Hey guys I made this documentary about my friend John Carr and I got an A+ and I’m stoked!

July 2, 2015

There was some drama this morning regarding the 2009 and 2010 timelines that were on the phan directory, as they were taken down. There are different theories about it being taken down by Google, Instagram, Tumblr, or Dan and Phil personally.

Some good explanations of what happened are from averyiscoldpizza, eternallyphan, and phansparent.

Phil tweeted about his new coffee maker:

Dan tweeted about wearing black:

There was a fake account commenting on Dan and Phil’s gaming videos saying this:

Don’t click on the link, it’s a spam account. (source)

Also, here’s some possible information about Dan’s gaming documentary (from updatedphan and this tumblr post):

There was also this article written about Dan accidentally favoriting the Virgin America Tweet. (I found out from updatedphan and this tweet)

And that’s it! Thanks so much for reading, and click here to check out my main blog. Have a great day/night/life!

What would the Nordic's favourite movies/genres of movies be?

iceland likes nature documentaries 

sweden likes action movies and chick flicks

denmark likes disney and superhero movies and action

finland thinks that badly made horror movies are funny and he likes chick flicks

nor likes scandinavian comedies

I am obsessed with documentaries. You get an insight on people that you would have otherwise never known. You get to really see things from their perspective. At the same time there is no pressure, because you aren’t there with them IRL. You just get to learn some cool stuff, and get out once you are satisfied.

How Twitter Perfectly Captured the Complexity of #HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl

by C. Imani Williams

The Twitter hashtag #HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl, created by Jada Mosley, garnered over 21,000 tweets on its first day, and its still going. Mosely’s vision for the hashtag came after she viewed a documentary on LGBTQ individuals for a college psychology course. The conversation manifested into a space for Black women and girls to discuss how we grapple with the complexities of our lives and navigate the impacts of current events—such as the tragedy and senseless loss of life in Charleston; the continuous acts of interpersonal and institutional violence perpetrated against black women; and the time we spent as community watching the unraveling of Rachel Dolezal’s co-opting and appropriation of black women and culture.


#HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl became an online empowerment space—utilizing video, memes, and heartfelt words for and by us. Through #HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl, we could vent and express ourselves honestly about the stereotypes and “-isms” projected onto us via white supremacy and an uninformed sense of black consciousness. Through the hashtag, our tweets on sass, boldness, hurts, hopes, and humor were all welcome.

The hashtag pointed to the truths experienced by black women. They ranged from taunts over skin tone (being considered too fair or too dark), to the complexity of love and interpersonal relationships with black men. The tweets showed a definitive disconnect between black women and men on an intrinsic level. The discord had some sisters feeling as if they are not respected, protected, or wanted by our brothers. The rejection many black women face by being passed over for white, Asian, and Latina women leaves sisters, wondering where the black man’s love is for his mother and sisters.

The tweets showed a need for black men, white people, and and other people of color to better understand who we, as black women, are. They show how often black women have to summon grace as we encounter sexism, racism, ageism, and homophobia in our daily affairs. Society and media see us as less than, doing the most to try and destroy our warrior energy and spiritual reserves. They fear us most of all.

Thus, our collective stories and concerns, shared through bite sized 140 character chunks, broke down the dynamics of black women’s everyday lived experiences. Below are ten tweets that sum up the complex beauty and struggle of #HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl for the rest of the world.

1. We’re expected to speak up for others, but never for ourselves. 


1. We’re expected to speak up for others, but never for ourselves.

 
2. We’re always expected to be the “Strong Black Woman” and nothing else.

 
3. We’re stereotyped as being angry, violent, and unstable.  

 
 

4. We often have to work twice as hard without any of the recognition.

 
5. Our resilience is seen as undesirable.

 
6. We’re often never allowed to trust or see our own beauty.

 
7. We are hypersexualized and objectified, but never seen as human beings deserving of love.

 
8. And yet, despite all this… We love what being a Black girls means.

 
9. We can uplift and affirm ourselves.  

 
10. #HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl? “Good as hell…”


#HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl is an ongoing exercise in speaking up and out as Black women. We must be responsible for finding and implementing solutions that aid in our well-being. Sisters are doing it for ourselves. Thank you to Jada Mosley for bringing new energy. And we need to keep the momentum moving. Let others know: #HowItFeelsToBeABlackGirl.

hi alex, where can we see stana do the spotting/spot turn? hahaha i'm curious

You can see it really obviously here it’s so lovely:

It’s from the bts documentary of for lover’s only called How We Made Love :)

anonymous asked:

why did you decide to go vegan? is it affordable?

