All the weird misinterpretations and revisions of Russian history aside, Anastasia is one of my favourite movies because its plot structure is so fucking weird
It’s a period piece romance. That’s cool, that’s all well and good, except that on the sidelines there’s an undead warlock who’s trying so hard to kill the protagonist, but all in ways that the protagonist either doesn’t notice or doesn’t accept as supernatural
And it isn’t a twist! The audience knows about the warlock! The warlock has a villain song! The warlock is one of the principal characters! But the protagonist spends 95% of the movie completely unaware of the warlock, and just spends the entirety of the movie doing period piece romance things while being repeatedly inconvenienced by the warlock until the climax, when the protagonist has to very suddenly
- Acknowledge the existence of the warlock
- Acknowledge the existence of the supernatural
- See some real-ass goddamn magic
- Kill the warlock
I have never seen a movie with a plot structure like this before, and I don’t think I’ll see one like it ever again. It’s like an adaptation of Pride and Prejudice that turns Lady Catherine into a vampire who’s just repeatedly trying to drink Lizzy’s blood, but Lizzy doesn’t even notice until the climax whereupon she stuffs Lady Catherine’s mouth with garlic and cuts off her head (an adaptation I would kill to see, by the way). There are two completely different genres playing out at the same time, and one of them is trying to kill the other
Anyways that’s why the stage musical is bad, thank you and good night
is there a dance/club mix of sufjan stevens - impossible soul that’s based on the bit from around 15:00-19:00 or do i have to make it myself
why take the lords name in vain when u COULD have the vocabulary of a baseball playing kid from the 40s
“It’s nice to find that little American boys do really say ‘Gee whiz.’“–J.R.R. Tolkien, on receiving a letter from an American fan, 1944.
“AFAB chests are censored on-” ok but this standard isn’t an “AFAB” thing, anyone who’s AMAB and has boobs is gonna be held to the same thing.
Using “AFAB” to talk about like, the experience of being subjected to misogynistic standards because some afab trans people are held to them is fucking bad actually.
Fuck off with this faux inclusivity.
Yes some non-women face misogyny. If your way of understanding this is to search+replace any mention of “women” with “AFABs” your inclusivity is transmisogynistic, incoherent garbage.
I must admit that “shit-ass” is not a word I ever thought I’d see in a 19th century letter… but here we are.
“This is kind of a shit-ass of a letter, but I just wanted to let you know I was alive.”
- Gilbert Patterson to Jack, June 16, 1896.

me, mentally bracing myself for months, if not years of psychological evaluation: “So I think I might be trans?”
doc: “cool cool cool cool”
No one I know has had the same experience as me getting on hrt and honestly it’s a damn shame
doc: “so… do you wanna start estrogen today or…?”
This is the blessed post of ungatekeeping. Reblog this to never again have to barter with a medical professional regarding treatment of your mental or physical health.
the idea of consuming two conflicting things that promise to do the opposite of each other has always been hilarious to me. there’s a liquid shot-based sleep aid called 6 hour sleep and as soon as I saw it i immediately imagined mixing it and a 5 hour energy together for a 1 hour nap
mix NyQuil and DayQuil to create Quil
what does Quil do
All the time all the time
He’s a bad guy, but he’s not a bad guy

The text reads:
“Despite their abrasive appearance, Dennis reveals the punks he shot “were so nice”, and says “they stand for the opposite of their shaven-headed, extreme-tattooed, frightening look. They believe in anarchy, they’re warm-hearted and tender in a way”. With so much of style culture featuring playground one-upmanship, there’s a refreshing “freedom to be yourself” in this scene. Punk is, after all, about smashing the barriers of embarrassment. As Dennis observes, “they never make fun of each other”. For him, excitement comes from such integrity. “This style isn’t a passing fad for them, it’s not a weekend thing.” he says “A two foot Mohican(?) is a choice never to be rich - normal jobs aren’t an option. These punks have rejected society’s uniform and created their own. They’re striving for a different world.”

Each lapel is covered entirely with a mix of badges and spikes, and the shoulders are lined with spikes too. Patches have been safety pinned to the sleeves and front of the jacket. They’re smiling. /end Image Description]
