But I agree with you. It bothers me that I’m always told that I do strong female characters. When in reality, I look at my characters and I feel like they were all broken. They all came from a very devastating past. They were trying to achieve something, they had hope, and they wanted to get someplace, like everything other character that has a meaningful and relevant arc in the story.

It’s because we don’t really know women. We don’t write women accurately. We don’t see women the way that we should see women as a society, as a human race. When you see a real woman, you shouldn’t be saying she’s strong, you should be saying she’s real.

I’m not saying that Gamora is an exception, but you look at my character in Columbiana, and she’s stealthy, she’s agile, she’s physical. But even if I wasn’t physically agile, she would still carry the baggage of whatever happened in my childhood. And I handle myself in the way that I feel a woman should be. I don’t create it. It’s just something that comes natural.

So when people think they are paying me a compliment, in reality what we are saying as a society and as an art society, is that we need to focus more on the real aspect of what a woman is, and not the superficial cosmetic features of a woman as a muse to inspire us to create calendar girls. To create bombshells. To create serviceable characters, beautiful paintings of the girl with a pearl earring: if there’s nothing there behind it, it’s just her face - what’s the story?

rutgerhauer-favoriteactor:

Rutger Hauer as a medieval knight in one of the best fantasy films ever made “Ladyhawke” (1985) directed by Richard Donner.

One more interesting fact:

Several different hawks were used. One to sit on Rutger Hauer’s arm and another for the flying scenes. A third proved to be mostly unusable, as it enjoyed Hauers company so much that it would ruffle it feathers when seated on his arm, making it look more like a chicken than a stately hawk.

I wish I could watch this movie again and enjoy it, but the soundtrack has not aged well. 

Maybe I could watch with the sound off and the subtitles on?

Ahhhh! I loved this movie as a kid! So romantic! Rutger & Michelle were transcendentally beautiful.

Matthew Broderick…well, there was a really fake English accent happening.

But the romance!

So happilyshanghaied mentioned she’d pull something together, but since she hasn’t, so I’m shooting for the moon and hoping to land among the stars with some reasonable options for Saturday, August 2! No chosen time, yet. (also paging: vmsteenbeans, lilamadison11, vmreborn,

I was thinking Rosa or Landmarc (the place we are late dinner last time in TWC)

I say… let’s mix it up and go with Rosa? (Pretty sure we’d all be made pretty happy by some margs) say 5:30? I’ve just put in for a 5:30 reservation for 7 people on OpenTable just so we have it. If numbers change, let me know. And if anyone wants my cell number, shoot me an ask.

Need a head count!!

I’m in. 5:30 at Rosa.

Can we do a little later? I need to help get dinner ready for my boys before I leave. They are a bit of a challenge…

I can do later too. It’s better for me too. But I know everyone’s schedule is different. I’m flexible.

Later is fine, I’ll work it out. If 8 is what’s available and works best, let’s do 8. :)

I’ll change it up then.

At Rosa. 7 people. 8 pm. Reservation under my (real) name.

8 pm for 7 people is now gone on Open Table. I could also try calling, but otherwise its 5:30 or 9:30 unless our number of people changes.

Yay! Thanks for setting this up :) xox bigappleelephant

Anonymous said: I read this fic awhile ago but I can't remember where and I'd like to read it again. It was a typical Veronica returns to Neptune story and she sort of burned bridges with Keith and everyone. She runs into Logan who is now a journalist and he gets her a job as a photographer working with one of his exes. It didn't really cast Veronica in a good light but it was interesting. Anyone know it?

Will iZombie ‘Out-Gore’ Walking Dead? Is Veronica Mars Crossover Inevitable? Party Down Crossover?

————-

When the cast and creatives behind The CW’s iZombie dropped by TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con suite, Michael Ausiello fittingly picked their brains about what the midseason drama has in store.

See, the DC Comics-inspired drama stars Rose McIver (Once Upon a Time) as Liv, a go-getter medical resident who finds herself among the “formerly alive” after stumbling upon a zombie feeding frenzy. To keep her undead desires at bay, Liv takes a job at the Seattle coroner’s office, where she can munch on the noodles of murder victims — though in turn, she absorbs some of their memories, and thus proves adept at solving cases.

Robert Buckley (One Tree Hill) plays Liv’s fiancé, newcomer Rahul Kohli is the morgue boss wise to her “condition,” Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings) plays a police detective who avails himself of Liv’s “psychic” skills, while David Anders (Alias) is the villain of the piece, Blaine DeBeers. Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright serve as exec producers.

Yet despite the zombie-fied premise (and Liv’s dietary habit), Thomas states, “We’re not going to out-gore The Walking Dead.”

Also in this video Q&A: Anders raves about his character’s name (and how it could easily pave the way for a visit from Roman DeBeers of Thomas’ Party Down), while Thomas reveals a guest-starring role* that is so perfect for one of his Veronica Mars alumni, it’s even named after said actor. Also, of course, you get a Mars movie sequel update!

*hints: it might be Ryan Hansen!

Cooooool.

A scene before the intro: Ahoy Mateys!

I always found Liam scarier than Aaron Echolls. He was so ruthless and out of control. You literally had no idea what he would do next. Aaron was pretty predictable and cold-blooded, even when his temper got the better of him. Liam - I always imagined - could be laughing and then randomly slice your jugular.
