i finished watching young justice and now i’m really upset
are you mad that I don’t have to drink a gallon of water after eating a snack size bag of hot Cheetos
Wow, anon, you have managed to both infuriate and baffle me at the same time, which is pretty amazing.
Are you fucking kidding me? It’s not okay at all! It’s cultural appropriation!
Hinduism is not a decorative theme for your wedding! My religion and my culture are not costumes you get to put on for one day and then discard because you think they’re pretty and your wedding pictures will look great with all the pretty colors and sparkly outfits. Every ceremony has significance, history, and tradition behind it.
A Hindu wedding ceremony culminates in you committing yourself to your partner for seven lifetimes. If you or your partner don’t believe in that, you have no business going through it.
And if you want a pretty Hindu wedding, well you better be ready to take everything else that goes along with being Hindu, which includes being asked why you think cows are sacred, why you don’t eat beef if you don’t, why your gods look so weird, if your mother has that dot on her forehead, why you smell like curry, and all those wonderful little things.
Also, let’s deconstruct the second part of your question. “many people who arent catholic go for christian weddings”.
You’re right, and you’re also very wrong.
First of all, Catholicism is not the only kind of Christianity there is. There is also Greek Orthodox Christianity and of course all the different Protestant branches. Also, Catholic traditions in parts of Asia differ from the way it’s practiced in Europe as well.
So yes, there are many folks who aren’t Catholic who have Christian weddings. Because they are Christian, but they’re not Catholic.
And yes, some people have Christian weddings who aren’t Christian. But it’s because their partner is Christian.
Correct me if I’m wrong, Christian friends, but as far as I know, no priest (is it a pastor if you’re Protestant? idk this, Christian friends please clarify) will marry a couple in a Christian ceremony unless at least one of the parties is actually a practicing Christian. Because that’s disrespecting the religion.
A Christian marriage ceremony is not the same as getting married by a justice of the peace in a church, because there’s no religious significance attached to that- that’s a civil ceremony. Don’t get confused.
Sure, people are free to do whatever they want, but I’m also free to think they’re culturally appropriative assholes if they decide to choose my religion as a decorative theme, so yeah.
Successful first day of work!! I’m so sleepy, so I might have to start drinking coffee again. But yay! Weekly paychecks!!
i still can’t get over the fact that lucy is about ‘crime-ridden taiwan’ when taiwan has the most chill, laidback people i have ever met in my goddamn LIFE (and i have met a SHITTON of people) with violent crime rates so low american police officers boggle when they speak to taiwanese law enforcement
white feminists trying to justify the movie all “WEH WEH IT’S A STEPPING STONE IT’S SO RARE FOR WOMEN TO HAVE A LEAD ROLE YOU CAN’T HAVE BOTH FEMINISM AND REPRESENTATION WOC SHOULD JUST BE GLAD THERE’S A WOMAN ON SCREEN” how about go fuck yourself
I GOT A JOB!!!
After months of applying and never hearing back, I finally have a job near my house that I think I can handle! I start tomorrow morning and I’ve just packed all my stuff to be ready to go. I’m nervous because it’s a new thing but I’m also very happy & excited that I will be getting paid for full-time work! Having money in my bank account to pay for bills will be such a relief, and I’ll be able to help my dad out with other stuff around the house.
I just…thank You, God! I’ve been struggling for the past few years with my anxiety and PTSD from my car accident. But now I feel ready and it’s all baby steps. The fact that the job is so close to home definitely helps, and it’s familiar roads, too. It’s a huge blessing.
Oh Captain, Which Captain?
Title: The Winter Soldier
Album: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
[…]Winter Soldier is this crazy, dark, RoboCop-type figure who is somewhat human but mechanised, completely messed up. Slightly human but completely tortured and completely manipulated, but crucially mechanised. So I said you know what, I’m gonna do something completely crazy and dark for the Winter Soldier, and I’m just gonna go for it. I hadn’t worked with these directors before, and away from picture I just wrote a suite for the Winter Soldier that was about six or seven minutes long that I spent ages on and treated it like a record. The idea being that if I get this vibe right, if I nail this six or seven minute thing which I think is the essence of the character and it’s super radical and it’s not that traditional and not completely orchestral because I want to save some of that for Captain America, let’s just see what these guys say. I played it for them really loud, and after they were finished there was a bit of a silence, and then Joe [Russo] went “I love it! Awesome!”- Henry Jackman on theme music he composed for the Winter Soldier character
(Warning: the track is indeed weird and creepy and unsettling
and so totally fucking awesome)
the winter soldier: character review
i’m going to change up the format for this considering the fact that if i did a ‘good bad ugly’ for this film it’ll literally be a 3000 word essay under good, and three lines under the other two sections. for ease of reading, THIS IS JUST A REVIEW OF THE CHARACTERS, THOUGHTS ON DEVELOPMENT, ETC. the other accompanying review to this one will be (probably mostly negative, with my issues about the movie) on the technical and thematic stuff, coming… not long after this one.
just to preface this, i have to say that this movie ABSOLUTELY lived up to its hype, and far surpassed any of the other films so far (save for im3, just saying). i know i KNOW reviews tend to exaggerate and distort, and i had tried to lower my expectations going in and failed - even so, there were moments in this film that took my breath. character and plot wise this was the most consistent and crafted of any of the mcu so far. thematically, i have some issues, but we’ll get to that. overall rating: 4.5 out of 5.
