I find it disgusting that when Mark dedicated The Flood to Robbie, certain ‘fans’ booed him. I shouted at a few girls next to me to shut up, it was awful. Mark looked so disappointed in them.
They’re like family, so no matter what negative opinion you have on him, they don’t give a shit what you think. It was both Gary and Rob back in the 90’s who the trouble was around, but you all forget there were three other members involved. I think it’s unfair certain ‘fans’ choose to hate on Rob. Fair enough you may not like him for other reasons, but shut the fuck up ruining things like last night for everyone else. They’re not fans if they don’t support the band as a whole, which they’ve shown. Pathetic people.
Even though they’d booed him, they still sang along didn’t they, fucking hypocrites.
PROGRESS. It meant a lot.
I swear I cannot believe what I’m reading on tumblr today. Poor Markie.
Look I get that you may not like Rob, he’s done and said some horrible things about Take That and Gaz and he has a personality that either you love him or you hate him. Seriously, I get it. I, myself, spent almost 8 years without listening to Take That because of how hurt I was as a teenager for the way Robbie left the band and the horrible things he said about everything. Never stopped listening to their solo careers, but the TT albums? They gathered a lot of dust during those 8 years. And I did, truly, hold Rob responsible for that. Now, I get it. I understand what happened. And you know what? If you don’t or if you don’t care, that’s fine. Honestly fine. But, dude, he made amends. If the four boys found a way to forgive him and vice versa, who the fuck are you to question that? The least you -as a fan- owe them is respect. You don’t care for Rob, fine, don’t fucking sing along his songs, don’t pay attention to him, whatever. But to stand there, in a beautiful venue that Markie put together for you, and do something so fucking rude is completely unacceptable.
you can preach about slut-shaming all you want, but you can’t deny there’s something very wrong with 13 and 14-year old girls going out in skirts and dresses so short they barely cover their asses and shirts with necklines so low they show off cleave they haven’t got yet, drinking and even smoking and hooking up with guys before they even have a substantial knowledge of how sex and sexual relationships work.
Yes, there is something wrong with it. No, you are not better than said girls. And no, it is STILL NOT AN EXCUSE TO SLUT SHAME. Not even 13 year olds with “dresses so short they barely cover their asses”.
There IS a reason why very young girls engage in these types of behaviors, and at the fragile age of 13, it’s not because they are conscientiously reclaiming their sexuality and their body. It’s because they’ve already had their sexual power taken away from them. At 13, they’ve already learned that their sole value as young women is their ability to be sexually desirable to men. It’s a form of self-objectification and it is caused by (not a JUSTIFICATION FOR) sexism.
This has everything to do with the same dysfunctional culture about sexuality that allows people to think slut shame is *~totes cool cuz those girls are dumb hoes~*. People need to STOP revictimizing these young women who are ONLY ACTING ON WHAT THEY’VE LEARNED. Instead of looking down on them and continuing the cycle of telling them that they’re worthless, they need to know that they’re WORTHWHILE. Not just because they are attractive and desirable, but because they’re also strong, smart, funny, interesting, kind, talented, and any number of other traits that someone who is learning to see themselves as an object might not immediately recognize.
Shit like this just really pisses me off.
Day 6: Least Favorite Episode
Dye! Dye my Darling!, Y en español, Amores Tigres (413) No es que sea un mal episodio, en realidad es muy bueno, son los acontecimientos lo que no me gustan, Daria pinta mal el pelo de Jane, acto seguido, se besa con Tom en su auto.. Damn It! Damn It! Damn It!
Justo ayer veia este capitulo y le decia eso a mi hermana. Este cap es un antes y un despues en Daria para mi. Yo creo que Daria jamas en la puta vida le haria eso a Jane en serio, fue tan de la nada, tan pelotudo, tan innecesario, no de esa manera. No me gusta una mierda.
Odio a Tom.
Heads up to all my followers who have not seen the latest Iron Man movie. This is going to be a spoiler heavy review so if you want to avoid ruining the experience for yourselves, keep on scrolling by.
