Donald Glover talking about the comments he received during his campaign to be the next Spider-Man (x)“I was talking about it with Dan Eckman, who directed my Bonfire video. Can you imagine that trailer? That would be dope. Like it makes sense… a poor black kid in Queens. Like it just fits.”
remember when baby spice sang about wearing a condom
remember when it took me over a decade to realize what she was singing about
That’s so weird seeing this on my dash, I was JUST thinking about this yesterday!
I got into Spice Girls when they were already very unpopular to be a fan of (about the time they started breaking up) and so I had to be secretive about my uncool love of them because I was already very unpopular in school. I found a discarded magazine in the locker room that had an article about this lyric on it and I was like “WHOOOAH HOW RAUNCHY!” and I wanted to share the revelation with my friends, but then I remembered I didn’t have friends and I definitely never would if I told anyone I cared about Spice Girls
[ Compare/Contrast: Perfect Blue (1997, dir. Satoshi Kon) and Black Swan (2010, dir. Darren Aronofsky) ]
A young woman on the brink of stardom struggles to assert her adult identity and sexual autonomy while being stalked by a murderous doppelgänger.
you realize aronofsky bought the rights to perfect blue years ago to let him copy/pay homage to a scene in requiem for a dream (the bathtub one, specifically), then made black swan using essentially the same story with only a few details changed (the occupation of the main character, the setting, etc.) and copying multiple scenes, sometimes exactly, and then went on to say he took no inspiration or ideas or scenes from perfect blue and was not influenced by it at all, despite owning the rights to it,having previously done so (which was why he bought the rights in the first place), and the year 2010 being the year black swan came out as well as the death of satoshi kon, perfect blue’s director.
tl;dr FUCK aronofsky.
wow what a fucking assbag
i didnt know this, but this makes me really angry because barely anyone knows Perfect Blue but everyone has heard of black swan.
I’m sick of trying to make Tumblr gifsets work, so I’m doing this the lazy way. Peppermint, Licorice, and Cocoa attemting to share their flying saucer:
“You Can’t Be a Princess” | Journalists from ABC’s “What Would You Do?” planted hidden cameras in a Halloween store and filmed shoppers’ reactions to a boy who wanted a princess costume and a girl who wanted a Spider-man costume.
Riley is not impressed. Honestly. Stop it now.
So much love for that last lady.
The video made me cry so much. I wasn’t expecting that punch in the gut, I guess it was a little too close to home. Bless the lady at the end who stood up for the kids.
