I did however see this on tumblr this morning:

The "6 December 8.30am" is when the blogger screen capped the tweet, not least because at the time of writing (9.55 6 December UK) it is not yet 6 December in HI. So when the original tweeter says "last night" he is referring to Friday night not Saturday night.

Go Scarlet Pimpernel Tom! Leap on that plane to Oregon (probably not...!!)

502 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 10:34 ID:RQNfBWIu

>>501 Yes,thats right. 8-35am ( 6.12) UK time is 8-35pm ( 5.12) in Hawaii, so "last night" is probably 4.12 ( Friday).

Good for him wherever he is. Hope he is having a ball and enjoying himself with the ladies.

504 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 12:38 ID:tB216AlG

>>503 Yes I hope so too. Sounds like it is a fun shoot. Probably good to have the variety. This time last year on ISTL he was eating one lettuce leaf a day, smoking and getting a trifle intense. I personally would prefer laser tag and Maui!

>>496 I googled "Elizabeth Olsen Oregon" for shits and giggles and look what I found lmao :

Relationships and family are indeed very important to the Avengers: Age of Ultron actress. She's already thinking about having kids with Holbrook—though she's not sure where she'd want to raise them. "My mother would love it if I was in L.A. with kids," she said. "I loved growing up in L.A., but I always think about places I've never been to before, like Oregon."

Still hoping he shows up at the BIFAs (even though it's unlikely). I want to have a closer look at SkullIsland!Tom.

>>505 I bet EO is enjoying Skull Island TH!

>>497 Lex/Cabbage Anon/ Anon - Do the decent and reasonable thing and use a name different than Anon(.)

We ALL know you by your posts - you're not anonoymous in that respect, so you might as well give yourself a set name that is different from an established board member.

507 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-06 13:58 ID:FoxK2GSK

This is going to be a long one, ladies. I apologize in advance.


Oh, Lex, what a tangled inter-web we weave...

You KNOW someone in production, do you? That's such a coincidence because when I headed over to The Town Bycycle (to see the reaction to the Door Sex Tweets) there was a ridiculously long submission attempting (badly) to debunk all connection between TH and EO.

That poster claimed to know someone in production as well. The poster also had a VERY distinctive grammar pattern. Now, I'm a language girl - that was my area of study and it's part of the job I do now, so I'm sensitive to language and the use of it - and as I was reading that post, I thought to myself, This is familiar. Very familiar.

AND then the poster used the phrase 'yellow pages.' Now to someone born in the US, yellow pages refers to a phone book's business directory. The same in the UK, I think (correct me if I'm wrong, Anon). But the poster used it to refer to tabloids. YOU"VE used it to refer to tabloids - Thread 3, post 156 - even though you were born in London and live in London. Remember, Lex, you were born in London and live there.

(Puts on NATO hat and researcher hat) Since you asked (even if you didn't), I'll tell you who uses the phrase 'yellow pages' or 'yellow magazines' to refer to tabloids: People from Russia and people from the areas that used to belong to Russia. So I would say you weren't born in London, I would say you were born in Russia, or maybe Georgia or Armenia or one of the Stans. Your language use supports that: Russian, Georgian and Armenian, they all have a case system (like Latin, Ancient Greek), and your grammar and syntax tell me that your native language is an inflected one. It is not English.

And 'Lex,' well, that's probably short for Aleksandra (always a popular one in Russia and Georgia and throughout the Caucasus.). Maybe you should use Alex or Aleksandra for your name here.

And as for knowing someone in production - no you don't. I don't need to give evidence for that, it's just common sense.

>>507 wow. Sherlock. Wow. You surely have time to write "ridiculous long posts " dont you? I have an excuse - I'm on vacation and have nothing to do now, but what about you? Language girl, sure, you know things unlike me. I have a good laugh how you hate to admit I am right about THUNGS generally . I wasn't even going to prove that what I say is legit. Time will tell. Like it did about Olsen and Tom.

And I'm sorry to disappoint you but my nickname Lex comes from Latin lex, my name is Maria, if you are interested. Just fyi.

And don't make your self look stupid, Russian and Armenian are indoeuropean languages when Georgian is not. Language girl. Sure, I can see that.

Unfortunatly to you I really do have a friend in production. But you will better tear your ads apart then admit I was right.

Just one reply, and then I'll ignore her. Scout's honor.


You have an excuse for writing that long post on the Town, you did write it. Thanks for clearing that up, even though it was completely obvious.

