Part of the story is this really epic romance between The Joker and Harley Quinn. It’s a fascinating love story because is it love-love? Is it love-hate? There’s a lot of ways to argue what that relationship is and what it means.

Why is The Joker obsessed with her? Does he love her? If he did, could he admit that? I think those are some of the mysteries that are going to be left up to the people watching this film to make those decisions themselves.

Flotsam and Jetsam: Doomsday for the Deceiver (1986)

My All-Music Guide review of Flotsam and Jetsam’s debut doesn’t even hint at how much I love this LP, let alone the ballsy and precocious ambition of these metal-thrashing-mad Arizona kiddos. * 

Though it’s a little rough around the edges (mostly low-rent production and some clunky arrangements), Doomsday for the Deceiver showcases both convincingly short bursts of moshing intensity (“Desecrator,” “Iron Tears”) and accomplished, multi-part epics (“Metalshock,” the spectacular title track).

Somewhere in-between these extremes, F&J conjured up even more very strong material in the self-introducing “Hammerhead” and Lizzie Borden-inspired “She Took an Axe” (written about the axe murderer, not the L.A. glam metal band).

The latter tandem even take a few stabs at humor (a rarity in metal, of course) courtesy of bassist Jason Newsted, who also doubled as a capable lyricist for much of this LP (see the very serious “Der Führer”), even when he was recklessly cramming too many words into some tunes.

This considerable songwriting range, in spite of their budgetary shortcomings, certainly helped Flotsam and Jetsam’s case as a promising Baby-tallica and, by extension, no doubt strengthened Newsted’s credentials when he was called up to the big leagues by the real thing, within one year of this LP’s release.

Those of us who worshiped Doomsday and believed in F&J’s potential were left to wonder what could have been had Newsted stuck around; but nobody in their right mind could obviously blame him for his decision.


* And I’m not alone – Kerrang! magazine gave the album an ultra-rare KKKKKK review (that’s 6 Ks) out of a possible KKKKK.

adc was just a li'l cutesie nervous nugget ball on that stage accepting her mtv award. when & after she mentioned jroth+writers people were up in arms (mainly online). frankly, they had every right to do so because most fans were wrongfully baited. with reflection, it made sense for adc to thank jroth. he did give her that opportunity. But she took the character beyond his imagination & without doubt lexa is forever legendary. that IS epic on her part. she was being professional (1/2)

(2/2) & her usual gracious self. she thanked & acknowledged fans more than once whilst on stage. loyal fans are still upset. adc is still grateful. both can happen simultaneously and are not mutually exclusive. - verbose anon


especially those who are starting to resent Alycia, those I’ve read with posts and tweets doubting and criticizing her actions towards us, with questions like “how much of her sweetness towards her fans is an act?” guys, seriously, are you hearing yourselves? That’s just.. idk, really. because honestly, I totally get why you’re upset. I got upset too, it stung. Whenever I think about it, it still stings. But I just don’t think it’s right to assume such things about Alycia when we can’t even see like 90% of her. She vanishes to thin air, we experience Alycia drought, we go by weeks and even months with her radio silent. Not to mention we’re all well aware of how private she is. This all doesn’t mean she hates us. We get mixed signals because she rarely ever make appearances aside from these events and her tv show.

I get that it’s hard not to compare her to others, especially to Eliza, but you really should freaking stop doing that. They have very different ways of dealing with fame and fans and sensitive issues.

Just please, before you judge Alycia, keep in mind that we don’t even see enough of her to come up with a verdict(and even then, we should keep from judging her at all, what kind of fans do that) and that she’s always been professional. She’s always thanked Jason for Lexa, like every single time. Go back and look. She’s always thanked him and the writers. We got disappointed because we were expecting her to shade him in some way, we were always expecting something and that’s what’s wrong here. She doesn’t owe us anything, especially not after all the shit that went down.

I wasn’t really surprised when she’s acknowledged Jason & the writers on her speech. It even felt kind of rehearsed, like it’s something she’s used to saying. She was so nervous up there.

But like my verbose anon has said here, she thanked and acknowledged us MORE than she ever did them. And for me, that’s what matters.

Just love her and know that she loves us in her own way. She appreciates us.

If you guys want to know what she thinks of the birthday video the fandom made, then pass it to those who would be there during M&G. Show her the video. I bet she’s probably seen it and loved it.

Heya, Han Solo Worst Time Traveler: When/does he meet Chewie and how many tears?

okay, so you’ve got Ahsoka’s adventure one of those most dangerous game type of things, right? let’s say that while she’s at it, Han also gets his fool ass kidnapped by the very same Trandoshans who’ve got her a little later - just later enough, in fact, that when he wakes up he’s on a ship with a Wookiee prisoner.

a very familiar Wookiee prisoner, who wonders what this kid is doing here in a cage across from him, who is v surprised when the kid says, in fluent Shyriiwook, “Chewbacca? is that - shit, I forgot -”

“I’m sorry, have we MET,” says Chewbacca, suspicious and growly, and the boy - a Jedi Padawan, he realizes, there’s the braid and everything - makes a small, wet-sounding noise. like a laugh, except sadder.

“no,” says the boy, “not in this timeline - fuck, you okay? how’d these assholes get the drop on you, huh, pal?”

“you first, Jedi cub,” says Chewbacca, confused now - timeline? what is this kid talking about?

“I ain’t a CUB,” says the boy, “my name’s Han. Han Solo.”

(later, of course, the ship crashes and they meet up with Ahsoka. Han hugs her, bc he heard she was missing but didn’t know WHERE and baby-Vader was freaking out, last he checked. since this is post-Mortis, Ahsoka knows, and in one of the few quiet moments they can snatch while working on some way to send up a beacon for the Jedi Council to find them and the lost padawans with them, she finds him sitting by himself just outside the hideout.

she sits down next to him, bumps his shoulder. they don’t talk, but Han turns to her and cries a little on her. then she teases him a little, once he’s a little less likely to fly apart bc Chewie is THERE but he doesn’t know him but he’s THERE and he hasn’t been ENSLAVED, about his choices in friends. “now I know why you get along with the Wookiee younglings so well,” she kids. “besides their being taller than you.”

he didn’t know how nice it was to have an older sister, he realizes.)

Epic Strut - Elven Glory Parody

Oh right, I finished something for once.  Made at the request of a redditor who has far better ideas than I do.

I’ll never 100% forgive John Galliano and no one should. What I can say however is that he was the designer that got me interested in fashion and was the first that I ever truly followed. For me, his absence was felt each season and his artistry was missed. This collection finally really felt like John. His amazing mind is back and in my mind the fashion world is far better off with him in it.

anonymous asked:

With parallels of Daryl being held captive by Saviors -vs- Beth at Grady ( according to spoilers) I am worried Daryl may not survive the S7 MSF. If this is the case, I think it is a poor ending to both their individual character arcs and the Bethyl arc as well. What are your thoughts? I hope also you are having a happy summer, and I really enjoy your blog as well. :)

Thank you, love. My summer has been great, especially since I’m working now. *blows a kiss*

Daryl will be fine; he is not going to die. As Scott Gimple wrote almost three years ago, Daryl and Beth are a damn romance novel. Beth’s “death” even fits into that, as a painful, apparently permanent separation is part of every epic romance. TPTB have carefully been promoting Bethyl for years (X) (X) as Bethyl will be the show’s great romance, the show’s power couple. They are not going to throw that away by killing Daryl off right after bringing Beth back.
