I finally saw Star Trek! It was awesome. There were space battles and McCoy kept saying "My God, man!" and "Damn it, Jim!" And Zachary Quinto definitely used to have an eyebrow piercing. When his face is like 15 feet high, it's kinda obvious. But I can''t find any pictures of him with it pierced, which is distressing me. (None of those things count as spoilers, right? Spoilers for Zachary Quinto's face?)( Star Trek and Terminator Salvation (if anyone cares about that) Spoilers. Also minor emo over the lack of women in movies, which probably deserves a warning. )
I'm feeling rather disenchanted with bandom over the lack of women, too. The other day I read this really cool fic, and then I realized it was like 40,000 words and no women had lines. At all. And statistically, I think it's safe to assume the author was female. And that's not exactly unusual in bandom, the lack of female characters, I mean.
And, I'm reading the 2nd Discworld book, and there aren't any women in that, either!
I have opinions on the whole DOMA brief fiasco, too, but that's a little too sad for me to get in to now. The lack of women in fiction is obnoxious and I really want it to change, but it doesn't hurt my feelings. That brief is mean.
In happier Star Trek thoughts, I took my little brother to see it and he loved it. So at least I'm contributing to the next generation of geeks.
Oh, and I was really excited to see the Sherlock Holmes trailer all ginormous. Although, fuck, now that I think about it, that movie won't be any better, female character-wise. Grr.
