Imperfect Words Inside a Perfect Song

Ask me anything   About Zoey   

Just a SoCal girl with everything and nothing to say all at once.
I love music, movies, books, theater, art, food, fashion, politics, history, good deeds, good people, the past, the present, and the future.

of course Jennifer cannot control if she wins or not but Jennifer is a recipient of white privilege and benefits from that privilege so much so that she can give a sub par performance in a sub par movie and be wrongfully recognized as this great talent which she is not. 

she’s a serviceable actress but there is no way in hell she should be a two-time golden globe winner and an academy award winning actress. 

Lupita gave one of the best on screen performances i’ve ever seen and i’ve watched a lot of movies and this girl has only just begun acting. 

She was robbed tonight. Pure and simple. And instead of focusing on poor Jennifer being blamed from something she can’t control we should be focusing on poor Lupita who can be damn near flawless in a movie and yet is not deemed good enough to be awarded for her efforts because of a system that is set up for her and others like her to fail.

“A woman should have every honorable motive to exertion which is enjoyed by man, to the full extent of her capacities and endowments. The case is too plain for argument. Nature has given woman the same powers, and subjected her to the same earth, breathes the same air, subsists on the same food, physical, moral, mental and spiritual. She has, therefore, an equal right with man, in all efforts to obtain and maintain a perfect existence.” - Frederick Douglass’ Paper, June 10, 1853.

I feel tumblr may be falling into a dean-gerous trap with their nauseating overuse of the word “sassy”

if you’re not familiar with the show, Yvette Nicole Brown has talked a lot about how amazing it is that she’s playing a black woman who isn’t “sassy” and how important that is to her. <3333333

The government shut down is so annoying because like

THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT IS LAW.

IT IS ALREADY LAW.

It was passed by Congress.

It was upheld by the Supreme Court.

IT IS LAW.

So like this desperate attempt by the Republicans to bypass democratic processes in order to stop the ACA by defunding it is disgusting and I hope that this backfires gloriously and the Republicans loose the House next year.

"You can’t just use addiction in the premise plot and have it go away. It’s not the flu, and you don’t get over it and then two years later get it again. It stays with you all the time. It’s a daily process."
Lucy Liu on drug addiction, a theme that will continue to echo throughout Elementary as a subtext to Sherlock’s life. (American Way, Sept 2013)

"I don’t believe in guilty pleasures. If you fucking like something, like it. That’s what’s wrong with our generation: that residual punk rock guilt, like, “You’re not supposed to like that. That’s not fucking cool.” Don’t fucking think it’s not cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” It is cool to like Britney Spears’ “Toxic”! Why the fuck not? Fuck you! That’s who I am, goddamn it! That whole guilty pleasure thing is full of fucking shit."

yeah snape had a horrible childhood but he also

uses various racial slurs, emotionally abuses child of childhood crush for having resemblance to said crush’s husband, ((is literally a friendzoned dudebro)), flushed remus’ career down the drain over personal resentment knowing fully well he’d been homeless, jobless, all alone, and knowing fully well remus would not get another job, 

abused his students ((remember the “i see no difference” to hermione when a slytherin cursed her teeth, something she was self-conscious about, instead of punishing the one who cursed her)), the students he was supposed to take care of, to the point where he was the worst fear of one of them 

the fact severus snape formed when neville longbottom was supposed to see his worst fear in the boggart says a lot tbh and i know it was supposed to be a funny moment haha silly neville but to me it says a lot that despite there being dementors and ghosts and massive fucking spiders, and having his parents tortured half to death and into madness, neville’s worst fear is one of his teachers
