like how ironic would that be

i’m just gonna tell you this: if i were writing this movie there is no mcfucken WAY i wouldn’t include a frustrated or reverent peter parker line mentioning how he thinks tony is “like, invincible or something,” there’s no way i would miss out on this opportunity to have tony go “friendly neighborhood spider-man” on peter AND have peter go “invincible iron man” on tony in the same movie

I kind of wish Iron Fist had been more comedic and like, made fun of its premise. I think it might have worked then.

“The Chosen One of this secret magical martial arts village is…an American heir to a major corporation?”

Like keep everything from the base origin, the plane crash, the village vanishing due to magic, everything, but go hog wild with how ridiculous it all is.

Hell, have this be an exchange early on:

Danny “So okay, I’m the Chosen One, the Iron Fist, I’m trained, what’s my mission? What was I chosen for?”

“Well it seems our ancient enemies The Hand, have taken over an important American company to serve as a front for their operations.”

Danny: “So…am I using magical martial arts to defeat them or using that I’m heir to a big company?”

“…Danny we’re saying they took over your family’s company.”

Danny: “The company that was only open to takeover because my parents died and I got stranded here and ended up the Chosen One?”

“Yeah.”

Danny: “Darn self-fulfilling prophecies. Okay, let’s get this show on the road!”

I think one of the most baffling memes of the last few years was the “Keep calm and ____” meme just because people disregarded the format more than any other meme I can think of. And I dont mean ironically like “look at me I am the captain now” how people would just throw phrases into it that didnt make sense, I mean how the phrase “keep calm” just because a marketing technique for literally anything. I saw a bumper sticker on a car this past weekend with the phrase “Keep calm and I am a Greyhound Owner.” The phrase “keep calm” adds nothing to it other than an excuse for the person to put a bumper sticker on their car saying that they are a greyhound owner. 

Another amazing example of this was when Ben Carson tweeted this image on his birthday, implying that people were fraught with anxiety only to be calmed by the fact that it was Ben Carson’s birthday.

on the new Iron Fist series

So after binge watching a ton of Marvel’s new Iron Fist series, I went onto tumblr, wondering what the fandom was up to now, what with all these new gifs and stuff to make. ‘Maybe I would find some fan art or something’ I thought innocently to myself,

BUT BOY WAS I WRONG

instead, I was greeted with SO MUCH DISCOURSE on how Iron Fist ‘needs a chinese-american actor’ or ‘has terrible dialogue and is slow’.

the best part is when I found out that some of y’all are trying to get this show boycotted like ‘????’

Now as a Chinese-speaking Asian female, living in Asia, with an Asian background and a good know-how of Chinese history, as well as a decent knowledge of comic books, (although I confess I got into the animated series first) I’m here to end the discussion before y’all get your full rage on and start fighting fans of the show like it’s Lord of the Flies up in here

So keep reading if you want to be educated or if you just want to fight me before you know what you’re even talking about

“THE SHOW INSULTS CHINESE CULTURE”

Uhhhh…no? I’ve seen a few episodes and I mean so far there isn’t really anything that screams ‘insult’ or even offensive in the slightest. Besides maybe the fact that they take the beliefs and twist them a little bit but honestly even that ain’t that bad as to what I’ve seen elsewhere.

I’ve read the boycott post and let me say that yea, they dressed him with an eye for Asian elements, but maybe that’s because it’s supposed to be resembling Asian clothing? I mean how is that offensive? Is it the part that it looks Asian? Or that you simply feel that white people that direct these shows should not be using Asian stuff for entertainment? Because I hate to break it to you but it’s still not offensive. Even the dragon tattoo is totally fine because it’s supposed to resemble Asian elements yea but also have y’all read the comics? Because he punched through a dragon and basically took it’s heart. So I mean a dragon tattoo kinda matches the theme.

