Hi, I’m Tay and if you didn’t know, now you know. I sing-song and headbang. I like memes and The Weeknd and Greek mythology and Hamilton. I miss my cat and my dog and I like children far more than I like adults.
I’m really friendly so let’s be friends. My aim is tay.kathleen and if I don’t reply immediately, I will almost always get back to you at some point.

Description Of The Exclusive Star Wars: Rogue One Celebration Trailer - Darth Vader Unveiled
It opens on a barren, scorched planet with a young girl running from an invading Imperial shuttle, which is likely Jyn’s origins, then jump forward to the set up of the mission; we see beach utopia Scarif dominated by the Imperials while Jyn delivers a rallying speech that shows her actively pursuing action in voice-over.
What follows is a mixture of the Jedda sequence (the town from the first half of the original teaser) and the Scarif assault - there’s troopers in the jungle and a lot more of Donnie Yen kicking Stormtrooper butt (or, more accurately, stabbing Stormtrooper neck). As we go on the scope gets bigger; we see a new landing craft with four flaps coming in from below with a Star Destroyer looming in the sky and some aliens in action taking up the Rebel cause. There’s also some more of Krennic, the movie’s big bad, especially of him on the ground with a support of Imperial officers (oddly wearing a black cap that clashes with his white robes).
Now I will say this: a lot of the footage seems to be from the scenes we saw being filmed in the sizzle reel, just in its beautiful finished form, so if you weren’t there don’t feel too left out! Well, aside from the ending…
You see, all the awesome I’ve described fades into insignificance with the final shot. We cut to an Imperial corridor. The camera slowly pans up and we see the blood red reflection of an Empire monitor in the impeccably buffed floor, disturbed by a striking silhouette. Then the deep breathing begins…
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne says that when people say “all lives matter” in response to Black Lives Matter, it reminds her of people saying, “Why don’t straight people have a parade?”
Wynne, who is openly gay, responded to questions Thursday about a member of The Tenors changing the national anthem’s lyrics at the Major League Baseball all-star game to the controversial phrase.
“I think what is heard by people who heard him sing that is that, ‘You don’t understand what we’re saying. What we’re saying is that there’s a particular issue,”’ she said.
“It’s like when people have said to me in the past, 'Well, straight people don’t have a parade. Why don’t straight people have a parade? Everybody should be proud of who they are.’ Well, yeah, that’s true, but straight people experience life differently than gay, lesbian, bi, transgender (and) two-spirited people. So I think that there’s a lot of misunderstanding that happens when we get into the use of language in this way.”
Singer Remigio Pereira inserted “all lives matter” into O Canada while singing a solo verse of the anthem on Tuesday night and held up a sign bearing the message.
my favourite aspect of ghostbusters was that the main villain, rowan north, was painted EXACTLY like the guys who hate the movie…misogynistic, self-entitled, cringeworthy, have nothing better to do than try to ruin other people’s fun, etc. so honestly the next time a guy is like “the new ghostbusters shouldnt exist” just call them rowan north because honestly people like them INSPIRED his character.
