Photosynthesise and drink up the sunrise

Ask me anything   About Me   

Claudia, London, Tiny Human and Music-Maker

It’s “Intensive Projects Week”, which means 6 hours of orchestra per day, and of course this is the exact week when I get the really bad cold that has been doing the rounds at RAM, hooray! I have made that honey/lemon/ginger jelly for sore throats that has been popping up on tumblr and it is actually pretty good (this coming from someone who doesn’t like honey or ginger)
It seems that a couple of people on here are going through some really tough shit right now. I know that a few words of comfort/support aren’t really going to do any good but I hope you all are aware that you are lovely and brilliant people who are deserving of good things, because you deserve to feel that way about yourselves. I wish you nothing but the best outcomes in these situations.
Now I am going to take lots of Sudafed and hopefully get a good night’s sleep for the first time in three days.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate Within Temptation’s cover of Radioactive?

Okay, but this movie wins the award for Best Use of Manpain, tho.

In any other movie, Raleigh would’ve spent 90 minutes being like MY PAIN IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR STUPID WAR, and instead, he snaps back into action as soon as he meets Mako. That’s awesome. But what floors me is that he uses his own grief to help Mako survive hers. He knows how awful it is to lose your family. He knows what she’s going through. And instead of whining or thinking his pain makes him entitled to opt out of his responsibilities, he empathizes with Mako, supports her, and encourages her.

Raleigh’s greatest strength is his compassion. And that’s the kind of male hero I’d like to see on my screen, please.

Plus, like, a bazillion more movies about Mako Mori.

I have a friend who thinks Pacific Rim is the best expression of true, non-toxic, GOOD masculinity in recent times.

All agreement.

Let’s talk about Stacker Pentecost in light of this, though. Because we learn, towards the end of the movie, that the day he met Mako is the day he lost his partner. He gets out of that jaeger after having piloted it alone, after having his body burned for hours by toxic radiation, after losing the person he was mentally linked to (family? partner? friend?) and what does he do? He adopts a young girl, and more than that, he promises her her right to revenge if that’s what she wants. Tries his best to keep her safe but gives her the tools and skills and support and eventually permission to fight. Respects her enough to rely on her. Gives her a home and family and meaningful, important vocation during the goddamn apocalypse. Let’s talk about the kind of masculinity that uplifts others that completely. That takes all kinds of pain and stands up in the face of it because of the people who need to see him still standing. That has purpose and drive and passion but above all understands other people and believes in them.

Stacker fucking Pentecost everybody.
