reblogging for great truth, and also because fuckbagel is the best thing i’ve ever heard
THE most underrated scene in the entire movie. It was perfect. And do you know how often I see gif sets of it? This is the second one I’ve seen since the movie came out (It’s been over 5 months, now).
So let’s just pause for a moment from reblogging gifs of Tony’s sass, Loki’s sex appeal, or Bruce’s fluffiness and just appreciate this nameless, old, German guy and how, even though he knew he would probably die, he stood up to a tyrant to prove that the human race wouldn’t give up their freedom so easily.
Friendly reminder that it’s implied that he’s a Holocaust survivor.
This scene gave me chills.
why is tommy wiseau playing thors brother
I DID NAHT TRY TO DESTORY EARTH! IT’S NOT TRUE! IT’S BULLSHIT I DID NAHT!
oh hi thor
AHM FED UP WITH DIS REALM!
OH MY GOD I’VE DIED
expbaronline: The Avengers Shot Challenge
Black Heart spiced rum
Wild Turkey American Honey
Captain Morgan: Tattoo
Absinthe (NV Absinthe Verte used)
Directions: For all shots, layer the ingredients in the order given (except for Thor, which should be stirred). If all the ingredients are chilled, it should be very easy to layer them.
A note from the creators and the ‘shot challenge’ explanation:
Happy Avengers Day one and all!! So the trick here is they get stronger the further you go down the list. We have the order very carefully placed and drinks carefully crafted to embody the heroes. We are using the movie universe avengers even though we are aware they were not the first avengers.
Doctor erskine was going to share blueberry schnapps with him, but he couldn’t have it. Also due to the advanced tissues on his organs he can’t get drunk, hence this shot is the weakest.
Tony stark has battled on and off with alcoholism so his tolerance for alcohol is high hence the high proof rum, yet he tries to not drink hence the grenadine to dilute the alcohol.
He is a god. He drinks after battle and can handle his alcohol, yet human alcohol seems to affect him more hence he is the middle.
Just a normal human with unbelievable accuracy with all fire arms, bow being his weapon of choice. (p.s. Unlike the trailers we here at EXPbaronline do support Hawkeye and think he is bad ass)
He’s the Hulk, and as he so eloquently has stated in the past, “HULK AM THE STRONGEST THERE IS!!!!!” hence he is last.
So there you have it the avengers shot challenge. Enjoy.
Spcial thanks to Alex Stephenson this week for his amazing art for the avengers shots. Check out his hilarious web comic Narcolepsy inc.
Congrats to EXPbaronline on creating this great looking shot series! If you’re still hungry for more Avengers drinks, don’t forget about Black Widow’s cocktail. Remember, always be responsible while drinking.
Day 2: Avengers Thor and Loki
Ah, yes. The controversial cosplay that is ravaging tumblr right now.
It’s a shame, really. This costume was my very first cosplay I’ve done from scratch. Right down to the top and skirt. However all that is being lost due to ignorance. In fact, this kind of attention is making my cousin ill. So this is why racism is important to acknowledge, why its important to realize how whiteness in our favorite media is helping to shape people into saying that we’re just silly ‘black girls’ for being anything else other than ‘gangsta’ girls and aunt jemimas.
My two favorite photos from the photoshoot at the Otakon Photo Booth.
My cousin is the lovely Lady Loki and I am Lady Thor.
Um I think you two did great, specially those helmets. Nice job. Then again I am Thor biased so way to go ^_^ . On another note, where did you find the Otakon pics I have been searching for what seems like forever.
can’t be thor and loki, my ass! both of you look fantastic and whoever says different is obvi jealous lbrh. oh and next time u should get a dude sif. i’m js
Accepting change or things that are not the usual can be hard. Some people simply refuse to make the effort. Or acknowledge the need to do so.
All I see here is two awesome ladies in two fabulous costumes having fun.
Anyone who sees anything else…well, they’re the problem. Not the two of you.
