Looking towards the future

... begging for the past.
Well, we know we had the good things
but those never seemed to last...
Oh please just last....


Me upon watching my one and only martini glass shatter…

'The Americans' renewed for 3rd season:
FX has ordered a third season of its acclaimed drama series The Americans. The Cold War-era spy thriller starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys has been picked up for another 13 episodes.
Six episodes remain in the current second season, which has been pleasing critics (the debut season won the Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding New Program) yet performing somewhat modestly in the ratings. When including seven days of DVR playback, The Americans has averaged 3.1 million viewers this year. The second season finale is scheduled for Wednesday, May 21. “Fans will be blown away by the rest of this season,” promised FX original programming president Eric Schrier. [x]

Woot!

I absolutely loath this whole discussion about Alicia being “selfish”. What has she done that is so selfish? She stood by and supported her partner in his election campaign. She made decisions based on building her future and advancing her career as part of a new team. She has worked hard to provide for those who depend on her personally and professionally. She put her family and her career ahead of her personal desires. What has she done that is so selfish?
Oh, right. She’s a WOMAN doing these things. Silly me. She’s not constantly giving in to what the menfolk in her life want, sublimating her goals and ideas in order to fulfill their vision of how things should work. So she’s selfish because she’s not doing what Peter wants her to do? Because she didn’t do what Will wanted her to do? Because she did it her way and on her terms? Yeah, what a selfish bitch. How dare she want to exercise control over her own life?!
"Selfish" is another one of those shaming words that is used against women when they aren’t falling in line with traditional gender roles or submitting to social expectations. No one would have called Will or Peter selfish for starting a new firm. No one would have called Peter or Will selfish for choosing to end a relationship/affair, or prioritizing their family and career over the desires of another person.

1. I ran out of beer, so I switched to Scotch.

Book IV. Proverbs

So Sayeth the Empress

"I ran out of beer so I switched to Scotch."

"So we’re NOT three wise men. We’re one wise man, an idiot, and a cheat."

New tattoo finalized! It will be the Modest Mouse balloon, which it always was going to be anyway, with a flock of birds flying by in the background. Thinking right shoulder blade.

It will be tattoo #6; the 4th of which will be Modest Mouse themed. It’s a sick, sad obsession that I just can’t shake.

"There’s a pact that’s made early on in drama school at the Royal Academy. That’s what you have to swear to do: Go to America and take roles from hard-working American actors." - Matthew Rhys was on ABC’s Popcorn to talk about stealing American roles, honey trapping.. and did I mention that he sings? Watch it here.
