i-should-read-it

Congrats if you got the reference. You watch funny movies.

I’ll be honest, it bugs me that Ortensia doesn’t have much of a personality from different Disney media she’s appeared in or that she doesn’t do much besides be in distress or be “Oswald’s girlfriend.” Of course, I could argue the same thing about Minnie Mouse, but that’s a subject for another day. Maybe I should read the Wasteland comics?

My point – I like to think that these two are inseparable (and insufferable) when they’re together, like a certain comic strip/tv/movie couple, but less creepy, cooky, mysterious and spooky. I mean, 420 kids don’t come from nowhere, do they? ;) It would also be different from Mickey and Minnie Mouse who have tons of cute moments in their relationship, but mostly just act mellow around each other because they’ve been together a long time and I guess we have to be realistic about our cartoon relationships?

Hi, I know that you watched every episodes of SH, can you elaborate on how Maggie's character grow through out the seasons? I saw a few scenes of her and Joel/Gavin, she's like a completely different character from all the scenes I've watch her with Sydney. She seems so much more mature and a sense of responsibility/calm toward the end compare to "wild and outgoing" feeling I got from watching those scenes with Joel? Since the series ending, I will slowly binge it :) Thanks!!

Maggie’s character growth from season one? A loaded question. I could stay in the show narrative, how they ultimately told her story and made it all fit together, or I could weave outside of it, because there was quite a bit going on behind the scenes that guided the direction Maggie’s character went in (Stacey Farber’s unavailability for season 4, the Lexa pledge which essentially manifested by rewriting Maggie’s season 5 arch and giving us Lintz endgame and a living Bree).

So, with that partially said, I’ll just say some things, and then probably lamely conclude.

The purpose of Maggie’s character, in the first two seasons especially, seemed to be sexual and comedic relief for the most part. She was this fun, sexual being to pair available men with. That said, her latent bisexuality still makes tons of sense for her character. I did not bat an eye when she went with the flow with Sydney in season 3. It seemed very organic. Her willingness to explore sexually with Sydney in the on call room was so true to Maggie’s sexuality too. Sex is something Maggie knows and is good for, despite Sydney being a new gender for her. Her eagerness to and responsiveness to Sydney was so in line with her character up to that point.

And it’s slightly interesting that they brought Sydney Katz in and told her story and developed her, using Maggie as the steady back drop for it, instead of focusing on Maggie and developing her directly. But ultimately Sydney helped Maggie professionally to become a better doctor and brought out a fascinating side of Maggie’s personality. It showed what a kind, patient, and caring person she could be. She connected deeply with Sydney in a way we never saw her connect with anyone else, friend or lover, not even Gavin.

They obviously were lost with Maggie in season four, and that was reflected in the character herself. She got that amazing two-episode arch where she was a ghost, and we could see that she was personally lost. She didn’t have much besides work to give her life meaning. We also got to see just how deep her feelings for Sydney really were in that arch. Despite the fact that Sydney was not in a place in her life to reciprocate, that longing and openness following her near death epiphany was a really rare and raw display from Maggie.

So basically that was a random assortment of thoughts. Season five Maggie obviously eventually found her place and her meaning within Sydney Katz. I think Maggie wanted love all along. She found that in Sydney ultimately. It wasn’t a professional story for her, it wasn’t a doctor story, it was her finding love and her purpose within that. Some people may not like that because women these days should aim for professional glory and not sacrifice that for their love life (or at least maintain both at all times), but we left Maggie in the middle of her story. There is still career development for her in the future as well as motherhood, I imagine.

I don’t even think the writers in season one imagined that this is how Maggie’s character would end up. I think they stumbled onto a beautiful story along the way and were brave enough to tell it for us, and for that I’m forever grateful!

I was looking for some videos on the Gulenist movement because I wanted to figure out what they were all about without actually reading and I found this.

