this is from the golden globes

anonymous asked:

Are you a Caitriona Balfe's hater? Sometimes I get this impression from you. You act as if she isn't important in Sam's life, as co-star and his friend ( she said Sam is her best friend). And even is some comments of yours there is a a certain repugnance to her. Sorry, if it isn't the case, but it's what I feel from your posts.

Uhm maybe it’s better to start saying goodbye to some followers LOL. Lately everything I say is misunderstood…

Anyway, I try to answer you. I don’t hate Caitriona. Why should I do it? But I’m not a fan and I have no interest in her, that’s true.

(I try to explain better, otherwise this sounds bad).

You know, I came here at the end of 2015. Towards the time of the first Golden Globes. The first season of Outlander was already aired (in Italy just in the spring). So I never lived 2014, I never lived the first promotion. I’ve never seen Sam and Caitriona flirting on the red carpet. I’ve never been involved with the couple and I never wished they became a couple. For me they are good friends and normal co-stars as there are so many others. I’ve never seen “sparks” between them.

As I said often I never read the books so I was not even a fan of Jamie and Claire, I didn’t know them. I believe this fact is very relevant. Outlander had attracted me for its travels over time and the wonderful Scotland, with its clans and its highlanders.
I didn’t love the second season and honestly I didn’t even love Claire’s character, in my eyes she always looks very selfish. This is obviously not Cait’s fault, it is fault of the TV series and how the writers have built her character.
(All this affects how I see Caitriona out of the set? Nope)

I’m watching the third season exclusively for Sam and to see Jamie’s twenty years. I wanted to see him interact with new stories and new characters. I don’t even know if I will watch the 4 series.

Maybe all this can help you understand me? I’m just a fan of Sam and his talent. I’m not here to hate anyone…

y’all are still sleeping on noah schnapp’s performance in stranger things 2 and that is completely unacceptable. noah was given possibly the most challenging role this season. he had to literally play levels of his character. from a normal will to a depressed will to an anxious will to different levels of will becoming possessed to him being fully possessed- basically playing the monster itself. he had to literally act in response to a green screen (NOTHING) in so many scenes and he still was perfection and effective with his emotion. he had so many scenes that were emotionally challenging and amazingly delivered but I don’t hear any of you talking about it or praising him. I get that he wasn’t a big part of season 1 (even though you can see glimpses of his talent in episodes like ‘the body’), but that’s what makes it even worse. because he’s out there coming back this season and giving it his all and performing at such a high caliber that deserves an emmy/golden globe/SAG award and people are just ignoring him to talk about billy or the characters from last season who have already received so much praise (deservedly so). interviewers talk over him or ignore him and act like he doesn’t exist in the show even though the entire show mainly surrounds him and el. give noah schnapp the recognition and praise he deserves.

Voyager: The Golden Record

It’s the 1970s, and we’re about to send two spacecraft (Voyager 1 & 2) into space. These two spacecraft will eventually leave our solar system and become the most distant man-made objects…ever. How can we leave our mark on them in the case that other spacefarers find them in the distant future?

The Golden Record.

We placed an ambitious message aboard Voyager 1 and 2, a kind of time capsule, intended to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrials. The Voyager message is carried by a phonograph record, a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth.

The Golden Record Cover

The outward facing cover of the golden record carries instructions in case it is ever found. Detailing to its discoverers how to decipher its meaning.

In the upper left-hand corner is an easily recognized drawing of the phonograph record and the stylus carried with it. The stylus is in the correct position to play the record from the beginning. Written around it in binary arithmetic is the correct time of one rotation of the record. The drawing indicates that the record should be played from the outside in.

The information in the upper right-hand portion of the cover is designed to show how the pictures contained on the record are to be constructed from the recorded signals. The top drawing shows the typical signal that occurs at the start of the picture. The picture is made from this signal, which traces the picture as a series of vertical lines, similar to ordinary television. Immediately below shows how these lines are to be drawn vertically, with staggered “interlace” to give the correct picture rendition. Below that is a drawing of an entire picture raster, showing that there are 52 vertical lines in a complete picture.

Immediately below this is a replica of the first picture on the record to permit the recipients to verify that they are decoding the signals correctly. A circle was used in this picture to ensure that the recipients use the correct ratio of horizontal to vertical height in picture reconstruction.

The drawing in the lower left-hand corner of the cover is the pulsar map previously sent as part of the plaques on Pioneers 10 and 11. It shows the location of the solar system with respect to 14 pulsars, whose precise periods are given.

The drawing containing two circles in the lower right-hand corner is a drawing of the hydrogen atom in its two lowest states, with a connecting line and digit 1 to indicate that the time interval associated with the transition from one state to the other is to be used as the fundamental time scale, both for the time given on the cover and in the decoded pictures.

