Thrilled by my local library in #DirectedbyWomen month

When I learned about the #DirectedbyWomen Worldwide Film Viewing Party throughout September 2018, I went to my local library branch and talked to them. They have a lot of DVDs to borrow. They didn’t have them in the database with a category for the gender of the director. But they were interested in celebrating women directors.

I Love You, Sally Wainwright

Rebeccapurple + Spirit Day

I’ve always used purple on my blog in honor of Eric Meyers’ daughter Rebecca, who died at age 6. Nobody knew that but me, but I’m aware of it each time I open my blog.

But today, the color purple represents Spirit Day, a day GLAAD created to show support for LGBTQ youth. On this day, I want to share my love and respect for LGBTQ youth. Nobody deserves to be bullied.

New Research: Seniors on the Small Screen

A new report from the Media, Diversity, & Social Change Initiative underscores just how lacking U.S. television is in faces over the age of 60. Titled “Seniors on the Small Screen,” the study was “comprised of two samples of popular television series airing between June 1, 2016 and May 31, 2017. Popularity was determined based on Nielsen Average Audience Rating Percentage. The first sample includes the 50 most popular television series among viewers age 18-49. The second sample includes the 50 most popular television series among viewers age 65 and older.” Continue reading “New Research: Seniors on the Small Screen”

Just Thinkin’ Here

Three shows I love premier this weekend with new seasons. In the past, I’ve written recaps of Orphan Black. I’ve written several series level posts about each season of Orange is the New Black, but no recaps. In season 1 of Wynonna Earp I only commented (very wrongly) about what I thought was going on in the first episode.

I’m thinking I want to continue in the same way with Orphan Black and Orange is the New Black. I’m also thinking I want to write more about Wynonna Earp but I don’t want to do recaps.

What that means in terms of Wynonna Earp isn’t clear to me yet.

Do you as readers have any input on these plans for the next few weeks of my blogging efforts?
