Les Mis Groupwatch presents: 

The Wind That Shakes The Barley

I have…. fuckèd up, my pals. My comrades. My fellow humans. I promised @vapaus-ystavyys-tasaarvo​ I would do a post about this midweek and I did not do a post about this because I am a total screwup who could not in fact organise a pissup in a brewery. But ANYWAY some people are coming regardless and! this is still happening later today. We’re watching The Wind That Shakes The Barley, which is about Irish independence fighters. Wow, that’s a really informative summary of the film. I’m blowing this one out of the gate. I’m hitting home runs here. It’s a good film. I am not a good groupwatch organiser or human. I’m going to let the director, Ken Loach, summarise the main themes in a quote I totally didn’t just steal from Wikipedia in a rush:

Every time a colony wants independence, the questions on the agenda are: a) how do you get the imperialists out, and b) what kind of society do you build? There are usually the bourgeois nationalists who say, ‘Let’s just change the flag and keep everything as it was.’ Then there are the revolutionaries who say, 'Let’s change the property laws.’ It’s always a critical moment.

I’ve been arguing that we should watch this for some time, but now seemed like a Good Moment because it will give a pretty good intro for those people who want to understand what the fuck is going on with British Politics rn and who the DUP are and why people are freaking out about the idea of them having a casting vote. It’s also a sensitive exploration of the difficulties involved in trying to create the new society you so desperately want. This is an upsetting but also Important film. Also the waistcoats are fucking sweet as. Look at the above picture. That’s some great hashtag transmasc aesthetic right there. 

Please join us to watch this film that I am not Marketing well. 

The essential stuff:

  • The date and time is Saturday June 24th at 4pm GMT WHICH IS 5PM UK TIME, AND ALSO TODAY. Daylight savings happened so note that the start time is in GMT and is different to the usual winter time. Please check what this is in your timezone if you’re not sure!
  • The film is just over 2 hours long and we will break in the middle
  • It is in English and we will have English captions/subtitles.
  • The meeting “place” is the group watch Slack team (Team Shoujo Cosette)
  • Contact me if you want to join in! Don’t contact vapaus, vapaus has enough nonsense to deal with without trying to hastily add people because I made the post too late. 

Group Watch FAQ is here if you have more questions (or you can just ask)

And as usual: EVERYBODY IS WELCOME!

Hey savior. Try to finish this sentence SOME-

Savior:Body once told me the world is gonna roll me
I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an “L” on her forehead
Well the years start coming and they don’t stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn’t make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
So much to do, so much to see
So what’s wrong with taking the back streets?
You’ll never know if you don’t go
You’ll never shine if you don’t glow
Hey now, you’re an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you’re a rock star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold
It’s a cool place and they say it gets colder
You’re bundled up now, wait till you get older
But the meteor men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture
The ice we skate is getting pretty thin
The water’s getting warm so you might as well swim
My world’s on fire, how about yours?
That’s the way I like it and I never get bored
Hey now, you’re an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you’re a rock star, get the show on, get paid
All that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold
Hey now, you’re an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you’re a rock star, get the show, on get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars
Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas?
I need to get myself away from this place
I said yep what a concept
I could use a little fuel myself
And we could all use a little change
Well, the years start coming and they don’t stop coming
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running
Didn’t make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb
So much to do, so much to see
So what’s wrong with taking the back streets?
You’ll never know if you don’t go (go!)
You’ll never shine if you don’t glow
Hey now, you’re an all-star, get your game on, go play
Hey now, you’re a rock star, get the show on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting stars break the mold

i understand. you found paradise in tumblr. you had some good posts, you made a good blog, the blacklist protected you and the tags were plentiful. you didn’t need a friend like me. but now you come to me and you say “outofcontextarthur, they’re not monkeys, muffy was a hippo”. but you don’t ask with respect. you don’t offer friendship. you don’t even think to call me godfather. instead, you come into my blog on the day my daughter is to be married and y

The million dollar question(s): How exactly did Kakashi react when he found Sakumo dead on the floor? Did he sit there in shock? Did he go get help? 

When did he finally let himself cry? Who let this child stay in the Hatake manor after Sakumo’s suicide?

I’M STILL ONLY IN ACT 2 SO PLEASE DON’T TALK ABOUT SHADOWS OF VALENTIA SPOILERS IN RESPONSES OR TAGS… But I recently read some tidbits about Act 6 that were about our favorite deadbeat dragon dad, and of course since they go against some of DE’s “canon”, I needed to create a stupid joke to get around it.

And here it is.