My excuse would be that it's Sunday.

Sure, Maria, sure. You selected lex, the Latin for 'law' as your handle on a message board. Nope, not buying it. Your name is Aleksandra or Alex or Lex, or even Lassie...but nice try. God loves a try-er.

And now we know that you are Georgian because you've given us a fact about your own language. But, just FYI, while it's not fully Indo-European, it does share many characteristics (because its linguistic predecessor mixed with Indo-European).

512 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 14:50 ID:RQNfBWIu

Ah so you have an exuze, good, good, I can sleep now.

I'm sorry to sound rude, but you need to see a specialist in mental disorders you know? All you say is such a crap that I ask my self why on earth I engaged in conversation with you. Eye roll. And when I say every thing I mean it. Including your language "studies". As I said, time will tell as it did already. And don't care if you believe me or not. Somebody asked, I answered. So go to hell language girl.

And as for my nationality, sorry, I'm Russian. All my knowledge comes from basic school knowledge. If you are that clever then you have to know thAt Russian system of education gives a basic knowledge that is far better then American. Language girl, lol lol. Please, I seriously ask you, read some books, please. You are even more stupid then I thought

514 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 14:55 ID:tB216AlG

>>507 All of this.

>>105 As Couch pointed out here, we know that Lex, cabbageanon and FakeAnon (as I shall call her) are the same person as all round Twitter and fandom favourite Firenbrenie. She initially insisted she wasn't but she's stopped denying it now. At >>297ff I described firenbrenie's Twitter description as hers and she didn't demur.

And, as I pointed out at >>322, Firenbrenie lives and works in - drumroll please - Tblisi (from her Twitter before she locked it). Which is in Georgia (the one which was formerly part of the USSR). I too spent a lot of my time studying inflected languages and FakeAnon's use of English is entirely consistent with Russian or one of its relatives being her first language - and, I'd venture, with it being the language she speaks first every day. Immersion doesn't eradicate all traces, but it softens the edges. In short, Lex wasn't born and raised in London, and she doesn't live there now. The yellow pages reference bears this out - I didn't pick up on that. Good spot. You are right - it is to any British person the large yellow phone book with adverts for plumbers and such.

The interesting thing is that you don't need a degree in linguistics to work this out; it gives itself away to any native speaker, especially when there is (to put it mildly) a lot of comparative material available. A lot of people have told the tea girls on tumblr they think the crazy letter to Toby came from firenbrenie:

I'll just leave one final thought for our resident troll, courtesy of another Toby (the one in The West Wing): "When even the internet doesn't want a piece of this, you have to ask yourself, how far from the pack have you strayed?"

515 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 15:04 ID:tB216AlG

>>513 Thanks for confirming, finally, that you are Russian and were educated in the Russian system. Let's take a look at what you you said at >>311 (also using the name Anon and the ID RQNfBWIu). Oh, you were born and raised in London. This is like shooting fish in a barrel. You can't even keep your story straight on the same board. I think we all know which of you and Anon. is the stupid one.

516 Name: qaz : 2015-12-06 15:11 ID:tY18OJ3i

And to think that Anon. was Lex's final and very patient apologist... But lo and behold, she managed to antagonize even her.

517 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 15:12 ID:RQNfBWIu

You do. When you look at yourself in the mirror.

You started first. I tried to be nice and wasn't insulting anyone. But hey why do I bother? You are dumb and there is no sense in talking to you.

518 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 15:37 ID:tB216AlG

>>517 The being nice and not insulting anyone part lasted about 5 posts into Pursegate before you started screaming at us and calling us over invested fangirls, issuing death threats to EO and telling us to "eat shit" on your Twitter. Don't try my patience and make me link back to all this. We all remember anyway because we didn't come down in the last shower.

Lex/Firenbrenie/FakeAnon - if you want acceptance here then at the very least stop posting under multiple names and stop telling such preposterous Munchausean stories. Revel openly in your status as the craziest person in all the TH fandom - after all, it's a title awarded from a very competitive field!

Ok stepping away from the underside of the bridge now. Promise.

>>518 Let's get out from under the bridge and talk about a really important topic: purses!

I'm thinking about replacing my T usting bag (bought in 2005 and still going strong, but starting to look a little shabby). Some of the stores around me have a few but not the one I want, so I'd need to order on-line. The exchange rate is unfavorable and then I'd need to fly it across an ocean (sorry, planet, sorry, ice shelf!).

So, Anon and anyone else, talk me out of it (totally talk me into it!).

