This is what they thought 2015 would be like in the 80s.
I’m sorry we have failed you.
Like I love the build up to The Bear Jew so much that you would not even have to pay me to follow around Eli Roth, play the music from that scene, and get people in any place he is gonna go into all siked.
- this movie is about a man who falls in love with a phone.
- are you fucking kidding me
- the porn mustache disturbed me along with his pants
- Why would someone like to watch 2 hours of a man talking to a computer?
- mediocre dialogue mixed with incredibly awkward and frequent phone sex
- I rate this movie lower than Garfield
- They finally “make love”…. It is boring
- Load of old tosh!
- Clean and bright subways? In this country?? Who is going to pay for them?
- Subtle white power movie? Yes.
- the least Joaquim Phoenix cd have done was commit suicide after his failed attempt at syncopating with a slutty OS
- We got tired of seeing the pores on his nose.
- If you enjoy watching a man talk into him phone for two hours then you’re in for a blast
- My cringe was cringing
I agree… kinda…?? Like the main plot is bad?? Like just the it is an OS part.
When James McAvoy stares at himself naked in the mirror (and I think most of us would if we looked like James McAvoy), I have a sneaking suspicion that he scowls. He’s such a damned pretty human being but if you look at his films, he only really seems to get off on playing total bastards. […] McAvoy’s boyish good looks and playful sleaziness make these scoundrels much more charismatic than they by all rights deserve, and his performance in Filth may be his assholish pièce de résistance.
Your résumé is already pretty strong. Do you consider yourself an SNL legend, revolutionary, or luminary?
No. Never. Never say that. What am I, an asshole? [Laughs.] I only can look at it through my own perspective, which was, “Holy shit! I worked at SNL and it didn’t go terribly.” When you work there, you’re in the shadow of literally everyone. It’s also impossible to be cocky or even confident about being a cast member there because you know that the show’s fan base is so wide and that, even if you’re someone’s favorite on the show, someone else watching hates you. It’s like a sports franchise: Everyone’s got their pick and everyone thinks they know who the weak link is and what should be done differently, and that’s what makes the show fun. (x)
markandyxii said: I don't know if you have already answered this, or care to voice your opinions about it all, but how do you feel about Scotland's independence? Is it the right thing for the country? As a Scot myself, I am excited about the possibility of having an independent nation again, but at the same time I am concerned on whether or not it is fiscally a good idea. Do you think the referendum is going to pass?
I’m voting Yes. I wasn’t sure I could, but apparently I’m still registered at home so I’m voting by proxy (thanks Mum).
it took a while for me to wade in, as both sides have been shouting over each other with a lot of blanket statements and scaremongering tactics, but then I started looking at figures.
The population of Scotland makes up 8.3% of the UK. That’s tiny. Then when you consider the resources the country provides for the rest of the union (e.g. 62% timber production, 40% wind, wave and solar energy, 90% of surface fresh water and an average of 30% fish and livestock) and start looking at those figures on a per capita basis, suddenly you realise Scotland could become one of the wealthiest countries in the world.
Of course I completely understand why this would make the rest of the UK nervous. But I do believe that an independent Scotland wouldn’t necessarily mean those resources would be completely cut off from England and Wales; they just won’t be entitled to them in the same way they currently are. Think of a young adult with a lot of potential, who has some toxic/manipulative elements in their relationship with their parents, leaving home for the first time with the intention of succeeding by themselves and cutting those toxic elements out. That’s p much how I see Scotland right now.
And what are those “toxic elements”, you ask? Well there’s the uncertain future of the NHS; the political party
currentlyobstinately in power that most of Scotland didn’t vote for (we literally have more pandas in the country than Tory MPs); the fact that the UK, with increasing influence of parties like UKIP, is under threat of leaving the EU (while the EU would gladly take on Scotland on its own); increasing cuts on welfare, particularly for disability and food aid; and also, keeping fucking Trident missiles in the country.
A lot of people think there’s too much uncertainty to come from a Yes vote, but here’s the thing! Scotland voting Yes does NOT mean instant independence this Thursday. The question of the referendum is “Should Scotland be an independent country?” If the country votes Yes, THEN they’ll get to work on making it happen. It likely won’t officially take place until, like, 2016. The plans are in place, but there’s no use acting on them yet in the chance it’s a No vote.
I’m optimistic that the referendum is going to pass. But even if it ends up being a No vote, I’m also of the belief that this will still pave the way for some serious political and economical change for Scotland - because I think that the vote will be close enough that either way this will be a serious wake-up call for Westminster, if not the rest of the UK.
I want to make it clear if I haven’t already that I’m not voting Yes as a slight against England based on some 700 year-old William Wallacey grudge. I live here, I like it here, I like the people here. I just like my home country more, and want to see it flourish - or at the very least, exist - separately from Westminster/Conservative rule. Whether I move back home next year, or settle in a house in Edinburgh when I’m old and tired of travelling, I’d like to return to the country knowing its future is in its own hands.
Anyway if none of this helps you make up your mind, do it because Dave Grohl says so
bringing this back as I just got two or three asks in the space of ten minutes asking my opinion as if I didn’t already write a big thing
I am very happy that this man could have woke up this morning about to be a free Scotsman.
