Singin’ in the Rain is one of my favorite movies, at least in part due to Lina Lamont, who is one of the greatest underrated comic characters I’ve seen on film. Every once in a while, you realize something awful about a book, movie, or song that you’ve loved since you were an uncritical child: this is actually kind of shitty to women. Upon reflection, the treatment of Lina Lamont, which is played for laughs, is pretty damn shitty. Will this stop me from ever watching Singin’ in the Rain again? No. Will this make me a little sad when I do watch it again? Probably.
If you’ve ever been by my Pinterest, you may have noticed that I enjoy Mid-Century Modern decorating. I want this kitchen so much, it almost makes me overlook that whole detail of not wanting to own a house.
If you got all the way through the GeekVice podcast that I was on, you may have heard me suggest reading Pretty Deadly. If you’ve already read Pretty Deadly, good for you! If you haven’t, go read it now! The artwork is gorgeous and the story is compelling. Why am I bringing this up? Pretty Deadly is coming back in September! You’ll want to be all the way caught up before it returns, won’t you?
