Bowser being a dad

Bowser is the best dad

bowser and mario actually settled their differences a long time ago and all the games with bowser’s kids are a game he sets up with the plumbers and the princess to keep all 7 or 8 of them active and engaged for an entire weekend because even the king of the koopas needs a hand sometimes wrangling all of them.

That’s why there’s never any blood, it’s all just playing tag and when you’re tagged you dramatically fall down.

peach spends her time “kidnapped” looking after the little ones and making sure they’re eating properly and doing a good job guarding their castles. once one is “defeated,” peach takes off to check in on the next one and bowser picks up his kid to come hang out back at the main castle and watch the rest of the adventure and eat some of the cake peach makes for the kids.

Flawless Human Beings » Gina Torres » Gina Torres Alphabet

"I was on a plane watching a documentary about Diana Vreeland, who was the editor of Vogue for years, who is incredible […] They asked her ‘How do you get to be Diana Vreeland?’ and her response was ‘Well, darling, first you have to arrange to be born in Paris!’ And that worked for her, and that’s great, but if someone were to ask me, I’d say: First, you’d have to arrange to be born in the Bronx, to two brilliant, fantastic, Cuban immigrants who taught me grace under fire…sometimes quite literally, ‘cause it was the Bronx…who taught me that work was a blessing and not a chore, who taught me that you determine your self worth and that you tell people who you are…they don’t get to tell you." - Gina Torres

“Lilo and Stitch” 2002

Deleted Scene

Lilo plays a trick on the tourists.

IF YOU LIVED HERE YOU’D UNDERSTAND

I desperately need to understand

WHY

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY

Was this scene cut from the movie??!!

Fucking christ, do you know what this would have done? What this would have meant to SO MANY people??  The truth of this is devastating. And to think it almost found it’s way into a DISNEY film??

The inclusion of this scene alone would have made it the greatest animated feature the company ever produced. Easily. And if you think that’s hyperbolic clearly you don’t understand.

No, really, if anyone knows why this was cut PLEASE let me know. 

oh man WHY WOULD they cut this, this is so great, holy MOLY

It was clearly something the crew was very reluctant to get rid of if it made it all the way to rough-clean (and in a few scenes clean!), fully inbetweened animation. That is like, thousands and thousands of dollars and weeks (months?!) of labour. Maybe a reluctant producer decided they would alienate their white middle-class American audiences by making them feel “too guilty” and pressed them to drop it? It’s unfortunate, it’s one of the most honest accounts of racism in a Disney movie (which is why it’s believable that someone got uncomfortable and made a case to get it chopped)

Designing entertainment by committee for maximum marketability is probably the most heartbreaking process in Hollywood.

I’ve been seeing this around my dash and think it deserves some more recognition!

This shit is hilarious, too.

NO WAIT SHIT

I GET IT NOW

I GET WHY SHE WAS PHOTOGRAPHING TOURISTS AS A HOBBY

SHE WAS BEING FUCKING SATIRICAL AND OBJECTIFYING

IT’S NOT BECAUSE SHE’S A DUMB KID WITH A WEIRD HOBBY IT’S BECAUSE THEY DO THAT TO HER AND HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY LIKE SHE’S SOME KIND OF FUCKING THEME PARK CHARACTER AND SHE WANTS THEM TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS

HOLY FUCKING DICKS DISNEY WHY WOULD YOU CUT THIS

This scene would have made it so much better.

I’m falling in love all over again

in stories featuring aliens, they’re always like “on my planet this never happens!” or “in my culture, this differs from your human culture.” and that’s neat and all because i like worldbuilding and all that jazz but wouldn’t it be fun if they just. couldn’t do that?

i want a story where humans encounter an alien who frustrates them because they don’t know enough to tell them anything concrete

like humans will ask “tell us about politics in your planet!” and the alien’s all “uh… hold on it’s been a while since i took gov. um….”

"what sorts of plants grow on your planet?"

"i dunno i grew up in the suburbs. they’re like… purple? idk what you want me to say"

"tell us about the culture on your planet!"

"do you have any idea how many fucking countries are back home, i don’t even know where to begin"

"your planet is obviously much more scientifically and technologically advanced than ours. is it possible for you to enlighten us on certain matters concerning space travel, or would that be a form of interference you must avoid?"

"naw it’s cool, it’s just that, um, i’m a philosophy major"

okay so I keep seeing people claiming that Cersei’s jealousy of Brienne is OOC and I am just baffled to be honest. 

Cersei is so jealous of Brienne. There is not a fibre of Cersei’s being that is not jealous of Brienne. 

and that has nothing to do with Jaime. 

Jealousy is absolutely present in that scene, but it’s all at the beginning: “You’re Lord Selwyn Tarth’s daughter, that makes you a lady whether you want to be or not” absolutely reeks of Tywin. These are the same words that Cersei herself has heard her whole life. These are the words that little six year old Cersei is told when Tywin catches her swapping clothes with Jaime so she can learn swordfighting. 

Yet here’s this enormous ridiculous woman who has everything Cersei wants: freedom, physical power, a life without fear of being played as a pawn when she knows she’s more than that. 

And we all know Cersei, Cersei hates being the less-powerful party, and for all that she could have Brienne carted off to the dungeons if she wanted, the fact that Brienne has so much that Cersei wants is infuriating for her. She needs to find a weakness, and she does; the way Brienne smiles when she talks about Jaime is textbook schoolgirl crush and suddenly Cersei has the upper hand. 

Now she has something Brienne wants, and she’s going to play that to her advantage. In making jibes about Brienne’s history and directly challenging her love for Jaime, Cersei is proving both to herself and to Brienne that she is superior. 

Brienne might be a warrior but Cersei is a lioness. Cersei is a Queen. Cersei has Jaime’s heart.

This scene was not about a “love triangle”. 

This scene was about a power-play.

Watch: NPH and Jason Segel reprise “The Confrontation" from ‘Les Mis’ on ‘Inside the Actor’s Studio’

This one is arguably better than the original from Megan Mullally’s talk show years ago.

six fanfictions i am currently craving: 

  • the steve rogers and bucky barnes are really mad about these newfangled bananas show, starring steve rogers and bucky barnes, who are really mad about these newfangled bananas
  • this same fic, five more times

True story: I am known at work as “the girl who knows a lot of stuff about fruit”, partly* because of this very fact!  I WOULD READ THIS STORY REALLY DAMN HARD, IS WHAT I AM SAYING.

* The only other fruit fact I have shared is the fact that pineapple contains a shitton of bromelain, which breaks down proteins (it’s mostly used as a meat tenderizer), which just goes to say that WHEN YOU EAT PINEAPPLE, IT EATS YOU BACK.  These are my only two fruit facts!  …but I guess when you share those two facts with a high level of enthusiasm, you become known as “the girl who knows a lot of stuff about fruit”.

"Your kindness is sincerely appreciated but advice is not being accepted at this time," is my new favorite phrase.

Friends, feel free to use this on me. I give advice way too liberally

You might not always use it, but, always take advice. Getting an outside view is refreshing and helps put things in perspective.

Your kindness is sincerely appreciated.

But.

Advice is not being accepted at this time.
