Day Twenty-Two is the solar eclipse across the US day: "Draw a pony star gazing / Draw a pony being eclipsed". Day, night or overshadowed/outshone/surpassed/upstaged, pick your pony and fill out the submission form. The gallery of the day is over here. OMG, it's full of butts!

Mind that deadline. It's midnight Mountain Standard Time, which is 3 AM Eastern Daylight Savings Time and 8 AM UTC. There's usually an extension on top of that, somewhere around three hours.

In the 23rd century, humans have colonized the solar system.

The U.N. controls earth.

Mars is an independent military power.

The inner planets depend on the resources of the asteroid belt.

Belters live and work in space.

In the Belt, air and water are more precious than gold.

For decades, tensions have been rising - Earth, Mars and the Belt are now on the brink of war.

All it will take is a single spark …

I guess most of you have already seen the blog post about Joss Whedon made by his ex-wife Kai Cole... So yeah. I have to say that while I'm disappointed, I'm not really *that* surprised. Buffy is one of my all-time favourite characters and always will be, but there's a reason why I stopped reading Whedon's interviews and following his career years ago.

I am a bit confused by all the people saying how this will finally push Whedon down from his feminist pedestal. I thought the general consensus these days was that he was a problematic fave at best and the only people who still thought of him as the Greatest Feminist Ever were couple of people at Whedonesque?

(of course, my own disillusionment with Joss Whedon's brand of feminism is not exactly a recent thing, so I might be projecting)

In related news, Whedonesque is shutting down, and based on the charity mentioned in the announcement, it's pretty obvious why Simon and Caroline decided to do it. I'm not sure if I'm saddened by the news or just paralysed with not caring. On one hand, I stopped posting there years ago and rarely had a discussion there that didn't devolve into wank, but on the other hand me and my fellow LJ-based feminist trolls had some great times over there back in 2007-2009, wanking about race and feminism and getting banninated for having the wrong 'tone'.
