i am max and max is me

What the fuck. Someone grabbed Dan’s crotch while he was high fiving people last night at the L.A. NSP show and Dan laughed it off but woo boy that isn’t alright.

We’ve always been a mostly sane fandom of people but I’ve been to a ton of concerts and watched band members get clothes ripped and their belts taken off and stolen, and their dicks rubbed. Fuck, I even remember that a very young girl forced a kiss on a lead singer when he went to take a pic with her.

Please, please don’t let that start happening with Dan. Don’t ruin the NSP shows for other fans because you’re beinga creepy fuck. Dan shouldn’t have to laugh off or joke off being inappropriately touched.

  • person: why do you like mad max so much?
  • what i mean: there are no less than 14 women protagonists who all have agency and are narrators of their own stories and none of them exist as male wish fulfillment or as a side kick to a male character and they all have different personalities and purposes and their strengths and weaknesses are presented without making some statement about women being better or less than men but also they use their femininity in extremely powerful ways which demonstrates that women are different than men but no less valuable to the story and they are put on equal playing field with the men in the movie and are not sexualized or demeaned despite the fact that five of them are escaping sex slavery and the sexual violence against them is never shown and one of the messages of the movie is that even these women in positions of 'privilege' are still oppressed and are victims of male violence and entitlement which reminds me that another message of the movie is the destructive nature of toxic masculinity and even the good guys in the movie are not praised or unnecessarily affirmed by the women when they do good things but instead there is a sort of mutual trust and friendship built that is way more realistic and powerful and basically it passes every test associated with how women are treated in movies and also it's just a really damn good movie with amazing visuals and insane amounts of world building and beautiful cinematography and real messages about our world
  • what i say: there's a guy with a flame throwing guitar

Life Is Strange………… rekt me…….

@mardisoir and @just-french-me-up are being super wonderful, kind and encouraging and thus I have finally gotten round to making a Ravenclaw Jean Prouvaire
Also dedicated to my wonderful other half @montparnassee who has been a constant support system and is just an absolutely beautiful human being ❤︎

I know a lot of you head-cannon Jehan in Hufflepuff but I only have a Ravenclaw tie so I couldn’t do both ❤︎

Max Rockatansky: “I have lost my family and my best friend to the violence of the gangs that are overwhelming this nation. I can’t stay and keep being a cop because i’m going to hunt each one of their murderers down and kill them in revenge and it’s going to be horrible to the point i am not fit for society. I will then just drive into the desert. I have no plan past this.”

[does a violence. Many, many violence’s in fact.]

Max Rockatansky, like 5 years later: “I have acquired a dog. Things are looking up. In other news, there seems to have been a nuclear war, the government no longer exists, and the gangs have taken over. Also, i am running out of dog food.” [Plot appears, ends] “I have lost my dog, been through several crashes, been shot, several things are broken, and my car has exploded. Helped a colony of survivors escape gang planning to kill them. Can’t figure out why the fuck i did this when i could have left with the damn car. I miss my dog.”

Max Rockatansky, like 15 years later: “Ok, i have found and repaired another car. I got a dog. I–” [shit happens] “I am chasing down a motherfucker with a wagon. I will kill him. Need haircut.” [Plot Occurs] “Got lost in desert, group of feral children thought i was a god. told them no. Accidentally led a revolution. fuck if i know where they are now. left for dead in desert. got the hair cut. i fucking hate pilots.”

Max Rockatansky, like 10 years later: “I finally have been alone with my car. No one is bothering me. No one is around for miles. I can brood over my inadequacy. mm lizard. fuck is that.” [Things] “Alright m8 first of all” [Plot] “I want my car back. You know what, a car. gimme the car. why is it no– oh fuck really. fine road trip.” [All The Plot] “I am too old for these Revolutions. I’m going to go nap in the sun. be a fucking lizard. the girls can be all governmental. ff do i even have knees anymore. fuck”

“If I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die historic! On the Sagolii Road!”

