Science fiction has been used as an escape for a long time for many people. I am no different. Though my first introduction to sci-fi was kid’s cartoons, I have grown up with science fiction. It has been one of the most watched genres of my entire life. It has kept me grounded and let […]
We’re gearing up for the Super Bowl (meaning party food), which means we’re bookending this week with some sports news.
Have you ever watched a movie and immediately knew that this would forever be one of your favorites, that you were watching something that would always be special?
If anything captivated ladyblogland this past week, it was Ferguson. Our PoC news captured a few articles yesterday. I’ve rounded up a few, plus some other articles of interest.
I have watched the new Star Wars cartoon three times now. Why three? It is fantastic. It’s Disney’s first real Star Wars project since acquiring Lucasfilm; if this project is any indication, I have serious hope for Star Wars Rebels and fair to middling hope for Episode VII (because Abrams).
From Miss America to Shonda Rhimes, ladyblogland has it all!
I’ve been thinking a lot about the comments made by Noah co-screenwriter Ari Handel that have been circulating recently. Asked about the extreme whiteness of the cast, Handel said that the “the race of the individual doesn’t matter.” Presumably this was meant to be a defense.
In my search for sci-fi and fantasy resources, I stumbled upon some great Tumblrs for (mostly) sci-fi and fantasy fans. What’s great about Tumblr is the ability for these fans, even those who may have at one time felt marginalized by the larger fandoms, to be able to reach out to each other and find […]
This isn’t a definitive list of women of color in film. This isn’t a “best of” list, or a list of the most complicated or progressive characters in science-fiction or fantasy. This is simply a list of women of color in science-fiction and fantasy films. I tried to make it as full as possible, but […]
Last week, I asked for some suggestions of women of color in science fiction and fantasy films. This week, I wanted to highlight an actress who isn’t usually thought of as a science-fiction/fantasy actress in the way that someone like Gina Torres may be, but who has been quietly carving herself a little niche in […]
I spent the weekend exploring Baltimore and I found a lot to love in charm city. Equally as lovely is this week’s roundup of everything weird and wonderful in ladyblogland.
Hello, readers! It’s a gorgeous day outside in Seattle, but I am going to be inside, as being employed at the library means far too much time thinking up titles to request. I thought I had seven holds yesterday and walked out with sixteen items. I finished Hold Me Closer Necromancer last night, and I […]
Greetings, one and all. Shall we take a stroll through a few internet neighborhoods and see what’s been happening in Ladyblogland? This week’s feminist dispatches center around our entertainment.
Last night, my science fiction choice for marathon-ing was based on nostalgia- I watched Farscape. As a kid, Farscape was a big, beautiful show, and one that seemed so grown-up while still being full of adventure. Watching it as an adult, I found that the way I appreciated the show changed to focus more on […]
