Japanese child actress Mana Ashida (little Mako) was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.

My Neighbor Guillermo Del Toro.

He’s (Moffat) got this obnoxious tendency of reducing female characters to orbiting moons rather than their very own planets

S.E. Smith, "Steven Moffat, I am over your Lady Issues." (via dmigod)

I know I’ll probably get rotten tomatoes thrown at me for this, but I’m not really a fan of Amy Pond. And that’s not her fault, but the fault of the way she’s written, as a constant foil for the Doctor and as yet another woman who falls hopelessly in love with him and doesn’t quite know when to quit. Even as she’s married in heterosexual dreamland with Rory (look at how fast that ended), she’s still thinking about the Doctor. Her whole life is basically defined by him, and when she attempts to strike out on her own—say, as a model—she gets punished for it by being, you know, whisked away to a Dalek prison planet/asylum. When her characterisation isn’t about her relationship with the Doctor, it’s about her relationship with her fiance and later spouse; nowhere in here is there room for Amy to be herself.

GROOT TO THE RESCUE: Kudos to Vin Diesel for Speaking Against Rigged Game. Mia Grace was Robbed of Opportunity.

Jimmy Kimmel Live’s Marvel “Trivia Game” was a shameless PR stunt and usage of 5 year old Mia Grace (known Marvel comics aficionado).
I’m so happy and thankful that Vin Diesel called the show out, during the game, for it having the buzzers rigged. (The actors’ buzzer wasn’t buzzing at all. Just Mia’s was functional.)

Having the game rigged so she would win was total bullshit. Just watching this play out on screen made me pissed off.

  • At the start of the game Mia was shy, but you could see she was expecting to actually play them and have a real competition.
  • As the game progressed it was obvious she was figuring out what was happening. (This was way before Mr. Diesel came out to play his round with her.)
  • You could see on her face that she was becoming visibly upset by how things were being run. (Then Mr. Diesel spoke out about the rigged buzzer.)
  • She had a hurt/dejected look on her face at the end of the game.

How could the people of the show think Mia needed the buzzers to be rigged so she could win? Yes, she is young, but she is obviously knowledgeable.

Mia could have spent days if not longer studying up on what she would need to know for this “Trivia Game” so she could compete with the people who actually play these characters. Her anticipation would have been tremendous. Only then to come to the competition, that she trained for so she could win on her own merit, that was rigged for her to win. It must have been a terrible letdown.

You could tell she wanted to prove herself, but wasn’t allowed to. Her true moment was stolen from her by adults who would rather use her for PR then actually give her a true moment of pride.

Jeff is live-tweeting, but not answering any fan questions. Hmmm….I WONDER WHY? He’s hella scared.

He’s so useless as a producer, showrunner, and writer. Is it at all shocking that he would be useless at PR opportunities too?

If he can’t face the fans and actually own up to his bullshit then why is he allowed to run a program that generates a shit load of money.

Wait, can you explain what holland said when she called Jeff Davis out for queer baiting?? Thanks!

She called out the scene between Kira/Malia, when they were dancing. She called them faux-lesbians because it was a pointless scene that didn’t mean anything. 

Those type of scenes are pointless and demeaning. The show is more interested in the sexualization and exploitation of LGBTQA people rather than having their lives explored like they are actual human beings. Heck, they’re plenty happy to trot out token LGBTQA characters to provide nothing more than a faux-diversity. This show promised us to be so much more. I guess that was just more bait to chum the water with.
