Nakking on Evans' Door

~*~

The home of the tumbling Nakki. She likes spaceships, comics, and lots of .gifs!

IRL her bailiwick is satellite and spacecraft design. She tends to rant about space and her job and science in comics... because it makes her happy.

She also really likes to run.

…though being that my boss saw I was here at 8am, if I wanted I could probably ditch at about 10:30 and go to the nearby aquatic center and swim for 2 hours and be back in time for my 1pm flight test….. Yessssssssssss.

You’d think that B.J. Britt, the actor who portrays Agent Trip, would have been a shoe-in to join the regular cast of the show in season two. (During a Q&A hosted by Comic Book Resources before the season two premiere, in fact, more than one person asked about the possibility of Britt joining the show as a regular cast member) But it wasn’t him. Instead, the new member of the regular cast was an English actor named Nick Blood who had been brought in to portray Lance Hunter.
It’s not necessarily curious that the writers of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would bring in Hunter—he’s an established character in the 616 universe with ties to S.H.I.E.L.D.—but it is curious that they would bring him in as a regular, and obviously with every intention of sliding him into the hero role that was vacated by Ward, when they already have someone—an awesome someone, a someone who is adored by the fans—waiting to take that role.
Think about it.
Agent Trip is, as has been noted, loyal, dependable, and a badass. He’s witty, he’s warm, he’s an adorable tech geek, and he’s a freaking legacy. His grandfather was a Howling Commando, for Stan Lee’s sake. He should be the guy. But he’s not the guy. Lance Hunter is.
There’s an elephant in the room, people: Antoine Triplett is an African-American character.
Lance Hunter is a British mercenary with a heart of gold; he’s a man with a checkered past who just needs someone to believe in him. He’s a cis-white-dude, and he’s ready to be a hero. And, more importantly, the cis-white-dudes who traditionally run everything in the entertainment industry are ready for him to be the hero. They aren’t ready, in any way, shape, or form, for Antoine Triplett to be the hero.
There’s so much wrong with this that it’s hard to believe it gets worse.
But it does.

Ok, but in all fairness, BJ Britt is already on another TV show so he can’t really be a full cast member on AOS

I think the point is less about BJ and his availability, and more that once again, AoS is giving the hero narrative, and regular series spot, to yet another bland white dude, but with a British accent this time.

Trip is a great example of a heroic character who should have been made a regular (had BJ been available), but there are other characters who could’ve been made a series regular, and given the heroic role, like Akela Amador, or Mike Peterson, or Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders is available, as far as I know), but AoS deliberately chose another white guy and fridged a lesbian character for his manpain.

It’s a choice that shows where their priorities lie, and it’s worrying.

  #this    #i feel all of this!    #it is such bullshit that bj britt is not a regular and instead they got some new whitebread mcmayo to take the place of the old mayo mcwhitey    #hotties of shield  

Daaaammmiiiit, I got shifted to the afternoon flight test shift! I could have slept in 2 more hours with no one the wiser! *WEEPS*

The Amazing Connections Between the Inca and Egyptian Cultures 

"The ancient Egyptians (in Africa) and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas (in South America) evolved on opposite sides of the globe and were never in contact.

Yet, both cultures mysteriously possessed the same strikingly identical body of ancient art, architecture, symbolism, mythology and religion.

The Victorian era scholars, faced with this enigma, concluded that both cultures must have been children of the same Golden Age parent civilization, “Atlantis.”

Today, Egyptian/Inca parallels are not only being ignored by American and Western scholars, they’re being suppressed.

Many baffling and unsolved similarities link the ancient Egyptians and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas ― even though both cultures evolved on opposite sides of the planet, separated by oceans” Read More

The lengths to which westerners go to in order to homogenize and oversimplify ancient non western cultures really fucking baffles and disgusts me like oh my god NO OTHER RELIGIONS EVER MUMMIFIED THEIR DEAD OR BELIEVED IN LIFE AFTER DEATH, HEY DID YOU KNOW THE CHINESE MUMMIFIED THEIR DEAD AS WELL IN ELABORATE TOMBS WITH “PICTOGRAPH” WRITING???? Smdh

This pisses me of so fucking much. I happen to be a big fucking fan of Ancient Egypt and did my concentration at MIT on Incan building techniques. They are SO FUCKING DIFFERENT that you have to be an ignorant pissant to try to claim they’re the same fucking thing. Uggggghhhhhh I don’t have the time or inclination to fucking educate you (OP/original author), so maybe fucking do some research next time before spewing garbage online.

An Open Letter to the Executive Producers and Writers of Arrow:

“She was my sister. I couldn’t be angry because she was dead. I couldn’t grieve because I was so angry.” - Dinah Laurel Lance, 1x01

There is no better way to describe how countless viewers felt as they finished watching Arrow’s season three premiere, “The Calm.” That’s what happens when the writers of your favorite show quietly murder their canonically bisexual female hero.

We find it hard to believe that when you all sat down to decide the direction this season would go, that you imagined how the fans would take you murdering Sara Lance. If you had paused to consider it, we doubt we would be writing this letter.

Thank you to themuslimbarbie s4karuna absentlyabbie and freaoscanlin. You are all incredible and I am blessed to know you.

I’ve reached the point in my life where I’m looking up paper crafts for the kids to do in December and I’m looking at Pokemon cubeecrafts and going, “What the hell is a FLAFFY?”

I’m sorry I just have to jump in here because flaaffy is my favourite and Every Single Time I say her name I super extend the a sound of the aaaaaaa. And when I was a young thing I had an entire team of Ampharos(the final evo) named Flaaffy, Flaaaaffy , Flaaaaaaaffy, etc to whatever the character limit was on names and I’d always battle them shortest name to longest name.

Flaaffy was my jam, man. Ugggh now I want to play with my little sheeps so bad. Oh and my croagunks! Adorable punching toads :D *all the pokeman feels*

Hey, Nakki! Another awesome Disgusted!Winston post about MCU!

I just love Winston’s disgusted sheetcake throwing face SO MUCH. He and Coach are 90% of why I watch New Girl.

sometimes i remember that captain america is tehnakki's trash baby. so magical

not all of us have the capacity to have an actually-trash trash baby. some of us just have to take what’s good and make it trash.

I love that Winston has become one of the symbols of reasonable fan disgust. 

Call for Photos

kellysue:

Hey, I need a favor? 

The folks at Respect Films who are working on that SHE MAKES COMICS documentary wrote asking me for photos of me with fans/Carol Corps that they could use.  As it happens, I don’t have very many…?  Or, most of the ones I do have are not *my photos* so I wouldn’t be able to give them permission to use them.

So, with their okay, I’m turning this over to you —

If you have a photo of me and you (or a group of us) that you wouldn’t mind giving to the documentary, would you email it to them with a statement of your permission?  

You can have them send the photos directly to me at marisa@respectfilms.com to save your inbox.

(Send ‘em that duck face. You know you want to.)
