holy shit what?… i just.
There is fanart floating around as well :/
I… am speechless actually. The urge to give up on humankind is strong tonight…
70/500 black & white edits of EXO
something about kai’s new styling was ringing a bell, but i only realised when i saw this pic of him.
Who the fuck makes actual photo edits of the Ferry disaster in South Korea?
You wanna inform people? Take a god damn press photo and put the info underneath.
But how the fuck can someone be so tasteless as to turn on their photoshop and start basically scrapbooking the death of people into something “visually appealing”? Photoshopping the quotes from the sms onto crying people’s faces, ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS?
This is a human tragedy, not a god damn fandom project! Grow up and have some sense and some fucking respect, dammit!
I will never get over the fact that Peter Jackson and his LOTR crew actually caved to whiny dudebros on the Internet who couldn’t handle a woman with a larger role in their movies.
It feels like Tauriel is a late excuse for their cowardice back then when TTT was in production.
Oh my God, part 2.
i am SO MAD RIGHT NOW. like. FURIOUS. just. ugh
did you know that Arwen was supposed to show up in the Two Towers and fight at Helm’s Deep?
Because I didn’t know. Arwen was my entry point into fandom, period. Arwen was. Like, I can’t even begin to tell you…
Nooooo! I knew they had cut a scene of Arwen from Helm’s Deep, but this is the first time I’ve seen visuals of it, and I never knew she was going to be fighting. This makes me so sad and angry >:’(
ASGJGHKDGJGF NO BUT IMAGINE INSTEAD OF ARWEN RIDING BACK TO RIVENDELL WHEN SUPPOSEDLY LEAVING M-E, SHE DECIDES TO TAKE A DETOUR TO LORIEN AND SHE RUNS INTO HALDIR AND HIS MERRY BAND OF HELM’S DEEP-BOUND ARCHERS AND SHE’S LIKE WHAT A MARVELLOUS COINCIDENCE
HALDIR HAS A MINI-NERVOUS BREAKDOWN B/C THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE MOST EXCITING THING HE’S DONE IN LIKE 500 YEARS EXCEPT WITH THE ADDITION OF LORD ELROND’S BELOVED ONLY DAUGHTER RIDING INTO BATTLE WITH THEM IT SUDDENLY GOT MORE EXCITING THAN HE WAS HOPING FOR
BUT ARWEN HAS THIS WAY OF LOOKING AT DUDES WHO ARE ABOUT TO PROTEST HER INVOLVEMENT, THIS LITTLE INNOCENTLY CURIOUS SIDEWAYS GLANCE LIKE, YOU WERE SAYING??
SO INSTEAD OF ‘MY LADY ARE YOU SURE THIS IS—’ WHAT COMES OUT OF HALDIR IS ‘ITWOULDBEANHONOUR’
AND THIS IS THE STORY OF HOW ARWEN UNDOMIEL RIDES INTO HELM’S DEEP ONE FINE EVENING, SMUGLY SWEEPING PAST THE RANKS TOWARDS ARAGORN, WHO IS TRYING HIS DAMNEDEST NOT TO GRIN BECAUSE HE WAS DOING A MENTAL COUNTDOWN TO THIS MOMENT AND SHE WAS RUNNING SLIGHTLY LATE.
And do you know WHY she was cut out? Because “fans” caught wind of this during production and were complaining ALL OVER THE INTERNET about how this was “against the book”.
And what followed was some of the most vile misogyny I have ever seen in this fandom. But to cut the story short: Peter Jackson and his team caved and instead wrote Haldir into the scene.
That material should still be somewhere. They filmed the whole Helm’s Deep sequence with her and edited her out of background shots afterwards.
And this is why I will forever side eye the Tolkien purists, especially the white dudebro faction.
Broadway productions pale in comparison of the perfection of French musical theater.
Compared to Notre dame de Paris or Romeo et Juliette most stuff that has been on Broadway (and west end tbh) in the past 10 years just sounds so generic and stuck in the early 90’s ALW craze. (And I like ALW, but he has started a trend that has simply become stale by now.)
The musicals that came out of France and Austria over the past 15 years or so just seem to fit my taste to a t - they do something vastly different I feel..
Damn, I need more money for Paris-trips. Definitely. Though Russia does very good productions of the French musicals as well. Good alternative.
Peggy is the one to get stuck in ice in and survive the century. Pepper doesn’t get rid of Extremis and becomes Rescue. Bruce Banner stays under the radar leaving Betty as the authority in gamma radiation. Jane retains some of the Aether’s powers. Thor is busy ruling Asgard, therefore Sif is the one tasked to retrieve the Tesseract. Director Fury rounds them all up along with Black Widow for his Avengers Initiative and, Barton being compromised, Maria Hill steps up as the marksman of the team.
tldr; the ladies save the world instead
I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…
When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.
Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.
Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.
…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.
So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.—
"What’s up with chicks and science?"
Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.
