ugh I'm really not sure whether to be excited for the Avatar movie or kind of pissed off
. really idc that much about the chinese characters thing, but the casting does irritate me. I mean, I'm generally all for the idea of the most talented person getting the part, but it's not like there aren't any talented Asian actors out there (I honestly think Dante Basco could play Zuko if he were a bit scrawnier, that man DOES NOT AGE--seriously, playing a REALLY FIT
teenager when he was 31? yeah. ageless.), and given that all the cultures in the series were based off preexisting ones...idk, my opinion is that they should cast people for each nation from the culture they were based on. whitewashing (LOOKING AT YOU, 21
) irritates the hell out of me :/
in other news, got Michael Turner's Soulfire: Chaos Reign
(because omg hot people in skimpy clothing) and some Dark Horse/MySpace collaboration anthology that has a pretty awesome Joss Whedon miniseries in it. makes me happy.
finally, I have started noticing that on all
the spaghetti-strap tank tops I have, the straps are too long :| obv it's fine if they're adjustable, but most of them aren't, so my bra is constantly sticking out, urgh. you'd think my boobs would more than compensate for my short shoulders/sternum/whatever, but APPARENTLY NOT. boo my life.
off to Karsh Kale & MIDIval PunditZ (and possibly CSz? idk) in about an hour, ttfn.
