Never not reblog Morticia Addams
I love the expression on her face in the last one. “Can you believe she was going to use such a small blade?”
Anjelica Huston is perfection. I feel like this performance is a fundamental part of who I am as a woman. Don’t we all wish to be as elegant, dangerous and sarcastic?
For some reason a bird speaking Japanese is mildly off putting.
> Literal translation
Bird:” ‘Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.”
Bird: “What’s wrong?”
Owner: “Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.”
Bird: “Okay, understood.”
Owner: “Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.”]
Bird: “Okay, I understand!”
Owner: “Got it.”
> That’s clearly some sort of Pokemon.
> Off-putting? It’s like birds were meant to speak Japanese!
> For some reason it’s never occurred to me that birds can mimic languages other than English. It’s so cool, though!
The world will soon understand why birds are so awesome and deserve to be our overlords.

I SAW ALKALINE TRIO LAST NIGHT! They opened their European tour last night in Oxford and it was my 23rd birthday so I had to go! I got to the front and spent the whole set in front of Matt Skiba, the set was amazing and I was singing along the whole time. And I managed to get the set list at the end by howling “it’s my birthday!” at the roadie :3
Spent an hour outside in the cold but it was worth it to get my set list signed and to MEET ALKALINE TRIO OMG my inner 15-yr-old was so psyched!!
Contemporary Art Week!
The Daughter of Dawn, an 80-minute feature film, was shot in July of 1920 in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Lawton, southwest Oklahoma. It was unique in the annals of silent film (or talkies, for that matter) for having a cast of 300 Comanches and Kiowas who brought their own clothes, horses, tipis, everyday props and who told their story without a single reference to the United States Cavalry. It was a love story, a four-person star-crossed romance that ends with the two main characters together happily ever after. There are two buffalo hunt sequences with actual herds of buffalo being chased down by hunters on bareback just as they had done on the Plains 50 years earlier.
The male lead was played by White Parker; another featured female role was played by Wanada Parker. They were the son and daughter of the powerful Comanche chief Quanah Parker, the last of the free Plains Quahadi Comanche warriors. He never lost a battle to United States forces, but, his people sick and starving, he surrendered at Fort Sill in 1875. Quanah was the son of Comanche chief Peta Nocona and Cynthia Ann Parker, the daughter of Euro-American settlers who had grown up in the tribe after she was kidnapped as a child by the Comanches who killed her parents. She was the model for Stands With a Fist in Dances with Wolves.
You can watch the first ten minutes of the film here. It is over 90 years old, and was produced by, directed by, and stars Native American people.