I mean in the first episode they speak almost flawless Chinese for Pete’s sake! Hell, I was surprised that they even had it in them to have a non-Google translated line. Sure the accent was a little overdoing it cuz not even I have that thick a Chinese accent but I’ll excuse it since he was apparently learning and speaking 15 years. (I speak it maybe a few times a day for like the last 14 years or so only)

So no, the show doesn’t really insult Chinese culture, sure they might be ignorant, but you must understand that after generations of stereotypes and misconceptions that that can’t just go away with one show

“Danny Rand should be played by an Asian guy/be a Chinese-American”

I can’t even begin to tell you my frustration about this.

Y’all do know this show is based on the comics right?

You know, the one with the white guy.

I know Marvel is infamous for not including enough representation in their shows but seriously? This is like the Harry Potter thing all over again with Hermione being black, it’s not that we don’t want representation or anything, but it’s the fact that this hero that us comic fans have come to already love has been replaced. Or at least it feels like it. Like when a movie is made from a book and people go crazy because character XYZ suddenly has different traits or isn’t quite what was described as compared to the book.

Frankly, it sucks.

So even though yes, Marvel should have more Asians in their shows, don’t expect them to completely give the main character a makeover, even if the makeover was supposed to provide representation. And honestly? I don’t want them to change him because I really freaking love Iron Fist, just as he is.

“This show just villainizes Asians”

So you tell me that my race is being made villains because Marvel decided that most of their Asians on their shows are evil ninjas (aka the Hand) and at most there are like 3 sorta good Asians. Oh and I’m sorry, you want more Asian men that are good guys? You want a balance of Asian heroes?

Well I guess that would be kind of hard to fit into the story since, oh, I don’t know, everything happens in the USA?

If you want more Asian characters well then look no further because you do have them. Daisy Johnson from Agents of Shield? What about her extremely brave mom? Or maybe Colleen in Iron Fist? Everyone seems to be blatantly ignoring her badassery and only seeing the part where she’s a sorta love interest.

Facts are, there are Asian characters, you’re really just looking hard enough. I agree wholeheartedly when you say that more Asian men need to be in the Marvel universe that aren’t part of the bad guy team but you gotta say that they are still awesome.

Does anyone even remember the Japanese ninja yakuza guy from Daredevil? Dude got set on fire and STILL came back to kick ass. That’s a plus in my book because even though he’s considered bad, he’s been proven to be cunning, smart, and overall awesome.

“The show has terrible stunts/acting/dialogue/fight scenes”

From here on out it’s mostly just me trying to explain why the directors and writers of the show made decisions in the show to make it what it is, so let’s dive right into it.

  • STUNTS

Actually the stunts weren’t half-bad. If you’ve seen other shows or movies that are heavily reliant on stunts and action, and compare it to this show, they really aren’t that much different. Sure it might seem a little unbelievable sometimes like they’re breaking physics or something, but he already has a glowing fist. I think we’ve crossed the line of believable long ago.

  • ACTING

I have nothing to say about this except that go and take some acting or drama classes before coming and criticizing these awesome men and women who did indeed try their best

  • DIALOGUE

Now I get the dialogue might be a little weird at times and what not, but you must understand that this show was partially written with the Defenders series in mind. So almost everything that was said in the show is meant to lead to something more. Thus, you must take it as a bigger picture. Sorta like how everyone said that Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them wasn’t as good as they thought it would be, that movie was also meant to lead on to a bigger story so you might want to excuse the weird speech and cryptic lines at times.

  • FIGHT SCENES & ACTION

Okay seriously people, please read the comics. Danny Rand is supposed to be an accidental hero, one that doesn’t want to fight unless he really has zero choice in the matter. So yea, the fight scenes won’t be that interesting, but only because the character in question is more interested in ending the fight than anything.

~

So there you have it, my whole slightly angry info-dump on Iron Fist and Marvel’s representation problem in general. If you want to correct me or scold me even then by all means message me or shoot me an ask. But just keep in mind that Marvel can’t make all your problems go away in one show, and please for the love of all that is good read the comics before coming to rant okay?

