The Pile

Stuff I like!
boringrocks:

BBC’s SHERLOCK, 3.1:
After the Great Gonzo’s fantastic leap from the top of a massive high-rise, even his closest friend Rizzo the Rat believed he had perished. However, a legion of Muppet fans, led by Gonzo’s awkward and obsessive acquaintance Walter, have been working to assemble their own theories.
The bungee-jumping seems plausible, as does the assistance from the Great Gonzo’s legendary Chicken Network, but we all know that him kissing Miss Mousey seems a little far-fetched.
Just wait until Dr. Bunsen Honeydew brings Gonzo back to England. Walter won’t believe his eyes.
And Rizzo? We know he’ll say, “#IDontShaveForTheGreatGonzo.”

Tired of Waiting? Grow your own Groot!

I know I have wanted a baby dancing Groot to sit on my desk since watching Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend. But, alas, it is Wednesday and there is still no Groot to market! So, I shall show you how to make one! 
This project will take a bit of patience, some materials you probably do NOT have handy, and….glue. (sorry, the few followers I have! But it is hot glue, so it dries fast!) It also probably is NOT going to look as pretty as the eventual marketed version, but, hey! Baby Groot!
Details after the break:

I am so fucking glad that they didn’t force these two into a romantic relationship.

BEST FRIEEEEEEEEEEENDS.

it’s even better when you remember, that every second they are not dying, she keeps trying to hook him up with any girl, she’s his wingwoman

She’s his Barney Stinson.

Haaaaaaaaaave you met Steve?

Barney belongs with Maria Hill and nothing you say or do will change that. NOTHING!

Things that NEED to happen when The Avengers meet The Guardians of the Galaxy

sergeant-ford:

Drax and Thor arm wrestling

Clint climbing up in Groot and using him as an archers perch and Natasha being embarassed

Tony and Peter talking about their favorite music

Steve and Thor trying to make small talk with Gamora

Bruce being amazed by Rocket

Nick Fury being pissed that theres is more motherfucking heros on his motherfucking airship

Hulk and Groot having three-word conversations. 

Rocket and Tony have a tinkering contest with random junk lying around.

Steve has to catch up Peter on all of the latest updates to culture since the 1980s….and is fustrated with the differing attitudes. 

Drax and Thor have a drinking contest/arm wrestling match. 

Loki and Gamora commiserate over their god-step-daddy issues. 

Rocket tries to take Bucky’s arm. Repeatedly. It is important to him. 

Natasha, Clint, and Gamora take some time to compare assasin techiques. Maybe start a convention. 

Groot finds out he can get high off of arc reactor energy. 

zmyaro:

I want to see Augustus Waters explain metaphors to Drax the Destroyer. Tumblr, get on this.

YOU BASTARDS, YOU TOLD ME THERE WOULD BE OOGAS AND CHAKKAS. I WASN’T PREPARED TO GET HOOKED ON ALL THESE FEELINGS.

You know when they said the doctor turned his companions into weapons, This was not what I expected

She looks like a personification of the Tardis.

Peter Groot Potter, you were named after two guardians of the galaxy. One of them was a tree and he was the bravest man I ever knew.

James Gunn’s thank you to the cast, crew, fans, and moviegoers who helped make GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY a hit.
"Thanks to all of you who saw (and are seeing) Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend, from the bottom of my heart. The Guardians are a group of oddballs, outcasts, and geeks. The movie is for anyone who ever felt cast aside, left out, or different. It’s for all of us who don’t belong. This movie belongs to you. And, today, I think we’re doing okay.
I am of course happy with all the film has accomplished box-office-wise. But what touches me the most is that the film I told the folks at Marvel I wanted to make two years ago is the film that you’re seeing in theaters today - it’s that so many of you seem to be directly EXPERIENCING the film I INTENDED. The cast, the producers, the crew, and I felt like we were making something special while we were making it. But it is very rare that a director’s INTENTIONS in creating a film, or a scene, or a character, or a line of dialogue are, seemingly, specifically what is experienced by an audience (not to mention critics!), and that seems to be what has happened here. You have allowed a talking raccoon - for a moment, a minute, or a day - to make you a little more human. And for that, I am profoundly grateful.

If I relied on myself to implement these intentions, the film would be a shambling mess. But instead, I had a wonderful cast, genius producers, an incredibly brave studio, sublimely talented visual effects artists, great editors, and the best damn crew of mostly-British bastards to actually implement these intentions for me. Where I had a good idea they would, through alchemy, transform it into a great one. Many of you involved are friends of mine on Facebook. Many of you will read this somewhere else. I love you all.
You may remember me posting here a couple weeks ago how sad I was to be finishing up the film, that I was having trouble letting go of Rocket, and that I was going to miss him. But seeing him (and Groot, and the rest of the team) embraced by the world like they have been, to be UNDERSTOOD, makes it a wonderful letting go. It’s like giving a foster pet up for adoption to the most wonderful parents in the world.
And, of course, I’m not really saying goodbye as, while many of you have been enjoying the film, I’ve spent this weekend hard at work on the sequel. I couldn’t help myself! The results are nice but it’s really the creative process I love and that keeps me going. I’m on fire with this thing! The Guardians have so many hardships and heartaches and triumphs ahead of them, and I can’t wait to share them with all of you.
Onto week two…
Love, James”
From all the fans:THANK YOU JAMES!

From all the fans:THANK YOU JAMES!

This debut, an original space opera starring a cast of mostly [non-stars] proves two things. First it means that there is no summer slump. Audiences will flock to theaters if the film debuting is something they all want to see. Second, it means that Marvel can do whatever it wants now. So if they choose not to make a female-centric or minority-centric superhero film, it’s because they just don’t want to.

Not really sure what Thanos’ gameplan is, but so far he’s 0 for 3 in acquiring Infinity Stones…

He’s been beaten to them by;

  • The Avengers
  • Thor and his lovable trio of idiots
  • The Guardians of the Galaxy

For someone aiming for all 6, he’s doing a poor job
