Edgy Kodak Girl on a Dangerous Cliff – 1910 by Jim Griffin

Standing TOO close to the cliff’s edge.

“The Kodak Girl may have liked living close to the edge, with her modern dress, exposing her ankles, and working that new camera.”

Not the White Cliffs of Dover, which you can’t see easily from anywhere on shore. This looks more like the Seven Sisters, near Seaford, almost due south of London, and more than 50 miles southwest from Dover. – Mike (below)

tbh it always confuses me when people try to write Damas as Serious and Stoic, because like… this is a man who 100% canonically:

  • wears a skirt with slits up to the hips, exposing his bare, perfectly smooth thighs
  • probably implanted(?) a crown into his skull, purely for the ~aesthetic~ (or alternatively: glues them on every day?)
  • takes pecker as his ‘advisor’, despite clearly being a competent leader on his own, and no one questions it (implying that the people of Spargus are used to him doing weird shit like this)
  • is literally the dad equivalent of tsundere in his interactions with Jak. THE BIGGEST TSUNDADRE.
    • Pecker: 'oh, are you beginning to care?’
      Damas: 'my concern was for the artifacts!’
    • and my favourite: 'you make me proud! …that…. our training system is so good…’
  • drives his car through a wall with perfect dramatic timing, casually mowing down several enemies that were about to kill Jak before referring to himself as an entire army
    • …which comes after he specifically advised Jak against being rash; when Jak calls him on the fact that he ignored his own advice about not taking enemies head-on, Damas responds with 'it depends on how hard your skull is’
  • actually emotes a lot? like just look at his shit-eating grin as he drops stupid one-liners, or the 'oh shit I fucked up D8’ face when Jak says he never knew his dad; this man is not stoic at all.

conclusion: Damas is the biggest fucking nerd.

Wreck It Ralph D23 breakdown.

So today we got our first real dig into the sequel to the 2012 film! The premise is that Ralph and Vanellope still being friend go out on a mission to save Vanellope’s game as sugar rush has broken down and needs a new part to function. So Ralph and Vanellope take matters into their own hands when litwick (The arcade owner) buys a wifi router and they decide to go into the internet in order to find and order the part! 

We were treated to a scene here of Ralph and Vanellope jumping into a portal that carried them into the internet that can be found here 

After they make it into the internet we treated to a sort of hub of living advertisements which look like people. The one liners in this scene were so sharp and funny that the room was so loud it almost affected the presentation. So we are then introduced to a character called “Yesss” with three sss. This character is being played by Taraji P Henson 

And this character wants to help Ralph and Vanellope on their journey. Yess was described as this character who is representative of the internet. She is always changing with the trends an example of this is her hair and small fashion details seemed to always be in flux literally . Her outfit was also interesting as it was made of fiber optic cables that resembled faux fur her design was VERY cool and her character came off as sweet yet firm to Ralph and his plight. She leads Ralph and Vanellope to a site that she believes can help Ralph go “Virus” as ralph puts it (he means viral). The site in question is an area where Ralph and Vanellope can generate enough hype to help them be popular and it’s LOL 

Which in the scene was treated as a sort of virtual Disneyland with a lot of visual gags representing what a day in the park looks like for the poor inhabitants who live/work there. They even poked fun at Tsum Tsums and the rabid fans who have to collect le merchandise like crazy. The scene worked really well imo and fit with Ralph’s humor for the first film. This leads to the final Scene as vanellope sees the princesses leaving their Meet and Greet parade to their dressing area and decides to visit them to “mess with them”. You basically have a whole 10 minutes of some of the best spit fire jokes with Vanellope interacting with every “offical” brand Disney Princess. And god did that scene have me in tears from the jokes I am not going to spoil a single detail from that but let me say it’s going to be one hell of an iconic scene come 2018 that I PRAY doesn’t get ruined by a trailer.

Mustang’s got personality!
