Oh. My. God. alsfjsdf I JUST noticed Josh’s new twitter header how did I not notice before

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE REDRAW THIS WITH THE VOLTRON CHARACTERS PLEASE I’LL GIVE YOU MY FIRSTBORN ((and if it’s already been redrawn can someone send it to me))

Jeremy and Kimberly look like they’re not exactly sure how to do it. Bex looks like she’s doing a lazy dab (note the bent left arm). Josh has fucking PERFECT form. Tim is pretty good too. Tyler also, tho he kinda looks more like he’s trying to hide his face than dab

We don’t deserve this cast wth

SLYTHERIN: “I am fed up with slaving away for no recognition. I am sick and tired of having all of my plans frustrated. I’ll show them. I’ll show them all. I’m going to change the world. I’m going to alter the face of the globe.” -Graeme Garden + Tim Brooke-Taylor + Bill Oddie (Graeme Garden: The Goodies: Radio Goodies)

You wanna hold her?

I admire the Monty Python creation and I think they were men of genius, but they were shits. Cleese, Idle, Graham Chapman. They were horrible [as was Bill Oddie of The Goodies].

In those days, women were not meant to be funny. They were meant to be decorative and I was never decorative so they didn’t like me. And I didn’t like them. My confidence and show-off-ness were very reprehensible, according to the people in the [Cambridge] Footlights.

I only like Eric Idle and Tim Brooke-Taylor [of The Goodies] - I recently connected with him and he did apologise. He was sort of shocked and embarrassed because he hadn’t quite realised what had happened. I don’t know how he missed it.

They went into light entertainment and I went into drama so, thankfully, our paths would seldom cross.

I was a pert little madam. I thought I was as good as they were - and they didn’t. And they thought I was just jumped-up. They were minor public schoolboys, where a lot of that attitude springs from, and weren’t used to dealing with women.

This was before feminism. They found me unbearable and the way they showed that was by refusing to speak to me, sending me to Coventry. It meant during the running of the Footlights review - and I was the only girl in 1962 - they did not speak to me at all.

They made it very clear. I’ve never met cruelty like that. It was a horrible, memorable experience.
