Cinderella arrives at the ball.
this movie was so important
we had black cinderella, a black fairy godmother, and a filipino prince
like yoOOOOO THIS WAS ‘97 AND PEOPLE ARE SHITTING OVER A CHEERIOS COMMERCIAL TODAY LIKE Y000000
Victor Garber and Whoopi Goldberg parented an Asian prince. Like what more can you ask for?
Whitney Houston as the Fair Godmother… oh shit we got that too!
If you guys look back the 90’s was really good about representation tv execs were starting to wake up. Many movies and tv shows made sure they had characters of a number of ethnicities. Now what happened to that still remains a mystery to me.
Because racists are saying it’s racist to represent other races.
Will the Heroes soundtrack ever be added to iTunes again? It’s an awesome album and I’m sad that it got taken down. Now that there’s a Heroes maxi-series in the works (13 episodes is NOT a mini-series) anyone think that it’s possible for it to up up for public consumption again?

This is an experimental playlist, in that I was trying to contrast the two relationships by using two songs from an artist, one for each Kiltrid and Kiliel. The one in the middle is just sort of to divide the groups, and since I’m using types of light to represent the relationships, I just couldn’t resist. Anyways, I hope you like this if you listen to it, even if the experiment fails.
The idea came to me at like, 2am or something. Don’t expect brilliance.
The other night I re-read an old SG-1 fic of mine (one that until recently has remained almost terminally and forever a WIP). So I took a gamble and put the fic(s) onto AAO3. Loads of hits but NOT ONE Kudos or comment. WTF SG-1 fandom?! WTTFF!!!!
Anyway for those of you who are into Stargate SG-1 (and especially adore Daniel/Vala) I’m linking the fics to you (a little thing I like to call “The Legend of Blades Jackson”-verse) I’ve just decided that until I get a Kudi or a comment I’m not posting any more parts of it because it’s only fair (I hate to be that type of person but I understand why people do that) It’s not fair for the author to post a fic and then get little feedback in return (that is the only thing I see is a hit-count and that’s not the type of feedback I like, lol) I much prefer at the VERY least Kudos (I love comments too) I posted these stories on FF.n a LONG time ago and until recently even if I had written more than I currently have I would’ve had no way to post it (that means I lost the password to that fic account until I did a MASSIVE amount of digging the other night)
Even though I only had about 7 chapters posted (I had two more I didn’t get to tweak and post, that were THISCLOSE to being ready to post when I suddenly lost interest/stamina to finish it (Even though I LOVED writing “Neezer”) and I’m off and on tweaking parts 8 and 9 and might soon start part 10.
Did I mention Feretti is in it? (I hope I haven’t misspelled his last name all through the fic.)
I know “Elizabeth Charming” is technically not supposed to be Sophie but I can’t stop seeing it! (or help looking for Max and Caroline)
I finally remembered the email used for an old FF.N account and and old FictionPress account. As soon as I knew I had them I made note of it in a word doc HOPING to never forget them again!
Saying Happy Valentine’s Day/Night with my favorite Disney couple Eugene/Rapunzel (in their cameo appearance in “Frozen”, which I STILL haven’t seen yet but I WILL buy the DVD and soundtrack eventually.) Now to settle in and watch my V-Day present to me “Austenland” (Honestly I’d be MUCH happier though if Stephenie Meyer had NOTHING to do with it.) GUYS Its has Figwit, Sophie AND Gaius Baltar in it!! How awesome is that?!
If you think about it “Scarlet” is less ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and more “Beauty and the Beast” than the author intended.
Total randomness - After all this is still a book blog (yes it is, if the Hobbit wasn’t a book then it wouldn’t be here in this blog ;-) )
Quite pleased to say that I now have a Mary Bennet collection folder on my kindle. Altogether, only two of them are samples (The Unexpected Miss Bennet” and “The Engagement of Mary Bennet” are the samples) I now own 5 e-books centered around Mary and one I copy-pasted into a text file so I could read it properly on my kindle (Pride and Prometheus by John Kessel, it’s a P&P crossover with Frankenstein aka “The Modern Prometheus”)
The others are:
-Mary Bennet and the Bloomsbury Coven
-Mary Bennet (by Kate Allan)
-Pride and Prejudice Continues: The Forgotten Sister ( by Kyron Pennie)
-The Forgotten Sister ( which is known as “Mary Bennet” in New Zealand and Australia, by Jennifer Paynter) (I loved this book but the ending wasn’t completely to my liking)
-Pride and Prejudice: Mary’s Story
Some of the name are similar so I specified the authors to set them straight.
