this was capped from the documentary

While you were writing essays about hating my favorite character, i was busy reading the wikipedia page about the history and manufacturing process of soap. While you were eradicating problematic content from your fandom, i was watching three documentaries about fungus simultaneously at X2 speed. While you were doxing a twelve year old i was dipping week old pine needles in beer caps full of rubbing alcohol.

In my American History class we're watching a documentary on WWI and II and the narrator is Jeremy Renner so now I have a headcannon that Clint's a big history buff and that he realizes that he's making history with Cap, a guy he's looked up to all his life, and that now and for ages to come kids, including his own, are going to look up to him too. Idk I'm a sap and CLINT DESERVES SOME LOVE. (Also it's really awesome that he gets that love from Nat and his wife in their polyamorous relationship)

I’m personally not a huge Clint guy (at least not MCU Clint, comics Clint is a different story) but Clint being a huge dork who loves history and loves the idea of kicking ass with his childhood hero? I’m down with that. Also I could maybe consider being slightly okay with MCU Clint having a wife if I knew they were poly and he was with Natasha too

Some of Cathy Sarver’s photographs of George Harrison, and parts of the note George wrote to Cathy, Carol and Lucy after All Things Must Pass was completed, screen capped from the documentary Beatles Stories: A Fab Four Fan’s Ultimate Road Trip.

“An Apple Scruff was a Beatle fan that came to Apple every day Monday through Friday. Everybody knows the name of their business was Apple, and we hung out on the front steps of their building, waiting for them to arrive. And then once they’d arrived, we were waiting for them to leave.When George finished the song ‘Apple Scruffs’, he asked us to all come in. And of course, we were dumbfounded because we were never asked to come in. We’re all sitting in there and they turn on the song ‘Apple Scruffs’. ‘Apple Scruffs, how I love you.’ It was amazing. We were all in a little huddle around him. He handed us this letter.

[reading in full] ‘Dear Carol, Cathy and Lucy. Now as it’s finished - and off to the factory. I thought I’d tell you that I haven’t a clue whether it’s good or bad as I’ve heard it too much now! During the making of this epic album (most expensive album EMI ever had to pay for) I have felt positive and negative - pleased and displeased, and all the other opposites expected to be found in this material world. However, the one thing that didn’t waver, seems to me, to be ‘you three’ and Mal, always there as my sole supporters, and even during my worst moments I always felt the encouragement from you was sufficient to make me finish the thing. Thanks a lot, I am really overwhelmed by your apparent undying love, and I don’t understand it at all! Love from George (P.S. Don’t hold this evidence against me.) P.P.S. Phil Spector loves you too!

He was a sweet man.” - Cathy Sarver, Beatles Stories: A Fab Four Fan’s Ultimate Road Trip [x]

Dylan playing Soul Calibur with probably Zack and other friends (?) and laughing like a high octave goofball to someone going “Get the fuck out! Get the fuck out!” in Donald Duck speak.

You’ll hear Brooks’ voice, and then Dyl’s, near the end of the clip while you see the visual of Zack with his baseball cap on. That is just the audio bit from the Frankenstein Roast; the documentary over lapses the audio of the Roast over the game playing sequence. It’s slightly confusing.. 

“There was a time when the only time and place where you could really appreciate these magnificent beings was in some kind of water park. An argument was created and sustained that this justified their presence and that entertainment was justified somehow. However, we now have so many beautiful documentaries, photographs and insights into these wonderful whales that there is no possible justification for keeping them from their natural environment. These whales have given so much pleasure for all of their lives to so many people that surely they deserve to go free and be where they belong.”

Streaming giant Netflix has acquired worldwide rights to “Tyke Elephant Outlaw,” an Australian-made documentary about an escaped circus elephant.

The film focuses on an animal which in 1994 broke away from captivity in Honolulu and killed her trainer. In doing so, it sparked a debate about the use of animals as entertainment, which recently resulted in a change in the law in Hawaii.

The film last week had three performances at the Hawaii International Film Festival.

“Tyke” was directed and produced by leading Australian documentary filmmakers Susan Lambert and Stefan Moore, and co-produced by Megan McMurchy. It was produced with financial assistance from Screen Australia, Screen NSW and Voiceless. It is distributed by ABC Commercial and documentary specialist Dogwoof.

“Like the classic animal rebellion film ‘King Kong,’ Tyke is the central protagonist in a tragic but redemptive drama that combines trauma, outrage, insight and compassion,” said Lambert.

The film has been broadcast on the BBC Storyville strand, CBCs The Passionate Eye in Canada and will be screened by DRTV in Denmark.

Netflix will give it a U.S. airing in December.
Worldwide release will be in August, 2016.

WATCH THE TRAILER

Errol Flynn at the wheel of his schooner, ‘The Zaca’, in a publicity still issued for the film, 'Cruise of the Zaca’, 1952. The documentary was both directed by and starring Flynn. 

The trip started in August 1946. On board were Flynn, his father, his wife Nora, and John Decker, Howard Hill, Professor Carl Hubbs, Charles Gross and Jerry Corneya. After a month of sailing, many of the group left, including Flynn’s wife and father, but Flynn pushed on through the Panama Canal to the Caribbean to Cap Haitien. Before going through the Canal, Flynn stayed in Acapulco where the Zaca had been hired to appear in The Lady from Shanghai (1948).
Due to Flynn’s 1948 divorce from Nora, release of the film was held up until December 1952. Although shot on 16mm the film was blown up to 35mm.The critic from the Los Angeles Times said “it is rather a family affair with Flynn narrating effectively enough. (x) Watch here.

“…It doesn’t go like that, it goes like that, but it goes like that and it goes through everything, and it can be - you know what I mean? Just one bit of music can be pop, jazz, classic, or whatever you’d wanna do to it.” - George Harrison

“So what kind of relationship do you and Paul have these days?

‘We don’t have a relationship.’ Long pause. 'I think of him as a good friend, really, but a friend I don’t have that much in common with anymore. You know, you meet people in your life, or you’re remarried and then you’re divorced. You wish the other person well, but life has taken you to other places. To friendlier climes.’

Does that mean you won’t be going to his show?

'You mean because I happen to be in L.A. while he’s playing here? No. I don’t want to go to his show because… I’ve heard all them tunes anyway. And secondly, I was not in town when Ringo did his show. I would have loved to have seen that, and I don’t want Ringo to think that I’m not supporting him and I’m supporting Paul. I do wish him well,’ George sighs. 'There’s always a place in my heart for Paul… and Linda… and Hamish Stuart, I like Hamish. But you know, don’t look back.’” - Musician, March 1990 [x]

Q: “Does Paul still piss you off (tell us the truth)”

George Harrison: “‘Scan not a friend with microscopic glass - you know his faults - then let his foibles pass.’ Old Victorian proverb. I’m sure there’s enough about me that pisses [Paul] off, but I think we have now grown old enough to realize that we’re both pretty damn cute.” - Yahoo webchat, 15 February 2001 [x

Q: “What do you miss the most about George?
