Just when you thought he couldn’t sink any lower, he kept sinking lower and lower.

What I loved about this scene was that they totally played it like Lester was seeing the family photo and having second thoughts.

When actually, he was seeing it and getting IDEAS for how to be MORE EVIL.

I love it.

domachenkov replied to your post: okay I have a Korra headcanon. so ther…

I have another headcannon! When they introduce Soo (Lin’s sister) it mentions she’s really into rare meteorites. Like father like daughter maybe? It says that neither of them know their dad, but until proven otherwise I’m going to assume hers is Sokka =)

okay I have a Korra headcanon.

so there has been discussion of tenzin and lin, and why they broke up, and bryke have not done much with pema as a person, so one wonders…why?

i think i know

bryke have talked about how being an airbender isn’t just about genetics, there’s a spiritual component to it

i think tenzin dumped lin and married pema in part because he thought it would increase his odds of having airbender kids.  pema was an air acolyte, so she had the spiritual component.  

not saying he doesn’t love her, but i think that was in his mind.  lin has strong bending abilities of her own, and he saw with his own parents that his dad, who was the AVATAR, only had one kid out of three who shared his bending ability.  and we know that tenzin is all about dad’s legacy.

just a theory.

“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

sherlock & vicki

Sherlock’s face during this entire scene was priceless.

If I don’t reblog Vicky I’m probably dead.

I love how, at every turn, Sherlock is thrown, even if just for a moment, by Vicki’s answers.  He knows that somehow she fits the pattern, but she’s challenging all of his immediate perceptions of what the pattern is.  She’s not, by her exterior, immediately deduce-able (though I imagine after a half second of thought Sherlock’s response is always, “Oh, yes, obvious.”  I love that this woman is presented on the surface as older (and still single, oh the horror!), with wrinkles and roots showing, working a “menial” job as a maid, and not only is she the kinkiest and perhaps most self-analytical woman in the bunch (I STILL want to hear all 10 of her Ideal Man criteria) but also the outlier and the continual wrench in each of Sherlock’s theories.

I will never not want to know more, see more and hear more from Vicki.

I would like a whole show about Vicki plzkthx.

"There is nothing more important to me than you. Nothing. Not this film, not my whole sodding career, do you understand?” Sherlock said nothing, just looked at him with disbelieving eyes. “Don’t you fucking talk to me about something of value that I see in you, because it is you that I value, every bit of you, the shiny bits and the dodgy bits and all the bits in between. I don’t love you because of some little glimmer of worthiness that a bunch of fucking wankers convinced you that you didn’t possess. I don’t love you because you deserve it. None of us deserve it, but all of us deserve it. I love you because you are Sherlock Holmes and I am John Watson and we were waiting for each other without knowing it. You don’t have to act a certain way or be a certain person, you don’t have to earn my love, because it is yours no matter what you do and you’re just going to have to get used to it."

—John Watson, Performance in a Leading Role by Mad_Lori, Chapter 13 

This whole scene is just so intense but John’s speech always makes me a bit teary. 

(via you-just-solved-one)

I am sometimes asked what’s my favorite bit from “Performance” and I have trouble answering.  While the bit where Sherlock explains his sexuality gets a lot of love from readers, as does John’s Oscar speech, this…I think this might be my favorite.

my epic marathon of korra seasons 2 and 3 has now concluded.  brain a bit hurty but oh so many feels

  • dude there are so many amazing women in this and they are all so different, there are legit balls-out epic fight scenes in which the majority of the combatants are female and like HOW FUCKING OFTEN DOES THAT HAPPEN.  
  • korra korra korra korra
  • mako was really annoying in season 1 but I found him much less annoying in 2 and 3
  • bolin is often dorky but often legit funny and I just love it when he gets to turn on the badass earthbending on and yeah by the way lavabending too
  • asami is seriously the best ever like for realsies
  • these season 3 villains were awesome.  no-armed lady who waterbends herself arms?  that is killer.  also for some reason i loved the fact that P’li and Zaheer had this epic romance and she is like a foot taller than him.
  • ZUKOOOOOOOO.  but also i love that he really didn’t do much.  they’ve brought in the ATLA crew a bit because they know we love it but they didn’t let them pull focus.
  • but i don’t really get why it was such a big hairy deal that zaheer was able to fly.  like…can’t all airbenders pretty much fly?  they constantly zip around through the air on air currents, and firebenders rocket around with fire and stuff.
  • dude just i…i have never femmeslashed anything like i femmeslash korrasami.  it is so right the hell there.
  • but i just got kind of emotional in the last scene because with her head shaved jinora looked so much like aang
  • seriously though korraaaaaa.  aang was always very “let’s talk this out like reasonable people hey i’m good at peacekeeping and spiritual things” while korra be like “no, fuck you all, imma do the thing.”
  • calling it now, toph is totes alive

finally catching up with korra

watching season 2

you know, i love korra.  i love that she’s a hothead.  i love that she uses her physical strength as a crutch.  i love that she’s evolving.  i love that she’s emotional.

but my brain is rebelling a bit that aang would have possibly been a sucky father to favor tenzin so much, or that katara would remotely let him do that.

but dude.  asami is the fucking best.

Got to the end of season 2.  Waiting for season 3 to transfer to the flash drive (6 min to go).  It’s after midnight but I gotta watch at least one…

a few unanswered questions there

Interesting, this scene.  

I’ve seen comments about parallels to John in Lester here, but…look at him with that gun.

Martin somehow conveys that Lester is not comfortable with a gun, at all.  He looks awkward with it, the gun is leading him, not the other way around.

When he’s playing John with a gun, John looks utterly comfortable with it.  Think of the “gun vs. bike” bit in TGG, or the Dewar’s Hollow scene.  The gun is an extension of him, it isn’t an object he’s holding.

Both are very effective bits of subtle physical acting, and make it clear that Martin chooses his gestures and body language carefully.  It’s even more striking when one considers that Martin himself is probably NOT super comfortable with a gun - he doesn’t seem like the sport-shooting type - so the fact that John looks so at ease with his is a job well done.

Anonymous said: Aaaah Sherlock is Emmy-award-winning and it is making me grin like an idiot. But also I find it odd that by their definition Martin is a supporting actor?

anotherwellkeptsecret:

I’m not really sure how that works. Where’s MadLori?

*vroom*  HELLO FRIENDS I AM HERE.

The choice of categories that actors are submitted in is not the Academy’s call.  It’s up to the producers to submit actors for consideration, and they choose what category they’ll be submitted in.  They wouldn’t WANT Ben and Martin to be nominated for the same category for the same show, because then only one of them can win - or, more likely, they’ll split the vote and neither will win.  This way both can win, as they did tonight, and give the show more overall awards.

The Emmys don’t define who’s supporting vs. lead - the submitting studios/producers decide.  Agents are sometimes involved.  It can get pretty arbitrary - Jake Gyllenhaal was somehow a supporting actor for Brokeback Mountain even though he actually had more lines than Heath did.
