Still pretty proud of my response to this.

I was totally down with the change over already, but not knowing the backstory, this just convinced me so hard that Captain America needs to be a minority right now. 
Before, Marvel said, “This is what you want? Well fuck you, he isn’t going to help you.” 
Now Marvel is saying, “This is who you’re throwing under the bus? Who you’re tossing into prison like he doesn’t mean anything? Who you demonize regularly? Well fuck you, he’s going to save you anyway.”
And as far as the Thor thing, that whole, “If he be worthy part,” yeah, they’re giving the finger to the patriarchy right there saying, “Hey, women are worthy too.”
If these two things were spaced out, I might believe that they were just marketing ploy, but they come so close together at a time where this message is necessary, I can’t help but think that there are people at Marvel who get it and are going with it. 
I mean, if they were willing to fight Hitler during WWII, why not be willing to fight some of the evils of today? 



ONE. FUCKING. MILLION. TIMES. THIS.

So boyfriend and I have been primarily long distance for 5 years and we skype /talk on the phone A LOT but we’ve always texted and when we were younger we did a lot more than we do now. So he knows me much better than anyone and my weird text quirks and now he’s analyzing the difference between when I say “okay” “okay.” and “ok”. Which are VERY different. Anyway, here is what that means according to my boyfriend: 

Boyfriend: “Okay” means okay I don’t have much to say but it’s not a problem.
Boyfriend: “Okay.” means either “I don’t have anything to say and this conversation is over, OR i have something I could say but it’ll make you mad so I’m not going to and this conversation is over.”
Boyfriend: and ok is “I’m mad at you now” or “I’m very distracted”. 

WHO KNEW?

And don’t ever forget the universal “k” which always means either, “you have fucked up royally” or “you mean nothing to me.”

The phrase “old sport” is said 55 times during the movie; all but four of those times are delivered by Leonardo DiCaprio. Of the four not said by DiCaprio, two are delivered by Joel Edgerton, one by Steve Bisley and one by Callan McAuliffe.

(Not so) friendly reminder that Sirius could have honestly escaped at any time and he probably stayed in Azkaban because he felt as though he had nothing. James and Lily were dead, Peter betrayed them, Remus distrusted him, his family hated him, Harry couldn’t be with him…in fact, Sirius only broke out when he realized that somebody (Harry) needed his help.
