back in September I kept getting calls from people wanting me to make the monarch butterfly migration happen for their weekend picnics
sir I do not have the powers you expect from me
Some guy called the park today and asked if we have any outdoor snow activities coming up.
“We should soon,” I said, “Weather permitting.”
“‘Weather permitting’?” he asked. “Can you clarify what you mean by that?”
“I mean… provided it gets cold enough,” I said.
“And why is that necessary?”
“Because… snow… melts?”
Y’all know when Mulan is sitting in the rain and watches her parents silhouette disappear as the candle is blown out and then her eyes squint in determination and the music that starts to play and you see her go into the family temple and light a match and bow in respect and then sneak into her parents room and switch the scroll for her hair brooch and then the way her reflection is shown as she pulls the sword and cuts her hair?? It’s literally more iconic than any marvel movie
Y’all know that there is heavy symbolism in that scene to show that Mulan is the spirit of the Great Stone Dragon and that’s why Mushu wasn’t able to awaken it?
im sorry What!! i never knew this! my life feels fuller!!! ahhhh
Mulan sits in the rain underneath the statue of the Great Stone Dragon (who is looking down on her), and suddenly decides on a course of action. She looks up, resolved to go to war in place of her father and runs into the temple where she lights the match and beseeches protection for her family. The stone she bows to and that we see lit up by lightening strike is that of the dragon, whose eyes are looking out after her, lit from underneath by the candles. The scene transitions to the divider in the house that also has an icon of the dragon. where she replaces her hair comb with the summons. Then we see the sword hilt, also the dragon, and as she draws the blade we see her face replace it. She ties up her hair, then as she opens the wardrobe, the handles are also the dragon. After donning the armor, the view shows her facing us, with the hilt of the sword (the face of the dragon) in front of her face, where she then turns the sword to reveal her face, and sheaths it. As she leaves, we flash back to the temple, and the eyes of the dragon flash as her grandmother wakes up.
The Great Stone Dragon resides within her. She is the protector of the family.
After this explanation, the scene where Mushu cannot wake up the stone dragon makes so much more sense. I appreciate the symbolism so much more. I noticed the dragon but didn’t notice she was constantly juxtaposed with the dragon!
Important: one of them has snuck in a wildly improbable amount of weapons or is distressingly skilled with creating improvised weapons.
Every good series deserves to have an episode with the “we all have to dress up formal to go to (and/or infiltrate) a fancy event or party, but shit hits the fan and oh no, we have to fight monsters/aliens/the undead/assassins/etc., while dressed in black tie and with only whatever weapons we could manage to sneak in on our persons, also look extremely hot while doing it” trope
I’ve made a lot of bad meme posts in my time, but I’ll never sink so low as to make one of those damn zodiac signs posts, even if I am a Gemini.

one time when i was a teenager an adult said to me “you know, we do talk about you when you’re not there” and i never recovered
remember when jared leto absolutely terrorized his suicide squad castmates and turned himself into a laughing stock bc he misinterpreted what method acting is, only to have 7 minutes of screen time and be cut from most of the film’s promotional material? i know it was a while ago now but i dnt think anything more satisfying will happen in our lifetime
ok but the full extent of margot robbie’s vindication is frankly legendary. she wanted a better chance to relish her role as Harley so, like an absolute icon, she went to warner brothers and pitched a movie to then. now we’re getting an r rated girl gang movie about harley getting out of her shitty relationship w/ joker and going on a chaotic ass roadtrip with a bunch of other female heroes. it’s going to be the first superhero movie directed by a woman of color and there are multiple major characters of color, including a Latina lesbian. can you believe margot robbie obliterated jared leto’s tired ass joker with one fell swoop?
and two really important updates:
1. all planned future appearances of Jared Leto as the joker (Joker solo movie, Joker/Harley movie, etc) have been indefinitely tabled, including his planned appearances in the Suicide Squad sequel, where he’s pretty much the only cast member of the first movie not returning
2. The Joker is confirmed to have a cameo in Margot’s Birds of Prey movie (likely for the scene where she leaves him). They’ve opted to use a body double for the part rather than inviting Leto to reprise his role
rest in shit leto lol
Costars message today asked me ifI had a “fetish for love” and its like okay I yearn and yes I want to be in love with someone but thats what most humans do its just called wanting love?? Dont make it sound like im a freak
hey everyone, op of the mini chess set post, theory/ov/everything (dashes instead of slashes), is high high key antisemetic and a neo nazi
the video starts out like this, if you’re unsure if you’ve seen it or not
if you go looking on their blog for receipts please do so with caution, the things they have on there are seriously disturbing and could really mess with some people
i feel like it should be further clarified what they have on their blog for safety reasons. from just a few minutes of scrolling, i’ve found posts justifying jewish caricatures, saying that all billionaires are jewish (i don’t feel i have to explain this one further), and associating jewish people with satanic rituals and pedophilia rings. it’s all majorly disturbing and triggering, and i urge you not to look through the blog if any of this may hurt you.
Instead of using the phrase “it’s five o clock somewhere” as an excuse to start drinking, I propose we use the phrase “it’s bedtime somewhere” as an excuse to start sleeping.
Why not both?
Because I don’t like alcohol culture
My family uses the ‘it’s five o’clock somewhere’ as in wine and cheese hour
But none of us drink
So it’s just.
Fancy cheese and cracker hour.
This is galaxy tier
afghan hounds are such weird looking dogs it’s like if a politician’s wife made a fursona
they come in exactly two flavors and they are “35 year old midwesterner who wants to sell you some essential oils”
and “wizard in disguise who isn’t even trying”
WAIT I just found a third kind and it’s “your state alchemy license is getting revoked”
