I saw Captain Marvel today. It was very good and they didn't do Carol dirty. I think it's my favorite marvel related movie outside of spiderverse which was visually spectacular (even if it gave me some sensory overload). It was somewhat disconcerting that it was a "period piece" set in the 90s since it didn't feel right to me after the blockbuster scene. There were some playful nods, but I guess there's a really distinctive difference between watching things made in the 90s and things set in the 90s. That's how I feel about stranger things. It manages to mimic the era well, but it still feels disconcerting to me. Also, the one fight scene would have been great with compactors. Compactors are rolling bookshelves and I fucking love them. I pranked my poor sister one time with the compactors by starting it to move. She was so mad at me about it. Also my sister had to hear me chant archival boxes ARCHIVAL BOXES REALL ARCHIVAL BOXES. the prop deparment got that right. I hate that Carol is going to be in the next Avengers movie because then I have to go and see it and I thought I escaped avengers. Unforunately being an xmen ho also means I am going to have to see dark pheonix even though its going to be bad, so very bad. I just like the xmen? The original movies' mystique was a gay thing for baby me.
I am reading raven tower by ann leckie super slowly. I.e. between 1am and 4am. I have a lot of reading and writing for my thesis and comps so it's taking a while. I really appreciate the fact that the narrator is a rock, we have a trans mc, and bug characters.
I also picked up a reveiwing gig, despite being behind on reviews for my book blog.
