I’m not saying truck-stop hookers, but I’m not NOT saying it
LOOK IF ANYBODY WANTS TO WRITE THE (HILARIOUS) THING WE AREN’T GOING TO STOP YOU
IS BASICALLY THE POINT HERE
Joss Whedon (x)
What the hell is wrong with you Joss?
That’s … that’s not Tony and Steve at all.
CA:TWS, as a film, was a fantastic exercise in putting genuinely decent and optimistic characters (except for Steve himself, at this point, but we can go into that later) up against a nearly ripped-from-the-headlines plot that distills a lot of this country’s cynicism and negativity, particularly in my age group. More than any of the other MCU films, I think this was aimed directly at us, the people in our late teens and twenties and early thirties who sometimes start crying on the toilet because not only will we never be able to stop working our terrible service-industry jobs, we will also never be able to make a safe and comfortable world for the kids who come after us, or take care of our parents when they need us. On top of all that, we’re in this lame dystopian surveillance society where the government hates us, military force has taken the place of diplomacy and stuff like drone warfare is something we’re supposed to just accept, like it’s not horrifying. It’s a story specifically for my generation to try and find some solidarity with.
Which is a pretty ballsy play for a movie with a main character that’s 95."
Y’all, I truly don’t have enough time on this planet to explain to you how subversive CA:TWS is. Layers on layers of CSPAN debate and Daily Show punditry packed into a 2.5 hour movie about superheroes. We’ll be studying this movie one day in film and culture classes. It is streets ahead.
you know all the stereotypes of Washington with all the “OMG RAIN AND CLOUDS AND COFFEE AND HIPSTERS LOL ITS COLD AND WET THERE”
those make me laugh because while that’s pretty much true on the West Coast
that’s about 1/3 of the entire state guys
you all just don’t know about the East side because we don’t talk about it
A decent amount of Washington is actually Desert. We don’t acknowledge that part of the state.
as a resident of Eastern Washington, I can attest to the validity of this post.
Same for Oregon.
"hey steve, did you see the funny thing? steve? steve?"
Embrace your differences and the qualities about you that you think are weird. Eventually, they’re going to be the only things separating you from everyone else.
