Finn Balor R-Evolution Entrance by irockman_8921

NXT's Finn Balor's (aka indie great Prince Devitt) entrance from R-Evolution. He's not painted up to look like Spawn or Carnage or any other comic book character -- he's painted to look like Balor, the one-eyed demon god of destruction and blight from Irish mythology. FYI.

Let me say for the record that I am not a Benedict Cumberbatch stan. I am not thrilled that he's going to be Dr. Strange, and that he was NOT my first choice for the role, or even my first white guy choice for the role. I am also not looking forward to his stans (the Cumberbitches) invading MCU fandom and the inevitable generic Dr. Strange/any-Martin Freeman-character slash fic that they will produce.

That being said, I am also not looking forward to any rehashing of the "Benedict Cumbebatch's family owned slaves!!!" SJW wank that pops up on Tumblr like a herpes infection. Especially when there's so many LEGITIMATE reasons to dislike Cumberbatch, latching onto his family's history (which he personally had nothing to do with and cannot control) reeks of commandeering a historical atrocity to justify your hateboner for an actor. I have a very big problem with any notion of 'blood guilt' and this reductive way of talking about history and the evils of slavery.

It's official. These guys are just googling their names with "fanfiction" after it and seeing what comes up.

Over on Reddit, Adam Cole (pro wrestler) did an AMA and I asked him a burning question...

-- I was screaming at my screen, "CENA YOU BASTARD GO BACK FOR ZIGGLER!"

-- Stephanie screaming like her Horcrux was being destroyed.

-- Prediction: Seth Rollins decides to pretend that the last few months didn't happen and shows back up acting like everyone's friend.

-- LOL at Seth's vocal appreciation of the way Luke Harper manhandles Ziggler.

-- Bray Wyatt demanding that Dean "punish" him with the chair... oh LAWD

-- Sting shows up to the Invasion 13 years late.

My BF loves him some Rihanna. Loves loves loves her. So yesterday we were talking about the whole situation with Chris Brown and how he kept winning awards and shit.

BF: How did he get away with that? Big Lurch didn't get away with it. [Big Lurch is a rapper who killed and cannibalized a woman while high on PCP]

ME: Yeah, but they found that woman's flesh in Big Lurch's stomach.

BF: So everyone thinks it's okay so long as Chris Brown didn't kill and eat Rihanna?

Pretty much, baby. Pretty much.

It sounds like we will be getting three different black guys in the next Avengers movie. SPOILERSCollapse )

Also, everyone on Tumblr freaking out about Wanda and Pietro being 'neo nazis', CALM YO TITS. If you think Marvel is going to portray two of their superheroes as Neo Nazis, then you are an idiot. Yes, an actual idiot. I always doubt that we have anything to worry about as far as Wanda and Pietro getting screen time; "emotionally unstable, incredibly powerful girl in a co-dependent relationship with overprotective male" is exactly the dynamic that gets Joss Whedon's gears turning.

This whole "not like other girls" thing that pops up here and there is the speshulest snowflake thing to ever speshul snowflake. It's not like you aren't a carbon-based lifeform like other girls, you were just a tomboy or you like math. These things are well within the usual range of experiences for women the world over. Do you really think that you have some special character or a depth of feeling unknown to any other girl in existence?

"Not like other girls": assuming that everyone else fits 100% into the role society pushed on them and that you and you alone rebelled or felt unsuited for what the world expected of you. There's always a faint whiff of disdain towards traditionally feminine girls, as well. Let me tell you something -- my BFF is the most traditionally feminine girl I know. She bakes, she knits, she loves horses and romance novels. She's also a biologist with a second degree in math. Another friend of mine glories in all things feminine, and she's a military vet who slept with her M-4 on her bedpost. Don't go assuming that because you aren't privy to our secret selves and inner worlds, that we are without them.

I don't know that much about hockey RPF, but all I want to say is that if this fandom has not yet produced a Blades of Glory AU, then pack it up, it's over. The fandom is a failure.

This has been a public service announcement by moi.
