You can’t have a Justice League without the Big Blue Boy Scout. Wonder Woman and Cyborg, the arms. They both are able to accomplish the tasks at hand given their own abilities, backgrounds, and trials they’ve faced. The Flash and Aquaman, the legs. Needless to say quite often these two characters have proven to be able to get the team moving throughout different story arcs and can be more than you bargain for if you’re not seeing it coming.

@davefranciosaart - To all my fellow NormBreyfogle JimAparo GeorgePerez GrahamNolan NealAdams JohnByrne AND JoseLuisGarciaLopez fans out there who grew up with the classic Grey-Blue Bat...not to mention the wonderful yellow oval. Those are just some of the artists who had the pleasure of drawing the Big Blue Bat back in the day - and these are some of my biggest inspirations.

justplainsomething: nakedsasquatch: lanawhatever: nakedsasquatch it’s ya man Okay but seriously folks - as often as I joke about this movie stirs my loins and as weirdly popular as this text post got a while back, I wanna rap with you all about why the George of the Jungle remake is a pretty important piece of cinema. It’s literally the only movie I can think of that is based completely around the unheard of “FEMALE gaze.” Granted, while I’m a huge movie buff I’ve not seen every movie ever made. But even so, even if there’s another example of the “female gaze” in cinema that has escaped me it’s still damn impressive that a kids movie from 1997 based on a Jay Ward cartoon from the 60’s managed to turn gender representation in media on it’s fucking ass! First things first, let’s look at our leading lady and love interest - Ursula, played by Leslie Mann. Let me just say that while Leslie Mann is adorable and a talented actress, she does look a little less conventional and a little more plain compared to the bombshells that Hollywood likes to churn out. Leslie, in comparison, looks much more like a real women you’d meet on the street. She dresses pretty conservatively and plain throughout the film ; Wearing outfits that are more functional than fashionable for trekking through the jungle, pulling her hair back and so forth. Not that if she was dolled up and more scantily clad it would give her character any less integrity, but can we appreciate how RARE that is in the male dominated industry of film? Just think about all the roads a film about a woman in the jungle COULD have taken but didn’t - no scenes with her clothes strategically ripped or anything! You can say this is a kids movie, intended for children and that’s why the sensuality of the female lead is so downplayed but there are PLENTY of kids movies that handle women in a very objectifying and sexualized manner despite the target audience is pre-pubescent. Like, a disgusting amount. So I don’t think “it’s a kids movie” is why the film doesn’t take ANY, let alone EVERY, opportunity to showcase the main female character’s sex appeal… …especially considering the sex appeal of the film rests squarely on the well defined shoulders of our male lead, George of the Jungle played by Brendan Fraser in the best god damn shape of his life! *Homer Simpson Drooling Noises* Whenever members of the reddit community try to compare the sexualization of women in fiction to the design of characters such as Batman and Superman, I always want to just sit them down and show them this movie. Because THIS is what the female sexual fantasy looks like, and Batman and Superman are male power-fantasies. Look at him - his big blue eyes, his soft hair, his lean, chiseled physique built for dexterity rather than power. He’s wild and free, but gentle. It’s like he fell right out of that steamy romance novel your mom tried to hide from you growing up. Hell, the whole plot seems to be designed around how damn hot he is! First, for the majority of the film, he wears only a small strip of cloth to cover the dick balls and ass. Everything else is FAIR GAME to drool over for 40 minutes. Then, after he meets Ursula she takes him with her to San Francisco just so we can enjoy him in a well-tailored suit (as seen in the gif set), running around in an open and billowy shirt along side horses while Ursula and all of her friends literally crowd around and make sexual comments about him, and my personal favorite, ditch the loincloth entirely and have him walk around naked while covering his man-bits with various objects while one of Ursula’s very lucky friends oogles him and makes a joke along the lines of “So THAT’S why they call him the ‘KING of the Jungle’…” And yes, it’s also a very cute and funny little movie. Out of all the movies based on Jay Ward cartoons, it was the most faithful to the fast-paced humor and wit of the original source material (yes even the new Peabody and Sherman movie which honestly I thought was too cutesy-poo.) But that’s not why this movie is popular with the gay community or why we all became women in 1997. It’s just really cool that there’s a film out there where the sensuality of the female form takes a back seat for the oiled up, chiseled, physique of Brendan Fraser (in his prime that is) One thing to add: in the scene mentioned above where the ladies are watching him in the billowy shirt running with the horses, it pans back to about 50 feet away to two guys in suits at this party looking at the women and one of the guys says, “Man, what is it with women and horses?” So not only does this movie highlight the female gaze, but it blatantly points out that western male sensibilities don’t have a clue what actually appeals to women. : justplainsomething: nakedsasquatch: lanawhatever: nakedsasquatch it’s ya man Okay but seriously folks - as often as I joke about this movie stirs my loins and as weirdly popular as this text post got a while back, I wanna rap with you all about why the George of the Jungle remake is a pretty important piece of cinema.

<p>Single Dad’s Heart Sank When Teen Daughter Got Pregnant. But How Things Turned Around Is Gold.</p>: SINGLE DAD'S HEART SANK WHEN TEEN DAUGHTER GOT PREGNANT. BUT HOW THINGS TURNED AROUND IS GOLD. My wife died whilst giving birth to our daughter, so naturally my daughter and I are very close. From a young age she would spend her spare time volunteering to help children who were ill or dying, and as she is a musician, she would also teach the children at the hospital I work at how to play the piano and guitar. Along with her kindness, she is the most beautiful young woman I have ever laid my eyes on. She has the sweetest smile and her mothers big blue eyes. When she brought home this scruffy looking guy who hadn't done well in school, who was unemployed and trying to make his band successful, I didn't like him at all. I'm very sorry if I offend anybody but I just couldn't understand the attraction she had to him and hoped it would fade into nothing. She could do better. About a year into their relationship, my daughter discovered that she was pregnant. My heart sunk not because I didn't want a grand-child, but because I knew she hadn't planned it and I knew she was too kind to ever consider an alternative to keeping it. Her boyfriend approached me one evening shortly after the pregnancy was announced, with a bottle of whiskey and asked if we could talk. I accepted the offer and we sat down and had a drink together. He confessed that he was scared to have a child but how he had already started saving money and how he'd started looking for a job. He explained how he knew that he wasn't good enough for my daughter but that he loved her with all of his heart and wanted to support her in her choice even if that meant throwing away his music dreams. I will admit, we both got very drunk and ended up getting along well. This boy I had first judged was actually a very nice, warm gentleman who simply wanted the best for my daughter and their future child. That was good enough for me, so I invited him to live with us and got him a job working at the same hospital I work for. My daughter and son-in-law are doing really well for themselves now. My son-in-law still works with me at the hospital (he is a nursing assistant, trained on the job) and my daughter has just qualified as a social worker. They don't own their own house but are no longer living with me or rely on me for any funds etc. I have a four year old grand-daughter and a two year old grand-son. My daughter was 19 having their first child and my son-in-law was 22. It has taken a long time for them to get on track but I am so proud of them both. And after seeing how much happiness my grand-children have brought to our small family back then, the thought of an alternative would never have crossed my mind <p>Single Dad’s Heart Sank When Teen Daughter Got Pregnant.
