Finished AUTHORITY this morning at my desk because I couldn’t stand the thought of working eight hours before reading the last 10 pages. Now, the hunt begins for an ARC of the final installment in the Southern Reach trilogy…
fun fact: Michael Cera asked Rihanna if he could slap her ass for real and she said “you can slap my ass for real if I can slap you in the face for real” and he was like alright. and they did the take like 3 times and Michael was like “you’re not hitting me hard enough do it for real” and then she slapped the fuck out of him and threw off his equilibrium so much he had to go lay down in his trailer for like half an hour lmao and that’s the take they used in the movie with no added sound effects
This is how we give Praise to a Witch who is really Nailing an Outfitte.
I have a mighty need to expand the knowledge that this gif is from the ballet Giselle, and these are spirits of women who died from broken hearts called wilis - in the ballet, men who get lost in the forest at night are trapped by the wilis and danced to death for doing wrong to women. It’s all quite badass. (with Myrtha, Queen of the Willis in the middle - she’s one cold hearted bitch and I love her.)
"Remove everything that has no relevance to the story. If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it’s not going to be fired, it shouldn’t be hanging there."
The Bullet — Season Three, Episode 7 (“One Minute”) — Early in the episode, an arms dealer gives the Cousins a hollow-point bullet “on the house.” That bullet later falls out of one of the Cousin’s pocket and is used by Hank to kill both Cousins before they kill him.
The Box Cutter — Season Four, Episode One (“The Box Cutter”): Seen in the first act, used later by Gus to slice open Victor’s throat.
Lily of the Valley — Season Four, Episode 13 (“Face Off”): This one is my favorite because you probably wouldn’t catch it until the second time through. In the previous episode (“End Times”), Walt’s spinning gun pointed to a seemingly irrelevant potted plant. In the end of the finale, of course, it was revealed to be The Lily of the Valley, which was the plant that poisoned Brock.
The Throw Rug — Season Four, Episode 11 (“Crawl Space”): Seen early on when Ted answers the door and nearly trips. Later, he trips over it and is nearly killed.
The Ricin Cigarette — Season Four, Episode 9 (“Bug”): This was kind of a Chekhov’s Gun fake-out. Walt gives Jesse a cigarette poisoned with Ricin to use to kill Gus. In the penultimate episode of season four, Jesse believes that Ricin was responsible for Brock’s illness (It was not). The cigarette was removed by Saul’s body guard, Huell, and it is still in play. The cigarette was reintroduced by Saul in the fifth season premiere.
