damn documentaries

His attitude towards gay rights as an actor, people like that he would do what he could to support them. Although sexuality for him wasn’t an issue, he knew that it was a big issue and there was a lot of discrimination within film, within every walk of life which he thought it was just ridiculous.
The fan letters that I would show to him, especially the ones to do with ‘Idaho’ from people that came out were just very touching, and really emotional. River was very touched by the fans, quite moved.
For ones I remember was just saying, 'Thank you. I’ve come out, It wasn’t as hard as I thought and you gave me the confidence to do that. And my life has changed, thank you.’

Here’s a damn good little documentary by Michael Saba about everyone’s favorite throwback genre.

If you’re into synthwave I’d definitely recommend giving it a watch

“Man, I’m so bummed out I don’t even feel like battling today. I already passed on sailing with my big bro, but damn, that documentary last night was sure as hell effective if it aimed at breaking my heart.”

“Can I ask more about the documentary?”

“It’s about this new species of Pokémon discovered in Alola called Mimikyu. It’s this half-Ghost, half-Fairy type that no one’s actually seen the real form of because it always has a disguise. And its most common disguise is that of a Pikachu because it wants to be loved just like one. I mean, come on, how freaking heartbreaking is that?

“The worst part is how it hits so close to home. I’ve battled so many trainers who act like Steven Stone or Wallace or some other amazing trainer just so they could feel stronger, or as a way to convince themselves that they could defeat me. And that goes for me, too. After losing to Brawly so many times I figured I had to imitate his style more so I could improve in battle. And knowing that there’s a Pokémon out there who feels the same way I do…

“Man, I’ve bummed myself out even more. Sorry to be a downer, kid. But don’t blame Mimikyu, you hear? The documentary made me want to catch one for myself. I’m gonna love it so much that it’s never gonna feel lonely again.”

A FEW WAYS OF HOW I LEARNED TO LOVE MYSELF…
🌻Once a week I take myself on a date (Cinama, eating out, park, museum etccc)
🌻To love my face and body for how it is, that there no one in the world who looks like me. I’m special.
🌻I learned to self pleasure myself and to never rely on a guy for orgasums.
🌻To enjoy my own company and that great minds think alone.
🌻To NOT follow my heart or brain but to ALWAYS follow my gut feeling!!
🌻 Start my days with poetry in bed, green tea, mangos, an orgasum, and happy music to start my day with a positive vibe
🌻 Treat myself goooood.. E.g Buy myself gifts like flowers, socks, poetry books and sexy underwear that even though no one gets to see but makes me feel  so god damn fineee.
🌻 watch documentaries and Ted Talks and be open to everything. Makes me feel sooo good when I learn new things and my brain feels like it’s been watered!!

WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FIND ANIMAL DOCUMENTARIES ON THE TELEVISION ANYMORE LIKE WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO ANIMAL PLANET NOW ALL IT IS IS A BUNCH OF WEIRD GUYS BUILDING TREE HOUSES AND FISH TANKS, IT’S PRACTICALLY A REALITY CHANNEL AT THIS POINT. I WANT MY FUCKING DOCUMENTARIES GOD DAMN IT

Enough of this Tut debate already!

As a black female I find it offensive when Hollywood whitewashes history. As a black female I find it just as offensive when blacks decide to black wash history. 

1. Look at the tomb paintings of ancient Egypt and they came in all colors from black to the light olive common to the Mediterranean. There were not all black as the ace of spades.

2. Tut is not a damned documentary; it is a historical drama. It is not meant to be taken as historical fact but entertainment. 

3. I have seen  this complaint about Tut not being black all over the place and I have yet to see anyone with a freaking degree in genetics making the claim. In other words; I can’t find the complaint being made by anyone with the academic credentials to do so. If someone has; please point it out to me.

Tut was a theatrical production and the role was given to the actor they felt best capable of handling the role and it happened to be Avan Jogia who is a person of color. If all of these complainers were truly interested in historical accuracy; they would be raising hell about the Mittani (Syrians) looking like they were indigenous to southern Africa with those weaves done with obviously European hair,

that one part in the making of tatinof when dan and phil are sat in an empty diner mapping out the tour, and phil goes: ‘i didnt know chicago was on the sea’ dan: 'that’s a lake phil’ - and then they both make that noise at each other that i’ve noticed they do a lot sometimes ? what is this inside joke ? i feel so excluded ? i cant believe i was third wheeling as i was watching their documentary,, damn