523 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-06 17:51 ID:tl+qo9gx

This is more on CP's non-release in China. The author - like Anon - notes all the mentions of ghosts in Chinese literature and cinema. He thinks the sex scene (and incest theme) might have been a real reason CP wasn't released in China.

If it was more for the sex scene, my response would be: FOR THAT? For two seconds of arse, implied cunnilingus, a bit of around-the-world hip. It's not integral - cut it and give the movie a chance in one of the largest box office markets on the planet.

Nebreaska?! I am losing my mind. My excuse is that I have just been slut shamed by my mother over the phone for not making my own mince pies.

The bag website says they have a "vibrant" workforce. You have to buy one out of admiration for their unashamed butchery of the English language. Anyway, keeping your previous bag for 10 years? You're the most eco friendly person on the planet.

527 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-06 18:28 ID:fFrxE+qy


They are lovely, but sooo dear.

I was thinking of the Kimbolton tote in orange or cream. My original one is red and it gives me LIFE. One of the old, three-piece suiters (as we colonials called them) in the Foreign Office once referred to me as 'the American with the red handbag.' I'm thinking about putting that quote on my grave.

I think I may need to go for it.

528 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 18:30 ID:tB216AlG

>>523 - in fairness that 2 second shot of the TH botty did cause tumblr to grind (haha!) to a halt for several weeks!

I agree though that they could easily have cut it, and the fraternal handjob shot, out of the movie had they wanted to. However, as demonstrated at ComicCon, the person with the biggest stiffie over the sex scenes was GDT himself, so I imagine he said no.

529 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 18:38 ID:tB216AlG

>>527 think of it on a price per wear: say 300 days per year x 10 years....

Also you NEED a bag for Margaret Thatcher impressions, date nights with TH etc.

>>526 Not making your own mince pies!! You'll never snag TH as your second husband with those tarty ways.

TH expects that his mince pies will be made with your grandmother's WI pastry recipe and with mince you've made with peel from your organic garden's fruit. And don't forget the brandy you've distilled in your antique copper still.

Up your game, girl. We all know TH has high standards when it comes to his puds/pudds (spelling?) - puddings.

Well, Ben Wheatley just confirmed there's no TH - in that he might need to given an acceptance speech for him.

Ben Wheatley is a hoot. He said that he takes these awards more seriously than in the past, and thus tries to stay sober during them! That's honesty.

'Also you NEED a bag nights with TH etc.' I see what you did there - every girl needs a good sized purse to cover her face when out with TH.

I'd prefer you strap a bottle of your gin - or two - rather than a purse. I've got priorities.

Also, Domhnall Gleeson (who was just interviewed on the red carpet), once I'm done with TH, I'll be moving into your fandom, so get ready.

542 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 20:38 ID:tB216AlG

>>541 did you try real sloe gin while you were in the UK? Most stuff you can buy in the US is synthetically flavoured, but the home made stuff, made with real sloes, is divine. Contrary to its name it is also fast acting!

>>543 qaz, when you get to a monitor of some sort, check out DG's acceptance speech for his father Brendan. LE didn't win for best supporting; he was actually HR's best bet according to those who'd seen the movie. Now I'm not so hopeful for TH :(. DG's speech was hilarious. Also, check him out in Frank - he's very good in that as well.

>>544 He's got those Irish ginger genes, to be sure, but - like TH - it's all about the personality, baby. He's off the charts funny, and seems like a good time.

>>544 qaz isn't from Lithuania - she's from Nebraska too! The lies! Kidding. Both qaz and Couch (who I also think is a non-native English speaker) take names and kick arse when it comes to speaking English!! So good. And the true test is they both can be funny in English - not an easy task in a second language (or a first, really!).

>>545 I like redheads too (Damian Lewis - and I have actually met him in our local coffee shop, as well as once almost running him over when he walked behind my car while I was reverse parking, tsk). Mr Gleeson looks like a very dear friend of mine who happens to be gay, so maybe my subconscious is saying don't go there. Human attraction is a funny thing. I often wonder how TH manages to push so many buttons, especially after sporting a number of dramatically different looks in the last 5 years.

Are you UK based? You have a real ear for idiomatic English.

After a few, I'd agree to most anything (reference aqueduct story above). He would get the gin from Fortnum and Mason (I would hope that it was a legit concoction, given what he probably paid for it).

