In Australia, “I’m up for that” and “I’m down for that” mean the same thing
Also “it’s just up the road” and “it’s just down the road”
It means the same everywhere else to; you ain’t special. Sit down.

I would kind of like a story where pre-fire Derek Hale was known by almost everyone in town as a really nice boy, straight A student, a good kid. Everyone loved Derek, who used to clean gutters and mow lawns for harried single moms and rickety old people, who once saved a dog from drowning—it was even in the little community paper, the one that’s like 75% ads for local businesses and 25% stiltedly-written human interest stories—and played the baby Jesus in the live-action nativity one year, and smiled the whole time. (At one year old he was a little big for the role, but he was so sweet and happy no one cared, and it was meant to be, since Derek’s a Christmas baby himself.) Derek Hale: the darling of Beacon Hills.
And since most of Beacon Hills doesn’t know all the shit that went down right before he left or since he came back, they just remember Derek Hale as the poor kid who was orphaned and then moved away and then came back when his sister was brutally killed. So there is general outrage when it’s learned that he’s been arrested for his sister’s murder based on the word of the sheriff’s son, who is well known to be a troublemaker and a smartypants. The poor sheriff, so much on his shoulders, he does his best, but the boy does run wild, and he’s gotten away with it for so long—there’s only so much a mother’s death can excuse, God rest her soul.
So then, instead of the usual problem we see where Stiles and Derek start hanging out and they have to worry about Sheriff finding out because of Derek disapproval reasons, in this situation the problem is Stiles. What follows is a lot of frowning and tut-tutting over Talia Hale’s boy falling into the clutches of that bad influence Stiles Stilinski, who even got him arrested one time. That Stiles sure has some nerve, being friends with Derek, after what he did to him. And Derek, well, he’s obviously got the heart of a saint, to forgive him like that. But it’s worrisome, it really is, because Derek might have a few years on Stiles, but it’s common knowledge that Stiles has led the McCall boy astray more than once (the son of an FBI agent, even!), so who knows what he can talk poor, vulnerable Derek into doing.
It’s a scandal.
Oh you KNOW I’m all about this.

Beyoncé's super secret album just dropped this morning, causing quite a stir.In one of the songs, “Flawless” she samples Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's TEDx talk on feminism. In the song she says:
We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller
We say to girls – you can have ambition, but not too much
You should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man
Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important
A marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or for accomplishments,
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are
Feminist: A person who believes in the economic, social and political equality of the sexes.
Americanah was also named one of the ten best books of the year by the New York Times Book Review. I just bought it!
Fun Fact: None of the actors but Gene Wilder knew that the tunnel scene was coming. Like, they had the lines and stuff, but they thought it was just a boat ride. And when the lights came on and he started singing their terror was real
This happened a lot throughout the movie. Which is one of the reasons it’s such a great film. The directors did the same thing when they all saw the inside of the Factory for the first time. They wanted to show the face of pure imagination. To capture it all.
Same thing with the scene where he comes out of the factory to greet them. None of them had gotten to meet Gene beforehand, so when he came out all hobbled on the cane and they had these confused looks on their faces and look actually concerned when he starts to tumble forward? That’s all legit. This whole movie was successful because it fucked with everyone who wasn’t Gene Wilder.You guys know the sad Charlie reaction pic I use so much? That’s another ad lib scene. In rehearsals, gene was a lot calmer, but when they were actually filming he exploded on Peter ostrum (Charlie). That sad expression is genuine. And tht’s what it’s basically my favorite reaction picture ever.
The reason he came out limping and then rolled forward was so that from that point forward nobody could tell if he was lying or telling the truth.
literally none of this movie was scripted they just found a group of people and had them improvise an entire movie as cameras were rolling gene wilder doesn’t even exist you’re still dreaming
