Splice Today just posted my new article on geeks, elitism, and what it means to be a “real fan,” so you should check it out. This is something that’s been on lots of people’s minds lately and I wanted to weigh in. Remember, anyone can like what they like—it’s exploitation we need to be concerned with, and that’s something that knows no gender.
1) Saw The Avengers for a second time with Kevin and Ryan. It was their first time seeing it. They loved it and so did the theater we were in. It is so worth it a second time around. Again, one of the few movies I’ve seen twice in theaters … and I don’t care because it’s such a well-done superhero-action-popcorn-blockbuster.
2) Finished season 1 of Avatar: The Last Airbender. SO GOOD! I think I’ll hold off on season 2 for now … just so I can work on other things, like some job applications, getting yearbook signatures, cleaning up clutter and CDs at the station …
3) Sent in my final piece of work: a short “in conclusion” thing for the end of my independent study.
*curls up in bed* Hm … too late to read … I think I’ll make some time tomorrow for reading. I want to finish up A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius ASAP so I can get to either A Clash of Kings or Death By Black Hole.
