Mikelo!
Being a fan of the Oz Books

hamishmash:

Ok, sometimes people get a bit confused when I say I LOVE the Wizard of Oz, but am dissatisfied by the Judy Garland film.

Ok… imagine you’re a Harry Potter fan, but instead of the books having been adapted more or less faithfully into popular films, the thing MOST people think when you say “Harry Potter” is a musical adaptation of HALF of Philospher’s Stone from the 30s, where Harry is cast about 8 years older than he should be, his scar is now in the shape of  a star, Voldemort is now bright green and Hogwarts is not a castle but a beach hut.

Now this adaptation is critically acclaimed and iconic and should NEVER be remade. 

But you still wish that some day they’d actually adapt ALL the books faithfully! But nope… instead you get stage plays about how this green Voldermort wasn’t actually so evil, movies about Dumbledore’s origin story (which don’t take any of the brilliant information already in the books) and cheap CGI tv movies where they just pick and choose whatever they like and mash it together into their own plot.

THAT’S what being an Oz fan is like.

Sure the “famous” adaptation is a great, enjoyable film… but I can’t help but feel disappointed that the books have yet to be adapted with the same love and care that, say, Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings have. Adaptations are never perfect or completely faithful, but the Judy Garland film is such a loose adaptation, it actually spoils some of the greatness of the original books. 

Amen to this!

when people use queer as an umbrella term and ignore the fact that many people are uncomfortable with being called that

Worst thing to say “us queers”. Eeeeuugh…

Underneath each is the caption: “We are a queer couple able to reproduce.”]

can we stop referring to all sex that could possibly result in pregnancy as “heterosexual reproduction” now

YESSSSSSSS

(Also, “pregnant person” does not necessarily mean “woman” for the seventy-millionth time)

An asexual and pansexual become room-mates and have wacky adventures

The show is called ‘All or Nothing’

Plot twist: the asexual is really super outgoing and is a huge flirt while the pansexual is extremely socially awkward and has trouble ordering coffee let alone getting a date.

NPR posted an article with a title asking why people don’t read anymore, but the content was just an April Fools joke. Then people started to embarrass themselves.

I love how Dorothy looks like Judy Garland but everyone else is book accurate.
