20 Behind-The-Scenes Facts About Pirates Of The Caribbean.

1. During the filming of On Stranger Tides, Johnny Depp spent over $60,000 out of his own pocket to buy waterproof jackets for 500 crew members to protect them from the cold, wet weather. 

2. While filming in London in October 2010, Johnny Depp received a letter from a local 9-year old schoolgirl, telling him her classmates needed help to ‘mutiny’ against her teachers. He turned up with almost no warning at the school in full Sparrow outfit, but advised against mutiny. 

3. In Curse Of The Black Pearl, Johnny Depp improvised many of his lines, including the notorious, “Bring me that horizon,” and Jack Sparrow’s catch phrase, “Savvy?" 

4. Depp and Verbinski have a funny way of describing Jack running away from danger. They both compared it to a “lizard running on water.” Looking back at pirates of the caribbean, we can totally see where they’re coming from.

5. The cast and crew walked away from filming with tons of “treasure.” When production wrapped, many of the people who worked on the film (including Johnny Depp) picked props out from the treasure cave to take home. According to Verbinski, not a single one of the cursed coins was left behind.

6. Geoffrey Rush was afraid that people wouldn’t notice him on screen when he and Keira Knightley were in the same scene. He came up with a solution, however. He thought that viewers watched films the same way they read books - from left to right - and thus, tried to be on the left side of the shot as much as possible so that people would notice him before they noticed Keira. 

7. Robert De Niro was originally offered the role of Captain Jack Sparrow. However, he turned down the role because he thought that the film would do poorly in box offices. 

8. Keira Knightley was only 17 years old when they started shooting the first Pirates Of The Caribbean. Because she was a minor, her mother had to accompany her to all of the shooting locations. 

9. Johnny Depp’s character, Captain Jack, is portrayed as having gold teeth in the film. The gold teeth were actually Depp’s idea, but he predicted that executives would want fewer gold teeth than he wanted. So Depp told his dentist to implant extra gold teeth as a bargaining tool. After negotiations with the film executives, Sparrow’s final number of gold teeth in the film was what Depp had envisioned all along. 

10. If you pay attention throughout The Curse Of The Black Pearl, there is a scab on Jack Sparrow’s chin that gradually gets bigger and bigger. Many thought that it was a mistake, but Depp revealed later that his was a prank he and his makeup artist had thought of together. 

11. Clothing and smears of charcoal were used to conceal Johnny Depp’s numerous tattoos. The "Jack Sparrow” tattoo on his arm in the movie is a fake, but he actually got a real replica after finishing the film, in honor of his son Jack. 

12. Originally, Johnny Depp wanted Jack Sparrow to have no nose and be afraid of silly things like pepper and the common cold. Disney rejected the idea.

 13. Jack Sparrow is known for his outrageous face makeup, but he didn’t start with that look. While filming in a cave, excessive makeup was added to all of the characters so they wouldn’t looked washed out on film. When the crew realised how cool the makeup looked on Johnny Depp, they continued to use it on him for the rest of the movie. 

14. The moment when Elizabeth kissed Jack Sparrow in Dead Man’s Chest was purposefully cut out of Orlando Bloom’s script so that the cameras could get a genuine, shocked reaction from him. 

15. The fourth installation, On Stranger Tides, was the most expensive film ever made at the time, not adjusted for inflation. The budget ran to $300,000,000. That’s more than the budget of all three Lord Of The Rings films combined.

16. Johnny Depp based his performance on Keith Richards because he thought that pirates were just 18th century versions of rockstars. 

17. The names of the three main characters are all related to birds: Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swann, and William Turner, who was a famous ornithologist. 

18. The scene where Orlando Bloom impersonates Johnny Depp’s performance was devised by Bloom who asked producer Jerry Bruckheimer if he could put it into the movie. 

19. According to the screenwriters’ commentary on the DVD, Will Turner is actually the best swordsman in the film, Barbossa and Commodore Norrington are evenly matched, and Jack Sparrow is the worst. 

20. During filming of On Stranger Tides in London a 'Jack Sparrow’ impersonator just walked onto the set. The guards did not think to ask for any ID as he looked so much like the character. 

I want to bring glam back. And not just in a small way, like owning one pair of platforms. I mean bring it all the way back, the decadence, the crazy over the edge way of living, drenching everything in glitter, wearing fur coats and ostrich feathers, fishnets and outrageous makeup in the middle of the day. That way of enjoying life appeals to me so much, just never doing anything by halves, living in a glam dream, just living.

Growing up Batty: Part 7

AN: One Part left after this!

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6


You don’t bother changing into your uniform. In fact, you’re certain that it’s better to stay in plain clothes. Your sweatpants, tee-shirt, and tennis shoes are fine for this anyway. It’s insanely easy to sneak past the guards on duty. It’s even easier to lift yourself into the AC duct and crawl your way through the building.

           It doesn’t take long to find them. You just follow the screaming. You peer through the vent down at the scene below. You’d seen pictures over the years. Your mother had shown you pictures of Harley before she’d gone insane. She had seemed so normal, and put together. It scared you, how easily she snapped.

