Everyone is fascinated by Iago because there is no stepping back, which everyone else would do,” says Kinnear. “And, as the audience, you are his sole confidant about what he is doing, and that enlistment can be quite intoxicating … It puts the audience in the position where they both want him to stop it and to go on.
It would be interesting to know what Hamlet and Iago would look like if you played them without the soliloquies and let an audience make up their own minds,” he adds. “They’d probably find Hamlet quite annoying and they’d like Iago.

This is kind of what I’m getting at when I say that Spoiler Culture is kind of silly. If twist endings and surprises and unexpected revelations are the only things a story can use to draw in its audience, then characters like Iago and Hamlet and Richard III are next to impossible. I mean, a love a good twist ending as much as the next fellow, but there’s definitely something to be said for drawing the audience or readers in as accomplice is quite something, and it’s not an experience I wouldn’t want to do without, but too many modern works don’t even dare come near it, because too much emphasis is placed on the twist ending.

A work can be viewed from inside or outside or any combination of the two, yet Spoiler Culture only permits us a view on the action from outside, but trapped in time. If there’s no wall* built between the audience and the ultimate outcome of the events, if the audience is more aware of the story than the characters, the audience is genre savvy and the characters aren’t, then we get dragged into things in a sort of helpless position. We know it’ll all end in tears and blood, and there’s nothing we can do but watch. A good Iago is a frustrating Iago (and Kinnear is the best and most frustrating of Iagos), because we know what he knows and the other characters don’t, and we know what he perhaps doesn’t know, and there’s nothing we can do about it.

*I’m just going to start calling this the fifth wall


"I love playing someone who has so much integrity, who has so much joy and so much life—even though her life is now in prison. She’s locked up, but she’s able to build up joy anyway." - samira wiley for brooklyn magazine

logic at its finest

This is stupid though ‘cuz she’s headed for the door. He’s going further into the elevator. Even if the door isn’t open, there’s still a bit of a ledge near the door that you could stand on while bracing yourself against the railing. Once the door opens, you’d be in a good spot to exit via the door as well. What she’s going for is smarter than what he’s doing.

Also she clings to the rail, he throws his hands up. If he were to fall, he’d have nothing to hang on to, she’d at least be able to hold herself up by the rail

BOOM goes the dynamite

She was preaching

this gave me chills

Black woman who lost her son just preached on systemic racism, antiblackness, Black ppls internalized self-hatred and white supremacy. 

But some of y’all missed it

Anonymous asked: I'M SO FRUSTRATED this person keeps debating the shooting with me and keeps bringing up Mike Brown's "history." This person believes that he charged at Wilson, and I don't know how to refute that specific claim... btw-thank you so much for this blog♡

1. All eyewitnesses agree that Mike Brown did not charge at Darren Wilson:

2. Bring up Darren Wilson’s history:

Bonus info:

Reminder: you cannot convince people who do not want to be convinced…some people do not want to be convinced racism exists (unless ofc it’s “reverse racism”) because honestly acknowledging systemic anti-Blackness in a zero-sum game world makes them less innocent and less meritorious, and some people simply won’t ever be convinced because they’ve been drinking White supremacy koolaid their entire lives and are desperate to protect that privilege even if it means engaging in hegemony, and still others will engage in arguments about race not because they don’t understand, but for no other reason than to have an excuse to spew their hatred under the guise of playing “devil’s advocate” or “honest debate

And some people are just racist

Bottom line: Mike Brown was unarmed and was not a threat. Period. No White person in America would stand for Black cops shooting so many unarmed White teens with no immediate arrests and prosecutions

Darren Wilson needs to be arrested for murder and prosecuted immediately