It’s one of the most obnoxious videos I ever watched (which is why I’m bothering to share it with you) and I know less about Gulen than before actually watching it. It’s also, of course, incredibly biased and obviously made by someone with an agenda. I guess I should actually just read about these dudes instead of trawling youtube for videos that’ll explain it to me like I’m a fucking idiot baby.

Congressman Rod Blum in a Dubuque town hall (Monday) night asked, ‘Why should a 62-year-old man have to pay for maternity care?’ I ask, why should I pay for a bridge I don’t cross, a sidewalk I don’t walk on, a library book I don’t read? Why should I pay for a flower I won’t smell, a park I don’t visit or art I can’t appreciate? Why should I pay the salaries of politicians I didn’t vote for, a tax cut that doesn’t affect me or a loophole I can’t take advantage of?

School administrators didn’t want Marvin Wright to read his own speech. He did it anyway.

  • Marvin Wright, 2017 senior class president at SouthWest High School in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, had his diploma withheld for more than two full days, WRAL reported.
  • SouthWest Edgecombe allegedly withheld Wright’s diploma as retaliation for his graduation speech, the Wilson Times reported.
  • Wright reportedly worked for more than two weeks on his remarks but was asked at the last moment to not deliver his speech and instead deliver one prepared by school administrators. According to the Wilson Times, the administrator’s speech was just four sentences long.
  • “To be honest, the speech that they wrote wasn’t me at all,” Wright told the Wilson Times. “I feel like they tried to belittle me in a way because I had more to say. I feel like they couldn’t describe the ways that I felt and the things that I experienced.” 
  • “There were only four sentences and I was like, ‘I really worked hard on this speech and as senior class president, I think I should read my own speech,’ and they was like, ‘No, this is what you are going to read.’”
  • When Wright approached the podium, he pulled up his speech on his phone and delivered it his way. Read more (6/15/17)

What all instances of flirting, like I missed so many lmao

yOU ASKED SO I DELIVERED HERE U GO (AND I WAS EXTREMELY SELF-INDULGENT W SCREENSHOTS SO APOLOGIES FOR THIS POST BEING LONG AS F): 

