firefly/character tropes-kaylee frye

All right, can I take a minute to talk about why Kaylee Frye is perfect? She’s an unkempt beauty that no one tries to dress up, she’s a tomboy with no regrets about her girly streak, she’s just “I love the floofy dress, I want the floofy dress, look at me being damned cute in my floofy dress,” her overalls have cute things like teddy bears, and she wears pink, and florals, and she’s the sweet, nice girl, who’s also sexual, she literally met Mal while having sex with someone, she spends the whole damned series trying to get laid, she comments that she masturbates (“Ain’t had nothing twixt my nethers weren’t run on batteries”) and it’s no big deal, and is 100% supportive of Inara (“Have good sex!”)

She’s not pigeonholed into anything other than being really cheerful, and great with engines. 

The more I hear about Firefly, the more I think I should finally give it a shot…

YES YOU SHOULD

My appreciation for Kaylee Frye is never-ending. I nearly died of joy right on the spot when my English housemate once asked me if I’d watched Firefly because I “reminded [him] of the mechanic”.

She’s a wonderfully dynamic character.

just want to raise a glass for oberyn for being one of the few characters who is actually disgusted and enraged by rape and the rape culture of westeros while being non-white, non-het, and not a huge piece of crap towards bastards and non-noble ppl

Most people say that the Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, etc. is the most intense show, but the fourth season of The Wire stands above them all.  The Red Wedding is nothing compared to seeing kids in their early teens being fucked for the rest of their lives by underfunded, under-performing, and uncaring institutions.  

But the whole time it wasnt the schools that failed them. It was their parents who failed them long before that.
Dukie and Mike were the sons of drug addicts which forced Dukie to become one and made Mike had to find a way to take care of his little brother.
Randy’s parents (Cheese and Prop Joe’s family) abandoned him forcing him into the foster care of Ms Anna
Namond’s mom literally forced him onto the corner.

Lance Underwood (QT Albums on Tumblr) has undoubtedly cemented his status as a “cool dad” thanks to his fantastic recreations of music album covers featuring his two sons, Taj and Amar.

Cool dad, indeed. Love this.

I dig this so hard!

Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane

One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.

I’m almost positive I have reblogged this before… zero fucks. So beautiful

Question reblogged from John Green's tumblr with 18,245 notes

you-wish-you-had-this-url asked: I've been seeing a lot of people talk about Gus sounding really pretentious in the movie, do you think he sounds pretentious?

fishingboatproceeds:

I mean, that scene is word-for-word from the book, so don’t blame the movie! :) Yes, Gus is super pretentious at the start of the story. it’s a character flaw.

Gus wants to have a big and important and remembered life, and so he acts like he imagines people who have such lives act. So he’s, like, says-soliloquy-when-he-means-monologue pretentious, which is the most pretentious variety of pretension in all the world.

And then his performative, over-the-top, hyper-self-aware pretentiousness must fall away for him to really connect to Hazel, just as her fear of being a grenade must fall away. That’s what the novel is about. That is its plot.

Gus must make the opposite of the traditional heroic journey—he must start out strong and end up weak in order to reimagine what constitutes a rich and well-lived life.

Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie.

(Standard acknowledgement here that I might be wrong, that I am inevitably defensive of TFIOS, that it has many flaws, that there’s nothing wrong with critical discussion, and that a strong case could be made that I should not insert myself into these conversations at all.)
