My favorite Trek moment of all series.

The Love Song of Joss Whedon

warpfactornope:

Let us see then, you and I
The silver screen spread like a grey sky
A blank canvas sloppy on the table
Let us see through a cyclopsed camera lense
The waiting cishet dude-bro mens
Of nerdfaced self inserts in his pulp fiction
And the pompous grandiose charmed one-lined diction
Scripts that follow like a tedious arrangement
Of predictable intent
To lead us to an overwhelming question.
Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”
Let us go and make our visit.

On the screen the women come and go
He says he’s feminist, you know

The ne’er-do-well cads surround their heroine
The girls who postcard as his Strong Woman figurine
Slur-licked words in the margins of the script
Lingering lies for his puppeteering pantomime
Written by the book, got awards to prove it
And seeing that it’s just another show, another deal
Let’s just call it done, he’s the one, the real Big Shit

And indeed there will be time
For his yea-sayers to be so inclined to change their minds
Betrayed once, betrayed twice, Et tu Brute again
There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face for his audience that he’ll find
There will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and plays of hands
That lift and drop a question on your plate
Time for you and time for him
And time yet for a hundred decisions
And for a hundred visions and revisions
Yet always one that keeps the mewling quim.

On the screen the women come and go
He says he’s feminist, you know.

And indeed there will be time
To wonder does he dare does he really dare
On the backs of women ascend his star-studded stair
A grey fedora resting on his balding hair
(they will say, how does he do it to them
to preserve his fantasies like it says on the tin)
He forgot Hill, forgot Wanda, and forgot River Tam
But he’ll call action! and just not give a damn.

Does he dare
Preserve the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which nothing will reverse

For I have known him already, known him well
Have known his Starks, Xanders, and Lokis
He has measured his life in oki-dokeys
Listen to the voices dying with a dying call
Beneath the fridge within his own room
but he’s a feminist right? how dare we presume.

he grows bold, he grows bold
swallowed hook, line, and sinker sold.

See how he struts like Stark? Action here, fist there, c’mon bros
Look at him build the gate, standing watch at the close
Whedon, Whedon where does your garden grow?

I have heard him waxing long beyond the grave
Of ladies’ will and bodies too, autonomy forgot
White nerds, they’re heroes too we must forget them not

Listen to his bloody siren call wailing from the sea
By languid lagoons sour with forgotten girls
Shiny, pretty toys for him to dance and twirl.

On the screen the women come and go.
He says he’s feminist, you know.

dont look at me

I’m listening to some Swedish hiphop right now and Will’s dancing syncs to the beat and I may have laughed so hard I cried

Look at his face! His anger fuels his dancing. “EVERY PELVIS THRUST BRINGS ME CLOSER TO PROVING IT WAS YOOOOOOUUUUUUU!!!!!!

The Gifset of Rassilon

Rassilon had a whole lot of stuff. I bet cleaning out the Closet of Rassilon would take you a while…

When you play the Game of Rassilon, you win or you regenerate. So you actually have a number of chances to win.

Also, I suspect the Record of Rassilon is an LP of Rassilon playing the Harp of Rassilon. In the Key of Rassilon.

It’s like Will never learned how most other people sit down on chairs, but everyone in the future is so respectful of cultural differences and quirks like that, no one ever said anything.

Yeah, I have always wondered what was up with that. Did Frakes sit down with himself and say: How do I make this Riker character more standouty? I know, I’ll have him throw his leg over the back of chair to sit down!

Note that as the show went on and a certain person’s uniform kept getting tighter around the middle this happened way less often. I’m just sayin’.

I’d guess that it’s an acting thing; it lets Frakes enter the scene and sit down quickly while keeping his face in the frame. Look at the last example, where Riker and some other person enter and sit down together. Riker is seated, balanced, looking up, and already speaking before the other person has finished sitting down. (Then he can make that dramatic odalisque pose.) In many of the scenes, the camera is focused on Riker as he is sitting, often when he’s speaking. The Riker maneuver means he doesn’t have to turn himself or the chair, or bend awkwardly, which might disrupt the shot. These all seem minor, but they can be very important for a director on a (time and money) budget. It took so long for many of us to notice the Riker maneuver (the Picard maneuver was much more noticeable, I think) because the directors are usually making the most of what it provided.

Also, look at some of those chairs. Some of them, particularly the Ten Forward ones, look pretty small, and might not swivel. How would you sit down on them? Remember, you don’t have time to adjust yourself when you do. Also, you can’t look down.

Finally, Jonathan Frakes is 6’4”. This is just how you deal with chairs when you’re tall.

Do you see a Dalek or a shower?

I saw a shower, I think this firmly cements my status as “not a Doctor Who fan”.

wait but what is the second line supposed to be

idk a handrail or something(I’m sure it’s a dalek but that’s not how my brain parsed it when I saw it.)

I’m just worried that the person in a skirt/dress is going to fall over.

Kelly: There’s one thing that Landis (the director) said that he was most impressed with Tim in this, and that he actually stands up and…steps backwards over his chair - and he’s tall enough to be able to do that.Steve: Yeah, he - like he’s being pulled on a rope over the chair. It’s one of the great subtle moments - I’m sorry, one of the few subtle moments on our show.(later)Steve: Oh, here’s Tim’s - here he is. There we go. Look at that.James: This looks like it was in reverse.Steve: Yeah, you actually need to have legs like Tim’s that go on forever. 


You know, this is only a subtle, impressive thing for all you short people. This is just how you deal with chairs when you’re tall.

How did Adventure Time become better than most live-action TV shows?

A tip of the hat to Charlie Jane Anders at io9 for asking the question, "How did Adventure Time become better than most live-action TV shows?”

Seriously. I can’t stop thinking about Monday’s episode of Adventure Time, which was one of the most intense things I’ve seen in ages. The final scene, where Marceline and Ice King have this weird duet, made me lose my shit and keeps popping into my head. It’s rare that any television show gets its hooks into your brain like that, but especially a kid’s cartoon. It’s kind of nuts.

Read the whole piece here.

welovefineshirts:

Many thanks to Charlie Jane Anders at io9 for including some of our contest winners in this really excellent feature on how Adventure Time is so very, very awesome. (And it is!)

FIST TAP!

This is pretty much exactly what I was thinking watching the new episode. Then I went to go catch up on this season of Breaking Bad. I watch a lot of TV, and I love a lot of TV, but there are a few things that just make me so excited. Adventure Time, Breaking Bad, and The Booth at the End, and TBatE isn’t even broadcast in the U.S.

Incidentally, I would like to see more ficcing fans get into The Booth at the End because I’d love to see some crossovers.
