J. R. R. Tolkien on escapism in “The Lord of the Rings” (x)

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape?…If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!” 

-J.R.R. Tolkien

How to know which boy you like:

1. Get very drunk

2. You will cry about the boy you like

Apparently the boy I like is pasta. This comes as no surprise.

I think the most important thing in life is self-love, because if you don’t have self-love, and respect for everything about your own body, your own soul, your own capsule, then how can you have an authentic relationship with anyone else?

I’m officially naming this award season “the year stars stopped giving a fuck”

Far be it for me to dispute Cate Blanchett, or the larger point she’s making, but the guys are all wearing the same thing.  If the camera were to do that to the guys, it’d just be black pants over… and over…. and over…

I agree. In this particular case, it’s apples and oranges. Tuxes versus gowns. Photocopies versus unique work. Perhaps their real foul was not running the shot by her before hand.

I would like to point out, though, the salacious nature of the slow pan up a woman’s body. In this particular case, detail isn’t usually put on the hem of a dress (because no one wants to see hand beading or embroidery get dirty or ripped out by an errant stiletto), and a full-body shot would be better to showcase the drape and design of these beautiful gowns like in the fashion plate glossies. Starting at the bottom and slowly panning up dehumanizes women because you don’t see their faces until you’ve seen the rest of their bodies. Their identities don’t matter.

That’s a really good point, thank you.
