“You fool. No man can kill me.”
How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?
Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy
Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.
so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic

this is actually very accurate
Wow, this is always relevant.
Also, how hot was Sisko in the skinny tie and little round glasses? Total DILF.

DS9, “Far Beyond The Stars”
DD: One of the scenes from that episode that struck me is, after Benny finishes the Deep Space Nine story and all the other writers love it, the editor says: “I like the story. It’s good, it’s very good. But you know I can’t print it. Your hero’s a Negro captain. I’m a magazine editor. I’m not a crusader. I’m not here to change the world.”
AB: That sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
DD: Yes, it does!
AB: You’ve heard that?
DD: I hear it often.
AB: That’s what I thought.
DD: That’s almost exactly the conversation we have with some science fiction and fantasy magazine editors today.
AB: In 2013.
DD: And that episode was from 1997 looking back to 1953. Sometimes I feel a bit of despair that things are never going to change. We’ve clearly been having this conversation for a while.
AB: Some things have changed. But again, it’s the substance of what we talk about. Change is what? Every day is change. Every day is movement. If we get locked into the polemic of it all and don’t find a way to integrate these things that we believe in into our lives, that’s another matter. So the complaint will remain some years hence. Because we’re locked in the polemic of it rather than investing in our own lives and implementing what we think is change. It’s the way we live that’s important.

Samurai and cat, live together ("Nekozamurai"-Japanese tv plogram)
Where I can watch this? With subtitles??
I need to see this so badly.
Like… I really do.
"Nekozamurai is a new drama and film series about a wandering ronin samurai tasked to kill a bakeneko or demon cat, but befriends him and becomes his protector instead."

"OM NOM NOM I EAT YOUR FING—zzzzzzz"
Thomas, back when he was still B.B. (I think he was B.B.?) did that in my lap once. And literally fell asleep with my finger still in his mouth.
Yeah, he was B.B., because I thought I was flying to Seattle to pick up Fats. The joke, as they say, was on me.
