DO YOU GUYS WANT SOME SHIRBERT
Quando Bacurau começa, a primeira impressão que você tem é de que será um filme futurista. Impossível não olhar para a visão da terra e o céu estrelado sem lembrar daqueles textos no início de Guerra nas Estrelas. E talvez ainda tenha ficado com essa impressão até pouco depois de ver uma nave espacial aparecendo do nada. Mas toda aquela construção que talvez soe sem sentido para quem vai ver o filme de primeira é apenas uma maneira de mostrar que Bacurau é, realmente, um lugarzinho escondido no meio do mundo.
Vilarejo anexo ao município de Serra Verde, Bacurau é como qualquer nordestino que mora no interior descreveria sua cidade: um ovo. Tão pequena, que todos os moradores cabem em um grupo de WhatsApp. A primeira parte do filme não apenas apresenta a problemática, mas também nos apresenta as pessoas que fazem parte desse lugar: gente honesta, organizada, que respeita funções e especialidades de cada pessoa que faz parte dali e que tem sua dinâmica extremamente prejudicada por Tony Júnior, prefeito que os vê sob a ótica estereotipada de caipira burro e acha que entregando cestas básicas com produtos vencidos e (literalmente) um caminhão de lixo cheio de livros velhos é suficiente para garantir ali votos para a reeleição.
Acontece que as pessoas de Bacurau não são idiotas. E ele, decidido a garantir sua reeleição a todo custo, busca resolver o problema da forma mais sanguinária, cruel e desumana possível. Partimos então para a segunda parte do filme onde, sentindo o que está por vir, o vilarejo se emparelha com seu grande anti-herói, o Lunga (claramente um cangaceiro moderno), para garantir sua sobrevivência.
Embora não tenha uma única mensagem específica, Bacurau faz um trabalho incrível ao encapsular em suas 2 horas e 12 minutos várias situações problemáticas de nosso país, ao mesmo tempo que oferece, ao final, um fio de esperança. Um dos momentos mais emblemáticos do filme, e que acabou se tornando um favorito, é quando o casal de brasileiros do Rio de Janeiro tenta se descrever como “diferentes” para os estrangeiros do recinto, apenas por serem advindos de um lugar fruto de “colônias alemãs” ou sei lá. Aí, eles quebram a cara.
Dentre tantas coisas (e não vou me estender aqui para não entregar muito pra quem vai assistir pela primeira vez), acredito que esse filme mostra a força que a união de um povo mediante a suposta imposição de um representante egocêntrico que não se importa em NADA com outra pessoa além dele mesmo é o suficiente para mudar as coisas – algo importante para garantir nossa sobrevivência neste jogo de interesses. Tudo isso com muito sangue e referências à figuras emblemáticas da história do Nordeste.
E já que estamos no tumblr, vamos falar do fato de que Lunga é um ícone bissexual
We need to have a nomination for “Stupidest thing Tumblr.com has ever believed” and just move into an official Top 10 List.
For my nominations, I’m putting up:
- If you eat a chocolate bar a very specific way, you will break physics and get infinite chocolate.
- It is impossible that you spelled “Berenstain Bears” wrong and is, instead, more likely that the universe fractured into separate, overlapping realities in the last 20 years.
I can’t decide which is more beautiful. It’s why we need a vote.
this is a picture of the human brain at the moment of death. tragic and beautiful
Fuck. That is a damn good nomination.
if you close your eyes when the train hits your brain will assume you are dead. Some find this comforting.
We’re getting into the good ones now. This is some classic Tumblr.
Two old favourites:
“Bitch, That’s the Tubby Custard Machine” (https://imgur.com/gallery/IObQF)
and the horse dildo that was passed off as someone’s arm. (https://abakkus.tumblr.com/post/48958415162)
This is rapidly becoming a master post of ignorances and I could not possibly be happier.
Rare blue watermelon
That disease where you get purple eyes, no period, and no body hair
How have we gone this far without anyone mentioning the bird in the chocolate fountain
soap makes water molecules smaller
I nominate the “we are killing the earth” picture of the earth in comparison from 1978 to 2012
the dog with the slice of ham on its face that everyone thought was a gigantic burn scar
“Tequila is the only alcohol thats not a depressant so you can drink as much of it as you like”
that post with the picture of the joker without makeup and people thinking it was a real person and defending him
that photo of voldemort being passed off as an aborted fetus
The two way mirror
“listen here, cumslut.”
