I wish people would leave Amanda bynes alone bc she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and her mom took her off her medication against doctors orders and now she’s having a manic episode and all of these people are making fun of her
she literally cannot control how she acts and she’s unaware that the way she’s acting is abnormal and it’s really shitty that people are laughing at her expense
next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
This is the classic story of a dog chasing a cat, though it turns the convention on its tail, so to speak.
Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.
The real problem with people fussing over Pluto all the time is it represents the priorities of the public - preserving traditions rather than accepting facts. The pursuit of science is about building a sustainable catalog of truths, and there is no advantage in altering truths to appease nostalgia.
Get Lost In This Eye-Conic Supercut Of Hitchcock’s Close-Ups
The master of suspense meets the master of the supercut in Eyes of Hitchcock, a cinematic roundup that gathers the iconic close-ups Alfred Hitchcock used to control just how scared his audiences would be. Kogonada, the supercut master and “video essayist" who compiled Wes Anderson’s symetrical shots and Stanley Kubrick’s one point perspectives, pieces together this fresh compilation as the inaugural video in the Criterion Collection’s brand new Vimeo channel.
Since Hitchcock’s masterful close-ups rarely last more than a few seconds, Kogonada has captured them in a looping GIF-like form, giving each shot the time it needs to be truly appreciated (and picked apart by film enthusiasts). Below, we made a few actual GIFs of our favorite moments, both from Kogonada’s compilation and Hitchcock’s career. Even though we’ve watched Eyes of Hitchcock four or five times already, we still can’t help but get lost in these eye-conic frames.
