People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any

  • Romeo: I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing
  • Juliet: I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself
  • --
  • Romeo: We should kiss right now at this party
  • Juliet: No that is a super dumb idea
  • Romeo: *kisses her anyway*
  • Juliet: That was dumb of you
  • --
  • Romeo: We should get married right now
  • Juliet: We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?
  • Romeo: Like tomorrow?
  • Juliet: Sure, fine.
  • --
  • Juliet: We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.
  • Romeo: Right.
  • Romeo: It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.
  • --
  • Juliet: Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.
  • Romeo: *immediately kills himself*
  • Juliet: For fucks sake.

You want my phone number? It’s useless. The best way to contact me is to fill a human skull with acorns and vigorously shake it into the night. I will hear you eventually.

This was a beautiful and inspiring love story of our time. I’m not kidding. (She did martial arts and was on a man-saving mission! He ran a secret revolution from his tea shop!)

guys i have to tell u about how great this movie/show is

basically this girl isn’t alice, her name is alice and everyone thinks she’s the first one who comes to wonderland. she isn’t though, but she ends up in wonderland through a series of spoilers and wonderland is FUCKED UP

wonderland is set up that they steal humans from the real world (called oysters) and harvest their ‘pearl’. basically they take these humans and put them in a giant casino where people feel various emotions (ecstasy, dissapointment, terror, etc), and these emotions are harvested.

these emotions are then sold as tea to the civillians of wonderland - to mollify them since everyone hates the government this is how they keep them complacent in the system.

of course the hero (alice) comes in, and basically fucks shit up, saves wonderland, sees her father again, the ‘girl who stole her man’ is humanized, the acting is great, and there is an adorable old knight who is the best comedic relief ever.

this show is the only thing that has come close to the brilliance of the original, and brings in its own individuality

this movie/show is like someone came in and filmed your favourite dreams.

i highly recommend watching this

That. And I also like that they did the “Omg, get this, Alice in Wonderland, but dystopia” without going “Omg, let’s make it all dark and twisted looking”. Which is fine but, it get’s done a lot.

Case in point, the Queen’s super secret police ride hot pink flying flamingo bikes, seen here being hijacked by Hatter and Alice.

Everything in the movie is bright and vibrant, oh, and their Jabberwock actually looks like the jabberwocky:

I love many, many versions of Alice in Wonderland, but Syfy’s is my favourite re-interpretation.

I’ve seen some posts making this guilt trip of how the people who like to dress up as a sugar skull or the Catrina for halloween or whatever is racist and cultural appropriation.

Nah, it’s completely fine, as long as you are not totally ignorant about it or disrespectful.

Sugar skull represents the deceased, in a joyful manner. And the Catrina is just a social critic which became an icon later on for the day of the dead and Mexico. 

It is not offensive to turn this into a costume or an accessory because it already is, so if you want to dress up like sugar skulls on Halloween, do so, but atleast know it’s value.

Be open minded, don’t even hate, and share this rich culture we have with the rest of humanity, chill.

This post is about that eradicating guilt trip and blaming, and turn it into self awareness
