above&beyond

Honestly I would have been satisfied if all we got was the two of them sitting so closely together. Bless Kubo-sensei and Team YOI for going well above and beyond for us. I can’t wait to see how extra considerate and generous they will be to us with the official movie. I hope we get more of these two cuties and of course lotsa Viktuuri love, on and off the ice.

the spy kids movies went above and beyond its premise in a way no other movies do today. like, it could have easily been just “what if kids became spies” but no it also has to have scenes like this:

and of course the sequel which has this part:

dear maxine,

you managed it. the impossible. you took a storyline that had been sinking lower and lower into the gutter, and you not only patched up the barest threads of what it had been, but you made it infinitely more poignant and emotional than anyone could have anticipated or even hoped for. you were balanced in your narrative, you allowed the characters to react in the most natural and believable way possible, and you brought about a resolution that was satisfying and beautiful to watch. truly, it was a masterclass in writing and it showcased your understanding of the characters, your love for the show, and more than any of that, your unparalleled talent.

i salute you.

Fascinating Social Experiment: These Millions Of Women Tried Cheap Drugstore Makeup For Their Entire Lives

Every day, we are bombarded with ads telling us that we need top-of-the-line makeup to look beautiful, and anything less is unacceptable. But is this stigma surrounding low-end cosmetics really deserved? These millions of women decided to find out in a totally interesting way: They tried using cheap drugstore makeup for their entire lives.

Wow. What an absolutely incredible social experiment.

Ranging in age from 11 to 63, these millions of women have been walking into their local CVS or Walgreens, selecting some budget eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick straight off the shelves, and using those items as their exclusive sources of makeup. What makes this even more amazing is that unlike most social experiments, which only last a week or so, these millions of women showed complete dedication by being willing to spend their entire adult lives using these non-name-brand foundations and concealers. Incredibly, at no point over the decades that they’ve been illuminating how the cosmetics industry manipulates the way we view ourselves did these brave social experimenters drop more than $100 at Ulta to try out a new look.

Though it’s hard to imagine how anyone would be comfortable using $6 blush for even seven days, the scores upon scores of women went above and beyond, suffering through makeup hauls that didn’t even top out at $35 for years on end to prove a point about society.

While this undertaking already sounds crazy difficult, it gets even more impressive when you think about the many events that these women attended while wearing drugstore makeup. From job interviews to first dates and even weddings, these millions of women never caved and used an Urban Decay Naked eye-shadow palette or a Kylie Jenner lip kit. They simply toughed it out while contouring their faces with cheap drugstore highlighters and even cheaper drugstore beauty blenders, all in the name of a fascinating social experiment.

Simply amazing. To all the women who have been participating in this eye-opening trial, your point is well-made and totally inspiring. Now go treat yourself with a shopping spree at Bloomingdale’s. You’ve earned it!

Hey Emma! I really value your opinion because you consider it all before dismissing something. What do you make of this girl antis/het fans found? Her name is Townes, from South Carolina, moved to LA &she has met Harry and her friend has a pic with him, and most of all, Cam Azoff follows her on sm... Obviously I dont think he slept with her, but he said she didnt know about the song but her name was on it, aka Townes. Do you think this was on purpose by his team? They knew fans would investigate

I have no idea what the song means, but Harry set himself up for this one, and the fact that people were able to find someone with that name that fit the description of the song tells me that they used that name intentionally. I won’t pretend to understand the logic behind naming a girl in a song that a lot of people think is about fucking said girl when there’s a fandom of people who go above and beyond with stalking people and finding shit out, but hey. I’m just:

It is what it is and people are going to believe they want on both sides. I personally don’t think Harry fucked this chick and all my beliefs about Harry’s sexuality and relationship with Louis still apply, but that’s about as far as my opinion on it goes. I’m kinda indifferent to most of the song/lyric discussions at this point. And as much as people say this isn’t really a het album at all, I personally think most of the messages and truths in the songs are intentionally muddled, confusing, and layered, not only for artistry purposes and because that’s how Harry likes to write songs, but also because every fan can read into things (or not read into things) the way they want to.

And maybe that’s part of the magic of this album, I guess, though I still haven’t heard it and can’t say for sure. Harry told us all that it’s honest, and people believed him on both sides, but everyone has twisted themselves into knots trying to explain his lyrics while he twists himself into knots during interviews trying to avoid explaining his lyrics, or explaining them differently each time, and in the end, the only person who knows the truth is Harry, and all we have is an “honest” album where the honesty can be explained and interpreted a million different ways. So to an extent he made us all feel closer to him and the core of who he is, but he has still kept us all at a distance, whether you think he’s straight or gay or another sexuality, whether you think he’s with Louis or Tess or someone else, and so on. And just as we listen to his long rambling answers in interviews and realize that he spoke a lot and said very little, maybe we will all listen to this “honest” album without actually learning that much more about Harry, but feeling like we did. Maybe that’s the magic of Harry Styles, you know? Maybe that’s the magic of this masterpiece in storytelling that he worked so hard on and put out at a time when the traditional brand of honesty is quite far from what he can offer to any of his fans. And I’m okay with that, honestly.
