lots of good actors

That moment in For Good you realize its one of the actresses’ last performance and their goodbyes and thanks descend to a personal level and you just know you’re gonna be a blubbering mess of tears by the end.

reasons to listen to the bright sessions

- refreshing representation. the bright sessions might not have as wildly diverse lgbt+ representation as other podcasts (cough cough penumbra) but honestly it’s really cleansing when a character says the word ‘bisexual’ out loud to describe themselves idk
- sam’s character development
-CHARACTER-DRIVEN CONFLICT. the entire season finale was heartbreaking and intense and entirely driven by the characters. yea theres a dangerous government organization and superhuman abilities but the main plot revolves around these people and their actions and motivations. even the secret government organization is represented by people with varying personalities and motives making the decisions
- sam’s character development
- a canonically ace character who isn’t a reserved introvert (i love all ace characters lbr but an extrovert ace is a nice change of pace)
- the empath starts off as a seemingly the trope-y angry football bro but he’s so so much more than that,, he brings herbal tea in a flask to parties and he loves his boyfriend and he’s terrified of his own anger anD I LOVE CALEB A LOT OK
-sam’s character development
- ridiculously good voice actors
- acknowledging emotional abuse as a legitimate form of abuse that results in trauma
- found family
- ABUSERS DON’T GET REDEMPTION ARCS. a complex antagonist goes from annoying and edgy to abuser to full-on threat, not the other way around.

8 Reasons to Watch: Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

Im so sad that this k-drama ended and so in love with it that i needed to make a 8 reasons to watch post. First things first, sorry for any english mistakes. Hope you enjoy this post! :) 

There are some spoilers in this post, especially in item #3, but nothing too revealing.

1. The Main character

When you see a strong female character in a k-drama, she’s often faking her personality or just being rude. Kim Bok Joo is a strong character and she’s still a human being. She lifts wheight, dedicating herself and putting her strenght on it and then she goes home to have fun and drink with her best friends. The main character show us that you can be strong and empowered and still live normally. That’s why we like her so much: she’s a female symbol of strength and still a young women who wants to enjoy her life and have some fun.

2. The swag couple

This is one of the cutest couples I’ve ever seen. In the end of the drama you’ll just be thinking “Omg, I wish I had a relationship like this!”. Bok Joo and Joon Hyung discover their first love in the peak of their lives, when they can do anything, like Bok Joo said in the last episode. That’s what makes this couple so special: their relationship is full of love, youth and affection.

3. Portrays Serious Issues

When I got to know the girls from Rythmic Gymnastics, I got really sad. They had to private themselves from eating in order to achieve perfection. Look at that: Song Si Ho even developed eating disorders. The scene which some girls break a scale in the middle of the night might seem fun to some, but to me it was really sad. We need to give more attention to Song Si Ho: to me, she’s one of the best characters in this drama.

4. It makes you laugh

Originally posted by iamyourdoom

Sun Ok, Nan Hee and Bok Joo = FRIENDSHIP GOALS! I died watching their moments together, not to mention the question “Do you like Messi?” who make me laugh loud. This drama is surrounded by funny scenes (like when they go to the amusement park) and the sound effects in the background, like the guy saying WHAT? just make them even funnier, don’t ask me why.

5. And even cry!

Originally posted by prinzangel

The whole thing with Joon Hyung and his mom are so sad. Family bonds make a great presence in this drama: you most certainly will get emotional seeing how much Joon Hyung’s uncles and Book Joo’s father try hard to provide everything to their children. 

6. Lovely soundtrack

Originally posted by rawryen

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo doesn’t have a big soundtrack, but it’s lovely and pleasing to listen from the first song to the last. The theme to all songs is “First Love”, and they’re going to make you remember the main couple’s sweet moments together. My favorite song is From Now On! What’s yours?

7. Amazing cast

Originally posted by kdramadaily

This drama’s cast is amazing! They are not only good actors: they had lots of fun recording Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo and became close to each other. Nam Joo Hyuk even said he want’s to play a main couple with Lee Sung Kyung again! Isn’t that cute?

8. It is unique.

Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo is not only about love: it shows us the power of true friendship, working hard to achieve your goals in life and a family who always tries to keep you happy. You’ll end this drama missing all the characters, and I’m not even kidding. This drama also teaches us that we need to enjoy our youth, the most beautiful phase of our lives. Kim Bok Joo is a young girl, and she’s just like us in various points. That’s the story portrayed in this k-drama: a young life, lived with lots of swag.

I redraw a part from this AMAZING cmv because

 O MY GOD THIS COSPLAYER IS SUCH A GOOD ACTOR!!!

It helped me a lot for drawing facial expression even if I’m not totally satisified by this shitty drawing xD

anonymous asked:

There's something I never understood - why does Lady Anne agree to marry Richard III if she hates him so much? I keep rereading the scene but I still don't understand why she changes her mind.