I went vegan when i watched earthlings - it utterly broke my heart. after watching the documentary, i didn’t even ‘decide’ to go vegan - there was no question for me - i just literally couldn’t perpetuate any industry that was in any way affiliated with the awful things i’d seen, and i couldn’t eat meat, i could barely look at it without feeling like crying! so, realising that Earthlings is from the US, i researched into animal welfare in the UK, but didn’t like what i found - the cruelty goes on here too, and even though we have stricter laws regulating the way animals are slaughtered and how much space each animal must have, they’re rarely enforced and a large proportion of the meat we consume in the UK is imported from countries with much slacker laws regarding factory farming (mostly because it’s cheaper to import this meat than it is to buy local, sustainably sourced meat! - it’s all about the profit with these industries)

I knew i couldn’t consume animal products knowing this information (i spent about a week researching absolutely everything i could and watching every documentary i could find), so i did some research into the nutritional side of things to see if i could be vegan and still be healthy - what i found out amazed me!! i read all sides of the argument i could find (i have a pretty obsessive personality and when i’m interested in something i go at it full force haha) and i truly believe, after reading studies and medical journals on the topics, that veganism/plant-based eating is hands down the healthiest, most compassionate and most fruitful (in both meanings hehe) diet on the planet! 

it’s most definitely affordable - a pack of chicken could be like £4-6, and it’ll last you like 2 days maybe.. well i buy a bag of rice for £1 that lasts me for a whole week! i get 18kg of bananas (which lasts two weeks) for £6, like 3kg of potatoes for £3… if you know where to shop, then fresh produce and frozen veg/fruit and then just getting oats, rice, beans, pasta, etc. is super healthy!! the vegan alternatives (to butter and milk) are often much cheaper than their dairy counterparts!! it’s such a myth that veganism is expensive - of course if you’re wanting to buy the superfoods and the fake meats and the ready made meals, etc. then it’s going to be more expensive, but that shouldn’t be synonymous with veganism, since you can be vegan and never consume these things!! find what’s cheapest in your area and work with that :) xxx

JOURNEY INTO THE SUN'S GUTS WITH BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH AS YOUR GUIDE

Without the sun, life on Earth would be impossible. It provides food for the plants that feed us, and warmth so that we don’t freeze to death. But the sun has a dark side. It is, after all, a giant ball of fire in the sky, whose 27 million degree Fahrenheit surface is tossed about by burning tsunami waves 62,000 miles high. And at pretty much any point, it could burp out rivers of charged particles that could paralyze technology on Earth.

A new documentary premiering tonight asks the question, “What can cause our normally benign sun to erupt in such fury that it can threaten the world’s power and technological infrastructure?“ according to a press release.

To answer that question, [Solar Superstorm] takes audiences into the inner workings of our star. It follows the path of hot magnetized gas from deep inside the sun, through its tangled journey through the Sun’s churning outer layers and on to explosive magnetic eruptions so powerful they can affect the Earth.

The documentary is narrated by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch, and it’s based on supercomputer simulations that are making it easier to understand where solar eruptions come from, and how to predict them. Also, it’s gorgeous.

The National Center For Supercomputing Applications has five clips that you can watch on their site.

Hi:) Firstly I just wanted to thank you for your blog it's really helped me with being vegan. Also I was wandering whether you could post a short-ish list of vegan pros and carnist cons or something like that about health, the environment, people, and animals? (So that I can tell people the main reasons to be vegan with out waffling on and them drifting away) Thanks :) <3

Hi there lihi-or-something ! Thanks :) I’m glad my blog has helped you a little! 

Here are some reasons for going vegan with its corresponding sources. I totally recommend you to look at Cowspiracy as is a very eye-opening documentary that you can show to your friends without worrying about gore scenes *except just for 1 scene. 

  • Much healthier to avoid meat animal productsResearch shows that plant-based diets are cost-effective, low-risk interventions that may lower body mass index, blood pressure, HbA1C, and cholesterol levels. They may also reduce the number of medications needed to treat chronic diseases and lower ischemic heart disease mortality rates. Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients, especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity.
