What’s your favorite idea?
Mine is being creative.
How do you get that idea?
I just try to think creatively!
Now, when you look at this orange, tell me, please, what do you see?
It’s just a boring old orange!
Maybe to you, but not to me.
I see a silly face! Walking along, and smiling at me!
I don’t see what you mean!
‘Cause you’re not thinking creatively!
So, take a look at my hair!
I use my hair to express myself!
That sounds really boring.
I use my hair to express myself!
Now, when you stare at the clouds in the sky, don’t you find it exciting?
C’mon, take another look!
Oh wait! I can see a hat! I can see a cat! I can see a man with a baseball bat!
I can see a dog! I can see a frog! I can see a ladder leaning on a log!
I think you’re getting the hang of it now! Using your minds to have a good time!
I might paint a picture of a clown!
Whoa there, friend, you might need to slow down!
Here’s another good tip!
Of how to be a creative whiz kid!
Go and collect some leaves and sticks, and arrange them into your favorite color!
Blue! Red! Green!
Green is not a creative color.
There’s one more thing that you need to know, before you let your creativity flow.
Listen to your heart, listen to the rain, listen to the voices in your brain!
Come on, guys, let’s get creative!
Now let’s all agree to never be creative again!
Casting appreciation gif.
This seriously pisses me off because TWO men of the “correct” ethnicity/race were asked to play the role of Khan. I don’t remember their names because this back when Into Darkness was in casting yo but they BOTH DECLINED.
So there’s a HUGE difference between “well, we asked the best in the business and they both said no, so we should go with another actor of the ‘incorrect’ race who is also very well suited for the role” and doing what the Hunger Games did which is literally only let white girls audition for Katniss.
When actors decline there is fuckall you can do. It’s shitty, no doubt, that Khan ended up being white, but BC did a great job in the role, while knowing he was third choice. I won’t begrudge him for taking it, and I won’t begrudge the casting crew for going with him after their best actors declined.
I was not aware that actors of other races were offered the role first and then declined, actually. This is literally the first time anyone has ever talked about it where I can see it? It really changes a fair amount of my opinion on the matter.
This doesn’t change a damn thing. There are more than enough talented men of colour who would have done a better job than Bendywatch Cucumberditch and maybe we would have gotten a new star instead of the same old lineup of white faces idk????
THERE ARE MORE THAN TWO NON-WHITE MALE ACTORS IN THE ACTING WORLD I PROMISE YOU.
Remember how Kangaroo Jack was relentlessly marketed as a family film about a talking kangaroo in a hoodie who does impressions in the trailers and commercials and was even nominated for an MTV Movie Award for best CGI character and his nominee clip reel included all those scenes specifically and then you finally got around to seeing Kangaroo Jack when it was on cable and it turned out to be a movie about two friends looking for a sweater and also Christopher Walken wants to kill them and the kangaroo was actually barely in the movie? Actually here’s a better question do you fucking remember Kangaroo Jack
