Seriously though I love you guys.
(help I can’t stop laughing what is wrong with me what is my face even doing)
I am gone.
oh my god chickens
Cheech and Chong share the funniest clean joke they know.
Aww. Well, they tried!

EAT ALL THE MASHED POTATOES
THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people. —madlori
Modeled on this post. This quote needed a gifset that featured a more diverse group women. Because my takeaway from Lori’s marvelous answer (seriously, go read all of it) is that representation fucking matters and that great female characters do not—and should not—fit into the same cookie cutter mold. Because actual women are not one size fits all. And the irony of having that message cross my dash repeatedly with exclusively young, white, straight, cis women who match a prescriptive definition of beauty was getting to me.
I love these things. c:

onetwofffff for Vyk.
Edit2: Annnnd one for Al.
So, Babylon 5 is almost 20 years old. The show’s computer-generated scenes don’t hold up at *all* in the face of years and years of advances in the field of photorealistic 3D graphics, but its stories are timeless.
The opening themes of all five of its seasons still give me crazy goosebumps, especially the fifth season’s for some reason.
I’m still trying to get Al to watch the fifth season with me (it’s worth it for the Londo stuff at the very least).
I recently found out the real reason why Michael O’Hare left B5 and I feel so bad for the man. (JMS revealed this about a year ago and I somehow missed it.)
For that matter, it’s heartbreaking that so many of the show’s actors have passed away.
This show. I love this show so much even now.
Sometimes I think back on That One Particular Ex-Boyfriend of mine and realize that some of the things he said back then would basically peg him nowadays as a men’s rights activist and a furry.
And it kind of makes me laugh now, reduces a lot of the massive respect I had for him…and, well, makes me miss him a bit less.
All of which I suppose are good things, considering how long ago the relationship ended.
I want to take Reddit and Tumblr and throw them both into a huge Thunderdome-style cage and watch to see who wins.
(The truth here is that no matter who wins, we all lose.)
