ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

I CAN’T WAIT

So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.

Ka-Pow: Watch These Fish Cannons Shoot Salmon Safely Over Dams

Salmon have serious swimming skills—some travel thousands of miles to return to their original homes to breed. But even though they can jump as high as 12 feet in the air, they can’t manage to get over massive concrete dams that we have built to block their journeys back to their homes. Now one new idea could give them a boost. The plan involves whisking the fish through a long vacuum tube at speeds up to 22 miles per hour and then shooting them out the other end like a cannon.

It’s interesting to me that, as women, we are taught basically from birth that our main indicator of value is our bodies.  We are taught that being seen as attractive is the highest measure of our success.  Whether or not this rings true for every single woman personally doesn’t exclude the fact that our culture pounds this message into us every time we open a magazine, see a movie, turn on the TV and look at a billboard.  And it’s not just our attractiveness in an objective sense or how confident we feel within ourselves.  It’s how attractive we are to men.  The more desirable we are to the opposite sex, the more value is attributed to us.  So it’s really fucking interesting how women like me who work in stripclubs and actually make our living from being desirable to men are completely devalued.  We are generalized in the media as being unintelligent, shallow, desperate.  A whore.  "Fuck this math shit, I’m gonna be a stripper!" LO-fucking-L.  It really amazes me when people devalue strippers for being exactly what our culture tells women to do in order to be valuable.  I guess what society is really saying is "Be sexy, be hot, be the object of every man’s desire.  But don’t try too hard.  Don’t exploit it for financial gain.  And don’t you DARE enjoy yourself while doing it."

do you ever just smell an old perfume, or hear an old song, or pass an old hangout spot and kinda break inside for a couple minutes
