Warner Bros. is making an Adventure Time movie

Oh my glob! Mathematical! Bacon pancakes! No, we’re not having a stroke, we’re referencing Adventure Time—the popular kids TV show that is secretly for adults (but it’s barely a secret). And we’re not just referencing Adventure Time because everyone on the Internet constantly references Adventure Time, but because Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network have announced that they’re making an Adventure Time movie. Like, a real movie. It’ll be in theaters and everything. We’ll give you a minute to calm down.

Are you OK? Good. This comes from Deadline, which reports that the Adventure Time movie will be produced by Chris McKay and Roy Lee, both of whom previously worked together on another big-screen kids’ movie that was also adult-friendly: The Lego Movie. McKay has also been announced as the director for Lego Batman, and Lee is producing that spinoff, so it seems clear that WB is hoping for Adventure Time to be as much of a hit as The Lego Movie was. Deadline even points out how much “franchise potential” it has, which is the sort of corporate language that seems especially inappropriate when talking about something as delightfully weird as Adventure Time.

The years spent in isolation have not equipped him with the tools necessary to judge right from wrong. He’s had no context. He’s been completely without guidance. Furthermore, his work - the garden sculptures, hairstyles and so forth - indicate that he’s a highly imaginative… uh… character. It seems clear that his awareness of what we call reality is radically underdeveloped.

nb0nb0 asked:

could you recommend your favourite russian musicals? I have seen стиляги and I would like to know more about the history of musical films in the ussr :) thank you!

Thanks for asking! Oh, there are so many Soviet musical films, and most of them are really good! Austrian operettas were extremely popular in the Soviet Union, and many were televised. Two names are particularly noteworthy here: Johann Strauss II and Emmerich Kálmán. Here are some of the most popular operetta films:

Both are Kalman’s Die Zirkusprinzessin

More musical style films are:

In 70s and throughout 80s, plays by Lope de Vega and some other classical European writers had become very popular. I wouldn’t call them musicals, but there are many songs in those movies:

And, of course, I can’t miss the most popular Soviet music series The Three Musketeers. Here is the first series: href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esgo4KoyOQs”>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esgo4KoyOQs

Dearest children,
Since we’ve been abroad, we’ve missed you all so much. Certain events have compelled us to expand our travels. One day, when you are older, you will learn all about the people we have befriended, and the dangers we have faced. Dangers we never could have imagined existed. At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, and our lives can seem like a random series of unfortunate events. But, believe it when we say there is much more good in the world than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough.
We hope to have you back in our arms soon darlings. But in case this letter arrives before our return, know that we love you. It fills us with pride to know that no matter what happens in this life that you three will take care of each other with kindness and bravery and selflessness as you always have. And remember one thing my darlings and never forget it, that no matter where we are, know that as long as you have each other, you have your family and you’re home. 
Your loving parents.
