"Deleted" scene from Lego Batman
  • Superman *being interviewed*: Yeah, Zod and I have been enemies for a long time, he's like my greatest enemy.
  • *LexCorp Tower in Metropolis*
  • Mercy Graves: Sir? Are you alright?
  • Lex: *sobbing* I'm fine.

Little Jeremy Heere headcanons I’ve been thinking of/writing

  • Jeremy has the wORST BRAIN TO MOUTH FILTER EVER (and when him are Michael are dating it KILLS Michael cause he just randomly blurts things and its like ‘dude wtf stop being sexy with what you say’ and Jeremy’s just all ‘I’m noT TRYING??? WTF’ (credit to @groovymutants for Michael’s reaction))
  • The absolute worst at remembering to eat (especially when he’s not feeling great)
  • Asked Michael to prom by getting them matching Player One and Player Two bowties as well as pacman chocolates 
  • Cannot do laundry to save his life he always lets everything pile up 
  • You know this boy has like 10 million star wars shirts and theyre all slightly different 
  • When he first realized he was bi he was all ‘man if i could just date a dude who’s exactly like Michael that would be perfect’ ‘im gay, man’ ‘HOLY FUCK’
  • I feel like this dude would either be a computer science major or go into video game design (either the programming side or the art side I havent decided)
  • Totally stuck with theater bc you know that boy loves it
  • Is EXTREMELY easy to fluster like holy shit that boy goes red in a second 

I might make a part two when I think of more

I sometimes wonder what would have happened if BOTH Megamind and Metroman had landed in the Scott’s mansion that night.  If they’d both been adopted at the same time and were raised as brothers.  If their nemesis battles were changed to sibling rivalries on who could be the biggest force for Good in the city, always trying to one-up the other in villains defeated and kittens rescued, but teaming up when a REAL threat loomed.

Also, Megamind would totally be the nerdy Theater kid and Metroman would be the Jock and give Megs no end of grief about how he looses his head over the cute Editor of the school newspaper, Roxanne. But he’s the only one allowed to pick on Megs. Cause they’re brothers.

Please, Ichigo totally owns up to being a nerd. I bet he would totally be a theater nerd if things had gone differently and his mom was alive. He was a mama's boy and I can totally see him doing little skits for her or reciting poems he looked up specifically for her. And now I've made myself sad D:

If it makes you feel better, I can totally imagine him as a theater nerd in canon, too. Can you imagine the theater club’s reaction when the biggest badass in the school, who regularly chews up yakuza-wannabes, suddenly shows up to an audition and just. Nails it. The director is in tears. He’s never heard Iago’s soliloquy delivered quite like that. The club is in tears, too, but more because they’re imagining an audience filled with gang members and all the various people Ichigo surrounds himself with. 


Hey weirdos!  For the past few months, I’ve done something unprecedented - I’ve stayed off the internet.

It was hard but I had to do because I’ve been trying to stay SPOILER FREE for the movie event of the new millennium!  This December was the revival of one of the most famous sci-fi franchises in the world.  Yep, you know what I’m talking about: DOGCOPTER.

So for three months, I sequestered myself from all internet communications.  I handed over my laptop and my phone to my little bro, Peedee, and ordered him to bury them in an undisclosed location in the deserts of New Mexico.

I think he just put them in the walk-in freezer at the fry shop.  

I won’t lie, it was hard.  But I calmed my nerves by reacquainting myself with the “Young Adult Conspiracy” section at my local library.  And instead of getting in arguments with internet trolls, I got in real life arguments!  With my dad!

And after months of avoiding and spoilers or teasers or trailers, I was in line for Dogcopter 4, and then some dummy walking out of the theater TOTALLY SPOILED EVERYTHING and was like, “I can’t believe that Dogcopter’s parents are actually cats.”  

Ug!  I hope you’ve seen the movie because that’s pretty much the big ending.  Dogcopter dies defending the planet but then he comes back to life because he’s actually part cat and cats have 9 lives.  Anyway, the movie was pretty much ruined.  So now I’m back.  Spoilers are the worst.

sometimes I stop and I remember that the one and only movie I am waiting to come out in theater at the moment is a movie about two kids who hypnotized a dude and when he’s under the hypnosis he runs around in his underpants and I might see it with my mom cause she saw the trailer and she thought it was funny

