I am actually a big sissy, and growing up, I never used to watch horror movies. ‘Bambi’ gave me nightmares.

Anonymous asked: there's these recent interviews to nicole beharie and the way she talked about tom mison seem kind of---- dismissive? like in that interview at comic con where asked about the reception to her alone as opposed to alongside tom mison she goes "i didn't expect to get this much cheer all by myself, I expected it to get it only when I'm with my male counterpart (tom mison/ichabod) and i dunno it seemed kind of cold-- thoughts?

I think she’s speaking more to the fact that poc women are hardly ever leads in tv shows, let alone a genre show, let alone a SUPER successful genre show like Sleepy Hollow. Outside of the romance aspect, Nicole never expected Abbie Mills to be someone crowds gravitated towards I guess, owing to the trend that PoC women in tv shows are sides, or in the case of being a lead, not lead for very long (I think Kerry Washington in Scandal is certainly pathbreaking for African American women proving conclusively they can carry a show and saying fuck you to Hollywood’s racist shit bag attitude) It seems Nicole had prepared herself to be sidelined by Mison’s Ichabod, and while Mison and Ichabod surely gets a LOT of love, so does Nicole and Abbie. She underestimated how much people would relate to her, JUST her as a character- someone who’s strong in her convictions, caring and someone who’s not perfect but has human complexities and flaws. People love them separately, their characters separately and their characters together. She probably assumed she’d just be liked as the love interest and nothing more. It must mean a lot to Nicole to be proven wrong in this case.

Heck tbh, did you know almost all critics said Sleepy Hollow wouldn’t be successful before it aired? They said it was fun but would would probably be cancelled (LOL FOX ;A;)

To not only be widely successful, but also  popular critically and publicly, it’s a lot for anyone on that show, especially Nicole I bet.

I don’t understand why anon would view what Nicole said as “dismissive”. It’s the same thing fed to many actresses in the entertainment industry about their viability as leads in their own right, more so if the actress is a WOC. Would it be viewed as “dismissive” when Scarlett Johansson makes similar comments about her yet-to-be-greenlit Black Widow movie? White actresses are always talking about the sexism in the industry, and it IS sexism if you’re being told that the only way your endeavors will succeed is if a man is involved, then why would Nicole’s comments be taken as her “dismissing” Tom and not as a stark example of the sexism she has to deal with?

Just started reading Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur (I hope I spelled it right) and if someone could help me out with more titles about the arthurian legend I would appreciate that a lot:)

If ou’d like older texts you can download them here :D

For novels I truly love: Idylls of the Queen (Phyllis Ann Karr), Gerald Morris’ amazing parodic series, Persia Wolley’s Guinevere trilogy, Mary Stewart’s Merlin trilogy (and her novel The Wicked Day), The Road to Avalon (Joan Wolf), The Winter Prince (Elizabeth Wein), The once and future king (White), Exiled from Camelot (Cherith Baldry), Corbenic (Catherine Fisher), Firelord (Parke Godwin), The Pendragon (Catherine Mary Christian) and Sword at Sunset (Rosemary Sutcliff).

What do Saturn’s rings look like from the dark side? From Earth, we usually see Saturn’s rings from the same side of the ring plane that the Sun illuminates them — one might call this the bright side. Geometrically, in the above picture taken in August by the robot Cassini spacecraft now orbiting Saturn, the Sun is behind the camera but on the other side of the ring plane. Such a vantage point gives a breathtaking views of the most splendid ring system in the Solar System. Strangely, the rings have similarities to a photographic negative of a front view. For example, the dark band in the middle is actually the normally bright B-ring. The ring brightness as recorded from different angles indicates ring thickness and particle density of ring particles. At the top left of the frame is Saturn’s moon Tethys, which although harder to find, contains much more mass than the entire ring system.

