Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

September 5th-October 25th, 2014
Opening September 5th, 2014 6-9pm
White’s show is the fourth in the 12 x 14 series at WNYBAC, which features 5 artists over the course of twelve months; Maude will also host a free collaborative event that will give insight into her process on Saturday September 20th, 2014 from 12-5pm.
”When I cut paper, I feel as if I am peeling back the outer, superficial layer of our vision to reveal the secret space beneath. With paper cutting there are so many opportunities to create negative space that tells its own story. Letting the observer become present in the piece allows him or her to look through it. I like the idea of the stark contrast between the black and white paper, and the cut nature of the work makes my art more three-dimensional than paint on canvas. ”
Get your first look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” now in production in San Francisco and in theaters July 17, 2015!
I have never been this unexcited for set pics :-/
Without Janet, why the fuck even bother with this movie?
I… Cannot bring myself to care. At all.
I have seen every Marvel movie multiple times in theaters. Want to know how many times I saw Avengers. Marvel?
Thirteen times. My friends and I had a contest, it was a JOKE. ”How many times have you seen Avengers?” Not ‘if.’ ’How many times?’
We’re all female, Marvel. We’re girls. And we weren’t really psyched by the lack of female characters you gave us, but you know what? We were reassured by the ones you did. We dealt. We tolerated. We waited patiently.
And when you announced Ant-Man, I told myself, at least we’ll get Jan. Jan, who was one of the BEST parts of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Jan, the funny, sassy, fashion obsessed, girly-girl who wanted to be a hero, who didn’t need someone’s death to motivate her, who didn’t need someone to suffer for her to want to do what’s right.
Janet Van Dyne, who gave the Avengers their name. I told myself, it would be worth it. For Jan.
And then you pulled this.
I will not see Ant-Man. I will not blog about your dumb ‘white boy pain’ movie. You fridged one of the most iconic female super heroes in your canon, off-screen, to further manpain.
40+% of your audience for “Guardians of the Galaxy” was women. And girls. Little girls like my nieces, who deserve heroes of their own. How sad that you’re determined not to give them to us.
Boycott Ant-Man. That’s my tag. Boycott Ant-Man. Until we get Carol. And Jennifer. And Heather. And Misty. And Angela. Until we get Monica. And Patsy. And Greer. Until we get Sersi. And Jessica. And Kate. And America.
Until we get females in your movies that aren’t killed to further a man’s path to heroism, because why else would we want to do the right thing?
Until we get Jan.
the most important thing to me ever is bi kids knowing that it’s ok to be 10% attracted to women and 90% attracted to men or 10% attracted to men and 90% attracted to women and still feeling ok to identify as bi, and still feeling like their identity is valid, and still feeling like they can lead fulfilling lives with both (or other) genders. like that’s just so fricking important.
Now remember people, National Coming Out Day is on its way. If you “come out” on facebook as straight and/or cis, an ally, a brony, a fucking whovian, or anything other than a marginalized sexual orientation and/or gender identity, I will ram my boot so far up your ass you’ll be tasting Vans for weeks.
Hufflepuffs can put a positive spin on just about any situation. This makes them popular conversationalists for anyone feeling gloomy.
I was convinced this movie was gonna be about lesbians then it wasn’t and I was pissed.
Welcome to the club.
