or the greatest tv game show

10

The #FIDMMuseum in L.A. had a great exhibit featuring designs from period & contemporary TV shows on last summer. They displayed costumes from some of the greatest shows during ~peak tv~ and gave insight into the costume designers vision. Being so close to outfits faves have worn is seriously mind blowing - check out the FIDM’s website for current exhibits or jut stop by the gift shop for dope AF souvenirs!

I’m Guy Fieri and we’re rolling out, looking for the greatest diners, drive-ins, and dives at the end of the universe.

There are 42 flavors in Flavortown.

So that whole ‘Spider-Man is about youth’ thing

I know some people place a shitton of stock into the words of the professionals so let me just throw a few things at you.


Peter David is one of, possibly the, most accomplished writer under Marvel’s employ in terms of the breadth and acclaim garnered by his bibliography. This includes the critically acclaimed Death of Jean DeWolff storyline and the fan favourite Spider-Man 2099 series, which is about a very much ADULT character who is the Spider-Man of his timeline. He doesn’t think Spider-Man is about youth or that there is anything wrong with him being married. In fact he stated that the series as a whole spinning its wheels from the time of the Master Planner Trilogy up until the marriage when something really different happened. He began reading Spider-Man at some point before the original publication of Amazing Spider-Man #100 back in the early 1970s.

J.M. DeMatteis has written both critically acclaimed Spider-Man stories and stories which are the most layered and dense in terms of their theme and depth of human psychology. This has included the iconic Kraven’s Last Hunt. He also does not think Spider-Man is about youth or that he should not be married. In fact he made the marriage a vital part of his most revered storyline and utilized it a lot in his various other stories. He began reading Spider-Man at some point during the original John Romita Senior run of Spider-Man.

Tom DeFalco is former Editor-in-Chief of Marvel comics, former editor of Spider-Man, has written a very well regarded and vitally important run of Amazing Spider-Man in the 1980s and followed that up with two more runs (on Spectacular and Amazing Spider-Man) in the 1990s before embarking on a near (unbroken) 150 issue long run on fan favourite Spider-Girl. The latter by the way is currently the longest running (at least without substantial gaps) Spider-Man spin-off character and also the female Marvel character who’s had the most consistently longest running solo title ever.

 He is also the author of the well reviewed 2001 book ‘Spider-Man the Ultimate Guide’ which was for it’s time the single most comprehensive information book about Spider-Man ever published. During his tenure as writer of Amazing Spider-Man he and Ron Frenz he established Mary Jane Watson as knowing Spider-Man’s secret identity and introduced readers to Spidey’s black costume, later establishing it as an alien symbiote. These and other elements from his run have made their way into other media and been constants in the Spider-Man series ever since.

Tom DeFalco has inferred on more than one occasion that his favourite era of Spider-Man was when Spider-Man was in High School. This makes a certain amount of sense because he first began reading Spider-Man in the early 1960s…specifically with Amazing Fantasy #15.

But did you know that Tom DeFalco ALSO doesn’t think Spider-Man is about youth. In fact he once specifically said Spider-Man isn’t about youth but responsibility, going on to say that the more responsibility Spider-Man has the more interesting the character is. When Spider-Man was originally married in the 1980s Tom DeFalco was against it…at first. He then changed his mind and became one of its biggest champion among other Marvel creators. 

Tom DeFalco’s disbelief in the ideas that Spider-Man is about youth and that the marriage was antithetical to the character are evident in the fact that he proposed and implemented a storyline intended to make Spider-Man a parent and his creation of Spider-Girl (Peter Parker’s daughter) was partially done as a fulfillment of this idea.


Finally there is another Marvel creator to be discussed.

His name is Stan Lee.

Stan Lee is the co-creator  of Spider-Man. He also co-created the Fantastic Four, the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, the Mighty Thor, Ant-Man, the Wasp, the Avengers and many other Marvel characters and properties which have endured to this very day.

His Spider-Man credits include literally the first 100 issues of Amazing Spider-Man, Amazing Fantasy #15, and various Spider-Man annuals.

