wow that sure is the second time I’ve seen a picture of Thatcher for International Women’s Day
can we maybe
Also while we are on the subject!!! Wasn’t the cannibalism just super heavily implied last season rather than stated like “should have run faster!! El oh el” sort of thing I dont THINK I remember it getting further than that in terms of blatancy?
as opposed to him straight up chopping the shit out of a leg on screen
like the veil has come right the fuck off is what I am saying
- NBC's Hannibal Season 1: Yeah, there are some messed up scenes, but you can probably stomach all the blood, gore, and mutilation.
- NBC's Hannibal Season 2: You'll probably throw up.
during hannibal lecter’s trial they play an extremely long tape of all the godawful cannibal puns he’s ever made and let him prove his guilt by being the only one in the room who giggles.
The most important thing I learned, though, was that there is no such thing as “standard English” with a capital E. Instead there are many “englishes” with a lower case E. There is the english of the Caribbean and the english of the southern United States and the english of Oxbridge and the english rappers use in their music. Traditionally we’re taught that one of these is better than the rest, but in this class I learned that that’s an arbitrary distinction and not necessarily the case.
Why? Well, there are two schools of thought when it comes to how we should use language. One is “prescriptive” and it’s backed by grammar snobs and the kind of people who froth at the mouth over the decline of “the King’s English”. The other is “descriptive” and it’s more about accepting that how people use language is how language works. A prescriptivist believes in the idea of standard English and sees mistakes everywhere. A descriptivist sees many englishes, and none of them are standard.
[…] We’re all fluent in more than one english, for example the language of our peer group and the language of our parents’ generation. And then there are the two factors that have possibly the biggest impact on how we use language: education and socioeconomic status. When you judge people for what you consider to be poor grammar, you’re judging them for not being as good as you at something that might be a challenge because they didn’t have the advantages or experience you did. Maybe they haven’t had the luxury of worrying about their grammar. Maybe their use of language is right in line with their community. Maybe you’re just being a pedantic, prescriptivist jerk.
In case you didn’t see Pacific Rim, here’s what you missed.
my tribute to the best movie of the summer.
Japanese designer 2PM Works has started taking pre-orders for their new Utena & Anthy (of Revolutionary Girl Utena) inspired shoe designs! You can see more photos of both shoes here on their website.The shoes are in Japanese sizes up to the equivalent of a US Women’s size 7, and cost ￥17,640 (roughly $180 USD). They’re taking pre-orders now (in Japan, if you live elsewhere you’ll have to use a shopping service) and will be released November 18th.
oh crap, they don’t go up to my size :<
coolkidroland said: cross dressing is okay I’m just offended you like Eridan tbh. (p.s. don’t feel bad about people who aren’t comfortable in skirts we rock slacks p. hard.)
Well I mean keep in mind I like him in a way where I enjoy talking to people who hate him more than to people who also like him cos their opinions are closer tp mine, if he was a real person i might legit genuinely murder him but hes a fictional dickprince and therefore hilarious I JUDGE MYSELF PLENTY
I love it when they do the twirly thing, spinning around is fun and they make it even MORE fun :O slacks are also great its true. its a bit upsetting that theres so much shit attached to clothing that isnt purely personal aesthetic preference :c
