its monday. lets get on it cunts
Now I can assume at least a good portion of the people on this site have seen Treasure Planet. If not, it’s on Netflix so go do that. I’ll wait.
Now I know you people all love to over-analyze characters, so it confuses me as to why no one talks about this man
This is John Silver, pirate captain and the main villain of the movie. Right from the get-go, this dude gives off some bad vibes. Mostly because some dude in the beginning of the movie says
And you also find out pretty early on that he and his crew are planning a mutiny. But what makes Silver a great character is the way they have him connect with the protagonist, Jim Hawkins. Jim’s dad left when he was younger and when Silver finds out, he kind of puts himself in that role.
He gave Jim the role model he needed to get his crap together, which made it sting even more when he found out Silver’s true intentions.
But despite being so close to his lifelong goal, he can’t bring himself to hurt Jim and actually abandons his dream in order to save him.
(Only picture I could find of the scene) But what’s even better is that the two end the adventure on good terms.
He’s such a well written villain because he shows us that “villains” don’t actually need to be evil or malicious. They simply require goals opposed to the protagonist. The “villain” of the story may even be the one in the right. Treasure Planet breaks the typical mold of a villain character in such a good way, and I encourage anyone who is getting into any sort of story writing, whether it be for books, movies, tv, video games, etc. to watch this movie. It shows that villains can be something beyond “I am evil for the sake of being evil.“ Please watch this movie and see for yourself.
men who drive fucking gigantic shiny pickups that they obviously just have as ego-boosters who fucking tailgate you on an empty stretch of freeway at night and they’ve replaced their headlights with fucking military-grade 500 proton scatter billion lumen searchlights that they fucking utterly blind you with while honking for you to get out of your lane because they just desperately have to go a full 40 miles over the speed limit or their dick will just jump clean off their balls and hurl itself out their window in shame
things eragon did right:
• a black woman in a position of power (arguably one of the highest positions in the series itself)
• men openly showing emotions (crying, having breakdowns, etc)
• women calling men out on their sexism and shutting them the fuck down
• women being shown as being stronger than men (emotionally and physically) several times throughout the book and series
• are you kidding me I could go on for hours about this series
• it influenced the way I viewed the world and for that I will forever be in love with it holy shit
• also dragons
Everyone going shopping on Black Friday, be aware of three things:
The retail workers are working 12 hours shifts. We are threatened with losing our jobs if we don’t show up unless we’re dying in the hospital. I had an assistant manager show up with fucking strep because he would’ve been fired otherwise. Yes, he did infect 7 and hospitalize 2 coworkers; who knows how many members of the public he infected.
The stores have, maybe, 5 of that special cheap thing you’re after. Corporate does this on purpose, and stores are not allowed to order enough. The prices aren’t even that much lower. They lie about how expensive something is to fool you into thinking you’re getting a discount. You aren’t.
Most of the workers you will come across will be new hires for the sole purpose of being bodies for about three months before they’re fired. They actually don’t know anything because they’ve been working there for maybe two weeks, and have had no real training. I was once hired at Staples a week before Black Friday and expected to know how to deal with phones, coupons, the online ordering site, and AS400 after five 6-hour shifts. This is the kind of person you will likely be dealing with at Black Friday.
Do me and my retail family a favor and don’t shop Black Friday. Any company that needs a sale day like Black Friday to get their sales out of the red doesn’t deserve to be in business.
This also goes for anyone that works shipment too. We’re suddenly expected to stay as late as they want you to even if they know you don’t have a car and rely on a ride to get you to and from work and know you can’t stay late. Shipment workers will suddenly start getting berated for not getting things done and it is by far the most stressful time to be a shipment worker for any store. Especially when they throw in new hires that don’t know how to process things and are expected to work at the same pace as the people that have worked there for a while.
Retail is shit around the holidays, especially Black Friday
ok fellow millenials, it’s time to kill black friday
LET’S KILL BLACK FRIDAY
I was gonna put this in the tags but it seems relevant.
Try to be super super kind to any service worker in the holiday season. I’ve worked in both retail and foodservice over the holidays, and Thanksgiving and Christmas are the worst times for both. I refuse to decorate for Christmas anymore because of it.
So over the holidays, remember that if you’re gonna be shopping, or taking your family of 10 out to eat, or meeting all your high school friends for coffee, or whatever, to be extra nice to your workers (and tip very well, if applicable). Because a lot of people forget how bad it gets for foodservice workers in this season, and people always need a reminder to be nice to retail workers
My brilliant friend pointed out to me that in the very first triailer for KH3, this is what we see:
That’s right, Eraqus’s keyblade. And why that Keyblade? Why not Aqua’s? Or Ven’s? Why is that so important you ask?
Because of this. Aqua knew this was going to happen, and that Sora was her only hope. So she sent her keyblade away, so that Xehanort wouldn’t be able to get the one person she was still trying to protect.
Also, an important moment to remember is this from the 0.2 Opening cutscene.
It wasn’t a tease or clickbait. It was her giving Sora the necessary means to save Ventus.
This is more punk than the whole of punk history.
I’ll tell you what’s ferocious. Freddie’s comeback to Sid calling him “Freddie Platinum” when they were recording down the hall from each other at London’s Wessex Studios (Queen for News of the World, Pistols for Bollocks).
Sid Vicious made the mistake one day of bursting into Queen’s control room and antagonizing their frontman. “Have you succeeded in bringing ballet to the masses, then?” he sneered. “Oh, yes, Simon Ferocious,” Mercury replied. “We’re trying our best, dear.”
Then, according to Queen biographer Daniel Nester, Freddie rose from his chair and began to playfully flick the safety pins displayed on the front of Sid’s leather jacket. “Tell me,” he asked, “did you arrange these pins just so?” When Sid stepped forward in an attempt to intimidate Freddie, the singer simply pushed him backwards and inquired, “What are you going to do about it?” Sid immediately backed down.

This is a blessed story
Freddie Mercury was the best ever
hey friendly reminder incest is bad, adult/minor relationships are bad, and any nsfw involving minors is literally child porn (no matter their age) and also illegal to possess! the fact that these are controversial opinions blows my mind and if any of you support any of these things block me bitch!!!
me: what could possibly go wrong
what went wrong:
There’s a reason why those regulations were in place, to protect consumers from shit like this. To no surprise, this administration’s policies are not for the protection of it’s people-they serve the interests of the large corporations-not for the people, not for America.
It should also be noted that these companies could still follow the now-repealed safety regulations. They’re showing their colors as bastards by immediately jumping on all this deregulation to save a few bucks at the cost of consumers’ health and well-being. Any of the people running these companies could take the easiest moral stance and literally save lives, and they adamantly refuse to do so because they are literal monsters who value capital over lives
