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.
That being said, holy shit I’m so happy for Pete and Meagan, they must be completely over the moon right now and this is so amazing for them.
No but seriously the baby’s name is Saint Lazslo Wentz
Bronx Mowgli sounds so normal now…
Someone woke up my “Make Patrick Blush” post again and now I can’t see anything on my dash other than notes for that
Do you have a source to the make patrick blush live journal entry from 2005?
Yeah, I do!
When we first found his Livejournal, we pored over it to see if it was real because I really wanted to post that quote but not unless it was real (otherwise I would have tagged it as fic)
There’s a disclaimer on the profile about being fake, but after some discussion, we determined that the disclaimer must be untrue, and a way to cover Pete’s tracks. The reason we think this (and by we, I mean me and the friends who helped me look over it) is because these entries went on for over 5 years. 5 years of very detailed posts that we’ve confirmed match up with actual events. I posted the quote ages ago so I don’t remember all the evidence we found, but give it a read. Some of the posts you’d think “no way this isn’t a teenage girl faking” but then other posts seem exactly like Pete. So it’s up for you to decide whether it’s a real account or not but 5 years of stalking is a bit extensive.
also in my attempt to re-find that exact page, I uncovered this.
If you refuse to raise a male child in the future, you are the problem.
If you say “die cis scum” instead of making an effort for actual equality, you are the problem.
If you refuse to listen to a doctor, someone who has years of medical training, about your health situation because they are ‘fat shaming’ you, you are the problem.
If you choose to disrespect someone else due to the bullshit excuse of ‘priviledge’, you are the problem.
This post gives me life
What if Charlie Weasley is asexual? Like what if when his brothers were going through puberty and getting crushes on girls and just obsessing over them, Charlie was just like, “Guys. DRAGONS.”
J.K. Rowling confirms it here.
It’s scary that Disney has been creating villains that people actually support or defend like Hans, it’s like they’re getting too real. These are the real villains people are facing everyday, abusers who we think we can trust, or who even have supporters like they do in real life. Yeah, they’ve had Frollo and Gaston before, but never until recently did they have whole fan bases of people justifying their actions or claiming they really did love the protagonist. I’d imagine those are the types of things said about real life abusers. And people are terrified of Maleficent? Imagine living with a Mother Gothel!
My dad has been obsessed with Pete Wentz ever since he heard him say “We need to stop teaching kids to wait for things to get better and start teaching them to act and change things in order to better their situations, because it is unhealthy to completely rely on others for happiness. So kids, just remember that only you can make you happy.” at a concert.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING I’VE EVER SEEN
