ive been meaning to make work-related comics forever, so enjoy some choice movie title bastardizations.
(these all actually, seriously, happened, with no humor or awareness on the part of the customer at the time as far as I could tell. so, yes, someone actually asked for a ticket to “Detergent” with a straight face.)
oh my god when i worked at the theater back home a guy came up to buy two tickets to madea, and his accent was really thick so i thought he said beiber, and i assumed he was taking like his tween-early teen daughter to see the beiber movie (yes this was so long ago that it was while a madea movie and the beiber movie were both in theaters at the same time) and then later his wife came storming up and basically cussed me out for misunderstanding his accent and wouldn’t stop fucking screaming at me after i printed out their new tickets no matter how much i apologized. i think she wanted to get me fired for not being able to understand a really, REALLY thick accent. like it wasn’t even an accent i recognized.
okay seriously reblog if you’re older than 12
so as i’m at the age where, if i lived in the harry potter universe, i’d be in the midst of a budding career, i have to wonder what i’d do.
i like to think i’d be a professor. possibly of care of magical creatures? that’d be one of the absolute most interesting things to me, learning and teaching about supernatural beasties.
Good wifi on the Hogwarts Express this year
granted, they already tend to treat women’s olympic sports as sexual displays. most men i know who watch the olympics…
Yeah, but pole dancing is an activity that has acquired an almost exclusively sexual association among both men and women. Acknowledging it as anything more and taking it out of that pigeonhole of male pleasure would probably make men so uncomfortable that it will never happen. They’re fine with thinking of dancers as strippers, but the second you acknowledge them as athletes, that suggests that they might actually be people, not sexual objects.
(I’m not saying that strippers aren’t people, I’m saying that men are more comfortable when they don’t have to consider that.)
Then you have some women who have internalized (or externalized) misogyny and like to use pole dancing as an example of something “dirty” that “only whores do,” as a means to set themselves apart on a moral and physical level.
IDK society is fucked up.
agreed, society IS fucked up.
it’s late, i’m drunk, and i hadn’t even bothered to remember that women push pole dancing over there in the “sexual” corner, too. it upsets me, because pole dancing is an uber athletic activity. like, ballet? yeah that works your legs like crazy, but pole dancing works your arms like crazy, too, more than ballet tosses require. and it’s all lean muscle since it has to still be flexible.
i know there are more and more little gyms offering classes on it because it’s such a good workout, but i wish it would get regarded more as a workout and less as a form of sexual entertainment.
How do you even…. ?
This is the type of stage pageantry that people pay hundreds to see. Imagine how long the costume designer took intricately put into making those dresses the people behind the scene are the true heroes of theater
The one on the right is a true work of art
AH YES THEATRE
my mom has worked as a wardrobe lady for music theater wichita for most of my life. she has tons of stories about patching costumes, helping with costume changes, and sewing up the phantom’s crotch while he was wearing the pants because there was a scene change but they didn’t have time to change his pants.
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
Good lord, the fluidity of her movement is mind-bending, jfc
It’s not an olympic sport and never will be, because that would involve acknowledging it as the incredible feat of skill and strength that it is, instead of a detached sexual display meant solely to please men.
granted, they already tend to treat women’s olympic sports as sexual displays. most men i know who watch the olympics only watch the olympics to stare at figure skaters and gymnasts and volleyball players.
didn’t post this one oops
