“Ignoring women may be the show’s blind spot, but it is also one of its major themes. True Detective is explicitly about the horrible things that men do to women, things that usually go unseen and uninvestigated. No one missed Dora Lange. Marie Fontenot disappeared, and the police let a rumor stop them from following up. Another little girl was abducted, and a report was never even filed. “Women and children are disappearing, nobody hears about it, nobody puts it together,” Rust told his boss Sunday night, outlining what he believes is a vast conspiracy in the Bayou. Rust is haunted by women who aren’t there—his ex-wife and his dead daughter—while Marty cannot deal appropriately with the women who are.”—The Horrible Things That Men Do To Women - Willa Paskin (via bleakgrouse)
I watched that episode of Gilmore Girls earlier today in which Rory tries to get a job at The New York Times and fails. All I could do was shake my head. The struggle is too real. If I ever landed a job at NYT, you’d all know I became a “serious” journalist. Maybe when I’m like 35 years old. It’s too high brow and gung ho for me right now.

Whatever someone you become and wherever you are in the world, I’m sending you love. You’re my friend to the end."

“Small side story. Uh, my nine year-old daughter was cast as Loki in her school play and Tom volunteered to give her advice on how to play Loki and he shot a little video on his iPhone and sent it to her, uhm, said a lot of things about the character, but the most important thing he said was that to always remember that Loki is never not having fun.”—Alan Taylor, Director of Thor: The Dark World (via cloudywithachanceofbuckbeak)
It makes me sad that one issue of The Atlantic is $6.99. That is one expensive magazine, my friends. Luckily, we have a thing called the Internet where almost all of the articles are also published. But it’s still NOT THE SAME.