I’m inclined to say you’re reading it right if it seems incomprehensible. I believe it’s meant to be audacious, even verging on ridiculous, that Richard should manage to woo his erstwhile enemies’ wife and daughter-in-law right in front of her father-in-law’s corpse. Even Richard thinks so: ‘Was ever woman in this humour wooed? / Was ever woman in this humour won?’ (1.2.213-14)

What the scene really shows is the sheer seductiveness of Richard’s rhetoric in spite of his looks and in spite of everything he’s done. In terms of the play as a whole it’s an extremely important thing to establish. But because Anne is pretty intelligent herself, the scene also has something in common with Shakespeare’s intelligent wrangling couples like Beatrice and Benedick, or even Katherine and Petruchio, whose wordplay and argument hide serious sexual tensions. It’s often the case in Shakespeare and in many other stories that hatred and repulsion are the preliminary to love or physical attraction (think of the classic Pride and Prejudice model of love story where the protagonist and main love interest start off disliking one another). Because unlike indifference, hatred is at least some form of passion; they’re often said to be two sides of the same coin, and though it’s not necessarily a good thing, there’s often a close association between intense sexual attraction and violence. It’s just particularly excessive in the case of Lady Anne and Richard, and unlike most uses of this hate to love trope, it’s sinister because it’s entirely faked on Richard’s side.

Basically, there isn’t really a reason why Lady Anne changes her mind: she just does. It’s unreasonable because it’s irrational. They engage in a battle of wits with a strong underlying sexual tension and where it’s made clear from Richard’s approach that the stakes are her marital status, and she’s ultimately defeated. He manages to turn Anne into the reason for which he killed the people she loved and he does it so insistently and powerfully that she starts to believe it. Then he guilt-trips her: ‘That hand which for thy love did kill thy love / Shall for thy love kill a far truer love. / To both their deaths shalt thou be accessary’ (1.2.175-77). He appeals to emotional reactions rather than to reason and is willing to risk his life for his bet that she will succumb to him. And she does. She’s so confused by the end she doesn’t even know what to think: 'I would I knew thy heart’ (1.2.178). She’s half convinced, half doubting. It might even be deliberate that he targets her at the funeral when she’s most emotionally vulnerable. He’s utterly odious, but it’s hard not to admire his nerve and ingenuity

Having said all this, the best way to understand the scene might be to see it played well rather than reading it lots of times. A good actor can really convey Richard’s repulsive seductiveness in a way that makes Anne’s capitulation somewhat comprehensible.

Auditions!

Yes! It’s finally here! The oh so talented Caterina Primrose is finally starting her own theatre troupe! (I haven’t decided 100% on a name yet.)

Posts have been made previously about this, and with the growing excitement, I was inspired to quickly make it happen. I have so many ideas in mind.

This is NOT a guild, so you don’t have to leave one thing you love to go to another, you know? 

When are auditions being held? Saturday, February 18th and Sunday, February 19th at 5:00 pm server (on both days)

Where?  

OOCLY - The City Hall in the Cathedral Square 

ICLY - Since it’s not really plausible for her to rent the City Hall (it is the CITY hall), it’ll just be in a building somewhere else in the city, due to the fact the city is much bigger in reality than game mechanics allow it to be.

Audition requirements: 

  1. One monologue that your character has memorized (You can obviously just pull it up online)
  2. Your character is required to bring a prepared little piece of music to either play or sing (if you were doing it in real life it’d be no more than a minute). If your character can’t sing, DON’T worry! The troupe won’t be doing too much singing unless we all decide to do a musical. It’s just helpful to know who can and cannot bust out them vocal chords when we do need it. So if the monologue is good, they’ll likely be admitted in!

What sort of things would we be doing?

If your character is accepted to be part of the troupe, we’d choose a play, hold auditions, cast, have little rehearsals every few days, figure out venues, perform at other guild’s events (if we can), perform our own shows, and when we don’t have a major production going on or want to role-play something more than rehearsal - we’ll do fun skits and street improvisation! 

What if my character wouldn’t perform but I’d still like to be involved?

We need Directors. This will enable your character to get their creative side rolling and portray the story how they perceived it with their artistic vision in mind. If we don’t have directors, I’ll be directing all the shows, I’d love to see other people give it a try though!

We could use Playwrights. Original work would be SO cool. 

As a theatre major I can tell you that we need a LOT more than just actors. We need costume designers - yes! If you’re good at those mogs and would like to help, contact me please, omg! 

We also need stage hands, people who can help us fulfill the visual special effects and help with set designing/locations. Stage hands also just generally help the actors backstage. If they need a quick change, or someone to do their makeup/hair for them, stage hands help.

