One of my close friends is a belly dancer
And god help you if she gets bored and decides to knock her hip against yours
Like we could just be walking
I SWEAR THEY HAVE THE MOST POWERFUL HIPS ON THE PLANET
Tumblr user shubbabang is blasting off again!
The hips, they don’t lie…
Yes! Yes! Yes! it’s uber-revolting!!!
But Clive, at least Maurice will shave it off once you ditch him. Unlike your own later ludicrous ’tache, calculated to make audiences burst into singing Queen’s ‘We are the Champions’ every time you appear.
This scene also illustrates fiwen9430’s comment [x] about hair (facial or otherwise) and textual fidelity. In the novel, (black-haired) Maurice’s (thin/pencil) moustache (and the line that it will be ‘the making of him’) appears much earlier (Ch. 8, before the creaky-chair making-out scene), and signals his burgeoning hotness. In EMF’s early drafts, Maurice/Alec is a meeting of two (hot-sex) clipped moustaches. :)) The film, obviously, uses ‘the leaping moustache’ [x] rather differently…
I’m so glad Alec didn’t have a moustache in the movie!
You and most of us! Eek, I don’t want to think about it, especially with the unruly curls…
I love Alec’s hair <3
Mmmm…who doesn’t? «3 (*horny sighs* *points to own icon and masthead* *heavier sighs*)
But a moustache with that beautiful head of curls is wrong. Especially the kind of (thin, clipped) ’tache Forster seemed to be into… [x]
What does he mean by a clipped moustache? Is that like David Niven or Clark Gable (when he’s in Gone With The Wind)?
de-profundis-url I think ‘clipped’ technically just means trimmed and groomed, rather than untamed facial hair. ;)) Possibly using clippers rather than scissors. (More on the art of ’tache grooming, and styles, here [x] [x])
Niven and Gable both had pencil moustaches: clipping at its most extreme to leave just a fine line of hair that defines the upper lip. In illustration, have some random Jean Dujardin with a puppy:
But EMF calls Alec’s moustache ‘clipped but boyish’. To me, that implies not very hairy (perhaps Alec’s first attempt to cultivate a moustache, bless), but carefully groomed. <3
From EMF’s moustache descriptions of both Maurice and Alec, the thing he seems to find sexy is the ’tache/teeth combo (neat moustache as a frame for the mouth in an otherwise clean-shaven face).
EMF’s description of (black-haired, canon) Maurice in Ch. 9 (‘The little black line of it did pull his face together, and show up his teeth when he smiled’) definitely implies something like a pencil moustache, in contrast with James’ hairier style in the film.
What I get from EMF’s 1914 early-draft description of ’tache!Alec is that his style of facial hair and attention to grooming perhaps differ from what Maurice might expect of an outdoors servant or non-urban working-class male. Does EMF drop it in there as a clue to something unexpected or unknown about Alec? (His sexuality, the trysts/sex with women – we don’t know if there have also been boys/men before Maurice – individualism, a resistant refusal to accept ‘his place’…?)
With all that in mind, the idea of Alec sporting a similar (thin) moustache to Maurice amuses me. I still can’t see a Clark Gable-style pencil line with his ‘surging cliff’ of hair* – but how about this light-growth pencil variant, modelled below by Prince? :D
*Though it would totally work if Rupert had been given a pencil moustache as John Beaver in A Handful of Dust…
glad to know i’m not the only one that think’s clive’s stache makes him look like freddie mercury
80sworld Definitely not the only one. Take it from an 80sperson: the more times you watch Maurice, the more Clive looks like Fred…
yeah so i slept with this dude last night and idk we were chatting a bit during the sexy time and for some reason his birthday came up and i was like “wait 25th of september? DUDE me TOO, wtf thats such a coincidence” and he was like “really? we have the same birthday? are u fuckin with me?” and i just looked down at his penis literally inside my vagina and was like “well technically yeah” and he was like haha nice one and high fived me
d’you think the avengers ever play a game where they try to push steve’s buttons and get him all riled up and patriotic?
tony casually throws it into a conversation like “oh yeah I don’t vote” and steve trails off mid-sentence and gapes for a second before he starts in on the importance of the democratic process and how dangerous it can be if citizens give up their say in how the government is run and tony is trying so so hard to keep a straight face
meanwhile bruce is standing in the background timing the speech with his watch because whoever gets the longest rant wins a little trophy that tony made. the current holder of the trophy is clint who managed to convince steve that he doesn’t pay taxes
actual 5 year olds
Thanks for the nightmares you’re going to give me tonight.
My friend’s dad used to work at a movie theatre where a lot of celebrities came to apparently and one time Tom Hanks came in and he was feeding tickets into the machine and couldn’t see anything so the guy up top was like “dude, that’s Tom Hanks” and her dad was like “yeah right if that’s Tom Hanks I’ll start eating these tickets” and Tom Hanks leans over the counter and whispers “start eating the tickets”
that sounds like responsibility and i want no part in it
Oh my God. I remember that cartoon too, it’s not a manip.
For some of their films, Disney would film real actors so that the animators could watch them for reference.
I LOVE this! ♥
