Because all the hate in the tag and our askboxes (hey anonbabes) lately is freakin’ hilarious and I love analyzing the shit out of things if they involve fictional characters and their fictional relationships SO LET’S GET TO IT.
oh i wonder who this is its a total mystery
oh my fuck dmmd has voices in
im going to need headphones at certain parts arent i
Sir Ian had to act to these stands with the actors’ faces pasted on them. It’s hilarious. xD But at the same time, my heart also goes out to Sir Ian.
now this is neat
Now this is a professional.
"In order to shoot the dwarves and a large Gandalf, we couldn’t be in the same set. All I had for company was 13 photographs of the dwarves on top of stands with little lights – whoever’s talking flashes up. Pretending you’re with 13 other people when you’re on your own, it stretches your technical ability to the absolute limits. I cried, actually. I cried. Then I said out loud, ‘This is not why I became an actor’. Unfortunately the microphone was on and the whole studio heard.”
– Sir Ian McKellen (x)
i found out at supanova at a panel that originally one of the setworkers put little Xs in coloured tape on the floor to depict where the characters would be from gandalfs point of view. she was telling him which colour meant which actor when he cut in with a ‘thank you very much my dear…but im colourblind.’
i would have died in embarrassment, and then died again laughing afterward.
Disney Princesses in chronological order
They get stronger. Like more independent, more willed, more like they can handle themselves. It’s like a reflection of society in general. Over time, girls have gotten more independent and willed and stuff.
Where the fuck is Mulan?
saving China whilst not being royalty
Kida is missing though
Because Kida is a queen you dolt
and yet elsa is there
I’m not a graphic designer, but here’s a mockup of how I’d like the Tumblr dashboard to look.
1.) Replace the words “liked your post” etc. with the actual like/reblog icons. There’s no purpose why that info should be shown twice to the user.
2.) Disregard the words “your video” “your audio” etc in the notification. That info is already highlighted to the user from the post/video icons on the far right.
3.) Remove the like/reblog icons from the user’s avatar so we can see their full picture.
4.) Make the font slightly brighter so it contrasts better with the dark background.
Aside from visually looking better, this would be so much easier to read, understand, and click on links. The like/reblog icons would even separate the username from the blog post title so that it wasn’t just a long string of jumbled text. This solves everything.
Aristotle’s Modes of Persuasion (inspired by the hundreds of other ones floating around this site)
[[Bonus Hans that isn’t related it any way to the modes of persuasion at all but needed to be done regardless]]:
reblogging for Hans
Imagine you started a nationwide book club about thirty years ago and you marketed it almost exclusively to girls and women. You release all kinds of books, but for some reason or another you decided to brand reading as a hobby for women.
Despite this, boys and men join the club because they also enjoy reading. Maybe they’re quiet at first because they don’t assume it’s a big deal, or maybe they just feel kinda weird liking a “girl’s thing” because of how our society is about gender roles.
Now imagine years go by aaaand…the internet happens. Suddenly there is a huge forum for people with shared interests to gather and communicate, to find conventions and to discuss their favorite books. This book club, now a huge industry with an enormous and active community, is seemingly dominated by women. Reading is still “theirs”, it’s a feminine hobby. But men are starting to show up more and more.
The women are largely attracted to the idea of being with a man who reads, because it’s something they enjoy very much and up to this point they assumed no dudes were interested in it for some reason (marketing by your industry)
Now men see that women like this, and they are confused by the fact that they think men don’t read. So they announce that yes, they enjoy reading and they are dudes. Some women are excited to find guys that share their most cherished hobby, and some are doubtful that these men are REALLY interested in reading.
The excited women place the “boy reader” concept on a pedestal, which in turn causes more boys and men to speak up and state that they too like reading. Most everyone likes attention and everyone likes to be praised. It is not a negative thing, it is entirely natural.
The women who are doubtful take it upon themselves to test the men. In what year did Tolstoy write Anna Karenina? What was the name for the religion in Cat’s Cradle and what was it about? What was the name of the book O’Brien gave Winston in 1984?
The questions get more and more specific as the men answer them correctly, and if they miss any they are immediately written off as “fake boy readers”. This is because for some reason deep down the women doing the quizzing don’t believe men have the capacity to enjoy reading as much as ladies do.