We need ushers! People who will escort and interact with the audience before the show, during intermission, and after! This means you might be collecting the money at the ticket box, or relax at the concession stand as well.

If your character would want to sit back and let someone else take the reigns while they observe and learn, they can audition for the troupe as an understudy! 

If your character wouldn’t be involved at all but supports it, come see the shows, sponsor them, donate clothing for costumes! It’s something that has a place for everyone in the community, and I hope to see you all there. 

Sincerely, the mun, Cam. <3

These asks are making me want a principal actor nursey and stage manager dex au

okay but consider this: irritable techie dex and always-the-male-lead nursey who fucks everything up and trips over props and ropes and lights and dex hates him so, so much except not really because nursey is there early and leaves late and helps clean up whatever mess he makes and he’s pretty and smiles at dex a lot and he’s actually a really, really good actor ,

In the words of those who know him …


“ …  Sam Heughan is not just a great actor - he is kind.” - Jodi Picoult

“I think it’s just very hard not to have an affinity with Sam. He’s just such a lovely guy, you know what I mean?” - Duncan Lacroix

“Sam is very modest, but he is Jamie. He is. He is a thoroughly decent, kind and lovely man and I very sincerely mean that. He is exactly what you see, he is a good guy.” - Graham McTavish

“I know a lot of actors and actresses, and I gotta tell you, they simply don’t make many like @samheughan… .  It almost never happens that the one who makes it big is a legitimately good person… . there is seriously not a better guy out there” - Adam Sigal

“The stories are true, @samheughan is the most decent, generous and talented guy you’ll meet and a truly gifted actor. I see your tweet and raise you this unabashed Instagram tribute.”   ~ David Berrry

“When I first met Sam at our chemistry test… he was just the nicest guy. He just put me at ease, and I was a little nervous. He’s just that kind of solid, grounded guy.” - Caitriona Balfe

anonymous asked:

I haven't really followed anything going on for the Han Solo movie. Why are people not liking it? Just wondering.

  • There are a few (really biased things) like I personally believe the Actor they got to play Han himself could have been picked a lot better. Alden Ehreneich is a good actor, but to me he just doesn’t scream Han Solo. He doesn’t scream that appeal that Harrison Ford built in the original trilogy.
  • They had the chance to sign on a WOC lead such as Zoe Kravitz, Tessa Thompson, Kiersey Clemons, and Naomi Scott and they just so happened to pick another White British Woman.
    • So salty about this. So, so salty.
    • No offense to Emilia Clarke, she’s a great actress but this was an amazing opportunity to open the doors to a WOC lead who is equally as good and could help diverse the Star Wars Franchise.
  • Lots of people fear that Emilia Clarke’s character is going to be nothing more than Han Solo’s love interest before he meets Leia. C’mon if you gonna cast a woman like her make her kick ass, don’t add her into the mix because you need to flunk up a movie with your hetro BS okay okay.
  • It’s a movie a lot of people… didn’t ask for. Binch, we could have had a Darth Maul Movie…….. Anyone…. but we got another Han Solo. Now, I love him so very much. But, I don’t think that a solo(jhahaha) movie is needed for a character so built upon already.
  • I’m convinced the only good choice was Donald Glover as Lando. Mmmmm boi.
  • AND THANDIE NEWTON. Who didn’t actually appear in the picture released yesterday. Bummer. :/

anonymous asked:

RE: discussions: Since Victor is basically alone with no one but his dog, he is soooooo vulnerable to being attacked or mistreated in any way. Like, even minor arguments between him and Yuuri. Who is he going to talk to about his problems? Yuri is too young, Yakov is too strict, Makkachin is a dog... I mean, Chris is the only real option, but Chris doesn't get his feelings; he wanted to get Victor back on the ice and stop being Yuuri's coach. *part 1

Part 2: I could really see Victor ending up mistreating himself in trying to please Yuuri, and Yuuri not even finding out at first because he’s too fucking good of an actor. He already does a lot of things for Yuuri that he could do himself. Tying shoes, buying him stuff, trying to be anything Yuuri wants, literally giving up on everything in his life and then get back to the ice + coaching because Yuuri wants him to skate.

Part 3. So, how’s anyone seriously considering that Victor wouldn’t do the dishes for Yuuri. It’s like they completely forget that he’s loaded as fuck, so dishwasher + maid. But even if he wasn’t, he ties Yuuri’s shoes. You bet he would do the dishes ffs. But I digress. The point is that I wish everyone would show Vitya more support, pls protect my son. I’m very passionate. Tl;dr think Vitya considers himself lower than Yuuri as Yuuri does to Victor…

… then of course they figure it out, Vic finds a support system and maybe some therapy, they accept each other for who they are, flaws and all, they get married, adopt kids and more dogs, then they skated happily ever after, after Yuuri won 5 consecutive world championships. AND ALL WAS GOOD AND THEY GOT THROUGH EVERY OBSTACLE IN LIFE TOGETHER AND DIED PEACEFULLY THE SAME NIGHT, IN THEIR BED AT AGE 150 AND 154, K BYE ILY AND YOUR METAS, BLESS.

