I feel that anyone who believes Romeo & Juliet is about some kind of Great and Timeless Love TM* needs to see this.

WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THIS TODAY IN MY SHAKESPEARE CLASS. 

If you go and actually read what Romeo says to Benvolio in the first scene, you will realize that he is only upset because HE WANTED ROSALINE’S BODY AND SHE SAID NO AND SO ROMEO WAS MOPING AND PITCHING A FIT ABOUT IT. Then, the second he lays eyes on Juliet, he’s basically saying

During the balcony scene, Romeo talks about how he scaled the wall of the garden to see Juliet. That is not romantic. That is disrespectful to her. This is a private area of the Capulet home, and Capulet built the wall around it to protect his daughter. This was a time when a woman’s virtue was the most important thing she owned. If Juliet was found with a man in this very private part of her home, everyone would think she was no longer a virgin, her reputation would be ruined, and it would be much harder, if not impossible, for her father to make a good marriage.

Speaking of good marriages, Count Paris is seen as the bad guy because he “comes between” Romeo and Juliet. Capulet had arranged for Paris to marry Juliet in 2 years time, when she would be 16, in a time when most women were already married and mothers by the time they were Juliet’s age at (almost but not quite) 14. Most fathers would have already had their daughters married by now, but he wants to wait two more years AND PARIS IS OKAY WITH THAT. Not only that, but Paris is young (her father could have had her married to a 60 year old man), titled (he’s a fucking Count), wealthy (again, he’s a count, which means Juliet will have financial stability), and, from what we see of him, he is a very good guy. Capulet could have done a LOT worse in choosing his son-in-law.

Finally, here’s something to consider: Juliet was 13, Romeo was 17. Their relationship lasted 3 days, defied their parents, and ended in the deaths of 6 people.

If I ever hear you say that Romeo and Juliet is the greatest love story ever told, I will bitch slap you.

That is all.

THANK YOU! SOMEBODY FINALLY PUT IT IN WORDS FOR ME

It wasn’t a romance. Shakespeare never wrote romances. It was a fucking tragedy you dumb cunts.

Amazing Kitten Helps Artist Girl With Autism

Looking at little Iris Halmshaw’s photographs, you wouldn’t think that she was any different than any other 4-year-old little girl. And yet, she is. Iris is on the autism spectrum. The four-year-old girl rarely speaks and has great trouble with interacting with others, but expresses herself through movement and art.
Iris loves to paint. She does so with intense focus and concentration.
Since her diagnosis in 2012, witht he help of many experts, her parents were able to learn about how to help their daughter. Iris changed dramatically in just a short period of time. Although they still have a long way to go with her, they’re having more good days than bad ones. Aside from painting, spending time with her adorable guardian, Thula, a Maine Coon kitten helps her live life more fully.
Thula joins in with every activity, helping keep Iris interested and engaged. Iris’ mom, Arabella, describes Thula as a constant source of amusement and joy even on a grey day.

Check out Iris’ website to see more of her artwork or Follow the Little Miss Masterpiece and her best friend, Thula on Facebook.

I can’t believe that this is stop-motion.

I CAN’T UNDERSTAND FUCKING STOP-MOTION THOSE FINGERS SHOULD FALL RIGHT OFF BUT NO THEY SUPPORT THEMSELVES BEAUTIFULLY
WHAT THE ACTUALLY FUCK STOP MOTION

The fingers are being supported by armature wire. Virtually all stop motion puppets have some variety of this going on underneath it:
Given  the proportions of Burton’s creations, the armatures underneath his puppets are probably custom-made.
What you’re also looking at is a ton of replacement animation on that teddy bear. Instead of actually tearing open the bear model, someone, or a few people, carefully crafted a handful of that specific bear at various stages of being cut open. If you look closely, the slab it’s on moves slightly, which gives itself away.
Also, Jack’s speaking is done through replacement animation. 

Stop motion utterly fascinates me.

GOD BLESS YOU

THIS IS THE THING I DONT GET ABOUT STOP MOTION
YOU HAVE TO PHYSICALLY MOVE THE DOLLS WITH UR HANDS AND REPLACE THEIR FACES //HOW DO YOU KEEP THEM IN THE SAME SPOT??????//


stop motion people are crazy


One of the best movies ever. Stop motion will always be a preference over cgi, probably just because I grew up  watching so many.
