This is what Milo picked out for Zachary. Milo looks like an investment banker, Zachary looks like he should be serving up ice cream at a drugstore in 1915.

Rct. Christopher Barnikel, Platoon 1057, Delta Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, struggles to continue exercising during an incentive training session June 12, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Barnikel, an 18-year-old from Lake Worth, Fla., and his fellow recruits completed a series of exercises to correct their minor disciplinary infractions. Delta Company is scheduled to graduate Aug. 29, 2014. Parris Island has been the site of Marine Corps recruit training since Nov. 1, 1915. Today, approximately 20,000 recruits come to Parris Island annually for the chance to become United States Marines by enduring 13 weeks of rigorous, transformative training. Parris Island is home to entry-level enlisted training for 50 percent of males and 100 percent of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. Octavia Davis)

In the early stages of intellectual development man was conscious of but a small part of the macrocosm. He knew nothing of the wonders of the microscopic world, of the molecules composing it, of the atoms making up the molecules and of the dwindlingly small world of electrons within the atoms. To him life was synonymous with voluntary motion and action. A plant did not suggest to him what it does to us—that it lives and feels, fights for its existence, that it suffers and enjoys. Not only have we found this to be true, but we have ascertained that even matter called inorganic, believed to be dead, responds to irritants and gives unmistakable evidence of the presence of a living principle within.
—  Nikola Tesla. “HOW COSMIC FORCES SHAPE OUR DESTINIES.” New York American, February 7, 1915.

The recruits wear helmets, flak vests, mouth guards and gloves as they fight in 15-second bouts with pugil sticks, large padded batons that represent rifles with affixed bayonets. Pugil stick training is part of the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, which fuses hand-to-hand combat skills with character development, yielding a strong, morally sound Marine warrior. Root, a 19-year-old from Jacksonville, Fla., and Moss, an 18-year-old from Green Pond, S.C., are scheduled to graduate Aug. 29, 2014.

When Mary Pickford first arrived in Los Angeles with D.W. Griffith in 1910, they stayed at the Alexandria Hotel while shooting films during the winter. 

Once the movie industry began to take root in Southern California, Pickford moved to Los Angeles with her family. One of her first homes was located at 1403 N. Western Avenue, near Sunset Blvd. The house is long gone.

The front of Mary Pickford’s two story bungalow, where she lived around 1915, featured stained Oregon pine. The front doors opened into a large living room finished with Mission oak. The fireplace was made of brick and set diagonally near the entrance to a dining room that opened off the sun porch. The dining room was described as small, but it contained a large cabinet. The second floor had three bedrooms with Mary’s room being decorated in white and pink. The kitchen, decorated in white tile, was located in back of the house, and in back of the property was a garage.

FANS OF THE HOBBIT & LOTR

you don’t have to have read the book

you don’t have to like all 13 dwarves

you don’t even have to know all their names

you don’t have to speak fluent Sindarin or know who Morgoth is or know what year Tolkien finished his studies at Exeter or even understand that the Necromancer is Sauron

YOU CAN STILL BE A FAN OF THE FILMS OK

elrond says ignore everyone who says otherwise ok and who can argue with that forehead
