FC Bayern München 6:0 SV Werder Bremen | 10/18/14
Xabi Alonso | Post-Match Interview.
About his goal: “Well, I saw the idea here on this pitch last year when Madrid played and Cristiano scored like that so I remember it and [the goal] came from there: make them jump and shoot low. And well, I’ve had a bit of luck.”
Anonymous said: Sorry, I'm a big fan of LOTR, your posts and equality and it was an unnessisarily rude comment. But was it really sexist? I think she was just stating a fact. He was in the books, and Tauriël wasn't. That's true. Is that sexist? I'm just wondering.


Ok, here’s the thing about posts like that. Here’s some things that weren’t in the films that weren’t in the book:

  • Radagast
  • Kili being poisoned with a morgul arrow
  • Legolas
  • Azog
  • The entire Ringwraith subplot thing
  • A lot of the films as a whole

However, I rarely, if ever, see people taking issue with the inclusion of the above. If people do take issue with aforementioned plot points, it’s in generally well thought out meta or a critique of the films as a whole. However, when it comes to the inclusion of Tauriel, suddenly everyone is up in arms about how ‘she wasn’t in the books’ and subsequently is not deserving of a.) screen time b.) graphics & gifs c.) character analysis. I have no issue with people being annoyed about the Hobbit films largely deviating from the the canon material, even if I happen to enjoy the bulk of the deviations myself. 

However, the vast majority of the criticism garnered towards Tauriel is borne out of sexism. While it is absolutely true she was not in the books, I’m disappointed by how many people refuse to acknowledge her presence not only as a positive aspect of the film adaptation, but very much in line with so many of the themes Tolkien championed in his works. It’s not fair that Tauriel is singled out and more or less shamed/looked down upon for “not being part of the books”, when so much of the films deviate enormously from canon material. 


Everyone points out that Robert Downey Jr basically IS Tony Stark, but the same can be said for Mark Ruffalo who basically IS Bruce Banner.


I mean-









It’s pretty obvious-


That he-



 IS Bruce Banner.

Argentina diceme como se siente…


I think we all know what’s coming tomorrow!

"It was one of the best games of my career for Manchester United and I’m really happy with the saves, the win and for the team as well. It’s difficult to say something about the crowd. When they sing your name like this, it is unbelievable."

#YES! #football: seleção #football


Don’t worry, you guys, there’s a counter to all the teams who want to slag off United for not being in the Champions’ League.

If a Liverpool fan asks you where we are in the CL, ask them where they’ve been since 2009. 

If a City fan asks you how it feels like not to be playing in the CL, ask them how it feels like never to have won it. Ever.

If an Arsenal fan brags about being in the CL while United isn’t, tell them that the real difference between the two clubs is United never celebrating fourth place like they’ve won the thing. Offer them 20 examples to back this point up.

If a Chelsea fan tells you that they’re going to win it again this year, tell them that they will still have won it one less than us. Whoops. 

Alternatively, use their criticism to feed your rage until you get so angry that you bite their head off. Bury the body in a forest somewhere.