Well, Tom won...Tom Hardy. Happily, he and his overly puckered mouth weren't there to collect it (frighten me.) Actually, DG collected it for him as well - so that was a win!

TH needs to do some twin work - that award bait.

551 Name: Anon : 2015-12-06 21:51 ID:tB216AlG

>>548 It would be a lot closer. The UK bought stuff is I hope made with real sloes not with flavouring. But the magical thing about sloe gin (apart from its ability to make one consent cheerfully to things one might later regret, hence my intended usage of it on TH) is that it is easy and cheap to make yourself and the homemade stuff tastes so infinitely better than anything you could buy. Basically you find a sloe bush (the only hard part of the exercise), pick off a pound or so and take home. Wash, dry and then if feeling anally retentive, prick each sloe with a pin. Put in a jar with a bottle of gin and 6-8 ounces of sugar. Leave in a dark cupboard for a year. Drain off sloes and bottle. Shake occasionally to dissolve sugar and to feel involved in process. Any middle class English boy, incl TH, will have aunts, grannies and probably a mum who makes this stuff. It is as purple as a cardinal's robe and the older it is the better it gets, though leaving it more than a year and 1 day is the challenge.

552 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-06 21:57 ID:aHqG/RuB


Here's my fav of ginger Tom. It's also my favorite of his - many - hairdos. It's so fluffy and natural looking. It also makes him look young. I don't know if it's his natural curls brushed out - and without all the product he usually puts in - or if it's a last remnants of a straightening process with the curls just starting to come back.

Either way - I love it. And he's doing the signature TH pose with his arm brought up to his face. I've always wondered where he picked that up.

559 Name: anonsy : 2015-12-07 01:50 ID:D5Aqosgp

>>558 Sounds like the same girl whose tweet I saw yesterday. I just really don't see why in the world he'd be in Oregon. The EO sightings being true would make more sense (disclaimer: I don't believe those either).

Honestly, in general, I don't think most Twitter sightings are real. There are a few Hawaii locals who just happen to keep running into Tom, and posting about it on Twitter every time - and every time they get more Twitter followers! One in particular I think did see him the first time but enjoyed all the attention, so they kept "seeing" him after that. Either that or they're coincidentally showing up in all of the places he's been hanging around - accidentally of course.

But I mean, nobody would make up a story about Tom or exaggerate something just to get Twitter or Instagram or Tumblr followers, right? Just ask Town Bike.

>>559 I know who you are talking about! She was over the moon with the attention.

Mind you, if I met TH, I'd probably just stay standing where we'd met and not move in the hopes that he'd circle around again - because two times, same place, that's a date. And then I'd tweet it, and IG it and do a youtube vid.

Oh, Lord. I'd side-eye this, but I don't want to hurt my eyes.

I think this is new. Even if it's not, it's well worth a watch:

And another one from LL, this time featuring an Abe Lincoln impression. I'd be interested to know how good the accent is here. Sounded a trifle wobbly to me - but I formed the impression that the great man mighty have had a tot or two from the bottle before performing that night!

'And you know what would happen in Dragonfly-Land if he ever came out before he got middle-aged and bald and they didn’t care anymore . . .'

One of my favorites. It took me a google search a few weeks ago to figure out why his fandom was called dragonfly land. My first thought was that it referred to The Dragon School - but that was too left field, so I had to investigate further.

Just imagine if that jacket had been embroidered with something else!

567 Name: Anon : 2015-12-07 19:00 ID:tB216AlG

>>566 He looks unfeasibly sexy in that jacket. And Not Tom. I do wish sometimes that he was a bit more left field in his clothing choices. He is so skinny he'd fit the sample sizes, and much prettier than most male catwalk models.

568 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-07 19:40 ID:8GLG1MAn

Ewwww. Still, there are a few ladies who'd pay good money to do this.

ps did every bloke working on CP have some kind of TH man crush?

HR's US distribution rights have been picked up. There is a God.

I would think that it will make its way to my part of the woods - not sure about Nebraska - sorry Anon and qaz.

571 Name: Anon : 2015-12-07 22:45 ID:tB216AlG

>>570 lol

Not sure when the UK release date is - March?

572 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-08 00:09 ID:8GLG1MAn

Apparently, Kong: Shit Island has transformed a museum in HI into the 'Hotel Saigon.'

What the hell is this movie? Helicopters, swanky fake hotels, a giant monkey, an elixir for eternal youth.

My head hurts.

