National Anthem, Lana Del Rey (Demo)
This is better than the original. So much.
The strange thing about television is that it doesn’t tell you everything. It shows you everything about life for nothing, but the true mysteries remain. Perhaps it’s in the nature of television. Just waves in space.
The struggle of being identifiable to others…
EVEN WHEN I’M UNIQUE, THE PEOPLE DON’T GET ME. THEY DON’T GET ME.
#this show took some turns down some suspect alleys along the way but #as manifestos go the ‘shared power’ theme running through this scene TAKES SOME F*CKING BEATNG #a giant ‘screw you’ to the Batman-esque Saviour complex running though most dude-focussed superhero franchises #’it’s me and only me who must save the helpless!’ vs ‘HERE TAKE THIS - AND USE IT TO SAVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS’ #you don’t hide power and hoard power and swoop in to impose your power on others to ‘save’ them #you share it #you teach it #’are you ready to be strong?’ #[i’m not crying YOU’RE crying] (via harrietvane)

Are you Team Peeta or Team Gale?
Yeah, but Catching Fire (the book) wasn’t about any of this, and it disappointed me. It was all about Katniss forgetting that she’s the most badass motherfucker in Panem so she could fret about which boy liked her the most. After the phenomenal Hunger Games, I expected so much more from its sequel, and I was sadly smacked about the face with the reality that I’m apparently not in its target demo.
Still, I’m so happy that a generation is seeing and reading it as a call to arms. That’s amazing.
philfiguresthat said: SAY SOMETHING TO SOMEONE IMPORTANT THERE! That’s NOT okay.
I have turned stuff into them, but they don’t do anything about it. I wish I could just rip his balls off instead.
Maybe that’d work.
MOVIE STILL OF THE DAY - THE GREAT GATSBY (2013)
Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” is the best original song for a movie…ever.
(I don’t really care that this is the most ridiculously subjective “Movie Still of the Day” to date…Lana trumps all.)
Amber Riley’s shares her truth…powerful visibility.
thank you Amber.
I absolutely love her and this magnifies that love
FUck yeah. I needed to hear this.
