January 1, 2015: Email Jubilee. I’m doing it. If you emailed me at any point in 2014 or before and I never got back to you, this is the official admission: I am never getting back to you.

If it’s important or you really want a response, please send it again. The mostly-clear inbox (only 4 unread messages! only 12 total things left in the main folder!) means I should have no trouble getting to it. If it’s something you’d just as soon forget by this point too, win-win.

What I wouldn’t give for a Thundercats fanart group that wasn’t 90% weird fetish art of Cheetara.

Someone needs to write a Night Vale/Middle-earth crossover and call it A Blinking Light Up On The Lonely Mountain.

Get on that, fandom.

This is old news, but the kind of old news that deserves to be passed around on a regular basis: the person known as Benjanun Sriduangkaew/Requires Hate/Winterfox/various other aliases is a toxic serial harasser, stalker, blackmailer, and abuser. Believe and support her victims. Don’t give her any credence. Don’t give her the time of day, frankly.

(The closest I’ve ever been to any of her damage is that I was a reader of 50Books_POC, who backed slowly away from the comm after the mods came down on her side. I knew she was bad news. Had no idea until reading this report that she’d kept harassing Rachel Manija Brown for years afterward, let alone that her other abuses ran so far and so deep.)

Haven’t bothered to watch the latest few episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal. No idea when, or if, I’ll feel drawn to go back. Normally I’m a fannish completist, especially when it comes to series I love as much as BSSM…but it’s just been so draining, watching something that could have been so amazing come out with such cheap and joyless excuses for animation, characterization, pacing, drama, everything.

Someone ran the numbers: when you look at the team episodes, the senshi get more screentime knocked out mid-battle than they get fighting. No. Why. No.

Bonus thing: “I watched The Interview with a North Korean defector.” (Spoiler alert: he didn’t care for it.)
