The James Foley video. It looks… I dunno. I’ve watched it twice now. It seems very… Hollywood. Multiple camera angles, voice distortion, a relatively calm subject, even the lack of blood when he starts cutting, which is just a fade to black. In the countless years that these have been put out, there’s been no shying away from the actual act. This feels wrong. And fake. These people actually mount heads on spikes. Why would they fade to black on cutting someone’s head off?
Can you link to the video?

If you want to be friends with me you don’t have to be “Hi, um, can, ya know, we be friends?”
It is 1000000000000000000000% percent ok if you just go into my inbox can go. “Man, I am so fucking pissed off at fucking Larry.” And I’ll most likely respond with, “Oh shit! What did Larry do now?”
we praise men for the most trivial shit like “omg he buys you pads and chocolate!!!! hubby material!!!”

Nikki might have got the better mic skills…
but when it comes to wrestling skill, Brie got the lion’s share. (this is me in no way saying that Nikki sucks in the ring, just that they each have their strengths when it comes to the business. and also exorcising my right to use Lion King quotes on tumblr.)
I couldn’t disagree more with this. If you watch objectively, Nikki is much stronger and performs a variety of moves that Brie doesn’t.
but i just need to take a second to talk about the reactions to nikki’s turn last night
we have sign guy questioning the lord himself
dean ambrose fan almost jumping through the roof of the staples center
these 3 guys questioning everything they’ve ever known (feat. a guy who knew it was coming)
and my personal fucking favourite
I’m so confused. So many people hated Nikki while she was a face. But now that she’s a heel it’s “Oh My God Nikki is so fucking awesome!” Or “I love Nikki so much she was always my favorite Bella.” Okay, so why didn’t you like her when she was a face? When she was slaying just as much as she is now? Where were you? WHERE? In a corner talking about “Nikki still sucks tbh.” OH! OH goody fucking goody! But NOW since she has aligned with the Authority and turned against Brie it’s “YAS GO NIKKI!” But just a few months ago your ass was saying “I’m so sick of Nikki Bella she should of left too.” Man you can miss me with that Bandwagon bullshit because from face to heel my faith in Nikki never waivered.
First of all, if you really are a Nikki fan shouldn’t you be happy that she’s getting more recognition and more fans?
Secondly, Nikki was good tonight. That made me a fan. Other than that, she’s been pretty shitty. A lot of us disliked Nikki as a face (and basically everything before tonight) because she was really bad.
Finally, of course Nikki is going to gain a ton of fans right now. That’s what happens when a wrestler gets a good storyline & time on TV.
