So, when I'm not mainlining Japanese kids' superhero shows, my media intake tends to be queer cinema, because it tends either to be awesome, or to be awesomely bad. (And even when it's just mediocre, the pandering tends to be towards those who like their eye candy male, so there's at least that.)

Those of you who follow my twitter feed will already know, though, that I just encountered the most miserable piece of shit to ever call itself a movie. I have suffered the Star Wars Holiday Special. This was ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE WORSE.

I really don't even know if I can put the horror into words. Although, those of you who follow my twitter feed saw my attempts throughout. While there are some understandable descriptions of some of the ways in which this film is awful there, it's by NO means comprehensive. Merely scratching the surface.

The worst part is... you know what, scratch what I was going to say. The worst part is ALL OF IT. (Except the one actor, who was at some point in post-production, someone tried to make changes to make us think the movie was about him. It only made things worse, because then the movie WASN'T, but they'd gone out of their way to make sure we were wondering "what if?")

I don't even know, y'all.

(Someday, I hope to inflict this on a mass of people so that I'm not the only person I know who has suffered it. So no, you're not getting the name of it. Nyah.)

Instead, I've gotten two textbook derails, plus at least two-and-a-half "SEMANTICS" derails specific to the issue from someone I know isn't a troll, over on twitter.

GODDAMNIT.

(And this isn't even getting into the sexism from the show that started this.)

ETA: My crushing letdown is noted. How magnanimous.

Author's notes: This is such awful, wonderful crack. I have no idea where it came from. I mean, I literally went from having NO INSPIRATION ;_; to having this, fully formed, in my head. IDK, this is how my brain works.

Okay, so. During my Native American Lit class this evening, one of my classmates' presentation was on how he's following the Red Path and becoming Lakota. My elderly, not-a-drop-of-Lakota-let-alone-any-other-nation-blood-in-him classmate.

There is something indescribably uncomfortable* about that, though I can't fault him for having investigated Lakota culture, or for having participated whole-heartedly in ceremonies, and so on. If the Lakota have no problem teaching him, and he really wants to learn for the learning's sake, and participate for the participation's sake, that's great. What bothers me, I think, is that researching Shintoism and taking it on wholeheartedly as your belief system doesn't make you Japanese, nor does converting to Islam make you Arabic, and so on. Yes, Lakota spirituality is incredibly much tied into their culture as a whole, but at the same time it isn't their culture as a whole, and... I don't know. There's just something kind of ugly about it.

Then I come home, and sitting in the middle of the kitchen table is a postcard inviting my little brother to Living Stations of the Cross on Good Friday which... a bit excessive, but whatever. What's Catholicism if not gaudy religion? Then I actually read the thing. It says, I shit you not, "All are welcome to join in and commemorate the suffering and death of Our Lord Jesus."

Commemorate. Suffering and death.

THAT CANNOT BE WHAT THEY MEAN. WHAT.

Why can't the world be normal every now and then?

*This word was initially "wrong," but on rereading, that is not the word I meant to put there holy crap.

I've had the sequel to Sideline Secrets on my hard drive for a while, 'cause the first one was one of those awful movies with just enough unintentionally awesome moments (like anything involving the Awesome Topless Chick) to be worth it, but I didn't get around to watching it until just now.

One, there's a hell of a lot more cock in this one.

Two, IT'S FUCKING HILARIOUS. Like, it's objectively a better-made movie. There's only a couple lines of badly-looped dialogue, it doesn't run twice as long as it needs to, and even though most of it fails, the director does at least make some attempts at symbolism.

However: it's about an hour of disjointed scenes with the barest of patchwork plot actually moving things along. The movie expects you to accept that because we keep following the same characters that something is going on, but that's not true at all. For fuck's sake, what looks to be the main plot turns out to be dropped entirely as it's just the trigger for what turns out, in he last ten minutes at most, to be what's actually happening.

It comes out of fucking NOWHERE and it's AWESOMELY BAD. Depending on who comes up to Sandusky this summer it might be group viewing.

Okay, you remember the Ninja Turtles? Remember how the cartoon was awesome when we were little, and then there were the live-action movies that were also awesome (though even at that age you knew better than to speak ever again of the third one after having seen it)? If you're too young, just go with this, because it's leading to a point about Power Rangers that you probably won't be old enough to properly get, anyway.

Well, remember how, somewhere along the line, there was a misguided attempt at a live-action series on Fox Kids that included a fifth, female turtle? I can understand if you've repressed.

WELL THOSE FIVE LIVE-ACTION TV TURTLES JUST RANDOMLY SHOWED UP AT THE END OF THE THIRD EPISODE OF POWER RANGERS IN SPACE. ASTRONEMA (WHO HAS ALREADY CHANGED HAIR COLOR AND STYLE ONCE) HAS JUST BEAMED THEM OUT OF THEIR SEWER FOR GOD-KNOWS-WHAT PURPOSE. WHAT.

For things like this.

Also:

I'm totally late posting about this, but I want to give my friends gifts this year even though I am of the FUCKING POOR, so I'm going to write a ficlet/flopsy/drabble/whatever for everyone who asks. I can write something original from a prompt, or you can hand me a fandom I know and characters (just not Hedwig; love it, but I'd never do it justice).

Or you could ask for poetry. Whatevs. Just ask soon, or I may not have it for you in time for gift-giving deadlines.
