Hurled like a dead childhood pet into the uncanny valley’s nastiest toilet.

Reblog not because I agree, but you have to stand up and respect that writing. 

Reblog because this is pretty much me every time I turn my attention back to my email inbox. 

This is an accurate recreation of yesterday, which had me as Jar Jar and Tuesday at the Pit Droid.

I’ll admit I don’t use Tumblr as much as I want to. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like the platform or that I don’t see the value in it. Tumblr continues, despite a handful of competitors trying to get all up in its grill, to occupy a unique space in the online publishing world and much of that has and continues to be defined by the people using it every day. 
So here’s to my third anniversary here. Maybe one day I’ll use it as much as I want to.

Reblog because there are few funnier things than Stewart going on a pizza rant.

" Film has so much to do with perfection, and how differently you can feel about someone at the beginning of the film, and at the end of the film. ” Emma Thompson (x)

I love Emma!

Emma Thompson = an automatic reblog. 

Reblog because it’s Batman Returns and I don’t need another reason.

The Art of the Christmas Truce

Ninety-nine years ago today, something strange happened on the Western Front: It fell silent. World War I had only just erupted that summer, but the fighting had already proven fierce, claiming nearly a million lives. On December 24, 1914, however, an estimated 100,000 soldiers, mainly British and German troops, laid down their guns, left the trenches, and mingled in the frigid cold of No Man’s Land to mark Christmas—an uplifting if surreal moment in an otherwise soul-crushing war.

"All I’d heard for two months in the trenches was the hissing, cracking and whining of bullets in flight, machinegun fire and distant German voices," Alfred Anderson, a British veteran and the last survivor of the Christmas Truce, recalled in 2004. “But there was a dead silence that morning, right across the land as far as you could see. We shouted ‘Merry Christmas’, even though nobody felt merry. The silence ended early in the afternoon and the killing started again. It was a short peace in a terrible war.”
Elsewhere on the Western Front, the celebrations were more exuberant and long-lasting, involving everything from impromptu soccer games to spirited renditions of “Silent Night” to free haircuts by a British machine gunner.
