  1. Dammit, I missed the “want” in the headline and thought the Die Hard remake was real. Such a happy few minutes…

    • scene opens: gentle snow falls. music (carolers) in the distance. footfalls in the snow are heard. the camera pans to follow footprints in the snow. it catches up to feet, in slippers, walking to a green recycle bin. a voice, slightly distant, is heard,


      the feet speed up. the voice is louder,


      the camera pans up (Aisha) is pouring (elegant) food scraps in the green waste bin as other footsteps are heard. the off-camera voice gets closer,

      “why do you insist on coming out here without your boots? if you get frostbite, and i am without your lovely toes to kiss…”

      (Charlize, in proper snow footwear) – with a kiss – picks (Aisha) up, cradling her in her arms, and carries (Aisha) back to the house.

      (Aisha): (giggle) i love you, too, worry wart.

      ominous music replaces the carolers. the view changes to be through a lens as a pictures of the couple are taken.

      end scene.

  2. That last link was my favourite, because wtf is going on in that movie? I think I’m going to hatewatch it soon because that article was a wild ride.

  3. Everytime I see Charlize Theron’s name or face, I hope it is going to be about her coming out.

    One can dream.

    In the meantime, I will settle for her playing all the queer badass roles.
