What do you mean? You did some things with Tao and I did some things with Alicia, but we can put all that in the past Baby, we both made some mistakes but we're starting over, this is our new life together - Jackson
I told yu, I can’t do this right now.
So you gonna blame me because she didn't take care of it like you did!? - Jackson
You know what, I can’t talk to you right now. I’m leaving.
Taking care of babies, feeding people, nurses, cleaning bathrooms and offices. So much of this life saving care taking work is devalued and it is literally what makes the world run. To all the ‘cleaning ladies’ and the nannies, and the master chefs making magic everyday, you make us all more possible. #respectdomesticworkers #tipwell #keepitcleanwherepossible

"boy i’m in a great mood!"
"oh, please. you can’t REALLY be in a great mood. there are people out there who just got raises. people just got married. people are being reunited with their families right now. how dare you say you’re happy."
The equivalent of someone saying you can’t be sad because other people have it worse than you.

What the fuck do you think is gunna happen when you lose weight from your chest.. they’re going to magically turn into perky rainbow titties??

" People ask ’ So, how are the roles now? You must be getting so many.’ And it’s like, I don’t know if you know, but I’m Asian still. It’s not a complaint, that’s just how it is now, and I have to forge my own path through it and see that through. I think that if I had not been Asian, I probably would have a whole plethora of roles, at least to audition for, but it’s just not what has been written.” - Steven Yeun
When all else fails, gotta roll up your sleeves and do it, to it.

Capone prided himself as a man with style. If he ever killed someone himself, or one of his henchmen killed an important person, hundreds of dollars worth of flowers was sent to the funeral. In one fight between Capone’s men and another gang, an innocent woman was shot, not fatally, and required hospital treatment. Capone personally paid for all the hospital fees. He also would pay for all children’s hospital bills when he visited.
But he was also a vicious murderer who had no issue killing people regardless of their guilt or innocence. He was just very good at image control. You think the families of Capone’s victims, whether personal or by proxy, gave a fraction of a damn if Capone sent flowers to the funeral? You think they WANTED that? Uh, no. Honey, that’s not “I’m sorry,” that’s GLOATING. Your good deeds do not mitigate the atrocities you commit for territorial and financial gain.
I find it stunning that Capone is idolized to the extent he is. White guys can get away with ANYTHING and they’ll still be idolized.
Capone was a fucking monster who held my home city hostage when he was in power.
this image of compassion WAS CAREFULLY CONSTRUCTED, IT WAS PROPAGANDA, IT WAS TO MAKE PEOPLE SAY “oh, these organized murderers aren’t so bad.” they funded parades, gave aid to sick children and immigrants, donated to charities. this is how they bought the people over, this is how they made them complacent. all the while, the Mob was running drugs and illegal firearms, buying out politicians, stealing money for every which way, and fucking MURDERING PEOPLE, OFTEN IN TERRIBLE WAYS.
also, if you think that Capone fucking sending flowers to his victims’ funerals was in any way positive, you have a fundamental misunderstanding of how the Mob communicated. they perverted politeness to add insult to injury. if your family was killed by the Mob and you received flowers, it was a final fuck you to your dead loved one, a way to gloat over their crime WHICH THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT, and a threat: we’re watching you; don’t you dare try to get revenge.
in short, when the Mob did people favors, it was never out of kindness. there was always an ulterior motive: publicity, winning over higher-ups, putting people in a position where they OWED A DEBT.
also, in case people have forgotten: the Chicago outfit of the Mob still exists. it doesn’t have as much power as it once did, but it’s still there and it’s still fucking horrible.
is that you hobby lobby
Am I the only one that’s a just a tiny bit pissed off that this is still an issue?
The Original Series wasn’t even in the general VICINITY of fucking around yo
OKAY, so you know I care about reboot and all, despite its problems, because that shit got me into Star Trek in the first place. But you wanna know its major problem? It’s not good science fiction. It’s an action movie in space. GOOD science fiction is the original fucking series, right here.
They took a social issue that was HIGHLY TABOO and made a show about it because you can get away with that kind of thing by putting it on another planet and just having the Enterprise point the bullshit out. It’s 2014 and this argument is sadly still relevant. And do you know why it’s still relevant? Because the average person isn’t well-educated in social issues. They’re well-educated in summer blockbusters. We need more science fiction that broadens the mind and just doesn’t pit good vs. evil. Star Wars is where you go for great action adventure, good vs. evil. Star Trek was wholly separate because it was concerned with the human condition and the state of the future.
In short, I will roundhouse kick anyone in the face that calls the original series a silly 60s camp show with no entertainment value. It made me contemplate my very existence and it did so on the budget of a bologna sandwich.
SECONDING ALL OF THIS SO VERY MUCH.
Fiction is a clever thing, because when you’re enjoying something fictional, whether it’s a book or a TV show or a movie or a video game, you don’t have your defenses up in the way you will do when someone IRL tries to tell you about social issues. When you hear a message about social issues through fiction, it’s vastly more likely to make it past those barriers you’d otherwise be putting up and to make a difference to you.
This could be a really good thing, wherein fiction becomes a means by which to easily get positive and constructive messages across to people, but more often it’s instead just full of nasty, toxic shit like how women are prizes and black people are criminals and bisexuality isn’t real and trans people are freaks. That’s the shit that’s getting through those barriers at the moment, and it’s fucking awful.
Fuck you if you don’t think entertainment or fiction matter.
