Could you do a graphic tutorial for/post/120855259626/throne-of-glass-by-sarah-j-maas?

I’ve never done a graphic tutorial before so I hope this helps. I’m assuming you have basic knowledge with PS6 because that’s what I use. For this graphic we’re going to use the polygon lasso tool and marquee tool so I hope you’re familiar with those.

How have you escaped becoming a pillar for the LGBT community?
SARAH PAULSON:
Because I refuse to give any kind of label just to satisfy what people need. I understand that everybody wants to have a person to look toward that is actively making change around this issue, and I understand for young people coming out they want to attach that hope to a particular person, but I think that honesty is the most important piece of this for me. All I can say is, I’ve done both, and I don’t let either experience define me. I don’t let having been with a man make me think I am heterosexual, or make me want to call myself that, because I know I have been attracted to women - and have lived with women. So, for me, I’m not looking to define myself, and I’m sorry if that is something that is seen as a rejection of or an unwillingness to embrace (my sexuality) in a public way, but it’s simply not. It’s simply what’s true for me, and that’s all I can speak to.

“So what do you want to do today?”

Sarah looks up from her oatmeal to where Bucky is watching her. “Don’t you two have to work?”

Steve shakes his head. “Nothing today.”

“Oh.” Sarah sets down her spoon and rests her chin on her hand, gazing thoughtfully at a crack on the table. “Can we go to Brooklyn?”

Steve nods. “Do you want to see the old place?”

“Yes. And just…how everything has changed. And then we can talk some more.”

Bucky coughs. “I’ll stay here. I forgot, Sam wanted to get some extra work done in the gym.”

“Chicken,” Darcy snickers. Bucky flicks a crust of bread at her.

“Break it up, children,” Sarah says with a smile. “You’re coming too, young man. I learned how to text this morning and I can easily contact this Sam and ask him if this is true.”

Bucky scowls. “Fine, I’ll come.”

Jane covers a laugh with a slurp of coffee, nearly choking in the process. Darcy thumps her on the back. “Now that that’s all settled, I have to shower and get to the lab. Bruce is waiting.”

She grabs Bucky’s chin and tilts his face up so she can pop a kiss to his lips. He wrinkles his nose, shouting after her retreating back, “Brush your teeth!”

I was afraid of a lot of things back then. It’s hard looking back at all the things I could have done or could have been but did not and am not because I was just…scared.
Of what? I’m not really sure exactly. Maybe of rejection, fear of the unknown. You don’t even know what you are scared of and for whatever reason that’s the scariest part.
And then all of the sudden the moments over. And it doesn’t matter if you were scared or nervous or apprehensive.
And you don’t know what you missed, but you know it’s something.

Sarah seems to think I am good at summarizing books and history...

Can that be my job? Can I just make comical and crappily done sparknotes and spend the rest of my life making history and literature fun to high school students?

Is that an option?  Cuz that would be awesome.

“Bertha managed to escape her attic prison and was all ‘set fire to the rain everything!!!’ Then, in true form, she jumped off the roof.”

Or.

Robespierre was all “ Kill ALL the traitors!!!” and Danton was all “Killing the citizens will not bring you peace.” To which Robespierre replied “I do what I want!” and proceeded to kill everyone anyway.

At least that is my basic understanding of the Reign of Terror.

November 13, 2015:  Box Office History for Female Directors

This weekend two films (Patricia Riggen’s The 33 and Jessie Nelson’s Love the Coopers) open wide, each commanding over 2000 theatres across Canada and the U.S. This is something that shouldn’t matter, something that happens every weekend. What makes this weekend significant is that it’s the first time two movies directed by women have opened wide the same weekend. 

These are also sadly the last films directed by women scheduled for wide release in 2015. Unless Suffragette (directed by Sarah Gavron), Miss You Already (directed by Catherine Hardwicke) or By the Sea (directed by actress-turned-director Angelina Jolie) gain huge momentum this is it for 2015.

It now looks like 8 films directed by women will be given a wide release in 2015 when all is said and done. The other 6 are: Jupiter Ascending (Andy & Lana Wachowski), 50 Shades of Grey (Sam Taylor-Johnson), McFarland, USA (Niki Caro), Hot Pursuit (Anne Fletcher), Pitch Perfect 2 (Elizabeth Banks), The Intern (Nancy Meyers).

When you consider that all combined studios release an average of around 130 films in over 1000 theatres the number 8 is a tragically pitiful figure. When you consider that for the last decade the number of films directed by women per year given a wide release is between 3-5 (last year was 4) this number is hopeful. 

There are more reasons to be optimistic. Since ACLU announced they were looking into suing studios for widespread sexism the studios seem more willing to hire women which means that there are already 8 films directed by women in production or post-production for 2016.

It’s important to remember that despite these historic gains women of colour are still left far behind. This year only 1 woc (Patricia Riggen) directed a mainstream release. There simply needs to be more. 

As consumers there’s unfortunately very little we can do to try and rectify the situation. But for this weekend at least we can go to the cinema, have some popcorn and enjoy the all too rare experience of watching a film on the big screen that was directed by a woman.

“Hey no, we talked about this, no french kisses in public and not when I’m supposed to be mad at you,” Tom said, holding Katniss away from him. “You can’t just go around and snack on people’s shoes.” Shaking his head he let the dog down again and looked back up at the person in front of him. “I’m really sorry, I’d like to say what all dog owners say, that she’s never done that before and I can’t believe she’d even think about doing something like this, but I have to store my shoes on a shelf out of her reach so…. I’m sorry.”

anonymous asked:

whats eurovision?

Ooh, I’m glad you asked! Eurovision, or the Eurovision song contest, is only the most epic and fabulous song battle you will ever witness in your life, dear anon!

It is the summit of being European, it is the one time in the year we truly feel European. It is the day that we all look forward to, but it’s not something you’ll hear a lot of people say out loud. We all act like we don’t watch nor care, but the truth is very different.

Basically the concept of the competition is that pretty much every European country (this year Australia is included, because we all know Australia secretly wants to be European ;)) sends a song, and the more ridiculous and over-the-top it is, the better! 

Because this is the best part about Eurovision: a lot of countries just can’t be bothered sending in decent songs and we end up with a lot of ridiculous songs with completely over-the-top acts (I’m thinking of a lot of glitter, fireworks, acrobats and background dancers). We all look at it and mock the other contestants, but don’t you dare mocking our own country, even though we all pretend we don’t care, we get very offended if someone else makes fun of our country ;)

And then there’s the voting part. If a war breaks out in Europe, I’m pretty sure this is going to be the thing that started it. It can get real nasty, let me tell you that, because we all get grumpy if we see certain groups of countries voting for one another, oh how unfair, but be all expect our neighbouring countries to vote for us, the owe it to us, right?

In short, Eurovision is pretty damn fabulous; that’s pretty much the only thing you need to remember ;) And in case you still needed convincing, here’s Ukraine’s entry from a couple of years ago:
