The films of Marilyn Monroe | 1953 - 1961.
I’ve got a soft spot for this lady, I really want to to see The Prince and the Showgirl but have yet to get around to it.
A Seattle Times review of a recent Madonna tour stop praises the artist for “rocking us as a feminist icon” and applauds the singer for her brazen sexuality: “stripping down to a bra, then pulling her pants down below a thong and baring her cheeks to the Key [Arena].” Even the Guardian’s Freeman, in an ode to Like a Prayer, the writer’s favorite album, speaks longingly about Madonna’s midriff-baring ’80s fashion and the video to the title track, which “featured a woman named Madonna apparently giving a blow job to a black Jesus.”
Through a career that has included crotch-grabbing, nudity, BDSM, Marilyn Monroe fetishizing, and a 1992 book devoted to sex, Madonna has been viewed as a feminist provocateur, pushing the boundaries of acceptable femininity. But Beyoncé’s use of her body is criticized as thoughtless and without value beyond male titillation, providing a modern example of the age-old racist juxtaposition of animalistic black sexuality vs. controlled, intentional, and civilized white sexuality.

just one more week!!! wooooot!
So I watched the new Star Trek movie last night and have some questions/concerns
So as not to spoil it I’ll be really vague…
The themes they touched on where pretty heavy but the way they handled it, I felt was vague (at best) and sloppily (at worst).
At times I felt that moments that were meant to be profound were rushed and there was one WTF moment I had over the conversation Kirk and Alice Eve’s character had, I was really confused as to the purpose of the conversation.
Over all, it was a good movie. I felt it could have had more depth but I’ll take what I can get.
P.S. Though I felt that some characters were shafted in the sequel I have no complaints about the badassery of Sulu and quipiness of Bones.
Sometimes people have a hard time understanding what a happy relationship between two people who obvs think the other is awesome looks like.
We think this is one great (and holy bananas, so freaking hilarious) example.
Bwahahahaha, when I grow up I want a marriage like this.
