Being white means never having to think about it.

Yeah.  He’s anything but delusional or demented in the books.  His tragedy is so profound because he’s so proud and noble and wise, but in the end he gives into despair, broken by the weight of Mordor and his premonitions of Sauron’s mind.  There are hints of him preferring Boromir to Faramir in the books, but nothing at the emotionally abusive levels he is in the films.

gingerblivet said: Yeah, as much as I adore John Noble, it is a major departure from the books.

John Noble is great, but when I think Denethor I think Charles Dance.  He just has the right stern, kingly features.  John Noble looks too soft…too, idk, mortal.  Denethor, like Aragorn, has that touch of immortality to him from Numenor.  Dance has just the right amount of intensity and hard edge to convey that.

mr-cappadocia asked:

So why does Cracked CONSTANTLY push Feminist propaganda so hard? And let's not bullshit ourselves. You do. Just yesterday you published five articles. Two specifically referenced either Feminism or Feminist backed statistics. Conversely whenever you cover anything related to the opposition you not only mislead about their views... you straight up fucking lie about them and people let you get away with it because you're a "humor magazine". So I'm wondering why you propagandize *so hard*. Why?

Because we’re true believers! 

Let me take this moment to say how Cracked could have gone another direction 7 or 8 years ago, a more Maximy, Booby Gallery of the Day direction if not for the steadfast resistance of David Wong and Jack O’Brien. I barely acknowledge the side that opposes feminism, but Wong goes out of his way to understand people who are mad at feminists, and he writes about those views with more sensitivity and understanding that I could ever muster. 

To sum up: We don’t have an explicit agenda but if one comes across, It’s not one I’m ashamed of. 

Kristi is a liar. I remember the meeting where the Cracked brain trust sat down and was like “From now on let’s occasionally post articles that either directly or conspiratorially tangentially support equal rights for women so we can accomplish our ultimate end goal: Hack into the penis of every man and make it a smaller penis, or a penis that is otherwise laughable for a different reason upon which we all agree. It almost sounds TOO easy,” Jack said, as he (via the mainframe) hacked a young Robert Brockway’s penis. “I think my wife deserves my respect,” the now-neutered Brockway yelped.
