this is gonna be great guys

anonymous asked:

SHOULD I WATCH GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

okay listen. 

listen. 

idk if u have seen the first film. 

and u need to watch the first film to understand the second, which is, arguably, the better story of the two.

now, the first film. it’s. its a film, okay. its a movie. its ur typical bad guy is gonna destroy the world protagonists enter in STAGE LEFT & whilst they have a couple bumps at first they TEAM TOGETHER and SAVE THE WORLD bc they are Good Folks despite their questionably legal professions!

great!

like, it’s a decent film. it’s funny, it’s action packed, there’s a lot of heart to the characters. it SETS THE STAGE real well.

but the thing is it leaves u feeling kind of “eh whatever” UNLESS U FOLLOW IT UP WITH THE SECOND MOVIE.

film 1 is genuinely very good for worldbuilding and character setup, and, imo, not that great if you’re looking for a film with powerful emotional heart and a strong narrative message. like dont get me wrong, it’s good. it’s fun, it’s entertaining, and u get some warm fuzzies at the end. it’s originality is decent, considering the inherent originality of the setting of the film, but in terms of “wow, that was so creative, i never saw that coming” content … it’s average. like, “wow, that movie changed my life, i’ve got so much to think about now”, it’s …. okay. like it’s good, but it’s not genius, u know? it ain’t art.

vol.2, on the other hand? KNOCKS THAT STUFF OUT OF THE BALL PARK.

this film is ART.

u got character-centric storytelling. u got powerful narrative metaphors w strong and Good life messages. u got excellent character relationship growth, u got genius in the creativity department, u got originality, u got unique and complex villains, u got some TOP NOTCH JOKES, u got bammin’ slammin’ action sequences, u got GORGEOUS visuals, u got the most incredibly incorporation of song into story that i have EVER SEEN.

and. AND. on top of that, it takes so many of the vague attempts at subversion of Generic Superhero Tropes in film one and REALLY GOES TO TOWN WITH THEM, in that it is one big Think Outside The Box. the whole story subverts, deconstructs, and rebuilds some of the most problematic trends in superhero – or in fact, most generic action-y – storytelling.

PLUS, on top of all that, it explicitly shows characters on screen engaging in some really healthy behaviours. it has three separate female characters with three separate independent arcs, none of whom are sexualized. it allows male characters to be emotional and vulnerable and it delves into complicated heavy issues like breaking the cycle of abuse, or the many insidious layers and effects of toxic masculinity.

the entire story is about deconstructing and subverting toxic masculinity. and it is told so well.

and, on top of all of that Excellent Content, u literally, my friend, feel as though u are immersed in a particularly colourful gotg comic book for 2 and a half hours of your life.

WHAT an icon, tbh 

and so u see, anon, guardians vol.2 takes all the excellent premise content that vol.1 set up – rag tag gang of criminal losers accidentally become a family and save the world bc they’re Good people – and really expands on that beautifully. it takes the universe its built for itself and it tells a genuinely Good and complex and emotional story within that universe, about the characters that it’s set up for itself. 

and it is, truly, in every sense of the word, an ensemble superhero film. every character has their own individual arc, which are simultaneously independent of each other but also strongly interrelated bc the whole point of the story is that they’re a family whom loves each other. EVERYONE has an arc. and they’re all satisfying. they’re all important. they’re all powerful, even if they’re humorous or cute or kind of ridiculous at times.

and then, u know what happens, anon? u know what u get when u have a whole film, a whole 2 hours, that explores its characters in such depth?

u get a whole new perspective on vol.1, on that first, mostly decent generic-ish superhero film, and then u have the TIME OF YOUR LIFE re-watching the first one. bc u are invested in these characters now! u know where they’re going! how much they’re gonna love each other! how much they’ve dealt with in their lives! u have so much emotional context. so that first movie? it becomes important. it becomes relevant and poignant, when juxtaposed to the narrative of the second one, to the arcs in the second one.

truly? truly? what a way to write a story. what a WAY. i wanna do that someday.

so.

SO.

u should., ,,,, imho … in my humblest onion ….. Please Watch Guardians of the Galaxy. bc if u havent seen the first one, u cant understand the second one, and personally, i think that guardians of the galaxy volume 2 is genuinely one of the most important films that marvel studios has produced to date.

Party in the CIA (Weird Al) - Oh hey it’s a recent Weird Al song. This was another song where I heard it in an animation before I found the original. And I like both, even though I listen to the song more than I watch the animation nowadays.

Spooktune (Undertale) -  I’m gonna need to do something about all the songs that don’t even reach 1 minute that are on my playlist…anyways, I think this is cute. It was one of the fun little songs I remember liking when I got to the part of the game where you can hang out with Napstablook.

Megalo Strick Back (Cover by RichaadEB) - One of the early version made by Toby Fox and man does it sound great. The guy really knows how to make boss battle music that gets the blood pumping and raises the stakes. But enough about the original, let’s talk about the cover since that’s what my playlist landed on. Take what I said about music that raises the stakes and just times that by 10, because this cover also makes for really great boss battle/ inspiration music.

