You know what I hate? When people get pissed off when you tell them you don’t want them to touch you. Like excuse me, I don’t actually want you to touch my arm. I don’t want a hug right now. I don’t give a shit if you’re family. I don’t care if the phrase “I don’t want to be touched” puts you off. Just don’t fucking touch me.

Hello, everyone in #stoporci2014!
So glad to see so many of you! In the spirit of Star Trek and its philosophy of inclusivity and open-mindedness, however, this South Asian trekkie would like to make a request:
Please stop labeling Khan’s casting as white-washing. And also, please do not use that as something to hold against Orci.
By attacking Khan’s casting, you are inadvertently committing erasure of South Asian Culture.
All things considered, I’ve been over the Khan issue since the beginning. But just to add something. The character was massively rewritten not to just fit around Roddenberry’s desire to reach out to his friend and the gentleman they cast for the role, but before that as well. Originally he was supposed to be a Scandinavian criminal, non-superhuman and Botany Bay was a prison, and that slowly changed over the short time the rough draft was created and the final character.
I personally would have went with Gary Mitchell as STID’s villain, which Cumberbatch would have also been amazing at giving that Mitchell took on some supernatural god complex, but that’s just me.
God bless Tolkien.
Two households, both alike in dignity,
in Middle Earth, where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal realms of these two foes
A pair of star-cross’d brothers make their life
Whose misadventure Sauron overthrows,
And with his death, end their people’s strife.
Their fearful passage, that shall death mark’d prove
And the continuance of their parents’ rage
Which but The One Ring’s end, naught could remove,
Is now, like, twelve hours’ traffic of our stage;
The which of you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
did you just rewrite shakespeare for lord of the rings and make it work better than the original
ENGLISH LITERATURE NERDGASM OF EPIC PROPORTION!
