Kingsman: The Golden Circle

I still prefer the first movie but this one is not as bad as some people have been saying. It has it’s nice moments.

I’m not particularly fond of Tilde and the oversexualized jokes are a bit too much on this. And oh boy… if you got offended by the “joke” at the end of the first movie, prepare for a mention, a somewhat of a repeat and something even worse.

I don’t love Poppy but Julianne Moore being her helps. The other new addictions are OK and the Statesman are not as silly as the trailers make it seems. I liked the Elton John scenes.

Now that we are at the bottom of the post I can talk about more spolery thinks: 1) I understand that we needed the Skyfall-esque destruction of the organization, but did we need to kill JB AND Roxy at the beginning and then Merlin before the finale? (PS: Still have hope that he survived that explosion somehow). 2) I’m almost buying the Kingsman x Adidas sneaker 3) I think someone has said something similar before, but now that Eggsy has married into the royal family, we need to meet the Swedish version of the Kingsman, played by every Skarsgård in existence + Alicia Vikander and/or Noomi Rapace, in the 3rd movie.

Suicide Forest / Brennen Taylor

Anonymous said: Brennen imagine where you go to like suicide forest with them

Author’s Note: I almost didn’t want to write this because of the heavy subject matter, but I censored it a whole bunch, so all of their findings were taken out- except for the deer bones in the beginning. If you ever need to talk, either my DM’s are open or here is a suicide prevention hotline number: 1-800-273-8255

You had been invited to join TFIL (Elton, Jay, Brennen and Colby) in Japan. It was an opportunity you just couldn’t pass up. Brennen was your boyfriend of two years and Colby was one of your best friends. Brennen had actually introduced you to Colby, who introduced you both to Elton and Jay. You were in for a long ride, being the only girl and all. Brennen already had plans to get you and Colby both drunk on the trip, considering you were both underage.

On the last days of the trip, Elton told everyone that we were all going to Suicide Forest. Everyone ‘forgot’ to mention it to you, considering you might have chickened out of even coming to Japan.

You got there on the day before your flight back home. The first thing you all noticed, was a creepy looking van sitting in the parking lot. It looked like it had been there for a while and had been parked to hide from cameras that are in the parking lot. You all enter the forest and walk a ways, just trying to get to the restricted part of the forest.

On the way into the woods, you walk behind Colby and in front of Brennen.

“Yo.” Colby says, making you stop walking and Brennen to come up next to you.

“What?” Elton asks, walking past you and Brennen.

“Are these bones?” Colby ask, shining his wrist flashlight at the ground. You take a step closer to Brennen as they check out the bones. “Yo. Oh my god.” Colby says, taking a step back.

“That’s a fucking skull, bro!” Brennen says, taking a step closer, shining his light on the bones on the forest ground.

“Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god.” Elton says, freaking out, which makes you want to cry. Elton being the one to never freak out over things make it known that it was going to be a long night. “Those ar- fuckin- bones. Those are bones.” Elton stutters.

“Dude. Dude. D-dude. Dude.” Colby says, “Those are all bones.” Jay and you stay quiet standing behind the three.“

"Holy fuck.” Brennen says, taking a step back to you, grabbing your hand when he sees the spooked look on your face. “I don’t like that at all.” Brennen says, wiping his face.

“Are they human?” You ask, not looking at the forest floor.

“Are they human?” Elton repeats, looking at Colby.

“I don’t know!” Colby says, moving forward to get a better look. “Yes- Oh wait. No, no, no. It’s not a human. It’s not a human!” Colby says, pointing down at the bones. “Oh my god, what is that?” Colby asks.

“It’s a deer.” Elton realizes. Brennen and you walk forward, he still holds your hand tightly. He kicks the skull, to see the shape of the head, making sure it’s not human. “Something ate a deer, right here.” Elton points out.

“This is so freaking weird.” Brennen says.


After the flashlights glitching, finding a tent, walking down near it, and potentially seeing a body, you were crying mess and you all were on your way back through the forest.

“Just need to go.” Jay says.

“Just stay together and let’s get out of here.” Elton says, looking at Brennen, who has his hand firmly gripped in yours.

“I wanted to leave earlier.” Jay says, on the verse of tears.

“So, what do we do now?” Colby asks. “Do we call someone?”

“Let’s just get out of here. Step one. Get out of here.” Elton says.

“It’s like an hour walk.” Brennen says, squeezing your hand.

“It’s seriously an hour out.” He sighs. “Then we will figure out who we call and let them handle it.”

“What happened to the ribbons?” You ask, noticing the one on a very noticeable tree was no longer there.

“The ribbons that were here, are no longer here.” Elton says, pointing the camera at the tree, you were looking at.