(Sorry for ramblings, I have a lot of thoughts and feels and you write metas, so I thought maybe the thoughts and feels would interest you. Sorry if it was too much, but I can’t un-send the asks. Anyway. I love ur metas they’re neat. I hope you get good grades for your homework!!)

YES. I think that Yuuri and Victor, really at the beginning of the series, have trouble seeing each other outside their own fantasies. Victor’s idea of Yuuri was the sexually active, confident, entrancing individual he encountered at the banquet. He knew Yuuri would be different sober, but he didn’t realize to what extent. Victor kept trying to get that Yuuri back (all the flirting/propositions, kind of assigning him Eros, etc), until he realized that Yuuri, like any other person, is multi-faceted. Same goes to Victor. Yuuri saw him as this untouchable god for so long that it was hard to see Victor as a flawed human being. They have their slips, but they’re getting there. 

“I could really see Victor ending up mistreating himself in trying to please Yuuri” AWESOME way of putting it! Victor totally dotes on Yuuri in such a way that suggests he’s trying to be everything Yuuri could ever want. I mean, we’ve talked about the beach scene, but I think it’s worth mentioning again. 

By offering all these options as to what Yuuri wants him to be, Victor isn’t being honest with his feelings. He’s protecting himself while also gauging how Yuuri feels about him. Victor is willing to take up any act to just be by Yuuri’s side. This poor bby is so lovesick and has no sense of self-worth. 

Although, I think that when Victor returns to skating, he’s at a point in his life where he’s ready to come back. Yeah, I think he partially does it because Yuuri wants him to, but Victor seems already have an interest in taking back his title. Yuuri and Yuri are challengers, and Victor wants to step up to that challenge. This year with Yuuri has given Victor the time he needed to start healing. It’s been beneficial to his mental–and subsequently, physical–health. But I do think that Victor is staying on as Yuuri’s coach half because he really wants to, but also half because it was Yuuri’s request. Victor’s got his work cut out for him next season, honestly. 

About the Dishcourse™, I think that’s a running joke that people starting blowing out of proportion. But yeah, Victor dotes on Yuuri hand and foot (lol) so dishcourse jokes may be a bit ooc, but it just got outta hand. That’s what jokes are, you know? Exaggerations. Everybody chill pls. 

(final note: never apologize for rambling to me, I love discussion. And thank you, I’m working hard! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و )

Quiet as a Mouse - Part 1

Pairing: Jensen x Reader

Word Count: 1,586

Summary: Jensen and his girlfriend are on a break so he’s in a bad mood. His sister drags him out shopping where he meets the reader. She ends up being someone Jensen doesn’t expect.


“Is this really necessary?” Jensen whines as he puts his sunglasses on.

“Yes!” Mackenzie says already tired of his shitty attitude.

“You’re one of my favorite people…but for the love of all things holy…shut up!”

Jensen rolls his eyes and mutters under his breath. He is not a happy camper right now. The last thing he wants to do is go shopping with his sister.

“I didn’t come home to go shopping for girly shit, ya know.”

“It’s mom’s birthday, dude! Stop being selfish.” She says shaking her head.

Jensen knows she’s right but lately he’s had a dark cloud over his head and it seems like it’s not going away anytime soon.

so, my sister is a very good playwright

and she’s been commissioned to adapt Julius Caesar for a company that does site-specific casual Shakespeare with few props, few actors, minimal costuming etc, and does it brilliantly because they have so much energy and (in my opinion) get to the heart of what Shakespeare was doing in terms of having fun with it and making his audience do so too

anyway, this JC is to be performed in Melbourne’s Queen Victoria markets, which was a decision made on the basis that this is a play whose major emotions and drama and shifts are built around public spaces, public interactions, drawing the public in

and

for no particular reason other than we had a lot of really really good female actors auditioning for our last show but we could only cast three because it was R&J and there aren’t many roles for them

they have decided it’s going to be an all-female cast, employing all the awesome female actors they want to employ

not gender-bending - they’ll still be using male pronouns for the male characters, etc

they’ll just

all be played by women

because why the hell not

and they’re already getting kick-back along the lines of 

so sexist

feminism gone too far

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF SOMEONE DECIDED TO STAGE AN ALL-MALE PERFORMANCE OF SHAKESPEARE HUH WHAT THEN

and everybody who has any tiny tiny smidgeon of knowledge about Shakespeare performance history

is not even bothering to reply

just sitting back and laughing

and watching the comment threads explode

it is good
