This episode for me really highlighted and then in its dramatic finale brought to an extreme the use of perspective that Rebecca Sugar has often talked about during panels. In her rare appearances, we are almost always looking up at Rose Quartz, or she is leaning down and over our POV - be it Pearl kneeling before her hologram in Rose’s Scabbard
or Greg on a number of occasions during the early days of their relationship (We Need To Talk is a really interesting watch with regards to camera angles and how they change - Greg literally climbs a stack of crates during his attempt at communication and, well, seeing eye to eye)
or Garnet after her fateful fall in The Answer
or, hey, Buddy Buddwick collapsed in the desert in Buddy’s Book
She even has magical floating powers.
It all fits, of course, with the entire running theme of the (unattainable/unmaintainable) pedestal. And even when she is not directly present, and even when it’s not the focus of the shot, her portrait can be seen overlooking the familiar setting of the beach house.
the worst thing about bad cgi movies is that each one has to cram in a forced tearjerker scene ala every pixar movie ever without the rest of the movie having any hint of character or sentimentality, so you know something like boss baby or the emoji movie is going to have this weird out of place scene where the characters lose sight of their goals or end up hurting each other and they walk slowly to sad music before realizing something about themselves or about what they need to do to make things better, except instead of it being genuinely charming characters you relate to, its alec baldwin the dreamworks baby whose bare ass you’ve been forced to look at for at least 20 minutes prior
okay but for real sebastian stan though when someone asked him if he could hug them really tight he said “of course, that’s what i’m made for!”, he gets bashful and hides his face when he gets complimented and can’t stop the grin that ends up on his face, he made a life long friend on a plane by talking about existentialism to distract from his fear of flying, he calls his mama every single week at least once to check in and see how she is, he tells his friends he loves them publicly which like, might not seem like a big deal but i know men with masculinity so fragile they won’t even use emoji’s bc they think it’s “gay”, let alone tell their other male friends they love them, he calls his fans his friends on the regular like… he’s just such a good guy??? like genuinely so good and kind hearted and soft??? and the world is so much better with him in it????
even if you make the executive decision to never watch classicaloid, please watch this scene. I’ve rewatched episode 11 fifty times just for this one scene. please. watch it. watch the scene. I made a youtube account for it
The Trump Administration recently released its proposed federal budget for FY2018. The Institute of Museum of Library Services (IMLS), the independent agency that administers the bulk of federal library funding under the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA),is included in the list of independent agencies whose budgets the proposal recommends eliminating.
There’s an easy way for you to help - call your Representative today and ask them to sign the letters now circulating. These letters support $186.6 million for the Library Services and Technology Act, which goes to every state in the country for them to decide how best to use it, and $27 million for the Innovative Approaches to Literacy Program that buys books and other supplies for kids from the poorest communities across the country.
Members of the House have only until April 3 to let our
champions know that they will sign the separate LSTA and IAL “Dear
Appropriator” letters now circulating, so there’s no time to lose.
Use ALA’s Legislative Action Center today
to ask your Member of Congress to sign both the LSTA and IAL letters. Many Members of Congress will only sign such a letter if their
constituents ask them to, so it’s up to you to help save LSTA and IAL
from elimination or significant cuts.
Five minutes of your time could help preserve over $210 million in library funding now at risk.
So I’m not saying we need a “soft spoken boy from an RPG Maker Game with Creepy Elements who has blue eyes and shaggy blond hair from Probably Europe^tm who is barely a (fancily dressed) teenager, whose tragic past has led to misfortune for not only him but several people around him (because of death and forces beyond his control), and it falls to him to deal with its consequences in the present” support group…
