I didn’t realize how much this guy was my ideal English-language Herbert von Krolock until I rewatched this video and realized that I’ve written Herbert doing the whole draped-on-the-threshold thing he does here. I think I’ve subconsciously had him in mind for a while.
I have a problem for pale men with light hair… Sheesh.
now I must decide… Sleep for 4 hours maybe (I’m not even tired rn) or stay up and regret it later and have to take a nap…
My dad credits this as his favorite photo of me.
When I was younger, I was very socially anxious. I hated crowds, hated attention, hated being up on stage. In preschool there was this little Halloween show that we put on, and man, I did not want to do that shit, let me tell you. All those parents watching me sing some stupid song? Nah, that ain’t me.
But I was forced to, and I was pissed about it. My dad was in the audience, taking pictures and enjoying the show. In that moment, I swear, my tiny four year old was pure rage and resentment. I felt the word “fuck” years before I knew what it was.
My dad pointed the camera at me, and I turned, and I looked. I gave him the look that summed up all the anger, all the absolute fury that was brewing inside me. He says that he had never before seen such a perfect depiction of total and complete hatred. In his four year old son.
To this day whenever I get pissed, he calls me “Buzz Lightyear”.
There may come a time when I don’t reblog this post but that day is not this day.
ok guys, serious question. i looked up TFioS on wikipedia to see wtf it was about (prompted by all this “metaphor” bs as of late) and i gotta say it looks…really boring. like, i got bored reading the summary. now i haven’t read it, i won’t pass judgement on it, i just wanna know the opinions of someone who has. is it worthwhile? why did it get so popular? is the writing worth a damn?
I was wondering the same thing, though I have found that most books that fall into the hearts of mainstream media tend to bore me to tears.
We are fantasy people. We like things that aren’t real. TFioS is just… fiction that mirrors real life and to me and you that’s dull. That’s also why we don’t play SIMs or 2nd Life.
We need adventure, excitement, and terror. Our own lives are real enough to fill that need for reality.
Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
She does have a point though..
Kids who are smarter than adults though.
