Jim Henson, the creator of the Muppets, set out to make a film much darker than his previous efforts, as he believed that it was unhealthy for children to never be afraid. After enlisting illustrator Brian Froud and screenwriter David ODell, Henson gave them a homework assignment, of all things.
From here, they went and made The Dark Crystal, released in 1982. Since its release the film has become a cult classic, with praised to its dark tone and gorgeous visuals brought to us by creatively inventive effects. Many clamored for a follow-up, but this seemed unlikely following the death of Jim Henson in 1990.
However, back on On May 21, 2019, Netflixannounced that a 10 episode prequel series is set to premiere on August 30, 2019.

Now Netflix just dropped an incredible new look—a trailer.
Gosh, this show looks gorgeous. Plus, with a voice cast including Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, Eddie Izzard, Helena Bonham Carter, Toby Jones, Simon Pegg, Jason Isaacs, Benedict Wong, Harvey Fierstein, Mark Hamill, and many, many more this show is impressive.
Pride and Prejudice has plenty of iconic moments, especially between Elizabeth and Darcy. Their interest, hostility, and insults make for some of the book’s best scenes, and between movie adaptations and the staples of the art form, they’ve also generated a lot of quality memes.
When her family shows a lack of propriety:

We’ve all experienced conflicted feelings, but just maybe not on this level. Your family sucks! Marry me! Figure yourself out, man. He’s kind of a mess, but who isn’t? Anyway, it’s one of the things we love about him.
When people just don’t get you:

Classic Darcy. Of course, he does grow as a person, but damned if he isn’t pretty sure of himself in the beginning. The man’s too cool to dance at a wedding. Then again, Elizabeth might judge the things he says, and rightly so, but it’s not like she was dancing either.
When someone is just…. SO wrong:
Image via Pintrest
Our Elizabeth is a busy woman, with plenty of hobbies and plenty of suitors to reject, but sometimes correcting people has to take priority. We’ve all been there, and he probably said he doesn’t like the oxford comma too.
When your nemesis confesses their love:

Love? In this guy’s heart? It’s more likely than you think. No one sees it coming though, and certainly not Elizabeth. Of course, our girl isn’t down for long, and her rejection is maybe the most brutal and specific in literary history, but for a second there she’s just… who?
When you didn’t notice something for a really long time:

We can all be a bit oblivious sometimes. Maybe not “fail to notice when someone’s in love with us” oblivious, but you know. Besides, Darcy’s so contrary all the time, could anyone tell how he felt? The man is his own worst enemy.
Devastating news broke this weekend: Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus have separated. While the 29-year-old actor spends time with his brother, Thor, in Australia, Miley seems to be having the time of her life as she spends her days with blogger Kaitlynn Carter.

Their rocky on-again, off-again relationship seemed to get steady once the two got married, but now it seems they’ve split up for good. It’s a sad day indeed.
“You don’t understand what it’s like,” Liam told Daily Mail Australia when asked about the split. “I don’t want to talk about it, mate.”

Any breakup is bad, it leaves both parties plagued with questions of ‘What If’, and as we sit on the sidelines we can’t help but feel a little sorry for both actors. So while Hemsworth and Cyrus pick up the pieces, here are 6 books we can cry into.
What might be John Green’s magnum opus, The Fault in Our Stars tells a beautiful love story about two young people who, against the odds, find love.
We have precious Hazel Crace Lancaster, a 16-year-old girl with thyroid cancer who falls in love with 17-year-old Augustus Waters, a cancer survivor who seems too good to be true. Is he all he seems to be, or will he breaks this young girl’s heart?

The ultimate answer is ‘yes’ to both questions. August is all he seems to be and his love for Grace and her love for him shows that while life be cruel and give us a bad hand every once and a while, it can also be beautiful.
Want to cry your heart out? Or are you crying too many years already? Don’t worry! We have others picks and all you need to do is scroll down.
You won’t cry tears when reading this novel. Well, you might, but they will be tears of joy. Tears at the hilarious depiction of manners gone overboard, tears at the idea that marriage is all you need, and tears when Elizabeth Bennet finally convinces her father the difference between superficial goodness and actual goodness.

Elizabeth Bennet marries who she wants to in the end, and he, against the odds loves her back. It’s a story about how love finds a way and, if it’s not meant to be, it won’t happen.
I’m crying already.
Don’t like this old book? Is the writing style too strange and foreign to you? Well, our next pick might be far more inclined with your modern tastes.
Twilight. Read the first book, get addicted, read the other three. It’s a story about a hot and cold romance (like Liam and Miley) that ultimately leads to marriage.
You know what happens next? It’s so beautiful, so wonderful…
They stay together and have a beautiful child!

And you know what happens to Jacob, that wonderful werewolf who was in love with Bella but she wasn’t in love with him? It doesn’t in tragedy, no, it ends with him imprinted on her child, ultimately proving that even if you breakup with someone you still have a chance to take care of their child and be apart of their life.
Now I know what you’re thinking: Why the Shining? Well, if you think the multiple breakups between Liam and Miley are bad, here’s a book that says ‘it could be worse’.
Now most of you have seen the film adaptation and I’m here to tell you the book is totally different. For one, Jack doesn’t go after his family with an ax, he goes after them with roque mallet!

Also instead of Jack trying to murder his wife and child and ultimately freezing to death, in the book he stops trying to kill his wife and child and instead scarifies himself by going after the ghosts which leads to him being simultaneously burnt and blown up!

So if you think Liam and Miley’s breakup is the worst thing that could happen, well, we could have frozen/burned to death.
This book shows that even after a break-up, things can still be beautiful.
Meet Lucy. She and her boyfriend broke up nine years ago but she’s still picking the pieces. Nothing is going well. Tinder is filled with “douche bros” and the sea outside the Los Angeles home where she’s dog-sitting only shows her how lost and empty she is.

But then Lucy becomes entranced by an eerily attractive swimmer named Theo. He is a merman, and things only get weirder from there.
The Pisces is not only swimming with dark humor (standout lines include “As we kissed I imagined eating his tail with garlic butter and “the tail starts below the dick”), it proves that life, like the ocean, continues on and on even after the worst of tides.
As we cry over this sudden and unexpected breakup, there will come a time when we have to say enough is enough. But we might need some help in admitting that, so maybe we should open up and cry into this inspiring self-help novel by Oprah Winfrey.

Hello internet denizens. Do you Like Homer? Sappho? Memes? Allow me to introduce you to the swirling vortex that is the classics fandom. It may have been two-hundred years since they got any new material, but the community is still going strong. Let’s take a look.
Here, a meme about the greatest intellectual tragedy of all time.

But it’s not all about history. Here are some about the Iliad.

Alright, so it wasn’t a gift, it was a sacrifice to the gods that the Trojans were foolish enough to steal, but I’m not mad about it. Trojan horse memes may be antique, but they’re classic (heh).
How about another Iliad meme, this time thanks to Parks and Rec.

No opinions on the Iliad? No worries! There are general interest memes as well, about things like the Greek gods.

Zeus is a thot. That’s the real takeaway. There’s actually a lot of comedic Zeus hate, which is honestly incredibly valid. Try this one on for size.

Of course, it didn’t work out very well for Prometheus, but at least he got a burn in before being chained… to a rock… and having his liver… repeatedly eaten. Yikes. He’s definitely going to need more than aloe.
Just one more history meme before I go.

March fifteenth may have come and gone somehow, but jokes about stabbing Caesar don’t have to be contained to one date, and next year, when you see this last meme, you’ll know it’s come.