I can’t believe you guys forgot someone trying to pass off a picture of the inside of a fig as a microscopic view of the inside of a vagina.
this is like staring directly into the sun during an eclipse

WORKING CLASS SOLIDARITY
My dad told me recently that the most important public health workers are garbage collectors and janitors. So much of our health relies on a clean environment. These people do some of the most important work in society. If we learned in dirty public environments full of garbage, we’d all be sick. I cannot thank these people enough for the valuable work that they do.
Shout out to all garbage collectors, janitors and housekeepers!
The tags below tell a story
Solidarity to all workers of the world! They are the ones who truly keep the world running!
Don’t forget, all labour is important, even those you declare worthless.
It makes me so happy whenever I see this post.
To all the forgotten and devalued laborers that we depend on: thank you for your service
John Mulaney, a man who is iconically known for loving his wife, after being told by Jerry Seinfeld that his wife only thinks shes good at something
Well done OP, you’ve managed to capture the moment John’s spirit left his body
Jerry’s lucky that John is too polite to throw hands
Okay but I just went and watched this for myself and it’s WORSE
He’s. So uncomfortable. It’s obvious. I cut out the part where John kind of muttered, “That is true, isn’t it” about how all men think they’re funny, but his face is just screwed up in this ‘oh god what have i done what have i signed up for this is not good and this will probably go into my next comedy special of awkwardness’
Just watched this omg bless john bc jerry just keeps trying to do some “take my wife” bullshit and john very politely goes no, no.
proud of John for restraining himself from murdering a man on camera
What’s so horrifying about this to me is that this is literally Jerry Seinfeld trying to teach John Mulaney how to gaslight his wife.
Look at that dialogue. “She thinks she knows.” He’s trying to get Mulaney to see his wife’s expertise as instead a weird misperception. He’s coaching him to undercut his wife’s confidence in the truth and her own abilities.
And Mulaney replies exactly the right way: “She does know.” He asserts not only that she’s perceiving the world accurately, but that she is an expert at something he’s not good at.
Dudes, don’t take this shit from other dudes. Mulaney isn’t by any means perfect but he aced this. Stand for the truth. Defend women’s objectivity. Promote women’s expertise.
Doesnt his wife also work with antiques too?like. Isnt that part of her actual job?
I reblog this every time because I don’t think people understand that Anna is literally an interior designer. She makes absolutely stunning Victorian Lampshades. Which she designs.. for the interior of a home… she’s literally an interior designer. She doesn’t think she’s good at it, she knows she’s good at it because it’s her fucking job
Oh, thank god, it wasn’t just me. When I saw this I was furious, and it’s worse because John absolutely worships Jerry and you could see him go into an almost paralysis at the complete cognitive dissonance. I’ve never liked Seinfeld and this just cemented my impression of what a casually misogynistic dickbag he is.
My dood loves this show for some reason so I’ve seen a lot of it and honestly Jerry is SO insecure.
If you watch the Tracy Morgan episode, which takes place after the John Mulaney episode, you can see that he knows Tracy is funnier than him and he’s super bitter about it, his jokes don’t land because he’s too angry, too serious, and then he SPECIFICALLY calls out John Mulaney. “The kids these days, they think comedy is describing going to the doctor. No! Make something up!”
It’s like, not only does he have to endureTracy Morgan being funnier than him, he’s realizing this “kid” John Mulaney is funnier than him and is younger than him, the king of comedy for millennials, who we all know are the boomers’ favorite scapegoat for the very fact that time means their grip on the world is slipping. Jerry is so mad that people think he’s a has-been and Mulaney’s leading a new generation of comedy, so he takes this moment with Tracy to rip on “younger comedians.”
Meanwhile Tracy has no interest in tearing down another comedian and keeps trying to change the subject. The episode is wild, guys. Fucking wild.
It’s double funny
actually so stupid to em that he’s saying all women think they know interior design and all men think they are funny, to a guy who’s actually funny and is married to a interior designer
justice for mod silver
what the hell is this?!!
This is a moment in history
WHERES THE FULL LENGTH FILM
Honestly throw back to this
This was the peak of tumblr
Is this real
Can I get a tumblr history lesson
Tumblr history lesson coming up
alright so its May 30th 2015, and this blog appears out of the blue. It’s a self-proclaimed REAL SJW blog, only they made a point of hating ‘special snowflakes’ aka any gender or sexuality that were not one of the well-known ones.
They all take the persona of a Sonic character, and at the time of the blog’s creation there were 6: Mods Sonic, Shadow, Amy, Tikal, Tails….and Silver. The blog hadn’t been active for 24 hours before Mod Silver allegedly closed the ask box. As you can see from the rules page at the time, this was a clear violation of the rules:
The other mods were displeased, in particular Mod Amy who ignored his stated reasons for doing so and furiously demanded that he contact her on skype.
