With all the Bucky Love going around tumblr, I feel so vindicated. It’s like a hipster “I was into Bucky before it was cool” thing, but instead of being resentful at all these new peeps getting up in your fandom, I’m all YES WELCOME I’M SO GLAD YOU MADE IT JOIN ME IN THE EXQUISITE JOY/PAIN THAT IS JAMES BUCHANAN BARNES

And really, the only people who have grounds to be Bucky Hipsters are in their eighties, and thinking I WAS INTO CAPS TEENAGE CHUM BUCKY BEFORE ANY OF THIS NEW FANGLED WINTER SOLDIER RUBBISH SONNY

I think I’ll go back this year.

I was born in Christchurch. Wellington is my home, but I always felt that Christchurch had a space saved for me, whether or not I ever came for it. It was home to so many places and people I loved, most of whom aren’t there anymore. The last time I was there was June 2012, and I saw almost nothing, just fences and orange tape. I didn’t really want to see It was enough to have to simply look at what was directly in front of me. It’s been three years now. 20 months since the second loss. 

I’ll always carry both with me. But I think I can go back now. I feel I owe it to the city I loved, to the grandfather I loved, to the place he loved.

Neither the building nor the man are still there, but I can still be.

step 1: cut the sleeve off an old grey Henley. sew onto old black Henley.
step 2: sparkly red star iron-on, GO!
step 3: pair with greasy black eyeliner and scowl. 
step 4: ask everyone you encounter who the hell Bucky is.

GENIUS. Stealth cosplay is the best.

Hank Pym’s struggle with his ‘son’ Ultron is one of the greatest psychologically grounded rivalries to come out of Marvel comics.

It’s a dramatic and intricate break down of Hank’s inferiority complex and bi-polar depression, coupled with an extravagant and threatening android personification of megalomania with an Oedipus Complex.

And Joss Whedon thinks that having one of Tony Stark’s Iron Man suits (with JARVIS controlling it?) go out of control and evil is a fitting replacement?

Joss has already expressed his interest in Ultron by stating that he loves how he’s just "really pissed off". Truly he understands this deep and complex character. So glad he gets to bring him to film.

Thanks, Mr Whedon, for denying Hank, a founding Avenger (as well as creator of alternate universes and Scientist Supreme) of one of his greatest achievements and greatest failures - the crux of his character.

And thank you further for unloading it on a character that has already seen the most emphasis in the MCU - you might as well re-name the Avengers “Iron Man and Friends”.

Joss, I’m sincere when I say this: Go fuck yourself, buddy.

Jon Stewart may seem like he’s joking but he’s not wrong. Tourism to New Zealand is up 10% in the last year because of The Hobbit (up 19% for visitors from the US). Our country relies on The Hobbit. 

Our country doesn’t rely on Peter Jackson, peeps. The country went nine years without a Tolkien tourism release, and the economy didn’t shut down. Yes, tourism is an extremely profitable sector, but it is by no means the be all and end all of our nations financial sector. We rely on fair weather and the exploitation of our waterways to fuel irrigation for agriculture and dairying, far more than we ever will on one movie project. Besides, banking on international tourism in this economic and environmental climate is fucking idiotic. Peak oil has passed us by, the only way travel costs can go is up, and before long, international travel, particularly to regions as remote as New Zealand, will be the reserve of the wealthy.

Yes, The Hobbit is advertising for the country, but it’s not free. I paid ten dollars for it to happen. Every Kiwi tax payer paid ten dollars for it to happen, thanks to tax breaks our government forked over to keep production here. That same government pushes The Hobbit in the public eye, here and abroad, because it’s neat and pretty and uncontroversial, for the most part, and they can joyfully talk about all the good it (and by extension, they, for “fighting” to keep it here) presents to the country, despite the fact that they are right wing capitalist horrors.

The Hobbit is just a set of films.

”Travellers at Wellington Airport check out the giant eagle sculpture, thought pay homage to Gwaihir the Windlord from the Hobbit.”
I’d do nearly anything to live in a country where they hang up Great Eagles to celebrate the Hobbit movies. Such a wonderful and cool country.

haha, people extrapolating opinions about new zealand from Tolkien stuff and it’s marketing campaigns is almost as good as people thinking new zealand is a pristine, mostly rural farming idyll. 
Its that time of year, guys. Get ready for bitter Hobbit posts.
