the meantime

dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

n. the moment of realization that your quintessential self isn’t going to show up, which forces the role to fall upon the understudy, the humble kid for whom nothing is easy, who has spent years mouthing their lines in the wings before stumbling out into the glare of your life, which by then is already well into its second act.

You’ll be the bell of the ball in these corpse-like Cabbage Patch Kids necklaces. It’s the best way to say, “Not only am I suspended in my childhood, but my childhood was a terrifying wasteland of despair, to the point where these doll faces look normal to me.”

Okay people, are you ready to freak out about this?
Abi Morgan, brilliant brilliant writer of The Hour has written this movie called Suffragette, about the early steps of feminist movement, that will feature an abundance of badass female characters fighting against oppression. No seriously, take a look at the official synopsis:

SUFFRAGETTE is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality – their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. MAUD was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational. [x]

And no, I’m not done here. Lo and behold: the cast.

Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham-Carter, Meryl Streep (yes you heard me), Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben fucking Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson and Samuel West.

Oh, and yeah, it will also be directed by a woman, Sarah Gavron, who’s known for Brick Lane.

I’m generally careful with advanced praise but DO YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF FEMALE CAST AND CREW KICKING ASS.

Also those of you who haven’t seen The Hour yet, do. Because this woman knows how to write her female characters (and, coincidentally, her male ones as well. What a surprise.).

I’ll be in my corner waiting for early next year (which is when they said they’d release it, but there’s no actual date set so far).

And then there’s Maud.
Thank you and goodnight!

I was looking at someone’s reblog of a bunch of cute dog photos and all of a sudden I remembered that when going to Blockbuster to rent a movie with my family as a teenager, I would always try to work my way over to the DVD of this movie Shiloh (which I have never seen) because it has a really cute photo of a beagle on it. And I would stare at the photo for as long as possible, because that dog is super cute. It’s a super cute dog, yo. It was so fucking cute that I was embarrassed by wanting to look at it as much as I wanted to look at it. So I would always, ALWAYS try to make walking over to it seem as casual and unintentional as possible. And while standing in front of it, I would pretend I was looking at other things as well, but really I was 100% there to look at that Shiloh cover with that cute dog. And I would stay there for as long as possible until it seemed like I was pushing it. As though any second a member of my family would notice I had ulterior motives for standing there. Or be like, “Why does Lindsay always want to rent an S movie?” Or a customer would shout out, “Where is the manager of this establishment?! There is a teen staring at this DVD for longer than is socially acceptable!”
I wish I could go back in time and tell teenaged Lindsay that she is worrying about things to an insane degree. And that in like 15 years time, Blockbuster won’t exist and all we’ll do is stare at cute animals on our technological marvels all day long. You weren’t alone, teen Lindsay! Everyone loves photos of cute dogs! It’ll be okay, you sad little weirdo.
And you know what? In looking at this poster now, I’m like, “Eh, I’ve seen cuter.” And that actually makes me kind of sad. It’s like hearing a piece of music that used to make me cry, but now I feel nothing. I take it back, teen Lindsay. It’s not going to be okay You’re going to grow up to be dead inside. Not even a small beagle can make you feel. You’ll need beagle puppies just to feel something. And then who knows how long that will last? Soon you’ll need ten beagle puppies in an Easter basket dressed like bunnies or some shit. Soon not even a beagle fetus will make you feel alive. Welcome to adulthood, asshole. Beagles mean nothing to you now! Go pay bills and cook dinner now, you shell of a person. Teen Lindsay would be ashamed of you. She used to risk her life just to look at this beagle and now you can access all manner of cute animals and you’re not even grateful. They’re just lost on you. You didn’t even remember who you used to be until now. You make me sick.
This post started out fairly normal. I don’t know what just happened.

This is the single best Ask Amy response I’ve ever read

i love it when people who do shit things write in asks to validate their shittiness and it backfires. It feeds me

"Perhaps this is something you could ponder from your church pew."
