I can’t believe I sat down and watched that anime dragon tiddy anime
And I’m genuinely interested in seeing more
Like honestly it’s way more cuter then expected and it’s explicitly stated that the dragon lady is in LOVE with the human lady
Like this is just so gay its incredible
Also they adopt a dragon child so I guess they’re parents now

Sketches to stitches.
 Ta-Da! This is my renaisance vest/bodice (whatever you want to call it) that I just finished. I sketched this design on Sunday and spent the last two days making it. Not a bad three day turn-around if you ask me.

 Every day we get closer to quest and I’m getting more and more excited!

anonymous asked:

Can you recommend some podcasts for me? I liked The Morified, My Dad wrote a Porno, My Favorite Murder and Welcome to Night Vale. I'm looking for something is very dramatic like Welcome to Night Vale or even anything similar to the podcasts listened above. Plz help! xx

Don’t worry, anon, we got this!

If you’re looking for dramatic things, definitely check out the Spooky Scary Podcasts recommendation list, as well as some of these other asks we’ve answered. I especially want to recommend Wolf 359 (!!), The Black Tapes, and The Penumbra.

Also, if you like long audio dramas with a lot of action, check out We’re Alive (flawed, yes, but certainly dramatic!)

If you’d rather listen to something lighthearted and fun (like My Dad Wrote A Porno), there are some great suggestions on this list.


Since you also list My Favourite Murder, here are some more true crime (-ish) podcasts you might want to check out:

Hollywood & Crime: 

Docu-drama about the Black Dahlia murder in 1947 - and a dozen other murders happening at the same time in suspiciously similar circumstances …

Serial:

Sarah Koenig investigates the murder of a young girl, and the circumstances of her boyfriend’s arrest - and conviction.

Unsolved Murders: True Crime Stories:

Highly immersive true crime podcast that sometimes feels more like a old time-y audio drama.

Last Podcast on the Left:

Aliens, murders, conspiracy theories, and more!
Warning: not all their language is what we’d consider politically correct, and the humor is rather … crude … maybe a bit harsh sometimes? Also there is swearing, sometimes a lot. So if that’s something you’re not sure about, proceed with caution.

You Must Remember This:

All about “the secret and/or forgotten history of Hollywood’s first century”; not a true crime podcast, but due to the nature of Hollywood’s first century, there is quite a lot of crime in it, like the Black Dahlia case, or a whole season about Charles Manson!! (I couldn’t stop listening!!)


Hope you’ll find something you like!

Hi! I've been reading your posts on Mad Max Fury Road and they are simply BRILLIANT. Thank you for sharing them! I'm a film studies student from Italy and I wanted to write a paper on women in the action genre, I wondered if you had any suggestions about blog posts/papers/books to read on the subject. (Basically this paper will be a gigantic build up to say: why don't other filmmakers do it like George Miller? Duh).

Thank you! Glad you like my posts. If you haven’t already, I recommend you check out @redshoesnblueskies’s master list of MMFR Tumblr analysis here and here, particularly @bonehandledknife‘s composition analysis posts.

Regarding books on women in action…I feel like this is something I ought to have a bibliography at the ready for, but I don’t. Just based on a quick and thoroughly unscientific survey, some books that might be worth checking out:

Action Chicks: New Images of Tough Women in Popular Culture - Sherrie Inness (2004)

Tough Girls: Women Warriors and Wonder Women in Popular Culture - Sherrie Inness again (1998)

Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology - Jennifer Stuller (2010)

The Modern Amazons: Warrior Women on Screen (2006) - Dominique Mainon and James Ursini - notable because it seems to cover Asian action films at least a little

Super Bitches and Action Babes: The Female Hero in Popular Cinema, 1970-2006 - Rikke Schubart (2007)

Women of Blaxploitation: How the Black Action Film Heroine Changed American Popular Culture - Yvonne Sims (2006)

I can’t vouch specifically for any of these books. Scan some indexes/introductions to see if they’d be helpful to you. (And let me know if any of them are.)

You may also note that the most recent of these books is from 2010, which is not necessarily helpful for the most recent crop of female-led YA action and reboots/remakes/franchise updates with female protagonists, but I couldn’t find anything more recent.

You’ll probably find a lot more in the way of articles by looking up the specific films you’re planning to discuss. One of my favorites that talks specifically about MMFR and feminism is Laurie Penny’s review here. Insightful as well as hilariously funny.

I am sure there are a slew of more film-theory-oriented academic articles about this topic, but that’s not really my area of expertise.

Hope this is marginally useful as a place to start. Tumblrverse, feel free to help a film student out with any additions.

Moments earlier:

What a great reward he chose for himself. (x)

He never said I love you.
I never asked why.
I was too scare to hear the answer.
Too scare to know the truth.
I wish I’d had listen to my mama
When she said :
“baby girl, don’t automatically believe
what a man says without even checking if
his actions match his words”
Mama where are you,
to see what a shameful woman I’ve become.
