my favourite thing about William Shatner is that he is obsessed with Reddit, he goes on there all the time and talks about it all the time, its so good, and then one day, he got really upset with the behaviour of [coughing]the majority of redditors[/coughing] and actually commented that he thought the moderation should change and rules should be enforced and how upset he was seeing all this racism, sexism etc etc.

and fan boys on reddit who had literally been falling over their feet trying to send Mr. Shatner Messages and shower him in love, suddenly turned around and were vilifying him and even saying that somehow The Feminist Agenda had gotten to William Shatner

it was honestly the fucking funniest thing I have ever experienced and its one of my fondest memories

by the way, i’m not making this up, it was amazing i was there i saw this first hand it was history in the making

i loved it

i love william shatner

Bodyslammin’ Nazi’s,

Believe it or not, in the 1930’s American had its own Nazi party.  The German American Bund was a fascist organization founded by the German immigrant Heinz Spanknoble under the directions of Nazi Deputy Chief Rudolf Hess.  The group was openly pro-Nazi and anti-Semitic.  On the eve of World War II a Nazi group in America was about as popular as well… a Nazi group today.

One day in 1939 the Nazi’s at the German American Bund headquarters in New York were astonished to see a diminutive man place a ladder in front of their building and tear down the large sign at their doorway which read "No Dogs or Jews Allowed!".  The Nazi’s wanted retribution, and faster than a Hitler salute the 5’4”, 140 pound little middle aged man found himself surrounded by 20 armed fascist thugs.

The diminutive little man was a Jewish immigrant named Joseph Greenstein.  As a child Greenstein was forced to flee his home in Poland in the early 1900’s to escape a rash of anti-Semitic violence.  Joe Greenstein, also known by the stage name “The Mighty Atom” made a fine living for himself in America as a circus strongman and professional wrestler.  Earning himself the title “The Worlds Strongest Man”, Greenstein’s act included such feats as bending metal bars, straightening horseshoes, biting nails in half with his teeth, driving nails with his bare hands, changing a car tire without any tools, snapping chains wrapped around his chest through chest expansion, squat lifting a car, and resisting the takeoff of an airplane with his hair.  He was also known for having apprenticed with strongmen from Russia and India, trained with the famous heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson, and once sustained a .38 caliber pointblank gunshot to the skull without being injured.

The Nazi’s intended to re-arrange Greenstein’s face, free of charge.  One of the Nazi’s sneaked behind Greenstein and pinned his arms while three or four others proceeded to punch and kick him.  The fight only went downhill for the Nazi’s from there.  Moments later the police arrived on the scene to find 20 incapacitated men, and one uninjured Joseph Greenstein.

Greenstein was charged with aggravated assault, grievous bodily harm, and mass mayhem.  However the judge dismissed the case due to disbelief that one man could take on 20.  There was also a severe lack of evidence since 20 of the Nazi’s, many of whom were still in the hospital, refused to testify against him.

During World War II Greenstein did war bond tours for the US Military.  He also trained police officers and soldiers in Jiu Jitsu and unarmed combat.  Greenstein continued his act even into his old age.  He was featured in the Guiness Book of World Records and Ripley’s Believe it or Not.  On his off time he made and sold his own handmade coconut body soaps.  His last act occurred on May 11th, 1977 at Madison Square Garden.  Six months later he lost his final battle, succumbing to cancer at the age of 84.

We have to understand that no matter what we do with our lives we will never be as awesome as Christopher Lee is.

I will never get over how he corrected Peter Jackson on the proper sound a man makes when he’s been stabbed in the back because he actually worked in the British clandestine services.
Or how he volunteered to fight in one of the most brutal fronts of WWII (the Finnish-Russian Winter War).
Or how he was fucking NAZI HUNTER.
Basically, Christopher Lee is the real Most Interesting Man in the world and I honestly don’t know why we tell Chuck Norris jokes when this badass is walking around.
And then I see him rambling on about how Saruman and Gandalf are actually Istari, which are one of the Maia in the LotR commentaries and I realize he literally cannot become more awesome.

Oh can’t he?

#Christopher Lee wrote a Metal Opera about Charlemagne #all opinions are irrelevant
I just read up on that and now I regret I didn’t include it! The man is 90 years old and he’s releasing a metal album next year. ACTUAL MOST INTERESTING MAN IN THE WORLD CHRISTOPHER LEE.

[swoons]

OH GOD I FORGOT ABOUT HIS METAL
GOD HE’S HARDCORE AS FUCK

He’s also played Dracula like 5 billion times and in the first one he refused to use the terrible dialogue and wasn’t fired.
He was also bros with Vincent Price and Peter Cushing, but unlike them was able to get away from the horror genre and forged a well-rounded career.
He can speak 8 languages and will sometimes do his own dubbing for foreign versions of his films.
His family carries the coat of arms of the Holy Roman Empire.
He’s related to John Lee, Robert E. Lee, and Ian Fleming.
He really is the most interesting man in the world.

do you ever just cry because christopher lee

This is why I can’t have nice things… because Christopher Lee has them all already.

