It’d be cool to do a “sisterhood of the traveling pants” but with books. Everyone uses a dif color highlighter to highlight their favorite part/or to just add a rant/thought about a specific section (with sticky notes) that made them think. And at the end the book is probably worn out, colorful, and has emotions, history and different perspectives poured into it.
whenever i watch a show with my family i like to throw in bits of trivia about the writers, actors, original script… that sort of thing
they’re never as awed as they should be tbh
I do this with friends too….catered specifically to each person in the room….”what might you know this actor from? hmmmmm, you seem like the type of person who would have seen Hackers sometime in college….but YOU seem like the type of person who would have seen NTLive’s Frankenstein….I got this.”
my dream is to one day make enough money to remake the movie twilight so that everything is exactly the same except edward cullen is played by kanye west and kanye west doesnt have a script and isn’t even aware of what the plot of the movie is, he’s just kanye west reacting to twilight in real time
“This fetishization of not censoring yourself, of being an “equal-opportunity offender,” is bizarre and bad for comedy. When did “not censoring yourself” become a good thing? We censor ourselves all the time, because we are not entitled, sociopathic fucks. Your girlfriend is censoring herself when she says she’s okay with you playing Xbox all day. In a way, comedy is censoring yourself—comedy is picking the right words to say to make people laugh. A comic who doesn’t censor himself is just a dude yelling. And being an “equal opportunity offender”—as in, “It’s okay, because Daniel Tosh makes fun of ALL people: women, men, AIDS victims, dead babies, gay guys, blah blah blah”—falls apart when you remember (as so many of us are forced to all the time) that all people are not in equal positions of power. “Oh, don’t worry—I punch everyone in the face! People, baby ducks, a lion, this Easter Island statue, the ocean…” Okay, well that baby duck is dead now. And you’re a duck-murderer. It’s really easy to believe that “nothing is sacred” when the sanctity of your body and your freedom are never legitimately threatened.”—
People in fandoms take apart stories more than English teachers.
English Teacher:The curtains were blue to show the depressing feelings the character was feeling.
Writer:The curtains were blue because I like blue curtains...
Fandom:The curtains were blue because they reminded him of the blue trench coat his best friend used to wear. Because truly, deep down in his heart, he loved that man more than a best friend. He loved him and he completed him. Now that he's gone, all he has to remember him by is those blue curtains.
