Reading this now.  My therapist recommended it & it is a very helpful, quick read.  It helps with those of us who have issues with parental guilt & manipulation.  It’s purpose is to help you regain your self worth & develop new ways to interact.

The Russian Ark: This movie was shot in a single take. The cinematographer Tillman Buttner, used a Steadicam and high-def digital technology; joined with some 2,000 actors in a tight-wire act in which every mark and cue had to be hit without fail to get the whole film in one shot. (x)

this is very important

The Losers is *so good.* Everyone here’s seen it, right? I’ll feel like I’ve failed you, if not.

Everyone should watch The Losers. And then write lots and lots and lots of fic.

If you’re not watching Sirens on Thursday nights at 10pm on USA, then you’re missing out. Not only is it one of the funniest shows out there right now — being that it’s co-created and executive produced by Denis Leary — but it’s also highly inclusive.

It centers on a team of Chicago EMTs, and focuses on the odd partnership of three men, Brian, who is the new guy, Johnny, a guy with a slow developing emotional range, and Hank, an African-American homosexual who defies all stereotypes the rest of popular media inflicts upon gay men. Their team is fleshed out in Cash, Voodoo, and Stats. And last night’s episode showed that Voodoo is asexual.

It took Brian from confusion and denail, to attempts to understand, and eventually wrapped it all around in a bow of acceptance. Brian went from the ideology that asexuals “just haven’t had proper sex,” to wanting to understand what asexual means — and failing — and finally all the way to realizing that sex isn’t what defines relationships, and that just being around Voodoo is enough for him.

Do yourselves a favor, and catch up on the episodes, and start tuning in Thursdays at 10.

falconwhitaker: Hi there :) Do you by any chance have a list of books about autistic characters by autistic authors?

diversityinya:

Hi! After doing some research, it’s pretty clear that there are very few young adult books that fit these parameters. Here are the few that we found:

Colin Fischer by Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz (Penguin) — Zack Stentz “describes himself as ‘on the Asperger’s spectrum’” (NPR). 

"The screenwriting team behind X-Men: First Class and Thor make their YA debut with the story of a teenager with Asperger’s syndrome solving a crime, a premise that can’t help evoking Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. … readers will be drawn into the mystery and intrigued by Colin’s vision of the world." — Publishers Weekly 

Rogue by Lyn Miller-Lachmann (Nancy Paulsen Books) — Lyn Miller-Lachmann writes about being “on the autism spectrum” here for DiYA.

"An eighth-grader’s Asperger’s syndrome complicates her navigation of an unpredictable—and often inexplicable—world. … An interesting and somewhat enlightening look at a girl struggling but sometimes making bumpy progress in dealing with Asperger’s." — Kirkus

Also, Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis (Amulet Books), which comes out on June 17, 2014, fits these parameters.

Thanks to Corinne Duyvis and Lyn Miller-Lachmann for their input.
