So I saw the Live-Action BATB. I was pleasantly surprised. Some of Watson’s singing was meh, but she wasn’t nearly as bad as people made it out to be - Be Our Guest was pretty good. But I absolutely loved Dan Stevens as Beast, who knocked it out of the park with his singing. Luke Evans as Gaston was great too, and LeFou was entertaining and had a decent ending. The dress also didn’t seem anywhere near the abomination the haters seem to think we should be required to view it as.
In any case, I found it enjoyable, and a good expansion that added some neat things to the story, and in my opinion didn’t really do anything to harm it. And of course most of the people I see hating on it are Disney Elitists who have a raging hatred of any kind of remake in the first place. May the movie make tons at the box office, and I hope Disney keeps making more and more of these remakes, and that the Elitists continue to rage and shit their pants at media they personally don’t like existing until they finally just give up. Remember, anything that makes elitists, purists, and gatekeepers unhappy is by that merit alone Good and Holy.
flea markets are great, but i can tell you from experience, i grew up in north carolina and i live in new jersey now and there is NOTHING like a southern yard sale. you can just get up early satruday morning and drive around town and find yard sales and you’ll find some good stuff. i’ve bought entire bins of ponies and toys for cheap cheap cheap after kids outgrew their toys and didnt want them anymore!
Ohhh, I wish I lived where garage sales were common! I live in a small town in central Missouri (don’t come here it’s awful) and it’s really hard to actually get any attention towards your garage sale. It’s actually so bad, that my town has instated a city-wide garage sale! It’s usually on my birthday, so I’ve only ever gotten to go once, and we got a really late start because my mom lollygagged until all the good garage sales closed up. :c
Some things I found in Fury Road that were rather neat.
See that symbol they used in Fury Road? It represents V8, as in, the mighty V8 engines used in most high-powered cars, and was a salute to honour the reason these War Boys and other fighters serve under Immortan Joe. Eight fingers, positioned in a ‘V’ formation.
You might also think Nux was a bit of a loony, a nut-case, fervent and dangerously obsessed with finding his Valhalla. In a way, he was. “Nux” is Latin for ‘nut’. :)
He’s also a mechanic of sorts, and the raised white pattern on his chest is a scarified image of a car’s engine block.
Half of the reason he has Max strapped to the front of his 1932 Ford coupe, is because they are still joined by a chain and blood transfusion tube. The sheer terror experienced by Max floods his blood with adrenaline, which Nux literally absorbs to improve his own elation and fuel his maniacal drive to complete his mission, seemingly fearlessly.
Coma the Doof Warrior? In the story, he was blind from birth, and in a society where capability meant survival, he found music as a way to show his worth, and worthy he is, as Immortan Joe’s War Crier, where his job was to send out the music to rally the troops in battle. You may wonder about his brown, tied-back mask… what he’s wearing is the tanned skin of his mother’s head.
One of the (many) neat things I found during my visit to Japan were these gashapon (vending machine toy) figures based on famous cryptozoological beasts. From left to right: the chupacabra, a yeti, a tsuchinoko and Nessie.
There’s also a kappa that completes the set but I couldn’t find a loose one for sale anywhere.
Hello. I’m Bethany Joy Lenz, it’s nice to meet everyone who answers this. Haha. Let’s add something cool to this. I went shopping today and found a couple neat things. Such as a cute sweater and a pair of Snoopy socks. ….maybe that’s not so cool. I’m 34 years old with Snoopy socks. Oops.
