overhearing a conversation between strangers in which they’re saying something completely wrong and you really feel like correcting them
“I mean, it used to be so romantic to go to a movie - to sit in a big theater that had a balcony, and boxes, and fabulous gilt trim on the walls, and a big red velvet curtain. Now we go to horrible unadorned grey rectangles where the sound bleeds in from the grey rectangles next door. It’s sad.”
- Nora Ephron
My behind the scenes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in Washington, DC (Dupont Circle). Chris Evans and his stunt double goofing off before a scene. Highlights from the unedited clip: The “Bro hug” at around :47, & miming beating a person up at :55.
There’s a ton of people there! Oh my god! When he waves and everyone just freaks out, that was awesome.
Sooooo guess who I met tonight??? #CaptainAmerica himself shooting his second movie #TheWinterSoldier in #DC.
Apparently any time he had a break, he’d wave at the crowd. Jesus christ Chris Evans, stop it.
Revealing how Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) & Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) first meet, Captain America: The Winter Soldier dialogue has surfaced from the Washington, D.C. shoot. Mild spoiler warning…I cleared the dialogue for anybody who didn’t wish to see it but OMG THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST BRO MOVIE FROM EVERYBODY INVOLVEDI am so damn excited!!!!!
EVERYTING IS ADORABLE AND NOTHING HURTS. THIS MOVIE IS GOING TO BE JUST AS ADORABLE AND PERFECT AS CAP 1 AND NO ONE CAN CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE.
“Cap has been keeping a list of “modern” things to check out. Attempting to add to the list what Sam hilariously suggested: fluffernutters or Marvin Gaye’s Trouble Man soundtrack…Steve pulls out an actual pad, where a portion reads, “Nirvana, Thai Food, Star Wars?”
I CAN’T HANDLE THIS LEVEL OF AWESOMENESS. SOMEONE FUCKING HOLD MEEEEEE!
THIS IS HOW THEY MEET?!?! IT’S PERFECT! AND BLACK WIDOW! OH. MY. GOD!
I totally have this headcanon that Steve loves ’90s grunge music and anything done by black artists. There’s a comic panel somewhere where Steve had a “soul music” playlist on his ipod. He also has a sweet tooth, I’m sure of it, I’m calling all of this right now…
May 17, 1954: The Supreme Court unanimously rules public school segregation unconstitutional in Brown v. Board of Education.
Fifty-nine years ago today, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in a landmark case that the segregation of public schools was prohibited under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment; newly-appointed Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote in the opinion:
Segregation of white and colored children in public schools has a detrimental effect upon the colored children. The impact is greater when it has the sanction of the law; for the policy of separating the races is usually interpreted as denoting the inferiority of the negro group…. We conclude that, in the field of public education, the doctrine of “separate but equal” has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.
