neveth: Disney is releasing The Sword In The Stone, Robin Hood, and Oliver and Company on blu-ray August 6th! ROBIN HOOD. FINALLY. I LOVE THAT MOVIE. As a medievalist, it is my solemn duty - nay, my OBLIGATION - to get both The Sword in the Stone and Robin Hood on Blu-ray ASAP.

Reblog if you are in a secondhand fandom.
norulesnobras: Secondhand Fandom: When you do not actually watch/read/are really interested in said fandom or object of the fandom, but you know enough about it that you can hold an intelligent and involved conversation with someone in the fandom. It’s like dying from lung cancer because you live with a chain smoker, but you yourself have never touched a cigarette in your life.
So let me explain to Kotaku WHY the Sorceress has such large breasts: First,...– Reading Kotaku comments is pretty freaking entertaining, but sometimes indistinguishable from satire (Also, always good to know that women should feel empowered by more naked ladies everywhere, of course)
UGH, WHY WILL THE ASSHOLES NOT GTFO OUT OF MY...
http://kotaku.com/the-sorceress-is-designed-to-emphasize-sex-organs-so-t-478224719 So, the article itself I didn’t love and didn’t hate - it was just kind of there for me - but the comments are SO much worse than the article itself. They left me ENRAGED. And I know, NEVER READ THE COMMENTS, because Internet comments are always a hive of scum and villainy and more so comment sites full...

Yoshitsune's Backloggery →
So I’ve had one of these for ages, which I keep fairly faithfully updated (though I’ve recently been buying a few GOG.com games that I have yet to add, oops…just what I needed, MOAR UNFINISHED GAMES). Currently working my way through a bunch of Bioware games, specifically the Mass Effect series. (Getting ready to finish up 2 at the moment, and then I can import my Sheploo into...
The Vegan Quinoa "Superfood" Demand is Destroying... →
roboluvsunicorn: ladymalchav: otaachimow: girljanitor: I actually kind of felt like this deserved a post on its own because I think not many people realize that the demand for quinoa, which provides a ridiculously expensive source of all the essential amino acids and central to the “new” vegan diet, is causing near anarchy in Bolivia as the prices get driven up and up. According to...
The "It girl"
Just watched It (the 1920s silent film, not the Stephen King killer-clown film). It’s kind of funny, I’d always read about Clara Bow as the “It girl” and as a result of the way she’s discussed in that role, imagined her as a sort of vampy, Mae West/Marlene Dietrich type. But watching the actual film, she’s not like that at all. She plays an impish, charming,...
Historically authentic sexism in fantasy? Let's... →
This is an interesting and thought-provoking article about the role of women in fantasy and about the idea that misogynist fantasy worlds are somehow “historically accurate” and therefore should be taken for granted. Mostly I find it hilarious how people are all for “historical accuracy” when deciding to make their fantasy society horrifically misogynist, but somehow they...
