Are people allowed to make gifs of AFS once it premieres? Or would you guys prefer that we not and you guys do that sort of stuff?

HAPPY OCTOBER 19TH YALL
Force kids in school to read crappy, overrated books that are “the best books ever written” solely because they’re “classics” and then call those kids idiots because those aren’t the kind of books they like to read and sit back and wonder why we have a nation full of multiple generations worth of people who willfully and proudly refuse to read.
I enjoyed the following books I had to read in school, including college: A Picture of Dorian Grey, Dracula, Brave New World. Three books in 18 years of schooling (kindergarten through college—and no, I didn’t miscount, I completed my undergrad in five years, not four). That’s kind of outrageous if you think about it. I’m grateful my parents just encouraged me to read whatever I wanted, because so often I find that people who don’t like to read will tell me that they think it’s ‘boring,’ and that just breaks my heart. If anything proves that reading is anything but boring, one only needs to look at the vast number of television shows and films based on books.
Interviewer: Tell us about your relationship with Robert Downey Jr on set.
Jude Law: Oh, I love him. I love him.
Interviewer: Yeah? You had a bit of a bromance going on there.
Jude Law: What is this new term everyone is using?
Jude Law: Oh, it’s a horrible term. What about just a romance?
Interviewer: No, it’s not the same.
Jude Law: Why not? Why?
Interviewer: Cause then you’d have to star in a romantic comedy together or something.
Jude Law: We just have. Have you not seen it? [x]
I ended up liking Only Lovers Left Alive more than I thought. I mean, I don’t feel an intense need to watch it again or own it, but I didn’t dislike it. I did enjoy the dynamic between Adam and Eve—I thought their relationship was rather sweet. The scenes where Adam was awakened made me giggle because that is totally, utterly me in the mornings.
Also, how has no one gifed that scene where Adam fixes the generator? I liked that quite a bit.
Thoughts so far on this movie:
- holy crap I’m getting seasick stop spinning the camera
- as fascinating (really, that’s not sarcasm) as I find Adam’s deep interest in doing all sorts of things with sound to create new things (and all his vintage recording equipment, even if I did reflexively make a face at the tape machine), the soundtrack kind of annoys me
- *sees Eve’s pile of money/passports/other sorts of things* oo accurate Michigan license is accurate
