I finally read The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet after you botched the story in the show. I'll admit it was better than I expected, but for fucks' sake, STOP TRYING TO HUMANIZE ABUSERS. WE DON'T CARE. THEY'RE HORRIBLE PEOPLE AND SO ARE YOU.

They are horrible people! I completely agree. And it doesn’t matter what got them to that place. 

I assume you’re referring to the one chapter with Wickham? (It’s been awhile, so if there was more in the book than that chapter that would fit this, please feel free to let me know.) The reason he’s in any way “humanized,” whether it be in the book or in the series itself, isn’t because of some ploy to make people woobify him and idolize him as the villain with a tough past a golden heart. That’s not who he is and I’m really frustrated with stories/fandoms that do that to similar characters. 

But personally I find fiction that portrays terrible people fully as monsters somewhat dangerous. There are people in real life who are just blatantly bad through and through, I’m sure, and there are sociopaths with no rhyme or reason for hurting people, but far more often than not, it’s all a lot more insidious than that. The reason people like this are so dangerous and able to get so close and get people coming back to them over and over is because there are good things about them, because they use sob stories to manipulate, because there maybe was an AU where they could have not been shit. The monster hiding in the closet is rarely covered in scales, gnashing its teeth at you when you open the door. And if we portray them that way, it makes it harder to identify them when they stroll out of that closet with a winning smile and a shoulder to cry on, waiting to eat you alive one piece at a time before you’ve even noticed you’re bleeding.

Anyway, that was my intent, personally, when approaching anything with Wickham. I can’t speak for anyone else.

Did I do the parts under my control completely right? Obviously not. There are things I know I would do differently now, and there are things I would probably still do that people would be dissatisfied with.

Did I do it totally wrong? I’d argue probably not, since there are people who got that from what we presented.

Now, if you’re interpreting things from the screen/page based on your opinion of me, and the fact that I can be a horrible person and say dumb and shitty things, I’m sorry for that. That’s on me. You live, you learn, you shut up next time.

But I’m glad some things were better than you expected. That was most likely due to Kate.

After I graduated from film school and moved home to New York in the late 90s,  I spent several years working temp gigs, mostly on Wall Street. I don’t know if they still do this, but back then, every investment bank had a rotating crew of temps that staffed their document processing centers 24/7. I landed in the belly of the beast, and for almost two years I worked at Goldman Sachs. 

On every floor of the building, there was one room devoted to the temping crew. And while the rest of the floor was filled with industrious little wannabe bankers working 20 hour days and killing themselves to get ahead, this room was filled with artists, actors, dancers, writers, musician and other assorted misfits. It was like being a jolly pirate crew. 

I met so many talented, funny, friendly folks in my time at Goldman Sachs. I’m sorry to say I’ve lost touch with most of them, but every so often I see a member of the pirate crew somewhere. The unbelievably funny John T. Reynolds wrote for Craig Ferguson for years, and once I ran into him at CBS TV City. George Sheffey played a key part in the first play I ever wrote. Every so often I see him in something on TV and it makes me very happy. 

Another member of the crew was a young playwright writing angry, polemic monologue plays, often performing them himself.  These super-left-wing, anti-capitalistic stories being crafted in the heart of Wall Street.

And tonight, J.T. Rogers won the Tony for Best Play for Oslo.

Shiver me timbers and congrats, matey!

Lord Buckethead: Strong, not entirely stable, leadership

My name is Lord Buckethead. I am a space lord, and I am running to be the independent Member of Parliament for Maidenhead in the 2017 UK General Election. I enjoy planet-conquering, dominating inferior species, and Lovejoy.

I am the only candidate standing at this election who has personally stood against two Conservative Prime Ministers, Margaret Thatcher in Finchley (1987) and John Major in Huntingdon (1992). News has reached me that your country is crying out for effective opposition. And so, 25 years after my last visit I have returned to take on Theresa May in Maidenhead and thus complete a historic hat-trick. If Mrs May cannot even defend her own social care policies just days after they are launched, how can she possibly cope against a Space Lord?

My manifesto is an ambitious and progressive programme not only for the good Earthlings of a certain Berkshire conurbation but for the entirety of your nation. It is a suite of policies that have been fully costed and which marries fiscal responsibility with an interest in lasers.

I call upon my Maidenhead rival Theresa May, and that funny Islington chap with the beard, to debate me in public. Failure to do so will be treated as cowardice and a tacit endorsement of my superiority.

America needs its own Lord Buckethead




Fairy Tales, Old and New

 A few months back, PBS hired me and the No Mimes Media team to make three short, modern adaptations of fairy tales as a teaching tool for elementary school students.

PBS launched the videos this week on their Learning Media portal. I’m told they’ll be on their YouTube channel at some point.

"Are we monsters? I know it is a distinctly odd question to ask, the sort of question people ask in..."

Sun, 14 May 2017 11:30:40 -0700

Are we monsters? I know it is a distinctly odd question to ask, the sort of question people ask in self-reflection only after losing a war of aggression, as the Germans and Japanese did in the wake of World War II, or in the aftermath of some mass derangement, as Rwandans did after their intramural slaughter.

But perhaps it ought to be asked as well when a democratically elected legislature votes to throw tens of millions of poor people off the health care rolls for no ostensible reason other than to hand one party a victory for which it was desperate, and to hand the rich another windfall, as happened last Thursday when the House voted to disembowel Obamacare.

Sometimes, a nation has to look in the mirror. Sometimes it has to come to a reckoning.
