my favourite story in greek mythology is when hermes stole apollo’s cows THE DAY HE WAS BORN and made a lyre out of their gut and apollo brought a fucking baby to zeus and was like ‘this baby stole my cows’
and zeus was like ‘you’re a baby you couldn’t steal cows’
and apollo is literally like “HE STOLE MY COWS”
and hermes is like “ya lol” and then shows the lyre and apollo is like “NO WAIT I’M THE GOD OF MUSIC GIVE ME THAT”
and hermes is like “ok but i get cows” and apollo is like “hell yea”
zeus was like ‘very impressive, for a baby’
I’m crying real tears rn
My favorite part of any episode of this show is to watch how Giles is 600% done with everybody.
YOU HAVE VANQUISHED ME, MIGHTY BEAST
Cub: DAD STOP
Cub: DAD OH MY GOD
Lion: REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE…
I’m reading up on the Memoirs of a Geisha controversy, since I’d neither seen the movie nor read the book, and the more I read about it, the more pissed off I get. Basically it went down like this:
Japanese woman tells white American man about her past life as a geisha. White American man then writes a novel that sells itself as an accurate memoir of Japanese woman’s life, but instead falsifies a number of her life events, misrepresents her trade, and exoticises her culture. He also names her as a source even though she specifically asked him to keep her anonymous. Japanese woman gets death threats. White American man becomes bestselling author.
Then Japanese woman gets fed up and writes her own memoir to set the record straight. Meanwhile, white American man’s book gets adapted into a film that grosses $162 million and wins three Oscars.
This is why I can’t stand Memoirs of a Geisha and will side-eye anyone who claims that book as a favourite.
never read the book watched the movie wasn’t anything special the actors were nice to look at
