i’m sorry but can we just take a moment to appreciate disney genderbending
at the perfection
in all of this
and let’s not forget the best one
i’m so satisfied
This is absolutely terrifying. Just look at it, it is so real and astonishing. You need to reblog this. I don’t care if you’re used to reblogging orange, teenage girls with vans on. I don’t care if you’re used to reblogging vintage or photography. This is real. You can even see the fury in his eyes. The tense muscles in between his fingers. The heavy breathing. reblog this. NOW.in all seriousness thoughM..my heart just stopped… ;~;Guys, you’ve got to reblog this. It’s reality and it needs to be brought to everyone’s attention.I lost a friend to this kind of harassment. I really don’t want to remind myself of everything that happened so I won’t say a word about it. All I will say is, he was one of my best friends and the kindest person I had ever known. The pain I went through after his death was indescribable. I want you all to know that it’s not easing knowing that someone you love had such thoughts that they didn’t deserve living anymore. I’m not good with words at all so please excuse this lousy paragraph I have attempted to write to move you. I am serious though. Don’t ignore this.i’m going to reblog forever.This kills me, please stop this.it seriously hurts to know people say thishow the fuck could you possibly send someone hate, or make rude comments when you know all to well that this could be the outcome, makes me sick. somebody please stop this from happening.
ALRIGHT STOP SCROLLING RIGHT NOW. REBLOG THIS. I DON’T CARE IF YOU ARE A HIPSTER, SUMMER, PHOTOGRAPHY, BOHO, SURF, WHATEVER BLOG. REBLOG THIS.

If Stuntmen from the old movies don’t have your full respect then I just don’t know what to say to you
l tried really hard not to reblog this
Yeah, it is indeed really hard not to reblog a fucking thing.
Can we all agree that the man in the first gif is the manliest man in the world?
Are we just going to all silently acknowledge that the last guy is clearly dead and that we just saw him die.
HOLD UP FOR A SECOND
ALL OF THESE GIFS ARE ONE MAN
THE SINGULAR BUSTER KEATON
WHILE FILMING THE GENERAL
HE SNAPPED HIS NECK ON THE RAILROAD TIES AND WENT HOME AND ICED HIS BODY
AND CAME BACK FOR WORK THE NEXT DAY
HE ONCE GOT HIS HIP RIPPED OUT OF ITS SOCKET BY A MALFUNCTIONING ELEVATOR AND WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH HIMSELF FOR BEING INJURED
HE ONCE HAD TO FALL 100 FEET DOWN A WATERFALL INTO A NET
A STUNTMAN TESTED IT AND BROKE BOTH LEGS AND DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER
BUSTER DID THE STUNT ANYWAY AND LANDED WITHOUT A SCRATCH
IN ‘THE HIGH DIVE’
BUSTER DID A TRICK DIVE THROUGH A CARDBOARD DECK THAT WAS CAMOUFLAGED TO LOOK LIKE THE REAL DECK
ONLY HE COULDN’T TELL FROM 100 FEET UP WHERE THE CARDBOARD STOPPED AND THE REAL DECK STARTED AND THERE WAS ONLY LIKE A THREE FOOT MARGIN FOR ERROR
AND WHEN HE HESITATED A SUDDEN BREEZE LITERALLY KNOCKED HIM OFF THE DIVING BOARD AND HE HAD TO JUMP ANYWAY
AND HE MISSED THE REAL DECK BY LESS THAN A FOOT BUT HE MADE IT
IN THE SECOND GIF HE’S RECREATING SOMETHING THAT THE ACTUAL GENERAL PURSUERS HAD TO DO IN THE CIVIL WAR
IF HE MISSES THAT TIE
THE TRAIN WILL BE DERAILED AND HE WILL DIE IN THE EXPLOSION
IN THE THIRD GIF AN ENTIRE HOUSE IS FALLING HE HAS ONE TAKE AND IF HE HAS NOT DONE THE CALCULATIONS CORRECTLY HE WILL BE CRUSHED
HE HAS AN INCH-WIDE MARGIN ON EACH SIDE
AND THE HOUSE LITERALLY BRUSHES HIS LEFT SHOULDER ON THE WAY DOWN
YOU CAN SEE HIS LEFT ARM JUMP BECAUSE HE’S FLINCHING FROM THE PAIN
THAT LAST GIF
HE WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE THAT JUMP
HE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO FALL AND THEY HADNT PLANNED FOR IT
BUT HE SURVIVED
BUSTER KEATON SURVIVED 100% OF THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE KILLED LESSER MEN INCLUDING WWI, TORNADOS, HOUSEFIRES, ALCOHOLISM, BROKEN NETS, CRUSHING DEPRESSION, THE DEPRESSION ITSELF, THE MCCARTHY WITCHHUNTS, THE END OF SILENT CINEMA, AND ABOUT 900 MORE OF THE STUNTS YOU SEE ABOVE
BUSTER LIVED TO BE 70 YEARS OLD
FATHERED LIKE FOUR KIDS AND EIGHT GRANDKIDS
HE CAME OUT THE OTHER SIDE OF ALL THAT
THINKING THAT LIFE WAS GOOD AND PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL
BUSTER KEATON IS NOT JUST A STUNTMAN
HE IS A GODDAMN SAINT
BUSTER KEATON’S PARENTS WERE PART OF A TRAVELING SHOW.
