I’ve had a really rough day of needing to figure out a lot of things unexpectedly while feeling a lot of different and intense things. It’s a terrible combination, let me tell you.
As I was getting off the phone with my mom, she said “You’re a winner. You’re a winner and a prize.” I’m not sure I believe her, but it was a really nice thing to have her say.
someone wrote a letter in calling AOA loki a “tom hiddleston look-alike” and im pretty sure that this is, to date, the most modest estimation of the size of tom hiddleston’s forehead ive ever seen
Really? They look nothing alike.
I keep seeing this crop up as a criticism and I do not understand. Like, Hiddleston was cast (in part) because he looks like Loki
Why would Loki not look like him
i actually barely even see a resemblance between him and loki
maybe if he got back to us in ten years and shaved his eyebrows?
Whether or not there is a resemblance is a matter of opinion. What I mean is, I don’t understand the criticisms where people do think there’s a resemblance and then frame it like some kind of gotcha, like it’s a bad thing that the actor portraying the character would resemble the character.
And I don’t see this with anybody else. Whenever somebody points out the resemblance between, say, Tony Stark and RDJ it’s to praise them for great casting.
Like I legit don’t get why people think this would be bad and it’s odd.
Ooh ooh I know this one! *waves hands*
It’s because a large portion of Loki fans are female, and vocal, and women only like comics because of hot guys, and Tony Stark doubles as a dude’s power fantasy but Loki really doesn’t, it’s not just that he’s the villain but also he’s a villain who’s intentionally coded NOT as pure masculinity (although PAUSE FOR LAUGHS AT TONY AS PURE MASCULINITY but anyway).
So sexism! My answer is sexism!
"Sexism" is a really solid answer to a lot of questions about things that don’t quite make sense in reactions to comics.
My roommate is gone for 36 hours. I am sitting in my living room in a t-shirt and underwear drinking wine, watching HGTV and eating Girl Scout cookies. I am, I think, living the dream.
i asked my friends the other day “who’s the great gatsby’s favorite superhero?”
and one of my friends spent five minutes FREAKING THE FUCK OUT because i’d told him the answer before and he couldn’t remember but one of them goes
"the futility in trying to achieve an unattainable, far-off image of the american dream"
the answer to the joke is “the green lantern”
"yes" i told him