The Contents

The contents of the record were selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan of Cornell University and his associates. 

They assembled 115 images and a variety of natural sounds, such as those made by surf, wind and thunder, birds, whales and other animals. To this, they added musical selections from different cultures and eras, and spoken greetings from Earth-people in fifty-five languages, and printed messages from President Carter and U.N. Secretary General Waldheim.

Listen to some of the sounds of the Golden Record on our Soundcloud page:

Songs from Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode,” to Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony are included on the golden record. For a complete list of songs, visit:

The 115 images included on the record, encoded in analog form, range from mathematical definitions to humans from around the globe. See the images here:

Making the Golden Record

Many people were instrumental in the design, development and manufacturing of the golden record. 

Blank records were provided by the Pyral S.A. of Creteil, France. CBS Records contracted the JVC Cutting Center in Boulder, CO to cut the lacquer masters which were then sent to the James G. Lee Record Processing center in Gardena, CA to cut and gold plate eight Voyager records.

The record is constructed of gold-plated copper and is 12 inches in diameter. The record’s cover is aluminum and electroplated upon it is an ultra-pure sample of the isotope uranium-238. Uranium-238 has a half-life of 4.468 billion years.

  • i can never stress enough how you all should be watching crazy ex-girlfriend.
  • i gather it’s for free on the cw app
  • i gather netflix uploads the episodes weekly in most regions
  •  it has everything tumblr claims to desperately want and yet its fandom is made of like three people.
  •  drop the “sexist title” bullshit and try to actually watch: the entire show is about deconstructing the “crazy” world by dealing with a young woman with untreated anxiety and depression. yes, anxiety and depression
  • and yet the writing is so clever for some reason it feels bittersweet rather than intoxicatingly sad
  • it’s not about romantic/sexual relationships. there are those, but they’re just a means to explore the female protagonist’s life and journey.
  • you get anti-heroes. because you don’t have to be a man making drugs on a cable drama to be an anti-hero. you have to be deeply fucked up and that’s what these characters are.
  • it’s the most diverse cast i’ve ever seen. 
  • one character gets a number on coming out as bisexual. the word is said multiple times. you don’t like shows shying away from it? fucking watch crazy ex-girlfriend.
  • they sing and dance their ass off, and well, and showcasing meta commentaries on storytelling and how even music videos are made. they do pop, rap, rock, old hollywood musicals, you name it. they do everything and they’re brilliant at it. the soundtrack’s online. the music sheets too.
  • it’s just overall brilliant. it won the cw a golden globe and two emmys. rachel bloom is out of this world

The Godfather (1972)

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola

Cinematography by Gordon Willis


When media starring POC are constantly under-valued and ignored, it’s business as usual.

But the mere thought of a film with an all-white cast losing to a moving staring black people means that it’s a sham?

If your first thought whenever POC are successful is about how undeserved that success or acclaim is - you’re racist and are working to defend and uphold system of racism.

Seriously though, look at how success for POC is automatically coded and interpreted as something being STOLEN from white people.

White entitlement is real, pervasive and covert. 

La la land received 14 Academy Award nominations & broke records for the amount of Golden Globes received by one film. It has already received so much acclaim considering it is has an overwhelmingly white cast in a movie WITH JAZZ as the backdrop - yet that isn’t enough because whiteness cannot possibly allow it to be outshine by Moonlight.


I have a one bedroom apartment and I flew my parents in from Puerto Rico for the Golden Globes. I wanted my parents nearby so I gave them my bedroom. It was very humbling getting ready for the Golden Globes and sleeping on my couch the night before! But the beautiful change in my life isn’t really possessions. I haven’t bought anything big or grand, and my boyfriend is still the same, and my family keeps me grounded. But what has changed is my ability to help people, to financially help my family, that means a lot to me, to help my grandmother, to help my sister move to L.A, to help my nieces and nephews go to better schools, that is the best blessing.


Hey Elizabeth! Don’t you have some racist AF, rape culture promoting, homophobic POS movie to make? 

1. Racist AF: the Asian character in both “Pitch Perfect” movies is literally a human joke with no real dialogue, just “weirdo” surreal one-liners. The Latina character in the 2nd movie is the same, and the jokes involve how little her life is worth because she’s Latina. And Banks directed that one! 

2. Rape Culture promoting: see this post - Rape Culture 101: “No Means Yes”

3. Homophobic: the black character’s lesbianism is literally joked about in the first movie and treated with a “hush hush wink wink” vibe from the other girls throughout both. The “Bellas” all treat it as something embarrassing and it’s only treated as normal the one time in each movie that the character shares an anecdote about herself.

