I can’t wait to get my hands on this book! Basically this scientist was hired by the Nazis to find a cure for typhus. While he did find a vaccine for the disease, rather than give it to the Nazis, he sent them a weakened version while smuggling out the real vaccine to Jewish ghettos. He also sheltered many people in his lab (such as resistance fighters) by having them volunteer as feeders for the lice the used in experimentation. Science at its finest.

I don’t think you understand how much this episode fucked me over

I remember watching this for the first time and I just screamed at my screen. I was so angry and hurting over this that I just left the room to cry. I also remember watching it with my brother and I remember him just staring at the screen in shock, he even paused it so that he could process what had just happened. This is the one scene that really really really killed us emotionally. And this was about 8 years ago and to date, it still makes me want to rage. I hate this scene so fucking much.

I still can’t watch Brotherhood because of this. I want to see the whole show so I can’t skip this but I can’t watch this again ;_; Also Hughes. 

This episode also just seemed to come out of no where. You knew that they had messed up in a horrible way, but most of the time it was funny and charming. And then this. I just stared at my screen and couldn’t believe it. And that’s why it’s still one of my favorite shows. It’s fantastic and funny, but damn brutal at times. I still won’t rewatch this part tho. And Hughes :(

The Emperor’s New Groove - 2000

↳ Ah, how shall I do it? Oh, I know. I’ll turn him into a flea, a harmless, little flea, and then I’ll put that flea in a box, and then I’ll put that box inside of another box, and then I’ll mail that box to myself, and when it arrives…I’ll smash it with a hammer! It’s brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, I tell you! Genius, I say!

Still the best Disney movie.

This was quite a journey! I spent the better part of a day going back and forth with a guy that I was not entirely sure was for real at first, then I absolutely got fooled, and then I realized I got fooled. It was fun. The guy said some LEGITIMATELY funny stuff when he was “in character.” And it all ended in a way that I felt good about.

It’s pretty much all laid out in the screencaps, But let me elaborate here:

HEY YOUNG MEN! I know it seems like women complain a lot about how they are represented in media, including fiction, and how it seems like they want entertainment tailored specifically to them, and how they seem to want ALL of pop culture to be politically correct or feminist-ized or whatever it is you think they want, but really, what’s happening is that women are tired of seeing garbage women characters in most of our entertainment. And they’re wondering, Would it really be so much trouble to make more realized female characters? You could still have all your CGI and action and science fiction and drama and swords and stuff, but the female characters could be a little more fleshed out and interesting. And the entertainment would still be good and would, in fact, be better.

Guys, instead of  thinking, “Hey, not everything has to be politicized,” try thinking, “I wonder what it would be like for me if the situation were reversed, and how I’d feel if in the vast majority of the entertainment I consumed, the male characters were few and far between and then mostly used as talking props & plot devices. I wonder if I’d get kinda tired of that and occasionally I’d say something, even a little joke, just to ease the annoyance a little.”

Fellows. Listen to the women in your lives. Ask them questions. It will change your perspective for the better. Years ago, I got into a brief argument with two female friends of mine about a movie— it does not even matter which movie— that they viewed as sexist and I did not. I couldn;t even fathom how they could see it that way. I tried to argue that it was not sexist. In recounting our discussion to another party, it was pointed out to me that they might have a different viewpoint based on their life experiences, and that it was not for me to tell them that their interpretation was incorrect. And that I was probably getting defensive about it because if the movie was sexist, it followed that my liking it would make me appear sexist. And that’s when I realized that none of this was about me, and maybe I should shut up and listen and try to understand. And also to be more aware of things like this and develop not just my sympathy, but my empathy.

I will only ever be able to empathize so much with women, because my experience as a white male in America is vastly different from that of anyone who is not that. But I can relate to:

  • not being taken seriously
  • not being listened to
  • being dismissed
  • being condescended to
  • having something explained to me that I already understand

And I having had those experiences, I am now more inclined to TRY to understand where someone is coming from if they are telling me they are having a similar experience with our culture.

So guys: just try. You don’t even really have to dig that deep. Think about your own experiences as a person, then apply that to someone else. It gets easier the more you do it, and it makes your life better.

Anyway, I hear Dawn of The Planet of The Apes is pretty good! 

Got me too! But this is great and important.

I mean, the World Cup was great and all, but the best match in town this weekend has clearly been Paul F. Tompkins’ daylong interaction with a I assume troll, because otherwise UM! guy who is super upset that anyone might question the high art value of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Troll or no, this is glorious.

OH MY GOD this is the GREATEST thing I have ever read.

This is everything.

This is flat fucking amazing.

I love Paul F Tompkins!