  • :16 dan is acting out what they’re like in these bomb videos and immediately seizes the opportunity to playfully punch phil’s arm repeatedly. phil, for his part, just sits there and looks adorably bemused while dan is yelling. love it
  • :33 dan does some sort of sketchy fist gesture, phil immediately reacts to it even though it was generally benign, in a blatant subversion of their normal roles w making innuendos/sexual jokes. they both giggle
  • :47 phil goes into a whiny voice to say how he really wanted to do an exotic bomb and then hums the generic vlog music they always use. dan tries to look annoyed but just giggles some more
  • :56 dan’s like ‘so i reckon we need to actually beat more than one in this section’ and leans in all close to phil and phil’s like ‘alright! okay!’ in the flirtiest voice ever i wanna die
  • 1:16 ‘so I’m gonna bomb first, i think you should read first,’ says phil and the ensuing exchange where he’s just cheekily giggling while dan is acting all exasperated is just so cute … and uh, i can’t be the only one who thought there was a pretty blatant sexual undertone to phil saying ‘just tell me what to do. i’m your putty. mold me into whatever shape you want.’ … and dan’s eyes go momentarily wide while he says it. nice
  • 1:52 dan calling phil ‘felipe’ lmao what even
  • 5:32 when they’re epically failing and they’re about to lose, phil does his instinctual pat of dan’s arm to tell him they have fifteen seconds left and it’s cute
  • 5:50 the look they share immediately upon losing, before phil just breaks into giggles
  • 6:14 phil going ‘what is something that flops like more than anything else in the world’ with an utterly impassive poker face purely to wind dan up and see him laugh is one of the most simultaneously adorable, hilarious, and impressive things i have ever witnessed
  • 6:36 thIS WHOL E EXCHANGE w dan asking if phil thinks it’s his (dan’s) fault that they didn’t do well that round and saying ‘you can be honest’ with wide puppy eyes, and then phil saying yes, he thinks dan was pretty bad that time, and then dan trying to look shocked n appalled while still grinning:
  • and then screeching that phil is supposed to lie!!!!! and phil just consolingly being like ‘well you were flustered …’ like trying to be a bit reassuring,, honestly fucking end me, that was one of the cutest bits in this whole vid, they’re just so comfortable w each other and I’m dying
  • 9:33 onwards when dan is retaliating by telling phil he should be able to decode this morse code thing just bc he litro can’t let phil’s criticism go. he is a child. i love it
  • 9:53 when phil says it’s too hard, dan’s all ‘NO WE CAN DO THIS PHIL’ and slams his hands on the table and leans into phil’s space just to grab the manual and its all v cute
  • 10:27 ‘shut up rat’ omg i lost it at this. and then a few seconds later ‘shut up turd.’ dan is really top notch at verbally abusing his partner
  • 10:53 phil v abruptly shush-ing dan in order to cut off what was sure to be a long and hysteric rant about how unfair the last round was. i love how instinctual that was for phil, like he just knows dan’s about to go off and neither of them have time for it, and then dan immediately complies when phil tells him to shush hahah
  • 13:25ish during the really stressful new one that they didn’t really understand i noticed that they kept bumping arms until they just decided to keep their arms touching for basically the rest of the time until the bomb goes off and it struck me as maybe being a way for them to subtly kinda be like ‘we’re all right it’s all good’ and ground each other. cute
  • 14:04 the look they share AGAIN when they lose
  • and the whole exchange up until like 14:35 where they’re debriefing and just talking to each other, sort of forgetting the camera exists. I LOVED watching that even though the v obvious jumpcut suggests they cut a bunch of it out bc it was just dan walking phil through the instructions for the new module and phil just leans in all close and lets dan guide him and i loved their facial expressions during that part AHHH it was just so comfy n GOOD
  • 15:35 dan telling phil about the new module they’ve never done before by singing it, i felt like this was yet another example of him trying to keep the energy light and non-stressful so that phil would stay calm and it’s cute that these videos have so many instances of them trying to look out for each other like that (but then dan is actually kind of bad at this and spends a lot of time screaming when he’s doing the bomb and i cried laughing at the bit at 18:11 when he’s jst high pitched squealing for a few seconds)
  • 18:26 the looks they share!!! YET!!! AGAIN!!!!!!!!! when they lose!!!!! (partially obscured by the explosion effect lol):
  • 18:51 dan proudly proclaiming that they probs have above average communication skills when they’re not stressed or trying to be entertaining bc apparently they are unable to do one of these vids without mentioning or alluding to their psychic connection and best friend mind meld

ahhhh watching them work together in this game is the fucking best and they were just so happy in this one, it was so palpable and hilarious and fun to watch, as though all the fun they have together is actually contagious. i love them and this video series so fuckin much :((

(keep talking and no one explodes #3

So are you saying that Harry just goes around, lying to everyone?

harry is in the closet

harry is in the closet

  1. harry is in the closet

harry is in the closet

harry is in the closet

  • harry is in the closet

harry is in the closet

that means he CAN’T go around telling every single person he meets that he never dated taylor or kendall and that he’s lived with louis all over the world for seven years or any other number of things that would give away the fact that HE IS IN THE FUCKING CLOSET. that doesn’t make him a liar and that doesn’t mean he enjoys not being honest about who he is with the public (i think it’s really obvious that he’d LOVE to be honest about who he is with the public), but that’s just NOT HOW THE CLOSET WORKS.

