Things I Learned from Starkid: Female... →
I’m reblogging this because it says a lot of the things that I wanted to say and makes some really great points. thingsilearnedfromstarkid: To begin talking about this issue, let me set a scene for you. Let’s say you’ve been petrified and are lying in the Hospital Wing, but as is mentioned later in the storyline, you can see and hear what’s going on. Your boyfriend comes in and gets a...

Context is Key
Okay, the title relates to both the quote surrounding an infamous scene in Looking for Alaska and the author’s statement about this. And why yes, that’s TWO John Green posts in one month. (under the cut because spoilers,(debate over) sex, and swearing)[[MORE]] However, this post is about his novel, Looking for Alaska, and some of the um- how do I put this?- criticism towards his...
A crash-course style open letter to John Green
Dear John Green, Apparently, it is your birthday today. I’m not a hundred percent sure that this is true as I just saw it on my tumblr dash. Let me check Wikipedia. Okay. It is. The thing is, before I discovered Nerdfightaria through my friend Marygrace, I probably wouldn’t have done that. So many of your videos (and Hank’s, but it’s not his birthday today so…)...

Um spoilers for JMOMS? That’s about it. Under the cut because I know a lot of my followers don’t care. [[MORE]]10:00: Mugglecast- This was pretty much what you’d expect. It had the basic format of a mugglecast episode. There was some discussion over how The Casual Vacancy relates to fandom and they answered audience questions. I went up to the mic and didn’t get chosen....
This really fries my waffles
Okay. I just have to refudiate refute some things I’ve seen on Facebook that prove that nobody, like, does, any like, f***ing research(1) regarding the Chick-Fil-A controversy. First, let’s explain what’s going on. Chick-Fil-A founder and president S. Truett Cathy has come under fire for donating over five million dollars over the past decade to Anti-LGBT organizations (2)....
Trying out a narrative essay. Fun stuff!
When I was in middle school, I figured out that in between the time when the bus dropped me off in the morning and the time school actually began, I could go to the school library and check out a book. This daily ritual is how I discovered my love of Cliched YA novels. I’d read until the already barely distinguishable plots blended togehter into a sludgy mix of irredeemable mean girls, teen...
I'm just going to leave this poem I wrote right...
[[MORE]] The visions of romance were over Once I reached that uncomfortable phase Known to most as “growing up” Which, I realize now, Is just the moment Where the cones kick in And you see The world in color Instead of black and white It’s hard to believe in the triumph of good When images of corruption and oppression Are shown nightly at 6:00 and 11:00 And it’s hard to believe in...
Late night musings on why movie musicals aren't a...
This is from my new pop culture/media blog. mediateen: So, I was looking through Netflix looking for something to watch and review for everyone, and I naturally went to the “musical” section. It’s kind of a good starting point for me because I know more than the average person about musicals It is a storytelling medium I love I have a general idea of how the Broadway community works overall...
An Open Letter to Team StarKid
Dear Team StarKid, You need to plan your events better, because they always seem to fall really close to when I have my history AP tests. Granted, I got a 4 on US History last year even though Starship premiered on YouTube that weekend, but still, not cool. It’s almost sounding like a “the dog ate my homework” thing. “Oh I didn’t do as well as I would have on my AP...

As someone who’s going to college in less than a year and a half, this is one of my major concerns. I have no idea if there’s still going to be a recession when I get out of college, so society is increasing the pressure not to get a useless major so you’re not “wasting” your education. The thing is, all of my interests, with the exception of psychology, are all...
Why Twilight is better than The Hunger Games
Once I found out that the dystopian young adult novel series The Hunger Games was being compared to Stephenie Meyer’s The Twilight Saga, I was beyond offended. How could they compare such a great work of genius to a piece of garbage that does not deserve to be called literature? So, on April 1st, I am going to sit down and explain to you why exactly Meyer’s novels are superior to the...
Musical Misconceptions 1:
littlemissmars: Songwriting is easy—just write what you feel and let it come to you. Anyone who says that songwriting is writing your emotions is either a liar or Taylor Swift. I like to think that there are two components in writing music: the music itself and the emotion that it conveys. I don’t like to think of lyrics as a writing component but rather a subject that falls under emotion,...

The Midnight Ride of John Quincy Adams
I am a high schooler trying to get into the college of my choice, which means rigorous classes, and a ton of studying for my SAT. Recently, I was doing the latter when the former came into play. I was looking at the grammar section of my SAT prep book when I found a historical inaccuracy that anyone who paid attention in US History (1) would spot. Let’s see if you can. The answer: John...
Fun! Fun! Fun! Fun!
I was naïve to hope that the buzz of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” had died down. Right as I spent a Friday without hearing it last Friday, the day after I found out that Glee was doing a cover*. Granted, the fact that I hadn’t heard it may have been due to the fact that over half of the top people in my class were sitting in a quiet room above the gym taking the AP US History test**. As I...
