[…]Winter Soldier is this crazy, dark, RoboCop-type figure who is somewhat human but mechanised, completely messed up. Slightly human but completely tortured and completely manipulated, but crucially mechanised. So I said you know what, I’m gonna do something completely crazy and dark for the Winter Soldier, and I’m just gonna go for it. I hadn’t worked with these directors before, and away from picture I just wrote a suite for the Winter Soldier that was about six or seven minutes long that I spent ages on and treated it like a record. The idea being that if I get this vibe right, if I nail this six or seven minute thing which I think is the essence of the character and it’s super radical and it’s not that traditional and not completely orchestral because I want to save some of that for Captain America, let’s just see what these guys say. I played it for them really loud, and after they were finished there was a bit of a silence, and then Joe [Russo] went “I love it! Awesome!”- Henry Jackman on theme music he composed for the Winter Soldier character
(Warning: the track is indeed weird and creepy and unsettling
and so totally fucking awesome)Listen with headphones y’all.
#high school senior bucky#who drags steve to parties and gets him beer (nobody will serve steve ever it’s kinda hilarious)#bucky with no family and one friend and a smile for everyone he only sorta means#with good grades but an attitute that makes teachers sigh and tell him they wished he applied himself more#who watches over steve like a guard dog and a circling moon and a brother and some other things he’s not as good at hiding as he thinks#gets in fights because steve gets in fights#applies to colleges because steve leaves brochures out and gives him that look#who tries not to keep his hand on steve’s shoulder too long or leave his eyes on steve’s mouth too often#hooks up with girls and brags like he’s making a point because he is: he’s fine#he’s got everything he needs even if it’s nothing he wants#and they’re almost done with high school and steve’s finally had a growth spurt and bucky’s twice as arrogantly miserably sullen as usual#’what’s your problem?’ steve demands as he follows him out of the gym during prom#eyes all lit up and demanding like he ever needs to do more than breathe in bucky’s direction#’maybe you’re my problem’ bucky spits#cause he was drinking before and he’s been drinking during and given the expression steve’s wearing he’ll probably need to be drinking after too#and steve’s in his face - taller than him now#the fucker - looking sad and determined and squaring off for a fight he’s already won even if he doesn’t know it#so bucky figures to hell with it#he goes for the kiss and waits for the shove#because if you fall long enough you start longing for the ground#but steve’s kissing him back with one hand on his jaw and the other on his nape and his eyes wide open#like he needs bucky to see that he’s here right now and this is the choice he’s making#’you think it’s just you’ steve whispers like it’s revelation instead of gospel#and bucky says something about never being that bright#and the only reason steve doesn’t tell him otherwise is ‘cause bucky seals their mouths together#and it’s not a metaphor or a realignment of the planets or whatever#it’s them#it’s always them (via queerly-it-is)
ALSO, IF YOU’RE COMMENTING ON SEBASTIAN STAN’S INSTAGRAM CALLING HIM AN ‘ASSHOLE’ OR SAYING ‘GOD I HATE YOU’ IN YOUR RAGE-LOVE FOR HIM, STOP IT. THOSE ARE MEAN THINGS TO SAY TO SOMEONE WHO IS NOT PRIVY TO INTERNET FANGIRLING. STOP IT NOW.

Wait, Sebastian Stan has an Instagram? Why am I always behind on the news? Of to search.
Hey Jude in my ass.
the voice in my ass
Slipped in my ass
Monster in my ass
Let it go in my ass
how good does it feel in my ass

DAY #430: MY GRANDMA GIVES A DANCE LESSON
I’ve spent the last few years trying to define what home is. Is it a structure, is it a person, a moment. Or maybe it’s a dance. This one.
“Dance, dance, wherever you may be,
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he,
And I’ll lead you all,
wherever you may be,
And I’ll lead you all
in the Dance, said he.”

"I was on a plane watching a documentary about Diana Vreeland, who was the editor of Vogue for years, who is incredible […] They asked her ‘How do you get to be Diana Vreeland?’ and her response was ‘Well, darling, first you have to arrange to be born in Paris!’ And that worked for her, and that’s great, but if someone were to ask me, I’d say: First, you’d have to arrange to be born in the Bronx, to two brilliant, fantastic, Cuban immigrants who taught me grace under fire…sometimes quite literally, ‘cause it was the Bronx…who taught me that work was a blessing and not a chore, who taught me that you determine your self worth and that you tell people who you are…they don’t get to tell you." - Gina Torres
"A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks
I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.
