ROCK THE REAPERS
Our Thor, who art in Asgard,
heavy be thy Hammer,
thy thunder come,
thy will be done,
on Midgard as it is in Valhalla.
Give us this day our daily Gamma rays.
And smash that puny god,
as we smash those
who invade our planet.
And lead us not into Captain Americas jock strap,
but deliver us from the evil of 30’s hygiene.
For Stark is Iron Man,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Avengers Assemble.
Best post ever.
This is for you, Pau.
Speaking of movies, this is basically Inuit Beowulf.
It was written, produced, directed, and acted entirely by Inuit people. I think a lot of people might be interested in Medieval Inuit art and literature, and this is a pretty great example.
You can watch and download the entire trilogy here for free (but donate if you can!!!); Atanarjuat is the first film and takes place around 1000 A.D.-ish. It also won a LOT of awards. Keep in mind: it’s entirely in Inuktitut, with English subtitles.
You know, it’s very weird. I read on Tumblr, I read online articles, and so many women talk about hanging out in male-dominated spaces, watching while men do whatever Men Thing, and… I don’t have this experience at all. (There’s an example in an article here, where two women bond about the experience of watching men play music in college.)
I’m wondering why. The only environment I can think of that I’m often in that’s noticeable for its genderskew is gaming.
I don’t like that, but… honestly, aside from maybe that, I don’t think I’ve ever had this sense of being the lone female that I hear or read about so often from other women.
Do I just have a strange life?
I sometimes wonder this myself. I’ve never been the sole female in a group of men, with the exclusion of the time I still practiced kendō regularly. I was the only female at the dōjō while everybody else was an older military policeman. But I’m not sure I can really count that in, because our dōjō was pretty heavy on discipline and there was simply no fucking around like in most other spaces, hence all interaction between these guys and with me was kept very official, in a sense. Can’t claim there was much to observe.
Then again, I was the, uh, “vice sensei”, often teaching in the absence of our actual sensei. That probably skewed up some of the “just us boys” experience as well, for it did make me a figure of authority at the dōjō. Perhaps the guys didn’t even want to fuck around while I was there, watching.
I’M A DRAGON
I’m a griffin! I can certainly live with that.
