they’re on a coffee date
Hello, I welcome you. This is my family. I found it, all on my own. Illogical, and broken, but still fascinating. Indeed, still fascinating. P.S. I have a daily queue from 6am-6pm. He/him
“why aren’t u talking abt this one Problematic thing involving that actor/show u like??”
listen. i am tired. im putting down my pitchfork. i’ll acknowledge that thing was bad if it was but im tired of vilifying ppl for their mistakes just bc they’re famous. i want to enjoy things. i want Peace
For a long time I was second guessing everything I liked because they did this or that wrong, the actors did this, the writers did that, they left out this or ignored that… It’s just too much.
It’s just so tiring. Acknowledge where they can do better, but give yourself a break for the things you like. No one is perfect and you can like things that aren’t perfect.
Can we slap this post on the front page and leave it there forever please
This right here is why I really dislike the thing people do where they’re like “you have the privilege to not be upset about this”
no Gina I just work a bit like my phone and occasionally must recharge
I am sure there is a thing you like that sets me off immediately also
can we just both not be dicks
Have people totally forgotten about “Your Mileage May Vary”
mileage is a us-centric term, omg
okay so, I have a Story about a customer we had tonight
I am unsure what kind of eldrich being is currently unhinging his jaw to devour these burritos since he was wearing a gaiter the whole time, but i wish him well
I’m every one in this
MAN 1 (in a high pitched, whiny voice) Look what you’ve done to my peonies!
WOMAN (angrily) They’re marigolds!
MAN 2 God! I think she’s right! They are marigolds!
MAN 1 I may not know my flowers, but I know a (yells in her direction) bitch when I see one!
I looked this up because I had to know what it’s from. It’s a film called The Gay Deceivers (1969), and it’s about two straight men who, seeking to avoid the draft, claim to be gay, but then have to keep up the pretense when the army places them under surveillance.
The man in the red cardigan in the clip was played by Michael Greer, who was openly gay himself - unusual for the time. He actually worked closely with the director and rewrote much of the film’s dialogue to reduce the homophobia and make it more realistic. As a result it’s quite progressive for its time, having a gay character, played by a gay man, living in a happy same-sex relationship, which is more than a lot of media offers us today.
Plus the clip is delightful.
Why does every fantasy series gotta have a hot woman-only group like “Sisterhood Of Summer Spies” or “Ladies Of The Twilight Ball” or “Women Warriors Of The Waters” and never a himbo-only group like “Blue Rose Brotherhood” or “Manwhores Of The Realm” or “Bastard Sword Bastards”
Their NAME is the Fellowship of the Ring
