the trailer showed another movie of lois being useless
justice league trailer: *literally has a two second clip of lois lane walking down the fuckisbg street*
your ass: UHHHH LOIS LANE DIDN’T END WORLD HUNGER, DEFEAT ALL THE EVIL FROM THE EARTH, BRING CLARK KENT BACK FROM THE DEAD, AND SINGLE HANDEDLY GET THE JUSTICE LEAGUE TOGETHER.. THEREFOR SHE IS USELESS. TRUST ME I WENT TO NECKBEARD COLLEGE.
Okay so I know it’s DOB and I’m going to enjoy the AU gif sets as much as the next person but that American Assassin trailer??
Whitey McDudeFace is ANGSTY and in PAIN because EVIL TERRORISTS literally killed HIS GIRLFRIEND IN FRONT OF HIM the day he ASKED HER TO MARRY HIM so now he’s cultivated a MAN-PAIN BEARD and has developed a WEAPONS OBSESSION and spends his days THROWING KNIVES at newspaper cutouts of (BECAUSE THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT) EVIL TERRORISTS which of course makes him the IDEAL CANDIDATE for a super secret EVIL TERRORIST HUNTING ORGANISATION and-
330,235 Netflix accounts canceled over a show no one is forcing them to watch.
Those poor oppressed racists :((( Life must be so hard.
Any way. Consider hopping onto YouTube and giving this trailer a “like” to boost it up against the overexaggerated negative reactions it’s receiving. White people see a 30 second trailer that’s literally only telling white people not to use blackface, and they’re somehow equating that to promoting white genocide (????????).
There was blood on Sana’s hands to symbolise her role in everything that is happening, specifically the shit with Noora (and Yousef) and the shit with Even and Isak. There was blood on Sana’s hands because she feels like she is responsible for their pain, like she is the direct cause.
I imagine the direction of the next half of the season will be Sana trying to fix things. Even though these things are out of her control, that’s not the way she sees it. I can see her trying to console Noora, even though she was hurt by her. I can see her trying to help Isak, even though what happened wasn’t her fault. I can see Sana being isolated, being undermined, being dismissed, being MISUNDERSTOOD.
The meaning of the trailer has literally just intensified. Sana’s intentions through all of this have been good, have been to try and protect her friends, yet they still get hurt. The way everything comes back to Sana represents how she feels responsible or like she is to blame, even the she has no control over what happens. And now the blood on her hands in the last clip solidifies this.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions and a lot of missing information. I hope this break gives us a chance to breath, step back for a bit, and reflect.
For our fourth interview, we have had the privilege of getting to know Mike from Florida, USA. Please take a moment to find out all his great stories from work from when he started writing as well as what inspires him and much more. Thank you for participating, Mike! ❤
Writers Creed: Thank you for joining us! We’d like to start off with a brief introduction. Tell us your name and any nicknames and / or cool story involving them (if any) :)
Mike: First of all I cannot begin answering questions before thanking you for this completely unexpected honor and pleasure. As for nicknames, the number one perk of being named Mike is no matter how old I am or ever get, I shall always be a Mikey, and yes I do like that. Michael is actually my middle name, and I’ll spare you the gory details, but that is confusing. I have a much stranger nickname at work, Frank, as in Frank Frawley. For the past fourteen years I’ve worked for the same family owned business, and for reasons yet unknown, one of them has and will probably always call me Frank. It’s now a running joke, and everyone including me when I’m in a good mood finds this hilarious.
WC: Haha that is a great story Mike. We’ll make sure to stick to Mike and not Frank haha. So onto the real writing questions, what got you into writing?
M: I actually started writing at one of the lowest points in my life, and never had much if any desire to write prior to 1999. Fighting a losing battle with addiction, I had chased away love, most if not all of my friends, and totally destroyed a 21-year career. I wrote about 4 poems to pass the time and hopefully keep some of whatever was left of my sanity. Several years later I was able to share one, “Hush” with a severely depressed friend. She loved it and passed it around to everyone else, who also said they loved it, and I was hooked. Thankfully, she’s now an RN, a happily married mother of two, and I’m doing much better as well.
WC: Wow that is a great answer. It is incredible how people are able to turn tragedy into something positive and in turn also inspire others through their writing
M: People are actually pretty amazing, and when I don’t have my head buried deeply up my behind, I realize, or remember that the true gift of writing is found in the hearts you touch.
WC: Well said, “the true gift of writing is found in the hearts you touch.” 😊 Love that. So what usually motivates you to write? What are the subjects you most touch upon?
M: The motivation like everything else has changed over time. After my first few poems, I started writing to share with my friends at work. Along with enjoying their positive feedback, I totally unexpectedly discovered that I actually loved to write. There are so many thoughts and feelings that I feel I can adequately express only via written words. In our words, we can be actors, saints, sinners, lovers, dreamers, and anything else we can imagine. In its own way, I’ve found writing to be a very liberating experience. Early on, the mostly spiritual books I was reading often inspired me, and of course music, always music. By far my favorite topic has always been love in its many hues, from romantic to tragic to altruistic. A few of my favorite themes are of course pirates, The Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz, God, self-love, and most definitely dreamers.
WC: Lovely answer, just spot on. You have a wonderful point here about how easily it is for us writers to take the role of any character we choose and really go with it. The power to be able to create is fascinating. How long have you been writing?
M: As I mentioned, I wrote about 4 poems in 1999, and for reason I saved them while going through some shall we say pretty interesting times. Several years later when I began sharing them with friends at work, I probably wrote one or two per week at most. You may find this moderately humorous, after a while I started sharing prose on Fridays, and having never heard of prose along with only knowing that a blog had something to do with the internet, I referred to them as Fake Blog Fridays. Since joining Tumblr in December of 2010, and counting whatever I wrote prior to that, I’m “guesstimating” that I’ve written somewhere around 4,000 poems and other types of creative writing.
WC: Haha that is amazing! You know, I think we (all writers on Tumblr who have been blessed with your work) can agree that it was the best thing you did to start writing when you did! ❤ Any strange, interesting, cool stories or experiences happen to you because of the fact that you write?
M: I can’t think of too much other than in my early days of writing at work. I had a readership of about 50 people, and I used to go around each morning whenever I had written a new poem passing them out on company paper, and time. My boss heard about it a few years later, and while shaking his head in disbelief, smiled and said, don’t do that anymore. Also, I’m not generally very comfortable meeting new people, and it certainly was an ice breaker. New employees would often come up to me and ask, “Hey aren’t that poet guy?” Minor though it was, I’m sure I enjoyed the notoriety as the only fish in a small pond.
WC: Cute :) Well now for the last question, tell us a fun fact about you :)
M: Why did they get tough at the end? LOL. For some reason you just reminded me of one of my father’s favorite stories that he loved to share even into old age. His passion was traveling, and as a Marine Corps Officer was allowed 30 days of vacation each year. In a little pale blue Tempest hauling a camper trailer we literally traveled around the country for 3 or 4 weeks once every year. I’ve been in 40 plus states as well as both Canada and Mexico. Yellowstone with its geysers and bears was one of my favorites. Anyway, back to his story. Apparently at least one of my school teachers had called the house expressing her concern over my apparent chronic lying, and when he inquired as to why, she replied, every time we have a geography class and discuss a new location, he says I’ve been there. My father smiled and answered, he has. I can only imagine her expression.
WC: No way! Haha that was epic!
M: I heard that story many times and smiled with each retelling. :)
WC: I can see why. It sure brightened my day.
M: This has been very enjoyable!
WC: Thanks! Well thank you so much for doing this and sharing your soul with us today!
