LOOK AT ALL THE EMOTIONS
I literally didnt recognize her
see i think the problem in twilight is not that kristen stewart is a bad actor
bella swan is just an awful character
^^ HERE HERE.
My friend and I have a conspiracy theory, which is that KS read the books, realised Bella has no emotions and is an utterly flat, unobtervant and dull character…and acted her perfectly canonically.
Also, yes, she looks so different here. It’s amazing.
I think that’s actually a fact. well, that and a good, healthy dose of ‘no one hates twilight as much as the cast’
So let me explain this theory for those of you who haven’t heard it before already.
The Great Gatsby is a story of a man that makes his fortune bootlegging and throws countless magnificent parties all in hopes of attracting the attention of his old flame Daisy.
I do actually find this an interesting theory. In a way, I agree with the critic who said that if Fitz had actually wanted him to be black, he just would have said it, but then there’s that strange, not-completely-understandable scene that implies homosexuality without actually stating it, so maybe not. Maybe those interesting, subtle clues aren’t so far-fetched and were intentional.
And wouldn’t that have been an interesting way to do the new film adaptation. I know people would have been in a racist uproar (because god forbid they reinterpret the race of a classic character that has always been assumed to be white), but I would have loved to see it.
Still reading the wonderful Diary of Anais Nin. As such, here are my favorite quotes for the 2nd …eighth? of the book! These selections aren’t so much inspiring as they are beautiful writing (to me).
On a side note; I believe this is post #200!!!!!

“I was upset as a child to discover that we only had one life.”
“[She has] increased the dose of love as the poor addict increases his dose of drugs.”
“…they grappled body to body, breath to breath, tongue against tongue, as if to enclose, enmesh, imprison once and forever…”
“I could not life any longer in an empty world. I must have much to love, much to hate, much to grapple with.”
“Again and again I return to poetry.”
“Anger incites him: fuels him. Anger poisons me.”
“…[she] stopped them an angry way which revealed her love of me. As i f I were sacred.”
“To destroy is easy.”
“I am possessed by a fever for knowledge, experience, and creation.”
“He wills the whole world to fire and floods…”
“Today I feel my past like an unbearable weight…”
“To me the truth is something which cannot be told in a few words… those who simplify the universe only reduce the expansion of its meaning.”
“I could already see how contagious a full life can be.”
“I keep a kind of shell around me, because I want to be loved.”
“…so I cover all this up with understanding, wisdom, interest in others, with my mind’s agility, with my writing… I cover the woman up, to reveal only the artist, the confessor…”
“I want my Dionysian life, drunkenness and passion and chaos; and yet here I am, sitting at a kitchen table and working…”
“For this is the moment when I relive my life in terms of a dream, a myth, an endless story.”

“The old pattern of my life is shattered.”
”To be unhappy is not a sign of weakness”
“I have never seen anyone so withered from within, so dead in life.”
“…an initial shock has shattered my wholeness, that I am like a shattered mirror. Each piece has gone off and developed a life.”
“…writing, for me, is an expanded world, a limitless world, containing all.”
“Her love was brave and virile.”
“The room feels heavy and deeply anchored in the earth.”
“Enter this laboratory of the soul where incidents are refracted into a diary, dissected to prove that everyone of us carries a deforming mirror where he sees himself too small or too large, too fat or too thin… Enter here where one discovers that destiny can be directed… Once the deforming mirror is smashed, there is a possibility of wholeness; there is a possibility of joy.”

Jean Valjean in the first 10 minutes of the movie: I only stole a loaf of bread
literally me for the rest of Les Miserables:
Fun fact! ^This line in Aladdin was a reference to Les Miserables. They had it because the girl who did the voice for Jasmine’s singing, Lea Salonga, played Eponine on broadway and is one of the most famous Eponines ever. She also went on to play Fantine and was the singing voice of Mulan
Lea Salonga has been my favorite singing voice for longer than I’ve known her name. Hello, Miss Saigon. So cool that she was some of my favorite characters too.
parents who try to shelter their children from every little thing that could possibly corrupt them are going to have some fucked up kids
I’ve seen this in action several times, with multiple children. Some become really good people, acknowledging their parents’ crazy and growing above it, but most just become total, utter douchebags.
