ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)
I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.
I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!
this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.
I CAN’T WAIT
So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway. Ask box is open, slam away.
When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people. By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.
Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it. A BLACK orphan?! Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.
Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.
this sums up what I couldn’t quite put into words
i cried when she started singing like ive really needed this
GORGEOUS OH MY GOD SO BEAUTIFUL

And if I’m not in the fandom, I’ll go by what I’ve learned from tumblr
Someone do this
A game my family created over Easter weekend.
1 trampoline with protective net-wall thing
3-4 average sized inflatable bouncy balls
lots of energy
The game is as follows:
2-3 people in the trampoline
2-3 people around the trampoline
The people inside the trampoline are the “defenders”, defending the inside of the trampoline from the “attackers”, the people outside. The attackers throw the bouncy balls over the protective net while the defenders deflect the balls out of the trampoline (attackers then scramble to either hit the balls back in, or get the balls out of a tree in our case :/ ), all while maintaining their balance and footing on the trampoline. Whenever the defenders manage to throw all the balls out of the trampoline they yell “DEFENDERS”. Whenever the attackers manage to throw all the balls into the trampoline they yell “ATTACKERS”. This volley kind of goes on until one side collapses from exhaustion (usually it’s the defenders due to the extra work of jumping around on the trampoline—they go down swinging).
I dunno I thought this game would be fun to share it’s hella fun.
Happy Zombie-Jesus Day.
hey y’all, so i’ve been taking commissions on my writing for a while now, and i felt like we all needed a reminder! i write fanfic, poetry, and original fiction.
all the money that i earn will go towards saving up for hormones (which i would ideally like to start sometime this year!) or food. i have a job but living in nyc is very expensive and i need plenty of help, especially as i start to look to moving into my own place.
my fanfic is located here. older poetry and original fiction is here; newer original work examples can be sent to anyone who’s curious. i don’t post it publicly because it would prevent me from getting published.
- poetry - $3 per stanza
- prose up to 1,000 words - $1 per 100 words (rounded)
- longer prose (1,000+ words) - $10 for the first 1,000 words, add $1 per 250 words (rounded)
i will write for any fandom that i am familiar with, which is A LOT of fandoms so by all means, ask me! i will write any rating, any pairing, any kink.
i’m also accepting any donations you want to throw my way, if you’re so inclined. my paypal is email@example.com and you can send messages to me via email or to my tumblr! signal boosts are appreciated.
I PHYSICALLY CAN’T NOT REBLOG THIS WHEN IT COMES UP ON MY DASH
IT’S TOO COOL
It’s called Winterguard. It’s a sport. Those girls are marching band color-guard girls during the summer touring season, and during the winter they compete against other color-guard teams to music. Costumes, props, mats, everything has to be carried onto the gym floor and then taken back away and counts as part of your performance time.
So when Family Guy or other popular media makes fun of color-guard girls, it pisses me off. We are not rejected cheerleaders. We are what you see above. We kick ass. We spin rifles and flags and sabers.
I love this toss so much. And it’s actually really easy to do.
You lay the silk flat on the ground and put the (in this case paper/glitter) on the silk near the pole. Then roll it up until it’s all covered by the rolled part.
When you toss the silk will unroll and release what you put in it at the peak of the toss.
things go in flag, roll flag like burrito, clench tight until you toss, burrito goes poof, things rain down, pretty
thanks science side of tumblr
