Movies

I believe it was kirinn who was asking me awhile ago about what i thought the (potentially) interesting movies for this year are. Since i've got plans to see H2G2 tomorrow thanks to jmpava organizing a group trip i figured i should do this now before it moves out of the (potentially) category, given some of the negative reviews i've been hearing. (Said negative reviews which i have been seeking out in the attempt to lower my expectations before the event =)

Serenity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Sept 30!!!!!!!!! (Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Of course since in most cases i'm judging by title alone it's quite possible i missed some good ones, especially near the end of the year where (in some cases) the details are currently pretty sparse.

"girls"

A few weeks ago my sister was harassing me for refering to female humans of about my own age as "girls." She wasn't much help in coming up with a reasonable alternative, but she objected to "girl."

So i would like to point out this page from one of my favorite webcomics by a "female human" who considers herself at least a part-time feminist. The general idea is telling guys how _not_ to refer to "female humans." Note however what term she _does_ use.

And on an only barely related tangent, "Short Skirt, Long Jacket" is a very addictive song, despite the fact it describes a "female human" who is almost the exact antithesis of what i normally look for.
