THE most underrated scene in the entire movie. It was perfect. And do you know how often I see gif sets of it? This is the second one I’ve seen since the movie came out (It’s been over 5 months, now).
So let’s just pause for a moment from reblogging gifs of Tony’s sass, Loki’s sex appeal, or Bruce’s fluffiness and just appreciate this nameless, old, German guy and how, even though he knew he would probably die, he stood up to a tyrant to prove that the human race wouldn’t give up their freedom so easily.
Friendly reminder that it’s implied that he’s a Holocaust survivor.
Friendly REMINDER that he’s comparing Loki to Hitler
Friendly reminder that if you really needed the internet to tell you what this scene was about you are somehow immune to heavy-handed and utterly obvious filmmaking and you are the reason that brainless Summer blockbuster films exist and why they have to explain everything in the trailers.
Also a friendy reminder that I absolutely loved The Avengers and I say this out of love not hate because I said friendly reminder.

3 out of the last 4 Pixar films released have been sequels. A sequel to Finding Nemo and yet another sequel to Toy Story are in the works.
Simply Complex / The Lone Wolf LP Kickstarter Campaign
Simply Complex is a project I’ve been working on since 2008. I initially planned for it to be my 2nd full-length release, but the influence of the Japanese hip-hop scene and life in general steered me down a different path.
It was after the release of my first album, Revival of the Fittest, that I got my first record deal with a major label in Japan, and was subsequently signed to a now defunct independent-label called Elevation.
Fast-forward through five years of on-and-off production of the project now titled Simply Complex, and we arrive here. Over the past five years I’ve been collaborating with some of the most prolific underground MCs in the game.
The album features artists including:
- Del the Funky Homosapien
- Royce Da 5’9”
- Crooked I
- Planet Asia
- and many more
This album is a true sequel to Revival of the Fittest. Gritty, honest, hard-hitting, boom-bap hip hop that doesn’t pull any punches. I’ve put blood, sweat, and maybe some tears (thugs don’t cry) into this project for five years, and now it’s time for the world to hear it.
So once again, I call upon my faithful, unfaltering, dedicated fans to help me make this dream a realization. So as to not burden you with a five-year wait for your awesome Kickstarter incentives, I took the liberty of financing this album out of my own pocket; pockets that are now all-but turned inside out. I have faith in this project and in my vision, but as we all know, artistic vision comes at a price. Expression is priceless, but the production of it is not.
Your hard-earned money will be used for:
- Mixing of the album
- Mastering of the album
- Studio Time for artists
- Graphic Designers and Artists for Album Art Direction
- Manufacturing of CDs (of course this will be a physically released album)
- Vinyl Version of the Album and Singles if we surpass our goal.
- Simply Complex T-shirts
- Shipping costs
- Music Videos
- Behind the Scenes Videos/Making the Beat Videos
- And finally…production of my next album, a sequel of sorts to Melancholy Hopeful.
As stated above, any funds left over from this project will go directly to funding my next album, The Lone Wolf LP. So if the line up of artists on Simply Complex doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, have no fear jazz hip hoppers, The Lone Wolf LP will. Even in its early stages, the album already features artists like Substantial, Cise Starr, Pismo, DJ Okawari, Midicronica, and more. Our goal of $5,000 is the bare minimum needed to make these projects happen. I’ve spent almost double, funding Simply Complex already, but this will provide the final push needed to see it through.
Thank you all for being my backbone and helping me share my music with the world.
Let’s make it happen again.

lol that’s a raspberry pi and they cost 30 bucks and you aren’t “making” a computer by plugging in a keyboard and a tv…
1. No, Vaatu has not been destroyed; he was absorbed by Raava who in turn resides within Korra. Light and Dark can never truly be separated. He won’t appear until 10,000 years later.
If you have to make a fucking 6-point guide just to understand what the hell happened during a show/movie, chances are it wasn’t very well-written.
