The internet is unravelling into a dishevelled shrieking mass of pictures of feelings. I can do that.

spermbanker:

date me to disappoint your parents

Alice that’s not going to work very well for you, you have an amazing academic record, you’re incredibly sweet and polite and you come from a good background.

"The truth is, life is rarely exactly the way we want it to be, and other people often don’t act as we would like them to. Moment to moment, there are aspects of life that we like and others that we don’t. There are always going to be people who disagree with you, people who do things differently, and things that don’t work out."

The Tenth Doctor’s Suit Button Analysis - now in Tumblr-image form!

Because the manner in which the suit is buttoned is important.  No, really.  It is!

In all honesty though, I’m rather impressed that DT took it upon himself to change it up.  Keeping up with these tiniest of details is just another sign of how dedicated he was to Doctor Who.

The list owes much to Unfolded73’s Button Analysis on LiveJournal. As far as I’m aware she was the first to do the analysis back in March 2009 and share it with the world.

For the pedant in us all.

this is amazing. I have genuinely never known an actor care about his buttons. BUT the epic consistency (which must have been a huge hassle) should also be credited to continuity, who’d check that along with his shoelaces, fringe, collar, tie… before every single take.

any/all: orange, yellow, white!

Orange: 6 facts about my home town.

1. We actually know how to treat famous people who just want to do their fucking job or buy some pasta. This is NOT SHARED by tourists. 

2. Teenagers meet at “the block” and take drugs in “the dip”. 

3. Local personalities include Singing Man, Blind Whistling Man, Creepy Shakespeare, Fat Shakespeare and Ghanaian Shakespeare. 

4. Catching a bus out of there is like going to hell, along with a bunch of inexplicably-damned pensioners. There’s a bus company monopoly and the prices are extortionate. 

5. I have had summer and part-time jobs on most of the major streets; I often thought “this is the worst job I will ever have” but was wrong all but once. Each job chipped off a small piece of my soul (except for one job which was THE BEST job I will ever have, probably). These jobs all involved various objects, from polo ponies to toilets to fake Faberge eggs. 

6. Until I was ten, the nearest cinema was over half an hour away. When one opened in town, I think it was to show Titanic. Two other ten-year-olds and I went (it was a 12), along with a nine-year-old little sister and another little sister who’d been 8 for a whole month. We thought we were AMAZING when we got in. 

Yellow: 7 facts about my childhood. (this is a bit brief and weird of me)

1. Life improved after we went no-contact with some of my mum’s family.

2. I went to California Disneyland three times between the ages of 4 and 7, and LOVED it.

3. I had a weird sort of food/anxiety disorder that would probably have been diagnosed had I been a decade younger.

4. I was embarrassingly, freakishly clever as a small child - I say embarrassingly but I was also furious at not being clever enough to ACTUALLY BE Matilda

5. I was, emotionally, a very late developer in terms of all kinds of things, but especially separation anxiety/homesickness. 

6. My mum’s favourite thing was watching me act but she didn’t want me to be an actress. 

7. I used to play Little Women and also Malory Towers with my Barbies. And, although nobody realised it, I briefly ran a Barbie brothel (after seeing a VHS cover design for The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas and thinking it looked amazing). 

White: 3 facts about my personality.

1. Good at small talk.

2. Perceptive about people’s intentions and insecurities.

3. Deeply anxious.

I know he is often called Baby Lewis on Tumblr, but seriously, could he be any more baby-faced here?


It’s the mod fringe. I wish there were a tumblr of hairstyles on Morse. From Lewis to the masses, MASSES of unconditioned blonde perm that at least one woman has per episode. Or a Morse drinking game with special emphasis on dressing gowns.

SOBS INTO THE NIGHT ABOUT LONDON

  • I have had to fight tooth and nail to convince people I do live in London
  • (yes I do live in London fuck you)
  • despite living ten minutes from the tennis courts I’ve never seen a match at Wimbledon
  • I feel more at home in scruffy graffiti’d places than I do posh suburbs
  • my favourite part of London is St James’ Park
  • I have accidentally stumbled into several Leicester Square film premieres, including the first Hobbit film

why do you think tom cruise is a deplorable human being? cuz... scientology is fuckign ridiculous, i'll accept that but he's actually the kindest, most generous actor out there (he never does anything but praise all his co-stars before him, frequently pays a shit ton of money out of his own pockets for cast/crew adventures etc) but because he was a little public about the religion thing for a while he's 'deplorable'? no one gives will smith shit for being a scientologist.

so don’t get me wrong, I’ve heard a lot of really lovely things about him from people who’ve worked with him (Emily Blunt for one, plus the guys on Mission: Impossible seem to be very fond of him), but I’ve heard a lot of shit about his relationship with Katie Holmes and their daughter Suri, and how he treated her/them (from what I was reading) seemed to be really awful. please correct me if what I’ve read is Hollywood scaremongering and gossip, but a quick google threw up quite a number of articles, and I remember reading it in more certifiable papers at the time.

I mean. I love him as an actor (yes, genuinely) and I love a lot of his film work, but when there’re hints of an abusive relationship wandering around, I tend to approach with an open mind but a guilty-until-proven-innocent mentality. I WANT to like him, and the scientology thing is a whole other matter (I think in that scenario he’s probably more of a victim than anything), but I also don’t want to be the person who shoves aside the more problematic parts of his life just because I like his film work. does that help?

I am a-ok with being grossed out by him because of the Suri/Katie stuff, and just generally because of the Scientology stuff if I’m honest (money demanded of believers and NOT in an anonymous way*; isolating tendencies; alleged practices around evangelism, women, motherhood etc; ex-Scientologists speak way more like cult survivors than even ex-Mormons or ex-Pentecostals IME). Also oh god will smith is one too?

*i also disapprove of tithing, but am, full disclaimer, a churchgoer who gives and gift aids and all of it, I don’t tithe and I am WILDLY ANTI the gospel of prosperity so that rules out all revival, evangelical and Mormon churches.

yeah this is exactly what I meant by saying the Scientology thing puts him more in the victim position to me - I am by NO MEANS an expert, but to me it seemed like the very-wealthy with significant trust issues are targeted relatively quickly and soon become indoctrinated in what is essentially a cult and I know for a fact it’s SUPER difficult to leave because it came up RE: Katie Holmes. I’m totally not against tithes etc. and I know they form a big part of Christianity (for one) but Scientology just seemed to be a way of making money off wealthy vulnerable famous people.

I am v against tithes because they generally seem to encourage giving 10% to the church you’re at (and not e.g. cancer research), but you’re probably right to be compassionate about the Cruise/victim thing (although that obviously doesn’t justify anything Suri might have suffered). 

I MEANT TO WRITE GIFT AID WHERE I WROTE TITHES. I am a dumbass currently running on four hours’ sleep, my greatest apologies.

and yep, that’s pretty much my stance! the way he treated his family makes him an asshole, not the Scientology bit. awfully, the latter is probably quite responsible for the former.

I now have some guilt because apparently his father was abusive and he originally wanted to be a Catholic priest (the two aren’t equivalent but being an ex-seminarian on top of that must be mentally interesting e.g. re: your self-conception). But he is so vile to people with MH issues (eg villifying Brooke Shields for using the anti-depressants that got her over her post-natal depression etc). And three failed marriages does suggest that (whatever his wives did) he is MAYBE NOT THE GREATEST HUSBAND.
