Hello and welcome to Wednesday Links! This is where we share some pretty neat stuff we’ve seen recently on the internet. As always, we hope you’re having a great week and if not, that’s okay! We hope it gets better.
Every Wednesday, I ask Sarah if there’s something she wants me to include in the Links post. Most of the time, she doesn’t have anything. When I asked for this week, she cryptically replied, “Google Feud.” It’s like Family Feud, but using Google autocorrect answers. She also warns it’s very addicting and I can confirm that it is.
Missing Agent Carter and her lovely choice of lipsticks? Besame has taken their three Agent Carter lip colors and put them in some lovely packaging. Elyse loves this brand, but be warned none of these colors are “new.” They’re just repackaged together. However, the set looks like it’d make a great gift!
Exciting romantic comedy alert! The creator of Fresh Off the Boat is going to direct a rom com with Ali Wong and Randall Park:
As of now, the film is untitled but the script has been written by Michael Golamco. The story follows two childhood sweethearts who have a falling-out and lose touch for 15 years. Now as adults, they cross paths again. Sasha (Wong) has become a celebrity chef who is opening up a restaurant in San Francisco, while Marcus (Park) is a struggling but happy musician who lives at home with his dad. And when they reconnect, they find that some old sparks still linger.
I’m very excited for this as I’m a fan of both Park and Wong!
If you’re like me and have some major catnip for “unlikeable” heroine, you might enjoy this older Bitch Media essay:
I see this double standard pop up all the time in novels, too. We forgive our heroes even when they’re drunken, aimless brutes or flawed noir figures who smoke too much and can’t hold down a steady relationship. In truth, we both sympathize with and celebrate these heroes; Conan is loved for his raw emotions, his gut instincts, his tendency to solve problems through sheer force of will. But the traits we love in many male heroes—their complexity, their confidence, their occasional bouts of selfish whim—become, in female heroes, marks of the dreaded “unlikable character.”
What do you think?
And if you’ve been coveting Nakia’s scarf from Black Panther, Ruth E. Carter (the movie’s amazing costume designer) has released the pattern!
