I have feelings about "The Reichenbach Fall", people. Some positive, some negative, but they are FEELINGS.

1. Hanukkah and Christmas are almost upon us! Hanukkah is, as I've iterated before, my favouritest Jewish holiday of them alllllllll (and it always makes me sad when Jon Stewart tries to reconcile it with Pagan Jesustide Christmas), and so my Menorah is already out and waiting to be lit. :D As my Roomie is half-Christian, half-Muslim, I put out some Christmas decorations at her behest. Now my place looks like the clashing of the SPARKLES, or otherwise the kingdom of LED. WUT.





2. I saw Sherlock Holmes you guys, and there was a surprise!TDKR trailer before it (but I'm only spoiling Sherlock Holmes) )


3. Speaking of Batman, I miss "Community". :( I've been marathoning season 2 the last couple of days. So here's an ABSOLUTELY AWESOME fanart of the cast of "Community" as Batman villains:





4. And if we want to be COMPLETELY geeky, here's someone's suggestion for a new "League of Gentlemen":





I WOULD LIKE TO SUBSCRIBE TO THIS PERSON'S NEWSLETTER KTX.

I have seen this on tumblr and now I CAN'T UNSEE THE AWESOME:

"at one time, the HPDH2 script had Draco walking across the courtyard to his parents

until he saw that Harry was alive

at which point he shouted



and ran back

across the courtyard

away from his parents

to Harry"

AND THEN I SCREAMED.

AND THEN I SCREAMED SOME MORE.

Yeah, no.

I hope you burn, True Blood. I hope you burn ON A CEILING.

Hello everyone! Yes, I know I didn't review last episode. Truth be told, I'm pretty surprised I'm reviewing this episode, considering how much of a fucking shitfest this show has become. I was half-minded to write a letter to Alan Ball, detailing every single thing making this show SO VERY, VERY BAD right now, which he has to fucking fix, but I'm feeling too lazy to do so, so here's a regular review full of RAGE.





Let this angry fucking Frenchman lead you into my kingdom of spoilery rage sleep and disapproving gifs (some of which were provided by Regala Electra) )

Hey, remember when Godric was around? Those were some good times.

Did I mention that even though I find Tom Hardy ridiculously hot, he becomes like 238427499284023 times hotter to me when he actually starts talking? Intelligent actors, pass it on etc.

Try to get through this without crying your eyes out. I dare you.

(Mild spoilers for "The Hobbit", barely more than the press releases)

Yes, it's that spoiler, from that episode of that painful fucking Show: The amounts of 'no' and 'wtf' and 'how do you think this is even funny' and 'why don't you just punch all your fanbase in the face' I have for this are immeasurable.

Seriously, you guys. Maybe I'll just leave this piece of floating crap Supernatural has become for Noel Fielding and Russell Brand playing goth detectives.

First of all, happy 2011 everyone! We're into the second decade of the 21st century, and the world still hasn't ended. Can someone tell that to all the nutcases littering Port Authority?

Secondly, I've been wanting to write this entry for a while now. Well, I also wanted to write a sum of 2010 entry too, but then life happened and I didn't have time or energy. Bah, humbug.

Anyhow. So, as I'm sure most of my flist knows, In his last show in 2010, Jon Stewart dedicated the entire show to the Zadroga (or 9/11 responders) bill in a carefully orchestrated move. The direct result of this show (and the full month of continuous campaigning Stewart did beforehand) was the passage of the bill in both the House and the Senate in the remaning week of the session. Which, of course, got everyone talking again about Stewart and what The Daily Show actually does. Most notably, the New York Times wrote a full article about Stewart's influence, making him into a 21st century Edward R. Murrow, and NPR chiming in somewhat more sanely (but it was pre-passage, which is important to remember). Then, in a responding article, analyst Andrew Cohen made a very good point by saying 'he's no Murrow, he's Stewart, and that's plenty'.

My two cents (as a huge nerd of media and politics, and a Stewart fangirl to boot)? There is a difference between what Jon Stewart normally does on The Daily Show, and what he did on December 16th. 9/11 is an issue that has been extremely sensitive to Jon Stewart, and so his sense of obligation to defend the people who defended New York that day (and dealt with Ground Zero onward) hugely played into this whole deal. When Jon Stewart normally campaigns for things, he does it on his free time (like "The Evening of Too Many Stars" autism charity benefit, for instance). I feel like media analysts keep getting him wrong, by lumping in his political views, his criticism and what The Daily Show does.

Jon Stewart may be the most brilliant political analyst of our time. He really is very, very bright at what he does. But what he does is not journalism; he analyzes political waves and the media that covers them, and in rare occasions like December 16th, he lobbies. Neither of these things are investigative journalism. The Daily Show is not a show of breaking news, but a satiric commentary on the 24-hour news networks. It's, quite simply, infotainment. You don't watch The Daily Show to hear about their latest discovery; you watch it to get its perspective on the big stories of the day/week/month. I keep gaping at respectable news outlets getting this simple distinction wrong, whether knowingly or mistakenly.

It's hard for the media to give Jon Stewart the benefit of the doubt. He repeatedly insists that he hosts a fake news show in a channel championing ridiculous comedy, and he self-deprecatingly refuses to acknowledge that he is an extremely intelligent man who is well-spoken and wields great cultural and political power. But the thing is, Jon Stewart knows not to blow his horns. In a field full of people with huge egos and horrible cases of narcissism, he keeps a low profile and talks humbly of his own successes. I'm sure he celebrated when he heard of the passing of the 9/11 bill, but he's not about to brag about it to Brian Williams in Nightly News, for instance. Other journalists seem to take it as a sign of cowardliness, but it really is just a sign of levelheadedness. Jon Stewart is a reasonable man.

And by the way? I thought the 12/16 show was incredibly touching. My god. At least one of those men was dying, for crying out loud. How much more human than this can you get.

And that is because I actually wasn't aware that in order to get e memory card out of a camera, one just has to press it.