This is wonderful work! :D
glad that i saw the pics before the commentary. here’s what i thought:
that is so damn cool!
that’s amazing thor cosplay omg
in other news, LOKI’S HORNS. that all looks amazing, seriously!!
expbaronline: Black Widow (The Avengers cocktail)
1 oz. Vodka
.75 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. grenadine
- Pour the first three ingredients in a high ball or pint glass over ice
- Fill with cola of choice
- Stir gently
Note from the creators: “The black widow, Natasha Romanof, Russian born agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. What better way to encapsulate this Russian femme fetale than a sweet smooth variant on the Black Russian. This drink is smooth, sweet, and has just the hint of coffee flavour you’d want from a Kahlua drink.”
Drink created and photographed by EXPBarOnline.
Heat Exhaustion Symptoms
- Muscle cramps
- Pale skin
- Profuse sweating
- Sunken, dark eyes from dehydration
Do I need to remind you what he looked like during this entire scene?
He’s sweaty, his blood circulation isn’t working well due to vasoconstriction (namely, look at how pale his lips are,) and he’s got dark, sunken in eyes. Now we’ve got a point in which he trips and almost falls for some inexplicable reason. Well, let me ask you this.
How do you torture a frost giant?
Whedon wouldn’t just put in clips like this for no reason. He’s trying to show us something. The Loki we see here in this scene is not a healthy Loki, it’s a Loki who is weak and pale and probably focused on just staying conscious—a Loki who has probably been tortured by Thanos into submission and then sent out to do his dirty work for him, that way Thanos will never get the blame. Loki is just the puppet in the grand master scheme of things. Thanos is using him.
The Loki we see in Thor is radically different from the Loki we see in The Avengers. Sure, post-Thor, Loki is emotionally unstable, and maybe a little nuts, but he wasn’t a murderer. The only reason he went after Jotunheim is because he was having identity issues. Murder wasn’t something that was normal in his repertoire, yet we see him doing it frequently in The Avengers. The Loki we see at the end of Thor doesn’t want to live, let alone take over an entire realm that he had no interest in before. Something drastic must have happened between the two movies to have made Loki have such a huge character change.
It’s said that Thanos caught/rescued Loki after he fell from the Bifrost. Well, what did he do after that? Thanos is known for having telepathic powers, and since he had to have caught Loki knowing who he was and how strong he was, he likely broke into Loki’s mind to find out all of his fears and weaknesses. And once he found out all of Loki’s darkest secrets, it was easy to break him. He and the Chitauri took the Loki we saw in Thor and tortured and corrupted him until he was warped into their own personal demigod, ready to do their bidding. Why do you think Loki spouts off all these quotes about how “Freedom is life’s great lie,” and “In the end, you will always kneel”? He’s projecting.
So, when he trips? That’s the aftershocks of torture. That’s a Loki, weakened and struggling to stay upright, pushing forward through the pain because, otherwise?
“You will long for something as sweet as pain.”
He has to keep going because the alternative isn’t a question.
I usually don’t reblog this sort of thing, but dammit that’s good detail
or maybe it’s just because space portals are really really hot
i mean, it was a wee bit steamy…
but who knows?
waiting for answers in Thor/Avengers 2
This theory works really, really well. Thought it was just my imagination that Loki looked very, very sickly in the beginning!
The Prince of Egypt + Thor and Loki [ 1 / 2 ]
Guys, hey, guys. Do you remember that time that Coulson called Natasha and she ended up forming the Avengers? Remember how she did that by digging up Bruce Banner and introducing Steve to him then was the voice of reason when Tony and Steve were bickering and then how she brought Clint back from being mind controlled so that they can be a team? Remember that? Remember how the Black Widow out smarted a god? Remember that time she kept her shit together when the Hulk attacked her, even though she was really scared? Remember when she knocked an alien off his flying scooter and figured out how to drive it despite it being extrateresstrial tech, then got her ass up to the top of Stark Tower, found Loki’s staff and saved the world from being invaded by turning off the machine?
Remember how she was the central character of the whole freaking movie?
