Someone You’d Admire | Fleet Foxes
#fitz is my favorite#because fitz is in fact a lion#he can roll around and purr and protect his pride#he can smile wryly or smirk#that scary smile he has in the hub is scary for a reason#it’s the smile of a man who’s so used to people underestimating him and ignoring him#thinking he’s one note and useless#but he’s not and he KNOWS it#so he’s arrogant and brash and loud so people notice him#he and ward are foils in all the right ways#fitz is given opportunities to thrive and smile#and he does#but only because he’s surrounded by the right people#but he’s so fiercely loyal and brash that if you bare one wrong tooth#he’ll pounce and claw#leo fitz isn’t darkness or sadness#he’s a shadow#specifically he’s jemma’s shadow#but he’s becoming the TEAM’S shadow#because he’s brilliant and important but overestimates himself sometimes#and it bites him in the ass#so in the meanwhile he’ll just keep trying and keep failing and keeping trying some more#until the day he succeeds#but until that day comes he’s a ticking time bomb waiting for the fuse to ignite (via leopoldfitz)
get out your VCR’s it’s time to watch The Prince of Egypt. or you can watch it here.
please don’t watch exodus: gods and kings because it’s icky and racist. you deserve better. you deserve the prince of egypt.
It is safe to say that I will not be going to watch the weird gross whitewashing mess that is Exodous…
I heard about this the other day and it’s honestly more fucked up than if they’d just whitewashed the whole cast
But no, POC people are allowed to exist…but they don’t get to be lead characters or heroes or anything they can just be the silent servants of the white main characters instead
SO MUCH HATE FOR THIS MOVIE
In addition to all of the above.
I work in market research and on the weekends we have people preview movies and get their opinions on the previews, and Exodus is one of the film previews we’ve been showing. I am a HUGE FAN of Prince of Egypt. What I found interesting was this one particular similarity: during the plagues scene in PoE, there’s a clip where you just see this shadow of darkness fall over the sphinx and all of the temples and structures. It’s very dramatic and quite beautiful actually. In the preview for Exodus: Gods and Kings, they actually have basically a live-action version of the same exact clip, the same angles and everything. Like they watched PoE and were like, “That’s cool, let’s do that.”
Prince of Egypt may not be a perfect representation of the Bible story but it is a beautifully animated movie with stunning imagery and impeccable music which includes singing in Hebrew.
Here are some more reasons PoE was amazing:
- Ofra Haza, the voice actress of the character Yocheved, recorded her song in 17 different languages, which all incorporated the Hebrew parts in the song.
- God’s voice was mainly supplied by Val Kilmer, but included every other major actor or actress in the film whispering the lines along with him. You don’t need to be religious to think that having a bunch of simultaneously be God’s voice is beautifully symbolic.
- Val Kilmer also voice Moses and again, there’s meaning there in the idea of allowing God to work through you.
- The production team conferred with almost 600 religious experts in order to make the film as accurate as possible (despite some obvious changes for story-telling purposes).
I am not at all in the least bit religious, having had some awful experiences with religion, but Prince of Egypt is a wonderful movie. Please watch that instead of Exodus.
like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.

When The Avengers came out I wanted Clint and Natasha to be secret!married so bad, but now after The Winter Soldier I want it even more because Steve finds out and then his first thought is oh my god I kissed a married woman and he doesn’t know whether or not to confess because it was work-related but his conscience is eating away at him and finally he gives in but then he just can’t because Clint’s laughing so damn hard he can’t even hear himself speaking.
so I was tagged by littlestitchwitch to screenshot my desktop and here it is, thank goodness it’s not the schoolyear or it is so messy, like a million pdfs open and 20 thousand sticky notes messy
I am lazy trash and tag whoever is bored and wants to do it
I’d also like to point out (after reviewing) that my rec list for shows is 3/4 ones from littlestitchwitch because she just might be a cult leader or something
