What Interested Me This Week

Lots of things!

A little girl dressed as all 11 Doctors. (not all at once)


Actors reprise their roles.

I have no idea what it was, but I kept coming back and looking at these pictures.

(I’ll be honest, this was my favorite picture–Simon Pegg is so damned adorable!)


As a huge fan of the Rose Bowl parade, I loved these flower sculptures.


This one I have complicated feelings about.

To Flatten A Heroine: Artist Puts Disney Princess Filter On 10 Real Life Female Role Models

Supreme Princess

First, you should read everything the artist has to say. Here’s an excerpt:

“My experience of female role models both in culture and in life has shown me that there is no mold for what makes someone a role model, and the whole point of Merida was that she was a step in the right direction, providing girls with an alternative kind of princess. Then they took two steps back, and painted her with the same glossy brush as the rest. So I decided to take 10 real-life female role models, from diverse experiences and backgrounds, and filter them through the Disney princess assembly line.

First and foremost, I appreciate that the artist has created some gorgeous pictures.

Second, he makes good points about forcing female models into a single mold. It shouldn’t happen, yet it does.

Third, I now want a Justice Ginsburg action figure. Preferably one with a broadsword, so she can cut through the BS.
