LOK ships and endgames

As much of a Korrasami shipper as I am, it saddens me to say that Korra and Asami will not be endgame.

First off, LOK is being advertised as a children’s cartoon show (which obvs has evolved into so much more), and as such, has to be within certain boundaries, including not having same-sex couples (never mind the killing and violence, god forbid a guy gets with a guy or a girl gets with a girl).

Secondly, the main people in charge are straight men, and they probably have their own preferences and fantasies about who should get with who, and given the choice, they will place the guys with the girls (cuz they probably fantasize that they are the leading guys who get the leading girls). 

All this Korrasami stuff we are seeing (most recent example being Asami: “I can’t wait to see her”…. oh the feels!) is most likely a conciliatory gesture from Mike & Bryan, giving us shippers something, anything, if not a canon pairing. They want to let us down gently, given that they are setting up a Makorra endgame.

Let’s face it, people. Korra is gonna end up with Mako. Heck, there were even hints of Mako & Asami flirting again (back in Book 3). So as much as it pains me to say it (because she’s not gonna be with Asami), let’s just be happy for Korra with whoever she ends up with. It’s kind of obvious & disappointing at the same time who it’s gonna be, but Mike & Bryan are just taking us along for the ride.

You are so lovely <3



Happy Earth Day! The stunning photos above show the Sacred Headwaters, a pristine area of protected land in a remote corner of northern British Columbia. The area is about the size of the entire state of Oregon, and only one tiny road winds through it. (For context, on the US mainland, the farthest you can get from a maintained road is about 20 miles. Oregon is 98,466 square miles.)

On the subject of food waste, there’s this to chew on:

A new film, Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story, may be worth adding to your to-watch list. (See recently released trailer above.)

The film’s Web site says:

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences.

Featuring interviews with TED lecturer Tristram Stewart and acclaimed author Jonathan Bloom, Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.

Just Eat It will premiere in Toronto in April 2014.
