Women Don’t Often Get to Make Period Dramas?-)

Menstrual blood?
Mary Queen of Scots director Josie Rourke defends menstrual blood scenes: 'Normalisation is a good thing'
"Mary Queen Of Scots director Josie Rourke has spoken about her decision to include a shot of menstrual blood after recieving multiple questions about the scene from American journalists."
'Super wolf blood moon' to welcome in 2019 with rare celestial spectacle this month
'Mary Queen of Scots' opened in Australian cinemas this week ... the weekend of the super wolf blood moon coincidentally ... and I went along to see the movie on Friday.
I hadn't read any of the reviews before seeing the movie, but I did notice the emphasis on blood in the movie, as in menstrual blood and a bloody birth scene.
Didn't worry me in the least, as I thought it was underlining how important bloodlines were when it comes to the throne.
I kind of thought that was clever, but I have to say I thought it was bloody stupid to try and re-write history by trying to play the "diversity" card in an historical drama.
Traditionally, a wolf moon is the first full moon in January, said Tracy Gregg, planetary scientist at the University at Buffalo.
A super moon is when there is a full moon at the same time that the moon is closest to Earth,” Gregg said. “The distance between the Earth and Moon changes slightly every day as the Moon orbits the Earth [and] the full moon occurs when the moon and Earth are closest to each other, [when] the Moon really does look bigger than usual.”
As the Earth's shadow comes between the Sun and the full moon, the moon's color changes to a reddish tint,” Gregg explained.
I guess the movie going public like nothing better than a royal drama or two;-)
The Shape of (Amniotic?) Fluid?
A stuffed dingo awaits the royal couple at
Kingfisher Bay on Fraser Island
The Trickster Awaits?
And while we don't have (were)wolves in Australia we do have dingoes and on Saturday night there was an attack on Fraser Island.  
Fraser Island dingo attack leaves boy in hospital with leg injuries
"A six-year-old child is in hospital after being bitten multiple times by a dingo on Fraser Island on Saturday evening.
The boy was bitten on the lower leg while returning to his campsite with his family at Eurong on the island's eastern side.
Paramedics were called shortly after 6:00pm and an ambulance spokesperson said the boy was in a stable condition.
Bundaberg LifeFlight helicopter airlifted the child to nearby Hervey Bay Hospital for further treatment.

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue aircrewman, Dan Leggat, said the incident occurred following an afternoon swim.
"The family had finished swimming when the young boy said he wanted to race up a sand dune," he said.
"Unfortunately, when he got to the top, there was a pack of
four dingoes.
One of the dingoes attacked the boy and bit him on the leg."
July 2017, a 25-year-old woman suffered minor injuries after being bitten on the arm by a dingo at Lake Mackenzie near the centre of the island."

I wonder if that bloody moon played a part in that drama on Fraser Island even though we couldn't see anything Down-under as far as the super wolf blood moon goes ... pardon the pun?-)
