E THEME BY EXCOLO
Hi, everyone. I'm Attila, I write stories, get way too self-conscious to post them, and become stupidly invested in a lot of fictional universes.

Come say hi! I can basically promise that I'd love to get to know you.

The movie is about…as he struggles to find an identity in the modern world, his old life is slipping away - is hanging on by a thread. Peggy doesn’t remember him… and she’ll be dead soon. She’s the last remnant of his past. And Sam happens to find his way into his life, so now he’s slowly meeting a new friend, he’s gaining a trust with Widow…so the movie is about a journey for him as he finds new elements in the modern world to emotionally attach himself to. The cruel twist is that, the Winter Soldier shows up…and it’s like the past punching him in the face.” — Joe Russo [x]

corseque:

A wonderful meeting, or a beautiful thing can exist. We depict hatred, but it is to depict that there are more important things. We depict a curse, to depict the joy of liberation. What we should depict is, how the boy understands the girl, and the process in which the girl opens her heart to the boy. At the end, the girl will say to the boy, ‘I love you, Ashitaka. But I cannot forgive humans.’ Smiling, the boy should say, ‘That is fine. Live with me.’”  ( — Hayao Miyazaki)

If Stuntmen from the old movies don’t have your full respect then I just don’t know what to say to you

l tried really hard not to reblog this

Yeah, it is indeed really hard not to reblog a fucking thing.

Can we all agree that the man in the first gif is the manliest man in the world?

Are we just going to all silently acknowledge that the last guy is clearly dead and that we just saw him die. 

HOLD UP FOR A SECOND

ALL OF THESE GIFS ARE ONE MAN

THE SINGULAR BUSTER KEATON

WHILE FILMING THE GENERAL

HE SNAPPED HIS NECK ON THE RAILROAD TIES AND WENT HOME AND ICED HIS BODY

AND CAME BACK FOR WORK THE NEXT DAY

HE ONCE GOT HIS HIP RIPPED OUT OF ITS SOCKET BY A MALFUNCTIONING ELEVATOR AND WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH HIMSELF FOR BEING INJURED

HE ONCE HAD TO FALL 100 FEET DOWN A WATERFALL INTO A NET

A STUNTMAN TESTED IT AND BROKE BOTH LEGS AND DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER

BUSTER DID THE STUNT ANYWAY AND LANDED WITHOUT A SCRATCH

IN ‘THE HIGH DIVE’

BUSTER DID A TRICK DIVE THROUGH A CARDBOARD DECK THAT WAS CAMOUFLAGED TO LOOK LIKE THE REAL DECK

ONLY HE COULDN’T TELL FROM 100 FEET UP WHERE THE CARDBOARD STOPPED AND THE REAL DECK STARTED AND THERE WAS ONLY LIKE A THREE FOOT MARGIN FOR ERROR

AND WHEN HE HESITATED A SUDDEN BREEZE LITERALLY KNOCKED HIM OFF THE DIVING BOARD AND HE HAD TO JUMP ANYWAY

AND HE MISSED THE REAL DECK BY LESS THAN A FOOT BUT HE MADE IT

IN THE SECOND GIF HE’S RECREATING SOMETHING THAT THE ACTUAL GENERAL PURSUERS HAD TO DO IN THE CIVIL WAR

IF HE MISSES THAT TIE

THE TRAIN WILL BE DERAILED AND HE WILL DIE IN THE EXPLOSION

IN THE THIRD GIF AN ENTIRE HOUSE IS FALLING HE HAS ONE TAKE AND IF HE HAS NOT DONE THE CALCULATIONS CORRECTLY HE WILL BE CRUSHED

HE HAS AN INCH-WIDE MARGIN ON EACH SIDE

AND THE HOUSE LITERALLY BRUSHES HIS LEFT SHOULDER ON THE WAY DOWN

YOU CAN SEE HIS LEFT ARM JUMP BECAUSE HE’S FLINCHING FROM THE PAIN

THAT LAST GIF

HE WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE THAT JUMP

HE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO FALL AND THEY HADNT PLANNED FOR IT

BUT HE SURVIVED

BUSTER KEATON SURVIVED 100% OF THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE KILLED LESSER MEN INCLUDING WWI, TORNADOS, HOUSEFIRES, ALCOHOLISM, BROKEN NETS, CRUSHING DEPRESSION, THE DEPRESSION ITSELF, THE MCCARTHY WITCHHUNTS, THE END OF SILENT CINEMA, AND ABOUT 900 MORE OF THE STUNTS YOU SEE ABOVE

BUSTER LIVED TO BE 70 YEARS OLD

FATHERED LIKE FOUR KIDS AND EIGHT GRANDKIDS

HE CAME OUT THE OTHER SIDE OF ALL THAT

THINKING THAT LIFE WAS GOOD AND PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL

BUSTER KEATON IS NOT JUST A STUNTMAN

HE IS A GODDAMN SAINT

BUSTER KEATON’S PARENTS WERE PART OF A TRAVELING SHOW.

THEY WERE ACROBATS.

THEY TOOK BABY BUSTER UP HIGH IN THE AIR WITH THEM.

THEY DROPPED HIM.

LUCKILY SOMEONE WHO WAS STANDING UNDER THEM CAUGHT BABY BUSTER.

THAT MAN WAS HARRY HOUDINI. 

HARRY HOUDINI SAVED BUSTER KEATON’S LIFE.

if you don’t think that’s the coolest shit you can get right out.

- What’s so great about Kenzi anyway?
- She’s Kenzi. She’s smart, and honest, and kind. And she makes me feel normal. And special. All at the same time. She is my heart, Tamsin.

"There was a boycott of national TV news in very early 1982.  Tanks had gone on the streets, the television news of course was telling pure lies, about how marvellous life was now, isn’t it great that Solidarity is gone.  Which to put it mildly it was not the narrative being heard in the sitting rooms of the people watching the television bulletin. 

So they said, Let’s have a boycott of TV news.  But then people said, Well what’s the point having a boycott if no one knows we’re doing it?  So in one particular part of Poland they started putting television sets out into the window — disconnect the television set and put it in the window as your statement to say we’re not watching in this household at least. 

That was one group, but a second group said: Well, that’s kind of good, but I like doing it with other people as well…  So the second group went down into the square and walked around the streets and the square between 7.30 and 8 every evening - without any slogans, which of course immediately got you arrested, tanks on the street around.  But everybody kind of knew why you were there.  But the police couldn’t arrest you because they couldn’t tell the difference between a shopper or someone who’s just out for a walk and someone who is protesting.  So that was a nice little protest.

And then the best group of all, my absolute favourite, combined the two and they said, I kind of like going in the square but I kind of like showing it’s about TV.  So what they did was they took the television, unplugged it, carried it out of the apartment, carried it down the stairs, carried it into the streets - either put it on their shoulders or put it in a babies’ pram, and then walked around the streets with the TV.

Again the police kind of really didn’t know how to react, they did kind of arrest people but it was hard to find the article in the constitution which says, You must not carry a TV around the square between 7.30 and 8 at night.  And so the result was the only thing the authorities could do - which was fundamentally a defeat for the authorities - was to bring the curfew when you’d be arrested or shot if you stepped out of your door, instead of it being 11 o’clock in the evening they brought it forward to 7o’clock in the evening. 

Whereupon the protesters, I should say, did it during the 5 o’clock news bulletin instead.”

- Steve Cranshaw relates one story from his book Small Acts of Resistance in a Humanity in Action keynote in Warsaw called Poland’s Narrative of Protest.
