HOW MANY CANDLES HAVE YOU BLOWN OUT TODAY
Don’t dare blaspheme the candle!
HOW MA-NY CAN-DLES
A lot of people have been reblogging this asking if it’s real and providing alternate versions of the story, so here is the official trivia from IMDB. If anyone else has a different source then feel free to provide it:
OH MY GOD, I did NOT know that story about the lady who told them where the wessels were.
The woman who answers Uhura and Chekhov when they are looking for the “nuclear wessels” was an extra who was not supposed to speak. Layla Sarakalo had never acted before and was told to “act naturally”. So when she was asked, she improvised an answer. Much to Sarakalo’s surprise, her unscripted line was kept in the film. Sarakalo happened upon the set when her car was towed away to make room for the film’s production. Sarakalo offered to be an extra so that she could make money to get her car back. (x)
So… She was almost a random who walked past…
But still, totally unscripted, and a brilliant moment in the movie XD
WHERE DO YOU EVEN STICK A FACEHUGGER ON?
This heart-warming display of affection took place in Port Lockroy, a natural harbour in the Antarctic Peninsula. It was captured on camera by professional photographer Silviu Ghetie. The pair stand hand in hand appearing to stare out at the dramatic vista of the frozen Antarctic landscape and even get the cold shoulder from a passerby. Then, still holding each other, they wander down to the icy waters and the rest of their friends. Article |
From the corner of her eye, however, she could see the Brigadier beginning to panic. Good, Liz decided. At least she’d got *him* trained.

when we talk about women in refrigerators it’s not always something super literal
i don’t imagine in writers room across the globe they’re all sitting there like “well we’re out of ideas let’s fridge another one” (but maybe they do i have no idea)
but what’s happening consciously or unconsciously writers are deciding that women are more valuable dead then alive. this goes way back. this is poe saying there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman. this is a dozen pre raphaelite paintings of ophelia drowning because they found her suffering erotic. this is the first reaction to laura palmer’s body being found being, “she was so beautiful.”
fuck this. fuck this.
i’m sick of writers getting passes. fuck this. our strong women are taken from us. we don’t get survivors. we don’t get triumph. women get chopped into artistic little pieces for the male heroes to choke own because we’re more valuable this way. because this way you don’t have to worry about our hopes and fears and opinions because we’re dead and dead women tell no tales. they can’t speak out against injustice because men took their tongues. and they think it’s beautiful. death, the ultimate passivity, the ultimate waiting room, is the most beautiful thing of all. there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman.
women matter. they matter when they are living. not listening to women while they’re still breathing is a failure and should not be regarded as anything else. it is a failure with very serious effects
Looking up Scottish mythological creatures and
Wulver: a werewolf in Shetland, that is said to have had the body of a man with a wolf’s head. It was reported to have left fish on the windowsills of poor families.
That is the nicest Werewolf legend I’ve ever heard of.
Now I wish I could draw because I’d love to draw this.
Today I was feeling especially shitty about gender binary, and how it’s acceptable to be androgynous only if you’re young, thin and pretty. I hear people talking shit about old “men” who wear makeup and “look ridiculous”, and I feel like they’re talking about me because one day I’ll be old and wrinkly and maybe finally brave enough to wear whatever the fuck I want. So I doodled these to cheer myself up, as a kind of a “fuck you” to assholes and a “love you” to fellow genderqueer people. Let’s grow old together and be awesome. <3
