Trump’s nuts roasting on an open fire
as he keeps nipping at his foes.
you’ll cry creepy uncle
every time he arrives
for he keeps clawing at your clothes
everybody knows some money and entitlement
can help to make the season white
mothers of color with their kids out of sight
will find it hard to sleep at night.

They know that truuump is on his way.
he’s got black boys in hoodies locked up on his sleigh
and every working man is going to cry
when they learn that Letch don’t care how you live or if you die

Sooo I’m offering this simple phrase
to kids from 1 to 92
although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Donald Trump, fuck you

I think it’s kind of sweet how the kids are wearing the same clothes they were wearing when their parents died the whole time they were with Count Olaf, and they finally start wearing other outfits when they go to Monty’s. Like you know he took them out and let them pick out new clothes and get whatever they wanted, which would’ve meant so much to them after losing everything they had. Gave them something of their own again. I think that’s a real credit to the show’s crew, and the character of Uncle Monty. Just a little detail that might go unnoticed, but adds just that much to the story.

Now…I know that a few dangerous reptiles can make you skeptical of the entire species. But…if you give them a chance and you get to know them well enough to tell the dangerous from the good…I promise you, no harm will come to you in the Reptile Room.
—  Uncle Monty, A Series Of Unfortunate Events

You know that scene (here’s a link) where little Gaara and Yashamaru are having dinner together and Gaara asks “Why do we get hungry?” and Yashamaru answers “In order for us to eat good food” 

Like… that whole scene is symbolizing the theme that there will be times when we must feel pain in order to feel and appreciate love, like taking in the bad in turn for the good in life. Rather than talking about food, Gaara is asking, in the deeper sense, why do people hurt? Why do people feel pain? And Yashamaru’s response tells him that the reason is because then we will be able to accept love fully.  

And then Gaara responds “You’re right! The meals you make taste good, Yashamaru!” and I think little Gaara is actually saying, in the deeper sense, that the love he receives from Yashamaru makes going through the pain he feels easier to bear and accept.    

And then he has that love betrayed through the assassination, and Gaara goes on living the exact opposite way, rejecting to feel anything but hatred, because he does not believe love is a possibility anymore. 

… I need to go lay down… forever :)

Whatever you do, don’t think of a five year old Sally Jackson desperately wondering how her parents could leave her, not understanding why she was now all alone. 

Don’t think about a sixteen year old Sally Jackson having to drop out of high-school and take up several jobs to support her uncle, burying her dream of graduating and becoming a writer, because it was never going to happen now.

Don’t think about a seventeen year old Sally Jackson watching all her friends go on to college, slowly leaving her behind and forgetting about her. 

Don’t think about an eighteen year old Sally Jackson crying at her uncle’s funeral, because that was it, her family was fully gone, and she was all alone. 

Don’t think about a twenty year old Sally Jackson lying on the beach, after she found out Poseidon, the man she had fallen in love with so deeply and quickly, was a god, realising that he too would leave her. 

Don’t think about a twenty year old Sally Jackson finding out she was pregnant, and realising that her baby would be a demigod, and attract monsters… and then running into a man called Gabe at work that day.

Don’t think about a twenty-one year old Sally Jackson crying as she held her newborn baby, because if she was sure about one thing, it was that her baby was going to have a better life than she did, and she would never, ever leave him. 

Don’t think about her kissing her baby’s forehead, and, recalling all the myths her parents had told her when she was young of one particular hero, whispering, “I name you Perseus.”  

From David McCallum’s official Facebook page:

The Man from Uncle! His name is Robert Kagan and we exchanged presents! After fifty plus years I have my original badge and I can once again “Open Channel D” with the communicator! Robert purchased them at an MGM auction!

I am so happy he has his original badge again! That is so awesome :3 (and may I add he looks amazingly handsome as usual *__*)

ok listen i really liked the new SU and think it covered a difficult family situation that many relate to and can have strong feelings about

and it did so realistically

so uhhh

think on that before you cry about “endorsing racist uncles”
