the ride of her life

I’ve seen that gif of Maka tripping Ox during the Hiro/Excalibur episode and I just keep laughing at Soul because Maka just straight wipes out Ox without hesitation and Soul’s expression is like

HOLY SHIT MAKA DID YOU JUST

but then

I mean whatever it’s fine

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson joking about one of her many husbands and talking, for what seems like the first time ever, about the time she told him she was pregnant.

DD: “There’s a guy…”
GA: “There’s this guy who works on The X-Files…”

DD: I remember when I heard you were pregnant.
GA: I remember telling you. I remember you told me that your knees went out. Do you remember that Blue had just gotten her shots? She was lying on the bed in your trailer. Blue had just gotten… you know, had been… neutered?
DD: Yeah. Well, something like that. But she was — you were— it was quite a moment.
GA: It was.
DD: Yeah.
GA: I don’t think I realized… I didn’t realize at the time how quite that moment was.
DD: Yeah. I don’t remember what I said.

Dragon Age gets REAL weird when you choose the older skin textures…

Especially when you’re a Trevelyan dating Cullen. 

In Casablanca I fell right back to where I’d come from. David O. Selznick liked it because at last I was going to wear lovely gowns and clothes and look pretty. Oh, it was difficult in Hollywood to play against what Hollywood made you. As I have said, they typecast everyone. All the actors—Gary Cooper, James Stewart,  Cary Grant, Humphrey Bogart—they were always playing themselves. But I came from Sweden where acting meant the certainty of change. You played old people, young people, nasty people, good people, but you rarely played what you looked like or what you were. You got inside somebody else’s skin.

Now Michael Curtiz, the Hungarian director of Casablanca and a very experienced and talented director, picked up the same old theme. ‘Ingrid, you’re so wrong, that’s not what they do in America. America is type-casting. The audience want it at the box office. They pay their money to see Gary Cooper being Gary Cooper, not the hunchback of Notre Dame. So you are going to ruin your career by trying to change and do different things. From now on you should simply be Ingrid Bergman; do the same thing, play the same sort of role all the time, and you develop this one attractive side that the audience will love.’

I said, ‘No, I’m not going to do that. I’m going to change. I’m going to change as much as I can.’

—Ingrid Bergman, My Story

Filed under: Sedan, Performance, Videos, Subaru, HumorSubaru is getting into viral videos with two new, radically different shorts to promote the 2015 WRX STI; both are pretty entertaining. They are certainly more interesting, from an enthusiast perspective, than the company’s dog-oriented advertising campaign and sponsorship of the Puppy Bowl.
The first promotes a new grindhouse-style short film that Subaru is launching, which is cheekily called The Ride of Her Life, and it previews the full deal due on March 13. While It’s just a glimpse at the moment, if Subaru really leans into the cheesy, 1970s-style, then the full video could be really enjoyable.

The second video is a new take on an idea we’ve seen before but is still very cool. There might be some digital trickery going on in some of the “Stick bomb" shots, but the result is still exciting. Plus, the STI’s Nürburgring livery is quite attractive. Scroll down to check them both out and tell us which you prefer in Comments.

NASA-partnered Gov Doc/Site: Sally Ride Science & Sally Ride ISS EarthKam

Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, and her life partner Tam O’Shaughnessy, started Sally Ride Science in 2001 to inspire young people—especially girls—to stick with their interest in science and to consider pursuing careers in science and engineering. She served as CEO of the company until her death on July 23, 2012, after a 17-month battle with pancreatic cancer.

Sally was finishing her Ph.D. in physics at Stanford University in 1977 when she answered a NASA newspaper ad seeking astronaut candidates. When she blasted off aboard the space shuttle Challenger on June 18, 1983, she became the first American woman—and, at 32, the youngest American—in space. Sally’s historic flight made her a symbol of the ability of women to break barriers and a hero to generations of adventurous young girls. She flew on Challenger again in 1984 and later was the only person to serve on both panels investigating the nation’s space shuttle disasters—the Challenger explosion in 1986 and the breakup of the shuttle Columbia on reentry in 2003.

After retiring from NASA, Sally became a physics professor, a NASA consultant and, with O’Shaughnessy, an award-winning author of science books for children. She used her high profile to champion a cause she cared about passionately—igniting students’ enthusiasm for science and piquing their interest in careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. At Sally Ride Science, she guided the creation of innovative classroom programs (such as NASA’s EarthKam), classroom materials, and professional development programs for teachers and students.

In 2013 Sally was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

You’d think secret supernatural societies would be an interesting enough concept by themselves, and yet most YA fantasy literature is like

“Jade Kowalski’s life is super boring until she falls in love with the sexy and mysterious Damian, who turns out to be a dragon-riding were-vampire prince turned assassin. But his secret supernatural world is in danger! Can their young love survive the upcoming epic mage battles?”

and I’m like wgaf tell me more about the epic mage battles those seem kind of important and, well… epic.
