Don’t hurt people if you can avoid it. Don’t steal stuff unless you’re starving or it’s really really important. Work hard. Pay your bills. Try to help others. Always double-check your math if there are explosives involved. If you screwed it up, you need to see it gets fixed. And don’t eat anything that talks. If it doesn’t fall into one of those categories, just do the best you can.
How do you find calm in a chaotic world?
…Ellen Page is me and I am Ellen Page apparently.
I adore Dolly Parton. She’s the quintessential American success story, she’s developed a public persona that lets her get away with anything. She can’t be embarrassed or demeaned because she’s the first to laugh at herself. She parlayed decades of success in music (writing and performing), TV, and movies into major philanthropic efforts. You want to look at Lady Gaga or Madonna as flamboyant, confident pop stars who controlled their packaging and careers? Women who used their music to try to change the world one radio at a time or one dance floor at a time? Also look to Dolly whose inclusive stances are taken for granted. She’s easily dismissed as a walking caricature until you look at her portfolio and realize she’s an honest-to-God legend.
Put her on the $20. Assign her to the United Nations. Make her the first Cabinet Secretary for the Department of Y’All Come On In.
I think my favorite thing about the extended universe books is that they retconned the ‘twelve parsecs’ thing by having the Kessel Run involve flying past a network of black holes. The shorter the trip, the closer to the black holes you flew.
So basically Han is saying he’s extra fucking crazy, here.
Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are anger and courage; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.
Jason Jones talks to a Russian woman protesting against Russia’s anti-gay laws.
Team First: We are team USA. We are team first.
I’m a witch woman; high on tobacco and holy water. I’m a woman delighted with her disasters. They give me something to do. A profession of sorts. I have the magic of words.
parker, you have parker? is there somebody better? no, but parker is insane.
What is significant about fan fiction is that it often spins the kind of stories that showrunners wouldn’t think to tell, because fanficcers often come from a different demographic. The discomfort seems to be not that the shows are being reinterpreted by fans, but that they are being reinterpreted by the wrong sorts of fans - women, people of colour, queer kids, horny teenagers, people who are not professional writers, people who actually care about continuity (sorry). The proper way for cultural mythmaking to progress, it is implied, is for privileged men to recreate the works of privileged men from previous generations whilst everyone else listens quietly.