He also actually had JRR Tolkien’s blessing to play Gandalf.

excuse you, but robert e lee is related to HIM

Five Historical Movies About Asians Hollywood Never Made

racebending:

asianamericanfilmlab:

1. Asian Soldiers in the American Civil War

image

Edward Day Cahota and Corporal Joseph L. Pierce were two of a known total of 58 Asian soldiers who fought in the American Civil War. Pierce was the highest ranked Chinese-American to have served in the war and was at both the Battle of Gettysburg and Antietam ( x ). Cahota was found, half-starving on a ship when he was a child, before being adopted by the captain and growing up as a cabin boy. In 1864, he served under General Ulysses S. Grant.

Both Pierce and Cahota were denied citizenship, due to the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act, even despite the fact that Cahota had served for 30 years with the army. Cahota, however, “was said to have enjoyed telling his children that he had voted repeatedly—in fact, had cast his ballots for Republicans for 30 years—before it was found out that he was not really a citizen and therefore not qualified to vote.” ( x )

Did we mention that Joseph L. Pierce looked great in uniform?

2. Asian Women in WWII

image

As soon as the war began, Asian-American women entered the workforce along with their white neighbors. The Chinese Women’s Association raised over $30,000 in donations for war refugees, and women from all over the country contributed their skills and time to the war effort. Katherine Lowe, who was of Hawaiian and Chinese descent and her best friend Elizabeth Moku both applied for jobs at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. There they lugged around oil drums, trained to fight fires, and Moku played with an undefeated baseball team. ( x

image

Across the Atlantic, British Asian Noor Inaya Khan served as a radio operator of a French resistance network, under the codename ‘Madeleine.’ She doggedly avoided capture as other members of the network were arrested, moving quickly and never staying in one place for very long. Betrayed by a Frenchwoman, Khan was finally found by the Gestapo, escaped from prison, only to be captured again soon after. She remained staunchly loyal, even under torture, and gave her life to the cause when she was sent to the Dachau concentration camp and executed. ( x )

Rosie the Riveter has always looked liked us. The question is when will Hollywood catch up with history.

3. Siguhara Chiune

image

The other WWII hero Spielberg could (and should) have made a movie about, Siguhara Chiune saved the lives of over 6,000 Jews by issuing them travel visas to Japan. Serving as Vice-Consul for Japan in Lithuania at the time, Sughara ignored the sky-high requirements the refugees couldn’t meet, and after consulting with his family, began writing visas in direct violation of his orders. And yet, not only did he issue visas illegally, he issued a months worth of them each day, spending 18-20 hours a day on his mission.

And there’s more:

On the night before their scheduled departure, Sugihara and his wife stayed awake writing out visa approvals. According to witnesses, he was still writing visas while in transit from his hotel and after boarding the train at the Kaunas Railway Station, throwing visas into the crowd of desperate refugees out of the train’s window even as the train pulled out.

In final desperation, blank sheets of paper with only the consulate seal and his signature (that could be later written over into a visa) were hurriedly prepared and flung out from the train. As he prepared to depart, he said, “Please forgive me. I cannot write anymore. I wish you the best.” When he bowed deeply to the people before him, someone exclaimed, “Sugihara. We’ll never forget you. I’ll surely see you again!” ( x )

If that’s not Oscar bait, we don’t know what is.

4. Xiang Fe the Fragrant Concubine

image

Allow us to quote directly from Medieval POC, one of our favorite blogs on tumblr.

The Fragrant Concubine is a figure who blends history with legend in a way that has yet to be unraveled. She is said to have been an Uighur.  The Uighurs are a Muslim Ethnic group concentrated in the Northwestern Chinese Province of Xinjiang […] According to legend, after the glorious defeat of the Uighurs in Altishahr in 1759, the triumphant Manchu general Zhahui returned to Beijing with war booty, including the remarkable consort […] said to emit a natural fragrance and became known as the Fragrant Concubine.

Although given to the Quinlong Emperor as a concubine, she resisted any intimate contact with him and carried small knives in the sleeves of her clothing in order to revenge the loss of her homeland. But he emperor was so entrances with her that he is said to have built a Muslim mosque and bazaar just beyond the southwest corner of the Beijing Palace…and a tower just inside the walls from which she could supposedly ease her homesickness by watching her fellow Muslims conducting business and going to the mosque.

(Mungello p 68, 69)

So many cosplay possibilities, so little time.

5. Pirates!

image

Wipe the unfortunate caricatures from Pirates of the Caribbean 3 out of your mind. Ching Shih not only gave the colonial powers a run for their money, she was one of the few pirates to live long and well enough to retire, let alone do so with an undefeated track record of terror. A prostitute kidnapped by pirates, she married their captain and maneuvered her way into power after his death by building rapport with her rivals. She united the fleet of pirates her husband began under a new moral code of law, which included a death sentence for any pirate who raped a female captive. ( x )

image

The Pirates of the Malabar had their fair share of adventure as well. Lead by Kanhoji Angre, the Maratha Confederacy attacked merchant ships of the East India Trading Company, and in 1712, Angre captured the British President of Mumbai. In 1715, the new British President of Mumbai tried to return the favor, only have three of his ships taken and his port blockaded. Angre ransomed 8,750 pounds from the East India Company for his troubles. Considered a hero by anti-imperialists, a statue of Angre stands in the  Naval Dockyard in Mumbai. ( x )