There was a huge push from Asian-Americans to cast an Asian-American actor as Iron Fist, and it would have made this story more compelling for precisely the reasons you’re saying: The narrative of having an Asian-American going back to Asia after losing his parents as a metaphor for regaining power is a really great one. It feels like a missed opportunity.
It is a missed opportunity. That’s exactly how I feel about it, word for word. It would’ve been a brave thing to do, for sure, for Marvel. I can see how that was difficult to make that decision. I think, personally, it would’ve paid off. But I think it’ll come next because people are feeling underrepresented. People are like, “Yo, this was a perfect opportunity to represent us.” They chose not to, and it’s not even their fault. I see why they stuck to the source material because it’s very risky to move away from that, but they’ll move away from it in other areas and in other shows where they’ll take an Asian character and make him white. So you can’t really win with that argument. Because we’ve seen many times when they’ve taken Asian characters and made him white.

K guys so

If Sirius and Remus got married right
Think of the mess Sirius’ last name would be
Because I like to think he calls himself a Potter, like “Sirius Black-Potter”
They all joke about how ironic that sounds, but he likes being a Potter instead of a Black
BUT THEN TRY ADDING ANOTHER HYPHENATED NAME
Sirius Black-Potter-Lupin
Remus just decides to keep his as “Lupin” because it wouldn’t be accurate to be “Black-Lupin” but it can’t be “Potter-Lupin” because “I’m marrying Sirius, not you, Prongs, fuck off.”

Now imagine Peter being like “k Pads, now you just have to fit Pettigrew in there somewhere and you can be representing all of us because right now I’m feeling very left out”

Y’all fake asking for Asian Iron Fist. If only there were some bad ass martial artists that was originally Asian and could easily be in a Netflix series.

If only he existed

That would be so great

For real though, Danny Rand is a white person…instead of being mad that he’s white in the MCU how about we hype up Shang Chi? Because Shang Chi is a better fighter than like…everyone in the Marvel Universe and idk about y’all but I much rather have a poc character represented than just race swap em.

amosaicofmagic  asked:

Hey, tumblr mom! Since everyone is asking you about food can I ask your opinion on frying pans? We need to replace ours and my husband is really into the idea of buying cast iron frying pan. It seems like to much work for me, tough. I've always used either stainless steel or teflon ones. What do you think? Is it worthy? And if you had to choose between teflon or stainless steel which would you buy?

Oh, and I was going to mention it in the other ask I sent but forgot. I have IBS and one thing that really helps me is chilean boldo infusion. Idk how easy it to find it where you live (the fresh leaves work best), but it’s something a lot of south-americans use to treat hepatic and gastrointestinal issues. (Fun fact: the nurse at my high school used to have a bottle of concentrated cold boldo infusion in the fridge to give to students who were hangover)

Thank you for that last little bit, it’s something I will bring up with my allergist/many doctors as a quick google tells me it could also help my gallstone/bile production issues. So thank you :)

And ooooh god not teflon, anything but teflon, firstly because I don’t like how they cook/retain heat, and secondly because of some of the health concerns that comes with what happens when teflon starts to break down and you start eating it/breathing it in. Y’all can call me a mad hippy over that if you want but when your immune system is as fragile as mine you’ll avoid anything at all that might harm it.

Both stainless steel and cast iron have their merits. 

Cast Iron

You are right in that the cast iron takes a little more work to upkeep—initially. After it’s been seasoned a few times and you don’t do things like soak it in water or scrub it with lemon juice, it’s going to become practically indestructible. There’s a reason you can still buy cast iron skillets in antique stores that just need a little bit of salt and oil to get them back in working order. If you maintain it right, your cast iron will likely outlive you by quite a few decades. I wipe mine clean after every use using waterand  a non acidic soap, dry it on a high heat, and then season lightly with some oil after each use. Once it starts to smoke, that’s you, you’re done seasoning. You only really have to do the salt and oil scrub if it loses the coating or if something gets burned onto it, or if you have rust spots, which happen form not being properly sealed. 

