Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.

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.
Not the heroes we thought we needed but the heroes we really needed all along

it’s not gift wrap
then what is it?
Okay but this is why I adore DCAU!Batman, look at how much more lively and HUMAN he is here. He’s funny without being out of character, he’s sarcastic, he’s a cranky pants, he’s honest in a really humorous way, he’s indigent, he gets embarrassed about being saved by the girl he likes, he teases his friends, he SNORES.
Do you understand how much I love the fact that Batman SNORES? It’s adorable, and I know a lot of people will say Batman shouldn’t be adorable, but that small moment reminds us all that Batman - Bruce Wayne - is HUMAN. He’s not JUST this dark angst machine that sits in the Batcave and doesn’t have friends or do things like fall asleep because he’s been working for the last two weeks without it non-stop.
What I love about DCAU!Batman is that he was well-rounded. I find Nolan’s Batman so boring it’s painful. Who is he? Why does he do the things he does? Where is his change? Well he is Bruce Wayne rich man who can’t really run a company, he dresses up like a bat because they scare him and he does this to get revenge on the people that took away his parents, and he was trained by a super secret assassin organization for reasons, and he never really changes or learns or grows. He keeps himself near completely shut out from everyone, he doesn’t seem to have any friends except for Alfred but even their relationship seems one-sided or cold at times since Bruce is so obsessed with THE MISSION that he doesn’t even seem that dedicated to because after his not girlfriend dies he jumps out for 8 years and then he backs out again to go live in Europe with Selina for some reason because why the hell not? So really, what was the point of anything he did?
No see DCAU!Batman had all of that tragic past and angst but without making it seem like complete mangst. He had various relationships with various people and he loved them, he fought with them, he teased them, he respected them, and he relied on them. DCAU!Batman had FRIENDS. Why writers want to make Batman this ultimate loner of perpetual angst I’ll never know because that’s so fucking boring.
Another thing I love is that when Bruce fucked up his relationships, the narrative always showed that it was because of his own faults. Few people could deal with him long term because he was so deep into his mission that it was unhealthy. THANK YOU FOR SHOWING THAT THE INABILITY TO MOVE ON IS UNHEALTHY. That Bruce’s way of dealing with tragedy was unhealthy and his refusal to get help was unhealthy and that his distrust of people was unhealthy and thank you for showing the consequences of that.
Because that’s what makes Bruce Wayne and Batman interesting to me. The fact that this man is a tragedy but not because of his parents deaths, but because of how he reacted to it. Because Bruce is a man that attracts people to him, Dick, Babs, Tim, Jason, Diana, Clark, Taila, Selina, Steph, Cass, Alfred, his entire family love him and want to love him but they can’t because Bruce won’t let them. He’s so laser focused on his mission he can’t even see the people - the family - he has now. And some of them can’t deal with that, and they shouldn’t have to. So some of them leave, they always come back, but this time with no expectations because they know Bruce can’t and won’t change. And others can hack it out because they never had any expectations to begin with, and others are such people of hope or a mix of hope and reality that they’re able to stand by Bruce through their sheer force of unconquerable will.
But for me, that’s Bruce Wayne’s tragedy, the tragedy of Batman. And I thought DCAU!Batman was the best adaption that showed that. Nolan’s Batman was praised for being a loner, it’s seen as cool to shut people out and as such Bruce is without any sort of real flaws since the narrative doesn’t paint his behavior as a problem.
Also DCAU made Batman FUN instead of a douchey angst bucket
