I keep choosing kids names, as if it’s ever going to happen.

We don’t know if Elliot Rodger was mentally ill. We don’t know if he was a “madman.” We do know that he was desperately lonely and unhappy, and that the Men’s Rights Movement convinced him that his loneliness and unhappiness was intentionally caused by women.
Because this is what the Men’s Rights Movement does: it spreads misogyny, it spreads violence, and most of all it spreads a sense of entitlement towards women’s bodies.
Pretending that this is the a rare act perpetrated by a “crazy” person is disingenuous and also does nothing to address the threat of violence that women face every day. We can’t just write this one off – we need to talk about all of the fucked up parts of our culture, especially the movements that teach men that they have the right to dominate and intimidate and violate women, that lead to this, and we need to change things. Because if we don’t, I guarantee that this will happen again. And again. And again.

So sad. The whole situation and the fact that it happened in my town near my alma mater makes it that much worse.


The dynamics of Fisher, Ford, and Hamill’s off-screen relationship was an almost mirror image of Star Wars. Hamill later admitted he had a serious crush on his costar. Fisher had been awestruck by Ford’s tall good looks and laconic manner the moment she met him. "You look at Harrison and you listen, he looks like he’s carrying a gun even if he isn’t. He’s this incredibly attractive male animal, in every sense of the word. This carpenter stud," she said. "I’ve never had that same impression of anyone else in my life. I knew he was going to be a star - someone of the order of Tracy or Bogart." The trio became inseparable - Ford and Fisher particularly so. "Whenever anyone couldn’t find Harrison, you’d say, ‘Have you tried Carrie Fisher’s changing room?’" said Dave Prowse.


I love these people so much.

The view isn’t as good as last year but I’m still happy to be back in Durham! (at Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club)

I was expecting to hate the Mad Men premiere but I didn’t at all. Felt for Peggy so much. Only thing I missed was Betty.
