rin absentmindedly signing his name as “nanase rin” and then getting so embarrassed he eats the paper to destroy the evidence
Speaking of movies, this is basically Inuit Beowulf.
It was written, produced, directed, and acted entirely by Inuit people. I think a lot of people might be interested in Medieval Inuit art and literature, and this is a pretty great example.
You can watch and download the entire trilogy here for free (but donate if you can!!!); Atanarjuat is the first film and takes place around 1000 A.D.-ish. It also won a LOT of awards. Keep in mind: it’s entirely in Inuktitut, with English subtitles.
(More like Beowulf is the Scandinavian Atanarjuat!)
LOL! I was merely trying to make a comparison for people so they’d kind of understand why it’s all so formal and stylized, but yeah I actually like Atanarjuat much better! It’s the kind of story that it is: epic, terse, full of drama, betrayal, magic, good versus evil, archetypal characters….it’s friggin GREAT.
The way they compiled the script and cross-checked all the versions to try and make it as accurate as possible was awesome…they actually have an interactive map so you can sort of see the geographical relations between the events in the film. (It is, of course, kind of wasted on me :P)
i guess the thing to understand about me and dirk is that sometimes i really want him to grow and sometimes i just want him to suffer
and arquiusprite, as his own personality mirrored back at him with the addition of several new kinks and extremely annoying habits, is such a perfect karmic punishment
it’s like one of those ironic punishments in the underworld that’s perfectly suited to whatever you did wrong
for being dirk strider you’re sentenced to experiencing your own personality but even more obnoxious and with horse puns
"Kanye West is [insert negative, rude, opinionated adjective here]"
yeah. that’s why he calmly and respectfully addressed the false Mandela tabloids. Even though it’s been four plus days, people are still talking about and treating him poorly for something he didn’t even do.
but is anyone actively talking about this series of tweets he wrote today? no. because people are ignorant and refuse to see that he isn’t always angry, rude, and disrespectful. kanye west mirrors the behavior that’s directed towards him.
The entire thing is really worth a read. Go check it out!
OMFG someone who gets it! Gets it! It is FUN! Less of the moralizing and woe is me shit! Fun!
Great article. Especially about the magical negro bit. *sighs*
well i hope that cruel angel got into grad school
Really you can’t further the deceptive trans women trope without inciting and justifying violence against us, it simply isn’t possible, so don’t pretend you aren’t.