i really don’t like that you’re acting like him being in the closet is him “[going] around lying to everyone.” that’s a really nasty way to look at it. educate yourself about how a shitlaod of celebrities have had to live at least part of their lives in the closet and had to deal with beards and misleading the public about certain things to ensure that they weren’t outed. the closet, especially the closet of a celebrity who has to deal with interviews and pap walks and all that stuff, actually isn’t a difficult concept to grasp unless you’re an ignorant asshole because a ton of celebrities have had to deal with it. it’s really not a revolutionary concept. and harry’s situation is even more complicated because his boyfriend is also a celebrity, is also closeted, and is suited up with a fake girlfriend and a fake baby to boot. so maybe you should like, i dunno, read up on the closet or something. and don’t act like protecting your closet or having your friends and family members help protect your closet is just you “lying” like it’s some dirty thing you do because you’re not in the mood to be honest. don’t blame the closeted person - instead, blame the society that made the closet necessary to protect the careers and lives of so many lgbtq+ people. 

My Favorite MLM Books

As a gay man, I really love gay books and here are some of my favorites:

  1. The Nightrunner Series by Lynn Flewelling; This is easily my favorite series I’ve ever read, and it consists of seven books and a short story collection. The story revolves around two spies, who are both bisexual (although the word does not exist in the universe in which it is set). It’s a fantasy setting that is incredibly fleshed out and, thus, feels very real. The two main characters begin as teacher and protege but, as the story progresses and they are on more equal footing, they become lovers. There is a large cast of multi-dimensional characters, a well-developed story, and lots of action and political intrigue.
  2. Bonds of Earth by G.N Chevalier; This one takes place right after WWI. The narrator is a gay man who fought in the war and was scarred by it. His life mostly revolves around sexual pleasure as a means to forget about his experiences. His uncle finds out that he’s gay and forces him to leave New York and his job in a bath house there. He becomes a gardener on an estate that houses a reclusive man, who was badly injured in the war. They do not get along to begin with, but with some coaxing from the housekeeper’s granddaughter, they are brought into each others’ orbits and are forced to work together. The narrator worked in a hospital helping wounded soldiers and he uses his experience to help the man who lives on the estate and their relationship progresses the longer they spend time together. The story is very sweet and shows the characters bettering each other.
  3. Immortal Quest by Alexandra MacKenzie; The story take place in modern-day London, but with the edition of secret immortal mages. A detective encounters a thief who claims to know the detective from the detective’s past lives. He also claims he’s an immortal mage who is 500 years-old. The mage asks for the detective’s assistance in helping him contain an evil mage who he’s accidentally released. The detective begrudgingly comes with and, slowly, recovers memories of his past lives. He’s been reincarnated many times and the mage has kept track of him through each life. He sometimes remembers his past lives and sometimes not. There is a lot of humor in this one–the mages are almost all stockbrokers, if I remember correctly, because they’re used to serving the rich and powerful, and have magic that is basically useless with modern technology. The characters are sarcastic and snarky but at the same time complement each other well.
  4. Malachite by Kirby Crow; This one takes place in a matriarchal world in a society that consists of only criminal and outcast men. (I was not so keen on the idea at first but I was convinced as I read it.) Being a society of all men, men have relationships with each other. The story is told from three men’s perspective, two of which are former gang members who were forced into their gang as children, and the other who is much younger and the son of the most powerful man in the city. The former gang members used to be lovers and together brought down the gang which they were once a part of. They have since parted ways but there are many hard feelings between them. One has worked his way up in society and is engaged to the son previously mentioned, and the other spends his days drinking and having sex and thinking about his previous lover. The character relations are really great and the world is captivating, plus there is a polyamorous relationship between three men. Also, Tris is one of my favorite characters from anything ever.
  5. The Fire’s Stone by Tanya Huff; Another fantasy novel that’s a pretty typical fantasy quest story. There are three main characters–a thief, a prince, and a wizard who happens to also be a princess. The prince and princess are betrothed but neither wants to be with the other. The three end up together by fate and go on a quest to retrieve the stone which was stolen from the prince’s kingdom and which is the only thing keeping the volcano in the city at bay. The story includes an asexual princess and two men who are attracted to men. There’s a decent amount of world-building, which I liked, and the story is very fast-paced.