           Then there was the Joker. You’d read every file Bruce had on the man. You’d seen the pictures. But that did nothing to prepare you for the chill that went down your spine at the sight of him. You freeze as you watch him rant, and scream. And the laugh… the laugh makes you want to throw up.

           You survey the room first. Joker is pacing erratically. He’s mumbling to himself, before he turns to yell at the person in the corner. That’s when you see her. She’s dressed in normal clothes, something the surprises you. Then you see her face, it bruised and battered, right along with the rest of her body. The Joker had used her as a human punching bag.

           For the first time, you understand. Your mother had never hated Harley. Whenever she spoke about her it was with a sad smile. You’d never understood that. How could you love someone who had hurt so many people? How could you love something that was a product of the greatest evil to ever befall Gotham?

           She’d always said her love for you was easy. If there was one thing Harley had done right, it was giving you to them. You were her daughter, she loved you no differently than your sisters.

           As for Harley… she had always described Harley as a victim. Their own parents had been abusive, and Harley had drawn most of the abuse on to herself, in an effort to protect her sister. She’d grown used to it, and had gone into psychology as a way to understand it. Somewhere along the line she had confused abuse with love. She’d been the perfect prey for Joker.

           Only now, staring at the woman, beaten and battered, did you understand. She was a victim. It didn’t make what she did right, but it explained a lot. You watch as she smiles at Joker even as he screams at her. You wince when she calls him puddin’, and you gasp when he hits her.

           That’s what gives you away. The man’s head turns towards the vent, and a sadistic smile takes over his face. You hold your breath, as he approaches, “Well, well, well… what do we have here. Has the latest little bird come to visit?”

           You feel the vent go out from under you, and you fall on to the floor. You hear something crack in your arm, and it takes everything you have not to cry out. You shift to a sitting position, and stare up at the monster.

           He grins, “And who might you be?”

           You hesitate, as Ivy’s words come back to you, he’d try and kill you. You keep your mouth shut, and a moment later his fist connects with your mouth. You take the hit with a whimper, before pushing yourself to your feet.

           You cradle your arm close to your chest, and move into a defensive position. You know how to fight, how to take down someone bigger and stronger than you. But he’s wounded you. You’re eighty-five percent sure that your arm is broken. That prevents you from flipping, crawling, and even throwing some punches.

           You stay on the defensive, dodging any more punches. But he’s sneaky, you never see the pipe coming. He gets you on the head. When you wake up, your hands are tied, and your arm hurts worse than anything you’ve ever felt. There’s blood crusted on to your face, and you can feel someone gently dabbing at the wound.

           You wince as they dab at a particularly sensitive spot. Opening your eyes, you stare at the woman hovering above you. Her blonde hair is dyed with red and blue, and her makeup is outrageous, but hiding the bruising you’re sure is there.

           You flinch away, and she smiles at you, she strokes your cheek, and simply says, “There, there, mama’s here.”

           You hear that laugh and look behind her to see Joker staring at you, and fear grips your heart, as you wonder how you’re going to get out of this one.

anonymous asked:

I'm bisexual and in the closet, and my dad is a huge conservative, right-winger who supports Trump. I'm 16, but even when I turn 18, I doubt that I'll be able to move out. I'm just so helpless and I hate his ideals and I just want to be save and happy and... Ugh. I just don't know who to talk to anymore. I'm sorry, I just need some advice

first of all I want to say I love you very much and want you to know you’re not alone. you are valid and loved and safe here. As someone in a similar situation I’ve set up some tips from my own experience:

1. set up a support system. do you have people in your life who you can trust and talk to when you need it? this can be a therapist, counselor. friend, a more open minded family member. As long as you know you can be safe talking to a person then keep them close and make sure you take them up on the offer of a talk or an excuse to get out of the house.

2. keep a journal. this doesn’t have to be a pen and paper kind of journal. just somewhere you can safely vent to and also keep track of things that trigger you. But again safety is key. there apps that look like calculators but when you open them and put in a specific kind of number it opens up a journal.

3. avoid confrontation if you can. I know it’s hard but debates are sometimes not worth having if the price is you getting yelled at or god forbid something worse.

4. take pleasure in the small things. follow people who are out and live through them for a bit, listen to some gay music, put on outrageous makeup. If it makes you happy and offers an escape and doesn’t hurt anyone it’s a good thing.

5. whatever happens or whatever he says, he is wrong. i know it doesn’t feel like it sometimes but he. is. wrong. you have to say it out-loud even if you don’t believe it in the moment. words have weight make sure yours are heavier than his.

6. take it one day at a time. it can all feel very overwhelming but I promise you you can get through this. this is temporary and one day you’ll get to be who you are and feel safe. know that I love you and wish you the very best.

Belle & Adam: 1987

Adam is the front man of Evermore, a popular glam rock band known for their outrageous makeup and power ballads. Belle writes biographies for a prestigious publishing company. Their paths cross when she gets assigned to write the pompous rock star’s memoir.  

At first, they don’t get along. Belle keeps probing for him to tell her less about his many - many - conquests and more about his childhood, and he persistently deflects.

