Kevin Feige’s response when asked if Marvel is open to a Black Panther movie or a movie with a female lead.
Excuses. “Matter of when”, “matter of juggling franchises”. But it’s so easy to throw up Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy? One movie that nobody wanted and another movie that appears to have no connection at all to the current MCU? But as long as there are white male leads, you can make all the plans you want. Give me a break.
When will it ever be the precise, correct time for a blockbuster superhero movie with a black lead? Or a female lead? Or god forbid a woman of color? When?
Now. The answer is now. The time is now. Get the fuck off your high horse, Kevin Feige, and start acknowledging us as people.

Crazy (Gnarls Barkley Cover) - Daniela Andrade
The beauty of covers are that the cheery R&B style of Gnarls Barkley can be transformed into a heartfelt acoustic song. Daniela Andrade’s uses her wonderful voice to illuminate the sublime beauty of the lyrics. After listening to this I realized that Crazy is about the insanity of life, the people who think they are control but aren’t, and the solace we can find in accepting the world in all of its crazed glory. I love this cover so much.
“I remember when I lost my mind. There was something so pleasant about that place.”
#this sings caroline deep in my fucking /bones/ #like: soft and hurting and swaying and blaming herself for everything #buyring herself deeper and deeper into her guilt #and all the while being fierce and defensive and shining #and trying to reconcile herself #to mend what’s broken; not realizing that she’s mistaking #beauty for brokenness (via)
So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.
I’m dubious. I should read a passage:
It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
You have some explaining to do, Canada.
You guys don’t understand. Screw it being a bestseller, 50 Shades of Gray is a bestseller, this book won the Governor General’s Award. That’s the highest literary award in Canada. That’s the pulitzer prize of Canadian literature. Bear is a part of Canadian literary history.
i had to read this book in uni for my first year Canadian literature class. When we first heard of it we were like, “Oh the Bear’s a metaphor or some shit.” but then one kid read ahead, and was like, “Guys, no, she literally fucks the bear. She fucked a bear.”Vote wash bear 2k14voidwish