Mod Silver was promptly removed from the blog for his first offence, however not before the blog’s followers took note of another rule on the list: Be kind to Mod Silver.
The tumblr masses became angry at Mod Amy’s hypocrisy and called for her to be removed from the blog, starting the trends #IStandWithModSilver and #DownWithModAmy. She responded by saying she had done nothing wrong by disobeying the Mod Silver rule as the rules had been updated after his removal:
This only made Mod Silver sympathizers angrier, increasing the pressure on Mod Amy. The whole thing upset Mods Tails and Tikal greatly, with Mod Tails trying to stand up for Mod Silver and Mod Tikal refusing to pick a side.
At the end of the day, the blog had 10,000 followers, and both Mod Amy and Mod Sonic confirmed that Mod Silver was gone for good.
BUT WE AREN’T DONE.
The very next day, Mod Tails resigned after alleged harassment by Mod Amy. Mod Sonic then revealed that he and Mod Amy had been dating in secret. Mod Knuckles was recruited, hoping to be a peacemaker of sorts, and became the only Mod with the authority to change the rules. Later the same day, Mod Tikal was banned from the blog after labeling herself a demigirl, which violated the ‘special snowflake’ rule:
On June 1st, Mod Sally joined the blog, but it simply made things worse as Mod Amy immediately suspected that Mod Sonic might have feelings for them. This caused an argument between the three, with Mod Shadow helping to stir up dust by making posts about Mod Sonic’s supposed crush. Knowing he was likely going to be banned, Mod Shadow then made his final post:
Mod Sonic replied the next day confirming Mod Shadow’s removal. He then changed his name to Mod Super Sonic, and removed Mod Knuckles from the Mod List without warning for a violation of the rules (debated below):
After which Mod Sally resigned, unwilling to put up with all the drama. Mod Amy was then unexpectedly banned by Mod Sonic, who had once again changed his name:
Mod Sonic was now the only Mod left, and nobody knew what he would do next. The answer turned out to be… nothing, as 6 days of inactivity was a violation of the rules, and he left the blog. The story get less interesting from here.
Mods Silver and Shadow returned to the blog alongside new Mods Blaze, Classic Sonic, and Classic Amy (both of which claimed not to be the originals). After a kerfuffle involving Mod Shadow claiming that Mod Silver encouraged hate of Mod Amy (which he then took back), Mods Classic Sonic and Classic Amy were removed for inactivity.
FAST FORWARD TO AUGUST 2016, Mod Shadow became angry when a new Mod refused to pick a Sonic character for the blog, instead choosing Nagito Komaeda from Dangan Ronpa 2. They began arguing immediately:
Since then, the blog has changed its theme to include Dangan Ronpa characters rather than Sonic ones, thought their URL remains the same. PLEASE look up screenshots, there are way more than the ones I included, but this post is long enough already. So ends the tale of Sonic For Real Justice, as I remember it
I’VE BEEN WONDERING FOR SO LONG
they’re a fun gay yugioh blog now
Hey! I feel like my dash is kind of dead, so reblog this post if you mainly post any of these and i’ll check out your blog:
- Avatar (atla/lok)
- She Ra
- The dragon prince
- Steven Universe
- Animation (cartoons/anime/disney) in general
- positive posts
- +bonus if you create your own original content (edits, art, etc.,)
Mutuals, pls signal boost, i’ll love you forever <33
Me, a reasonable human being:
Romance was always ATLA’s weakest point. The true strength of the series was in its worldbuilding, its characters, and its handling of extremely mature subjects in a format accessible to children but still engaging enough for adults. It was rich and imaginitive and entirely different from any other show to come before or since. It didn’t need romance. In an ideal world, the show would have ended with a group hug with the entire Gaang and no canon romance
with the possible exception of Sukka.
Also me, sobbing uncontrollably:
💞 😭 Zuko and Katara were in love!
You should watch Carmen Sandiego
Ok, it was 1am and I’ve been a little bored show-related lately, so I thought I would check out the new-ish cartoon Netflix made, Carmen Sandiego, about super thieves
Boy, I was not prepared for how much I liked it
First, it super cute. I’m super into their animations style
Second, many episodes are actually quite informative. For instance, if Carmen is going to Indonesia, they use information about that place in the plot and give it to the audience, like how about rice is one of the most important things in their economy. Not only is very interesting, but also gives me warm feels about how kids will learn some stuff while watching this.
The lead character is a Latina woman, there’re quite a few POC characters (not just one to check a box), several strong and powerful women, and all the characters have (in my opinion) amazing and very fun designs.
