moodboard: the great gatsby

“ I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn’t believe it would come, and perhaps he no longer scared. If that was true that he must have felt that he had lost the old warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream. he must have looked up at the unfamiliar sky through frightening leaves and shivered as he found what a grotesque thing a rose is and how raw the sunlight was upon the scarcely created grass. A new world, material without being reran, where poor ghosts, breathing dreams like air, drifted fortuitously about….like that ashen, fantastic figure gliding toward him through the amorphous trees.” 

Yo, any ARG fans out there: Have you heard of Daisy Brown?

It’s this weird twitter account that popped up recently of a girl named Daisy Brown. She tweets weird things about having a monster named Alan in her house. Apparently she just found a laptop in her attic and has never heard of the internet before.

She tweets several times a day about weird random things that make it seem like she’s living a very strange life. 

She also talks about her Dad sometimes, I don’t know if her Dad is dead or missing or what, but he apparently “created” Alan.

I originally thought that this was a challenged person that people were messing with online. I even tweeted at her and she responded!

I had stopped paying attention to Daisy’s twitter for a while but when I looked back at it today I saw THIS.

IS THAT ALAN??

Anyway I just wanted to spread the word because not many people know about this weird situation. I’m not sure exactly where it’s gonna go but I am definitely curious and excited.

Great Gatsby Modern AU

-Jay Gatsby filled out his own Wikipedia page but it got taken down for not being sourced
-Jordan and Daisy are together and get gal palled all the time
-Before he comes out to Jay, Nick runs into him at a gay club. He’s not sure how he feels about that info getting out but he realizes Gatsby has no idea what kind of joint it is but is there all the time.

The Great Gatsby Dreamcast-

(Currently, I’m kind of obsessed with The Great Gatsby now since I read it my English class, LOVED IT! I also loved both the 1974 version and 2013 version, and the soundtrack is really good too. Anyway, I’m kind of surprised that there isn’t some sort of musical adaption to this amazing book, so being the musical theatre nerd that I am, I decided to do some dreamcasting)

Jeremy Jordan as Nick Carraway

Aaron Tveit as Jay Gatsby (I feel like he could pull off any role that Leonardo DiCaprio has ever played)

Laura Osnes as Daisy Buchanan (Come on she would perfect for this role and I kinda wanna hear her pull off Daisy’s “charming voice.”)

Phillipa Soo as Jordan Baker

Ramin Karimloo as Tom Buchanan

Sierra Boggess as Myrtle Wilson

Nick Cordero as George Wilson

Tom Wopat as Meyer Wolfsheim

The signs as The Great Gatsby quotes

Aries: ‘there was an immediately perceptible vitality about her as if the nerves of her body were continually smouldering. She smiled slowly and, walking through her husband as if he were a ghost, shook hands with Tom, looking him flush in the eye.’ 

Taurus: ‘only the dead dream fought on as the afternoon slipped away, trying to touch what was no longer tangible, struggling unhappily, undespairingly, toward that lost voice across the room.’

Gemini: ‘Her laughter, her gestures, her assertions became more violently affected moment by moment, and as she expanded the room grew smaller around her, until she seemed to be revolving on a noisy, creaking pivot through the smoky air.’ 

Cancer: ‘I felt a haunting loneliness sometimes, and felt it in others - poor young clerks who loitered in front of windows waiting until it was time for a solitary restaurant dinner - young clerks in the dusk, wasting the most poignant moments of night and life.’

Leo: ‘”Her voice is full of money,” he said suddenly. That was it. I’d never understood before. It was full of money - that was the inexhaustible charm that rose and fell in it, the jingle of it, the cymbal’s song of it… High in a white palace the king’s daughter, the golden girl…’

Virgo: ‘He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God.’

Libra: ‘[Daisy] began to ask me questions in her low, thrilling voice. It was the kind of voice that the ear follows up and down, as if each speech is an arrangement of notes that will never be played again.’

Scorpio: ‘She was incurably dishonest. She wasn’t able to endure being at a disadvantage and, given this unwillingness, I suppose she had begun dealing in subterfuges when she was very young in order to keep that cool, insolent smile turned to the world and yet satisfy the demands of her hard, jaunty body.’

Sagittarius: ‘He must have looked up at an unfamiliar sky through frightening leaves and shivered as he found what a grotesque thing a rose is and how raw the sunlight was upon the scarcely created grass. A new world, material without being real, where poor ghosts, breathing dreams like air, drifted fortuitously about…’ 

Capricorn: ‘Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms further… And one fine morning - So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.’

Aquarius: ‘He had thrown himself into [the dream] with a creative passion, adding to it all the time, decking it out with every bright feather that drifted his way. No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man can store up in his ghostly heart.’

Pisces: ‘For a while these reveries provided an outlet for his imagination; they were a satisfactory hint of the unreality of reality, a promise that the rock of the world was founded securely on a fairy’s wing.’

“The parties were bigger. The pace was faster, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper.“

it recently hit me the reason hollywood is so heavily populated with white girls who can’t act is bc they never wanna give women of color a chance… you have upcomers like anya taylor-joy but who is she really fighting for roles with? emma watson? shailene woodley? kristen stewart? lmao they’re all literally the same person, you can’t never give these white actresses full credit bc they truly have zero competition besides their other mediocre selves and even the better ones like jennifer lawrence and margot robbie don’t even have any range, hell scarlett johansson is really out here sleepwalking her way through movies and making millions for it… at least with the men you can point out to the few michael b. jordans and oscar isaacs that we do have and ask why they’re so insistent on casting the hemsworthless brothers and charlie hunnams when they’re right there, but when it comes to women??? jfc black actresses like tessa thompson, ruth negga and gugu mbatha-raw have to wait until they’re in their fucking thirties only to share the spotlight with the daisy ridleys who can be crowned movie stars over night without any experience
