this was a nice little scene

Thoughts on 4x09

(sorry this got quite long because there were just so many good things..!)

- Loved those flashbacks of swordfighting training with Flint and Silver!!! Silver taking off the prosthetic in front of Flint without hesitating, and Flint being sort of shocked by how casual Silver is about it. Because there is no pride between them asldkfajdskl. They were joking and smiling and basically being really GAY. And mind you these are Silver’s memories; this is how he remembers it. 

- (also they both looked really good in those scenes. nice nice)

- Madi being a QUEEN. Telling Woodes Rogers how it is. He killed Eleanor. Gosh I love Madi. She is so brave and wise and strong. 

 - Poor little baby Ben Gunn! Billy pointing the gun at him but deciding not to shoot him!! Wow! I hope he safely reached the shore

- De Groot :( Joji :( :( Dooley :( :(

- I really liked the fighting scene between Flint and Joji. The fact that Joji could show off his amazing skills one last time and that Flint actually looked pretty nervous having to fight him eheheh

- When Jack Rackham starts talking about how close he is to achieving his goals, you know shit is about to hit the fan :) I wonder if they will reach the island (and if they do, what/who they will find there?!)

- Flint’s panicking voice because Dooley was going to shoot Silver, even though Silver was going to kill Flint?? shiiiiiiiiit

- For someone like Silver, who doesn’t like to get attached to anyone or anything, it must be terrifying to be so close to Flint. And how Flint always knows just what to say to make Silver do as he wants. (Madi would never forgive you if you killed me because all that matters to her is this war and I am the war) 

- I found Silver’s ‘backstory’ a bit disappointing at first but it’s actually a really nice way to show the differences between Flint and Silver. While Flint tries to give meaning to the things that have happened to him, Silver is much more realistic and down to earth. There is no story. Life is just shit for no reason lol 

- Silver actually got quite emotional when Flint wanted to know his real story, which makes me all the more curious about what has happened to Silver in his life. It must have been really bad…

- the last scene with Madi and Silver sitting at a table and Madi’s face is basically saying ‘seriously John can you stop talking about Flint for one fucking minute’ while Silver is talking about how he is so happy to be friends with Flint. Pure gold.  

tl;dr: I can’t believe this episode was real. 10/10 rating. And only onE MORE TO GO AAAAA

You're so talented at analyzing scenes, so maybe you saw more into than I did. But all the Regina/EQ scenes were so cringe worthy, the resolution especially. I've never been under the impression that she hated herself. Quite the reason to go on a killing rampage and curse and entire kingdom. But maybe that's just me?? But seriously, that was the whole point of the arc?

That was a nice, neat little bow they whipped out at the last minute to tie on that irritating storyline, wasn’t it?

So what I’m getting is this. No matter how many people you kill in cold blood or how much misery you cause to innocent villagers all you need is a hug and some nauseating self-affirmation talk and you can end up living in your dream world with your true love.

Also that all the characters who have struggled for 5 seasons to be good and do the right thing were suckers because apparently no matter how evil you were in the past everyone is getting redeemed and given their happily ever after in S6.

There’s probably actually more to it than that but right now I’m fighting my gag reflex every time I think of that storyline. I’ll probably see it more clearly when I rewatch.

I’m proud of myself for this cosplay, so I’m gonna post about it.

I cosplayed Shippo yesterday, from Inuyasha. I think this may have been the most effort I have ever put into a cosplay. Save for getting my mom’s assistance on reading a pattern (which I had to modify heavily), I did everything myself and pushed my makeup boundaries. I tried contouring for the first time. 

In the convention scene, Inuyasha is a bit “dated” now…I was a little sad when people gave a look of confusion when I told them what series/character I was. But the reactions from the people who did know were fantastic. I was part of a group of friends, and we all cosplayed from Inuyasha and entered the cosplay competition as a group. We didn’t place for craftsmanship, but we received the judge’s choice for our personality and showmanship.

It was really nice to receive a lot of praise on my cosplay, makeup, and attention to detail. I spent the better part of two weeks every day after work making this cosplay (and a good 2 months prior planning), forgoing my free time to complete it.  

Thoughts on Andrew Scott's Hamlet at the Almeida

It’s true that Hamlet is written over again everytime you see the play on the stage. Here are some of the things that left an impression on my mind from last night’s Hamlet… 1. The stage design was beautifully simple yet effective, with heavily Scandinavian vibes. The main stage area was separated from another upstage space by a glass corridor, and there were often little scenes playing out behind the downstage action, serving as a dramatic contrast. There were lots of digital interaction: security cameras for the ghost scenes, news broadcasts of Fortinbras, live cameras capturing Claudius’s reactions during the Mousetrap. Nicely done and not too intrusive. // 2. The music was quite filmic and sort of nostalgic. Of course, it depends on if you like Bob Dylan or not. I didn’t like the music video vibes in some scenes, but it was quite effective and certainly innovative. // 3. I loved Polonius and Ophelia’s relationship. Her love for him seemed genuine. He seemed to be in the first stages of some degenerative illness, and it was very touching. // 4. Jessica Brown Findlay was outstanding as Ophelia, probably the best I’ve ever seen. No waify manic pixie girl, thank heavens. She was magnificent on the very difficult singing/flowers scenes. I sometimes find Ophelia’s pain hard to understand, but she made it believable to me. // 5. Guildenstern and Rosencratz were good too - Rosencratz was massively jealous of Hamlet, which made the dynamic very interesting. // 6. Gertrude was genuinely caring; Laertes’s hystrionics were amusing but not too ridiculous, and Claudius was particularly good while confessing. Special kudos to Hamlet Sr. // 7. And now to the prince of Denmark… Andrew Scott. Surprisingly, he was not a frenetic Hamlet. Most of the time he was restrained, soft spoken, and very sympathetic. He had his raging moments, of course, but they had more impact because of the contrast. He played up the humour - which is something I like on any Shakespeare’s play - and showed his conflicts and alliances with subtlety. He made the words (“words, words”) come alive. He stole the show, as expected, keeping the audience’s attention through variation of emotion. // 8. All in all, it was a coherent and slick production, creating a real world that became more and more claustrophobic as the play went on. Highly recommended.

Bullet Points: Do You Really Want To Do That?

Ill Boding Patterns–part 5 (part 1-4 here, herehere and here)

Bullet points are encapsulated scene analysis from the top of each act to the bottom. (each act is bookended by a commercial break)

1. Nice establishing shot with the branch in the foreground cutting the screen in half and Beowulf in the background. A visual indication things are not gonna go smoothly for him.

2. He goes from confident strut to visible fear the second he hears a noise. Just like Bae did previously.  Once again making a statement about unchallenged courage.

Nice.

3. Considering how powerful that dagger is you’d think people would guard it a little more carefully. Chain it to your wrist. Tuck it inside your shirt. Something.

4. “You’re just like your father. You don’t have it in you.”

Has there ever been a moment in the history of television when a line like that hasn’t led to an ass-whoopin?

I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
