There are nine realms. Future king of Asgard must focus on more than one.

“The Nazgûl were they, the Ringwraiths, the Úlairi, the Enemy’s most terrible servants; darkness went with them, and they cried with the voices of death.

by sam wilson (and sometimes natasha)

The Place to Chill 


The Place to Chill 


Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly,how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format. 




The Expeditions Trilogy

Don’t lie, these were three of your favorite movies in childhood. Unfortunately none of them had great financial success at the box office, which left them as stand alone films. Apparently had El Dorado done well there were going to be more Miguel and Tulio films featuring them visiting other marvels of civilization conducting various con jobs. Atlantis was going to have an animated TV series and Disney World attractions that got scuttled after the movie performed poorly. Treasure Planet apparently almost got a sequel too but that’s all we know about that. Thematically, all they have in common are expeditions to hidden places for legendary secrets, but dammit if they don’t fit together perfectly. One thing is for certain though, no one should have to watch Atlantis: Milo’s Return.