573 Name: Anon : 2015-12-08 14:46 ID:tB216AlG

>>572 And here it is playing its part. Apparently originally off Reel Tours' Twitter but then deleted by him for some reason. A fancy pants evening party!

574 Name: Anon : 2015-12-08 17:06 ID:tB216AlG

Popped over to CB and nanny war is raging! CP was not a flop! ISTL not released yet so you can't call it a flop! Etc.

Apparently CP is saved by not having been quite such a turkey as Steve Jobs and that starred, y'know, Fassy, so TH has nothing to worry about. Stands to reason. Errrrr.....

575 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-08 21:22 ID:8GLG1MAn


Has the veranda burned down? What's the body count?

CP wasn't a flop critic-wise. It's not like Aloha, in that some critics liked it and audiences were receptive to it.

However, at the box office - totally turkey. It cost a fair amount to make, and the promo budget was NOT small - think about all the places to which the stars and director travelled - along with their entourage and groomers and so on. Print, tv, media adverts - those cost a pretty penny. So, it will probably not make its money back (even with DVD sales). And if it doesn't make its money back - floppy like a disk from the 1980s!

That having been said - nearly every movie that opened in October was a bit of a flop at the box office. I was reading an article about it - the industry was a little shocked as October movies usually do okay.

576 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-08 21:34 ID:8GLG1MAn


I think some people believe that it's almost sacrilege to speak ill of TH and his movies. Don't mention the words flop or failure or poor performance!! God forbid.

Not that the comparison is the best but - Hello, Daniel Day-Lewis and the movie Nine. Hello, Robert DeNiro and Meet the Fockers. Great actors sometimes make bad choices. And sometimes they make crap movies that don't do well critically or at the box office.

CP and ISTL aren't going to make us forget THC, TA or his run in Coriolanus. So let's be honest about their quality.

And, hey, at least it's not The Pirate Fairy. That shizza was bad (confession: I haven't actually seen all of TPF, but listening to 2 minutes was enough.)!

>>576 The Pirate Fairy was a masterpiece of cinema! Tom should have won an Oscar for that performance. How dare you.


579 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-08 21:42 ID:8GLG1MAn

A, frankly, poor result in the beard department - but I would not kick him out of bed.

580 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-08 21:44 ID:8GLG1MAn

Here's TH telling us that he wants to explore our (collective) body - and then licking his lips afterward. The little fecker!

581 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-08 21:49 ID:8GLG1MAn


Right, wasn't it?!? What's wrong with me? How can I not see the genius.

TPF is actually what worries me about Kong. Because when he did TPF, he said stuff about it that sounds similar to the stuff he's saying about K:SI: it's a great addition to the myth of Captain Hook, they storyline is so unexpected, it takes the character/story into a completely new place.

Yep, pull the other one - it's got bells on it.

582 Name: Anon : 2015-12-08 21:57 ID:tB216AlG

>>576 It is very funny. CP is named one of Forbes' biggest flops, and was only the 15th biggest flop so it is a success! They should go into politics.

I did enjoy CP very much, although alive to its various faults, mostly because the set and TH looked so lush. However Pan's Labyrinth it was not. And for a movie on which, as you say, no marketing expense was spared, it did appallingly.

I haven't seen the Pirate Fairy - I saw a clip of him singing and dancing along and that was enough!

I am being thick here. TA?

583 Name: Anon : 2015-12-08 22:01 ID:tB216AlG

>>579 I hate him with this beard with a passion. I think possibly I am traumatised by the 1883 shoot (shirtless by yucca plant, white transparent leggings et al). In contrast to Hsntry IV in which I think he looks hawt.

584 Name: Anon : 2015-12-08 22:09 ID:tB216AlG

>>581 I think (controversial viewpoint ahead) that he stumbles onto his good projects by accident. It doesn't take a genius to realise that the Henriad for BBC is likely to be ok; or that Ternce Davies directing a Rattigan play will probably work out. Other projects such as Marvel - well, at that stage in your career I imagine you take the chance irrespective of the script or the talent. When faced with a choice of new material, he does not necessarily know how to pick a good script. I was put in mind of his comments on ISTL (with a bit less slush) - not a wonderful,omen as we have heard that it was the script that let that project down.

>>582 TA = The Avengers? I just figured out THC = The Hollow Crown.

586 Name: qaz : 2015-12-09 06:56 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>582 You're not thick, I actually went to IMDB to review his projects for this and had to go through the list twice to realise that TA = The Avengers. I need my morning coffee.

Since we're sharing favourite pics - I loved how he looked with longish blonde (or not so blonde) hair.

