It Used to be Fun ...

See creepy Uncle Tony in the back right? Dude with the combover?
That’s our freaking PRIME MINISTER.
I am feeling so much shame over that right now (and always), that the fact that we are still a constitutional monarchy, causing every single middle-aged Woman’s Day reader to go ape@#$% over this baby/future king barely scratches the surface.
No wonder support for becoming a republic is at an all-time low right now in Australia. Bigger things to worry about, sadly.

Yeah, the only thing I really liked about the show. This woman and this line.

Broad City all the way, yo.

I kind of loved how they made it that Gail, arguably one of the more upper middle class of the rookies, actually really knew what it mean to dress the part of ‘low rent’prostitute, compared to others, down to the grungy zip-up sweater and the panda eyeliner. Hilarious.

A Story of Now, a rookie blue fanfic | FanFiction

This … is an experiment.

Gail already knows she needs a life plan— as a matter of urgency. Now she’s also starting to think she might need some new friends.”

A Gail/Holly story. Written in response to a reader’s prompt: If Gail had got her wish from ‘It Has Been a … Day’ and met Holly when she was younger. In this Gail is nineteen, on the threshold, deciding, what she wants, what direction her life should take, and which people she wants to take on that journey.

Cloudburst, 2013

A film with Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker as hilarious, codgery, aging lovers going on the run to get married before one of them is put in a home? Why haven’t I seen this already?

What Women Watch on TV

Apparently men are too dumb to ‘get’ the TV women like, according to this very odd article that also calls Game of Thrones a Sci Fi show:

On the broadcast front, Scandal and ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy dominate the landscape alongside football and the music competition juggernauts NBC’s The Voice and Fox’s American Idol, as well as CBS’ ubiquitous The Big Bang Theory. Wintsch says she thinks the scripted series that hit with women manage to convey nuances men don’t necessarily get. “I feel like my husband watches [Pope] and his only comment every weekend is, ‘She’s such a slut,’” Wintsch says. “And I watch it and I think ‘She’s so broken, she’s so flawed, and that’s why she’s looking for love with these men.’”

Geek Speaks: Women who Work in Television

Geek Speaks: The Women who Make Television

Organised by Henry Jenkins media academic. Jenkin was one of the first academic to write about television audiences and fans as creative, imaginative and active audiences. 

Now the USC Professor is organing an ongoing panel series, Geek Speaks.

Why this one on women who work in television was important, according to Jenkins:

"We thought it was a key moment of transition, seeing shows like ‘Scandal’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’ and countless other shows which have sort of put female authorship on the horizon," said Jenkins. "On the one hand, there’s still an uphill battle to be fought. Still, the statistics are showing women face more challenges to break into the industry, that they’re not anywhere near 50 percent of the creative talent behind the camera. On the other hand, there’s a critical mass of women now in creative roles that weren’t there five years ago, ten years ago. And so it’s a moment to celebrate and a moment to define the battlefield for the next round of the struggle."

Love and Justice, Peter Stebbings, 2008 (short)

Some naughty uploaded this film onto You Tube recently. It’s Charlotte Sullivan and her husband Peter Stebbings in his short film Love and Justice.

I’ve seen a clip before, but I haven’t watched the whole thing yet. I thought the Rookie Blue fans might wanna if they haven’t already? It’s at just over 20mins long.

Rookie Blue Premiering Earlier:



"Since ‘AWC’ will not air in July, ABC is making changes to its summer lineup. Originally, ‘Rookie Blue’ was slated to premiere on July 17 at 10 p.m., but it will now air one month earlier on Thursday, June 19 in the 9 p.m. slot. Even though the cop drama’s fifth season is getting an early start, ABC is not planning on expanding the season."

So now it’s going to be on earlier, but a short season again, now? And will it be it’s last season?
