They Just Don’t Care

It’s Time for Hogwash!

Before I continue, I am very sorry for not updating as frequently.  I’ve moved across the country, from the East coast to the West coast, and it’s been really stressful and there’s still a crap-ton for me to do.  Plus, I started a new job today so yeah, I have been busy. So I was…

Subverting Expectations

Last Friday, Netflix added Masters of the Universe: Revelation and pretty much every pop culture YouTuber I subscribe to has been talking about the fallout all weekend. Sometime last year, Clownfish TV had announced that one of their trusted sources claimed that the main character of the Master of the Universe franchise, He-Man, would be…

Absolutely Despicable

What would you do if you had raised a ton of money for suicide prevention and sex trafficking awareness, and a big-name director appears on your celebratory livestream to talk about your achievement, only for that person to basically call you a racist and a bigot before saying literally anything else? You’d be pretty pissed…

This Crap Needs to Stop

So I woke up this morning to Jon Del Arroz calling for everyone to cancel Disney+. He didn’t really say why, so I figured it was just a call to do so in general, because we all know what a dumpster fire Disney has been these past few years. Then I log in to my…

Self-cancelling? Not quite.

I know – it’s the day after the 2020 Presidential election, and I promised a post about it, but nothing much has happened, other than the Dems and the MSM calling certain states for Biden, and steadfastly refusing to call obvious GOP victories for Trump, and we’re pretty much at a stalemate right now. Something…

Shut Up and Sing? (Part Two)

I used to completely agree with that sentiment, back when I was younger. Now I’m nearly forty and my feelings on that sentiment have changed somewhat. I realized that I don’t mind it when a famous person actually says something sensible and thought-provoking, even if I disagreed with it. What I didn’t like was when a famous person…

Consequences

So my post on the cancellation of Ember Days by Alexandra Duncan has made some waves. It was posted on Free Republic and, of course, Bethany C Morrow herself has taken notice of it. She is, predictably, angry over it. Not just angry at me for daring to disagree with her or her fellow authors,…

Bethany C Morrow Gets YA Novel Cancelled

UPDATE:  There have been some minor developments in this story, and I cleaned up the language for my Freepers.  Also, I had forgotten an archive link, so I added it. Another day, another cancellation in the YA literature world. This time, author Alexandra Duncan has “voluntarily” withdrawn her book, Ember Days, because she failed to…