587 Name: Anon : 2015-12-09 10:39 ID:tB216AlG

>>586 Dottie, your acronyms have bamboozled us all!

I also love him with longer hair, like this for example - showing how versatile he is with a variation on Anon.'s favourite "arm brought up to face" pose!

588 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-09 21:29 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>584 He still talks glowingly about ISTL's script - which is strange for the reason you point out.

He's well read - to say the least - he should be more sensitive to what is a good script and what is a stinker.

589 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-09 21:40 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>585 >>586 >>587

These are accepted acronyms in the TH fandom. Come on, people, work with me!!

It's clear that I'm his biggest fan - but not in an Annie Wilkes sort of way...or maybe in an Annie Wilkes sort of way! TH, baby, I will pull your body from the snowy car crash and make you love me in our cozy mountain hideaway.

>>590 This was just after filming Henry IV I think - it is Hal hair. Do we think it is close to his natural colour - whatever that is? I was looking at his hair in Toronto etc and can't decide if he is dyeing it - there is more than a suspicion of highlights in some photos:

Re the acronyms: clearly I am not so much an uber fan as an unter fan! In my defence I was bewildered by you putting The Avengers in the same sentence as The Hollow Crown - I love his role in that but I find the film a bit meh, especially compared to the 2 Thor movies.

592 Name: Anon : 2015-12-09 23:04 ID:tB216AlG

On a totally non TH note (for once!) can I just say that tonight the hubby is away so I switched on the Apple TV and and it directed me towards Working Girl, which I haven't seen in maybe 20 years. What a great movie. Quite aside from being directed by Mike Nicholls and starring Harrison Ford when he was seriously hot, it features Alec Baldwin, Oliver Platt and Kevin Spacey in bit parts. I just looked it up on IMDb and it is 27 years old. Sheesh.

593 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-09 23:05 ID:8GLG1MAn

>>591 What? A chance to speculate on TH's hair color? Yeah, I'll take it on a Wednesday night!

I think his TNM (yep, another one) hair was highlighted - it's just too blonde. I think it was stripped and re-dyed after ISTL (No. 2) finished shooting. In that pic from his South Sudan trip in Feb. - it's just too blonde and brassy to be natural.

I think some of that was still in effect during PGG (#3) and maybe even during his time at TIFF (that's 4) - at least in the front.

But by the time of the CP (5 - if you're keeping count) promo tour, I think it was fairly au natural.

All of Anon. (AKA Dottie)'s posts now feature added acronyms!

594 Name: Anon. : 2015-12-09 23:09 ID:8GLG1MAn


I like TA Loki more than Thor or TTDW Loki. He's just so thoroughly bad in TA - very little empathy or kindness, just a hot piece of revenge and hate and megalomania wrapped in leather.

595 Name: Anon : 2015-12-09 23:10 ID:tB216AlG


W.T.F. with the acronyms?

596 Name: Anon : 2015-12-09 23:12 ID:tB216AlG

>>594 damn right I love HIM. It's the Avengers I find tedious. The only one worth a damn is Tony Stark, with or without the magic suit. Otherwise we have: Captain America, a man who thinks he is a superhero because his mother kno

597 Name: Anon : 2015-12-09 23:16 ID:tB216AlG

Argh! [rant continued unabated]

Knitted him a superhero suit; Black Widow, whose superhero quality is "I seduce you with my magical vagina and then break your neck", which I know we could ALL do if we wanted to; and the Jeremy Renner character, a man with a bow and arrow, god help us. When I see him I think of that scene where Indiana Jones watches some bloke do a huge sword waving display and then takes out his gun and shoots him. If it was just Tony and Loki duking it out it would have been so much better.

598 Name: Anon : 2015-12-09 23:48 ID:tB216AlG

>>594 Dottie, you are so naughty with your acronyms. In your honour we should henceforth call Thor simply, T.


599 Name: qaz : 2015-12-10 08:16 ID:tY18OJ3i

>>590 Then have you seen those? Two of my favourite gifs of him ever!

>>597 Bwahaha! You effectively summarised almost all of my feelings about TA (yay for acronyms!). Although Captain America was not so bad in The Winter Soldier (but only courtesy to the said Winter Soldier).

Well, whatever official governmental thoughts in China re incest themes in art, Torrilla does not share them, as she has uploaded a graphic gif of the fraternal hand job scene. Lucille's paw is more deeply buried in his groin than I recalled!
