    Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel 

    Speaking their lines vs the final product

    Why is Vin Diesel looking down? Is he worried he’s gonna forget his line?

    Vin Diesel asked the director his inspiration for every line he did and did multiple takes until he was satisfied. He also recorded the line over 1,000 times and also recorded his lines in Mandarin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish so they could use his real voice in those versions. He’s looking at his lines because Vin Diesel is a  dedicated  motherfucking professional

    Vin Diesel made you fall in love with a character who said 4 words. The CGI brought his words to visual life, but they’d be meaningless without his amazing command of voice. 

    Basically vin Diesel had the challenge of:
    "OK, this is the message you’re trying to convey"
    "Alright"
    "But you can only ONLY say I am Groot”

    Because every time Groot says “I am Groot” he means something and vin Diesel had to convey that message as best he could with only those 3 words through inflection, emphasis, and emotion.

    THIS.

    I have never thought about it in this context

    that’s actually really, really creepy.

    I… fuck.

    Yeah, basically.

    I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages. 

    There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.

  • Anonymous asked : i don't understand why won't people get that the problem is racists, not white people..? i don't want to make this about me i just don't understand these posts with all this bashing to white people, i feel like they have the wrong target and it's sad..

    mehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh:

    these posts are referring to the racists white people who are mocking the ‘if they gunned me down’ tag. believe it or not, a lot of white people don’t see this as racism. they don’t even care that an innocent black boy was just killed by the police and now the police are trying to cover their tracks. many white people are blaming Mike Brown for his own murder or justifying his murder.

    if you aren’t one of those people, please don’t take the posts personally.  obviously it is only aimed at the people they are discussing. i know there are people out there who hate white people as a whole. i don’t agree with that.

    White people aren’t the problem" - ok, but with our track record, yeah, we kinda are. I get the whole "I am not my ancestors" thing, but when we’ve got a WHOLE FUCKING LOT, if not a MAJORITY, of white Americans who are seriously just as racist as their forefathers, we’ve got a problem - and yeah, the problem is mostly white people.

    These asks are just a bunch of self-preserving, “But I’M not racist, though :(“‘s, and raychillster is a queen for even dignifying any of them with a response tbh.

    "If you aren’t one of those people, please don’t take the posts personally." (applicable to so many other situations, as well)

    If all of my fellow white people could PLEASE stop fucking being the following meme right now, that would be really great:

    image

    Please realize how pathetic it makes us ALL look and just… no. Honestly, do I really have to explain all the reasons why?

    If you’re not a racist asshole, great, but do more than just whine about your butthurt feelings and actually USE YOUR PRIVILEGE TO HELP.

    Officer Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown. Spread it like wildfire.

    And PLEASE stop sharing the image of the black officer named Darren Wilson who serves in STLPD. That’s not the right person.

    "but Mike Brown stole a candy bar!"

    He still didn’t deserve to die.

    "But he threw up gang signs!"

    He still didn’t deserve to die.

    "But he MIGHT have been involved in a robbery on the other side of town-"

    HE STILL DIDNT DESERVE TO BE SHOT 7 TIMES ON THE GROUND AFTER HE PUT HIS HANDS UP.

    These tweets (and one retweet) are from my friend Ryan, a journalist who has been on the ground in Ferguson for the past few days. (His Twitter account is here, and it’s a great source of updates on the situation there   [x]).

    I just wanted to remind everybody that while spreading word about Michael Brown’s unjust murder and the horrifying events of the night of August 14, 2014, please do not oversimplify or ignore the complexities of the situation.

    Journalists in the town have been doing what journalists do: focusing on all the negative aspects about the community to try and make it look like a hell-hole in order to sell their own pictures and stories, and basically all many of them want to do is further their own careers. But focusing on all that negativity only paints the picture of one side of the story, ignoring a lot of other important things going on there.

    Please do not fall prey to the media’s game. Anger at the actions of the police in Ferguson is totally justified, but in the midst of that we cannot allow the people who are living with the situation every day to be dehumanized. Despite all this tragedy and chaos going on around them, they’re still a community and in many ways they’re pulling through all of it together. They want peace. Anyone looting or burning things down is a very small portion of the community. The whole story is so much bigger.

    A story doesn’t need tear gas to be interesting. We need to hear every side of this story, not just the horrific parts.

    TL:DR: please don’t fall prey to media attempts to dehumanize and oversimplify the situation in ferguson!!

    Oh, my mistake.

    Luke Woodham, 16, WHITE. Murdered two students at his school AND his own mother. Now in prison.

    Kip Kinkel, 15, WHITE. Murdered two students at his school AND both of his parents. Now in prison.

    Eric Hainstock, 15, WHITE. Murdered one student at his school. Now in prison.

    TJ Lane, 17, WHITE. Murdered three students and told their parents that he masturbates to the memory at his trial. Now in prison.

    James Holmes, 24, WHITE. Murdered twelve people at a premier of Batman. Now in prison.

    Timothy McVeigh, 27, WHITE. Murdered 168 people and injured 600 more when he blew up a building in Oklahoma. Was executed in 2001, but only after a fair trial and appeals.

    Not to mention all of the serial killers, school shooters and spree killers who are touted as being “misunderstood” and were given the basic liberty of a fair trial even though the majority of them committed crimes so abhorrent that I won’t write about them on this blog.

    But you’re a right. A black, unarmed 18 year old boy who ALLEGEDLY held up a store deserved to be shot while he was on the ground. And he sure as fuck deserved to be laid in the middle of the street, uncovered for over 4 hours. And maybe because I’m a mother too but my mind automatically goes to his mother, she deserved to see her baby being treated like that right?

    My mistake.

    Preach!

    speak on it!

    image

    This is quickly becoming my catch phrase: Fuck white people. We deserve to get shot over a cigar. Over mistaken identities. Over suspicions. They fucking kill busloads full of people. They get a fair trial. A white motherfucker could blow up a building full of orphans and he’ll at least make it to prison. Black dude? Nah. You’re leaving that scene in a body bag and your family is going to prison. Then the cops will shoot your damn dog. Fuck white people. 

    image

    The owner called and said he didn’t steal anything.

    The timestamp from the videos that white people are using as evidence? June. Two months before he was shot. Cops said the robbery happened on the same day as the shooting. Get the fuck out of here.image

    ^^^^ OH DAMN!!!

    sadly, with the way the police are out, marching, and ready for the curfew (with dogs), there are some people that may need this

    Guys there is shit going down in ferguson right now and I am not seeing anything about it.

    As of RIGHT NOW they are being tear gassed like before.

    Please see the livestream it’s important.

    The police have forced the media into a small area.
    And then they very purposefully used tear gas to force the peaceful protesters back out of camera range, and you can hear shots being fired off camera, as well as more tear gas canisters.

    Parents of Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis Share Their Loss at the United Nations

    Sitting in meetings in the United Nation’s ornate Wilson Palace by the shores of Lake Geneva in the shadow of the Alps seems an odd place to discuss racial discrimination in the United States.

    But the problems of racial discrimination quickly hit home at an event earlier this week that hosted the parents of Travon Martin and Jordan Davis, two unarmed young black men killed by armed white men claiming to be acting in self-defense. Made all the more powerful as it came on the heels of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., their affecting and often harrowing testimony immediately erased the distance between Switzerland and the United States. It made the discrimination present and underscored the importance of the work being done here at the U.N.’s review of the U.S. record of racial discrimination.
