Good evening! I'm an English English graduate with an interest in all kinds of fun things, and a will to find even more. I reblog whatever I feel like at that moment, including but by no means limited to: Dr Who, Song of Ice and Fire, Homestuck, Pokemon, Avatar TLA/TLK, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Dept Heaven, Whedonverse. Usually not things that specifically ask me to reblog them, though. *****************************************************

The Martin Freeman interview with racist and homophobic comments is here.  (Mod note: I added highlights below)

“When I moved up here this woman I know said, ‘Ooh! There are a lot of whiteys up there’, and I said, ‘I love white people; I’ve no problem with them at all.”
The idea was that I was going to complain because there weren’t enough blues dances out here; not enough ragga around. But I’m not bothered by it.
“Multiculturalism hasn’t and doesn’t help, because rightly or wrongly it polarises people so much,” he continues.
“Racism is one thing ? and I don’t agree with that in any form ? but noticing that there are differences is normal and fine and to be encouraged.
“We’ve reached a state now where it’s, ‘You shouldn’t notice. Why are you noticing he’s got a bomb and has a beard and is Muslim and wants to kill your family?”
“There is no country in the world like this. If all of a sudden all the traffic wardens in Ghana were Welsh, they’d really notice and might not love it? We give ourselves a hard time in this country in a sort of mea culpa way. But if we were that racist, people wouldn’t come. Very simple.”
(Later in the article)
He hasn’t always been a mod purist. “I did have a hip-hop period,” he admits. “I dressed a bit like that in 1990, but after a while I thought, ‘Nah, back to the white Levi’s.’
“I really liked hip-hop until the gangsta rap took over. I come from a time when not every rap record was ‘nigga’ this and ‘nigga’ that; an earlier socially and morally conscious hip-hop sensibility, when it was, ‘Don’t call people nigga’.”
“But now it’s nigga, nigga, nigga, and it’s not funny or interesting politically, artistically or socially. I really don’t like it.”
At this point the conversation switches to the youth of today.
(Later still)
“Talking of which… ‘The funny thing about the acting business is that there are more poofs in it than you can have hot dinners thrown at you,’” he says.
“But no one is out. It’s not so bad here, but in Hollywood ? Jesus Christ. Why don’t they just admit it? No one cares if they’re gay or not. I certainly don’t.
In this so-called liberal industry, no one has the guts to come out because of “the box office”, but someone has to be the first in the firing line.
“Without the suffragettes a lot of women would have thought, ‘Why should we have the vote?’ And I think that the same argument exists today. People should stand up and be counted.”

People were praising his comments about how closeted gay actors should come out (because allegedly it shows how accepting he is?) but as a straight man he really should not be 1. using homophobic slurs or 2. trying to dictate how and when LGBT people come out.
People also tried to claim that because it’s the Daily Mail it must be out of context, but there is no other context for statements like “We’ve reached a state now where it’s, ‘You shouldn’t notice. Why are you noticing he’s got a bomb and has a beard and is Muslim and wants to kill your family?’”
Mod note: That wasn’t Pulitzer Prize-winning journalism/writing by any means, but REGARDLESS, what a fucking mess.  Seriously, wtf?

I tried to like you, Marty. I tried.
But what the fuck is this shit? Why are you okay with tossing “nigga” around like it’s 1843, and telling Black folks what’s okay to do in/with their own culture? How hard is it to censor yourself on something that has nothing to do with you? 
Really. Would it really have been so hard to just say, “I used to like hip-hop until it got a little too intense for my taste.” Is it seriously necessary to go to those extremes? I mean, that’s five fucking times in 2 sentences.
FIVE FUCKING TIMES

And “multiculturalism doesn’t help”… doesn’t help who? The people whose culture is dominant worldwide? No shit. I guess when you’re part of that culture, it’s easy to believe that it doesn’t work. After all, you’re not part of the culture that has to assimilate and give up trying to connect to where they come from. You’re part of the culture that invades and takes over and wrecks everybody’s shit and wonders why they’re mad later on.
I tried, man. I tried.
But fuck this guy.
I will still enjoy the characters he plays, but the next person who crosses my dash talking about how the actor is such a great guy is getting blocked.

And THIS is why I don’t like this fucker.

I’m coming to love Sherlock less and less as the days go by and this is part of the reason.

huh.
well then uh
yeah that’s.  that’s not very okay at all.

I actually don’t see any problem with this. Well, not until the “gay actors should come out” part, anyway, and that’s not all THAT bad. He’s basically saying “ignoring cultural differences doesn’t work, because of how existent they are; homogeneity is bad”, “I find current rap parlance to be pointlessly distasteful, to the detriment of its social and political purpose”, and “more outed high-profile gay people would help to raise awareness and hasten social change”, none of which seems particularly controversial. Yes, some of the word choice (“poofs”) is problematic, but that makes him careless rather than malicious.

We introduced Settlers of Catan to a couple of new friends, and one of them has very steady hands - he built Catan Man early on in the game to intimidate watch over us all.

I have played hundreds of games of Catan, and I’ve never thought to build a Catan Man. This changes today.

My sister has a bearded dragon and they typically eat crickets, but they’ll eat mice occasionally as well. She bought this mouse a week ago and the first day, the bearded dragon put the mouse in his mouth and the mouse squeaked so he spit it out… and he’s never tried to eat it again! Now they’re friends and the mouse sleeps on his back and head and even moved some wood chips over to where the bearded dragon sleeps so he would have a bed too! It’s so cute. 
(I think I died at the cuteness of this! I’d love to give my beardie a mouse friend. He’d probably just eat it though, lol.)

“It had been a perfectly fine day for Mr. Darcy, until the highway robbers pulled him over.
‘Prince Edward? Prince Eric? Hercules? Why did you guys pull me over?’ he asked, lowering his sunglasses.
‘Because,’ panted Prince Eric, looking ragged and wild-eyed, ‘We invested all of our money in the yogurt market, and it crashed and went bankrupt after weasels took over the dairy corporation and replaced all the world’s milk with their own.’”

…Harry had more of Voldemort’s soul in him than Voldemort himself had.


Whoa.  That’s crazy.

This is super cool! Props to whoever made it!

I read “Diary” as “Dairy” and pictured him filled with cheese curds.

Relevant to my interests.
EDIT: Also, *damn*, Ginny basically got the worst Horcrux. She had way more of Voldemort in her than   Harry  ever did.

Reblogging for that edit because… I never considered that.

Which probably also explains why the diary was so powerfull and had so much of his personality.

I always believed that the Diary should have affected Ginny much MORE in the long run than it did. This chart just proves it.

I’m sorry I all I saw was “Ginny had more of Voldemort in her than Harry ever did”


You can always count on harry potter fans to turn someone from intresting to smutty in 10 posts or less.
