versions of Les Miserables I’d literally kill to see:

Idea one:

a modern verison a Black Jean Val Jean that’s recently released from Angola prison doing 20 years for joining a gang. He joined the gang to help care for his brothers and sister. He moves back…

Crows are scaryThey
use tools
Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
Have huge brains for birds
like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
they are scary smart at solving puzzles
some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
they can remember faces
SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT.  They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows.  Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag.  But the nice guys with masks they left alone.  THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight.  THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.
Guys I’m really scared of crows now.(q) 

Yeah but have you seen this 


YEAH! THEY ALSO PLAY FOR NO EVIDENT REASON OTHER THAN FUN AND THEY LOVE THE SNOW!Crows are seriously the coolest birbs ever.

every achievement in cinema history has led up to this moment

#that time that michael jordan retired from basketball to play baseball #and then was bad at baseball so went back to basketball #and in order to celebrate his return to basketball #we made a movie in which he teams up with 50 year old cartoon characters #to defeat the space aliens who magically stole the mojo of other famous basketball players #and planned to kidnap these 50 year old cartoon characters #so the cartoon characters who literally never played basketball in any of their cartoons #were like clearly the only way to settle this is with a game of basketball #and just when all hope seems lost #bill murray who has literally only been in one other scene in the movie #shows up completely without explanation #and no one questions it #and doesn’t even do anything to help the team like he literally just shows up to pass the ball to michael #and then michael jordan slam dunks the ball from half court to win the game #and someone in hollywood read that script #and was like yes perfect no changes need to be made let’s get this project going #i don’t believe in god #but i do believe in space jam

mustn’t forget that the aliens wanted to kidnap them so they can force them to perform in alien Danny DeVito’s struggling theme park

or that for some godawful reason Michael decided Newman would make an amazing publicist/personal assistant

Why am I stuck inside?

One more for #nochildleftinside day, this is a classic scene from the Cades Cove area of Great Smoky Mountains National Park as the trees begin their shift to autumn colors.

Cades Cove is an area of the park where the rocks that create the peaks of the Smoky Mountains have eroded away, leaving a large flat plain. Houses like these were occupied for a hundred years by remote settlers before the park was established. Today, Cades Cove features a loop that can be driven, with stops along the way, but getting out of the car is far more enjoyable. There are long hikes like the trip to Abrams Falls, and even days where the auto loop is closed to car traffic and bikes occupy the gentle hills on the road.

I’m jealous. I have to go teach a class, and I want to be outdoors.