THEY WERE ACROBATS.
THEY TOOK BABY BUSTER UP HIGH IN THE AIR WITH THEM.
THEY DROPPED HIM.
LUCKILY SOMEONE WHO WAS STANDING UNDER THEM CAUGHT BABY BUSTER.
THAT MAN WAS HARRY HOUDINI.
HARRY HOUDINI SAVED BUSTER KEATON’S LIFE.
if you don’t think that’s the coolest shit you can get right out.
I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE BUSTER KEATON LOVE ON MY DASH YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA
WHERE IS THE BUSTER KEATON FANDOM SHOW ME THE WAY
"I WARNED YOU ABOUT STAIRS BRO!!!! I TOLD YOU DOG!"
“The character design of Flynn came from the process which was called the “hot man meeting” by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, during which they set up a meeting with all of the female employees of the studio in one room and asked them for their opinions of what made a man good looking in order to create Flynn’s character design with features such as eye color, hair color and style and body type. Video footage showed concept art and photos of various male celebrities, including Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Gene Kelly on the walls of the room. Director Byron Howard said they wanted to make Flynn “the most handsome, most attractive male lead Disney has ever had.”
"The hot man meeting" is now my second favorite animation design story, after the one about how Pixar animators working on the Dug team for Up had “fat dog day” where they basically went to a shelter and were like “please bring out your fattest dogs,” and then they hung out with the fattest jolliest available dogs, all day.
man would i love to be a pixar animator
Don’t forget Brave’s Kilt Fridays where all the animators wore kilts to work every friday during production.
This is why I want to work for these fun guys
THAT FIRST SITE IS EVERY WRITER’S DREAM DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I’VE TRIED WRITING SOMETHING AND THOUGHT GOD DAMN IS THERE A SPECIFIC WORD FOR WHAT I’M USING TWO SENTENCES TO DESCRIBE AND JUST GETTING A BUNCH OF SHIT GOOGLE RESULTS
I worked with a talented team of people who had experience running cons.
People keep asking me how I did it in my Tumblr asks, and here’s the truth: I had a built-in audience of my own, friendships with a couple dozen successful YouTubers, and a relationship with Melissa Anelli and Stephanie Dornhelm who had created and successfully run LeakyCon from scratch.
So if you want to know how someone could possibly start a con from scratch, ask those women, because they’re the only people I know who’ve done it and I want to be very clear that I did /not/ do it. They are the reason VidCon exists, and I had no idea what I was doing but they did and VidCon is forever in their debt (actually literally, since they are entitled to a permanent share of all VidCon proceeds.)
I’m not saying starting VidCon wasn’t hard, or that I didn’t literally bet my house on its success…I’m just saying I didn’t know how to do it so I paid people who did to help us (though they gave me a ridiculously inexpensive rate). They are the literal best and I feel shame when people assume I did it by myself.
HAIL MELISSA AND STEPHANIE AND THEIR WHOLE TEAM!
OK, so, I get to respond to this properly now:
Hank Green, you are the reason that VidCon exists. We are extremely flattered that you would put that on us, and maybe we helped identify a venue and negotiate for reasonable contract details and order pallets of balls for the ball pits and barter with A/V companies and manage volunteers and liaise with special guests and that sort of thing BUT the creative vision was yours. While it is true you can’t hire just anyone to see your vision into reality (they should and I would even go so far as to say must be people who believe in that vision), you can’t do anything without the vision. And that was all Hank.
