Leigh Whannell & James Wan (Saw Creators) new movie idea?
Horror filmmaking, it doesn’t get the kind of recognition I feel like it [deserves] because there’s a lot of craft involved, and it’s not just about someone jumping out with a knife and then the music goes all crazy and nuts, right? And your actors [are] screaming away. It’s not just about that. I think to create a genuine, creepy, suspenseful movie, takes a lot of craft. - James Wan
I’m like 25% funny and 85% bad at math

Lupita Nyong’o Named People’s “Most Beautiful Person”!
"I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin. I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin…finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume, it was something that I just had to be…and what my mother meant when she said you can’t eat beauty was that you can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What does sustain us… what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty enflames the heart and enchants the soul…and so I hope that my presence on your screens and in the magazines may lead you, young girl, on a similar journey. That you will feel the validation of your external beauty but also get to the deeper business of being beautiful inside. There is no shade in that beauty" (from her acceptance speech for Breakthrough Performance Award at the 7th annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon).

Remember when Romney lost the election so somebody created White People Mourning Romney and collected various people crying over Romney’s loss?
Still so funny.
alicemurmurs asked: What is a white person exactly? because I am mutt but I look pure white on the outside with brunette hair and brown eyes...I mean I'm a mix of Scottish, Swedish, Arabic, and Italian! I don't really know what I would call myself.
Looks like you call yourself white.
HAHAHAHAHA! Well yeah I’m going to call myself white when I don’t know what else I’d call myself! should I just call myself a mutt then?
Hi. White-passing WOC here. It’s just my two cents but PLEASE don’t call yourself a mutt. The term is kind of degrading.
I just refer to myself as mixed, plain and simple. If a situation calls for me to announce being white-passing then I will, but for the most part I just call myself mixed.
Well according to POC I’m just white… my dad is almost full Italian and he is dark! he does have ARABIAN in him too though…but eh, if they don’t like me because of my skin who needs them.
I’m seriously doubting your claims now you have started referring to yourself and your Father as “Arabian”. I’m guessing your father is Southern Italian? (Only a guess though) yes Southern Italians can be quite dark skinned, but they are still white. I don’t know how many times I’m going to have to say this, but RACE IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT. It is not a biological classification. Southern Italians are racialised as white, (at least in Europe where I live and honestly no offence but anyone who attempts to argue with me has no understanding of race at all). So if your father is a dark skinned Southern Italian he is white and so are you. Stop making an ass out of yourself.
ok yeah southern italy was colonised by arabs between the 800s and 1200s *but* italy has been separated from the arab world politically and culturally for centuries and any genetic arab lineage in italy doesn’t mean people can say they are racially arab seeing as southern europeans have actively gone to great lengths to remove and cover up just how influential the arabs were on their culture and history. for example, Malta’s language is literally an arabic fucking dialect yet people still label them as ‘european’ and look down on the suggestion that they are part of the arab world…
so, just cos your dad is dark skinned and could possibly have distant arab lineage from centuries ago, doesn’t mean you can say you are part “arabian” … (p.s. don’t say ‘arabian’ either, it’s just ‘arab’…)
like you can’t say you have lived the experiences of arabs in the west, for example. it reminds me of when white people say they are part cherokee princess or whatever shit in defence of wearing head-dresses on hallowe’en…
