HeadmistressMercedes's Profile Picture
The Headmistress
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
You have entered the realm of The Headmistress. Be warned...if you are of sound mind and body...then I do not want you within my land's borders. Only the truly and wonderfully insane can grace my gardens.

Within my palace walls, you shall find me, engaging myself in numerous artistic endeavours. I sit at my desk and carve out words upon pixelated stone, I use my shutterbox to capture images of the world around me, I take up my pens and ink and attempt to sketch what my brilliantly botched mind comes up with, and I take images from the outside world and attempt to manipulate them into works of art, using only the best software that I have yet to figure out.

If you cannot accept that which I love, here in my beloved land of Fan-Dôm, then you are not welcome. I have many sectors of this land that I live in and take part in. As of current, I am in the rebellion, fighting alongside those who flock until the sign of the Mockingjay. But I have also been taken by the likes of Sherlock, Harry Potter, Wallander, The Hobbit/LOTR, and many more.

I humbly thank my Vice-Queen, :icongoosie-boosie: for her unending loyalty (and for my wonderful ID, which she made just for me!! ♥♥). She is my skulker in the Tumblr shadows to hunt out new and exciting news and gifs for me. In return, I grant her Maganderings in the form of words so that she may read them and enjoy the little ship we built and sailed together.

I am a fair and generous ruler. I enjoy speaking with my minions, my loyal subjects, as it gives me great pleasure. Do not be daunted by my title. Should you wish to speak to me, your request for an audience will not be refused. If, however, you should cross might very well be the last thing you ever do.

Journal History

Yup, I'm about to go all hipster on your asses. PREPARE YERSELFZ!!

MOVIE: Defendor (2009)

STARRING: Woody Harrelson, Elias Koteas, Sandra Oh and Kat Dennings.

SYNOPSIS: Give Arthur Poppington (Harrelson) a black turtleneck, some duct tape, some angry wasps, and some marbles, and watch him turn into DEFENDOR, a vigilante who is off to fight his nemisis, Captain Industry!! Poppington is a lone soul, afflicted (and I use the term loosely) with a developmental challenge. He is not stupid by any means, but has a very child-like view of the world. To get to Captain Industry, he must fight one of his henchmen, a corrupt police officer (Koteas), and befriend a hooker (Dennings) who has been to Industry's house. Most of the story is told when Poppington is being questioned by a court-appointed psychiatrist (Oh), who sees a man who simply wants to help people. Will Defendor get his man before the shipment of guns and girls arrives? Or will The Man bring him down before then?

Honestly, people...this movie doesn't just toy with your fucking shreds them. Harrelson is f---ing brilliant, able to capably play a man who sees the world differently from others without making him stupid or dull or obvious or, for lack of a better term, retarded in a stereotypical sense. You can see the wonder or anger in his eyes, and he certainly knows how to get to you. The rest of the cast is just as competent, with Denning's Kat (yup, her character name) a wonderful arc of a character who didn't care about Defendor at first to truly loving him, and Oh being a sympathetic ear to listen to Poppington's story without judging him. Koteas is also great as the corrupt cop who is completely baffled and annoyed by Defendor, but still not quite sure if he deserves death.

Excellent film, seriously. I'd advise you to watch the trailer on Youtube, but be warned: the aforementioned trailer paints this movie as a comedy, and while there are funny times to be sure, it isn't a comedy, or it might be a black comedy at best. The ending...oh God, this ending...unbearably sad (I torture myself by loving these kinds) yet happy at the same time. Few endings have made me cry so. You have been warned.

Rating: 3.5/4 stars.
  • Mood: Emotional
  • Listening to: Great Songs of Christmas (record)