Within those issues are stories which are regarded as undeniably the most iconic in Spider-Man’s history and the unquestionably most adapted source material for various Spider-Man media adaptations.

They include:

The origin of the character adapted and referenced in…pretty much every film and TV show about the character

The Master Planner Trilogy, regarded by many as the greatest Spider-Man story of all time. It inspired parts of the Playstation game Spider-Man 2000 and an episode of the Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series, both of which were critically acclaimed.

Amazing Spider-Man #42 the introduction of Spider-Man’s most famous love interest Mary Jane, an introduction so iconic it’s been homaged, parodied and referenced ad infinitum and adapted into two different cartoon shows

Spider-Man No More which once again has been referenced numerous times in various comics and other media (Marvel affiliated or otherwise) due to how iconic it is and was the major inspiration for Spider-Man 2, regarded as the best Spider-Man film of all time as well as at the time one of the best superhero/comic book films of all time.

Stan Lee for a number of years also wrote the Amazing Spider-Man Newspaper Strip which has remained in syndication ever since.


Stan Lee has to my knowledge NEVER  claimed Spider-Man is about youth.

It was in Stan Lee’s run that Spider-Man AGED  to the point where he graduated high school and attended college. 

In a letters page Stan Lee in response to a statement about Spider-Man’s hypothetical child joked that the character wasn’t even married yet.

During Stan Lee’s run Peter Parker considered proposing to his girlfriend Betty Brant in only issue #30 of the series. Much later around issue #100 Peter was seriously considering marrying his girlfriend Gwen Stacy and was making plans for the sake of that future.

Stan Lee has gone on record numerous times that he created Gwen Stacy to be Peter’s ultimate love interest and because he believed she’d make the perfect wife for him.

Int he 1980s Stan Lee when asked by a fan if Peter and Mary Jane could get married opted to make that happen in the Newspaper strip and inquired about making it happen in the comics too.

Before the abolition of the marriage in the comics, Stan Lee in an interview was asked if he felt that Spider-Man being married in any way negatively affected the character. He didn’t feel that was the case.

After the marriage was abandoned in the main comics universe the newspaper strip did the same thing…temporarily. It eventually went back to featuring a married Spider-Man and has remained so ever since.


Now…call me crazy…but it seems to me that all of that would seem to possibly imply that maybe…just maybe…

SPIDER-MAN ISN’T SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT FUCKING YOUTH!!!!!!!!

  • Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you.
  • “Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
  • “A man who won’t listen can’t hear.”
  • “Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.”
  • “The man who fears losing has already lost.”

  • “Power resides only where men believe it resides. […] A shadow on the wall, yet shadows can kill. And ofttimes a very small man can cast a very large shadow.”

  • “A woman’s life is nine parts mess to one part magic, you’ll learn that soon enough…and the parts that look like magic turn out to be the messiest of all.”
  • “A bruise is a lesson… and each lesson makes us better.”

WELLLL that shows up strangely. Tumblr, stop being weird.

The show I can quote the most from is definitely Friends. I could probably quote you something from every episode. I had a buddy in highschool that owned a Friends Trivia game and when we played together I won every single time. My mother and I can wipe the floor with anyone at Friends trivia. XD

Thanks for the ask!

The 30 Greatest Fox Shows Ever according to TV Line (x)

30. BONES (2005-present)

Fox proved it could play the procedural game with this forensic crime drama, starring Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz as a mismatched crime-fighting duo solving FBI cases. They’re opposites — she’s a socially awkward lab rat; he’s an impatient cop who goes with his gut — but they developed one of TV’s best will-they-or-won’t-they relationships. And their easy chemistry has carried Bones for eleven seasons now, with a 12th and final season on tap for next year.

Ignorance isn’t Bliss

Summary: hunger games au where Dan and Phil meet in the ring and happen to fall in love with eachother at a deadly cost.

TW: major character death, minor mention of suicidal thoughts

tags: angst, hungergames!au

authors note: you guys are going to hate me for this. 

