Now Playing Tracks








Jack Nicholson, who played the Joker in 1989 - and who was furious he wasn’t consulted about the creepy role - offered a cryptic comment when told Ledger was dead. 

“Well,” Nicholson told reporters in London early Wednesday, “I warned him.”

That last quote gave me chills

Really? Interesting if true

I read something that said he told him not to do it. Joker is one of, if not the, most sadistic villains. He kills to kill. There’s no method. Which is why all of the previous portrails were campy or jokey.

There is no way you can portray a character like that and not bring home even the smallest bits of it.  It’s kind of sad. The Joker was scary as shit, and I honestly believe that getting into that character messed with his head.

It would be really interesting to see the notebook Ledger kept while working up the character, maybe it did mess with his head.. and that quote is something to think about, if true. 

Heath Ledger was hugely affected by this role. Nicholson did warn him against it. To prepare, Ledger spent vast amount of time alone and kept a production diary as mentioned above. The last thing he wrote in his diary was BYE BYE.
heath ledger's last journal entryLedger talked about his inability to fall asleep and how even with two ambien he barely slept at night. As is widely known, Ledger died of an overdose. Some say it was accidental while others believe he was a partier… The drugs he died of were meant for insonima, anxiety, pain, and a cold and none were taken in excess. Heath was a troubled man after his role as the joker, but no one can deny he played that role better than anyone ever had or ever will.

The sadness of the situation aside, this is an amazing photo of the jokers.

Crows are scary

  • use tools
  • Can be taught to speak (like parrots)
  • Have huge brains for birds
  • like seriously their brain-to-body size ratio is equal to that of a chimpanzee
  • They vocalize anger, sadness, or happiness in response to things
  • they are scary smart at solving puzzles
  • some ravens stay with their mates until one of them dies
  • they can remember faces
  • SIDENOTE HERE BECAUSE HOLY SHIT.  They did an experiment where these guys wore masks and some of them fucked with crows.  Pretty soon the crows recognized the masks = douchebag.  But the nice guys with masks they left alone.  THEN, OH WE’RE NOT DONE, NO SIR crows that WEREN’T EVEN IN THE EXPERIMENT AND NEVER SAW THE MASK BEFORE knew about mask-dudes and attacked them on sight.  THEY PASSED ON THE FUCKING INFORMATION TO THEIR CROW BUDDIES.
  • They remember places where crows were killed by farmers and change their migration patterns.

Guys I’m really scared of crows now.

i love crows so much

crows are amazing

My favorite legend is that crows are the souls of the dead

crows are the coolest shit

Yeah but have you seen this 


One time, during a particularly boring class, I watched a crow move a sweater (something too heavy for it) little by little out of the garbage can to get some chicken nuggets. 

Another time, a crow literally started playing with my dog in the backyard. It was the funniest thing. 

My dad had a pet crow when he was a teenager.  He didn’t teach it to speak, it learned to speak.  And promptly began to mock one of his sisters constantly.  And swear.

It learned his route to school and followed him a few times, as well.

Crows are rad as hell.

*I watched the documentary with the masks. They weren’t trying to test if information could be past to other crows, they were testing to see if information could be past from parent to child. The next generation crows that hadn’t even hatched yet were the ones who learned from the originals that mask=douchebags (douchebags with guns actually. the guys with masks shot at the trees to scare the birds)

Intelligence is nothing to fear. Crows are just like us :)

I always wondered where they rank on the intelligence scale, like pretty high right? I know that scale is human-made, but it still really interests me. I’d have thought crows would be on par with pigs? Interesting to find out anyway :)

I think it’s dumb crows are considered scary just because they show intelligence and human-like traits. They’re absolutely beautiful creatures and don’t screw things over like we do.
