Open Thread: Melting Ice

Melting Ice

Looks like this was taken on February 17th.  Sorry for the open threads going on an unannounced six week hiatus.  That was very much not intentional.

Friday Sunday Recommendations!  What have you been reading/writing/listening to/playing/watching lately?  Shamelessly self-promote or boost the signal on something you think we should know about - the weekend’s ahead of us here, so basically over, but you can still give us something new to explore!

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!

Animation: Villain Eyeshadow

From Twitter: A follow-up to my "gender eyeshadow" post.

If you liked the "cartoon women are gendered via eyeshadow / fur-shadow / heavy shading of the eyelids" tweet thread, you may want to stick around for this one where I talk about queer-coded/feminine-coded villains and their eyeshadow. Let's go through some Disney movies by date.

Snow White, 1937. Snow White has subtle eyeshadow, while the Evil Queen has darker and clearer eyeshadow paired with significantly longer eyelashes.


May Newsletter (2021)

Hello everyone! I'm writing this after a very pleasant shower that I took all by myself (like a big kid, lol) after walking with Kissmate all the way to the end of the street block and back! YES, my core muscles are officially knitting themselves back together after being rudely cut in half by my gallbladder surgeon. :)

I want to thank you all again for being so patient with me through April. I spent most of the month resting and unable to sit up and type, or even really think clearly, so it was a huge relief to know that you would all still be here and were supporting me through the healing process. You are the best.

I'm very excited about the content going up this month. For Patreon patrons, I have two new fairy tale retellings going up and three art pieces from Alex that look amazing. I have a live-watch of a zombie Christmas musical (never thought I'd write those words in that order) and some threads about gender going up on my blog. There's also a new Narnia on the blog, for those who enjoy those posts. Also, Kissmate is doing live-watches of the old Chucky / Child's Play movies on Netflix.

Thank you so much again for being here with me. I love you all so much.
