some grotsky little byotch
The talks about a Hunger Games theme park are seriously bumming me out. I don’t want it. At all. & you know me by now- I’m obviously a huge fan of the series. It sounds cheesy but it really changed my life for the better. Obviously this is meant to be a funny blog but I’ve got my own code of what is & isn’t okay & I take the books very seriously. I mean, I even have a Hunger Games tattoo for goodness sake. But a Hunger Games theme park?? Get outta here.
The joke for years has been like YES! Take me to Narnia! YES! Take me to Hogwarts! HOLY HELL NO I DONT WANT TO GO TO PANEM. It’s horrible! The Capitol is horrible! It’s ALL horrible! That’s the point! I can’t honestly fathom how they would make that enjoyable in any way. You just can’t & no one should even try.
Let’s hop on the Capitol train! Shiny! Fancy! to..oh.. the Capitol. Because you’re being forced to fight other children to the death for entertainment now. Smile!
A berry stand! Yum, berry smoothies! Oh, right, because how nightlock is literally a deadly poisonous berry that killed Foxface & nearly Katniss & Peeta… okay, yeah, that’s awful.
Mellark bakery! Hey, that’s nice. Oh remember how he’s treated? By his family then wow! That next level hell that the Capitol did to him??? Oh boy. Yikes. The cheese buns don’t look too good now.
Oh! Let’s go visit District 12! Oh. No. No, this place is horrible. It’s literally hell on earth with people starving to death, beaten/whipped/killed by Peacekeepers, & lots of coal mines. Remember when it got bombed & nearly everyone died & now it’s only ashes & bones? Are they selling coal & hard hats in the gift shop? Okay, moving on.
District 11? 10?? 7??? I know! District 1! With all the fancy luxury goods they make! …to supply the Capitol… Oh shit, they’re also raising children to train for & volunteer to be merciless killers for the “glory” of The Hunger Games, aren’t they? Nevermind. District ummm.. yeah, you know what? They’re literally all awful. Let’s not visit any.
Is this a replica of the arena?? Wow!! Look at that cornucopia!! Shiny! Remember when they release the Mutts genetically modified to resemble the dead tributes so then Katniss, Peeta, & Cato try to get away by climbing it & they nearly kill Peeta then slowly eat away at Cato to the point where Katniss finally killing him is a mercy?? Oh! & that’s where Thresh killed Clove! The bloodbath!! Wow, this is awful! Truly truly awful! Literally the worst!! Let’s never do this again!
Let’s check out the happy shiny bright beautiful Capitol city! Where they are lavished with more than they could ever want or ask for at the cost of everyone else’s lives! Brainwashed to all hell to anticipate, cheer on, encourage, & bet on the spectacle that is The Hunger Games! Kids killing kids is the best, right?? Can’t wait for the tribute tour!! People literally starving to death to provide them food that is so abundantly plentiful that they make themselves vomit so they can keep eating more!
Oh, look- Snow’s mansion! Remember the countless number of people he’s manipulated, tortured, & murdered?? Oh boy. Watch out for the pods! Don’t want to set one of those off! Then you’ll die in a more horrific way than you could have ever possibly imagined. Watch out for the Mutts! They’ll literally eat you. Better keep your mouth shut, too. Don’t want to be turned into an Avox. That’s no fun! Just ask Pollux or Darius. Well, actually, they couldn’t answer you because they cut your tongue out. Nevermind.
Water park? No. Training area? No. District 13? Nope.
Don’t want it. Don’t need it. Don’t do it.
I’ve been running this blog for about two years now & it’s been one of my most favorite things. It was something I began doing out of nowhere & still to this day I love it. I love being able to create something that makes people smile or laugh. I love all the kindness. I love this whole darn thing, all of it, all of you.
So, I hope you don’t mind me taking a quick minute to promote myself on my blog :)
Anyways, I recently opened up an Etsy shop! It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years. It’s something people have been telling me I should do for even longer. Haha. It’s me doing what my heart wants, kind of like this blog. I want to create. I want to make people happy.
It’s a lot like my tumblr blogs- general snark & humor with the occasional scifi or book nerd items. If you’d like to check it out that’s great! If you want to share, that’s even more awesome.
If you’d like to follow my shop tumblr, you can find me here:
Or be besties, actual me is: Reneeduhhh
♦ No worries, btw- I promise this is the one & only post about my shop I’ll post on here. It’s still strictly Mean Girls of Panem! ♦
Thanks again for all the love & kindness through the years! ♥
Even though it’s only 1 minute long, the Our Leader the Mockingjay trailer feels enormous. My favorite thing about it is the look and feel of the districts. You’ll recognize a few, and how Francis captures them is very unique but still beautifully faithful to the books. And Katniss. We see Katniss and she breaks your heart. The “I am. I will.” line you’ve been hearing all day will give you goosebumps long after you watch it.
hopefully it’ll be online soon!