To be clear:

1. I’m not saying that Spielberg shouldn’t make more movies with women leads, far from it!

2. I AM saying that it’s peak white feminism when you read through Spielberg’s Wiki or IMDB filmography, see The Color Purple, and not know that movie STARRED OPRAH WINFREY AND WHOOPI GOLDBERG. 

Millennials and young people, you have an excuse - Banks doesn’t. She is 43 and was 11 when the movie came out in 1985. The movie and actresses were nominated for Oscars in ‘86 and Goldberg won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress. This was not some college film that Spielberg made, it was nominated for 10 Oscars.

3. I am ALSO saying that “Pitch Perfect 2″ directed by Banks was one of the most offensive movies I’ve watched in years (yeah I know there are worst movies, I don’t seek out shit), especially the “throwaway life / who cares if I die” joke line on the Latina character. 

Elizabeth Banks - work on your own shit, hire women of color as writers, and watch The Color Purple for f*cks sake

theoi as Aesthetics™ cause i feel like it ig


sunlight beaming through dark clouds, cold winds that burn your cheeks, lightning that illuminates the sky for just a fraction of a second, strong wings and sharp talons


golden rings slightly dulled after years of wear, lotus flowers floating upon pools of water, wedding gifts wrapped in gold paper, peacock feathers that glimmer in the sun


jagged rocks decorated by barnacles and seaweed, clouds of sand kicked up by a horse galloping across a seashore, rusted old treasures lost to the deep ocean, waves that lap gently over the sand or crash fiercely against the rocks


large dogs bearing sharp teeth, old coins blackened and rusted by time, animal bones half-buried under dark soil, silver rings on pallid fingers


long grass brushing against your legs, freshly baked bread in a wicker picnic basket, golden honeycomb, fields of grain ready for harvest


lipstick stains in shades of red and pink, doves perched upon blossoming branches, love letters written in smudged red ink, the opalescent underside of a scallop shell


crowns of bay leaves resting on curly hair, golden instruments polished until gleaming, poems scrawled on walls in marker pen, bandages carefully wrapped over wounds


feather-tipped arrows, flowers and leaves braided into a wreath, deer drinking from a brook in the forest, moonlight shining through the evergreen branches of tall trees


bandages over bruised and scratched knuckles, flaming molotovs soaring through the air, crossed swords mounted on old walls, fading scars that stretch across shoulder blades


books with creased spines and dog-eared pages, owls with thick feathers and wide eyes, ornate swords and shields from ancient eras long forgotten, sharp eyes full of wisdom and knowledge


limbs tangled in red velvet sheets, wild and uncontrolled laughter, garlands of ivy and purple flowers, red wine spilling over the glass, kissing the lips of marble statues


gears that fit together like puzzle pieces, the soft crackling of a fire, palms stained with oil and soot, the methodic clanking of iron hitting iron, gifts of handmade jewellery


shoes worn through from walking, antique maps and globes and golden compasses, a messenger bag filled with letters and parcels, sly smiles and deft hands


warm clean sheets, a small vase of flowers on the windowsill, warming your hands near the fireplace, cups of tea and home-baked fairycakes


“Tarth. I’m biased, but she keeps it together.” -Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to HBO on which character do you admire the most?

“I love the character of Jaime Lannister. He’s just so complex…” -Gwendoline Christie

“Gwen and I have a lot of fun together, I wish it could go on forever.” -Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

“And Nikolaj is a very special actor. He’s brilliant, hilarious and mercurial. And again, incredibly highly skilled. I felt nervous about acting opposite someone that was so highly skilled that I’d be working with so intensely, but he completely went for it from the beginning and was not afraid to go full-throttle on all of the scenes. And to really feed the relationship off-screen, too, by endlessly teasing me, haha. It’s really fun and hard work. He’s a brilliant actor. And I’ve had an absolute ball. I’ve had a real riot.“ -Gwendoline Christie

“If you meet Gwen, you’ll know that she is light.” -Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

This is my SamCait love story, and I’m sticking to it!

In the beginning, our beloveds were just getting to know each other. They were sweet, shy, and smitten from the start. 

Planets collided, the stars aligned, they fell in love, and two became one.

I think they got married sometime in 2015.

Did it happen before Paleyfest, when Cait said to Sam off mic, “You’re my favorite husband,” and he replied with a big smile, “Yes”?

Or was it later in the year?

Sam’s stylist captioned this pre-Golden Globes photo “MR + MRS.” This supports my feeling that Sam and Cait were planning a reveal. Apparently the stylist didn’t get the IFH memo. 

All of these photos scream MARRIED! to me.

This is their love story as I’ve been honored to watch it unfold. I pray that one day Sam and Cait will be free to share their love with the world. Until then, I’ve got all the evidence I need.
