Inappropriate Arachnid Adjective

The Amazing Spider-man

Ugh.

Because there’s no way for me to do this that isn’t personal, I may as well go all out.

Spider-man means a lot to me. Like, a lot a lot. As a gangly, nerdy kid often on the wrong side of juvenile taunting, Peter Parker’s experience wasn’t a stand-in for my life; he was living it. I mean, other than the whole super powers and inexplicably hot girlfriends part.

Because of Spider-man, I...

All in the Family

Cutting Room for June 22

  • Of my cowboy father-in-law’s many colloquial expressions, one of my favorites comes out whenever I innocently brag about myself. He says, “It’s not the whistle that pulls the train.” I want to believe him, but he’s lied before, most notably during what I call “the electric fence deception.” So when Film Streams (filmstreams.org) partners with Union Pacific to celebrate the company’s 150th...

Whee! Lasses!

Brave

Ubiquitous, beloved and dangerous, animated fairy tales are more than just opportunities to sell toy tiaras to the tune of millions; they are typically the first encounters women have with the reinforcement of an oppressive patriarchal social structure, and their mothers are often the ones innocently opening the window to let in this boogeyman.