Ain’t nothing more delicious than seeing butthurt comic book fans flipping out about The Mandarin’s deal in this movie. I can’t say I loved the twist myself, but that’s only because it smacks too much of Ra’s in Batman Begins.
Let me just say that I consider the Marvel Cinematic Universe a completely seperate universe of its own. And so, I believe, does Marvel itself.
I agree on the Marvel Movies being a different Marvel Universe all together. Still, I’m fully one of those “butthurt comic book fans” that’s flipping out about the disgrace The Mandarin was. I accept that some people will love the flip and that’s OK. We are all entitled to our own opinions. But personally, it felt like a middle finger. Making The Mandarin such a joke was like if they make The Enchantress a lame-ass whiny baby with love issues or fucking Red Skull a business man working for the US.
Don’t mean to be rude, sorry if it sounds that way. But it makes me cringe when people insult others just for having different standards when it comes to these movies.
All these people ‘fan girling’ over how amazing Iron Man 3 was, calling it the “best Marvel film ever” have clearly never read an Iron Man comic. It’s not the best Marvel film. It was ridiculously terrible, and an insult to the fans who have stuck by from day one of the Phase One cinematic adaptions.
Before I get to my main rant, some pros of the film.
- Beautifully realised cinematography.
- Guy Pearce was excellent, though the extremis plot strayed from the original concept.
- I liked how Jarvis had a bigger role.
- James Badge Dale as a villain. I’m glad he’s getting more recognition.
So you’ve been warned, below are massive SPOILERS within my thoughts.
Why the hell would Joss Whedon, Kevin Feige, Stan Lee, hell, anybody at Marvel, sign off on letting Shane Black (director of one of my favourite films, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) turn the role of The Mandarin, Iron Man’s main nemesis, into a washed up, drunk actor named Trevor?
I almost yelled out “What the fuck!” in the theatre, but didn’t because I didn’t want to interrupt my fellow cinema-goers. That was literally, the biggest cop out, kick to the pants plot twist I’ve seen in any cinematic adaption of a comic or graphic novel.
Marvel had been teasing at the Mandarin and ten rings since the first Iron Man film, and then it was all for nothing. The only way they could redeem that aspect was if it was all a real decoy for Trevor to be a red herring, and he is in fact The Mandarin who has now infiltrated the US. An after credits scene teasing that would have been amazing, and somehow The Ten Rings will work with Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet in Guardians of the Galaxy, or even Avengers 2. And maybe even Tony fixing the icing problem with the suit and flying to space to join the Guardians of the Galaxy. The Mandarin is like the Joker. He’s an arch nemesis… not Trevor. Marvel need to step up to their A-Game and redeem themselves with Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
THIS. ALL OF THIS.
MORE SPOILERS NEXT, YOU’VE BEEN WARNED
Seriously, the first fucking post i find that actually questions the massacre they did with this fucking movie. The worst thing is that mainly, the rest of the movie was pretty good (i will say that I have issues with certain things but compared to what they did with The Mandarin, every other thing is secondary). I even waited for the movie to finish, so that i could enter into Marvel Database so I could read about the Mandarin.. maybe in some small weird Universe that I didn’t know about the Mandarin was just a useless asshole—- that would’ve made this stupid ass arc at least understandable… but that was not the case either.
And now they’ve ruined the character, there’s no way to redeem him. Thanks to the movies now, he is the biggest comic relieve in the history of the Phase 1 movies, even more than fucking Justin Hammer and I never thought that would happen. This is The Mandarin, ok? The mother fucking Mandarin is the biggest comic relieve in this Marvel Movie world. I feel like fucking crying.
The worst part is, for me at least, that I had faith considering all the amazing people involved with this movie. From the director himself to Executive Producers and every fucking consultant. My worries are… are they getting so comfortable with the Marvel Movie franchise that right now they don’t care about quality anymore? I mean, they do whatever the fuck they want and they will still sell the fuck out of these movies. What are we supposed to expect for the next phase? It scares me.
Or maybe I’m just overreacting, which could also be a possibility.
Anyway, I’ll sit here and wait for marvel not to ruin the second Thor and Captain America movies.
