do you ever just get mad bc you’re spending your only teenage years feeling like you want to jump off a cliff while others are having the time of their lives, being in love, being good at things and you’re just kind of there
I’m quickly getting tired of the “You can like both La La Land AND Moonlight” discourse. If that’s your only contribution, please don’t offer it.
La La Land was continually built up tonight as a “risk” and “jumping off a cliff” and other such nonsense, when it’s a friggin old school musical about white people falling in love. It relied on nostalgia to sell itself, and anything that relies on people’s fondness for things they already love is inherently NOT a risk.
Moonlight is a drama about gay black masculinity, a topic so little covered in film that there was virtually no blueprint for it. THAT is a risk. That’s the kind of movie people usually aren’t eager to reward. That’s why Moonlight is such a brilliant piece of art.
Sure, you can like both La La Land and Moonlight, but pretending they’re on an equal playing field when it comes to awards and recognition is ludicrous.
I can’t be the only one who thinks “Your father would’ve been proud of you, Jyn” is the best RebelCaptain quote right? The fact that out of everything he could’ve told her before they both died, that’s the thing he chose to say. As they were waiting for their death on the beach, Cassian decided to tell her about the thing that mattered to her the most. Her father. He made sure that she knew that before she died. So Jyn became one with the Force feeling content because she knew her father was proud of her. Cassian helped making that happen.
So 2016’s latest victim is, get this, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, who was odds-on favourite to get a fourth term (fourth-term governments are VERY RARE in New Zealand politics), and has suddenly announced he’s resigning next week without any other notice. The election isn’t until next year.
ON THE ONE HAND, John Key is an A-grade Tory dick who never met a serious social issue he wasn’t “relaxed” about and once created a scandal by repeatedly pulling a waitress’s ponytail while his wife hissed at him to stop, like he was a fucking four-year-old. He was also inexplicably popular with the general public, so this could be good news for the election.
ON THE OTHER HAND, everybody who might possibly replace him is SIGNIFICANTLY WORSE in both the dickery and genuine ideological commitment to grinding the poor into the dirt stakes, ESPECIALLY the one woman who spent a long time on the DPB and has devoted her political career to removing every benefit she used to improve her life, as you do. So if the NZ Left doesn’t get its act together in time for next year’s election, this could get very ugly indeed.
2016 WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM. I CAN’T EVEN ENJOY JOHN KEY FUCKING OFF WITHOUT WAITING FOR THE OTHER SHOE TO DROP.
Love comes with pain and sacrifice; and it has no guarantee. But still she said “yes” to you. Do you know what that word means? It means that is how much she’s willing to jump the ledge off for you. She doesn’t mind getting herself broken because you’re beyond more precious than her tears. I’m not telling you this to make feel favored, yet this is a reminder so you don’t waste your chance of being loved unconditionally. Please be on her side and take care of her heart. Fight for her, chase after her, and don’t ever stop choosing her.
