This is my drawing of Princess Leia as a geisha, done in pen and ink. I threw in a few subtle details (look for the death stars and the lightsaber!)
Thank you for looking at my work, and thanks as always for the inspiration.
This is beyond gorgeous.
I don’t understand how non-geeky people shop for presents. So many of my co-workers get their friends and family things like sweaters and dress shirts, and I’m just like… but they can buy those themselves? And how does any thought go into that?
But I suppose I’m a little extreme in my gift-giving and holiday planning. I put a lot of effort into finding something I know my parents will like, something they wouldn’t have found on their own or spent their own money on, and the same goes for friends and my boyfriend. For example: My boyfriend’s dad is extremely hard to shop for, but we discovered last Christmas that he loveslovesloves Plants vs Zombies. So for Christmas, we got him the Ugly Peashooter lawn ornament, because he also really enjoys puttering in his garden. Would he have ever bought it for himself? Never. Will he enjoy it? I sure hope so, we spent a lot of time trying to find the right gift for him!
In other news. This week I’m working up to 54 hours at both my jobs. I love the holidays, but I really hope this is my last one spent in retail. These hours are killing me.
And now I’m going to go home and wrap presents with the cat. Meaning he will try to unwrap them and leave teeth marks all over the corners. (At least my friends/family know all about said kitty and will be amused at the holes everywhere!)
Ok, friends, have a seat. I wanna school you on a thing.
Do you recognize this kickass lady, here? It’s ok if you don’t. That’s why we’re having this talk. This adorbs vision is none other than the freaking fabulous Maurissa Tancharoen, writer, producer, and fucking showrunner for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.
Y’all like Agents of SHIELD, right? Like all that snappy dialogue? Those great characters? Mo Tancharoen is who you should be thanking. Yeah, I know we’ve got the Whedon name slapped all over everything, and yeah that ups the numbers. But, y’all, Joss fucked off to go work on Avengers 2. This bonafide badass is who he left flying the quinjet.
Oh, did you see Doctor Horrible’s Sing-along Blog? Yeah, a lot of that was her, too. And Much Ado About Nothing? That eerie, gorgeous soundtrack? Also her. Were you one of those folks, like me, who thought Dollhouse was genius and really could have been something amazing? Guess who ran the show on that one.
Oh yeah, and she worked on the Avengers script, too. Also those Spartacus series on STARZ that apparently a lot of people liked.
Basically, Mo Tancharoen is a goddess of geek media, and, y’know, Asian-American with Thai roots. So she is an extra hardcore WoC getting shit done.
So when you talk about AoS - the good and the bad, the writing, the story arcs, and all the other shit we flail about - there is no fucking reason to bring Joss into it unless you’re talking about how this glorious queen’s contributions are erased and overshadowed by this white dude.
Maurissa Tancharoen, friends. Now you know.
The more I learn about Whedon the more I’m sure that everything of his that I’ve actually liked was really made by a woman and he took all the credit for it.
