Before and After Video Effects – Movies
Let us take a moment to appreciate all the effects people who create these things and the actors who make you believe them.
Wow, it’s so hard to understand why a woman-written comic about a female superhero who wears a sensible costume, writes fanfic, and stuffs her face with tasty gyros is so popular and trendy, while a cover for a forthcoming male-written book that portrays its female superhero as sexxily posing for porn sexxx in a suit that clings to every anatomical feature of her 22-inch waist and ass is widely derided. I mean, the thing is that it’s just really mysterious. It’s like how audiences say they’re interested in Black Panther and Ms. Marvel movies, when really what they want is even more white male superheroes. People are so confusing!

One of the biggest stories in comics and pop culture over the summer was from Marvel Comics showing their efforts in creating diverse characters. Much to a lot of fans dismay,they made Thor a woman and Captain America a black man. Sam Wilson aka The Falcon is now officially Captain America. While working today through my anger at the Ferguson, MO story which is still unfolding…I wondered what Sam would do if he were a real person. So, I did this image to deal with the madness.
Whether it be fanfiction, original stories, drabbles, songs, poems, books, or anything that has to do with creative words, then reblog. Let’s gather all the writers of Tumblr together.
That’s so me right now. I’m staring at my screen like, how do I story?
This is really embarrassing (and probably a little inappropriate), but sometimes the only thing that gets me through all of this Ferguson bullshit is thinking about Captain America (like moreso than usual).
It’s not inappropriate. Fiction helps us to deal with real life. Sometimes it puts things in abstract terms so that we’re able to understand things better. Steve would never support the police bullshit going down in Ferguson, because we saw how he feels about brutal “protection” in Winter Soldier. He’s idealistic, sure, but it’s more out of optimism than of ignorance.
Today is the feast day of Saint Stephen the 1st of Hungary, who was born in 1000 AD. He was the last Grand King of Hungary and converted the Hungarian people to from Paganism to Catholicism. During his reign Hungary experienced many years of prosperity and peace, as Hungary became a popular trade route and Stephen practiced an active foreign policy. Hungarian folk tales today celebrate Stephen’s good decision making skills and his ability to judge fairly and unbiased.
The 20th is celebrated for birth of the Hungarian constitution, the foundation of the kingdom of Hungary, the saint day of St Stephen, and the consecration of bread. Fireworks are held all over the country on the 19th and again on Stephen’s feast day, this is also when the new bread gets blessed. In Budapest, Szent István’s holy right hand (which has a very long and interesting history) is paraded around his Basilica while surrounded by a holy procession. Both the 19th and the 20th are National Holidays in Hungary so the Hungarian people can be sure to celebrate properly. Saint Stephen and his hand are pictured above.
