Well at least my very worst fears did not become real. Don't get me wrong this is bad. Very bad. But only as bad as was to be expected. We will get a row of Nazis in the government now. And the conservatives will destroy our social security system.

Austria is a rich country, but not that rich.  This will hurt a lot of people who voted for them. All we can do is document and protest. They have no one to blame anymore and that will destroy them over the next years.

Signup for round 23 is happening right now, and we're all looking forward to the new round. Meanwhile, thanks to [personal profile] slaymesoftly, there's an opportunity to look back as well! We know the School Hard event might have been confusing to navigate because of all the links to other sites... so we made you an index post that's ALL links. Enjoy!

Alien(s)

I've been watching the Alien movies, because Walmart had the first four bundled together for $10. The second one was indeed less boring than the first one. The third one I skipped, because if there's anything I don't need, it's Ripley in an attempted-rape scenario. Also it just sounded dumb, and way to completely undermine the second movie!!! (I read up on it on wikipedia.)

So I'm watching the fourth one now, and wow, it is... very different. The whole look has changed. Ripley has changed dramatically, for obvious plot-related reasons. And boy howdy is the third one gross on the sexism/sexual harassment/sexual objectification scale. "Who do I have to fuck to get out of here"???? Look, Ripley's a different person in this one, but she did not need to be different in that way. Female characters can be harder and darker and more ambiguous WITHOUT EDGY PATRIARCHAL BARGAIN SHIT. And that one pan up the secondary female character's ass? For no reason at all? Ew ew ew. Thanks for nothing, Joss Whedon.

If it weren't for all that crap, though, I think the fourth one might actually be my favorite? Don't get me wrong, it's VERY STUPID, but it's more my kind of movie. Winona Ryder is freaking adorable, and I'm very into Ripley's new ambiguous vibe (and the reasons behind it).

Damn, this is good. And painfull to watch. Atwood really refuses to look away from the horrible places. She's like a feminist Steven King in a way.
