ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)
I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.
I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!
this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.
I CAN’T WAIT
So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway. Ask box is open, slam away.
When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people. By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.
Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it. A BLACK orphan?! Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.
Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.
Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).
The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.
Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.
Anonymous asked: why do you have a stretch mark?
They’re normal? When you gain/lose weight you get them? When your body grows from young body to adult body you get them?
this is like asking “why do you have skin”
Also I think they just sometimes…show up? I’ve had stretch marks on the inside of my thighs since I was at least six years old for no apparent reason.
Arcade Fire “Porno” Magazine Cover by Jade Purple Brown | Graphic Design
Ever since Arcade Fire dropped Reflektor this fall its been on repeat non stop. My favorite song off the album is Porno. The song explores male immaturity, female sexuality, and how males are portrayed in this day and age. The man in this song feels as if there is something wrong with him because he see’s the woman he desires as more than just a sexual object, she’s more than a “porno”. Wanting to experiment more with layout, I decided to make a mock magazine cover inspired by the song. The lyrics were used as a design element to make the magazine cover look like the real deal. I’m thinking about turning this concept into a series, but we’ll see.
Aberacathumba sent in this lovely submission! Here’s what she said:
"Every day is a challenge to tell myself I’m good enough just because I’m not a size 8, but I do it anyway!!! Finally plucked up the courage to send in a photo :’) "
So glad you shared! You look amazing!
