My mom just called me over to the TV to show me this ADORABLE and super-well animated commercial for Oreos with a jingle sung by Owl City.
I’ve never seen a commercial so charming and fun! The song is def gonna be stuck in my head.tr
Also, does anybody know who animated it? It’s very good!!
Oh wow, that’s adorable!! I’d also really like to know who animated it, it’s really well-designed and I love the style and use of color!

I am actually really excited about Tauriel in The Hobbit. She sounds like she’ll be a really cool addition to the story. Plus besides the first time we see Arwen, there isn’t really a kickass elf woman. I trust Peter and Fran and them, I’m not worried in the slightest.
I disagree with the statement that besides Arwen there wasn’t a kickass elf woman. Why does everyone overlook Galadriel? She’s freaking awesome!
I agree with annexlearnedhazard. A woman does not need to wield a sword for her to be a strong character. And a sword does not make a female character “good.”
Being a “badass” doesn’t mean that the character will be dimensional or interesting; in fact, if a character’s main points are that the character is a badass and that the character has a romantic arc, then it seems like the character has a high probability of being flat. I got in an argument once with someone over Tauriel, and she seemed convinced that a warrior-woman character automatically meant that the character wouldn’t be flat — despite the fact that all we know about her is a series of one cliche after the other. (Warrior woman, forbidden/unrequited love, etc.)
While no one can pass judgement just yet, the general logic of that is completely untrue. It doesn’t matter the gender; a one-dimensional character will always be one-dimensional, and no amount of fighting skills can fix that.
I'm not mean. I'm a thousand years old, and I ju: Guys. Let’s do some research before we meme. There is no Greenleaf... ➙
Guys. Let’s do some research before we meme.
There is no Greenleaf Greenleaf. It’s just Legolas.
Greenleaf is not his fucking surname.
- Legolas is a Silvan dialect form of the Sindarin Laegolas. Which means ‘Greenleaf’.
- It’s just his name translated.
- Laeg = green - it’s a rare spelling, and the word is normally replaced by calen.
- Golas = a collection of leaves or foliage.
- So technically he’s called Calengolas. Or something like that.
- Either way, Greenleaf’s not his surname.
There is no Greenleaf Greenleaf. Tolkien Moon Moon is a lie.
Just posting this because while I know it’s a joke, I don’t like misleading info being passed around.
we weren’t children after death
already sick at five and six,
in our lungs
we sold bouquets of dandelions
obnoxious yellow pools with sticky stems
you were charismatic even then
at eleven i was coke
and at twelve you were my heroin—
when we held each other close
while we tied each other’s nooses
you drew blood from all the bruises on me,
you drew blood
you drew love
you drew blood and love from me—
i learned something about people, then
if i’m destroyed, i can’t destroy
if you destroy, you cannot self-destruct