out of all the aspects of millennial-bashing, i think the one that most confuses me is the “millennials all got trophies as a kid, so now they’re all self-centered narcissists” theory

like— kids are pretty smart, y’all. they can see that every kid on the team gets a trophy and is told they did a good job; they can also see that not every kid on the team deserves a trophy, and not everyone did do a good job

the logical conclusion to draw from this is not “i’m great and i deserve praise”— it’s “no matter how mediocre i am, people will still praise me to make me feel better, so i can’t trust any compliments or accolades i receive”

this is not a recipe for overconfidence and narcissism. it is a recipe for constant self-guessing, low self-esteem, and a distrust of one’s own abilities and skills.

where did this whole “ugh millennials think their so-so work is super great” thing even come from it is a goddamn mystery

what fucking kills me is, yeah, maybe we got the trophies, but who gave them out

this is not a recipe for overconfidence and narcissism. it is a recipe for constant self-guessing, low self-esteem, and a distrust of one’s own abilities and skills.

Which is pretty much what mental health practitioners observe happening.

It’s also what I observed happening as a singing teacher: the older kids literally would not believe a positive word I said until I had proved I would tell them they screwed up/had done badly/etc. I did so in as useful a way as possible (“So this passage. We really need to work on this passage. A lot. This passage is not good yet.”), but with almost every adolescent I taught I had to prove I would give them straight-up criticism before they would parse my praise as anything other than meaningless “the grownups always do this” noise.

HARRIET TUBMAN ESCAPED FROM SLAVERY AND THEN WENT BACK TO GET OTHERS. LIKE, I KNOW YOU KNOW WHO HARRIET TUBMAN IS AND THAT SHE DID THAT, BUT I JUST WANT YOU TO TAKE THAT IN FOR A SECOND. 

HARRIET TUBMAN WAS HELD CAPTIVE AND BOUND TO UNPAID, BACK-BREAKING LABOR SINCE BIRTH UNDER PENALTY OF TORTURE OR DEATH. SHE MANAGED TO ESCAPE THAT LIFE, AND SHE TURNED THE FUCK AROUND AND WENT THE FUCK BACK TO GET EVERYONE ELSE WHO WAS STILL TRAPPED IN IT. AND THEN SHE DID IT AGAIN EIGHTEEN MORE TIMES.

WHEN ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS UNSURE WHETHER OR NOT HE WAS PREPARED TO MAKE A STAND AGAINST SLAVERY, HARRIET TUBMAN BASICALLY SAID HE SHOULD STOP BEING SUCH A DIAPER BABY AND THAT GUYS WHO ARE TOO SCARED TO END SLAVERY DON’T DESERVE TO WIN WARS.

NOT ONLY DID SHE SECRET OVER 300 SLAVES TO FREEDOM ON THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD, BUT SHE ACTED AS A SPY FOR THE UNION ARMY DURING THE CIVIL WAR, AND BECAME THE FIRST WOMAN TO LEAD AN ARMED ASSAULT IN THE CIVIL WAR. THAT RAID BROUGHT FREEDOM TO OVER 700 SLAVES IN ONE GO.

SO I JUST WANT YOU TO STEW ON THAT FOR LIKE A MINUTE. ACTING IN THE SHADOWS, SHE WALKED INTO HELL ON EARTH 19 TIMES TO SAVE HER FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS FROM THE TORMENT SHE ENDURED, AND THE SECOND SHE WAS GIVEN EVEN A MODICUM OF POWER, SHE MANAGED TO FREE SEVEN HUNDRED SLAVES IN ONE DAY

I GUARANTEE, HOWEVER IMPRESSED YOU ALREADY ARE WITH HARRIET TUBMAN, YOU ARE FALLING LIKE AT LEAST 40% SHORT OF HOW IMPRESSED YOU SHOULD BE WITH HARRIET TUBMAN. SHE IS ONE OF THE BEST EXAMPLES OF BADASSERY IN THE ENTIRETY OF AMERICAN HISTORY.