“I tied one on that.” Jay says.

“I know, that’s what Y/N is saying.” Elton says.

“Dude, can we please just walk or something.” Colby says, hitting his legs.

“Walk deeper?” Elton asks.

“I see a ribbon.” Brennen says, pointing at one tied to multiple branches.

“Really?” Elton asks.

“Yeah.” You confirm.


After a little more walking, you all manage to get back to the parking lot.

“There it is.” Elton says, pointing the camera at the sky.

“We made it, baby.” Brennen says, giving you a tight hug.

George Harrison, 1987

The following is an article from People, 19 October 1987, with some wonderful comments by George:

‘He’s 44 now, his stubble-beard shows flecks of gray, and after George Harrison laughs—which he does often—the wrinkles at the corners of his eyes don’t completely uncrinkle. “I think, in one way, it’s good getting old,” says Harrison. “When you do things when you’re young, you just don’t think about it. You’re crazy, like the Beatles. We were crazy, but if you went on being like that, you’d be put away. So there’s a time to mellow out.” He is mellow enough, nowadays, to view the past with a pleasant nostalgia and the future with bemused curiosity. “You know, we’re all going to be 60 now,” he says of the next major chronological hurdle facing his friends. “In another 20 years, I’m going to be 64"—a thought that sets him to singing, just under his breath, the chorus to the Beatles hit When I’m Sixty-Four.

When We’re Old | yacht rock for Kingsman‘s Harry Hart and Merlin [LISTEN]

Some of your dad’s favorite music for your favorite aging spy boyfriends, who spent half a lifetime infatuated before finally working up the maturity for rough, honest love.

“I Want Love,” Elton John

A man like me is dead in places/Other men feel liberated

“Desperado,” The Eagles

You better let somebody love you, before it’s too late

“I Saw the Light,” Todd Rundgren

But I tried to run/Though I knew it wouldn’t help me none/'Cause I couldn’t ever love no one/Or so I said

“Beginnings,” Chicago

When I’m with you, it doesn’t matter where we are/Or what we’re doing; I’m with you, that’s all that matters.

“Dancing in the Dark,” Bruce Springsteen

You sit around getting older/There’s a joke here somewhere and it’s on me

“Kiss On My List,” Hall & Oates

Sometimes I forget what I’m doing/I don’t forget what I want/Regret what I’ve done–regret you, I couldn’t go on

“Wasted on the Way,” Crosby, Stills & Nash

I am older now/I have more than what I wanted/But I wish that I had started long before I did

“Over My Head,” Fleetwood Mac

You can take me to paradise/And then again you can be cold as ice/I’m over my head/But it sure feels nice.

“Hold On My Heart,” Genesis

‘Cause there has never been a time/That I wanted something more

“God Only Knows,” The Beach Boys

I may not always love you/But long as there are stars above you/You never need to doubt it/I’ll make you so sure about it

“If This Is It,” Huey Lewis & the News

You’ve been thinking/And I’ve been drinking/We both know that it’s/Just not right

“Just the Two of Us,” Grover Washington, Jr., and Bill Withers

And, darling, when the morning comes/And I see the morning sun/I want to be the one with you

“Reminiscing,” Little River Band

I said to myself when we’re old/We’ll go dancing in the dark/Walking through the park/And reminiscing

“I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little,” Barry White

Give it up, ain’t no use/I couldn’t help myself if I wanted to/I’m hung up, no doubt/I’m so in love with you; for me there’s no way out

“The Way Young Lovers Do,” Van Morrison

Then we sat on our own star and dreamed of the way that we were/And the way that we were meant to be

“Hearts and Bones,” Paul Simon

You take two bodies and you twirl them into one/Their hearts and their bones/And they won’t come undone

At this point Andrew Davies has repeated so many times that there will be Absolutely No Songs in his version of Les Mis that I can only imagine, I have literally no option but to imagine, that it is all an elaborate joke and it will, in fact, be completely full of songs, basically a BBC version of that cheapo German knockoff that was called Barricade! or somesuch. 

I just have no choice when it comes to picturing everyone turning on their television sets, some time in late twenty seventeen, and being totally blindsided by six full hours of songs, probably scored by Elton John or something. It is not of my own free will that I come to flesh this thought out in more and more detail with each new interview rather than focusing on how clear and evident it is that we will see what Tholomyès’ face looks like in the throes of physical passion. You see instead I am simply compelled to think about all the non-disclosure agreements the actor/singers and the entire BBC orchestra will be compelled to sign, and the twitterstorm after the singing begins, and the weirded-out headlines in the Culture sections of newspapers, and the almost inevitable Christmas Number One that will ensue. Compelled! And that’s all there is to it.
