A look behind the scenes at Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre’s Hamlet, with Maxine Peake.
Ray: Bruges is a shithole.
Ken: Bruges *is* not a shithole.
"All these young girls getting themselves pregnant"
Wow, self impregnating teenage girls, these men should be afraid, we as woman are evolving at alarming rates.
Les amours imaginaires aka Heartbeats (2010) - (Dir. Xavier Dolan)
"It’s a very “shallow” film. These people are into a very conceptual love. There’s no depth - they are literally in love with themselves through the eyes of a beautiful man. And it would be great if he could love them. That’s basically what’s going on. They are choosing an impossible target so they won’t have to get involved in real things. They’re very romantic, but at some point the reason why there aren’t any crying scenes is because it’s a very banal love story. I saw no reason to have anything sincere. Basically what I was trying to tell people through this film is how shallow we can be in love.” Xavier Dolan
that calling women of color exotic is
- fucking racist
- and not a fucking compliment
really all you need to know about the american health care system is that there’s a popular tv series where a man turns to cooking industrial quantities of crystal meth in order to pay his hospital bills

So my school has this thing where we give offerings to our mascot, Testudo, during finals week because legend has it that he’s pretty lucky.
And it’s this pretty cool tradition. But now, well, I think it may be getting a little out of hand….
Did you really believe that?
#I love it because martha is all ‘you’re such a fucking idiot’ #and she laughs at the master #she laughs at the fucking psycho who has been destroying earth and who kept her family prisoners #she laughs at someone who could kill her any second #she makes him look like a moron #she takes the power away from him and she turns the tables (via iceinherheart-kissonherlips)
YES THIS IS WHY THIS IS MY FAVORITE MARTHA MOMENT
Also, two thoughts (neither of them new, but I never connected them before) just clicked in my head:
The first thing: Martha is in the Doctor’s role in this episode. Not just that she’s the one saving the day, but TO THE MASTER AS WELL. He puts all his energy into capturing her, defeating her, humiliating her, because he doesn’t want to admit he was ever afraid of her. The Doctor’s spent a year being boring and of no interest to him no matter how hard he prods. It’s incredibly telling that by the end of the year, he’s tormenting the Doctor to try and get at Martha through the people she loves, instead tormenting Martha to get at the Doctor. Martha is the Master’s true archenemy in LotTL, at least for the first three-quarters of it.
The second thing: Mind of Evil. The one thing the Master fears most in the universe is the Doctor laughing in his face.
And when Martha takes on the Doctor’s role, what does she do? THIS GIFSET, YOU GUYS.
my favorite part about this is that it’s so easy to get sucked into the plot of the gun in four parts like that’s just how you tell stories: a big complicated problem requires a big complicated solution all action movies are built on the premise that there can be no satisfying conclusion without some kind of journey without some kind of rigorous physical and mental tasks that come thiiiiis close to being fatal every time because action movies need a winner and it’s no ‘fun’ if that winner does so quietly so this whole episode we’re watching and absolutely buying the idea of the gun because that’s how climaxes are reached and then martha jones comes along and completely obliterates all of that martha jones is better than an action hero martha jones is a doctor (via itcameuponamidnightqueer)
#i loved rick so so much but i truly do not think that he was healthy for kieren #because he loved kieren but he couldn’t leave his father’s shadow #and kieren loved rick so that was okay for him #he was okay with just being rick’s secret because he loved rick and rick loved him and that was enough #and amy sees this and it angers her that this beautiful special person is allowing himself to be enamoured by a boy who won’t stand up for him #rick was an important and crucial part of kieren’s life #but he wasn’t healthy #and then my heart goes and breaks for rick who lost his life the moment he decided to change this (x)
