Matilda

I was rewatching this movie the other day and got up to the point where she and Miss Honey meet for the first time in the classroom, and she mentions that her favorite author is Charles Dickens.
And, like, I always thought they namedropped him in order to make her sound intellectual, but it occurred to me really suddenly and violently that the reason she loves Dickens is because he writes about children who live in abusive systems and who’ve been orphaned or abandoned and she finds comfort and solidarity in it. Miss Honey’s reacts the way she does because Dickens is special to her, likely for the same exact reason. WOW DUH.
ONLY GETTING THIS LIKE 15 YEARS LATER. ALL ABOARD THE SLOW MOBILE.

If it’s any consolation, I’m pretty sure 70% of the people reblogging this also didn’t realise this until you said it. Myself included.

Oh my god. Another tumblr revolution

Hannibal Buress - (x)

why do some irish people expect everyone to know that we’re not part of the uk

like i genuinely couldn’t tell you shit about 90% of the countries in the world and their history and most irish people couldn’t either, so why should we expect everyone else to know about us? all you gotta do is politely inform them that no ireland is not part of the uk and move on,

I had to show a prospective international student (from Turkey) around my uni campus the other day and when I asked him if he had any questions about England he asked what was going on with Ireland and the UK

I underrated The Beast Below massively. It is one of the best new series episodes. It is like Robert Holmes and David Whitaker writing for the Cartmel era, with a late rewrite by Douglas Adams. 

I do not understand how there are people who do not just love everything about this episode of television. 

I used to remember it as an okay-but-nothing-special episode, but that was until I rewatched it for the first time only this year. And it was brilliant, absolutely brilliant. The amount of character development for Amy, the amount of setting up of Eleven’s character, the amount of setting the tone for Moffat’s entire run?

Brilliant.
