One of the best moments of my childhood.
ZERO HAD ZERO FUCKS
I can’t even tell you how excited I was that they turned this book into a movie and it was good
I literally have absolutely no complaints with the movie at all. Once, my friend and I did comparisons from the book and the movie, and we found the only major difference was the fact that Stanley wasn’t heavy set when he arrived at the camp in the movie. The majority of the script is raw quotations from the book.
This is my favorite book to movie adaptation and it did everything Percy Jackson, Inkheart, and The Golden Compass didn’t.
yesss this was such a good book and film
And the only reason Stanely wasn’t heavy set was because in the book he loses tons of weight and eventually ends up being almost thin. The director said he didn’t want to force an adolescent boy to lose weight on such a quick filming schedule, and L’bouf’s audition was so spot on, that they decided to go with a thinner Stanely from the beginning

All of these are oh so painfully true.

Look, I made a gif of this most awesome wizard at the Leaky Cauldron!
DUDE IS READING ‘A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME’ BY STEPHEN HAWKING
I NEVER REALIZED
are you serious
I always assumed wizards just ignored science, because the fact that “magic” exists, can explain anything. But there are MuggleBorn wizards, ones who, until they were eleven, lived in the real world and learned science and things. Did they all just abandon that normal, muggle knowledge, like Harry did? It’s always been there, itching in the back of my mind.
FOUR FOR YOU SCIENCE WIZARD
YOU GO SCIENCE WIZARD
can we point out that he’s doing wandless magic too
like voldemort couldnt even do that shit
molly fuckin weasley couldnt fuckin do that

Plot Twist: He is able to do wandless magic because his comprehensive understanding of quantum physics means that he is the only wizard/witch to actually understand how magic works.
So I should probably stop unpacking, huh?
I’ve never understood the stereotype that women are more likely to faint at blood

I guess we have to come clean about the cult sacrafices too huh

Tuesday Tips - Life Drawing Exercise: All Straight Lines
Without proper instructions or guidelines, life drawing sessions can easily become boring and repetitive, with little to no progress in understanding the process. Once in a while, I try to apply some techniques learned along the way. This is one of them. The last time I applied the technique was through instructor Paul Wee at LAAFA. A great life drawing teacher from the world of animation.
It is as simple as it sounds. Only allow yourself to draw with straight lines. I know, I know, i dedicated an entire post to “No Straight Lines”. I mean “kinda straight” here. It’ll help you tremendously in finding angles and planes throughout the body. Curves and shading can easily muddle a drawing and make it too tentative. Lines and angles have a strong opinion about them. They are very definitive. Your confidence will only grow once you go back to “full” life drawing.
Just a reminder here; they are grabbing IP adresses.
This means they can find out where you live, or easily bypass any security on your computer or device and hack you.
Please, be safe. Pass this on so others know they may intend to do something with the IPs and be careful, if you think you’re being too careful, you’re not.
It’s not too far off to say your best safety measure is even to even leave tumblr/go on hiatus until this is done with.
(Blacked out most of the IP for security reasons.)
THEY ARE TAKING NAMES. THEY ARE TRYING TO GET YOUR IPS.
DONT DISMISS THIS SO QUICKLY. THEY ARE ACTIVELY ATTACKING US!!
Aren’t there supposed to moderators on 4chan or something? Either way, this is really starting to worry me.
Real talk here for a second. I work in computing professionally and it bothers me when I see these posts upsetting people, so I’d like to talk about it.
The majority of Tumblr users will have what is known as a ‘dynamic IP’, something given to them by the provider of their internet service. This is true regardless of where you are in the world. This will allow someone who has your IP address to use geolocation to find your internet service provider, but does NOT reveal your physical address or personal details. If you happen to live in the same city as your ISP and someone says “hey you live in such-and-such” and it is correct, it does NOT mean they know your actual address!
Some people make the conscious choice to have a ‘dedicated IP’, which is specifically assigned to you. This will NOT reveal your physical address or personal details either - these details are safeguarded by your internet service provider. If you do not know whether or not you have one, you probably do not. Ask the person responsible for your internet service at home or contact your internet service provider for more information about this if you’re concerned.
If you have a dedicated address (and for a limited time, it may be possible to use a dynamic address, but these change frequently), this can IN A VERY LIMITED SENSE be used to remotely probe the network you are connected to. A sophisticated and dedicated attacker MAY discover a way in but will then need to additionally find a way of accessing your computer - and your run-of-the-mill hacker is HIGHLY UNLIKELY to have the skills, software, time and dedication to do this on completely random people with little chance of securing anything of financial gain.
Let me re-iterate, someone having your IP address does NOT mean you have been compromised in some fundamental way and does NOT pose an immediate threat to you. It does in no way make it EASY for people to gain access to your computer, much less gain control of it or access any of your details stored on it.
This post is correct in advising caution, but know the facts before you decide to leave Tumblr, go on hiatus or make other decisions. Many websites on the internet are capable of collecting the IP address of their visitors for statistical purposes and it’s possible that is how these are being harvested - if they know your IP address, it does not automatically mean you are under threat.
I don’t have many followers, but I encourage who I do have to reblog this. I am also happy to take asks, anon or otherwise, to provide further information.

