If you are somewhat active and productive in fandom, this meta is a very good read into recognizing what is problematic in media today and why fandom is the perfect place to do something about it (if you so inclined).

The “Spotlight Effect” in Media and Fandom

(2) What if I don’t like the female characters we’re given in popular media?

This is totally fair, on one level. But again: fandom transforms texts - we can expand the fanonical narrative for a female character as easily as we can for a male character, but rarely do with as much regularity.


(2) To be more thoughtful in our fanspaces about what we reflect from our favorite media. To realize that casual dismissal or ‘hate’ of those (often minority) characters not in the spotlight reinforces the hierarchy. To use our collective creativity to do more than reflect, but to create inclusivity where canon is exclusive.

So, complain less, envision more, is my new motto!
but you're still and asshole Kishimoto

Have you ever been curious about Japan’s underground love scene after watching a ton of manga/anime involving Host Clubs and the like? Are you just curious of how other cultures approach the matter of love for sale? Then please, give this documentary a go:

The Great Happiness Space. Tale of an Osaka Love Thief. (2006) IMDB
Welcome to the Great Happiness Space: Rakkyo Café. The club's owner, Issei (22), has a staff of twenty boys all under his training to become the top escorts of Osaka's underground love scene. During their training, they learn how to dress, how to talk, how to walk, and most importantly, how to fake relationships with the girls who become their source of income. Join us as Osaka's number one host boy takes us on a journey through the complex and heartrenching world of love for sale in the Japanese underground.

I’ve just watched it a couple of days ago and it blew me away. It’s all soooo twisted and disturbing and sad, especially for women and how the system takes full advantage from their low self-esteem and the pressure of fulfilling traditional gender roles, even if they do it in such a sick way… and don’t get me started on what I think of these “hosts” now…

Anyway, I don’t quite know what to do with myself now other than spread the word, recommend it to whoever passes by and make sure you all suffer with me.

Is that Ewan playing with a light saber? Why yes, and it's doing funny things to my insides as well... <3

En caso de que no sea obvio, estoy en una especie de limbo bizarro que me tiene incapacitada para hacer nada que no sea lurk & squeee at random. Cada semana un fandom distinto y no logro producir nada que sea de provecho en ninguno, ha!

So first, If you read Naruto, go on and rejoice with me for another attempt on making sense out of old Kishimoto here, at narutoforadults 

Second, if you happened to love the original and only Star Wars trilogy, and hoped that The Phantom Menace was only a figment of your imagination, you NEED to watch this review. By part five I was crying with laughter, literally. Mind you, this is a 70 minutes review, and has some inane jokes going, but is pure GENIUS!

And third, but no least, a meme (le gasp!). Because I never get around on doing them out of laziness, so it's time to change that:

1. Leave a blank comment and I will make a little ficcie/doodle out of the icon you've chosen.
2. If it’s a thing or a fandom/character I don’t know about, I reserve the right to pull something out of my own arse.

This should be fun!
