Felix Gonzalez-TorresUntitled (Perfect Lovers) 1991. Clocks, paint on wall.
Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time due to the failure of the batteries and the nature of the mechanism. In a moving comment on his personal experiences, the piece refers to Gonzalez-Torres’ HIV positive partner Ross Laycock, and his slow decline and inevitable death due to AIDS. The clocks act as two mechanical heartbeats; representative of two lives destined to fall out of sync, and holds a poignant poetry about personal loss and the temporal nature of life.
“Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us…We conquered fate by meeting at a certain time in a certain space…we are synchronized, now forever. I love you.”

THIS WILL BE SUCH A LONG MARATHON AND I AM SO READY

That’s prob about 12 hours

extended lotr alone is 11 hours and 22 minutes.

LOTR Extended = 681 minutesHobbit 1 Extended = 182 minutesHobbit 2 Extended = approx. 186 minutesLet’s say Hobbit 3 Extended is at least 185 minutes
The full marathon run time will be around 1234 minutes, or 20 hours 30 minutes.

#perfect that leaves 3 and a half hours for snack runs and pee breaks

❝ When I went to my first fan convention in New Jersey, in my first few minutes on-stage I realized I just couldn’t do what everyone expected. I tried to answer the questions, but I just felt like, a) this is too boring; and b) I don’t know enough about the show to answer the questions accurately. The average fan knows a lot more about it than I do! So I just started playing with it to make it more fun for me. And before I knew it, as the months went by, that became my onstage character. It’s funny, the same thing happens when you’re building a character for a show. You just start playing with stuff, and then certain things become codified and that’s how that character remains. I think that’s what happened with Castiel on Supernatural, with his physicality, vocal quality, and the way he stares blankly at people. None of that was based on conscious decisions, but little things that fell into place, and then that just became how it was. That’s part of what happened with me onstage and with Twitter as well. Although on Twitter, I was more consciously satirizing the self-important celebrity from the beginning. ❞
