Weekend Links 01.31.2015


This week I kicked off my Youtube Channel! Be sure to watch and subscribe. I am having a lot of fun at school too! This weekend I'm filming a video for class, rewatching Juno, and hopefully doing laundry.

Today is the last day to sign up for the Odd Honey Swap! Read all about what it is and join in on the fun!

Probably the best, most thorough piece I've read on the issues of race and gender in Hollywood as highlighted by the 2015 Oscar noms.

We're getting a Latina Disney Princess! No movie (which I honestly think is a smart move given reactions to the highly underrated Tiana in Princess and the Frog), but she will get a full television series-- buy her merch and watch her show so that we can have more nice things!

Poem of the week: "Explaining My Depression To My Mother" by Sabrina Benaim

The Isidore Tarot Card Deck Second Edition is beautiful! Support the artists on indiegogo and buy your deck!

The AV Club throws some major shade at George Lucas, and I can honestly say I WISH I were this good at biting, hilarious criticism.

  1. Loved all of these!
    And Tiana is so under rated! To me: I think PatF was shot in the leg by the music choice, as the songs were the only "weak" partM
