How remarkable the penguin is.
"It courts, breeds, and raises its chicks in a terrestrial world and has adaptations in order to do this well. The group hunts, catches prey, and travels great distances in an aquatic world. This, also, it does well. In fact, some of the diving adaptations and other abilities of penguins are sensational. Many areas of research are dynamic and our knowledge of penguins is growing on a regular basis. We are truly blessed to be able to observe and learn about such a hybrid group that lives at the interface of land and sea."
- Gerald L. Kooyman, the emeritus professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and is the world’s foremost expert on emperor penguins.
Motherboy opened a chapter on Vulcan several years before the planet’s destruction; however, they found the Vulcans’ general disdain for dancing and costumery and overal emotion to be a hinderance to the event’s core values, and plans for 5th Vulcan Motherboy were soon scrapped. Not so in Westeros. The people took to Motherboy was great gusto. Lysa and Robert Arryn are the undefeated champions.

Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”
Instant reblog for sonnet.
I hate Joss Whedon’s writing. This movie will be terrible.
Hey there buddy, couldn’t help but notice a little confusion going on here. I’m just going to sort that out and give you a few notes of my own. I hope that’s okay with you?
First and foremost, this film is an adaptation of a play called Much Ado About Nothing and is not actually written by Joss Whedon. So good news for you there.
Secondly, this film actually got very good reviews at all the film festivals it toured so even if you’re not a huge Whedon fan (or even a huge Shakespeare fan) there’s not much risk you’ll hate it.
As a closing note, nobody is going to force you to watch the movie (unless your significant other is a romance nut! Amirite?) so those of us who are excited for it would really prefer it if you didn’t come into a space where we’re going to be discussing this film (the Joss Whedon tag, etc) and be mean about it in a non-constructive manner.
Have a good day, tumblr user joestarr. I hope today is the day you get enough coffee stamps to earn a free coffee.
Who is Shakespeare? did he help write Dollhouse? That show sucked but I’d bang the main chick in it.
Shakespeare is actually a famous British playwright who lived from 1564 to 1616. He became quite famous for his plays and poems and since has been the subject of much academic study. He did not help write Dollhouse.
The main writers of Dollhouse are as follows: Joss Whedon, Tim Minear, Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Andrew Chambliss, Tracy Bellomo, Elizabeth Craft, and Sarah Fain.
You are entitled to your opinion on Dollhouse, I personally find the second season to be one of the most emotionally devastating works to ever grace television and I love it for this reason. Again, if you dislike something I’m sure we’d all rather you give well constructed arguments as to why you dislike said thing.
The “main chick” in Dollhouse would be actress Eliza Dushku, who is way out of your league you tedious fucking asshole.
Have a great day and stop attempting to coat your poorly thought through sexist jokes with a sense of irony it just makes you come off as a dick.
This is what happens when someone on the internet takes themselves too seriously. It’s also what happens when someone is dense enough to miss a really obvious joke about not liking Joss Whedon’s writing of a Shakespeare adaptation.
Normally I’d leave it alone, but my cat can’t poop and he’s at the vet so I’m gonna take all that stress and just apply it here. Therapy!
However, he is to be admired for his long winded and hilarious attempt at smug superiority that ended with suggesting I come off as a dick. Especially after writing that much text that makes you come off as a dick (and a little dense). It’s almost too meta and brilliant to be real.
Well done sir. I hope to be able to ‘come into your space again’ in the near future, because you’re pretty entertaining.
And of course Shakespeare didn’t write Dollhouse. Christopher Marlowe did.
He also wrote the movie Go.
Do you guys remember Go? Raves.
This is amazing. My good buddy Joe made a joke about the upcoming Joss Whedon Much Ado on his tumblr and the user justmyflawedlogic came out guns a-blazing. Holy fandom! I dream that we all one day find something to feel as passionately about as justmyflawedlogic feels about Joss! (I like to secretly imagine it’s Joss himself.)
Much Ado! In Theaters This June!
