I’m just saying, if Kristen Stewart’s life and career are ruined by this bizarre cheating scandal while Chris Brown continues to make money, we have failed as a society and everyone should feel deeply ashamed of themselves.
The major transitional element of today’s London Olympics opening ceremony was a downtempo performance of adoptive sporting anthem “Abide With Me” by Scottish singer Emeli Sandé. The song and accompanying dance were a tribute to the victims of the 7/7 terror attacks in London that claimed 52 victims days after the 2012 Summer Olympic hosts were named. (It’s also been suggested the performance was a memorial to the war dead.)
Regardless, it was a rather significant and emotional moment in the opening ceremony, coming just before the parade of nations—and it wasn’t aired in the United States. Instead, viewers were treated to a lengthy and meaningless Ryan Seacrest interview of Michael Phelps. NBC regularly excises small portions of the opening ceremony to make room for commercials, but we’ve never heard of them censoring out an entire performance—especially to air an inane interview. We’ve asked NBC why they didn’t air the tribute, and if they get back to us we’ll let you know what they say. In the meantime, enjoy the performance everyone else in the world saw. [BBC]
If I see one more fic about how “Loki’s actions were not entirely his own” in The Avengers, I’m going to scream.
yeah he definitely wasn’t playing with a full deck and was also definitely manipulated
Loki was never a Disney prince and people really need to ditch the idea of Disney Prince Loki bc it’s almost 2 am and I’ll say it now
IT WAS ALWAYS A STUPID FUCKING IDEA thanks for that tumblr BUT NOT REALLY

Tbh, one of the reasons I could never get into the Avengers fandom was because of its Loki Fans. >_> I mean, I love Tom Hiddleston too, but I don’t have to love his character Loki the same way. Two different people…one person being utterly charming, nice, and perhaps perfect. Loki being the mean-spirited, mischievous trickster character he’s supposed to be. He’s never been the good guy…making excuses to make him look precious and innocent takes away from his character imho.
