The #Macbeth warning #broadway
This was my favorite thing.
no but the whole Macbeth thing is legit okay
my school was doing Pride and Prejudice last spring [I had some tiny little extra part, but that’s not important]. The girl playing Mrs. Bennet said “Macbeth” as a joke, which then was explained because seriously we’re high schoolers I was surprised even she knew about it we don’t just know random curse knowledge
the play was set back a week because Mr. Darcy got appendicitis, Elizabeth Bennet broke her right forearm, Mr. Bingley lost his voice, and Mrs. Bennet went head over handlebars on her bike all in the week of the play.
you don’t f*** with the Macbeth curse okay if Supernatural has taught me anything it’s not to f*** with curses
….omg can we have an episode of Supernatural about the Macbeth curse?
IT COULD BE THE MUSICAL EPISODE WE ALL WANT OMFG
once a guy said macbeth in our theater and then the entire set came falling down
several people got concussions
How the hell do they preform the play,
There are characters named Macbeth
You can say it but only in the context during the play.. No other time
Thank you for explaining.
(I’ve literally wondered about that for years)
Rebloging for truth, you don’t mess with this kind of shit.
Okay coat hangers, we need to talk. Your item descriptions are ridiculous. Seriously, “Montana Grape” “Lime” “Apricot”? It’s first thing in the morning and you’re making me hungry. And while we’re on the subject, what color is “Dew”? Clear? Some shade of gray? A vague clammy feeling that enters directly into the hind brain? What are you?
MEMO: The space bar is important.
how. IN THE FUCK. did that get through.
who was drunk and officially sent this advertisement out. who didn’t tell them something was wrong. who put up an inappropriately faulty billboard without anyone saying anything.
what monkeys were in charge of this operation.
You mean it’s not a subtle commentary on the Galaxy Note’s handwriting recognition capabilities?
I dunno, fingers are a lot more flexible and if they know what they’re doing…
I’m just going to put my brain in the corner preemptively.
Raw fleece: 3 days to wash and dry; about 2-3 years to hand-card the wool and spin on a Turkish drop-spindle; at least two 5-10 day sessions of natural dyeing; another 2 weeks skeining the wool; 7 months to knit the blanket; one afternoon to machine wash and “full” (shrinking process to make it more durable); 5 minute photo shoot; priceless.

Small note, I didn’t make this blanket.
"Lol but why don’t you sell your knitted stuff I’m sure someone would pay liek a hundred dollars or something if you marketed it right!" Ugh.
Gorgeous, gorgeous work on that blanket, I am drooling over here.
“The thing is, representation matters, and one of the worst things that this kind of narrative does is that it expects an LGBTQ audience to be satisfied with the bare minimum. When this bare minimum is not met with automatic praise and thanks, the audience is punished in any number of ways, from a producer’s social media snarkery to claims by the mainstream media that the darned homosexuals just aren’t grateful enough. Even the smallest amount of negative reaction is cited as reason enough to not bother with such a storyline in the future. It’s sort of like showing up to Thanksgiving having said you’d bring green bean casserole, except you brought a single green bean on a paper plate. Even though this will obviously not feed any of the other guests and barely counts as a green bean casserole, you sneer at those who are protesting, telling them that they never specified what a green bean casserole is and besides that, they’re being whiny babies. You wave the single limp green bean in the air and tell them that it’s obvious they’ll never be happy, that they’re complaining for the sake of complaining and it’s no wonder they don’t get to eat quality green bean casserole, because nobody wants to share green bean casserole with such an aggressive and unfriendly group. In other words, making a character gay only to immediately write them out of the show makes me feel like shoving a green bean up someone’s nose.”
excerpt from the piece i’m writing for autostraddle on why i’ve stopped recapping once upon a time, because they pulled some bullshit (via trashydyke)
This very eloquently explains why I stopped watching Once Upon A Time, and why I stop watching so many other shows/reading comics or books/etc. It’s disheartening, and it wears on you. It hurt me to my core that a show about true love was only for straight people.
And it makes me so angry when people come to me and they say WELL THIS ONE CHARACTER IS GAY SO WHY DID YOU STOP WATCHING IT. Because it’s not enough. Because it’s not fucking enough, and it never is, and it never will be.
A throwaway gay character isn’t enough. Sam Wilson and James Rhodes aren’t enough. Black Widow and Maria hill aren’t enough, and Scarlett Witch won’t fucking be enough. And I am SICK of people acting offended because I refuse to be satisfied with the barest minimum of representation. I am sick of one green bean, while everyone else gets to eat a casserole.
Y’know people say shit about social media along the lines of ‘OMG no one cares what anyone had for breakfast’ and like.
I do? I care. I’m pretty sure a lot of people care. I want to hear that the people I care about are having delicious breakfasts or saw something odd at work or flirted with a cute barista. Or just any little thoughts they have that they feel are worth sharing.
I’ve always kind of assumed that’s how you’re supposed to feel about your friends.
You are not going in circles
You are making progress in a spiral. You do come back around to where you were at the start, since recovery and healing take time, but every time you come back around to that point you’re a little higher up because you’ve got more experience, more knowledge, and more strength.
You ARE making progress
I really needed to read this!!
