This blog is mostly a fandom blog? but. I have a wide range of nerdy interests, so I guess expect lots of fanart and gifs, but not of any specific thing. Also, there's sometimes equality stuff, as well as occasional textposts and things about myself. I'm usually pretty good about tagging but I'm not perfect, so. I dunno. Let me know if there's something you really want/need tagged and I'll do my best to remember.
I watched this 4 minute video about how reintroducing wolves to Yellowstone park literally changed everything about the park and just sat there for another two minutes, mouth open and teary eyed and amazed. Definitely worth a watch.
because seriously i have so much respect for the adventure time team. they’ve made a successful cartoon that isn’t random poop and fart jokes for a solid eleven minutes. sure, adventure time has its immature moments, but then there’s parts like this.
pb’s backed up against the wall in a position that’s way too common in today’s society. you can tell she’s scared and uncomfortable. so what does she do? she beats the shit out of ricardio.
she doesn’t “play nice”, she doesn’t “let him down gently”, she tears off his limbs and stomps on his face. then ricardio tries to play the nice guy card and she has none of it. it’s refreshing to see something aimed at children that doesn’t state that girls need to be polite and sweet and stand by while someone makes them uncomfortable.
basically, i love this show and i love how it teaches girls something that’ll actually come in handy some day. god fucking bless.
And this is back on the dash again. Always reblog.
"I really hated seeing reviews about how Pacific Rim knew how dumb it was. I propose the opposite. The movie works because it doesn’t know how dumb it is. There are no winky asides pointing out how silly it is that they’re using giant robots to fight giant monsters. No one subverts the ridiculous names. No one groans when “Stacker Pentecost” tells people to go to the “Shatterdome” and go inside “G***y Danger”. It is nothing but a beacon of sincerity, and I have to respect that. I mean, yes, it’s a riff on a once allegorical sub-genre that kind of devolved into cheapness and fan wank, but Guillermo Del Toro, he’s no dummy. There’s a very pulpy, neon beauty to this movie. It’s a special effects triumph, sure, but it’s also kind of a story triumph. Swiftly drawn, unforgettable characters, grown out of archetype, but humanized beyond archetype. And it’s a more progressive movie than you’d expect of the Hollywood blockbuster. It’s not a unilateral force where there’s a problem and only ‘Murica can stop it. I liked that the story is truly a team effort, that everyone’s little contributions add up to save the day. It’s a smarter narrative than what I was expecting, and…screw it, I like seeing robots punch giant monsters."
