There’s a dark spirit. They call it Void.
It draws its power from pain and tragedy, strife and chaos.
THIS IS MARRIAGE!!
Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.
He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”
Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.
I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT
LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.
In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.
Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.
Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT.
Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.
FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.
^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.

the actual situation in Argentina
time for some serious blogging.
so the police went on strike in argentina last week and there have been riots in various provinces of mobs breaking into shops and supermarkets and destroying and stealing all they could…. and also attacking people on the streets. these riots are supposedly about starving people and the rising poverty in the country. but you see: these attackers aren’t taking the food they claim to need. they are taking everything and anything they can find: phones, TVs, personal shit, whatever lies on their way they steal. they are stripping hard-working people of everything they have. they are destroying small shops and commerces and big supermarket chains indiscriminately.
the worst part i guess (or not, everything is horrible) is that they say through the grapevine that these moves are political and have been staged to made the current government look bad.
this already happened in 2001.
our president back then resigned. our current president has yet tomake an appearance.
so much for 30 years of democracy, some folks in this country are beyond redemption.
(we had them in a far smaller scale in buenos aires last week, but people have been killed in other places such as cordoba and tucuman. there is an atmosphere of thick tentsion in the country: in 2001 the worst of the mob appeared around december 20, and we still got 10 days till that…)
Happy 26th Birthday, Gonzalo Higuain! | Dec.10

"Imagine that you are kneeling in front of your father, asking for forgiveness for being a bad son."
The direction that Del Toro gave to Rob Kazinsky for the “That’s my son,” scene. (via libertinem)
#OH GOD#OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD#BUT THE THING IS HE DOES KNEEL#TO MAX#DOWN ON ONE KNEE HEAD BOWED TENDERLY SPEAKING TO THE ONE LIVING SOUL WHO ACTS AS THE HANSENS’ EMOTIONAL STAND-IN FOR EACHOTHER#HE DOES KNEEEEEL#HOW DO I FIT THIS NEW REVELATION INTO MY PITIFUL EXISTENCE (tags by vrabia)
The context for this quote in the podcast was in reference to Max, and Kazinsky concluded by saying “the dog was Chuck Hansen’s soul”.
Please excuse me. I need to find more sobbing reaction GIFs.
I literally just made a noise like a dying animal.