I don’t mean to imply that we only did the minutia: I sincerely hope we helped broaden and define and refine and actualize that vision in its infant stages. The driving force for every member of our team, in every decision and order and conversation, was faith to that vision. Every first con has its share of mistakes, and we did as well; but when you have excitement about and commitment to the vision, that tends to rise out of the madness.
And if you want to know how it all went down, I now have a great excuse to tell this story! How We Started a VidCon With Just One Year of Experience:
About twoish months after LeakyCon 2009, two things of note happened on the same day:
I missed a Skype chat from John Green
I missed a phone call from Hank Green
It was fall of 2009: the brothers Green were busy folk then but nowhere near the empire-leading media giants they are now. Still, it was far enough along in their worldbuild that I knew these things had to be related, and neither was an accident, and they either had something really cool to tell me or ask me, so I fumbled to answer.
“So, you know LeakyCon?” Hank asked me as though it was something at which we had greeted each other in passing, as opposed to something at which we had danced together so hard we had collapsed on the floor in a heap.
“Yes,” I said, cautiously.
“Can you do that for us?”
He had a tiny laugh in his voice when he said it and then quickly explained his concept, which is what became VidCon. We hadn’t done much with these guys yet - we were barely past the Accio Deathly Hallows craze - but were easily excited to work with them further, easily able to see what worthy partners they would be. When Hank asked, though, I had two warring thoughts: a) he is a genius and this was an idea that is begging to be made into reality and b) I am still tired from LeakyCon 2009. So here’s what I said.
“No. But I know who can.”
I meant by that not myself but a triumverate: Steph Dornhelm, MJ Harper, and me as a group. (Since late 2010 MJ has since been focusing on personal matters and no longer participates, but we still care a lot about her as a friend and former associate.) And, of course, legion of stalwart Leaky graduates alongside us.
We were purposefully taking a break in 2010 from LeakyCon to shore up for 2011, and so when I called Steph and MJ and relayed the proposal to them (which would erase this gap year) it was met with that same sort of “oh, why not, what’s having a life, anyway?” sort of reaction that means “this is going to make our lives completely nuts but holy heck do we want to be part of building this thing so let’s just make it happen.”
We had a ton of help. We grabbed some of our favorite LeakyCon staffers and pulled them by the hair right into the thick of things. Not that any of them needed much convincing; they were all on board in an instant. In fact, one of them (Laura Chernikoff) is now the head of VidCon’s special guests, wrangling some ONE THOUSAND GUESTS LOL EVERY TIME I HEAR THAT I LAUGH SO HARD, IT’S LIKE MADNESS ONLY FUNNIER.
It was only the second event we’d ever run. But we learned for sure what we already suspected after Leaky 2009: when you have people at the helm (like Hank and John) who are actually devoted to their attendees and who put their needs first, who are adults with good intentions backed up by common sense, credibility, maturity, and belief in the value of what they are doing, you have the best chance of pulling that first event off. And people will get on board with that real fast.
People can sense capability and positivity. You will quickly find yourself surrounded by other capable and generous people, be that volunteers with spectacular talents and abilities (who will easily make themselves known to you) or special guests who can’t wait to get involved and help in whatever way they can.
That means for most first events, the inevitable flubs are completely understandable and forgiven in light of the greater goodwill of the event. Audio mixups get forgotten; happy special guests spend hours and hours signing autographs or playing pranks on each other that go viral on YouTube. It means sponsors throw themselves into bag stuffing (a repeated phenomenon, we’ve found) and when you forget to order an amp for a band, the front man does the opposite of freak out: he drives to a store and lays out $300 for one without complaint. (That was Dave Days, btw. I sometimes have trouble remembering the names of famous YouTubers, but those who were incredible to us that year will stick with me forever.)
So with that said, and realizing that this post doesn’t come out of a vaccuum, I made a little how-to, and it’s linked here. How We Started a Conference with No Experience.
I hope it is useful and informative, though what I really think will happen if you read it is you will be forever sworn off ever trying to start a conference.
May the cons be ever in your favor!
Oh God…remember the time Dave Days had to buy an amp for us? Thannnks Daaaave.
Also, never forget that VidCon 2010 began with the Gregory Brothers singing into dead microphones.
Thanks to Melissa for putting this little history together!
I love this!
