I feel things about things. I need somewhere to store them or they might explode out of my face.

4- Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward

5 - Clark Gable & Carole Lombard

(Viv & Larry, Lucy & Desi and Spence & Kate get honourable mentions)

So I went to see The Crucible yesterday with the lovely fear3loathing! Absolutely brilliant. We waited around for about fifteen minutes afterwards and then this guy showed up. Got my ticket signed and he was very obliging when I asked for a photograph even though he’d already sort of moved on to other people. He was real nice actually.
(Photo turned out a bit dark because I’m a silly goose and forgot I’d turned the flash off, oops.)

Hooray! I’m so glad I made you two go and that you thought it was brilliant! (And you have this gorgeous photo to show for it. It may be dark but you look great.)
Still waiting on Fear’s report of the event. *nudge nudge*

I… liked the final kiss?
I liked that a lot, both for its significance as one moment of true heartfelt light in what is otherwise a dark conclusion, and for the appropriately magnificent acting of it.
Although, and I’ve explained this more eloquently, but the Abigail could have been hotter. As in, she lacked any real sense of being likable and as an added effect calling into question why Proctor would have anything to do with her, which kind of staggers the depth of his self-torment because at least when I read it I liked Abigail only to lose that as the story progressed. From the start she seemed villainous, when I think that she could have been played more attractively and sympathetically.

Wherever perfectionism is driving, shame is riding shotgun. Perfectionism is not about healthy striving, which you see all the time in successful leaders, it’s not about trying to set goals and being the best we can be, perfectionism is basically a cognitive behavioral process that says if I look perfect, work perfect, and do everything perfectly, I can avoid shame, ridicule, and criticism. It’s a defense mechanism.

"Why Doing Awesome Work Means Making Yourself Vulnerable"

So, I’ve been waiting for someone to explain this extremely simple concept to me my entire life.

Jason Momoa and Manu Bennett at Florida Super Con

Those two are both Maori, right? And they are goofily pulling semi-haka-referential moves in these photos, right?

Jason Momoa is Hawaiian, raised in Iowa. Manu Bennet is Australian/Maori (Ngāti Kahungunu and Te Arawa, which is tangentially related to my Iwi).

Manu in particular is referring some classic intimidation poses, especially the tongue (A lot of Maori tribes have a cool genetic trait where the connective skin underneath their tongue is much smaller, or not there at all, to further the intimidation. Mine goes out super far!), and Jason could be doing the same, or referring to native Hawaiian intimidation poses, which I am not familiar with.

A lot of the pacific island cultures are connected and have their own Hakas, Samoan, Fijian, Vanuatan, Tongan and more, all with different names. The one Manu is most likely referencing is Ka Mate, Te Rauparaha’s Haka (also my Iwi/tribe!), the most well known one, which looks like this.

This has been your daily dose of OH MY GOD SOMEONE IS TALKING ABOUT MY TINY COUNTRY LET ME IMMEDIATELY TELL YOU EVERYTHING I KNOW.
