A super girly and peppy blonde girl who wears bright pink dresses and skirts everyday is best friends with a quiet goth girl who of course sports all black clothing and big lace up boots. Someone jokes and yells to them “Hey look, a fairy and a vampire!” The blonde turns around and flashes a fanged grin and says “She’s human actually.”
This has been done before, I’m sure.
Like the best works of fantasy, a journey with [Terry Pratchett’s] trolls, witches, and crusty night watchmen provokes inspection of our own world. But what other authors do with light allusions, Discworld does with a sledgehammer. And with light allusion too. Then it steals your wallet.
Sooo this happened today. It’s the Decade Dance at Alice’s school and they were allowed to dress up for it. We went with 70s Punk Rock. She’s gonna be blitzkrieg bopping it all over the place.
THIS IS S O CUUTE LOOK AT HER
not every conversation is a debate.
not every conversation is a discussion even.
a lot of conversations, especially those in safe places where people share private, intimate, closely guarded thoughts, are dialogues.
in a debate, you are trying to persuade.
in a discussion, you are trying to compromise.
in a dialogue, you are trying to listen.
it’s a subtle difference, but it’s an important one. please learn it.
A racist, a misogynist and a bigot enters a bar. The Bartender asks “What are you having today Mr Abbott?
IT ALL MAKES SO MUCH SENSE NOW

Tim Burton is secretly a dark wizard O.O
It’s a shame Harryhausen did not live to see this (he passed away just last May).
"In the last 20 years of my life, I’ve been using something unrecognizable. I’ve been acting for 20 years and I’ve gone unnoticed"
I left Doctor Who because I could not get along with the senior people. I left because of politics. I did not see eye-to-eye with them. I didn’t agree with the way things were being run. I didn’t like the culture that had grown up, around the series. So I left, I felt, over a principle.
I thought to remain, which would have made me a lot of money and given me huge visibility, the price I would have had to pay was to eat a lot of shit. I’m not being funny about that. I didn’t want to do that and it comes to the art of it, in a way. I feel that if you run your career and– we are vulnerable as actors and we are constantly humiliating ourselves auditioning. But if you allow that to go on, on a grand scale you will lose whatever it is about you and it will be present in your work.
If you allow your desire to be successful and visible and financially secure – if you allow that to make you throw shades on your parents, on your upbringing, then you’re knackered. You’ve got to keep something back, for yourself, because it’ll be present in your work. A purity or an idealism is essential or you’ll become– you’ve got to have standards, no matter how hard work that is. So it makes it a hard road, really.
You know, it’s easy to find a job when you’ve got no morals, you’ve got nothing to be compromised, you can go, ‘Yeah, yeah. That doesn’t matter. That director can bully that prop man and I won’t say anything about it’. But then when that director comes to you and says ‘I think you should play it like this’ you’ve surely got to go ‘How can I respect you, when you behave like that?’
So, that’s why I left. My face didn’t fit and I’m sure they were glad to see the back of me. The important thing is that I succeeded. It was a great part. I loved playing him. I loved connecting with that audience. Because I’ve always acted for adults and then suddenly you’re acting for children, who are far more tasteful; they will not be bullshitted. It’s either good, or it’s bad. They don’t schmooze at after-show parties, with cocktails.
Doesn’t look like a limerick to you? Try this:
A dozen, a gross, and a score
Plus three times the square root of four
Divided by seven
Plus five times eleven
Is nine squared and not a bit more.
THE FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCCCKKKKKKK
