First, Ozymandias. Worst first, heh.

God that was painful. Not in the good way that Minutemen was, but in the "this is so bad it hurts" way. But then, that's what I expected.

Len Wein once again managed to completely screw up the characterization and turn the story into a total yawnfest. Seriously, I am sick and heavily medicated, and I could have come up with something better than this.

Spoilers and macros and a Monty Python sketch )

And as an extra, the Dollar Bill oneshot, which was sadly also written by Len Wein. Which becomes pretty obvious once you read it because the storytelling device is the same - which is rather silly, because come on, narrating your own autobiography when you're DEAD??? - and the language is pretty similar. Pretty sure Dollar Bill didn't talk like that. Whatever.

Some spoilers )

Once again, my battle cry is "Why couldn't Darwyn Cooke write this one, too???"

So I wrote this fic about Erik Lehnsherr giving some white supremacist Illinois Nazis a whuppin', because my friend Lee asked for it in the comment fic thread over on LJ.

I posted it on AO3, where most people seem to like it.

Except for this one dude. Who filled my precious comment box with the most paranoid, racist, dumbass shit comment ever seen. I deleted the comment as soon as I saw it this morning. Since the guy's not registered on AO3, I couldn't report him.

But before I deleted it, I made a copy for sporking purposes >D
TW for racist shitfuckery. And yes there will be macros. )

So husband and I were in Enschede to buy some stuff and watch Dredd (which btw is pretty boring, imho).

While I was buying a drink, husband discovered something that made both of us go OMG WTF IS THIS SHIT.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you A SHITTON OF BLACKFACE. In a kid's movie. Seriously, how can ANYONE think this is all right? If you want black people in your movie, then CAST motherfucking black people. But don't make a racist mockery out of it.

Here, have a look at that douchebaggery.

Yay quaint racism!

And please don't tell me how that is tradition and actually harmless and blahblah. Germans do that kind of thing, too, what with kids dressing up as the three wise men and one of them doing blackface because they're being Balthasar. I think it's iffy in that case, too, but doing it in a fucking movie is just NO. And IDC about your tradition if it's offensive to other people.

Edit: also, because it just came up while ranting with one of my bbs: it must feel really great, being a black person in the Netherlands and Germany. You get harassed, hunted and even killed by racists and neonazis, but oh, when a white person dresses up in blackface everyone is all "oh isn't that just darling" and then they go on giving money for hunger relief in Africa. Because that makes them feel all warm and fuzzy, helping the poor black children. But don't those darkies dare come over here! That is just so fucked up.
