I don’t wanna sound like an old hipster but I miss when memes were only an internet inside thing and not known to prominent media outlets cause if I see one more news article using the word Karen one more time—
Like this glorious jerk got arrested so many times that was literally ALL THEY HAD TO WRITE IN THE PAPER
He was a vagrant street kid and Seattle girls were all over this guy, to the point where it caused a moral panic. There’s a famous anecdote about a women proclaiming her love in Denny Park and then trying to shoot herself, but most of these reports were falsely worded in a way that suggest his female admirers were “upset about being deceived” when really they were upset that he was wooing other women, or trying to get his attention by being as extra as possible.
What you also should know is that back in the day “seduction” was a literal crime that could put you in prison (unless you married the woman you seduced) but since he wasn’t cis they couldn’t really CHARGE HIM with anything. Legend.
I especially like “Seattle Woman Appears in Men’s Clothes Because She Says Her Features Make it Possible.” I can’t imagine anything but someone going “Hey! You can’t dress like that!” and him responding “Oh yes I can. You see, I look very good.”
I want a TV show about him
occupations held by Harry Allen include: ranch hand, bronco buster, longshoreman, boxing second, and hotel clerk
Man, how soon we forget. History is being unwritten before my eyes.
Night Vale had to pull out of Dashcon, yes, because Dashcon refused to pay them. Likewise, Noelle Stevenson was there, & had to pull out part of the way through the con when she found out that she would have to pay for her hotel room. The Night Vale group let Noelle Stevenson stay with them in their room. (She has since designed merch for them + been invited backstage to their live shows.)
This post is not just random internet celebrities posting old memes. This is also a toast to the beginning of their friendship.
I hate how when someone starts their period for the first time adults are always like “You’re all grown up now!!!!! You’re a real woman now!!!!!!!!” Like hi bitch that is an 11 year old child. Their bedtime is 9pm and their favorite tv show is spongebob
Do you ever lie awake wondering how the heck Gimli knows what a nervous system is
Clearly dwarves have medical knowledge far more advanced than that of the other races.
His Majesty Dr. Gimli, son of Gloin, Neurosurgeon, M.D.
gimli trying to explain his studies to legolas, a flat-earther
#*scroll down* #*remember that middle earth is canonically flat for elves and round for everyone else* #*scroll back up & smash that reblog button"
tired: legolas took gimli to valinor with him because they were bffs/in love/etc.
wired: legolas took gimli to valinor to prove the world was flat after arguing with him about it for decades
Sorry it’s what to elves
So, in Tolkein lore, the world was originally flat, with most of the land in the middle (hence Middle Earth). But the Numenorians (men who were rewarded with their own Atlantis-equivalent island for service in the first big war against Melkor, but eventually Power Corrupts etc) tried to invade the uttermost west which was basically Elf Heaven. To put an end to that sort of thing, the creator of the world Bent The World and made it a sphere…but left elves able to treat it like a flat disk. So elves can sail west and reach Elf Heaven, but a man or dwarf or hobbit who sails west will eventually wrap around to the east coast of Middle Earth.
This is why Legolas can see for such great, almost impossible distances. The Earth does not curve for him.
What with the Mercutio/Romeo kiss from the other day I feel like I should have a tag specifically for “men kissing in Shakespeare plays even though it’s not in the text, but after 400 years of unresolved sexual tension it’s time.”
Whaaat this is the most over the top dip-and-kiss I’ve ever seen and I love it