No, but really, I’m fine.
I only have one little thing to say, that i need to get out of my chest and this is why right now I can’t even talk about the movie…
“The Mandarin is portrayed as a genius scientist and a superhumanly skilled martial artist. However, his primary sources of power are ten power rings that he adapted from the alien technology of a crashed space ship. Each ring has a different power and is worn on a specific finger.” [x]
Thank you for making a fucking joke of The Mandarin. Really. Wonderful way of ruining a fucking movie.
Who will play the characters in the film? Much of the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past is made up of returning characters from the previous films, but a few of them are newcomers and some of…
LEAVE WARPATH ALONE, SHIT.
Mr. Singer keeps ruining everything. Including characters just for fanservice is not a good thing at all. This movie is such a fucking wreck… this is gonna be a useless parade of past and present future of mutants.
Can somebody answer this question for me? Are there actually females in the TVD fandom? No that’s not me being stupid, its me being confused.
Why you may ask? For the simple reason that a lot of you if not most seem to enjoy seeing every single female on this show be victimized and then have the audacity to call it romantic? Like I really want to get inside your heads or do a case study on you guys because I don’t understand it.
I’ve been told I’m closed-minded and stuck in my ways, but honestly I’ve tried to give couples like Delena and Klaroline a chance, really I have but I just can’t, I have too much pride for myself and my own gender. I have been taught better, I have been taught that women deserve respect, that women are free to live life as they please so why in all hell would I get behind something that strips that away like its nothing?
I know its television I get it we are supposed to be entertained but there is a fine line between entertainment and glorifying abuse, I’m all for dark and twisty but there are other ways to make things difficult ways that don’t involve traumatizing a female character and then having them brush it off and forgive like its nothing. I don’t know but I find that seriously disturbing and like it or not TV has an impact on people it might not be you personally but I know people who are influenced by television and some of the girls I’ve spoken with actually think that things like this are romantic…
It just makes me sick to my stomach that some people don’t know what its like to be in a real relationship. In real life you wouldn’t go for someone like Damon or Klaus you’d want someone like Stefan or Tyler and if you don’t then I’m afraid to say that you have deep rooted issues.
I love the difference between damon and stefan and how they both interact/treat elena when she’s with the other.
When she was in a non sired relationship with stefan, damon was stuck to her ass 24/7. He was creeping in her room without her knowledge, waiting for her, jumping in her bed despite her telling him to leave and that shes tired. He was trying to kiss her (sexually assault her), was harassing her about her feelings for him FORCING her to state something was going on between them when there wasn’t. Inserted himself into their own business regarding their relationship, trying to stir and make decisions for both of them. Pretty much followed her everywhere, and controlled her. And gave her and Stefan zero privacy and respect, even taking a font row seat to watch them in bed.
What has Stefan done while elena was in a sired relationship with damon? Kept his distance, didn’t harass her about their feelings for one another, didn’t make any passes at her and didn’t follow her around like a dog, and didn’t insert himself in delenas relationship. It’s called dignity and respect.
I’m not stefan/elena shipper, not damon/elena shipper either. But it seems to me that this is so fucking accurate, it hurts. And also, is one of the reasons why i can’t ship delena at all.
don’t you think you should give the pope a fucking chance? first HOW DO YOU KNOW HE IS HOMOPHOBIC OH MY GOD HE HASN’T BEEN POPE POR 4 HOURS ARE YOU ARE ALREADY ACCUSING HIM OF BEING A NAZI AND RACIST DO YOU KNOW THE REASON WHY HE CHOOSE HIS NAME? BECAUSE FRANCIS WAS A REALLY HUMBLE AND POOR PERSON…
I’m sorry but are you fucking kidding me? I could write a fucking book about the atrocities that this asshole did, starting with condoning genocide in Argentina and giving confession, asylum and communion to the worst dictators during argentina’s dictatorship and ending with calling homosexuals actual sons and daughters of Satan. And in between are all kinds of acts of despicable nature. So I’m sorry, people shouldn’t fucking calm down.
