An immortal being has the ability to share their power with one soul and make them immortal too, so they can have a companion for all the years if they choose. Only one though. This being has had countless lovers and friends, and they have seen them all fade away as time passes….

"I do have one kid from a previous relationship. It’s an eight-legged stallion. Long story. You won’t see him around, so don’t worry."
"Some time-travelers like to see big disasters as they’re happening, but I really prefer to visit the quiet time right before the disasters. Just to see so many people with no idea what’s going to happen in a few hours. And I like to do simple, normal stuff. Get some dinner. Go on dates."
"I wish the internet had more young men talking about video games. I really worry that all their voices are going unheard."
Chris Markus: We always wanted to approach Sam through the prism of a being fellow veteran. Someone who could speak to Steve on that level as opposed to, you know, because he’s Captain America. And also we brought up the idea that Steve, in addition to everything else he’s gone through, spent four years in World War II. That’s very traumatic stuff. And he has never had a chance to decompress about any of it.
Anthony Russo: One of my favorite lines from him is, where he says: “I’m more of a soldier than a spy.” I just loved that so much because it speaks to his relationship with Cap and their nature.
Joe Russo: You guys did a great job with this scene. This is probably the hardest scene in the movie because it leads to the biggest buy in the film, which is - well, maybe there’s a couple of other big buys - that Cap is gonna go back to a guy he met jogging on the mall when his life is in danger because he’s the only guy he can trust. So it was important that these two connect on a very deep level, an emotional level in this scene.
Chris Markus: It’s always a credit to Mackie.
Steve McFeely: Yeah. I trust Mackie.
Chris Markus: You would go to Anthony Mackie. Some people you wouldn’t go to.
Joe Russo: Let’s talk about Mackie for a second. It’s a reason we cast him is one, you know, I’ve never not seen a truthful moment from him on screen, and two, he has this incredible ability to combine charm and integrity. A difficult thing to do is to be funny and convey integrity at the same time.
Steve McFeely: He’s not shallow.
Joe Russo: He has great depth as an actor which allows Steve to feel the depth, the audience to feel the depth, which makes you believe that Steve would trust this guy even though their relationship is so new.

So, once upon a time I said, “If you can’t tell Captain America what you’re doing, you probably shouldn’t be doing it” and it inspired a poem by Catt Kingsgrave (aka theactualcluegirl) which eventually led to this pre-release rough-draft single, The Ballad Of Captain America’s Disapproving Face (also available for listening here on SoundCloud).
I guarantee you will never laugh this hard at any other song that opens with a riff on the Star Spangled Banner. Also there is, if I’m not mistaken, a kazoo cover of Star Spangled Man involved.
Anyhow, Murder Ballads is working on an album, and if you like the song, consider throwing a few bucks their way to help get their album made.

OMFG. LISTEN TO THE THING, FOLKS.
THIS IS FUCKING AMAZING
Q: How many male novelists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A: The beast, which had represented his feelings, was dead. “I think I’ll do a pushup,” he announced to the sea. The sea respected him for it.

THIS VIDEO WAS SO SATISFYING
This gives me life
How music changed from 2000-2013.
i feel so fucking old right now…
Anyone else notice how more songs were in a minor key at the beginning of the video?
A) I knew progressively fewer of the songs as the video progressed;
B) Nothing quite defines for me what I like in pop music like juxtaposing it with the things I know I don’t. Like the soullessness of Katy Perry, Usher, Gwen Stefani and Bieber, against Beyoncé, Rihanna, P!nk and Kelly Clarkson, whom I adore.
imagine how pissed bucky got when he learned that steve jumped on a grenade in training camp
#Peggy tells the story with the utmost fondness#Bucky goes really still#and then sLOWLY turns to LOOK at Steve#who very pointedly is looking straight ahead#slowly starting to sweat as Bucky’s tries to glare a hole stRAIGHT THROUGH HIS THICK GODDAMN SKULL
So I dyed my cats pink with leftover beet water. No regrets! <3 :D
I had to wash them because of some oil spill they had gotten into, and chose to use the beet water, which is perfectly safe. I had no idea it would really make them this pink.
I bet this poor person has gotten plenty of hate filled messages from people that didn’t read the caption and think she used real hair dye.
