This print is now available at my Society6 shop for those who want one of their own!
Can we talk about how Hairspray is a story where a not-conventionally-attractive girl gets the hot guy in the end without having to Become “Pretty.” Because we need more stories like that.
It’s also story about breaking down the barriers of racism which we also need more of.
And it’s about nice hair and cheesy dance moves, more things we need more of
It’s a movie where John Travolta plays a chic, which we need more of
No. We don’t need more of men in roles which should have gone to plus size women.
Actually, the role was written as a man playing a woman because it’s a pantomime technique so it’s not like the movie purposely discriminated, It was literally just written that way and it’s probably one of my favourite comedic techniques.
Actually, the role was written as a man playing a woman because in the original Hairspray movie the role was played by Divine, a radical and influential plus-size drag queen. It is in honor of that original casting and in Divine’s memory that more recent stage and movie adaptations of Hairspray have continued to cast Mrs. Turnblad as a man in drag.

guess who’s being a tumblr cliche and is gonna be a faun for halloween
(hint: it me)
a musical where all of the songs are in the first act
the second act consists of reprises of the same songs, in reverse order, where every reprise is a dark ironic echo of the original version and it just gets more and more horrifying until the finale: a twisted, demented version of the opening number
into the woods
i apparently misspell the word ‘anyway’ often enough that my phone has started autocorrecting to the misspelling
adventures in the pacrim kink meme, vol1
so it transpires that someone in my comic book society is an active member of les mis fandom in fic terms if not on tumblr
Attention, all aces and aros
We can no longer have any sort of sexually or emotionally intimate relationship with other human beings. It confuses the allos too much and their fragile little minds can’t cope
For their benefit, we shall need to cut off all current relationships and move to a commune where we will all sleep in cold concrete rooms and wear grey sack shaped tunics and discuss bland, non-arousing topics and display no outward signs of enjoyment or excitement
Please send your room requirements and how many tunics you will need and I will make the arrangements- but please! Use bland, unenthusiastic language at all times, so that the allos do not confuse our excitement with arousal
ok so i think i finally found a category where tumblr is better than pinterest and that’s food
on pinterest if you search recipes they’re like “try a skinny mom pop! put 3 strawberries on a stick and add a little drizzle of white chocolate! way tasty and way healthier than most dessert options out there!”
tumblr food tag is like “put 15 snickers bars in a bigger fucking snickers bar you beautiful disaster”
BISEXUAL CAP FOR AMERICA
( theappleppielifestyle convinced me to do this)
Yes! Yes, yes, yes, yes, YES!
The horrifying moment when you look around for an adult and realize you are one.
