( Here you will find Fatman X. Jones and his various musings on life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, fast cars, mechanical women, poignant moments of self-doubt and recovering resolve, love of fast food joints, Minecraft, an almost fanatical devotion to the fandoms he's a part of, and lots of orange-on-brown. )
THE most underrated scene in the entire movie. It was perfect. And do you know how often I see gif sets of it? This is the second one I’ve seen since the movie came out (It’s been over 5 months, now).
So let’s just pause for a moment from reblogging gifs of Tony’s sass, Loki’s sex appeal, or Bruce’s fluffiness and just appreciate this nameless, old, German guy and how, even though he knew he would probably die, he stood up to a tyrant to prove that the human race wouldn’t give up their freedom so easily.
Friendly reminder that it’s implied that he’s a Holocaust survivor.
Given how stories have been developing from both TPP events, I was thinking of what their themes are. This thought came to mind from the comparisons drawn from the two and some of the differences that have developed.
Red: It felt to me that the theme of red was Self Discovery….
Fuck ALL OF YOU WHO HATE ON LAZERGATOR. FUCK you. Feraligatr are fucking wonderful and you should feel bad for hating on them. He’s just trying to make you happy!
And absolutely nothing was learned from this experience.
I’m not sure where, but I saw someone make a fantastic fanart of Hawaiian Shadow with a surfboard named Maria. After laughing tremendously for some time, I got enough volition to create…..this origin story for Hawaiian Shadow based on that.
Feel free to feel horrible for laughing at this as I did.

Please, for the love of Durandal, tell me that people don’t actually believe this in real life.
This is not the kind of language one gives if they want equality between people; this is a barrier, an impassable obstacle erected by the paranoid and the jaded. This is not the way you give credibility to your position; it is a way you dismantle it wholly, without remorse. This is not written in the efforts of understanding one another, in the efforts of building tolerance towards others’ lifestyles; it is written in the efforts of hatred and vilification.
I feel a bit sick to my stomach. I think I might go lay down for a while.
Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.
I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.
Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.
What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.
Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.
