ABBEY HELP I'm up waaaaay too late having surprise!Kristen Stewart/Jennifer Lawrence feelings that ambushed me during a second SWATH viewing and then I wrote 700+ words about it and I don't know where it's going but you are the only person I know who would care/be able to empathize I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO it makes no sense but it feels so right
oh my god you wrote jlaw/kstew POST IT
THAT IS ABSOLUTELY MY STEALTH OTP
ugh and they’re both so funny and awkward but in such different ways and they both have to put up with so much media scrutiny and i just want them to find each other and sneak away from big hollywood parties together and get drunk and watch dumb movies and make each other laugh and tell stories about the idiots they have to work with (well mostly rpatz) and then probably make out a lot I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THEM
and I really wanted to say something about how I enjoyed Brave a lot, but part of me is finding it difficult to enjoy Brave as much as I could because 1) dammit, Pixar, why did it take you this long, and 2) WOW I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL WE GET TO THE POINT WHERE WE CAN HAVE A STORY ABOUT A FEMALE CHARACTER WHERE THE PLOT DOESN’T REVOLVE AROUND HER FEMALENESS! I was going to say something about how that caused me to go back through other Pixar movies in my head and think about what they would be like genderswapped— and, alright, they could argue that a female ~monster would be a tough sell, even though I wouldn’t necessarily agree, and a fem!Sully who was just as gregarious and good-natured and competent and utterly bewildered by tiny children (and a fem!Wazowski! Who was just as sarcastic and melodramatic and devoted and egotistical and weird!) would be AWESOME, and, sure, they could act like “Lightning McQueen is a dude because he’s a racecar, and racing is an industry heavily dominated by dudes,” but that would be lame, and what about the vain fast-talking Lightning McQueen who’s good and knows it but is also a girl? (Car. A girl car. TALKING ABOUT CARS IS WEIRD BECAUSE IT’S A MOVIE ABOUT CARS OKAY LET’S MOVE ON)
And, fine, The Incredibles, after a point, wouldn’t be much different, but having the super-strong woman long for the glory days while the man just wants to focus on family would be a really interesting spin on things— but what about the Toy Story where Jessie’s the hero? Or what about—
—and this was the point where I stopped thinking, tumblr, because THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS WITH RATATOUILLE.
There’s just. There’s NO REASON this couldn’t have happened, tumblr. There is NO REASON why this story (this story that I love! Ratatouille is my favorite Pixar movie, in case you didn’t know, UNPOPULAR OPINIONS WHAT WHATTTTT) about art and criticism and trust and success and self-discovery and the all-consuming, unquenchable need to create— why couldn’t it have been a story about a girl? (A girl rat, yes, true, but it would still be a step in the right direction.) YOU WOULDN’T HAVE TO CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT THE STORY, IT COULD LITERALLY BE THE EXACT SAME MOVIE BUT JUST WITH A FEMALE LEAD CHARACTER! Because sometimes women have experiences that are centered around their femaleness, but sometimes they also have experiences that are centered around their other ideas and traits and abilities, because I’m pretty sure women have those! I MEAN, SO I’VE HEARD, IDK, DON’T QUOTE ME ON THAT ONE.
I was GOING to say all that, tumblr, but I got distracted by how much girl!Remy would have changed my life.
It’s 2012. HINABN still hasn’t updated. The last of the Hanna fandom are huddled around a dying fire, flickers of faith as strong in their hearts as they were over a year ago. They know if they wait it will come. They are sure of it.
Off in the distance they hear a sound. Upon further inspection, it is a single Homestuck fan crying into the heavens. They scream Andrew Hussie’s name; they have waited two whole days and still no sign of an update can be found. That is just way too long to wait for an update.
“Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?
We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.
They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle-Earth.”—
“Looks to be a year of go and touch, leaning on my coffee like a crutch
With shards of daydreams in my hands
And the hot springs and the cold creeks, the lonely Bay and the long long weeks
Will frame my jokes and penetrate my plans”—“Highway Five” (x)
Yeah, that could be fun! I partially did it because my family vacation this year is going to be hiking and biking and outdoorsy stuff at the Grand Canyon and a couple other national parks, so my parents have been pressuring me to ~get in shape. Figure that’s a good idea, since I’d rather enjoy the trip than fall behind the entire time. And it’d be more fun to see you while I do it <3
Actor Mark Ruffalo has been placed on a terror advisory list by U.S. officials after organizing screenings for a new documentary about natural gas drilling.
The “Zodiac” actor arranged showings for “GasLand” earlier this year and voiced his concerns about the practice in relation to the national water supplies.
But his efforts to raise awareness and demand a stop to natural gas drilling reportedly attracted the attention of officials from Pennsylvania’s Office of Homeland Security - and he recently discovered it had landed him on a terror alert watchlist.
But Ruffalo is taking it all in his stride and has laughed off the idea he could be a threat to security.
He tells GQ magazine, “(It’s) pretty f**kin’ funny.” Source
Mark Ruffalo also defends trans* rights, boycotts Israel, has been on Pro-Palestine marches, donates to several charities [especially literacy programs], pro-immigration, etc.