___

Our love story was a tad bit unconventional. I mean, being surrounded by a figurative and literal clock of death 24/7 doesn’t really let you have a lot of cute moments right? The Hunger Games to put it bluntly, sucked. This whole damn capital sucks and making children kill each other sucks. However what sucks the most is the fact that it so happens I’m in love with someone in the ring. What sucks even more is the fact that I may or may not be the one that has to kill him.

"It's just a story."

One thing you should never say is “It’s just a story.” Because there is so much to learn about life from fiction.

For example, Doctor Who.

Even the people that worked on the show learned something

Lord of the Rings taught us a lot too.

So did Harry Potter

Oh and Merlin

Bit of Sherlock

Star Wars

and the Hunger Games too

The Fault in Our Stars is a great story with beautiful words

Even Divergent

Even Supernatural

That’s the thing. I’m sick of people saying that we’re wasting our lives on this stuff, or that our society is “brainwashed” by television. We learn from these books and films, so much more than we do at school. I wouldn’t be the same person I am today without these stories. Fiction can harbor the greatest of wisdom if the story is good enough to make us feel.

Rest In Peace, Dean Winchester

Goodbye to the Metallica humming 26 year old who listened to the “greatest hits of the mullet rock”, hung out with a reaper for a day, died over 100 times, befriended an angel who raised him from Hell, won a Japanese TV game show, pretended to be Clint Eastwood literally, got high off a burger and befriended a vampire who hitched a ride out of Purgatory.

Goodbye to the boy I have seen grow up through the years. 

Goodbye to the boy who always wanted to please his dad.

Goodbye to the boy who always looked out for his baby brother.

Goodbye to the boy who put family first.

Goodbye to the boy with the green eyes.

Even though his soul is keeping his body functional, that does not mean that Dean Winchester, himself, is alive. His soul is tainted with a darkness, a darkness that is reflected in his eyes. Dean is not himself, because he has no emotion now. He doesn’t care for Led Zeppelin or pulling pranks on Sam. He cares for murdering people and possibly serving Crowley, his King.

Dean is with us no more. Demon!Dean, however, is alive and kicking. 

He is alive, but we may still have a chance to bring back Dean. However, for the time being, all we have is a demon (we don’t know how long they’ll drag this character-plot line out). We know Sam won’t kill him, God (heh) knows what Castiel’s going to do…

For all we know the real, self-sacrificing jerk we all know and love is still in there. Being tortured by his own, literal, demons. Jimmy said that being possessed by an angel is like being strapped to a comet, then what the hell is it like being possessed by a demon? Given, Dean is not possessed, he is transformed. Now he has this sour soul brewing inside him; this demonic spirit. That alongside with his could-be-saved-soul, fighting each other. 

So goodbye to my darling Dean Winchester. Thank you for making lame pop culture references and laughing at them, for loving Star Trek and LARPing for fun. Thank you for making all of us feel so damn happy to see you smile like you mean it.

Rest in peace, Dean Winchester.

wuekka  asked:

Wait, wait!...You're watching/have watched Korra? :D

Do I watch it?! Who do you think this is in this picture?!

I guess I don’t talk about it very much, but when you get right down to it, @michaeldantedimartino and @bryankonietzko’s Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra may in fact be the greatest children’s cartoon series EVER. I’m shocked that they managed to exist in today’s cutthroat “one season means ten episodes” TV era—and that both were allowed to put out satisfactory conclusions (even if Korra’s was inexplicably bumped from broadcast). The entire mythos is so good that I think it can’t even be appreciated properly. If it’d come out in the 80s, we’d have multiple video games, trading cards (with stickers and holograms), multiple series of action figures, lunch boxes, novelizations, movies (I mean good movies), and (and seriously, this is my dream) an entire theme park. THIS SHOW WAS MADE TO HAVE AN APA-FLYIN’ THEME PARK, VAATU DARN IT! That it doesn’t is criminal. The world was both unready and past ready for the Last Airbender universe. Honestly, I feel like we as a people failed the show, and for that we should apologize to M&B. Truly, we were unworthy.