I will say, cast iron is hard to get used to working with at first, because of how differently you have to manage the way it conducts heat. Cast iron is great at retaining heat, which is what makes it great for searing meat and yes, even baking in, but you need to get it hot first, which can require about ten minutes of prep over a hot stove trying to ensure even heat coverage. (I throw mine in the oven for 20 mins)

That might seem like a lot of work, but given how well it retains the heat after that, it actually cooks things better. With stainless steel the output of heat is enough to sear the outside of something, but to cook say, a chicken in it (yes you can cook a whole chicken in a skillet) you’d need to keep it on the heat for longer for the heat to reach the middle, resulting in chewy over tough food. With cast iron, the heat output from it is so much better that it’s already starting to cook the rest of the bird while you’re searing it, resulting in less cook time, and hopefully a more juicy meat—as well as making the outside very nice and crispy. Cast iron is great for making things crispy.

That and you know, you can fight the Fae folk with it if the need arises.

Stainless Steel

There’s a common misconception that you can just throw things into a stainless steel pan and it’ll be fine. But the truth is if you want to maintain your stainless steel in good working condition, you will want to make sure it’s evenly oiled before any food touches it (Ask ETD about the time he made popcorn and ruined my pot because there wasn’t enough oil around the SIDES of the pot so the heat just obliterated everything and I had to buffer the pot to get it back to working condition, he felt so bad lol) and make sure that it is adequately preheated. Otherwise your food is just going to burn and stick to the base and it’s going to be a mother fucker to get it off. I’ve seen far too many people burn away the caramelization going on in their stainless steel pans because they don’t know how to heat/preheat with it. (note if your caramelization does get stuck, loosen it up with some water or better yet some stock, get that flavor back in your food yo!) Other than that, yea, once you get used to how stainless steel works and retains heat, it is lower energy when it comes to maintenance vs cast iron. Just don’t use cold salt water in them, or you risk pitting the pans. (As I have previously talked about)

Because you have mentioned you have IBS, I will stress the importance of trying to buy as high quality stainless steel as you can, as not all stainless steel is made equal. 

Surgical stainless steel is the safest as it is non porous, while a lot of the cheap stainless steel you can pick up (I’m thinking of places like Walmart and Target) can break down and leech into food during the cooking process. Stainless steel is an alloy made from a mix of metals including iron, chromium (is what keeps it from corroding) and nickel to name but a few components, and given nickel is a high allergy metal you don’t want that going into the foods of people who may be sensitive/allergic. (I had a friend find this out the hard way that that is what was going on with her)

The way I was taught to test the quality of the pan is by holding a magnet up to it. If it sticks? It’s typically going to be higher in nickel than you want it to be and could cause a possible health risk for people with nickel allergies. Nickel is also a carcinogenic and considered worse than aluminium which everyone and their dog is now trying to get away from because of the metal being linked to cancers and altzheimers, so, just something to keep in mind seen as how you already have a compromised gut <3 

(Also to those of you reading this now who are about to go check your pans: if it sticks? It’s not a cause for panic. Although if you have a known nickel allergy and you keep getting sick and you have no idea why…you may want to consider replacing your pans.)

There is also a third option available to you, which is ceramic pans. Which honestly have become my favorite frying pans to cook with. Due to their low metal content they will not work on induction stove tops, but if you’re using electric or gas you’re good to go.

Ceramic

They still don’t have the slippy non stick you get from teflon pans where flipping a pancake is akin to wielding a projectile weapon, but given how ceramic heats up and retains heat, they are pretty non stick and it makes them ideal for cooking with a lot of things. You also generally shouldn’t use metal utensils on them, because you can damage the glaze, but plastic, wood and silicone are fine.

