"Is that all you do Mr. Potts, invent things?"
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)
love love love waking up covered in sweat after having nightmares featuring the piece of shit who raped you.
lol no he didn’t but i was scared he was. i’m sure he saw me.
A couple weeks prior to this, this same guy and his wife caught a rabbit in their backyard trap. They always drive the bunny out to the field across the road and let it go there. So I walk over with some shredded lettuce in hand to give to the bunny because it was freaking out and I hate seeing animals scared like that. Just as I approach the trap, the lady slides open her screen door and says, “He HAS food already. My husband is sick with pneumonia, that’s why he’s not taking him to the field today.” So I explain that that’s fine, I just wanted to give it some lettuce. No harm, right? She must have felt like I thought badly of them because after I walked away, I see her car leaving the driveway and the bunny trap was gone. like jeeeezzzzzus I didn’t even SAY anything about the trap! I didn’t accuse anyone of being inhumane or anything. They’re strange so that’s why I thought for sure I was gonna have the cops called on me.
also, i would never punch you in the face. you’re too nice.
This is one of the most enigmatic figures, in a way, in all of Fellini because she tempts, she taunts, she leads people on, she’s full of some kind of slightly spurious joy of living.
Critic and film historian Richard Schickel on Anita Ekberg’s character, Sylvia, in La Dolce Vita (1960).
god, i always remember this photo
and it’s the absolute truth.
"In the midst of an epidemic of sexual violence, our country has no public space for survivors to heal. There is no public process for survivors to rebuild a connection to their community that has been devastated by the violence and violation of rape. There is little national recognition of the overwhelming epidemic of rape and the need for our country to find an end. A history remembered is less likely to be repeated. An epidemic recognized is less likely to continue. We need to honor survivors living with the memory of sexual violence today, so that this violence will not be repeated in future generations. We would like to see our temporary gesture honoring survivors become a permanent monument, testament and promise to future generations, that, as a country, we are committed to ending rape." (x)
a guy came up to me at the movies today to buy tickets and he goes “You’re the girl who likes the old movies. North by Northwest, you said. I remember!”
I think I said that to him in short conversation over a year ago.
how did he remember me???? god i need to leave that place.
Now I am tired but resolute
That I’d rather be striving than settled
Oh, I’d rather be moving than static
Oh, I’d rather be by your side
Lissie - They All Want You
You said I was different; stood in a class of my own
You said you’d follow me home
But here I am all alone
