take a moment to realize you have never seen your face in person, just reflections and pictures
some scientists agree that if you saw a clone of yourself, you wouldn’t recognise it as you, because our idea of what we look like is so different from what we actually look like
This gave me anxiety
I carefully avoided the car commercial aesthetics or the army recruitment video aesthetics. I avoided making a movie about an army with ranks. I avoided making any kind of message that says war is good. We have enough firepower in the world. I was very careful how I built the movie.
One of the other things I decided was that I wanted a female lead (Babel’s Rinko Kikuchi) who has the equal force as the male leads. She’s not going to be a sex kitten, she’s not going to come out in cutoff shorts and a tank top, and it’s going to be a real earnestly drawn character. One of the decisions we made as we went along in the process of the movie was, let’s not have a love story. Let’s have a story about two people…
I have been offered movies that have huge budgets that have war at its centre and I said, ‘I don’t do that.’ I have two daughters and I wanted to make this movie for kids. It’s my lightest movie and yet it’s one of the most precise, adult exercises in world design I’ve ever made. It has the craft of a 48-year-old (del Toro’s age) and the heart of a 12-year-old.
What I wanted was for kids to see a movie where they don’t need to aspire to be in an army to aspire for an adventure. And I used very deliberate language that is a reference to westerns. I don’t have captains, majors, generals. I have a marshal, rangers…it has the language of an adventure movie. I want kids to come out of the movie and say, I want to be a Jaeger pilot! I really think that would be my dream come true.”

#well I need some place to sit
Is exactly what I needed after a nap.
This is extremely unacceptable I need to put it on my blog.
was this entirely necessary?
I feel like it was, yes.
It’s his whole body. In perfect clarity.
I REALLY ENJOYED THIS THANK YOU
A bouquet of clumsy words: you know that place between sleep and awake where you’re still dreaming but it’s slowly slipping? I wish we could feel like that more often. I also wish I could click my fingers three times and be transported to anywhere I like. I wish that people didn’t always say ‘just wondering’ when you both know there was a real reason behind them asking. And I wish I could get lost in the stars.

Stop. This is important.
i was gonna say something meaningful #about the way steve looks at bucky like he’s the sun #even though in bucky’s head steve is the sun. steve is the sun & he’s oblivious to his own glow. #he lights up a room & he doesn’t even know it. #he’s a star & bucky would rather reach for him than for freedom or justice or winning the war or going home. #because to him steve embodies all of those things. #if bucky has steve he is free. if bucky has steve steve will do the right thing. #if bucky has steve he can always win. any war. anything. he can always win. #if bucky has steve he is home. #steve rogers is the sun & bucky barnes will always fly too close. #bucky wouldn’t believe it if you told him but steve feels the exact same way about him. #i was going to say all of that. but then i noticed steve’s shaking arm & was reduced to a 12 yr old white boy. #so. looks like he’s jerkin it. #alright
i literally hate when people always try to dismiss race and act like it “isn’t a problem anymore”
i’m mixed. my dad is a 6’3 black male, my mom is white w/ blonde hair and blue eyes.
you and your family have never been randomly pulled over by cops on several occasions just so they could ask your mom if she’s “okay”
there’s still a fucking problem
interracial relationships dont end racism, point blank.