Also, although there’re no romantic plots so far, there was what I suspect might be a very cute lesbian couple on screen for a moment in one of the episodes (only this one that I spotted, but who knows? Could be more? Personally, I have a gay ship already, but I’ll ship almost anything so I’m really no reference here)
Sorry for the low quality of the image, but look at them all cute holding hands
Back to the point: Carmen is absolutely fabulous. I’m completely in love with her style and premise. There’s background story going on, people whom she has affinities and rivalries with. There’s context enough that you understand the characters, but still some mystery to unveil about her past, and even what you could call a plot twist at the end.
The antagonists are interesting and strong, hard to take down. There were moments when I was at the edge of my seat, worried if Carmen was going to make it.
And, on top of that, there’s the law side in all this mess: an inspector going after Carmen, but, of course, never getting to her and going crazy about it - not to mention his very smart and perceptive partner, who is such a cutie but also kind of shy.
The characters are fun! Carmen is good - like, she is really good at what she does -, so it’s fun to watch her. It’s light hearted, smart, and makes me feel happy. It’s a kids show, in which “good” might even struggle from time to time, but prevails.
Now it’s 7am where I live, I was up all night watching, and did not expect this, but I’m honestly dying for the second season to come.
Ok, with the release of the season 2 trailer, I feel like it’s time to bring this post back because this show does not have the hype it deserves
today my students compared the fact that people in ancient rome would sometimes buy gladiator sweat to gamer girl bathwater, and teaching middle school has been worth it entirely just for that
they’re right and they should say it
“Gladiator sweat and fats of the animals fighting in the arena were sold in souvenir pots outside of the games to improve complexion”
Broke: Gamer girl bathwater
WOKE: Gladiator sweat facial scrub
I wanna talk about ‘reset’ Garnet for a second.
She started with Sapphire saving Ruby. Which was a flip of the original story.
There may have been some fear or confusionwith her fusion but she was just so happy when she fused. And she was safe with people who loved and wouldnt judge her.
More so they were actually happy to see her.
And then she saw them fuse during ‘independant together’ Steg and Opal. And learned that she wasnt different or strange. She was loved. And she is love.
Its the fusion experience Ruby, Sapphire and Garnet all deserved and it made me very VERY happy.
I came out here to celebrate a teen heart-throb icon, and have left with knowledge about Quentin McCartino I never could have anticipated. I am Pandora, and typing the first Dickard Grayson post was opening the shoe box
He signed up to play Roxas cuz he loved the big feet characters of Kingdom Hearts
I hate that you made me Google this Isghdhdhsjsjsjk??!?!!!!
Was anyone going to tell me that Jesse McCartney who voices Dick Grayson in Young Justice is the same fuckign Jesse McCartney whose song Beautiful Soul was the slow dance song in literally every single rom com circa early 2000s, or was I just supposed to connect the dots myself
i say we start a meme where we take jokes that don’t work in other languages and translate them without explanation maybe only tagging with the original language and confuse the heck out of everyone on tumblr who’s not in on the meme like
in italian we say “prince light blue” (prince azzurro) instead of “prince charming” and i just saw a joke that in english would be “if you can’t find your prince charming, the solution is to take a random dude from the street and paint him”

i love that photoset of elsa and her mom because it clearly shows how the mom is literally just an elsa recolor
God forbid kids and their parents look alike, as if genetics were involved or something, ha
Disney straight up copy past Elsa and her Mom face it just the same face. is not genetic is poor and bad character design
Royal families tend to have smaller gene pools, so there’s a lot less variety
There is a big difference in look alike because they are blood related and just straight up copy the same face and do different colors for the hair
Again. Is poor character design
“it’s not bad character design it’s inbreeding”
Imagine thinking animated characters have genes
carmen sandiego fans get HYPE this trailer gives us SO MUCH and season 2 is gonna be absolutely amazing

I tried explaining it here:
Question. How the fuck does that work?
My favourite math fact is that 0.9999999.. is equal to 1. Exactly. Not approximately. Not as a rounded number. 0.9999 (recurring) is exactly 1.
We’re doing Postmodernism is Sociology, and the teacher was talking about ‘language games'— language that is so specialised that unless you’re part of a specific group it’s totally incomprehensible.
And, as an example, he gave us this monstrosity:
And, what’s even worse— I fucking UNDERSTOOD IT. I had to EXPLAIN this to my fucking sociology class.
This is why we should never have let the millenials become teachers.
God I wish that were me

I like to imagine that those gay bitches back in the 1600s read the line “how sweet and lovely doth thou make the shame” from shakespeare’s sonnet 95 and felt the same way us gay bitches felt hearing hozier sing “there is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin” in 2014
