Favorite Movie Soundtracks: [1/?] Scott Pilgrim vs. The World"Scott, if your life had a face I would punch it."
Ivy’s favorite comic book characters ☇ Zatanna Zatara (Zatanna)Every night I got on stage and perform the most amazing magic show that anyone in this or any other dimension has ever seen. Not just card and rope tricks, but actual feats of sorcery. Whether or not the audience chooses to believe what they are seeing is beside the point. I’m out there calling down thunder and lightning, making the run backward, turning the occasional heckler into a warthog. Because this is my territory. Spells, Hocus Pocus, demons. It’s meat and drink to me.

"Why do you want this job?"
Because under capitalism I am forced to sell my labor in order to subsist.
[Gifset: Wyatt Cenac, a brown comedian, speaks on a stage, he says “This happened when they were making The Hobbit. They needed to cast background actors, specifically background hobbits.
So they had an open casting call and this Indian woman showed up, and she wanted to be one of the background hobbits. Presumably because she was tiny with giant feet. She showed up to the casting call, and they turned her away. They said “No, you can’t be in this movie, because you are to brown to be a hobbit.”
Now I’m gonna repeat that for you. Somebody told a real-life woman that her skin was too brown to play an imaginary creature. That basically in the whole fictional world of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, where you have dragons, and trolls, and talking trees, where you draw the line, whee imagination is capped out, is a brown hobbit.”]
Like fiery eyeball thing, no problem. But don’t even try to imagine a Samoan elf. (x)
"where imagination is capped out, is a brown hobbit."
Not to detract from Wyatt Cenac’s point, because it is definitely the most important issue at hand here, but shame on Peter Jackson even more because the Harfoot Hobbits were described by Tolkien as having brown skin:
“The Harfoots were browner of skin, smaller, and shorter, and they were beardless and bootless, their hands and feet were neat and nimble and they preferred highlands and hillsides.”
-J.R.R. Tolkien “Concerning Hobbits”
Reblogging again for the quote proving that brown hobbits are CANON Tolkien. Also, for SilverSarcasm’s text description of the lines being said in the gifs. Though I agree with bathsabbath: even if brown hobbits weren’t already canon (even if there are evidently fans—and producers—who were oblivious to this), it’s just silly (as well as racist) to claim that a brown hobbit is somehow more of a challenge to the imagination than a fiery eyeball thing, or a ring that can make you invisible and whatever.

When Joe pulls his hand out of the mouth, it appears to be missing, causing Anya to scream. He then pops his hand out of his sleeve and laughs. Hepburn’s shriek was not acting— Peck decided to pull a gag he had once seen Red Skelton do, and did not tell his co-star beforehand.
Sonia Sotomayor is my hero.
