So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

I realized something extremely important. All these female action heroines are always running around trying to kick people's asses and what happens? They get their hair in their faces. I have a solution for them! It's called a rubber band. GET a rubber band, for crying out loud.

It's high time I added some more pictures. Here are some of the interesting warning signs I saw during my time on the Pigment Brigade:





We thought this one was hilarious until it actually happened to T. It is only because of her incredible skill and good looks that she is still alive today.

Integrity and other outdated nonsense

So I watch Princess Diaries 2 the other day, )if you don't want me to ruin a mid-movie scene stop reading now)

So she is engaged to Andrew, Duke of Something, and even though she doesn't love him and it is a marriage of convenience, they are fond of each other and she loves "Genovia" so much, she is willing to do almost anything for it. HOWEVER... Prince Charming Nicholas of the Evil Throne-Stealing Uncle shows up at her window and asks if she would like to go for a bit of a walk. (This is after he kissed her earlier causing them both to fall into a fountain). So she GOES WITH HIM (mistake number 1) and then she dances with him (mistake number 2) and then she falls asleep in his arms AWWW SO ROMANTIC and wakes up to discover that the news people have her little rendezvous on tape and now everyone knows about it, including Andrew. (mistakes numbers 3 through infy) And SHE... SHE is mad at Nicholas because she thinks that he SET HER UP by romancing her so that Andrew would break off the wedding and he would get the throne. Of course, he didn't, but that isn't the point. The point IS, she was ENGAGED. And if you are engaged, I don't give a CRAP what your tender little heart is telling you on a moonlit evening, you do not go prancing and dancing with another man! If you don't want to marry the guy you are engaged to... break up with him. If you want to marry the guy you are engaged to... DON'T CHEAT ON HIM. IS THAT SO TERRIBLY HARD????
I couldn't believe this ridiculous "romantic scene". Yes it was romantic, objectively, but I couldn't enjoy a minute of it because it was dishonorable and wrong and CHEATING and CHEATING IS BAD! And to top it off, she's furious with Nicholas because the news gets a hold of the information... but let's think about this here for a minute... last I heard, Nicholas isn't the one who is engaged to someone... YOU ARE. And maybe if you didn't do things that were terrible and wrong, no one would have anything to feed the press about you, isn't that a novel idea?
Was I supposed to find that scene romantic? Because if I was, that's really very sad what that says about the state of American entertainment, where cheating on people is romanticized and seemingly encouraged if that is what your heart tells you to do. And her grandmother is sooo understanding. The grandmother gave up true love because of love of country- she didn't cheat on anyone, and even after her husband died she didn't dash off with her one true lover because she had morals and standards and she knew that somethings were more important than love. So what of Princess Mia? She spits on her engagement, embarrasses her groom on the wedding day, and then calls it all off, giving a heart rending speech about how much she loves her country and how she should therefore be able to rule without a husband at all. Wow, Mia, you sure proved to me that you loved your country when it wasn't even important enough to you that you would restrain yourself from jaunting off and disgracing it for one evening of lying around on the grass with a stuck-up jerk who will only last long enough to fill the time before Princess Diaries 3.

hiss!
