What did the Romans ever do for us? by Tony
Via Flickr:
Pedastal for an Egyptian Obelisk re-erected in the Hippodrome of Constantinople . The marble pedestal had bas-reliefs dating to the time of the obelisk’s re-erection in Constantinople. On one face Theodosius I is shown offering the crown of victory to the winner in the chariot races, framed between arches and Corinthian columns, with happy spectators, musicians and dancers assisting in the ceremony. In the bottom right of this scene is the water organ of Ctesibius and on the left another instrument.

Straight White Boy Problem #980

i HATE pressuring my bros to do things but when Luke lost my Raybans, I made him venmo me like two hundred dollars so I could buy a new pair lmao what a bro Luke lost them at a football game but I’m thinking his gf stole them bc it’s something she would do… honestly DANIELLE is an absolute bitch and doesn’t let Luke hang out with the boys. what’s worse is that Luke puts Danielle on a pedastal but she doesn’t even reciprocate half of the affection Luke gives her! I feel bad…Luke is madly in love with this girl but she doesn’t treat him the same way…should I tell my bro I have a problem with his gf or should I just let my bro be happy? I want him to be happy in the end but I don’t want my bro to get hurt down the road ….

I’m still kind of upset because Ruby actually had times where she and Penny talked and Penny had gained her trust enough to tell her about the robot secret. Penny was such a complex character, she was made to be a soldier but had her own desires. She had some mystery surrounding her as well. Who was that man who clenched his fist when she died? Her creator? Maybe. We don’t know for sure.

Alright now lets take a look at Pyrrha. If I had to describe her, honestly, all I can think of is her pining over Jaune and being a good fighter. “oh but she had problems because she felt so isolated from everyone and put on a pedastal’. Is…that it? I just couldnt seem to find why everyone was so torn over her death, you can have a favorite character, but we hardly saw any bonding between Pyrrha and her teammates, maybe a scene or two? And why were Ruby’s eyes triggered when she saw Pyrrha die? The most interaction ive seen between these two were maybe a ‘hey’ or 'thanks’.

So we go into volume 4, and Ruby is having nightmares about Pyrrha. Not a SINGLE mention of Penny until chapter 10, which is brought up by Jaune. And Ruby doesnt seem to show any grief for her other than maybe that once where she didnt even cry, she just had a sad look on her face that lasted maybe 15 seconds. Oh yeah lets have nightmares over Pyrrha but not anything towards Penny…or her, yknow…TEAM. Maybe shes holding it all in and will eventually burst, but if Ruby goes on like this, cheerful most of the time, her grief being spoken by other characters, pfft.

Great. Writing. Guys.

Mario may be everyone elses's hero, but Luigi is Mario's hero! :D

Absolutley!

Luigi may admire Mario because of the heroic deeds he’s done; but Mario admires Luigi just for what he’s had to go through.

I believe the most challenging thing you can ever encounter is yourself. Luigi always suffered confidence issues. He put Mario on a pedastal multiple times, because Mario has done so many great deeds and saved many lives. To him, Mario was the definition of a hero that everyone expected.

I’ve delved into this more deeply in a different post. Check it out if you wish)

Then came the games during the Year of Luigi; more specifically, Dream Team. In the game, Luigi seems to develop way more certainty of himself than ever before. He realises that he can be his own definition of a hero.

And that’s what Mario admires about Luigi. Almost all of us go through times where we’re unsure of ourselves or what our purpose is in the world, and I feel like Luigi represents that. Mario can be confident and say that he rescues so many people, but he greatly admires how Luigi has stayed so strong through everything, despite being so unsure of himself. Luigi kept on persisting, despite those who mocked him and had little faith in him. And Luigi proved them all wrong.

That, in Mario’s opinion, is a true hero.

You can take a shower and put on something of Eddie’s. 

The Path, S01E08 (The Shore) vs S01E09 (A Room of One’s Own)

By request of @elephantandthedove

People need to chill about Emma. Like, I know some put her on a pedastal, where, granted, she doesn’t belong, but like this shit needs to stop. After everything people have been saying about her, after trying to find the smallest fault and turning it into this huge we hate Emma Watson thing, a furry? Really? Like really? Eddie Redmayne said he loved Nala and Maid Marian. Anna Kendrick said Robin Hood was quite sexy. Do we think they’re furries? No, no we do not, do we. Chill. She’s a human just like all of us fuck-ups. Just chill like. Leave the girl alone. Focus on the real monsters in Hollywood, notm some girl that’s trying to do some good, whatever way she knows. This goes out to all others people treat this way

Okay so let me just get this off my chest before it kills me…

Arden Cho. Arden freaking Cho!!!!

This woman has done nothing but dedicate her time and energy into working for and promoting this shitty ass show…the way she talks about it all the time! how much she loves it and she keeps encouraging everybody to watch it…She talks about how awesome the cast is, the crew, the producers, the writers…she’s constantly going on and on about how great the show is etc

And what the hell does she get in return?! Discrimination!!! Discrimination because of her race and her colour!!!….things she has no control of

Its bad enough that the fandom constantly puts allison on a freaking pedastal that she doesnt deserve to be on…and treat kira like garbage but now the writers/producers and jeff freaking davis is doing it too!!!

Crystal left the show…after signing on to be the lead female character….knowing damn well she’d be expected to be there for more than 3 seasons…Arden has even now still expressed her willingness to be in the show after everything she’s been through!