Beat it (Micheal Jackson) - You know, out of all of MJ’s music, I think this is the one I’d love to see a rock cover of the most. Anyways, what can really be said? It’s Micheal Jackson, and it’s awesome. Though I must admit, up until this point, I haven’t seen the music video in it’s entirety, and that’s also really good. If I knew anything about how to animate dancing, I think it’d be a good starting point for a parody animation or something.

Thriller (Micheal Jackson) - Alright, so I guess my playlist has decided that I’m not done talking about Micheal Jackson yet, so here’s Thriller. One of my favorite if not my all time favorite song from MJ. I really like how funky it sounds. It’s kind of funny, but the song kind of reminds me of a 70s horror movie soundtrack. Which, judging from the music video, may have been the point, though I’m not actually sure. Either way, I really like this one, and to the surprise of no one, I always make sure this song is on my Halloween playlist.

miskick  asked:

you do so much research and put so much thought into rise it makes me wanna lowkey cry like?? oh my god?? you're so good???

             YOU’RE  gonna make me ugly cry pls…..

                 Thank you so much, though, like… It’s been a really long time since I’ve tackled a canon character that’s been established for years like Rise has. It’s pretty nervewracking sometimes to write headcanons or even just finish out replies because I feel far from an expert — I’ve only just recently finished both animations, after all ( thanks R ) !  So it really is a relief, & you guys seriously deserve a huge thank-you for always reading what I put out & always giving such great feedback

Nighty Night! <3

Ah, that smut really took it all out of me xD The descent into Gladio hell is a great one ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Tomorrow I’m gonna write something sinful for our resident children’s menu blogger- @blindbae- honestly I am so impressed that I haven’t corrupted this cupcake young woman yet into writing smut xD <3

And then Chapter 12 of Sunshowers! :D

Love you all! <3 Thank you so much for all your kindness every single day- you guys are amazing! <33333 I am so blessed!

I don’t  …   feel too hot honestly  ??   my emotional state hasn’t been great the past week   &&   I think it’s because we’re closing on a house   &&   have to be moved out by the first of the month.   just a lot of stuff is going on, it’s hard to focus here so I apologize for being so selective with my replies.   But I’m gonna continue to send out good vibes.  I know people are struggling right now …

does anybody have any tips on how to lose water weight or bloating in days?? even the smallest bit would be great. or just any tips to look good in a swimsuit?? i’m gonna be at the beach all next week and it’s kinda freaking me out. any advice would be so appreciated. love you guys ❤️

I like how this blog is becoming "buck-grampa, tell us a story", "aight, lil shorts, there was this cow..." Cuz you're old.

wait what???? im old???? i hadnt noticed, i thought that 100 year birthday party was for a different jackass with a metal arm. 

look, the only reason most of my stories are about the good ole days is because most of the morons i hang out with now have blackmail on me. and i have blackmail on them. we’re all doing the nuclear deterrent thing, it seemed appropriate with the russian-american vibe we’ve got going.

so i cant dish dirt on them without getting dished back. 

and i like you guys just fine, but i would rather murder every one of you than let tony tell anyone the story of the three shrimp plates. 

death before dishonor and all that

why b99 season 4 gives me life
  • Jake and Amy getting through Florida
  • Gina becoming a part of Charles’s family
  • jake and rosa’s friendship
  • the fact amy and rosa stuck together while jake was in Florida
  • “gross!! rosa, those are our dads!” 
  • we finally met Kylie. like four years later guys. we did it.
  • Gina got hit by a bus and she didn’t even break her stride (aint nothing gonna slow her down)
  • doug judy came back and kicked ass
  • “go to sleeeep daddy’s deaadd but his ghost’s always watching….”
  • the squad tackled racism like terry tackles firemen (strongly and efficiently)
  • Amy Santiago is gonna be a sergeant 
  • Jake and Amy’s relationship is so supportive and healthy i genuinely want to cry somethings
  • “ITS TEDDY. FROM JAZZ BRUNCH”
  • charles has a son now and he’s a great father, super supportive and learning things about his child’s native country
  • the show went from having fat jokes in season 1 to having an episode arc where Terry relates getting “emotionally healthy” 
  • jake not letting amy compromise her dream’s for his sake because her dreams are also his dreams

feel free to add ur own but basically this entire show is a blessing but this season is a treasure

let my boys be happy

I was happy for him. As you said, [Cheryl] is one of the most beautiful women in the country. He did well, as far as I’m concerned! She’s a lovely girl, he’s a lovely guy, and now they’ve got a baby. It’s great … I have my presents [for the baby] ready, I was gonna go round and see him, I texted him last week but he was in America. And then, when I leave [London] he comes back, and I just keep missing him. But, when I’m done with my promo, [going to see Liam and the baby] be the first thing I’ll be doing.
