IT’S THE HOLIDAY SEASON so of course here’s a follow forever to make you feel warm and snuggly as you sport those awful Christmas sweaters and sip hot cocoa with peppermint sticks melting away in your mug. I wish you losers a Merry Christmas and happy winter season and I love you all.

Rupert Graves as Septimus Warren Smith in Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway (Marleen Gorris, 1997)
we’re taking a group of people who have insider knowledge of the English language (or at least a good grasp of it) and placing them in a new, unfamiliar, virtual space. This space introduces visual aids to language in the form of photos and gifs, the ability to comment on someone else’s text in a reblog and the ability to communicate a lot of information in very few words using hashtags. We also see the creation of tone in a toneless medium. In order to simulate conversational patterns in writing we SHOUT WHEN WE’RE SUPER EXCITED or *psssst whisper when we’re pretending to tell someone a secret while perfectly aware that anyone on the internet can read what we’re saying.* slash the coolest bit tho is that u can like ironically forgo all capitalization and punctuation just write in a weird speech pattern its ok everyone will still understand maybe it even helps read the text more quickly because nothing is interrupting the flow of words
In short, this dialect results when people who already share a language are given new tools. The result isn’t a butchering of English language but a creative experiment with it. Am I claiming that the Internet as a whole is operating on a level of postmodernism that would make Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon seem like novices? maybe i am maybe im not u punk wut of it like who r u to tell me otherwise

some of my fav shots from the Berlin premiere.new tab for high res.
I was sitting on sea ice when I heard a little peep over my shoulder.
man i know pacific rim is not a Holy Grail of Perfect Progressive Cinema but man is it NICE to be able to watch a big cheesy loud action movie w main characters of color and where theres no hamfistedly shoved in romance and LOADSA COOL ALIEN AND SCIENCE STUFF ……. and where i dont have to be perpetually worried about them making some kinda gross joke (looking at u transformers) and the fights are still BIG and satisfying and everyones still super hot
