I’ve had such a shitty week. I can’t sleep, feel like shit and tomorrow(today) I get to visit my friend in hospital. The fun times I’m having right now, I can’t even express them
Did Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” movie give the Sphinx a white/European makeover?
The backlash against Ridley Scott’s Exodus is gathering momentum. After Noah’s mixed reception earlier this year, more and more people are sick of seeing movies with “whitewashed” casts: White actors representing historical figures who almost certainly were not white.
The latest accusation of Exodus whitewashing relates to someone who technically isn’t even a character: the Sphinx.
The likeliest explanation is that the sculpture in this picture is not the Sphinx, but is in fact a statue of Ramses. This means that it would have been based on actor Joel Edgerton’s face.
Unfortunately, this just makes the whitewashed casting even more blatant, because real statues of Ramses II simply do not look like that. So while Exodus may not have made a “white version” of the Sphinx, Egyptian culture is still being erased and rewritten to fit in with the film’s predominantly white cast of actors.

I have been completely screwed over by my own dad
Instead of doing the right thing and removing the stolen fanart from her account that fanart thief made her account private. wow… just wow
I feel like shit. My neck is stiff, the small of my back is killing me and I’ve had a sore throat for three days.
Beading bracelets can be so bloody frustrating
The sooner my business is making money the better because I can’t stand working for my dad much longer
"I don’t mind them writing about the characters, but when they write about us, doing things, with each other… It’s, it’s just, it’s uncomfortable. It’s way too far. ‘Cause it’s like, I mean like, they’re co-workers, they’re like siblings, y’know, you don’t want to read things about you… doing stuff. It’s, oh, god, it’s just, no, terrifying."
