AAAAAAAAARRRGGGGHHH, Conservative Party campaigners at the door.
Ed is surprised that they are doing things in Newnham! I recommend salt and holy water.
Yeah, I was surprised too. Labour and the Lib Dems come around all the time, and leave leaflets and newsletters almost weekly, but I think this is the first time I’ve seen the Conservatives campaigning here.
when my friend decides to watch Orphan Black
and then finishes it in one night.
Charles and Erik finally reconcile
The most appropriately Australian way to greet the Prime Minister.
Guess who’s going to see an Avengers/Captain America: The Winter Soldier double bill/midnight screening tonight?
Me, my partner, and shinyshoeshaveyouseenmymoves. That’s who.
“Countless others have come before you, seeking weapons or weaknesses or battle strategies!”
this is one of the truly brilliant things about this show. while most kids’ shows will have good vs evil conflict, atla has a war. a real war, between people, with all the moral greyness and points of view made clear. the fire nation isn’t evil: it’s a repressed country under the strict control of its ruler. we’re shown how history is altered and propaganda is taught as fact, so the people grow up moulded to hate all other nations.
and then we get lines like this, which make us stop and think wait, is what the other nations are doing really right? after all, Ba Sing Se was supposed to be a haven, but turned out to be repressive and full of lies.
in this case we know that Aang is justified, and we trust him to do what’s right because he has such high moral standards. then we get to the finale and all that is challenged again.
it’s just a brilliant show guise.
this show’s fucking flawless, okay? i just have so much love for atla
