Alice Eve sayin’ it like it is



plot twist: carol marcus is putting on a front of being a weak female character the entire movie but at the very end she brutally murders jj abrams and resurrects gene roddenberry from a pool of abrams’ blood. the crowd is ecstatic.







list of female reboot characters who aren’t A) mother of a main character or B) shown in their underwear at least once:
….
………
………….yeah I got nothin’



ANd a reminder that two of the four women in the Reboot aren’t even named within the script. So for those people who are casual fans have no idea that Winona is Winona or Amanda is Amanda.
Instead they are only known by their relationship to their sons and husbands.
Winona is George Kirk’s Sweetheart and Jim Kirk’s Mother
Amanda is Spock’s Mother, and his Father’s Whore.
Ain’t that swell?



#HOLY SHIT #that last comment #I have seen the movie multiple times and I didn’t even #I didn’t even notice that #I HAD TO GO THE TRANSCRIPT AND CTRL+F TO CHECK BECAUSE I ALMOST DIDN’T BELIEVE IT #they didn’t give AMANDA HER NAME #or Winona but they actually TOOK AMANDA’S NAME AWAY #and then KILLED HER #FUCK #FUCK THE WORLD #and they gave Uhura a first name but it was passed between male characters like an object #accidentally dropped by one and greedily picked up by the other #never given freely #EXCUSE ME I NEED TO GO PUNCH SOMETHING



I feel like there’s some really rageworthy meta potential here about how men’s names are important, but women’s names don’t matter at all (unless, as perceptively pointed out above, that name can be used by male characters to signify possession/etc).

#Think about this: we learn both Jim’s grandfathers’ names in that opening scene#neither of whom are present or ever in the movie at all#but not Jim’s mother’s name#even though she’s right there#in the scene#givin’ birth to the main character#And they couldn’t have had George tag on a ”Winona!” to any part of his dialogue?#like obviously the granfathers’ names were relevant for good reason - of course they were#but they could just have easily have mentioned Winona’s name too y’know? (via greenscrewdriver)

Super impressed by any journal article that has the subheading “on the absence of any methodology.” That’s the spirit! An academic style I can get behind.

exeptionally-ordinary:

I say that I “hate people” but really I’m just too lazy to say “My social anxiety makes me feel extremely uncomfortable and awkward around other people therefore I find it difficult to socialize with them.”

I say that I “hate life”, but really, I’m just too lazy to say “The challenges that I am currently facing, combined with my fears about the future are bringing me down, therefore I find it difficult to motivate myself.”

I actually just hate most people tbf

The feeling when you’ve been reading something for ages and it finally all starts slotting into place and making sense and isn’t like wading through mud is incredible. I just wish it didn’t so frequently happen at 4am with a deadline looming come midday and half of an essay left to write.

halp

am looking for a Will Graham + Applesauce gifset. From when Will gets home and Alana is there with Applesauce. And the gifset makes jokes about how Will is ignoring everything Alana says because he’s much more focussed on Applesauce.

May or may not include a comment about the sex thing which Graham ignores because Applesauce.

May not actually be a gifset and just photos. Reckon it was five frames or more? Have found a couple in a similar vein but not the precise one I’m looking for.

Can’t remember who posted it. Got far to overinvolved looking for it for the last half an hour because I’m procrastinating and I should’ve just liked it in the first place and not had this problem. Ho hum.

If you know the one I mean hmu.

Hypocrisy

So fucking powerful.

Hey Hey Ho Ho, it’s not up to working class people to take care of the poor - they’re poor themselves! You wanna help the poor? Stop asking poor people to give money, take the money from the rich! They’re the reason people are poor to begin with.

Fucking smug fucking charities.

You say you want a revolution?

cootedetat:

"Without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement."

Vladimir Lenin, What is to be done? (1902)

Here is a collection of texts (a by no means complete one) that I think are incredibly important to the understanding of Marxism; an understanding of which is a fundamental necessity in intervening into the concrete actuality of the Class struggle toward bringing about the universal emancipation of human kind from the exploitation degradation and humiliation of the Capitalist mode of production; the International Socialist Revolution. Listed in chronological order:

Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses by Louis Althusser (1970)

Dialectical Logic by Evald Ilyenkov (1974)


“With the seizing of the means of production by society production of commodities is done away with, and, simultaneously, the mastery of the product over the producer. Anarchy in social production is replaced by systematic, definite organisation. The struggle for individual existence disappears. Then for the first time man, in a certain sense, is finally marked off from the rest of the animal kingdom, and emerges from mere animal conditions of existence into really human ones. The whole sphere of the conditions of life which environ man, and which have hitherto ruled man, now comes under the dominion and control of man who for the first time becomes the real, conscious lord of nature because he has now become master of his own social organisation. The laws of his own social action, hitherto standing face to face with man as laws of nature foreign to, and dominating him, will then be used with full understanding, and so mastered by him. Man’s own social organisation, hitherto confronting him as a necessity imposed by nature and history, now becomes the result of his own free action. The extraneous objective forces that have hitherto governed history pass under the control of man himself. Only from that time will man himself, with full consciousness, make his own history – only from that time will the social causes set in movement by him have, in the main and in a constantly growing measure, the results intended by him. It is the humanity’s leap from the kingdom of necessity to the kingdom of freedom.
“To accomplish this act of universal emancipation is the historical mission of the modern proletariat. To thoroughly comprehend the historical conditions and thus the very nature of this act, to impart to the now oppressed class a full knowledge of the conditions and of the meaning of the momentous act it is called upon to accomplish, this is the task of the theoretical expression of the proletarian movement, scientific socialism.”
Frederick Engels, Anti-Duhring (1878)
