When I’m working at my desk the boo has to come get kisses (aka step on the keyboard and keep me from working) good thing he’s so cute #kitty #zen
There’s a reason he drank so much in season four that’s all I’m saying O.O
That’s how it works for me, and I think that’s why I find no experiential difference between reading on my (e-ink) Kindle or from a printed book. But someone I was talking to said he paid so much attention to the words and the sentence structure and so on that it was really distracting for him to read anything but a pbook. I didn’t know that anyone experienced reading differently from my “watching a movie in my head” way. How is it when you read?
[Edit: I’m not asking whether you prefer pbooks or ebooks, just what the experience of “reading” is like for you. For example, I never understand why people say they prefer the feel/smell of print books, because when I read I get so into a story that I don’t even notice what medium the story is coming from. Like the experience of reading a book, for me, is not even that different from watching a movie.
I also think that’s why things have to be well written—not because I notice the wording, but because if the picture isn’t painted well enough, the “movie” in my head is boring and sparse.
Edit 2: I also write this way. More than one workshopper has called me a “cinematic writer”. This is all so interesting to me!]
people should just reply to anon hate with this
damn dude thats brutal
the notebook problem: you see a notebook. you want to buy the notebook. but you know you have like TEN OTHER NOTEBOOKS. most which are STILL EMPTY. you don’t need to notebook. you’re probably not gonna use the notebook anyway. what’s the point? DONT BUY THE NOTEBOOK. you buy the notebook.
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.
