the aleph.

"It's in the cellar under the dining room," he went on, so overcome by his worries now that he forgot to be pompous. "It's mine -- mine. I discovered it when I was a child, all by myself. The cellar stairway is so steep that my aunt and uncle forbade my using it, but I'd heard someone say there was a world down there. I found out later they meant an old-fashioned globe of the world, but at the time I thought they were referring to the world itself. One day when no one was home I started down in secret, but I stumbled and fell. When I opened my eyes, I saw the Aleph."

"The Aleph?" I repeated.

"Yes, the only place on earth where all places are -- seen from every angle, each standing clear, without any confusion or blending. I kept the discovery to myself and went back every chance I got. As a child, I did not foresee that this privilege was granted me so that later I could write the poem. Zunino and Zungri will not strip me of what's mine -- no, and a thousand times no! Legal code in hand, Doctor Zunni will prove that my Aleph is inalienable."

Everyone’s talking about Israel’s “right to defend itself”. I must have missed when the definition of “defend” became “to attack a smaller, weaker, and powerless opponent in order to strip them of autonomy and basic human rights”.

Anonymous asked: Why does Chris Evans always grab his left boob when he laughs?

officialchelso:

Hello, anon, and thank you for the question.

This topic has been studied by researchers for years. There are three prevailing theories that I will relay to you now.

1. It keeps him on the ground.

image

You may notice in the gif above that Chris’ leg starts to rise as he laughs, possibly a precursor to his entire body undergoing a sort of lift off due to his joy. Chris then employs his upper body strength to force himself to obey the laws of gravity.

2. To check on his physique.

image

As you may be aware, anon, it takes a lot of hard work to maintain a superhero body. Chris is concerned that in the time he has spent sitting down, sans working out or eating, he has lost muscle mass. Understandably, he feels the need to make sure that he is still a specimen.

3. Object permanence.

image

Object permanence is a term applied to the understanding that an object still exists even when you cannot see it. Chris closes his eyes when he laughs, making him unable to see that he has not disappeared. By grabbing his left boob, Chris knows that he has not somehow ceased to exist.

I hope this helps.

This movie speaks to me so much because of so many reasons

Selena was big during a time in my life when I was just discovering who I was, and I was just beginning to figure out the sort of music that I liked. I was still in Elementary school when she came on the scene, and I’d just started Junior High when she was killed (The movie came out in late 1996 I think…). I remember much of the coverage for it fairly vividly, and to this day I listen to her music and to this day it still affects me on a very emotional level.

I am from Texas, so the Tejano community here is pretty damn big. For those unfamiliar with the Tejano scene, I want to paint you a picture:

Tejano is a type of music that is predominantly led, sang, produced, and run by men. It was very difficult for a female singer to make it as a Tejano singer. Much less a half Mexican Tejano female singer.(Edit: Full mexican, but she spanish was her second language and she was raised in Texas. My bad)

Selena not only changed how Tejano music sounded, she became as big if not BIGGER than most of the male Tejano singers of her day. AND WHAT’S MORE! She made it mainstream! She single handedly was able to cross over from Tejano into American pop music! THAT IS UNHEARD OF AND THE FACT THAT SHE WAS A FEMALE MADE IT GROUNDBREAKING.

This scene? Right here? From the movie? Shows not only her Mexican fans, but her fans from the white community as well. SHE WAS POPULAR IN BOTH EVEN BEFORE HER ENGLISH ALBUM. As far as I know (and correct me if I’m wrong please) no one has been able to do this SINCE her. And certainly not to the same degree she did.

If she had lived, I have no doubt she’d have been J-Lo before J-Lo.

Sorry, end rant.

I have a lot of feelings about this woman.

(Also, if you haven’t heard her music, please go listen to it. It’s fantastic)

Me and Tasha have a lot of Selena feelings

ugh so heads up to anyone who goes to see This Is The End: it’s pretty much a two-hour rape and violence-against-women joke. Explanation under the cut, massive TW for rape and violence.

Least surprising thing, EVER. As if I needed more reasons to never want to see that movie.

This is why it’s so funny/tragic when people degrade Kim Kardashian for the fact that she made a sex tape, calling her a worthless slut, gold-digging whore etc (literally everyone ever’s reaction when someone mentions Kim Kardashian. Congratuations, you’re so original! And such a charming person!)
Like.. she doesn’t care. She was horny and she felt like it. What other reason does someone need to make a sex tape with their boyfriend? The fact that he was then evil enough to completely violate her privacy and release the tape without her permission is his bad. That’s on him. He’s a cunt, as is any man who publicizes naked photos and video footage of women against their will. Also a criminal.
And it was one of the most shattering things that can happen to a woman. If someone released a video of me then god, I’d be heartbroken. I’d have crawled under a rock and never come out again. But she recovered and then made a hugely successful career for herself, her mother and all four of her sisters, and… people portray that as a bad thing? “Her whole family is only famous for her sex tape!!!” Yep, and? Go on, keep calling her a pointless whore. She can’t hear you over her multiple successful businesses, tv shows, endorsement deals and the guaranteed-safe futures of herself and her entire family.

This.
