Nicki Minaj & Peter Rosenberg Talk Past Beef Face-to-Face
reblogging for shelby and other people who were wondering when she shot down transmisogyny, check 24:55 when the interviewer tries to trip her up for specifying girl with vagina as opposed to girl without vagina and she’s just like “yeah so what”
In the scene in The Incredibles where Helen (Elastagirl) is flying the plane, her use of radio protocol is exceptionally accurate for a movie. The terminology used hints that she has had military flight training. In the director’s commentary Brad Bird says that actress Holly Hunter insisted on learning both the lingo and its meaning.
“VFR on top” means she is flying in the regime of Visual Flight Rules ‘on top’ of a cloud cover.
She requests “vectors to the initial”, or directions on how to get to the initial landing approach.
“Angels 10” is her altitude call, ten thousand feet. This is a military term. Civilian flights use the term “flight level”.
“Track east” is her direction of travel.
“Buddy spike(d)” is a US military brevity code meaning “friendly anti-aircraft radar has locked on to me, (please don’t shoot)”.
“Transmitting in the Blind Guard” is a call on the emergency frequency where 2-way communication has not been established.
“Abort” is also a military brevity code, a directive meaning “stop the action/mission/attack”.
god i love when actors/ voice actors are intent on using correct lingo for things like this
its so easy to BS this sort of thing and sometimes it might work but it’s vastly more impressive when they actually use correct terminology
there’s a sort of terminal between timelines, and two time-travellers’ paths cross- both of whom repeat and redo and trap themselves in a hell of their own choosing in order to bring happiness to their beloved.
and when their god is in their heaven, everything is all right in the world.
i fucking hate marina and the diamonds because she’s emblematic of all white women—particularly those celebrated as feminist or pro-woman—taking the nearest opportunity to shit on WoC and black entertainers, musicians and women in general
i’ll tell you one thing. nicki minaj has gotten more shit from white women and men alike than matd ever will. if you stan the fuck outta marina and celebrate her as pro-(white) woman without recognizing her unnecessary and unoriginal shit against nicki—who has in several instances spoken about being a woman, how she’s perceived as such, how it fucks with her, and is ultimately proud of who she is and her accomplishments—then you can get the fuck outta here w/yr white feminism and lazy, subtly racially misogynistic media analysis kthxbai
