Classic Hollywood Bloopers

And the greatest Hollywood blooper of all time:

I love seeing things like this. We seem to have an idea that because movies were proper and swearing-free that the actors were too. I like seeing the Golden Age being human.


consider the following aus

  • "we wore matching halloween costumes to this party" au
  • "we’re the only ones who didn’t get the email about class being canceled" au
  • "tried to get the candy bar that didn’t drop out of the vending machine and now my hand is stuck can u help me out" au
  • "we’re the only ones on campus who didn’t go home for christmas" au
  • "we both got in separate bar fights downtown and now we’re waiting in the ER comparing stories" au
  • "accidentally fell in your lap while standing on this crowded bus" au
  • "can u help me sneak my cat into my dorm" au
  • "accidentally got assigned the same library study room so I guess we’ll have to share for the semester" au
  • "It’s raining and u forgot your umbrella so come over and stand under mine while we wait for the bus" au
  • "I rented the apartment above your flower shop and in the last two months you’ve gotten a new flower I’m allergic to so I keep buying bouquets until I can figure out which kind it is" au

After seeing your post and a few others I decided to do a somewhat historical disney princess warrior as well. I decided to set it in the late  German Renaissance, mainly for the sake of being able to draw full plate armor and a longsword. The sleeves and fancy armor are not strictly practical but I wanted to evoke a sense of regality seeing that she is a princess :)

She looks so strong and beautiful, I love it! I adore Snow White; and I’d love to see a movie where she would wear an armor like this. 


gotta say, kate was the most fun and hard to draw.

Girls Can’t Fight! Salma’s mouth twisted wryly. “What do they think their mothers do, when lords are at war and a raiding party strikes? Stay in their solars and tat lace?”
That made Kel Smile. “My aunt lit barrels of lard and had them catapulted onto Scanran ships this summer.”
“As would any delicately reared noblewoman.

This is my motivational poster

but seriously look at those faces. did literally ANYONE bet on Tony? Was Tony the only one to bet on Tony?

Oh, and Steve. It looks like Steve is the only one in that group who bet on Tony. 

I bet she didn’t even put money on it. All Jen wanted was for him to shave the trucker ‘stache.
