If it's crap ... We'll tell you
In honor of Meryl Streep winning the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in "The Iron Lady"...um, actually that was one of the few Oscar wins that I violently disagreed with this year...
I don't know how many of you have had a chance to see HAYWIRE or read 'Jennifer Blood' but the'yre at the top of my recommendations.
Also, hot off of their world tour and appearance on the Conan O'Brien Show, our friends from THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS will be stopping by.
Remember, if you're anywhere near the Austin area this weekend you should come to the Staple! Independent Media Expo where you can see The Intergalactic Nemesis and Master Pancake Theater perform, meet some of the best indie comics creators in the business and hangout with random LEOGers.
Okay, hit us with your questions.
That was an American Gangster reference, btw. Blue Magic = great heroine. ...Sorry.
LEOG, wearing it's ovaries on the OUTSIDE!
In the past, some of the (debatably) greatest action movie stars have been sports figures transitioning over. Arnold was a bodybuilder, Van Damme a martial artist, Roddy Piper was a girl scout (kidding). In light of MMA fighter Gina Carano shining in Haywire, could this same formula create a new string of female action stars?
Coming soon: Danica Patrick in "Bowlegged Justice!"
And if so - who would you like to see?
One of my favorite female protagonists is Claire Danes character on Homeland Carrie Mathison. Her identity is not based around being a woman as like most female fictional characters tend to be. She is a just a person with her own problems put in these extreme situations who happens to be a woman. What are some of your favorite female leads who are approached as people first rather than female first?
Peace and long live the league
This just seemed appropriate.
To ME, anyway...
Where do you think the fine line is when comparing badass women who are sexy and the girls from Sucker Punch?
Love you guys and love the show.
P.S. Many thanks to Cyrus for the America: The History of Us and Rocco's Modern Life box sets from the Remote Viewing podcast.
Directed towards the Ladies of LEOG,
We've come a long way since Demi Moore in "G.I.Jane," but from a female perspective do you generally feel it's necessary to adopt more "mannish" behaviors to be taken seriously as a badass?
Well, I've found in and outside of the military I had to do the "mannish" things to get the guys to pay attention to me. It's also a layer of protection to try to keep you from letting your true feelings get the better of you. This is from a formeer Army SGT who ended up with a nasty case of PTSD due to the treatment I received from the so called "men".
Me!!!! I'm tough!!! Plus it's almost time for another cookie shipment, isn't it?
Oh, I'm sorry I missed The Intergalactic Nemisis when it came to Concord NH...I was stoney broke!
You're darn right it's time for another cookie shipment!
Hello Members of the League,
This question is actually for Intergalactic Nemesis. I really want to see your show but have no idea when/if you will be coming to California. Do you have any dates and locations for a show here?
Thanks and as always, Long Live the League!!!
As the opposite of Iron Ladies, we have female characters that don't have backbone, play the stereotypical damsel in distress, can't fight, etc. There are some of them though that deep down I wish someone would give them a "plot makeover" and turn these characters into "Iron Ladies". Are there any characters the League wishes would turn from a damsel in distress to a ass-kicking, take no names heroine?
