Important Opinions on Arbitrary Things

For dinner tonight, just let me dive face first into a Farmers' Market.

People who struggle interpersonally, who seem unhappy, or who get into a lot of conflicts are often advised to adopt the approach of Nonviolent Communication.

This is often not a good idea. Nonviolent Communication is an approach based on refraining…

Oh Billy, you look so small right there…

Superman’s sheer anger over Billy Batson’s situation is a sight to behold. Batman and Robin get away with it because he knows it’s the world’s best internship and that Bruce is willing to put out all the stops to protect him. But Billy? He doesn’t have anyone looking out for him. And that pisses off Superman more than anything.

Seriously, Clark’s face here

He is ready to kick the ass of whoever put this boy in this situation SO HARD

Next page he really lets the Wizard Shazam have it.

Shit, son. I might have to buy this book for those last two panels alone.

When Superman is written well he is an amazing goddamned character.

these few pages are some of my favourite in comic book history. So good. For anyone wondering what the next few pages look like, here you go:

This is a bigger deal than some of you might think, because Superman is one of the heroes in the DC Universe who keeps his secret identity pretty damn secret, because as probably the most powerful and influential person on earth, a lot of people do not wish him well - and would jump at the chance to hold people dear to him as leverage.

Yet, he trusts this poor, scared little kid. To comfort him, and entrust him with his biggest secret - just as Billy did for him.

Superman is just really important, ok?

this for people to truly understand superman

When people ask me why superman is my favorite. This. Stuff like this is why he’s my favorite. It’s his most human moments that make him super to me.

That’s pretty damn good.

WHERE IS THIS FROM? I need this comic in my possession. It looks fairly new, but I don’t think it’s New 52 new. I’ve been so bogged down by the negativity that seems to be fueling all of DC’s executive decisions, but this? This is artistry. This is great! I need this book.

Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner

Speaking of movies, this is basically Inuit Beowulf.

It was written, produced, directed, and acted entirely by Inuit people. I think a lot of people might be interested in Medieval Inuit art and literature, and this is a pretty great example.

You can watch and download the entire trilogy here for free (but donate if you can!!!); Atanarjuat is the first film and takes place around 1000 A.D.-ish. It also won a LOT of awards. Keep in mind: it’s entirely in Inuktitut, with English subtitles.

it’s a stunning movie

I’ve now finished watching the entire trilogy, and I have to say that all three films are mind-blowingly amazing.

Make sure you have a box of tissues, though because they will leave you pretty weepy.

I’ve watched it saturday und it is absolutely fascinating to see ancient inuits through the eyes of modern inuits !

Oh, absolutely! I love how they created the script, with double-checking on the action and the dialogue, and different elders pointing out small inconsistencies like, “Oh, no, they wouldn’t have spoken to each other at that point, it was illegal back then.” I love that they tried to make it as historically accurate as possible.

Video Interviews with the cast are available too.

Additional cool thing: the company that created this trilogy, Isuma, has since transformed their website into an indigenous people’s web TV channel. So what sites like ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, ScrewAttack, and the Escapist are for geeky pursuits, IsumaTV attempting to be for indigenous creators. 

Check them out, they’re pretty cool. 

^^I didn’t know that! Amazing!!

A few years ago the director, Zacharias Kunuk, also made the first documentary to discuss climate change from the perspective of the Inuit, focusing on their own traditional body of knowledge regarding the environment. It’s called Qapirangajuq: Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change and can be found here.

I am absolutely going to watch that, and wanted to reblog so others can have the opportunity to do so. Thank you!

Unexpected good news: I think I can manage to afford classes at the studio I went to through school last fall.

I need to get back into ballet again. My hips are all stiff and achy again like they were pre-ballet and like they never were while I was dancing.