But while we’re at it, I have no idea what were people expecting really. This is the catholic church. A completely outdated institution with completely outdated notions of what faith and society should be and act. They are a corporation dressed up as an institution of Faith.
I really have no idea what was everybody expecting.
This is somehow WORSE than Greg Land. Somehow. I can’t place my finger on it, besides the overs sized, disgustingly out of proportion cleavage/tit job Emma has. The face is dog ugly…everything si just UGH fucking fire whoever approved this, AND the artist!
I’ve never liked what Emma wears. It’s always so revealing and she self proclaims that the best thing she does is be a teacher!! WTF what kind of school did she teach at before becoming an x-man!! Don’t get me started on the physics of it all and the way she flaunts herself. I’m quite glad the new x-men comics show her with less of a bust and dialled it down a bit because it was getting ridiculous.
She taught teenage mutants how to become Super Villains (see: The Massachusetts Institute). Before that she was the co-owner/fco-founder of a burlesque club for Rich Mutants (see: The Hellfire Club) that eventually turned into some kind of secret society (see: The Inner Circle) so that’s why she’s dressed like a fucking prostitute since the age of 16.
Frankly, I say the only people who should ever be allowed to draw her are Chris Clairmont (he DID create her after all), John Casady, Phil Noto and Leinil Yu. John actually made her have some class and style, her costume in most of the video games that have come out in the last decade (including Avengers Alliance) are based around his run on Astonishing X-Men with Joss Whedon. Which is really the best X-Title since before Bendis took over all the X-Men books. As much as i love him, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Jim Lee Emma Frost I liked. And I’m a HUGE Jim Lee fan. grew up reading his run on X-Men, it was the first comic I remember ever buying as a kid because of his awesome art, but i don’t I’ve ever seen him draw Emma.
Everyone else who draws her is bad at it. Especially Kaare Andrews & Greg Land. I can’t decide who’s worse among the two. But I think I’d have to go with Kaare Andrews in this case, because at least Land can draw faces (even if it IS the same Pam Anderson face for EVERY woman).
Seriously, why the fuck do Marvel hire these people if they can’t draw for shit? I’ve seen five year old’s with better artistic talent. Literal five year old’s.
First off, I understand that Emma is supposed to be sexual, that’s the character, you know? All her past and everything she’s been through, the core of her character is that she is the typical bad Dominatrix/Stripperific trying to go good trope. I’m not gonna get into her character specifically or if I understand or not why she is being a “strong female figure” to so many young mutants in the institute. That’s an issue for another day haha But, focusing on her image and personality, I get that you can’t simply forget that and make her be a good girl, that wouldn’t be Emma at all and I guess it would be an offence to writing her character. But still, she is supposed to have class, to be sophisticated she’s supposed to have seen the world and be a total and complete snob about it and what most pencilers do with that is make her their own version of Stripperella and I can’t understand that. Actually, I do understand it but it is fucking LAZY.
John Cassiday did a good job, as you say, and there’s also other artists like Granov, Bianchi, Bachalo or Finch that know how to find a perfect balance between the sexuality of Emma Frost and her sophistication. Sadly, for every Bachalo there’s one Andrews or fucking Greg Land.
So, having said that, let’s do a little update ‘cause I finally finished reading Xenogenesis;
“Ou, I’m just gonna stand here and talk to you about this radiation thing that is very important while standing like a Playboy playmate in the middle of a gig”. Bonus: Storm’s boobs are bigger than her head.
“I need to give this people the knowledge of the local language so we can all communicate with the villagers. I know! I’ll transfer that by kissing them, even though I don’t really need to and there is no need related to my powers what so ever” -ok, this one is on Ellis and not only on Andrews, but still.
I don’t even know…
I can’t even… this is not even Cyclops, man! This is Logan. Plus, what’s going on with those hips? they are the size of a fucking watermelon.
Oh, the poor man’s dying, but at least he’s got Emma boobs to give him comfort.
And this is not distracting, like, at all…
EXTRA: Don’t even know how to catalogue this. The outfit, the hips, the boobs, the poses, i don’t know.
REMIX: Bulldog faces!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS BABY??
