I like how everyone seems like they’re dead tired and Thor’s just there going
'om nom nom this is a shawarma nom nom nom'
Notice how Clint and Natasha seemed to have appropriated half of each others’ chairs.
and I think Tony is just realizing that he literally died and was scared back to life by the man to his left
and steve, being the senior citizen, is simply nodding off
and Bruce is just grateful someone found him some pants.
Yeah but can we also just be impressed with the shawarma restaurant that stayed open through an alien invasion?
It’s New York. There’s a very good chance that the owner got the place open within minutes of the dust clearing because he remembered 9/11 and how the restaurants that donated food to the responders the next morning were some of the most celebrated places in the city for a time. There are probably a whole bunch of catering trays full of sandwiches on their way to some Red Cross response truck to be handed out to the cops and paramedics and firefighters on the scene. As far as the restaurant’s concerned, this is in the same category as feeding a bunch of concrete-dust-covered cops who wandered through the door because they were too tired to make it to their usual place- these guys saved the city’s ass, Mahmoud, clear some space and get them something to eat.
And maybe offer them a free souvenir t-shirt when they go, because they’re selling them- see, at the counter there? There’s a bunch of NYC small restaurants that do that. Tony’s probably going home with a T-shirt from this place at the very least.
Welcome to New York. :)
Yep. Thats the NY I love.

This photo pulls at my heartstrings in ways that I can’t begin to explain.

Hey, everybody, this quote is from Jeff Greenstein, a comedy writer who created Husbands with Jane Espenson: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Greenstein
The above quote is a silly joke he fired off on Twitter months ago at midnight. I can understand someone not getting this was a joke because there is so much outrageous and egregious whiteness out there, but this isn’t a case of it.
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here - 1975
think it’s probably impossible to convey what a good Hipgnosis sleeve felt like to a music-obsessed child in the pre-internet age. they undersold: there were powerful images and a paucity of extraneous information, always. you couldn’t ask them “why is the man on fire?” you just had to accept that the businessman-lookin’ dude was on fire, on a soundstage or in a business park or wherever, and he was shaking hands with a dude who didn’t seem to understand that the other dude was on fire, and that the accompanying text was wish you were here
"less is more" is a cliché, but "the information you hold back grows larger in the unlocatable dark" isn’t, and Hipgnosis knew this
It was this principle that made the Alpha songs so powerful to me when I first heard them: this sense of getting pieces of a whole story that’s always just out of reach.
