"I remember my son once asked me, “Did you ever, like, kiss in high school?” And I told him this long drawn-out story of how shy I was, how I finally got a girlfriend but she broke up with me because I was too shy to try to kiss her, and then I had another girlfriend but still couldn’t figure out kissing. The technique was always a big obstacle in my head, like, How do you kiss? Where does your chin go? Forget about anything beyond kissing-first base was a total mystery to me. So I’m telling my son this long story, and he listens patiently until he finally realizes where I’m going with it, and he says, “Dad, no-did you like Kiss in high school? Kiss, the band!” And I was, “Oh yeah, Kiss…they were good.”"-Steve Buscemi (via admiralbonetopick)
"When minor characters who are also ethnic minorities start talking among themselves in their native tongues, they sometimes take advantage of their invisibility to say things. Sometimes they break the Fourth Wall and start ranting about the movie director. Sometimes, they spout random obscenities or natter about their lousy lunch. It’s all in not-English, so whatever they say doesn’t matter! And the actual translations of their lines can be a secret source of hilarity in films where actors are instructed to use a Gratuitous Foreign Language (GFL) in order to make a scene sound more authentic. When some Native Americans cast in Westerns were told to speak their own language to add some authenticity, these actors took the opportunity to crudely editorialize about their director, which allegedly resulted in Native American audiences (in)explicably cracking up laughing during scenes that were meant to be dramatic."-Minorities can be marginalized in film, but not silenced.

OK BUT CAN WE GET SOME CLOSURE W/ THE WHOLE ISAAC IN FRANCE THING I FEEL LIKE CHRIS JUST LEFT HIM IN A CAFE IN PARIS WITH A BAGUETTE IN HIS HAND
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.
a story about a clan of werewolves where only the women turn into werewolves due to an ancient curse
and a trans girl sobbing with relief and happiness the first full moon of her thirteenth birthday, when she finally transforms
film about a group of men getting into shenanigans= “comedy”
film about a group of women getting into shenanigans= “chick flick”
film about a friendship between two men= “buddy flick”
film about a friendship between two women= “chick flick”

God I bet..
I bet Sam fucking LOVES having guests. So he actually made a fucking massive breakfast for them, and he doesn’t know what these guys eat - Natasha’s tiny, so Sam makes a fruit salad, but then, maybe Steve (who’s huge) likes fruit salad too, so he ends up with a punchbowl full of fruit. But then also waffles and pancakes, and eggs… though who knows how these people eat their eggs? Sam likes scrambled, but he boils some just in case, and sets up a frying pan in case either of them wants fried. Better put some water on to boil in case someone wants poached…. While he has the eggs out, might as well make french toast. But then actually, Natasha’s european, right? They like that weird-ass continental breakfast shit, so he rolls up some little bits of ham and cheese, which looks weird without croissants and muffins and whatnot so he nips out to get some. And some juice. And some tea. And some hair straighteners.
And so Natasha eats a few bits of everything, but Steve… well Steve grew up during a time where you did not waste food - clearing your plate is ingrained in him, so. Yeah, he did have a big breakfast. He had all the breakfast.
And some hair straighteners.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”" -

YES THIS A THOUSAND TIMES THIS.
Anonymous said: As much as The Rock does talk about racism and his experiences with it, I'm still so disenchanted knowing he's a Republican. I guess at the end of the day, saving money when your making millions is what matters most.
I’d still go see the Hercules movie, but yes you’re right, he’s a Republican so I really can’t cheer The Rock on. Of course Robert Downey Jr. is a Republican too, and that doesn’t seem to stop Tumblr from… well, anything.
It’s cute to me that people will write off an indigenous man kicking ass in the white man’s world because of his “supposed” political affiliations. Granted, Republicans by and large are not people I am a huge fan of - but there are most definitely reasons for why people register Republican. It’s just a name, I myself was a registered Republican for several years despite that I didn’t agree with several (ALL) of their politics - for reasons that are incredibly personal and frankly unpleasant.
He spoke at the Republican National Convention that’s right, he also spoke at the DEMOCRATIC National Convention because it was a campaign to encourage kids to vote.
When the day comes that The Rock actually goes out and says women aren’t allowed autonomy, racism is great, and homosexuality is a sin - then you can throw him under the bus. He’s never done anything like that, aside from having a lame little political label under his name. The same by the way, applies to Prince Quentin Kawananakoa who is also a Republican and is one of the heirs to the Hawaiian throne. We are a Democratic state, and his siblings are certainly Democrats, but we honor and support him regardless.
Dwayne Johnson is a proud wonderful Samoan man, a damn Seiuli (chief, yeah he’s literally a Samoan chieftan), and a great role-model. So if you can’t cheer him on because he might “potentially” be on the “other side” then I guess support of indigenous people is conditional to a lousy form filled out when you turn 18.
