Once upon a time I lost my hair to a power drill. I was building a set for a high school theater production I was in. I was drilling and intelligently had my long hair down and swingin’ in the breeze. The back of the drill was sort of exposed and spun very fast. In a moment of misplaced gusto I leaned in and the back of the drill ate my hair. I had about four inches in there, and I thought- I could cry for help and everyone will laugh, or I could be super smart and simply reverse the drill and then hair would unwind, setting me free.
Alas, I was wrong. The drill just wound itself the other 10 inches all way up to may scalp. I took a deep breath, sighed, and cried for help. I was laying the ground and must have looked like a failed suicide attempt. My poor friend Nick took apart his entire drill just to save my locks, but it was in a vain. I had a bald spot there for 3 months. I was the lead in the play and developed an impressive up-do to hide my shame from the audience, but alas the entire cast, crew, and probably most of my high school knew. - AMY
So I recently noticed a ton of TV Show and Movie posters around the city that were printed in error!
Some poor intern must have sent them to print before adding women to them. Poor kid.
But I feel BAD for the makers of the shows, because everyone will think they’re only about worlds where women don’t exist/matter and lady audiences will find that off-putting just like all those dudes who wouldn’t buy a ticket for Bridesmaids.
Anyway that’s just silly, as you and I both know women are probably just in the shows/films in less relevant roles and therefore not worth advertising. Common misunderstanding, happens all the time. Never Fear! I had some old screenshots lying around so I made some new mockups so the entire species will tune in. You’re welcome. -amy
