Why Looney Tunes: Back in Action is objectively the greatest film ever made

No-one ever talks about Looney Tunes: Back in Action and that’s a crime.

Because…

Okay, Brendan Fraser plays a stuntman.

…who hates working with Brendan Fraser.

His dad is Timothy Dalton, who plays an actor most well known for spy films.

…who turns out to actually be a real spy and hides spy shit behind a portrait of himself.

So father and son have to team up to stop an evil genius…   played by a near-unrecognisable Steve Martin.

…whose henchman is WWE star Bill Goldberg.

By the way, Steve Martin is the head of the ACME corporation.

Yes, that ACME.

Oh, and among Martin’s underlings are Ron Perlman and Robert Picardo.

So anyway our heroes end up at Area Fifty TWO… which is run by Joan Cusack.

…and which houses all sorts of alien nasties, including…

TRIFFIDS

THIS ISLAND EARTH MUTANTS

ROBOT MONSTER

AND MOTHER FUCKING DALEKS

Plus the twins from Gremlins 2 play the WARNER BROTHERS

Shaggy and Scooby chastise Matthew Lillard over the live action Scooby Doo movie.

Porky Pig and Speedy Gonzales lament political correctness killing their careers.

Brendan Fraser gets to punch Brendan Fraser.

Fucking plus

Plus the whole time he’s accompanied by Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny, and the whole thing was directed by Joe Dante so you know that’s a perfect fit.

So in conclusion, please watch Looney Tunes: Back in Action. It will most likely change your life.

It’s time for another episode of “Western Civilization’s Greatest Trolls“

In the mid- to late-80′s, U2 got way into American music. You can watch a documentary about it here: Outside It’s America.

And so a lot of people were like “Ugh, what’s up with these guys coming here and trying to play the blues? Do you think because you recorded at Sun studios you’re as good as Elvis?” Just like now, people criticized U2 for being self-righteous and taking themselves too seriously.

The band was like, “Whatever, long hair don’t care.”

Literally:

Anyway, to twirl on the haters they said, “Let’s show them just how serious and unironic we can be.” So at three of their shows in 1987, they put on costumes and wigs to look like country singers and they appeared as their own opening act: The Dalton Brothers.

They talked with fake “country” accents and played Hank Williams songs. People in the audience were none the wiser; some actually booed them because they wanted them to get off the stage so U2 could come on.

At the 1989 Grammys, when U2 won an award for Best Band, Best Album, and Best Song of the 80′s, the Dalton Brothers accepted the award on their behalf. During the acceptance speech, Adam (in drag as Betty Dalton) completely biffed his attempt to quip, “We play both kinds of music – country and western.”

Anyway, so yeah, this is U2, being an utterly earnest and humorless political rock band.

Les Daltons


I am legit obsessed with everything about this show right now. The animation, the colour palettes, the theme song (one of which I personally think rivals that of Gravity Falls– and that’s saying a lot), the humour, the voice acting, the backgrounds, the characters. I flippin’ love the Dalton brothers– have since I was really, really small, and this show does them more than justice.

Yesterday I lost one of the strongest and bravest persons I have ever known. Endless battles and survivals. Always a fighter, never a victim. My hero and my inspiration. The person I looked up to since day one. My motivation to succeed. My number one fan. Everything I do, I will do for you. Everywhere I go, I will carry you in my heart. I should have told you these things sooner. I took you, your love, and your laughter for granted. It shouldn’t be this way. I should be coming home to see your smile, to hold you in my arms, and tell you I love you. There are no words to describe the amount of love and admiration I have for you. I can’t bring myself to say goodbye. I just can’t believe this is reality. My only hope is that you are free and at peace. No more pain, no more suffering. My courageous, strong, and loving big brother. My hero, my protector. I can’t say goodbye, not yet. I love you, Dalton. More than you could have ever imagined.

Friends - please tell your loved ones how much you love them. I know this is said over and over again but yesterday I learned the tragic reality that at any given moment, the worst thing can happen. I am beside myself and cannot believe I have lost my big brother. I love you all endlessly. We have all lost an incredible person. My heart is broken. I am broken. But if there is anything Dalton has taught me, it’s how to fight, stay strong, and persist.

Dalton was recently turned 25 and had been struggling with brain cancer. Sadly enough, it wasn’t the cancer that got him, it was a seizure. Dalton was also born with a bone disease called Ollier’s Disease and since day one faced a lifelong battle of mental and physical health. Dalton has donated his body to science in hopes that he can save a life. Because of his generosity and hopes of saving a life, we won’t be having a burial but are still moving forward with holding a ceremony, as well as having a marked memorial site so friends and family can celebrate his life and cherish the moments we all shared with him. If you are able to help out, I am accepting donations via my PayPal at lexiraelaraine@yahoo.com.

Dalton was such a very kind and gentle soul. I loved him so very much and can’t believe I will never be able to see him or hold him again. He was doing so well and finally feeling so happy. He was headed toward living the kind of life he’s always deserved and wanted to live. I can’t thank you all enough for the love. I’ve received an outpouring of messages from friends and family sending their condolences, as well as messages about times they had spent with my brother. Dalton had so much love to give. The world has lost a beautiful, beaming spirit, but his memory, his strength, his courage, and his love, will live on forever.

