Any time someone asks me if “I’m too old for that”, I just direct them to Advanced Style.
This is wonderful! Hoping to be one of them if I live long enough.
This is totally my plan.
Lots of cool mushrooms, lichen and fungi I found on my trip to Barataria Preserve

#it hurts me when people compare transformers to PR based on ‘movies with giant robots’ #because even in just the single cinematic convention of the female lead intro shot they’re just speaking different languages #(different film languages and just emotionally) #eg I recall in the 2nd transformers the female lead is (re)introduced in daisy dukes using an up-the-ass camera dolly shot while straddling a motorbike #which pretty much sets the tone for the film maker’s use of the character #and here we have female lead being introduced in a series of walking panning shots dressed for the weather and walking with intention #and then you gets full face shot where mako exhales and shows emotion in a moment alone with no effect on the male lead #it’s her own moment #not serving either the male gaze of the audience nor the male leads narrative at this time #it’s just mako #living #having an emotion #AND THAT’S HOW YOU INTRO A PROTAGONIST #disclaimer: #this is not the only way you intro a protagonist #clothing and gaze-emphasis are both optional and allowed #but they must serve the character and what we need to know about them #not just be a post-it note stuck to the actor saying ‘sexy object’
So basically all these separate posts are kind of combining into my head into this one epic fantasy series with mermaids and knights and dragons and pirates
where all the relevant characters are lesbians.
I’m gonna be listing a bunch of stuff—including these nifty goodies—in the shop in a few minutes!
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Why do straight guys think they are the only people who have ever dealt with the crush-on-a-friend-who-doesn’t-like-you-back thing? People in literally every population that is capable of attraction have at some point liked someone who wasn’t interested. That’s part of life.