Kingkiller Theater AU
  • So I was thinking of modern day! Kvothe and how if he were in college, he would totally do all the theater clubs. He wouldn’t be a theatre major, probably be undecided, just loving most of his classes. He would be that kid that always got leads, and everyone was torn between hating him and loving him because he’s so good. He is also superstitious and forbids anyone to talk about “the Scottish play” and randomly quotes obscure Shakespeare plays (he knows the popular ones too, but he’s a low key hipster) and totally gets everyone singing along to whatever song is stuck in his head. 
  • Wil is a lighting genius, and it’s something he “just does for fun” which blows everyone away, because he’s amazing. He also generally gets what he asks for because he tends to be on everyone’s good side. 
  • Sim works on designing sets and he and Wil work together and bounce ideas off each other and than go to propose ideas to the director together. They also tend to build them together, but only Sim paints them.  
  • Denna is an actress, she disappears and slips in just as rehearsal is starting. Her voice makes jaws drop and she gets her characters on a deep emotional level. 
  • Fela mostly acts, but she hates being pigeon holed as as that beautiful girl and people think she (and Denna) both get cast because of their looks, but she actually provides a lot of humor to characters that they often lack. 
  • Mola is stage manager and very good. No one crosses her, but if they do, she gets scary. She’s a bit like Lorren that way. Her word is law. 
  •  Devi is director, who loves when her actors make choices with their characters, but is a control freak about what happens. And her shows are always amazing, despite the last minute disasters that strike and flawlessly fixes them. 
  • Deoch is the stunts coordinator and choreographer
  • Stanchion is the music director and conductor
  • Basil is always stuffed in the back in the ensemble 
  • Elodin is the faculty member who supports them but he’s never there when they need him and randomly shows up. And makes them do weird warm ups when he’s there. 
  • Manet is always type casted as the old wise guy and has all the stories of “that one time when” and VERY superstitious. 

I have more details about this au and might do a part 2

Grateful Dead Are Very Much Alive

Ralph Gleason, San Francisco Chronicle, 19 March 1967

The Grateful Dead, a loud and very much alive Haight-Ashbury rock band, is hippier and happier than almost any group that comes to mind. 

They’re a fun-loving, far-out group with a hard-driving sound which is surfacing above the vast San Francisco rock underground. 

The Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Charlatans, Country Joe and the Fish, Big Brother and the Holding Co. and several other bizarre bands have plugged San Francisco into a rock movement which now exerts a nationwide influence on pop music.

One of the principal reasons is Jerry (Captain Trips) Garcia, 24, lead guitar for the Grateful Dead. 

Garcia, regarded by some critics as one of the best guitarists in the country, used to teach his instrument in a Palo Alto music store. He earned his nickname, friends say, because “everything is a trip with him." 

Other members of the Dead are just as alive. There’s Ron McKernan, 21, on organ, harp, and vocal, known as "Pig Pen,” for his outrageous appearance: long black hair, Indian head band, long black mustache, short, hefty build and a much-worn vest. He has been described as “one of the major bluesmen in America." 

Youngest is Bob Weir, 19, thin and soft-looking, with straight, very long hair. Weir brings his own sort of richness to the rhythm guitar. 

Phil Lesh, 27, is an astoundingly good bass player. He shares song-writing chores with Garcia. 

Bill Sommers, 21, played drums with about 12 rock bands before he "finally settled on the Grateful Dead.”

They pocket concert fees as readily as any group, but they play only on their own terms. They’d rather play for free in the park (and often do) than for money in an atmosphere which will “bring us down." 

"We’re not a recording band,” said Garcia. “We’re a dance band." 

Something about the Dead’s music can’t be captured on records. Partly it’s because they draw from so many different idioms: blues, country and western, popular music, even classical. "We’re musical thieves,” Garcia noted. “We steal from everywhere." 

It has more to do with the excitement of playing weekly concerts to very tuned-in dance-hall audiences. These aren’t ordinary concerts. They’re psychedelic and extreme examples of total environmental theater, which engages all the senses: thunderous rock music, light shows that burst and flow in choruses of color, hundreds of dancing young people, incense floating through your mind.

The Grateful Dead tried to capture this gut-level excitement in their album called The Grateful Dead. Though there’s a taste of the Fillmore Auditorium and Avalon Ballroom, the full flavor doesn’t come through. 

However, the album can stand alone. It contains some fine work, such as the strangely haunting "Morning Dew,” the bluesy “Good Mornin’ Little Schoolgirl” and “Viola Lee Blues,” which is as close to jazz as Paul Butterfield’s “East-West.”

The songs convey a sense of integration in the playing that has come about through the Dead’s having played and lived together, sharing experiences and dreams, for nearly three years. With their two managers and an assortment of friends they have occupied a nine-room Victorian house one block from Haight Street. 

But they are leaving the Haight-Ashbury soon. They expect to live for awhile in the Southwest, perhaps Santa Fe, New Mexico. 

“We’ve been squeezed out by tourists and Tenderloin types,” said Rock Scully, one of their managers.
