Do you ever make a graphic and you get at the point where you have to choose a font and think “if only there were some way to get an overview of all the fonts I have already installed”? Well you can. At wordmark.it you just type in any word you want, it then shows that word in every font you have installed on your computer.
oh you’re watching the winter soldier? i love that movie, the way he just [clenches fist] soldiers on through all that fricken’ winter
Read them all here, I felt like this should be remembered somewhere because it’s really good.
If you try to tell me the Hunger Games isn’t good enough to go toe-to-toe with shit like 1984, Lord of the Flies, and Farenheit 451 then we are gonna have to throw the fuck down

All of this is an awesome read
And maybe I’ll have to actually read the Hunger Games now…
OKAY AND ANOTHER THING CUZ I’M STILL EXCITED about the hunger games is how much of it is about exploitation and denial of agency, how katniss’s body is absolutely a microcosm of her cause and her nation. it’s about the exploitation of resources, about control, control, control, of image, of options.
katniss is handled—she fights for her very most basic right to live and keep alive her family like the starved districts she comes from and so she accepts—has to accept— the role the capitol and later the rebellion itself lays out for her. step here. shoot this. sacrifice that. obey. and smile! and as she’s dragged through her paces so too is the exploited underclass, step for step…. and critics don’t notice, critics dismiss it, as we dismiss women and we dismiss girls.
we’re complicit in the exploitation of women. we’re complicit in the exploitation of the working class, in the consumption of cheap labor, in the consumption of bodies. these are comfortable narratives, lies we’re happy to buy— the author wrote for tv. she knows what sells and why, and she rips it all up and shows you how it works from the awful bleeding underside and still to promote the movie girls are sold capitol makeup.
katniss’s world, her whole story, is a brutally direct allegory of the society in which collins wrote her books.
what a kick in the teeth.
