“Joaq was always worried he wasn’t doing his best. He’s a great actor, but he was always trashing himself. It was the opposite of River. River would know when he did a scene well. If someone suggested that maybe he should have tried another approach, he’d debate it and say, ‘No, no, it was really good.’ You’d never say that to Joaquin or it would send him into a tailspin of self-criticism. In the end, both ended up doing good work, only one was confident, the other’s not”

- Gus Van Sant, The Face 1995

Hello, I just read your animal story about Gus the emu and let me tell you I work at a zoo and we have emus and you are a very brave person, emus are pretty much all assholes. (I still love them though lol.) Did I read it right that you just had an emu wandering around your house sitting on your couch?? Wow, you are amazing. I am totally aware that you are a very busy person so feel free to ignore me, but I would LOVE more of these stories!

Yeah, that was Gus.  Gus was, to put it mildly, a total asshole.  He’d been raised in an apartment as a “pet,” and he had too many “I am the boss of people, I want to hang out on the furniture” traits to really re-acclimatize to being a normal emu.  So he got bounced from foster home to foster home until he wound up at the emu farm and was eaten for being a jerkzilla.

Don’t be a jerkzilla.  People will eat you.

This wasn’t a request or anything, but I wanted to translate this one just out of personal preference. It’s really cute, good Kiibouma at its finest. Scenes like this one are a big part of why I really do like their interaction together.

I took the time to icon this one, this time around. Hope you all enjoy! Thanks to @shinjiroaragaki for the icons as usual!

I’m gonna keep posting about this in case anyone hasn’t heard. When We Rise is a 4 part miniseries airing on the 27th chronicling the fight for LGBT rights in the U.S. Here’s a link to the trailer! From what I’ve seen and read they actually are including important moments from our collective history that are overlooked, like the Lavender Menace protest, the fact that some members of Act Up were opposed to the AIDS quilt, etc. Also it was created & written by Dustin Lance Black and two of the directors who worked on this project are Gus van Sant & Dee Rees (the black lesbian director of Pariah). Part 1 airs on abc, February 27th at 9pm EST.

My favourite tidbits from Live with Kelly on 9 February 2017:

- he called Julian Edelman a “dreamcrasher” for the New England Patriots defeating the Seattle Seahawks

- the Walker Stalker Cruise was a crazy experience for him, being “trapped on a boat with 3,000 fans” and since the fans were not separated by walls or tables, Jeff “got goosed probably 3,000 times” (he was laughing about it, but guys, I mean, seriously, WTF?)

- he took Gus with him on the the Walker Stalker Cruise and Hilarie’s dad was with him while Jeff was working

- Gus really wanted to do zombie make-up, Jeff was at an autograph session (or as he put it at a “goosing session”) and got an emergency call on the ship phone because when Gus looked in the mirror to check the make-up, it was so scary that he fainted (poor baby)

- Gus loves Norman and “as soon as my kid like sees him, that’s it, it’s like a little duckling following the mama duck around” (awww…)

- at night a floor of the ship was reserved for the stars so that they could have a little privacy

- Jeff compared the Walker Stalker Cruise panel the first night to “MTV Spring Break” with most fans screaming “I love you” instead of asking questions (no wonder he was impressed with the fans’ drinking skills)

- he still has their Christmas tree up at their house because he “was out of town” (but Hilarie is probably very disappointed with him because of this and is taking it down now since she has just returned from LA shooting Lethal Weapon)

- when they pulled out the “snow guns” for the Winter Lip Sync game, since “they needed more snow”, Jeff pointed at his gun saying “I’ve got 4 to 6 inches right here for you” and after a set of giggles added “I mean 10 to 12″ (precious dork)

- he saw The Lego Batman Movie with Gus the other night and thought that it was the greatest movie they had ever seen

+1: although I love seeing Jeffrey in black (he is hot as hell in black), I would looove to see him wear other colors too!

P.S.: Dear ABC, can you please stop shrinking the screen ratio because of snow alerts next time Jeff is on Live with Kelly, thanks!

Sincerely, JDM fans who like to watch and GIF him in 16:9 ratio

anonymous asked:

Shane finding out the farmer he had a crush on who he thought was a girl is actually a transguy and still being okay with it?

Shane walked into the saloon, looking around. It was Friday, and the place was starting to get full. He looked at the guests, looking for one specific person. They’d never spoken, but he was gonna try and make a move tonight. If he could work up the nerve.

Shane walked up to Gus, who already had his pint waiting for him.

“Here ya go.“

“Thanks. Do you know if… shit, what’s her name… is gonna be here tonight?“

Gus raised an eyebrow. “Who?”

“She moved here recently.“

“… The most recent person would be Leah.“

“No! In the past year.“ Shane was getting frustrated.

“…. The Farmer?“ Gus asked.

“Yeah!“

“Oh. The Farmer’s a man, Shane. Harvey’s helping him with his transition.“

Shane paused for a second. “Oh. Well then. Wait, does that mean he’ll be here tonight?”

“Nope. Spending the night mining.“

“Dammit!“

A Comparative Commentary on Love O2O
微微一笑很倾城: the Canon, Drama, and Movie

I may not be your biggest fan of the franchise, but I’ve been wanting to finish off this overdue commentary which have been sitting in the drafts for months… This is a comparative commentary of the two live action adaptations, with knowledge of the novel as a basis. (I have read the book first, watched the drama, then the movie.)

Disclaimer: This commentary is fundamentally still coming from my own perspective and opinions. Differing opinions are welcomed but be nice!

TL;DR:

The drama and movie have different focuses, each with their own strengths and flaws.

The drama worked better as a live action/lighthearted romcom, while the movie better as an adaptation.

