My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.
To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…
Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.”
Cathal is a multifaceted character – an estranged and lost child, a reflective soul, a self-destructive drug addict and a loyal friend. He is very central to the story, even given his little association with Jules – and Colin Morgan played this delicate fragile character of many aspects with much sensitivity and charm. Without a doubt, the final act of his performance was heart-wrenching, moving and stirred so much empathy for Cathal that it almost became unforgettable.
Have you ever seen the actual moment when that leaf breaks from it’s branch? It’s a beautiful thing.
I watched “Parked” again yesterday. That movie is so emotional I feel like a hollowed-out shell of a person for days after I watch it. Just incredibly great acting from Colin and Colm. The scenery, the soundtrack, the devastation.
The fact that Merlin makes random shit up to mortify Arthur always kills me.
"Spew?" said Harry, picking up a badge and looking at it. "What’s this about?"
"Not spew,” said Hermione impatiently, “It’s S-P-E-W. Stands for the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare.”

↳ 8: A scene you wanted to be in the movies: S.P.E.W.
"I’VE HAD ENOUGH, I’VE SEEN ENOUGH, I WANT OUT, I WANT IT TO END, I DON’T CARE ANYMORE!"
"You do care," said Dumbledore. "You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.”
my favorite people of 2013: matt smithI think that every artistic venture is a risk, and it has to be that way, so you do as much preparation as you can and make that as thorough as you can possibly make it, until you turn up on set. It’s about taking risks, and some might work and some might not, but that’s what makes it interesting.
Go Forth and Educate Yourselves!
I’d also highly recommend watching the Jane Elliot Brown-eye/Blue-eye experiments, which can be found here:
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pv8mCHbOrs (Part 1)
- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neEVoFODQOE (Part 2 - Has very important points on Reverse Racism and how it doesn’t exist, and it also dismantles the “We All Bleed Red” mentality.)
Not only should you educate yourself but use this for good. Look around you and help others who don’t have this privilege. Hiring, donating, community service, etc.
After this post went viral, the original artist had to delete their tumblr because they were inundated with death threats.
There were people more offended by this comic than offended by the existence of racial disparities—to the point where they threatened this artist’s life.
What. The. Fuck.
This person was literally trying to help and what was the ignorant side of tumblr’s response? Death threats.
