Hey tumblr, I do yet live. Busy busy busy, thus the long bouts of silence. If you don’t believe me, put it this way: I’ve been here nearly 48 hours and not only have I not touched my laptop, but I don’t even know the Wi-Fi name or password here yet.

Gotta be up in 3 hours to see Mom off and then back for a bit of shut eye before running errands with my sister.

Looking forward to tomorrow night. Supposed to meet up with a friend who’s up here for the summer and go catch Guardians of the Galaxy. Couldn’t get a hold of her today, which is worrisome, but worse come to worst, I’ll go watch it on my own no problem. I’ve waited too damn long for this movie to put it off for anything short of an emergency.

If you can avoid driving into/through New York and New Jersey, do yourself that favor. Tolls are ridiculous in both, but driving into New York is the worst. We are sitting here, waiting for traffic to move, with trucks everywhere and locals trying to slip in and out between. Like, no, stop. If you hit my car, I’ma need bail money tonight.

So we’re in Virginia. It’s been an on/off argument on whether we’re stopping for the night, but I think I’m winning cause we’re only about 7 hours away at this point.

Kit has been so good, despite the fact that she’s been forced to ensure the whole trip in her kennel, which barely lets her look out the window, with tons of stuff piled on top. I got her a beef patty earlier as a treat/bribe cause she wasn’t eating when we stopped and was barely drinking water.

Now we’re stopping for dinner. Gonna sit outside to allow Kit more time outside and see if she’ll eat and drink more. Then we’ll be off again, most likely only stopping if I’m wrong and we do in fact need to stop for gas one last time, or if we have to switch drivers.

Mom and I are on the road. Actually, we have been for some 5 hours now. We were slowed down by two accidents and a search for an elusive McDonald’s (that we found was an exit later than where we left the highway), so we’re only just about to pass Savannah.

I’m sort of chronicling the trip on Facebook, and I would here but I deleted the photos after they went up cause I forgot about y’all. Sorry.

If you have me on Facebook, though, you can see the few pics up so far! Like my packed to bursting car! And some scenery! And Mom and I!

And I guess if you DON’T have me on Facebook but would like to, you can shoot me an ask and I’ll give you my email. Otherwise, I’ll maybe come back sometime later today and post an update. :)

Tom Hiddleston Sent An Amazing Email To Director Joss Whedon After Reading ‘The Avengers’ Script For The First Time - Business Insider

……

According to “Joss Whedon: The Biography,” in stores August 1, Hiddleston, who plays antihero Loki in the film, wrote Whedon a heartfelt email after reading Whedon’s draft for the first time.

We’ve published Hiddleston’s letter in full along with Whedon’s response with permission from Chicago Review Press below.

Joss,

I am so excited I can hardly speak.

The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the chocolate in the wrapper of a Wonka Bar. I didn’t know where to start. Like a classic actor I jumped in looking for LOKI on every page, jumping back and forth, reading words in no particular order, utterances imprinting themselves like flash-cuts of newspaper headlines in my mind: “real menace”; “field of obeisance”; “discontented, nothing is enough”; “his smile is nothing but a glimpse of his skull“; “Puny god” …

… Thank you for writing me my Hans Gruber. But a Hans Gruber with super-magic powers. As played by James Mason … It’s high operatic villainy alongside detached throwaway tongue-in-cheek; plus the “real menace” and his closely guarded suitcase of pain. It’s grand and epic and majestic and poetic and lyrical and wicked and rich and badass and might possibly be the most gloriously fun part I’ve ever stared down the barrel of playing. It is just so juicy

I love how throughout you continue to put Loki on some kind of pedestal of regal magnificence and then consistently tear him down. He gets battered, punched, blasted, side-swiped, roared at, sent tumbling on his back, and every time he gets back up smiling, wickedly, never for a second losing his eloquence, style, wit, self-aggrandisement or grandeur, and you never send him up or deny him his real intelligence…. That he loves to make an entrance; that he has a taste for the grand gesture, the big speech, the spectacle. I might be biased, but I do feel as though you have written me the coolest part.

… But really I’m just sending you a transatlantic shout-out and first-bump, things that traditionally British actors probably don’t do. It’s epic.

Whedon wrote back with a simplistic response:

Tom, this is one of those emails you keep forever. Thanks so much. It’s more articulate (and possibly longer) than the script. I couldn’t be more pleased at your reaction, but I’ll also tell you I’m still working on it … Thank you again. I’m so glad you’re pleased. Absurd fun to ensue.

Best, (including uncharacteristic fist bump), joss.

To anyone who is still confused

holyshitspn:

50 Shades of Grey is a book about romanticized abuse. It is not a depiction of any healthy relationship, BDSM or otherwise. It glorifies and romanticizes a rich and powerful man sexually assaulting a woman. It is not cute, it is not fun, and it sure as shit is not romantic. Please do not be fooled. This book is not what BDSM is about, and it is not what a romantic relationship should look like. 
Sincerely,
Lilykep

Finally got around to buying mine and my godbrother’s Warped Tour tickets. Two more days! I want a hat, though, trucker or baseball, and I’m having a hard time finding something. Gonna have to get one there, I think. Kinda didn’t want to buy anything but water if I could help it but ah well.

amoneyhoney, I’m assuming you’re gonna be there the whole time too, yes? What time are you planning on getting there?

Project for my Social Psych class last semester. This poster series was created to 1) challenge these internalized stereotypes by bringing them to the viewer’s attention and 2) expand the range of role models by including a diverse group of women. Each poster follows the same basic pattern: a woman who has demonstrated her competency in a particular area refutes the stereotype that appears above her in the form of “Girls can’t …”. While the posters target girls ranging from children to young adults, I expect the message would also cause people outside that demographic to question their own beliefs about women and power.  I designed each aspect of the posters with several principles of social psychology in mind:

What compels someone to put autoplay music on their blog? Everyone knows that everyone hates it but some people do it anyway, why?

Some people want to watch the world burn.