But still who gets more attention and praise?? And who gets written off for no reason??

Kira has been an interesting and amazing character………………………………..

But a dead character gets more appreciation

a dead character gets more love 

a dead character gets more credit for saving the pack

a dead character gets more screentime

a dead character is talked about more

a dead freaking character evokes more emotion in her boyfriend than her in the episode where she leaves the show indefinitely

And why?? because that dead character is freaking white and she’s not

you did good here, bellamy

or: why this princess and her knight meta espoused by rothenberg and taken up by the fandom is ridiculous, vaguely racist, vaguely classist, and dumb:

  • bellamy and clarke are supposed to be equals
  • the very very basic tenants of their friendship and relationship are that they came from two wildly different lives on the ark, were thrown together into this impossible situation on the ground, and both indvidually became leaders, and came to trust and rely upon each other
  • their class differences are important because both of them had to learn to look past it, and it was a critical part of their arcs, individually and together
  • there’s already been meta written on season two putting clarke up on a pedastal, writing her as very white savior colonialist so i won’t reiterate that
  • but the act of putting clarke up on this pedastal has led to the writers and thereby the fandom demoting bellamy, down to her “knight”
  • which has very racist undertones – the man of color being subservient to the white woman when once he was her equal?
  • and because racism and classism often intersect, it also has classist undertones - the lower-class one isn’t allowed to keep his leadership position; he’s seen as a servant to the royalty of the upper-class (knight vs princess - these are not equal standings)
  • the entire POINT and BEAUTY and MAGIC of bellarke was how they were EQUALS - different, but important, both of them better together
  • bellamy had flaws clarke didnt and vice versa, that was the whole POINT of having two leaders; with just one or the other things went bad
  • bellamy is not and should not be the ~knight~ to clarke’s princess
  • he is the heart to her head; he is the king to her queen
  • they are equals
  • rothenberg sucks

What the hell happened over there Coulson? You said Ward wasn’t a problem anymore!

My guess is, whatever Malick wanted on that planet, hitched a ride back using Ward’s body.

Huh, okay. I don’t care what Ward did, nobody deserves to have their body used as a host for some alien parasite. It’s just walking around the streets with his face? And it remembered me? What the hell was that? This is just, disgusting, and wrong. We have to stop it!

We don’t know how. We have no idea what this thing is. Fitz set Will on fire, watched the body burn up, and not even that killed it.

So we find a way to extract it. Take it out of Ward and contain it, until we know how.

And if Ward’s still alive when we get it out of him?

I don’t know. We have to find the thing first. We’ll deal with that when we get to it.

*Hey there, I just wanted to say thanks so much for making this blog, it's really awesome and well-made. As a ToriGorey shipper, it's nice to find a good blog who supports it and backs it up well with canon facts. I just had a really nasty encounter with a popular Undertale FaceBook page just because I said I didn't like Soriel and they basically lashed out at me and threatened to ban me. And they've been doing this for a while too. So thanks for this blog, it really is wonderful.*

You are welcome and thank you for the compliments.

The most an Asgoriel shipper will do: “Um actually, what really happened was this.” *Posts evidence with sources and links.*

The most a Soriel crackshipper will do: “DID YOU JUST SAY MY PERFECT AMAZING NOTHING ABSOLUELTY WRONG SHIP IS BAD?! WEELL WE’RE MORE POPLAR AND ASGORE DESERVES TO DIE! TORIEL DID NOTHING WRONG AND DESERVES THE HIGHEST OF PEDASTALS! SANS IS SUCH A SEXY BEAST AND I WANT TO HAVE HIS BABIES. ALSO APPARENTLY I USE A CRACKSHIP AS A COPING MECHANISM INSTEAD OF SOMETHING HEALTHY! *Insert other poorly written excuses here.*

It is honestly sad how different the two groups are.

Confession

The shit I dont get about the black community is how much we glamorize and put thugs on pedastals. What’s prompting me to make this confession is the reaction of black twitter after Kodac Black (spelling?) Was realesed from prison. Like goddamn, it was jut a few days ago the video of him rapping about how he don’t fuck with dark bitches and only fuck with the light bitches came to light yet he still has an army of black women supporting him. Damn near every black girl I know in real life and on Instagram has some shit about how Kodac is their husband and how he needs to be freed. You best believe all these black men that are rejoicing wouldn’t be doing the same for a black woman like Kodac. they would trample that woman’s name, but it doesn’t matter what a black man does because he will still be seen as someone deserving of respect. The guy is a criminal with a shit load of criminal charges yet so many people idolize his ass. I’m so fucking done man😑

I just finished watching the PBS special on Hamilton and I’m honest to god crying. Now that could be because the songs always get me but I think it’s because this documentary was THAT GOOD!

It expressed everything I believe when it comes to why I study history, why it’s important. And most importantly that history is fascinating!

It expressed why this musical is so important and what it did for people in terms of showing that historical figures are human. They did good things but they also made mistakes. They were real people. And it’s important to take those figures off their pedastals and see them for who they were: human.

I loved seeing how this story affected the cast. You can see how their characters have changed them and how much of an emotional impact telling their stories had on them. I love that. Lin gets so emotional about Hamilton and I love that.

I loved the final scene while “Who lives who dies who tells your story” plays it shows Lin staring at a statue of Hamilton.

I love that Hamilton’s story was told. This documentary was really good you guys.
