being smart has never stopped me from being a complete fucking idiot

Somehow it feels like tumblr is accidentally the perfect social media site, because none of the things that I love about it make sense as features the way we use them. Tags are for organization, but we also use them to have our little thoughts in without raising them to the status of main text. The queue makes sense for keeping a steady stream of Content going if you’re trying to Build a Social Media Presence, but really we use it just to bank posts we want to reblog without flooding everyone else’s dash. You can’t see how many followers anyone else has, which I just have to assume was an oversight because it flies in the face of everything about social media, and it’s great because you can never quantify anyone’s Influence so everyone’s essentially on the same level. There’s no way they planned for giffing to become such a Thing, because before tumblr, gifs were practically relics of the early internet days, a novelty, usually kind of tacky, and now they’ve become a sort of folk art form. You can reblog an entire conversation, not just a single post, so there’s a whole genre of humor that exists here that can’t really propagate like that on any other social platform. Honestly this website is just a little freak of nature that cannot possibly have been intended, and that’s why no media company has been able to figure out what to do with it, because it makes no sense within the larger social media ecosystem. I love it.

Whenever I see an Ivan Aivazovski painting the sea monster in me goes absolutely feral

I see this and I’ve never wanted to sink a ship so much in my life I’m biting through wood as we speak

God if I saw this in person I’d straight up start slithering. Start writhing

“But [Tumblr’s] value, of course, is more than just what it isn’t, and what it points away from. Despite all the drama and discourse lurking in its corners, it’s easy to make your own Tumblr life as simple and as happy as you want it to be. There are no algorithmic threats lurking around every corner, no onslaught of promoted posts from politicians or influencers. More than anything else, Tumblr in 2020 is a self-sustaining ecosystem. It’s a semi-sealed and increasingly fertile terrarium, a nigh-impossible perpetual-motion machine of a platform going productively psychotic in its isolation.”

I just finished LOTR

Men of Rohan: The glories of war are only a means to an end. All I desire is the saftey of my people and peace for my country.

Eowyn: I want to murder orcs so badly it is making me physically ill.

Eowyn, while holding Faramir’s hand and making eye contact with him: I am in love with a noble, strong, wise, but most of all kind man.

Faramir, nodding: Who wouldnt fall in love with Aragorn.

Also, this isnt like a fun headcannon this is damn near a quotation. Eowyn was literally holding the dudes hands and staring into his eyes professing her love and the dumbass thought she was talking about Aragorn. He responded along the lines of “But Aragorn wont be back from the black gate for like a week, so in the meantime its nice to hang out and just look at how pretty you are”

I know its a meme but they really are the epitome of “Couple that shares one collective brain cell”

Glaladriel: Aragorn why are there orcs in lothlorien who have you brought me this time I swear to god if you keep dragging trouble in- *she turns and sees the four hobbits, dwarf, and baby elf*

Galadriel: Nevermind I love them have some presents. 

Galadriel holding Gimli by the armpits: Babie..

Gandalf: *Accidentally knocks over a glass of milk*

Gandalf: …

Gandalf: Somehow I am certain this is Peregrin Took’s fault.

Hobbit Cop: You leave me no choice but to arrest you

Samwise “Big Dick” Gamgee: Lol do it then

Aragorn: We come to speak on beha-

Sauron’s Emmissary: I am very evil

Aragorn: Okay. Well, we come to nego-

Sauron’s Emmissary: I would totally kick your ass if my boss would let me

Aragorn: Look we-

Sauron’s Emmissary: Im so evil I don’t even have lips anymore

So which Pride and Prejudice should you watch?

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019


(Disclaimer: They’re all wonderful in their own way.)

BBC Mini Series from 1995:


  • The most realistic of the options at hand
  • Gives you nearly six hours to give the story the time it deserves
  • Has the time to give you all of the characters without feeling rushed
  • The characters are adorable (or annoying depending on needs Mr. Collins), but they aren’t godlike. It’s great to see real people on screen
  • You actually get to see Lydia and Mr. Wickham hiding from their family which I don’t see in any other adaptation?
  • More time is dedicated to Mr. Darcy’s point of view
  • Mrs. Bennet is perfect
  • Collin Firth (according to fandom)


  • I personally have an issue with some the music even though its still admittedly good
  • It does take about six hours to get through, though you can take a break between each episode
  • If you’re looking for fluff, this is the least fluffy version of the lot
  • Probably has the most muted colors of the three, but it’s also from 1995 so…

Pride and Prejudice 2005 (with Keira Knightley)


  • Talk about a bi dream world
  • This is definitely the fluffy one
  • Probably the easiest one to sit down and watch all at once as it is a movie
  • Elizabeth walking across a field to meet Darcy where he proposes is such a dream sequence
  • It flows rather nicely as a story and certainly does the story justice for the time its given
  • Keira Knightley is a wonderful actress in my opinion


  • The music is rather repetitive, you could replace the soundtrack with one song and be close to the current one
  • Probably goes the least in depth of the three
  • Kitty and Mary don’t get as much focus as they deserve
  • You don’t get quite the sense that a bunch of time is passing
  • Feels much less real than the other two

Lizzie Bennet Diaries (Youtube)


  • Definitely the easiest to watch if you only have a  few minutes here and there
  • This is a thoroughly modern version, so keep that in mine

  • Stays loyal to the story while making it modern. There’s no question that this is Pride and Prejudice

  • Charlotte is fucking adorable

  • Lydia has an amazing character arc that fits in a more modern sense and is PERFECT

  • Georgiana is the cutest thing I have ever seen

  • Lizzie encompasses the young adult in this day and age

  • I think they all have Twitters which is really neat?

  • Fitzwilliam is a joy


  • There are several characters you never get to meet like her mother and father, only second hand
  • It is very Lizzie centric (which I like), and that’s obvious, but it means that you get more of her than you will than in any other adaptation and less of everyone else

  • Kitty does not exist

  • Mary does exist, but as a cousin rather than a sister (because most people don’t have 5 kids in this day and age)

I honestly can’t speak highly enough of any of these, especially the Lizzie Bennet Diaries which is just such a unique take on the series.
