IMPORTANT : I just wanna point out that its STEVE who gets the flirting started between him and Sam at the beginning of the movie. Sam is just moseying around the mall, going for his run, and this hot guy continually blazes past him had just has to rub it in that he’s totally outrunning him. And then it’s Steve who stops to chat, makes a teasing little comments, offers friendly competition, and then THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE. “Oh, that’s how it is?” Steve, you tryin’ to fuck. We see right through you.
As the movie progresses, it’s always Steve that seeks Sam out. He goes to the VA to visit him (just to visit, apropos of nothing), shows up at his fucking apartment when how does Steve know where Sam lives?
Upon my initial viewing of Cap 2 I really saw it as Sam fawning over Steve, but when I think about it, they’re definitely in mutual like but it’s really Steve that’s got a crush on Sam. Wants him in his life. I think the fandom has caught on to this as well because the influx of fic I’ve been reading features a lot of Steve being the aggressor towards Sam, and I like that. I love it. I want some more of it.
Open Source Clothing.
Now I feel it imperative to reblog this, because the project seems to have hit a snag: The video they put up has been taken down because of claims of 3rd-party content, whatever whatever corporate lawyer stuff internet throttling stuff. That makes me think that Bennetton or one of the others whose stores were glimpsed in the background got their hooks in Vimeo.
So I thought I’d tell you a yarn about how this thing works:
You download the open-source plans for the machine.
You build it.
You download their open-souce clothing-maker program.
You enter the desired measurements into the fields (the ones I remember from the video were arm and neck and chest measurements, so I’m sure they have waist and/or hips too)
You print out your sweater, or hat, or scarf, or cardigan, or whatever it was that you selected. It takes an hour to print out the sweater, working off of the two yarn spools that you can see in the bottom right corner of this .gif
That’s it. Custom-fit, custom-color clothing in an hour, for the price of yarn. Can you see why one of the clothing companies targetted in the video might have felt threatened enough to force the video to come down?
I know if I sold overpriced manufactured clothes, I’d see this as a looming menace.

A reminder that fashion doesn’t have copyright! Here’s a nifty TED Talk about that.
SHIRTS THAT WOULD FIT MY HUMONGOUS TITS AND BICEPS SCREAM
why do white feminists think ‘BUT WE NEED MORE LEADING WOMEN IN THE ACTION GENRE’ is a good excuse to watch lucy do they honestly believe hollywhite just completely missed GRAVITY and the ENTIRE MOTHERFUCKING HUNGER GAMES FRANCHISE what do they think the funding for ‘lucy’ is coming in the wake of?
they boycott pacific rim (which, yknow, had a japanese woman shoving some of hollywhite’s most racist & sexist tropes so far back up its own ass it was still tasting them the week after) for not passing the bechdel test but blatant violence and racism, well that can slide, that’s great representation, that’s empowering for women.
"you speak english?"
boy i sure do feel empowered seein people who look like my dad & my friends get murdered for not speaking english IN TAIWAN
What’s weird is this line has shown up in Hollywood movies twice already in the past year (2013). It was used both in The Wolverine andOlympus has Fallen—both films feature the white hero vs. Asian baddies screaming “SPEAK ENGLISH” to some hapless Asian minion and then enacting violence on them. So that joke isn’t even original.
Seriously, wow, fuck this. That scene literally glorifies a very real act of anti-Asian violence - this isn’t some protagonist blowing up random bad guys in helicopters or engaging in a big, drawn-out car chase scene, this is literally a common expression of anti-Asian (and overall anti-immigrant) sentiment - speak English! - that has often been a part of actual violence.
And they made it even more fucked up by taking place in a non-English speaking country. Why the fuck should she be demanding they speak English? It’s fucking Taiwan.
There has been a lot of racist shit from Hollywood, lately and otherwise, but this movie may just take the cake.
These are some techniques I use when I’m having a panic attack.
I’m no expert, but they seem to help me out, so maybe they’ll help you out too.
this is great also gonna add that listening to music or an audiobook can really help
This not only works well for anxiety and panic attacks, but also for arguments that get out of hand (everyone separate and cool your heads), getting too angry or upset at something, getting really sad over a specific situation (take a walk and get a good cry out) - basically any situation where your feel trapped, or out of control, or overwhelmed, this advice works really well.
