Rambling Ahoy
Honestly, it’s quite astonishing how much misery this movie manages to pack into two hours of mostly action sequences and espionage subplots, particularly since Captain America is supposedly one of the “lighter” superheroes, compared to the unending grimdarkness of Batman. I guess this is the difference between “manpain” and “a man in legitimate emotional pain.”

The saga continues.

The moral of the story is, don’t be a fucking idiot.

Every time I see anyone on posts about there being a lesbian princess or just more lesbian representation changing it to something else like we don’t need it I just think about the Gay and Lesbian section of Kindle books.

Because clearly there is so much lesbian representation, right?

I completely agree, but I’d also like to say at least Lesbian gets an Amazon category.  *sigh*  We bisexuals will be over here.  Alone.  Amazon-less.

Housing shortage grips São Paulo as Brazil spends billions on World Cup

SÃO PAULO — Inside a makeshift tent of plastic sheets and timber, lying with the debris of unkempt bedding and a wooden chair, was a motorcycle helmet. It was the only sign of any kind of mobility for 21-year-old Fernando da Nunciação and his girlfriend, Juliana Perreira da Silva.

Like many young couples, they would like a place of their own, but instead they are living like refugees with 8,000 other families in a camp known as New Palestine in southwest São Paulo.

“There is no help — rent is just so expensive,” Juliana said. “We lived with our families and couldn’t afford our own place.”

People being jealous of each other’s accomplishments is a theme on Glee lately. The key is that it goes in both directions.

Santana shows up in New York and immediately books a national commercial. Rachel is seething with jealousy for her, though she tries to hide it and be a good friend.

But then, a quick turnaround — Rachel gets the lead in Funny Girl, and suddenly Santana is feeling like being known as “the girl with the raging yeast infection” is the worst thing that could have happened to her.

Turnaround again — Santana gets the understudy role for Funny Girl, and now Rachel is jealous and territorial, which stems partly from a fear that Santana is better than her and will take away her glory.

Kurt and Blaine have the same dynamic going on between them, though it’s in the context of a much stronger relationship. In the past, Kurt has been jealous of Blaine’s “alpha gay” status and ease at being cast in lead roles. But now, at NYADA, Kurt is the one getting success and attention, and Blaine feels like he can’t measure up.

Fast forward a couple of episodes, and we’re going to see that wealthy socialite favoring Blaine over Kurt, and a new round of jealousy stemming from that.

The solution to all of this, of course, is to not compare yourself against others. You need to stay strong in your own goals, and measure only against yourself and your own standards. Rachel and Santana have very different career goals, and Kurt and Blaine seem cut out for somewhat different paths as well. None of them are better than the others, they’re just different and they succeed at different types of things and at different times. They each need to find their own way and stop comparing. I think that’s the bigger story being told here.
