Geeky lady of a certain age, I have my cats for company and fannish friends in the magic box. I dabble in strange corners of the internet, offering ideas and images both silly and profound. I love the ocean, green and growing things, laughter, social justice and comics, to name a few. Follow at your own risk.

Toymakers will tell you they won’t sell enough, and movie people will point to the two terrible superheroine movies that were made and say, You see? It can’t be done. It’s stupid, and I’m hoping that The Hunger Games will lead to a paradigm shift. It’s frustrating to me that I don’t see anybody developing one of these movies. It actually pisses me off. My daughter watched The Avengers and was like, “My favorite characters were the Black Widow and Maria Hill.” and I though, Yeah, of course they were. I read a beautiful thing Junot Diaz wrote: “If you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at a cultural level, any reflection of themselves.” - Joss Whedon

Joss Whedon’s 2013 Wesleyan commencement speech:

So here’s the thing about changing the world. It turns out that’s not even the question, because you don’t have a choice. You are going to change the world because that is actually what the world is.

You do not pass through this life, it passes through you. You experience it, you interpret it, you act, and then it is different. That happens constantly. You are changing the world. You always have been.

And now it becomes real on a level that it hasn’t been before.

“We should start shooting I think in February… I didn’t think I was going to do the second but I had an idea for it before I’d figured out the first one. You go into a movie not assuming there’s going to be… I’ve seen plenty of movies that were the first part of the trilogy that never happened and it’s terrible. You don’t save anything for the trip back. Having said that, though, I did sort of know, “Well, if they were to come back, I know what’s going to happen… It’s going to be awful.”
