Fight Club trivia: When Lou sees the Fight Club members in the basement of his restaurant, Lou punches Tyler in the stomach. When Tyler gets punched, you can see the Narrator double over slightly as if he too was punched in the stomach. A few shots later, Lou kicks Tyler in the face while he is kneeling, and in the background we see the Narrator’s head go back at the moment of impact.
One of the first posts I ever reblogged on FYSE, I love it so much because you can really see that the clitoris and penis are the same thing.
… and they both look like dinosaurs.

Fun Fact: None of the actors but Gene Wilder knew that the tunnel scene was coming. Like, they had the lines and stuff, but they thought it was just a boat ride. And when the lights came on and he started singing their terror was real
This happened a lot throughout the movie. Which is one of the reasons it’s such a great film. The directors did the same thing when they all saw the inside of the Factory for the first time. They wanted to show the face of pure imagination. To capture it all.
The wonderful Mariah Huehner (@tiredfairy) has come up with an incredible idea. It’s called “MONSTROUS”, and it’s going to focus on “The relationship between girls/women and their bodies through the lens of storytelling in different mediums and genres.”
[Please reblog to get the word out!]Project type: collection/anthologyLooking for: Prose/comics/poems/artGenre: fiction (horror, sci-fi, fantasy, etc), auto-bio, non-fictionFor: Girls/WomenOpen to: contributors of any age and gender, on the general theme of “body image & girls/women”.Purpose: Let girls/women know they are not alone when they struggle with their body and our narrowly defined, “beauty” obsessed culture. Positive overall message, but, the stories themselves can be in any genre and be difficult/upsetting. Focus is on being meaningful explorations of theme.Stories can be about: Any body image related topics, from eating disorders to self-harm to sexual identity. Not limited to these topics, so stories will be evaluated individually.

“I thought it would have been a better ending to season 2 if Cassidy told Woody the kids were going to talk and then Woody blew up the bus to keep them quiet. Then Cassidy realized how dangerous Woody was and blew up the plane and killed himself because he couldn’t deal with all the guilt.”

This is a very good article about why Reddit’s anti-woman subreddits, leaked photos of Kate Middleton and other invasions of privacy matter. It’s not just gross, but rather indicative of a huge, visible burst of people honestly thinking that it is their right to invade and de-humanize women, women’s bodies and women’s lives. The posters on subreddits like (the late) creepshots honestly believe that free speech means they can do what they want and shouldn’t have to deal with any repercussion… I think this is an early battle in what will be a huge fight both on what internet anonymity means as well as being a pretty clear example of what ingrained, institutionalized sexism looks like in 2012.
