I found the Currently post at Kate Hart's blog, who got the idea from Amy Lukavics, who found it here.

Disneyland with my besties!
This interview with Kaye (@gildedspine) as part of Kate Hart's Badass Ladies series.
Pitch Perfect 2 - enjoyed it, but I think the first was better. This one felt a little crowded, but I loved the music and the girl-focus.
TURN - this season is so good now that we're really into the spy and war stuff.
Orphan Black (finally) - still catching up on this, but have finally started watching this season. Tatiana Maslany continues to amaze with her acting ability.
Washington's Spies, though I'm taking a bit of a break at the moment to read Sarah Maas' adult fantasy A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES.
Thanks to Tracey and Lola for forwarding this ARC to me! I hope to get a finished copy soon. :)
My friend (and one of the kindest, most thoughtful women I know) Erica produced this great episode for the Public Radio and podcast series State of the Re:Union about the region where we both grew up. It's a wonderful mix of slice-of-life, travelogue, history, and intersectional identity.
The episode is called SAN GABRIEL VALLEY, CA: SMALL TOWN, GLOBAL CITY. Highly recommended. (Bonus: the hot pot eating pics were taken by my other friend Gennia.)
I'm excited to check out the other episodes of State of the Re:Union too - telling the story of America, one community at a time.
Lots to digest this week, especially given all the media I consume. In particular, check out these entries:
Chuck Wendig's blog post We Are Not Things: Mad Max Versus Game of Thrones. (WARNING: Spoilers for both GoT and Mad Max: Fury Road & discussion of violence against women and female agency.)
Justina Ireland's post about female agency: The Curious Case of Lady Characters with Agency.
Feminist Frequency's (@femfreq) brief but thought-provoking discussion of Mad Max, popular media, and its conception of feminism on her twitter timeline.
The summer writing intensive Ready. Set. Write! (Click for more info!)
I'm also looking forward to seeing Mad Max: Fury Road. I had only a small interest in seeing this movie, but after hearing all the great reviews, I'm really want to see it now. Hope to get to it this weekend!
Making me happy
Long weekend! Upcoming second Disneyland trip!
Also, from a little while ago, Mother's Day celebrations. We took our Mom out to breakfast brunch, and then we made Loki take pictures with us. I love his expressions!
