My favorite Oscar memory is, I think, the year that Ben and I won [for Good Will Hunting], which was 19 years ago. I kind of remember all of it and none of it at the same time. We went from watching it on TV to being in the front row. There was no gap year where we got to go but sit in the back, so I think that’s why this first one that we went to was so memorable.
I can’t recall any specific thing except getting up onstage and pushing Ben to the microphone because neither of us had planned a speech, nor had we even talked about it, because we both knew, without saying this to each other, that we would be jinxing it. And then if we didn’t win, we would know for the rest of our lives that we had a conversation about what the speech was going to be. So we had no plan at all. When we got up there, I realized one of us was supposed to say something, and I pushed him, and he came up with a pretty good one right off the top of his head, but I think it involved us screaming out people’s names.
Found this quote long time ago on Pinterest and saw it again just now in my phone. Whatever it is the struggle we’re in, esp. studying: sleepless nights, staying up all night, skipping our favorite tv shows, endless assignments, less time with loved ones, let’s just keep this in mind.

Why did I choose this URL: My first URL was capsicle1916 (which I still have a hold of), which was a nickname given to Steve Rogers in Avengers plus my school code, then it became consulting-doctor-avenger-hunter, then I went with trash-sicle because I’m trash and I wanted to keep something similar to capsicle.

Why I chose my url: Benzene is one of the elementary hydrocarbons. It’s colorless, sweet smelling, highly flammable/explosive, is an essential part of petroleum plastic production, carcinogenic, and the compound that gives gasoline its sweet smell.
So, maybe I’m huffing gas, or maybe I’m making a statement about the demise of our species and planet, as we pollute the air/water/ground with carcinogenic compounds, causing mass extinctions, and likely ending humanity itself. Good times

What are your favourite quotes or thoughts from HTTYD series?
Yas! Quotes!!! I will admit I absolutely adore quotes. I have the opening to the first How to Train Your Dragon book completely memorized, and the first two HTTYD movies are so quotable you’ll frequently catch me irl making some quotation from them. I’ll plop in some of my all-time favorite quotes from the HTTYD DreamWorks franchise, including quotes from the television series.
“Excuse me, barmaid! I’m afraid you brought me the wrong offspring! I ordered an extra large boy with beefy arms, extra guts, and glory on the side.” - Hiccup III (HTTYD)
“Now, you’re thinking about this all wrong. It’s not so much what you look like, it’s what’s inside that he can’t stand.” - Gobber (HTTYD)
“Thank you for summing that up.” - Hiccup III (HTTYD)
“Pain. Love it.” - Hiccup III (HTTYD)
“Thanks for nothing, you useless reptile.” - Hiccup III (HTTYD)
“Gobber, take off your pants!” - Hiccup III (LOTBD)
“But you can raise us a ‘spank his skinny ass’.” - Ruffnut (ROB: Dragon Down)
“Better stop him – last time the Changewing hypnotized Hiccup, we found him nesting in the rafters of the Great Hall.” “My favorite was when he kissed Tuffnut. I dined on that story for a week!” - Fishlegs and Ruffnut (ROB: The Legend of Ragnarok)
“He’s looked angry since the day I was born. But I’m sure there’s no connection.” - Hiccup III (ROB: Animal House)
“Oh yeah? Well you know what this is? The size of your brain! Oh wait… that’s better.” - Hiccup III (ROB: Thawfest)
“That’s it. Keep talking, Snotlout, as your winning streak goes up in flames… just like your Rings of Deadly Fire.” - Hiccup III (ROB: Thawfest)
“Hey Fishlegs! You need some help getting your nose out of Hiccup’s -“ - Snotlout (DOB: Worst in Show)
"SLARBLURG! SLARBLURG! NORK NORK NORK!” - Snotlout (DOB: A View to a Skrill Part 1)
“When am I not safe? Uhhh… don’t answer that.” - Hiccup III (DOB: The Eel Effect)
“We were so close uniting our people. We could have had it all, you and me. We could have been kings among men… and dragons! And now look at us. What have we got, huh? Nothing. Nothing!” - Snotlout (DOB: The Eel Effect)
“You broke my heart, Thor. You broke it right in two.” - Snotlout (RTTE: Big Man on Berk)
“And finally, the letter ‘s’ has been officially removed from the alphabet. So you’re going to want to avoid words like sword… Severed leg… severed head… cyclone!” - Ruffnut and Tuffnut (RTTE: Reign of Fireworms)
“Toothle! Plama blat!” - Hiccup III (RTTE: Reign of Fireworms)
“The chicken is not amused.” - Tuffnut (RTTE: Reign of Fireworms)
“You’re harder to get rid of than life.” - Ruffnut (HTTYD 2 deleted scene)
Favorite serious quotes:
“I know what it’s like to miss someone you love this time of year. But what do we do when they can’t be here for the holiday? We celebrate them.” - Stoick (GOTNF)
“No! You wish I was your sister. You think I’d be dragging you all over the jungle if my brother weren’t the most important thing to me?” - Ruffnut (RTTE: Full Moon Rising)
“That’s my sister out there, Astrid. And if this goes wrong and we don’t save her… I couldn’t live with myself.” - Tuffnut (RTTE: Edge of Disaster)
“They say there’s two ways to be fooled: one is to believe what isn’t true, the other is to refuse to believe what is. Maces and Talons. I began playing with my grandfather when I was just a boy. I always insisted upon being the honorable Viking chief. I could never understand how he bested me time and time again. For years I assumed his skill transcended mine. I believed what wasn’t true. But you see, in Maces and Talons, as in life, the line between good and evil is often unclear. Black and white can become gray so easily. What one soul considers evil another might consider righteous. The honorable chief who fails to see this is found to be the fool.” - Viggo Grimborn (RTTE: Maces and Talons)
“Unreasonable men cannot be reasoned with.” - Stoick (HTTYD 2)
The lyrics of “For the Dancing and the Dreaming.” (HTTYD 2)
“STOP!” “Son!” “Dad, NO!” - Hiccup III and Stoick (HTTYD 2)
“No, get away from him! Go on, get out of here! Get away!” - Hiccup III (HTTYD 2)
“May the Valkyries welcome you and lead you through Odin’s great battlefield. May they sing your name with love and fury so that we may hear it rise from the depths of Valhalla and know that you have taken your rightful place at the table of kings. For a great man has fallen, a warrior, a chieftain, a father, a friend.” - Gobber (HTTYD 2)
“I’m sorry, Dad. I’m not the chief that you wanted me to be, and I’m not the peace keeper I thought I was. I don’t know…I - I was so afraid of becoming my dad, mostly because I thought I never could. How do you become someone that great, that brave, that selfless? I guess you can only try. A chief protects his own. We’re going back.” - Hiccup III (HTTYD 2)
“It wasn’t your fault, bud. They made you do it. You’d never hurt him. You’d never hurt me. Please, you are my best friend, bud. My best friend.” - Hiccup III (HTTYD 2)
“I won’t leave you. I won’t let you go.” - Hiccup III (HTTYD 2 deleted scene)
“Now do you get it? This is what it is to earn a dragon’s loyalty. Let this end. Now.” - Hiccup III (HTTYD 2)
“We may be small in numbers, but we stand for something bigger than anything the world can pit against us.
We are the voice of peace, and bit by by, we will change this world.” - Hiccup III (HTTYD 2)

