lords of detroit

Headcanon that whilst living in Detroit, one night Phichit was bored and decided he was going to put makeup on Yuri (Because you can’t tell me Phichit doesn’t at least wear eyeliner) and after his finished product he swore never to put Yuri in make-up ever again because he created something so beautiful that he actually cried.

So this happened today!
Robin is such a sweetie pie!! Like. So sweet!

I mentioned I’m a Nygmobblepot shipper and how much I loved that 53 second staring scene in the last episode. He said I’d enjoy the rest of the season. And he said the next ep is his favorite in terms of Ed and Oswald interactions. Not exact words, because I was freaking out at the time and my memory sucks. But yes. Reeeeally looking forward to Monday’s ep!!!

Still can’t believe I actually met him…

anonymous asked:

you probaby get this a lot (sorry) but what are your fav 1960s and 1970s movies? :D thanks in advance!!

ok fuck this i’m finally gonna do a collective masterpost now once and for all :D

so here it goes…

🌼 actually from the 60s or 70s: pom pom girls (1976), cheech and chong’s up in smoke (1978), american graffiti (1973) and the sequel called more american graffiti (1979), a hard day’s night (1964), there’s a girl in my soup (1970) and cactus flower (1969; both with goldie hawn), saturday night fever (1977), i wanna hold your hand (1978), roller boogie (1979), that funny feeling (1965), if a man answers (1962), send me no flowers (1964), psychout for murder (1969), easy rider (1969), valley of the dolls (1967), beyond the valley of the dolls (1970), foxy brown (1974), what a way to go (1964), the man who fell to earth (1976), the cracked actor documentary about bowie (1975), the leonard cohen documentary called bird on a wire (it only came out a few years ago but was entirely filmed in 1972 on his tour), day for night (originally la nuit américaine, directed by truffaut from 1973), the fearless vampire killers (1967), eye of the devil (1966), breakfast at tiffany’s (1961), come september (1961), grease (1978), the graduate (1967)

🌻 set in the 60s or 70s: almost famous (always the extended version aka the ‘untitled cut’ of the movie which is about 40 mins longer and even more amazing!), sunset strip, lords of dogtown, detroit rock city, velvet goldmine, the runaways, dazed and confused, boogie nights, lovelace, american hustle, slums of beverly hills, kill the king (alternative title is shangri-la suite), fear and loathing in las vegas, taking woodstock, northern soul, the look of love, the dreamers, now and then

then i have a few “special” favorites which are either german movies or german co-productions i have only watched in german myself, but maybe you can find them subtitled or watch them for the aesthetics haha: das wilde leben (english title: eight miles high) about the life of uschi obermaier, sonnenallee (set in 70s east-berlin), die legende von paul und paula (cult movie from 1973), alice in den städten (from 1974, directed by wim wenders), starfighter - sie wollten den himmel erobern (yeah it was on RTL but the movie itself was pretty good and it’s set in the mid-60s to mid-70s and they captured the times and its aesthetics and the music really well in my opinion), ich ein groupie (rock groupie movie from 1970 with ingrid steeger), eis am stiel 1-8 (english title: lemon popsicle) which is a movie series consisting of 8 comedy films with the same actors and they’re all set in the late 50s-early 60s and were filmed in the late 70s and throughout the 80s but ugh they’re my fave summer films i watch them all the time lol

that’s about it, that’s literally all my favorite movie recommendations from or set in the 60s/70s 🌼🌻

Duke and Kane!!!!

I called this picture “BusinessMerger.psd” and I’m really proud of myself.

I can’t imagine these guys dancing, so instead a Very Reluctant Handshake!  Which creates…

The Don of Deluxe.  

You can’t trust this man as far as he can throw you, which isn’t saying too much because he can throw you pretty damn far, but the point stands.  Backstabbing abounds. 

More concerning, though; the Duke and Kane’s combined tempers and egos make for a violent, mercurial, childish, insatiably greedy monster of a man. 

Thankfully, they would be very difficult to fuse and very easy to unfuse!  Which is a small mercy, because holy crap. 8T
