My Organized Chaotic Thoughts
Hello there, I am glad to see you here. Please have fun on my silly little vending page, filled with my organized but chaotic thoughts. I sure hope you enjoy your time here.
  • "A white person could write a great character of color, and a man can write a great female character — but ability doesn’t equal intent and execution. Matt Reeves recently exemplified this problem. When Dawn of the Planet of the Apes came out, some noted that the film had exactly two female characters — neither of whom had much screen-time or value in the narrative. It wasn’t on purpose; when asked, Reeves said, “Gosh, I don’t know…it’s sort of a shame that, as you say, that’s sort of true.”

    Like many habitual problems, this comes down to close-mindedness: if no one forces the creative to think outside the box or explain themselves, the practice will continue unchecked. It’s one of the best arguments for the value of diverse creatives — to break out of the habits that unintentionally create women-free or white worlds, reductive characterizations, or Bechdel-failing narratives.

    Hollywood also has to be willing to retain diversity when it is present. As Ursula K. Le Guin wrote when her Earthsea was whitewashed: “With all freedom comes responsibility.”"

    But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…

    An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”

    Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.

    Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.

    "John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

    THESE 16 DOGS ARE HEROES. THEY ARE ALSO PIT BULLS.

    Virtually every dog relishes a loving scratch behind the ears and some sweet, vocal praise. But dogs identified as pit bulls get a bad reputation and a lot less love.

    Try not to cry as you read the full stories behind these heroic pit bulls here.

    i will never accept how under appreciated megamind is

    it is a movie about a villain who succeeds in killing the hero 

    It also has a “nice guy” and the girl is not demonized for not liking him

    he even becomes the actual villain

    can we please destroy this idea that a person has to talk to you every minute of every day to like you

    texting all day is not natural

    force communication all hours of the day is not natural