[spoilers and long post ahead]

The Signs as Gus Fring quotes:
  • Aries: Well? Get back to work.
  • Taurus: When you have children, you always have family. They will always be your priority. Your responsibility.
  • Gemini: I hide in plain sight, same as you.
  • Cancer: Some worthless junkie. For him, you intervene and put us all at risk? Some contemptible junkie who couldn't keep the peace for eight hours?
  • Leo: A crippled little rata. What a reputation to leave behind.
  • Virgo: I'm sure they'll be fine. I am told that the assassin that survived is gravely injured. It's doubtful that he'll live. Now, thank me and shake my hand.
  • Libra: Are you seeing bright lights or hearing voices?
  • Scorpio: There will be an appropriate response.
  • Sagittarius: I'm sure if you keep digging you'll find me.
  • Capricorn: No. Clearly you are not. No rational person would do as you have done. Explain yourself.
  • Aquarius: I like to think I see things in people.
  • Pisces: I don't believe fear to be an effective motivator.

Drabble challenge: #86 “Am I scaring you?”


Happiness washed over your body just as you slipped into the shirt of your new uniform; for your new job – at the Philadelphia Zoo.

The fabric was thick and dark-green; crested with the Zoo logo and your name tag. It filled you with an odd pride as you surveyed yourself in the mirror with your full gear on. You even received your own walkie-talkie as soon as you were introduced to your first task by your supervisor.

You were assigned to the African Plains area. Your main job was to take care of Tony, the southern white rhino, the family of giraffes; Gus, Stella and Abigail and the two hippos, Cindy and Unna.

You loved working with these gentle souls, but hoped you would be transferred to the Big Cat Falls someday. You loved exotic felines; especially lions and snow leopards.

The new job was truly a blessing and you liked all your co-workers, except –

The first time you had noticed him, you were feeding Tony, the rhino. It was a sunny day and there weren’t that many guests around. He was just standing at the fence, watching you, while you were in the enclosure, handing a few treats to the huge animal.

After that you kept noticing him around. He always kept his distance, although there were times when he seemed different; outgoing and cheery, with a permanent smile on his face. Then again there were times where he just looked tired and gloomy. He made you curious and you had even considered whether to go and talk to him, but somehow something always managed to intervene before you could act on it.

Until one day, when you were sitting on a bench in your lunch break; in front of the Bird Valley building, because you loved all the noises and birdcalls coming out and surrounding it.

“Hey”

You jumped, slightly startled as he seemingly appeared out of nowhere. “Uh, I think we haven’t been introduced to each other yet. I’m Barry.” He wore a friendly smile on his lips as he offered his hand to you.

Your eyes snapped to his name tag which clearly read Kevin, instead of Barry. You tried to hide your confusion and covered it with a sweet smile instead. You thought about asking him why his name tag read a different name, but you didn’t.

“I’m (Y/N).”, you said as you shook his hand.


“Uh, Mrs. Vaughn?” You walked up to your supervisor as soon as you found her at the main office, the next day after meeting Kevin, or Barry. Mrs. Vaughn looked up from her clipboard and nodded as a greeting when you approached her. “How can I help you, (Y/N)?”

You hesitated for a moment, not sure how to address the issue. “Uh, I – err, it’s about –“ You stopped mid-sentence and took a deep breath, gathering your thought as your supervisor looked at you in confusion. “It’s about Kevin. I think he’s a maintenance worker, and”

“(Y/N)”, Mrs. Vaughn cut you off, her face stern. “I think we should continue talking in my office.”

You quickly found yourself in your supervisor’s office and you soon asked yourself if you had made the right decision. “So –“, she started as she sat down in the chair at her desk across from you. “Kevin is a good and valuable member of our team, and he has been for several years now.”

“And I’m not claiming anything else Mrs. Vaughn, but he introduced himself as Barry to me and I just want to know if he’s messing with me, or –“

“Yes” She let out a deep sigh. “That’s what I’m getting at. Kevin suffers from something called DID, or formerly known as split personality disorder.”


After a long talk with your supervisor, you left the main office enlightened and curious. For what Mrs. Vaughn had told you about Kevin, he was not weird nor dangerous; things that were often shown in movies and books. You didn’t feel threatened by him at all, but the first meeting with him had been, in fact, odd. At least for someone who didn’t know about his disorder.


You were minding your own business as you walked out of the building, and you were deep in your thoughts, when you suddenly bumped into someone. “Oh shoot”, you muttered under your breath just when you realized who you had bumped into.

“Am I scaring you?”, he asked cautiously. His voice was soft and full of insecurity, even though he tried to let it sound like a joke, – and to you, it sounded as if you were actually the one scaring him.

“N-no.”, you stammered and cleared your throat awkwardly. “Uh –“

“I’m Kevin.”, he quickly introduced himself. “I’ve seen you around, but I’ve never had the chance to – to introduce myself it seems.”

“Hm”, you hummed and nodded. Now you understood what Mrs. Vaughn had meant when she told you about Kevin possibly forgetting – things.

You smiled at him. “I’m (Y/N).”

Essays in Existentialism: Stud IV

more stud lexa????? totally my fav.

Previously on Stud

The first hint of the autumn chill was a glorious kind of magic. It rattled its way through the streets on rickety wheels, making leaves chatter on leaves and making ships creak in the harbour. It climbed its way up buildings, leavings the fingerprints of the impending winter on the glass. The first chill was a defiant, fierce little thing, that was known to only a few who braved the early hour as the sun began to wake in this half of the world. Their breaths all became clouds, drifting along aimlessly as their throats tightened against the cold. But, like the first line of soldiers, the first hint of the end of summer was bombarded and dispatched with little effort by the day once the sun rose and attempted to hide any evidence of the bodies.
