whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal
I just found the best Facebook page
A most excellent lesson in self-defense à la Agent Gracie Hart.
Friendly reminder that Miss Congeniality featured a practical self-defense lesson in the middle of a Hollywood movie while also dealing with with issues of sexual assault and victim blaming, dismantling the myth that all feminists need to look and act a certain way, featuring women of color in the pageant without it being any kind of issue, and bringing in an awesome female villain because women can be any kind of character thank you very much.
Rock on, Gracie Lou.
I look like an extremely professional fashionable woman in an Abaya. It probably took me AGES to look this professional right?
WRONG. I’m actually wearing my onesie underneath it and you will NEVER KNOW MWAHAHAHA
Wanna know another secret? Even though i LOOK like I’m paying attention to whatever nonsense you are saying…..
I AM ACTUALLY WEARING HEADPHONES AND LISTENING TO MUSIC
THIS IS TO MUCH POWER FOR ONE PERSON TO HAVE
look at these boots and tell me you dont immediately want to go adventuring in them holy shit i love these shoes so much
WHERE CAN I GET THEM
This teen girl’s response to the DFTBA sexual abuse scandal is out of this world and needs to be watched and thought about and discussed.
This is a 16-year-old girl. Her video gave me CHILLS.
Summer Glau rehearsing for Serenity
I really love that she fights like a dancer.
i needa learn this
Well she was a ballet dancer so it makes sense. It’s beautiful to watch.
It’s kind of of interesting to me how many good film fighters came out of a dance background; Glau was a ballet dancer, Michelle Yeoh was in ballet before a spinal injury and Jackie Chan’s training was in Chinese opera before he went into stunt work (as did a lot of the other Hong Kong greats of his generation, like Sammo Hung). Also, Zhang Ziyi.
I’ve heard Bruce Lee was a big dancer too, but the thing I love the most about these gifs is the one in the middle where she spins and YOU CAN SEE HER BALLET IN HER SPIN THEN SHE KICKS A GUY IN THE HEAD AND IT’S BEAUTIFUL
it was built into her character too. River Tam was a genius at everything, including dancing. She loved it. There’s even that scene in the episode Safe where Simon follows River through the town and she finds this party and just starts dancing (in a pink dress and combat boots bless her) and she’s glowing the entire time. So it’s not only in her background as an actress, its built into the character as well.
when books make you cry like fuck you book you’re a stack of paper
I will always reblog this
I’m afraid some people will hate me, but I really like this.
