this was an anderson appreciation post

Hi guys - so I’ve gotten word there may possibly be some of you out there with advance copies of We. I’m thrilled you’re so excited about our new book and Jennifer and I are so excited to share it with you. But, I would really appreciate it if you refrained from posting any reviews, excerpts, anything at all really, until the book is officially released on March 7th. Then by all means, we welcome your feedback! :)

Thanks, and looking forward to seeing some of you soon in NYC and London.

Gillian

This is to remind you that Gillian fucking Anderson was asked for an autograph as she was entering a posh post-awards party, and she walked BACK to the line of fans and signed an autograph. She didn’t have to. But she did.

Gillian loves and appreciates her fans. Remember this.

Introducing… 30 Days of Gillian 

Celebrating all the different roles in her life: woman, mother, actress, writer, philanthropist, friend, director, producer, and activist. 


Each day in November, @gilliansboobs and I will highlight something positive – promoting her works and accolades, and celebrating the complexity (and vulnerability) that is Gillian Anderson. 

Throughout the month, send us anons (or messages). What do you love the most about her? What sort of impact has she made in your life? What has she done that has inspired you to do more? Etc… 

Tag all of your positive and inspiring Gillian posts with #30 Days of Gillian. 

Let’s appreciate Gillian, not for what she’s wearing, or what she looks like, but for what she has done for humanity, and what she can teach us for our own futures. 


“Let’s practice what we preach; and with the acceptance that we expect from others, let’s stop being so damn judgmental, and crucifying everyone who doesn’t fit into our boxed-in perceptions of what is right.” ~ Gillian Anderson


  • Me: Undertale is a fantastic game, and an unforgettable experience. It's a wonderfully well-crafted deconstruction of the tendency towards violence, the illusion of choice, and the short-sighted 'us versus them' binary that pervades video games and interactive media. It shows that there are many more compelling and truly mature stories that can be told in the medium, if only developers and consumers saw the potential. I can't wait for games to be influenced by Undertale, which proved that telling much kinder, more thoughtful stories is not only possible but welcomed. I believe the effect Undertale will have on the industry will only serve to elevate the status of video games as a true artistic medium, and that time cannot come soon enough.
  • Also me: HELL YEAH! RIP AND TEAR! RIP AND TEAR! EAT THIS, DEMON SCUM! SHOTGUN TO THE FACE! RUN YOU LITTLE IMPS RUN! I'VE GOT A ROCKET LAUNCHER AND I'M NOT AFRAID TO FIRE IT IN AN ENCLOSED SPACE!

Sometimes when I get bummed out by the world and how terrible people are I remember that in the 1990s Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny wouldn’t even be in a room together off camera but twenty years later they’re best friends.

It’s often said that you can’t change your spots, that people never really change. I call bullshit. People grow. They learn to see the good in each other and appreciate the rest for making them who they are. And that’s pretty fucking beautiful.
