Quote
"Fans are generally nerds. They’re people who are more thoughtful than your average person and also a little more devoted. They’re people who can obsess over things, and really get into the minutiae, and who may also be more likely to step into a fantasy world.

They spend more time at their computers, more time reading books, more time imagining. I think genre and fantasy shows like Supernatural appeal to these people, and I think that disproportionately, those are also people who are seeking greater community in their lives. I’ve met a lot of people in fandom who for one reason or another have felt like they don’t totally fit in to normal society. For them, this fandom has served as a conduit to finding one another—it has helped them forge community. And I think, in a nutshell, that feeling of community is what makes fandom so powerful.

I did a global scavenger hunt for the past two years called GISHWHES (the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen). At every convention since, at least a half-dozen people have come up to me and said something, sometimes (no joke) with tears welling in their eyes, about how transformative the experience was for them. Their best friends are now people they met on their team, or their roommates are people they met on their team, or they were agoraphobic and hadn’t left the house for years and now a curtain has been lifted. I met a woman who had not been out of her house in three years before participating in GISHWHES. She was trembling and crying; it had been a major breakthrough for her. When I hear things like that, I can’t help tearing up myself. It makes this job that I have lucked into so much more fulfilling. For some people, fandom is an essential and powerful force in their lives. For others, fandom serves as a whimsical little romp or an erotic fantasy or a writing workshop. For me, Sera Gamble was right – fandom has changed my life."

now this man is either dead or just old as hell but lord he was something else.

who is thiss someone message me!!!

he was my boyfriend in the 1960’s. im immortal

that´s marlon brando 

And this is Brando.

And this.

And this.


It depresses me that people didn’t know who this was.

Fun fact:  this is the same guy who got pretty pissed at one of his directors and retaliated by refusing to ever wear pants on set, so the director had to work around only filming him from the waist up.

He was also active during the civil rights movement, to the point where he was even at the March on Washington 

(That’s him with activist/author James Baldwin)
He sent a native american woman in his place at the oscars to accept his award because he was angry about the treatment of native americans in this country and in the industry. 
Oh and he was also allegedly bi sexual 

there’s no alleged…he was bisexual. James B also wanted the D.

Yes there is weakness, there is frailty. But there is courage also, and honour to be found in men.

Your House doesn’t define you.

And please, the next time you’re about to tease someone for being a lowly Hufflepuff, or a slimy Slytherin, or a stuck up Ravenclaw or even a foolish Gryffindor, just remember that we are all Hogwarts students. We’re all part of the magic.