They’re sort of like the easier to maintain version of cast iron in that regard and use less oil to cook with. (I personally would never fry eggs on stainless steel, meat and veg sure, but eggs need a surface that is more forgiving and ceramic was a god damn revolution to me. I speak from over a decade’s worth of experience of making breakfasts in restaurants and cafes) They are also great for throwing in the oven, and using as shallow casserole dishes, provided you make sure they are listed as oven safe. (Mine is good up to 350′f)

Due to the materials  they are made with, they are also pretty damn sturdy and hard to break, and you also can’t damage them by soaking them in water, which is also nice. You should not however cook on anything higher than a medium-high heat on them, whacking your heat up as far as you can with a ceramic pan is going to cause issues (it will cause issues with a lot of pans tbh, but you can generally get away with it for boiling water, just not in a ceramic pot), like breaking down the glaze quicker and ruining the non stick. You also should not take it from a hot stove and throw it in the sink right after cleaning. You really shouldn’t do that with any cooking utensil, but especially do not do it with ceramic as you might crack or even explode it. And no one wants that. 

Again, like stainless steel, not all ceramic pans are made equal and some will be made from cheap material/coated with an extra non stick layer to compensate for this, and they will break down faster/ruin your food, so keep that in mind if you do decide you want to look into them. Between the three, ceramic is in my experience the best, most easily maintained non stick without the health risks of teflon. It’ll also cost less in the long run, because you wont have to replace the pan as often as you would a teflon one.

I currently have the Green Pan Lima frying pans, which tbh I found a lot cheaper in an outlet mall than Amazon currently has it listed for, and I think Target might be selling them right now too for cheaper. It’s an excellent pan and I can get really crispy results with it due to how well it holds heat. I’ve also used it to bake with.

I have also used the Cuisinart ceramic range, which you can use metal on, but I sort of found the heat retention to be not as good as Green Pan Lima.

And then there’s also the Green Life range which tends to be cheaper and rather cute, even if it doesn’t feel quite as sturdy in my hands. (They currently have both the large and small pan on sale on Amazon for $30, which is pretty good)  I’ve got my eye on their ceramic bake ware sets though. I’m intrigued to see how they’d work out compared to my metal tins.

Anyway, I hope some of that was helpful for you, in weighing your options. Ultimately it’s about personal preference. I love all my pans, cast iron, stainless steel and ceramic, but it really depends on how much maintenance you are willing to put in, and how much you are willing to spend.

As for the rest of you, you now know more about cookware than you likely want to, but who knows, it might be useful for you one day :)

I actually managed to finish it in one day bc a terrible headache kept me home and all the notes and comments on the previous one kept me motivated ♡ now I just gotta find a cute lace to add and it’s done! (I also need to iron it ssshh)

Again, thank you for the wonderful comments and tags on the other piece, I hope you like this too!

Trump claims that he “alone” could rescue America from its misery. Hitler famously conjured the model of “the genius, the great man” who alone held the key to the destiny of Germany. Calling democracy “a joke,” Hitler fiercely disdained what he called “weak majorities.” Trump doesn’t believe in democracy either. 

Hitler was building the case for the Führerprinzip—a belief in the iron infallibility of the leader. It was an elaborate, historically wrought version of the “I alone” principle. With it, Hitler eventually won power in Germany and governed as an absolute despot.

Trump wants Americans to trust him. Everyone should just trust him, him alone, trust him to solve problems and implement even implausibly programs like rounding up eleven million undocumented immigrants. When challenged during the primaries for programs or plans on how he would carry out his extreme policy proposals, he habitually fell back on “trust me” or variations such as his unbelievable ability to “get things done.”

“There has to be a trust,” he told reporters who asked for details about his programs. 

Tell me, America… do you trust this man? 

How each of the avengers truly think of you

Sorry for not going through all of the avengers, but I couldn’t think of something for all of them.

Tony Stark

Tony was the definition of a billionaire. He dated, and slept with gorgeous models, drink only the finest wines and alcohol and had more cars than you could count. It wouldn’t be surprising if he owned his own island. (Guess what, he does). Even when he was Iron Man, a tiny bit of him thought he was above everyone else, but with you, he felt none of that, he felt like he was a better person with you, like all his anxieties and fears faded away. Of course, he wouldn’t show it. He hides it well with humour, sarcastic remarks, and snarky comments. Maybe it was how his father treated him, or maybe that was just who he was. But you would sometimes catch his glare, looking at you with just one thought. He was madly in love with you.

