I usually avoid political or social commentary like the plague, not because I feel it's unimportant, but because I tend to have a too-idealistic view of how the world should work and am not very good at the commentary aspect. Plus:

1.) I swing to the right of most people I know on LJ. (Which is still to the left of a lot of society, but hey.)

2.) A lot, if not all, of you are a hell of a lot better at this stuff than me. That's not false modesty, by the way. I do not have a political mind or the patience, and I very often don't have anything to contribute to these discussions that hasn't been said better by five someones on my f-list.

However, this time I had a box to stand on and a forum to do so, so I did. Why I Won't See the Last Airbender, over at MRFH. (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] rissabby for the beta on this one!) I left out a LOT of what I have issues with and focused very narrowly on the issue of three of the four leads being cast as white kids, and I'm pretty sure there will be people who felt I didn't word my feelings strongly enough, and others who think I'm making a big deal out of nothing. (The whole idea of the characters being replaced with jibberish- and yes, in this case "jibberish" is the right word as it isn't an actual language- really annoys the hell out of me as well. :P) But yeah.

Speaking of movies, I saw Toy Story 3 )

I've actually been making some progress on the Alphabet meme, and I got my [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon story back from one of my betas. She had some great suggestions, so I'm having fun (and I'm being serious there) implementing those. I'm hoping to get to Agency this afternoon as well- I finally figured out how to do the scene I'm working on, and the next one is a scene I've always wanted to read/write: Hoshi and Starbuck, post-mutiny. >:) Needless to say, it's not going to be hearts and flowers and glitter and puppies!

Hope everyone's having a good one!
