Okay there are movie productions where actual people got killed. But right in the middle between those and like Cannibal Holocaust where they killed a bunch of animals, that's where I'd put "LXG".
I feel we don't talk enough about how the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie was SO awful it drove Sean Connery to quit acting and Alan Moore to quit all involvement with movies, and then society, and then writing comics. (After destroying the world of League in the ugliest, most hateful manner possible.)
It lost us more than probably any other movie ever made. It's the worst.
#mastoart "Ruins" attempt no. 2: I go to this store almost every day to get groceries, and after a year I finally remembered to take a picture for reference. Only two hours later,
I've posted this before, but I'm looking at it again, and damnit, I made a very good painting here, a few sloppy hair strands aside. #mastoart
She [referring to Amy] sighed as his [referring to Bob] manhood [colloquial for male external genitalia] slipped deep inside her [referring to Amy] wet sex [contextually colloquial for female external genitalia, broadly considered overly poetic to the point of vagueness by contemporary critics]
(All I did was suggest conservative extremists are equally bad news for queer people no matter if they are called Ibrahim or Jimmy, although Jimmy is obviously the bigger threat to me since he's sitting in my country's parliament and Ibrahim has trouble having his human rights recognized.)
I mean, I'm not saying I haven't been on the other side of that, getting upset and replying to one tweet multiple times and spiraling the conversation into parallel, incoherent threads. But boy it's satisfying to get a prominent white supremacist author to do it.
How can you look at this data and think "well they're saying no but they actually mean yes"?
It was the one thing where we overwhelmingly gave them a negative response.
And they try to pretend as though we didn't.
Do algorithms film and upload ads now? I keep seeing these absolutely pointless ads for games that are just clips of the game being played. Especially this one with ships shooting at each other, with no music, no sound except guns and a stilted voice going "enemy cruiser destroyed". So profoundly joyless, made without effort or imagination, doesn't try to say anything or go anywhere, can't appeal to anyone who isn't already playing the game.
There is a 4th grade trans girl in my son's class who just transitioned, and all the kids embraced it fully, according to my kids. All the kids defend her fiercely, like when someone dead names her (usually adults). This is so different from when I was their age in the '80s. I hope it's really getting better.
Seeing this strange notion you shouldn't #vote, because since the American Left started holding their nose and voted for the Democrats two years ago, nothing has changed.
I don't know what to tell you but he Right voted for the most disgusting presidential candidate most of them could have ever imagined of in 2015 and it's paying out for them now. I don't know what you think not voting is ever going to change.
