Look, I made a gif of this most awesome wizard at the Leaky Cauldron!
DUDE IS READING ‘A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME’ BY STEPHEN HAWKING
I NEVER REALIZED
are you serious
I always assumed wizards just ignored science, because the fact that “magic” exists, can explain anything. But there are MuggleBorn wizards, ones who, until they were eleven, lived in the real world and learned science and things. Did they all just abandon that normal, muggle knowledge, like Harry did? It’s always been there, itching in the back of my mind.
FOUR FOR YOU SCIENCE WIZARD
YOU GO SCIENCE WIZARD
can we point out that he’s doing wandless magic too
like voldemort couldn’t even do that shit
molly fuckin weasley couldn’t fuckin do that

pretty sure this whole series has been about the wrong wizard guys
Plot Twist: He is able to do wandless magic because his comprehensive understanding of quantum physics means that he is the only wizard/witch to actually understand how magic works.
HE NEEDS A NAME
Is this wizard the Glen Coco of the Harry Potter world?
IF SOMEONE ASKS ME WHO IS MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER IN HARRY POTTER I AM GONNA SAY THE SCIENCE WIZARD
I have no idea why people disliked this movie.
I will defend this movie to the end of my days as the best Batman parody ever filmed. It is perfect. And not just because of the intense gayness.
I watched the first three episodes of Littlest Pet Shop, and I’m reminded of a bit from a great review of Freddy Got Fingered:
“It’s too normal to be Dada! It’s too shit to be anything else!”
Needless to say, I understand now why Griffin and Jenny of Sherclop love it, and I might end up watching some more.
Let’s all just take a moment to appreciate the fact that the character DC brought in to make Batman seem straighter is now a lesbian.
this is the face of a man who enjoys kissing women
I have got to read some Batwoman. Recommendations?
I love Tumblr…big big love. And I like that you can like or reblog something without commenting on it, because, like, not everything needs commentary…not everything needs to be analyzed to be amplified.
But when I post original content (specifically blog posts or videos) I really like to know what people think about those things…and more than just the sliding scale of “how many notes did this get.” I want deeper information than that, and so I’m always diving into the notes to see what people say when they reblog stuff, but mostly, people don’t say anything.
YouTube comments are great, but one of the things Tumblr is really great at is facilitating a broader public discussion. And I’m not saying people should go out of their way to comment on a reblog, nor am I saying that there aren’t often lots of good discussions, but I just dove down about 200 notes deep on this thing that I posted and didn’t see a single additional word associated with any reblogs.
Is Tumblr becoming (or has it always been) a place where you define yourself simply by the things that you like, and not by the things you say and think? I know some people aren’t comfortable sharing themselves like that, but it’s almost always worthwhile to say something if you have something to say.
I guess what I’m saying is that the internet is a two-way street…we are all creators…I don’t ever want to lose that.
I think it’s “… always been a place where you define yourself simply by the things that you like”. That’s always struck me as the primary use of Tumblr - reblogging animated gifs from movies and pictures of strangely attractive people. Sometimes combined with complaining about social or political issues. There’s nothing wrong with that, inherently, but I’ve never seen the same sort of discussion and community culture I used to see on, say, LiveJournal or a lot of better forums.
Some people do other, more constructive things with Tumblr, but there seems to be a content-producer/content-consumer divide that may actually be growing. The people who actually use it as a blogging service, writing insightful or funny or heated or personal things (like yourself, or the Frogman), or those spend time to create the gifs and photosets and music… and then those who just reblog.
This isn’t true of everyone, and lots of people are using it in new and different ways, or using it like older models of internet communication, but the way Tumblr works doesn’t inherently offer that.
Not to say there’s anything inherently wrong with just reblogging - I’m not a very talkative person online, so I understand just reblogging things with #this or #gpoy hashtags - but I don’t think it’s ever effectively fostered communication and discourse. I think comment features (like YouTube, LiveJournal, Wordpress comments, etc) are much more functional for that. It often feels like a combination of too much work and possibly even an intrusion upon one’s followers to have a full conversation in Tumblr reblog format.
It’s just not structured in a way to offer short, fast-paced messages among a large group like comments do, so you end up seeing mostly (not exclusively) people reblogging and maybe adding a few notes or tags, if anything.
(Now I’m curious about the use of tags as commentary or even footnotes, yeah, maybe they’re like footnotes, but I don’t have enough thoughts on it yet.)

tim burton’s entire film career has been a slow, faltering, roundabout way of asking for a threesome
Reblogging for the caption.

Go home, Barbie. You are drunk.
Where can I buy this exact doll
I didn’t expect, when I started my position in the “electronics department”, to first be also covering the entirety of toys, and second to spend 3/4 of my time recommending the best thing to give a 4-to-12-year-old for Easter or their birthday.
You’re welcome, children of my city, for the good videogames, Lego, Nerf, and making sure the folks buying “figure not included” TMNT toys also bought a figure. And some ooze.
making fun of your kid for enjoying the things they enjoy is the quickest way to make them feel so completely isolated from you that they are more comfortable talking to strangers on the internet than you about their problems
And my mom wonders why I don’t share more of my life with her.
