you know what kills me, what really haunts my deepest darkest dreams? harry using lumos at privet drive in prisoner of azkaban to do his homework. WARNER BROTHERS! Harry Potter WAS NOT ALLOWED TO DO MAGIC OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL. THAT’S WHY HE RAN AWAY AFTER BLOWING UP HIS FUCKING AUNT. Do you understand the MAJOR continuity problem in your adaptation of this billion-dollar book series? DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
I always just assumed lumos was like…..such a minor spell that it didn’t really count. Like, what would a muggle really say to someone using it? Nice flash light, dork? Your light saber is broken? Nah. It would look so silly to a muggle they wouldn’t even care.
There will be a PEACEFUL protest/march next Monday August 18 in support of justice for Michael Brown and his community. Starting at 6:30 PM in front of the CNN Center. Please spread the word especially if you won’t be able to be in attendance. Happy Friday
Please signal boost this even if you’re not in Atlanta
“Because no matter how much you stash or how much you steal, you never have enough. No matter how often you go out and rob and fuck people over you always need to get up and do it all again.” - Trainspotting (1996)
The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.
These are some fun fucking facts
I’m so happy
The original picture is Presley’s one true aesthetic.
