Alan Rickman reads Shakespeare’s Sonnet 130
My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.
You know, Peeta’s unconventional masculinity is as relevant for traditional gender subversion in The Hunger Games as Katniss’s unconventional femininity.
It’s a bit annoying to see everyone and their mother praising Katniss for being such a unique action female hero, and…
Ok Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, (yes groan, but listen up) has this new app out (iPhone and Android) that’s for people in abusive relationships. It’s called Aspire News and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the “Help” section of the app, it leads you to…
These are finally done, after a four-month delay where they sat on my desk, and I ignored them. However, I am actually back in nerdgerhl's apartment for a visit, and was therefore compelled to finish them and give her a very late birthday present. I supremely enjoyed turning her into a dwarf, her favorite Tolkien/D&D race, and am sorely tempted to offer this service to others. Beards! Elaborate beards for all! (It is Movember.)
Pencil, and watching The Hobbit DVD extras a whole lot.
BEST belated birthday present.
one of your heroes, Han Solo, realized he was going to be friendzoned by the girl he likes and ACCEPTED it and chose not to call her a bitch, even promising to not get in their way as a couple.
Sincerely, Be Like HanHan
I think it’s the first time I see gifsets of this scene with comments that focus on how Han Solo respects Leia’s feelings instead of incest jokes. Kudos to you, tumblr user jamesfactscalvin :)
this isn’t even a campaign. this is some 17 year old teenager sitting at his computer while eating spicy doritos with a call of duty headset on
Joss Whedon is currently being hailed as a great feminist theorist,* because he said that “feminist” implies that equality is not our natural state, and we should instead simply call not-equal things “genderist.” This is somehow an improvement upon “sexist”, “anti-feminist”, and “misogynistic”, because, well, he said so. But Joss Whedon is actually totally full of crap.
In other news, water is wet.
I honestly love Whedon’s shows but no, dude, you are a cis het white man and you do not get to define feminism. At all. EVER. Genderist? Because ‘equalist’ wasn’t fucking annoying enough yet I guess?
BAD Joss Whedon. NO.