To add to this, other men also begin to judge the reading habits of boy readers to assert that THEY are the only guys who REALLY like books. “So the last series you finished was Harry Potter???? Casual.” They do this because they have bought into the idea that reading is for women, that they are very unique for enjoying a woman’s hobby, and they also think maybe if they attack other men they will see their own status elevated to ”real boy reader”
So these men feel compelled to prove their worth to other people who share their hobby. They feel compelled to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they are indeed men and they read.
Suddenly they’re everywhere and they’re mad at being treated like shit and they are vocal about the bullshit hoops they’ve had to jump through just to be taken seriously, to have simple discussions about the books they love.
Imagine someone asking these men
"What does your gender have to do with reading?"
According to the captions of the first Thor movie, the battle between the Jotuns and Asgardians take place in Norway, 965 AD. Around this time, Loki was born.
In Thor 2 the life expectancy was stated to be around 5,000. The average human life in developed countries from what I’ve gathered is approximately 82.
Therefore, in human years Loki is somewhere around 17.
#are you telling me loki is just going through his rebellious teenage emo stage
Because black people cant be anything other than slaves and hoodrats according to them.
We cant like science, photography and things. We can’t be complex individuals.
We can’t have our stories be seen as universal because Blackness is tainted by white supremacy.
I’ve read Spider-Man since I was 7 years old, and if you read it too, and can’t see that the most important things about the character have nothing to do with race, you’re a piece of shit. Peter Parker has nothing in his character that has a single fucking thing to do with the color of his skin. He is brave, he is insecure, he is funny, he is brilliant, and he has essentially the shittiest luck of any super-hero.
I’m actually furious at the “nerds” who said this.
Those guys are just racists with comic books in their hands.
If you read comics and don’t see the massive disparity in respresentation between white superheroes and superheroes who are people of color, you need to put down a comic and look at the world around you.
You can’t throw a rock without hitting 17 different caucasian comic book characters. This actually made me so angry, I’m not sorry.
*I also feel like I don’t even know how much of a right I have to participate in this discussion. I’m sorry if I come off like I even understand the issue in all it’s complexity, I’m just… angry.*
All heroes are like that. ^ its never about skin tone its about ttheir personality.
Nope. That’s not true at all. Part of Magneto’s history, and what is integral to his story, is being a German Jew.
The X-man Storm is a Kenyan woman who grew up in abject poverty, and was praised as a goddess when her powers developed.
Luke Cage is a superhero whose whole life was defined by his struggle as an African American. He was the hero of Harlem, and an example to other inner-city kids that they could rise above the expectations others could put on you, and be more than what people labelled you as.
Captain America was the paragon of what people in the 40’s thought of as the American Ideal.
A lot of characters are so non-descript, and poorly fleshed out in their backstory that swapping race isn’t a big deal. But if someone presented me with The Black Panther, a Wakandan king (albeit a fictional African nation) played by Leonardo DiCaprio, I’d flip my shit.
It’s in the same theme of Tom Cruise being best samurai in the Last Samurai. It’s Kevin Costner being the best Indian American in Dances with Wolves. All because they’re white. It’s insulting.
It’s just that in the case of Peter Parker specifically that his race doesn’t play a huge race in his development as a human being.
Peter Parker was white by default. That’s it.
We don’t need more representation of white people in media. We’ve got that fucking covered.
Canada’s rainbow money
Fun fact for Americans: our money is technically made of plastic and they won’t get wet/gross when you accidentally wash them, and you also can’t rip any bills.
Everybody is in love with canadian money, the thing is who isn’t?
The funniest thing ever is to see canadians try to use american money. One of my friends asked me “HOW DO YOU GUYS KNOW WHICH ONE IS WHICH?! THEY’RE ALL THE SAME COLOR!”
its called reading the numbers
americans learn at an early age to differentiate between the faces of old white men
Why is the queen of England on Canadian money?
Because England basically raised Canada until we were old enough to make our own decisions.
America left home super early
and made bad life choices as a result.
australia got kicked out but they turned out alright
'murrica's got no excuse
omg that kid totally just phased through his body i cant believe they let this go to the final cut thats so lazy. this film has a multi million dollar budget this is unacceptable how could the animators miss that
omg wow, I’m so disappointed in you Dreamworks. I thought you guys were professionals.
ya, lazy much? Honestly, I am disappoint.
This happens several times throughout the film, especially to the Jack Frost character. In one scene, we can see him clearly positioned between the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus…
But in the next shot, he’s gone completely!
This is just lazy animation! If Dreamworks thought that we won’t notice, they were seriously kidding themselves.
And people wonder why I’m in the DreamWorks fandom.
