My First Post

While I know that this is not meant to be a space for comments on my personal life, I do want to write a little bit about my background, because I feel that my approach to literature and art is always influenced by my work and my personal history.
I am currently a junior, and I am a drama major. I specialize in costume design and construction, and am hoping to have a career in this field. I have worked for Shakespeare and Company in Massachusetts and Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia constructing costumes, and this summer I am looking forward to working with The Williamstown Theatre Festival, which is also in Massachusetts. When I graduate, I am planning on moving to New York, and hopefully I will find work in the theatre. I wanted to put this info in my post because I find that the more I learn about the theatre, and costumes in particular, the more I relate the rest of my life back to my work. When I see a movie one of the first things I notice is the costume design, and so it is likely that if I decide to write about a SF movie I may make comments related to my work and how it links to our class topic of Afrofuturisms. Science Fiction costumes are a lot of fun because they can be imaginative and outrageous, but they also often reference historical periods or modern day culture, and I don't think I will be able to resist talking about them when I analyse a movie. I also think that I learned most of my text analysis in drama classes, so it may be that I analyse literature a little bit differently than students who have spent more time taking English classes.

Science Fiction and Fantasy have been my favorite fiction genres since I learned to read, or even before that, as my parents read the "Oz" books to me when I was still in preschool. In grade school, I became an avid reader when I discovered adult fantasy books. Later I became tired of dragons and wizards and so forth, and I started to read more science fiction. Since I got to college I have been so busy working and reading plays for school that I haven't had a lot of time to read for fun, and I miss reading SF! I decided to take this class because Octavia Butler is one of my favorite authors, I have read all of her books, and I figured any class that had her work as required reading was the class for me.

“Really my only job is to look attractive. I was so angry about that, that I went in the opposite direction. I turned into a really butch bull dyke for, like, six months… Then I went in the other direction. From being a giant motorcycle-riding lesbian, I turned into a zombie. I lost, like, 30 pounds.” megan fox naked pics

The awards show was taped yesterday in L.A. which means there was a lot of iconic media geekiness walking the red carpet. There was also a lot of terrible fashion. In particular, I’m personally disappointed in my girls Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and Kaley Cuoco (Big Bang Theory) for showing up looking like they should be working the register at The Limited… in 1992 megan fox fully naked

She couldn’t have picked a better movie to make her sexiness felt not just in Hollywood but in the whole world as well. And she does not disappoint in making it known just how sexy and naughty she can be. megan fox naked
