What in the world are you doing here?

Welcome to one of my many blogs! (Don't ask.)
Warning: here there be dragons!
This is a place where you can find me, Lexi, venting and ranting and commenting and just basically babbling about... stuff. I dunno why you'd want to, this is basically a look into a madwoman's mind... Well, as long as you enjoy it and know what you're getting yourself into, knock yourself out. Not literally, though, okay?

In Which Lexi Talks About Iron Man 3

(Ahaha, and here I believed I'd be writing in this thing at least once a month. Whoops.)



So, like, spoilers and stuff. No, seriously, spoilers ahead. PROCEED WITH CAUTION, TRUE BELIEVERS.

In Which Lexi Talks About Personal Shit

When I think of my family, I'm eerily reminded of the three main gods of the Japanese Shinto faith. Amaterasu is the eldest, the only sister, and the sun goddess. Tsukuyomi is the middle son, and the moon god. Susano-o is the youngest, and the god of storms. And Susano-o is insanely jealous of his elder sister, to the point that he attacks a shrine dedicated to her and kills one of her favorite priestesses. She is terrified and flees into a cave, and it takes the efforts of the rest of the gods to draw her back out again.

I don't know if it's a good thing that my family life resembles Japanese myths.

In Which Lexi Talks About Breaking Dawn Part 2 (A.K.A. the Death of Literature and Death In Literature)

So I went to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 today yesterday with a friend, a fellow Anti-Twilighter. We were going as loltrolls and were prepared to be kicked out due to our inability to not comment on what we saw.

Guys. Holy shit. Guys. This movie. This... this movie...

I think my brain is broke.

Because I know someone might not want to be spoiled for the BIG FREAKING TWIST, here is a spoiler-cut.

In Which Lexi Talks About Why We Need Sailor Moon

So in case it isn't clear enough, I like superheroes.

No, really. Go ahead. Look surprised. I'll wait.

Superheroes are the epic heroes of our time. Where stories Gilgamesh and Herakles and Perseus were once told, we instead get stories of Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-man... I could go on. I don't need to.

But, to be honest, traditional mythology and epic heroic tales have been lacking in female heroes. And modern-day comics are really not so different. Oh, we've gotten better. The fact that Black Widow featured heavily in the recent Avengers film; the fact that so many devoted fans (male and female) of Wonder Woman flipped out over her mistreatment in recent storylines; the fact that Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) and Spider-woman are just as beloved as their male counterparts... yeah, girls have gotten better when it comes to heroism.

They also have gotten much worse.

Much, much worse.
To be honest, as a modern woman myself... this? Isn't enough. It's not enough that we have some girl superheroes that can play with the big boys. As cool as Natasha and Diana and Carol and Jessica are, they are also ultra... masculine-ified. Eeehhhnnnn, I'm not quite sure if I can put this the way I want to, so let me just try.

In Which Lexi Talks About Sherlock Holmes and Elementary

It's Sherlock Holmes! IN NEW YORK.
Oh crap. It is time to talk about this.

*deep breath*

I am Lexi, and I am a Holmesian. I adore Sherlock Holmes in his many, many forms. It is because of Sherlock Holmes that I became a mystery fanatic. I can positively say that Sailor Moon and Sherlock Holmes are the single two most important factors in shaping the person I am today. Without a doubt.

We good? We're good.
