pointless post is pointless

honestly, why are all the dorian gray movies so damn obsessed with decadence and vice and thriller/horror tropes when the book is so obsessed with art

where’s my arty dorian gray film dripping with wide shots of basil’s garden in the rain, and profusions of flowers and colour and paint, which uses interesting frames and dialogue and shots and refuses to give the viewer a comfortable moral angle but is never, ever gaudy

where’s the dorian gray film that’s indisputably art

  • human kindergarten: rain, rain, go away, come again another day.
  • Vulcan kindergarten: rain is condensed liquid water that has become too heavy for the atmosphere and falls to the earth in order to replenish the ecosystem. singing songs to make it go away is illogical and ultimately detrimental to the environment.
  • Klingon kindergarten: you would let a little fall of rain stop you?? rain happens to remind us that you must always be prepared for action, Emperor Kahless did not flinch at the rain nor would any TRUE Klingon. any child who does not play outside in the rain will surely bring dishonor on their family if not corrected!!
  • Cardassian kindergarten: what rain. there is no rain. the illusion of rain is a conspiracy made up by traitors and those who would destroy the Cardassian Union. the State entirely denies the existence of rain, now will you believe what you perceive or what the State tells us. surely, you're not a traitor, are you. :)))
  • Ferengi kindergarten: oh wow, rain again. it must be a day that ends in Y.

Looking over some screencaps from the TV Movie the other day, I started asking myself how the initial confusion over the colour of the Doctor’s coat ever came about. I mean, look; it’s green (though not bottle green as it’s usually described; to me it looks more like a very dark olive green) in almost every light:

Then I remember that this was pre-DVDs and high-res and the costume being on display and that it looks brown

almost

every

frickin’

photograph

(There are a handful in which it looks green but those weren’t really seen back then)

It’s fascinating (to me, anyway) how one fabric can change colour so dramatically.

Honestly everybody likes to fucking go off on Shane Dawson for doing blackface and all the other problematic shit he did even years after he apologised and stopped doing this but when it comes to this ugly fucker Onision who literally transports minors/barely legal teens to other states just to fuck them, talked about how he wanted to chain a 19 year old in his basement while he has his two kids at home and who constantly harasses other YouTubers, all you hear is cricket noises

I don’t always just roll out of bed and go to work, but when I do…I use a filter for my pictures. Dirty hair: ✔ Remnants of yesterday’s eye makeup: ✔ Keeping it classy over here. 🙄

I’m leaving early today because I have a crazy-long day tomorrow. Counting down the minutes until I’m on my bike!
