To: Wifetron || From: Matt

In light of all the madness that has taken over dashboards and countless tags and too many friggen hours to count, it’s time for your favourite romantic Shitposter to make some declarations. This post is from me to you! Only the entire world of hellsite-tumblr.com gets to read and react to this too. Enjoy everyone ~

@jc-drawings || Woman, there’s not enough words in the English or Polish dictionary to describe the amount of passion, friendship, love, and respect I host for you. Not enough romantically pleasing syllables to enunciate the emotions I feel inside when we flirt and trashingly tease one another. You were my first stable mate on here and someone I’ve come to cherish deeply in the end of our month long companionship we hold now.

You are brillant and sassy and witty as hell. You’re fantastically artistic and I’m always blown away by the doodles and sketches you draw. I admire your brains and talents and I’m always thirsty for more. Your happiness is infectious and your bitter anger is fearsome. You’re not a woman I want to willingly cross but you are someone I’ll fight to the ends of the world to protect. Thank you so much for being a friend and internet wife. I don’t know what I’d be doing without you.


@rebelgirlmatrix1213 || Sweetheart, you’re worth so much more than the countless stars that inhabit the multidimensional galaxies that exist. You’re a force to be reckoned with, a vast pool of potential ever waiting at your fingertips. You’re going to storm the world with your kindness and humour and I’ll get to watch from the sidelines with so much pride. You are my Commander and I am your lieutenant in this shitposting world. I will always have your back.

You will go forth and anything you do it’ll be done so well. You’re compassionate and so caring and so god damn warm in personality it’s absolutely awe-inspiring. You deserve the universe and don’t you ever forget it. I’m sure you won’t becuase you’re just as eloquently intelligent as you are comical. You can do whatever it is you dream to do. I promise.


@leavesoflothlorien || You’re an angel born to shower the world with empathy and humility. You are forged with the finest purities underneath the roughest stone. You take my breath away with just how much you care about humanity - you break and warm my heart with how much compassion drips through your veins. It’s something humanity has lost over the years. Please hold onto this. Don’t lose it too.

Your linguistics is tantalising and I want you to keep pursuing writing. Don’t give up. Look at JK Rowling. She got shot down 10 times over becoming an iconic legend for many many eras to come. Don’t sell yourself short, I promise you’re a luxury item and the rest of the world will one day see it. Keep being you. Take on the world, storm it with your kindness. I believe in you, I believe in you oh so very much.


@camphalfgalra || Darling, remind me never to piss you off. You’re an Amazonian goddess and an unstoppable survivor. Nothing will ever be able to cut you down for long - where one Maria falls ten more takes her place. Believe me when I tell you that anyone can tell your resonance and resilience is unmatched. There is no one like you and never will be again.

You leave me in awe and mild fear with your ability to rule over the very people who tried to hurt you. The strength that runs through your veins.. incredible. It takes a very unique and powerful woman to stand up to consistent death threats and other thing with such flair.

You’re so fucking strong Maria - you’re a breathtaking unstoppable force. Never forget that about yourself. Keep wearing your crown, because hunny it suits you well. I really hope to get to learn more about you and become better friends.


To You Four: Thank you for taking me in. Thank you from the deepest most bottomst parts of my heart for letting me become your friend. You have no idea how much your shaping me, how much you mean to me. You’ve showed me miracles and trials that I’ll never forget. You’ve reminded me what friendship was again, it’s something I’ll never be able to pay you back with. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I hope we’ll be friends for years to come.


To the rest of Wifetron: I’m sure you’re just as incredible, unforgettable, and talented. I’m so sorry I haven’t gotten to really meet you and talk with you yet. I hope we can change that soon. But I promise I already have your back if you find yourself in need of a friend. I mean it.

So, incidentally, my experience with the movie Megamind is that I ended up watching it backwards in a hotel once when I was younger and nothing else was on. And by “backwards” I mean, the first day I only caught the latter half of it and then it was on again the day after and I saw the first half.

That said, that one dang scene, is kind of an immortal one in my mind, because it’s one that has a lot more depth than it seems to.

The part that people often miss is that right after that pithy one-liner of how the difference between a villain and a supervillain is presentation… that whole conversation gets context.

Because Titan makes an immediate lunge for Megamind.

And immediately gets crunched by the giant head, and stuck in that situation because Megamind just drops out of the bottom, to a waiting vehicle, and maneuvers around him to focus on the actual issue: rescuing the hostage while Titan’s occupied.

That whole setup isn’t just, “watch me out-drama you”, it’s showing off an actual tactical asset.

Because Megamind as a character is someone who was always, always motivated by getting attention. The reason why Roxanne is never afraid of being his hostage isn’t because of her unshakable faith in a rescuing hero as much as it is that she knows, ultimately, what Megamind is doing is overwhelmingly a show. His atrocities are symbolic in nature. When he actually needs to take somebody out he dehydrates them into a cube for a while. And it’s not just Roxanne that calls him on this, either- Metro Man’s entire retirement scheme hinged on the idea that Megamind really didn’t need someone keeping him at bay from innocent civilians, because, as we’ve seen, innocent civilians really don’t have much to fear from him. Ultimately he is still, actually, just a kind of needy person desperately looking for validation and approval, neither of which can be provided by dead people.

But that’s not to say he can’t actually fight. Like any actual proper magician, he knows how to hold attention and an element of danger is how that works. He’s actually brilliant, and plenty capable of raising genuine hell.