you bet your ass i was gonna immediately make a mad max photoset once i got this top given the fact that i am obsessed with mad max

hello, it’s friday night and i have a reach for you:

mcdonald’s & coke, best buddies

mcdonald’s and coke have had a commercial partnership since 1955. i always knew that mcdonald’s only served coke (though never on a conscious level), and finally bothered to look up their connected history thanks to whatever theory this is trying to be. they’ve both been major players in brand globalization, and i think this is what the mcdonald’s sign in sana’s header is referring to.

i don’t think skam plays with product placement the way american shows do; they mention brands and shows and places the way real people would, prioritizing reality over indirect endorsements. so i thought it was…strange that we saw the mcdonald’s brand balloons featured so prominently. why these? why not plain balloons? and why did the logo get so much screen time?  

but then people pointed out that this was a reference to the balloon boys’ connection to even, because of where he tried to go in 3x08.

i wanted to believe those two small references were meant to bind the two squads together, but i was also able to brush them off as coincidences. mcdonald’s is pop culture, so you cannot erase its existence from a show dedicated to depicting teenagers in that context.

but then we got another reference, shortly after even confirms his connection to the rest of the balloon squad in 4x03.

(side note: i am glad that mcdonald’s is not a negative memory for either isak or even, that it’s still part of their lives and isak is actually quite excited about it)

(okay was that a side note or foreshadowing…?)

anyway, i could leave it at that, a solid connection between even and the balloon squad. but then today’s clip of the pepsi max gang at sana’s, with their ridiculously prominent placement of the drink they are supposedly not named after anymore, reminded me of the coke vs. pepsi war that is also a pop culture cornerstone. and where have we seen coke? hei briskeby.

this could be a coincidence too, they’re just boys, casually drinking preferred beverages while they’re having fun recording their videos. but at this point i am way too sensitive to branding and the small hints that julie leaves for us to let it slide.

we’re seeing the tensions ramp up with pepsi max, but i’m hoping, on the coca-cola side, we’re going to see a reunion. mcdonalds & coke, best buddies. those balloons were the first bridge back to even, and no matter the rough times coming, we’ll see more clues that will bring them together. if i see the balloon squad eating mcdonald’s or even taking a swig of coke, then i just might actually die.

oh my god did i just try to write a corporate marketing headcanon

1000 followers!!! thank you, lovely people, so much. 

when I started posting art 8 months ago, I never thought I would ever get here, I never thought I would meet such amazing admirable people here. because of all of you, I have been more confident with myself and every time any of you reblog, send me asks, tag me in posts, add me in fics or draw me I die of happiness  

Thank you all so much! I hope to keep making you happy with my art in the future!!

Max sitting with the Milking Mothers and they teach him how to knit.  He starts knitting for relaxation and makes random things.  

Furiosa finds a brightly colored cozy on the stick shift of her new war rig.  It’s so weird but so precious she can’t remove it.  

War pups with misshapen knit hats on.  

Big, tough, War Boys with little black knitted baggies tied to their belts.  

Max makes new fingerless gloves for Dag, in a really garish bright green yarn since she works with the plants.  She doesn’t really like them but wears them anyways because a gift carries the giver’s warm spirit in it.

Max leaves a light yellow pouch for Toast…she is confused but oddly delighted.  No one has ever given her a gift before.  

Capable requests a shawl and Max tries to make something somewhat “pretty”, so he asks his knitting mentor how to make something different, but he ends up making something that looks like an old fish net.  Capable still loves it because it’s unique.

The next try he nails it, perfect shawl, in Cheedo’s favorite colors.

He makes a few more for the Vuvalini and some of the younger girls at the Citadel.

He makes one more, out of dark blue and aqua-marine colored yarn with flecks of light green and tan.  He’d been saving this yarn for a while.  It reminds him of the ocean where his home used to be, but it also reminds him of his new home, where he is now.  He puts it away and insists he just made it to keep his hands busy, but everyone else knows why he made it.  Capable snatches it when he’s not around and leaves it for Furiosa, with a note that simply says, “from Max”.
