‘Dope’, Rick Famuyiwa (2015)

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Malcolm Arakanbe. I’m a straight-A student with nearly perfect SAT scores. I play in a punk band with my friends and I’m a 90s hip hop geek.

Oh it’s opening time
Down on Fascination Street
So let’s cut the conversation
And get out for a bit

Because I feel it all fading and paling
And I’m begging
To drag you down with me
To kick the last nail in

Inspired from this vine. I was so disappointed that no one has created an lotf animation (well sort of) with it, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. Enjoy my wasted week of work. Oh yeah and this is an AU where Jack TOTALLY tried flaunt his C sharp skills and signal everyone on the island before Ralph even has a chance to blow the conch and Piggy’s glasses are no longer viable for starting signal fires XD

As we know, women have to break down many barriers on the road to success. One of those barriers is the way we are constantly reminded we are not men, as if it is a flaw. People call me one of the “world’s greatest female athletes”. Do they say LeBron is one of the world’s best male athletes? Is Tiger? Federer? Why not? They are certainly not female. We should never let this go unchallenged. We should always be judged by our achievements, not by our gender.

“Have you kilt anybody?” the boy inquired with interest, looking at William‘s dress sword.

“No, not yet,” William replied, smiling.

“My grandsire‘s kilt two dozen men!”

“Jemmy!” Both parents spoke at once, and the little boy‘s shoulders went up around his ears.

“Well, he has!”

“I‘m sure he is a bold and bloody man, your grandsire,” William assured the little boy gravely. “The King always has need of such men.”

“My grandda says the King can kiss his arse,” the boy replied matter-of-factly.

“JEMMY!”

Mr. MacKenzie clapped a hand over his outspoken offspring‘s mouth.

“You know your grandda didn‘t say that!” Mrs. MacKenzie said. The little boy nodded agreeably, and his father removed the muffling hand.

“No. Grannie did, though.”

“Well, that‘s somewhat more likely,” Mr. MacKenzie murmured.

Meet Maggie Rogers, the Pharrell Williams-approved producer:

“Maggie Rogers had not written music for nearly three years when, in a cascade of creativity this past March, it took her fifteen minutes to produce a song called “Alaska.” Four days later, Rogers, then a senior at NYU, played the track—which combines the confessional lyricism of folk music with a trotting electronic rhythm—in a master class hosted by Pharrell Williams. “Wow. I have zero, zero, zero notes for that,” Williams said afterward, almost teary-eyed. “It’s singular… . And that is such a special quality.” The video went viral.”
