i'm just allergic to gravity

thank you very much


It’s hilarious that non-Americans on Tumblr are all like “OMG DENNY’S TUMBLR MAKES ME WISH I LIVED IN AMERICA SO I COULD EAT THERE,” while us Americans will literally only eat at Dennys if it’s 3 in the morning and we’ve lost control of our life.

"I… struggle with anxiety sometimes, especially when promoting films like this. Just the life of doing what I do, being in the public eye, it’s a stressful environment." -chris evans


It’s okay, Seb. Take your time. [x]


New Arrivals is telling a pretty strong watermelon-inspired color story today. :)


GIVEAWAY - Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier: The Art of the Movie (Hardback/Slipcase)

I am giving away a copy of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier: The Art of the Movie!! As The Winter Soldier is easily my favorite Marvel film to date, I pre-ordered this book without a second thought. Then I said to myself, “Why not give away another copy as thanks for reaching 16,500 followers?” And here we are.

The description of this product (as found on Amazon):

Continuing their popular ART OF series of movie tie-in books, Marvel presents its latest blockbuster achievement! Featuring exclusive concept artwork, behind-the-scenes photographs, production stills, and in-depth interviews with the cast and crew, THE ART OF CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is a deluxe 232-page keepsake volume that provides an insider’s look into the making of the highly-anticipated film directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders and Sebastian Stan!

What must one do in order to enter this giveaway, you ask? The rules/guidelines are as follows:

  • You may like this post once and reblog it twice.
  • You do not have to be following me, but I would appreciate it if you checked out my icky blog. I post a lot of video games and superheroes/supervillains/brain-washed-best-friends-turned-assassins. And cry. That’s it. That’s my life.
  • No giveaway blogs.
  • Must be comfortable with giving me your address as this item will be mailed directly to you.
  • I will ship nearly anywhere. Even if you live on Asgard, I’ll find a way to get this to you.
  • Giveaway will end on April 20th, yo!
  • Will be using a Random Number Generator to select the winner.
  • In case you are skeptical, here’s proof I have two copies pre-ordered.
  • You may also read a stellar review on this artbook (via parkablogs) right here.

If you have any questions, you can find me here or on Twitter (I am more likely to respond via Twitter as the messaging system on Tumblr is a tad wonky). Good luck and don’t forget to cry about Bucky Barnes!
