queen of my life

the sound of music is so iconic

like

  • the nuns roasting maria in three part harmony
  • ‘the dress. you’ll have to put on another one before meeting the children’
    ‘when we enter the abbey our worldly clothes are given to the poor’
    ‘what about this one?’
    ‘the poor didn’t want this one’
  • all seven children bursting into tears at dinner while Maria sips her tea
  • ‘God bless whats his name’ (ten minutes later) ‘KURT! that’s the one I left out! God bless Kurt.’
  • maria passive aggressively praying about Liesl as she climbs through the window
  • tbh Captain Von Trapp dragging everyone around him at every possible moment like
  • ‘you flatter me captain’ ‘oh I’m sorry, I meant to accuse you’ *AIR HORN SOUNDS*
  • ‘I’m not finished yet!’
    ‘OH YES YOU ARE, CAPTAIN.’

    ‘FRAULEIN’
  • liesl rolling her eyes at kurt during the blueberry/strawberry scene
  • honestly the love story I didn’t quite get as a kid but I’m SHOOK
  • when the baroness is trying to get the captain back on track but he just interrupts her and is like ‘there’s no use’
  • BUT WHEN THE BARONESS SAYS ‘well, she’ll never be a nun’ the look of SHOCK on his face like it honestly never occurred to him that Maria was in love with him too
  • so of course hes like ‘I must find her and kiss her immediately’
  • Von Trapp ripping the nazi flag in half like YES BINCH
  • THE MOST UNDERRATED SCENE THOUGH IS AFTER THE NAZIS RUN TO THEIR CARS TO CHASE THE VON TRAPPS AND THE SCENE SWITCHES TO THE TWO NUNS
  • ‘reverend mother, I have sinned’
    ‘I too, reverend mother’
    *they both hold up coils from the nazi’s cars*

anyway this movie is the best and I love it

Girls, we do, whatever it will take, cause girls don’t want, we don’t want our hearts to break, in two, so it’s better to be fake, can’t risk losing in love again babe. // My love, he makes me feel like nobody else, nobody else, but my love, he doesn’t love me, so I tell myself, I tell myself.

How to Be a Heartbreaker (Marina and the Diamonds) // New Rules (Dua Lipa)

People don’t miss the drugs. You won’t hear someone say, “Man, I really miss heroine.”

You hear people talk about how it made them feel, and that’s what they miss.

it’s the same way with people I think. You don’t always miss the person, you just miss the way they made you feel.

I have such an influence on so many, and that makes me very responsible. I have to take that seriously. I’m an honorable woman anyway. I think I’ve made some stupid choices, but I’ve learned from them. And now I’m making really smart choices. Of course, I’ll make mistakes. I guess I just ask everyone that if I do make a mistake, just know that I’m human.

How to feel like an ancient empress

*Have good posture

*Give yourself a facial massage

*Speak with confidence–no one has the right to overpower your voice

*Rub a body oil into your skin when you get out of the bath

*Use a face oil with your moisturizer

*Wear a watch and be punctual

*Listen to those in need

*Clean and declutter your space

lena headey is the most incredible actress

she doesn’t need hair, makeup, or costume to completely change who she is, the person she is

and yes she’s an actress and it’s her job but HOLY HELL she’s god tier (and just…. DOESN’T have an emmy?? like who’s in charge here?)

just look at her in character as cersei:

and then, still in costume but out of character:

a comPLETELY different entity (i honestly think she’s unrecognisable as cersei)


THESE ARE ALL THE SAME WOMAN

it’s the way she moves her mouth?? and her gait?? and just everything holy guacamole

she has just,, been a diFFerent person?? in all of these gifs?? hOW? these are from only like 4 OF HER PIECES OF WORK

tldr; lena headey is an actual chameleon as well as being the most beautiful angel and all around lovely human and deserves all the awards

“I’m Zimbabwean American. For me, I grew up knowing the special power of the African. And their powerful expression of self, and how that is not backward. It’s just different from what mainstream shows us. So to see it on this sort of scale, to me, it’s just so ready and so overdue to me. Because that, to me, is what the African is - we’re very underestimated and we’re also underrepresented.”

[Danai Gurira on “How Black Panther is Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen”]
