Fast As You Can - Fiona Apple

"I kept thinking about why Fiona Apple scares people so much. And she does scare people - to the extent that she represents female fury and honesty about how much relationships can ruin you, and also actual mental illness, with her alleged eating disorders and frequent disappearances and occasional interviews where she talks about being raped and not giving a shit what people think.

If Fiona Apple were a man, her idiosyncrasies would be chalked up to her being unique, quirky, wild. She would be Tom Waits. Her strangeness would be part of the package, celebrated. But because she’s a woman she’s “unstable” and “depressed” and “crazy.” I’ve read articles that imply that men should watch out for Fiona, because she clearly hates men and sings about the bad things they do………Why is there such a fine line between angry and crazy for women?

When I was a teenage girl who didn’t understand why boys were so stupid all the time, why they treated me like shit, I empathized with Fiona singing oh darling it’s so sweet you think you know how crazy how crazy I am, but that song (“Fast As You Can”) isn’t really about being crazy. It’s about being made to feel like you’re crazy because you’re pissed off.” (x)

Misfits is the ultimate show of wasted potential though because it showed early on how good it can be when it works and then switched drastically to show how bad it can be when it doesn’t

As if there wasn’t an episode of Misfits where it’s revealed literally everybody in the area at the time of the storm now has superpowers but 90% of them are so useless or situational as to be mostly invisible
