LET ME POINT OUT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE:
Here, Captain America - a hero in this film - is standing still while three other kinds of heroes, rush around to do thier job. (this is in no way bashing Cap, he is simply standing still at this moment, most likely in shock/fatigue). A soldier, a BLACK COP and two firemen. While American’s super soldier is immobilized, our every day heroes are still fighting to ensure safety and peace. The fact that Marvel created this moment in thier film, a film focused on the heroes, speaks yet again to thier message that you don’t have to be a super, to be super.

THIS IS MARRIAGE!!

Thats right!

Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.

He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”

Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.

I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT

LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.

In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.

Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.

Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT. 

Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.

FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.

^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.

I would check first too if I was married to Cersi.  

Today i learned i wanted to be a Spartan.

Can we talk about Face Off

image

because look at this shit

image

Fucking gorgeous

image

This is art

image

people create all of this

image

over the span of three days

image

and it looks so incredible

image

and every one of the pieces are so unique

image

this is all silicone, foam, and paint

image

all put together to create these characters

image

it blows my mind

image

I am astounded

image

the amount of detail in some of these

image

Makeup is so fucking rad

image

Face Off, guys

I wish the show focused more on the art than the (often artificial) drama. I want detail shots of these. They move to fast for me to see most of this awesomeness. And I love it when the artists describe their blown out backgrounds of a character. It’s so so good and i want more of that.

this is my second project for my comic storytelling class in which a human woman gets hired to be a grim reaper.

Can we discuss how really, really cool it is that Olivia Wilde is breastfeeding her son for Glamour magazine?
Can we establish that it’s really amazing that it will be showcasing female breasts for their intended purpose and showcases her as a mother, just doing mother things?
Can I say that I find this unbelievably cool and I’m really glad it’s a thing that’s happening?
Even if I can’t, I’m gonna. Because it is and I’m really glad it’s happening.

Puppy’s got people to bark at and things to sniff.