i listen to your favorite band to feel close to you when we’re apart. i watch your favorite tv shows to know exactly what you find funny, emotional, and exciting. i visit you at work because the days i spend without seeing you are the worst kind of days. i don’t like very many people but i always seem to not be able to get enough of you. you’re in my thoughts all the time and impact my everyday life.
i can’t stop thinking about you. i don’t want to.
#1 S4 finale cuz I’m still screaming…I mean seriously I have never let out such a long and unintelligible scream and gotten up and jumped around watching a tv show like I did when this scene came up. It was just such an unexpected and welcoming surprise…
#2 The Trail from the bus where Fitz said ‘What kind of a coward was I to marry her and not wait for you to show up?’ because it’s my all time favorite scandal quote, to the hall scene in the hotel where he tells her to just go in her room, to her going to his room instead and of course their still so fucking hot first time
#3 The scene in the oval after Fitz gets back from the hospital where Olivia says ‘you almost died….don’t do it again” and the way he looks up at her and says “ok”. That coupled with the scene after Big Jerry’s funeral where Fitz is chopping the wood and she comes finds him and pulls him into a hug and he cries agains her. It’s just so beautiful to me watching them take of each other, but particularly her taking care of him because he’s the president and the most powerful man in the world (or would be in the funeral scene) yet she’s the one who is there to take care of him and help him and ugh melting in a pool of my own feels.
I want our bonding time to be well spent yet simple. Should it be singing and dancing all night to our favorite songs, or discussing all the books we have read from our favorites down to our least likes. Should it be watching our favorite movies and TV shows together in your cold couch while throwing popcorns at each other, or eating hot, instant noodles in a bowl. You should be an incredible foodie, but you should bear with my cookings because probably, I am still learning. Should you be a foodie - and I just know you would - because of you, my dear, I am willing to learn.
“I remember completely assuming Carol died without a care in the world, she wasn’t relevant, didn’t contribute much, and I thought ‘she ran her course.’ When she turned out alive, I decided, maybe she’s more of a fighter than I thought, and started to root for her, see her grow. She is now my all time favorite character, she breaks every stereotype in the industry, and she’s the reason Walking Dead is still one of my favorite shows.” - Luc
Carol is an important character in television history, because she defies every Hollywood stereotype. I’ve always said it. She has short grey hair. She’s older. She doesn’t fit the stereotypes we constantly see in film and television. She upsets people, because she does break a lot of stereotypes and in those people’s minds she’s breaking the rules. It’s so important for her to get a younger guy, the main heartthrob of the show, Daryl. It shows to the world that yes, an older woman with short grey hair IS attractive, strong, bad ass, and can be just as amazing as any other character. Caryl has to go canon, because it defies Hollywood stereotypes and helps to FIGHT ageism and sexism that runs rampant these days in the media and film industry. I hope that Caryl goes canon, because it breaks rules and it FIGHTS notions that encourage discrimination. We need this right now in television, because film and television educates people. Caryl going canon is a big deal for television history.
