Tasting Flight

For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.

please listen to this and watch this gif it’s very important

I literally cannot believe someone added tag meta to this I’m really proud

Wait, but that’s not just ending up face down on the concrete - it looks to me like Bucky’s basically doing a shoulder roll? To get his weight back onto his hands and knees so he can dart in whatever direction he wants or needs…?

Hmmm. Must watch again. x)

But: “little soviet potato” kills me. ♥

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

THIS IS ALL SHADES OF PERFECT

I thought that was going to make me angry, but instead I gave a little cheer and reblogged this as fast as I could.

mickthethorpe said: Bane or Croc? (On everything, not just strength/size)

wouldyouliketoseemymask:

I would have said Bane IF I hadn’t just read Croc’s Joker Asylum issue. Croc escapes from Arkham Asylum by chewing his own hands off (gnarly!) and removing his cuffs. He almost dies from severe blood loss, but a couple find him and nurse him back to health on the condition that he help them work their way up Gotham’s criminal hierarchy. After Croc fully recovers, he makes good on his part of their bargain and acts as a muscle for the pair, and over time they even develop a familial bond.

Later on, the woman reveals that her husband has been beating her. Enraged, Croc violently kills the man—only to be shot by her lover. It turns out the abuse was a plan concocted by the woman to have all of the trio’s financial profits. Croc kills the woman and her lover, and when the police discover him sitting among the carnage he makes no attempt to flee.

It’s a very sad story, and proof that Croc is more than just a hulking “monster”. His three-issue arc in Arkham Unhinged also did a great job of illustrating his humanity, and by the end he has retreated from society to live in the sewers after enduring many tragedies at the hands of humans.

To build a city at the bottom of the sea! Insanity. But where else could we be free from the clutching hand of the Parasites? Where else could we build an economy that they would not try to control, a society that they would not try to destroy? It was not impossible to build Rapture at the bottom of the sea.

It was impossible to build it anywhere else

I can’t even hear what this dude’s saying but look at how ineffectually angry this bird is.

I’ve had days where I’ve wanted ti shriek like this at people too.
As a side note, I love that barn owls are used to often in art, and considered the most beautiful species, yet they make a noise like Satan’s chalkboard.
Majestic.

So much for owls saying hoot :U

"Are we ready, little one?"

*SCREECH OF MURDEROUS RAGE*

I’ve got nothing but love for folks who call angry, screeching predators ‘little one’.

"And he says, ‘Let me go or I’ll eat your face!’" Accurate.

I just bought my Wonder Woman comic and these were the last two pages. Wonder woman makes me extremely happy.

I think my favorite thing about this is that her nail game is so strong she can casually slice through rope with a thumbnail.
