My favourite part in Order of the Phoenix is when Harry and Sirius are playing hide and seek in the Ministry and Sirius is being silly behind the veil then he jumps out at Harry like “Haha found you!” and then they laugh and high five and go out for ice cream at Fortescue’s.

Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams, and I couldn’t watch a movie of his afterward without thinking of it. I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists out an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event, anything from bottled water and their green room to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rocks bands list their requirement for green M&Ms (which is actually a surprisingly smart thing to do). This is also where a famous environmentalist requires a large gas-guzzling private jet to fly to the event city, but then requires an electric or hybrid car to take said environmentalist to the event venue when in view of the public.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example.

sighs i feel strongly about RT

why are people saying watch rooster teeth instead of jontron like rooster teeth members made a game out of stalking women they thought were hot with the intention of scaring the women because they get bored on their way to work

if i remember correctly, they’d mentioned this “Game” a couple times on twitter at least a year prior to when they actually explained what it was. so it wasn’t a one time thing, it was something they’d done multiple times for AT LEAST a year. people who worked in their office told them several times it was fucked up and disgusting, and they continued to do it.

they first explained it in one of their videos, which was deleted, but here’s a transcript of the conversation. (it’s two guys talking about how fun they think it is to stalk women so be careful if you read it)

a couple days later geoff offered a really bare bones apology which was basically "Uhh Sorry We Told You About This Game, Sorry You Found Out About it. We’re Sorry If It Offended You, So… Haha Yeah" and gavin never actually apologized. he did try to justify it though which was really gross and embarrassing. gavin’s done shit like this in the past though like when he said he would break up with women by ignoring them for days or weeks at a time, even as they got upset.

michael isn’t good about apologizing either, and ray promoted a blog that satirized feministroosterteeth, a blog dedicated to voicing concerns over rt’s behavior which led to that blog getting hate. there’s other stuff too but i don’t have links for everything. i know that both of their behavior has led to people being harassed for speaking out.

i’ve been told they’ve misgendered a trans woman and have recently done this shit, warning for a transmisogynist slur.

they use gendered slurs and ableist slurs pretty frequently in their videos along with #rape jokes. and i’m surprised they haven’t gotten a callout like jontron’s considering the amount of shit they’ve done and i’m even more surprised people will actually try to defend them or justify their actions

I’ve seen these guys on my dash for years, and I’m just now learning about this? Why isn’t this more talked about? Because they scream at video games and it’s funny??

It’s not more talked about bc RT, at heart, are good people (imo).  Yes, the connect the hots thing was fuckin dumb, and of course they’re not exempt bc thats a creepy and awful thing to do.  But like…. what gets me is that everyone always highlights the bad, but never the good?  Like, Geoff just went on a rant recently about how he hated frozen because he felt like the main character was flat and boring and not a good role model for his daughter bc there are so many other more interesting and dimensional main female characters out there.  Like, thats important?  And Ray took people’s comments about how they didn’t like him saying rape in videos so he stopped saying it, and so did the other AH guys with only a few slip ups?

i feel like a lot of people hold internet celebs (and just general people on the internet) up to a high standard of person that doesnt exist.  RT is comprised of human beings who slip up sometimes, but when they do realize they’ve done something wrong, they try to make it better.  Unlike many other internet people (that awful vine guy who raped his ex is coming to mind) who just make fun of the “haters” expressing legit concerns.  

Another thing I always think when RT slips up is, literally, “wow, what a stupid asshole.” bc RT is full of stupid assholes who do stupid shit on the internet all the time (and im sure they would agree with me).  

I feel like, for example with what Miles said, is that that statement was drawn from a lack of knowledge.  And by negatively calling someone out on their lack of knowledge, it makes that person feel guilty.  It made me guilty when I read that, because I remember watching that podcast and just wincing over what he said, but not really thinking anything of it.  But if the world existed in the way that the internet deemed it to exist, there would be good and bad people, and no shades of grey in between.  There would be no knowledge, or growth, or character development.  So by calling someone awful because of one thing they say without allowing for them to grow from it, it denies them the right to a discourse.  I remember when Ray saw an RT secret that said the person didnt watch AH anymore bc of all the rape jokes, and ray was legitimately sorry because of it and WATCHED HIS LANGUAGE.  He did that for the audience and not himself.  He did that so someone (and many other people) would feel like they could watch the content and not feel bad about it.

And Im sure if anyone sees this Im going to start a whole buncha sheet because im “defending” or “justifying” their actions.  You’re right, I am defending them, because I recognize that they’re human beings and arent perfect all the time and I see them as really good people.  I think they’re all extremely kind human beings and they bring a lot of joy to a lot of people and I think if they were awful human beings they would have a lot more shit being brought down on them every day.

Nicki Minaj is not a woman who easily slides into the roles assigned to women in her industry or elsewhere. She’s not polished, she’s not concerned with her reputation, and she’s certainly not fighting for equality among mainstream second-wave feminists. She’s something else, and she’s something equally worth giving credence to: a boundary-breaker, a nasty bitch, a self-proclaimed queen, a self-determined and self-made artist. She’s one of the boys, and she does it with the intent to subvert what it means. She sings about sexy women, about fucking around with different men. She raps about racing ahead in the game, imagines up her own strings of accolades, and rolls with a rap family notorious for dirty rhymes, foul mouths, and disregard for authority and hegemony.

While Beyoncé has expanded feminist discourse by reveling in her role as a mother and wife while also fighting for women’s rights, Minaj has been showing her teeth in her climb to the top of a male-dominated genre. Both, in the process, have expanded our society’s idea of what an empowered women looks like — but Minaj’s feminist credentials still frequently come under fire. To me, it seems like a clear-cut case of respectability politics and mainstreaming of the feminist movement: while feminist writers raved over Beyoncé’s latest album and the undertones of sexuality and empowerment that came with it, many have questioned Minaj’s decisions over the years to subvert beauty norms using her own body, graphically talk dirty in her work, and occasionally declare herself dominant in discourse about other women. (All of these areas of concern, however, didn’t seem to come into play when Queen Bey did the same.)

Norwegian artist Markus Moestue built and rode a three-wheeled dinosaur bicycle across the Bible belt of Norway as a form of protest against religion.  He explained, "It is a protest against the dogmatic religious education of children, and the idea originated from the theme-parks of creationists that teach children that humans and dinosaurs used to live together."

there’s a huge problem in gaming today where people are focusing more on graphics than aethestic, which is really shitty because it leads to all of these awful derivative modern military shooters and games that have no identity. like i don’t really care if you’re able to render the 374th bead of sweat on a grizzled marine’s face, if you don’t have a unique style nobody will remember your game
