5. Cropsey (2009)

6. The Bridge (2006)

This film covers the depressing truth about the Golden Gate Bridge, capturing a large number of suicides during the documentary.The film also features interviews with family and friends of some of the identified people who had thrown themselves from the bridge that year. The Golden Gate Bridge, which first opened in May 1937, was the most popular suicide site in the world during the documentary’s filming, with approximately 1,200 deaths by 2003

7. There’s Something Wrong With Aunt Diane (2011)

This documentary discusses the traffic collision that occurred on July 26, 2009,  where eight people were killed when a minivan driven by 36-year-old Diane Schuler, after traveling 1.7 miles in the wrong direction on the parkway, collided head-on with an oncoming SUV. The deaths included Schuler, her daughter and three nieces, and the three passengers in the SUV. The crash was the worst fatal motor vehicle accident to occur in Westchester County, New York

8. Capturing the Friedmans (2003)

This film focuses on the 1980s investigation of Arnold Friedman and his son Jesse for child molestation of several of their students. They held computer classes in their home where many children attended. During police interviews, some of the children that the Friedman’s taught reported experiencing bizarre sex games during their computer classes. Arnold Friedman committed suicide in prison in 1995, leaving a $250,000 life insurance benefit to his son. Jesse Friedman was released from New York’s Clinton Correctional Facility in 2001 after serving 13 years of his sentence.

9. Night & Fog (1955)

This documentary depicts the cruel reality of the Nazi Concentration camps. The film features footage from the liberation of camps in 1945 where malnourished humans are seen emerging out of the camps, voicing the life left in their lungs on to the camera.

10. Brothers Keeper (1992)

This documentary follows the case of Delbert Ward, an illiterate 59-year-old dairy farmer who was accused of murdering his brother Bill, in the bed that they shared for 50 years. The Ward brothers were four bachelors ranging between 59-71 and living in extreme poverty. One theory suggests that the slain brother, Bill, suffered the consequence of a sexual act gone wrong. What’s more disturbing is the fact that he was later acquitted of the crime after it was found out that the New York State Police coerced a confession out of him as he was illiterate.

Don’t be afraid to add to this list

“I´ll begin at the beginnin´. A fine, soft day in the spring it was when the train pulled into Castletown, three hours late as usual, and himself got out. He didn´t have the look of an American tourist at all about him, not a camera on him and, what was worst, not even a fishing-rod.”

A Series of Unfortunate Events Renewal Extended Through Season 3 at Netflix
Lemony Snicket is not going to be happy about this. Less than a month after Netflix announced a Season 2 pickup for A Series of Unfortunate Events, TVLine has learned exclusively that the streamer …
By Michael Ausiello

We tried to stop it, but it appears it’s going to keep going.

We’re locked in, now. And so the story goes until the tragic story of both Quagmire triplets… through to the riotous mob and misleading newspaper headlines… covering the literally and metaphorically chilling abduction of one Baudelaire… all moving towards the very worst fire of them all.

Netflix used to be such a happy site…

I don’t get people who try counter the BLM movement with the “look, I’m not racist, I have black friends” line.

If you have black friends then

WHY 👏🏻 AREN’T 👏🏼 YOU 👏🏽 FUCKING 👏🏾 WORRIED 👏🏿 ABOUT 👏🏿 YOUR 👏🏾 FRIENDS 👏🏽

I live in fear for my black friends.

I worry that my black Jewish friends will be stopped by the cops guarding our synagogues because they don’t “look Jewish” enough

I worry that two of my friends who are both black men in interracial marriages with biracial sons will be suspected of kidnapping their own children because their little boys have fairer complexions

I worry that my friends in STEM will be stopped by campus police on suspicion of breaking into the labs in which they are PhD students and lab managers

I worry that my friend who is an AD for various films and TV shows will get pulled over when she’s on a location shoot somewhere rural and get assaulted

I worry that the black librarians I work with won’t make it home if they run an evening program or work a late shift on the desk one night

Like, forget political ideology for a minute. If you aren’t worried about your black friends being victimized by police brutality then YOU ARE A BAD FUCKING FRIEND.

From a friend:

So my friend is trying to find movies for her 6 year old daughter that star girls, preferably outside the Disney canon. Trying to think of things I watched a kid … and realizing most of them starred boys. Here is what I have so far. Can you guys think of anything else?

The Secret of Nimh
The Last Unicorn
Labyrinth
Various Miyazaki films (My neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s delivery service, etc) 

Anyone have any recs for good movies, animated or not, that feature girls in the lead? Especially movies that might be suitable for a younger audience.

Please REBLOG with your answer!

“Thomas the Apostle. When Jesus wanted to return to Judea, knowing that he would probably be murdered there, Thomas said to the others, "Let us also go, that we might die with him.” But Thomas was not remembered for this bravery. His claim to fame came later… when he refused to acknowledge the resurrection. He just couldn’t wrap his mind around it. The story goes… that he needed to touch Jesus’ wounds to be convinced.“ — “So was he?”  ”Of course he was. We’re all convinced sooner or later, Jack.”

A/N: This is written for @jalove-wecallhimdean’s “Do it like Dean” Challenge. My prompt was ”He’s just a cheap trick…like a little slut!” - It is still in the exact words but they are slurred a bit because someone is drunk. Hope that it okay :D Thanks for letting me participate. This was fun :D

Thanks to my boo @chaos-and-the-calm67 for helping me come up with this idea, and thanks to my Sam to my Dean @blacktithe7 for betaing it for me and helping me make Jensen sound drunk. You girls rock!

***My fics are not to be saved nor posted on any other sites without my express written permission.***

It wasn’t unusual for Jensen and some of the cast members to go out on Friday nights after a full week of filming, especially not if noone were planning on flying home that weekend. Those Friday nights were as amazingly fun for Jensen some days as they were torturous other times. Tonight was one of the later.

Jensen downed yet another shot of whiskey, signaling to the bartender to keep them coming. Jensen felt his temper boil inside of him with each wave of heat the strong liquid sent through his abdomen. This was unusual. Drinking never used to affect his temper before. If anything, Jensen was a very loving drunk. He was sure he would have been tonight too if it wasn’t for Mr. Bigshot putting his greasy paws all over Y/N as she danced with him.

Jensen didn’t know the guy, but he also didn’t have to to know he was a first class asshole. Jensen couldn’t believe she couldn’t see that. He couldn’t believe she let him touch her like that.
