I'm a nerd. I love all things Harry Potter (I'm a Hufflepuff). I love good books and great writers (Stephen King!). I love to bake cupcakes. I also love to sew clothes and to be crafty in general. I love music (especially Josh Ritter), good TV shows, and an eclectic mix of movies. Oh and I believe in yesterday (and Sherlock) :D

When we were brainstorming ideas for what to call ourselves someone asked me “Well what’s your favorite book written by a southern writer?” i blurted “Jubilee by Margaret Walker” Jubilee it was.
"Keeping hatred inside makes you git mean and evil inside. We supposen to love everybody like God love us. And when you forgives you feels sorry for the one what hurt you, you returns love for hate, and good for evil. And that stretches your hear and makes you bigger inside with a bigger heart so’s you can love everybody when your heart is big enough. Your chest gets broad like this, and you can lick the world with a loving heart! Now when you hates you shrinks up inside and gets littler and you squeezes your heart tight and you stays so mad with peoples you feel sick all the time like you needs the doctor. Folks with a loving heart don’t never need no doctor."
From Jubilee by Margaret Walker
I remember reading Jubilee for my 11th grade english class. It was the first book I was assigned in school that I couldn’t wait to get home and read. Jubilee is a massive sprawling story about slavery, family, and finding freedom no matter the cost. I spent hour after hour emerged in Ms. Walker’s words. I lived and breathed that novel for weeks and was filled with hope and courage from Vyry’s story.
My favorite thing about the novel was the dialogue it started in class. I went to an overwhelmingly conservative school, but in my English class, taught by Mickie Knight, I felt like I could voice my opinions and be heard. Ms. Knight encouraged us to talk about the novel and only interfered when we got off subject or were not respecting other students. We talked openly about race and racism and argued about the state of racism in our school and our state. I had many heated conversations in her classroom, but I felt safe and I felt like my voice was heard.
Growing up in the south was hard for me. Most of my family is conservative and most are also openly racist and homophobic. As soon as I knew what those ideas meant, this deeply troubled me. I grew up with my family telling me that it was wrong to date a black man and to be careful even being friends with my black peers. This didn’t make sense to me at all. A lot of my family used the excuse that they were raised that way, that they didn’t know any better, but wasn’t I raised the same way? And I knew better. I hoped and dreamed and prayed for better. I still do. And I believe that Mississippi can be better.
One of my friends said to me recently that Mississippi isn’t the state she wants it to be but she believes that if enough people try, it could be a state she’s proud to call home. I believe that to. I have to. And Jubilee is about trying to do just that. By giving back to public school arts programs and giving required reading books to schools in the delta, I believe we can have some impact on what we want our home state to be. The arts and beautiful words of southern writers made me want to live in a better Mississippi and hopefully they will encourage the next generation to fight for that as well.

"Samuel L. Jackson seriously wants to be in the new Star Wars movies. He doesn’t care how it happens, he doesn’t care how many arms he has or how dead he is, or if he has to somehow do this as Nick Fury instead of Mace Windu."
Is there anyone among us who doesn’t think Star Wars could use a little Nick Fury? (Source)
…it’s a universe with a well-established history of just cloning the shit out of people at the slightest excuse. Samuel L. Jackson could theoretically play every role in the next movie without it being that implausible, by Star Wars standards.
Holy shit I would pay twice the going rate for a movie ticket to see a film performed entirely by Samuel L. Jackson. I don’t even care what film. Star Wars, Pride & Prejudice, Sherlock Holmes, The Godfather…Any. Movie.
“From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and fucking conceit made me realize that you were the last motherfucker in the world I could ever be fucking prevailed upon to marry.”
It is a truth fucking universally acknowledged that a single motherfucker in possession of a giant motherfucking fortune must be in want of a goddamn wife.
“The fucking recollection of what I said—of my fucking conduct, my fucking manners, my motherfucking expressions during it, is now, and has been many fucking months, goddamned painful to me. Your reproof, I shall never fucking forget: ‘had you behaved like less of a motherfucker.’ Those were your goddamned words. You know not, you can scarcely fucking conceive, how they have tortured me.”
“Really, Watson, you fucking excel yourself,” said Holmes, pushing back his chair and lighting a cigarette. “I am bound to say that in all the fucking accounts which you have been so good as to give of my own small achievements you have fucking habitually underrated your own motherfucking abilities. It may be that you are not yourself fucking luminous, but you are a motherfucking conductor of light. Some people without possessing genius have a fucking remarkable power of stimulating it. I confess, my dear fellow, that I am very much in your fucking debt.”
Motherfucker, mama always said life was like a box of fucking chocolates. You never fucking know what you’re gonna get.
To fuck up a motherfucker or to not fuck up a motherfucker, that is the question.
Guys this is the kind of thinking that got Snakes On A Plane made
But soft! What fucking light through yon motherfucking window breaks! It is the fucking east, and that motherfucker Juliette is the fucking sun
“Harry, you’re a mothafuckin wizard.”
“Bitch, did I stutter?”
“A little motherfucking sea-bathing would set me up for fucking ever.”
“About three goddamn things I was absolfuckinglutely postive. First, Edward was a motherfucking vampire. Second, there was a part of his sparkly blood drinking ass — and shit if I know how strong that part of the cold bastard might be — that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was fucking unconditionally, irrefuckinvocably, in motherfucking love with the pale ass blood drinking motherfucker. “
We want the finest motherfuckin’ cakes known to humanity. We want them fuckers here and we want them fuckers now!
“One day, and that fuckin’ day may never come, I may call upon your bitch ass to do me a motherfuckin’ favor. But for now, consider this a fuckin’ piece of generosity on the day of my daughter’s fuckin’ wedding.”
“You cannot fucking stain a motherfucking black coat.”
“And none for Gretchen motherfucking Weiners, bye.”
“My good fucking opinion, once lost, is lost forever, motherfucker.”
We must be as swift as the fucking cold river, with all the force of the badass typhoon, screw shit up like the goddamn fire, mysterious as the mutherfucking dark side of the motherfucking moon.
“I’M FLYING MOTHERFUCKERS!”
The wand chooses the god damn wizard motherfucker!
Mr. Kane was a man who got everything he wanted and then lost it. Maybe Motherfucker was something he couldn’t get, or something he lost. Anyway, it wouldn’t have explained anything; I don’t think any word can explain a man’s life. No, I guess Motherfucker is just a… piece in a jigsaw puzzle… a missing piece.”
Guys Star wars happens “A long long time ago, In a galaxy Far Far away” Fury hasn’t been born yet in them.
Only if you assume that George Lucas was making a documentary. Otherwise for all we know the actual intended audience of the piece was Jack Harkness sitting around on Boeshane in the year 5122.
Also this seems to indicate a despicable lack of faith in the time travel abilities of Nick Fury.
Or that you think our current Nick Fury is not himself potentially a clone of the Furies that existed a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
…and now I am picturing Samuel L. Jackson as all three Greek Furies.
“We’re here for vengeance, motherfuckers!”
Either way, you’ll be receiving a visit from Director Fury shortly. I strongly suggest you have an explanation prepared.
Perfect post is perfect!!
