something. Making Captain America a Nazi sympathizer was bad enough. Handing him Thor’s hammer and declaring him “worthy” of it is SO MUCH WORSE.

Once upon a time, I decided to do a Disney Princess retrospective. I got stuck after Aladdin because Pocahontas comes immediately after that one and I hated it, BUT. I did review 1991's Beauty and the Beast before I cashed out. (Side note: One day I am going to go back and fix all the dead links and filtered image uploads in my port over from LJ, but today is not that day.)

In the ongoing trend of Disney swallowing its own tail, I mean going after nostalgic cash grabs, I mean creating live action reinventions of their most beloved animated features, the next one in the queue is my mother's very favorite Disney movie. I also have a strong amount of personal fondness for it, and Belle is probably my favorite Disney princess after Elsa in Frozen. (Tiana from the criminally under-appreciated Princess and the Frog is tied in that second-place slot, by the way.) It's been on my list since I found out it was happening. Regardless of the stellar cast and gorgeous trailer, there was no way I was going to not see this movie in theaters, with Mom.



But here's why I'm talking about it today: They are making LeFou gay. Let the overreactive pearl-clutching begi--WELL DAMN, THAT DIDN’T TAKE LONG.