What if that *did* happen? What if they had invited her and the fairies had a rivalry based competition in their gifts? What if Aurora is almost burdened with the blessings she received and plays a part in the war between the factions later in her life? I NEED TO SEE THIS.
In medieval culture, an event like a royal christening is not a private party; it’s the public social event of the year. To not invite any person of rank to such an event is a deadly insult.
Maleficent is certainly someone you wouldn’t want at a party, but she’s also someone powerful enough that only a fool would ever dare treat her with such blatant disrespect. The only way the King and Queen could possibly have gotten away with not inviting Maleficent was to not invite any of the fairies at all; inviting the other fairies and excluding her is explicitly taking sides in the conflict between the fairy factions.
Which means they made themselves her sworn enemies, and she responded by treating them as such from then on. If you actually get into analyzing the social dynamics of the scene, it’s very clear that Maleficent was willing to show mercy at first by giving the King and Queen a chance to apologize for their disrespect to her. She doesn’t curse Aurora until after she gives them that chance and they throw it back in her face with further disrespect.
And yeah, if the King and Queen had done the properly respectful thing and invited her, Maleficent would have given Aurora a scary awesome present. Moreover so would the other fairies, because at that point both sides would be using it as an opportunity to show off and one-up each other. What they gave her before Maleficent showed up was basically just trivial party favors by fairy standards.
How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies
How don’t you
You know I grew up hearing a few good life lessons repeatedly my whole damn life and one of them was: If something happens to you *all* the time, it must be you.
What you see here is the classic self depreciating “nice guy” how dare a woman and her friends dress up all nice and go out to have fun with their friends without giving you, a complete stranger, any play. How dare women dress up and have a good time for themselves and not dress up and slink around for your enjoyment. “Its to feel fucking superior” Well I know its surprising, but chicks don’t always go out clubbing in the hopes of getting sexual action. Maybe they are not attracted to the opposite sex? But that doesn’t matter to you because you think that if you go up to a woman and ask her to dance like “a gentleman” then she is required to grind on you like there is no tomorrow.
valid reasons for a woman to dress up and go out but reject you:
1. She already has a partner, and just wants to have fun with her friends.
2. She just broke up with her partner and doesn’t want to meet anyone right now.
3. She’s lesbian, asexual, or otherwise not attracted to men.
4. She enjoys fucking random strangers, but not you.
5. She enjoys meeting new people, but you’re a total creep.
6. Literally anything else.
Plus, just think about the reasoning on display in that image. The fact that she spent a lot of money on her outfit and makeup establishes that she owes you something? That’s like arguing that an artist ought to pay you because you looked at her work. It’s Bizarro World logic. I’m not being hyperbolic there; that is literally how logic works on Bizarro World.
And let’s just talk about the cost there.
That make up and those clothes? They aren’t being worn just once.
They’re fucking clothes. Non of them bought those clothes JUST to go clubbing and turn down guys.
That make up will also be worn at school or work, in other combinations. Those clothes will be worn with other things. For other occasions.
That $150+ cost for those and makeup? It means nothing because she’s going to get more than one night’s use out of those.
They’re not dressing up to turn men down, they’re dressing up to look nice for themselves, to have fun with their friends. They’re gonna wear those clothes because they like them.
Remember this. It is important.

While we were sleeping, the police state came to America and made itself comfortable
Hi. Excuse me.
While I’m sure this has already been corrected in other posts, I’d like to say a few words.
These pictures are from when the Boston Marathon bomber was in a Watertown neighborhood. Specifically, mine. I took pictures identical to it out my bedroom window while this was happening. SWAT was there protecting us because there was a literal mass-murdered hiding in our neighborhood, equipped with bombs and other weapons. It was the most terrifying 24 hours of my life so far and while I don’t like to relive it, I did feel safer knowing the police and SWAT was doing everything they could to protect my neighbors, my friends and I.
The officers I spoke to were polite and unobtrusive. They even got groceries for some families who had small children while we were in lockdown. They were organized and professional. I am extremely grateful for their service.
These are NOT pictures of a police state.
Please do a little research before making a post like this.
