First of all, mission accomplished today.

Second of all, Jennifer Jones, you guys, Jennifer Jones. This time last week I didn't even know the rules of curling, and I learned them in time to watch her throw 100%. Jennifer Jones, OMG. (Everyone in Canada who actually follows curling knew this ten years ago. (Warning: lots of justified screaming in that video.))

I have belatedly found the theme song for Arte Regendus, or at least the second half: White Blank Page by Mumford and Sons. Oh lead me to the truth and I/ will follow you for my whole life

According to [personal profile] knumpify the remake of Robocop has a shot of the street where I grew up. Dammit, now I may have to watch that movie. (Secret: all movies are actually set in Toronto. Even if it's supposed to be New York)

I already squeeed about women's ski jumping on [community profile] capslock_dreamwidth; what I didn't know then is that the silver medalist, Daniela Iraschko-Stolz, is an out lesbian (one of seven at the games this year). Also, I have a video of Carina Vogt's win now.

Practicing my links in this post, apparently.

You know, I never thought of myself as a jock. But winter sports, oh I love them so much. And rock climbing. But mostly skiing and women's hockey and figure skating and apparently curling now.


ETA: From [personal profile] staranise: Ellen Page is gay OMG!

From Tumblr, going here because I don't trust Tumblr not to lose stuff:

you know what we need? we need queer romcoms. we don’t need any more sad lifetime movies about queers who end up dead or heartbroken. we don’t need any more real life stories. we need queer romcoms.

ladies falling in love after they stumble against each other on the subway.
guys who work for opposite companies and bicker at the meetings until one of them kisses the other.
a trans lady bartender who always ends up having deep philosophical chats with a drunk girl who gets dumped every week by a different person.
an asexual journalist falling in love with the football player xie interviews every week after the matches, and having cute make outs and a lot of awkwardness around the ace thing with the fight and the ridiculous gesture of love and the make up.
happy fluffy endings after a lot of dumb cute shit happening.
queer rom coms !!!

violsva: Merida from Brave, with the text "Solve all your problems by turning your mother into a bear" (Merida bear)
So I saw Frozen on New Year's with my sister, which was exactly how to do it. I don't know if I like it as a movie (Can't stand the comic relief character, but can't stand Disneyish comic relief in general) but I certainly like the message. It's also one of the Bechdel Test passing movies that outperformed everything else this year. If you want to see it go see it in theatres.

There was a wind chill warning for a bit Thursday and Friday, so I saw it at the perfect time. Not very cold in my apartment, though - in fact I have to remember not to open the door to the boiler room or it gets way too humid here.

On the other hand, it has an awesome triumphant musical number about being yourself and being awesome and abandoning all your friends and relatives and responsibilities so you can be alone for the rest of your life. It's very catchy. Elsa's issues are actually quite a good metaphor for an anxiety disorder, at least at the beginning.

Brain continues attempting to eat itself. We persist.

Took [personal profile] knumpify out to The Bourne Legacy. Lots of fun.

Awesome parkour chase scenes! Is it still parkour if you're on a motorcycle while doing it? Scientists! Evil government officials! Bechdel test passes! Really!

...Lots of gore and violence, and the evil side are really creepily evil. But fun.

I've only seen the third one of the series, once, and I don't think any prior knowledge was necessary to follow the plot.

Also, I am apparently terrible at recognizing characters if they change their haircuts. But we already knew this.
