does anyone else suddenly get hit with flashes of dialogue or scenery or characterization that would be perfect to use if you actually had a plot you could incorporate it into
All the fucking time.
Yeeeeessssss. I am the worst at writing actual plot, which is why I almost never finish anything.

No photoshop or other editing involved. It is make-up on my face, and acrylic paint on my clothes.

Biting his tongue in that first one, though. Ahem.
What if Doctor Who was an American show?

Tony Shaloub as a Doctor woulda killed me
I was digging it until I got to Nic Cage. He is not a good fit. :(
Paul McGann is far superior, even if the movie was not so great.
Definitely down with Wilder and Ford, though. Yes, please.
Is this the part where I’m meant to say no, I haven’t changed government policy, or cured a disease, or housed the homeless? Is this the part where I’m meant to say no, I sit on a computer every day making angry posts on the internet and don’t contribute at all to society?
Or is this the part where I ask you what you consider a ‘meaningful and measurable impact’ is? People seem to question those who advocate for change in order to make them justify their stance. Actions speak louder than words, right?
But words are also powerful. Laws are words that create action. Wars have been started on words. On beliefs. On the individual. A single person cannot change the world. But a single person can change those around them, which can have a ripple effect.
So you tell me, what is meaningful and measurable. Is the individual only worth something if they are in a crowd? Is the single person only a part of a greater statistic? Is the one really only a part of a whole?
I changed myself. I was ignorant, and racist, and sexist in a lot of ways. I had a lot of internalised racism and misogny. I have educated myself. Taken some hard bumps. I’ve talked to people who were homophobic to try and understand how they felt. I’ve listened to people who are a part of a minority to prevent myself from hurting them further. I speak, and I listen, and I hear.
I’ve taken part in charities, signed petitions, raised money, cut and dyed my hair, protested, and shouted. I’ve sat down and had quiet conversations. Asked questions that people couldn’t answer. Had the same asked of me.
I’ve bought water for the homeless people in the city on a hot day. Bought Christmas presents, wrapped them, and placed them under a community tree for children in the foster system. I’ve happily donated money to friends who needed it, and strangers who needed it more. Is that what you want? Does that pass muster to be able to say the things I say, and believe the things I believe? Do I have permission now?
An individual is where power lies. A hundred, a million. A citizen or a Prime Minister. I might not be able to change my country, but I can change the people around me. I can help, I can educate, I can refuse to allow ignorance to exist unhindered, or bigotry to occur without objecting. I hold myself accountable. I hold others accountable.
I don’t know what you think ‘meaningful and measurable’ is. But I think that every single person, every single change, is meaningful and measurable. Don’t you?
Josh is so charming. He’s so charming! And when you read in the books about Peeta being able to manipulate anybody — I mean Josh could get, well, I don’t know a metaphor for [this scenario] except for dirty ones. But he’s charming, he’s sweet, he’s down to earth, he’s normal. He embodies all of it and brings it all to Peeta. So when you meet him he’s got all of these great qualities and every single one of them come across in every line he says out loud as Peeta. - Jennnifer Lawrence
