Mostly caryl and the walking dead stuff on this blog. Although I do have a penchant for many things from the Supernatural Fandom, Lord of the Rings, and various other movies/tv shows.
Also post a lot of liberal-leaning (particularly on social issues) stories, feminism posts, etc.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

Maybe this is a weird thing to hope for in Season 5…but I really want to see some Glenn and Carol friendship. I think I’ve been reading too much fanfic but I love Glenn (and obviously Carol) and I think he’s a Caryl shipper too.

I’m looking forward to Season 5! I can’t wait to see…

That would be amazing! We don’t really see Michonne interact with women in the group much and she has so much in common with Carol. I’d love to see that!

Glenn/Carol bonding:  YES

Michonne/Carol bonding:  FUCK YES

She turns this hallway of doom into her own personal Studio 54, dropping moves that would make Deney Terrio proud. Never mind that McBride currently has on her person a knife, brass knuckles, and a massive rifle - the woman just wants to get down!

Filming is about to commence on a scene that will find crossbow-wielding warrior Daryl and wallflower-turned-flower-gazing advocate Carol investigating a particularly creepy hallway that stands between them and their secret destination.

The good news: Daryl and Carol are back together!…

If Carol had been one of the EW covers I'd like to think it would have been of her swinging her big Season 5 rifle around and pointing it at the viewer. That would have been a badass cover.

You know, Melissa McBride not getting nominated for an Emmy still irks me, but really, almost every single person involved in the production of The Walking Dead saying, “You’re pretty much the greatest thing that has ever happened, ever,” …well. As a fan that means more to me than Melissa having yet another dust collector.

Why do you keep putting the blame on Beth for burning down the shack? You keep calling HER the immature one when, in reality, BOTH of them burned it down. Sure, it was Beth's idea, but Daryl went along with it because he wanted to. So why do you only say that it was Beth who was at fault, when you should be saying that Daryl and Beth were both reckless?

Firstly, I don’t “blame” Beth for anything.  I understand why she acted the way that she did.  I get it.  I just don’t think that the way she acted was mature.  I mean, if you want to argue that risking your life for booze or burning down a perfectly good shelter is mature, knock yourself out.  But I think that’s a losing battle. 

It’s not meant as a slight against Beth that she is immature, it’s just the way it is.  She is 18 years old.  How many 18 year old people do you know that are very mature?  It’s more realistic for Beth’s character to behave in a somewhat immature way because she is 18 and she has been very much sheltered throughout her life.  This naiveness and innocence is actually a really beautiful thing about her character, in my opinion.

I have some additional thoughts about people who continue to argue that “Beth is not immature.  Her actions were about grieving.  It doesn’t make her immature.”  I might remind them that Beth was not the only person who lost people.  It’s not as though all people who are experiencing grief behave in an immature way.  Case in point: 

1)  Rick was right there, probably ten feet away, when the Governor cut off Hershel’s head.  He thinks that his infant daughter was devoured by walkers.  You didn’t see him saying to Carl, “Hey let’s go risk our lives searching for booze and then burn down a house that we could use as a shelter.”

2)  Michonne was right there next to Hershel when the Governor cut off his head.  When she got out of the prison alone, she probably thought everyone was dead too.  You didn’t see her thinking to herself, “I could really go for a drink right now.  Maybe I’ll set this car I’m using as a shelter on fire.”

3)  Tyreese found the charred body of his girlfriend, his sister became seriously ill and almost died, and then he lost his home at the prison and probably thought that his sister died at the prison.  You didn’t see him saying to Mika and Lizzie, “You hold Judith.  I’m going to get shit-faced.  Heyyyy, is that a house??  *drunken laughter*  Let’s burn it down!”

—-

You have a point that Daryl was complicit in the search for booze and burning down the shack.  That’s true.  It was entirely her idea, however.  My take on “Still” was that when the search for the booze first started, he was really annoyed with Beth and thought it was stupid and reckless (as EK herself said that part of the rationale behind getting the drink “was a teenage, rebellious, ‘live your life to the fullest’ kind of thing”).  I think he went along with it because she was the only other person left alive with him and he didn’t want to just let her go off on her own and possibly get killed. 

As to burning down the shack with Beth, I wish he had put his foot down and said, “No, we’re not doing that.  Let’s at least wait until tomorrow morning, if we’re going to burn it down.”  Unfortunately, Daryl does have this tendency to be a “follower,” which had a lot of potential for disaster in this case.  I wish he had acted more like a responsible adult. Maybe if he had been a little more careful (not just willy nilly opening a door assuming that it was a dog and not a herd of walkers), Beth and Daryl wouldn’t have gotten separated and she wouldn’t have been kidnapped.

Um if I just lost my “home” again and saw my father be murdered right in front of me I would need a damn drink too.

ok.  People respond to grief in different ways.  Like I said in my post, I get it.  It still doesn’t mean it’s a mature choice of action to risk your life for booze.
