I need sleep

“Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining.”

This is an indie rock band with a black lead singer who is a woman, you don’t even know how much this means to me.

Plus they’re from the midwest.

just randomly discovered a catchy lil’ pop tune that’s pumping me up for summer so if you’re into that kinda thing

theguy23 asked: I've heard some criticisms of that Lucy movie here on tumblr. It deals with how they portray Asian Americans in the trailer I guess (through stereotypes). I don't know though. I'm not Asian American so I can't speak for them.

Yeah, when I first saw the post and watched the trailer, I think my eyes were all shiny because it was like “yeah hey female action hero!” But upon a second viewing (through less shiny eyes), I can see where those criticisms have ground. It’s certainly questionable as to how the movie will handle the whole “villainous Asians” bit, and one can only hope that it won’t play out in an uncomfortably racist manner. (Here’s to also hoping the movie itself won’t suck~)

By 13 years-old 53% of girls say they are unhappy with their bodies. When were we happy? Marie C. photographed and interviewed 4-8 year old girls and asked them what they liked about their bodies to find out.

Lucy (2014)

An action film.

With a female lead.

Played by Scarlett Johanssen

With no love interest.

With superpowers.

And Morgan Freeman.

I had no idea how much I wanted this until this moment.

Only kind of a little really excited about this?? The whole “10% of the brain” premise is bunk but still

I also didn’t realize that I wanted this until now

Like, it’d be so cool to see more action heroines done on the same level as Jason Bourne, James Bond, Ethan Hunt….
