[AGGRESSIVELY STILL DOES NOT WANT A ROMANCE BETWEEN CLARA AND THE DOCTOR]
The millennials are the people who’ve inherited the hangover from the baby boomers’ party: a warming planet, a dysfunctional global financial system that rewards the rich and screws the poor, a polarized political class that’s moved so far to the right that a centrist like Barack Obama can be described with a straight face as “a socialist.” Millennials may be “narcissistic, materialistic and addicted to technology,” as Stein alleges early in his article; they’re also drowning in college debt, slaves to an internship “system” that demands ever-increasing work for no pay, and entrants into a job market that’s replaced employment rights with the “flexibility” of never being able to afford health insurance.
[W]hen we launch in a territory the Bittorrent traffic drops as the Netflix traffic grows. So I think people do want a great experience and they want access – people are mostly honest. The best way to combat piracy isn’t legislatively or criminally but by giving good options. One of the side effects of growth of content is an expectation to have access to it. You can’t use the internet as a marketing vehicle and then not as a delivery vehicle.
Look, someone who gets it.
This this this!
What I download goes down dramatically as my access increases! I downloaded a lot of stuff when I was living in a rural area before Netflix started. Now that Netflix streaming is available, as well as Amazon Prime Instant, I download dramatically less. I live in an even more remote area now where video stores are nearly 30 miles away and Redbox is almost 20. The closest movie theater is a crappy 3 screen that barely shows what I want to see. Even PBS is impossible to get where I live, so most of what I do download is currently airing TV shows. And I know that my access compared to that in other parts of my state, much less the country, is great.
Both Jehan and Grantaire are Romantics, but of a different kind. Learned Jehan, with his wide interests, would probably be irritated at Grantaire’s attitude but I think he would be the first to notice how much of a care Grantaire puts to be seen as this non-believer.
Because Jenny Flint is made of awesome.
“Five cute boys, stuck in a van with nothing much to do, decide to reenact The Book of Mormon’s opening number, because why not? Says a commenter on Towleroad: “The line between Mormon missionaries, chorus boys, and gay porn is so thin sometimes…”
….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.
Hermione Granger also:
- punched Draco Malfoy in the nose for being an idiot
- purposefully performed a confundus charm on whatshsface WHILE HE WAS FLYING just so Ron would win (omfg that is so fucking dangerous)
- literally pulled a fucking Bourne Identity on her parents and managed to set them up in fucking Australia (jesus christ she literally made it so that she NEVER EXISTED wtf that’s so fucking 007)
- Convinced the Ministry of Magic to give her an incredibly dangerous and volatile device that allowed her to ALTER TIMELINES COMPLETELY (just because she was so smart, literally, that is the reason, her “potential”)
- Has enough basic survival skills and badass magic to literally disappear to the middle of nowhere and flourish AND figure out Voldemort’s plot with Harry
- Hermione also figures out not only what Voldemort’s plan is, but generally how to beat it, WAY BEFORE VOLDEMORT EVER DOES. Why? because she is just that much smarter and better at magic than everybody else
in conclusion: Voldemort wishes he could be as awesome as Hermione, that’s why he wants to kill her so bad.
Can we rehave this series with hermione as the protagonist.
Hermione Granger and “That Time I Used the Power of Research and Deductive Reasoning to Make Sure Harry Didn’t Die”
Hermione Granger and “That time I figured shit out and literally ended up petrified for the cause and it took my friends weeks to figure out that I had the research on me”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I Was a Time Lord”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I Realized I was Hot and Smart and Saved Harry’s Ass with Research. Again. All the Time. Really, He Would Have Died Without Me.”
Hermione Granger and “That time Harry was too emo to actually do shit so I did shit in his name because I am the power behind the throne clearly also PS fought evil deatheaters and won”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I told Harry about the Dangers of Copying off Somebody’s else’s work that wasn’t mine and OH LOOK I WAS RIGHT”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I let Harry Decide Where to Go and What To do and we ended up wandering the forests of dean for like 5 months before saving his ass at Hogwarts”
OH LOOK I WAS RIGHT
all of the above ^^
Look, ya’ll, I get it. You’re pissed. You’re upset that this man and this company purposefully alienate plus size people. You’re angry that they claim to cater to only the ‘popular’ kids. They perpetuate so much that is wrong with this world - so much that we fight against. We fight for body positivity. We fight for a world where fat is sexy. We fight for a world where you don’t need to be a certain way to be ‘cool.’ We fight for individuals being beautiful. We fight for equality across gender and race and class.
But, let me be clear. Posting pictures and reblogging pictures of the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch saying how ‘ugly’ he is and how ‘uncool’ he is - that is doing the same thing that he is doing to us. We have to be bigger than him. We have to want better than him. And where does better start? It starts with us. We have to do what is better. We have to donate all of our Abercrombie & Fitch clothes to the less fortunate. We have to stop shopping there. We have to educate those who do shop there on what the company stands far - and we can’t tell people that shopping there is wrong. We have to tell them these very straightforward facts and let others make their own decisions.
This kind of fear mongering and hate spreading - that does not make our body positive cause look positive. It perpetuates too many stereotypes of ‘feminazis’ and ‘angry feminists.’ Our angry and reblogging of hateful comments invalidates what we are trying to do.
I encourage all of my followers to stop doing this. I encourage all of you to stop spreading the hate that the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch is trying to spread. Hate can stop. And it stops with us.
We owe it to ourselves to be better than that.
Instead of doing this, donate A&F clothes! Maybe even buy them and then donate them, I don’t know. Let’s tear their fucking size-ist discriminatory ‘cool kid’ brand right out from under them. They can’t play exclusivity if we don’t play along, so fuck that. Fuck that SO MUCH.

CLARA, YOU ARE REALLY BAD AT STALLING/LYING

DON’T EVER ASK ANYONE IF YOU LOOK OKAY BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS LOOK FUCKING MAJESTIC. EVEN AT 5AM WHEN YOU GET UP TO PEE AND CATCH SIGHT OF YOURSELF IN THE BATHROOM MIRROR AND YOUR HAIR IS EVERYWHERE AND YOU’VE GOT PILLOW CREASES ON YOUR FACE, EVEN WHEN YOU’RE OUT AND YOUR TOP IS DIRTY AND DOESN’T MATCH YOUR PANTS, EVEN WHEN YOUR DRINK IS DOWN YOUR TOP AND YOUR MAKE UP ACROSS YOUR FACE.
100% FUCKING MAJESTIC
