Remember.

his life was totally in danger.

^^^^

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

I’ve been staring at this for a long time and I keep getting angrier and just think about how great it would be if someone would have run up and smashed him in the face with a bat.

Oh hey, I was there! Not sitting down, but standing conveniently behind the cops. 

I’d like to add a few things:

  1. In the wake of the aftermath of this, Pike also recieved 8 months of paid time off
  2. Officer Pike used Red Band Spray (the Amazon comments are gold)
  3. He felt “threatened” because 300 kids with books ended up surrounding about 40 cops in riot gear.
  4. UCDPD just recieved an MRAPv (Mine Resistant Amubush Protected vehicle) through the governments 1033 Program

Still, I’m a proud alumni. Go Aggies!

Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel 

Speaking their lines vs the final product

Why is Vin Diesel looking down? Is he worried he’s gonna forget his line?

Vin Diesel asked the director his inspiration for every line he did and did multiple takes until he was satisfied. He also recorded the line over 1,000 times and also recorded his lines in Mandarin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish so they could use his real voice in those versions. He’s looking at his lines because Vin Diesel is a  dedicated  motherfucking professional

Vin Diesel made you fall in love with a character who said 4 words. The CGI brought his words to visual life, but they’d be meaningless without his amazing command of voice. 

Basically vin Diesel had the challenge of:
"OK, this is the message you’re trying to convey"
"Alright"
"But you can only ONLY say I am Groot”

Because every time Groot says “I am Groot” he means something and vin Diesel had to convey that message as best he could with only those 3 words through inflection, emphasis, and emotion.

So, there’s this girl. She’s tragically orphaned and richer than anyone on the planet. Every guy she meets falls in love with her, but in between torrid romances she rejects them all because she dedicated to what is Pure and Good. She has genius level intellect, Olympic-athelete level athletic ability and incredible good looks. She is consumed by terrible angst, but this only makes guys want her more. She has no superhuman abilities, yet she is more competent than her superhuman friends and defeats superhumans with ease. She has unshakably loyal friends and allies, despite the fact she treats them pretty badly. They fear and respect her, and defer to her orders. Everyone is obsessed with her, even her enemies are attracted to her. She can plan ahead for anything and she’s generally right with any conclusion she makes. People who defy her are inevitably wrong.

God, what a Mary Sue.

I just described Batman.

WILL AUTO-REBLOG FOREVER.

(via carnivaloftherandom)

I loathe the “Mary Sue” criticism. It’s so damaging to female characters in narratives because it can instantly invalidate any good aspects she may possess. Female characters are underrepresented and have been butchered to no end by male writers (in all forms of story-telling) that we need to instead work on fostering a culture that can recognize what’s done right and work on improving what’s wrong. Constructive criticism is good and necessary for improvement, but to so easily invalidate a character by saying “She’s a Mary Sue” is lazy and destructive to all female characters who must then meet a certain criteria to NOT be considered a Mary Sue.
