sarkastically:

Chirrut loses his sight when he is sixteen to a disease that chases its own tail across the expanse of the city until it burns out, but it does not go quickly. The healers tell him–only when he asks, only when he sits there mouth turned into a scowl and demands because he is not a child even if they are treating him like one, he will not break, he is an initiate of the temple of the Whills, he is strong enough for anything–the death toll, the slow and steady rise, which areas were hit the hardest. They tell him about the things the fever stole from people, other senses, the ability to walk, long term memories. Chirrut learns everything about it based on how it has ravaged NiJedha. He keeps it tucked inside so that he can remember it, recite it to himself when he begins to feel upset about the loss of his sight.

It is one thing. It is just one thing. And he can manage without it, he knows, but he still misses it. There are very many things in the universe that he would like to see again. There are very many things in the universe that he has never seen and never will now.

Steve looks different now. You don’t like it.

Well, you should say, you don’t – like is too strong a word, you don’t have a real preference, that would be – it’s unsettling. It’s disorienting. This is not what Steve is supposed to look like. You are very clear on that fact. Steve is supposed to be shorter than you, and – and – not. Like this. Words. Things. You have had a lot of alcohol. Possibly you should have had less alcohol.

“You look funny,” you tell him. “Have I told you that yet? You look funny.”

Steve’s lips twitch. Even his face looks funny. More – filled out. Something. It’s appalling. You don’t – you don’t approve of it.

“Not in so many words,” he says.

“You do,” you say. “You look very strange. I find it – objectionable.”

“I guess they should have consulted you first, huh,” he says.

“Damn right they should have,” you mutter. “Fuckers.”

“Bucky,” he mutters. “There are – there are women here.”

“Steve,” you say, “if you think these gals haven’t heard worse from a bunch of soldiers hanging around this pub all the time, you are even more naïve than I thought, and I’ve known you since you were ten.“

“That’s not the point,” he grumbles, and you grin at him, leaning over.

“Fuckers,” you whisper into his ear, and he turns pink and turns his pint glass in a circle just like he always used to, back home, when he was nervous in bars, which, when you went out, was usually the case.

Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.

But no, if you watch closely you’ll see she doesn’t even step on the last chair. That means she had to trust that fucker to lift her gently to the ground while he was spinning down onto that chair. That takes major guts. I’d be pissing myself and fearing a broken neck if I were in her place. Kudos to her. 

I can’t stop watching this. 

#I watched this for too long to not reblog

Whoa.

Okay so this is true, but a tiny part of a wider truth. 

Ginger Rogers was a FUCKING BADASS. Ignore for a sec the rampant sexism in Hollywood (they once bleached  her hair blonde in wardrobe without telling her beforehand), the fact that she fought her whole career against typecasting and stereotyping from fellow actors (Katharine Hepburn famously said of the Astaire/Rogers partnership “she gave him sex. He gave her class” ) for starting out in musicals, and went on to have a career lasting over fifty years, winning a Best Actress Oscar (Kitty Foyle, 1940). But… JUST focusing on the Astaire movies…

Not only did she dance “backwards” in high heels, the dances were a task in themselves. Astaire was an absolute perfectionist and choreographed for himself, so as a younger, less experienced dancer Rogers came in at a disadvantage and worked her ass off to match him. 

Then there’s the filming complications… these numbers were filmed in ONE TAKE. So one thing goes wrong and you have to start over. Maybe you make a mistake or maybe your dress flies up because…

Ginger had to contend with her wardrobe. Dancing in heels is the norm at this time, but dancing in a dress designed for cinema cameras… not so much. They were heavy, embellished, uncomfortable, restrictive and cumbersome and essentially a third member of the dance, strapped to the body of one partner.Not only did she have to dance and look good, she had to control the dress too!

Take this routine from Swing Time… (it gets going proper at 1:30ish)

This dress has weights, YES WEIGHTS, sewn in to the hem to make it fly out and create a visual effect. So it’s heavy, it hurts if it hits you, and your partner gets mad if it hits him. So you gotta control it. 

Well it turns out all these factors on this set, this particular day aren’t going so well. So you’re doing take after take, here’s no labour laws, so at 4am after 18 hours you’re still going, even though part of the routine requires you to spin up those curved stairs with no rail at high speed….

Okay so now back to those high heels. In Ginger’s autobiography she vividly remembers this night as the night she bled though her shoes. They did so many takes, her feet blistered, bled, and the white satin high heels she was wearing finished he night pink because they were literally full of blood. And still they keep shooting. She keeps dancing.

The take they use in the film is the last. Early hours. Bloody feet. And she spins, acts and bosses out until that last second. Because she was that professional, talented and bloody minded. This is the last set of spins… 

So I say once again. Ginger Rogers was a badass.

She did everything Fred Astaire did backwards, in high heels, wearing a 20 pound dress, exhausted, injured and standing in a pool of her own blood. And watching her perform, you would never know.

And there was never another Rogue One callsign ever – and when the Rogue Group flew the Rogue leader was always back and to the right of true lead position, because it was understood.  It was believed.  It was known.

Rogue One would always fly with their group, because the Force was with them.

Also marvel wants comic book shops to decorate with hydra symbols and the staff to wear hydra uniforms

I.shit.you.not.

Just…how….?

