Sorry not sorry

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is really bad. Not "Sharknado" bad (because that's so bad it's good) but commits the worse crime of being boring. Of being unimaginative. There is nothing new to say, nothing new to do, nothing new they're going to explore. I said last night on Twitter that it would have been an amazing show in 1986. It would have felt like Indiana Jones on TV.

But in 2013? No. And I'm SAD about that. (And I seriously do not get what has errbody fanning themselves over Coulson. He looks like a tax adjuster.)

ION, I needed a break from writing OMH (because I'm stuck on bad parts of my life and how to tell that without it sucking) so I switched over to writing fanfic (Sterek). And I wanted it to be short but I don't know how it's going to be shorter than 25K. WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE.

Someone make Sally Derg stop being an idiot when the bus pulls up with the kids, please. OMG SHUT UP DOGGIE STAHP.

Joss has trained me to expect groundbreaking, I guess. I can totally see how this show could be a comfort for those super into the Avengers/superhero fandoms, but it just isn't for me.

I'm seeing a lot of "fans self" and "unf" on my Tumblr feed re: Coulson, so I didn't get it. But to each his own, I know.

As groundbreaking as Buffy was, though, it's first season kinda sucked. Same thing with Angel. Same with Firefly, albeit that was partly Fox's fault. Dollhouse, again kinda sucked in the beginning. It always takes Whedon a little while to find his groove.

Yeah, I was like...what? But aside from those whose tastes run that way, I think a lot of tumblr expresses itself via lust terms even when what they're expressing is more affection or other appeals than attractiveness. I can't cite any specific examples but it's something I've noticed over the years when people get really hyped over something but an individual's overall reactions aren't really attraction but excitement. My theory is that lust terms are used as another form of exaggeration.


Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
