(国立競技場について)
麻生 副総理として
どんなデザインがいいとお考えなのか。

答)
最初のデザインは覚えていますか。

あの最初のデザインを見て何を思いましたか。

野田内閣の田中眞紀子文部科学大臣の時のものは道路を2つまたいでいたでしょう。

決議を決めたのは菅内閣。
デザインを決めたのは野田内閣。
担当大臣、田中真紀子さんだったでしょう。

道路の上にこんなものができるという許可を国土交通省が下ろしてもいないので、そういったものができるというふうなことはとても考えられない 

と言って、政権が代わってすぐ1月にその話が来たから言いましたよ。次にオリンピックがとれたらという話で、当時はまだとれていなかったのだから、デザインが今から間に合わないからこれでやりますという話だったので、あの時は竹田さんやら河野さんとかが来られていたので、まさか私が元オリンピック選手だからといってローザンヌまで連れていかれるとは思っていなかったので、

デザインとして何か競技場、今のままではないということははっきりしていますので、今さら他のデザインは間に合わないと。それはそうだろうと言われたので、あれはあのまま出すことになった。そういう経緯だったでしょう。

それで結果としてこういったものがどうですかと言われたので、
物理的に国土交通省やら何やらの許可が下りるとはとても思えない。
高さは周りのビルより高いというようなものなのではないですか。

神宮というところは、人工林ですけれども、明治神宮の内苑等は、全部自然で循環していて東京都内では数少ない人工の自然林です。そういうところにバサバサ倒してやるというのはいかがなものですか、最小限でいくことを考えないといけないのではないか、したがって自然の中にうまくいくようなことを考えたらどうですかと言いました。

私は担当ではないから、そういうものなのではないですかということを申し上げて、とれたら東京都のしかるべきものを出すというお話ができ上がっていたそうですが、その引き継ぎは行われていないと。聞かされた今の知事も知らないという話になっていて、話がさらに込み入ったという話なので、政権が交代したのと東京都側も知事が交代したのと、いろいろな理由が重なって話がごちゃごちゃして、そこに資材費の高騰、人件費の高騰等があって額が巨大に重なってしまったという結果ですけれども、

どう考えても額が大き過ぎると私はそう思います。(抜粋)

New Luna mof just finished for a customer! 

You can order your own luna here! £110 + Postage

They measure approximately 5" tall and have steel shot at the end of their limbs and in their bums to give them balance and a realistic flop. The rest of their bodies have been stuffed with polyester so they are squashy.

Their bodies are entirely machine stitched in cuddlesoft fabric, they feel very soft and warm.

Heads, hands and feet have been cast in resin and have been painted and varnished.

Some feedback! 

★★★★★ - I’ve had my eye on Maddy’s mofs for a long, long time and I’m absolutely THRILLED that I now finally have one of my own! This mof is absolutely gorgeous in person! The craftsmanship of the wings, the head, the feet–everything!– is spot on and super high quality! She really does look like a real, living, breathing (albeit giant) moth! It’s amazing. Her work is fantasy made real! I so very hope that sometime in the future I can get another mof to keep my schinia company! In the mean time, I’m very happy to have her.Thanks so much, Maddy! :D

★★★★★ - Mof is an awesome piece of art. I have bought a few pieces from Magweno - it is a super efficient shop to buy from with superb customer service and quality of product. Definitely recommended artisan. Thank you once again Maddy for my Mof. He sits with me at work and keeps me in supurb company - reminding me that fantasy can be just a small distance away from us at any time….

★★★★★ - LOVE my custom mof! Maddy truly has a unique and one-of-a-kind gift, on top of being very friendly, informative, and willing to please. Everything about the transaction–from the order process, to shipping, to the final product–is top notch! I’ll definitely be ordering from her again in the future!

Herbalist, I have come to plead; gong-striker!

You prepared some medicine for me recently; gong-striker!

You warned me not to touch my mouth with my hands; gong-striker!

You warned me not to touch my mouth with my legs:; gong-striker!

I touched the soup with my hands and I put it to my mouth; gong-striker!

I touched it with my feet and I put it to my mouth; gong-striker!

I looked at my stomach and it was swollen; gong-striker!

Herbalist, I have come to plead; gong-striker!

Herbalist, I have come to plead; gong-striker!


This Yoruba folk song, is based on a folktale about a tortoise whose wife was unable to conceive a child. The tortoise went to a herbalist on behalf of his wife to collect her fertility treatment meal. The herbalist warned the tortoise not to eat the meal as it was meant for women only. However, on his way home, the tortoise was tempted by the aroma and ate the meal. When he got home, he had to lie to his wife that the treatment was not ready. Shortly afterwards, his stomach began to swell and he was in unbearable pain. He summoned his energy and began to sing the song above to attract pity on his way to see the herbalist. When he got to the herbalist, it was too late for any antidote to work, and so the tortoise died. This story is used to warn against the consequences of greed, disobedience and lying. 

This is Tom in the middle of shouting out his favorite speech (”Once more unto the breach”) in the Muse of Fire 2 interview. I want you to look at his pupils. 

This man has multiple lights on him. Bright lights. But, his pupils are quite large. He is so excited by this speech.

In fact, if you look at him at the beginning or end of this same interview, his pupils are not this large.

aptou asked:

From Scream the tv series 1x4 ''You see lairs on TV, not in real life. Take Pretty Little Liars. They're always chock-full mof bloody clues and creepy unrealistic icons. I mean, seriously, how would A get her hands on four Victorian dolls that look just like the main characters? Where do you shop for that? Evil American Girl Doll store?'' lol

we’ve come so far

Found a stunning magpie moth while we were stomping bracken as well. Gonna have to make a Mof doll of this guy 😊 #moth #mof

anonymous asked:

I don't understand why that anon so bitter about Torrilla? She was nothing but respectful. The MoF interview was a genuine mistake - didn't stop other fans from getting hold of it. At least Torrilla made sure everything was sourced properly, from fan photos to other interviews, which some people don't seem to care about these days. as long as they get stuff they don't care where it came from. :\ i bet that anon reblogged everything they could get from her when she was on here. *smh*

I hate it when i make sincere posts and they get reblogged by ‘activists’ who just want of make themsleves feel good or like those people who wnt to build arguments off mof my posts. 

it’s different for me to talk about my relationship with Muslims and different for y’all to use my posts to push your “Islam is evil oppressive blah blah blah” narratives.
