The Walking Dead

 Started watching this. Many years late, obvs, because I'm still utterly bloody minded and won't watch something everyone else is raving about. That, and I didn't care much for the comics.

Anyway. My Supernatural obsession is still alive and kicking, and I heard Jeffery Dean Morgan is in TWD so I looked it up.

JDM doesn't turn up till season 7.  However, Andrew Lincoln is the lead. Lincoln will always be Egg from This Life to me, so it's well eerie to watch him with an American accent. Much like discovering Lovejoy playing Odin.

Now on Se4 and they've got a plague. Did everything predict the fucking pandemic??!!

Matilda the musical

 Went to see Matilda the musical today. It was alright - suffered from a lack of audience atmosphere, not sure why, maybe the heat.

Miss Trunchbull was played by a man. I have a big problem with this. In the book she's a butch, lesbian PE teacher caricature and it's uncomfortable to read. In the musical film, Emma Thompson makes her a bit more well rounded, less caricature like.

I feel like having her played by a man feeds into the duke PE teacher caricature, and ideas of butch lesbians wanting to be men. It reduces the range of what a woman can be. It was very distasteful.

I think Matilda is autistic, or can be read as such.

 I feel the need to scream into the void and am wondering if I should use this again. Given that twatter has gone to shit, and I'm not sure I can be arsed to move to a similar platform.

I definitely need somewhere to spew anxiety and anger out.
