The brain has no sex. A woman’s intellect and inventiveness, as well as her ingenuity, are equal to a man’s… A man often depends on physical strength to get what he wants, while a woman has to be more subtle; so she uses her brain. And she is constantly getting more practice. That’s why I say that it’s becoming a woman’s world, year by year, almost day by day.

— Mary Pickford, 1935.


Quick Guide Post Number 6- How The Movies Learned To Talk

About time I made another one of these! Things have been preeetty busy lately.

I’m a big fan of Tom Scharpling and his weekly radio show/podcast The Best Show.

A few weeks back Tom improvised a version of how he expected the movie Chappie to go. It cracked me up, so I animated around the audio.

Full disclosure: No one involved in the making of this thing has actually seen Chappie. Any accuracy or spoilers are completely accidental.

This has been the 2nd winter in a row that hasn’t been jaw pain hell for me, which is wonderful, and thanks entirely to a really simple exercise I was given by dentist!

I figure this will come in really handy for other people who suffer with TMJ or any other conditions that cause jaw pain.

  1. Put your tongue on the soft part of your palette at the back of your mouth.
  2. Keeping your tongue in place, open your mouth as wide as you can without it hurting or clicking. Make sure you open it straight!
  3. Keep your mouth open for 5-10 seconds before closing it.
  4. Repeat for a few minutes every day.

It’s important to keep this up as it strengthens your jaw muscles over time. It WON’T stop your jaw from clicking, but it does keep it from hurting so much and makes it a lot less sensitive to the cold (although do still make sure to wrap your face up warm just in case!)

The frustration when two girls dating, no matter what orientation, are called lesbians. Are there any terms for like, bi girls dating? Pan girls dating? Demi girls??? etc

calling everyone lesbians just erases sexualites

I just thought of some bagginshield prompts and I stg they need to be written:

-“I kinda ran away from home and accidentally joined a circus, and now my parents found me but I don’t want to leave cuz the ringmaster’s hot”

- “My friends an I got wasted at a college party and I tried to sneak in through the window back into my dorm but it turns out I was one room off and now its 3:00am and I’m asleep in the arms of a classmate”

- “I work at the zoo and some idiot leaned down far enough to fall in the giraffe habitat”

- “I’m pretty sure we’ve taken this left turn before but I don’t want you to feel like we’re lost, but we’re definitely lost”

- “I was walking backwards while talking to my friend and I turned around just in time to walk into a pole, now my nose is bleeding and the nurse is laughing at me”

- “I hit a rock while riding my bike and now its stuck in some rocks by the river, its your property though and I don’t want to seem stupid in front of the neighbors”

- “we went to Disneyland and the haunted mansion has broken down five times already and now we’re stuck in a cramped doom-buggy forced to stare at madam leota, also its really dark in here.”

Vitaphone was a sound film system used for feature films and nearly 1,000 short subjects made by Warner Bros. and its sister studio First National from 1926 to 1931. Vitaphone was the last major analogsound-on-disc system and the only one which was widely used and commercially successful. The soundtrack was not printed on the film itself, but issued separately on phonograph records. The discs, recorded at 33 1/3 rpm (a speed first used for this system) and typically 16 inches in diameter, would be played on a turntable physically coupled to the projector motor while the film was being projected. Many early talkies, such as The Jazz Singer (1927), used the Vitaphone system. The name “Vitaphone” derived from the Latin and Greek words, respectively, for “living” and “sound”.

The “Vitaphone” trademark was later associated with cartoons and other short subjects that had optical soundtracks and did not use discs.
