Is it okay that I like this even though it’s an advertisement?
I suppose it’s okay if you also recognize the ironic implications of the largest corporate brand on the planet utilizing the most Orwellian component of modern society to appeal to your cheapest level of sentimentality so that you will continue to be emotionally manipulated into mindlessly consuming its addictive and unhealthy product.
Yeah, I suppose it’s okay then.

“You look like a radioactive tampon… like a banana with a yeast infection.”
Besides the fact that Oskar is supposed to be wearing white clothes only, and I didn’t see his grandma anywhere (which is a bit unfortunate if the screenplay doesn’t include her) this looks pretty good.
MY UNDYING LOVE FOR ARTHUR’S BOOTS. BOOTS.
I only recently noticed that they weren’t oxfords at all
(damn you well-fitting pants you had me fooled).
Damn you pants. I want to be you.
First picture above was stolen off of bennet-7’s “Picspam: Costumes in Inception“ WHICH I TOTALLY RECOMMEND READING AND DROOLING OVER AS I’VE BEEN DOING JUST THAT FOR THE PAST HOUR. I really am in awe of how much research you have put in and a sharp eye you have to have to commentate on the glorious fashion picks in Inception.
Also, interesting fact, Eames ONLY wore paisley in the second dream. The second dream is Arthur’s. So did the all the other men besides Cobb in the Arthur’s dream wore paisley ties. So really, fandom, is Eames the paisley fanatic here?
Tom Hardy really werks it tho gurl.
(Credit also goes to bennet-7 for this one)
So, in A.P. Lit. class we have been reading Jane Eyre for the past three weeks (to my absolute disdain). The story is redundant, over exaggerated, and in the end, ends too cleanly, i.e. I abhor this novel. This will probably bring on some pro-Brontë haters, and to those I say…
Moving on. So, after the day’s worth of monotonous discussion, we moved slightly more off topic: was Rochester simliar to Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights? …Really? A man who keeps a crazed Jamaican woman in his attic a secret and ends up trying to off himself but fails and ends up crippled similar to the tall, dark, brooding wild man who’s life is driven by passion and raw emotion? Really? No. As much as I would love to have a Heathcliff-like character in Jane Eyre, there is no way Rochester lies beyond the “Mediocre” tier of literary characters. To qualify for what I refer to as the “B.A.M.F.” tier, you must be all of the below:
- Somewhat studly (preferably “tall, dark, and handsome”)
- Give off an “I.D.G.A.F.” air
- Have a dark or mysterious past
- Harsher, not gentle or even kind sometimes, even rude is fine
- In some point in the novel/movie/whatever, have a brief moment of vulnerability the makes all the girls gasp and swoon
- Violent, or lack of fear of pain or death
- Poetic and romantic in their own way
- Have some sort of code or rules they abide to, never stray from, and displays their strength or rigidity
So yes, Rochester posses none of these. Maybe the poetic part, but that’s being generous. But I’m not gonna to continue to angst about how much I hate Jane Eyre. Instead, I’m going to present to you my “B.A.M.F.” tier (in no particular order):
Heathcliff (Wuthering Heights)
Mr. (Fitzwilliam) Darcy (Pride & Prejudice)
Javert (Les Misérables)
Tyler Durden (Fight Club)
Patrick Bateman (American Psycho)
Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird)
James Bond (Casino Royale)
Erik (Le Fantôme de l’Opéra)
Sherlock Holmes (A Study in Scarlet)
A brief list, but I would consider these fellas my top ten B.A.M.F.s.
But now I am interested: who are your top 10 literary B.A.M.F.s? :)
one bed for business &one for cuddles.
Clearly, nolanslifeisaverage is our kind of fan. Rock on, Nolan - rock on.
AGREED, devotion well understood

And thigh highs. Together they dominate anything.
Would sell my soul for Sherry Britton’s body.
