anonymous asked:

I just watched one of your favourite movies, The Man From Nowhere. Can you recommend some similar movies or dramas?

Oooooooh yes, I can! ;) How about My Beautiful Bride, Cruel City / Heartless City, City Hunter and maybe Healer? If you’re interested in a woman as a lead in an action drama, I would like to recommend Killer Girl K / Little Girl K.

As for movies… maybe the Ruroni Kenshin trilogy is something you might want to try. If you like So Ji Sub, A Company Man is another action filled movie about a lone wolf.

klance fic rec list

i’m really lazy so this is super belated, BUT i’ve finally made a klance fic rec list.

i have a Thing about established relationship fic and WIPs, so you’ll find neither on this list. if that’s your thing, apologies! otherwise, my standards are pretty high for enjoyable fic, so i hope you enjoy!

also, i tried to avoid recommending too many of the mega-popular fics within the fandom (highest kudos/views/etc.) mostly because they are so easy to find, and i wanted to give some of the lesser viewed fics some attention. that doesn’t mean i don’t enjoy some of the most viewed fics in the fandom, though!

starlight - this fic does a great job of flipping the “friends trying to get other friends together” trope on its head. on-spot characterizations with lance really trying to do the right thing, and failing.
word count: 7719
rating: T

we’ll make it, you and me - because everyone needs near-death fic in their lives.
word count: 6421
rating: Tish
(warning for violence/injury)

what are you willing to do? - there isn’t enough smut of keith and lance fucking in their lions to ever truly satisfy me but this helps to ease the hole in my heart
word count: 3859
rating: E

somewhere i have never traveled - i am a sucker for some good postmodern structuring, and this fic delivers beautifully. lots of feels between two stupid boys in love.
word count: 4257 
rating: T

and i’ll keep you a daydream away - because everyone needs some parks and rec AU in their lives. very humorous!
word count: 2952 
rating: G

bonding time - i know you’re here for explicit recs so just take this heat!keith and enjoy it and its sequel, you fucking pervert
word count: 16416
rating: E

we’ll be counting stars - college AU with keith being a pining, ridiculous mess.
word count: 2958
rating: T

sweet like honeysuckle late at night - featuring prime banter between pidge and lance, along with some humorous porn. (not between pidge and lance. that’d be weird for a klance rec list.)
word count: 4838
rating: E

to catch a thief - a cute, flirty AU with lance as an art thief and keith as a cop.
word count: 5176
rating: T

pepsicola - really endearing rivals-to-friends-to-lovers fic that runs alongside canon.
(also this is inspired by phee’s art and that’s just lovely)
word count: 10320
rating: T
(warning for violence/injury)

the little things - cute fic of klance through hunk’s pov!
word count: 1675
rating: G

rapid escalation - wherein keith is oblivious to lance’s crush. really adorable and accurate characterization!
word count: 3095
rating: M

the benefits of afternoon tea - lance and hunk in a tea shop!! and keith is their server!!!
word count: 1185
rating: G

take the easel way out - this fic had me at “keith is a nude model for lance’s figure drawing class and lance is a flustered mess because of it”
word count: 4093
rating: M

it’s quite bizarre, and will remain this way - THEY’RE SPACE MUSEUM VOLUNTEERS and it is cute as fuck
word count: 16588 rating: T

with quiet words i’ll lead you in - beautifully well-done fic that explores the darker side of being part of voltron.
word count: 5217
rating: T

after doing this i have come to the conclusion that there is not enough porn in this fandom yet. get on it, fanfic authors

Never Watched Doctor Who?

My list of the stories from each series you need to see to get a feel for the show (not necessarily the best episodes). None of them are instrumental as part of any long story arc so won’t give spoilers for that and they all show a different aspect of what Doctor Who is

Series 1 - Father’s day; a glimpse into the perils of changing the past

Series 2 - The Girl in the Fireplace; a complicated love story

Series 3 - Human Nature/The Family of Blood; another complicated love story

Series 4 - The Doctor’s Daughter; ‘a man who never would’

Series 4 Specials - The Waters of Mars; a gripping base under siege episode that shows the doctor his limits

Series 5 - Vincent and the Doctor; a fantastic yet tragic portrayal of a historical character 

Series 6 - The Doctor’s Wife; probably the strangest of Doctor Who’s love stories

Series 7 - Hide; the jump scare side of Doctor Who

Series 8 - Robot of Sherwood; a bit of fun with a ‘historical’ character for lovers of cheesiness

Series 9 - Heaven Sent; a gripping timey wimey episode

Steam Workshop :: THE PEOPLE OF SKYRIM ULTIMATE EDITION

It’s been a while since I recommended a mod. I don’t typically get excited about them because I try them all the time. 
THIS ONE IS AWESOME.
Very well done, beautiful and seamless. It adds people, buildings, shops, dungeons…so much cool. A brilliant addition to the game.
The best part - I don’t really want to spoil for you - an idea that I’ve never seen in any mod before - that I am loving - something that ties the whole of Skyrim together in a quest-like hunt. So cool!
It doesn’t matter what level you are, you must GO DOWNLOAD IT NOW!!!!

When modernity teaches us to loathe ourselves and then sells us quick fixes for despair, we can be forgiven for balking at the cash register. Anxious millennials now seem to have a choice between desperate narcissism and crushing misery. Which is better? The question is not rhetorical. On the one hand, Instagram happiness gurus make me want to drown myself in a kale smoothie. On the other, I’m sick and tired of seeing the most brilliant people I know, the fighters and artists and mad radical thinkers whose lives’ work might actually improve the world, treat themselves and each other in ludicrously awful ways with the excuse, implicit or explicit, that any other approach to life is counterrevolutionary.

Some of the left critique of self-care as a neoliberal conspiracy has to do with dismissing the work that women and queer people do to survive. “I have heard feminism be dismissed as a form of self-indulgence,” writes Professor Sara Ahmed of Goldsmiths, University of London. So have I. I’ve heard men on the left write off anti-sexist, anti-racist politics as hopelessly individualistic, whilst also refusing to do the basic work of self-care and mutual care that keeps hope alive and health possible, because that work is women’s work, undignified in comparison to watching your life fall apart while you wait for the revolution or for some girl to pick up the pieces, whichever comes first.

—  Laurie Penny · Life-Hacks of the Poor and Aimless
Book Stack: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

“If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and you’ll never learn.”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is a classic dystopian novel of a post-literate future, which stands alongside Orwell’s 1984 and Huxley’s Brave New World as a prophetic account of Western civilization’s enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity.

Bradbury’s powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to create a novel which, decades on from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.
