If Stuntmen from the old movies don’t have your full respect then I just don’t know what to say to you

Thing is, that isn’t even a stunt man, that’s a film star: Buster Keaton. He wrote and directed and starred in all his films as well as doing all his own stunt work. No CGI, no special effects: he did them all for real. And that last clip of him falling was a real accident that nearly killed him. But when he went back to work three days later he left it in the final film and simply shot a new scene where an awning breaks his fall.

The guy had balls so big he must have carried them around in a wheelbarrow.

If you’ve never seen a Buster Keaton film you are doing yourself a great disservice.

Edge and corner wear

Can we just talk about how this is the snazziest refrigerator I’ve ever laid eyes on? All the fridges you see now are boring white, black, or silver. This one has real style! What do we have to do to bring back colorfully patterned large kitchen appliances?

imagine Tonks and Lupin in bed, and he’s the little spoon and he turns round to kiss her only to find she’s metamorphasized her face into Snape’s and he screams and she laughs so hard she falls out the bed

When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.

This should be required learning, internationally. 

You need to know this. You need to remember this. This is not something to swept under the carpet nor be forgotten. 
Never. Too many have died for the way they have loved. That needs stop now. 
Make it stop? 

I did a report on this in my World History class my sophomore year of high school. It was incredibly unsettling.

My teacher shown the class this. Mostly everyone in the class felt uncomfortable. 

I have reblogged this in the past, but it is so ironic that it comes across my dash right now. I a currently working as a docent at my city’s Holocaust Education Center (( I say currently because I’ve also done research and translation for them )) and out current exhibit is one on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum ((USHMM)). This is a little known historical fact that Paragraph 175 was not repealed after the war and those convicted under Nazi laws as a danger to society because they were gay were not released because they had be convicted in a court of law. There was no liberation or justice for them as they weren’t considered criminals, or even victims for that matter. They were criminals who remained persecuted and ostracized and kept on the fringes of society for decades after the war had been won. Paragraph175 wasn’t actually repealed until 1994. And it was only in May 2002, that the German parliament completed legislation to pardon all homosexuals convicted under Paragraph175 during the Nazi era. History has forgotten about these men and women — please educate yourselves so this does not happen again. Remember this history. Remember them.

Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family

Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?

I can’t recall how it’s treated in the books, however it is my ardent hope that as everyone grows older, Molly starts to treat Harry more like her other sons. Can you imagine how included he would feel, for once not someone who gets singled out in either a negative or positive way? That’s all that every happens to Harry. He’s either demonized (first by the Dursleys and then by the Death Eaters/Voldemort) and gets all their ire, or he’s lauded as the Boy Who Lived and given an insane amount of leeway. But Molly would eventually see how alienating that would feel, and begin to readjust how she behaves towards him. Just one of the family. Just another wizard with a regular life. And then eventually he and Ginny would get married, and he’d hug Molly and whisper to her how happy he is to finally be a real part of the Weasley family and she’d just whisper back “Oh Harry, you’ve been my son for years.” Whoops now I’m going to write some fic.

Molly Weasley had had quite enough of this morning, thank you very much. The ghoul’s racket upstairs had reached unforgivable proportions, Arthur had deconstructed an entire “microwave oven” on their living room floor and was staring dejectedly at it as it failed to reveal its secrets, and the kitchen… the kitchen was an absolute wreck. Arnold the pygmy puff had somehow found its way into the flour and had decorated the floor with a light dusting. Errol laid on the cutting board amidst diced carrots and potatoes, emitting a sound that could only be referred to as “dire.” The pantry door refused to close, even when cajoled. Lastly, the entire morning’s worth of dishes were piled precariously in the sink, probably only held in place by a sticking charm.

And whose responsibility was it to wash those towering dishes? The children’s. And who had put them there and walked away? The children. And where were those children now? Oh, that’s right, they were out playing Quidditch, as if they hadn’t a care in the world!

She stalked over to the door and flung it wide open. “IF YOU LOT THINK YOU’LL BE GETTING AWAY WITH NOT ATTENDING TO THESE CHORES YOU’VE GOT A RUDE AWAKENING. GET OFF THOSE BROOMS AND INSIDE - NOW!”

Everyone descended and tossed their gear into the broom shed, bemoaning the task ahead. Harry brought up the rear of the line and watched the Weasleys disseminate throughout the kitchen, each picking up a task without even asking one another what to do. Standing in the doorway, Harry shifted from foot to foot, unsure of what to do with himself, but wanting to help.

Molly noticed immediately, and wasted no time.

"Harry, you’ll see the rest of these rapscallions marched through here without even knocking the dirt from their shoes. Be a dear and grab the dustpan from the pantry; you’ll need it to sweep up that mess and all the flour."

He let out a deep breath of relief, feeling comfortable with something as familiar as manual labor. And after he swept everything up and knocked it into the bin, Ron called out “Oi! Now help me over here with these stupid bowls - can’t get the charm right to make ‘em let go of one another…”

Molly smiled. He fit right in.

It’s been at least 5 years since I’ve written any HP fic, but I STILL GOT IT (if “it” is cheesy little one-offs).

Resolved to organize my Outlook inbox at work today, which I’d kind of been neglecting. Started with 250+ emails I had read, but not filed. Thus far, down to 136 (which includes the approximately 25 new emails I’ve received since this morning). This does not include the hundreds of other emails I’ve already filed since I started working. I’VE ONLY BEEN HERE A MONTH. It is this sort of inundation of information that really makes my anxiety go through the roof. And most of it isn’t stuff that I can just go “Oh, yeah, trash that.” It’s important, and I’ve got to learn where everything should be filed and who needs to be copied and what I’m responsible for and…

Deeeeeeep breaths. I can do this. I will not let this drive me crazy.

Also, did I ever tell tumblr I have a new job and a new apartment and such? Well, in case I hadn’t, now you know. You’re welcome, tumblr! It’s awesome but also very stressful.
