    @oluseyi: Financial upheaval torpedoed some of my more radical wardrobe ambitions this year. *shrug* That's why there's next year :-) All-Dapper 2014, here we come!” Amen.

      @spacekatgal I haven’t missed ADN that much lately, but I missed your posts. :)

        @spacekatgal …goddammit. Stop shaming me into health!!

          Underneath both the shock that there’s still plenty of misogyny and the doing of it is a failure to know that others have a completely different experience than you @annatarkov @erinb @spacekatgal @berklee @dru_satori @jbouie

            "Twitter used to be fun, but it's not fun anymore and it's never going to be fun again."—Brent Simmons [inessential.com] Eventually, his argument applies to Alpha, too. Food for thought.

              Data loss and noble truths. [sethclifford.me] I don't remember the first time I lost data. I don't even remember what it was. I do remember the feeling of utter despair though, and the declaration that I wouldn't let it happen again.

                @matthewbogart Man, try to keep it a bit more Loki.

                  @oluseyi @clarkgoble @berklee @annatarkov @redqueencoder UK shows seem to benefit from knowing they have a short lifespan. Notable exception: MI-5. 10 seasons, but it did a good job of switching main characters and giving each a solid arc.

                    @saket You're wrong. They eventually end up attributed to Oscar Wilde.

                      @annatarkov Hm! Never heard of it - I'll have to keep an eye out. :)

                        @oluseyi @redqueencoder It is a common problem, when trying to write a "strong female character", to not just write a "strong male character", then make them a woman.

                          @oluseyi @redqueencoder Agreed about Haywire and Salt. They didn't lack much, in my opinion, though I think Salt would've been even better if she had been just a very well-trained operative, rather than basically superhuman.

                            I know this feeling well. >> @radioactive: Tempted to just have ice cream for dinner because I have to go to bed soon and I'm too lazy to make anything decent right now.

                                @va I was just thinking the same thing. Tough to spread the attention among networks and still get anything done. :S

                                  @spacekatgal "meet the new boss, same as the old" is a fine plot construct, just didn't like the way she played it.
                                  danj
                                    @spacekatgal Heh, it wasn't even the drama with boys I was referring to, actually - the way they kill her sister to force her character to a place where she'll kill the new president felt really heavy-handed.

                                      @spacekatgal interesting - I only read it once, and was pretty disappointed. Felt like a lot of stuff came out of nowhere to force the drama.
