with those costumes

I think that one of my favorite things as a kid was right after a powwow my ma and I decided to go with her then fiance to an ice cream shop with some of our regalia and leathers still on. Out of nowhere a little girl comes out, points and yells:


My ma without missing a beat turned around, pointed at her and screamed, “LOOK JEFF! A WHITE GIRL!”

And I think about that moment a lot.


“So stop making that face at me…”


Fantasy on Ice 2017 opening!

@katzirasu: Viktor Nikiforov and Katsuki Yuri with C3? [original form | I am not taking any more requests for this meme]

First artwork for the year! Unexpectedly really got into this anime, these two make me so happy ;_;

Things that piss me off today: fucking WEDGE HEELS on supposedly practical women fighters

It’s the ultimate ‘this is a practical badass lady!’ but wait! She must be TALLER! Her legs must look LONGER! No! LONGER THAN THAT!

It’s annoying when they do it on Black Widow, who needs to be wearing some good tactical boots when she’s fighting, but at least they mostly keep them out of shot, as far as I recall.

Wonder woman is wearing fucking TOWERING wedge heels and it looks ridiculous. And Gal Gadot is already a tall woman, so I have no idea what they’re even trying here apart from altering her proportions to make her legs look twice the length of her torso.

Check out the height on those suckers when she’s climbing the ladder to go into No Man’s Land:

And then later when she’s fighting in the warehouse in Veld:

but then in the stuntie shots…

Because surprise! You can’t actually do those things in those ridiculous heels. And there is no reason Wonder Woman, an Amazon, would give a shit about looking taller or making her legs look longer.

Just, costume departments, just fucking spare us already and give female heroes some normal fucking boots please. Thank you.

A bunch of things that have happened at my school.
  • The graphics teacher here is seen and worshipped as a legend. Some of the graphics kids made hundreds of stickers of just his face and stuck them on stop signs all over the world.
  • Some girl got caught piercing another girl’s bellybutton during lunch. Like ya do.
  • Our TV class (they film the school news, aka “the buzz” every week) went to California, but some of them got arrested for underage drinking while there.
  • Last year, my US history teacher kicked open his door while wearing a jedi robe, proclaiming “IT IS TIME TO PLAY DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS!” (after which he made students play dnd with him)
  • My friend went up to our creative writing teacher and yelled “I’M GAY!” to which the teacher responded “WE KNOW!”
  • We have a huge rivalry with another school. Multiple times, both schools have been told to tone it down with the hatred. Football games are insane.
  • My marine science teacher made a student hold a spider while using “it doesn’t have many mitochondria” as reassurance.
  • This kid on instagram threatened to shoot up the school on a saturday. No one really caught onto the saturday part, so everyone freaked out.
  • We take spirit week VERY seriously - during the most recent one, people were running around the school in those inflatable dinosaur costumes. Also, we have “jazzercise thursday” aka seniors dress up in neon clothing and sprint around the school with whistles, consequently making all the teachers crave death.
  • The graphics teacher found ink buckets in the ceiling of his lab. No one really knows how they got there??
  • Because this is the south, if you go to the student parking lot, I guarantee you can find at least three jeeps lined up next to each other.
  • In french class sophomore year, we were being taught how to count in french. The french word for eighty (quatre-vingts) literally transltes to four twenties. My best friend stood up and screamed, at the top of his lungs, “FOUR TWENTY!” and got kicked out of the classroom ten minutes before the bell.

That’s all I have for now; I’m sure I’ll be back with more.

Highlights of Eddie Redmayne’s Performance in Jupiter Ascending, About Which I Shall Talk Forever Now
  • His voice, which sounds as if he’s been guzzling crude oil direct from the well for the last six millennia. His throat has been corroded by sheer evil, and yet he can summon up a clear, intelligible shout when needed (”I CREATE LIFE”), which is more than I can do. As with approximately 80% of the movie, there is absolutely no reason for this voice to exist, and yet it does. It is nothing less than a gift from Redmayne’s generous soul.
  • The way his eyes grow dark and wet over…I dunno. It’s never really clear. Balem as written has absolutely no inner life, but Balem as acted has a soul of smog and capitalism. The tears are just his eyes irritated by his own internal pollution. 
  • He commits to those costumes. He owns them. Redmayne plays Balem as if he personally killed every animal that went into his endless black-leather wardrobe. He plays Balem as if he’s always on a catwalk for the latest in space-S&M fashion, and he’s the only model. 
  • The way his face is stuck in a constant grimace. He is made of contempt: for his lackeys, for his family, for everything. He hates himself so much that he follows the absurdly byzantine laws of his universe as a form of self-flagellation. (The Aegis is so laughably ineffectual and the Abrasax family so immanently powerful that there is absolutely no reason for Balem to obey the laws if he didn’t want to.) The only thing he likes is pain. The constant aching facial muscles must be part of that.
  • Balem gestures with the precision of a dancer and walks with the stiff disapproval of a Victorian matron. How is it possible for someone to look like they have a broomstick up their butt and yet ooze around the set like an oil slick? Eddie Redmayne is a divine being. Let us now praise him.
  • I honestly don’t think there is any one component of the performance that could be called Good Acting, but put them all together and Balem becomes a top-tier sci-fi villain. Redmayne got the Oscar for the wrong movie.
