With ‘Big,’ director Penny Marshall crafted a timeless classic that is just as enjoyable today as it was in the ’80s. But no matter how many times you’ve seen it, there’s still a ton of behind-the-scenes stories and trivia you probably didn’t know about. This will change the way you watch 'Big'… forever.
so like how are u gonna say "poc are the authorities on whats racist and white people shouldnt talk over them" and then when poc actually call u out be like "nope ur wrong"???? just curious
Y'all. I misunderstood the purpose of her post, mostly because I think that I cede ownership of anything I put online, and also because my thought reading her post was, Wow, this is a big problem that I see a lot but I really don’t have a good answer for? I wonder if I can crowdsource some solutions so that white folks (like me) have other ways to figure out anti-racism that don’t rely on poc, particularly woc, doing that emotional labor (as her post describes)? I already apologized and said that I’d make my own new post so that the OP wouldn’t have to get any new notifications on this one. Cool your jets.
I never thought I’d get to see club penguin’s iceberg tip but here we are, probably 10 years since I stopped believing it was possible, and dreams have come true. (Excuse the sniff in the middle - I was holding back tears)
Just imagine Taylor performing Better Man acoustically, on the guitar or piano, and being transported back to the days of All Too Well on the Red Tour and physically feeling the words she’s singing…….. i’m fine.
some Tadashi Hamada headcanons because why the heck not
–he’s rather sweet and shy to new people, but he opens up pretty easily once he’s introduced to them.
–he’s pretty snarky and sassy around his friends, and he’s a complete and utter jerk to Hiro just because he’s his little brother and he can.
–he sings in the shower. really loudly. like, at the top of his lungs loudly. he’s not a bad singer–actually, he has a beautiful voice–but sometimes Aunt Cass has to tell him to quiet down because people in the café downstairs can hear him over, like, everything
–he’s also a surprisingly great dancer, but sometimes Aunt Cass has to yell at him because his dancing gets a little too suggestive
–he’s terrified of creepy crawlies. whenever he sees one he visibly freaks out, probably makes an unmanly shriek noise, grabs whatever’s close to him and just chucks it at the offending insect. Hiro thinks it’s hilarious.
–he LOVES texting. he’s always texting Hiro and everyone else every chance he gets, and Gogo says he’s addicted to it.
–the little moped/scooter thing he drives in the movie was originally his father’s. normal vehicles never really caught his interest as a kid, but he loved the scooter. his dad would always take him for rides on it, and he promised Tadashi that it would become his when he was old enough. after his parents’ deaths, he never worked up the nerve to even touch his father’s scooter until he was around 16 and got his license. even then he felt bad for tampering with it, but he couldn’t just leave it lying around forever. besides, normal vehicles still didn’t interest him much.
–he sometimes wears glasses, but he only needs them to read.
–when he was four years old and his mother was pregnant with Hiro, he swore up and down that she swallowed a ball. so when Hiro was born, when he saw his little brother for the first time, he said in a very serious voice “that is one weird-looking ball.”
–he loves coffee, and every time Hiro gives him crap about it, he replies with something along the lines of “it’s no worse than those sugary sodas you like to drink.”
–he’s always sneaking sweets from the café downstairs, but he’ll never admit it.
–he’ll also never admit that he sometimes eats Hiro’s gummy bears on him
–he doesn’t watch a whole lot of TV, but when he does find a show that he likes, he gets hooked, and ends up binge-watching it on Netflix for like 12 hours straight
–he prefers soft music to hard music, and upbeat music to edgy music. heavy metal scares him.
–there’s a reason he’s usually wearing a blazer or some sort of coat–he’s always cold!
–he gets slightly cross-eyed when he’s panicked
–he picked up a little bit on Aunt Cass’ baking skills, and he makes the best chocolate chip cookies in San Fransokyo
