The opening scenes of each episode of True Detective, season 1.
Verity Lambert: I tell you, the real revelation for me was Billie Piper.
Russell T Davies: For all of us, for all of us. Bless her!
Verity Lambert: I thought she was just brilliant. The thing about her is that she never seems to stop, she always plays it for real, which is just wonderful.
Russell T Davies: She does that 100% of the day, every day. Never had a bad day with her. Everybody has a tired day or a sleepy day, even the best actors in the world – but never with her. Quite extraordinary, the commitment.
I tottaly missed this symbolism in the show and it is amazing
Anyone who makes fun of fanfiction has never read really good fanfiction.
we’re taking a group of people who have insider knowledge of the English language (or at least a good grasp of it) and placing them in a new, unfamiliar, virtual space. This space introduces visual aids to language in the form of photos and gifs, the ability to comment on someone else’s text in a reblog and the ability to communicate a lot of information in very few words using hashtags. We also see the creation of tone in a toneless medium. In order to simulate conversational patterns in writing we SHOUT WHEN WE’RE SUPER EXCITED or *psssst whisper when we’re pretending to tell someone a secret while perfectly aware that anyone on the internet can read what we’re saying.* slash the coolest bit tho is that u can like ironically forgo all capitalization and punctuation just write in a weird speech pattern its ok everyone will still understand maybe it even helps read the text more quickly because nothing is interrupting the flow of words
In short, this dialect results when people who already share a language are given new tools. The result isn’t a butchering of English language but a creative experiment with it. Am I claiming that the Internet as a whole is operating on a level of postmodernism that would make Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon seem like novices? maybe i am maybe im not u punk wut of it like who r u to tell me otherwise

I can never go back, I can’t. I just can’t, I can’t.
You know what I’d like to see? Whoever takes over Doctor Who next, when Moffat decides to release it from his greasy paws, should completely go back and DESTROY everything Moffat wrote. Like go back and change the Time War, write his companions into changing the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctor’s important moments, helping to save them even though they never truly met them. Then I want someone to record Moffat’s reaction as he watches these episodes and see how angry he gets over his entire run being made for naught. Then he’ll know how the rest of us fucking feel about what he’s done to undermine Classic Who and RTD era Who.
