When 12-year-old girls are watching something like the CW’s long-running campy drama One Tree Hill (which aired from 2003-2012), in which actors like 25-year-old Hilarie Burton played 17-year-old cheerleader Peyton Sawyer, they’re not seeing an accurate portrayal of their future on screen. They’re seeing a glamorized vision of some executive’s idealized version of high school instead. When a real 16-year-old cheerleader flips on the CW and sees fellow pompom shakers who look like Burton or costar Sophia Bush, also well beyond her high school years, they’re looking at themselves at wondering why they don’t look like that in their uniform. Here’s the secret: they didn’t when they were 16, either.Samantha Wilson, Why Teenagers Need to Play Teenagers On Screen (via vuarbae)
I THOUGHT IT WAS SO FLOWY AND COOL AND SO ODD LIKE WOW ITS LIKE THE PERFECT SHAPE TO FLOW DOWN AND DROP LIKE THAT AND THEN I REALIZED IT WAS A BUNCH OF MINIATURE DICKS SO I WAS JUST„, “OH”
I thought they were peanuts
At first glance I saw jellybeans
I thought they were babies help
I thought it was a human spine…..
The dicks only make it better
WAY TO CUT OFF THE BEST PART OF THE WHOLE GIF
yeah ok i’m probably never going to stop laughing
Does existence precede essence? I feel for you, Bruce. It’s hard to debate the metaphysical when you’re a grown man who’s tired and dirty and wearing a strange dude’s pants.
#ruffalo’s rueful self-deprecating humour and sort of philosophical acceptance of his inner rage monster #is one of my favourite things about this film #especially as his seeming mellowness masks #a great deal of care and deliberation and always striving for that control #and a terrible struggle against being betrayed by himself #but he doesn’t waste time being all broody angst-puppet about it #because he is a fucking grown-up #ilu bruce
let’s all take a minute to stop and think about how Hagrid gave Harry his homemade birthday cake, told him how much he looked like his parents, and fed him sausages before he even started to explain that he was a wizard
let’s stop to think about how his absolute first priority was to let harry know that he was loved and cared for
ok I can’t let this one by again, this is incorrect and my nerd rage has been activated
He didn’t go there to say “Yer a wizard” he went there to deliver Harry’s Hogwarts letter. He didn’t even know Harry was out of the loop, and he clearly didn’t realize that the Dursleys were such assholes. He expected them to have told Harry about his heritage and to be polite enough to offer tea when he got there. He knew Harry wasn’t getting his letters, but it didn’t really occur to him why that would be.
Acting like a kindly old uncle, absolutely. Ridiculously lovely human/giant being? Definitely. But you got your facts wrong, bud.
