great casts

That thing where Networks air an amazing show with a great, inclusive, representative cast, only to offer it no promotion, no exposure, but then blame its cancellation on lack of viewership and high cost.

Like gee, I wonder why ya’ll aren’t making your money back or attracting audiences. Let people know the show exists, perhaps?

you know what i love about my dirk gently ships? i love the character dynamics so much no matter whether they’re romantic or platonic. literally i just ship the characters in every way possible and even though i have a bias towards writing romance in my stories i would equally sell my soul just to see them all best friends forever. brotzly? could be hella gay, could also be a beautiful example of soft and emotionally validating male friendship. faranda? badass adorable gfs or badass adorable bffs, both good! bart and ken? either the cutest (and weirdest) damn couple in the universe or the beautiful hilarious pure male/female friendship we’ve all been waiting for. amanda and the rowdy 3? either wholesome polyamorous goodness or wholesome found family goodness. there are no wrong ways to ship anyone!!! beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When you’ve got all these harmonies for A Chorus Line you should be working on but it’s Saturday and you want to make comet memes instead

Congratulations to Being 17, for being the first quality art film I’ve successfully watched in like four years of gross, joy-killing depression, and also for being all of the things I like: gay, French, post-New Wave, naturalistic, and gorgeous (with sparse dialogue!). 

You can enjoy it even if you’re not as pretentious as I am – if teenage boys who don’t understand their feelings punching each other because they want to kiss, and then eventually kissing, sounds like your thing. It’s got a warm and optimistic view of the world, well-rendered characters, and a cast with great chemistry. Also, one of the leads is non-white, and there are always extra points for QPOC. 

Thanks André Téchiné, for giving me back something I haven’t had in a long, long time. 

anonymous asked:

The thing with the Nightwing casting call is that he's canonically Romani, so the character isn't white. They're taking one of the little bits of representation Rom folk have.

I keep forgetting about that for some reason. Good point. I think that it would be great if they cast a Romani actor. However, how many are there? Especially in America?

Crystal Kingdom - Full Edit

Pulled from my home inside a cloud,
Lost to the dark I drift alone,
Now I’ve returned beyond the shroud,
Ever to reign upon my throne,
Here in my Crystal Kingdom.

I saw beyond the omniverse,
Far past the places we should see,
But for my vision I was cursed,
Torn from my home and family,
Lost to my Crystal Kingdom.

Saved from the darkness by my child,
Locked in a cage of glass and steel,
But my true love remains in exile,
Beckoning me to break the seal,
Into this Crystal Kingdom.

Kept from our children, lovers, friends,
Subject to laws we did not make,
This is where separation ends,
And souls of the lost will come awake,
Enter this Crystal Kingdom.

GO FOR IT!!! you don’t have to sound like a broadway recording! your still learning! your not perfect! and the people in the cast album aren’t either!! they don’t sound like the cast recording either!!!!!!! be nice to yourself!!! your doing fine! you’ll get to where u wanna be!!!!!!!!