Nobody cares about that,” he repeatedly snaps.

I care about it. What makes you assume no one else will?

Months into the writing process, after several strong drinks and an impromptu session of heated kissing on the couch in her office, he tells her about his mother - and his father. For the first time in her career of listening to people tell sad stories and then writing them down, Belle actually cries.

When they part ways, Belle to write her books and Adam to play his shows, he finds that he actually misses her. He’s never missed anyone before. Not like this. So, he does the only thing he knows how to do - he writes.

If I Can’t Love Her quickly becomes Evermore’s most successful EP to date. 

I know I’m the last person who should be talking about this since I have horrible self-esteem and confidence, but what if we didn’t care about the standards of what we should look and act like.

Hear me out.

What if we woke up one day and decided to be completely and unapologetically who we were meant to be. What if we all died our hair and colored our skin and put on makeup of outrageous colors. If we wore whatever clothes we wanted to wear, and wrote stories about whatever we wanted to write about, what beautiful creatures we would be.

Every human being is held back by standards and gender roles that try to dictate how exactly they should look and act and speak and dress. Imagine if one day you woke up and forgot all of that. What great things we could do. If we woke up and didn’t care about what the world said was pretty, what beauty we could possess.

If we weren’t held by these standards, there would be nothing holding us back from being completely ourselves.

And that is the way I want to live.

Think all mascaras are the same? Think again, friend-o. Wands come in all shapes and sizes, and for good reason: They all do something different. In this Sephora Glossy post, we shout out beauty brands showing us never-before-seen winks. BECKY PEDERSON

PILE ON VOLUME
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
There’s a reason the tagline for this baby is, “Bigger. Blacker. Badder.” The triple-black pigments in this formula yield some of the darkest lashes we’ve seen. The high-tech brush separates to hit every lash and build without clumping, so if you’re into intense eye-batting, this one’s for you.

FAUXGET ABOUT FALSIES
Tarte Best in Faux Lash Extending Fibers
Inarguably, falsies look great on everyone, but not all of us are down with putting glue on our lids. Enter: Tarte. The nylon fibers in the mascara primer build on and sculpt natural lashes so they look full and fluttery. The traditional-shaped wand is easy to wedge on the base of your lashes and pull through to the tip for a flashier look.

FAN OUT SANS FALLOUT
Lancôme Grandiôse
Ok, so, you know how horses have enviably long manes and eyelashes? Like, if horses were people, they’d be the prettiest people in the room, and you’d spend all your time secretly trying to mimic their looks? Well, Lancôme can’t help you with the mane, but they can help with the lashes: Their patented swan-neck brush is designed to intensify and fan out from root to tip without leaving behind mascara flakes.

WELL-ROUNDED DRAMA
SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Curl Dramatic Volume Mascara
If you are plagued with short, thin, or stick-straight lashes, this is the mascara for you. Unlike typical curling wands that are concave and sometimes hard to wield, this wand is shaped like a rounded hairbrush so you can hit every lash from a horizontal angle. It provides so much volume, it’s like getting a blowout for your lashes.

NATURALLY INTENSE
Josie Maran Argan Black Oil Mascara
Leave it to Josie Maran to reinvent the mascara formula. Hers contains natural argan oil and bamboo to boost lash strength and prevent breakage—all while promising up to 24 hours of wear. Also, the innovative five-sphered brush volumizes and curls for maximum sass.

ashbooxoxo  asked:

How did you find your SD; as an black female, I'm having a hard time finding someone to bite :/

Sad to say but you have to accommodate to white peoples beauty standards. My weave is always flawless, edges and leave out blended. I know my hair looks good if I ask my SD for money for new extensions and they didn’t know I wear extensions. I’m tall and skinny, I try to play down my body until I know the man I’m dealing with doesn’t mind curves. My measurements are 34, 27, 40 so my hips are unavoidable. So far it hasn’t been a problem and men are outrageously turned on. My makeup has to be out of this world, outfits slayed. Being black you really have to one up white girls and have little room for mistake or to be unkept. This is first nature to me, I came out the womb glammed up so its not much stress for me. But try playing around with your look.

Now this is actually a pretty short set of notes. I’m up to making notes on season three now, and they’re just getting longer and longer. I shudder to think what my notes on season five will be like. Anyway, that’s a long time off posting. Have some more season one notes.

i love amy winehouse so much dude. i love her. i still can’t believe she’s gone.

she was distinctive without being gimmicky, she was bold without being showy, she was alluring without pandering to the male gaze

she made the music she wanted to make and had the look she wanted to have. she was always herself. it was so authentic, as authentic as pop music can get, i think (though i suppose the value of ‘authenticity’ is kind of disputable w/r/t music)

but she was so constantly the butt of a joke. oh, that outrageous hair! her makeup is trashy! what a junkie! what an awful role model!

i hope there are smoky jazz clubs in heaven because thats where she belongs, on top of a piano, singing 'tears dry on their own’ to the heavenly host. and i hope she shows up late. thats just who amy winehouse is.
