Black Canary could feel the hostile eyes on her out here in the hall outside the House chamber. Inside the chamber was packed with people, klieg lights shining for the cameras.

bradygirl_12: (new frontier (cover))
I've been perusing some comms while I set up my new journal and found (via a friend's journal), [livejournal.com profile] vintage_ads. Fun to comment on, and a great window into culture of the past. Ads in our industrialized societies tell a lot about those societies, and this looks like an interesting place to get some insights and have fun. :)

I've been perusing websites, too, of my favorite old '50s movies. I love Them!, a 1954 SF classic, and was surprised by the touch of feminism in a very Cold War film (the female scientist (Joan Weldon) is given much respect by her father, always called 'Doctor' in official meetings, and she's the one who goes with the two male leads (James Whitmore and James Arness) into a dangerous situation because of her knowledge). The film has such eerie music and a plot that's not that crazy considering it's one of the first 'giant (take-your-pick) from atomic radiation' movies. ;)

I've been reading up on Niagara, too, a 1953 film starring Marilyn Monroe that is a perfect time capsule as to social attitudes, clothing, cars, etc. The Korean War is mentioned several times, and the film noir mood is excellent. The area surrounding the Falls on both the American and Canadian sides have changed a lot since 1953, but it's amazing how much of it is still the same. I'll have to watch that again this weekend. ;)

You understand comics' Silver Age so much better when you study these films, noting the sexism and Cold War paranoia, just to name a few themes. This is the era of Lois trying to trap Superman into marrying her, and the Diana/Steve dynamic made far more conventional after a progressive Golden Age.

Though interestingly enough, the early '50s of McCarthyism, the Korean War, and the Russians successfully testing their first H-bomb is when Lois is still her tough '40s-style self and Wonder Woman hasn't been as sharply revamped. The transformations come later in the decade.

It also helps in understanding a lot of the 'feel' of The New Frontier.

Since my other fannish name ought to be Retro Girl, I don’t think it’ll come as a surprise to many that I loved Darwyn Cooke’s The New Frontier!  :)

So, some thoughts on it, with lots of spoilers: 
 

Ouch!

bradygirl_12: (world's finest group hug)
Before I turn in, it looks as if I'll be typing with a pencil in my teeth for the next few days! :) My hand 'seized up' tonight while working on the next chapter of Rainbow's Freedom. Crap! I knew I was pushing it and now I'll have to go slow when I do any typing at all for the next few days.

I want to write an essay on The New Frontier, and start writing some fic from that work of art. I will be forever obsessed with this book, I can tell. :)

I'm very pleased with the reaction to my Steve/Diana fic, Terms Of Endearment and the latest Clex, Emerald Dust. Both were incredibly fun to write! :)

The NFL officially opens the season this Thursday, and a full slate of games on Sunday, including my Pats. So autumn is here even if the official date isn't, because football means fall! ;)

The typing doesn't look too bad using the pencil method, eh? ;)

Clay Buchholtz of the Boston Red Sox, a rookie pitcher, pitched a no-hitter in his second game as a major leaguer tonight. History was made at Fenway Park once again! The old ballyard has seen it all in her 95 years. :)

(Fenway Frank)


Loving every minute of reading the Absolute Edition of Darwyn Cooke's 'The New Frontier'! :)

Letting the cauldron bubble over a fic for the 2007 Fic/Art Halloween Challenge.

I've been writing the Bruce/Dick essay in my head and having a great time with it! :)

Ticked off at Rodney Harrison letting the Patriots down because of his illegal HGH use. You're better than that, Rodney!

Busy writing a new Clex fic which is a sort-of fix-it. ;)

Wondering what the heck is going on at Michigan and Notre Dame. Both teams are in trouble and it's only the first week! Charlie, you need another Brady as your QB!

Boston College beat Wake Forest 38-28. Whoo hoo! :)
