You may love Harry Potter, but you’ll never love Harry Potter as much as ABC Family loves Harry Potter.

Project of the Day — Wheely, an accessibility app that’s designed to be a guide for wheelchair users to best navigate New York City. 

Boosting this!
I use a couple of apps which have accessibility info for getting around London and they’re invaluable. This sounds like a really good app for similar in NYC.

Justin Simien, director of Dear White People, joins Fresh Air to discuss his new film and what motivated him to make a satire about race relations and racial identity.  
Simien on how “white movies” are just “movies”

"[Recently] Hollywood has gotten more myopic and has to make very specific choices based on how they think the audience will respond when putting a movie through the production pipeline. It’s gotten real crazily bad, I think.


I think TV has gotten it right. Shonda Rhimes has figured it out, getting multiracial casts on television and appealing to everybody. It’s interesting because I haven’t seen that with “white movies,” which most people just call “movies.” They don’t just appeal to white people, it’s taken as given that a white cast represents everyone: A white male in a movie is an everyman type character, whereas a black man in a movie is a black character and it’s a black movie and it’s only for black people.”

I still think “friendzone” should be a big calzone you share with your friends.

Then the friend zone would finally be a real thing.

how come when curly haired girls in movies get done up to look “”prettier”” they always gotta get their hair straightened

Cho on my mind

I actually had this exact thought: I want to platonically please have sex with John Cho.  I’m not entirely sure what I meant but it amused me enough to share

2. Lois Lane

Portrayed By: Erica Durance
First Appearance: “Crusade” (4×01)
Last Appearance: “Finale, Pt. 2” (10×22)

Why She Worked: Every reason. She worked for every reason. This is arguably the best representation of Lois Lane the Superman canon has ever seen. Lois was always a feminist, even before major feminist movements, and that’s not missing here. She’s crazy tough, knows that just because she’s a woman doesn’t mean she’s not worthy of success, and she exudes confidence. At the same time, Lois can be vulnerable, sensitive, and brash, but that’s what makes her Lois Lane. She’s both a disaster and full of grace. Lois Lane is, more often than not, the true hero of this story.

Why She Didn’t: Some people say Lois came into the story too late and people didn’t like her because she interrupted Lana and Chloe. Maybe that’s true. But Lois’ abundant flaws are part of what makes her character so attractive. There’s only one character on the show that might have been handled a bit better…
