Cinderella arrives at the ball.
this movie was so important
we had black cinderella, a black fairy godmother, and a filipino prince
like yoOOOOO THIS WAS ‘97 AND PEOPLE ARE SHITTING OVER A CHEERIOS COMMERCIAL TODAY LIKE Y000000
Loved this version so much. My sole objection was the casting of Victor Garber in a musical and then not letting him sing anything. Dude was on Broadway. Dude can sang. Let him sang.
I’m having one of those useless days where I’m convinced that I’m a hack with no talent. Ugh.
I love the word practice. How do you get to Carnegie Hall? You practice. How do you get to the Carnegie Hall of your soul, of your life, how do you get to the concert hall where you make best music inside yourself? You practice. How do you practice? You change your behavior. Every day. It’s very difficult, and you constantly are falling down and you have to constantly try to change it again.

I’ve been reading Kurtofsky stories all day.
Okay, all this Thanksgiving reading is making me miss the States. Dang.
the category is MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000
$1000 (name the actor, in case that’s unclear)
RELATED BONUS: the classic MST3K YTMND
Hard to believe Mystery Science Theater 3000 is 25 years old, but I (like a lot of non-Minnesotans) never heard of the show until it was nearing the end of its Comedy Central run. It’s been showing up on Netflix Instant lately and I’m loving every minute of it.
My favorite episode has to be “The Final Sacrifice” because ROWSDOWEREREREERRERERERERER.
BIG MCLARGEHUGE! Ugh, so many favorite episodes. SO MANY.
Happy Birthday you bundle of fucking joy. To my favorite actor of all time. Not just for his talent in portraying his characters perfectly, but also for being an inspiration for living life. He’s overcome so many obstacles and to this day he is smiling, and he speaks openly on what he believes in. Seriously, a very underrated actor. He’s MY inspiration.
Happy Birthday, Mark Alan Ruffalo!
What obstacles has he overcome?
So sexy :)
Brain tumor was a big obstacle. After it was removed it left one side of his face paralyzed for months I believe…
Not to mention his brother being murdered…
Okay, look. Mark Ruffalo found out he had a brain tumor right before his first child was born, and he DIDN’T TELL ANYONE because he wanted the attention on the birth, and not to stress his family out more than they were. Keen was around a couple of weeks before he admitted to anyone that he had to go in for surgery.
And yeah, his face was paralyzed enough that he thought he was never going to be able to act again, and it was that that made him realize that acting really was his true passion.
And his brother. His brother, who was murdered in a flat with other people around. His brother, who people were saying committed suicide until the forensics doctors measured that the bullet went into the top of his head at a sharp, high angle and realized someone flat out executed him. Someone who still hasn’t been caught.
Don’t talk to me about Mark Ruffalo. Sometimes I get emotional.