However- he’s been doing this stageshow thing for ages. He’s mastered this. Titan may have him outgunned practically in every respect- but the guy has no conceivable head for subtlety.

So the real kicker to that whole setup, is this isn’t just Megamind being Megamind for the sake of drama- this is Megamind knowing exactly how easy Titan is to bait, dangling the largest trap he could possibly conceive in front of the guy, and doing it in an unapologetically glorious manner as any true performer would.

“Presentation” is not a superpower to be overlooked.

In Ghana, people are often buried in ‘fantasy coffins’. The Ga people believe life in the next world continues in the same way it did on earth, so carpenters honor the dead with custom coffins that represent their dreams, personalities, occupations, vices, or obsessions. Source Source 2 Source 3

anonymous asked:

So why is Chris Evans nicknamed Dorrito? Sorry I just don't know lol

Don’t worry, anon, I’m going to help you as best as I can.

Once upon a time - more than three years ago - the great Chris Evans was found a new nickname. After ‘Cevans’, we were all graced with the comparison of his body to a Dorito. #heart of gold and shoulder waist ratio of a dorito. It reached a peak after Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Why? Because he is the human Dorito. Look at his shoulder to waist ratio. It’s triangular.

I know right? A real Dorito. That is why every time I reblog Chris, it’s tagged as “My beloved Dorito”.

There’s a particular post on Tumblr that became so popular that the idea gained artists who began to add the Dorito!Steve Rogers or Dorito!Chris Evans to their fan works just for fun. It’s still especially featured in fanfictions.

You know what, though? The nickname became so popular that Robert Downey Jr. called Chris a “Dorito” twice during SDCC 2014. Who knows for how long it’s actually been going on? They were filming Avengers: Age of Ultron at that moment, so I’m sure the cast and crew called him Dorito a lot of time on set!

In April 2015, the Doritos brand - in promotion of Avengers: Age of Ultron - had a Steve Rogers/Captain America “Cool Ranch” bag.

And do you know how Chris reacted? Because there’s something you wanna know about him. He’s a simple guy, he loves Doritos chips. He loves them. He thought it was a life goals!

That same year, when he was promoting the movie with his fellow co-stars, he had the chance to taste his Doritos with his friend Chris Hemsworth and the video made the world go crazy.

That is how the legend of Dorito!Chris Evans was born, my friend.

Alright, kids.  Settle down, and take your seats.  It’s time for me to explain to some of you why the man above was extremely fucking important not only to the modern zombie film as we know it, but to the entire horror genre.

George A. Romero was born on February 4, 1940.  He passed away today, on July 16, 2017.  This man was truly the godfather of the modern zombie.  In 1968, George Romero and John Russo unleashed upon the world a little film called Night of the Living Dead.  This one film forever changed what a “zombie” meant in terms of horror.  Prior to this, zombies in cinema were relegated to mere background villains, and were more closely associated with their spiritual origins in Haitian Vodou.  They did not consume the brains and flesh of the living.  They did not infect others.  They did not amass into formidable hordes.

Romero imbued the creatures in his film with traits from the “ghoul” of Arabic mythology to form the template for the modern zombie, and invented the Western trope of the collapse of society under the feet of the undead.  Additionally, he was the first director to truly utilize zombies as a parable for the common tensions that separate us in our society.

Night of the Living Dead is also incredibly important to horror due to its casting.  In choosing the talented Duane Jones as the male lead, Romero had done something completely unheard of at that time: He cast a black male hero, and had him taking the lead of the situation over his white counterparts.  Such casting would continue to be a signature of Romero’s zombie films, and would help pave the way for future black actors and actresses to be considered for leading roles.

With Dawn of the Dead (1978), the “zombies in a mall” trope was first created, spurred on by a visit to the Monroeville Mall (at this time, malls were an entirely new concept to the public, so many theatergoers hadn’t even seen one yet), and a passing mention by friend Mark Mason that it would be a great place to survive in if an emergency occurred.  In the process, Romero added to the plot a subtle, underlying jab at American consumerism (pretty impressive, given that he hadn’t even planned a follow-up to Night until contacted about it by Italian horror maestro Dario Argento).  It was with this film that Romero also gave a then-up-and-coming effects artist by the name of Tom Savini the opportunity to not only act, but to serve as a stuntman–both of which he would continue to do throughout his now-legendary, multi-faceted career.

By the way, if you pay close attention to the background during the “pie fight” scene in Dawn, you might catch a glimpse of George running around in a Santa Claus outfit.

While not as revered, Day of the Dead (1985) can take a great deal of credit for creating the concept of the sympathetic zombie that still holds memories of its past.  This notion would be even further explored in Land of the Dead (2005), where the zombies are, in actuality, the true “heroes”–seeking and fighting for a place where they can find peace away from the living.

George would go on to make two more zombie films later in life: Diary of the Dead (2007), and Survival of the Dead (2009), but neither would reach the same level of reverence as his previous efforts.  In addition to his flings with the undead, Romero directed The Crazies (1973) (a very anti-military piece that can be seen as a bridge between Night and Dawn), the powerful and highly-underrated Martin (1978), and the much-applauded horror anthology Creepshow (1982).

He became a zombie boss in a DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops.  He even had a cameo in a zombie-themed episode of Disney’s kid-friendly animated series, Phineas and Ferb.  George A. Romero will always be rightfully remembered as a horror icon that shaped an entire subgenre.  Like the cinematic hordes he helped birth into the modern age of horror, he shall live on long after his passing.