Being the baby sister of Dalton Castle had its perks. One of them was being introduced to wrestling at a very young age. I was fascinated by not only the physical aspect of it but as well as the dramatics. When Dalton took me to one of his shows I was instantly hooked and knew that I wanted to be a part of this beautiful profession. Being an amazing big brother that Dalton is he took me to every one of his shows in order for me to learn about the business. I was seeing the highs and lows but never thought twice about not wanting to experience it for my own.

french cartoons

les minikeums. those are latex puppets, for what i know. in the nineties it was the shit and everyone still knows the theme song. the characters are actually all inspired from a celebrity (jojo is johnny hallyday, m’sé is mc solaar…)


this is so old i’ve never even watched it (they stopped it in 1982). but it became legendary (as well as the theme song, which i know) ; it’s our version of sesame street. the orange dino is called casimir, he is 6′3 and eats gloubi-boulga.


this is for very young kids, quite recent and still going. the song stays stuck.


here is petit ours brun (small brown bear) who’s growing up with you and making mistakes so you don’t have to make them! quite cliché, though.


you might know les barbapapa (”cotton candy”) bc the inventors are a franco-américain couple. the pink one is the hero, meets his wife, has kids. it’s very cute and i actually really enjoyed it at the time!


also : babar (from the thirties, books made into a cartoon, quite horrible when you think about it : babar the elephant has to go to paris after mum was killed by a hunter and gets educated by an old lady, v colonialist), lucky luke (a lonesome nonchalant cow boy who chases villains, mostly the dalton brothers that are identical but recognizable because of their different heights), astérix et obélix (legendary, first comics, then a cartoon and (5?) movies : the exploits of a village of brave gauls as they resist roman occupation in 50bc by using a magic potion that gives them superhuman strength).

“Kiss You There” - Kurt/Blaine

blame whatstheproblembaby for this foolishness

Jon Snow!Blaine and Ygritte!Kurt, inspired by one of the greatest things that ever happened on Game of Thrones. But you can still enjoy if you’ve never seen the show!

Warnings: ye olde inexperienced oral

Blaine had never put much thought into what it would be like to be someone’s prisoner, but he never imagined that if and when the time came, he would actually enjoy it.

The Wildlings, well… they live up to their name, that much is certain. Their nights are loud and boisterous, like one big begrudging family when they circle around campfires and eat and sing and drink and taunt each other. These nights are more like the dinners Blaine had with his half-brother, Cooper, back at Winterfell, than the dinners Blaine endured at Castle Dalton with his oath-brothers in the Night’s Watch. But Blaine sticks out like a sore thumb in his heavy black furs, the Wildlings’ gray and white coats blending like camouflage in the snow. He is still an outsider, if a benign one they’ve grown accustomed to.

Though the Wildlings—or, the Free Folk, as they call themselves—don’t trust him, call him “the baby crow” and eye him with suspicion wherever he walks, they’ve stopped pulling their weapons on him whenever he gets too close or strays too far. Well, Kurt still pulls his bow on him at random from time to time, or his dagger if Blaine’s close enough and he’s in that sort of mood, but Kurt also calls him “the pretty crow” when he’s feeling charitable.

The Dalton Gang was a group of outlaws in the American Old West during 1890–1892. It was also known as The Dalton Brothers because three of its members were brothers, although not all of the gang members came from the Dalton family, and not all of the Dalton brothers were in the gang. The gang specialized in bank and train robberies. They were related to the Younger brothers, who rode with Jesse James, though they acted later and independently of the James-Younger Gang. The three Dalton brothers involved were Gratton “Grat” Dalton (born 1861), Bob Dalton (born 1869), and Emmett Dalton (born 1871). A fourth brother, William M. “Bill” Dalton (1866–1894), also had a career as an outlaw, but operated as a member of the Wild Bunch. xx

During the last decades of the 19th century, photographing dead outlaws served several purposes: it showed the power of the law and it garnished the photographer an income when he sold the photographs. In 1907, the photographic postcard became popular, and many photographers republished their images as postcards. They were popular souvenirs of the Wild West. The celebrity status of the James brothers (Frank and Jesse) inspired other families to emulate their exploits. The Younger brothers (Cole, Bob, Jim, and John) rode with the James brothers’ gang. The James-Younger careers began with their service with notorious Confederate bushwhacker and guerrilla William Quantrill, of Quantrill’s Raiders. Their careers extended from 1868 to 1882.

The Dalton brothers (Bob, Emmett, Bill, and Grant) were cousins of the Younger brothers and grew up near Coffeyville, KS. The Jameses and Youngers were local heroes. In 1890, the Daltons decided to form their own gang. They were the last great bandit gang of the west. They specialised in train robbing but did it chivalrously, refusing to take money from women. In February 1891, they were caught robbing the Southern Pacific Train #17 in Alilia, CA. After escaping from jail they recruited some of the toughest, meanest, most unscrupulous gun men in the west. They robbed trains and express offices in Oklahoma and the surrounding area. At Adair, they killed and wounded several people.

In October 1893, they decided to return to Coffeyville and do something the James-Youngers never had - rob two banks at the same time. But it didn’t work. Despite the fact that they were false beards, they were quickly recognised. Townspeople spread the word the Daltons were in town. The Daltons wound up fighting people they knew: their schoolteachers, shopkeepers, bank clerks, and lawmen. At one o’clock, Bob, an expert shot, killed a bank clerk who had gone for his gun, then, running down a street, he next killed two of his childhood boot makers. He then killed a cashier from the First National Bank who had been chasing him. Then the livery stable owner surprised Bob and killed him with a shotgun blast. Marshall Charles Connelly, once Bob’s and Grant’s schoolteacher, killed Grant. Powell (alias Tim Evans) and Broadwell (alias Texas Jack) were killed by a volley fired by a group of men who had armed themselves at the town’s hardware store. Emmett was wounded in the same volley. He had been shot twenty times, but miraculously survived. Bill Dalton was killed with the Dollin gang in 1895. Emmett, released from prison in 1907, became a consultant in Hollywood and appeared in feature filmed. He died in 1937.
