Someone tell this songwriter that jesus can’t be both the Lord of Light and the Prince of Life you can’t have two claspects without being a cherub
i need feminism because when jesus does a magic trick it’s a goddamn miracle but when a woman does a magic trick she gets burned at the stake
i mean they did also kill jesus. that was a pretty significant thing that happened. like i understand where you’re coming from here but they very much did kill jesus.

Can we talk about how these last scenes in The Empire Strikes Back are the very, very first glimpses of Anakin slowly emerging from Vader?
At the end of Revenge of the Sith, when Palpatine told Vaderkin that he killed Padmé in his anger, he became Vader completely. Narmish or not, his “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!” represented the last remains of Anakin being buried definitely in Vader, as if Anakin died at the moment Padmé (and what he believed, their unborn child) did. He then expended two decades as Palpatine’s
slaveright hand, always stoic and rarely slashing his temper, but deep inside, haunted by the notion of knowing he killed his wife and his child.
Then, 22 years later, he discovered Luke’s existence.
To me, there’s a contrast between the Vader of A New Hope and the Vader of The Empire Strikes Back. Vader in ANH, although prone to anger, is much more stoic and controlled; in ESB, he is more impatient and has more temper, shocking his subordinates at the first failure. But mostly, he’s just plain obsessed to find Luke, he even invades Hoth at the back of Palpatine just to find his kid. Heck, he even plans to froze Luke in carbonite and uses Han as a test. Let’s see: impatience, bad temper, possessiveness? Oh yes, that’s Anakin. Certainly not Anakin’s best traits, but still Anakin’s.
And then comes this scene. After the intense duel in Bespin where he revealed Luke his true parentage and asked to join him and overthrow Palpatine to rule as father and son, we see Vader looking the Millenium Falcon being chased by the TIE fighters. Because of his mask, is impossible to read his expressions but is clear for me that this is one of his moments of “invisible vulnerability” that we normally see in Anakin by default. In fact, if it wasn’t for the dialogue and the lenght of the scene, it perfectly would had echoed the “Padmé’s Ruminations” scene in ROTS: Anakin/Vader looks through a window towards the place where his wife/son is, and transmit his feelings to her/calls his son throught telepathy or Force bond. He doesn’t calls Luke with the distant Skywalker as he did at first, but instead he calls him by his name, and “Son”. It’s pretty obvious he wants Luke at his side, no just to have him as his apprentice or only to overthrow Palpatine with, but mainly, mainly because he wants his family with him.
After Padmé died, there was nothing for him to live for, nothing for him to care for, except the Emperor whom he grew to care about just because he was the only thing left (in his own damaged view). Then, after 22 years, he discovers that the baby he and his wife gladly expected, the baby (still doesn’t know there were twins) that in his own words gave him “the happiest moment of his life” and that he believed dead along with Padmé survived and was now more close to him than ever (close in the sense that Luke was now a more known enemy instead like, the anonymous teenage boy who lived in Tatooine). Because of that, he’s starting to show more emotion, as well attitudes that were very much Anakin’s. Yeah, no exactly good attitudes, but the thing is that he’s starting to feel again (don’t know if I explain myself), he’s slowly regaining his humanity. And that, is the very first step towards the redemption he will get thanks to Luke in the next film.
Basically, Anakin was buried in Vader when Padmé died, and was brought out of Vader when Luke appeared.
In the nineteenth century, the concept of normal entered European culture, as it related to the concept of the average; normalcy thus began with the creation of measurements and statistics. Qualities are represented on a bell curve, and the extremes of the curve are abnormal. Statistics were created as state tools (hence their etymology, as stat(e)istics) and, with the advent of modernity, as “political arithmetic”. It is hard to imagine that before the advent of modernity and capitalism, governing bodies did not make decisions based considerably on crime, poverty, birth, death, and unemployment rates. This new form of governance is what Foucault characterized as biopolitics. Indeed, it is exactly this new-found ability to measure performances of individuals and groups that makes them governable.

20 Disney’s Atlantis Facts (You may or may not know)
- After Hunchback of Notre Dame was released, Disney decided they didn’t want to do another musical. Instead, they chose to do an Action-Adventure film inspired by the works of Jules Verne.
- The weaponry used is correct to the time period of early 20th century. The film features the Lee Enflied, the Lewis Gun, the Broomhandle Mauser and a variant of the Luger.
- The creation of the Atlantean language was done by the same man who developed the Klingon language for the Star Trek films.
- The filmmakers became interested in the readings of Edgar Cayce and decided to incorporate some of his ideas. (Edgar Cayce is an American psychic who allegedly possessed the ability to answer questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis and future events while in a trance.)
- Vinnie’s last name “Santorini” is actually the name of an ancient chain of volcanic islands in the Mediterranean (probably explains his obsession with explosives).
- They utilized all three Disney Animation studios, employing 250 animators, artist and technicians.
- The Crew actually traveled 800 feet underground in New Mexico’s Carlsbad Cavern to view subterranean trails, which they used as the base model for the movie.
- A Japanese anime film “Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water” and “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” were both inspired by the novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”.
- American comic book artist Mike Mignola creator of the series Hellboy worked on the film.
- Joss Whedon was the first writer involved with the film. Whedon is bet known as the creator of the television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and also directed Marvel’s The Avengers.
- Because the movie was planned as an Action-Adventure, the production crew made up t-shirts that read, “ATLANTIS” - fewer songs, more explosions.
- The final scene was created by combining many 24 inch (61cm) pieces of paper. Each piece was carefully drawn and combined with animated vehicles flying across the scene. The entire piece reaches an equivalent of an 18,000 inch (457.2 m) piece of paper that the camera slowly pulled away from.
