Say what you will about restrictions on sex and violence in films, censoring movies did have at least one positive effect: It meant that writers and directors had to work harder to keep the audience’s interest. This can be painfully obvious when it comes to female characters. Irene Adler, for example, was a complex, clever antagonist who outsmarted Sherlock Holmes in the 1891 story she appeared in. In the 2012 television adaptation, Irene has morphed into a one-dimensional seductress who first appears on screen in the nude and who flummoxes Sherlock with her boobies. And why not? A good chunk of the viewing audience is going to be satisfied with having a naked lady on the screen, so there’s no need to waste energy giving her a personality. “Your lines? Hell, I don’t know. Just make some grunting noises or something.”

remember when Stitch died?

Do you know what i appreciated the most about this scene? In most movies when someone dies the person left behind says pretty much the same thing. “Don’t leave ME. I need you.” But here Lilo keeps it all about Stitch and what he needed. She didn’t make it about herself.





This is a fantastic infographic!

Things to be careful about! I’d definitely recommend plant milks…

Glad I have never, ever liked milk ever in my entire life.


Nothing is more stressful than wanting to talk to someone, but not knowing what to say.

  1. You are stronger than you realise.
  2. You are crueller than you realise.
  3. The smallest words will break your heart.
  4. You will change. You’re not the same person you were three years ago. You’re not even the same person you were three minutes ago and that’s okay. Especially if you don’t like the person you were three minutes ago.
  5. People come and go. Some are cigarette breaks, others are forest fires.
  6. You won’t like your name until you hear someone say it in their sleep.
  7. You’ll forget your email password but ten years from now you’ll still remember the number of steps up to his flat.
  8. You don’t have to open the curtains if you don’t want to.
  9. Never stop yourself texting someone. If you love them at 4 a.m., tell them. If you still love them at 9.30 a.m., tell them again.
  10. Make sure you have a safe place. Whether it’s the kitchen floor or the Travel section of a bookshop, just make sure you have a safe place.
  11. You will be scared of all kinds of things, of spiders and clowns and eating alone, but your biggest fear will be that people will see you the way you see yourself.
  12. Sometimes, looking at someone will be like looking into the sun. Sometimes someone will look at you like you are the sun. Wait for it.
  13. You will learn how to sleep alone, how to avoid the cold corners but still fill a bed.
  14. Always be friends with the broken people. They know how to survive.
  15. You can love someone and hate them, all at once. You can miss them so much you ache but still ignore your phone when they call.
  16. You are good at something, whether it’s making someone laugh or remembering their birthday. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that these things don’t matter.
  17. You will always be hungry for love. Always. Even when someone is asleep next to you you’ll envy the pillow touching their cheek and the sheet hiding their skin.
  18. Loneliness is nothing to do with how many people are around you but how many of them understand you.
  19. People say I love you all the time. Even when they say, ‘Why didn’t you call me back?’ or ‘He’s an asshole.’ Make sure you’re listening.
  20. You will be okay.
  21. You will be okay.
21 things my father never told me (via motelstyles)
To all of you people out there who are afraid to express your feelings to the person you like: I advise you to go tell them. let them know how you feel. the worst thing that can happen is that your feelings won’t be reciprocated. then what? you can move on and know that you are brave and strong and have the guts that most people don’t have to express how you feel. this goes along with anything. if you miss someone, let them know. if you want to spend more time with someone, say it straight to their face. don’t keep those thoughts bottled up, left to eat away at your brain because they will. they will make you feel more alone than you have ever felt. One thing I’ve learned throughout my days of life is that communication is key. Everything is questionable and confusing until you communicate. Yes, it’s a risk and yes, it’s extremely scary to feel vulnerable by telling someone you care about them, but why should that be a bad thing? It’s not weak to show you care and it’s not the end of the world if you do get hurt. I feel like I have been brought up feeling like I’ve had to hide how I’ve felt, in fear of guys I’ve liked not feeling the same way. In reality, why should we all be playing this guessing game with the opposite sex when it could be so simple? life is way too short to leave words left unsaid. you will constantly keep guessing and never know what could have been if you simply do not try. something might end up working out so perfectly, if only you would have had the guts to say how you have been feeling. always remember that.