Steve Rogers

Steve was a real gentleman, so he knew how to treat you right. But ever since he came out of the ice he has felt, strange. Known as the man out of time, because he was. And he felt like it. So he filed that void as being a the only thing he has known, a solder in the army. Even when he found Bucky, it wasn’t the same, he wasn’t the same, He wasn’t the real… Bucky, but when he met you, all that changed. He was reminded of something. Or more rather, someone. Peggy. You were beautiful, like her. Strong, like her. Independent, like her. Perfect, like her. Steve was completely infatuated with you, and to be honest, a little scared. Because of how much of a strong, independent person you are. Of course he would never tell you this, because he is to embarrassed. But you worked it out, because after all. Steve is a terrible liar.   

Natasha Romanoff

Natasha was a spy and an assassin. So, she knew how much emotions were both dangerous and useless. Her past has been dark, depressing, dangerous and evil. So, she was not only embarrassed it, but also it convinced her that she was nothing but a monster. A horrible, evil killer that is not only not capable of love, but also doesn’t deserve it. But as soon as she met you, she something odd. She saw herself. The sad backstory, the red in their ledger. But more importantly, she saw how you held yourself. How you faced the world with a spring in your step, a smile on your face and an optimistic look of the future. Natasha felt strange about you, but she could quite figure out why. Emotions were something that she didn’t quite use, or listen to. But she knew you were different. You made her different. You made Natasha want be a better woman. You made her want to be more, happier. But the most important thing of all. You were someone that Natasha wished that she could grow up to be just like you. 

Bucky Barnes

Bucky had possibly been through the worst experiences any human could ever have been through. Being brainwashed, trained and turned into a Russian super assassin against his will, and fought his best friend. Not to mention being on the run for what seems like ever. But then he met, you. While he was undercover, he saw you. Your beauty, your smile, and your spectacular body. He spent almost al his time in that area trying his best to spot you again. Because he could was overwhelmed by you. Over time he was just in complete love with you. But he saw himself a little differently. He noticed himself actually caring for someone. Something he hadn’t done since he became the Winter Solder. But it wasn’t all love and joy, Bucky would often wake in the middle of the night screaming, sweating, and fear. You would try and comfort him, but it was no good. The worst times was when he lashed out at you and he broke your arm. He felt horrible he wanted to leave and save you. But you would just hug him tightly, and simply whisper “I am the one to keep you safe, simply by loving you”   

Thor Odinson

Thor thought he had it all, being a god, having all that power and being the son of Odin. But he has also felt betrayal, powerlessness, and loneliness. And even with the avengers on earth he has always felt like the odd one out, sure he had Jane, and his real family on Asgard, but it just felt like nothing until he met you. You where the light of his life, and he treated you like his Queen. In every way you can imagine. He visits you at least one a day. Twice if your lucky. And all day on weekends. He loves you with all his heart and more. Whatever you want to do, he will do it. weather you want to, go out exploring the nine realms, just lay in bed watching Disney films, go to the cinema or theatre or just do nothing. He will do it for you. Because He thinks so much of you, and he would do anything for you. Even sacrifice himself. But most importantly, he loves you because like himself, you think Loki can be helped.  

Loki laufeyson

Loki was a villain, well that’s what everyone thought. Because even though has attacked earth, attempted to take over Asgard, and even attempted to kill and take Odin’s place and be king. You saw him differently. You saw the victim. The little boy who is crying out for help. And you heard him cry. When he is with you he actually wants to think about his actions before he does them. And he always makes sure that even if he does something bad, he makes sure you are safe at all times. Because he was maybe the only person who he treats with respect, and you are very special to him. He think of you above all. The favourite thing to do with you is wrapped in dozens of blankets and you just listening to his stories, and Loki using his telepathy bringing food, drinks and everything your need. Because like Thor, he too treats you like his Queen.