I don’t even know what to say.

@jewneto

My local comic shop is staffed by a black man and a gay woman so no, they won’t be dressing up as Hydra vermin to try and promote the garbage that the disgusting sub-human dog-fuckers who run Marvel Comics are trying to promote

Also, because they don’t give a shit about promoting Marvel’s piece of shit comics, especially their utterly worthless “Event” trash

Oh my god WHAT

Marvel apparently looked at the disgusting marketing campaign that piece of garbage “Man in the High Castle” show did and thought “Yeah that looks like a good idea” and just kind of

Didn’t notice the part where all normal people were disgusted and appalled by it

How fucking tone deaf do you have to be to run a promotional campaign encouraging people to dress up as fictional nazis in today’s political climate where white supremacists and real life nazis are in a resurgence and the country is divided.

Related? Yes. A good idea? FUCK NO..

Like

Actual real life Nazis are now making “Fan art” using Nazi Cap as a propaganda image

Marvel has a presence on social media, there is no way they are ignorant of this at this point

Their response?

“Hey everyone!

Dress up as nazis to promote our shitty event comic!”

Like

Sorry but there is no excuse for this bullshit…Marvel KNOWS how this is making actual real world people who had their families or people like them be victims of the horrors of Nazi germany feel…we’ve literally sent letters, tweets and messages TO MARVEL about this making it clear how horrible, offensive and disgusting this is

This isn’t just a mistake…this is Marvel NOT CARING

I’m beginning to wonder if there aren’t a few nazis inside Marvel itself…

One of their executives donated a million dollars to Trump’s campaign

So the answer to that question is yes

You know perhaps instead of aiming complaints at Marvel, we should be aiming them at Disney.

Something tells me they might care a bit more about their reputation being tarnished by this pro-Nazi bullshit, and they DO hold Marvel’s leash now…

There really needs to be an organized letter writing campaign to their parent company.

Voting with your dollars is good, but ineffective if they don’t understand why, explicitly, they’re losing money.

Remember: free speech means this shit can’t be suppressed by the government. Disney coming down on Marvel like a fucking hammer would be capitalism functioning as intended.

If Spencer et al want to publish their ugly garbage on AO3 instead, that would be just fine by me. I support trash fiction. I don’t support enabling white supremacy financially. They have a right publish, not to be compensated for it. Nobody owes them a nickel.

Give these fuckers what Milkfed Yakofuckerface got: the door hitting their asses on the way out with a terminated contract.

Yes, this!  Complaining to Marvel when their head is Ike Perlmutter, a vile old man who supports Trump, is worthless.  Write to DISNEY, include examples of the alt right, Nazis, KKK, etc., photoshopping Captain America into a Nazi, and tell them that this is not suitable to children and it needs to stop.

Also?  Boycott ANYTHING with Hydra Cap in it, on it, or whatever.  Boycotting Marvel as a whole hurts Squirrel Girl and Ms. Marvel and other books that are not part of this.  Tell Marvel that this is EXPLICITLY about Hydra Cap, and that the boycott will end when Tom Brevoort and Nick Spencer are fired.

This is a great idea - I’m looking up how to contact Disney right now!

Edited to add:

Boost the hell out of this.  Nazi propaganda has no place in a decent society.

Reblogging this for the following, to make it more accessible to those who can’t use the image:

Also: A clarification on my own above comment-

The transposition of Moldbread Yankeedoodle with Milkfed was a sneering pejorative likening him to a pampered veal calf prepared for conspicuous consumption, not to in any way link his unworthy and vile ass with the excellent indie comic brand founded by DeConnick, Fraction, and Zdarsky.

(I forgot that was the name of their label, tbh. That’s on me.)

“Dude Your Stories Have A Lot of Rape And Sexual Assault In Them.“ 

“I Guess Every Asian Actor In North America Was On Holiday For The Entirety Of The Filming Of Firefly Because There Sure Are A Lot Of Not Chinese People In This Chinese-American Culture.“ 

“Dude Your Stories Have A Lot of Rape And Sexual Assault In Them Reprise: Seriously Even Narratives Where Actual Physical Sexual Assault Is Absent Definitely Have This Sort of Undertone Its Creepy" 

“A Lot Of Stories End With Women Getting Punished For Having Sex  Part One: Season Two Of Buffy"

"A Lot Of Stories End With Women Getting Punished For Having Sex Part Seven: Lesbian Death In The Bedroom And You" 

"Why Does The Black Slayer Have That Accent Also Why Does She Die?" 

"The Origin Story Of The Slayers Is What Now? Reprise: Say That Again About Sierra’s Origin Story Cause I Don’t Think I Heard You Quite Right.” 

And of course, the hit classic, 

"You Know, When I First Watched This I Found It Empowering, But Looking Back That Was Just Because It Was All I Had: We Have To Go Begging For Scraps and That’s Why He’s Been Able To Seem So Progressive For So Long" 

Hit album, #1 on the charts

And a secret track: "Why Do You Think That the Only Good Plot Twist is Killing Off a Character?”

Oh, Oh, I wrote some tribute tracks:

“Why Do you Think Death is The Only Sacrifice People Are Capable Of?”

“Women’s Suffering Is Only Relevant In Relation to Men’s Pain”

“Asian Ladies are Evil, Too, Huh?”
